By local applications, as they cannot reach the

The Archbishop of Dublin recently

On one occasion, during a visit to
America, Michael Gunn, who assisted
Gilbert and Sullivan In bringing out
many of their operas, was trying the

stage manager interrupted. "Look

less Mediterranean, and a little more

said, "Of what nationality are you?

An anecdote of Gladstone is set down
by Sir Wemyss Reid in the new Anglo
Saxon. Reid tells how, on one occa
sion, ten years ago, he sat opposite Mr.
Gladstone at dinner, and noticed that
the side of his face was severely
bruised and cut. The explanation was
interesting. Mr. Gladstone had been
to call, a few evenings before, upon
Lord Granville, who was then very ill,
In returning he took a short ' cut
through some of the alleys of Mayfair,
and in passing along one narrow street
he slipped off the pavement and, losln.

Fame Is a thing, frequently, of slow
achievement. The excellence of an
actor must be repeatedly declared and
most positively asserted before the

consider him seriously, no matter bow
seriously be may take himself; and,
though he may have come to some
thing of a safe place in the esteem of a

Cibber, you know, pronounced Gar

out things with the malicious remark
that the "hound" had something In
him, "but If his excellence," he as ex
pressed it, "was to be examined, he
would not be found In any part equal
to Golley Cibber's Sir John Brute, Lard
Foppington, Sir Courtly Nice or Justice
Shallow." This was when Garrick
was a young, and, according to Pond's
portrait, a very handsome fellow, his
years not more than 25, and his beauty
such as to have attracted the envy of
the Idols of the town. Foote's compart
son was made, not out of any justice to
Cibber, whom he did not like, but sim
ply through ill-will to Garrick, whose
rising influence he feared.
Rosclus, it is said, had a squint in his
eye, and Churchill, with others, found
fault with Garrick's littleness of person.
and laughed at his airs and ridiculed
his pretentions., Quinn was a better

this determined detractor, and "old

critic, did not like him In "Hotspur,
and yet he said, "I don't know If he did
not succeed in It beyond all the rest"
"I saw 'King Lear' the last time he
played it," continues -Sir Horace, "and
as I told him, I was more shocked at

GOT RID OF THE TARANTULA.

coat and with big beads of perspiration
on his face came into the smoking car
of an Erie railway train as it was get

an express messenger.

"A t'rantuly, as sure as guns!" be
continued. "A citizen of Bermudy, this

The big fat man got out of his seat
and passed the dinner pail around

be all hair and claws and eyes. So one
seemed pleased with the sight except
the big man. It was a tarantula sure
A unanimous request was made by
the rest of the passengers that the hid

deadly thing with undisturbed interest.
"Where did you run ag'in him?" he
asked the express messenger.
"Came out of a bunch o' bananas In

cornered him and he jumped Into my
dinner bucket and I shut him in. What
is he good for?" ,
"He's a first-class benefactor of the

big.man. "If there's any feller citizen

The every day drudgery of tbe house

Many are prematurely broken down
in health, their cherished hopes blasted,
their home-life unhappy, because of
the constant tare and worry of house

"During the early part of the winter

and in the course of two or three
months I was unable to do any work.
By this time my daughter had recov

with the housework.
"One night my husband was gone
from home over night on business, and,
my daughter being overburdened, with
work, I concluded to milk the cows,
which I did much against her wiahna.
My limbs were so badly affected that
i could narclly get to the barnyard, and
my bands and fingers were in such a
condition that it was with great diffi
culty that I used them.
"I was worse than ever after this,
and I was confined to my bed for more
than ten weeks.
"It seemed that every muscle in my
body pained me, and my condition was
a critical one. The physican failed to
