CHINAMAN AT A TELEPHONI
Celestial Gots the Worth of His Mon
ey Every Time.
"A Chinaman at the telephone is
funny thing," remarked a long distanc
telephone operator in the Denver New
a few days ago. "You see, it is impoi
sibie to tell whether one person or hal
a~'osen are talking, and we often be
come mixed up, in listening to their
When one is speaking, it seems as i
half a domen are talking. and we ofte
imagine the wires are out of order. T
mate matters worse the Chinese de
light in talking as fast as possible, an(
we. never know whether the Chinamai
at this end the wire is talking or I
it is thene at the other end. After th
conversation Is ended the Chink walk
out of the booth With a self satisde
smile an his face and pays for a tire
minutes' talk. We have lately discoi
ered that he zs:ariably says as mic]
during that time as could have bee
said by a white man in fifteen mir
- To be the toepo e company I
not really "out" anything by the tran
action, as it is paid by the minute; bui
nevertteless, in the case of Chinames
the company would be the gainer b;
eharging for volume instead of time. !
Chinaman always begins his talk i
pidgin English. He says: "Hello. I
this Sam Lng I bettee ypoudon Iol
-yi hi ki yi he yay bo benno ne," an
so on, an"l it sounds on the wires as t
seveal persons were at work.
A story of the Irish Liberator and
el O'Conefn was once addre
bng an enormous meeting in Kingi
town, and the crowd was so large tha
fear was felt for the safety of th
building. As he was about to speak
getemdascended.the platform an
said, trembling with fear: "Liberato
the Boer js giving way! The beams ar
crdcking, and we shall all fall throng
in a few minutes." It Is not given I
-m,y men to live through such me
nent as O'Connell lived through as b

"pre -such Magnilcent courage in th
face 'of kreat peril. Warning the ma
to espqopet, the liberator said, "In
E itom too saU to contain the nun
ber who desie to come in, so we mu
theefare leave it and hold the meetin

hat was still packed. and then O'Can

The Card Table In Crimson Gulech
"Do you think it Is polite," said the
foolish stranger in Crimson Gulch, "for
a man to sit in his shirt sleeves and
play cards all day?"
"Yes, sir," answered Three Finger

good to remind you that the fewer

smEST OF KING EDWARD. 1
Tracing His Lineage Back to David, the
[Lutheran Chronicle.] I
By direct descent the king is con
nected with fifteen of the thirty five
monarch who have preceded him on
the British throne since the conquest.
- His descent from William the Con- I
queror, through the Georges, James
I, Henry VII, the first four Edwards,
Henry III, John, Henry II and Hen
ry I is clear and distinct. And, go
ing fnrther back, Edward VII has if
two clear descents from the Saxon e
kings of England. Through St. c
i Margaret of Scotland and Matilda, t
wife of the Conquerer, his maj.sty i
can trace his ancestry to Alfred the c
s Great and to Egbert, the first king f
- of all England. Through at least 1
, three lines the king can show de

scent from the Roman emperors-- 1
a first from Basil, the Macedonian em- <
I peror of Constantinople It is also iI
t claimed that Egbert was descended c
9 from Helena, the mother of Con- i
e stantine the Great, while also the e
e king's line from Mary Queen of +
Sotts is perfectly clear, and her an 1
cos(etry went back to imperial Rome.1
Nor is it easy to deny ti e claimri
Swhich makes King' Edwart a del'
soendant of David. As a Guelph '
the king traces descent from Roger
id'Este, the Saracen hero, and he in t
turn was descended from Saladin, I
the Nazarene, who was of the He. 1
ibrew royal house. The researches
of 31. Oppert~ have proved that

To say that this splendid work of
