"My own knowledge," said Mr. Rog its to .1 reporter, "shone out by con trast with the ignorance of the other aide. The opposing lawyer, in his be nighted cross-examination of me, really made me think of the Cleveland huck ster. ■This huckster was giving evidence in a damage suit against an automo bilist. " 'The auto," be said, confidently, 'was going over a hundred miles an hour.' " 'But that's nearly two miles a min ute,' said the judge. " 'No, your honor,' the huckster con tradicted. " 'Look here, my man, you know how many minutes there are in an hour, don't you?' "The huckster hesitated, then said frankly: " 'Well, yi-i- honor, I ain't had much education let's have your reckbnln' of it.' " THE DOMINANT NOTE "The late John <;. Carlisle," said a member of the Manhattan club, "was very fond of music, and it annoyed him Inexpressibly at the opera to see the inattention of the fashionable part of the audience. "One night i found him supping here, and asked him where he'd been. " 'I've been to the opera,' he replied. " What did you hear." said I. " 'i heard,' said Mr. Carlisle, 'that the Van Vans are going to get a divorce, young Knickerbocker-Smith has mar ried a London barmaid and Mis, J. W. Hardup-Hardup Is gradually pawning all her jewels.' " A GOOD JOB Jacob H. Schlff, at a dinner on the yacht Kamona, condemned a concern that had gone up. "Straight business methods are the only ones," he said. "There is a moral In the receiver story. "A man you know said one day to a little doy: " 'Well, Tommy, what are you going to be when you grow up?" " 'A receiver, sir,' Tommy answered promptly. 'Ever since pa's been a re ceiver we've had champagne for dinner and two automobiles." " WAKING THEM UP "Gordon Selfridge," said a Chicagoan on the Cunard pier In New York, "is running the biggest and best depart ment store In London. It's a stately building of gray stone in Oxford street. Selfridge, with his liberal American methods, has made the English sit up. "He told me the other day that too many English shopkeepers pursued the short-sighted and niggardly policy of a certain baker In Bloomsbury. "A customer complained to the baker about a currant bun. " 'My bun this morning,' he said, 'contained several flies. I'd like you to give me another for it, please.' " 'Oh, no,' said the baker, 'I can't OCTOBER 16, 1910. give you another bun. That would lit 1 unfair to my business.. Hut I'll tell you what I will do—for each fly you found I'll gladly give you another currant.'
