A Too Knter prising- Collector.
There. used to be a book collector in
thiB city who was the terror of all who
knew him. He was welt 90 do and a
very learned man. He wai'a great boy
er of books and ownwl ana, library, hut
nolnxly eWg library w;ia safe if it con
tained a lok he coveted. For a long
time his victims did not saect him.
He would call, upend an honr or two
among their tmoks and go away. Final
ly one bibliomaniac, who had suffered
moht severely, had his suspicions arous
ed. Even then ho dared not utter them,
fo he went to his lawyer aliout it.
The lawyer had him make out a list
of the volumes lust. They were all of
extreme rarity ami great value. Armed
with this list the lawyer called on the
Mi.si-cted man and introduced himself
as a collector from the west. He hid
heard of the gentleman as a bibliophile
of authority ami wished to consult him
about some lxMks which had ljeen of
fered him la-fore he concluded upon their
purchase or rejection.
"What were the lwnfcsr his host
He ran off the titles of several of the
"Nonsense!' said his host. "Nolxvly
can sell you theui. I own the only copies
in the country.
Next day the lawyer wrote a letter
which resulted in the restoration of the
ppoil to its rightful owner. How many
rare books lx-longing to other collectors
remain in the collection for it has
never been sold for obvious reasons no
one can say. New York Cor. Pittsburg
A Iilue Law Kahbath.
"I was born in Massachusetts," said
he, "and reared in a strict Puritan fam
ily. The Sabbath commenced on Satur
day night, when we children were re
quired to stndy the Scriptural lesson for
the next day. After an early breakfast
next morning we went at our lesson
again until church time. The morn
ing service was from 10 to 13 o'clock,
composed chiefly of a long winded ser
mon, during which we were required to
keep awake, pay strict attention and be
have ourselves. This was followed by
ouuuay scnooi, wnere we recitea our
lessons correctly or suffered severe con
sequences. "After a cold lunch at home, for noth
ing was cooked on Sunday, we attended
church again from 2 until 4 p. m. The
interval between this time and 7 o'clock
prayer meeting was occupied with re
ligious reading or reflection, no frivolous
games or diversions being permitted on
this solemn day. As a special dispensa
tion we were given not tea ror supper.
Prayer meeting was out at 9 o'clock, and
from that hour until bed time we sat
quietly at home reading such thrilling
and interesting works, especially to chil
dren, as Baxter's 'Saints Rest' and
Fox's Book of Martyr's.' 1 used to
sympathize with those martyrs, and
compare their miserable state with
mine." Washington Post.
flla Opinion of Wagner.
Abijah Stone was a Vermont fanner
who had a great fondness for horses.

eation was tinged by this belief, and he
drew many an illustration from his fav
orite animals. On one occasion this
habit of his was the cause of much con
fusion to a young man to whom Mr.
Stone was talking.
The young man was a professional
musician who had been sending part
of the summer at a neighboring farm
house, and had had the audacity to fall
in love with Mr. Stone's pretty daughter
Jenny. He was listening to the farmer's
various reasons for opiosing his suit
one summer evening, just before his re
turn to the city.
"for one thing," said Abijah Stone.

"Ah," said the pianist, blandly bnt
nmny, -i should educate your dangh

lead her graudally from simple melodies
up to the great W agner."
"Was,that piece you played t th' con
cert in Maown hall by Mr. Wagner?"
"It was." replied the pianist, with a
glow of reminiscent pride in his late per
formance. "Well, then," said Mr. Stone, with a
peculiar expression at the corners of his
mouth, "you might lead my Jenny up t'
him, young man, but I'm inclined t'
think she'd be apt f balk b'fore you got
her there!" Youth's Companion.

now Men Carry Their Hands.
"A sure indication of character is
found in the way in which a man car
ries his hands." said C. G. Clarke, of
Boston, "i ou notice men on the streets.
See the young man with swinging arms
and palms which are displayed to all
who take tb trouble to look. He is one
of that class whose heart is as open as
his hands. He is frame, unsuspicious, a
free spender and a believer in the hon
esty of his fellows. Notice the business
man more advanced in years. His hand?
are always closed so tightly that he
gives you the impression he is ever ex
pecting an attack. This is the attitude
of men bent upon a certain object. It
is an attitude which displays the quali
ties of determination and light.
"In debate you will observe some ot
our lawmakers emphasize a statement
by hammering the desk before them
with their knuckles, while others, ap
parently equally impassioned, are satis
tied with the use of the palm. You may
rest assured that if sheer determination
will succeed, the man who applies his
knuckles will win before his colleague
who uses his palm." St. Louis Globe
Democrat. Notion Atioat Sleep.
One of the rudest acts in the eyes ot
a native of the Philippine islands is to
step over a person asleep on the floor.
Sleeping is with them a very solemn
matter. They are strongly averse to
waking any one. the idea being that
during sleep the soul is absent from the
body, and may not have time to return
if slumber is suddenly broken.
If you call uon a native and are told
"He is asleep." yon may as well depart.
To get a servant to rouse you, you
must give him the strictest of orders.
Then at the time appointed he will
stand by your side and call, "Senor!
senor!" repeatedly, each time more
loudly than before, until you are half
awake; then he will return to the low
note, and again raise his voice gradually
until you are fully conscious. Exchange.

your second husband too?
Bridget (in deep mourning) Oh, no,
mum. He's all right. But I always
promised meself, whiniver I could af
ford it, I wnd put on mornin for poor
dear Tim, and it's very well off I am

Gold Which ToorUU Leave In Italy.
How does Italy, a country without
gold mines, find the gold to pay the ten
millions a year due to foreign holders of
her bonds, not to speak of the heavy bal
ance against her on her foreign trad
Mr. Dering, secretary of the British em
bassy in Home, declares that the onl
solution of the question at which it
logically possible to arrive is that this
amount of gold is annually brought into
the country by foreign travelers, who
swarm during the four seasons of the
year in one part of Italy or the other.
From calculations made by the United
States consular representatives in vari
ous parts of this country it has been
computed that for the last ten years the
average expenditure m Italy of Ameri
can citizens has been about 7,000,000,
Mr. Dering thinks it would scarcely be
an exaggeration to place the collective
expenditure of British, French, Austrian
German and other foreign travelers at
double this amount.
This, we are reminded, is irrespective
of the money spent in the country by
the 00,000 to 60,000 pilgrims who annu
ally visit the Eternal City, and of the
amount of which they are the bearers in
the shape of donations to the holy see.

IVhat He Ordered.
At dinner in St. Joseph. Mo., about
two years ago. with my friend Hile Jo-
burn, who is considerable of a wag, in
reply to the "What will you take to
drink, gemmen?' of the son of Ham that
served us, I ordered a glass of iced tea,
while Hile, who wanted beside the fluid
a little merriment to aid digestion, said
"You may bring me a glass of lacteal
The ebonized dispenser of grub, with
a confident "All right, boss," left for
the kitchen, where, the supposition is.
he expected to find some one who could
translate Hile's order to his vernacular,
but apparently he was disappointed, for
after a minute s absence he returned
with but one glass that contained
frapped tea and placing that before
me, he turned to Hile with:
"What was dat you wanted, boss?"
My companion answered, "A glass oi
mnk, you emphasized fool.
Again the waiter left, and coming
back in a short time with a triumphant
gleam on his face and a glass of milk in
his hand he joyously said, "Dar's your
ox tail fluid, boss." New York Re
Wherein Liverpool Was Desirable.
I was invited by an American friend
of mine in Liverpool to meet Hawthorne
soon after his arrival. His appearance
was very striking, his face handsome
and intellectual, and the large liquid
eyes were full of latent fire and poetical
imagination. He was not only reticent,
but almost taciturn, and when he did
speak was apt to pause and then jerk
out the rest of the sentence. Americans
have, as a rule, a very remarkable facil
ity of expression. Here was a curi
ous exception. I remember condoling
with him for having exchanged Bos
ton, the hub of creation, for uncongenial
Liverpool, when he replied, "Oh, Liver
pool is a very pleasant place" (then a
pause sufficiently long for me to look
surprised, and then suddenly the end of
the sentence), "to get away from."
No Safe Deposit Vaults Needed.
There is no trouble about living in the
polar regions except lack of food sup
ply. No danger exists that the provi
sions once placed would be disturbed.
Among the people who dwell in those
frozen regions a cache is sacred. Noth
ing short of starvation will compel a
native to interfere with one, and even
in such a cose he leaves payment behind
for what he takes. Snow shoes and ex
tra clothing are hung np in the open au
la summer and are as safe as the accou
terments which city persons "hang up"
at their uncle's during the warm season.
