r.VGE FIVE. GILL1LAN TELLS OF HIS SUCCESS former Richmond Newspaper Man Now on Lecture Plat form as Head Liner. 11 FROSTS NOW AND THEN. WITH SUCCESS THERE IS AL WAYS A LITTLE DISCOURAGE MENT "SAME OLD STRICK," FRIENDS TERM HIM. Ode to a Teddy Bear. "The shades of niht w re falling fast VheU through it New England ilia;re passed A creature covered o'er will) fur And all its little im-ides were Exccb ior.'' "Thiit's Rob HurdMte's late.-t poct leal effusion,'' .-tateil Strickland V. Clillilaii, a former Rienmond newspa per liian. ;uni now one of the bi-M. l.nown humorists anil lecturers in I country. ":;rrii-K." a.-, he is still fa miliarly culled by his many loeal friends, sat in the office of County Auditor Cue, his old .-hi" partner, this morning and made Hi" side:; of ;i smail audience ache hy his merry tales and quietly related experiences. After he had left to catch an ea.-.t bound train, one of his old friends remarked, " lie's jtnt the same old St rick. liven pros perity can't chuiiL'e him." Mr. (lillilan is still on the platform Mid a "head-liner" wherever lie ap pears. He is also under contract to vrite for the Chicago Daily .Sews and the Success mae.a.iuc. Ten cents a word is all thai he noives from Sue cess. "Since 1 made my contract viilt Success the editor lias had to hire tin additional office boy to han dle the 'copy' 1 ship into him." he Mates. "I :f't the md hand at most places I appear as a lecturer, but once in a while -I tun tip inrttinst :t frost." Uil lilao stated and then ar.ked a local IifiwHpaner man if he reinemherei a: -'.endlnn one of his lectures given in a .small town in northern Michigan. The newspaper man rememhered the inci dent distinctly- he acted as cheer leader, self-appointed, and had very poor support. "That audience was positively the worst I ever went up aKflin.-t." said "Sfrici; ' reflectively. "They made about as much noise its mjiiio one pounding a fur hat with a lamb's' tail. My friend here was the only. one who got boisterous and I had fo r(hiind hint that unless he cut out the racket he would rpteer himself with the community." AQUATIC PLANTS How Thf7 Mar Be Sncofint nlly Cnltl vntvd In Tuba. Tlur cultivation of aquatic; plants in tubs makes it possible for any one to trj- his skill with them. Of course he peed not expect to bo able to grow the rarer sorts of uyinphnea, but lq? can succeed with many beautiful varieties of water lily and other plants of that class. A half barrel is not very at tractive in itself, but Its lack of beauty may be concealed by the plants, or it may be sunk its depth in the earth. Yhen it contains a tine specimen of some aquatic plant we will forget all about Its lack of grace. When prepar ing for these plants put in rich black mud from the bed of streams or muck from swamps, to the depth of a foot; then plant your roots in it and fill with water. Add enough water from time to time to make up for that which is lost by evaporation and give the tub a sunny place in the yard or garden. If you want to grow more plants than one tub will accommodate, it is a good plan to take four, five, sis, or as many ns you may decide on, and have them sunk in the ground close together, so that the general effect will be some thing like that which a large tank would give. A better plan, though a more expensive one to carry out, is to have a tank constructed of heavy planks. These should be securely bolt ed at the ends and the joints made tight by white lead in the grooves. Ironuiongrr. The word "ironmonger"' has as curi ous an origin as any other word in the English language. It means literally an eater of iron and came to its present use in this way. There was once a law that forbade buying fish to sell again, and the fish hawkers, who ptill carried on their trade In spite of this law, were facetiously termed fish eaters or fish mongers, for, to evade the law, their large purchases of fish were said to be for their own eonsumptiou. Gradually the term monger was applied to other trades, as cheesemonger, nutil at hit jt camo to mean any middle man, a distinguished from a manufacturer, and so was applied to the dealer in hard ware. London Graphic. Wfcy He. Waa K looted. A manufacturer in the north of Eng land expected, to be beaten at the polls by his own employees, with whom lie was extremely unpopular. To his surprise- he was returned. His puzzled agent sought for an explanation. "How is it," he asked o-;.- of the workmen, "you voted for your i ;iter when you nil hve sueh a bn-1 opinion of hirn?"

A Klinf Duel. At some amateur theatricals in Vic toria two people in the stalls, whenever the heorine was kiss.i, kissed each oth er loudly :iud with ostentation. It turn ed out that the man in the audience was the husband of the heroine, who disapproved of her theatrical tastes and. with the help of an amiable friend, took this way of reproving tlieui.

Two ceremonies in Burma mark when childhood stops and manhood or wom anhood begins. The boys have their thighs tattooed and the girls their ears bored. The boring of a girl's ears is commenced with a needle, and the puncture is gradually increased until the tip of the finger can be introduced. The enlarging process is the one car ried out in the Polynesian Islands, where a native can carry a good sized knife hanging in the lobe of his ear. The ugliest mutilation is that of the Eskimo, who punches a hole in his cheek end puts a bone stud into it. The Burmese boy suffers grent pain from the elaborate ornamentation of his legs, which are decorated In blue and red patterns. Orpran Clrl intern In England. By turning the handle of an organ the Italian in England obtains nearly eight times as much per week as be can earn in Italy, more than four times as much as the English farm laborer and nearly three times the pay of the policeman who moves him on when requested. Thousands of skilled ar tisans who have serve! apprenticeship as carpenters, painters and joiners got only half the organ grinder's pay. for the Italian reckons It a very poor week indeed if he maks less than $15, and he often gets f 17 ."0 to or more.
