MUSIC AND MICE.
I Suggestion of a Novel Trap- Effieet of
Plano Playing on Rodent*.
Truth of London stiggcsts that as
mice like mnsio there is an independent
fortune awaiting the man who will in
vent a small mnsio bo* which when
wound will run all night, since such u
contrivance wonld serve to call mice
into traps and wonld be to tho mioe
what a decoy is to a flock of docks or a
licking glass to a tiger. After this sug
gestion, which is not untrue to nature,
Truth goes on to say thnt musio that
sounds out of kilter to a critic’s ears
would also drive mice from tho house.
If the Truth writer had even uotually
seen a mouse under the influence of mu
sic, he would never liuve made that mis
take, Neither wonld ho have said "an
accordion would also make the agile ro
dent desert the house as he is said to
desert tho sinking ship.” Whether mu
sic affects rats is a question not yet set
tled by students of natural history.
As to tho uetual doings of a mouse
when listening to music, it has been ob
served that the playing of a piano, even
the turn turn of a beginner learning his
first tune, will cause mice of the com
mon house variety to run up and down
behind the plaster of a house, causing
it to ruttle in u way fit to disturb tho
most earnest student. One night half a
dozen persons were gathered in the par
lor of an Adirondack home listening to
a skilled player, who, hs a woodsman
said, "could make a piunner talk,”
when it was observed that the mien
were acting in an unusual manner. The
ordinary conduct of mice when they
hear piano musio is to merely rattle the
plaster, hut on this night they squeaked
and squealed and rattled thn plaster as
they had never done before. The rush
of tho rodents died away ufter the mu
sio stopped, hut it was hours before the
lust squeuk was heard.
One of the human listeners was a imy
wno miu hi min j 1 t lie sum an a narmon
icon player, and lie went frequently to
the woods, where, with tho aid of the
instrument, ho succeeded in culling
chipmunks, red squirrels, and on one
occasion a woodchuck, besides wood
mice, including tho deer mouse, and
tho smaller birds. The mice chiefly ruu
about tho player, with now and then a
squeak, but sometimes a low strain
with slight modulations would seem to
drive them insane, and then, without
hesitation, they would run over the
player as if be had been a stump. The
squirrels wore less demonstrative.
He Walked Far Too Far.
In a hotel in Berlin there is a night
watchman who did not take kindly to
the system adopted a few yeurs ago
requiring him to go through the hotel
at certain hours und touch an electric
button fixed up in various places.
After much thought he fixed up an
automatic arrangement on several of
the buttons so that they would report
at certain hours. Soon tho button sys
tem got so out of order that tho man
agement abolished it.
It was found necessary to keep watch
in some way on the gentleman, how
ever, and finally a pedometer was given
him to carry on his rounds which would
register every stop he took. All went
well tho first two nights thereafter, but
on tho morning following the third
night the old man was missing. On
search being made he was found sound
asleep in the engine room, and tho pe
dometer so attached to the piston rod of
the engine that with every stroke it reg
istered a step. It had been traveling all
night, and when taken off it registered
212 miles.—Berlin Gazette.
I>a Maurier Liked the Fashion*.
It was inevitable, as the principle ex
ponent of topical art by pictorial satire,
that Du Maurier should hold pretty
strong opinions about women’s dress
and fashions generally, and it is a fact
that he was by no means a decrier of the
productions of the modern modiste. On
i the contrary, he admitted a verv warm
! admiration for hi# feminine contempo
! rurie#—small waist#, pointed slioe#, big
hut# und ull—and felt a constant pleas
ure in delineating them. And uh for the
children of this fortunate country, h<
would say he could think of no painted
or sculptured children of the past who
were more charming—at least, to him.
j And t his, from an artist who never for
; got that lie was French by birth, was
j praise indeed —Lady’s Pictorial.

GARISH BOOK BINDINGS.
fhr/ Am In Rwl Tut* nnd Are Disliked
bj Bookworm nnd Scholar.
Books have a right to he, first of all,
books, not purveyors of whimsies in
color utul design. As matters are at this
moment three-quarters cf the new
books look more like some strange en
tree at a feast than liko everyday edi
bles. Yon take up one, and it has the
air of a cnrions ragout; there are un
known fragments of design flouting in
a sauce of queer elemental color. The
next one has an air us honest as apple
enuco at first glance; 'tis a pale greenish
thing, bnt presently you see that the
trail of a serpent is over all its border.
And who can hope for content from a
dish thus garnished?
Again a book, nnd this one burns
bright red nnd yellow, like n pudding
on tiro with cognac, which is all very
well for n pudding. Another has a cover
which looks like u resisting beefsteak
pounded by the stern band of fate in a
boarding house; another reminds you
irresistibly of coffee wherein cbickory
has too much inserted its diluting uid
uiul cream is missing. But, first and
last, the new books are ever more prone
to resemble small plots of deceptive
stuge verdure thun honest, simple souled
books. It is impossible to help doubt
ing the value of the literary pasturage
to bo found in such inclosures. Fortu
nutely one is sometimes most joyously
deceived. Authors huvo little “suy”
concerning tho garb of their volumes,
and often—good luck to them—they
rise superior to tho mechanical makers
of books and rejoioe tho souls of their
readers in spite of tho bindings.
And it must be repeated that in the
present bizarre and excessive fancies in
binding there is sued of abounding hope
ior mo iucuro. I'limisncrs urn groping
for something; few of them know wlmt.
But they will learn, and the world will
lie made glud by a genuine revival in
the lovely old half forgotten craft of
bookbinding, in that happy coming day
there will bo great honor for the men
who lead tho taste of this country to
ward better things in bookbinding, sim
pler and saner and more sincere.—Bos
QUESTION OF LUCK.
A Citation 't hat (ilDfliel Hie Other Side
of the Argument,
“1 hnto to hear peoplo say there's no
such tiling us luck,” rumurked the mel
ancholy Mr. DoJittlo,
“I don’t seo why,"his wife rejoined.
“Becuuse it isn’t true,” ho returned
with asperity. “A man can go on try
ing and trying and never get along,
and some other person will go ahead
and tumble into good tilings without
making any effort whatever.”
“Hiram, no great man has succeeded
without hard work.”
“That’s the kind of talk you always
hear. But nine times ont of ten it is all
owing to tho opportunity that presented
itself. Fortune just seems to lie in wait
to kidnap some men. Look at Sir Isaac
Newton. His name is handed down
from generation to generation. And
why? Simply because he was sitting
under a tree, and an apple happened to
drop on him. You can’t pretend that a
man is iu a position to claim superior
merit simply because, through no ac
tion or preference of his own, he gets
hit in the head with an apple, can you?”
“Then don’t tell mo about there not
being any such thing as luck.”
“It seems to me that you’ve chosen a
poor example in support of your argu
ment The case of Isaac Newton goes
to show that the difference is in the
people. If it had been some men that I
know of instead of Newton, tho first
thing they would have dono after tho
apple fell would have been to go into
the house and moan for the arnica bot
tle; then they would have spent two or
three hours of precious time talking
about their bail luck.”—Washington
rin.ls Will. VuPVa.
