Dii.hr That From Their Pecnliarly Sub
tle and Lonely Character Demtnd At
tention, Reverence and Silence An Epi
cure Serious Affliction.
For my thorough appreciation of a
lan?e and gool dinner I am, I believe,
indebted to my father. He was a great
diner, and it i well known that the fin
est qualities of the English race are her
editary. My f ither suffered from gout,
and the doctors who are a mass of prej
ndicrs, tell me that I also have got it.
However, I a:n thankful to saythatl
know my cto constitution. What is
really the master with me is a sort of
cold accompanied hy inflammation in
one toe. It i rises, 1 should say, from
overwork. Old port is good for it.
A fine appreciation of dinner should
be accompan ed by a large income.
When my futher died of apoplexy
(brought on by a quarrel with his cook,
who was a fair instance of talent as dis
tinct from g. nius), 1 snca-eded to his
position in the firm, and to an income
which even ir the city is considered to
be fairly large . I love largeness. I love
large incomes, large houses, large appe
tites, large Wi.istcoats. large dinners. I
can never le t x thankful that I can well
afford large d nners. It was alwavs my
ambition to 1, like my father, a'great
diner, and it would tie but false humility
to say that I shall die without having
earned the reputation.
I distinguish ln'tweei the diner and
the diner out. I do not want to lie un
charitable, hr.t I have no high opinion of
the diner out lie does not, as a rule
take the (iinn.T itself quite seriously. He
is liable M show an interet in the
women whom he takes in or in the con
versation. Now. life is too short for
that division of interests; wo only have
time to do one thing well. Let dinner
be that one tiling. I say, dine merely
dine. That is enough. Do that well,
and you have the best delight that this
world can g re you. As for conversa
tion, I despi.-o ir.

ly subtle and lovely character demanded
the eater's attention, reverence and si

a story. It caused noisy laughter. It,

But I am not unduly devoted to wine.
Indeed I bc metimes wonder whether I
am more fo:id of that or of the solid part
of the dinner. Both are good, lioth
bring out all that is best in a man. The
feeling of gratitude, for instance, is com
mendable. It is impossible to think
much about the commonest viands as
paragus, the simple oyster, or even a cut
from a perf ?ct saddle of mutton with
out feeling grateful. Then, too, dinner

The decadence (if simple honesty is

mind at the moment of writing a case in
point of peculiar hardship. An honored
gentleman, a helpless cripple, conceived
a business plan which promised success
ful results. The plan was submitted to
a firm rated high in the mercantile
agencies and n still higher position in
public favor. It was eagerly accepted
und cordially indorsed at every point,
and all assistance promised to make it a
permanent success to the mutual advan
tage of all parties concerned. All corre
spondence was favorable, and the pro
jector launched his enterprise at a heavy
outlay of time and capital, only to be
abandoned at this moment by this hon
orable firm and denounced by them as
assuming their sanction and support,
which they deny in toto. This support
and indorsement being entirely by type

The tune of "Yankee Doodle" has had
seven or eight treatises written upon it
in the last years, ascribing it to vari
ous dates and origins, even back to The
Netherlands aud the days of Cromwell
and the Charleses. Dr. George Grove of
London, author of the "Dictionary of
Music and Musicians." has investigated
thoroughly the various musical libraries
and the British museum in England,
finding no traces of it whatever, thus ex
ploding all the mystical, traditional and
apochryphal accounts thereof.
But "Y an nee Doodle had an origin
and has a history. It was written by
Dr. Richard Schuchburg, whose com
mission dates 1737, in the French and
Indian war of 1755 under General Jef
frey Amherst and was intended as a
"take off" on the "rag, tag and bobtail"
recruits of the colonies that came into
the army. It "took" so well, however,
that the Americans have ever adopted it
and would not part with it for anything.
The first words,
Father and I went down to camp,
were in the Boston Journal in 1768, and
the first record of the tune is in Arnold's
"Two to One," 1780, so that "Yankee

surgeon, is really American. Boston

INGENIOUS MAN WHO IS USUALLY
A Story That Show What a Terrible Af- ,
Miction the TMRcase of Unprofitable In-
gonuity May He Two Evenings In the
House of an Inventor.
Had it nc been that my family went
out of town a -iort time ago and left me
homeless and despondent, I would, never
have been able to write this story. As it
was I was won over by the entreaties of a
friend and went to live with him and his
little family for awhile.
It pleases me to meet geniuses. I like
to touch shoulders with men of ideas,
and that is just what this friend of mine
might be labeled a man of ideas. I did
not know it before I went to his house,
but then I discovered he is an inventor.
What he invents is immaterial; suf
fice it to say he invents in the full sense
of the word. If he works out an idea,
and when the model is perfected it doesn't
do what he thought it would, he makes
it do something else.
It's a double back action style of in
venting that is destined to fill long felt
wants or leave an aching void. The in
ventor is not to blame for either of these
happenings, his business being exclu
sively to invent.
Wo were sitting in his dining room the
first evening I was at his house. The
servant had just cleared the dinner table,
and my friend's wife was looking after
the youngsters and keeping their nurse
out of mischief.
George was looking intently at one of
the gas tips, and his brain machinery was
grinding exceeding fine material, I could
"Well, what is it?" I asked, looking up
and around for a stray June bug or some
other bird of plumage.
"I'm just thinking," George said rather
dreamily. "I can improve on that gas
tip. I'll Co it. I've got it sure." Then
he began drawing things on a piece of
paper that looked like deformed church
steeples. He said they were gas tips.
For a day or two George ate very lit
tle. 1 afterward learned this is com
mon with inventors, as they are able to
go for weeks at a time without touching
a morsel. Their brains stop working
when tlu-ir ownt r t ais. There's no mon
ey in eating -.cept for the dealers in
When George came back to earth and
food, he had a model in his pocket. It
was the taugible outcome of his think
ing. "Isn't that splendid:-'' lie said,, with
ecstasy, holding it up before me. His
black eyes glistened.
"Yes. it's very pretty," I replied. "Will
"Yon bet it'll work. The user will
get a large and steady flame, with no
waste of gas and with one-third the usual
pressure. I'll show you."
George got up and adjusted it to the
chandelier. He got out matches and
then turned out the remaining gas jet.
Fully 34 matches were struck while we
sat in the dark. I held my breath be
cause my hold on solemnity befitting the
occasion was fast loosing.
He said many things which I could
not lie led to repeat. The sanctity of a
private home should not be invaded. It
was his right to say things, as lit paid
The thing did not work. I could see
that, even though it was dark. He re
lighted the gas and sat down. You can
never tell what an inventor is going to
do, so I said nothing. Oh. I believe I
did ask him if there was an opening in
the end for the gas t ooze through. I'm
not sure, though, but I know George
He finally secured a couple of feet of
small rubber hose that he had used in
another experiment and fastened the gas
tip on one end. He thought perhaps
there was an obstruction that water
would clear away. The other end of the
hose he attached to a faucet.
I stood by like any well behaved in
vited piest. George turned the water,
and it shot through in first rate shape.
The fact was the gas tip was a splendid
sprinkler. Even George's wife acknowl
edged that, and she gave up acknowledg
ing anything but his inventive failures
"By gracious!'' George exclaimed,
"isn't that a dandy sprinkler? I'll get
that patented." Then he laid it down.
It was the next evening George's wife
said that her exjw-nsive music box was
out of order and would not play. The
valuable instrument was put on the ta
ble, and George jieered iuto it for about
"Xo wonder: I see what's the matter,"
George remarked as he left the room.
He returned with four or five imple
ments that for all I know belonged to a
He unfastened a couple of screws and
then yes, and then! The case was full
of snarled up springs, things that looked
like comb teeth and various odds and
ends that one would never suspect hav
ing been within 10 miles of the house a
minute before. Tears ran down the
cheeks of George's wife and dropped in
on the cylinders.
"What are you trying to do spoil and
rust the works?' George asked. Then he
dickered and dickered until he had
about a bushel of pieces of machinery
strewn about. George's wife retired,
and I fell asleep on a lounge. My host
worked until 6 o'clock in the morning
and then gave it np.
I left the next day. It was impossible
for me to remain longer in the house
with George's inventive brain. It fairly
crowded me out. The music box is now
in Geneva being fixed, the gas tip Eprin
kler keeps papers from flying about, and
George is working on something that
can be used as a self adjusting car coup
ler or a 6eltzer water siphon. New York

Dr. G. C. Osgood,
Castoria is the best remedy for children of

far distant when mothers will consider the real
interest of their children, and use Castoria in
stead of the various quack nostrums vt hich are
destroying their loved ones, by forcing opium,
morphine, soothing syrup and other hurtful
agents down their throats, thereby sending
them to premature graves."

' Our physiciars in the children's depart
ment have spoken highly of their experi
ence in their outside practice with Castoria,
and although we only have amenr ear
medical supplies what is known as regular
products, yet we are free to confess that tha
merits of Castoria has won us to look with
favor upon it."
