Us-Attoraey Oefleral Miljf.rwafe bofn and spent his early life in a small New Ifotk village. At the little schoolhouse where he first learned to read and play "hookey," siiya the Indianapolis Sentinel, there was a fellow pupil who, although about the same age as Mr. Millei 1 , was noted throughout the village tor' his pure cusseclness. That boy, according to Mr. Miller's statement,Would sit up of a-night to concoct some scheme to make the people of the town miserable. lie would shase tbe cows, stone the dogs and pips, put ropes across the path at night, set pirs on the seats at church and scare the wits out of all the old maids for a mile afound. Whenever any devilment was done it was laid at the door of this one boy, and usually correctly. At school he was a terror to all. Stubborn and defiant, there was no restraining 1 him, and the schoolmaster was in despair. One day he thought he would make a last effort to ireforin the boy by argu* inent, and he called him 'up to the desk. "Now, Tom," he began, "you are a bright fellow, but you are spoiling your future. Just think what yoti can make of yourself if you only behave yourself. Now, have you ever thought of whatsyou will do when you grow up to be a man?" The boy looked at him for •*. moment, and then, picking up a straw from the floor, he picked his teeth for a moment, as though in deep thought. "Yes," said he, "I Sowed I would drive a coach an' preach some." TALK AS YOU EAT. In Thl» Instance lour Topics Arc Choien ' for You. The latest fashionable fad is the conversation luncheon, which is not to be despised as an up-to-date mode of entertaining. Small tables are used, and at each 4«aest's plate besides the name card is placed the monu, with a topic of conversation written beside each course All conversation except that pertaining to the special subject is forbidden, and in many cases this restriction itself makes the luncheon a very jolly affair. At a recent conversation luncheon held at Newport the subjects chosen for conversation were as follows: With the iced bouillon the guests discussed the question: "Is the masculine idea of humor a sort of horse play?" The conversation with the fish treated entirely of "the new woman and the way in which ; she will clothe herself." The entree was eaten while bicycle tales were being told. With the salad was discussed the college-bred girl. Frozen fruits were eaten while the .conversation turned toward the weather, and the coffee was sipped during the intervals of a heated discussion for .and against woman suffrage..

Bucks county's opium joint is located on Finnhook fanr, about a mile west of Doylestown, the trial grounds of a well-known Philadelphia seedhouse, says tho Philadelphia Ledger. In one portion of the farm are several large beds of poppy plants, It is here the bees get drunk.
