"I believe the At'iericaa is the best eater
in the world," said Robert A. Howard, of
Baltimore, "as he Is also thy best fed man.
He knows what is good to eat and how to
cook it, and rombiiu - in hi menu the best
dishes of all nations; but w th all that he
is woefully deficient in hi eating in one
very essential respect, and that is he per
sists in slicing his baker's 1 read as he dors
a pound rake. On a recent t rip to Europe
I noticed that the Frenchman never cuts
his bread, and the man w ho applies bis
knife to a loaf in a Frond restaurant or
hotel is at once set down a.- ill bled. The
Frenchman always breaks his bread and
pulls it t pieces instead of slicing it as we
do. There is excellent serse in this cus
tom too, as I have found, for baker's bread
eaten as the Frenchman eat it is undoubt
edly sweeter and tastes much fresher."

How Tonimle Came Home.
"Stranger," said the o.tl man coming
closer, "if ever you war a father you will
know how I feel this night; that boy have
been down in the bitj city for ever iso lo;ii
now, goin on ter seven year. None of us
kuowed why he went away; but he writ to
us the other day that he wareomin iwcio
terniKht, and the oM lady is up in the
cabbin, with a bl.azin lire an lots of things
cooked up fer to welcome him hum. We
have a fiddler and some of the Ixiys jc: t

all the gals alnrnt the ptecsH be there

"Indeed I do. It will be grand."
"Well, my eye. They do say as how Tom-
mie has growed in the big city, an how
he's gettin way up in the business world.
But he was never no boy ter ferget his old
friends. There is Pete Tyler, an Ab Gos

the rest. Rube has brought up his big
bassoon, an you bet there will be high old

an white dresses. Say, stranger, suppose
you draps in at the party, eh, an leads the
ole women out fer a whirl in the mazy?"
Just then there was a loud shriek, and
the train came thundering around the
"It's him, it's him, dead sure," cried the
old man gleefully. "Yon let it's my Tom
mie come home again. Oosh it all. I kind
er wish I'd put a bit more taller on the
cowhides, so as to make 'em shine inore,
but Tonimie will know me all the same!"
The old man's fare glowed with expecta
tion. Half a dozen pasnetigers left the
train. Finally out came a tall pink and
white, blue eyed dude, sucking a cane and
wearing a tuft of hair between Lis eyes.
