George Wnshlngton one winter's night the Delnwnre went o'er, 'Mid Icy drifts he safely passed and reached the other shore; Tho world in wonder heard of It, and none was there to say That George could not have crossed that night, for ho was miles away, J, Cnesar conquered many worlds and beat up many foes, And In the end was stabbed by friends, ns everybody knows; Brutus was not above the knife, as each historian writes. Hut still he noer swore on oath that Caesar faked his fights. But times havo changed; to-day wo find our hero sore beset, The lecturo plntform pays him well nnd royally he's met; A great deed glory brings, but ere he grows accustomed to It, Rome one on affidavit makes to prove he didn't do It.

"He looked worried for am Inute, nnd then, with n heamlng smile, said: " 'Why snah, Massa, I dun drove elat hack mahself,' ' Henry R Dlxey tells this on a young French nobleman, who had eagerly ac- quired n few American phrases from a charming chorus girl sojourning In Paris. Not long after at a reception given by a recently Imported American marquise, he seler.ed the opportunity to greet her in ner own language. , "How d'yo do.
