A Narrow Escape.
An old circus man tells this Incident
aa one of the narrow escapes he had
lu the show business. He had trained
lions, zebras, leopards, rhino you
know and all sorts of beasts of prey,
but this, he says, was bis narrowest
escape, it was wheu he was running
a dlmo museum In Milwaukee.
One day a mild mannered Itussktn
came out of the railway station with
a valise In his baud. He was a heavily
bearded man and with shaggy hands
aud arms like George Esau. He bunt
ed up a cabman and Inquired modest
ly, "Where Is the dime museum T"
The cabman told him and then asked,
Waut to ride up?"
"Yea," the bearded stranger told hlra
quietly, almost bashfully. "I'm to be
employed up there. I'm the wild man."
"The narrow escape," says the ex-
clrcus man, "lay In the fact that no
newspaer man heard the man's re
mark and that the cabman was an
Englishman, with no sense of humor,
who never thought to rciieat It." Exchange.
Origin of the Word "Mustard."
Our English word "mustard" la
traceable to the French "moutarde,"
the origin of which is curiously given.
In Us"-' Philip the Hold, duke of Iiur
gundy, granted to the town of IMJon
the privilege of bearing his armorial
ensigns, with the motto "Moult me
tarde" ("I wish ardently"!. In return
for a handsome contingent of a thou
sand men furnished to him at his ex-
iense. Please,! with lite royal con
descension, the authorities ordered the
device to ls affixed over the principal
gates of the city. Time or accident at
length obliterated the middle word,
and the two remaining, moult tarde,
were printed on the labels which the
merchants of Dijon pasted on ots In
which they sent this commodity all
