A Tragic Age.

catastrophe which has fallen upon;

a great service. It is going to oblige

An Unintended Joke and a Bit of th?
LI \Aj:x
Englaud fairly reveled In Mark
Tnnin. At one of the great banquets
a roll of the distinguished guests was
called and the names properly applauded.
Mark Twain, busily engaged
in low conversation with his neighbor,
applauded without listening, vignrrnislv
nr mild]v as the Others led.
Finally a name was followed by a
great burst of long and vehement clapping.
This must be some very great
person indeed, and Mark Twain, not
to be outdone in his approval, stoutly
kept his hands going until all the others
had finished.
"Whose name was that we were just
applauding?" he asked of his neighbor.
"Mark Twain's!"
But it was no matter?they took it all
as one of hia jokes.
He was a wonder and a delight to
them. Whatever he did or said was
to them supremely amusing. When on
one occasion a speaker humorously referred
to his American habit of carrying
.7 cotton umbrella, his reply that he
did so L^cause it was the only kind of
an umbrella that an Englishman
wouldn't steal was repeated all over
England next day as one of the finest
examples of wit since the days of
Swift.?Paine's "Boys' Life of Mark
Twain'* in St Nicholas.
It Was Unknown In England In Lord
Chesterfield's Time.
J^Jien did thq, English flrstjadopt the
toothbrush habi?, VSiicb In recent
times has been denounced by certain
medical authorities? In "Esmond"
Thackeray makes Lord Castiewooa
spend "a tenth part of his day in the
brnshing of his teeth and the oiling of
Ms hair," and in doing so the novelist
commits a double anachronism.
During the first half of tbe eighteenth
century all fine gentlemen wore wigs
and had no use for oil on their hair,
while the toothbrush was so late as
1754 unknown to "Lord Chesterfield,
Writing to his son, Chesterfield says:
"1 hope yoc take great care of your
month and teeth and that you clean
fh?*m troll prprv mnrnlnt? with fl snnnerA
and tepid water, with a few drops of
arquebusade water dropped into it I
do insist upon your never using those
sticks or any hard substance whatever,
wiiich always rub away the gnms and
destroy the varnish of the teeth."?
London Saturday Review.
The First Stock Exchange.
The Stock Exchange did not call it
solf hv thflt nnmck till nparlv the end
of the eighteenth century. A newspa
per of July 15. 1773. tells us how the
name of their place of business was
altered by resolution from " 'New Jonathan's'
to 'The Stock Exchange' which
is to be wrote over the door. The brokers
then collected sixpence each and
christened the house with punch."?

in the possession of Mr. Wright, whicii
is as follows:
"Judge Robert J. Breckinridge, of
Danville, Ky., one of the most leurned
jurists of the South, gave the following
sure cure for hydrophobia:
"One ounce and a half of Elecam- j
pane root, bruised; put into a pint of
new milk and reduced one-half b?
boiling. Take it all at once in the
morning, fasting until afternoon, or
nt nrvt pfltin,p- until cjpvpral h/vnrc
have passed. The second dose shoula
be the same as the first, except two
ounces of the root are needed. The
third dosa should be the same as the
second. Three doses are all that is;
needed for the cure. This medicine
can be given at any time before the
spasms come upon the bitten person.
Aj dose for a horse or cow should
be three or four times as large as that
for a person.'' 7 . j
"If idleness is the root of all eril/
said Van Brugh, "then, matrimony's
a poor woman to work."
Well, how about the idle days that
follow marriage? in "Union there isf
J strength," but in a mJirriage union
there must.also be co-operation, if all
goes well with husband and wife.
It is fair that a husband should
shouldar tha major problems, tout
those of the wife are no less great,
and the peculiar nature of tier preb*
lem mi.rkes her part in co-operatioil
most trying.
Sometimes the husband is at fault
as was Richard Baker in the great
Broadway success, "Husband ana
