For my thorough appreciation of a lan?e and gool dinner I am, I believe, indebted to my father. He was a great diner, and it i well known that the fin est qualities of the English race are her editary. My f ither suffered from gout, and the doctors who are a mass of prej ndicrs, tell me that I also have got it. However, I a:n thankful to saythatl know my cto constitution. What is really the master with me is a sort of cold accompanied hy inflammation in one toe. It i rises, 1 should say, from overwork. Old port is good for it. A fine appreciation of dinner should be accompan ed by a large income. When my futher died of apoplexy (brought on by a quarrel with his cook, who was a fair instance of talent as dis tinct from g. nius), 1 snca-eded to his position in the firm, and to an income which even ir the city is considered to be fairly large . I love largeness. I love large incomes, large houses, large appe tites, large Wi.istcoats. large dinners. I can never le t x thankful that I can well afford large d nners. It was alwavs my ambition to 1, like my father, a'great diner, and it would tie but false humility to say that I shall die without having earned the reputation. I distinguish ln'tweei the diner and the diner out. I do not want to lie un charitable, hr.t I have no high opinion of the diner out lie does not, as a rule take the (iinn.T itself quite seriously. He is liable M show an interet in the women whom he takes in or in the con versation. Now. life is too short for that division of interests; wo only have time to do one thing well. Let dinner be that one tiling. I say, dine merely dine. That is enough. Do that well, and you have the best delight that this world can g re you. As for conversa tion, I despi.-o ir.

But I am not unduly devoted to wine. Indeed I bc metimes wonder whether I am more fo:id of that or of the solid part of the dinner. Both are good, lioth bring out all that is best in a man. The feeling of gratitude, for instance, is com mendable. It is impossible to think much about the commonest viands as paragus, the simple oyster, or even a cut from a perf ?ct saddle of mutton with out feeling grateful.

But if I were to defer mv decision until the evening I should very likely confine myself to fining him a week's salary.

It is all very well to feel kindli ness, but one has to lie careful that tho feeling shall not influence one's actions. now inseparable from our dearest de lights are our deepest sorrows! I have but one serious affliction, the great soup the soup of the city has not a real at traction fur me.

Modern Method IiiBVr I rnru tlse ( untomi of Mcrchunts f Ct her Day. In tho good old times of proverbial honesty, which wa? us much account in the transactive of lnwtuss as was tho eessary cash for c:i p'.t il, t he merchant's Word was as good as his bend. In this progr.'ssive age i: is different. A type written letter is t l' no more value in a business transai "ion than would be the testimony of an idiot in a court of law : r the meandering utterances of a trance n;'-di'.:m before the faculty of Harvard ct Ih-gn. Shielded behind the progressive barrier of civilization, cheek takes the place of capital, and the integrity of old time merchant princes, as Lawrence, Appleton. Sears and other honored names are not essential or apparent in modern bnsiness methods. Transactions of any magnitude, in r.ny line, can be carried on by the aid of a typewriter, as in most cases the ojierator ran furnish brains enough f r t he prin cipal, with or without capital. If all goes well and the prospects are serene, typewriting counts; if otherwise, this merchant can disclaim the entire trans action and ignore any responsibility for the machine. The decadence (if simple honesty is greatly to bo lamented. We have in mind at the moment of writing a case in point of peculiar hardship. An honored gentleman, a helpless cripple, conceived a business plan which promised success ful results. The plan was submitted to a firm rated high in the mercantile agencies and n still higher position in public favor. It was eagerly accepted und cordially indorsed at every point, and all assistance promised to make it a permanent success to the mutual advan tage of all parties concerned. All corre spondence was favorable, and the pro jector launched his enterprise at a heavy outlay of time and capital, only to be abandoned at this moment by this hon orable firm and denounced by them as assuming their sanction and support, which they deny in toto. This support and indorsement being entirely by type writer, the victim finds himself in greater "distress in mind, body and estate" than before this venture, but without any legal redress. Melrose (Mass.) Tleporter. "Vankce liootllc." The tune of "Yankee Doodle" has had seven or eight treatises written upon it in the last years, ascribing it to vari ous dates and origins, even back to The Netherlands aud the days of Cromwell and the Charleses. Dr. George Grove of London, author of the "Dictionary of Music and Musicians." has investigated thoroughly the various musical libraries and the British museum in England, finding no traces of it whatever, thus ex ploding all the mystical, traditional and apochryphal accounts thereof. But "Y an nee Doodle had an origin and has a history. It was written by Dr. Richard Schuchburg, whose com mission dates 1737, in the French and Indian war of 1755 under General Jef frey Amherst and was intended as a "take off" on the "rag, tag and bobtail" recruits of the colonies that came into the army. It "took" so well, however, that the Americans have ever adopted it and would not part with it for anything. The first words, Father and I went down to camp, were in the Boston Journal in 1768, and the first record of the tune is in Arnold's "Two to One," 1780, so that "Yankee Doodle," although written by a Briti; h surgeon, is really American.

A Story That Show What a Terrible Af- , Miction the TMRcase of Unprofitable In- gonuity May He Two Evenings In the House of an Inventor. Had it nc been that my family went out of town a -iort time ago and left me homeless and despondent, I would, never have been able to write this story. As it was I was won over by the entreaties of a friend and went to live with him and his little family for awhile. It pleases me to meet geniuses. I like to touch shoulders with men of ideas, and that is just what this friend of mine might be labeled a man of ideas. I did not know it before I went to his house, but then I discovered he is an inventor. What he invents is immaterial; suf fice it to say he invents in the full sense of the word. If he works out an idea, and when the model is perfected it doesn't do what he thought it would, he makes it do something else. It's a double back action style of in venting that is destined to fill long felt wants or leave an aching void. The in ventor is not to blame for either of these happenings, his business being exclu sively to invent. Wo were sitting in his dining room the first evening I was at his house. The servant had just cleared the dinner table, and my friend's wife was looking after the youngsters and keeping their nurse out of mischief. George was looking intently at one of the gas tips, and his brain machinery was grinding exceeding fine material, I could see. "Well, what is it?" I asked, looking up and around for a stray June bug or some other bird of plumage. "I'm just thinking," George said rather dreamily. "I can improve on that gas tip. I'll Co it. I've got it sure." Then he began drawing things on a piece of paper that looked like deformed church steeples. He said they were gas tips. For a day or two George ate very lit tle. 1 afterward learned this is com mon with inventors, as they are able to go for weeks at a time without touching a morsel. Their brains stop working when tlu-ir ownt r t ais. There's no mon ey in eating -.cept for the dealers in edibles. When George came back to earth and food, he had a model in his pocket. It was the taugible outcome of his think ing. "Isn't that splendid:-'' lie said,, with ecstasy, holding it up before me. His black eyes glistened. "Yes. it's very pretty," I replied. "Will it work?" "Yon bet it'll work. The user will get a large and steady flame, with no waste of gas and with one-third the usual pressure. I'll show you." George got up and adjusted it to the chandelier. He got out matches and then turned out the remaining gas jet. Fully 34 matches were struck while we sat in the dark. I held my breath be cause my hold on solemnity befitting the occasion was fast loosing. He said many things which I could not lie led to repeat. The sanctity of a private home should not be invaded. It was his right to say things, as lit paid the rent. The thing did not work. I could see that, even though it was dark. He re lighted the gas and sat down. You can never tell what an inventor is going to do, so I said nothing. Oh. I believe I did ask him if there was an opening in the end for the gas t ooze through. I'm not sure, though, but I know George didn't answer. He finally secured a couple of feet of small rubber hose that he had used in another experiment and fastened the gas tip on one end. He thought perhaps there was an obstruction that water would clear away. The other end of the hose he attached to a faucet. I stood by like any well behaved in vited piest. George turned the water, and it shot through in first rate shape. The fact was the gas tip was a splendid sprinkler. Even George's wife acknowl edged that, and she gave up acknowledg ing anything but his inventive failures years ago. "By gracious!'' George exclaimed, "isn't that a dandy sprinkler? I'll get that patented." Then he laid it down. It was the next evening George's wife said that her exjw-nsive music box was out of order and would not play. The valuable instrument was put on the ta ble, and George jieered iuto it for about five minutes. "Xo wonder: I see what's the matter," George remarked as he left the room. He returned with four or five imple ments that for all I know belonged to a kitchen range. He unfastened a couple of screws and then yes, and then! The case was full of snarled up springs, things that looked like comb teeth and various odds and ends that one would never suspect hav ing been within 10 miles of the house a minute before. Tears ran down the cheeks of George's wife and dropped in on the cylinders. "What are you trying to do spoil and rust the works?' George asked. Then he dickered and dickered until he had about a bushel of pieces of machinery strewn about. George's wife retired, and I fell asleep on a lounge. My host worked until 6 o'clock in the morning and then gave it np. I left the next day. It was impossible for me to remain longer in the house with George's inventive brain. It fairly crowded me out. The music box is now in Geneva being fixed, the gas tip Eprin kler keeps papers from flying about, and George is working on something that can be used as a self adjusting car coup ler or a 6eltzer water siphon.
