THE 'ORIGIN' OF "PLUM DUFF."

Thoro aro many traditions respect
ing tho origin of the name Mpluhi
duff," the groat holiday dish of Sail
or;.. % No feast oh shipboard ia con
sidered perfect without it: Accord
ing to tho story given in tho history
of tho British navy, an English brig
iii tho south Puciflo was caught in a
series ot' awful hurricanes. All on
board were anxious to reach a port
in Wilie for Christinas, but tho holi
day found them still off tho'Naviga
tor islands. Worst of all, they liad
Shipped a Bea that carried away tho
hencoop containing a fow chickens.
When Cio coote saw tho Christmas
dinner floating in the leo scuppers
and in danger of going ovorboard,
lie made a gallant charge down tho
slippery, sloping dock to recover it,
but at that moment a great wavo
rose high over tho bulwarks, broke
with resistless fury on tho very spot
where lie stood, and when it subsided
cook and chickens had both disap
This unfortunate accident loft tho
crow not only without a Christmas
dinner, but without any one to pre
paro nu ordinary meal. Tho sailors
were heartily sick of "hardtack" and
reine ; bored with longing the fa
mous plum pudding ot' merry Eng
- land. They determined that somo
how they must, havo a Christmas
pudding and drew lota as to who
should be the cook.
The choice fell on the boatswain's
mate, a brawny son of tho Emorald
Isle, in the galley lie found ait old
cookbook. This ho solemnly pored
over in setirch bli something promis
ing, but for lack of skill or materials
found nothing ho dared venture
upon. At last he settled upon a rec
ipe which bogan, "Make a stiff
dough. " When ho readied tho word
dotigh, lie said to himself, "If
r o e. ;; h spells ruff, d-o-u-g-h spells
tte ho made tho pudding, putting
irv some imo Malaga raisins, and
served it out with a generous quanti
ty of rich sauce The sailors hailed
it willi delight and appreciation.
^YVhafc d'ye .crill it?" they asked.
"Plum .Int;'," said tho proud cook.
And plum duff it has remained from
that day to ?Iii-...- .Manchester Times.

"It is said," remarked Henry Gk
Hoxton, "that every man, woman
inri.child In tho country uses on an
average five matches a day, and un
der these conditions it is perhaps not
surprising that such a very poor
grade of matches is turned out. Tho
matches lu common us? ,iii the United
.States today '-n P very similar tb those
which ?ire discarded tu most Euro
pean countries, oxcopt in the poorest
hol gi ihorhoods, IO or la years ago,
and it is strange thut-somoof the bet
ter grades which haye superseded
them havo not acquired any foothold
ju this country.
"Wax matches, which uro consid
ered aristocratie In Europe, are not
nmeh liked here, but a good trial has
never been given some of tho I est
gradoof safety matches Sold every day
by tho thousands in European coun
tries. Tho two kinds generally on salo
hore are either sb loaded with sulphur
as to be unpleasant or so explosive in
character as to bo almost dangerous,
and both grades aro manufactured
with but very little regard to finish
and appearance, whereas in Franco
part icularly they have matches of all
kinds neatly finished and quito pleas
ant to uso. As a smoker I cortainly
think tho European idea tho bettor."

A ThouKhlful Widow.
On ii recent Saturday o vening two
women mot in a Heston market and
after exchanging tho usual friendly
greet ings commenced to console each*
oilier for tho deaths of their respect
Ono of tho women was greatly af
f ec ted as she related tho virtues of
her departed spouse. Bursting into
tears, she exclaimed:
"Oil, but my Felix was a good
The other replied, "My husband
was good to nie, and my loss was tis
great as yours."
- "I know all that," returned tho
first, "but my Felix hnd false teeth."
.'Well, what has that to do with
"J Juive bis teeth at home, and I
don't know what to do with them."
"Why didn't you lia ve them buried
with him ri
The sorrowing widow, again burst
ing into tears, cried, "I would, but I
was afraid they might choke him."
