AH Ihe order was accompanied by a medium sized piece of silver the wayfaring man had reason to expect a fairly finail me;il. And an to spoor] of delivery ho was not disappohMcd. In an Incredibly fihort lime tho nr'gro reappeared, bear- Ing aloft a tray on which sat five dlnhoH, remarkable only for their similarity of size and shape. When the tray was lowered snfllclenfly to bring the confents of tho dishes Into focus tho traveler saw his breakfast--fivo dishes of steaming oatmeal, accompanied by five miniature pitchers of cream. The negro beamed with satisfaction at the rapidity with which ho hnd executed the order.

MONOPOLIES AND RINGS. • Olden Time Schemes For Obtaining Wealth and Power. Tho evil of monopolies and rings was known to unclontH, Arlntotle referring to them In his "Politics," and then, o*< now, it was found necessary to hold them In chock by lotflnlfitlon. The rno- nrfjiollst was In Konmn hvw called a durihimirltis and punished under the Lr>x Jiilln rk- Annona. Monopolies of clothing, fish and all articles of food wore prolrSiIt.od hy the Emperor Xeno under pain of conHsontlon and exile, so thnt It in curtain that the rings of the ancient ditys were as mischievous as flie.v arc- now. At Athens a law limited Iho^imotint of com a rnnn might h'ly. Tho earliest recorded Instance we h.ivt; v.'as a corn ring. There Is an undent tradition that tho king who made .lo.soph his prime minister and com ml tied Into his hands the entire administration of Egypt was Apopl. Apopi was one of the shepherd kings and ruled over the whole of Egypt ns Joseph's philrnoh seems to have clone. The prime minister during seven yenrs of remarkable plenty bought tip every bushel of corn beyond the absolute needs of the Egyptians and stored it. During tho terrible famine that followed he was able to get his own price and bartered corn successively for the Egyptian money, cat- tlo and hind and, taking one-fifth for pharnoh, made him supremely wealthy. It was not merely a provident 'net, but « very politic- ono, his policy being to centrall/o power In the monarch's hands.—London Answers. Origin of Attar of Roses. Tho preparation of tho famous attar of roses, ar-c'.inllng to tho C'Ircle, seems to hiive boon discovered by aecldont From India wo get Iho tradition. Tho favorite Sultana of Solmnghir cf«r?eil n bnth of rosi'wiilor to bo prepare^! for hor use. Tho burning sun of India brought Its might upon the bath pre- pnrod In the royal garden and soon globules of oil were found floating upon tho fragrant water.

Tho finest os- flonco Is not gathered from the rarest and most costly (lowers, for the fragrant oil glands aro most abundant In tho potals of tho free blooming, olf, common kinds. Machiavelll.

An experleiir-j'd nutogrnph collector con almost tell to what profession a man belongs hy the grudglngness or: otherwise of his response. Actors and | vocalists sever demur. They rather seem to like It. Poets and authors of fir-lion accede, but with a certain cotrl dignity; metaphysicians aud philosophers either refuse altogether or comply with a bad grace; dramatists not only send their autographs, but a quo- tatloii from their works as well; peers sign, but with a stiff and formal hauteur; judges and barristers sign In such a way that It is not possible to squeeze an I. O. U. over the name. In fact, every class has—of course, with exceptions—Its own way of dealing with the Importunity of the autograph flend.—H. I. Jennings In Connoisseur. Social Lift Long Ago.
