""KE BUSINESS OF EATING Professionals Assist Diners Who Are Compelled by Etiquette to Leave Clean Plates. One of the most striking customs of the past that are preserved by the Indians of today Is found among the tribes on the Devil's Uike reservation in North Dakota. According to the re port of an officer of the Indian burea i the Devil’s l^ake Sioux have from time immemorial adhered to a curious •ustom in regard to the treatment of guest. According to their etiquette it is The bonnden duty of the host to supply his guest with all the food he may desire, and as a rule the ap portionment set before ihe visiting In dian is much in excess cl the capacity of a single man. Hut by the same custom the guest is obliged to eat all that is placed before him else he grossly insults his entertainer. It was found that this practice would j work a hardship, but instead of dis pensing with the custom the Indian I method of reasoning was applied, and I what is known as the profesionni j eater was brought to the front. I While the guest is supposed to ea* all that is placed before him. it serves the same purpose if his neighbor as sists in devouring fhe bountiful re past. the main object being to have the plate clean when the meal is fin Ished. It is not always practicable to depend upon a neighbor at table to as sist in getting away with a large din ner. and in order to insure the final consumption of (lie allotted portion, visiting Indians call upon these pro fesional eaters, whose duty it is to sit beside them throughout a meal and eat what the guest leaves. The pro fesior.al eaters are never looked upon in the light of guests, but more as traveling companions with a particular duty to perform. These eaters receive from one dollar to two and even three dollars for each meal where they as sist. It is said that one of these pro fessional eaters has been known 1c dispose of seventeen pounds of beef at a sitting. ‘■Ercak’’ on the Wire. Two telegraph operators were seat ed in ? downtown cafe recently when an athletic young man and an exceed ingly pretty girl entered. They were placed at a table opposite the ‘‘key’’ rn*-:.. who were sitting side by side in a position facing the girl. As is the custom of the craft when wishing to discuss someone in a public place they telegraphed to each other, using their knives on the plate. “Peaeherinc, isn't she?" one ticked to the other. "A tree full,” came back the tapping | reply. "Wonder who the sack is with ; her?” “Search me—looks like a boob tied up with a wren like her.” ‘‘P.et they aren’t married. If they are, all she needs to do to get a di- ! vorce is to exhibii that map o2 his ir ' court.” While the two men were enjoying a huge laugh over their silent joking ! they were surprised and somewhat | alarmed to hear some more “table j knife t> iegraphy.” The "peacherino” i was doii.g it and she did not look at 1 | r.ii please .1, i i:hc r.

To an extent It fortifies the Democratic element in giving the people of the cities 1 greater influence in the government, it arrives at nearly the same result by impoverishing the peasant and land owner, by the many new pleasures of fered him and by displaying to him the ostentation and voluptuousness of luxury and ease.

' Somewhat Peculiar Marriage Cere mony That Satisfied the Chief Par ticipants and a Large and Ap preciative Audience. J In an early day in Kansas a couple appeared before a probate judge named Aplington to be wed. The Judge had never performed a mar riage ceremony, but he determined to lo the job according to the statutes in such case made and provided, as he understood them. There was a large and appreciative audience prea ent. and the judge commenced pnte \eedihgs: "Fellow Citizens: This here man and this here woman have appeared oefore this court ti? he hitched in ‘he legal bands of wedlock.

A giant warrior, or gladiator, clad in iron armor, was discovered In on9 ’ the* tombs, which was covered "with big tiles taken from the Temple of Tiberius. A number of bronze coins bearing the effigy of the Empress < f h'anstina, in addition to a quantity of ] rings, safety pins and brooches of a ffvy early period, a terra-cotta ele phant’s head, and a fragmentary vase, containing inscriptions, are among 'lie latest finds.
