Some Incident In the Life of Tlii
Notcil HiikIInIi Kop.
An English paper prints a number of
Btoiies of Beau Brummel, some of
which perhaps are not generally
known. At the Pavilion, at Brighton,
ho ordered the footman to empty his
snuffbox Into the tire because a bishop
had taken n pinch unasked. A man
whom he had met at dinner offered
him a lift In his carriage to Lady Jer
sey's ball. "Thank you exceedingly,"
Biild tho Beau, "but how are you to go?
You would not like to get up behind,
and I cannot be seen In the same car
riage with you." He made no secret
of his humble birth and when asked
about his parents declared that "the
poor old creatures both cut their
throats years ago eating peas with a
knl f p." Once at least Brummel met
his match. He was playing hazard at
Brooks', when a well known alderman,
a brewer, was ono of the party.
"Come, Mashtub," said Bruinmel, who
was the caster, "what's your set?"
"Twenty-live guineas," was the reply.
"Well, then, have at the mayor's pony,"
said Brummel, who proceeded to cast,
and by a run of luck won tho stake
twelve times In succession. Pocketing
the money, he thauked the brewer and
promised thot In future he would drink
no one's porter but his. "I wish, sir,"
replied the brewer, "thnt every other
blackguard In London would tell me
the same." '
AN AID TO HEARING.
Opera GIrhmcb Help the Ear n Well
it the Kyen.
"Hurry them along, please," Bald the
woman customer as she left n pair of
opera glasses for repairs at a Chest
nut street store. "1 can't hear well at
tho theater without them."
Another customer who was waiting
smiled when the woman left at her ap
parent mistake. "She meant she could
not see," he observed.
"No," rejoined the optician; "she
meant just what she said. Opera
glasses are nu aid to hearing as well
as to sight. You can prove It any time
you are seated well toward the rear In
a theater by training the glasses on a
singer. As long as you keep the singer
under scrutiny with the glasses you
will be able to follow the words of the
song with ease. Drop the glasses and
you will notice a difference. It will
require more or less of a strain to
catch the enunciation distinctly.
"By tho ubo of opera glasses a the
ater patron Is enabled to note distinct
ly every movement of a singer's lips,
nnd the unconscious 'Up reading' great
ly aids the sense of hearing. If you
ever attend a public meeting where It
Is Impossible to get close to the speak
ers provide yourself with opera glasses.
and you will be surprised how greatly
they will aid you In hearing." Phila

"So you think that scientific farming

"When clover was lirst Introduced
Into Australia It grew there beautiful
ly, but It never seeded. The soli was
all right. The climate was all right.
What, then, was the trouble?
"A scientist studied the matter, and
this is what he found:
"He found thnt the native Australian
bees had tongues too short to reach
the clover's pollen forming organs.
These organs In red clover are hidden
deeply In the henrt of the tubellko
petals and they can only be fertilized
by the long tongucd bumblebee. If
red clover Is not visited by bumble
bees, who bear the golden pollen
grains from one blossom to another, It
never seeds It cannot be grown. The
scientist, nwnre of the fact, soon put
his linger on the barren Australian clo
ver's trouble. He Imported a lot of
long tongued bumblebees. These bees
flourished, and Immediately Australian
clover, which had promised to be a
failure, became one of the country'
richest and finest crops." Chicago

Although the goldfish occurs In n
wild state In Japan, It Is probable that
China some 400 years ago furnished
the stock from which the wonderful
varieties of Japanese goldfish have
been' bred. It is reported that In feudal
days, even when famine was abroad in
the land and many people were starv
Ing, the trade In goldfish wns nourish
ing. The demand at present appears to be
without limit, and tho output shows a
substantial Increase each year. Many
thousand people make a living by grow
Ing goldfish for market, and hundreds
of peddlers carry the llsh through the
streets and along the country roads lu

A missionary traveling down the Lan
river In Mongolia says he passed thirty-one
rapids In one day. At most of
them were water mills for the grind
ing of arouintle trees Into powder to
make Incense. The trees are chopped
Into small pieces and thrown Into a
hole In a heavy millstone, which re
volves on a larger stone as the water
rushes through below. In tho rainy
season, when the river flows full and
fast, a pair of mills can grind 200 cat
ties (U00 pounds) of Incense a day. It
Is made up Into bundles of this weight
and sold, on the spot for fifty strings
