A PRIMITIVE MANNER OF GOING TO
BED THAT SHOCKS A TRAVELER.
A Sleeping-Room SmoHly and Dimly
Lighted by Seal Oil Carbonic Add
Gu by the Cable Yard Scarcity of Fur
nitureMutton and Tnroipa.
All members of on Iceland family sleep in
one room, and this, indeed, often serves all
purposes save that of kitchen. Very narrow,
and from six to twenty f oet long, according
to the size of the family, with a row of low
bunks on either side, leaving a space three or
four feet trido down the centre,
these rooms are lighted by one
small window at the end, Tentilated by
the door or the trap through which they are
entered from below and warmed by the heat
of the bodies collected in them. The steeply
pitched roof, constructed of rafters and over
lapping boards and covered on the outside
with a thick layer of growing turf, rests on
low -nails, and makes it impossiblo to stand
upright, except under the ndga The priests'
houses and a few others hare guest chambers,
with sometimes a store, which is only used on
extraordinary occasions, owing to the diffi
culty of transporting fuel from the seaports.
Parties of tourists stop where there is a
church and shiver out tho night on the eight-
lncn wide benches, the vestment chests or the
floor, but if there are only one or two of yon
and no guest room or that is already filled,
you generally share, for experience1! sake, in
the somewhat promiscuous nightly packing
of the family for experience's sake, mind
you, and you always get it, as well as the
only good idea of the home life of the people.
A CHOWDED SIXEFI.VOBOOM.
Upon this evening 1 found myself in a room
smoUly and dimly lighted by seal oil, burned
with a wick of cottongrass in a lamp of brass,
much like the ancient lamps of tho Greeks,
but furnished with an overhanging arm and
a swivel and boathook arrangement, which
permits of its being stuck or hung wherever
tho user wishes. Two bunks on one ado and
one on the other were literally f ulL In one a
man and two boys, in another two women
and children, and in the third three men, all
sleeping like sardines in a box, tho head of
on? on tho same pillow as the feet of his bed
fellows, and the space that was not occupied
by human beings probably was by beings in-
After shaking up the many boxes and bun-
en's under tho rude mattress, and giving on
extra poke or two to the feather or down bed
which is the only form of covering known In
Iceland, one of the girls motioned us to the
bed n hero we were to sleep (an Iceland gen
tleman was to share my bed), and then, as if
it were an every-day occurrence to shock the
senses of a modest traveler, while wo were
stOl undressing she, with two others, pro
ceeded to disrobe and take possession of the
bunk opposito-ours, until "the last in bed put
oat the light." My compan Ion somewhat sur
prised me by a warning to secrete ray valua
bles I might have, but as he was an Ice
lander I thought it better follow his advice
than to trust to the proverbial honesty of his
countrymen, and I was soon unconscious,
breathing carbonic acid gas by the cubic
yard, but iu sweet oblivion until awakened
during the general turn-out next morning.
NEZD OF A LITTE CLEAS AIR.
Theda light revealed nothing new, except,
perhaps, the many little articles stuffed into
every nook and crovice. Furniture is scarce
and a chest of drawers a luxury in an Ice
landic habitation, and odds and ends arc hung
on nails in the roof, stuffed into the cracks or
in boxsx hidden away under the mattresses in
the bunks. Horn spoons, knives and forks,
bits of cloth, needles, books and fishhooks
were tucked promiscuously away, and old
clothes and lL.li hung over lines stretched
lengtiiwiso of tho ridgepole. It was interest
ing to see the men, after slipping into the few
clothes they had removed ux)n retiring, sit on
the edge of the bods chatting and tipping the
coffeo brought by the women.
Several tuno3 I was roused from my mus
ings by the rustling of the disarranged covering
in a bod which I bad supposed empty, and
presently a half-naked child would start up
from tho depths and stare in open-eyed won
der at tho stranger, who returod tho gaze
with a senso of tho ludicrous rising within
him. From beds where I had counted throe
tho night Iiefore four had already risen, and
how many more were to follow! At the other
end of tha aislo a mattras3 spread upon the
floor had served for the resting place of throe
more girls, whose accustomed bunk myself
and companion had probably occupied. By
tit, time 1 had begun to feel the need of a
little clean air. and, getting into my clothes,
I descended to tho guest-room, where I break
fasted on mutton and turnips, but
lightened thb tinio with a cup of chocolate
and some l-ngu.-Ji crackers. Iceland Cor.

Girls and Dors Caed to Amusl
T!ieralve in the Olden Time.
After tho writer had grown somo older and
had lieen regularly adopted in tho family ol
"no uns," and ran with the boys ho was al
lowed all tho privileges of the young men ol
the community end was told to consider him
hjf nt home, which ho did with a good will.
On a certain occasion it was decided by the
young ladies and gentlemen to have a frolic
at J. W'.'i, and I was warned to be on hand
with a few pounds of sugar for swoetening
and n couple of sVeirrof silk for fiddle strings.
Strings were scarco about hero then, and they
asked jouacpinrUrr apioco for them. I was
on hand at tho tune appointed with the sweet
ening and tho silk and ready to go after my
"gal." It was different then from now. If
3ou carried no partner with J ou, you had to
take the chani-, as every man had tho exclu
sive right to hii own partner. When I got
there, she was ready with a new homespun
dress which had never been worn. I, of
course, pndsol the check, and the stripe, and
the lit. It only took fir yards of cloth to
make a girl a drcsa in those days. But she
announced that she 33 ready to start and
out wo went. I jumped upon Bark Mill. She
lit up behin 1 mo mid caught a good hold.
And Uiat ony might rear, but she was there
if I did not coma off. Away wo went, and
came in sight of J. W.'s about sundown. The
crowd Mas gathering in rapidly, but no fun
had commenced. As we rode up some of the
girls sung out:
"X on we w ill ha vo somo fun. Here comet
J. and his gaL"
Jly partner rolled off liko a bag of rolls. I
lid my pony to a fresh sapling and wo went
in. The girls all yelled out:
MVhy, hero conies J.," liko they did not
know I was coming, and that I was always
on hand at every frolic.
" we w ill havo a reel,' they said. 'Did
you bring tho silkP
'Certainly. Rid you ever know me to fauT
The old lidy wantnd to know whero the
sweetening was, as she wonted it for tlw
"gals." V". B. spoko up and sail by all
means git o it to tho "gals;" we would get it
back in Vising them. Wo took our partners,
away went ths fiddle and on went tho dance
a long one. We danced for a while and
then we would play awhile. 'Old Sister
Pheby.' 'Johnny Brown,' It rains and it
hails,' 'The Londen bridge is breaking down,
and 'The big cat kicked out tho httlc cat's
rye" were among tho favorite plays. The
beauty of it wis every play wound up with
a ram of So.-. It was a glorious frolic
Tho kiaUng madi all hands feel liko they wert
at home. The writer made a small mis
take and liked to have caused trouble by
merely an oversight. We were playing a
play whero kissing was mixed up smartly.
One young lady was using tobacco and snufl
freely Her tooth-brush was in her mouth
and a little stream of amber ran down at
each comer. I kissed her on the cheek. She
stopped the song and yellwl out:
"J. is not playing fair. Ho kissed too on
I bogged her pardon and meekly asked her
to hold her face around. Doing so I bussed
her squarely in tho mouth. But this restored
peace and the frolic went on. W. B. was in
his right element. lie called all the sets and
arranged all the couples. 2o frolic could get
on without him. Uncle Jack was there, too,
nd along toward the morning hours he
wanted to dance. We began to sv-i signs of
red-eye. Men began getting noisy, dancing
stronger, and betting on their manhood, and
finally wound up in a little row; but with a
few skinned heads and somo bruises, about
day all made for their partners and carried
them home to think and fix for another frolic
soon. Franklyn (Ga.) JTews.

Judge A. W. Tourgee, the novelist aa.
lecturer, of Chautauqua county, J. Y., has
bout twenty patents granted on a new kar

to bo made entirely of meta and among the
advantages claimed for it are that it b lighter,
leas cumbersome,-more easily adjusted, and
will not chafe as much as a leather harness.
It is expected to cost about 80 per cent le

Atable. Chicago JobtbsuK
People who travel much run up against
many strange experiences. Not the least of
these are the curious ways adopted by the
trunk lines running west from this city to se
cure passengers. It is an experience that one
aa oniy in a, very lew other dties in the coun
try. In Chicago, St. Louis and New Orleans
Tirtnally the same methods aro pursued, but
tha experience can be had in no other eastern
city than New Terk. The strange experience
all comes about in this way: A resident of
Chicago, for example, tired of the wheat
speculative business, and the continued swag
ger about how much greater the Lake City is
than Is St. Louis, decides to leave there and
come to New York to get some idea of what
the great world is bio, and what real busi
TBZ TEATS or CTBCUXSTAKCIS.
lie goes to a local office of , say, the X. T.
& Z. road in that city and buys a ticket for
New York. He wonders, perhaps, why tho
ticket agent is so suave, why he is so anxious
about his patron's health, and why he asks so
pouieiynis name, when be Is to return west,
and perhaps at what hotel he is to stop when
mjxew xoric. tie wouldn't wonder if he
knew all tho inns and outs of the railway
passenger business. He learns somethimr of
them before he gets back to Chicago. It is
learned by reason of a train circumstances
which he has unconsciously set in motion
wnen no talked to that suavo ticket agent in
Chicago. That ticket agent, having secured
the money for tho passage east, wants
another whack at that pocketbook when the
passenger comes back home. So, in the caso
cited, the ticket agent would it down and
write to tho local agent of X. Y. & Z. here,
Mr. James Buckley, something like this:
"Chicaoo, Jan. . Joseph H. Thompson
left here to-day on ticket No. 137,423 over
our line. Ho is going to spend a week in
New York, and will probably stop at the
Metropolitan hotel. Catch him for the return
trip. Travels first class and sleeper.
"Ketch cm & Seixum."
Mr. Thompson does arrive here, and one of
the X. Y. & Z.'s men who daily scans the list
of hotel arrivals for old patrons of tho road
finds that Mr. Thompson is reported in the
daily hotel paper as a guest at the Metropoli
tan. Mr. Thompson takes in the town in the
most approved style, perhaps, and finds out
that Chicago isn't much of a town after all.
Mr. Thompson has about finished business or
sight-seeing, when he is met cither in tho
lobby of tho hotel or the bar-room by a spruce,
yonng man who would bo offended at being
called a "runner." But he is a runner all the
same. Tho two fall into conversation natur
ally, take a drink or a smoke together natur
ally, and Thompson is led to tell the day on
which he is gomg to start home. This last is
done unwittingly. Then tho young man asks
1 nompson how he came east, and Thomieon
say ho came by way of the X. Y. & Z.
"And you are going back by the same route,
I suppose, because they always treat one so
woll on the X Y. & Z." remarks the young
He isn't stunned a particle when Thompson
replies: "I thought Td try another road
going back so as to take in the scenery.'' The
runner had met such people before and had
talked them out of the scenery theory.
"People who make such experiments usually
regret them, ho remarks, "because, you see,
they miss the much more romantic scenery on
the X Y. & Z. Take a train back over the
same route, Thompson," he advises, "and see
the country you missed seeing coming on
east. You see you were asleep when you
passed through the most picturesque territory
on the route. That's a misfortune that cast-
bound passengers have to be subjected to."
And the runner looks as if be actually be
lieved tho fiction ho relates, and sighs over
what Thompson missed in tho way of scenery
coming cast. "And it costs ll.CO more to go
by way of the other route, too," adds tho
spruce railroad man. "That pays for two
meals," With this shot, which touches tho
economical sidoof the wild westerner, who
feels that during his visit horo ho has "blown
in" a little more monoy than he ought to havo
done, the runner leaves him. The shot has
struck and the spruco young man goes his
Die next morning, when Thompson comes
down to get his cocktail so as to save a 10
cent tip to a boy to bring it up to his room
he finds a letter in his box. That letter draws
attention to the fact that tho X Y. & Z.
road continues to bo picturesque, continues to
bo $1.50 cheaper In iterate for tickets than
the other route, continues to furnish meals
for 75 cents each two meals for the $1.50
saved and continues to have sleeping coaches
and various other things for tho comfort and
convenience of its patrons. It also gently,
but firmly indicates that trains leavo accord
ing to the inclosed schedule, and that ite offi
ces are plainly designated on that schedule.
Thompson always reads, commonly figures up
his finances, generally yields to the combined
arguments, and goes and buys a tickot home
by way of the i Y. Z. road.
There ore other ways in which these visit
ors oast ore unconsciously roped in, so to
speak, by tho shrewd local agents or by tho
"scalpers." Passenger agents and ticket
brokers havo men who daily visit tho hotels,
find out about tho arrivals, and follow care
fully with their circulars tho list of arrivals
as daily published. Hotel clerks are worked
to find out about the movements of the
patrons of the house, and drummers tell their
favorite ticket broker or agent when mer
chants have conio to town ami when they will
return home. Strangers hero w bo float about
town in the evening meet in all sorts of places
agreeable young men who are during tho day
employed in tieket offices, and who spend the
evenings at hotels and other public resorts in
the interest of their employers. They devote
themselves to seeking out and becoming ac
quainted with strangers in town, and while
buying them drinks or cigars give them their
card, which al ways-contain information that
the price of drinks or cigars is intended to
convey. That information U cither tho ad
vantage of some particular route to their
home, or the fact that tickets can be bought
at Mr. Someone's agency at less than schedule
rates. New York Times.

A leading physician, to whom tho reporter
applied for information, said:
"Tho custom is not now, though it has in
creased to a very unfortunate extent of late
years. So far as the effect of slate pencils and
chalk is concerned, there is no immediaU
danger to tho consumer, though it is a prac
tice to bo thoroughly discouraged. It is, of
course, merely a foolish, school-girl vagary,
founded on a misconception of facts. Slate
pencils and chalk will no more affct th
teeth or the complexion than wood or paper.
They are subrtanoes wholly foreign to the
system, and are, of course, thrown off in th
natural way. Of course, if consumed to
great excess, they would upset the stomach.
The habit U a most pernicious one, and every
effort should be made by teachers and parents
to break it up."
"How do you accocnt, doctor, for the fact
that the girls addicted to this habit really
have nice teeth and complexions!"
"Merely coincidences If you were to
examine each individual one you would cer
tainly find many exceptions to a rule that
you establish from a limited examination.
The girls whom you havo seen undoubtedly
take excellent care of their teeth in the
usual ways, and tbsy are naturally healthy
and the fortunate possessors of a clear com
plexion. Of course, they ascribe it, in their
ignorance, to this habit, but that's all non
sense.'" Boston rest.
