A poctio lover who undertook tho de

yond somo stupidly inflated general
ties. Josh Billings truthfully obsorves that
tho moro a man tries to analyzo a kiss
tho moro ho can't, and he boliovcs that
tho only real way to defino a kiss is to
tako ono. Kisses, of course, vaiy con.
sldcrably. Thero aro tho formal kiss

A curious case of osculation is re
ported from across the Atlantic. Somo
time ago a Mr. Finch, who was in tho
jowelry business in Newborn, United
States, sold to a young lady named
' Miss Waters what was described as a
beautiful set of real jet, tho bargain
being that ho was to receive in pay
,mcnt thereof ono hundred kisses, to bo
paid at tho iato of ono kiss daily. Mr.
Finch was to call at the young lady's
honso every morning, Sundays except
ed, to receivo hij daily kiss, which
Miss Waters undertook" and promised
to duly deliver to him. For thiry con
secutive days Sundays excepted Mr.
Finch punctually called upon Miss
Waters and duely received tho stipu
lated salutation. On the thirty-first
day, however, Mr. Finch made a for
mal complaint that Miss Waters was
not fulfilling her contract, inasmuch as
sho insisted upon permitting him to
kiss her cheek only. Ho maintained
that this did not constitute) a legal kiss
and demanded that ho should bo allow
ed to put his arm around her waist nnd
kiss her in tho highest stylo of tho art.
To this, however, a firm refusal was
returned. Tho lady offered Mr. Finch
a choico of cheeks, but insisted that
tho contract would not bear tho con
struction ho put upon it. Thereupon
ivr :., .. :.i: i...li..
an action for breach of contract against
This action raised sovcral now and
interesting questions, among tho most
important of which was, what consti
tuted, in the oyo of tho law, a kiss 1
Tho plaintiff set up tho further plea
that thero was a difference between
active and passive kisses j that Miss
Waters had promised to givo him a
certain number of kisses not merely
to allow him to tako them and that
giving them was an act which required
,Uio uso of tho lips. Tho caso was the
subject of considerable controversy in
tho press and elsowhere ; but tho wri
ter, unfortunately, has never been able
to discover the result of tho legal pro
ceedings which were instituted, and
has concluded that a compromise of
some Bort must, as was at ono timo ox
pected, havo been brought about.
An equally remarkably kissing
traction occurred not long ago in Aus
tria. In this instanco a kiss was ac
tually put up for sale by auction and
publicly bestowed upon tho highest
bidder. Tho occasion was a eharity
fcto got up in tho little town of Torau
al on behalf of tho poor at Agrara. Tho
well meant endeavors of tho benevo
lent ladies and gentlemen who acted as
salesmen and stallholders to induco
visitors to purchase trifles exposed for
ealo at twenty times their value had
not succeed. Business was not brisk.
Tho public who filled tho sallo wero
not in a generous mood, and tho orga
nizer of tho fetoworo disheartened.
At this juncture one of tho lady pat
ronesses, a remarkably beautiful wo
man, had what sho thought a happy
inspiration. Sho took her husband
aside, conferred with iura a fow
minutes, and shortly after, with his
consent, offored a kiss to tho highest
bidder, the sura paid for tho favor to
bo added to tho receipts of tho fete.
Tho result of this novel idea hardly
came up to what was anticipated. Very
low bidswero at first offered by tho young
men for, of course, tho feminine por
tion of tho visitors wero not tempted
by tho opportunity and ultimately tho
kiss was knocked down at tho relative
paltry figuro of fifteen florins and eloven
kreuzers. Tho husband of the lady,
seeing tho slight storo set by tho ravor,
offerod to pay tho amount himself and
tako tho kiss, but tho claimant had al
ready handod over thn mouoy, and as
he rofuscd to agroo to the bargain bo.
ing canceled, tho kiss was exchanged
boforo tho assembled company.
A young lady reading in a news
paper the other day of a girl having
been mado crazy by a sudden kiss,
called tho attontion of her undo, who
was in tho room, to that rather singu
lar occurrence, whereupon tho old gen
tleman grullly demanded what tho fool
had gono crazy for. "What did sho
go orazy for T" archly returned tho in
genious maiden j "why, for more, I sup

rather thickly on a plain tin mould
which will hold about threo pints, and
