' A eomapondent of the London Times
hu discovered In tha French notional
archives an original memorandum In
which the famous sea rover, Paul Jones,
told the story of one of the occurrences
connected with hia raid on the British
coast In 1778. Jonet wrote:
Returning on board the Ranger, the
wind being favorable, I sailed for the Scot
tish coast, My Intention was to capture
the Earl of Selkirk and detain him as a
hostage. Accordingly the same day, April
S3, 1773, about noon, having with me
single boat, only two officers and a small
guard, I landed on that nobleman'sestata.
On landing X met some of the Inhab
itants, who, taking me for an Englishman,
told me that Lord Selkirk was then in
London, but that my lady, his wife, and
several lady friends were at home. This
made me resolve to return immediately to
my boat and go bock to the Ranger. This
moderate conduct was not to the taste of
my men, who were Inclined to pillage,
burn and devastate all they could. Though
this would have been making war after
the fashion of the English, I did not think
it fit to imitate them, especially on this oc
casion, considering what was due to a lady,
It was necessary, however, to find some
compromise to satisfy the cupidity of my
crew and to spare Lady Selkirk. I had
only a moment for choice. What seemed to
me best to reconcile everything was to or
der the two officers to go to the mansion
with my guard, which was to remain out
-side under arms while they alone entered.
They were then politely to ask for the fam
ily plate, to stay only a few minutes, to
take what was given them without de
manding anything more and return im
mediately afterward without proceeding
to any search.
I was strictly obeyed. The plate was
given up. Lady Selkirk told the officers
several times over that she was very sensi
ble of the moderation shown by me. She
even wished to come to the beach, a mllo
from her mansion, to Invito me to dine
with her, but the officers begged her not
to take the trouble to do this.

Ridicule the Test of Truth.
It is said that ridicule is the test of truth.
And there is a true senso In the saying.
The Platonic irony which is really the
feigning of ignorance In order to get a man
to moke a fool of himself may illustrate
this. And, to look at the matter from an
other point of view, it may be seriously
maintained that wo never really believe a
thing until we are oblo to treat it sportive

mans would say the man who does tho

Carlyle, in one of his early letters, speaks
of a sense of the ridiculous as "brotherly
sympathy with the downward side. " It is
a most pregnant saying. "Twenty-seven
millions, mostly fools." Well, better to
view them as fools than as knaves. For the
emotion raised by folly is rather pity and
ruth than anger. Then, again, the ludi
crous, and especially the variety of it which
we call satire, is an Inestimable Instrument

Emrllah Lodging Bonae Keepers,
The lurge hotels are rapidly ruining the
lodging houses in seaside and country re
sorts. Great is the lamentation 01 tne
landladies, yet thoy have brought the evil
on themselves. Their rapacity ana on
bridled Insolence have met with their own
reward. No sensible person now prefers the
comfortless antimacassar adorn ea rooms,
the dirty slavey, the smoky fires, the ill
oooked food and the long list of irritating
extras, culminating in the charge for tho
cruet so amusingly satirized in one or Mr.
Kendal's plays, to tho fixed prices, the

the up to dato hostelry, where disputes
over extras are Almost entirely obviated,

burns mora coal In a week than a country

S. I have devoted some thought to the
proper method of changing trains. The
system which I have observed to be most
popular with travelers or my own class is
something as follows: Suppose that you
have boon told on leaving New York that
yon are to change at Kansas City. The
evening before approaching Kansas City
stop the conductor in the aisle of the oar
you can do this beet by putting out your
foot and tripping him ana say politely,
"Do I change at Kansas City!"
Ho says, Yes."
Vary good. Don t believe mm. on
going Into tho dining oar for sapper take
a negro aside and put it to him as a per
sonal matter between a white man aud a
black whether be thinks you ought to
ohange at Kansas City. Don't be satisfied
with this. In the coarse or toe evening
pass through the entire train from time to
tlino and soy to people casually, "Oh, can
you toll mo If I change at Kansas City?"
Ask tho conductor about it a rew more
times in the ovenlog. A repetition of the
question will insure pleasant personal re
lations with him. Before falling asleep
watch for bis passage and ask him through
the curtains of your berth, "Oh, by the
way, did you soy I ohanged at Kansas
Qtyf" If be refuses to stop, book him by
the nook with your walking stiok and
draw him gontiy to your bedside. In the
morning when the train stops and a man
colls, "Kansas City all change I" ap
proach the oonduotor again and say, "Is
this Kansas City?" Don't be discouraged
at bis answer. Plok yourself up and go
to the other end of the cor and say to the
brakeman, "Do .you know, sir, if this Is
Kansas City?" Don't be too easily con
vinced. Remember that both brakeman
and oonduotor may be in collusion to do
oeive you. Look round therefore for tho
name of the station on the signboard.
Having found It, alight and ask the first
man you see if this Is Kansas City, hie
will answer: "Why, where In blank are
your blank eyes? Cant you see it there,
plain as blank?" When you hear language
of this sort ask no more, xon are now
In Missouri, and this is Kansas City.
8. 1 have observed that it is now the
practice of the oonduotors to stick bits of
paper in the hats of the passengers. They
do this, I believe, to mars wnicn ones
they like best The devloe is pretty and
adds much to tho soenio appearance of
the oar. But I notion, with pain, that the
system Is fraught with much trouble for
the conductors. The task or crusning two
or throe passengers together In order to
reach over them and stick a ticket Into
the chinks of a silk skullcap, is embarrass
ing for a oonduotor of refined feelings. It
would be simpler If the conductor should
carry a small hammer and a packet of
sblngre nails and nail the paid np passen
ger to the bock of the seat, or, better still,
let the oonduotor carry a sinau pox oi paint
and a brush and mark the passengers In
such a way that be cannot easily mistake
them. In the case of baldheaded passen
gers the hats might be politely removed
and rod crosses pointed on the oranlums.
