Wrong Estimate of f uccess.
Dr. Eliot, lately president of Har
vard University, said recently ut a to
reptlon In New York: "My career ap
pears to strike a considerable numlx-r
nf people ns a successful fine. ivopln
roncratulate me on what they call my
success. But my career has certainly
not been successful In what is con
sidered to bo the American Idea of
success In a pecuniary way. It Is a
success In terms of service service
to the community. Now. docs not this
refute the common opinion that the
American estimate of success Is n i o
miliary one?" Dr. Eliot then related
un Incident In one of his travels by
boat when tho vessel's t Hirers camo
to hlni and said: "We officers want
to ask you a question. We know you
are a smart man. We want to know
why. being a smart man, you are not
rich?" Dr. Eliot did not repeat his re
ply, but concluded his remarks on tho
subject by saying: "The real Ameri
can estimate of success in the world
Is servlceableness and not wealth."
A young fellow In Itloomlngton. UK,
who has been devoting himself for
some years to a young woman of that
town, recently found himself In a most
embarrassing situation Just as he h::d
taken his courage In both hands nnd
was "going to ask the girl."
"Harriet," he said, as he shifted
his feet uneasily and swallowed thn
lump In his throat, "I'm anxious to
have you "
"Yes, Mr. Hummer," gently Inter
posed the young woman, by way of
"Well er Harriet," he again be
gan, "I'm anxious to have you"
Just then both parents 1 1 the young
lady entered the room where the lov
"Oh, Mr. Hummer." said the des
perate girl, "what was It you were
Just telling me?" Harper's Weekly.
Photograph of the Hand.
A novel method of Identifying crimi
nals with absolute certainty has been
devised by Prof. Tamassla. Wlten
comparing the veins on the bnck of
both hands a striking diversity will bo
observed. Far more important, how
ever, are the differences noted in the
hands of different persons. In order
to cause the veins to stand out more
distinctly the wrist should be band
aged for a short time. Their courses
can then be photographed.
Owing to the size of the hand it Is
far easier to discover slight diversi
ties than In minute prints of linger
tips. Nor can any voluntary altera
tion of the vein tissues be feu cd. un
less the hand should be seriously In
jured. Scientific American.
The manager of the side show
mounted the platform. n
"And here, ladies and gentlemen,
he remarked impressively, as he
placed his hand on the long, flowins
locks of a pale young man, "we have
one of the greatest curiosities this
broad country has ever known."
"And what Is so virions about
him?" asked a voice In the crowd.
"Why, ladies and gentlemen, he la
a real, live dyed-in-the-wool Indiana
poet who has written a score of poems
this spring and not once has men
tioned the word 'fishing.' "
Negro's Remarkable Memory.
A remarkable man Is tho negro who
checks hats In the United States ho
tel In Saratoga. The dining room
there seats In the neighborhood or
1.000 persons. Every man who enters
tho dining room hands his hat to the
negro at the door, but receives no
i heck in return. During luncheon or
r.lnner probably 750 hats are haiuU J
to him. Yet when each diner coau-s
out the negro gets his hat without a
moment's hesitation, and never make

While he was In the I'nlted States

their mountain home In Vermont. Ono
of the latter was looking out of the
window thinking of her father and
wishinj; that she could see him, when
a donkey In a contiguous pasture

over the top rail, and brayed most
dolefully. The child wiped a few lone

very good success In boiling eggs. Sir
