HE TOOK THE CAKE.
A Story of William Black, the Novel-
ist, and Mary Anderson.
One time when Mary Anderson was
playing in "The Winter's Tale," in
Dublin, William Black, the novelist,
who was very intimate with Miss An-
derson and her family, insisted upon
assuming the part of one of the supers,
who was dressed as a very old man
with a venerable beard and locks that
fell upon his shoulders: When Black
went upon the stagte in this disguise
he walked about among his fellow
supers with unceasing restlessness
and, judging by the wild motions of bis
arms, seemed to be addressing to each
in turn an impassioned harangue. The
audience began to wonder who the
new actor was and what on earth be
was doing in a play in which neither
Shakespeare nor the stage managers
ever intended him to appear.
Presently came the time when It
was the business of Perdita to distrib-
ute flowers among the peasants, among
whom Black had his place. Miss An-
derson. carrying on the practical jokes
of the family circle, had prepared a
surprise for this moment, and, having
distributed flowers among the less fa-
vored supers, she handed to Black a
large cake crowned with a wreath of
laurel, saying as she did so, "You take
it," in allusion to his triumphs in the
contest of wits at the supper table
To her consternation. Black showed
that he was quite prepared to carry
out the jest, for, taking the cake from
the hands of Perdita, he immediately
distributed it in substantial portions to
his hungry fellow suppers, who, find-
ing it to be of excellent quality, be-
gan to munch it greedily under the
eyes of the house.—Exchange.
Elephants' Love For Finery.
Strange as it may seem, the elephant
is passionately fond of finery and de-
lights to see himself decked out with
gorgeous trappings. The native princes
of India are very particular in choos-
ing tbelr state elephants and will give
fabulous sums for an animal that ex-
actly meets the somewhat fanciful
standards they have erected. For these
they have made cloths of silk so heavi-
ly embroidered with gold that two men
are hardly able to lift them.—Pearson's
Force of Habit.
"I understand that all s^r cast was
"Yes; they played poorly for stars.
Even the life they put into the mob
scene was accidental and came about
merely through each of them trying
to grab the center of the stage."—Phil-
"What men think," remarked the
knowing woman, "causes fully one-
third of all the trouble in the world."
"Yes," rejoined the mere man. "and
what women say causes the other two-
