ASKED FOR A CRITICISM.
The Lecturer Got a Reply and
Surprise as Well.
Mr. Albon P. Man, the American
scientist who invented incandescent
lighting by the use of a carbon filament
in a vacuum, when he was about sev
enty years of age looked more like a
banker than a scientist and in the sub
dued light of a lecture room appeared
at a distance like a young man.
Some years ago he attended a lec
ture in Brooklyn upon the higher prob
lems of electrical science, delivered by
a "professor" with many titles and de
grees. At the close the speaker called
for comments and criticisms from the
auditors.
Mr. Man, who was sitting well back
in the hall arose and, quoting a long
statement from the lecture concerning
a difficult process, asked if he had
heard it correctly.
"With remarkable accuracy, sir." re
plied the lecturer. "They are almost
my very words.'*
The inventor then clearly but cogent
ly tore- the lecturer's argument tc
pieces, greatly to the latter's astonish
ment and to the amusement of the au
dlence. As he sat down the lecturei
said:
"I can hardly reply at present. YOXJ
seem to have some information on the
subject."
"Yes," replied Mr. Man. "I discov
ered the process myself nearly thirty
years ago."Pearson's Weekly.
COURTSHIP IN SPAIN.
A Difficult Business In Which Speak
ing Tubes Play a Part.
In Spain, as is well known, a rigorous
etiquette governs* the business of love
making. A young man cannot inter
view his sweetheart without her par
ents' consent, and indeed all conversa
tion openly carried on between the
couple must be in the presence of the
fair one's mother.
Many subterfuges are adopted by the
lovers to overcome this difficulty, and
the "reja"the ornamental ironwork or
the windows of Spanish houseshas
become one of the favorite trysting
places. Modern life, however, has im
posed fresh barriers. If a young man's
sweetheart lives on the third floor of a
city building he cannot very well meet
her at the "reja."
In this as in other spheres of life
necessity is the mother of invention,
and some ardent lovers have brought
speaking tubes to their assistance. The
senorita. at the appointed hour, lowers
this to her lover below, and they are
thus able to carry on their love affairs
with the assurance that they are not
overheard by the people on the inter
vening flats, as would be the case if the
conversation were carried on without
such aid.London Answers.
Thackeray's Favorite Books.
In her introduction to the "Round
about Papers" in the centenary edition
of Thackeray. Lady Ritchie speaks of
her father's favorite booka Thackeray
had an old Montaigne, which he al-
He
had a second copy, still older, bound in
white vellum, on the book shelves in
his study. Lady Ritchie cannot re
member that he had any particular
feeling for special editions. "He used
a cheap, battered old Boswell with dou
ble columns, the companion with
whom, as he said, he could have been
quite content to dwell for a year upon
that problematical desert island. He
loved his 'Don Quixote.' He also liked
his shabby, worm eaten copy of John
son's poets. They had been to India
and back, and bookworms are very
common out there." Milton's sonnet
to Shakespeare in Johnson's poets was.
Lady Ritchie adds, one of the last
things Thackeray ever read.
Learning His Father's Business.
"What?" exclaimed the wealthy
Cleveland papa who had put his son to
work in order to teach him a few
things. "What? Fired after working
one week?"
"Yes. dad I was discharged."
"What was the trouble?"
"They said I was too green for
them."
"What was your mistake?"
"I paid a bill the first time the col
lector called!"
"Aha! And now you see how foolish
you were?"
"Yes, dad. I'll never do it again."
"My son, you have served your ap
prenticeship and learned your lesson.
You may now come into the office with
me.*'Cleveland Plain Dealer.
His Composition.
"Now. Johnny," said the teacher aft
er she had explained the meaning of
the word, "I wish you would write a
sentence containing the word defeat."
After a struggle which lasted for about
twenty minutes Johnny announced
that he was ready to be heard, "please
feet.*'Chicago Record-Herald.
