Englishman Deeply Shucked. The Englishman will condone every dereliction except an infringement of custom and tradition. Talking together in the smoking room of the Hotel Me-tropole Me-tropole one evening not long ago, a party of gentlemen discussed the peculiarities of appetite. One of the party said he had seen, a few days previous, a friend eating mustard on his roast mutton. General surprise was expressed by tho others in the party; one Englishman was deeply shocked, and I shall never forget tho pathos in his tones as he asked: "I beg your pardon, sir, but did the follow live?"
