THE RI6E OF Tifio CHESTNUT
It is ii matter of reproach to our so
cial scientists that thu Imbits and cus
toms pf tho joke have received so littlo
attention, it is nu error of tho vulgar
to BlippO30 that :i juke la n literary iuo
toor that Dashes across the intellectual
sky for a moment and then disappears
forever. Even trained observers have
been deceived into expressing much
tho samo opinion; and a colobratod
scientist, whoso services to mankind
justify us in concealing his nanto in
connection with thc charge, was hoard
.to declare that a joke v.-.s "au instance
of intellectual aberration unworthy of
serious attention." Nothing could bo
further from tho facts. Loaving asido
any dipoussion of tho first causo ?of tho
joko, which would involvo us in tho
obscurities of metaphysical discussion,
wo may BtatO boldly that tho joko has
well-delincd habits and peculiarities,
and a study of its history and develop
ment is well worthy the attention of
the foremost minds in science
It is evident to any obscrvor thal tho
joko may ho accurately divided into
races and nationalities. No ono who
had paid tiio slightost attention to tho
subject could possibly mistako a Gor
man joko fur a French joke, or a
Flench jukw for a British joke. In fact,
they are as plainly marked nfl' from
each other as any two breeds of dogs,
ami each undoubtedly has its different
habits. An adequate discussion of tho
HUbjoctcan nut oven be outlined in this
column. Nevertheless as a sundi con
tribution lo au important subject, wo
offer the following account of a singlo
member of tho large and interesting
family known ?is tlc- American joke:
lt is eight months or moro since tho
chostnut joke first saw tho light. Its
birth is involved in obscurity, in spito
ol earnest efforts to trace its nncestrv.
In the early days of its existence it
gaYO no aigri <>i coining greatness. Wo
know the story of the school al Brion
nc, where Bourionno took thc prizes
over Napoleon; Bourionno is now re
membered not us the "prizo boy,"
but as Nopoloou's sccrotary. In a 1 i ko
manner Un; tin-pan joke or the nigger
baby juke of even dale, willi tho chost
nut Seemed surer of fame. At tho time
the chestnut appeared Ibo paiut-thc
lown-red joke was at tho Uolgbt of its
lanie. Its monthly appearance in Jan
uary was twenty-six thousand seven
hundred and forty-six, willoh is sur
passed only by its unprecedented No
vember record ul lliirly-cigltt thousand
yine hundred, ?lue lo Hie looal disturb
ing cause nf a Democratic victory that
month al tho polls. For thu same
month the chestnut appeared in public
but a bcguarly ono hundred and eleven
times. Ui'evious lo lhat dato it was so
insignificant as not to seem worthy of
record. Starting from this point, wo
soo tho gradual rise of tho chesnut and
the corresponding decline of paint-thc
towa-red. in February tho chestnut
appeared twelve hundred and forty
four times, and the paint-tho-lown-red
appeared twenty-live thousand niuo
hundred and fourteen times. This docs
not necessarily indicate any falling off
in the popularity of tho latter, for tho
cdfect of hard limes was most severely
felt lhat mouth, the total output of
jokes being six per cent under that of
January; bul th?: increase of the chest
nut joke under such unfavorable cir
cumstances is truly signilioant. Tho
following mouth palnt-thu-town-rod
nearly held ils own, appearing twenty
live thousand seven hundred and nine
teen time-, but the chestnut increased
lo ihh'ty-two hundred. Tao following
month it increased by eleven hundred,
while tim paint-lhc-town-rod declined
by Denny tho saine ll nhl bot'. But in
the month of May the chestnut leaped
nt one astonishing nound lo fourluoa
thousand seven hundred and eighty ap
pearances. Ils only ono livid coming
down something less than tho samo
ligure.
lt is .scarcely neee-isary to go furthor
into deiai.s. The August returns givo
a tolai ol more than tweniy-nino thous
and uppqntalices tor incciieslnut,while
its rival is all but as extinct as Mr.
Crawford's "dado." Tho reports for
the lirst half of tho present month in
dicate that the total will fall littlo if
any belo v that of August, although
the ieturn-of-the-suiuincr-hoardor has
acted ns a disturbing oloinont. Wo
may ilSMlfdo however, from tho fore
going figured that tim ohos tn Ut has
re:.ched in full deveiopmout, and is
doomed to a speedy decline. It is dau
serous to generalizo nom but two or
three instances, but from tho obvious
similarity of I he caroora <>f tho success
fid American jok , ii ll almost cortain
that their existen :o is determinod by
llxcd nnd Imuiutablo laws. Wo havo
not tho Uguie* ot had to verify this
statcmont, but wo pronounce it in all
conlidenco.
We may suppose, therefore that tho
chestnut must follow tho path alroady
troddVn bv paint-tho-town-rod and its
prodeeossors, and. after seeing tho rise
of some successful rival that is ovon
now In tho obscure throng, will bocoino
extinct in about eight months, its riso
Las taken an equal longth of limo, lu
spito of a few woll-known oxcoptiona
whoro a joko has boen nblo to survivo
in a toothless, mumbling condition fof
two or throe yoars, wo may aafoly
state that tho iivorago lifo of the suc
cessful Aaiorican joke is sixtoon or, at
tho moat, eighteen months. Tho sub
. 5octda ono of much inlorost.and should
attract sonio young and onthusiastlo

Curl'tu* Coins.
"What is that curious-looking eop^
per piocoP" asked; h reporter ot aUcal
or in old coins.
' That is tho Rotuna Acs, a coin
which was in usc in Koine about 2,200
yours ago. It is un original; it could
not bc spurious, mid for tho reason
that though tho coiu itself. SO far a< its
outward bil apo is concerned, might b,j i
counterfeited, it would bu Imposable
to imitate tho red patilla, ' br "Abating,
upon it. You soo, this coin Iii? two
coatin/gs of colored matter-ono green
aild tho other rod. Well, tho green
can bc imitated by modern ingenuity,
but tho red Staff can not bo pul upon
counterfeit coins by any process tit
prosent known to the world.
"Where do you got those ancient
coins that woro in uso so many years
agoP Whcro are they found?"
"Well, you seo, pcoplo in thoso an
cient times did not have banks and
bank vaults to deposit their wealth in
for safc-keoping. As you Know, tho
Kornaus wore almost constan ?ly at
warfare With others, and thoso "who
had money would frequently hide il ill
tho earth or secure il in the walls of
their dwellings when they went to liiu
wars. Those who were killed loft,
quito oftOD, 1)0 trace of where I hoir
wealth was biddon, and so ii rom ai noil
to bu resurrected by some modern relie
hunter. A great many ancient coins
have been found also in river beds. 1
think that in many instances they were
put into rivers by people who wished
to havo their history remembered hy
tho coining ages. There havo been
coins found in ibo Thames near old
London bridge by which wo eau trace
many of tho Kornau emperors. Tho
fact that they huvu thus been found
in order scorns lo clearly indicate that
they were deposited on purpose by per
sons desirous of perpetuating tho
names of tho rulers. Tims, by thcau
coins of ancient Koine, man)' things
pertaining to that great empire, which
ruled as mistress of tho World are inado
known to us. Many things arc indeli
bly impressed upon the mind by glanc
ing at tiieso coins nuil afterward be
coming interested in thu subjuot. 1
do uot believe there cati be a belter
educator of the history of any cou ll I ry
than a collection of its coins. Ibu
symbolic devices and inscriptions upon
thom have a priceless V.tiuo in lixing
upon tho mimi tho great facts and un?
odis to which they refer. Not only
does this apply lo ancient coins; ii is
equally lino of modern coins. Here is
something that to the thinking man in
dicates agr?ai social and business rev
olution in the manner ami customs of
tho pcoplo who uso it, for hero you seo
a specitnou of thu largest coin ever
J; now n to bo ill uso miy where. "
Tho reporter was ?truck with aina/.e
mout when informed that .the inigo
squaro copper phittor-liko affair was it
coin. Proceeding, thu dealer ?aid:
"Yes, it is a Swedish pioeo and gen
erally weighs from (J to 7 pounds. This
ono woig is G} pound-;, lt is 1"^ inches
wide by OJ Inches long, and is a very
raro coin, lt was mudo during tho
roigu of Frederick, king of Swollen, in

As a poet it is easy to underrate Lord

overrate him. With him il was ail of

To such thc richest fountains of poeti

tho following story. Whetlu r Iruo or
not, there is nothing improbable about
it. A criminal was to bu hiing at niuo
o'clock, tho event to bo announced to
tho public by tho tiring of a gun. Soma
ono ut Houghton'* breakfast table re
marked that it was after nine and tho
gun had not boon tired; tho execution,
thorofore, must havo been postponed.
"Oh no," promptly replied his sister;
"tho mau luis surely been hung, or
brother would havo had him hore at
bruakfast." Whether from a spirit of
generous toleration, or charity, or lovo
of fair play, or sympathy for tho Weak?
or party, or a curious taste for tho
paradoxical, or nil thoso combined, his
muso scorned to havo been coiisocratod
to tho defenso ot people and conduct

Thc traveling public aro greatly in
debted to the Atlantic I'ta-t Linc for
the making of a new and most agreea
ble ronlo from the up-country to
Charleston. This lino extends Crom
Columbio to Suinter by the. Wilming
ton, Columbia & Antills tn Railroad,
thence to Lane's by tho Central, and
from Loues to Charleston by thc North
eastern. Thc Coast Linc, already con
trolling the W. C. ?' A. and tho N. E.
il. P., bad but to build the Central,
forty-one miles, long, to havo this now
route from Columbia to Charleston,
one hundred and thirty-seven miles
long. Thc work was finished a littlo
overa year ago, and the new linc has
steadily grown in popularity. The
first Improvement waa in tho shorten
ing of tllO tillie between thc capital and
tho metropolis --- w Pleb, ol cours..,
brought thc competing line to do a
well, till now thc trip ls made in threo
hours and twenty minutes. When il
was made, a few yeats ago, in livo
hours, conservative pimple thought
that progress in rapid transit had
reached a climax 1
To make such good limo requires a
first-rate road-bed, and first-class roll
ing-dock. TheSO tho Coast Linc has
provided, and tho comfort of the trav
eler is infinitely greater than in tho
good old days when twenty miles an
hour constituted the height of railroad
ambition,
Of course in making such speed,
there is no such waste ns "t\v my
minutes [or less] for Hiipper." There
is, thoretorc, a buffet car, furnished
with comfortable revolving chairs,
whereon the passenger may sit, :n at
the table of a first-class hotel, nod
enjoy bis ''snack" in peuce and at
leisure. Tho menu is simple, but
nicely pro pared and, nicely Served. It
I* nil that tho traveler wants tor sup
per or for breakfast. The prices charg
ed are very reasonable. The eon tras I
between a meal (?) at die average
railroad eating-house and the "binu-k"
on thc bullet ol the Coast line is very
suggestive of Mark Twain's "Five
minutes for dinner-America," and
"Thirty minutes for dinner--France."
Tho price of tickets is thc nnme on
all lines. .
