BLUM MEANT WELL He Was Only Living Up te the Rules of His Club. Under the second empire bores wars so rampant that a sort of society oi dub was formed to tight them nnder the name of the “Rachat dee CapUfs." It was a mutual aid society, every member of which was bo nod to come to the rescue of any other in the clutch es of a buttonholing bore. The signal of distress was given by unobtrusively scratching the side of one’s uose, and a colleague on seeing this was expected to intervene and deliver his friend from captivity. The society was so useful and so pop ular-even humanitarian, it may be said —that it flourished exceedingly for many years and grew rich in members and subscriptions. Among its mem bers was the veteran journalist Ernest Blum, who, however, was rather clum sy at his work. He used to relate the following story: “One day in passing the Gymnass 1 saw two men talking. 1 knew one of them and took off my hat to him, whereupon he at once scratched his nose. “I, of course, thought, be was a mem ber of the club in distress whom I ought to deliver, so approached and. not knowing what to say, cried out: ’My dear X., I am delighted to meet you. I have an important piece of news to tell you. Allow me?’ taming to the other man. ‘Certainly,’ replied this gentleman. 1 took my comrade aside, saying: ’You know 1 have noth ing at all to tell you. I only wanted to rescue you. That Is all.’ ’Rescue me from what?' ‘Why. from the bore.* ‘What bore?* *Tbe man you were talk ing to. naturally.' ‘But he is my fa ther.’ " Poor Blum had chanced upon some body who was not a member of the so ciety and who had merely scratched bis nose absently or because he wanted to. which may happen to any man.— Paris Annales. Pitted Par the Part. When a new member of tbs Irish bouse of commons made bis first speech. Sir William Osborne asked who he was. and being told he replied: “Well. I think he will do.

On Thanksgiving (lay a number of years ago the late Frederic Remington was in London, his first visit to Eng land. where he announced to his friends he intended to “have a real vacation, away from mustangs and Indians.” As a tribute to the noted artist, American residents in London joined in arrang* lng a splendid Thanksgiving feast. Remington, of coarse, to be the guest of honor. The chsf of the Hotel was told to spare no expense In obtain ing fat gobblers.' bluepolnts, sweet po tatoes and other trimmings tor the genuine old time dinner. Not a hitch occurred to mar the oc casion excepting that Remington failed to turn up. While London was raked fore and aft for the celebrated artist the guests politely waited, waited un til their stomachs quaked and their mouths watered for the luscious tur key. Late that night, when the feast was long since despoiled, one of the guests wandered into Buffalo Bill's wild west show at Earl’s court Rem ington sat there drawing. “Do not disturb him," ordered Colo nel Cody. “He’s getting some good local color from these Creek Indians.

A well knowu doctor and a certain minister are great friends, but they dearly love a joke at each other’s ex pense.

Not “X MAD HIM Oil THB FLAT OF HIS BACK.” long afterward the minister's bouse was entered by a burglar. He gave a graphic account of the affair to bis friend, the doctor, and ended by say ing: “I had him on the flat of his back.
