Just Newspaper lleadHnM Mum bling From Force of Habit. 1'lie young man with the haggard look sat in the rear car of an elevated train, staring and staring at one of the advertisements. "English beauty shoos." he mumbled to his companion. "That's what he Bays." "l"es," said the other, "but that's too short." "Hm, lim," the haggard man replied. "Beautiful shoes from England"— "That won't fit. It's long," was the curt reply. "Well, then, 'Beautiful English shoes' "That's only three words. You've got to have four, you know." "That's so. that's so. Ah, I have it!" he cried so loud that all the other pas sengers in the ear gave a jump. 'Eng lish shoes of beauty,' 23 letters aud spaces at last." A compassionate old man looked up from his newspaper. "What's the matter with your friend?" he asked. "Is the cfcap suf fering from delirium tremens?" "Oh. no." the mani addressed replied asstiringly. "You see, he's just through with his night's work on a morning newspaper. He's a headline writer, you know, and after a fellow has scrib bled off headlines of 23 letters and spaces for about eight hours steady he contracts that habit and can't get over it. Every advertisement, every scrap of paper he sees for several hours aft erward until his mind gets rested— well, he begins to count the letters and spaces and turn the wording into a headline that will fit. It isn't exactly delirium tremens. It's something worse. The headlines of 23 letters and spaces go wriggling around in that poor over worked brain much worse than snakes."—Chicago Chronicle. MILTON RELICS AT HARVARD Signature In an Autograph Albnm and the Poet's Copy ot "Pindar." The Harvard library numbers among Its treasures an autograph of Milton and a copy of "Pindar" annotated in Milton's own handwriting, with mar ginal notes in Greek and Latin. Botli of these rarities were bequeathed to the university by Charles Sumner. The "Pindar" is dated 1020 and was doubtless used by Milton during his stay at Cambridge university. At the end he has added an alphabetical index in manuscript, occupying two closely written pages of all the authors cited in his notes, with references to the pages in which their names occur. Milton's autograph is found in the pages of an autograph album or visit ors' book kept, according to a custom common in the sixteenth century, by a Neapolitan nobleman, Camillus Car doyn by name, who resided in Geneva from 1G0S to 1640, where Milton, ap parently, visited bim. Another auto graph in this same album among the hundreds which it contains is that of Thomas Wentworth, the unfortunate Earl'of Stafford. Milton's signature is dated Jan. 10, 1G39, and Is appended to a Latin motto—"Travel changes one's sky, but not one's mind," it may be freely rendered and a quotation from his own "Comus:" "If Vertue feeble were, Heaven itselfe would stoope to her." The most notable Milton manuscript known to exist Is a little book now owned by Trinity college, Cambridge, England, which contains the poet's copies of his so called minor poems, in cluding "L*Allegro" and "II Pensero so." In this country, however, it is said that the only original memorials of the great author of "Paradise Lost" are to be found iu these two time stain ed volumes in the possession of the Harvard library.
