edible and nourishing, says The Lan

Buccleuch.
Commit Sport by Proxy.
"Vandal," a well known writer on
sports, said In a recent Issue of the
London Express: "The sports of this
country are absolutely rotten un

nation of odds-taking people who com
mit sport by proxy."

Joseph Blythe, a resident of Ches

LINCOLN INSTITUTE NOTES.
The Clerk Whistled.
A Scotch minister Instructed his
clerk, who sat among the congrega
tion during Bervice, to give a low
whistle if anything in her sermon ap
peared to be exaggerated. On hear
ing the minister say: "In those days
there were snakes fifty feet long,"
the clerk gave a subdued whistle. "I
should have said thirty feet." added
the minister. Another whistle from
the clerk. On sonsultlng Thompson's
Concordance," said the minister, "I
see the length is twenty feet." Still
another whistle; whereupon the
preached leaned over and said In a
stage whisper: "Ye can whistle as
much as ye like MasPherson, but I'll
no take anlther foot off for anybody!"
In Crimean Times.
In Crimean times (says the "Tat
tler") the Highland regiments were
so full of Hlberians that many stories
were current exploiting the iact. One
gallant Scottish colonel, it was I aid,
resolved to take the sense of the reg
Iment on the vital question of adopt
ing the plaid as an essential part of
the uniform. When the orderly came
to report the result, tho colonel was
scandalized to find that only two of
his men favored the suggestion, "And
who are there two gallant Highland
ers?" he asked. "Ooch!" replied the
orderly, "sure It's Corporal O'Brien
an' Private O'Callaghan, sorr!"
The Color Line.
If, as Is now claimed by un enstern
Individual. St. Peter Is or was a color

Denver will not be considered so
serious as to bar him from tho New
Jerusalem. Denver News.

A curious discovery has been made
In the course of some excavations that
have been in progress in St. Martin
de Re, In France. The excavators un
es-i.hed IrenchesCIi which lay skele
tons which were presumably those of
the citizens who fell fighting there in
defending the town against the Eng
lish In 1C2T. Among the skeletons
was found a spherical Iron bomb con
taining a most black powder, which
was found to consist of about a third
of nitre, a third of carbon, and a fifth
of sulphur, the remainder being Iron
oxide derived from the rusting of the
iron shell.

LILLIAN BUYS HER OWN TICKETS
How She Made a Speculator Look
Very Small.
Lillian Itussell Saturday took mat
ter Into her own hands to solve the
problem of the ticket speculator. At
'Z o'clock she whiz-zed up to the front
of Proctor's Twenty-third Street the
ater and, as she alighted from Hie ear,
the most persistent of the speculators
sidled up to her and thrusting a bunch
of tickets upon her, said:
"I've tho last twenty good seals in
the house, (live you the best two
for Can't get any at the box. of
fice." Miss Russell took the bunch of
tickets as If to look them over and
makes her selection and walked rapid
ly toward the box office. The specu
lator, who had never had any tickets
taken from lilin before by prospective
purchasers, pressed close upon her
loudly demanding a reliiru of his tick
ets. Miss Russell stepped to tho win
dow nnd handing Hie twenty tickets
to I he i rcasiii'iT, said :
"Here iiiv twenty fill-cent splits. This
speculator tried to sell two of tliein
to me at $l.."o apii (live him $!
for thrill," mid with it smile entered
the theater nnd proceeded to her
dressing room.
Tho speculator frothed at the mouth.
Ho demanded his tickets back, but
tho treasurer, standing upon tho legal
rights of theatrical managers estab
lished in tho courts to the effect that
tickets mo not tratisfci'i'iihlc and thai
they have the rlgnt to revoke the n '
trance and return the money for those "
transferred to persons offensive to tho
management, refused.
"I bought those tickets from ou,"
roared the speculator.
"You certainly did not," said tho box
office man. "I have never sold n
ticket to you and never will. 1 know
you too wtdl. Vou have been thrown

bought by other people, whom you
sent here. They wore transferred to
you by those people. There is your

thrown out."
The speculator made his escape.
