MEN AND AFFAIRS. Paul Gabel, who died In New Yortt recently at the age of 84, is reputed to have been thé originator In America of the "delicatassen" store. He was a native of Germany and opened a deli catassen store in New York city nearly three-quarters of a century ago. Congressman Boutell proposes as a means of promoting annexation the in termarriage of young Americans and Canadians, adding that he had already taken his wife from Canada. His re mark recalls to the Toronto Globe the southern Irishman's reply to a question as to how the southern women regarded secession:^ "Sure, they're all for union. °rf i Ex-Sheriff "Tom" Dunn, of New York, has long since won a reputation as a wit. In consequence a number of alleged witticisms are tacked to his name that were never perpetrated by; him. "Dunn," said a friend to him the' other day, "what is the cleverest thing you ever said?" "I don't know." sighed the ex-sheriff, "but it was probably said by someone else." j Sir Thomas Upton has faith in the' luck of the individual, and this year, for the first time, he will be joined in America by his mascot. This is Mr. Carmichael, the secretary of the Lip ton company, whom Sir Lipton calls his "lucky man." Mr. Carmichael has) been associated with the owner of the' Shamrock III. since almost thf begin nmg of his business career, which be gan in a small shop in a mean street of Glasgow. j On the 30th of July Samuel M. Shaw retired from editorial management of the Cooperstown (N. Y.) Freeman's Journal, having conducted that sterling democratic weekly for 52 years. He is now SO years old. In a published card Mr. Shaw says: "I have fortunate ly experienced but little sickness and never severe enough to prevent my do ing some work each week; have been confined to my room but few days in the last 52 years, and never an entire day to my bed. Only once have I been ab sent from the office for a longer period than ten days, and that was in January, 1S7G. It is full time to lower my flag and take a rest." There are several young premiers in various parts of the British empire, but the latest is the youngest of all. He is R. McBride, the new premier of Brit ish Columbia, who was born in New Westminster, the original capital of that western Canadian province, 33 years asro. He went, to the other end of the dominion for his education, as he llaHfax i<1, in te i ^ bar of BriMsh Pnl^.T " ' h ° Dar oi isritisn Columbia, and six y pars later he entered the parliament of the province of which he is now prime min ister, so that his term of political prep aration for the premiership was less than five years.

CURIOUS OBSERVATIONS. r A bare foot—12 Inches. Standing well in the eyes—tears. Only one way to brace up—get mar ried. Never sought for, but often reached —old age. To have a good ear for the drum one wants a good drum for the ear. A left-handed man is often right, but a right-handed man is offener left. When single you have your own way. When married you halve your own way —perhaps. Prodigious strength makes the race horse all the harder to pass; not so with the butter. A Georgia paper made mention of a negress 99 years old and referred to her as Aunty Belle. In another column it mentioned a negro, Elijah Houston, 100 years old, and referred to him as ante bellum.— N. Y. Herald. NOVELTIES IN JEWELRY.; Hatpins having hand-painted china heads are seen. Enameled mandolins, guitars, tennis rackets and other like things are seen among the belt buckle designs. A beautiful brooch is in the form of a lizard and is made of small diamonds. Down the center of the back is a row of emeralds and the eyes are rubies. A pretty piece of jewelry is a large Bowknot of diamonds, with the long ends and loops drooping downward and having at each end a large solitaire. To hang on the long chains are small spheres about as large as an English walnut, which come in gold, silver or gun metal. These small balls unscrew and display hidden in their centers lit tle powder puffs.__^ __ PICKPQCKE TS L IKE FAT MEN - LUrht-KInsered Expert Tells Why His Kind Prefer Them to Thin Subjects to Work On. Fat me n of easy temperament are the favoriu pre y of the pr( , fessiona . pickpockets, according to no less an an thority than "Molly Matches," who his day served time in many prison in the process of learning to let thin, nervous individuals alone when p 1 y in• - his lawless trade, says the Chicago Tribune. * Like all "good dips," this particular pickpocket was a respectable looking fellow, who would pass ummiiced in a crowd. He had lots of experience and i k,,ew hi * business thoroughly. His reasons, as given by himself, were these: "Experience has taught me that nervousness and fidgetiveness are usutii characteristics of thin people when in a crowd. Therefore, they are more apt to turn suddenly around : nr! take quicker notice of any pu.-li or i -tiin«' they may receive Ï have in v-iri-tl it j found that such people are constant!V <>n the alert, so that they are not s< easily got at as more corpulent and consequently easier going people, it is a deuced sight more difficult to take anything from them without detection than it is from the individuals of mort extended corporosity. who fall into passive attitudes and reveries' that render them quite unconscious of tiie sly. stealthy hand of the pickpocket." This theory is known to all expert police and they govern themselves in acordanee with the rule to always watch the fat ones when looking for a "dip." A DISAPPOINTED DOG. He W»> a Hanter and the CaehlBall In the Dry Good« Store Fooled Him. A young lady went into a large dry goods store on a shopping expedition having for a companion a big. hand huy * n ' in a " d out and '»tween bun <lr, ' fis of the pointer dashed some dog. He was a pointe.. .. .... manner in which he trotted sM.'utih along and kept out of evi iyl-,o< \ V u; ,\ -1 aved that he was as in; handsome. The young lady having made her purchase, the shop-girl put the check and the money in a wooden ball and sent it along the "cash rail way, relates Golden Days. At the first "whiz" the dog pricked up his ears, and the next instant he started after the ball as if he were morally sure it was some new kind of bird. Past the crowds of Chris: mas' until the ball disappeared from view. Illen he looked puzzled and then humilia led, and was coming back to his indignant mistress when llie ball .•aim- whizzing on its return trip. '1 his time t he dog exprès:-' d his feel ings by short yelps as he (1. ,v after his gam--, and this time he took the short route along the counter and fetched up in front of the shop girl, leaving bellind^ him a trail of dismayed shop pers. Then the ball was given him to investigate, and a more disappointed dog was never seen. OYSTERS AND DISEASE. The Green Color of Some May Be A« tribute*! to Various Cause« No* Harmful. In a recent scientific work by Profs. Herdman and Boyce, entitled "Oysters and Disease," they report the result of lheir investigations on the cause which produces green oysters. Many epi cures prefer their oysters to have the emerald hue, though there is a wide spread opinion that green oysters are not edible, says the Chicago Tribune. The investigators arrive at the eon elusion that there are several forms of greenness. Copper is said to be present in minute quantity in all oys ters. It was found that the greenest American oysters contained about four times the amount of copper which is present in the whitest American oysters. Careful chemical examina tion demonstrated conclusively that there is proportionately more copper in the greener parts of the oysters than in those parts which are less green. The green color of the highly prized Mart-lines oysters was found to be produced by the presence of q certain pigment and did not depend upon the amount of the contained copper. A G <mmI Rifle Shot. A peculiar incident happened at the Yarran, Victoria, rifle ranges. A man was taking aim at 400 yards and just as he fired several magpies flew in front of him, about 2QP yards distant. The bullet struck one of the magpies and brought it to the ground and a bull's-eye was registered by the mark er for the shot. A bull's-eye and mag pie were thus scored for one shot. Freeses Deep. William Boone, a miner, says the Kansas City Journal, who has come down from Dawson City, Klondike, to spend the winter with relatives at La 1'lata, says he lias dug 225 feet in the ground of his claim, but has never been able to reach a point where the ground was not frozen. 4» ----- Turkish Honey.
