Do yon kuv.'W a pretty girl when yon SCO one?
Suppose you were to form a oominittoo of ono and were to pass upon the idative merits of lioaut.v of tlie holies of the United Kingdom.
Would you choose Lady Marjorie, tlie eldest daugliter f>f the Duke of Rnthuid, as the highest type of liouiily that Eng- | land has produced? i
Just now there is considerable discus- 1 sion going on in the ilrawing rooms of the nohilily because it was said that King Edwerd. in an unguardod moment, gave it as his opinion tiiat I^ady Mar-.lorie was the truest type of Biitish heauty—suoh a woman in fact as he was seldom able to meet.
On the .strength of this many of I^ady Marjorie’s opponents said that slie went
The Frenclimnn’s face was hacked and notched.
"Havc yon been a duelist?" one asked. "No, no," tiro man rr plied. "I have been a champngno maker.’’ He touched ills face. "These horrible nicks," lie said, “are champagne scars.
"Champagne sears.’’ he went on. "decorate tile visiigis of all tlie workers In the iinderKi'oiind champagne nillls of Rheims. They are caused 1»y tlie bursting of the bottles. About one bottle of champagne in every ten bnrsts,

And the glass spllnter.s fiy, and a little fountain of champagne perfume.s tlie damp air.
"Day after day each bottle must be turned, turned aO times altogethei. till tbe sediment in it has all mounted up and concentrated itself about the cork. Then the corkers remove the corks, let the sedlmejit-thlekcnf d win. in the neck of the bottle blow off, and .«kilfully replace the cork again.
"The eorker.s’ and turners’ work is dangerous. These men Are nearly all scarred like me.’’
Thomas Jeffer.son and a publisher’s reader, according to tlie former’s press agent, met one day in New York.
The talk turned to literature, and the reauer mentioned that a novel, after thirteen rejeetioiis. had been accepted liy him and gained fcr liis lionse nearly $100,000.
"A mighty good book it Is, too," said tlie render. "Have you re.ad it?"

"Well, what do you think of it?" "There is only one thing to l.e said in its f.ivor," Mr. Jefferson answered. "A friend of mine, during tlie Spnnish-Am-erican war, carried it in his breast pocket, and a ball rleoeheted against his ribs, but the book saved him.

The new Senator is still a member of that aristocratic old social organization of New Bedford, the Wamsutta Club.
It is said of him that at d.I he much resemble» in many personal traits hi.s father, of whom many interesting hucm-dotes are still remembered, both at Bourne and in New Bedford. At the head of Merrill’s wharf, in the old whaling port, he formerly had his offlice, a little, undignified, mucli-tob<acco-stained plac:*, from w'hic’h he transacted his immense whaling busines.s.
At noontime the old man would always walk home, where his favorite meal was a codfish dinner. After dinner, when the things were cleared away. It was not an unu.sual thing witli him to sit at the table with a companion and match pennies for a half-hour, taking a keen delight in the eliances of t’ne sport, as though he was in a deal which Involved a few hundred thousand.
Friend of Governor Robinson
Johathan, Sr.. while not greatly Inclined to politics, nevertheless felt strongly upon all the momentous questions of his day, and, owing to his personal friendship with Governor Robinson of this State, he was at one time a member of his Council.
The new Senator is today president of the exclusive Arlington Club of Portland.
In 1893 he was married to Miss Lillian E. Wyatt, the daughter of two of Oregon’s pioneers.
Few men in southeastern New England have been more popular than was his father, who, in spite of his shrew’dness in a dicker or a business deal, was always regarded as the .soul of hospitality, fra ik-ness and good nature.

The fourth Earl Stanhope, when on his homeward way late one dark night, was held up by the most gentlemanly of highwaymen, who preferred his reque.st for money or the nobleman’s life in quite the nicest way. It happened that Lord Stanhope had not any money with him and was disinclined to yield the alternative.
"Your watch, then," suggested the gentleman at the opposite end of the pistol. That watch, the earl explained, was dear to him. He valued it at BX) guineas and would not surrender It. "What I will do,” he said, "is to bring and deposit in thi.s tree the worth of the watch in money, and you can call and get it tomorrow night.”
“Done, m’ lord," said the highwayman.
The law knew nothing about this arrangement, and the earl did as lie had promised. He placed the 100 guineas where the highwayman might at hi.s leisure collect it. And there, so far as lie knew, the matter ended.
Years afterward ho attended a great banquet in the city, and found himself pleasantly entertained by an extremely well-known man. whose signature was good for a sum in several figures. Next day came to Lord Stanhope a letter inclos-.irig the sum of tOO guinea.s. Accompanying it was a note begging hi.s acceptance of a loan granted some year previously to the man wlio now forwarded it.
That loan, said the letter, had enabled the sender to gain a new start in life, to make a fortune and to renew acquaintance at dinner on tlie previous night with lii.s lordship. The city magnate and the highwayman of earlier days wore one and tlie same.—I.ondon Standard.
