Scott'a Rapid Writing.
Sir W alter Scott was ono o f the
most rapid writers that the world
has ever known. He wrote “ Guy
Mannering” in a couple of months,
and tho same time sufficed for “ Old
M ortality,” while “ Ivanhoe” was ac­
tually dictated as Scott lay upon a
couch Buffering from excruciating
pain. But perhaps the most rapid
work even he ever accomplished
was his colossal “ L ife of Napo­
leon,” in nine volumes. This he
wrote in one year, intermixed with
much other work.
Father In the Secret.
A girl in Philadelphia, who had
recently figured in a romantic run­
away match, was, after her return
home, telling her dearest friend all
about it.
Th e latter interrupted with this
question, “ When you eloped with
Louis did you leave a note telling
your folks whero you had gone?”
“ Why, o f course,” said the wife.
“ I f I hadn’t, how on earth would
papa have known whert* to send us
any money?” — New York Times.
“ A man tried to pick my pockets
in the street yesterday, but my wife
prevented him.”
“ Did she gTapple with him or
just scream?”
“ Neither. She wasn’t there.”
“ Then how could she prevent
him ?”
“ She had been through my pock­
ets tirst.”

Not Americanisms.

such as “ take It from me," "the real
