TO REACH TO lark Twain Tells How He Reached Three Score and Ten. New York, Dec. 11 .—"How to get to 70 and not mind it." jr~ Tha t was the subject of the address [ delivered Monday night by Mark Twain ; at the dinner given in bis honor at Del monlco's by olonel George Harvey, I president of TTnrper & Gros. The din i'ner signalized the world-renowned « humorist's seventieth birthday. The guests were almost exclusively [writers of imaginative literature. '.'About 170 authors were present, nearly half of them being women. It was the first time in the history of the country 'that ft large literary dinner was attend ed by members of both sexes and the . experiment proved a delightful success. ^Nearly every well-known writer in America greeted the celebrated humor ist either personally or by letter or oem. During the dinner a congratulatory I table message was received from Eng I land signed by forty of the most dis I tlnguished British statesmen and men of letters. Colonel Harvey was the toastmaster. Mark Twain said in part: "The sevetnieth birthday! It is the time of life when you arrive at a new and awful dignity; when you throw I aside the reverses which have repressed I you for a generation and stand un afraid and 1 unabashed upon' your seven terraced summit and look down and teach— unrëbuked. You can tell the world how you got there. It Is what they all do. Mark Twain'« Way. •1 have achieved my seventy years In the usual way: by sticking strictly to a scheme of life which would kill anybody else. "We have no permanent habits until we are forty. Then they begin to pet rify, then business begins. Since forty I have been regular about going to bed and getting up—and that Is one of the main thing«. I have made It a rule to go to bed when there was not anybody left to ait up with; and I have made it a rule to get up when I had to. This has resulted in an unswerving regular ity of Irregularity. It has saved me sound, but It would Injure another per eon. "in the matter of diet —which is an other main thing— I have been persist ently strict In sticking to the things which did not agree with me until one or the other of us got the best of it. TTntll lately I got the best of it myself. But last spring I stopped frolicking with mince pie after midnight; up to then I had always believed it was not loaded. For thirty years I have taken coffee and bread at 8 in the morning, and no bite or sup till 7:30 In the even - lug. Eleven hours. That is all right for me, and is wholesome, because I have never had a headache in my lift. '.'hut headachy peonle would not reach ' aty comfortably by that road, and V^they would be foolish to try it. Never 8mokes in 8leep. "I have made it a rule never to smoke Mire, than one cigar af .a time. I have ej^fio other restriction as'regards smok ing, I do not knpw Jufit When I began to smoke ; I only know that it was in my father's lifetime and that tt was discreet.

But it wan not on ran only to nhow off. It to pulverise those critics who nald 1 eras a slave to my habits and could not break my bonds. "AS for drinking, I have no rule about that.

Humor and Philosophy By DUNCAN N. SMITH PERT PARAGRAPHS. In modern parlance an artist is one who makes good at liis calling, from a photographer down to a pickpocket. How far a dollar will go may depend on how far it is to the nearest bargain counter. Your own boy is mischievous, and your neighbor's boy is downright bad, but a stranger couldn't tell the differ ence between them. When you don't feel like talking, bun! up the nearest woman. Some people are so rapid that their sins will never catch up with them to Qnd them out. With some people home is a place where they turn in for repairs. When two souls have but a single thought that thought is apt to be re garding the probable cost of the fur niture. A mistake is one of the few things you can make without trying. Wheu a man is too polite you In stinctively wonder if it is mining stock or life Insurance he is going to spring on you. In the days when torture was prac ticed they had to use crude Instru ments because the piano In the next flat had not been Invented. Takes It Seriously. Judging From Experience. "Willie, what does it mean when It ■ays, 'He was gathered to his fa thers?' " "I guess it means where his fathei takes a skate strap and calls a kid back into the wood shed." Not a Superstition, "Do you consider Friday an unlucky day?" "Sure; I know It is. The stores ad vertise bargains on that day, and my wife always comes home broke." Might Accept lb "He is out looking for an honest dol lar." "But I notice he glances around oc casionally to see if one of the other kind Is trying to flirt with him." Promoted. Where is the noble woman Who used to sit and sew And make things for the heathen. Back In the long ago? Alas, she's dropped her knitting And joined the woman's club. And hands advice to statesmen. While men still rustle grub! The Autumn Stunt Against the dull November aklee The red and yellow leaves are falling. And Phyllis to the forest hies. For nature to her heart 1« calling. Her mission, all the world may know, With just a very little guessing. Is where the colors brightest glow To gather autumn leaves for pressing. In walking skirt and shirt waist whits And boots her shapely ankle fitting. Just like an airy fairy eprlte. Adown the woodlands she goes flitting; No hint of autumn in her eyes Nor in her step that lightly crushes The twig that in her pathway lies. For spring alone is in her blushes. And so among the trees she goes. Around her sunshine gayly spilling, For what use goodness only knows Her dainty little basket filling. For at her home, it's safe to say. Unless the ragman lately bought 'em. That haven't yet been thrown away, Are pretty leaves she picked last at» tumn. Needed Tools. "And this is what you call choice country board?" "It Is." "Sorry I did not bring along my rip saw." Same Idea. "They are not making wooden nut megs any more In Connecticut" "No; they are devoting their spare time to raising Havana tobacco." Too Realistic. Wo weave about a pretty girl Romantic fandet from our pen. But when we see her feed her face We quickly fall to earth again. Common Failing. "He claims to hnve conquered all so perstitlons."

McBRIDE, Gen. Agt 124 3d SL, Portland. Or. Suppressing News by Courts. American Press. A week before the beginning of the trial of defendants in the famous suit case tragedy in Boston Judge Stevens summoned the representatives of the Boston press and issued a statement of his views as to how newspapers should handle the case. Calling atten tion to an article which he said had "a tendency to prejudice both the case of the commonwealth and the case of the defendants" and emphasizing the importance of securing a fair and Im partial jury, he said; "Hereafter newspapers should not publish news or make any comment upon this case. They should publish no news whatever about the case until the trial, when, of course, they have a perfect right to publish the proceed ings. I give this notice now so that hereafter the newspapers may govern themselves accordingly." If our memory Is right In this matter it was the newspapers which ran down the clews In this case of the suit case and made it possible to bring the ac «used to trial. That they should be stopped from printing further news on the subject seems a little unreasonable, to say the least of it. We fall to see how the publication of news in the case confined to actual facts would do in justice to either side. Opinions in such a case should of course be withheld since it is not the province of news papers to try cases which will come up In the courts. We do not forget the difficulty of obtaining good juries in such cases. Men shirk Jury duty on the plea of prejudice caused by reading newspaper accounts o7 crime, but they would doubtless find some other excuse, as opposed to capital punishment, for in stance. The laws with which the writer Is familiar admit prejudice only when caused from having seen a crime committed or having heard sworn evi dence In the case. Newspapers should not be made to suffer the shortcomings of cltisens who are trying to avoid one of their most important duties. To Cure a Cold In One Day xx. Oft every box. 25c.
