Tho original of Sain Weiler was Sam
. yule, an English low comedian, who,
\ In the early part of tho last century, was
\ quite popular In the south of England.
> In tho yenr 1811, and for a few years
after, he made quite a reputation in the
musical farce culled "Tho Hoarding
House," written by Deusley. In this
he played the part of Simon Spatter
dash, a person who Indulged in odd and
whimsical sayings. "Como on, as the
old man said to the tight boot;" "I am
dow* on you, as the extinguisher said
to tie candle;" "Let every one take
- ""care of himself, as the donkey Bald
When dancing among the chickens,"
nre fair Illustrations of his witticisms
In the courso of that play, the resem
blance between them and boiuo of the
sayings of Sam Wellor being- very
marked. In private life Yale was ft
wit, and many good things In bis own
time were credited to him. A man of
excellent temper, he had no enemies,
and the good humor which pervuded
every saying, together with tho droll
ery of his manner, gave his witticisms
unusual value. His sayings were called
Sam Valerlsms, and on the appearance
Of Pickwick in 1830 tho character of
Weller was generally recogulzed as a
portraiture of Vale. The comedian died
In 1848 nt tho age of ffty-ono.

When the south sea bubble In Eng
land collapsed one of tho speculators
went to Smyrna to repair his fortune.
He was a friend of Alexander Pope
and sent him a box of tigs in which
had been placed a twig of a tree. Pope
planted the twig on his grounds on the
Bhore of the Thuines, not knowing of
what tree it was. It grew and was a
weeping willow. In 1775, when tho
tree was over fifty years old, one of
the young British officers who enmo to
Boston with the British army brought
a twig from the tree, which ho intend
ed to plant on his lands after the re
bellion bad been crushed, .lohn Parke
?ustls, son of Mrs. Washington, going
on errands to the British camp under
a flog of truce, became acquainted
With the owjier of the willow twig,
Which vj^fr??^ed In oiled silk, und ob

itched an anemone which somehow

one of the valves of an oyster shell.
Practically tho shell struck In its glat
?ard and gradually cut Its way down
through the soft tissues of the anem
one until It halved tho animal as by

two anemones through the division of
