Men with Several Offices. A good many business men of this city have two. three and Home four different offices. Sometime these are four or five milea apart. There are well known lawyers here who have two offices and handle a wholly different class of busines tu each. Interested in big cor;ii ations, a live business man often necessarilv ha office hours at the corporation offices of the respective concerns. This not only enables him to discharge hia mind of all other branches of hia business while attending to one, but it enables those who have business" with him to transact it without in terfering with those who are bent on something else. The mental strain thus put upon an active business man soon sends! him to Florida or some more perma nent resting place, so that it is doubt ful if anything is gained by doubling up in this way. The matter is inter esting, however, as illustrating the peculiar qualities of brain power and training. New York Herald.

Edward Nathaniel Lewer, who was all his life connected with the Lon don Stock exchange, and died on May 7, 187(5, aged eighty, once said in all seriousness that during the Napoleonic wars so much false news or pontics and army movements came through Hamburg that any thing that smacked of the incredi ble was received with the derisive phrase, "That's Hamburg." whence is derived by corruption the word "humbug." If the woid does not date back beyond the period referred to, it seems a more reasonable deri' vation than the very labored one we get in Webster's Dictionary. Notefl and Queries. Jerked Beef. A remarkable instance of the ten dency to change and even mutilate a word in order to give it a familiar and suggestive appearance is found in the expression "jerked beef." which is a ready English substitute for "charqui," the Peruvian word for meat cooked in smoke, or "jerked." Such a liberty taken with a foreign word may readily be pardoned when so happy in result, but the necessity for changing "lustrine," a French word for silk, into "lutestring" may be questioned, seeing we have many words, such as "luster" and "lus- trous," from the same root But there is no accounting for fancies, Chambers' Journal ; When Nails Came High. !
