Bays tlio Saturday Lvenlng Post, though ho may not always succeed- "Tho will Is to bo praised, though success bo wanting," says an old proverb. Tho following anocdoto shows the simple method a French stntesman used to control his temper, which was apt to tako tho bit in its mouth. Whon M. do Persigny was French Minister of tlio Interior, lie received a visit ono day from a friend, who. on Bonding up his name, was shown Into tho groat man'ii sanctum. A warm discussion nroso between tho'tn. feuddenlr an ushuv cut' r u And handed trie miui-.i'U" i.nole O opn ing it in, at once changed his ionc of voice, nnd assumed a qulot nnd urbano mnnnor. Puzzled as to tho contents of tho note, and tlio marked effect it had sud donly produced upon the minister, his friend cast a furtive glancoat it, whon, to his nstonishmont, ho porco ved that it was simply n pluln sheet of paper, without n scratch upon it! Moro pnzzjpd. tjinn ovor, tho gentle man, after a few minutes, took his leave, and pioceeded to interrogate tho usher, to whom bo wns woll known, for ho himscll had been Minister of tho Interior. "You liavo," said ho, "Just handed to tho minister a note, folded up, which had a most extraordinary effect upon him. Now, it was a plain shoot of papor, with nothing written upon it. And what did it moan?" "Sir.1" ropliod tho usher, "hero is tho explanation, which I must beg you to keep secret, for I do not wish to comp oiniso mysolf. My mnstcr Is very liable to loso his temper. "As ho hlm cli i awnro of Ills weak ness ho has ordered mo, ench timo that his voico is raised sutllciontly to bo audlblo in tlio anteroom, without doloy to placii a shoot of papor iu an onvolopo. and tako it to him.
