A Safe Place.
General William W. Belknap went to
the war of the rebellion as the major
of the Fifteenth Iowa infantry. In one
of the companies of that regiment was
a young fellow named Darby Greely.
When the regiment was marching over
the gangplanks on to the steamer
Sucker State the major sat on his
horse close. by. As Darby Greely
stepped on the plank his mother grab
bed him and pulled him to her bosom.
With intense emotion she cried and
crooned over him and then, seeing the
major, she cried, "Darby, me b'y, s':ick

No Stain on His Record.
A New York clergyman, who often
srends his vacation in fishing the
streams of the Adirondacks, was on
one trip adopted by a handsome setter
dog, which insisted on following him
from camp to camp as he moved along
One day he met a party of men work
ing upstream with a native guide. The
guide immediately recognized the dog
as his own property.
"Trying to steal my setter, are you?"
he shouted at the clergyman. "'11
have you to jail for this! There's a
law in the woods just as big as you
have in the city."
The clergyman endeavored -to ex
plain that he was an unwilling com
panion of the dog, which had refused
to be driven away, but to little effect
until he added a two dollar bill to his
"It's queer what strange things hap
pen to a man up here," he said to the
stage driver who later carried him
away from the woods. "That is the
first time I was ever accused of steal

"Yes, sir," replied the driver, sym
pathetically, and added, after a mo
ment's pause, "For myself, sir, I have

When you see the name Rydale in an
advertisement or on a remedy it is a
sure sign that the remedy advertised is
compounded from the prescription of a
specialist. A specialist in a certain
disease knows more about and is better
fitted to treat that disease than 'anyone
else, and that is the aeason why the
Rydale remedy never fails to relieve
and so often cure the troubles for which
they are recommended. Ry dale's Stom
ach Tablets, for Indigestion and Dys
pepsia; Rydale's Liver Tablets for liver
and bowels- Rydale's Tonic, for a sys

ordinary Coughs ancn bronchial trouble,
are four prescriptions of the best
specialists and will do all that medicine

HOW THEY DINED.
Methods of the English at Table In the
The old English had three meals a
day, of which the chier meal was tak
en when the work of the day was fin
ished. The first meal was at 0, dinner
was about 3 o'clock, and supper was
taken just before bedtime. The Nor
mans dined at the old English break
fast time or a little later and supped at
7 p. m. In Tudor times the higher
classes dined at 11 and supped at 5,
but the merchants seldom took their
sneals before 12 and G o'clock.
The chief meals, dinner and supper,
were taken in the hall both by the old
English and the Normans, for the par
lor did not come into use until the
reign of Elizabeth. Breakfast did not
become a regular meal until quite late
ly, and Dr. Murray in the Oxford Dic
tionary ga ve 1413 as the date of the
earliest quotation in which the word
occurred. The meal did not become
recognized until late in the seventeenth
century, for Pepys habitually took his
draft of half a pint (if Rhenish wine
or a dram of strong waters in place of
a morning meal. Dinner was always
the great meal of the day, and from
the accession of Henry IV. to the
death of Queen Elizabeth the dinners
were as sumptuous and extravagant as
any of those now served.
Carving was then a fine art. Each
guest brought his own knife and spoon,
for the small fork was not introduced
into England until Thomas Coryate of
Odeombe published his "Crudities" in
1611. Pepys took his spoon and fork
with him to the lord mayor's feast in
16G3. The absence of forks led to
much stress being laid upon the acjof
washing the hands both before and
after meals and to the rule that the
left hand alone should be dipped into
the common dish, the right hand being
occupied with the knife.
The perfect dinner at the best time
of English cookery consisted of three
courses, each complet-e in itself, and
terminated by a subtlety or device, the
whole being rounded off with ypocras,
after which the guests retired into an
other room, where pastry. sweetmeats
and fruit were served with the choicer
wines. The English were essentially
meat eaters, and it was not until the
time of the commonwealth that pud
ding attained its extraordinary popu
larity. Indeed, the first mention of
pudding in the menus of the Buckfeast
at St. Bartholomew's hospital did not
occur until 1710, and in 1712 is an iten'
of 5 shillings for ice.--London Times.

Why Jimmy Didn't Sit Down.
The woman who had shopped until
the closing gong had sounded stood at
the transfer station and awaited the
"What," she wearily asked herself,
"does It profit a woman if she gain
the elusive bargain and loses every
trace of physical freshness?"
Presently the car came along. It
had the usual crowd of humanity, and
the woman resignedly prepared to
stand, when a grimy youth arose and
tendered her his place. Protesting
faintly, she sank into It guiltily and
registered a vow never to shop over
In due time several seats were vacat
ed, and the woman looked hopefully
toward her knight
"Jimmy," a friend of his was saying,
"there's room Inside now. Why don't
you sit down?"
And the last drop of discomfort was
added to the woman's cup of humilia

MAKING A DICTIONARY.
The Colossal Task of Selecting the
Words to Be Used.
One of the men who compiled a big
dictionary talks as follows about the
way the work was done:
From the largest dictionary of the
language all the words were diligently
copied, and then each of the smaller
dictionaries was checked off in turn
against this growing list. When the
dictionaries had been thus exhausted
all the living authors of works that
had an undoubted standard value were
secured to contribute from their works
such words as they had used that were
not found in the general dictionaries.
In addition to this, the services of
about 500 readers were utilized, among
whom was distributed all the standard
literature from Chaucer to the present
time. These readers were instructed
to report such words as seemed to be
new and not found in the ordinary dic
tionaries and to locate them by page
and line that they might be inspee .d.
each in its own context. For this pur
pose pri' ared blanks were furnished.
Specialists in various trades, arts and
professions were also invited to send
such words belonging to the technique
of their vocabularies as might be fa
miliar to them, but which were not in
general use, and so had not found their
way into the dictionaries.
It will be seen that the collection of
a vocabulary on such a plan, though
there were many helpers, was a long
and laborious task, involving a great
amount of correspondence, which ex
tended literally all over the world.
Added to this was the nearly appalling
task of editorial and clerical work,
merely to sift and organize these con
tributions. It is not to be imagined
that words so gathered could or should
be all included. An organized staLff of
editors and philologists was required,
who passed upon the eligibility of each
The conservative care exercised in
determining the scope and limits of a
vocabulary can be inferred from the
fact that in one of these offices, after
a "dragnet" had gathered over 500,000
words, more than 200,000 were f.nally
rejected. These included words that
were still too completely foreign to
merit a place in an English vocabu
lary, all the "used but once" words,
considerable slang language and many
technical terms that had good reasons
against them. The fixing of a date be
fore which words should be excluded,
except on certain conditions, resulted
In throwing out many.
When words have been selected for a
dictionary, several distinct things must
be done with them. They must be di
vided into their proper syllables, and
the right syllables must be supplied
with accents. They must be pro
nounced by the use of certain arbitrary
signs used In a respelling of them t-,
indicate the powers of the letters they
contain. They must be defined in all
the senses In which they have actually
been found used in literature. In the
ease of a primary form the origin of
the word in other languages-that is,
its etymology-must be given.-Chlcago

-THE PERFECT LIKENESS.
A Snuffbox, a Portrait and a Sur
It Is related of Frederick II.. king of
Prussia, that he one day made a pres
ent of a golden snuffbox to one of his
counts, When the latter opened the
lid he found the picture of an ass
painted upon the underside of it.
Though he scarcely relished the king's
joke, he said nothing at the time, but
as soon as he quitted the k-lng's pres
ence be sent one of hIs valets with the
snuftbox to the city and gatve him In
structions that the picture of the ass
was to be painted out and a portrait
of the king put In Its place.
A few days later a distinguished
company dined with the king. The
count was one of the guests, and after
a time he produced his sntufbox and
pretended to examine It with the air
of a man who was proud to have re
ceived such a gift from the king. The
latter, wishing to enjoy a little amuse
ment at the count's expense, mention
ed to the Duchess of Brunswick that
he had ~made a present of the box to
the count on the preceding day. She
desired to inspect it, and when the
box was handed to her she opened
the lid and, looking inside, cried In
raptures: "Perfect! The likeness is
charming! It Is one of the best por
traits of you that I have ever seen!"
She handed the box to the person
next to her, who was equally charmed
with the likeness. From one to anoth
er the box was passed, and all testi
fied to the excellent resemblance which
the picture bore to the king. The king,
thinking that the ass' head was still
to be seen on the snuffbox, felt exceed
ingly embarrassed and scarcely knew
what to make of the Incident, but at
last the snuffbox, having made the
tour of the table, came to his hands.
and the first glance showed him how
cleverly the count had anticipated his
