WOULD BE NO DISTURBANCE.
Woman Merely Had Little Account to Settle with Husband. She was a middle aged colored wom an of muscular build, and as she stopped at one of the gates in the Union depot the other morning the of ficial took notice that she was greatly perturbed and breathing hard. “Madam, you seem to be excited,” he said, as she choked and gurgled and coughed. “Yes, sah. I does. I dun run mos’ all de way from de house, and I fell down fo’ times on de way. If I gits sight of dat pusson he will also be af flicted wid overexcitement —heaps of it.” “You have something under your shawl,” he said, as his eyes detected a bulge to the garment. “Yes, sah,” she replied, as she re moved and held up to view an old axe handle. “Dis am what will bring on dat overexcitement in case dat pusson shows up yere.” “Rut I can’t permit any violence or disturbance, madam.” “Oh, dere won't be no fussin’ aroun’. De pusson I done spoke of am my hus band. He’s done made up his mind to leave me fur another woman, and I 'spects ’em yere to take de train.” “And you won’t disturb the peace?” “Not at all, sah —no, sah. Dar won’t he no disturbance. When I git eyes on him I shall spit on my hands, grip dis yere handle and jump for him, and befo’ he comes to I'll have him home and all tucked in bed. No, sah —no disturbance ’cept dat I shall ax de people to stand back so dat I kin git a full swing of my arm to mash him!” —Chicago Daily News. “MANLY ART” IN FRANCE. Sport of Boxing Just Now Something of a Craze. Boxing has become quite the rage in Paris; the old savate, with its ef fective high kicking, has been dis carded for the “noble art” of Britain. But our lively neighbor the Gaul has always had a sneaking affection for a manly bout of fisticuffs a l’Anglais. When Owen Swift, the famous cham pion of the lightweights, took refuge in Paris after killing his opponent, Brighton Bill, in a prize fight, he was patronized by all the members of the French Jockey club. After a fierce battle at Charenton with Jack Adams, another pugilist of renown, Swift was arrested and brought before the Paris tribunal of correctional police on a charge of “having inflicted wounds oc casioning an incapacity to labor for less than 20 days.” Owen's description in his evidence, of the course of training which he had to go through had an amusing effect upon the young sporting swells of Paris. For months afterward these young exquisites might be seen going at their best pace along the streets and boulevards, muffled up to their eyes in sweaters and greatcoats, getting into condition for boxing.—T. P. O. of London. Too Much of a Good Thing. Arnold Daly had been invited to tell a story at a theatrical banquet in New York. “I always hate to tell a story,” he be ean, “because my listeners may have heard it before. What boredom that is for them, what agony for me. “It is like the case of a friend of mine. He is deaf, but tries to conceal his deafness. “And one night at a dinner the host told a story at which everybody roared and my deaf friend joined in and out roared the whole table, though in truth lie hadn’t heard a word. “ ‘That story,’ he began, ‘reminds me of another one— ’ “And then the poor fellow went on and told the very same yarn the host had repeated only a minute before.” THE WINSLOW N\AIL SFSFSFDS al Household Encyclopedia ot Medicine, Di& Sanitation, Hygiene, Physical Culture and Long Life |a ! 1 THE GREATEST THING IK LIFE 1 Health being flic greatest thing i:i life, it is astonishing that the one necessary reference work H 9 has not long ago ln e:i written, especially since the last generation has seen such revolutions in medi- I H cine, surgery and sanitation that no layman, an l scarcely any one ] hysician, can keep up with them. || H As a supplement to the physician’s work, :; a resource when a physician cannot be had, as an H raj educator in the art of lii'in /, the Home Library of Medicine has received the most enthusiastic recep- |j H tion ever accorde 1 a special encyclopedia. a | | 4,060 SETS WERE SOLD BEFORE PUBLICATION | B i Lefts re this physicians have discouraged such wonts, and H Contribu ors.
