House Furnishing Review.
ln 1' sit ntly AflVrt ion ate.
An English traveler in Persia had ar
rived at Abadeh, where a European tele
graph official, Mr. G , welcomed him
hospitably and invited him to remain
for the night. He f aj"s:
An hour later 1 was comfortably set
tled v.pou the sofa when my rest was
suddenly disturbed by a loud bang at
the sitting room door, which, Hying
open, admitted two enormous animals,
which I at first took for dogs.
Both of them made at once for my
sofa, and while the larger one curled
comfortably around my feet and com
posed itself to sleep, tho smaller one.
evidently of a more affectionate disposi
tion, seated itself on the floor and com
menced licking my face and hands, an
operation which, had I dared, I should
strongly have resented.
But the white, gleaming teeth and
cruel looking green eyes inspired me
with respect, to rise no stronger term;
for I had by this timo discovered that
these domestic pets were panthers! To
my great relief, ilr. Cx entered at
this juncture.
"Making friends with tho panthers, I
see," he remarked pleasantly. "They
are nice, companionable beasts."
That maj have been true at the time.
The fact remains, however, that three
months afterward the "affectionate
one" half devoured a native child! The
neighborhood of Abadeh, Mr. G in
formed me, swarms with these animals.
Pets oT English Regiments.
It may not be generally known that
there is a special reason why the Royal
Welsh Fusiliers should have a goat.
They area very ancient corps, and at an
early period of their existence it was the
custom to have a goat with a shield and
garland on its horns to march at the
head of the drums. Every 1st of March
being the anniversary of their tutelary
saint. David, the officers used to give an
entertainment, and after the cloth was
taken away a bumper was filled around
to the Prince of Wales, and the goat,
richly caparisoned for tho occasion, was
led thrice around the table in procession
by the drum major.
In 184 the then regimental goat of
the Welsh Fusiliers died and her maj
esty presented the regiment with two of
the finest goats from a flock the gift of
the shah of Persia in Windsor park,
and since that date the queen has con
tinned to supply the Welsh Fusiliers
with goats as occasion required. The
pet of the Second battalion Derbjshire
regiment used to be a ram; that of tho
Eighth King's Royal Irish light dra
goons, now hussars, a horse; the Royal
Warwickshire had an antelope, the Iios
shire Buffs a deer and the Fifteenth
lancers a tiger. Pall Mall Gazette.
True to Ilis Word.
There is an unfortunate relic of sena
torial greatness who hangs around the
Capitol during the winters. On one oc
casion he applied to Senator Jones for
relief. "Say, Jones," said he, lend me
fifty dollars, won't you? I've got to go
home and I haven't the money. I can't
pay jou till I come back in six months?"
"No," said Jones promptly, "I won't
let you have fifty dollars for six months."
The old man's jaw fell. "But I'll tell
yon what I will do. I'll let j-on have 100
for twelve months if you'll stay away
that long." The wreck was tickled, and,
strange to relate, turned up exactl
twelve months afterward to a day and
paid back the hundred. Kate Field's
Why English Girls Are Often Early Kisers.
It was once a common article of belief
in England that when a maiden ran into
the fields early in the morning to hear
the first note of the cuckoo, and when
she heard it took off her left shoe and
looked into it, she would there find r.
man's hair of the same color as thai, of
her future husband. London Queen.

The average American fngineer and
his firer-Jin would think themselves very
ill u.-ed if an order were issued for tho
abolishment of tho cabs that friendly
retreat from inclement weather that in
now considered an absolute necessity on
all engines. And yet in civilized Eng
land, on a majority of tho railroads, tho
engines in use ,ro built minus tho cab,
thus forcing tho ojierators to work with
out Mielter iu all kinds of weather. It
sounds inhuman, ami yet in refutation
the railroad companies ask whether the
soldier should carry an umbrella when
it rains or the sailor le allowed to work
under an awning? The claim is that tho
railroad employees become inured to se
vere weather and tho absence of cover
ing keeps them alert, so that tho possi
unity oi danger trom inattention to
duty is reduced to a minimum. Subtle
argument, erhaps, but hardly tenable,
If this practice was adopted on sonio of
our western roads where tho temperature
ranges from 20 to 50 dogs, below zero,
how many engineers would live to carry
their trains from one station to tho next?
Tho unpardonable sin in an engineer
is to let the water get out of tho boiler
of tho engine in his charge. No matter
whut excuse he may offer, if ho lives to
mako hi report in turn, his dismissal
will lo iwromptory, for by this action
he has proved himself incompetent and
unworthy of future responsibilities. It
is lxitter for an engineer that ho had
never been born when he reaches this
stage of self torture. Fortunately such
cases are rare. The man on all well
conducted railroads must have shown
himself to bo trusty and true before ho
is given charge of an engine, and the
rigid inspection to which ho is sub
jected before an engagement is a guar
antee of future conduct.
One weakness nearly every engineer
has, and that is a penchant for "doctor
ing" tho steam whistle on his jet engine.
Every boy in a country town familiar
izes himself at an early ago with the
different "toots" that by day and night
wail through tho unhappy village. He
caii detect No. 4's whistle when tho train
is live miles distant, and in like manner
tho approach of Nos. 1 and 2 are herald
ed to his keen ear. Of course all whis
tles are alike when they leave the shops,
rbut the engineer fills in tho sounding
bell with a piece of turned wood that
fits snug and changes the tone to a short,
sharp scream or an angry, impatient
howl, as his fancy may dictate.
Tho close observer may lie snugly in
his bed and yet bo able to detect the
passing of either a freight or passenger
train. The engine on the former an
nounces its approach by emitting a
sharp, shrill scream that is soul piercing
enough to waken the dead, while the
passenger engine, with dae respect to
tho living freight it carries, sounds a
long, deep warning note that does not
bring the occupant of a berth to his feet
"all standing," ready to curse the com
pany in general terms and the engineer
in particular ones for such an act of
folly and incousiderateness. On tfcw
freight train a sharp, shrill scream is es
sential, for it notifies the brakemen, who
aro perhaps forty cars in the rear of the
engine and serrated from the occupants
of tho cab by many ways of ear piercing
sound, just what work is required at
their hands.
This whistle is to them what tho cry
of the call boy on the Thames steamboat
used to be to the engineer down below
before the advent of electric bells.
"Ease her!" the captain would remark
in his ordinary tone of conversation to
the small boy that followed him like a
shadow, and "Ease her!" the youngster
would scream in his sharp, shrill stac
cato down tho coinpanionway. "Stop
er!" "Turn 'er astern!" "Go ahead!"
would perhaps follow in rapid succes
sion, and iu this decidedly crude fashion
the London steamboat captains did their
steering by proxy only a dozen years
ago. One wonders what has become of
those call boys. Perhaps they spend
their hours in spinning yams to tho
younger cockneys of the past glories of
steamboating in much the same manner
that our dethroned stage drivers of the
west now regale the tenderfoot with
glimpses of bygone acts of heroism and
feats of impossible horsemanship. This
is somewjiat of a digression from the
topic under discussion, but perhaps the
reader will excuse its insertion. One
thought naturally suggested the other.
As a class engineers are usually good
natured, kind hearted, though a bit
rough; deep thinkers, due to their fixed
habits of attention and long hours of
enforced silence, and of good morals.
An engineer who drinks cannot hope to
hold his position long, for no master me
chanic will tolerate confirmed tippling
in a subordinate whose duties are so re
sponsible as those of an engineer. He
must be abstinent, prompt at his post of
duty, and ever vigilant if he hopes to
maintain his position. His hands may
be black and his face grimy, but that
his heart is all right was evidenced not
long ago in a railroad terminus on
the Pacific coast when the engine,
puffing and laboring from its dizzy
ride over mountain passes and along
dangerous precipices, was approached
by a golden haired misa of six, who
patted one of the huge driving wheels
caressingly and lisping, "You dear, big
black thing, how I love you for bring
ing my sweet mamma and papa home to
me from across those horrid mountains,
and you too," she exclaimed, lifting her
pretty face to the black bearded engin
eer, who had been watching her from
his cab. lhe tear that sprang instantly
to his eye was not au evidence of weak
ness, but of a warm, unpastnonate heart.

ance Monday alter the lumk cfiiials had
tushed clucks of the Indians to tho
amount of f00,00. Every hitching
jNrt was surrounded by pomex. Thost
already possessing vehicles drove di
rectly to tho livery stables. Mivh curi
osity ttAS felt as to how tho Indians
would niend their gold. Their first pur
chases were made at tho fruit and con
fectionery stores. One squaw quietly
bought a generous allowance of candy,
fruits, nuts, crackers and fifty cents'
worth of chewing gum. Every Indian,
largo and small, was soon seen eating or
carrying oranges. Iu a short time ninny
of the men had bought and donned new
suits of clothes. They exhibited a
marked preference in theso selectionn
for navy blue. Tho squaws meanwhile
were fast reducing tho merchants' stocks
of blankets, calicoes, etc.
By noon the agricultural implement
houses had sold every stylo of vehicle in
their ossession, ami one merchant had
orders enough for a carload of spring
wagons or "hacks." Harness men soon
found their stocks nearly cleaned out
by tho Indians. Several of them paid
hih prices for horses in the morning,
ant. during the afternoon many farmers
brought hores to town, which they dis
posed of at terms far lcyond their ex
pectations. At noon tho Indians eager
ly sought tho hotels for dinner. The
squaws seemed to retain complete con
trol of the purses. Tho black eyed
maiden purchased tho highest priced
hat in a millinery store.
An old squaw selected a new cart,
and paid $160 for a horse. Sho then pur
chased a new harness and stored away
numerous packages under the seat, after
which she tied the ixxir, little, fagged
caynse pony (on which sho had come to
town) behind, spread a new blanket over
her lap and turned her high checked
spirited horse toward the mission. By
4 o'clock a long lino of new buggies,
wagons and carts well laden with every
conceivable article of merchandise
wound its way over the mountain to the
mission. Tho Indians were quiet, or
derly and dignifiedly polite. Their con
fidence in the townspeople was evident,
as when they emerged from the bank
with their largo Backs of money they
sat on the street corners to count it.

The "Finger" Prayer Rook.
Thirty-five or fort' j-earsago someone
issued the famous "Thumb Bible," so
called because it was scarcely larger
than the first joint of the thumb; now
Mr. Frowde, of Oxford, England, is out
with a marvelous little book, which has
been dubbed the "Finger Prayer Book."
This tiny volume has 700 pages and is
bound in morocco and velvet with brass
clasps. It weighs less than three
quarters of an ounce, is only 1 inch in
breadth, 3i inches in length and J
of an inch in thickness. It is difficult
for one to believe that a book of 70C
pages could be made thin enough to con
veniently go into a common pocket
purse, but this is what Mr. Frowde has
achieved in his "Finger Prayer Book."
It is a marvel in paper making and ono
of which the author, the paper maker
ind the printer are justly proud. A
copy of it bound in silver with gold
clasps will be exhibited at the World'a J

Poisoned Snuff.
An old New Yorker, who takes snuff
regularly, wrote to Sanitary Superin
tendent Edson a few days ago to com
plain that some snuff which he had been
using had caused inflammatory symp
toms which suggested poison. Dr. Ed
son examined the sample of snuff which
was sent with the complaint and discov
ered that chromate of lead, known in
tho trade as chrome yellow, had been
mixed with the snuff to brighten it. He
next ascertained where the snuff was
manufactured in the city, and called on
tho manufacturer for an explanation.
Subsequently the manufacturer de
clared that he had tised the poisonous
color in the snuff by mistake, supposing
that he was using a harmless means of
improving the appearance of the article.
He promised to stop using chrome yel
low, and also consented to destroy some
of his stock which had been colored with
it. New York Letter.
A Prehistoric Ilurial Ground.
An interesting archaeological find has
been reported from the neighborhood of
Foster's Ferry, on the Warrior river,
about nine miles south of Tuskaloosa,
Ala. When the recent high waters re
ceded from the river bottoms it was
found that the current had unearthed a
prehistoric burial ground. Great quan
tities of human bones, rough stonework
and pottery were left exposed. It is sur
mised here from the nature of the relics
found that it was a Choctaw burial
ground, but a thorough examination will
be made at once and the results reported.
The Season for Dog Distemper.
This spring season is very trj-ing for

care is taken of their exercise and diet

distemper. This will promptly announce
itself by running at the eyes and nose.
and the small quadruped should be at
once taken to the doctor. No home
treatment is? safe, and a good doctor will
cure him in two days and prevent a re
lapse. Keep vermifuge comfits always
by you and give him one now and then
aa a preventive. New York Press.
A Fault In the New Coins.
"There is a very serious defect in the
new silver half 'dollar that few people
appear to have discovered," said Milton
Everett, of San Antonio, Tex. "The
new coin ?s nearly as brittle as steel. A
hard blew from a hammer breaks it
completely in two. Y"ou can pound all
day on the coin which this one is in
tended to succeed and not crack it
which seems to attest a superiority of
coinage in favor of the old half dollar.
