.Hie One? * General:' Rosecrans Once
- ^Offered, to a Friend,
One of^the stories told by old em?
ployees in^the treasury ' department at
Washington is of the time when Gen?
eral Rosecrans was register. The gen
- eral never smoked and'knew nothing
^bontcigars. He determined, however,
to h?ve a box of-good^cigars handy for
gfche benefit of friends who might drop
into the register's office. The general
accordingly purchased a bos of expen?
sive cigars, put them in a drawer and
forgot all about them for some time. .
Then, one day, when a^fdend was call^
ling, the%eneral remembered- the cigars"
-an<i brought them ?Out |

R?secr?ns,~ Timt .1 am told that these
are very fine."

'his-lacel He tried'to3?nceai Iiis feelr
Tings' and puffed m?nfully at the cigar j
: for'.^veral seconds: Then ^secrans,
noticing that he was growing pale, ask?
ed what was the trouble.
. ''General" said the visitor, "I don't
want to be ungrateful; but I'm afraid
ifs this cigar/'
v .^mppssib?er exclaimed Rosecrans.
"Why, when I bought them I was told
that they were the finest cigars on the
"WeH, general, you were deceived.
The: cigar tastes and smells exactly as
if tt. were made of camphor/*
"Camphor !** stammered Rosecrans,
looking chapfallen. "Why, I never
thought; but perhaps camphor does in?
juree cigar.* ; And, reaching into the
drawer,-he brought to view several gar?
ments ?lled with camphor balls. "Do
you suppose that can be the trouble?''*

A Lincty Imitation*
Marshal Gourko, 'the famous Russian
general, was a terrible autocrat On
one occasion an impersonator of cele?
brated men was performing at a thea?
ter in Odessa. One evening he received
a mysterious message, which read:
"Study General Gourko." In Russia it
ls better not to inquire into matters
that one does not understand, and so
the artist spent an hour in privately
impersonating the autocratic Russian.
Just as the evening performance was
about to commence an order of arrest
signed by Gourko was presented to the
impersonator, and without explanation
he was led through the streets to the
marshal's palace and into an apartment
where the terrible man was seated
"They tell me that you impersonate cel?
ebrated men," he roared. "Imperson?
Giving a hasty look at Gourko, the
performer turned to the mirror to,
"make up?** It was an anxious time,
for if the -marshal should take excep?
tion to the representation he bad un?
limited power to inflict punishment.
The impersonator dragged himself to?
gether and turned to the marshal a copy
if his own face and overbearing man?

ter, and the dangerous moment was
When the World Will Be :Fu|l.
If we apply to the future growth of
the world's population the rate of In?

2250.. 52,073 or.1,001
As there are 52,000,000 square miles
of land on the earth, and as we are to
consider 1.000 persons to each square
mile as the equivalent of the world's
being full, it follows that we want a
world population of 52,000,000,000 of
persons to fulfill this condition.
A glance at the above statement of
growth in the world's population shows
that the necessary growth from 1,600.

In England, where men hare more

some queer methods of playing even;

heard a "noise in his dining room. Slip?

The Golfer's Pun.
At a recent auction sale one of the
paintings had for a subject a gayly at?
tired golf girl making a long drive. The
bidding on this opened very brisk-$60,
$65, $70 and finally $72.
"Seventy-two, two, two, two!" cried
"Fore!" shouted some one in the
With the exception of the golfer in
I the front row, who immediately "duck?

"Four," repeated the auctioneer. "Do

He did not hear "five," and a cold
sweat broke out,on the brow of the
last bidder as now, for the first time^

picture occurred to him.,... Seventy-four _
dollars for making a pun! He made a
solemn vow then and there that he
would never attempt another as with a

HI? Tnlncfcy Day.
Even the least superstitious are often
struck by the misfortunes which at
! tend some persons on certain dates. A
large finn in the city, has in its employ
a living instance of the fact On June
12 an employee lost his left arm by
coming : in. contact with 'machinery.
The accident disabled him for his then
employment and he was given that of
a messenger. On another June-12'ha
was run over in the Strand while on
an errand-result a broken leg. The
next accident was a fall on the stairs
in the firm's buildings, again June 12;
the right arm broken this time. The
fourth mishap on another anniversary
broke three ribs. The firm took the
case into" consideration and issued an
order that in future the employee was
to take a holiday oh that date, an order
? with "which he bas now complied for
several years.-London Chronicle.
Why She Wanted to Know.
"Is this Hazel street?" asked a young
woman In one of the back seats of an
East Tenth street car who was parry?
ing a diminutive poodle dog under hei
"No, madam," said the conductor. "1
will tell you when we come to it"
! Later on she repeated the question,
and the conductor answered, with some
show of Impatience. Finally when
Hazel street was reached, he rang, and
the car came to a stop. "This is Hazel
street" said the conductor.
"Oh, 1 don't want tb get off at that
street 1 only wanted to know where
it was. I go to the end of the line."
Then as the car started again she
looked down at the pug and said in
tones of extreme affection, "There,
dearie, there's where your muddy
"What are you staring at Nellie?"
"Oh, please, ma'am, with your hair
like that and your diamonds you do

"No-at least no near relation. Bat

He Was Accommodated.
A conjuror was performing before a
rough and ready audience in ODe of the
prohibition states of America, accord?
ing to an English paper. "I am now
about to undertake a feat" said he, "tn
which I shall need the use of a pint
flask of whisky." There was a dead
silence. "Will some gentleman in the
audience favor me with a pint of whis?
ky?" There was no response, and the
conjuror began to look blank. "Sure?
ly," he continued, "in a southeastern
prohibition town I ought not to have to
ask a second time for such a thing. I
give my word I will return it intact
Is there no"
"Stranger." said a tall, gaunt man
as he rose slowly from a front seat
"wouldn't a quart flask do as well?"
"Why. certainly! I merely"
