A WONDERFUL CREATURE.
did rtlyjto.-ouj Uttlo Clmmoloou and
The chameleon has for ages been
an object of curiosity , not only on ac
count of its ability to change its color
at will , as one might suppose who had
read accounts which mentioned only
that one characteristic , but also on ac-
: ount of a remarkable power which
admits of the creature instantly chang
ing its form. At times it takes upon
itself almost the exact form of a
mouse ; again , with back curved and
tail erect , it is the exact counterpart
af a miniature crouching lion , which
no doubt gave origin to its name ,
sharael-lcon , which clearly means
"ground lion. " By inflating its sides
and flattening back and belly it takes
upon itself the form of an ovate leaf ,
the tail acting as the petiole , the white
line over the belly becoming the mid
rib. When thus expanded it also has
the extraordinary power to sway itself
over so as to present an edge to the ob
server , thus greatly adding to its
means of concealment. As is well
known , the least excitement , as in
handling , will cause a change in the
color. In its normal state it is of a
light pea-green. When excited the
groundwork remains the same , but
transverse stripes about thirty in num
ber appear on the body. These stripes ,
which are of a very dark green to be
gin with , soon change to inky black
ness. The prevailing idea that the
chameleon takes upon himself the
peculiar hues of whatever he is placed
upon is as curious and widespread as
it is erroneous. Placed in boxes lined
with red or blue silk , they retain their
pea-green color with no leaning
toward the brighter hues of the sur
STOOD ON HER RIGHTS.
Demanded Her Full Privileges and Got
Them , Too.
A conductor on the Iron Mountain
& Sou them railroad tells the following
incident : "We were whirling along
the other day through the granite hills
of Wayne county , behind time and
running at a furious rate , when the
engineer caught sight of an old wo
man slowly pottering ahead on the
track. Instantly the whistle was
blown. No heed , however , was taken
of it. Thinking the venerable dame
wonld cret out of danger in due time ,
the speed was not slackened , though
the screaming of the whistle made the
hiils ring. Yet still the old woman
kept slowly on , turning her head
neither to the right nor to the left
until the engine was almost upon her.
Then the brakes were put on with a
will and the train was stopped just in
time to save her life. 'What the devil
is the matter with you ? asked the en
gineer as he jumped off and took the
ancient dame by the shoulders. 'Guess
you needn't scream so. You have made
fuss enough already , ' was the caustic
reply. 'You heard the whistle , then ? '
"Sartainly. I han't deaf. ' 'Then ,
why in thunder didn't you get off the
track ? ' 'You han't
got no right to
run over folks as I knows on and it's
your business to stop when you see
them walking on the track ! ' The
swearing of the army in Flanders was
nothing compared to that of the engi
neer as he pushed her aside , sprang
upon the machine , and set it going
again to the tune of forty miles an
PECULIARITY OF LEPROSY.
Its Victims Are Insensible to the Effects
"Down at Honolulu , " ' said Harry
Diamond , " ! had a battery and worked
the innocent Kanakas with the old
83 gold piece. That is , I'd place the
piece in the bottom of a jar of water
connected with the battery. Then I'd
tell the native boys that they could
have the money if they'd pick it out of
the jar and hold the handle of the
other pole of the battery at the same
time. Of course the moment their
hands struck the water the circuit was
completed , their fingers would be
doubled up and they couldn't touch
the money if their fortunes had de
pended on getting it. I had many a
laugh and achieved quite a reputation
among the boys as a wizard who con
trolled the devils in the water.
"One day when several young ladies
were in the officea lad came inpushed
On by a number of companions who
had attempted to secure the S5 and
failed. He had been persuaded to try
for the money , and I explained the
trick to the ladies in an aside as I ar
ranged the apparatus. The boy took
the handle , and we all prepared for a
"He put his hand into the water ,
slowly drew out my fiver and quietly
walked off with it ; while I stood with
mouth open , afraid to face those girls ,
and praying for a volcanic eruption to
turn the trend of thought.

electricity didn't effect him. "
The Largest University.
The biggest university in the world
is at Cairo , Egypt a country which is
not mentioned at all in the statistics
and it has 10,000 students. They come
from every part of the Mohammedan
world , and they study Mussulman law ,
history , theology , and other branches
needed to confirm them in the faith of
Mohammed. They sit on the floor of
an enormous court and study aloud ,
and the Western visitor who calls on
them during study hours thinks he has
struck the original site of the Tower
of Babel , and that the confused of
tongne haven't stopped talking yet.
To Dam the Zuyder Zee.
A report recently published in Hol
land proposes to close the Zuyder Zee
by means of a dam that shall be con
structed from the mainland on each
side of the island of Weiringen. The
idea is to drain this area , which will
then "be-exceedingly valuable for agri
