There Waa No Other Courst.
? The New England boiled dlnner and
other dishee like pork and beans, boll
ed codfish and pumpkin pie best ap
pealed to the appetite of Chief Justice
Melvllle W. Fuller. It was said in
.Washington that the Fuller Saturday
night dlnner was baked beans and
nothlng else, and this story Ls told:
"One evening thc chief Justice, pos
BlbJy forgettlng that lt was Saturday,
asked a dlstinguished English jurist
home to dlnner with him. When the
beans came on the Euglishinan
promptly declined them. Mrs. Fuller
showed some embarrassment, where
upon the Engllshman amlably said:
?Never mind. I'U make it up ln the
next course.' 'But, good Lord," ex
clalmed the chief justice, 'there lsn't
any otber course:' And there wasn't.
In addltlon to being a very small
cater the chief Justice was a moderato
Btnoker of modestly priced cigars. Ho
was said to smoke the same kind of
cigars, as far as they were obtainable,
that he smoked when he was strug
gling hard to establish a living law
business ln Chicago in the old days.
He said he was attached to these
cbeap cigars by tles of sentiment and
tender recollection and that nothing
else would taste so good to him.?

"Pins and Needles."
After being for n long time ln a con
atralned attltude n peculiar numbnesa
and pricking are often felt ln the arm,
leg or foot. This is caused by some
lnterruptlon to the cii-culatlon nnd can
nsually be removed by rubbing or ex
ercise. The reason of thc sensatlon,
which ls decidedly uncomfortable
wbilo it lasts, ls that pressure for a
certaln length of time deadens the
aenslbillty of n nerre. When thia
pressure ls suddenly removed, as
straightening out the leg after sltting
with it doubled underneath the body,
senslbillty gradually returns to the
nerve. and as each nerve flber com
posing the trunk rcgalns its normal
condition of senslbillty a pricking sen?
satlon is felt, and these successive
priekings from the successive awakcn
ings of the numerous fibers have not
Inaptly been called "pins and needles."
Tha Prayer That Hurt.
A member of a certain Massachu
setts parlsh prominent for his thrlft
and personal consequence wns also
notorious for his ovcrbearing assump
tions and pompous alrs. Under the
dlstress and fright of a dangerous 111
-ness he "put up notes" on several suc?
cessive Sundays, aud after his recovery,
according to usage, he offered n note
to be read by the minister expresslvo
of his thanks. The minister was some
what 'large" ln this part of his pra/
er, recalllng the danger and the pre
vious petitlons of the "squlre" and re?
turnlng his grateful acknowledgments
with the prayer that tho experlence
might be blesscd to the splritual wcl
fare of the restored man. He closed
with these words:
"And we pray. O Lord, that thy
servant may bo cured of that ungodly
8trut, so otTenslve in the sanctuary."
Law and Geography.
From tbe half timers' papers wrltten
at a recent term examination: "Some
of the chief inventlons of the last 150
years are having an act so that no per
son under fourteeu years must go Into
the public house. Another act was so
that no person uuder the age of slx
teen years must smoke cigars, plpes
and clgarettes, and no person under
that age can bo served with auy. My
brother Blll is now all right for this
invention. He was sixteeu last week."
Here ls a geography answer: "The riv?
er system of Canada is what you
might call very good, but sometlmes
they shoot the raplds, and unless you
are a red Indian this* is very trouble
some at times, especially wben you get
sucked under like Captain Webb."?

The Earliest Cigars.
The earliest mention of cigars in
English occurs ln a book dated 1735.
A traveler ln Spanish Amerlca named
Cockburn, whose narrative was pub
lished in tbat year, describes how he
met three frlars at Nlcaragua, who, he
says, "gave us some seegars to smoke;
these are Leaves of Tobacco rolled up
ln such Manner that they serve both
for a Pipe and Tobacco itself; they
know no other way here, for there la
no such Thing as a Tobacco Pipe
throughout New Spain."

"What ls the sign when a man parta

Fresh Air in Winter
In winter, it is hard to get fresh air
in certain rooms. Some rooms in a
house are usualiy colder than others,
and if you open the windows It Is
hard again to heat the room properly.
If you keep the windows closed
you don't get fresh air; if you keep
them open you cannot quickly reheat
the room. The
_ML HtAfM!
Absolattty mokelas and odorlets
solves the difficulty. You can ieave
the windows in a room open ail day
in winter, and when you close them
.apply a match to a Perfection Oil
Heater and heat the room to any tem?
perature you desire in a few minutes.
Tbe Perfection Oil Heater is finished ln japan or nickel. It burne for
nine hours. It has a cool handle and a damper top. It haa an auiomotic
locklna name sprcadcr. which prevents the wlck from boing turned high
enoilgnto smoke, and Is easy to remove and drop back ao that the wick can be
quickly cleaned. An Indlcator always shows amount of oil in the font
The flller-cap does not necd to be screwed down. It la put ln like a cork
ln a bottle, and ls attached to the font by a chain.
The burner body or gallcrv cannot become wedged, because of a now
deviceinconstruction. and ccnacquentlv, ll can alwaya be ea,ily un.crewed ln
m Instant for rewickfng. The Perfection Oil Heater is strong, durable, vell
tnade, built for service, yet light and ornamental.

Tho French academy was origlnally
a Junctlon of the driiwiDg rooms ofthe
Marqulse de Ramboulllet and her
daughter, Julio d'Angenues, Duchesse
de Montnusier. The salon as a rneot
ing plnce for convorsatlon and thepro
dnction of beaux cspiitB and wrlters
hardly existed before these ladies
opened that of the Hotel de Ramboull?
let Prior to this soclal event women
of tintop quality and rich bourgeolses
received their company in their bed
rooms. There was nothing answerlng
to the FnglLsh parlor or the Italian
hall of convorsatlon. The bed, as ln
the sleeping room of Louis XlV., was
snrrounded by a balustrade, outside of
which gentlemen who had dropped in
to visit remalned standing. It would
have been shockingly unmannerly of
them to step over the barrier. The

The most strlklng iustance of a van

take part In legal proceedlngs ls that
which oceurred in a case where Dan
lel O'Connell was defending a man ln
dicted for murder. The case for the
prosecution seemed as clear as pos
slble, and O'Counell contented himself
with fewer questions than were te
have been expected of so emlnent a
ezaa_?f. When tlie case for tho
crown li.id closcd he announced thnt
he had but one witness to call, but
thnt witness was Iraportant to the
case. He was the murdered man, very
much alive. There waa no doubtlng
the man's Identlty-everybody knew
It. The Judge therefore turned to the
Jury and directed them to acqult the
prl?oner. To his amazement, however,
they returned a verdict of guilty.
Asked for an explanatlon, the foreman
observed that they had no doubt that
the prlsoner was innocent of the mur?
der. "But," he added, "we flnd him
guilty of sthealing my ould gray mare
