Perforated Bible in Demand Among the Smart Set. In the curio dealer’s private office lay a half-dozen shabby pocket Bl« hies, each pierced two-thirds through with a round hole, like a bullet hole. “They are bullet holes,” said the dealer. “I know they are, because I made them myself.” He gave a loud laugh. ‘‘A good many of my rich patrons,” he said, “like to have among their heirlooms Bibles that hr saved some soldier’s ancestral life.” He winked. “If you are a son of the revolution," he said, “what a nice thing it is to take down one of these perforated Bibles from a shelf in the library and hand it to your guest, saying: “This Bible saved the life of mj maternal sixty-third cousin, Col. Ad onlram McGill, in the night attack npon the British, led by Gen. Jones at Bear Creek, on the 3d day of Aug* ust, and so forth, and so on.” “Yes,” said the dealer, “I sell a good many of these Bibles to people with ancestors. To own such things is one of the fads and fancies of the smart ■ot.’’—Louisville Courier-Journal. STRICT RULES FOR DIPLOMATS Venetian Ambassadors Hold Sternly to Their Duties.

No present could be received without the consent of the state. After 1288 each envoy was required by law to file a written report of his ministry with the keeper of the archives. Later it was made unlawful for an ambassador to hold conversation with strangers or to write letters on political questions addressed to persons not connected with the government. So severe were the regulations that it became a diffi cult matter to obtain the best men for the foreign service. Fines had to be imposed upon the appointees who r*> fused to depart for their p«ts. STATESMAN ENJOYED THE FAIR Simple Recreation Indulged in by the Late W. E. Gladstone. In a recently published life of Lord Granville appears this of Mr. Glad stone. He “came over with Mrs. Glad stone and Lord and Lady Sydney, whose guest he was at Deal, because —you could not guess it in a thou sand—because there was to be a fair that afternoon and Mr. Gladstone wanted to try a merry-go-round. In deed, we all went after luncheon, and it was only on assuring him that the opposition papers would make fun of it next morning that Mr. Gladstone re nounced a ‘suree’ on the merry-go round, and he did his best to console himself by strolling into every booth, from the giant woman to the calf with eight legs; every possible monstrosity was honored by the premier's vis’t, who seemed to enjoy himself more than the schoolboys to whom their dons showed the G. 0.
