The Philadelphia Press say s:
" A gcntlcmnit loaning against one of
the iron pillars in Doouer's Cafe, u
few evenings ago, was observed to
pitch suddenly forward, nnd ncaily
fall on the nimble floor. He turned
very pale, and looked about him to
see whether his involuntary action
had been noticed. It did- not appear
to have been, and lie walked back to
the pillar and examined it critically.
Then lie walked around it and looked
, up to the ceiling. He looked at the
floor, and then, to satisfy himself
whether the post had moved from its
place and kicked him, he pressed
hard against it with the palm of his
hand. In another instant the gen
tleman was sprawling on the floor.
He got up, and finding that he was
beginning to attract attention, he
walked back and sought tho proprie
tor. 'Is this place haunted,' he
asked, 'or have you a familiar spirit
which knocks people down?" Then
lie explained what had taken place.
'Nonsense, ' said the person addressed,
'show me the postt and I'll hug it if
you say so.' He was shown the post,
.and he put his arms around it. But
it was not for long. In less than two
seconds ho was where his guest had
been a few minutes before. At the
same time a howl of rage was heard
in the bar-room. A man was stand
ing there with a half-emptied glass of
wine in his hand. 'What does this
mean?' be demanded. 'I attempted
to take a -drink and a shock went
through me like a galvanic battery.
Do you ' He was interrupted by
another man, who entered suddenly,
with a yell and a muttered impre
cation. 'What's the matter hero?'
he asked, rather augrily. 'I put my
hand on an iron post out thcic,'
pointing to the dining-room, 'and I
believe I'm -.paralysed.' But this
tj'nie a group of excited men had
gathered around. 'The place is be
witched ' sJJ'd ouc 'or uaa been
magnetised,' suited another.
'No, gentlemen,' ventured a little
man, who was smiling bi oadly, 'it's
nothing of the kind. Thefio gentle
men have all leceivcd an ciectrio
shock. Make an investigation, and
see if am not light.' The hotel pio
prietor sent for the manager of the
Electric Tower Company close by.
He came, , and in less than twenty
minutes' had solved the mystery. It
was found that a steel screw, from
which depended an electric light, had
been pushed too far through,, the lath
and plaster, and came in contact with
an iron girder. The girder rests on
the pillar, and the base of the pillar
rested on another girder beneath tho
floor. The gentlemen who wcro
knocked down had completed the cir
cuit by touching the post, and the
man who thought he was drinking
molten lead did the same by placing
his foot on the metal rail in the front
of the bar after ho had lifted the
glass tohib lips. The screw was
given a half turn back, the circuit
was broken, and everybody was ic
Jieved." Jupiter through a telescopo shows
a red spot D0,O00 miles long and
0000 wide. With a high magnifying
power this part of the plauet is said
to look as if a Chicago girl had lcsted
ono foot on Jupiter on her way to
