American Manner Different.
The Englishman, the Frenchman and
the American all think each other ex
tremely bad mannered. The French
man resents the manners of the Eng
lishman and tolerates the crudities of
the American. The Englishman has a
contempt for the manners of both the
French and the American, and the
American comes to Europe humbly
thinking that his manners are prob
ably the worst and willing to learn,
only to find that they are as good as
the French or English manners, but
very different. Milwaukee Journal.

copper seems to be negligible in com
