Tho word "atarvntlou" waa Introduced Into the English language by lta

by blm In a apeech lu parliament on
the American debate la 1775 and was
immediately caught ap and applied to

he was known thenceforward aa "Star-
���vnthnt" Duudna."
"1 shall uot." such was bis declaration, "wait for tbo advent of starvation from Edinburgh to settle my judgment."
liefore the time of Pundns "starve,"
"starring," "starved" aud "starveling"
w��re In use, but hunger or famine rep*
resented tbo stale of starvation.
.Mthongh this word bas r.ow an established plnv* lu our vocabulary, it
was at tlrst vigorously opposed by

old English, while the ending, "atlon,"

but not a bustler. His fingers are long

A third man will carry bis cigar with

It. He picked up that trick when
smoking ou the sly as a boy, fearing

"game" was originally for tbe player
to divide the sticks rapidly witb his
two hands, tbe opponent guessing
which baud held tho larger number.
Owners of sticks spent rainy days In
carving them. Tbe Aalatlra borrowed
the game and catved more elaborate
counters out of Ivory. Those with different carvings grew to have different
values. Arranglug them in groups of
fours made It necessary to add two to
the original number. Than thin slabs
of ivory began to be used.
For centuries after this all playing
cards were baud painted, at flrst on
Ivory or metal, afterward ou cardboard. The pictures, at first legendary
heroes and ladles, gradually became the

The word "starvation'' was Introduced luto the English language by its
coiner, Henry Dundas, Afterward Viscount Melville. It wus originally used
by blm in a speech In parliament on
the American debate In 1775 and was
immediately caught up and: applied to
himself In a political nickname, so that
he waa known thenceforward as "Star-
���vatlou" Duudns."
"1 shall not." such was his declaration, "wait for tho advent ot starvation from Kdlnburgb to settle my Judgment."
Itoforc the time of Dundas "starve,"
"starviug," "starved" and "starveling"
were In use, but hunger or famine represented tbo Htuto of starvation.
Although this word hns now an established plum. In our voc-nbulury, lt
wus at Hrst vigorously opposed by
many, and on Just grounds, as of hybrid formation. The root "starve" is
old English, while .the ending, "ution,"
Is Latin, It does not appear lu any
English dictionaries until the year 1800.

Did you ever nolu-e the different
way* men hold cigars or cigarettes?
Did you ever observe bow you yourself
hold oue?
There are about a dosen different
ways, and probably no two men hold
their cigars exactly, alike.
A judge of human nature may pick
up Interesting points aa to character
from watching smokers.
Ono man will hold bis cigar firmly
between thumb nud forefinger. He in
usually u resolute, tenacious man.
itrenuoUs or UK-rely phlegmatic, as the
case may be, tint never lazy. Ills lingers nre stumpy.
Another man holds the cigar loosely
between his lirst and second lingers.
Ue is apt lo be graceful, lu_y, Irivso-
lute, u man of artistic temperament,
but not a hustler. His fingers are long
and tupurllig.
A third man will carry his cigar with
tbe lighted end turned lu toward the
palm, tlie hand held scoop sbapeuround
tt. He picked up thnt trick whon
smoking ou the sly ns a hoy, fearing
papa might break suddenly Into the
game. He Is usually of a secretive nature nnd not marked by any special
tendency to frankness.
A fourth will hold bla cigar awkwardly, uervously gripping It and often
staring at It Inquisitively to see how it
Is burning. He ls uot a "natural smoker," nor Is he apt to bo what Is known
as it "good fellow." He is usually anxious to conciliate others and has uot
great force of character.
Watch thc man behind the olgar and
see If all these character drawings ara
aot correct.

by Two lluuwry Mra.
"One of thu cleverest 'grafts' I ever
saw wus worked the other day In a
cjulck lunch restaurant on Park row,"
suid the Observer. "I noticed two men
talking earnestly just below the placo
ne I was going In to get my lunch. Ono
of ihem followed me In aud took a seat
just below me at the table. A few seconds later the other entored and took a
seat just opposite his friend, whom he
did not appear to kuow. Thc lirst man
ordered a very extensive dinner, commencing with soup uud ending with
charlotte russc and coffee. He got the
very best that the placo could afford,
and his check for $1.35 was-placed lu
fro.it of him. The other man took his
time uliout ordering, taking corned
beef and beans���lu cents' worth. His
check was placed In tbe center of the
table, between the two men.
' "Number one ate hastily and finished
.Irst. He got up, put ou hia bnt and
then calmly picked up tbe teu cent
check tha.t (ueiouge_i to un. rri��n__.
Without turning a hair he went to tha
desk, paid 10 cents and walked out. A
few minutes later number two, who
had been reading the paper, prepared
to leave and took up the remaining
check. Ue npitenrcd greatly surprised
and called the waiter, asking for un
explanation. There was nothing for tho
knight of tlie iwpklu tu uu nut give me
man a new teu cent check, ss lt was
very evident that he bad not eaten
$1.33 worth of food.. I suppose that the
two met outside mid at the next place

Ancient Proofreading.
The editions of hooks printed 200 ot
300 years ago nre almost ci tireiy free
from typographical errors, which may
be attributed to tho fact that early
publishers were generally eminent
scholars, aud themselves gave much
attention to tho ivvisioii of their
proofs. After reading tho proofs they
frequently turned them over to other
scholars with the request to revise and
correct, nod as the printer's time was
then deemed a matter of small consequence a perfection was attained which
hi seldom equaled by modern printers.
