THE CALL OF THE WEST.   r' ; ,  '  Women Are  Needed to  Build  Up   Its  Domestic  Life.  ���������In Unit far western bind of Canada  whore the sun sin';s into undulating  fields of gitun, tla e tire lonely hsai S.  When the throb of day has ceased mid  subdued sounds b ;in to pass over the  prairies and poop, tiie eventide with  fancies and voarn lgs, there are bosoms that sigh. Tlu quiet, lonely hour  brings thoughts of home, of- kindiod,  of early associations and of lender  memories.  Annually now there are thousands  of people "from all parts of Europe  pouring into the vast areas that  spread themselves out bstween the indented Pacific and the peaceful settlements of the east. With the exception of a small percentage, indeed,  these thousands are men, young and  old, who have gone into the now and  promising Held, to gather their sheaves of success and fortune. Some have  established homes, sonic have not.  It is from those who have not the content and refinement of settled domestic life that the call of the West  comes.  'The echoes arc resounding now toward the Atlantic and across into the  populous nations of the old land, and  those echoes tire .ambassadors of affection to the [lower of womankind.  Throughout that great territory,  billowy as it is with golden wheat,  there are innumerable men who, with  stout resolve and eager purpose, ara  endeavoring to establish homes.  Wives, mothers and adored ones are  left behind till fathers, husbands and  brothers send for them. Tailing <..m  with the light of hope constantly before their view, these new citizens < f  the Dominion arc hewing out a destiny for themselves and the young nation into which they have come. When  the smile of foituuc warms their  brows, they will send to tho crowded  cities, the pretty towns and sleepy  hamlets of Kuropc for those who alone  by their -feminine grace and influence can enthuse the highest morality  into citizenship.  . The world lias again and again  taught humanity that without the  chastening agencies of the home, the  fabric of national life cannot be  strong. The men in the West will  turn Its sod, build its great centres  of population and.transform its wastes  into fertile fields, but the women at  tho fireside will make it rich in those  qualities out of which true greatness  springs.  Tt cannot be expected that to take  the highest place in the affairs of a  broad Dominion the West can do  without the counsels and culture  which woman offers. It is a new country, pregnant with great possibilities  and wealth, b'lt it cannot lay the  strongest foundations unless the call  is answered.  It is not suggested in any way that  there is not now a noble w&rk being  dene daily by the mothers and wives  who have' gone to the big west. They  have taken with them the attributes  of dignified domesticity, but there are  not enough of them, their sisters beyond the snas must augment their  efforts.  To those wlm reflect on the good  'which is in tlioi'r follows, it must appeal that the thousands of men who  are laboring long and alone to make  homes in the trackless acres of the  new provinces are doing well. They  are true to tho best instincts in them,  true to the memories of their childhood and parental roof, true to those  they love and true to the community  where they have settled. One by one  they are preparing a hearthstone and  as each is made ready, we hear repeated the call of the West.  Dullman Goes to  Dark  Hole.  Dullman, the mysterious life prisoner, who is behind the walls of  Kingston Penitentiary, and who is  probably the most celebrated criminal  in any Canadian penitentiary, has, it  is announcid, been sent to the dark  hole and stone pile, because be refused point blank to work.  No criminal more interests the Department of Justice than does this  man. lie is of scholarly attainments  and knows - every part of the world  like a checker botird, -but be has kept  his past life to himself, and no one  knows what he is or whence be came.  All he wi.ll say is that no one but  himself is to blame for the fiendish  attempt to blow up the Welland Canal and be is glad that no one was  killed.  The most generally accepted theory  is that Dullman was high up in the  councils of the Irish-Americans, that  some one was suspected of giving out  secrets, that that person was Dull-  man, and that in order to clear himself he undertook something big off  his own bat. Procuring a couple of  dupes he sent them out to blow up  the canal and figured that both would  be blown up or drowned.  Not long ago be hod a good job  in the penitentiary keeping books, but  fancyitur himself slighted be refused  to work and went to the dark ho!o  witaout a murmur.  Timber Wolves.  Probably of all auimals there is  none which has more exciting experiences than a timber wolf. The  wolf of fiction is a gaunt, hungry,  evil looking animal. The wolf of reality in the north is slick and fat and  about 80 pounds for females up to MO  foi males. He never chases rabbits,  but is willing to finish the remains of  an owl's supper. Hut if some one has  put a rabbit down doped with poison  he generally polishes that morsel off.  They hunt deer by preconcerted  plan. The pack station themselves  ,down wind. Thou one makes a circle  and comes wind rights on the deer,  which may be lying down or fcedmjr,  and of course makes a 'dash, never  realizing that there is a circle of death  dealing enemies before him. When the  deer is coming in full jump the wolf  first makes a short spring of six or  eight feet, but the next is from twenty  to thirty feet, and before the deer  realizes danger bis end is cc/tain.  But if he chances to get off bis  /loom is scaled, and within three to  pevon miles he is run down or corralled. They seem to got nervous and  excited and to know that there is no  escape ai"l '-urn to bay, nnd that  ends if..     .  New Glasses.  Wash new glasses for the first time  in cold water.

THE OLD-TIME GRIZZLY.  Great Hordes Formerly Roamed West  ��������� Is Now Fast Passing  ft is noticeable that tho early  western travelers speak of the grizzly  as the "white bear." It is so described by Lewis and Clark, aud Jas.  0. fattie, narrating his father's expedition in 1S24, spoke of the great  number and unusual ferocity of these  "great white boars.". So great wort  their numbers in that early day, that  in a single day's journey Pattie counted two hundred ind twenty of them,  eight of which bad attacked the party  and were killed. This was on  Sept. 10, 1624, while the party was  passing through the territory now occupied by Cheyenne county, Colorado. A few clays later, further south,  the grizzlies became so numerous that  twenty men were required to guard  the camp from their onslaughts each  night. So much for the "solitary"  nature of the grizzly back in the  twenties.  Was  Once  Monarch.  Writing of the period of the early  "forties," Gen. Fremont, in his memoirs, speaks of having seen great  herds of these monsters feeding gregariously under the oaks of San Bernardino, California. Such testimony  tends to show that this great grizzly  was not always the lone wanderer  that wo now; know him to be, and  tends to show, moreover, that he once  liked the valleys better than his present dreary nnd solitary abode. Indeed, the explorers of tho West found  him equally at home in the parched  fastness of tho Great Basin, in the  fertile valleys or among the ice-bound  peaks, whether feeding upon berries  or bison, herbs or human flesh, and  everywhere, at nil times, "monarch of  all he surveyed."  Making   Last Stand.  But he is passing. In the places  where, seventy-five years ago, two  hundred of his powerful tribe co-i'd  be counted in a day's journey, lie is  now but a tradition and a memory,  and lie is a lucky sportsman who  gets-one shot at a grizzly in n-lifetime. Driven to the inaccessible retreats of the mountains, lie is making his last stand against a race  which has already robbed him of  those myriad herds of buffalo, antelope, and elk, which were once his  prey, and from his icy summit, where  only the American eagle sours, in  solitary grandeur he looks down upon  a hereditary dominion which is to bo  bis jio more forever. ���������  We have known him but a hundred  years. Was there ever so mighty a  monarch with reign so brief? We  cannot compute the exact rate at  which be is disappearing (it is far  easier to get at the mortuary statistics of his' enemies), but, as events  go, it is likely that there will still be  tigers iu India and lions in Africa long  after the last echoes of the grizzly's  howl has died among the peaks and  precipices of his mountain home. But  be will die as he-lived���������die as bc-  cornes\ the American monarch���������"the  gamest of the game."  FLIES AS DISEASE BEARERS.  The   Common   House   Variety   Are. a  Menace to Health.  The United States Department of  Agriculture litis started a crusade  against the common house fly and is  carrying on extensive experiments' as  to the best way of banishing it from  the abodes of man. The fly has been  found to be not only a nuisance, but  a menace to man's health. Tts  hairy body carries both disease and  death. Many epiJcmiw which sweep  over communities in the hot season  have been traced to the fly. Having  its origin in filth, it brings with it the  bacteria which breed in filth. And  as it moves about, now crawling over  refuse, now over the food on Uie table, 'living from the lips of the sick  to the "lips of the healthy; it is said to  bo moro dangerous to modern society  than were the wild beasts to primitive man.  The high mortality among thc-chil-  dren in the congested districts of a  city, where families are closely  crowded together, where refuse accumulates fast, where food is often  kept in living rooms, is due to a  large degree, no scientists now say,  to the fly. Infant diseases chiefly  prevail in" the hot season, when the  (lies abound. Dr. J. T. C. Nash, in  The Journal of the Royal Sanitary  Institute, giving bis experience as an  English health officer, says that the  fly is responsible for the death of  -nany children because of polluting  vhe' milk which they drink  "It is a matter that has been entirely overlooked," said "'Dr. C. 0.  Probst, recently, "but we now know  that- the common bouse fly is an  agent of importance in carrying the  germs of typhoid fever. It was formerly believed that the germs were  only carried in water, milk or other  liquid food. Flics both breed and feed  in places where the genns are to be  found, and then, flying into our  houses, no doubt often carry t.ie  germs and deposit them on our food.  Canada  Leading.  The Cobden Club issues a reply to  the proposals before the Imperial Conference, and says--: "The significance  of the Canadian policy is that it represents the most fully conscious evolution of tho colonial, principle, tui  evolution not towards closer union,  but consistently towards larger independence in poKtioal, military and  economic action. Where Canada to-day  stands our other self-governing colonics will stand to-morrow."  The pamphlet criticizes the preference proposals and discounts the  value of Canadian-preference, w-bicli  Canada cannot increase if she is consistent with her protective policy, ft  also states that the Canadian bounty  policy is hostile to the validity of preference. The New Zealand and Australian proposals are merely instruments to increase the stringency of  protection.  A Hebrew Proverb.

TO UNITE SOUTH AFRICA  FORECAST     OF*    NEW     BRITISH  COMMONWEALTH.  DIRTY   MONEY.  A Large Part of Our Paper Currency  Is Not Fit to Handle.  Recent cases of blood poisoning from  handling dirty money furnish a striking Illustration of the unsatisfactory  condition of the paper currency of the  country in this important respect of  cleanliness: It has often been asserted  that the dirty notes which pass from  hand to hand in'this community serve  as vehicles for the dissemination of  disease, hut it may be doubted whether these reiterated statements have  carried much conviction with them.  The average man does not exactly  disbelieve them, ��������� but he has an Idea  that they are exaggerated, that there  is no real danger from the source mentioned, and he is generally too-glad to  get money of any kind to be very  particular about its physical quality.  He thinks that there is not much risk  of his contracting any disease from all  the mouey he has occasiou to handle,  and, anyhow, he is perfectly willing to'  take his chances.  That kind of feeling can be understood, and yet it shows some lack of  thought or sense. There are noxious  germs on much of the paper money In  circulation. Considering how many  hands it passes lbro;'.:h and all the  kinds of people who have had It To"  their possession It Is'natural, It Is almost unavoidable, that there should be,  and that these noxious germs may  prove infectious has been proved more  than once.  As a matter of Tact, a large part of  the paper currency iu circulation is not  lit for a nice, cleau, self-respectiug man  to be carrying around concealed upon  his person. In other large cities where  there are numerous banks the conditions are not so bad, because the banks  refrain as far as they can from giving  dirty notes to their customers, ��������� but In  the country, where greenbacks and-  treasury notes are passed around until  they will scarcely- hold together, a state  of things exists In this connection  which Is distinctly injurious aud discreditable.  It has been proposed as a remedy  that the use of paper money In denominations lower than twenty dollars  be discontinued and that gold and silver coin be exclusively employed in retail transactions. That this would not  be impracticable, is proved by European experience. There is practically  no paper money In Eugland.  The smallest bill Is the five pound  note of the Bank of England, which  the person tendering is liable to be  asked to indorse, so seldom is it seen.  Americans buvo for too many years  been accustjmed to the convenience of  a paper currency to be willing to give  It up. Yet the problem Is not Insoluble,  and some other remedy should be  sought for and applied when found.���������  Philadelphia Inquirer.  August is the month of Internal  catarrh.

Colonies to Be Federated���������Lord Sel-  borne Issues Important News���������To  Establish One Parliament���������Consolidate the Railways���������Delagoa Bay  .Reaps Inordinate ..Advantages���������  Constitution of Present Legislature  A scheme of the greatest importance  is on foot for the' federation of the  South African Colonies. A memorandum, edited by Lord 'Selborne, and  issued with his a ithority,- points out  the necessity of c-tablishing one Parliament to represent the whole of  South Africa, and protect British  ports and interest i, especially in view  of the position of Helagoa Bay, which,  under the Portuguese, is reaping inordinate railway .and other advantages. The. memoi ^ndum asserts that  the' state of affa' 3' is such that the  political position .f the country as a  vvhole must withii the present year be  deliberately discussed between all the  Mritish South African. Governments.  The-memorandum conveys the impression that union is necessitated by  the position of Delagoa Bay, which is  reaping inordinate railway and other  advantages ruinously affecting the  British ports, and tho idea is  that a consolidation of the railway  and other British interests' terminating this state of things, though with  scrupulous fairness to our ally Portugal, becomes increasingly pressing.  General Botha and bis Government  point out thai tho memorandum was  drawn up before they took - office.  While cordially approving of federation, they dissent from what is said  in the document regarding Delagoa  Bay, declaring that .their attitude towards the Portuguese will always be.  sincerely friendly. . Lord Selborne  strongly deprecates retarding federation. The Colonies, it is pointed out,  possess full self-government, but  South Africa as a whole does not possess it, because there are constant  inter-Colonial divergences which necessitate the intervention of the High  Commissioner, who is controlled by  the Imperial Government. Consequently, -in extreme cases, the ultimate authority in the stridtly internal,  affairs of South^Africa is the Imperial  Parliament. South Africa, the memorandum adds, can only be wisely and  successfully governed by a Government responsible to a Parliament representing the whole of South Africa.  The four self-governing Colonies of  South Africa, now that Orangia has  'icon granted a constitution, are the  Cape of Good Hope, Natal, the Transvaal, and the Orange River Colony.  The present constitution of the Cape  Colony dates from 1S72. The Parliament consists of a Legislative Council of twenty-six members, elected for  seven years, and a House of Assembly  of 107 'members elected for five years.  Natal attained responsible Government in 1803. It has a Legislative  Council of thirteen members, who  bold' their seats for ten years, and a  Legislative Assembly of forty-three  members, elected for four years. The  Transvaal, under its new constitution  granted last year, has a Legislative  Council of fifteen members, nnd a  Legislative Assembly of sixty-nine  members. .The letters patent, recently  issued, providing for the establishment of responsible Government in  the Orange River Colony vest the  legislative power in a Legislative-  Council of eleven members and a  Legislative  Assembly  of thirty-eight.

The program of activities which-  King Edward is undergoing this summer marks him as one of the busiest  and most ha id- working Monarchs ol  bis time. The German Emperor has a  popular reputation for" activity, and  President Roosevelt's name is linked  with "the strenuous life," but when  it is considered how much older the  King of England is than his compeers  he may challenge comparison with  either. The recent visit to Ireland waa  one of the last chapters in the King's  work before an A'ugust vacation at  Marion bad concludes a strenuous  summer.  Last week the King went to Newmarket for racing, and after that to  tin Goodwood races and to the Cowes'  regatta before his departure for Mar-  ienbnd.  While abroad the King will meet  the Emperor of Austria. In September  the German Emperor will visit King  Edward while the court is in residence at Windsor. This will mean  much entertaining, reviewing of  troops and formalities, but the recent announcements have failed to  excite any enthusiasm in this country. There was much sighing in so-  nietv during the years of Queen Victoria's widowhood for' the splendors  of court life. King Edward is giving  the court and the country a memorable social leien, apart from his activities as a diplomat.  FOOLING  A  CAMEL  How tho Arabs Let the Animal Exhaust  Its* Bad Temper.

Does Not  olor Hai,  That settlement of quarrels by appeal  to the code of. houor was no longer, to  be the unwritten law of the American  navy was determined by a duel In  which William Miller, Jr., "a Philadelphia lawyer, was slain in a personal  affair fought along the northern circle  uf Delaware. Tho man who fired the  fatal shot was Midshipman Charles G.  Hauler, and the encounter took place  along Naauitin's creek on.the afternoon  of Sunday, March 21, 1800. -   -'  Singularly enough, neither^ Miller,  who lost his life, nor Hunter,-'who killed him, was principal in the" original  quurrel that led to the meeting on the  bank of the little creek iu Delaware.  Neltliw had seen the other until a few  hours before the challenge was sent  aud accepted.  'Simply a misshot In a game of billiards played at Third and Chestnut  streets, Philadelphia, led to the tragedy  that plunged two homes into sorrow  and- imbittored the life of the man  whose pistol shot causelessly shed hu-  m<iu blood. . ���������>  Henry Wharton Griffith and R. Dillon Drake, prominent society meu of  Philadelphia,-played the game of billiards, and Grlifith made the mLsshot  which called forth a taunt'froru Drake/  who was Immediately struck in the  face with a cue by Griffith. A challenge to a duel was sent by Drake, but,  Griffith declared that the challenger  was beneath his notice and that he  would not demeau himself socially by  consenting to meet him.  Then followed a long and wordy warfare in which each posted the other as  a coward.    Lieutenant Duryee of the  United States'navy was called to make  an effort to settle the dispute, and it  was then that Miller, the lawyer, and  JIunter,   the  midshipman,  became  involved In the quarrel.    In the boated  discussion   Hunter accused   Miller  of  publishing a confidential letter, and" a  challenge was at once sent by the midshipman and accepted by tho attorney.  It was decided that the duel should  be fought early on Sunday, morning of  March 21, but it was nearly 10 o'clock  before carriages containing the principals, seconds and surgeons left a house  that  stood  ou  Chestnut street  above  Six'h.    The presence of the company  exc'    '   some   suspicion   at   Chester,  wlic.    .he party stopped for lunch, but  they liuiried dowu tho post road, tied  their-horses close to" the highway and  proceeded 200 yards behind n clump of  trees that would shield-theni from observation.     ' ...  As tho 'sun .was setting two pistol'  shots raug out simultaneously as one  of the seconds couiited "One, two, three  ���������fire!"   Hunter stood unharmed as the"  ball from his* opponent's "pistol struck  at his feet, but Miller'cried out that  he was shot, placed one'hand on his  breast  and   fell   with a  bullet  lying  close to his heart.   In a few minutes  he died, while pale and anxious.faces  watched  the convulsive  breathing of  the dying man.  "Gentlemen," said Hunter, "I had no  enmity against. this man. I never  beard of him until two days ago. Let  those whose quarrel embroiled him be  responsible for his death."  After a hurried consultation it was  decided that the midshipman should  leave the state at once, and' he was  driven rapidly to New Castle, Del.,  where he boarded a boat for New York  aud rejoined the navy. In order to  hide the tragedy it was decided to wait  until dark and take Miller to Philadelphia in a carriage.  Seating tho dead man between them,  two seconds held him in an upright  position ou the long journey to Philadelphia. News of the duel had reached  Chester, and a crowd of men stood at  Third street bridge to1 intercept the  carriages. The first buggy contained  the surgeon, aud, as his explanation  was satisfactory, he was ,permitted to  proceed. The dead man in the second  carriage was driven through the crowd  without the ruse being detected, and  at midnight the body was placed In a  house In YUlnut street, where vigil  was kept by the seconds, who drank  heavily to support them in the terrible  strain under which they had been  placed.  Miller's father said that he held no  malice against Hunter, but the midshipman, who was suspended for a  year for punishment, was haunted by  the specter of tho dead mau lying ou  the bank of Naaman's creek, slain by  his hand, and died a prematurely old  man after a lonely life, shut off from  all hope of proferment In the navy, ne  was buried by tho newspaper men of  New, York, who erected a tombstone  What you apend for underwear buys most real value  in fit, comfort, eerviee���������'  only when each garment    bears    the  bade mark in red  that, guarantees  you satisfaction  or   yout  Trade flarX  Made in many fabrics -and styles, at  various prices, , in  lorm-filting ,sizes for  e women, men and  children.

A Story of Samuel Warren and Matthew  Davenport  Hill.  Sam Warren, the author of "Ten  Thousand a Year," has been the subject of many anecdotes, none of them  better than one which I first heard related about him by his friend, Matthew  Davenport Hill.  Looking in one day at Warren's  chambers, Hill noticed that he seemed  a little troubled. "It is," said the lawyer-novelist, / "most unfortunate. I  ought to have dined tonight with the  lord chahcellorr but Mrs. Warren is  about to present me with another olive  branch. How can I leave her? I hope  his lordship won't be annoyed at ray  putting him off." "Oh." returned Hill,  "don't make yourself uneasy. I am  one of the guests. I know him so well  I can put It all right for you." With  these- words the visitor prepared to  leave the room.  At first profusely grateful, Warren  presently seemed a little perplexed and  said: "By the bye, after all. I won't  trouble you to say anything about mo  to the chancellor. Between ourselves,  I have not been Invited."  "Well," rejoined Hill, "make yourself  comfortable on that point.

Remarkable Engineering Feat.  Coal has been reached at a depth ot  1,321 Tect In Lord Londonderry's new  colliery* at Seaham harbor, in England,  after a remarkable engineering feat.  OwingNto'- the presence of enormous  quantities of water, forming a quicksand, it was found necessary to freeze  the ground to a depth of nearly 500  feet. Twenty-eight holes were bored  In a circle about the shaft to'a depth  of 484 feet, and freezing tubes were Inserted. Bilno was the medium used to  extract the hett from the strata. The  length of time required to form a wall  of Ice was 183 days, the wall being  maintained for 353 days. In the shaft  bottom the frozen sand was so hard  that It could bo penetrated only by  blasting.  A Pair of Elephant Tuekr.  An extraordinary pair of' elephant  tusks lately shown in London measure  in length eleven feet five Inches and  eleven feet respectively, but each has  n girth at the base Of only eighteen  and a half .inches, and together they  weigh but 203 pounds. Tho great  length and slcndorness of these tusks  us contrasted to the usual comparatively ohort nnd stout ones havo suggested to' Professor Rowland Ward  that there- may bo two races of elephants in east Africa, tho supposed  source of the tusks. Absence of wear  nt the end of the tusks Indicates that  the elephant differed from tho common  ones In not digging for roots.  ,-., To Cure Blushing.  - "A -great many meu blush," said a  physician; "some so painfully that they  come-to me to be cured. -  "The cure I recommend Is - an odd  one. It is the abandonment of over-  heavy clothing, especially of woolen socks.,-Amazing it is how many  male blushers' have a predilection for  thick socks of wool.  "But some blushers -wear light  enough clothes. To them I can only  recommend a nerve treatment. I advise them to make speeches at ban-,  quots, to be witnesses In murder trials,  to go to teas and dances, to develop, In  short, the nerve as a wrestler develops  his muscle.  "Blushing Is a difficult disorder to  cure. As a rule it passes away of Itself when the vlctim-rcache's his thirty-  fifth year."  The  Concierge  Is  a  Peculiar  Institution In Several Ways.  You leave your-card at the door of  the person to whom yau desire to present yourself, and there it is taken in  charge by that peculiarly French functionary, the concierge, says Professor  Barrett Wendell in Scrlbner's. At  least in Paris, the greater part of  French people live in large houses containing a number of apartments with  a - common entrance and staircase.  Close to the entrance door, on the level  of the street, are some stuffy little  rooms inhabited by tho concierge, or  porter, with his family. Their duty..  among other things, is to keep strict  watch on whoever goes in or out, and  at least one of them, often the porter's  wife or half grown daughter, is always  at band.  The chief peculiarity of their temperament,seems to be insatiable appetite.  At whatever hour of day or evening  you call on a concierge you are sure to  find somebody eating or just risen  from table, nnd the atmosphere inhabited by this bustling personage seems  immortally ladeu with the fumes of  something recently boiled.  No matter whether- you call on a  friend who .lives in some unpretentious  out of the way place or on one who  Inhabits something like a palace, the  concierge Is always about the same  You can detect little difference between those in charge of important  doors and of insignificant. They are  as like as house flies. Of course there  .are private houses in Paris, with regular domestic servants such as you  would find anywhere, but these, grand  or simple, aro so unusual that you remember the concierge as everywhere  standing between you and further human Intercourse.  In response to your card, which the  concierge duly sees delivered, comes a  card, often with a note, in return. If,  as is generally the case, this acknowledgment of your existence contains an  intimation of when your French acquaintance may be found at-home, either habitual or for your special benefit, you make your second visit at this  appointed time and thus enter into real  personal relations.  Otherwise, your Intercourse has limited itself to a polite exchange of cards.  Generally speaking, you never expect  or attempt to see French people socially  except when they have asked you to  one of their regular days of reception  or have made a definito appointment.  To call on a person at any other time-  to do more than leave your card with  the concierge���������would be an Intrusive  pretense to Intimacy.  WON  BY A  HAIR.  Lying.  It was said of Dr. Johnson that he  always talked ns though he were taking an oath.   He detested the habit of  lying or prevaricating In "the slightest degree and  would  not allow his  servants to say he was not" at home if  he  was.    "A  servant's  strict  regard  for the truth," said he, "must be weakened by such a practice.   If I accustom my servant to tell a He for me,  have I not reason to apprehend that  he will tell It for himself?'   A strict  adherence to truth the doctor considered as a sacred obligation, nnd In relating the smallest anecdote he would  not allow Uinself the minutest addition to embellish his story.

John Morrissey's Bet With Oakey.Hall  and Hubert O. Thompson. ���������  When the offices of the New.

Among these pieces of furniture was  an old horsehair sofa "which had a history all its own, for on it in both the  days of Delafleld Smith and William '  C. Whitney those people who wished  to obtain an audience of the corporation counsel were invariably invited to  sit.    .

One day John Morrissey,  Hubert O. Thompson and Oakey Hall  all arrived In the outer office at the  same time.,  The three men exchanged greetings,  and all three sat down on the old sofa.  Morrissey was fingering the horsehair  cloth when he came across a hair. His  betting Instinct at once manifested  itself.  "I will bet either of you gentlemen,"  ho said, "a thousand dollars that I can  pull a longer hair out of tills sofa than  either.of you."  Oakey Hall took it up. "I will bet  you a thousand," he replied.  Not to be outdone, Ilubert O. Thompson said he would take a hand in the  game also.

But there are others still alive who remember the shout of boyish glee with  which Morrissey held up a hair nearly  two feet long.
