In casting up the score against street musicians it must never be forgotten that to them was due the untimely death of one of England's foremost hu morists, John Leech. The strain of ceaseless application to bis work ren dered Leech abnormally sensitive to atreet noises of nil descriptions, and street music iu particular drove him frantic. The organ grinders, it is said, knew of bis enmity toward them and played within earshot of his studio sim ply to plague him. in a letter to Mr. Bass. M. P.. wno was framing a bill for the suppression of street noises. Mark Lemon, the editor of Punch, de clared that beyond a doubt Leech's ul timately fatal malady, angina pectoris, or breast pang, was due to the dis turbance of his nervous system caused by tbe continual visits of street bands and organ grinders.—London Chronicle. The Senator's Sarcasm. For many years there served in tbe United States senate a man of brilliant mind and many tine qualities, but who was forever estranging many with Whom be desired to be friendly by reason of bis incurably sarcastic man ner both of speech and action. Once an Intimate friend wrote the senator urging the appointment of another friend to a minor position in the gov ernment. The senator returned a most sarcastic reply, declining to rec-oui mend tbe appointment, it is said that be never forgot the merited rebuke he received from the friend who had sug gested the appoiutiuent: My Dear Senator—I think it would be well for you to reserve your sarc&sm for the rapidly inereasiriK number of your en emies. Instead or offering It to the de creasing numoer of your friends, of whom I am one. Navajo Blankets. Much unadulterated uonsense has been written concerning the symbolism or Navajo Indian blankets and the poetry, legend, tradition and history woven by the squaw into Its fabric. It Is ime that some designs have a symbolic meaning, but Hopi. Zuni and Apache symbols are used quite as free ly as those peculiar to tbe Navajos. The Navajo squaw is one of tbe least imaginative and least poetical of hu man beings, and it is quite safe to say that even when sympolic designs are employed In blanket weaving It is without tbe remotest reference to their true significance.—Arconaut. The Lotus Flower. Poets and novelists alike have given mythical texture and color to the lotus. The elder Dumas spoke of a lotus flow er "pure white and with petals as deli cate as fine muslin." Nor did the an cients treat the matter with more truth. Herodotus spoke of the lotus as of a plant which habitually de scended below the surface of the wa ter at suus«t t•• return to view only with the reap] .usee of the sun. The lotus known io modern man goes be low the surface of the water, like all nympbaeas. when its beauty and its freshness have passed and when the time has come to ripen its seed pod. Then by the law of life it closes its corolla and goes away from the air and the sunshine down into the water to prepare for the future of its family. It goes at the time when the sun sets. but it does not reappear. When it goes down as an Individual it is gone forever. The petals described by Du mas as being "as white as the snows of Himalaya" are not pure white, nor can anything be called with justice "as white as the lotus flower," be cause a lotus flower may be red or blue as well as white.—Harper's. A Porterhouse Steak. According to the Encyclopaedia Bri tannlca, the word "steak" Is apparently derived from Icelandic "stelk," used iu the same sense as the English word, "which meant properly roasted meat, from steikja, to roast—that Is, placed on a stick or peg of wood before .the fire (compare Swedish, stek Danish, stek, roast meat)." Tbe same authority says: "A 'por terhouse* steak Is a choice cut of steak from tbe loin, so named, apparently, first In New York from a well known 'porter house' and eating bouse where chops, steaks, etc., and porter or stout were served, at which these steaks were a specialty. "A steak grilled between two other steaks, which are not served after the cooking is finished. Is also sometimes called a 'porterhouse' steak." Not In these days of hlgb cost meat would such a practice as tbe latter be very generally followed, however.—Na tional Provisioner. Lord Brougham's Dream. Lord Brougham was one of tbe most stubborn believers in the "common sense" explanation of ghostly appear ances as dreams. At Edinburgh uni versity he and an intimate friend drew op an agreement written with their blood that whichever of them died first should appear to the survivor. Tears passed, tbe friend was in India, and Brougham bad almost forgotten his existence. Arriving late one night at an Inn In Sweden, Brougham bad a hot bath, and was going to get out of it when he looked toward the chair on which he bad left bis clothes and saw his friend sitting on it. Brougham seems then to have fainted. On get ting borne he received a letter an nouncing that the other had died in India at tbe very time. Yet this Inci dent, which most people would put down to telepathy, at least, was dis missed by Brougham as a mere dream and pure coincidence. A Rogue Elephant. In "Big Game Shooting In Upper Burma" Major Evans tells of a fa mous rogue elephant that bad for some time terrorized tbe jungle and that bad finally been laid low by a bullet from the major's rifle. The author says: He measured nine feet seven inches at tbe shoulders and had but one tusk. That, however, was a beauty and weighed close to forty pounds. The other tusk had been broken off at the root, probably in a fight I took a bunch of maggots as big as a football out of tbe broken tusk. Tbe poor beast must have endured agonies similar to a toothache. No wonder that be had turned rogue! I believe that nearly every rogue elephant is suffering from some physical hurt or disease that causes him constant pain and turns him from an Inoffensive beast Into a savage man hunter." Wasted Wit. "Crude country, America," the visit ing Englishman condescended to say. "As how?" we ventured to ask. "I see by this mawning's paper that a man was held up and robbed heah yestebday In broad daylight. Such things nevab could happen in London." "No, of course not. You never have any broad daylight in London." We thought we bad made quite a hit with this bonmot, but the Briton said: "Oh, hang it, you miss the point, y* knaow!"—Cleveland Plain Dealer. Heard In the Lobby. "1 am very much interested In the passing show," said Mr. Pinchpenny Insinuatingly. "Well," replied tbe man in tbe box office, "this isn't any passing show. This is a pay as you enter show."— Exchange. A Perfect Likeness. Mrs. 8—Oh. what a beautiful face! Wbo Is it? Painter—That, madam, is your daughter. Mrs. S.—What a per fect likeness!

After ten days we were able to find our way around Boston, but not across it. If you start to walk out in Boston you always come back to the place from which you started unless you try to then it is almost impossible. The transportation is fine, after you have committed it to memory. The hospitality of Boston we shall always remember, but not its street car direc tions. A Boston street car acts like a broncho. You never know whether it is going through the air like a bird, un der the ground like a mole or beneath the bay like a fish. The motorman seems to make up his mind as be goes along. The Boston language is sibilant and stylish. The Boston people love the soft boiled "r." Out west folks pro nounce "r" a good deal like a dog chewing a bone. In Boston they deal as gently with it as they can, as if it were not to blame for being in the language, although it doesn't belong there.—Horseshoers' Journal. The Old Oaken Bucket's Gone. One day's excursion out of Boston is southward through the birthplace and ancestral home of the brilliant essay ist Quincy to the boyhood haunts of Wooclworth and the scenes which in spired his sweetest lyric. In Scituate. by the village of Greenbush, we find the well of "The Old Oaken Bucket" remaining at the site of the dwelling where the poet was born and reared. Most of the "loved scenes" of his child hood—the wide spreading pond, the venerable orchard, the flower decked meadow, the deep tangled wildwood— may still be seen, little changed since he knew them, but the rock of the cataract has been removed and the cascade itself somewhat altered by the widening of the highway the "cot of his fathers" has given place to a mod ern farmhouse, and the "moss cov ered bucket that hung in the well" has been supplanted by a convenient but nnpoetical pump.—Theodore E. Wells, "Literary Shrines." A Poor Robin Almanac One of the scarcest and most amus ing of the early English almanacs is entitled "Poor Kobin, an Almanack of the Old and New Fashion con taining a twofold Kalendar—viz. the Julian. English or Old Account, and the Roundheads. Fanatics, paper-scull'd or Maggotheaded New Account," etc. It is a pamphlet of sixteen pages and is dated London. 1600. The dedication is "to the world" and in it Poor Robin says: "With Pipers, Ballad-singers and Fiddlers it is a mer ry World: with Prisoners, Sick-people and Money-less persons it is a sad World with a Soldier it Is a bard World with a Divine a wicked World with a Lawyer a contentious World: with a Courtier a slippery World with most men a mad World, and with all men a bad World." Some of tbe ear lier of these "Poor Robin Almanacks" have been attributed to Robert Her rlck. 8he Learned the Lesson. A Baltimore lawyer had an office boy wbo was given to telling in other of fices what happened In tbat of his chief. The lawyer found it necessary to discharge him, but, thinking to keep him from a similar fault in tbe future, he counseled the boy wisely on his departure. "Willie, you must never hear any thing that is snid in the office," he said. "Do what you are told to do, but turn a deaf ear to conversation that does not Include you." A happy inspiration! He would see that the stenographer learned the same lesson in passing, so, turning to her. he said: "Miss Brown, did you bear what I said to Willie?" "No. sir," she returned promptly.— Lippincott's. Long Sessions In the Commons. A recent nineteen hours' sitting of the house of commons created a sensa tion. But it is almost a trifle com pared with what happened in tbe spa cious days before the closure was in troduced. There was the Irish "night" of July 31 and Aug. 1, 1877, when the chaplain, arriving to read prayers at noon for the Wednesday sitting, found the Tuesday sitting still in progress "Ah." said Erskine May to him, "we are past praying for." But the record was achieved by the forty-one hours' sitting of Jan. 01 to Feb. 2, 1S81. Uses of Time. "I saved ten minutes a day at lunch for twenty years." "What of it?" "Oh, It was well that I saved all this time, for now I spend two hours daily in the anteroom of a dyspepsia special ist."—Seattle Post-Intelligencer. Striving Vainly to Please. "I suppose those garden seeds I sent saved you quite a little money," said the affable statesman. "No," replied Mr. Growcher "1 hadn't the heart to waste 'em, and the result is that I'm in debt for garden implements."—Washington Star. Afraid. "Yes. I proposed, but she said I'd have to ask her mother first." "And did you?" "No 1 was afraid the mother might accept me."—Judge. He Kept Quiet. Householder Here, drop that coat and clear out!

The Ram Was a Fighter, Though, and Furnished a Surprise. Nature has made the tiger unequaled In the combination of speed, strength, cunning, daring and physical beauty. A tiger's first bounds are so rapid as to bring It alongside an antelope, and a blow of Its paw will stun a charging bull. It bas been known to spring over a wall five feet high into a cattle pen and to jump back with a full grown animal In its jaws. Sportsmen say they have known it to carry away the bait while they were putting up tbe shelters from which to shoot it. It Is a fact, however, that the tiger makes no pretense to invincible cour age, as may be seen In the Instance of one kept in the Calcutta zoological gardens, which was butted to death by a ram. A soldier owned a fighting ram, which became so troublesome it had to be sent to the zoo. There It caused so much annoyance it was de cided to give it to tbe great tiger. Tbe tiger was so ferocious its food was let down through a sliding grat ing In tbe roof of its cage. The ram was lowered down. The tiger, dozing In one corner, saw the ram descend and, rising, began to stretch itself. The ram. not knowing he was intended to be food for the big beast, supposed the stretching was the signal for a fight. Stepping nimbly back to the farthest corner of the cage, it put down Its head and went st-aight at the tiger and In a few minutes butted it to death.—New York Press. A Little Something For the Waiter. "The biggest tip I ever saw given a waiter in my life was bestowed by the late John W. Gates in Paris." said a man who is accustomed to be generous in that line himself. "Gates enter tained a party of about a dozen of us at dinner at the Ritz hotel and had the little private dining room on the right as you go toward the restaurant Before the meal was finished Gates called for Olivier, the head waiter. John never did succeed in getting that man's name right. "'Oliver.' he said, -here's a little something for you.' and he handed him a 1,000 franc note ($200). I told Gates he was foolish and that he was spoil lng things for the rest of us. but he I guessed he knew what he wa» doing." —New York Sun. The Duke's Advice. Tbe great Duke of Wellington had an onfortunate experience at Oxford. He pronounced Jacobus with the second syllable "short" and was duly ad monished. Shortly after the word Carolus came in his speech, and. profit bag, as he thought, by experience, he made the second syllable long, only to be pulled up again. Possibly he re fleeted that there are worse terrors than those of tbe battlefield. This, at least, was his advice to an aspiring orator: "Say what you have to say, ilon't quou- I.atir and sit down."—Pali Mall Gazerte. Practical Advice. "Npeakii'g etiipierte. did Tnu send the dollar for those advertised instrnc tions mi What to do at table?' "Yes." "And what did you get?" "A slip with one word printed on It. •Eat!'"

Gluck, the composer, was not of tbe sort of men of whom courtiers are made. Onq day he attended at the court at Vienna a concert at which the Emperor Joseph 11. and one of his archdukes sung a fragment from one of Gluck's compositions. Naturally enough, the imperial artists glanced at the composer to see how he was im pressed by the honor they were doing him. They were shocked to observe that he was making a series of ex traordinary and significant grimaces. The emperor stopped and inquired whether he and the archduke were not singing the bit according to Gluck's idea of how it should be done. "My idea!" exclaimed Gluck. "Why, sire, I am the poorest walker in the world, but I would vastly rather take a walk of six leagues than be forced to hear a composition of my own inter preted in such a way as that." Joseph II. was brave enough to take uo notice of the criticism, but the court was quite convinced that if nuch a reproach had been addressed to the Czar Nicholas the composer would have prosecuted his musical studies from that time forth under the unfa vorable surroundings of the Siberian luiues. It was the composer Weigl, a man of very different temperament from Gluck. who when the Emperor Fran cis Joseph played the first violin in the performance of one of his overtures threw himself at the monarch's feet and exclaimed, "Ah, sire, will your majesty beniguantly condescend to grant my prayer and favor me once more with a most gracious sharp?"— New York Press. 2o Vou Kjnotv?
