And we were wed forthwith. bv there's the long and short of it. Mark Twain and Sellers. How Clemens and Warner Came to Writ Their Alleged Novel. The Humorist's Idea of a Herlou Story With a. Moral. Mark Twain conceived the idea of The Gilded Age" when he was Buffer ing iroin a prolonged fit of the blues, lie proposed to write a storv with a mor al, and he told Charles Dudley Warner that he wanted that moral so plainly put that he who ran might read. It was hieh time for the American people to be awak ened. The American people were awak ened to the extent of $ 14,000, which Mark twain and Dudley Warner pocketed in nix months' time from the sale of the book. Here the equal divitdon of proflts -nded, however; for John T. Raymond nays that he has paid Mark Twain $150, 000 royalty on the play, while it is a se cret that Dudley Warner sadly tries to keep that Mark Twain paid him $1,000 for Lis half interest in any dramatiza tion. The discrepancy is said to have arisen tecause Warner regarded the book, when the last sheet was tossed on the floor still wet with ink, as the most suc scsHfulpiece of American humor, while Mark Twain gravely reminded Warner that any such view of it taken by the American people would ruin the influ ence for a letter state of public morals which it was intended by him to exert. Warner stuck to his opinion and Mark to his. Twain was surprised and griev--d to learn that the public so far agreed with Warner as to characterize it as an attempt at humor. The two men shook hands over it, un der the bust of Calvin in Mark Twain's den, and then Warner sailed for Europe to spend the money the book had brought him while Mark Twain remained be hind to negotiate with John T. Raymond. An intimate friend of Nrth, in an un guarded moment, revealed the secret of the way in which the book came to be written. This is said to have led to a temporary estrangement from Parson Joe Twitchell, upon whose shoulders Mark Twain foisted the "Punch with care burden, and afterward told about it in the Atlantic Monthly. An estrange ment from Parson Twitchell was wide reaching in its effects, for it resulted in Mark Twain's absenting himself from the family pew on Sundays, and stran gers staying in Hartford overSundav arc somewhat in the habit of seeking Twitch ell's church und quietly asking the sex ton to seat them as near Mark Twain's pew as possible. The story the intimate friend tells i's this: One- evening in the summer of 1874, Dudley Warner and his wife drop ped in upon Mark Twain, who had been Kloomily smoking clay pipes in his den nil the week. Even the cheery Joe Twitchell had been unable to shake him from his melancholy. "If you leok from your den window to the northeast," the parson would say, "you can see where Gen. Hawley lives, and his success ought to encourage you." "But that makes me think of politics, and they are a curse." "Well, look over across the street, and you can see where Jewell lives. You know he began life with his shirt sleeves rolled up and his arms to the ellow in a tan vat." "Now, don't ! He rem inds me of mails and letters, and they are an abomina tion." "Well, there is Mrs. Harriet Beecher Stswe's house next door. See what a name she made after discouragements." "But slavery is gone now." "Well, there'8 Dudly Warner's 'Sum mer in a Garden over there. You can almost see the puslev from here," "That settles it- I'll get Warner here to-night and bother him about pualey." bo Warner came around, ana during the evening spoke of a recent American novel. "It's atrocious what bosh is written for American novels now," Warner said. "I believe I could write a better novel myself." "You ! You writ a novel !" said Mrs. Warner, und she laughed. "Why, you can't write anything except about pusley in your garden." "Warner is quite right," Mark Twain drawled out. "I have for a long time felt that I oould writ a better atory than any American novelist" Then it was his wife's turn, and when he controlled her merriment, site said: "You write a story! Why, all that you can do is to write about Jumping "Let'a write a story, Warner, and show these women what we can do." Mark Twain's blues had departed, and he pulled Warner tip stairs to his den, lighted a clay pipe, and talked it over as rapidly aa he can talk about sixty words to the minute, about half the or dinary rate. "Don't let's tell Twitchell until it's done," Mark Twain suggested, "because we want to surprise him, you know." The story was to be highly dramatic, strictly moral, and to have a point. Warner suggested that too many novels uau duwu), anu Aiarg lwain earn- it woulau't do to have a pointless novel, and he waa disposed to reprove Warner when the author of the "(Summer in a Garden" suggested that Deonle would take Mark's most serious attempt as de sign eu to oe tunny. "mat's just it, Warner. I want to write something so serious that it can't dc mistaken for tun." It being decided that the story should teach a lesson, the two authors found themselves brought up short in trying to decide what the lesson waa to be, and they prepared to make a night of it, for getting all about the wives below. War ner had a dim idea about the evils of peculation, while Mark Twain thought something on the errors of religious teaching of the present day would do, and he got warm about it At length Warner said that he once knew a man who would make a first rate character for a novel ; and then he told Mark Twain about Col. Edchol Sel lers, who had always been Just on the point of making his millions. . "That's the thing," said Mark Twain, "name and all." Warner protested against the name, became he was afraid they might hear from CoL Sellers, but Mark Twain was stubborn and said that fie character and name were just the Foundation for a novel snowing the dangerou effect of ..';. is.-. X ; .. the tendency to speculate. " So they" de cided to build a novel unpon Col. Eschol Sellers. Each was to write a certain amount every day, meet in Mark Twain's den at night and fit the ends together, lay out the work for next day, and talk it over. Mark Twain was enthusiastic. He insisted that Col. Sellers would be recognized as a sad type of the prevail ing evil, and that people would be bene fited by the warning. Warner had some doubt about the people looking at Col Echol Sellers as portrayed in "The Gilded Age" in Just thafway. The manuscript was finished in just a month from the day on which it had been begun, and Mark Twain who has a horror of writing the headings of chap ters, thought that it would be desirable to get Dr. J. Hammond Trumbull, the linguist, sometimes described as the on ly man who can read Elliott's Indian Bible in the original, to write the chap ter headings in some unforgotten lan guage with unknown alphabets. This Dr. Trumbull gladly did, and it explains those queer headings which made more talk than Col. Sellers did when the book appeared. Mark Twain has since said that he was glad one book had been pub lished which contained something that even the critics had to admit they did not understand. "The Gilded Age" sold rapidly at first, and Mark Twain assured Warner that the people were accepting Col. Sellers, as he had known all along they would, in all seriousness. But the sale sudden ly stopped. Mark could not understand it, until Parson Twitchell told him that the trouble was that the book was too serious. The public would accept noth ing from him that was not funny, and they had been deceived in this book. They bought it for fun, and found it a sad, solemn story, with a moral. Mark accepted the explanation, but Dudley Warner's friends say that the book stop ped selling when the public found out how bad it was, and Warner privately admits it. However, the profits to the authors were $14,000, and would have been $2,000 more, had not Warner's pre diction, when Mark Twain proposed to use Col. ji,scuol seller's name, come true. Dudley Warner sat in his editorial chair in the Hartford Courant office fine day, so the intimat friend says, a few weeks alter "The Giulea Age" ha;' uii published. The door opened and . man with a broad brimmed hat stood on the threshold. When Warner looked un and caught the tall man's eye, he felt a growing sensation ot weakness, and wished that Mark Twain was there. The card that the tall man handed him, as Warner knew without looking at it, bore the name of Col. Eschol Sellers. Only a few words passed between them, and after the interview was over, War ner hastened to Mark Twain's house. Money or a suit was Col. Eschol Sellers' ultimatum. There was a meeting of lawyers, and Col. Eschol Sellers lett Hartford $2,000 richer, and with the promise that all fu ture editions should appear with the name changed to Col. Beriah Sellers. llus explains why in a few copies of ..lit. y i.l .1 . i ne uuiucn Age" me name appears as Col. Eschol and in all others as Col. Be riah. In this respect Mark Twain's prophecy that Col. Eschol Sellers would be a serious reality was fulfilled. John T. Raymond did not like Beriah and substituted Mulberry when he dra- iiiai izeu me story. Also, John has a storv of his own to tell ulxjut the bargain with Mark for the ngnt to dramatize the storv. When he buys another play, John says he must put the pound of flesh in the bond, and then he won't be ruined when pay time comes. X. Y. Sun. Coffee-Tea. Coffee-tea is something not absolutely" unheard of, j et certainly quite new to English nomenclature. IlerrTschudi. in his work setting forth his travels in South America and the East, speaks of a bever age which is prepared by the inhabitants of the Indian Archipelago, particularly the Island of Sumatra, and is regarded by them as one of the necessaries of life. Fresh cut twigs of the coffee-tree are ex posed to a slow, clear fire, until the leaves have turned to a dark brown color. The latter are then picked from the stalks, and these again are roasted until the bark, which is used as well as the leaves, peels easily from them. Hot water is poured upon a sutncient quantity of bark and leaves thus prepared, and. with the admix. jure of a 1 ittle sugar, the beverage is ready. This coffee-tea was brought forward for the first time publicly in Europe, at the convocation ot naturalists held at Bremen in 1844, and at the London exhibition, where some specimens were tried, it was shown to contain a considerable quantity otteaine. Yet, although numerous ex. pertinents have proven the excellence nf litis beverage, only small quantities of the riiuieu conee leaves are imported from Brazil for private use. These leaves have a very aromatic smell, and with the right proportions of mixture, the fla vor ot the extract is very agreeable as well as peculiar, singularly resembling the lest Chinese tea and the rarest Mo cha coffee, at different styles of prepara tion. Its effect upon the system is like that produced by tea, only less power ful. Prices will form the turning point of its general introduction in the West ern world. In Sumatra a pound of roasted coffee leaves costs about 10 cents, but in Brazil it could be procured at much less rates, since the method of pre paring is cheap and easy. Even should prices, however, approach those of the real coffee Dr. Tschudi recommends the coffee-tea for general consumption, not merely lecause of its cheapness, but for its pleasant properties. Only one half me quantity is required for a decoction that we usually take of the coffee bean, and there are kinds that could be sold considerably cheaper than the finer sort aoove mentioned. When the need of aromatic beverages and condiments is so great that 2,500 million pounds of tea, and 759 million pounds of coff an nually consumed, not to speak of other similar substances, there is something in this fresh resource worth the attention of oriental ana South American traders.

Honesty is not swerving policy, but stable principle. An honest man is honest from his soul, uur ucigns to stoop to meanness, though grvai results nang on me petty iraud. The business man who thinks that '"a few lines on the local side occasionally. is all the advertising he needs, is twin brother to the man who covered the back door of a poor house with a colored pos ter announcing an excursion to the Paris exposition. iirookville Democrat. A St. Joseph lawver recently had a client,, who entrusted him to collect a bill of $14, which was satisfactorily done, and the money handed over to the right ful claimant. Then the limb of the Taw presented to his client a bill of $44, foe services rendered in the collection of the $14, and made him pay it. Nobody, not even his client, will doubt that the St. Joseph lawyer is a practical man, and altogether successful in his business methods. - At the depot: Foreigner' "Is that the Emperor of Germany at the desk in there Y" Employe "O, not" Foreign er "Perhaps, then, he is the President ot the road?" .Employe "Not at all, not at all ; he's -an ordinary person, em ployed on a salary, same as myself."
