IT LAUKED NOVELTY A COLLECTION OF HEIRLOOMS THAT WEARIED AN OBSERVER. The System of Renting Out Family Glory and Supplying Ancestral Trappings at So 3uch Per Hour Has Its Drawbacks. Two guests were being shown through a Philadelphia mansion in which a ouveau riche broker was entertaining a party of fashionable friends. The splendid array of family heirlooms, all bespeaking a lineage of earliest colo ial origin, deeply impressed one of the party. He was a stranger but lately arrived from Baltimore. Oddly enough, his companion, a Philadelphian, seem ed flippantly indifferent to these treas ured relics of a family's honored his tory. "Remarkable collection of heirlooms our host has," remarked the stranger as be stopped before a battle scarred sword of Revblutionary days. "Yes," drawled the Philadelphian cynically, "very interesting. But un fortunately it lacks the charm of nov elty for me. Already this season I've seen the same batch of relics in three other Philadelphia houses." "How could that be?" "Oh, simple enough. It only means that all four families, our host and the three others I refer to, hired their an cestral trappings from the same man." "Hired them?" "Yes, hired them. We have in this city an enterprising collector of colo nial junk who makes a business of renting out family glory to all who were unfortunate enough to be born without it." "Whewl" was the only comment the astonished Baltimorean could utter. And doubtless many Philadelphians would be moved to say "Whew!" if they could learn how many members of the Quaker City social elect are con strained to seek the assistance of the heirloom dealer when they wish to give a brilliant function. . It is a deception that'is forced upon them, for unless you have distinguish ed appearing forbears you stand little chance of penetrating the sacred pre cincts of the local fashionable set. Ancestry, not cash, Is the open ses ame, and even if a man can claim some sort of a family tree his pretensions are questioned unless he can show some of the furniture or portraits that his American: forefather brought with Im on thie Mayflower or the Welcome. Of course.if the two vessels named had been as large as the Great Eastern and had been loaded with nothing but heirlooms they couldn't have carried half the stock needed to launch the de scendants of Pilgrim fathers into so ciety. Hence the need of an heirloom dealer. He has his warerooms in Pine street, In a part of the city which was once the center of fashion, but is now de serted by that element in consequence of the westward movement of the city's elect. Ostensibly he is a curio dealer, but nis revenue Is mainly derived from furnishing and hanging t'he walls of fashi. able dwellings with century old portraits. This clever manipulato:? of men's vanities has ancient, straight backed furniture and copper kettles and snuff era for candies and bullseye watches and similar relics of ancie:at grandeur, all at your disposal for a night, when you, poor fellow, with money, but no ancestors, want your friends to know what an old family yours is! He also has rare furnishings for libraries and drawing rooms which you may rent if you have the price. It matters not from what part of the country the applicant hails or what particular descent he wishes to claim, his needs are promptly filled. For those ;who wish to pose as lineal descendants of the stanch old colonial patriots who fought the stamp tax and defied the power of King George at Bunker Hill and drew up the Declara tion there is especially attractive stock. For the haughty cavalier who "came over" with Lord Delaware there are costumes and furniture and portraits of more elaborate style, as befits the past of emigrants who In England basked in the favor of the king and were participants in brilliant court cer emonals. The Quaker City allegiance to the honored memory of William Penn is a sentiment that the curio dealer has been careful to cherish. On his walls he has portraits of stu dious looking Quakers. On his shelves are modest Quaker cdocks that did service in the days when the founder was exchanging thirty blankets for Philadelphia. There are Quaker walking sticks, tin der boxes, documents on all subjects, household utensils a legion. It is true that this system of supply ing ancestors has Its disadvantages. Contretemps such as the one revealed at the beginning of this article are bound to occur. The hawklike eye of a connoisseur, trained to recognize In stantly the value, authenticity and his tory of antiques, often pilerees the de ception and remembers seeing the "treasured family heirlooms" some where else. But in the main people are gullible, and the wealthy but ple beian aspirant for social honors vaunts the blueness of his blood and points pith pride to his hired heirlooms with but much danger of discovery. And meanwhile the crafty Pine street dealer smiles, waxes rich and echoes a celebrated remark of Puck's regarding the average Intelligence of mortals.-Phladelphia Nort.h Ameri Bright Pupils. A young woman teacher In one of the. grammar schools in Brooklyn was speaing of her work the other day. She said that unless a person had some experience In teaching he could scarce ly understand how marvelously stupid some children were and what peculiar mistakes ordinarily bright children sometimes make. To illustrate her point she told three stories from her wn personal experiences. One day, on a language examination, the follow ing was one of the topics: "Name three kinds of sentences and give examples." This is the way one of the children met the problem. He wrote: "Declarative, Interrogative, imperr~tive. 2+2=4. 9X2=18. 13-43=7." On another day one of the questions in a grammar examination read: "'I cannot see it -.' Co'mplete this sen tence by using the words plain or plain ly. Give your reason." One bright youth wrote this answer: "'I cannot see it plain.' Reason: Be cause It is too far away." Another scholar answered the ques ion as to why the Dutch settled on the Hudson river by saying, "So they could ave a place to wash."-New York Tribune. Nothing .worries a person so much as to'tell him that he talks in his sleep nd then not tell him .what he says. Atcbinn Globe. mnaaoo Weddings. H.ndoo weddings usually come In the hot months, when the families have leisure to prepare for them, but an as trologer must select an auspicious day for the event. The groom is ready for his preliminary game of diplomacy, which is scarcely more than a "bluff." This is a pretense to visit the sacred Ganges at Beiares and wash away his Oins in its healing waters. Generally there would not be time before the wedding day to complete such a jour ney when the groom undertakes it, but the readiness must be shown, and the company sets out. When the bride's father meets them and dissuades the groom from such an undertaking, he is very ready to stop. le Is assured, moreover, that his sins have not been so grievous as to need cleansing before his nuptials. If the bride's father is satisfied with his spiritual condition, the young man may need say no more, but he returns and prepares the thall, or gold badge, that all married women must wear suspended from their necks. -Woman's Home Companion. Too Realistic. During a performance of "Captain Lapaisse" at a Valencia theater some years ago an incident occurred which, for lifelike effect, left nothing to be de sired. During the said play some of the actors mingle with the spectators In order to co-operate from the body of the house. No sooner had Miralles, the actor, taken his seat in the stalls than a daring pickpocket robbed him of his gold watch. Miralles seized the man by his coat collar and called out in a deep bass voices "Police! Help! Thieves!" The audience, taking this little epi sode to be part of the performance, roared with laughter. Even the police men joined in without stirring hand or foot. "This is no farce!" cried the actor in tones of despair. "The fe!low has got my watch!" The voice sounded so natural that the audience broke into loud applause at "such excellent fooling." Meanwhile the thief managed to break away from his captor and escaped. Wellington's Coolness. The Duke of Wellington was one day sitting at his library table when the door opened and without any an nouncement in stalked a figure of sin gularly ill omen. "Who are you?" asked the duke in his short and, dry manner, looking up without the slightest change of coun tenance upon the Intruder. "I am Apollyon. I am sent here to kill you." "Kill me? Very odd." "I am Apollyon and must put you to death." "'Bliged to do It today?" "I am not told the day or the hour, but I must do my mission." "Very inconvenient; very busy; great many letters to write. Call again or, write me word. I'll be-ready for you." The duke then went on with his cor respondence. The maniac, appalled probably by the stern, Immovable old gentleman, backed out of the room and In half an hour was in an asylum. A Blind Man's Perception. One of the priests of St. Francis Xa vier's church devotes himself to wvork among the blind and the deaf and dumb. He says that, contrary to the general Impression, the blind are pecul iarly happy and fond of jokes. Illustrative of this, not long since a blind-acquaintance of his whose re maining seises, .like that ot all blind, are exceptionally keen, was in a room where were some lady visitors. Final ly one of the ladies left. "What remarkably white and perfect teeth that lady has!" laughingly re marked the blind man. "Why, how do you know?" asked Father Stadelman. "Because for the last half hour she has done nothing but laugh!"-New. York Times. Leaves Used For Paper. Leaves of trees were used for writing purposes yery early by the Egyptians and probably by the Greeks. The Hin dos continued the use of this material until within a few centuries. Even at the present time books of leaves are not uncommon In the south of India and the Island of Ceylon. The leaves of some Asiatic trees, from their size and smoothness, are admirably adapted for books. If we may judge from the name "leaf" being still applied to the paper of books, we should imagine these leaves to have been formerly the prin cipal material in use. Umbrella Inconsistencies. "There's something remarkable about this umbrella," said Jawleigh, exhibit Ing the antique handle. "I suppose," remarked his friend, "you refer to the fact that .while. your name Is John Anderson Jawleigh'the monogram Is F. L. T.? Nothing pecul-~ jar about that at all, sir."-Baltimore News.

When a girl pins a flower on a man's coat, she always tilts her chin.upland looks at it sideways, and the mantyho does't tumble is slow enough ito get run over by a hearse.' A Little Misunderstanding.' Soon after the convening of a new session of congress announcementiwas made of the approaching marriage of Anson G. McCook, who was then sec retary of th~e senate. A subscription was mzfediately started among the senators for the purchase of a wedding present. Two or'three prominent sen ators volunteered' to collect the money. Senator X., one of the richest men In the senate at that time, was one of these. Seeing a new senator who had not yet been approached on the subject, Senator X. went-to him and said, "Sen ator Blank, I want you to give me "What for?'"demanded the new mem "For McCookc's wedding present," ex plained Senator X. "I'll see you about it tomorrow," an swered Blank, with a scowl. "All right," said Senator X. as he walked away, "but don't forget It." Senator Blank watched him until he was out of hearing, and then, turning to his colleague, remarked with warmth: "Well, I've heard of cheeky things in my life, but that man beats all! What do you think? He just asked me to give him $25 to buy a wedding pres ent for his cook!"-New York Times.

HUNTING THE GORILLA. An Animal West Africans Say Has the Soul of a Man. Gorilla hunting is a distinct sensation even for the veteran hunter. This ani mal, which has become confused some what with fable and fiction, is a reali ty and a decidedly unpleasant one to engage. The west Africans are mortal ly afraid of it, believing that the brute contains the spirit of a man. They at tribute to It all sorts of ferocities, like the carrying off of a human being, who is permitted to return after being de prived of toe and finger nails. "Skilled hunters have never observed any of these doings, but they testify to the brute's sirength and ferocity," says Allen Sangree in Ainslee's. "According to a French sportsman, a full grown gorilla can bite through a tree six inch es thick in order to secure the sap and twist a gun barrel with the swollen bunches of muscle that serve for arms. His roar is terrifying and can be heard for a distance of three miles. "'I shall never forget how the first one impressed me,' says the French man, 'for I had a bad attack of shakes. The woods had been filled some time with a barking roar, but I saw nothing until my guide clucked softly and pointed to a tree alongside which stood an immense male gorilla. There he re mained but twelve yards away, boldly facing us with his huge chest, muscu lar arms, fiercely glaring deep gray eyes and a hellish expression, until I moved. "'At that he dropped to all fours and came six yards nearer, sitting up to beat his breasts with his huge fists-a defiance-so that it sounded like an im mense drum. Us roar was most singu lar, beginning wLii a kind of bark and deepening into a bass roll that literally resembled thunder. The short hair on his forehead was twitching, his power ful fangs showed unpleasantly, and, feeling he was about to attack and in cidentally being scared green, I shot him through the heart. With a groan something human and yet brutish, he fell on his face and died quickly, like a man. He measured 5 feet 9 inches in length, his chest was 62 inches, and his arms spread 9 feet. I was glad to have the speciihen, but somehow after that never cared to kill a gorilla unless he actually mena'ced me."' NOTHING WAS LOST. An Omission In a Wedding Ceremony That Didn't Count. A distinguished officer of the United States navy once told this story on him self: At the time of his marriage he had been through the civil war and had had many harrowing experiences aboard ship, through all of which he kept cour age and remained as calm as a brate man should. As the time for the cere mony came on, however, his calmness gradually gave way. At the altar, amid the blaze of -brass buttons and gold lace marking the full naval wedding, the officer wyas all but stampeded and what went on there seemed very much mixed to him. Fearing the excitement of the moment would temporarily take him off his feet, the officer had learned the marriage ceremony letter perfect, as he thought, and he remembered re peating the words after the minister In a mechanical sort of way. After the ceremony was over and all was serene again, including the offi cer's state of mind, the kindly clergy man came up to him and touched him on the shoulder. "Look here, old man." he said, "you didn't endow your wife with any worldly goods." "What's that?" asked the bridegroom, with something of astonishment in his voice. "Why, I repeated the sentence 'With all my worldly goods I thee endow' sev eral times and despite my efforts you would not say It after me." The bridegroom seemed perturbed for a moment, and then a beaming light came into his face. "Never mind, sir," he said. "She didn't lose a blessed thing by my fail ure."-Washington- Star.

"Such a confusing variance in the pronunciation of 'Hiawatha' exists both in dictionaries and in the speech of educated men and women," writes Elizabeth A. Withey in The Ladies' Home Journal, "that I have asked Miss Longfellow how the word Is pronounc ed by the poet's family. She says the pronunciation which she always heard from the poet himself Is Hi-a-wa-tha, the 'i' pronounced as it is in 'machine' or 'pique.' the second 'a' pronounced as it Is in 'far' or in 'father.'
