so I Mot h1 it for three, hours, tiud then J

that feller from South Dakota he caught

worked down inside his collar; into liif

that feller from South Dakota locked

"Well that's tho trouble," rejoined th
dirty traveler. "While I was fixin tin

At a certain station large quantities ol
plums nnd apples were being reported
as missing almost daily in the large
hampers and baskets that were sent to
London. Circumstances pointed to the
probability of the pilfering taking place
at the sending station. The agent hit
upon a novel plan for detecting the thief,
lie had a . lad porter placed in one ol
these hampers returning empty, which
was large enough to hold him, covered
the top with canvas and labeled it
"Plurus PeriHhable," with the address
in full.
Toward midnight the lad got cramped
and felt anxious to get ont, but he stuck
manfully to his post. By and by one ol
the night shunters came into the shed to
examine the wagons labeled for the next
train. lie groped abont the packages,
and cat a hole in the canvas of the ham
per where the lad was concealed and
felt for the plums.
lie was terrified, however, to find his
hand firmly gripped, and almost fainted
with fright when the porter revealed
himself and recognized him, with a large
basket full of fruit by his side. The
shunter was in a couple of days dis
missed and the porter received promo
tion. London Tit-Bits.
Fine yuentlon.
The Germans are a very philosophical
and somewhat argumentative race. Two
workmen in the great Kropp cannon
manufactory were overheard discussing
an important question.
"In yonr opinion, Johann," said one,
"which is tho more important part of a
cannon the hole or the 6teel?"
"The hole of course, Il'iricb,,' said
the other. "Because what nse in the
world wonld a cannon be without any
hole in it?"
"Yon are wrong, Johann. It's the steel
that's moro important; for how many
men could you kill with a hole with
nothing around it?" Youth'sCompauioo.

Investigations into tho origin of the
baton, or stick for beating time, which
is used nowadays by tho conductor of
every large orchestra, have brought out
the interesting fact that the first conduc
tor's baton was a formidable staff, about
six feet long, which tho old time French
musician, Lully by name, who invented
it, may have used as much to intimidate
the members of his orchestra as to mark
the time. In tho very oldest orchestras,
as in Chinese orchestras of the present
day, there was uo conductor in the
modern sens-?. Every performer played
as well as ho could, and tho man who
played upon tho loudest instrument the
ttlo drum, for instance marked tLe
time for the rest.
When music became more systematic
and refined, the chi"f command of tlu
orchestra was given to tho member who
was regarded as the most accomplished
and skillful. lie assigned the other mem
bers their parts, drilled them at re
hearsals and supervised the final per
To prod uoo a good effect it w is n s
savy ol course that tnu musicians
should play iu time, and th t hief of the
orchestra, who himself played ono in
stiuineiit, was accustomed to mark the
beat by stamping on the floor wi'h one
foot. For this reason tho conductor ol
an orchestra was at that period called
tho pedaiius.
Afterward it became customary for
him to give tho time by clapping the
fingers of his right hand against thu hoi
low of his left. The In-liter of time aflet
tills fashion was called the maiiiidiictor.
Meantime experiments were made in
marking the time by striking togethei
shells and bones. Tho bones were soon
given up as instruments to be used by
the conductor of an orchestra; but they
survived as au independent instrument.
Doys and negro minstrels "play ou the
bones" with great gusto to this day.
In thu early part of tho Seventeenth
century tho musician already alluded to,
Lully by name, arose. Ho found all
those instruments of leadership ineffec
tive, and in order to reduce bis perform
ers to complete subjection, ho procured
a stout staff six foot long, with which lie
pounded vigorously on the Hour to mailt
tho time.
Ono day, becoming particularly impa
tient, and pounding with especial vigor,
Lully struck his foot instead of the flooi
with his baton. The wound gangrened,
and Lully died from its effects in 1087.
Tlio baton continued in use through
out tho Seventeenth and Eighteenth
centuries, but though it gradually tie
creased in size, there is no evidence that
conductors marked the time in any othot
way than by pounding upon their music
stands or somo other hard object.
All this poundiug must have had an
unpleasant effect upon the music, and
critics and musicians began to ridicule
the practice. Iu courso of time, there
fore, wo find musical conductors no
longer thumping upon the floor or their
music stands, but beating the time en
tirely in the air. It seems to have taken
players a very long timo to learn that
they could get the time as easily by
means of tho eye as by means of the oar.

Not Wholly Complimentary.
A certain Mrs. Malaprop, who lives in
a largo eastern city, is noted for hot
skill in unconsciously embarrassing oth
er people, while she herself remains per
fectly at ease. Not long ago she was in
troduced to two sisters, young ladies
who had long been known to her by
name, though sho had never met them.
"Now, my dears," sho said, addressing
them collectively, with her usual bland
smile, and regarding them earnestly
through her glasses, "I have often heard
of tho bright and tho handsome Miss
Ratcliffo. Now I am so glad to meet you
both, nnd I want you to tell mo at once
which of you is the bright and which the
handsome ono."
On another occasion sho was dining
with her nephew and his young wife,
who had just set up housekeeping. The
dinner did not go off quite so smoothly
as the young couple had hoped, ami the
cooking was by no means perfect. The
hostess unwisely began to murmur apol
ogies and her husband joined in, halt
laughing, with references to his wife's
youth and inexperience.
"Don't say another word, my deal
children," interrupted their kind hearted
guest. "I can assure yon I've eaten a
great deal worse dinners than this in the
course of my life; a great deal worse.
Ye8,"she added meditatively, "I'vo eaten
some pretty bad dinners, you may be
surel" Youth's Companion.
Tha FlaTor of Coffe.
Real coffee is a very delicate sub
stance and will readily not only lose its
own flavor, but also take up the flavor
of other substances. Thus it is quite
necessary in shipping coffee to make
sure that no other odorous substance is
placed near to destroy the flavor of the
coffee. The aroma is volatile. Let a
quantity of pure ground coffee be ex
posed to the air for a considerable time
and the best of tha coffee will go out
into the atmosphere. The careful house
wife who wishes to make good, pure
coffee of fragrant aroma buys it in the
green bean, roasts it herself, keeps it
tightly canned after roasting and grinds
it the morning it is used. Coffee so made
is a totally different article of consump
tion from the great bulk of ground cof
fee that is sold in the stores. .
Some time ago an official analysis of
some ground coffee exposed for sale dis
closed the fact that there was absolutely
no coffee in it. New York Sun.
