Didn't Liks Being s Gentlemen.
Among Captain R. W. Eastwick's recol
lections are some of Colonel Wellesley, af
terward world renowned as the Duke of
Wellington, who told him a story of a ser
geant in Weilesley's regiment. After the
declaration of war with France, and when
an invasion of England was feared, many
volunteer regiments were raised, and this
sergeant was selected to drill one of them.
Later, through the influence of an officer
of the regiment, lie received a cadetship in
the Bengal forces.
The sergeant went to India, but being
quite unaccustomed to mingle with gen
tlemen, soon found himself out of place,
borne time afterward he heard that his old
commander, Colonel Wellesley, was In
Calcutta, lie obtained leave of absence
and hastened to that city, where he called
upon the colonel and explained his uncom
"Sir," he said, "I am tired of being a
gentleman, and desire to be degraded back
to my former post in fact, to become a
sergeant in the Thirty-third again would
be promotion to me."
Colonel Wellesley was glad to have so
capable a man in his service, but felt In
honor bound to remonstrate with him for
so mistaking his own interest.
"You have attained the position of a
gentleman," he said, "and should strive to
become worthy of it." He advised him
therefore to return to his duties.
The sergeant would not listen to him.
"Saving your presence, sir," he declared,
"a gentleman is a mighty poor thing to be.
It is like being under continual arrest. A
man may not do that which he desires,
that which comes natural to him, but must
always be thinking of his behavior, and
whether what lie does is in accordance
with his station. I would sooner be a pri
vate in the line, and master of my own ac
tions when off duty, thnn colonel of tbe
regiment and pestered with trying to act

Charlotte Cush man's Love Affair.
Charlotte Cush man, the actress, was in
love but once in her life. She met in Cin
cinnati, where she was playing, an actor
named Clark, with whom she fell in love.
Through her efforts Clark was advanced
to leading man in the company, nd the
course of true love ran smoothly.
One night the actress met a strange
woman lehind the scenes between the acts.
The woman came up to her and addressed
"You are Charlotte Cushman, the great
actress. Haven't you got enough men to
admire yon without coming between man
and wife and robbing me of my husband?',
"Your husband:'' cried Miss Cushman,
"Yes, and you have taken or you are
trying to take him from me," continued the
ragged woman, looking Miss Cushman full
in the face.
"Who is your husband ?"
"Conrad Clark," replied the woman,
"the father of this child," pointing to a
half starved, thin little child in her arms.
Miss Cushman started ns if she had been
She went through her part that night
as usual acted it splendidly brought
down the house; then, after the perform
ance, she sent for Clark to come to her
dressing room. Clark knocked and then
opened the door. She brought forward to
him his wife and baby, who had been wait
ing in the dressing room to receive him.
Such a reception! Charlotte Cushman
never looked or acted so grandly on the
stage in all her life as he did that night
in her dressing room. She waved Clark
away with a greater majesty than ever as
Queen Catherine she waved away Cardi
nal Wolsey, and then going to her hotel
probably she had a good crying spell.
But she never loved again. Philadel
A Strange Tttiildingr Legend.
Nine master masons who were engaged
in building a citadel in t he time of the
Voi void Neagoe found on returning to
their work eaeli morning that the portion
of the wall which they had completed the
day before had fallen to pieces during the
night and was lying in a heap of ruins in
the ditch. Manol, of Curtea, the head ma
son, informed his comrades one morning
that a voice from heaven had warned him
in his sleep the night before that their la
bors would continue to come to naught
unless they all swore on that very morn
ing to immure in the structure the first
woman, 1m; it wife, mother, daughter or
sister, who should arrive with the morn
ing meal of one or either of them. The
all took the oath, and the last man had
hardly been sworn when Manol's own wife
appeared carrying her husband's break
fast. The oah was kept, and the woman,
known in the legend as "Flora of the
Fields," was murdered and her blood and
flesh incorporated with the wall of ma
sonry. A curious practice of the Bulgarian
masons ( the above scene is laid in Bulgaria),
which survives to this day, testifies to the
vitality of the legend. To insure the solid
ity of the houses they build they measure
with a reed the shadow of the first person
who passes after the digging of the founda
tion has leen completed. When the founua
tion is commenced this reed is buried under
the first rock, usually the cornerstone.

The oarsman considers the angler an in

the river for the purpose of soaking a line

The oarsman gets up at the same time,

The oarsman sometimes tumbles into
the water, iu.d it often happens that an
angler close by fishes him out. That is
why the oarsman despises the angler. But
the angler laughs at this contempt. What

greatest pleasure in the world is to fish

The Time to Do the Counting.
In the old days of impetuous warfare
caution was not regarded as so much a
virtue on the part of a military commander
as at present. In a battle between French
and Austrians, in which Marshal Bugeaud
commanded tbe i rench forces, an officer
of the staff said to the marshal: "The en
emy are advancing. Shall I send a party
to reconnoiter and see how numerous they
are?" "Xo," Baid Bugeaud, "we'll count
em after we've beaten 'em." San Fran
