That is w hy a reporter started out tuo oilier
r.av to dud out what millionaires eat
Most people havo an idea that the ninjoritv
of millionaires dine ou some kind of extraor
dinary food of which the usual run of men
know nothing about. This fidlaey was ex
posed ty the reporter's Informants, and it
seems that millionaires eat pretty much the
same kind of food as do people who haven't
so much money, but who probably have more
As a rulo millionaires do not care to tell
just what they eat, but tho biggest millionaire
of them all, Mr. Jay Oould, has no such scru
ples. Without hesitation Mr. Oould informed
tho reporter that ho was an alwtemious diner
and had no desiro for extraordinary dishes.
JIR. OOCLB'8 FRENCH COOK.
"I keep a French cook," said Mr. Gould,
"who has been with me for years, but ho is
not required to exert his ingenuity in getting
up novelties for the palate."
"Whnt do you usually have for breakfast I"
asked tho reporter.
"I usually ent an orange as a starter," re
plied Mr. Gould, "and I am very fond of a
idee Kirtei houso steak, an egg omelet cooked
in a manner peculiar to my French chef, hot
rolls, coffee nnd any littlo kuickknacks now
in tho market"
"And for luuehT
"Oh, I eat very sparingly for lunch. Some
times I go up on the top lloor of tho Western

At 1 o'clock he visils tho restaurant oil the

A PIECE OF PIK.
To counteract this Mr. Field's New Eng
land ancestry conies to the fore, nnd ho
rarely leaves either tho lunch or dinner table
without testing the merits of a piece of pie,
Mr. Field's dinner is always an elaborate
affair. His fcu.ots are numerous, and the
menu contain everything thnt the most par
ticular palate can desire. Ono of Mr. Field's
favorite ill-lies is mock turtle soup. Ho has
been known to eat throe plutes of this deli
cacy liefore settling down to the more solid
delights of a bill of fare.
The most sparing and economical of the
millionaires m regard to diet is Kussell Sago.
His breakfast consists of a bowl of oatmeal
uud milk, two slices of bread and a cup of
tea. Winter or summer, Mr. Sago never
varies in this respect. For lunch ho some
times buys two crullers from old "Kuly,"
who ketiai a lunch stand in front of Mr.
Suge's ofllce, but more frequently a one cent
apple sufllees the cravings of his appetite.
At dinner Mr. Suge is equally abstemious.

One incident related by Gen. Averell was
this: He was on duty with Col. Porter's com
mand nt Manassas atfer tho fli-st Bull Bun.
Ono day the colonel and ttnff, with n squad
ron of cavalry, wont out beyond tho pickets
to reconnoiter, when they saw an equal body
of horsemen in Confederate gray approachuig
from an opiiosite direction. Cob I'oi-ter gave
tho order to charge, when tho o'.ber body
displayed a flag of truce. The leader of the
Confederates said to Gen. Averell, who went
forward to meet him, "I am Col. Taylor, of
tho Confederate States army, and am tho
bearer of dispatches from President Davis of
the Confederate States to President Lincoln
of tho Cuited states." The dispatches were
received nnd forwarded to Washington, when
Col. Taylor said, "This ends our oiiicial inter

sm prised to see Cola. Porter and Taylor em

"Andy, old boy!" "Tom, old fellow, how are

THE REVISED VERSION.
What Wna Klprcted of It Ursn.im Why
It lulled to lleeum I'opular,
8ix years havo passed since the revised ver
sion of the New Testament was given to th
English sjirakiiig world. For almost a do
rado attention had lieen directed tolhs place
where the scholars in charge of tho great un
dertaking Wei's pursuing their work. It
completion was regarded as an epoch in re
ligion! history. Many believed that million
would lie interested in the new version who
bad never carefully studio 1 tho oM Some
thought that it would result iu a general re
vival of religion. The translation wosalmost
universally commended by biblical scholars
uud theologians. Great praise was bestowed
ou the men w ho wore so long engagnd on the
ditUcult work. Large sums were offered for
early copies. The number sold during a few
mouths was enormous.
Hut the revised torsion failed to supersede
the old one. It has never Wen syinHlienlly
approved by the established Church of Eng
land that took the initiative in its produc
tion. It has nerer Uvn formally adopt.il by
any Protestant denomination for use in
churches and Suiu'ay schools. It is rarely
read nt family demotions. Few writers or
sHakein, Uy or clerical, quote it. It may
almost In' said to have passed out of sight and
mind. Why was it doomed to such a failurel
Mr. John Fulton undertakes to answer the
question ill tho current nunilier of Tho
Forum. The reasons he assigns are that too
many changes w ere introduced to suit some
and not enough to satisfy others. Ho also
thinks that the ootry of many assiigos was
inquired by giving them a too literal transla
tion. A certain degree of obscurity serves to
give a charm to the expression of vtical
sentiments. No one is pleased with a likened
of a M'rson made by measuring his feature?
and reducing them to a certain scale.
These things may have had something to
do with preventing, the new version from lie
coming iwpuhir. Hut otvicisly other causes
contributed to its failure. Persons who are
radical or progressive on oilier matter are
apt to be very conservative ou everything
that pertains to religion. Then a certain von
eratio'.i attaches to the authorized 1eiiono(
King James as well as to tho subject matter
itself. In every hou-chold the old family
bible, iu which are recorded the births, mar
riages, sad deaths of several generations, is a
Uncrrd hook. If neglected lit other linn's, it
is rend on occasions of nlllict ion audiidvcrsily.
Consolation is sought from it. The noblest
sentiments cluster around it.
Thousands of passages from tho old or es
tablished version have been Incorporated into
the classic literntureof the language, and they
cannot Iw revised. Still more passages have
b;-on engraved on tonilistonex, nnd nono but
a vandal Jiand would erase them, for to do so
would be a sacrilege. Old and wi ll loved
hymns almond in phrases taken from the old
version, and they cannot l changed to con
form to the new translation without destroy
ing their melody. Tho old version must re
main, for it exists in ninny forms. It will
only go out of use w hen tho English language
censes to lie sjiokeii. It w ill live and help pre
serve tho fcrco and vigor of tho lunguuuge of

On tho fourth sho met a monk whom sho
