against the products of tho African

though tho Cape stones have often
failed in color, they have as often come

A Meroiitg Scene.
About eight o'clock -yesterday morn
ing a man smoking plug tobacco in an
old clay pipe walked out of a Michigan
avenue saloon with a rat in a trap. 'He
looked neither to the right nor the left
until he had i cached the middle of the
street. Then he placed the trap on the
ground and whistled for his dog. If he
had a dog, the animal did not respond,
but the public did: In less than two
minutes thirty men were rushing to the

"Hold on! Wait for the dogs'." yelled
half a dozen voices at once.
"Keep cool nnd form a circle!" com

grin of his baton.
The man with the trap spread a largo
handkerchief over it nnd wailed. He

Then four or live men camo runnin"
up with dog under their arms, ami ten
or lifteen dogs on foot followed behind.
There was a- light between a bull-dog
and a Newfoundland, and thcro woulH

not a second policeman appeared.
Order was finally restored. The doc-s
wore arranged an a circle and held Cv
their collars, and the placid man slowlv

carefully around, and then raised tho
trap and shook the rat out. All tho
dogs made a rush, but in ten seconds
each and every, canine walked oft on bus

the rat up to view.
".It's a crockery rat"'' ho yelled as
he whirled it around.
" Yes, it vhas a grogcry radt, nnd ho

placid man as he walked off with his
