What the Wave3 Said.
From Washington Litter to Vie Baltimore
The following story on Second Assistant
Postmaster General Knott is too good to bo
lost, and Mr. Knott himself is too keen a
humorist to be wanting in appreciation of
it. As is well known, Mr. Knott aspires to
be Governor of Maryland, of which laud
able ambition he makes no secret. Some
time ago ho went to Atlantic City for
several days, and one evening, when the
tide was low—“so tho story runs”—he took
a walk along the seashore. Yielding to the
irresistible influence of his surroundings, he
gave himself up to the sentimental part of
his nature, ana as he looked out upon the
ocean ami then upon the waves that broke
musically at lii.s feet, he thoughtfully
paused and traced some letters in the sand.
A gentleman who sat upon the porch of one
of the hotels came along after him and read
the inscription. It was:
“What are the wild waves saying?” He,
too, paused a moment, and when Mr. Knott
returned that way he saw immediately
under his words the following strange in
“No G Konfortovenrort..”
Ho looked at it carefully for some time, as
if endeavoring to decipher the unknown
characters. Tiu-n he stepped closer and put
on his gla-ses. Being still unable to make
them out, he readjusted his glasses, and,
taking out a pencil and paper, lie carefully
transcribed each letter and returned to the
hotel. Tin’ llrst man he saw was the gentle
man who had passed along the brack behind
him. Handing him the paper, he said:
“Hera’s a strange inscription l found
upon the bench a while ago. What do you
think of it?”
The gentleman g)ane<-d at. it a moment
and replied: “Oh, some little child scratch
ed it in the sand, I guess. But give it to
me. and I will wv it mere is anything in it.”
The paper and pencil were accordingly
handed over, while Mr. Knott seated him
self and waited for the result. After some
