In Vanity Fair. p- §L it- #v A Woman wishing to purchase Hap piness at any price was directed to a booth in Vanity Fair. "I wish," she said, "to buy a Wom an's Friendship." "Madam," said the Clerk in attend ance, "such commodities are not for sale. I am told, however, that they are awarded to deserving applicants at a house on Good Fellow Street. Xhere are two women passing yonder .with a Friendship between them." "I have neither time nor strength to A Polite Discharge. "It is possible," said a New York man, "to be polite always. It is pos sible to be polite even when discharg ing a drunken coachman. I know that this is so, for I have, seen the thing done. "A friend of mine found himself obliged to get rid of his coachman for drunkenness. He summoned the man into his presence and discharged him with this polite speech: 'I fear, Montgomery, that we must part. It has been impossible for me to avoid noticing that several times dur ing the past month you have been—er —sober. Now, I don't believe that any man can attend properly to drinking if he has driving to do, and, therefore, at the month's end you will be free to de vote yourself exclusively to your cho sen occupation.'" Cutting Jewel* Under Water. "The precious stone workers of Ger many are among the most interesting persons I have ever seen when engaged in cutting their jewels," said a well known traveler. "The principal indus-! had asked him try is at Freiburg, on the edge of the Black forest, in which the precious stones are found. The principal jew-' els are amethyst, lapis lazuli and mala chite. Tho process of cutting them is I the interesting part of the work. All of them are cut under water. The jewel cutters lie flat upon their stom achs while at work, with their hands under water, holding tho stone which is being prepared, and the motion of the wheel does the cutting. The action of the water makes the process more rapid and at the same time leaves a better surface than if cut in the air." Bears That iv PImIi For Salmon. Alaska's brown bears near tho Bering sea live largely on salmon and are ex traordinary fishers. Before beginning to fish they always place themselves on the downward side of the river. "They seem to smell the salmon by some extraordinary means," says a hunter, "and then begin dashing in and out of the river at some shallow place, rarely failing to catch a fish. They bring it out on the bank and devour it, if possible selecting some thick patches of bushes and grass in which to make their meal, which not take them long." •••_ True Grentneu. True greatness first of all is a thing of the heart. It is all alive with ro bust and generous sympathies. It is neither behind its age nor too far be fore it. It is up with its age and ahead of it only just so far as to be able to lead its march. It cannot slumber, for activity is a necessity of its existence. It is no reservoir, but a fountain.— Koswell D. Hitchcqpk. jV" The Way of Man. When a man and his wife start to go anywhere, says a Missouri paper, he tells her to get out his good suit, fix the buttons in his shirt, get his cuffs, good shoes, tie his necktie, brush his hat, perfume his handkerchief and a few other little jobs. Then be puts on his fcat and says: "Great Scott! Ain't you ready yet?"—Kansas City Journal. He Waa. "Disappointed in her husband?" ex claimed Mrs. De Style in surprise.

Chief Justice Fuller of the United States' supreme court was on a visit to Maine some years ago and while there was entertained by Joe Manley. Mr. Manley was held in great reverence by bis fellow citizens all over Maine and especially in Augusta, his home. He took Mr. Fuller for a drive about the place, but was forced by a pressing business engagement to leave his guest before the drive was finished. When Mr. Manley had disappeared the driver turned to the judge, whom he did not know, and, drawing out a cigar, said: "I suppose you don't mind if I smoke. When we are driving Mr. Manley we faever light up, because he's rather a distinguished citizen." Fuller repress ed a laugh and told the driver to go ahead, which he did. Later the chief justice retailed the joke to Mr. Manley, who at the first opportunity told the driver a few things, winding up, "You miserable three ply idiot, that was the chief justice of the United States.". -5 gram at Foggia, killing three and Reading: a Telegram. There are two members of uie racing fraternity, both ardent horse owners, Whose early education was sadly neg lected, and neither can read. Both conceal to the best of their ability their shortcomings in this regard. One of them received a telegram the other day, but he could not read it and did not wish to expose his ignorance. He met the second horseman, and as he was looking anything but pleasant he was accosted with: "What's the matter? You look like trouble." "Trouble? Sure. Just read that. And he thrust the telegram into his friend's hands. "Well, I should say it was trouble!" was the unexpected reply. "I'm sorry for you, old fellow." And the tele -was handed back, neither being any wiser as to its contents. At this juncture a stable boy came whistling along, and the recipient of the message hailed him with a jocular remark and after quizzing him awhile said: "I'll bet you can't read, son.' "Huh, that's where you're way off! I kin readme good as you kin.' "Well, let's hear you read that. If you can it's a two bit piece for you." The harmless telegram was read, and now both of the men are wondering what the other meant by saying the message denoted trouble.—SjSan Fran cisco Chronicle. '.J' The Duty of a Gentleman. On another occasion, having return ed from playing poker at the club, my grandfather said: "When a man is hard up he should borrow, but he must devote his ener gies to paying back and remaining the equal of the man from whom he has borrowed. If he cannot pay back, let him be frank about it, for it is better to steal than to cheat." And again: "To ride straight and to shoot straight, to win money cheerfully and to lose' it cheerfully, never to be boor ishly in debt or swinishly drunk, to en joy flowers and music, and if possible to be in love with at least one good woman, is half the duty of a gentle man." "What's the other half, grandpa?" "Why, to be a gentleman, of course." —Gouverneur Morris in Reader Maga zine. A Quotation Traced. Who wrote the words "a prospect all on fire?" They are quoted by Words worth in his "Evening Walk," and Pro fessor Knight and his helpers had been unable to trace it. But Nowell Smith communicates to the Athenaeum his discovery that it comes from a long forgotten poem, "Sunday Thoughts," by Moses Browne. Moses Browne's phrase lives like a fossil in Words worth's poem. Browne died iu 1787 and was not unknown to Dr. Johnson, at whose suggestion he brought out an annotated edition of the "Compleat Angler." His "Sunday Thoughts" was reprinted as late as 1800. He held the living of Oluey for a short time dur ing Oowper's residence there and had John Newton for his curate.—London Globe. ..... Provident Animals. All birds of the crow tribe, rooks es pecially, exhibit a tendency toward winter—like squirrels and some other animals—to lay up a store of provisions for their sustenance against a season of scarcity. While jackdaws select holes of trees and old buildings to store away such provisions, rooks convey them away to their rookeries. There in last season's nests they deposit them. Toward springtime, when they begin thinking about setting their houses in order, they visit their rookeries and when rebuilding their nests throw out the unused store. Thus It is we often find an accumulation of acorns, pota toes and what not on the ground under their nests.—Nature Notes. 1 An Ancient Tnnnel. Tunnels are no new things in his tory. The only known inscription in early Hebrew records that the conduit which Conveys water from a spring to the pool of Slloam, on the west side of Jerusalem, was, like the Simplon tun nel, cut from both ends of the interven ing ridge. But the Hebrew workers miscalculated, and while there should have been still three cubits (about five feet) to excavate they heard the voices of the workers in the other tunnel, as there was a deviation of the lines, which should have joined.

It is a scientific fact that ail cases of heart disease, not organic, are not only traceable'to, but are the direct result of indi gestion. All food taken into the stomach which fails of perfect digestion ferments and swells the stomach, puffing it up against the heart. This interferes with the action of the heart, and in the course of time that delicate but vital organ becomes diseased. v. ..
