(.»jifi m ISM HII Af'toi 1 LHiintM* ?$pt;j»ki'r. A?, an ul'ter dinner speaker the <n;i- jieror no superior in Germany. H« speak* readily without notes, expresses himself with vigor, never descenda to conventional commonplaces, and, above till, gives the very best assurance that his words are not prepared for him. I have beard conspicuous speakers in Bug- hmd ntid in our own country, and. H comparisons aro not in this case invidious, I should say that the German emperor need not fear to meet sucb an audience as even a New England society dinner assembles. One of the prettiest speeches 1 have listened to was delivered by the emperor in answering the toast to his wife in the province where she was born. It was during the great combined naval and military maneuvers of 1890, at which the United States was represented by Commander Ward, and Great Britain by Admiral Hornby. The emperor's words were: "I desire to express to you, my dearest sir, tho gratitude felt by the empress and myself for the kind words we have just heard. At the same time our thanks to the whole for the day we have passed and for the reception which the province has prepared for us. This day was, however, not needed in order to assure us of the warm friendship we have found here. "The bond that unites me to this province and chains ine to her in a manner different from all others of my empire is the jewel that sparkles at my side, her majesty the empress. Sprung from this soil, the type of the various virtues of a German princess, it is to her that I owe it if I am able to meet the severe labors of my office with a happy spirit and make head against them." The words of tho emperor were unexpected, and to no one more so than to his wife, whose face beamed with happiness at the compliment she so publicly received. Nor did any one who listened to the speaker at that dinner think to question tho spontaneity and honesty of the language. — Poultney Bigelow ia Century. T\vo Romarknblo Hturvlages. Among the romances of the last century ia handed down one of a certain nobleman who was making ready for his wedding ceremony with the lady of his choice when he learned from a frightened messenger that the lady had eloped with another lover. Not at all disconcerted, he coolly continued his toilet, and when id was completed he asked his houansbeeper which ouo of his servants was without that excellent thing in life a lover. Learning that the kitchen maid was tho only oue, he sent for her, bade her don her Sunday frock, persuaded her to accompany Iwm to the the church at the time appointed for his wedding, and brought the simple country maiden back a peeress of the realm. The marriage turned out very happily, like tho more recent mariago of an English gentleman in New York, who found a young emigrant girl of his own nationality who had missed her friends and was alone in the street. Ho asked her after a, few moments' conversation if she had come to America to find a husband, and when sha answered coyly in tho affirmative ho took her to the nearest church, anil thoy wero wedded, and are, according to the latest reports, happy together.—New York Sun. A Mull AVIu> Palms Things. Two gentlemen, shook hands in the street a day or two ago, and as they unclasped their hands a small wad of paper fell to the sidewalk. "What is this;" said one of the men, stooping to pick up the wad. "Oh, that is my five dollar bill," Bakl the other man. "I made a ball of it and palmed it when 1 left the house in order that 1 would not forget to stop in at my grocer's and pay a bill. But I forgot all about the confounded thing." "Do you mean to say that you have carried that wad in the palm of your hand for an hour or two without realizing that it was there?" "Cortainly; 1 frequently carry small articles in the palm of my hand for several hours. They never fall out, and they don't bother me. 1 learned the trick of palming when I was a boy, and 1 have practiced it ever since. I can palm half a dozen coins at the same time aud retain them concealed in my hand all day if 1 want to. "1 can eat my dinner, smoke a cigar, read a paper, and do almost everything, except shake hands, without disturbing the palmed coins. I find the palming knack very useful sometimes, particularly when I want to conceal any small articla temporarily."—New York Times.
