Where tilings Are Made.
A clergyman in the neighborhood of
Nottingham was complimenting a tailor
in bis parish on repairs which he had done
for him. In the course of conversation he,
however, incautiously observed: "When I
want a good coat I go to London; they
make them there." Before leaving the
shop he inquired, "By the bye, do you at
tend my church?"
"No," was tte reply. "When I want to
hear a good sermon I go to London; they
make them there." London Tit-Bits,
Origin of the Word "Money."
In tracing out the origin or derivation of
the word "money," you find it is from the
Roman word "Moneta," because the first
regular coins of tbe Romans were "struck"
in the temple of Juno Moneta. The word
"coin" Is, no doubt, from the Latin
"cuneus," meaning a die or stamp. Many
coins are so called from their original
weight, as the English "pound," the
French "livre," and the Italian "lira."

Thort Yachting Caps.
A story is told of a prominent yachtsman
who is conspicuous for never wearing a
yachting cap when every man, woman and
child sported one. When asked why he
did not wear it, he replied, "Because I own
a yacht." Exchange.

Long engagements are galling, like any
other chain. There may be circumstances
which justify them, but they are excep
tional circumstances, and we are only deal
ing with things as they generally exist.
The woman almost always is the chief
sufferer. H r wrong is immeasurably
greater. She struggles along the weary
years of waiting in a false position, and by
and by her I loom fades and her temper
sours, and th n Tom sees somebody younger
and fresher and more attractive, and he is
weary of M.iry, and the engagement is
broken and he marries his new love, and
Alary either marries out or pique some one

An Kttsy Cure for Hay Fever.
At last, after searching for years, I have
discovered ti e only genuine and effective
cure for hay fever. All the quinine pills
in the world will not give a tenth of th
relief to the, -sufferer that will a singletrial
of my great and only remedy, ami I giv

than a wash made of witch hazel and co

when the dreadful asthma comes on. It
will stop the wheezing in no time, aud
then hay fe- er will have lost all its ter
rors. Cor. t. Louis U lobe-Democrat.
A Live Tailor's Goose.
A tailor s ;:ose is not usually an amus
ing object, but its appearance under the
arm of a German tailor in Chamlers street
the other day caused some laughter. The
peculiarity f this tailor's goose was that
it was alive, and as it stretrhed its neck
lazily fro'n under the tailor's right arm
its beak pointed toward a half dozen pairs
of newly mule trousers which hung over
the tailor's eft arm. The combination was

A loaf of bread is a favorite talisman for
locating a crowned body in most European

of itself, sometimes it needs the aid of
some other substauce. Thus in England
the loaf is usually weighted with quick

An Odd Dish.
Mix boiled bog's lard and milk with
thick gruel. Siir it well together with
fresh cheese, yolks of eggs and brains.
Wrap it in a fragrant fig leaf and boil in
the gravy of a chicken or a kid. When
taken out, remove the leaf and souse it in
a potfnl of boiline honey. The name of
this comestible is derived from the fig leaf,
but the mixture consists of equal parts of
each, but rather more eggs, because this
gives it consistency. This appears to have
been a popular dish among the Greeks. To
us it seems about as nice as an oyster eaten
with brown sugar.
Aristophanes mentions a thirnm of salt
fish and a thirum of fat. In the "Frogs"
there is a dismal joke in the form of a rea
sonable objection made to leaping from a
high tower, "I would lose two fig leaves of
brain." The word occurs no less than
twelve times in the fragments of the comic
poets. Fraser's Magazine.
Private Hotels In London.
What are called private hotels abound
in London. The first question at some of
them is, "Are you recommended?" That
means, "Have you been sent here from
some regular hotel which has all of its
rooms occupied?" But you are not re
quested tofchow any written recommenda
tion. Yonr word is quite sufficient. These
private hotels are really boarding houses
or lodging houses, and the guest is ex
rected to take bis breakfast in the house,
bnt no other meal.
In one of the private hotels near the
Strand the following notice appears upon
the walls of t he rooms; "Notice Visitors
are respectfully requested to give at least
twelve hours notice previous to their de
parture, tr one night will be charged."
