The late Sarah Orne Jewett lived a great part of her life in South Berwick, and the quaint Maine char acters of her native town interested her profoundly. Miss Jewett, at the Mayflower club in Boston, once illustrated aptly the unreliable quality of old people's memories. "A young minister," she said, "born in South Berwick, was called in his maturity to one of the churches ot the town. Everybody welcomed him. He had been away nearly 30 years. And the oldest inhabitant's welcome was the warmest of all. "The oldest inhabitant, leaning oa his stick, said in a high, tremulous voice to the young man: " 'And you're Master Johnny Green ough! 'ow time do fly! Why, it seems only yesterday I traipsed in to the courthouse to see your poor old grand father hanged.' "Everybody looked shocked. So there was a blot on the Greenough family 'scutcheon, eh? But the young man said calmly: " 'My good old friend, your memory is partly right and partly wrong. My grandfather was murdered, not hanged. It was two brothers of the name of Alden who paid the penalty of his murder.' "'Well, that's what I said,' crowed the octogenarian. 'That's just what I said, ain't it? " SPOILED CARD SHARK'S GAME How "Pat" Sheedy, Famous Gambler, Fooled Trickster Who Thought He Had Easy Money. The greatest delight of "Pat" Sheedy, America's premier gambler, according to Henry Stewart of the Stewart-Peck Sand Company, was to "double cross" the crooked card sharks. Mr. Stewart and Sheedy' were old friends. "Sheedy once strolled into a tough, gambling resort in the west, where he was not known, and stood "watch ing the games," Mr. Stewart relates. "One of the dealers was 'spieling' to several countrymen and had about convinced them to. take a chance t his game. " 'I'll bet you two to one that. I caa shuffle the deck and cut the ace of hearts the first time he announced. " Til take $50 of that if you'll let me shuffle the cards Pat said. "The dealer agreed and the money was staked. The countrymen also made small bets. , . "'Are you satisfied?' the .deader asked when the cards were shuffled. 'The proposition is that I am to. cut the ace of hearts' the first cut s "Everyone agreed. Then the dealer he was a tough one whipped out a. big hunting knife and slashed the deck in two. "But he didn't take the' money: Sheedy had palmed the ace of hearts while shuffling the cards." t Looking Out for the Birds. ,w i' In some new houses which, have re cently been built at Knutsford in Che- , shire a very pretty idea has been car ried out to encourage the bird loving; propensities of the occupants. The idea is to have nesting places for our feathered friends. 'v A local writer says: "Instead of filling up the holes left by the scaf folding the architect had closed them. with a thin covering of stucco pierced with a round hole. The birds enter and build inside. Sometimes you may see a tiny step just below for the bird to alight on and a little cornice over the gap to keep out the rain." Other holes have also been purposely left in the brickwork for nests, and it is said that the birds understand 'it all perfectly. Country Life. Don't Ask for Sympathy. Elizabeth Stuart 'Phelps has always been characterized by overflowing sympathy for the unfortunate, espe cially the unfortunate sick; neverthe less writing in Harper's Bazar on sym pathy, she takes the point of view that it is a luxury all of us should learn to doo without. "Wei have come to recognize absolutely the limitations of human sympathy, and it is some thing to have learned where it can not follow us. After all, very few people in this world," observes Mrs. Phelps keenly, "are tender. Even among women the genuine quality is not common. Let us bs content to as sume sympathy in our friends. We shall not receive any less of It for be lieving in it." Taking No Chances. "Give me an egg phosphate," said the thirsty citizen of distinguished ap perance who took a seat at the soda fountain. "Moreover, make the drink before my very eyes." The white-clad attendant obeyed. He broke an egg into a glass, showed it to the inquiring one, and then poured it into the glass intended for the drink. Then3 he broke another egg, exposed it to view, and placed it in the final receptacle. "Everything's O. K.," said the In-, spector, "and you may proceed with-, the manufacture of my drink." . . From the Cynic. ' "Father," said little Rollo,' "what Is appendicitis?" "My son," answered the cynical par-T ent, "appendicitis is something that enables a good doctor to open up a ' man's" anatomy and remove .bis entire bank account" Richmond Evening Star.
