A wdely known novelist vat
«board the steamer Megantic at
Montreal, and just before the vessel
left on its trip for Liverpool was
watching the loading of an enormous
quantity of Canadian cheeses.
A number of school teachers wore
on tbe boat, bound for Quebec, and
thf o young women were very much
interested in the loading of the
cheese. One of them asked the nov-
elist how many there were.
"The Megantic takes on from 15,-
000 to 25,000 cheeses every trip," he
truthfully informed her.
"How many people are there on
board?" she asked.
"About twelve hundred this trip.
For a moment the young woman
regarded him in astonishment; then
she looked at the cheeses being load-
ed hy the hundred. "It's truly won
derf ul I" she gaaped. "1 never would
have believed it if I had not seen
them with my own eyes! And only
twelve hundred people I Goodness

X. t, aiw noted for their courtesy
Too ladies, in a little town in north-
ern New York, who hsd not met for
some time, met one dsy on the rail-
road track which runs through the
main street of the town. Their meet-
ing was marked by many exclama-
tions and embraces. The train pulled
in at the station, near where thr
ladies stood chatting. The passen-
gers got off. The trunks were trun-
dled away. Still the train did not
?o on. After about twenty minute?
the engineer alighted and stepped up
to the ladies. Politely removing hi*
cap, he remarked, "Pardon me, la-
dies, for interrupting you; but we
had planned on reaching Potsdam
(his morning, and if you would not
mind stepping off the truck we will
lie moving along."
HOW TIME 18 SPENT.
Sydney Smith once made an elab-
orate calculation as to the way
people apportion their time in thr
course of a long life. When he waj-
•eventy-two he remarked to a girl he
met, "Do you ever reflect how you
pass yonr life? If you live to b -
my age, which I hope you may, your
life is passed in the following man-
ner: An hour a day is three years.
This makes twenty-seven years sleep-
ing; nine years dressing; nine yean
walking; nine years at table; six
years playing with children; nine
years walking, drawing and visiting;
six yeara shopping; and three years
