He became one of the most profligate
gamesters of the vicious days in which
he lived. Some of his finest displays In
debate were sandwiched between ex
citement such as would unnerve most
men who had no serious business on
hand. Walpole has given a glimpse of
a typical passage in this extraordinary
man's life. He had to take part In the
discussion on the thirty-nine artlcloa.in
parliament on a certain Thursday. He
had sat up playing hazard from Tues
day evening until 5 o'clock on Wednes
day afternoon. An hour before he had
recovered $00,000 that he had lost apd
by dinner time, which was 5 o'clock,
ended losing $53,000. On Thursday he
spoke in the debate, went to dinner at
past 11 at night; thence to a club,
where he drank till 7 the next morn

he won $u0,000, and between 3 and 4

Man is often blamed for driving to
extinction many sorts of beautiful
creatures, but the account Is far more
than balanced by the amount of good
he has done for those animals which
proved useful and could be tamed.
Take the -case of the bee. The bee
lives by Its tongue, with which organ
it Is able to extract the honey from
flowers. Now, a bee's tongue Is natu
rally nbout a twenty-fifth of an Inch
long. Clever beekeepers, by keeping only
those bees with naturally long tongues,
have succeeded in lengthening the
tongues of a number of bee colonies
to the extent of another hundredth of
an Inch. It does not sound much, but
it enables those Insects to do a quar

A Couple of the Celebrated Come
dlan'a Praetlcal Joke.
Many stories are told of Sothern's
original methods of entertaining his,
friends at dinner, and possibly the
most amusing Is that of the belated
guest 'When, late in the dinner, this
friend was announced, Mr. Sothcrn ex
claimed, "Let us all hide under the
table," and down they all went save
Mr. Sothern himself, who remained
eated. When the tardy guest entered,
Mr. othcrn roso atid receive!! him
with exquisite courtesy saying, "When
your name was announced, my guests,
for some unaccountable reason, all hid
under the table." After a few mo
ments of discomfort one by one they
crept out and back to their scats.
I heard from both Mr. Sothern and
Mrs. Vincent this account of an out
burst of fun at a dinner given by him
In his parlor at the Revere nouse: As
the guests, ten In number, were gath
ered about the open fire before dinner
a stout, pompous waiter, afflicted with
short breath, added the last touches to
his dinner table, already spread. Ten
large, square pieces of bread were
placed with mathematical precision
one at each plate, and then he left the
room to bring the wine. Mr. Sothern
saw his opportunity and, calling his
dog, cried: "Tiger, the bread! Quick,
Tiger!" And the nimble little gray
hound bounded lightly upon the table
again and again as he heard his mas
ter's Imperative "Fetch the bread!"
until each piece had been removed to
a dark corner near the fire.
Upon the waiter's return all was si
lence. The expectant look upon Mr.
Sothern's face showed only that dinner
was awaited. Standing for a moment,
bewildered, the waiter, seeing no bread
upon the table, hesitatingly turned to
the door, then retraced his steps to
the table, examined It carefully and
hurriedly left the room. He soon re
appeared with a fresh plate of bread,
and again at each plate a piece was
carefully placed, and he retired with
the empty plate. "Quick, TIgerl Fetch
It again! More bread! More bread!"
And once more each piece was re
moved before the grave 'waiter reap
peared, and nil were again silent. One
look at the table and one at the
guests, and there remained no doubt
Those poor, hungry actors had eaten
It! With a look of contempt he an
nounced dinner, and after all were
safely seated at the table he brought
a third plate of bread and with a fork
placed It, with a gesture of scorn,
piece by piece for each person and for
the host. The merry scene soon dis
armed his hostility, and before the
evening was over the bread In the cor
ner was revealed. Mrs. Lucy Derby

Knew What to Do 'With It.
A miserly landlord was going round
collecting his rents the other day. At
one house he was greatly interested In
a little girl who watched, open mouthed
and open eyed, the business of paying
over the money and accepting the re
ceipt. He patted her on the head and start
ed out to search his pockets, saying, "I
must see what I hate got for you."
After searching his pockets for some
time he at last brought from a remote
corner a peppermint As he handed It
to the girl he said, "And now what will
you do with that?"
The little girl looked at it then at
him and replied, "Wash It." London

A Detroit woman who labors among
the poor children of the city was tell

"One day there was a death In the

children were visibly Impressed. They

"'It was better for her, wasn't It
