SPOILED A GOOD STORY.
k Might nan fpnn at Very Fnnny Tara
Had He Not Been Interrupted.
The ways of tie professional man are
hard, and tbe comedian has anything but a
jovial time. I ni across a comedian the
other night, one who has the reputation of
being particularly funny, looking sad and
down in the mout'i ge nerally.
"Well, Joe," I exclaimed, "what's the
matter? Vou lool. as if your last aunt had
cut you off without a shilling or you'd lost
your engagement, or"
"Oh, nothing's tlie matter. I've only made
a blank fool of my?elf. I'll never tell another
story as long as I live I have found out at
last that I am not ling but a bore." '
I remembered fiat a few evenings before
a small party of r s were gathered in Joe's
room in an up town hotel listening for
hours to his anted tes, experiences and dia
lect stories, given in bis inimitable style,
and made Joe talk until almost morning.
I think none of us had uttered more than a
dozen words since he began.
"You couldn't poreibly be that," I de
murred. "Take my advio.-," said he. "Never tell
a story when you'ie asked to do so. That's
a sure sign that somebody has been crack
ing you up. You can't possibly be funny
"There's my manager. He went around
to these friends of bis saying: 'Boys, you
just ought to he. Joe C tell a story.
You never heard his eqtial. His stories
are screamingly f u uny. You'll be so tickled
to hear him once t tat you'd mortgage your
grandmother to 1 ear him again. Jingo,
but he's great!'
"Well, I went vith him tonight to see
these people. Yon see I couldn't refuse.
He's my manager. We hud hardly entered
the room when I e began: You see I've
brought Joe. Jot", tell them that story
about how the body wasn't found. It'll
tickle yourniidri ft"i ill youcan'tsitstraigbt.'
"Well, I hud to tell it, but you know
such a wet blanket would spoil any story.
Pretty soon, when I got to an interesting
point, Brown, who all the time had been
grinning in expectation, says, 'Why, Joe,
that isn't the way you told it lart night.
"I suid to him, 'Of course 1 never tell it
twiwe alike,' Pretty soon I Bet it a-going
again, and then comes another punch from
Brown. "That isn't the way it goes. Don't
you know, tbe tra Tip had just asked for
"Then I started rat again, madder than
a wet ben, but ke.it a stiff upper lip, and
when I got to the end and there wasn't so
much as a smile, f Brown had killed it
by cold douches, he remarked:
" 'Oh, you just ought to hear Dick
Weatherhv tell that story.' "
The funny man t hrust his hands into his
pockets with a despondent air, and a look,
half of melancholy, half of resentment,
chased the sickly smile off his rugged,
weather beaten countenance. New York
What Buddhism Aimed to Bo.
The Greeks were capable of much poetical
pessimism. They saw the vanity of things
as plainly as Gotama did, but they also saw
the pleasure of pit-claiming this vanity in
sonorous hexameters or musical elegiacs.

enjoy everything f irever would not have
entered into their very sound brains and
healthy nervous systems. Buddha knew
this, knew that mankind was light minded,
a child pursuing a bird. But in the slack
and demoralizing climate of India he found
countless disciples. Most of them, perhaps,
cling to the Brah imic survivals' in Bud-
I dhism, the gods, tl e fairy tales, more close
i ly than to the dor-fine of renunciation.
It is a hospitaoU religion and has many
mansions. But it did aim at doing away
with the sac-redness of caste, at proving all
men to he equally human, equally capable,
as f;ir as social distinct inns go, of moral
excellence. In toil- view, where Buddhism
most directly react - ngninst Hrahminism,
it has not Ix n a t accesi. Tbe caste sys
tem in all its I mi i in initiut.'ii.'-s has sur
vived the Buddhist doctrine. "Buddha for
the soul and the jj's for the world," an
old C'iiiKHlesc saying, still exists in that
popular superstition. Human nature can
not be boxed up in a system. liondon
