this philosopher was discovering them
all and noting them on the flyleaf at the

book, as some might have thought from
his behavior, or even to answer it in a
work of his own. It was just that he
found a pleasure in stripping any poor
fallacy naked and crucifying it
Presently a girl in a white frock came

"Ah, you return to that hypothesis! I
think it's an extremely fanciful one.
No, she needn't marry A, but she must

his eyes rested in calm contemplation on

"A beautiful thing sunshine, to be

her lips closed. Without speaking she

a local disease, and prescribed local

cure with local treatment, pronounced it
incurable. Science has proven catnrrh

rather uncomfortable, and I reckoned
they wero getting scared and wished
they'd staid at home. That wasn't

WILD BEASTS IN DEMAND.
Just at Frcscat Mcnaserles and Zoological
Gardens Aro Short on Untamed Animals.
Thero is a sudden and unprecedented
increaso in tho demand for wild animals
at present not only for tho continent
but for the United States. The stocks in
most of tho European zoological gardens
havo decreased of late, a shrinkage part
ly caused by the closure of tho Sudan
by the dervishes.
In America tho popularity of the great
menagerie at the World's fair has cre
ated a sudden demand for wild nnimlg
of all kinds. Circuses and private men
ageries are competing with tho zoolog
ical gardens and scientific societies for
rare and interesting animals, and the
demand for America is far greater than
for tho continent of Europe. v
After five or six years of neglect thero
is such a boom in tho wild beast trade as
is hardly remembered. Until the expe
ditions which Hagenbeck and others
have dispatched into central Africa, via
Berbera, and into Borneo and the west
coast of Africa, return, there is little to
fall back upon but the average supply
which arrives without system and in

agent from the PMladelphia Zoolog

A NEGRO PLAYS SPOOK.

Has Disturbed Them.
It turns out that the spook that has
been making life a burden for tho citi
zens of Middlopoinr, O., and the Pitts
burg, Fort Wayno and Chicago railroad
men is a human being, and a colored
person at that. The citizens of that place
were determined to solve the. mystery,
and a reward of o0 was offered to any
one who would spend a night at tho
water station and capture tho ghostly
specter. Failing to find any one who
would undertake the task, they appoint
ed a committee to investigate.
Thursday night the committee, which
was composed of three men, two shot
guns, ono revolver and a braco of bull
dogs, started for tho water station and
secreted themselves in tho pumphouse.
They watched in silenco until about 11
O'clock, when a man was seen making
nis way across aUeld to tho station. Ho
ensconsed himself behind tho water tank
and prepared for his work by placing a
sheet over his head and a football that
had been painted white in his left hand.
He had not long to wait for a victim. A
young man was returning from a spell
ing match with his best girl, and when
they wero within 50 feet of the station
tho spook noiselessly mado its way to
the railroad end stationed itself between
the rails. Tho sight of the specter was
too much for tho young man's nerves, and

Alice Ayres, a London servant, saved

expensive monument over her grave and

At this point the committee swooped
down upon tho spook and captured it
after a chaso of half a mile. The sheet
was removed, and the spook was recog
