"On one of my cruises I had a big black West Indian in the crew," said a whaling captain. "One day, for some reason, he jumped overboard. The sea was a little rough, and it was quite awhile before we got the boats lowered, and we lost sight of him. But we pulled back a little way, and I soon saw him swimming with all his might, but in the opposite direction from the boat. 1 yelled to him, and when he saw he was discovered he made no further effort tc get away. . And where he was going it more than I know, for it all happened in midocean. We hauled him into tht boat and made for the ship. It was fom months before we made port, and yet in all that time Sandy, for that was his name, never spoke a word. No one on board could get a sound from him. "Sometimes he would lie down on the deck and seem to be asleep and some of the crew would slip up and stick bin. with a pin. At first he would twitch a little and then would not move at all. We made a bed for him down below and kept him away from a knife or othei weapon. You could tell him to take tht wheel and he would steer right enough, but if you asked him what course th* ship was making he was silent as tht grave. And when we made the first port he went ashore, and I never saw him again. But some of the crew said he regained his tongue on land and thought he had been 'playing' us all the time. But it was a strange case."—San Francisco Examiner. News About London Dudes, I wish to announce for the benefit solely of the youth who desires to be English, that the turning up of the trousers at the feet is quite the thing and indicative ol 'equally" weather in London; that it ii also quite the thing to be very slow, painfully slow, in speech, and that to betray interest in anything or anybody is a serious fault in the makeup. The advice to preserve on all occasions a fixed and stony gaze is trite and altogether unnecessary. I am quite well assured that the man who writes a book on how to be English, if he goes to his grave unwept, unhonored and unsung, will at least have made enough out of the work to defray the expenses of his burial. But I want to say that the thing above all others vis to have a small appetite, particularly at luncheon. In the near neighborhood of the city hall is a "hole in the wall," where many of our most successful lawyers take their midday bite—in some cases a most substantial bite. There was quite a gathering in this resort the other day at noon, when the very latest in London makeup arrived. Leisurely walking to the bar the "Londoner" drawled, "Waiter, give me a bit, just a bit, of toast and a glass of milk." In the silence that ensued upon this light demand, it is related that the waiter, in the excitement of the moment, buttered the toast and neglected to put waiter in the milk.—Washington News. ' Looked Too Worldly An Auburn man was rebuked for indulging in a pleasantry in a prayer meeting not long ago, but still daring spirits occasionally transgress in that way without being gridirwned. It is related at a recent parisk meeting in Richmond, Me,, to see about calling a pastor, a well known citizen prominent in church affairs took occasion to remark on the apparent indifference of church piembers to the object for which the meeting hacl been called. He ha4 hoped, heeeia, toeee the church. with much f egret that he noted theif ate fience. At the conclusion of the gfcntl & man's remarks a Woman In the congregation who had gfbwji Uneasy under his* criticism ventured to suggest that there was a fair representation of the ecclesiastical body Jsf eseht , indicating by ft wave of her hand several church members occupying seats In different parts of the For a moment it looked like a knockout In favor of the Woman, but the gea- tleman was equal to the occasion, and Straightening up he remarked with his usual gravity, "It Jnay be that our members look and appear so much like the World's people that 1 did not recognize them,"— Lewiston Journal Whittle*'* Hesitation. Here is a beautiful extract of one of Whittier'a letters to Elizabeth Stuart Phelps: I have just been reading Canon rat's sermons on the "Eternal Hope," and I agree with him in the title of one of them, that "Life is Worth Living," even if one can't sleep the biggest part of it away, Thee and I get more out of it, after all, than these sleek heade-1 folk who sleep o' night. I quite sympathize with thee in what thee say of the 'causes." Against all my natural inclinations I have been fighting for them half my life. "Woe is me, my motherl" I can say with the old prophet, "who has borne me, a man of strife and contention." I have suffered dreadfully from coarseness, self seeking, vanity and stupidity among associates, as well as from the coldness, open hostility, and, worst, the ridicule of the outside world; but I now see that it was best, and that I needed it all.—Century. Falling Memory. Leech was at his best as an entertainer in his own home. Dean Hole asked him one day, after Leech had given him a Selectable dinner at his lodgings in Scarborough, how he made such good champagne cup. "The ingredients," he replied, "of which this refreshing bever- ige is composed, and which is highly recommended by the faculty for officers going abroad and all other persons stopping at home, are champagne, ice and lerated water, but in consequence of advancing years, I always forget the seltzer."—Exchange. Be Wanted Some Experience. "Why did you arrest this man?" asked the judge sternly. "For practice," returned the policeman. 'I'm new on the force and I wanted to learn how, your honor."—Harper's Bazar. A Poet's Fancy. Wife of His Bosom—What a touching description of conjugal bliss you have given In that last novel of yours, George, dearl I wonder where on earth you gpt it from!— Mannlgfultiges. Her Only Chance. A.—Why does Mis3 Elderly go on the ice every time there is skating? B.—Because that's her only chance to see o man at her feet.—Texas Sittings. Worse Still.
