BRIGNOU AT DINNER.
In a Fit of Anger He Tanked Off the Table
cloth end Smashed Everything;.
One night Brignoli invited several
friends to sup with him after a per
formance in Baltimore, and on reach
ing his apartments found the table set
end the waiters in readiness to begin
bringing in the dishes. He was ex
tremely particular about the appear
ance of his table, and always took a
critical view of the crockery, silver,
linen, etc., before inviting his friends
to sit down. On this occasion his
eagle eye discovered several small
holes in the tablecloth, and his anger
was all aflame in an instant.
Too full of wrath to speak, he
caught hold of the comer of the
cloth and gave one long, quick jerk,
clearing the table completely and
scattering knives, forks, spoons,
plates, etc., all over the room. The
astounded waiters ran to the proprie
tor with the tale, and when he ar
rived on the scene there was danger
in his eye.
Brignoli knew he was in serious
trouble, and forthwith brought into
play all his cunning to get out of it.
He pretended that the waiters had
treated him- in a most outrageous
manner; that the tablecloth was not
fit for a hog to eat off of ; that the
dinner was cold; that the wines
were warm in short, he made the
proprietor believe that everything
was just as bad as possible. Then
he began to mollify him by praising
How was it that every one he
knew in the -whole United States had
recommended it to him! How could
it be that good people thought so
well of it! Everybody had told him
that it was the only first class hotel
in Baltimore. And this and this
was the way a guest was treated!
Surely there was some mistake.
The landlord could not possibly know
that one of his guests had been so
imposed on I No first class house
would submit to it !
In short, the wily old fellow made
the landlord think him the most
abused man on earth, and they were
soon the best of friends. The land
lord himself attended to the setting
of the table. The best of everything
in the house was put on it, and an
excellent dianer was served at his
expense. Brignoli gave the waiters
$10 each for having hurt their feel
ings. New York Tribune.
A Joke of a Court F00L
The term fool is often misapplied.
Thus, Charles the Simple was no fool,
but a man of extraordinary simplicity
and strength of mind and feeling.
So Homer, when he called Telema
chus a fool or "silly," did not employ
the word as a term of reproach, but
The court fool, or jester, was for
merly an important person in the
households of kings and princes. His
influence over his master was consid
erable, and many clever sayings of
fools are still in existence.
Charles the Simple had a jester
named Jean, who one morning tried
his master's nerves by rushing into
his room with the exclamation : "Oh,
sire, such news I Four thousand men
have risen in the city 1"
"What!" cried the startled king.
""With what intention have they
"Well," replied the jester, "prob
ably with the intention of lying down
again at bedtime." Youth's Compan
ion. Red Hair and Freckles.
Science explains the phenomenon
of red hair thus: "It is caused by a su
perabundance of iron in the blood.
This it is that imparts the vigor, the
elasticity, the great vitality, the over
flowing, thoroughly healthy animal
life which runs riot through the
veins of the ruddv haired, and this
strong animal life is what renders
them more intense m all their emo
tions than their more languid fellow
creatures. The excess of iron is also
the cause of freckles on the peculiarly
clear, white skin which always ac
companies red hair. This skin is ab
normally sensitive to the action of
the sun's rays, which not only bring
out the little brown spots in abun
dance, but also burn like a mustard
plaster, producing a queer, creepy
sensation, as it the sKin was wrin

What Are We Coming To?
The following is printed "for true
in a London journal:
The house of a well known lady
novelist was the other day observed
to be shrouded in the gloom of drawn
curtains and lowered blinds. Sym
pathetic friends presently called to
inquire what family affliction had
taken place. They were admitted
into the darkened drawing room,
where, clad in deep mourning and
holding a clean pocket handkerchief
in her hand, the lady novelist sat,
weeping, upon the couch. A sympa
thetic and inquiring murmur irom
the visitors elicited a fresh burst of
tears as the lady sobbed forth: "Af
fliction! Yes, I should think so. My
hero is just dead!"
The Borrowed Book.
"The borrowed book." What a text
for a sermon, 6aid a clever author.
If books are borrowed, mar them not ;
neither turn down the leaves, and,
above all, be careful to return them
in as good a state of preservation as
when borrowed. To write on the
margins is unpardonable, vulgar, ill
