Vlndmg g postage) ' " Payable Invariably in Advance BANCROFT, THE HISTORIAN. A Pen ricture of the Venerable Writer An Active Old Man. ' Washington Cor. New York World. Bancroft, the historian, is one of the most noticeable figures in Washington society. The remarkable preservation of his vigor at the advanced age of 84 years, Is what makes him the most interesting. He is not the most charming conversationalist in the world. He fairly roars as he talks. He ap pears always as if he were addressing some one a dozen yards away. He shouts several sentences at a friend in this high key and then without waiting or listening to anyone else he moves to address someone else. He alls as much as the most active society young man. He darts in and out of the leading houses of the town with a light skip that is almost offensive in its exuberant agility. This veteran still has a slim, erect figure. His legs are straight. There is no weakness there. He holds himself together with all that goes to make a good military set-up. He is especially agile in the pres-; ence of ladies, and under the inspiring glance of a lovely society bud, the veteran curvets, shies and skips with the lightsome grace of some of the thoroughbreds he has been so fond of riding in the past. This is a picture of him as I saw him the other day: He sat in a low, easy pony phaeton drawn by a stout black horse, wear ing a plain, unornamented harness. Just back of him in the rumble sat his favorate colored groom, who held the reins over the historian's left shoulder. The old man wore a dark-blue untrimmed Prussian officer's cap pulled well down mpon his gleaming eyes, looking out through a huge pair of round, heavily gold-mounted glasses resting upon a real hawk nose. A snowy -white, silky mustache and beard brought out his fresh color, and stood out in strong contrast with the dull black of his heavy pilot-cloth overcoat, while about his legs was an afghan of red, black, and yellow worsteds. It was a warm, sunny day. His horse jogged along with a steady gait, while the veteran roared a soliloquy at his servant about his calling places. . The man leaned forward deferent ially and superintended the calling list. tVhen he said stop the veteran would throw Side his afghan and skip up the steps, seem ing to restrain himself by an effort from turning handsprings on his way. Mr. Bancroft lives a very regular life, and as he has always taken a great deal of out door exercise, it is not hard to account for his long life. He has never burdened him self with work. He has been all his long life writing a history that could have been written in ten years with moderate labor. One page of manuscript a day of 250 words he regards as a good day's work. Mr. Blaine, his fellow-historian, a man in the full vigor of his life, regards 1.000 words a day as all any man can I e espjctcd to do well for a period of protracted work. Think of this, oh I merciless editors, w'.io crack the whip over newspaper reporter-! A New Kind of Hog. Detroit Free Press. A wild looking man who resembled one who had wrestled with misfortune in a catch-as-catch-can hold and been thrown in the contest, went into a Woodward avenue bird store the other day and approached the affa ble proprietor. "Look here," he said, "may I take you apart for a moment P "Certainly," replied the man of animals, "if you can put me together again."" "Well, here's a letter from my wife say, me out and have something?" They went and ha I something; when they came back the wild-looking man resumed the letter. "She writes mo." he continued, "to get her a white canvas-back dog in cross " "Now you go," said the man severely. "Business is business, and I've no time to fool away." He sat down on the curbstone to rest. He was still reading the letter when a sympa thetic lady stopped to look at him "Poor man, are you ill T she asked kindly. "Heaven bless you, madam, read that letter. If you can and will, I am a saved man." The lady took the letter as if she were humoring the whim of a lunatic, and ran it over. "It is easy enough to read," she said. "Your wife, who seems to be an excellent woman, wishes you to buy her a white dog in cross-stitch, stamped on a canvas splasher, with crewels to finish it and send by express at once. Tm sure there's nothing about it that isn't plain enough." "Thank you, ma'am. I'll never forget your kindness. Where did you say the cross stitched dog on canvass could be found V "At any art-embroidery store," and the lady walked away, remarking sotto voce: "Of all" stupids, men are the stupidest. Not to know what cross-stitch is!" The SplFt XftnK-Sote fraud. Chicago Herald. The latest swindle relating to spurious money is the split bank-note fraud. A $20 bank note is taken, and by some in genious method the note is split in two, and the raw side is " doctored up, " and each half is passed oft as a genuine $ i0 note. The work is done so artistically in most cases that it is difficult at first to ROYAL INSURANCE C WY OF LIVERPOOL. CAPITAL SIO.OGO.OOO UNLIMITED LIABILITY.
