A Neat Parlor Trick.
This is a neat and offectivo trick
to perform boforo a company ofemen,
women and children, from whom you
can borrow tho few materials you
need. Thoso nro a sliver half dollar,
a largo wiro hairpin, a heavy ring,
and a long hatpin or "stickpin."
Bend tho hairpin into tho shape
shown in tho picture. Force tho half
dollar into tho narrow hook on one
end of the hairpin, which hook you
havo pinched well together so that it
will grip tho coin tightly, nnd hang
the ring on tho other, inoro open hook.
Now balance tho coin at a point near
its edgo and in lino -with the two
The Needle, Coin and Ring,
hooks, on tho point of tho hatpin,
which you hold vertically in your left
You can noarly nlways make it bal
ance on somo point, but to mako the
trick offectivo tho pin should bo very
near tho edgo of tho coin, so if tho
ring is not very heavy you may havo
to borrow another ono and slip it in
tho hook beside tho first. Or you
enn uso a light ring and ntbstituto a
quarter for tho half dollar.
Now, If you blow against tho ring
tho wholo affair will turn on its pivot,
and by giving a good puff every time
the ring comes round you can mako
it spin very fast and keep on spinning
a long timo. If the hatpin is very
sharp and of vory hard stool it will
gradually boro a hole in tho coin. In
deed, it is possible to baro clear
through a soft coin in this way.
Of courso you should practice this
trick boforo you try it in public.
Then, if tho ring is a brnss ono and
tho coin your own, you can givo your
merry-go-round to the youngstors, who
will have lots of fun with it.
Wardrobe of Mr. Dog.
In Paris they havo como to look up
on tho dog as a member of tho family
nnd to study his dross nlmost as care
fully as if ho wore ono of tho children.
Thero are dressmakers who design
garments for dogs only, and every soa
son brings its now canlno fashions.
Tho dog's wardrobo includes such ele
gant crentions as a white hairy cloth
overcoat, bordered with white mohair
galons, with a red velvot collar and a
pocket for tho handkerchief. Ho also
has -colored cambric nightshirts, rub
ber shoes, thick, fluffy dressing gowns
to wear after a bath, straw and felt
hats, special wicker sofas, cushioned
and bedecked with garlands and rib

Blind Boys' Football.
Football and many other outdoor
games aro played by tho blind, certain
changes being mado so that In each
gamo tho sen so of hearing takes tho
place of sight, says tho Baltimore Her

is fastened to tho ball, and by tho
bell's tinkle tho ball's location is do
Tho blind delight in races of all
sorts. Thoy do not run toward a
tapo, as tho seeing do, but toward n
bolt that jangles briskly.
It is odd to see tho blind nt their
games. Thoy play gravely, and thoy
maintain a profound silence, for if
they mado a noiso the voices of their
guiding bolls could not be heard.
Thero aro plenty of patented hooks
and devices for catching flBh, but
when thoy are not avallablo all sorts
of ingenious devices aro rigged up by
thoso who tiro of sitting in tho sun
for hours wondorlng why tho fish don't
hook themsolves. Hero is ono qf
them. It is not recommended whon
thoro is a scarcity of bait, but other
wise it can bo used with success.
It mii3t bo kept in mind, even with
this device, thnt all fish do not bito on
a hook and pull anxiously in tho hope
of being caught. Tho slightest pull of
How the Hooks Are Placed,
a line should bo responded toby the
fisherman, who muBt pull hard enough
to jeyle tho barb of tho hook through
tho very tough fiber of tho mouth.
With this in mind a flshormnn has
bottor chances with this dovico than
ono with tho plnin hook.
Each hook should carry n vory small
piece of bait, nicely covering tho point
and barb. The bottom hook can carry
tho attractive bait, but the others are
used id cntch tho fish.

Blind Cared for In Japan.
In Japan no blind person is 'left
without tho opportunity and ability to
oarn his own livelihood in some hon
orable pursuit. Each boy who is de
prived cf sight is thoroughly trained
in ono of two occupations which seem
peculiarly adapted to his condition,
music and massage. Therefore, if
nothing elso is opened to him
through his own choice or the circum
stances surrounding him he can at
least live upon tho practico of a ror
spcctable profession. - . l
A 8plder's Appetite.
Tho saider has a tremendous appo

portionately to tho human scalo ho
would eat at daybreak, approximately,
a small alligator, by 7 a. m, a lamb, by
9 a. m. a calf, and by one o'clock a
hoe, and would finish up with a lark
