Woman Merely Had Little Account to ettlo with Husband. - She was a middle seed colored wom an of muscular build, and as she stepped at one or the gates In the Union depot tbe other morning the of ficial took notice that she was greatly perturbed and breathing bard.

"MANLY ART" IN FRANCE, Sport of Boxing Just Now Something of a Craxe. Boxing has become outte the rage In Paris: the old savate, with its ef fective high kicking, has been dis carded for tbe "noble art" of Britain. But our lively neighbor 'hj Gaul has always had a sneaking affection for a manly bout of fisticuffs a l'Anglals. When Owen Swift, the Ismous cham pion of theelightwelgli .,, took refuge In Paris after killing Lis opponent, Brighton Bill, In a prize fight, he was patronised by all the members of the French Jockey club. A tier a fierce battle at Charenton with Jack Adams, another pugilist of renown. Swift was arrested and brought before the Pari! tribunal of correctional police on a charge of "having inflicted wounds oc casioning an Incapacity to labor for less than 20 days." OweV's description In bis evidence, of the course of training which he had to go through bad an amusing effect upon the young sporting swells of Paris For months afterward these yo nig exquisites might be seen going at their best pace along the streets and boulevards, muffled up to their eyes in sweater! and greatcoats, getting into condition for boxing. T. V. O. of London. Coals at Newcastle. If fish is the greatest brain food, as scientists have said, then Boston Is in a fair way to outstrip tbe rest of the country hi brain development with out half trying. In a recent two days there were brought to T wharf the greatest flsh mart or the coun try more than two million pounds of flsh. Including large and small cod. haddock, hake, pollock, halibut and various other species 'iof the deep. This enormous catch has been brought by 100 schooners, round numbers, 65 of which arrived on one day and the remainder the day following. Granting that the fleet of 100 schoon ers average 20 men to the vessel (which probably Is a high estimate). and the average sum coming to each fisherman, outside or the captain, is about 120, representing from five days to between two and hree weeks at sea. Of course, the rums vary, accord ing to the vessel-, the catch and tbe time spent at "sea. Some schooner brought in as high as 75.000 pounds and some little more than 5.000; some had five men In the crew and some 25; some caught plenty of large cod and some very few. Boston Transcript. A Word to the Wise. A corporation conducting a series of quick lunch places accords con spicuous position to a placard reading as follows: "A Suggestion Perhaps a large nuhiber of our patrons who daily fav or us with their money, instead of taking luncheon at 12 o'clock could just as couveniently come at 12:45 p. in., and thus find more comfortable seats; or they might arrange to fix 1:30 aB lunch time, and thereby be afforded still more elbow space." Managers at several of the branches situated in business sections are an thority for the statement that since the advent of the signs the nigh noon attendance has been larger than be fore. N. Y. Press. Charity's Biggest Achievement. The highest achievement or char ity is to love our enemies; but to bear cheerfully with our neighbor's fallings is scarcely an Inferior grace. It is easy enough to lovo those who are agreeable and obliging; but to love one who Is cross, perverse,, tire some. Is as unpleasant a process as shewing pills. Nevertheless, this, the best way of practising it, is to put our selves In tbe place or him who tries us, and to Bee how we would wish him to trest us ir we had his defects. We must put ourselves in the place of buyer when we sell, and seller wben we buy, if we want to deal fairly. MR. RILEY DID NOT KNOW. Woman Reporter Asked Question Hard to Answer. A friend of James Whltcomb Riley tells a story of an encounter the bach elor poet once had with a woman re porter. Tbe energetic young woman after strenuous effort had finally caught Mr. Riley at tbe telephone. This is the conversation that fol lowed: "I this Mr. Riley?" "Yes. That Is Miss?" "Miss Jones, of the Courier-Journal. I've been trying all day to get an in terview with you, Mr. Riley." 'Ah, would it were a view Instead of an Interview," said the poet, gal lantly. 'Oh, thanks. How long will you remain in Louisville, Mr. Riley?" "Only a short time." "Is your wife with you?" "No, ma'am, she is not." "Where Is she, may I ask?" "You may ask, my dear Miss Jones, but I find It very difficult to answer. I am In absolute Ignorance of her whereabouts. For aught I know :o the contrary, she may right now be at the other end of this telephone!" There was much laughter, and after ward an effort to resume the Inter view. But in vain. Mr. Riley had es caped. Home Companion. WHERE INGENUITY WON OUT. Betting Man Had Studied Condition of Wager. C. S.

The athlete took the bet. and made the trial. But there were 41 steps to the flight, and therefore, after making 20 hops the man found that he had lost. He paid rp. but accused CapL Bragge of sharp practice. .'"Sharp practice!' said Bragge, in dignantly. Well. 1 11 make the same bet with you that 1 can do it.' . "The other, expert ibg to win his money back, assented. "Capt. Bragge then hepped up 40 steps in 20 hops sin), hopping back one, finished In the prescribed manner and won tbe bet." Hi Whereabout.
