WHERE THEY KEEP COOL.
fi. tho Cellar of a Cincinnati Itrrncry A
Tito placo that is nearest tho north pole in
summer time is the beer collar of a brewery.
There tho frost melts from tho walls and tho
icicles hang in graceful crystals from the be
ginning of one year to tho beginning of tho
next. The largest cellars in Cincinnati are
under a brewery up on FAm street. It was
at tho entrance to the immense and hiby
rinthiaii caves that a hot, perspiring and
worn out reporter found himself tho other

Ingersolt's Method of Preparation.
Col. Ingei'soll's method of jtrcparing for a
public sjieech is simple and effective, idany j
people in the vast audiences who have lis.- !
tened to his flowing eloipienee have wondered j
if bis effects wero entirely produced urcn ;
the spur of the moment, or if his orations,
were carefully worked up beforehand, an;
hen committed tQ memory. Neither of
these theories is entirely correct. Col. Itiger
eoll has in bis employ a thoroughly efficient
stenographer named Baker, and when his
material for a speech or an extended letter is
all in band he dictates tho entire thing from
beginning to end. Tho stenographer subs.

He thou prepaies u series of headings of the
y'arious points ho desires to cover, and when
ho goes into court or mounts tho robtrum he
is armed with these headings. He had no
need to commit mere words and figures of
speech to memory. He has a singular wealth
4f language in which to clotku his r.vguaieut,
whatever it may Do, and hi only difficulty is
to recall binself io the' main track after

Another Legend of the Opal.
By tho way, said a jeweler to a reporter,
did 3'0t! ever hear tho legeud rs to hw opals
peqan.e ' .unluckyi'V ' It runs 'something like
ibis: "A wealthy man onco owned a large
opal which had been in tho family for many
generations, and which bad brought good
luck to all its owners. The tradition rtaehed
to the stone was that it was to be given to
the best beloved son, failing in which the
charm would be lost. This man bad throe
sons whom he loved dovly, and, being unable
to determine .vhictv waathe best beloved, hud
three rings made, each a counterpart of the
other, ono of which contained tho heirloom,
and tho others two imitations of it. Calling
bis three sons into tho room separately, he
presented each of them with a ring, telling
each in turn that he was tho best beloved,
and enjoining him to say nothine to his
brothers. As a punis-tnient for this deceit
ttc fait ic-s removed the charcn, and ill luck
and disaster are said to have followed the
possessors of opals ever since. I think, though,
that something must have occurred sinca to
put tha t edriea in good humor again with the
stone, for I haven't heard cf opals bringing
anybody bad luck of late I Have you?"

an inch thick rimmed cup, turns the stale

Tho lea and coffee are brought in very
thick, heavy cups. Occasionally these cups
are notched, as if some one had tried to. bite
out a piece. Other cups Lave several notches;
and suggest the edge of a saw. Ordinarily
ihey do not have more than two notches.
The window is filled with pieces of pie
mince, puiyipkin, apple and cratU'ierry. By
W-h piece uf pie is a bit of cheese. The pie
is now ready for o(H;rntion. Some of theso
pieces of pie have been waiting for days in

sun imparts a flavor of its own to pie crvsr-t.
It is a sun baked flavor. Tho aino sun
