Vivid Pen Portrait of
Bismarck in His Prime
Since I was seated directly opposite
to Bismarck during the long discus-
sion after dinner (Bamberger writes
on January 26, 1873), I could observe
his features for the hundredth time.
The forehead (s not as prominent as
is generally believed. What Is con-
spicuous Is the os frontale, (frontal
bone), and its prominence is accentu-
ated by the thick, untidy, bushy eye-
browa The brsin seemed to lie di-
rectly behind the forehead. He has
a small,# flat, Mongolian nose. The
mouth Is by far and away the most
Interesting and characteristic feature.
It Is only possibly to catch occasional
glimpses of it beneath the concealing
mustache. Although In ordinary con-
versation a half-smiling, almost effemi-
nate expression Is conveyed by these
thick wide lips, Immediately behliqj
lies something menacing and almost
predatory. This laughing gentle mouth
can of a sudden change Into that
of a wild beast and devour Its prey.
His chin Is pulTy and upturned like a
fleshy saucer. The expression of the
clear observant eyes is at once sus-
picious and friendly, coldly glittering
and determined. Unless he deliber-
ately wishes to reveal his feelings It
Is Impossible to tell from his eyes
what Is passing through his mind.—
From the Diary of Ludwig Bamberger.
Wealth of Quotations
in Shakespeare's Works
Read a scene from Shakespeare’s
plays every day. SooH you can out-
quote everybody in your circle and ag-
gravate them. Aren’t we all strug-
gling for superiority? What an easy
way to gain It—and at the expense
of only slight application. Shake-
speare is the most quotattte^of all the
human race; and every one has gone
to that fount of quaint English and
untarnished wit—and got his quotation
, wrong. \
That is why we have the Shake-
speare concordance and Bartlett.
They are useful In finding out that
what yon want to quote Is not In
Shakespeare at all; such as “What
Is so rare as a day In June?’’ which
we once attributed to Longfellow
(and got seven letters setting us
right); and “Spare the rod and spoil
the child.’’ Mr. Shakespeare might
have said that in his mature years,
after his youthful experience with
Magistrate Thomas Lucy, but he did
not, at least not in those words.
If there is anything that William
Shakespeare did not say clothed In
brilliant verbiage It would be hard to
find. Read him and see. Sir Francis
Bacon had no such command of his
English, scholarly as he was.—St
In any small town the way of the
transgressor is heard.

man is the slippery elm.

The Ideal Job
The hours are from too early In the
morning for a girl to be expected to
wash the breakfast dishes until too
late for her to help her mother get
The salary is too low for her to feel
she ought to contribute at home and
high enough to permit her to wear
as few clothes as any girl In the office.
The work Is hard enough to make
her mother Insist on the utmost rec-
reation and easy enough to allow her
strength for the Black Bottom.
The boss Is handsome and single.
The office is close to the station,
with three good drug stores in the
same block.—McCready Huston.

Jumbo Not Largest Elephant
Jumbo, the famous elephant of the
Barnum & Bailey circus, was 10 feet
10 Inches tall and weighed approxi-
mately six tons. Jumbo was one of
the largest elephants ever In captivity,
but there are records of larger ele-
phants which were not taken alive,
but killed. One elephant shot In East
Africa measured 11 feet 814 Inches at
the shoulder, had a total length from
trunk to end of tall of 15 feet 5 Inches
and a girth of forefoot of 5 feet 514

T ILI.1AN JAFFREY8 came out of
the gatee which gave entrance to
the grounds surrounding her father's
country house and waved her hand at
Tom Colllngwocd as he went by In his
flivver. Lillian was dressed as became
the daughter of a “magnate.” She
smiled a bewitching, careless smile at
Toro as she waved her little hand In
his direction; one would have thought
her the most carefree young beauty In
all the world. But her whole expres-
sion changed when the flivver had
passed. A perplexed look wrinkled
her brow and her eyes took on a pen-
The young man to whom she had
waved had answered her greeting with
a polite, but formal, bow and had
looked at her In a manner which was
neither one of reproach nor of Indif-
ference, but a compound of the two.
And withal there had been something
like defiance in his look and manner
as If he said: “No, I thank you; once
bitten twice shy. All your pretty ways
cannot lure me back again. I am
quite satisfied to have learned my les-
son.” And Lillian felt It; felt It as
distinctly as If she had heard him say
it In so many words.
For there was no denying that Lil-
lian had given every encouragement
to Tom—and had then thrown him
over. Yes, Lillian had done all this
and now she was sorry for It. She
tried to tell herself that there was
no use crying over spilt milk; but
even that venerable saying did not
seem to fill the bill. What she wanted
out of the past was not a wise
proverb but Tom.
It was not because her parents had
objected to her marrying Tom that
Lillian had rejected him. He was
not wealthy, to be sure, but he came
of a good family, was an exemplary
and rising young man holding down a
responsible Job. Mr. and Mrs. Jaf-
freys desired only that their daugh-
ter should be happy In her marriage
and considered that Tom was the very
one to make her happy. But when
they found that Lillian had rejected
him they took It for granted that she
knew best, and let It go at that.
If there had been a little opposition
to the marrying, had their love-making
not run along in such quiet lines, so
much of taking everything for grant-
ed, It Is likely that Lillian would
have uttered a yes as emphatic as her
no when Tom asked her to be his
And so It had been with Lillian as
regarded Tom. But now that he was
decidedly "around the corner," as far
ns she was concerned, she found that
she wanted him back more than any-
thing in all this world.
When she first realized this she
had thought: "Oh, well; he Is In love
with me and all I have got to do Is
Just show him I really did not mean It
when I said “No." 1 can whistle him
back all right.” But now she was be-
ginning to realize that Tom could not
he whistled back as easily as she had
That day when she had strolled out
of her father’s gates to see Tom pass,
ind had seen her sweetest smile an-
swered by him In that unresponsive
manner, Lillian, after a fit of deep
despondency, resolved upon drastic
measures. She would write a letter
to Tom In which she would acknowl-
edge her mistake, tell him how much
she really loved him, beg his pardon
for her flighty conduct and offer him
a yes If he would take It. Of course,
If It were true that he had ceased to
love her, this would place her In a
most humiliating position and expose
her to a rebuff which would break her
heart But she didn't care; she could
not stand things going on in this way
any longer. So she went home, wrote
a letter upon lines Indicated, and sent
It to the post office.
Tom would not get it until the next
mi ming, she thought—she knew he
seldom went to the post office In the
little neighboring village for the eve-
ning mall. And she passed a most
miserable night. Then the thought
occurred to her that perhaps Tom
would go for his evening mall and get
her letter, would answer It one way
or the other right off, and she would
get the answer In the morning.
Right after breakfast next morning
she was In- her little roadster motor-
ing down to the village post office.
As she entered the door she and Tom
“Did—did you get my letter?" she
faltered with a blush.
“No," replied Tom, “did you get
“Why, no! Did you write?" she
cried—and hastened to her letter box.
Tom rushed around to his. In a
couple of minutes they had another
narrow escape from coltlslon in front
of the delivery window.
“Oh Tom, I am eo glad,” cried Lil-
And “Oh Lillian, what a Jewel of a
girl vou are," said Tom.
Conservative - Accomodative- Appreciative
You know what Lillian had written.
Tom had written that he could stand
It no longer: that he had tried to be
Indifferent and couldn’t manage It.
Would not Lillian reconsider?
There Is not much more to tell.
Yon know from your own experience,
gentle reader, how happy lovers are
when they have made up after an es-
trangement. Tom and Lillian each
keep the letter the other had written
and, now that they are married,
whenever there Is a hint of the ap
proach of a family misunderstanding
those letters are rend over ugain-
nnd all is at once serene.
To think of others Is decided-
ly a good thing. The result of such a
process should be either a temperate
self-satisfaction or a clear-sighted res-
ignation. But the ways of science are
not always those of the heart, and
that we are less miserable than some
people Is not a consolation for being
more unhappy than others—least of
all when the happy are before our eyes
and the wretched farther off. Neither
the preacher of Brantley's doctrine
tior Its hearer was converted.—An-
