Public Amusements Take Men’s Mind From Perils. “In this yellow fever scare,** raid a New Orleans man, “our people could n't do better than to take a pattern from the Emperor of Chlnu." “The Emperor of China?" “Yes. For that man. when an epidemic appears in any providence of his kingdom, makes all the theatres of the province free, and requires the inhabitants under pain of death, to go to some place of amusement at least once a day. “Furthermore, he gives free exhibit ions of fireworks every evening, and at these exhibitions attendance Is com pulsory. “What is the result? From early morning till late at night the people, streaming in and out of the free shows, or blinking and grasping under the fireworks’ splendor, have minds occupied and tranquil don’t worry over the epidemic that is scourging them — and hence keep almost inmune. “Oor people, in the face of a great contagion, ought to be made to keep continuously amused, like the Chinese. Then through weakness brought on fcy worry they wouldn’t lay them selves open to the disease, and through fear they wouldn’t fall to fighting and rioting over questions of quarantine.’’ PROVED TRUTH OF OLD ADAGE. Thirteen at Table Certainly Proved Unlucky for Some. “Ever sat down thirteen to table?” inquired the man with the salmon-pink tie. “Once,” said the man with the white mustache. “Well, you never observed any bad luck follow it, did you?” “I’ll bet he did,” growled the man who believes in these things. “Well.” said the white mustache, “it t was a trifle unlucky for most of ’em.” “Any of 'em die?” asked the man who believed. “Not enough grub to go round?” sneerjed the salmon-pink tie. “There were no victuals,” said the white mustache softly. “It took place in a lawyer’s office; it was a meeting of creditors; there were twelve be sides myself sat down to table.” There was a long pause, and then the salmon-pink tie spoke again. “In what vuy did the meeting prove unlucky, may I ask?” “Poor creatures,” sighed the white mustache, “they never got a penny out of me. I was the bankrupt.”—London Answers. Breaking it Gently. In a certain Danish province noted for its superior breed of cattle, the country people are not only very thrif ty, but exceedingly fond of their cows, aa may be gathered from the following, characteristic story which has recent ly been told: Farmer Jan was walking sadly down the road one day, when the village pastor met him. “Why so sad, Farmer Jan?” said the pastor. “Ah! I have a very sad errand, pas tor.” replied Jan. “What is it?” “Farmer Hehrik’s cow is dead in my pasture, and I am cn my way to tell him.” “A hard task. Jan.” “Indeed it is pastor, but I shall break it to him gently.” “How will you do that?” “I shall tell him first that it Is his mother that is dead, and then, having j opened the way for the telling of sad- l der news. I shall say to him that it is not his mother, but the cow!” P'ans to Get Rich are often frustrated by sudden break down, due to dyspepsia or constipation. Brace up and take Dr. King’s New Life Pills.

Hugging B«ar Evidently Did Net Knew the Summer Girl. The greet performing Russian bear had escaped from the captivity under which he had chafed for so many months; but he was finding that liber ty had its drawbacks. For many weary hours he had prowled, but noth ing in the shape of food had he seen. Suddenly he gave a growl of delight, for. sitting on a stile.he espied a tooth some little lady, who was evidently awaiting the coming of a young man. Bruin did not stop to ponder upon his good-fortune; he Eeized her in a mighty hug. For a while she said nothing; but as he exerted more of his tremendous strength she murmured: "I don’t think you are quite so strong as you were, Gerald.” Then once more melancholy settled upon Bruin. He had done his best; but the young ladles of this country were beyond him. With a roar of despair he retraced his steps to the menagerie, and gave himself up without a struggle.—Lon don Answers. Both Had Forethought. tfom his first European trip, which he called a “tower," the late unique Tekas congressman known in Washington as “Howdy Martin,” told of a French butcher who was apparently on his deathbed.

H.. who served many terms as sher iff of the county, had a habit of u§ing the words “By the way” before ad dressing a person or commencing a conversation. One morning in the sixties, in open ing a session of the court, the sheriff arose from his seat and in his usual, dignified manner proceeded according to the custom by repeating the follow ing. “Hear. ye. Hear, ye. All ye who have anything to do with the court of common pleas, come forward and you ahull be heard according to law.” At this point he sat down and re mained seated for nearly a minute then suddenly springing to his fee' and looking fixedly at the judge, h exclaimed: “By tho way, Qod save the state.’’ Joke on Booker T.

Cook Lady Only Obeyed Orders of the Mistreat. "Speaking of the Yital question of the hour, the servant,” said Mrs. Young Matron. “I engaged a cook lady last week who came well recommend ed.

Justin McCarthy, whose own activi ties as a writer have extended over more than half a century, does not agree with the despondent note often heard in the discussion of English lit erature. “It is true,” he says, “that we have not the old glauts with us. We have much line talent, but not. perhaps, much real genius. It is the quiet sea after the billows. What I mean is that in literary history you have times of great mluds and then again times of merely gifted minds. The present time Is one of high aver age talent rather than one of genius. The average quality of English litera ture has never, perhaps, been higher, nnd then people are reading more. When the next flight of great geniuses comes along there will be a public pitch as even Thackeray or Dickons did not have.” » ifHallnda and tha Cardinal. One of the after-dinner stories float ing about the Hamptons, a| ropos of Cardinal Gibbons’ visit, relates to a colored girl who once had a place in the cardinal’s household In Baltimore.

Sir Edward Elgar, reputed to he the most famous living musical composer of England, delivers some sharp re marks concerning the anthems of the rations. National anthems, as a rule, he says, are rubbish and rot, and he notes no exceptions to the rule. He says the rhyme, the sentiment und in some instances the music are vile, and if .the music happens to be passable it as been borrowed from somewhere. WVII keep on singing "America.’ “'"he Star-Spangled Banner,” “Yankee Hoodie" and even "Hail, Columbia'' though Sir Edward classes them with the anthems of other nations.—Port land Oregonian. Expounding Ibsen • Plays. Count Tolstoi’s sense of humor still continues to exist. One day he was discussing Ibsen with a friend. Said the latter: "I have seen a great many of li,sen’s plays, but I eannot say that 1 understand them. Do you?” Tolstoi smiled and replied: “Ibsen doesn’t understand them himself. He Just writes them and sits down and waits. After a while his expounders and ex plainers come and tell him precisely what he meant.” Never Are.

The reason for this is that they know there is no dan ger from it and that it always cures. There is not the least danger in giving it, and for coughs, colds and croup it is unsurpassed.
