1 r and Baron Adolph Roth
A of Paris
1 Castellani had mans god to get
hold of a superb enameled ewer to
ether with the dish o n which it
stood He knew that Baron Adolph
had a fancy for objects of this kind
but he also knew that Rothschild
was never so carried away by his
fancy as to pay more than
t was rea
sonable for anything that pleased
him Castellani devised a bit of
The baron on arriving in Rome
visited Castellanis shop and was
shown the best things the dealer
had except the enameled dish and
ewer When everything else had
been inspected Castellani drew from
a hidden cupboarjl the dish but not
the ewer The baron was so pleased
with the dish that he agreed to buy
1w the lot of which it was a part for
one of the customs of the shop was
not to sell a rare specimen apart
from the group of which it formed
the principal object The baron paid
heavily for the whole lamenting
that there was no ewer to stand on
the dish and departed for Florence
There he was visited by an agent
who told him of an old lady who
wished Jo sell several beautiful ma
jolica pieces He visited her house
in the country and was disappointed
As the majolica lady seemingly cha
grined left the room to order re
freshments the baron saw through
the open door of a bedroom a ewer
covered by a glass shade on which
rested a wreath of immortelles
When the lady returned the baron
asked permission to examine the
ewer It was brought out and the
baron saw that the enamel was of
the same work as that of the dish
he had bought but he wished to be
certain that the foot of the ewer
a would fit into the hollow of the
f dish He inquired the price of the
I ewer and was told by the lady that
it was not for sale as it was the
only souvenir she possessed of her
The baron went back to his
rooms had the dish unpacked and
found that the foot of the ewer fit
ted it perfectly The next day the
baron sent the agent to offer the
old lady a princely sum for the
ewer He brought back a refusal to
sell But at last the widows scru
ples were overcome
Castellani with his Italian tun
a ning had planned the whole affair
The agent who called and the old
lady who was sentimental were his
aids in making the baron pay a
much larger sum than he would
have given had ewer and dish been
sold together The Italian shop
mans scheme had taken in one of
the most astute of business men
j Actifo and Overacting
It is u much simpler thing to
overact than to act declares a writ

Amateur on the Stage In this
connection he adds there is a good

of the chorus who had a very minor
part made his entrance in a most
exaggerated manner much to the
authors disgust
Please dont enter like that J7

A ant Parish Clerk With Little
JR yard Forth Dead
Unforiunately a very young cler
gyman came to the parish and then
John the parish clerk did just and
only just i what he liked A leading
dissenter had died and his wife had
named a day to the vicar for the
funeral One fine day in July the
funeral procession duly arrived and
the vicar advanced in full canon
icals to meet the corpse at the
churchyard gate To his amazement 1
the widow advanced toward him in
a perfect fury shaking her fist in
his face and shouting Do you call
this religion Wheres the gravier
Tis shameful to a poor lone widow
Wheres his gravie grave I tell
youThe vicar then for the first time
perceived that John the clerk was
missing and that no grave had been
prepared Upon inquiry he was told
that John was haymaking in the
park A messenger was dispatched
to bring him and shortly John ap
peared limping along with a prong
in his hand his shirt sleeves rolled
up to the elbow his coat upon his
arm and a large straw hat upon his
head He advanced with perfect
composure and when the vicar be
gan to say This is very disgraceful
John he replied
oubide a bit I sees what it be
You let me talk to she She knows
me and I knows she Then ad
dressing the widow he proceeded
Now I tell ye what it be You
listen to reason Now weve had
rain rain rain and now were got a
fine day we must make our hay
Now your corpsey he wont hurt
Comes a wet day taint no odds to
you You bring your umbrellas but
our hay d spile Now you take he
Home and listen to reason Your
old man hed a listened to reason
Hays a thing as can only be made
when tis fine Taint no odds to
corpseys whether tis wet or dry
So completely was the woman con
vinced by the irresistible logic of
Johns argument that she was com
pletely subdued and if the vicar had
not insisted upon some of the hay
makers being called in to dig the
grate the funeral would have turned
home againCornhill Magazine
Milk and Milking
Many people believe that milk is
ready made and stored in the udder
of the cow simply awaiting the
milker This impression is correct
ed by the statement of the well
known scientist John Burroughs
who says Most persons think that
giving down or holding up the milk
by the cow is a voluntary act In
fact they fancy that the udder is a
vessel filled with milk and that the
cow releases or withholds it just as
she chooses But the udder is a
manufactory It is filled with blood
from which the milk is manufac
tured while you milk This process
is controlled by the cows nefvous
system When she is excited or in
any way disturbed as by a ttranger
or by taking away her calf or an
other cause the process is arrested
and the milk will not flow The
nervous energy goes elsewhere The
whole process is as involuntary as is
digestion in man and is disturbed or
arrested in about the same way

Predisposition to Disease
Children are seldom born diseased
They may be born with a tendency
to disease because one or both par
ents are suffering from it As wo
know certain conditions favor the I
development of certain diseases
Place a child in conditions that have
produced disease in the parents and
the tendency will be to produce the
same disease in the child So we
sometimes find whole families die
of consumption or diphtheria or
something else not because the dis
ease was inherited or caught but
because the same conditions produce
the same result in all the cases

A lit ef Mind Rudini by the Fa
Mew Htrrmahn v
The late Alexander Herrmann al
ways went fixed for an impromptu
exhibition sai4 a man who was
once associated with the famous
magician and in the early part of
his career he would go to extraor
dinary pains to lay his fences long
in advance for startling effects In
that way ho was frequently able to
do things that seemed next door to
supernatural and the result was no
end of valuable advertising In later
years when he became celebrated
and systematic booming was no
longer necessary the old man as
we used to call him would often re
fer to these explojts and laugh heart
ily over the mystification they had
On one occasion to give you an
illustration of his patience and fore
thought he was in a popular resort
in a big city and chanced to notice
a bank book lying on a desk behind
the cigar counter The cover bore
a printed number which was in
plain sight and when he got out
side Herrmann made a memorandum
of it in his notebook together with
the address of the place There waF
not more than one chance in a hun
dred that the information would
ever be of any service to him and
he simply filed it away so to speak
for possible future reference
VeIl fully six months after
ward when he was playing a return
date in the city he piloted a party
of friends one day into this identi
cal resort and the proprietor who
was present was called up and in
troduced All hands sat down at a
table and as usual Herrmann was
urged to give an example of his
skill He performed several neat
tricks and remarking that he
would wind up with a little exhibi
tion of mind reading asked the
proprietor to think of some number
that could afterward be verified
Take the number of your bank
book he suggested if you remem
ber whatit is 1 dont recall it off
hand but I can easily find out said
the proprietor and going over to
his safe he unlocked an inside com
partment and privately inspected
the book All right he said when
he returned to the table 1 am
thinking of the number now
Herrmann took him by the
hand looked him in the eyes in hip
peculiarly impressive fashion and
said The number is 129063
Thais right gasped the safe pro
prietor in an awestruck voice He
was absolutely stupefied with amaze
ment and so for that matter were
the others in the party The fact
that the book had been locked in
the safe and the apparent impossi
bility of Herrmann knowing any
thing about it in advance made the
feat seem almost miraculous Ex
