When Napoleon wws a student at Brl

of the examiners the following ques
tion: "Supposing you' were in an invest
ed town, threatened with starvation,
how would you supply yourself -with
provisions?" 'From the enemy," re
plied the sublieutenant of artillery.
And this answer so pleased the exam
iners that they passed him without fur

fee Vof Suvaroffs sergeants obtained
promotion from the ranks by giving
the very same answer, when asked lhe
very same question. Whether it was
that Napoleon had read his Story some
where nnd luckily remembered the ser
geant's answer at the right moment or
whether, as one writer says aneot the
speech the beef eater, "AH that can
be said Is that two people happened to
hit upon the ' same thought,": we are
unable to say, but the similarity of the
anecdote is, to saythe least of it, a

Strawberries In Shakespeare's Day.
Strawberries have improved; very
much in flavor since the fifteenth century.-
Until then the only strawberries
eaten were wild strawberries, of a
kind which would-never find a market
nowadays. By 1480, however, they
were beginning to be cultivated, for
Holinshed records under that date a
particularly fine crop grown by ' the
bishopi of Ely in the grounds of his
palace, now covered by Batten Gar
den. He quotes the Duke of Gloucester
as saying to the bishop : "My lord, you
bava very good strawberries in 'your
garden' in Holborn. I require you to
let us have a mess of them." This
speech was copied almost verbatim by
Shakespeare In "Richard III." Still,
even the bishop's fruit would not ap
peal much to the modern connois
seurs, for the garden strawberries at
that period were only transplanted
wildings, the plants being sold at
about fourpence a busheL London

Her Grace,'
An Englishwoman of rank, a duchess,
was very apt to forget to pay her bills.
A milliner, whose large bill had been
repeatedly ignored by the duchess, at
last determined to send her little girl,
a pretty child of ten years, for the
money which was so much needed.
"Be sure to ssy 'your grace' to the
duchess," said the anxious mother, and
the child gravely promised to remem
ber. When, after long waiting,, she was
ushered into the presence of her grace
the little girl dropped her a bow of
courtesy, and then, folding her bands
and closing her eyes, she said softly; J
"For what I am about to receive may
the Lord make me truly thankful."
vAs she opened her eyes "and turned
her wistful gaze on the duchess that
person turned very red and without de
Jay made out a check for the amount
due her milliner.

, Old Time Simple Manners.
Richard Evelyn, who died in 1706,
laments in tels diary the" vanishing of
Hhe simple manners that prevailed in
his younger days." "Men," he says,
"courted and chose their wives for
their modesty, frugality, keeping at
home, good housewifery and other eco
homical virtues then in reputation. The
virgins and young lads of that golden
age put their hands to the spindle, nor
disdained they the needle; were obse
quious and helpful to their parents, in
structed in the managery of the family
and gave presages of making excellent
wives. Their retirements were devout
and religious books and their recrea
tions in the distillatory, the knowledge
of plants and their virtues, for the com
fort of their poor neighbors and use of
their family, which 'wholesome, plaiu
diet and kitchen physic preserved in
perfect health."

Important information was given
the police this morning: by Col. Elmer
H. Havens, secretary of the board of
education and a well known manu
facturer. Mr. Haven and his wife,
with Hanford C. Plumb were driving
over Barnum avenue, toward Laurel
beach, when they met the motor
cycle policeman going in the opposite
direction. Col. Havens and he had
a speaking acquaintance, and they
nodded as they passed.
A few moments later, when the
Havens party was still some distance
from Bishop avenue, Lowe's machine
flashed by. Lowe passed the Havens
car on the right side, cutting close
to the curb. His speed was so great
that the two men In the car com
mented upon it, and watched' him
progressing down the road.
They kept the machine in their
vision until, two blocks ahead, they
saw the Hamilton machine turn out
from back of a billboard that com
pletely hides the side street, up close
to the sidewalk. Collision - was in
evitable. Hamilton's car was g-oirig
slowly, but Lowe's cycle was alto
gether out of , his control, according
to the .witnesses. Lowe struck the
rear of the-machine, diving head first
against the tonneau, and falling limp
and bleeding In the roadway. The
chauffeur, sole occupant of Hamil
ton's c2r, leaped off, jumped on Ha
vens' running board and rode back
to the Whiting factory whence the
ambulance call was sent. Meanwhile
Dr. H. E. Waterhouse and Dr. George
B. Cowell, passing in their machines,
rendered what assistance could be
given the man. Dr. . Pratt hurried
Lowe to the Bridgeport hospital n in
the ambulance. His motorcycle was
literally smashed to pieces, a com
plete wreck. -
Hamilton s tonneau was cracked
where ;Lowe's head fetruek it. The
imprint of his teeth was plainly cut
into the woodwork. The machine was
not badly damaged, except the smash
ing oi a rear wneei., .. , - ;
At the Bridgeport hospital- it was
found , that Lowe's face was crushed.
His skull was fractured in the fore-
Head, his jaw badly shattered. He re
mained unconscious - until the end
came at u o'clock this morning.
Immediately after the -accident Po
lice Sergeant Philip Blansfield was
dispatched to the Lowe home at 1331
Park avenue to ; impart the news to
Mrs.- Lowe, a bride of lees than a year
She hastened to the hospital and re
mained there through; the night until
the end came. .
Investigation of the accident was at
once undertaken by the police depart
ment. The police ran down . a story
that Lowe was ' pursuing, a" Hudson
touring car bearingr a New York ' li
cense number, but when they talked
with, the eye witnesses in the Havene"
party, and other, witnesses, they dis
missed the tale as unfounded. They
are convinced that Lowe's death was
due-to his own recklessness.
No later than . yesterday morning
Lowe hadi been . warned against speed
ing. He was at the rear of police
headquarters with his machine when
Captain ; Russell, who is investigating
the local department, and Superintend
ent Birmingham walked '. through the
yard.- The . New Tork policeman ex

Ventriloquism Is no science, but mere
ly a trick In the manipulation of the
voice, which after much practie is
Able to be done in a way to deceive. It
consists mereTy in the varied modifica
tions of the sounds produced in the
larynx In Imitation of the modifications
which distance imposes npon the voice.
The essential mechanism of ventrilo
quism consists in taking a full breath,
then keeping the muscles of the neck
and chest fixed and speaking with the
mouth almost closed and the lips "and
lower Jaw as motionless . as . possible, j
while , air is very .; slowly expelled
through a' narrow glottis. - Care is also
taken that none ' of the expired air es
capes through the nose. . Much- of the
ventriloquist'1 skill, however, in imi
tating sounds coming from -particular
directions depends on deaiving other
senses than hearing. The direction
from. "which sounds reach the ear is
never very clearly distinguished, ; and
when the attention Is directed to a par
ticular point the imagination is apt to
refer to that point whatever sounds we
may hear. Philadelphia Press.
- Ths Tree In the Picture.
I confess that to me much of the de
light, of &n early morning landscape of
Corot or Claude Monet is due In no
small measure to the music of sing
ing birds. Though not one is to be
seen, I am sure they are .there.
There is a story told of Corot that he
was once painting in a tTo$A, while
near him sat another pSler whose
creed was to record things in nature
Just as they are. Coming oer to the
,eaael of Pere Corot, he said:
"Why, you are not painting this
scene at all as It really Is. You have
left out that large rock yonder and
pat In a birch tree there is no such
tree to be seen."
With a confiding smile Corot replied:
"If you'll not say anything about It, I
will tell you why I put in that birch.
It was to please the birds." Atlantic.
,When Brodie Bluffed frlitchell.
Once, when in England, Steve Brodie,
the famous bridge jumper, was In a
party which included Charlie Mitchell,
the prizefighter. Mitchell made some
remarks derogatory to John L. Sulli
van, to which Brodie . rejoined with
some sarcastic observations on the
sprinting ability Mitchell displayed
while in the ring with Sullivan. This
angered the prizefighter, who knocked
Brodie flat. As he scrambled to his
feet Mitchell made another rush at
him, but by then Brodie had a pistol
In his hand and, thrusting it under his
assailant's nose, remarked: "You think
you're goin' to make a reputation off
