WAGNER AND THE CABBY.
A Bit of Comedy Thst Won s Good Tip
SVrom tho Composer,
A story of Wagner kuown to very
few U brought to the light by the Vos
slsche Zeltuug. When the composer
was In a really merry mood, tbe right
niood for story telling, he used to say
that, being In Ilerlin on a very hot
summer's day and finding hlmaelf in
the lKuhofTsilatx, he summoned one
of the first class droshkles that were
still fairly numerous at that time and
told the driver where to go. Ills des
tination was at the very farthest point
of a district within which only tbe
lowest fare could be demandel.
It struck Wagner Immediately that
his driver was taking a very affecting
leave of one of bis fellows, as though
he were starting on a life or death
journey. "Goodby. William," he sold;
"we shan't see each other again for
a long time."
After the carrluge bad rattled on for
a good while It came suddenly to a
standstill. The driver got down from
his Ihix on the right hand side, opened
the rnirl.-ige door ai:d brnced it to
again: then he went round to tbe left
side and related the performniii-o.
cllinlxtl u on to bis bos and resumed
tbe Journey. At the end of the drive
Wagner nskrd blm what this dumb
cm in! x show meant. Tbe driver, with
a sly look, mode answer: "I just want
ed to bamboozle my old nag. lie would
never have lielleved that the whole
drive was for a minimum fare and
would have rcfuned to go on. But by
banging the doors I got him to imagine
that one fare had got out and another
Wagner laughed heartily over this
explanation, and the driver, in spite of
his greed, over which the composer
made very merty In his letters, real
ized the handsome tip on which be had
lieeu speculating. London Standard.

HOW MERCHANTS FOUGHT
TOWN'S CALAMITY TALK
Psychology Counts Mush Whan Pessi

"It's the psychology of the tbiog that

"You know how a slump will hit a
town once In awhUe for bo apparent
reason at all? That's juat Che way It

reason to be nothing at all. tie found
that at tbe time the taKk started tbe

it ever had done In the dull season.
And then be saw tbe psychology of
the calamity talk. Once seeing H. be

told them what be bad discovered.
I'or awhile there was trouble in mak

his plan, and they agreed to do aa be
