A Ventriloquist Aboard.
"There was a very mad conductor on
the eastbound train the other night,"
said John D. Paterson, a Kansas City
man. "The car was crowded, and 1
shared my seat with a St. Louis drum
mer, who was bent on having a good
time at the expense of his fellow pas
sengers. As the conductor came along
a dog under our seat began to snarl
viciously. The conductor looked hard
at the drummer. 'No dogs allowed in
the coaches; take him into the baggage
car,' he said. 'Not my dog,' replied the
drummer, as he made a vicious kick.
The cur went howling under the seats
the full length of the car. The passen
gers became interested. The conductor,
porter and brakeman made search for
him. He continued to run and ho
The passengers joined in the search, 1
no dog could be found, and the qu..
was finally given up.
"Jnst as the passengers had settled
into a doze the dog set up a heart
breaking, ear piercing howl. The
search was renewed, but without suc
cess. As we pulled into Bunker Hill the
dog got tinder the wheels, and his death
song was something appalling. The
conductor was overjoyed. He got off
and looked for fragments of the dog.
The drummer had alighted, and as the
conductor called all aboard, he put
down his grips and fillet! that train from
engine to sleeper with dog fights. He
was a ventriloquist. Tht conductor was
so mad that he forgot to take up tickets
for forty miles." St. Louis Globe-Democrat.
Doctored Its Own Tall.
A small boy gave a lesson in natural
history the other day. He brought into
the office a 6pecies of lizard popularly
known as the "swift." Holding the lit
tle reptile above his head he let it fall
to the floor, with the result that a sec
tion of its tail was broken off. Noticing
that it was minus a part of its prehen
sile organ, the swift, after discovering
the piece of tail lost, backed slowly up
to it, and placing the stub against the
piece, held it in contact for a few sec
onds, and then ran swiftly away with
his tail glued together, apparently as
sound as ever.
The experiment was repeated several
times, with the same result. Swift glue
could doubtless be used successfully in
sticking dismembered limbs, fingers,
etc., together, and we throw out this
suggestion to local surgeons for what it
is worth. Ontario Observer.
A New Element in a Mineral.
It is reported that a new element has
been recognized in a mineral found in
Egypt by Johnson Pasha in 1890. This
mineral, first called "Johnsonite," but
afterward masrite, consists mainly of
aluminium, manganese, cobalt and iron,
in combination with sulphuric acid. It
dissolves in water and yields on treat
ment with sulphuric hydrogen in an
acetic acid solution a white precipitate,
from which a pure hydroxide was pre
pared. New York Journal.
She Did and She Didn't.
When you save a lady from being
killed in a runaway and she says
"Thanks," she really means, "The next
time you do anything of that sort please
don't muss the lace on my dress." If
she really felt any sense of gratitude
she would exclaim, "Call around and
IU introduce you to my youngest sis
ter." Detroit Tribune.

'- Why They lleg Newspapers.
Begging newspapers seems to be one
of the occupations of Gotham's small
boy, and according to one of these
urchins a good revenue is derived from
the business. The practice in known a
"Canada business." A gang of eight oi
ten loys b.-sit-go the entrance to the
bridge and elevated road every morning
and keep an argus eye on all persons
carrying newspapers. They stretch out
their arms asking for the novspaier&
and often pull them out of the hands ol
The "newsies" are- very jM-rsistent,
and occasionally get into little snarls
with dyspeptic persons who get down
town in bad humor. The temper ol
tl ese people might bo intensified did
tliey know that, according to a confes
sion of one of the Iwiys, a newsdealer of
a speculative turn of mind originally
put the lys up to the practice they fol
low. If the newspaiters are too much
soiled to sell, the boys turn them ovei
to the speculator, who holds them in re
serve, paying the Itoys a pittance and
then realizing full value by handin
thein over to the respective newspapers
as "return' and getting copies of the
current date for them.
The youngsters have learned his meth
od though, and most of them do theii
own "returning" as well as "begging"
now. The practice is bad every way, as
it is fast converting the little hustlers
into indolent beggars. New York Com
"All's Well That Ends Well."
The Scotch, with unconscious absurd
ity, sometimes talk of "tempting Prov
idence." In writing "All's Well That
Ends Well," Shakespeare was "tempt
ing" the higher criticism. Ever since
the days of Zenodotus in Alexandria the
higher criticism has reveled in "athe
tizing," or marking as spurious, this part
of an author's work because it is "nn
worthy of him," that part because it is
"not in his style," a third portion be
cause it is a repetition of something lie
has said elsewhere, and so on, till in
Homer there are few lines to w.ich
some. German or some Alexandrian
Greek has not urged objections. To
similar exercises of idle ingenuity has
"All's Well That Ends Well" been ex
posed. When Lucian met Homer iu the For
tunate islands, he asked tho poet which
of the rejected passages were really hi?
own. "All and every one of them.'
answered the shade; and Shakespeare'!;
ghost might have made as inclusive a
response to critical Imiuiries. Yet "All's
Well" is certainly a play full of difficul
ties and enigmas. It was first printed
in the folio of 162:3, and very badlj
printed it was. None of the drama
contains so many passages that appear tr
be corrupt; none is so rich in the uuin
telligible; none so open to conjectural
emendation. Andrew Lang in Harper's
Crafty Master Fox.
A fox was one day seen coming out ol
a pile of stones near the water side.
He hid in the heather for awhile and
then pushed out something on the water,
which proved to be a bunch of moss
The wind took it into the middle of the
lake and blew it past some ducks sitting
on the surface.
Having watched his venture for per
haps ten minutes with apparent satis
faction, and observed that it neared the
ducks without arousing their suspicions,
our friend tiegan to collect another and
larger bunch of moss, which he allowed
to float in the same direction, but this
time he swam behind it, taking care to
show only his eyes and nose above
Just as it was passing the group of
ducks he made a sudden dive, pulled
down a bird and swam back to shore
under water. Arrived there he earned
the duck to the pile of stones, where his
wife and daughter were no doubt wait
ing to enjoy the fruits of his labors.

Immunity for the Fireilies.
Birds do not eat fireflies, and even
bats, which seem to eat everything else
that they can chew or swallow, never
touch a lightning bug. There must be
something distasteful in this insect to
the feathered world, and thus the spe
cies is preserved, for if it were not so
lightning bugs would soon become ex'
tinct, as the torch they carry would
only serve the purpose of attracting
It majr be that the uncanny apjear
ance of the insect, giving forth as it
does a brilliant flash of light every mo
ment or two, deters birds and bats from
attacking it, but if a lightning bug were
a toothsome morsel to a bird's bill, any
number of the feathered world would
soon overcome their repugnance to the
little living torch and go hunting for
lightning bugs. St. Louis Globe-Democrat.
Wild Horses in Russia.
In the steppes of Russia, where wolves
abound and the horses lead a wild life
and have to shift for themselves, it is
said that a young colt will sometimes be
made so furious by the persecutions of
his enemies that he will rush wildly
among a drove of wolves and bite and
strike until he has slaughtered a large
number of them. These horses are ex
ceptionally fierce, rendered so, it is sup
posed, by the extreme variations in the
climate. At one time of the year they
suffer from the intense heat of a tropical
sun and at another they live among
raging snowstorms and extreme ctld.

A Drowning Man'a Kspr rlsuee.
To prevent any person fit JTn interfer
ing Willi rny design I juuv Juto tho
river late in tho of teruoo i Friday. No
one appeurcd to bo alx at at tho timo.
When 1 struck the watev I immediately
sank, going down and down, aud yet
being carried forward until I thought I
would never again ari 0. A sonnd roared
through my head; it sooruod to me it
would burst. I cqxf ied my mouth and
attempted to bruatr.e, botog unable, to
endure tho preftstf ro longer, but tho
water rushed in anl 1 closed my mouth.
I was again Conrjrxrfiled to open it. More
water entered. j.'he feeling was horri
ble. Just when 11 bought all was over I
reached tho urf aco of the water about
fclty feet loom ;the shore and 100 feet
from whero-I Inn 1 jumped in. Nearby
was a sioamooair on wuicn stood a man
with a long pobo with an iron hook on
the end. It. took only a- second to eeo
those things, and in fact I had just timo
to get one breath when I again sank with
my mouth open. My past life flashed
before me, and I was again a cliild. The
picture. of my father and mother stood
out in bold relief. I reached out my
hand to them. Tho roaring of the water
sounded liko the sweetest of music.
Suddenly I saw light and thought I was
in paradise. A largo green field covered
with roses and other flowers, whoso fra
granco I could smell, came in view. I
felt as if I was being fionie up by some
winged messenger whom I could not
see, but whoso presence I could feel.
I remembered nothing more until I
felt a rough jerk. My rescuer had suc
ceeded in fastening tho boathook in my
clothing. As my body was being pulled
from out of tho water tho picturo
changed; instead of paradise, tho place
in which tho devil dwells, with all its
fires and swarming with hideous, red
dressed creatures and other things, pre
sented themselves in my mind, only to
again quickly disappear and leave me
in darkness. When I camo to I was sur
prised to learn I had been unconscions.
Every muscle in my body pained me,
but my brain was jierfectly clear.

Andirons as Ornuuients.
Genuine antique andirons are compar
atively rare in New York, and they are
for the most part of simple design, al
though ornate in detail often. Tho very
earliest andirons were of wrought iron,
and few of them have come down to
this century, especially in America.
One characteristic of early forms was
the curved top, ending in a diamond
Bhaped mass of iron, from 1J to 3 inches
in diameter. The goat's foot, not with
divided hoof, however, is a common
characteristic of early form, in brass as
well as iron.
When the andiron was developed as
an ornament, small andirons, called
creepers, came to bo used with the large
ones. The latter were for show; tho
creepers were to hold the logs, and per
haps to prevent them rolling out upon
the floor. Tho creepers were of wrought
iron, with front only ten or twelve inches
high, curving into a ball. Later they
were used alone in small fireplaces and
imitated and elaborated in brass. They
aro not uncommon at the antique shops,
and they aro exactly imitated in wrought
iron by modern manufacturers and sold
at from $1.50 to $3 a pair. Another
comparatively earlv form is a wrought
iron strip with simply wrought iron feet
and a brass knob at the top. New York
One of Laliotichere's Stories.
One of Labouchere's stories about the
admiralty and tho way "My Lords" con
duct their labors at Whitehall is as fol
lows: A few years ago a gun was lost by
bursting in the Sea of Marmora, and
upon reading the report of the admiral
in command of the fleet "My Lords" wero
moved to telegraph to ask whether there
was any chance of the muzzle of the
gun being recovered. The answer was
that in view of the fact that the gun
had been lost in eighty fathoms of wa
ter, nearly out of sight of land, where
no cross bearings could have been taken,
the likelihood of its recovery was very
remote. Thereupon ' 'My Lords" wanted
to know why no engineer's accounts had
been sent in from the vessel in question,
but they ceased telegraphing when the
admiral replied that the ship had been
for ten years a sailing ship! Cor. New
Athletics In a Theater.
On one occasion during Mrs. Langtry's
tenancy of the St. James' theater, ath
letic sports were held on the stage after
the evening performance, in which not
only the members of the fjompany, but
also Mrs. Langtry and her sister took
part. One rather novel event, which
was confined to the stage hands, was a
race from the stage to the gallery, in the
center of which Mrs. Langtry's hand
kerchief had been suspended.' This was
awarded to the fortunate winner, to
gether with a substantial monetary ad
dition. London Tit-Bits.
Snakes That Climb Trees.
Those pit vipers without rattles which
belong to the Old World (Trimeresuri)
are Indian, and a dozen different species
are given and described by Mr. Boulen
ger. They are robust snakes, with rather
short tails, which can strongly grasp,
and thus they are enabled to climb about
trees which form their natural habitat
Perfumes Sometimes Injurious.
As a rule whatever perfume is un
pleasant to the individual should be
avoided, but as exceptions occur to
every rule, nervousness or debility
which cannot be accounted for may
sometimes be explained by the use of &
