Keep Your Temper.
Which of all the domestic virtues Is
most essential to a happy married life?
The ability to keep one's temper, be
yond all question.
There Is nothing which lends more
to misery, not only for Its possessor.
but also for those about him, than an
ungovernable and unreasonable tem
per. No one Is worse to live with than
en ill tempered man. except perhaps
an ill tempered woman.
Bad tempered people completely spoil
the lives of those who associate with
them. The feeling of strain Is ever
present One never knows Just when
the storm will break, nltbougb appar
ently the weather, metaphorically, Is
"set fair." Life In these circumstances
Is a burden almost beyond bearing.
"Don't knock on the glass with your
hand you might hurt It. Use a sledge

the window are three or four ferrets,
trained to hunt rats. Before the shop
owner put the sign on the window tap
ping on the glass to arouse the ferrets
was one of the favorite sports of the
neighborhood. New York Tribune.

Concerning Two Sounds.
When Joseph Henry Lumpkin was
chief Justice of Georgia a case was
brought up from Columbus In which a
wealthy citizen asked for an injunc
tion to prevent tbe construction of a
planing mill across the street very near
bis palatial residence. His grounds for
complaint consisted chiefly in the propo
sition that the noise of tbe mill would
wake blm too early in tbe morning.
"Let the mill be built," said tbe chief
justice In rendering his decision. "Let
Its wheels be put in motion. The prog
ress of machinery must not be stopped
to suit tbe whims or tbe fears of any
man. Complainant's fears are imagi
nary. Tbe sound of tbe machinery will
not be a nuisance. On the contrary, It
will prove a lullaby. Indeed, I know
of but two sounds In all nature that a
man cannot become reconciled to, and
they are tbe braying of an ass and the
tongue of a scolding woman." Atlanta
How Attraction Acts.
Attraction acts very curiously. Thus
if there were a man In the moon and
if he were like tbe men on the earth
he would be able to leap over a three
storied bouse with as much easo as
an ordinary jumper springs over a
three foot fence. In consequence of tbe
forces of attraction being much less
at the moon's surface than at tbe
earth's. An elephant there would be
as light footed ns the deer here. A
boy throwing stones might easily land
tbem In an adjoining county. On the
other hand, tbe reverse of all this
would happen In Jupiter and Saturn.
Tbey being so much greater than the
earth, their attraction would so im
pede locomotion that a man would
scarcely be able to crawl, and large
animals would be crushed by their
own weight
"You are not very happy in this
bouse," friends remarked to tbe renter.
"No, 1 can't say we are."
"Your ceilings are falling."
"Tbey are. and that Isn't all. Our
roof leaks, our cellar fills wltb water
every time It ruins, our radiators
tbump, our furnace Is too small for tbe
bouse. Its appetite Is too large for our
Income, our gutters have rusted away,
tbe porcb sags, the house busn't had a
new coat or pulnt for beveu years, tbe
wull pupei bungs loose In every room,

Insurance From Italy.
Insurance came from medieval Italy.
It la believed to date from the six
teenth century, and at that time it was
known in Florence. Tbe Romans did
not know Insurance. Tbo nearest they
came to it was tbe practice of a com
pany supplying the army to require a
guarantee from tbe state against tbe
loss of ships. But this was soon aban
doned, because damages bad been col
lected for sunken ships too worthless
to float
An Odd Perquisite.
One of tbe most curious perquisites
In connection wltb English coronations
la the right of one of tbe peers to
claim the bed and bedding used by
tbe belr epparent on the nlgbt preced
ing tbe coronation. In olden times this
was a perquisite of considerable value,
as tbe "bedding" usually consisted of
richly embroidered coverlids of velvet
or silk, wltb priceless hangings of
cloth of sliver and gold.

Yet It Was a Dish For Which He
Had Yearned For Years.
Bouillabaisse as Sung by ThacUeray
and as Served In a Famous Mar
seilles Resort Proved ery Different
Propositions to an English Epicure.
We all know that famous poem of
Thackeray's which begins,
A street there Is In Paris famous
For which no rime our language yields,
and goes on to tell of tbe tavern where
the genial Titmarah in tbe days when
ho was a Paris correspondent "ate and
drank tbe bouillabaisse."
As a result of that delightful poem
tens of thousands of Englishmen have
yearned to eat bouillabaisse. Thacke
ray puts It so beautifully! Tbe steam
ing dish of stewed flsb that be con
jures up in his lines how appetizing It
beems! 1 know that It was quite early
In my teens when 1 first read that
poem, and from that moment there
was formed In my mind a firm resolve
to eat some day of bouillabaisse.
My opportunity came not long ago
when I visited Marseilles. It was
nearly half past 0 when 1 sat down in
tbe dining room of the hotel.
"There is no bouillabaisse on the
menu." 1 said severely to tbe maltre
d'hotel. "I have come to Marseilles
specially to eat It" He replied that it
was not a specialty of tbe bouse, but
that it could always be prepared. How
long would It take? Twenty-flve min
utes, perbups a little longer. "But I
think monsieur would find it rather
heavy at such a late hour."
He was not encouraging, this maltre
d'hotel. I did not accept for a moment
his suggestion that bouillabaisse was
too heavy a dish for half past 9 at
night Thackeray bad not talked about
heaviness. But twenty-five minutes!
I ordered an omelet
At midnight, walking down the fa
mous Canneblerc, back to the hotel, I
was balled by a familiar voice. It was
that of a friend whom 1 bad not seen
for n long time. Gratefully I grasped
his hand and 'told blm that I Intended
to eat bouillabaisse as soon as possible.
And my respect for him was consider
ably enhanced when he told me that be
had eaten some that very afternoon,
an hour after his arrival in Mar
seilles. Here was tbe true spirit and
I related to him, with some bitterness,
my experience with the maltre d'hotel.
"Well, it is rather heavy stuff," he
said. But I brushed this aside, and we
arranged to meet at lunch on the mor
row, when I should have the best that
Marseilles could give me.
There are, as everybody knows, two
places at Marseilles for bouillabaisse
Pascal's and Basso's, on the Vleux
Port We decided on Basso's.
"Bouillabaisse," I said laconically. I
paid no attention to what my friend
ordered. No other dish Interested me.
But In a minute or so a curious look
ing mess was set down before him.
"What's that stuff you're going to
eat?" I asked.
"That's bouillabaisse," he said, "but
It's not mine."
I started. This bouillabaisse, this cu
rious looking stuff, wltb indigestible
looking lumps of flsb floating In a bil
ious and oily saffron liquid! I know
not what I bad expected bouillabaisse
to be. but it certainly was not this.
There was a piece of flsh which I rec
ognized as eel, and I loathe eels. The
broad tall of another aud unknown
fish stuck up out of the opaque liquid.
But It was the yellow liquid Itself
which repelled. It shouted biliousness,
and tbe smell of saffron that arose wltb
the steam made me feel ill. Ob, Thack
eray! I pecked at the eel or It may have
been a lamprey explored the various
other flsh, tasted gingerly of tbe thick
saffron liquid on one or the pieces of
toast that floated In It But mlno was
no palate for bouillabaisse. I made
tbe waiter take the mess awav and
bring lamb cutlets.
But 1 bad tasted of bouillabaisse and
was nut to forget It All day long tbe
terrible taste of saffron remained with
me. Nothing would shift it; not Mar
seilles tea, nor many golden bocks, nor
dinner, in fact the bouillabaisse of
lunch spoiled the dinner. And at mid
night t'n a cafe on tbe Canneblere, my
friend confided a secret to me. "When
we fell In with each other Just twenty
four hours ago," be said, "I was suf
fering just as you are now. The hor
rible taste of saffron bad remained ob
stinately with me over since lunch and
has not quite gone even yet But you
told mo you had come to Marseilles to
eat bouillabaisse, and I knew nothing
I could Bay would dissuade you. But
no doubt the bitterness of this moment
will fade away, und us time passes you
will tell your friends in England how
excellent is tbe real bouillabaisse if
only you have It In Marseilles."
"Never! I would die' tirbt!" 1 ex
claimed firmly. London Standard.
