"lJil you ever think how much of n.
person's iii'liviiluality is expressed in his
method of currying his money? I see
people every day get at tin ir change
and have mjvle a study of it.
"That man," said the ticket seller, as
an old gentleman who had purchased a
pasteboard good for a trip to IJoston
went out, "is a retired banker. Did you
notice that lie carried his money in a

of clean five dollar bills in their vest

fciome curry only gold. James Brown
Potter favors gold, and usually carries a
few quarter eagles in a small silver case,
into which the coins fit without rattling.
Lispenard Stewart usually has a roll of
new bills in his vest pocket.
"The man who comes in and fishes
from a deep trousers pocket a lot of one,
two and five dollar bills that have been
twisted up like a gun wadding I always
set down as a sporting gent.'
"The farmer on an excursion to 'Bos
ting counts up the price of a ticket in
quarters and halves from a tan colored
leather pouch that is tied up with a
6tring run through small slits near the
top. The seafaring man on his way to
his home on the Maine coast carries the
proceeds of his last trip in a calfskin
wallet. It has been handed down from
his father, or perhaps his grandfather,
for it is black and shiny with age. It
has a long strap passed through a num
ber of cross straps. The cross sections
seldom have more in them than tobacco
dust or a frayed tax receipt that showe
that he owns a house. But in the cen
ter of the wallet is a place where bills
may be laid out straight and covered
with a calfskin flap from either side.
""The man who carries change in his
coat pockets has been a car conductor
at some time or other. The fellow who
draws ten cent pieces from every pocket
in his clothes is a peanut man or vender
of small wares.
"The women, too, have a variety of
ways to carry their money, though their
lack of pockets limits their vagaries in
that direction. The young woman with
fluffy hair, who has the price of her
ticket rolled tightly in her palm, has a
mysterious storage place for money
somewhere. When she is not spending
it 6he puts it where no man will ever go
after it, but the place is accessible to
her slim fingers in a second." New
York Press.
Reply from the Pew.
"Joe Jones, one of Sam's numerous
brothers, has enlisted in the ministry.
His first sermon was preached in a coun
try church at Pine Log before a large
congregation of farmers, backwoodsmen
and crackers. Sam's methods were fol
lowed with considerable success, but
when Joe branched off on his own hook
he struck a snag. He caused his hearers
to wince when, slapping the Bible nearly
off the pulpit, he exclaimed:
"A man what will cuss a oath'll
steal T
There was a lively shifting among the
pews and much cautious looking around
and head shaking. Joe saw, and deter
mined to push his point.
"Brethren and sisters," ho repeated,
"1 want to say to you that a man what
will cuss a oath'll steal! What have
you got to say to that."
An aged cracker arose at the back of
the church and, fastening his glittering
gray eye on Joe. drawled through his
"All I got ter sajr is it's er gol dern lie!"
Joe was so discouraged that he rested
on his oars two weeks before making
any more bold assertions. New York
Registration In Germany.
In Germany the exigencies of compul
sory military service require that a man
should be registered from the day of his
birth to that of his death. The govern
ment must be able to lay hands upon
him at any time. A man can accom
plish no civil act without producing his
pajers of identity. He cannot set up in
business, nor buy land, nor obtain a
situation, nor marry, nor get out of anj
scrape with the judicial authorities, nor
leave the country without satisfying
the police as to who he is, where he was
born, who were his parents, etc. Lon

Throwing Men Overboard.
In ancient Scotland the barbarous cus

inconvenience. When a ship became
unmanageable it was usual to cast lots
for the purpose of discovering who was
responsible for the trouble, and the man
upon whom the lot fell was condemned.

sometimes to be thrown into the sea

"We had long before left civilization
behind us, when late one evening wo
came out of the woods into a little
mountain meadow that was known as
Crane's flats, and was the headquarters
for a band of cattle herders. Most of
them were Italians, but they gave us a
warm welcome. One of them in particu
lar attracted my attention. He was tall,
lithe and muscular, and walked with the
easy swing of a professional pedestrian.
His eyes were of bluish gray, and he
seemed to be a leader among his com
panions, all of whom were swarthy and
dark eyed.
" If you can get that fellow to show
you some 6hooting you will see some
thing wonderful in that line," whispered
one of my companions.
" 'Who is he?' I asked.
" 'Italian Joe,' was the reply.
"I had heard of Italian Joe before. At
Sonora, at Cherokee, at the Confidence
mines and in a hundred other places his
fame as a rifle shot had been dinned into
my ears.
"The next morning 1 asked him to
give us an exhibition of his skill. Shoot
ing was his weak point, and he consent
ed. Unlike the coy maiden, who can
sing, but wishes to be coaxed before she
does, he had his notes with him. Tak
ing a Colt's revolving rifle in his hands
he paced off a hundred yards and pinned
a common cap box to the trunk of a
huge oak. Coming back, he wheeled as
quick as lightning, and without sight
ing, apparently, he emptied the cham
bers. Six of the shots were in a circle
around the edge, while the seventh was
a plumb center.
"Loading again, he glanced about
him. High up in the heavens a hawk
circled warily through the blue, looking
for something to prey upon. There was
a moment of hesitation, a quick report
and down came the hawk with a bullet
in his head. Pennies, dimes and quar
ters that were tossed in the air came
down with a bullet hole through them.
He missed nothing that he drew a bead
on. He could beat all the Carvers and
the Buffalo Bills that you ever saw."
"What became of him?" asked an
eager listener.
"He shot at a man and he didn't miss
him, either. He was captured by a band
of vigilantes, and when I came out of
the mountains in the fall his skeleton,
white and ghastly, was hanging to a
tree at the entran of the big basin.

from the bones, and the sun, wind and

Golitft to Africa
Gi-it interest is exhibited in the pro

William Astor Chanler. The Tama
river, w hich he proposes to follow, is in
habited along the lower part principally
by the W;i-l'okomo, a race which sul
sists by cultivation. The b;uks of the
river being low, the country on lxth
sides is annually inundated, and the
river thus acts as a lileral fertilizer.
Mr. Chanler has no ejisy task lie fore

in reaching Mount Kenia have had
their suspicions and hostility aroused
by tho harsh and barbarous course of tho
German explorer Dr. I'cters.

with Lieutenant Ilohnel.of the Austrian

of car l'nl scientific research and ob

travel along tho Tama river, resting for
some weeks at the snowcapped moun
tain of Kenia, where they will make
astronomical observations. After ex
ploring the mountain to its summit if
fjiossible they will plunge into the almost
unknown regions of East Rudolph lake.
It was there that Baron Vecken was
murdered, and that Ileviol, Respoli and
Ferrendi failed in their elForts to accom

The region alounds in warlike tribes.
Mr. Chanler intends to enter the rcion
from the west, after leaving Lake Ru

river to the sea. He expects to be ab
sent about eighteen months. Ho will
take with him his young servant, George
Galmin, who accompanied him through

hope and will go fully equipped for his
perilous enterprise, which is expected to
have most interesting and valuable re

A Tame Duckling.
The extraordinary sight of a duckling
that has just shed its shell following a
young woman about the house with all
the affection of a pet dog is a domestic
wonder in the family of Mrs. Carr. Ever
since Easter m6rn the neighbors have
been dropping in to witness the spec
tacle, and the fame of the singular at
tachment has attracted attention among
people who are interested in natural
phenomena of every description.
The little duckling has been in the
family since Easter Sunday, when it
was brought as a gift to Mrs. Carr's
baby daughter, Serena, aged four years,
who was delighted with her new pet.
The duck at once struck up a long
friendship for the domestic, Mary Mc
Cullough, and has been the young wom
an's constant companion ever since.
Whenever Mary speaks the duck re
sponds with the piping salutation and
waddles after the young woman wher
ever she goes. The most astonishing
thing about this freak of nature is that
if any other inmate of the household
attempts to induce it to answer, the
webfooted prodigy maintains a solemn
silence, but Mary has only to utter a
word when the quacking begins and is
kept up until she has ceased speaking.
Philadelphia Times.
Mary's Claim.
A little girl is reported to have died ,
near the imaginary line in Oklahoma
which divided the recently opened res
servations from the remainder of the
territory just as the signal was given for
the grand rush for lands. The child and
her father were alone and unknown, but
the beauty of the one and the still, deep
grief of the other moved the strong men
of the frontier to acts of admirable sym
pathy. A runner on a swift horse located a
homestead, and returning placed the
father of the dead girl in possession of
it. The body of the child was trans
ported to the claim and buried upon it.
Afterward it was discovered the re
maining one of the unfortunate couple
was absolutely penniless, and a purse of
money was given him with the hope that
the claim will prove a haven of rest to
him and that the homestead shall al
ways be known as "Mary's claim."

Death from Ingrowing Toe Nail.
Some time ago there was published
the story of the death of a Long Island
physician from blood poisoning result
ing from an ingrowing toe nail. A well
known surgeon chiropodist said the
other day to the reporter: "The death of
that Long Island doctor is not the first I ,
have heard of from the same cause.
"The cause of the disease is comrion
and painful and usually directly trace
able to narrow toed shoes. It causes
pain as severe as a toothache and not
infrequently, when neglected, results in
blood poisoning. I know of an opera
tion for ingrowing toe nail in an English
hospital where the patient suffered so
much pain that they gave him a mixture
of ether and chloroform. The operation
was successful, but when it was finished
the physicians found that their patient
had died from the chloroform." New

To Preserve an Alpine Flower.
The diet of the Tyrol last week passed
a bill imposing heavy fines upon persons
found selling any sample of the beauti
ful but rare Alpine flower called edel
weiss, which has been pulled no bv the
roots on the mountains. A similar act !
was passed seven years ago by the diet
of Salzburg, with a view to the preserva
tion of the edelweiss plant, which is
threatened with extinction in the Aus
trian Alps. In the Salzburg district the
success of this legislation is, unfortu
nately, not encouraging.
