A well known veiitrilomiNr who had
consented t give a performance in aid
of charity heard that certain members
of his prospect he audience were de

with a view of confounding him. The

three dummies on chairs, and the artist
made his appearance. His perform
ance was unusually successful, the
muscles of his face giving no evidence
of his art. The changes of voice were
marvelous, and the astonished crowd
at the close of the exhibition gave him
a rousing cheer. Again and again
they called him back, and he express
ed his pleasure by innumerable bows.
At last the heerim; ceased, and he

"A granddaughter of Wordsworth,
being full of admiration for the young
poet who was to succeed her grand
father in laureate honors, was once
taken to see Mr. Tennyson by Mrs.
Taylor, the wife of another poet or
some distinction. Tennyson received
them ery badly, showing great irri
tation at being disturbed, and when
Mrs. Taylor rallied him on his manner
he said: 'Madam. 1 am a poor man
and as I can't afford to buy the Times
I hire it from the stationer's. He
charges me a penny for It. which enti
ties me to keep it for au hour. Why
will people always select just that
hour to come and call upon me";' After

Currency In China.
Writing from the interior of China, a
traveler says: "Currency is primitive
to a degree. Lump silver only is used
and copper 'cash. Coined money is
not current. Even in Ilonan city,
which is distant only two days by rail
from I'ekiu. lump silver, the same cum-
i brous currency that lias been used for
centuries, is still employed. It is cut
into small pieces by hammer and chis
el. Every towu and village has Its
own weights and scales, aud there is
no pretense at uniformity."

The Generous Arab.
"One day when in our wandering!
we happened to camp near some roll
Ing country the sheik and I rode off
in search of gazelles." says a traveler
in Arabia. "We found a large herd,
and, being mounted on good horses, we
managed to ride them down, throwing
ourselves off our horses for the shot,
then galloping on again. We killed sis
gazelles in about au hour and rode
back to camp with enough meat for a
big feast. It is the custom that who
ever kills game should provide a feast
for all bis frieuds. On the occasion of
these feasts i uotlced thai there was
always u crowd of hangers-on waiting
at the end for a scrap of food, half
starved looking boys ami ragged men.
These were orphans whose parents
had been killed or men whose herds
had beeu 'lifted by other Arabs, and
as n result they were destitute, for the
law of the Hedouin is 'survival of the
fittest in its strictest sense. Hut the
sheik supplied food liberally, and I
noticed that he always looked after
the poor and fed the hungry."

An English magazine records two
dream stories. In one a lady, having

in a wood near tier house in Ireland,

root or a certain tree. Next day she
found it then. She supposed her eye
must have seen it after it dropped,

Au attorney went to a livery stable
and hired a team for two or three
hours aud at the end of that time, in
a state of nhentmiiidedness, left the
team at another 1 1 very stable, where
it remained eight days. At stable Xo.

he kept the team a month the bill
would he paid promptly ou presenta
tion. .They presumed that he knew
what he was about aud concluded it
was his business aud not theirs. At
stable Xo. 1! there was equal freedom
from anxiety. The attorney came
there, left the team and went away,
saying nothing. They put the horse
into a stall and 'chalked it down" ou
the ollice slate, knowing him to be a
business man who paid cash. Discov
ery came at last, and the lawyer was
presented with two bills, oue for eight
days' hire and the other for eight days'
keep. He paid both bills promptly,
but it cured him of being absentmind

The Coffee Cup In Persia.
The expression "to give a cup of
coffee" has in Persia a somewhat omi
nous significance. This is due to the
fact that the coffee cup is one recog
nized medium for conveying poisou.
Some years ago the governor of Aspa
dana. having long lieen at daggers
drawn with the chief of a powerful
mountain tribe, determined in this
way to put an end to all trouble. He
professed to entertain a great degree
of friendship and esteem for the chief
tain and invited him to visit him at his
palace. The chief unsuspiciously came,
accompanied by his two young sons.
For a week they were royally enter
tained. Hut at last one morning when
the chief came into his host's presence
he was coldly received, and an attend
ant soon stepped forward with a single
cup of coffee in his band, which he of
fered to the guest. The latter could
not fail to understand that he was
doomed. Preferring, however, steel to
poison, he declined the cup and was
thereupon, at a signal from his host,
stabbed to death.

A Pearl Stringer's Keen Eye.
The pearl stringer's eye becomes
practiced iu the detection of real and
imitation pearls. One glance is usually
sutlicieiit. A genuine pearl has a hard
look. It presents a sort of shell-like
surface with au indescribable blush.
This blush is so cleverly counterfeited
in was imitations that even those who
-re accustomed to handling pearls day
after day are likely to be deceived
In one of the large Xew York jew
elry houses last winter a customer
purchased a hand painted miniature
set in a frame of imitation pearls.
Ou examination it was found that sev
eral of the pearls had been slightly
defaced, and the whole lliiim was sent
to the manufacturing rooms for re
pairs. Uy chance it came under the
eye of one of the pearl stringers, who
instantly detected four genuine pearls
in the circle of imitation ones about
the picture. The frame had passed
through a dozen expert hands with
out any one's noticing the presence
of real pearls. Xo one could account
for their Immiiu there. If they had not
been detected the purchaser of the
frame would have had a bargain, for
the four ueuuiiie pearls were worth
many tiuie more than the picture
and the rest nt" its setting. Xew York

Costa Rican Volcanoes.
Costa Itica has been subject to earth
quakes for many years. Part of the
republic is exceedingly mountainous,
aud in this part of the country there,
are more than a score of volcanoes,
some of them dead, but a few that
break out periodically. There are
three or four that have been active
for more than a century. Some of
these are near Sail Jose, the capital.
Costa Iticans have always believed that
earthquakes, which the country has ex
perienced ever since it was first set
tied by Spanish adventurers, wero
caused) by the volcanoes. There Is
good grouud for this belief, because it
has been noticed that earthquakes of
more or less intensity followed the ac
tivity of these volcanoes. If the vol
canic eruptions were violent the mirth
quakes were correspondingly severe.
