Rec. ..e sMl SfMee--An ICl* . ese's 5erfA.. ASetUes. or my thorough appreciation of a lage sd good dinner I , I believe, Indebted to my father. He was a great diner, and it is well known that the An et qualities of the English race are her editary. My father suffered from gout. and the doctors, who are a mass of prej udices, tell me that I also have got it. However. I am thankful to say that I know my own constitution. What is really the matter with me is a sort of cold accompanied by inflammation in one toe. It arises, I should say, from overwork. Old port is good for it. A fine appreciation of dinner should be accompanied by a large income. When my father died of apoplexy (brought on by a quarrel with his cook, 'who was a'fair instanu of talent as dis tinct from genius), I succeeded to his position in the firm, :.nd to an income which even in the ty is considered to be fairly large. I lo. e largeness. I love large incomes, large houses, large appe tites, largwaistco ts, large dinners. I can never he tooth ukfnl that I can well afford large diune "i. It was always my ambition to be, like my father, a gre;it diner, and it wonl be but false humil:ty to say that I slhill die without having earned the reputation. I distinguish between the diner and the diner out. I do not want to be un charitable, but I have no higl opinion of the diner out. He does not. as a rule. take the dinner itself quite seriously. He is liable to show an interest in the women whom he takes in or in the con versation. Now, life is too short for that division of intere-· ;; we only have time to do one thing well. Let dinner be that one thing. I say, dine-merely dine. That is enough. Do that well, and you have the best delight that this world can give you. As for conversa tion. I denise it. Now, there was the case of Charles Nutcomb. He was with us at one time and might for family reasons have come into a small partnership. It would not have been much-some £3,000 a year but ample for a young and unmarried man who is willing to exercise ordinary care. Charles was a diner out, and for family reasons I once asked him to dine with me, although in a general way I will not have young men at my table. At the very moment when we were eat ing a vol-au-vent that from its peculiar ly subtle and lovely character demanded the eater's attention, reve-rence and si lence-at that very moment. Charles Nutcomb was tactl-ss enough to tell a story. It cause:l noisy laughter. It, if I may use the phrase, completely broke the spell. It was like whistling in church. However, it was not in conse quence of this indiscretion alone that I finally decided to get rid of Nutcomb. He refused port. A man who refuses port-my port-is a fool and conse quently unfit to be a partner in Gorg bury & Pigge. A fortnight afterward I managed to make some excuse for get ting him out of office. I feel positively certain that he would have embezzled money if he had remained. His after career only confirmed my low opinion of him. He went completely to the dogs -became an author, in fact. But I am not unduly devoted to wine. Indeed I sometimes wonder whether I am more fond of that or of the solid part of the dinner. Both are good. Both bring out all that is best in a man. The feeling of gratitude, for instance, is com mendable. It is impossible to think' much about the commonest viands paragus, the simple oyster, or even a cut from a perfect saddle of mutton-with out feeling gratefuL Then, too, dinner promotes the kindly spirit. When I lie back in my chair after dinner, breathing stertorou.ly, my temper becomes kindly to the verge of fatuousness. When in the morning a clerk arrives an hour late and makes some paltry ex cuse-that his wife is dead. or some non sense of that sort-I of course dismiss him at once. But if I were to defer my decision until the evening I should very likely confine myself to fining him a week's salary. If it were his first offense. and my dinner had been particularly good, I might seven let him off with a reprimand. That is the reason why I do no business under any pretext after din ner. It is all very well to feel kindli ness, hut one has to be careful that the fading shall not influence one's actions. How inseparable from our nu.rest de lghtsa our deeps-at sorrown-!

Our tLrst convert in America is still living and serving the army in Boston. The history of his reform is a remarka ble one. The conversion of the first of amighty multitude was brought about by Com missioner Railton, then in command of the American forces of the army. and Superintendent Thomas Byrnes of the New York police. Mr. Byrnes was an inspector of police at the time, early in 180). It is safe to say that in Salvation Army circles there are very few who do not know Jimmy, by reputation at least. Jimmy was a thief and drunkard when convert, d in New York in March, 1880. His name is James Kemp. Three times Jimmy narrowly escaped losing his life. On one occasion he was nearly frozen to death-outside Billy Mc Glory's notorious dive. On another oc-. casion he was so brutally beaten in a Water street dive that he was supposed to be dead. The morgue wagon was called by the police, and the bruised and battered body, tpparently dead, was car ried to the morgue. When it, or rather he, arrived there some of the doctors made the discovery that Jimmy still lived, and so he was taken to the hos pital, where he remained four months. His last narrow escape from death was when he drank a quantity of spirits of wine which he found in a cellar. Jim. my drank so much he went raving mad and tried to hang himself. He was sent to prison for three months for attempt ing suicide. The first :gaturday afternoon in March, 18.O, Jimmy started out to have some amusement, and hearing that the Salva tion Army, which had just arrived from England, was going "to show" at Harry Hill's notorious resrt he concluded to go there and see what kind of people the soldio.rs were. When he arrived at Hill's. he found that there was an admission fee, and he, with a drunkard's economy, determined to spend the price of admis sion in a different manner. Toward night he strolled into a dive in Water street, where his Whyo friends painted his back and served his face the same way and wound up the performance by rolling the unfortunate man in the saw dust of the dive floor. Jimmy, after sub mitting to their treatment, thought they would let him stay there all night; but. alas, they kicked him out on the street. Just as Jimmy reached the sidewalk his cap blew off and fell into an ash bar. rel which was standmg near the door of the den. Jimmy tried to recover it, but in doing so lost his balance and fell head first into the barrel. He struggled to get out, but all his efforts were in vain. He seemed to be there to stay. A short time after Jimmy's acrobatic feat a policeman came along, and seeing a man's legs in the barrel set to work to discover who was the owner of them and why he had them in such a position He took out his club and struck the in verted man on the soles of his feet. These means are sometimes resorted to by policemen to arouse drunken man. From the depths of the barrel came a voice which the policeman at once recog nised. He rapped for assistance, and when another officer appeared on the scene an effort was made to get Jimmy from his novel but painful position. They pulled at the protruding feet, but Jimmy failed to respond, his clothes hav ing been caught on the nails which had been driven through the barrel. They pulled until the old rotten shoes gave way and were left in their hands. The policemen then threw the barrel down on its side, and laying hold of the unfor tunate man's feet they dragged the bar rel and its howling occupant toward the policestateon.

PREMIUM8 RIFLES SHOT GUNS Nowadays nearly every man sad boy owns or wants to own a Rie. Hunting Is always popular and often a necessity. We have there fore decided to add a Rifle and a Shot Gun to our numerous premium offers. We want to interest everybody and every class in our publication. As In other premiums, we have sought out the best artiles to offer in this column, and have made very favorable arrangements with the sell ing agents of the Marlin Arms Co, which will enable us to offer the cele brated 1 ARLIN REPEATING RIFLE, NEW MOOEL. to our readers as a premium at whole. sale prices. This Rifle has many ad vantages over other repeating rifles. "The point in which this arm differs most from the old style of re. peating rif. ' that the top of the receiver is en. tirely solid, the empty shells being ejected through an opening in the right hand side di rectly over the loading bole. In this system of side ejecting the empty shells are never thrown into the face, never cross the line of sight or in any other way interfere in taking aim for the iSat sho e".. always ejected to the right sad away mae the shooter. Another great advantage is aat the doing away with the opening on the top and the closing of the side slot by the bolt makes it impossible for any rain, snow, falling leaves or dirt to get into the action. "In case of a defective cartridge giving out around the head, as often happens from re loading or from poor metal, no powder will be blown into the face or eyes, as the solid top forms a perfect shield." The Marlin Repeating Ripfle is made in sov eral calibres, and any make of cartridges of the same marked calibre of the rifle can be used for it.
