.^WPnV' m W: fHtlft LlftLE 6AME, 1 &3okt en tlii iottUiiip, bat fie fcih*d It. A Certain Englishman, whotnaybeknown ' ai fc6*d C—, wa« visiting an American 6Hy where society received him with open ***» At the 6*me tline that It acknowl- ,-J in prlTftte the extreme difficulty It id In entertaining him. Hid lordship „ -nltf not talk j perhaps he could not. At Any rate he showed Very little interest In in6st topics of conversation, and seemed deplorably obtuse to the point of a good Story. Only one person, a brilliant woman named Mrs, A*—-, had the least success In Wflking him to a semblance of conversational life, and she was consequently saddled With the task of amusing him at whatever gathering they appeared. "1/ord C— will take you out to dinner," Jny dear," her hostess Would whisper. "Now do your best to amuse him, won't you, for ! do want the dinner to be a success, and his long silences are so depressing!" At first the situation was rather amusing to the victim so constantly laid on the block Of conversation, but there came a time when she was heartily tired of it, and frankly acknowledged to herself that she was "talked out." Time Went on, however, as time has a way of doing, and one evening came the farewell dinner to Lord C . He was to leave town the next morning, and his host- esfe sought out his entertainer with the well worn request: "N6W do make him talk, dear. He will Sit beside you as usual." But Mrs. A had a headache, and moreover her wits had deserted her,- She had talked of everything with this noncommittal man, from the house of lords to fox hunting, and she felt absolutely hope* less of finding another subject in which he might take even a fleeting interest. A bright idea occurred to her, and she said to him, in a low tone, as soon as they were seated at table: "I have a headache tonight, and it doesn't seem to me that I can talk. Yet we must say something or be thought very peculiar, BO I will turn to you and say in an animated tone, 'One—two—three?' You can reply, with great earnestness, 'Four—five- six!' "I will become argumentative and assert, •Seven—eight—nine—ten I' and you can gently contradict me by counting up to twenty. So we can continue for a whole evening, without having to exert ourselves to think." The idea struck the Englishman as being exceedingly funny, and the plan was forthwith carried out. The lady was animated, the gentleman amused. In fact, he broke into such guffaws of laughter that the rest > ef the table ceased talking to listen, but in Tain. Both were discreet, and at such crises counted in almost inaudible tones. After dinner, so delighted was Lord C- — with the game that he insisted on following his companion into a corner and playing it until 10 o'clock, when he left her exhausted but triumphant. He had no sooner gone than his hostess rushed over to Mrs.. A and exclaimed: "How did you do it? May I ask what loused him to such interest?" But the culprit shook her head seriously tCSd replied, "It was entirely confidential." The story was too good to keep, however, and she told it to several intimate friends. One of them, a young mun who did not know the Englishman in question, once repeated it in a Canadian household where he was a visitor. He did not scruple to set forth the Englishman's general obtuseness and density, and when ho had finished a gentleman whose name he had not caught said with quiet emphasis: "She may have been makinggame of me, but it was the pleasantest evening I ever spent in my life and I forgive her." It was Lord C , and the abashed young man could not help feeling that his lordship hod the better of it.—Youth's Companion. Business Sympathy. A bright printer's clerk who was instructed to write a letter of condolence to a firm, the head of which had recently died, did it in this way: "We are greatly pained to learn of the loss sustained by your house, and extend to you our heartiest sympathy. We notice that the circular you send us announcing Mr. -—'s death was lithographed in the provinces. We regret that you did not see your way clear to let us estimate for the work. The next time there is a bereavement in your house we shall be glad to quote for your printing, and are confident that we can give you better work at less cost than anybody else in the business. Hoping soon to hear from you, we remain, With profound sympathy, yours truly." There is something soothing in that last sentence.—Million. m mmm toss MOIND& ALGO^A, IOWA, WEB^BBAY, mvmmn i> isaa r—.
