There uned to be' a' book collector la
this city wix won the terror of all who
knew him. lie was wll to do and a
very learned man. lie wan a great buy
er of books and owned a fine library, but
nobody else's library wiw safe if it con
tained a book he coveted. For a long
time his victim did not snect him.
Fie would cnll, np nd an hour or two
among their books and go away. Final
ly ono bibliomaniac, who had suffered
most (severely, had his n-X'icions amus
ed. Even then he dared not utter them,
go ho went to hi lawyer alout it.
The lawyer had him make out a list
of the volumes IokL They were all of
.-rtrfmo raritv and irreat value. Arined
this lUt t he liiwvcr called on ine
su.iected man and introluced hiiustlf
a.s a collector from the west. He had
heard of the gentleman as a bibliophile
of authority and wished to consult him
about some books which had been of
fered him before he concluded upon their
purchase or rejection.
'What were the books? his host
I! mil off the titles of several of the
! stolen volumes.
"Nonsense!" said his host. "Nobody
j can sell you them. I own the only copies
in the country."
Next day the lawyer wrote a letter
which resulted in the restoration of the
spoil to its rightful owner. Ilow many
rare books belonging to other collectors
remain in the collection for it has

A Illue Lrnr Sabbath.
F 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 study the Scriptural lesson for
the next day. After au early breakfast
next morning we went at our lesson
again until church time. The morn
ing service was from 10 to 12 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
Sunday school, where we recited our
lessons correctly or suffered Bevere con
sequences. ' After a cold luncn at nome, ior notn-
ing was cooked on Sunday, we attended
church again from 3 until 4 p. m. ine
interval between this time and 7 o clocK
prayer meeting was occupied with re
ligious reading or renection, no invoious
games or diversions being permitted on
this solemn day. As a special dispensa
tion we were given hot tea for 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 cnu
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.
Hoit Hen 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. "You notice men on the streets.
See the young man with swinging arms
and palms which are displayed to ail
who take th trouble to look. Fie is one
of that class whose heart is as open as
his hands. He is frans, unsuspicious, a
free spender and a believer in the hon
esty of his fellows. Notice the business
man more advanced in years. Mis nanus
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 fight.
"In debate jTou will observe some ot
our lawmaKers empnasize a statement
i . j j .
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 hi:
knuckles will win before bis colleague
who uses his palm." St. Liouis Globe-
Notions About 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 6leep the soul is absent from the
body, and may not have time to return
if slumber is suddenly broken.
If you call upon a native and are told
'He is asleep, you 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. Ex

She gave him another shake.

"UirhV" he ventured acain. this time

something was wrong. !

"Sh sh!" she whispered, "there's

"Aw," ho growled, "we ought to be
thankful they are not up stairs. Go to

"Hiram, I tell you, ' she insisted, with
another shake, "there's burglars down
stairs. I heard them. You go down
and see what they want."
"Maria," ho protested, "I'll do noth

they want they can ask for it. That's

business hours anyway. You must
think we run an all night place. Go to

Mrs. Iliginbotham gave a sudden
clutch at his arm.
"There," she nearly screamed, "F hear

discovered her grief.

voice, and she began to get out of bed.

"Down stairs,' she answered, neroicai-
ly. "As between you upstairs and the
burglars down stairs, I prefer the bur
glars," and down stairs she went, and the
black cat m the preserve closet upset
four jars of her finest quinces in its mad
effort to escape.
She screamed, but Hiram Higinbotham
made no sign; he knew he had forgotten
to put the cat in the cellar when he shut

Home of the Sea Serpent.
The Question of the "great sea "ser
pent" has of late come before us with an
episcopal sanction; bat whatever may
bo the explanation ot tne various appear
ances which have given a certam cur
rency to a belief in the existence of an
unknown marine monster of some kind.
that small sea serpents exist is most cer
tain. They are all marine, and with the
exception of one or two species never quit
the water. As might be expected under
such circumstances they bring forth
their young alive, and these can swim as
soon as they are born.
Mr. Boulenger tells us that their home
is essentially me cuasts ui mc mimi
ocean and the tropical parts of the west
ern Pacific, from the Persian gulf to
New Guinea and N orth Australia. One
species, however, ranges from west and
south Africa to the western coast of
tropical America and extends northward

Ancient SacriGces to the Sea.
The navigators of antiquity, to whose
imaginative ignorance the ocean seemed
peopled and beset with chimeras dire
and supernatural agencies of all sorts,
used often to sacrifice human lives to
the mysterious vrater gods. It is regard
ed by tradition that Idomeneus, long ot
Crete, vowed to sacrifice to Neptune the
first living thing he met after escaping
from a storm, and this happening to be
his son, he fulfilled his vow religiously.
Medea nearly became a sacrifice during
the return voyage of the Argonauts.

big and when they by some accident
do care for little men it's ten to one the
brains are big. To every woman, and
woman is at heart an uncivilized crea
ture, there is a certain pleasure in tli3
knowledge that a man can, if lie wants
to, kill you with a blow. The woman
who has not had this sensation is the
one who has cultivated the original

iTf.rfnl is to a woman more beautiful
es a man
than Adonis, and if she admire
who mentally is strong, a
times more does she care for
who can if he will govern by pny.,ie.ii
strength and become what Swinburne
calls "King of Iin." You can't deny
this, nor explain it, but it's true.
The chnrchgoing young woman who
met Mr. Muldoon was inquisitive, and
she made up her mind that she was go
ing to get some points on bigness und
beauty from him; 60 with the audacity
of the fox terrier, the dog of the day.
Mr. Muldoon, what constitutes a per
fectly made man?"
"One whose neck, biceps and calves
all measure the same."
It was a bit iiuiertinent, but that is
the prerogative of a woman and bo she
asked, "Do yours?"
And he quietly answered, "Yes."
Then she inquired, "What is the
reason that as one walks in New York
one notices that the women are larger,
look more healthy, walk better, and
from a physical standpoint are better
specimens than the men?"
"Well," said he, "the trouble begins
with the care of the boy when he is a
little chap; everything here is sacrificed
to the cultivation of the intellect, and
the small boy's physical condition isn't
paid much attention to. You see, the
sons of rich men who are weak, miser
able specimens, killing themselves with
cierarettes. smaller and less 6trong than
their sisters and having no strength
physically. A good many of them are
cowards. Train a boy morally and
physically first, and his brain will re
spond when you call on it. Train the
brain at the expense of the body and
you have just such specimens of man
hood as you laugh at."
"Mr. Muldoon, when you get a man
down and are looking him straight iu
the eyes and know that you have him
almost in your power, what are you
"F am thinking only of one thing, and j
that is where F can best get a hold of (
him and how F can best keep him where
F want him to be."
Then he was asked, "How long have
you been an athlete?"
"Since I was fifteen years old, and 1
am now forty-one. F weigh 215 pounds
in my clothes, 203 in fighting trim, or. m
the say in the south, in the buff. Aftei
F was thirty-five years old F allowed my
self to gain ten pounds, because aftei
that age I think a man needs a little
more flesh. F have never used tobaccc
and F don't drink.
"What do I think of women? To be
quite honest, 1 am a little afraid of them,
thev are not so trustworthy as horses oi
dogs? What kind of a woman do I like; i
F like a womanly woman, a woman whe !
is gentle and affectionate and who isn't
loud. 1 lite a woman whose lace i

and powder. I like woman who has a
little bit of consideration for a man, an-i
who, while he is willing to give her de
votion and love, is ready to return ii
with affection and kindly thoughts.
"But do you want me to tell you what

The inquisitive one said she did sne
was a seeker for knowledge.
"It is the vile air that is in the car,
boats, half the houses and hotels, and iu
all the places of amusement. You get
in a parlor car, and there is one person in
that car an invalid, or a woman,
insists on having all the ventilators
"closed, and you have got to sit, possiblj
sleep, in that foul air, breaming in tne
diseases that everybody else has. If the3
would spend less money on making a
car handsome and more on making it
healthful, there would not bo half as
much wickedness as thire is, for when
men and women are thoroughly well
there is not much chance of their going
"But about women?"
"I think there are 100 good women
to one good man, and where a woman
makes a mistake it usually is the fault
of a man. It is perfect nonsense, how

have heard of lately. They ought to bo
caught by the nape of their necks and i
tossed out of a window and left to get I
along as best they can." j
"Who is your favorite actor."
"What are your favorite flowers?"
"What is your favorite color?"
And then, with a characteristic jump
from flowers and colors, the inquisit'.ve
one asked, ''At a prize fight do they
spill much blood?"
"No," said Muldoon; "the amount of
blood spilled is usually very much ex
aggerated. When Sullivan fought Kil
rain, on July 8, 1889, the fight lasted two
hours and eighteen minutes, and there
wasn't enough blood shed to entirely
