I am told that a 10 note will buy a
man's life In London, that any unsus
picious person can fall Into the
Thames on a dark night, or break his
neck Kolng round a slippery, dark cor
ner, or full under a van, If a little bit
of crisp patter change,, hands, says the
London Sketch. I know that a very
distinguished playwright, wishing to
work out the plot of a melodrama,
went into a hlgh-claus den of thieves,
made friends with some of the lead
ers, and unfolded to them as soine
thliiK be wished) to put Into execution
the plan he had devised for his vil
lain's action. Ho told his listeners
thai there was a very important finan
cier he wanted out of the way for 4S
hours while he played the very dick
ens with the exchange with the stocks
the financier controlled. He stiKRcsted
to his listeners that an attractive lady
and a yacht would be tho simplest
means of Insuring thla object. His
hearers concurred. They knew the
very yacht for the purpoee; a skipper
and a crow could easily be producud;
and concerni-.ig the lady there would
be no difficulty whatever. "Then,
after the 48 hours, we will of course,
bring him back," said the dramatist
brlithtly, tlilukltiR of his fourth act.
A cloud came over tho faces of his
audience. "Well, Ruv'ner. of course,
If you wish tt; but it would save such
a lot of queHllons being aHked If he

from th stage, InclosInK a square
space that was used for a flsh pond, j
Hocks and ferns were grouped along '
the edge of the stage, the floor was
covered with green carpet, and a pret-'
ty meadow scene painted on roars
cotton was hung at the back of the
stage, making a very picturesque set-!
ting for the pond, says the Cooking
School Magazine. Steps led up to the
bridge, and at tbe foot was a rustic
lodge, where, on payment of a fee,
the prospective fisher was given a
pole and a circle of cardboard, upon
which was marked the number of
times he was entitled to flsh. Thus
equipped, he went up on the bridge
and fished in the pond. Tickets were
also sold by the bridge keepers. Re
freshments were served, nnd there
were cunily and cake tables and two
stalls where fancy articles were sold.
One of these Btulls bore tho sign,
"Fish Market." Here flsh of many
brllllurit colors and quaint shapes
wore for sale; there were blotters,
shaving cases, pin rnsli l.i h and
sachet Iiorh. On the cake table were
ninny toothsome fishes chocolate and
clear candy fishes snd boxes of candy
decorated with water color and pen
und Ink sketches, also sandwiches cut
out with flsh-shapeii tin cutters, tilso
rookies and small Iced cakes. At In

given for variety.
