Queer Kartli':uuU Effect.
An old sheep herder who dwells in a
lecluded Bit in the Sutter county buttea
made his annual visit to this city
Wednesday, and from him we learn of
gouie phenomenal and interesting cir
cumstances as a result of the earthquake
of Tuesday morning.
The lonely camp of the old bhepherd
Is far up in tliebuttes.and is surrounded
with cliffs densely covered with massive
rocks and bowlders, which have- with
stood the storms of ages and furnished
mills for the almrigincs to grind their
acorns and manzanita berries into Hour
from the remotest antiquity.
The ld herder had just emerged from
bis cabin on this memorable morn, and
was gathering kindling with which to
prepare his morning meal lef ore turning
hia Hock onto the range tor their uay d
forage, and the wonderful sight ho wit
nessed will never le forgotten. When
the trembling legan numerous sparks of
a bright blue color Ix-gan issuing from
tho rocks, caused by the friction as they
were tossed to and fro by the surging
earth. As the tremors increased the
number of sparks did likewise, until at
one time the hillsides apieared as one
sheet of fire with millions of sparks dart
ing here and there as if dancing for joy.
As the trembling subsided tho sparks
gradually disappeared, and in a moment
all was total darkness.
Shortly after the sun had started 011
its journey in the eastern horizon the
attention of the old shepherd was at
tracted by the great branches of trees
which had fallen to tho ground, and
those which remained intact seemed to
horrify the wild birds, as they would
attempt to alight, and then, with a
frightened scream, would pass rapidly
on, only to repeat the caper at the next
tree. An investigation proved that mil
lions of lizards and snakes had taken
refuge in the trees during their fright
and had become so numerous on the
projecting branches that they were
forced to succumb to the immense
weight and fell to the ground. This is

II ow Men Carry Their Hands.
A sure indication of cnaracter is
found in tho 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 palm3 which are displayed to all
who take th trouble to look. He is one
of that class whose heart is as open as
his hands. lie is frank, unsuspicious, a
free -spender and a believer in the hon
esty of his fellows. Notice the business
man more advanced in years. His hands
are always closed so tightly that he
gives you the impression he is ever ex
pecting an attacir. This is the attitude
of men bi nt upon a certain object. It
is an attitude which displaj-s the quali
ties of determination and fight.
"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
fied with the use of the palm. You may
rest assured that if 6heer determination
will succeed, the man who applies hia
knuckles will win before his colleague
who uses his palm." St. Louis Globe
Democrat. 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 sleep the soul is absent from the
bodv. 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 vou are fullv conscious. Ex

A Useful Collector of Coals.
Perhaps the following anecdote may
be useful to readers whose houses and
gardens abut on railways. An eminent
"inenagerist" lives in a suburb where
forty trains pass his garden every hour.
The weather was cold, coals were ex
pensive, for the recent strike was just
then at its height. Tne "menagenst,"
however, was a man of resource; he
conceived a plan for utilizing the forty
trains an hour.
From his menagerie in town he
brought a large Barbary ape, which un
fortunate animal was chained to the top
of a pole at the end of the garden. The
result was as pleasant as owning a col
lierv. without any wages to pay or fear
of floods and explosions. Every stoker
and occasionally a driver on every
train that passed had a shot with
lump of coal at the Barbary ape. The
B. A. was never hit, but the garden was
littered with coal, which the "menager
ist" triumphantly conveyed to his cel
lars. London Tit-Bits.
A Well Traveled tetter.
An old member of a well known Bres-
lau institution sent on the 13th of May.
1S91, a post card from Cassel, addressed
to "Dr. Emm Pacha, m uerman Jast
Africa." The card contained a poetical
allusion to the great traveler, and was
siimed by a number of other members
of the institute. It arrived at Zanzibar
on the 14th of June, 1891, and at Baga-
moyo on the 10th of that month. The
post card was then sent back to uar-es-Salaam,
where it arrived on the 12th of
March of this year, and received the fol
lowing official comment: "Aus dem In
nern zuruck. Emin nicht erreichbar."
(Returned from the interior. Emin not
attainable.) On the oth ot Jiay tnis
