PECULIAR IDEAS OF AUTHORS.
Varying Conditions Under Which the
World's Great Writers Did Their
Alexander Pope, who was the liter
ary pontiff of his time, thought best
when In bed. Whenever a thought
came lo him he would JoMt down on a
scrap of papor. His servant often
found bedclothes nnd floor covered
with white bits containing aphorisms
which have now become hackneyed
Victor Hugo wrote "Lea Miserables"
standing up, nn attltudo which Haw
thorne also nssumed when he wrote
many of his romances.
One leg thrown over the arm of a
chair or sitting on tho arm of his sec
retary's chair were Napoleon's favor
ite positions whllo dictating to Bour
rlenne, a position which he varied now
and then by patting that scribo on the
head or pulling hla ears.
Sir Walter Scott could while reclin
ing on a lounge dictate to two amanu
enses, who frequently had to stop writ
ing, so funny the dictated passages
seemed to them.
William Morris made one of his fa
mous translations from tho Greek
while riding on the steam cars. Walt
, Whitman and Horace Traubel, original
in an tninga, were most original In tho
position they took while thinking.
They were wont, so Mr. Traubel says,
to climfr upon a pile of lumber and He
down upon their backs. In that way
each found but what the other's best
Coming Down Easy.
Inquiries after 'the welfare of Pat
rick Conroy wore answered by his
devoted friend, Terence Dolan, who
was at the Conroy's in tho double ca
pacity of nurse and cook. "No, he's
not dangerously hurt at all," was Mr.
Dolan'a reply to a solemnly whis
pered question at the door.
"We heard he had a bad fall and
was all broke to pieces," whispered
M,TIs a big story you've heard,"
said Mr. Dolan, In his cheerful roar.
"Thrue, he fell off'n tho roof o' tho
Brady stables, where he was shingling
and he broko his lift leg, knocked out
a couple of teeth and broke bis collar
bone. "Mind ye, It he'd have fell clear to
the ground it might have hurted him
bad, but sure there was a big pllo of
shtones and old lumber that broko his
fall." Youth's Companion.
Be Amiable and Retain Youth.
Ab a charming woman onco said:
"To remain always young ono must
be always amlable." A melancholy
face, a sullen, an evil look, Is like com
ing in contact with winter; whereas a
sereno faco, a gracious air, a kind and
good expression, Is like a spring day,
and a smilo on the lips like Its sun
shine. Sulky people, you may have
remarked, always appear to be ten
years older than they are. The face
grows wrinkled from contracting the
brows; the mouth projects disagree
ably when sulking. Behold beside tho
portrait of the sullen woman the plc-L
iuiu ui uiu unvui uiiu kthlioub woman;
all her features are In repose, her lips
form an adorable Cupid's bow, kind
ness softens her glance and goodness
illuminates her brow. Perhaps she Is
tho elder, but she will always appear
young and charming.
The lll-Natured Man.
The ill-natured man, though but of
equal parts with tho good-natured
man, gives himself a larger field to
expatiate In. He exposes thoso fall
ings in human nature which the oth
er would cast a wall over; laughs at
vices which the other either excuses
or conceals; falls indifferently upon
friends or enemies; exposes the pop
son who has obliged blm; and, In
,short, sticks at nothing that may es
tablish bis character of a wit.
