Chauncey M. Depew
Recently said that -one of his favor
ite was of spending an evening was
to hunt up every imaginable phase
of some question in the arguing of
which he had been worsted on his
way up town.
"And when 1 know what the En
cyclopedia Britanieh has to say about
that question.' he continues, "I feel
capable of wiping up the floor
with that man." It is a counterpart
of Mr. Depew's faithful library
friend that the Kock Islanp Augls
offers to all its readers on terms so
low as to be almost humorous.
One cigar a day less is nothing in
the way of self-denial, yet for the
price of that indulgence this com
plete library can be brought into the
family, so that every member can, in
the words of Charles Dudley Warner,
Drop a dime in the slot and take
out a complete education."
Mr. Depew further said that when
a mere boy he 'made it a rule to lay
aside one-fourth of his earnings, and
that he has ever since throughout his
life observed this rule. In fact the
idea of early training in this direc
tion, of economy for the sake of edu
cation is now being agitated by our
leading teachers every where, because
of the fact that a boy's or girl's fu
ture depends very largely on how

John R. Elder, who recently returned
from a trip to New Orleans, while speaking
of General Benjamin J- Br.t U-r the other
day told the following s-iory: "Butler is
still heartily hated thcr-4, but the hatred is
not universal. I have even heard some na

there are a number of local anecdotes con
cerning him which have not leen in print

out of his way to do a gracious act. Among
those who had rea.-on to change their views
of Butler was a wealthy ereole named Mas

to the ears of Butler. The vessel was not
permitted to sail, and Maspcreau was sent
for. He entered the presence of Butler in
fear and trembling. Butler in a stern
voice asked why he was sending his plate
away, and Maspcreau told him for safety
that he uiun t think it secure in New Or
"'You take that silver to the custom
house,' said Butler; 'it shall never be said

he did so, and the silver was taken care of

For the feeding of London a little more
than 323.OS0 tons of meat, poultry and gen
eral provisions were 'delivered during the
year from the public markets alone. This
total was some 15.000 tons more than in
any previous year. There was an increase
of over 19 per cent in the supplies of Amer
ican meats; 009,442 animals passed through
one cattle market of the metropolis and
141,130 through another, all going to sup
ply the citv with food. These figures of
