' Wild ltd Inventor.
Tbo lite Emperor Dnm I'odro, of
Hazll, o'noe g.va uudionco Co n young
, engineer who eutno U nhowhlrn a How
r nnpllanoe for stopping railway engine.
Tho emporor was pleased, with tho
thin? and said: t
"We will put it at once to a practi
cal tost- Tho day of tor Uv morrow have
J'SfiSs engine ready vo will liavo It
ooftplea' to my saloon carriage, and
then you can fire away. When going
at full speed' I will unexpectedly give
the filghal to stop, nnd then wo will
ice how tho apparatus will work."
At the appointed time tho omporor
entered bis carriage and tho engineer
mounted his engine, and on they went
' forn considerable distance; Indeed, tbo
young ongtncoi began to suspect that
tho emperor bad fallen asleep, when
" tho train suddenly came to a Bhnrp
curvo round the edgo of the cliff, on
tnrnlng which tho drlvor saw, to his
horror, au Immonae bowlder lying on
, tho rolls.
Ho bad just sudlclont prcsonco of
mind to turn the crank on bis brake
and pull up the engine within a oouplo
of yards of tbo fatal block.
Hero the omporor put bis bead out
pf the window an 1 asked what thoy
w'ero stopping for. Tho engineer
polntod to the plcco of rock, on seolng
which Dora l'odro burst Into n morry
'1'nsh tho thing on one nldcl" ho
' called out to tho englnoor, who bad
Jumped down from tbo locomotive; and
when tbo lattor In hta confusion blind
ly obeyed, and klikod tho stono with
his foot, it crumbled Into dust.
j Tt was a block of starch that Dom
Pedro had ordered to bo placed on tho
ratlB tho night beforo.

TABLE TURNING IN CHINA.
llorr tho Alinoud-nyoil Medium Couduul
11 Celestial Kcunco.
As thing4 go by contraries In China,
wo find the phenomenon of table turn
ing is reversed; in other words Chinese
tables, Instead of turning on their leg
whirl around on their heads with their
lcg3 pointing to the celling. The di
rections usually given are to plaoe u
couple of chop sticks at right auglei
a ross a mortar or bol lilled wlth,
watcr, and upon theso the table is
turned upside down.
Four children are then called In, aud
to each Is assigned a leg, on which ons
hand is gently laid, while the othsr
seizes the free hand of a companion.
The medium then reads an iit'aututloa
and soon the table b"giii3 to hoars
with emotion and at last revolves, car
rying the- lads, along with increase I
velocity, until tho table is whirled on
Its axis. The Chinese are said to im-.
plieity believe that table turning i
tho work of devils or spirits, yet it is
never performed save for tho bport it
yields, nor do they ever attempt Wi
by this means.
A DEVOTES OF MORPHEUS,

It is said tho Dnko of Davonshira
goes to sleep in tha houi3 of lord.s.
What else is he to do tihould that uu
gust house s t lato, as it does three or
four times a year? IJesides, it is th
custom tj go to oleep in parliament
when you have a mind to. The rules
forbid the p -rusal of a, newKpaper, a
magazine or a book. If a peer or a,
member of the commons dedres tt
read ho mu&t go to te reading-room
or the library.
Therefore, when a bore in on his
legs about 10 or U o'clock, nnd his dif
fuse and uninteresting commonplace
are running out hi turgid verbosity,
what hotter thing ean a statesman di
than go to sleep?
When in the lower house as Lord
