"These was a queer old fellow in a com

with in London," said an actor. "He was

cast for the Friar in 'Romeo and Juliet.'
He got on well enough until he came to
one of the speeches that rhyme, and I'm
blessed if lie didn't go right on rhyming
through all the rest of that scene. He
never hesitated for a word either. When
he had a speech with me afterward, he
stopped in the middle of it and began to
look over the audience. I gave him his
lines in a whisper and he began to be
troubled with a most tremendous cough
that didn't deceive anybody. A night or
two afterward he was in about the same
state and made a pretty bad break in one
place. I 'fed' him his lines, though, and he
got through after a fashion. j
"As we went off he caught me by the
hand and with tears in his eyes told me I
was one of the right sort and that he
would never forget my kindness. 'Ah, sir,
yon don't know what I am laboring under
just at present,' said he. I thought it was
about a pint of gin, but I didn't say so.
'Ah, sir, he went on, 'my poor sister died
today.' I told him I was very sorry and
advised him to stay out of the cast for a
few nights. Later one of the women, as
she was going to her dressing room, said
to anothnr, 'Isn't it really too bad about
poor old B s brother:' 'What about
him?' said the other. 'Died this after-,
noon."' New York Sun.
Perhaps tbe most delightfully smart
book of travels ever written was "Eoethen.
There is such a subtlety and alacrity in the
accent of egotism which runs through it,
that it is impossible to be disgusted with
it. But then that accent is unmistakable,
though all the more attractive, for not
being too glaring, too prominent. Another
extremely smart and brilliantly smart
book was Mr. Mallock's own "New Re
public," but uo one would ever have
thought of attributing to that book any
high fastidiousness of tate or modesty of
temper. The characteristic accent of the
book is exalted self confidence an ela
tion or satirical penetration. In a still
more emphatic sense. Gibbon's writing is
fell smart, though of course it is much
more than smart. London Spectator.
A Clever Remark.
A clever bon mot has recently been cred
ited to Mr. W S. Gilbert. At a literary
gathering the conversation turned upon
the income of bishops and their benevoleir.
work. "Ah," said Mr. Gilbert, "it is easy
enough for bishops to be good on salaries
of 5,000 a year, but we have to be good
for nothing, and," looking round with a
merry twinkle in his eye, "some of us are,"
A Reporter and Burglar.
Richard Harding Davis, whose interest
in life must have diminished considerably
since he took to writing fiction and gave
np good, noble reporting, thought that he
would like to capture a lot of Philadelphia
burglars. Mr. Davis was then reporting
for a Philadelphia paper. He disguised
himself as a burglar, and lived with the
gang for two or three weeks. All were ar
rested and some of them are still in jail. A
great actor was evidently lost to the world
in Kichard Harding Davis. He has few of
the burglar's instincts, and doesn't look
like a burglar, but he played the part so
well that when one of the swindlers whom
he had met in the course of his criu.inal
experience called at his father's bouse and
beheld Davis arrayed in fine linen he
gazed at Davis in admiration, and whis
pered his earnest congratulations, think
ing that Davis had introduced himself into
the house as a butler with an eye to future
The man's idea in calling was to swindle
the servants of the house in some way.
Davis' acquaintance with the crook of
course made the undertaking a failure.
Davis gained the confidence of the bur
glars by represent it: g himself as a burglar
from New York who wanted to kepp quiet
and out of Byrnes' way for a little while. -Xcw

Headd renting Among the Roman.
The ancient Romans were most simple
in their attire, and so continued for a long
period, but after a time fashion came to
reij,-n supreme among thrni, just as it does
wit h us today.
In the early Koman days the women, fol
lowing eastern traditions, were seldom
seen alirad. and when they did go out
wore their fares veiled, but as richness
and luxury increased the household labors
were delegated to slaves, and dress and
show became the chief object of ambition.
The simplicity of their home life and the
number of bakers and cook shops enabled
even the poorer classes to spt-nd much of
their time in the streets, market places
and at the public games.
It is noticeable that this day the poorest
Roman woman, no matter how coarse her
garments, will invariably have her hair
neat, plaited and elaborately coiled and
fastened with showy beaded pins which
care of her bountiful tresses she derives di
rectly from her ancestress of ancient times,
for the ancients spent more time in the
elaborate dressing of the hair than in any
other adornment. Spare Moments.
