that the writer saw Miss Fanny Cros

lie must bo sadly deficient in humor
who does not find himself amused hy a
sign like the following seen In the win

A prolific sourco of amusement to
manuscript rendors ls tho surprising
way lu which aspirants for literary
honor and glory often "put things."
We find one young woman saying of
ber heroine: "The countoss fell back in
a deadly swoon. When she revived her
spirit had fled."
Another young writer places her her
oine in a very perilous situation and
then says of her, "Her Hps quivered;
hor cheeks grew pale; her breath cam?
In short pants."
A third writer gives tlds amusing
description of tho appearance of som?
ono she referred to as. "the bell of
the ball:" "Bbc was clad In some soft,
clinging, fleecy, vapory stuff of purest
white that gave the appearance of a
blt of detached cloud floating in th?

A charming blt of purely unconscious

the mouth of the great central shaft
hundreds of feet deep was a placard

''Pleats do not tumbi? down th?

thc music of church bells drifting up

we plunged Into the midst of a hugo

to open and swallow us Into a pit of

heart of the wildest thunderstorm I

mistakable sound of water not far

faster. Lund was below us. The prob

landed in a treetop with a jar that fix
