Drive as slowly as you can, anti drive close to the crowd.” In a moment the hansom had wheel­ ed and was retracing its route past the street corner, where a mnseular look­ ing young fellow tvas handing ou^t un­ mounted photographs as rapidly as he could make change. Miss Gardner leau- m of the hansom and xed the f: slowly pa.ssed, but tlu'i-e was no inter­ ruption in the patter that helped dis­ pose of his wares. “Here you aA',” ho said as lie passed over a photograph and pocketed a ten cent piece; \Diana for a dime, and cheap at the price. No extra chai-ge for Venuses or Psyclies; one dime, 10 cents. Step up, gentlemen, and take your ijick.” The cab bad passed out of bearing now, and Miss Gardner sank back on her ctisliions. There ■was a vexed ex- pre.esion on ber p rettj' face as she mur­ mured, “How can grown up men be so That eveniug at 7 Gerald Corsey, iminaculato in evening dress, presented liiuisclf at the (Jardiier residence, where be was received by I’riscilla and ber fatber, tbe Hon.

Priscilla was In a maddening mood— so superior and dignilied, with a new touch of condescension In her voice. Could she have heard anything? A hot llusb rose to the man's forehead.

It was not an initiation; i t was just that I needed the money.” Priscilla gave a little exclamation and stared down at the bunch of vio­ lets that he had sent her that after­ noon. They must have cost—oh, so much! And he had needed the money! The look that she turned on Corsey was different from any that she had vouchsafed him that evening.

The other species are fat, flabby look­ ing customeivs, with fantastic markings of black and brown and many shades of gray. On an eel of this sort the skin appears to hang loose from tbe body, and wlreu disturbed tbe bead sweels like a puff adder’s. These eels seldom attain a greater length than three feet and love to locate in the crevices of a stone breakwater, from which they dart out inee.ssantly and make havoc among !iny scliool of small fry which may be innocently disporUng them­ selves within striking distance. These hooded cels have iieon known to haunt a particular spot for over a year. They are good eating, despite their unpre- posses.sing appearance. Fighters, of the sixtet century in London tbe solo method of extinguisliing fires was by means of contrivances known as “hand squirts.” Tlicse were usually made of brass, with a carrying capacity ranging from two to four (luarts of water. The two quart “squirts’’ were two and a hall feet in length, one and a half Inches in diameter at their largest part and but half an Inch at the nozzle. On each One man on each side grasped the while tbe nozzle was Immersed in a handle in one hand and the nozzle in the other, while tbe third man worked iston or plunger, drawing it out nozzle when the other pushed in the plunger, the skill of the former being employed In directing tbe stream of water upon the fire.

Of all literary toilers Balzac ivas cer­ tainly the most eccentric in his meth­ ods. At first be would ■write his novel in a few pages, hardly more than the plot. These would be sent to the print­ er, who would return the few printed columns of matter pasted into the cen­ ter of several large sheets. On this mar­ gin Balzac tvould work, sketching his characters, composing the dialogue and perhaps altering entirely the original plot of the book. For four or live times this process was repeated until at last the few columns had assumed the pro­ portions of a volume. This extraordi­ nary way of building .a book naturally ran away with a considerable share of the profits on the work.—Golden Penny.

Fine language, whether in a speech or book, he welcomes as an msthetic luxury and emotional stimulant, tlie fineness being of course proportioned to his degree of cultivation, for academicians have been found to own that some phrases, highly effective in their day, are only vulgar fustian.

If a man has overworked or has been under anj^ unusual strain or excitement or has worried a great deal .or has been for a while in a state of joy and elation—all of which require an expenditure of energy—he is very likely to have tbe blues and to be in low p ir its by way of reaction.

If a man takes one glass of whisky, tbe slight stimulus that he feels will be followed, as night follows day, by an exactly equivalent sinking of the spirits. If he has been tborouglily and gayly drunk, his recovery will be attended by cor­ responding melancholia and misery.
