A good story on the imperturbability of
the average Englishman was given over
une 01 tue tables in the St. James hotel
cafe the other evening. The Englishman
jii question nan oeen asked aboard a yacht
at Kew Rochelle last summer. It was a
small boat, with a low deck, only a foot or
nuove tue water, and w ith a low rail
as well. When he came n.hnnr.1 hia y,t
took him aft to be introduced to the ladies
onuoard. '1 he Briton put on his best so
ciety manner, made a profound bow with
all the dignity and grace of a German
dancing master, and then stepped back,
still bowing, to make it more impressive.
His deliberation and backing were carried
a little too far. and he backed overboard.
He went splash into the water, coat tails
first. As he went he grabbed at the small
flag halyards; of course they broke. As he
could not swim a stroke his host lost no
time in reachitig over and pulling him up
by the hair.
As the Briton scrambled on deck, soaked
to me skin and dnppiug like an April skv,
be looked at the bits of broken twine still
ui his hand and said, in a rather conde
scending and critical tone:
"I say, old chap, what awfully rotten
rigging you have in this country. Why
don't you get the real hemp, now?"
Then it occurred to him that he was wet,
and so he accepted the offer of dry flannels
in the cabin below. Presently he came up
with a pair of white flannel trousers on, so
much too smail that they fitted him like
tights and his legs looked like sausages.
It was a positively unique spectacle.
On being remonstrated with he went be- j
low and put on a loose pair of brand new
trousers. Thty were his host's best pair.
The Brit on made himself perfectly at home
in them. He sat down on the dirtiest parts
of the boat and leaned against tarry things
until the trousers were past redemption.
That was his first and last invitation to
that yacht. Xew York Herald.
