The art of ncerilo making was kept

revealed by Christopher tJrooning.
In tho little town of Kedditch, a few
miles from Birmingham, tho needle

One of the most prosperous imhis

of horseflesh for ('.Mid. There are in
the city of I'aris lu shops for the
sale of horseflesh, and in the course
of the year more than i'l.ouo horses,
til mules ami 273 donkeys have been
killed and eaten by tho Parisians.
The most singular point about this
traffic is that the price of the flesh is
equal to that of good beef -"J cents
a nuind. It is only fair, however, to
add that two thirds of this meat has
been converted into sausages, so that
it is more than possible that the con
Kilmers are ignorant of the source of
their toothsome dish. It is now easy
to understand how it is that good
horses are so scarce in the I'aris
riacres. At 20 cents a pound a fat
horse would lo worth more when he
was dead than alive. Chicago News

Trivial circumstances give names
to children. A gallant Irish soldier
was the father of two girls, named
resiHH tively Jane and Pluvlte.
Some one asked him why he had
selected the latter name, and he im
plied: "Well, sorr, ye see our eldest was
tKrn m January, so we called her
Jane, and tho other was I Mini in Fel-

of these was located in Birmingham
and tho other was out somewhere in

died. 1 was a reporter on The Her

Birmingham coroner. New railroads
were being built all around the city,
mines being explored and all kinds
of improvements going on.
"Of course there were accidents,
and the accidents oftentimes brought
death. 1 got on tho coroner's jury
every case, and when I served my
tees were KsJ.50. Sometimes there
were as many as !.'0 cases a day and

her of species of most curious sea
animals are designated ; they are also
known as sea rollei-s, sea cucumbers,
in French as cornichoiis de nier, and
scientifically as holothiw ians. They
are among tho most sluggish of ani

animals art slower than the holo

One might watch them half a day

and hardly see them change their

to seek quarters at a lonely farm

an excellent supper, killing a chicken
for them, gave them clean, comfort
able beds and had a savory breakfast
ready in the morning. When they
nsked how much they should pay her,
she replied in a deprecating way
that as times were a little hard she
would have to charge them more
