QUITE A DIFFERENCE

  When the Baroness Burdett-Coutts was Miss Coutts, the great heiress, it was rumored that she was to wed the Duke of Wellington. A friend asked the duke if the rumor was true, and the duke answered irritably:

"I said Miss Angela Coutts deserved to be a Dutchess. I never said that I would make her one."

This observation of the duke's was repeated to the heiress. She flushed on hearing it, smiled a little bitterly and remarked:

"The duke should have said could, not would."

HIS ONLY SUBJECT

  Mile van Vorst in a recent book tells a story of a dinner at Chicago given by the ambitious wife of a millionaire tanner. The lady noticed, to her annoyance, that her husband did not speak a word to their smart guests, and when she got an opportunity she whispered angrily. "Why don't you talk?"

"What's the good?" replied the tanner contemptuously. "There aint one of 'em as knows a thing about leather."

AN ODD BUSINESS

  "Insurance people are queer."

"How so?"

"First they convince you that you may die within a week to get you to apply for a policy; then you must convince themselves that you'll live for years and years before they'll issue it."
