I'l'lm, while making a tour around tho
eoi Id, win painfully Impressed by thu fact
that a iKipulnr piece of music, lu which there
aru "vnln reietitioiis,n tuny become Irritat
ing. HoHlJHi
On our tour, in nearly every church w hero
o preached or worshiped which had a choir
i f some, pretensions, wo heard tho piece,
'Consider tho Lilies," which hi song, liold
and lllghty, told us five or six times that
Solomon was "not urrajed."
For tho llrst two or three times wo did not
consider the gravity of the matter, but finally
became a little restive over Solomon's con
dition, w hen it wns related and emphasized
in moderate tones, in tenderness mid lu hhtli
sounding tones, in trills, in shrieks, thnt
"Solomon was not m rayed;" mid what wns
more embarrassing, the singers sometimes
looked nnd bow-ej to us, as if wo wero to
blame for It
When we reached Hin Frnnelsco, wo
thought, "this will end this Solomon busi
ness.'' Wo supKsed that It wns n favorite
In thu east because he had his bringing up
there; but, to our amazement, wo heard it in
three churches in Mm Occident as woll as
orient, that "Solomon wns not arrayed.'
In tho east (here was appropriateness in It,
w hero nobody is much nrrayed. Hut when
wo heard ngiilu In Saratoga, on different oc
casions, that "Solomon was not arrayed,"
from four to six times right along, nnd In a
mniiiur that could leave no doubt, mid when
significant movements of tho head were mada
at us, we felt that It was tlmothat something
should lie done without fail. Lot n collection

3omoof Mio best bargains thnt swell the

by pure luck; at least, so It seems to, con
sidering the time. I havo been hi the business.
One iliy a man came into my hoo!;stnll and
inquired for a certain book on thu entomology
of Missouri. I did not hnvo It, mid learned
that it wns published no more. Ho told mo
to sou if 1 could find the book for him.
I kept n "skinned eyu" on tho lookout for
tho volume, but yet know lug It was uext to
lm)ossiblo to II tul it. Purely by uccldent,
though, 1 hapixmed to see the identical book
w hllu I wns purchasing severul volumes hi a
private library. I olTered fifty cents for tho
book, nnd It was accepted, tho man saying
that It was of no use anymore. Two days
after, my customer who was Interested iu en
tomology called, and ho couldn't get a (A bill
out of his pocket quick enough to satisfy his
hasto hi exchanging that for the book. There
wero S l.fjO clean prollt made on n liook that
will not lw called for onco In two years.
Those who lu. crest themselves In bugs nro
fow, but they seuin to pay good prices for
their books. Uut this wasn't a skin game on
my part, for tho book was actually worth C5
to our trade mid to tho man who makes a
study of bugs. Another peculiar trait of
those who buy second hand books was dis
played by this entomologist. Ho had a book
containing tho same text from tho nuthor,
but from an edition which omitted ono pago
on which several plates or pictures of bugs in
their natural colors were represented. Hence,
ho literally nld i!i to get that slnglo pago
out of my book. Dealer In St. LouU Globo

There Is no end to things jwoplo w 111 try to
contrive w lth tho aid of electricity. A queer
looking little old fellow came Into my otllco
last week with a liox thnt contained a scheme,
ho oxclalnod, w hich, by attaching to a door,
or drawer lock, would ring a bell which could
bo placed anywhere chosen. This bell would
keep on ringing, too, until some one on tho
inside of the door would shut It olf, Hy a
simple combination latch, the electricity can
be shut oil' iu tho daytime. Hut most pecul
iar Is It that the old man proposes a scheme
by which ho can surround a window or other
oiitrauco so that, by sensitized plate, If n per
son jmsses through It tho boll will ring and
keep on until stopped. This, too, can bo shut
olT at tho will of tho occupants. It seems
feasible, mid if ho succeeds will yield an ef
fective and cheap security against burglars.
