Thackeray's Disfigured Nose.
The usual account of how Thack
eray was disfigured says that Venables
broke the novelist's nose in a fair
fight. John Ward in Notes and Que
ries supplies another version. About
a year after Thackeray's death Mr.
Ward was traveling on one of the
main railways and had as compnnidns
two old ladies who knew Thackeray
well. One of them said the novelist
had told them this story:
"Being one of the youngest pupils
(at Charterhouse), he was chosen by
one of the older lads, "a rather proud
aristocrat iu his way, to act as his
fag. Thackeray bore it as well as he
could, but demurred to some more ar
bitrary command than usual and flatly
refused to obey, whereupon the young
'aristocrat' caught Thackeray up, held
his head under his arm aud with the
heel of his boot used as a hammer
beat the beautiful aquiline nose quite
flat with his facein fact, breaking
and Injuring its structure completely
the excuse being, 'You'll clean my
boots next time, sir.'
Before his injury Thackeray was,
the same authority says, remarkably
handsome.Westminster Gazette.

Rvhen he is without funds. The other
evening be walked into a cafe and said
to the proprietor:
"Good evening, Mr. M."
"How are you, Terry?" was the re
sponse.
"Pretty good, pretty good, barrin' a

It's glad I am, too, about that By the

PICKS WHITE SOX TO FINISH SEVENTH
Former Manager Fielder A. Jones.
Fielder A. Jones, former manager of
the Chicago White Sox, and now a
resident of Portland, Ore., was asked
the other day to express an opinion
on the outcome of the American
league race, and the chances of his
former teammates in the pennant
chase.
"Philadelphia should repeat in a
walk, with Detroit as a possible con
tender for a portion of the season,"
said Jones. "The Athletics as just as
strong as last year and should win
again as handily. New York looks to
be good for third place, while Cleve
land and Boston will fight it out for
fourth and fifth positions. Washing-
Saier looks better every time he
plays.
Prank Schulte has forgotten how to
rap out the homers.
The Athletics gradually are working
their way toward the top.
Young Corban seems to share the
favoritism of the fans with Bodie.
Teams may win and teams may
lose, but the Tigers go on forever.
And like Ingerton, Luderrus is smit
ing the sphere most lustily for those
Phillies.
Beck of Cincinnati joined Joe Jack
son's "Home Run With the Bases
Full" club.
Cleveland secured three of the best
recruit pitchers of the years. Gregg,
Knapp and West.
Nothing but a railroad wreck can
atop the Tigers if they keep up their
present whirlwind pace.
Davpy Jones of the Tigers thinks
that Dick Padden is one of the great
est field generals that ever lived.
The Senators are going to make
a strong bid for the top of the second
division iu the league this season.

ton, with Walter Johnson, ought it
get sixth position, while the White
Sox I place at seventh, unless St.
Louis shows a greater improvement
than I believe possible. Comiskey is
shy on pitchers, and the American
league race will be a pitchers' battle
again this season.
"In the National league. Chicago and
New York will fight it out, with Cin
cinnati as a possible contender if
Griff's bad actors behave."
Devore Leads Giants.
Devore is leading the Giants at the
bat in a double senseleads off and
has the most hits.
Evidently 1911 is to b a high bat

Paul Meloan appears to have re
gained his batting eye.
Boston Red Sox appear to be anoth
er surprise of the season.
Pretty soon the Cub team will nol
be recognized by its old adherents.
Baseball past performances usually
are as reliable as those of the ponies.
Most followers of the game ar
past all surprise when those two get
together.
President Hedges of the Browns is
trying to land some of the Detroit
players again.
The Phillies are leading the league
in long hits, as well as leading in the
percentage column.
Josh Devore, the Giant left fielder,
says he is going out after the base*
stealing record this season.
Catcher Crisp, who was sold to the
Topeka club of the,Western league by
the Browns refused to go there.
Jim McGuire's career as a manager
in the big league was not an enjoyable
on'e cither at Boston or in Cleveland.
Bill Bradley, the old-time Nap third
baseman, is going fine for the Toronto
team. He is fielding as well as ever,
and making two hits a day.

When Nature Was Timekeeper.
In the British museum is a large
stone composed of carbonate of lime,
which would serve perfectly as a day
laborer's calendar inasmuch as it would
indicate to him every Sunday and holi
day of the year, though not the day of
the month. Moreover, the stone is an
actual time record of the work done
for a long period in an English coal
mine.
The "Sunday stone," as It is called,
was removed from a colliery drain.
When the miners were at work the
water running through the drain left
a deposit colored black by the coal
dust, but when no work was being
done the water ran down clear and left
a white deposit. These deposits in the
course of time built up the stone.
Each day of work left a black streak.
Immediately followed by a white streak
made during the night Wide" white
streaks indicate the holidays and Sun
days.Harper's Weekly.
Back to Adam
A parchment roll over a foot wide
and nineteen feet long containing the
genealogical tree of King Henry VI. is
in the Welsh National library at
Aberystwith. The work is beautifully
executed in tabular'fashion of the lat
ter half of the fifteenth century and Is
illuminated with miniatures, rich capi
tals aid red ornamental letters. The
pedigree is traced from Adam, and
the particulars occupy a red line of
six yards on the scroll. On the left

of archbishops of Canterbury down to

A Resourceful Badger.
An English artist while painting a
sea piece discovered a badger's lair and
thought to play the animal a practical
joke. Gathering together a bundle of
grass and weeds, he placed it inside
the mouth of the hole and, iguiting it
with a match, waited for the ignomini
ous flight of the astonished household
er. But Master Badger was a resource
ful animal and not disposed to be
made a butt of practical jokers. He
came up from the depths of bis bole
as soon as the penetrating smoke told
him that there was a Are on the prem
ises and deliberately scratched earth
on the burning grass with his strong
claws until all danger was past. No
human being could have grasped the
situation more quickly or displayed
greater skill In dealing with an un
familiar event.
Building a Reputation.
Young physicians in the smaller
towns have an idea that appearing
very busy will help them greatly in
starting a practice. The following"is
told by a now prominent Kentucky
physician. He had a call the after
noon following the hanging out of his
shingle and started through town in
his buggy at terrific speed. A police
man stopped the enterprising physk
clan..
"Doctor," he said, "it is against the
city ordinance to drive at the speed
you are going. You must accompany
me to the judge and pay your fine."
"What Is the fine?" inquired the
doctor.
"Five dollars."
The doctor's hand flew to his pocket.
"Here's $10. I hare to come back just
as fast as I am going."Success Maga

Ambition.
The scroll of fame has variant at
tractions for different minds.
"Here lies one whose name was writ

John .Keats desired that admission of
defeat engraved for his epitaph.
"Write me as one who loved his fel
low men," was Leigh Hunt's aspira
tion.
To be remembered as the author of
Declaration of Independence and of
the first statue for religious freedom
and -as the founder of the University
of Virginia, this was Thomas Jeffer
son's prayer to posterity.

MOB KILLS SIX NEGROES
Lined Up In Florida Town and Rid
dled With Bullets.
Lake City, Fla. May 23.Six ne
groes were lynched here after a party
ef more than a dozen men, masquerad
lng as officers, appeared at the coun
ty jail and secured possession of them
by presenting a forged telegram to
the sixteen-year-old son of the sheriff,
ordering the release of the blacks to
the alleged posse officers. The negroes
were being held here for safekeeping
on the charge of murdering B. B.
Smith of Wadsborbugh and wounding
another man named Register on
May 12.
The lynchers, who had come from
Tallahassee to Lake City in automo
biles, took the blacks about a mile
outside of Lake City, where they com
pelled them to stand abreast. Ten
men then fired rifles and pistols at
the negroes until every one of the six
were riddled with bullets. Citizens at
daybreak found the dead bodies just
after the automobile containing the
lynchers had left the scene.
The plans of the lynchers were dar+
lng, though but for a combination of
circumstances they probably would
not have been successful. The sheriff
of Columbia county was out of the
city and left the jailJn Charge of the
boy, who, aroused In the early hours
of the morning, allowed the negroes
to be taken from the jail without
knowing the purpose of the mob.
The telegram which the leader of
the mob showed the boy was sup
posedly from the sheriff of Leon coun
ty and said that the sheriff had re
ceived intimations that a mob was
being formed in Tallahassee to take
the negroes from the Lake City jail.
The message ordered that the men be
carried further south to frustrate the
suspected mob. As the six negroes'
have been moved frequently, the boy
thought the telegram authentic.

tron agreed to go to give her consent
on condition that a carriage be sent
for her, and if not, said she, she
would stay at home. The hour for the
wedding came, but the carriage did
not, so the mamma stayed at home.
The bridegroom in desperation when
she did not appear ran out into the
street and hunted up a promising look
ing woman, who agreed to come and
act mother for the sum named. So
she gave consent and blessing to the
daughter whom she bad never seen in
