No Accounting- for Tastes.
New York Sun.
" You had better get rid of that stovepipe
hat; you'll be livelier without it,"
said a powerfully-built, red-faced young
truck-driver the other day, as ho nearly
drove over a delicate-looking gentleman on
Park row. The pedestrian mid to skip
in a very undignified manner to escape.
" You want your neck wrung very badly,"
he said, as he gained the sidewalk and
looked after the truck.
The driver heard him and pulled up his
horse at once.
" Will you wring it?" he asked, in gruff
The gentleman took a few steps to consider
the question. Then he said :
No, I'll leave that job for the hangman ;
but I'll flatten your nose, if that will suit
It appeared that the proposal suited the
driver, for in thirty seconds he stood before
his fragile-looking man.
" Now flatten my nose," he said defiantly.
It was done before the words were well
vout of his mouth, and as he lay on his
back in the gutter the expression of his
bloodbespattered countenance was that
of mingled pain and amazement.
"What did you strike that man for?"
asked a policeman, hurrying up and seizing
the gentleman by the arm.
"Because he asked me to strike him,
you know," was the reply, "andjas he
looked like an honest, goodnatured young
follow, I didn't like to disoblige him."
The policeman looked at the truck-man
who rose slowly, and, without makig any
complaint, mounted the seat of his wagon
and drove off.
" Vell," said the police man impressively,
as he walked away.. " there's no
A Tile Trick on the London Times.
Correspondence Philadelphia Telegraph.
A singular incident disturbed the
equanimity of the Times editorial staff on
Monday last. I he Times boasts of its accuracy
"and is not often caught napping. In
the Monday morning edition of the paper
a full report was given of the speech delivered
on the preceding Saturday by Sir
Vernon Harcourt, and what was the horror
of the sub-editor at discovering after
half the edition was printedjthat a drunken
or malicious compositor had interpolated
two lines of his own, in addition to the
"copy" given him, in the middle of Sir
Vernon Harcourt's speech. The interpolation
was the vilest and most filthy
ribaldry that the imagination of an impure
mind coutd possibly conceive. How on
earth the matter escaped the proof-readers
and was permitted to be stereotyped is a
mystery. When the affair was discovered
the Walter presses were at once stopped
and the offensive lines deleted, but this
was not done before the early newspaper
trains had carried off all thecountry edi
tion, and a good portion of the papers
intended for the metropolis had been
distributed. As compared with the
cheaper London dailies, the Times has -not
an enormous circulation. I believe now
that about 70,000 copies are printed every
day. The management was intensely
mortified at the unfortunate occurrence,
and has spent many hundred of pounds
I may say thousands in trying to stop
the sale of "the edition. Those consigned
to distantplaces were stopped by telegraph
before they could be distributed, and
agents were sent in every direction to buy.
up any papers in circulation. The first
price offered was half a crown per copy,
but the price ran up, as some speculators
got hold of a quantity, and finally as much
as two guineas ($10.50) per copywas paid.
A Worthy Subject.
When Judge Cox asked the prisoner if
he had anything to say why sentence of
death should not be passed", Guiteau replied
: "I ask your Honor to postpone
the sentence as long as possible." There
was a realizing sense of his peril and a
lawyer's knowledge of the value of delay.
A man who is shrewd enough to take
advantage of every point of his case at
every stage is just sane enough to hang.
