The water supply of London is bad
enough at its best. At its worst, in the
Avinter, it is too bad for words. Nobody
but these ilroll people would submit,
year after year, to the ridiculous system
of supply aud the outrageous charges.
Lut the Briton is a patient soul. He be
lieves that whatever he has is the best of
its kind, and h-i resents any suggestion
to the contrary. A water supply that
was .good enough for his grandfather is
good enough for him; moreover, it is
good enough for you. There's the rub
of tiie argument, "It's good enough for
you." Why, in the name of justice,
should you, a foreigner, complain? Out
upon you for an ungrateful alien.

Kilkenny Cats.
During the rebellion which occurred
in Ireland in 17'jS, or it may be in l?u:J.
Kilkenny was garrisoned by a troop of
Hessian soldiers, who amused themselves
in barracks by tying two cats together
by their tails and throwing them across
a" clothes line to light. The fiieers,
hearing of this cruel practice, resolved
to stop it. As he entered tho room one
of the troopers, seizing a sword, eut the
tails in two as the animals hung across
the line. The two cats escaped, minus
their tails, through the open window,
and when the officer inquired the mean
ing of the two bleeding tails being left
in the room, he was coolly told that two
cats had been fighting, and had devoured
each other all but the tails. Notes and

In a gilded cage in the top Hat of a
big hou.-e in E.-t Sixteenth street is a
little ball of yellow feathers that is cared
for as tenderly as any baby iu the land.
It i-s only a very tiny canary bird, wilh
the unpretentious name of 1 )ick, but in
Fpite of its size and its name it is t he
master of a great wealth of music.
Dick never knew the pleasures of lib
erty, having been lK.rn of captive pa
rents in another gilded cage in another
big flat farther up town. Up to the
time when he was (i months old he
never did anything that wa-s worthy of
e.-'K-cial attention. Then he was re
moved from the parental cage and a pri
vate cage was bought for him, ami lie
was sent down town under t lie charge
of a harum scarum lxy as a present to
four young nnn who lived in a flat in
Ninth street.
He was accepted as a matter of cour
tesy, and the cage which imprisoned him
was hung on a siring in a rear window,
and the servant was instructed to feed
him whenever it l-camo necessary. The
young men were free and easy, and it
was their habit to lean out of this win
dow in their idle moments ami whist le
at Blind Tom, who ued to exercise on
the rear piazza of a house on Eighth
street, ami at other times to whistle at
the neighbors' daughters in the nearby

du:k i;;:gins to simj.
Nobody paid any attention to Dick
until one morning when the sun shone
on him, making his yellow feathers glow
like a burnished lump of gold, lie trilled
a bar or two sweet enough to attract the
young men's attention. One of them
whistled, and ho instantly caught tho
refrain and turned it promptly. Noth
ing more was needed to make him a
great favorite, and one of the young men
poked a finger at him playfully. Dick
did not flutter away in fear, but hopped
toward the finger, and with outstretched
wings, picked at it fiercely, and at the
same time pecked his way into the hearts
of all the occupants of the flat.
After that incident it was a wonder
that Dick's health and morals were not
ruined, for the young men insisted
on feeding him all sorts of stuff and
whistled all the vulgar airs of the day.
But no matter what kind of food was
offered to him, he ate it promptly and
seemed to thrive, and no matter how
vulgar the air that was whistled, he re
peated it with a sweetness ami clearness
that would have filled the author's soul
with delight.
One morning the door of Dick's eng.
wis opened, and became out and looked
about him with a great expression o!'
wonder in his little bead like ryes. Tr- n
lie piped forth a l;-v low strains, i;ew 1
the table, and began to peck a loaf of
'I wish lie was bigger, so I could pet
him." said one of the big men.
Every morning afterward Dick had
breaid'ast with tin; young n--n. He
would hop on the tab!.-, saioplii-g every
thing be came acr. -s. and ball. nig fre
iir.eutly in the gobi- ts of i. w;.l--r.
Breakfast over, Dick would 1'y b.-i'-k to
his cage, and ge tting into tie.-bub.-swing
at the top of it, would sway madly to
and fro, ami sing everything ho knew.
That was regarded as an oUVring of
praise, and quiet reigned during the per
formance. LICK'S THF-sENT HOMK.
The trial came, when the young men
failed to agree, and it was resolved to
sever tho family. Each of them was
willing that the other should take every
thing else in the flat if they would give
Dick to him. But that was not to be
thought of fer a moment, and the young
men kept together for a month longer
than they intended in order not to be
separated from their jc-t.
Finally onf: of the young men d'-Iih-prately
carried Dick away and kept him
in hidiug for several months, and guard
ed him as can-fully as a miser watches
over his money. Then he rented the flat
in Sixteenth street, and a few- nights ago
invited his former companions to See
Dick. As he ushered his guests into the
hall they were greeted with a burst of
music. They recognized the voice of
Dick. The moment they entered the
room wdiere the little songster was he
flew a.s near them as he could and cooed
softly and ruffled his feathers gently.
There may be persons iu the world
who would scout the suggestion of a
bird remembering faces lor so long a
time, but there is not the slightest doubt
that Dick remembered the young men
and that he was welcoming them with
all his heart. During all the time they
were in the flat Dick sang all the old
tunes. He stopped only when one of
them spoke to him, and then he would
be silent and cock his little head on one
side and peep intelligently.
The young men readily accepted an
invitation to remain all night, and the
aext morning before they were out of
bed they heard the magic music of the
little songster. At breakfast he hopped
on the table and flopped in all their
glasses of water in order to let them see
that.all were dear to him. Before the
three visitors left the man who had stolen
Dick from them made each one promise
that he would not attempt to steal the
bird. New York Sun.

Mousmeos, rickshaws and tea houses
are the three institutions one associate

Tea houses are simply inns or restau

(often the only one) is tea. In the cities
they are the favorite evening resorts, for
there you ran hire the gaudy Geisha

Among tie- in v i.T.i r i s f hat command
th niselvs to public noiieo d uring the
last fifty years are those- rel.rting to cof
fins, graves and burials. One of these is
intended to f nriii-i- the tenant of a grave
who has been buried prematurely with a
means of r.-capo or arousing tho neigh
borhood. This invention is a simple af
fair, being merely an open tube provided
with a rope ladder and a bell and eord.
Should the occupant of the coffin awake
from the trance ho could climb the lad
der and make his way back to the world,
or pull the bell and alarm the township.
For those whose only fear is that they
may not be allowed to rest undisturbed
a considerate inventor has provided a
"torpedo grave," which, if disturbed, ex
plodes at, once and scatters the vandal
to the winds. Chicago Times.
.V Tot.Tii Solomon.
A famous Chicago lawyer once had a
singular case to settle. A physician came
to him in gn at distress. Two sisters,
living iu the same house, had babies of
equal age, w ho so resembled each other
that their own mothers were unable to
distinguish them when they were to
gether. Now it happened that by tho
carelessness of the iiur.-.e.s the children
had become mixed, and how were the
mothers to make sure that they received
b.ack their own infants? "But, perhaps."
said the lawyer, "the children weren't
changed at all." "Oh, but there's no
doubt they were changed," said the phy
sician. "Are you sure of it?" "Per
fectly." "Well, if that's the case why
don't you change them back again? I
don't see any difficulty in the case. -Boston

Why Women Shoul.l Help Govern.
The eternal and ineradicable distinc
tion of sex is one r-rinciial reason w-hy
women in a representative government
should be directly represented. If law
yers alone cannot safely be trusted to
make laws for mechanics, if merchants
alone cannot legislate for farmers, if
every well defined class in society is en
titled to its own authoritative expression
through the ballot, surely women, who
are the wives and sisters and mothers of
men, should give expression to the do
mestic interests from the feminine joint
of view. If a blacksmith cannot fairly
represent a physician, how much less can
a man represent a woman! Henry B.
