FROM "THE AN<
BY SAMUEL TAI
At length did cross an albatross
Through the fog it came; /
As if it had been a Christian soul,
We hailed it in God's name.
It ate the food it ne'er had eat,
And round and round it flew
The ice did split with a thunder-fit;
The helmsman steered us through!
And a good south wind sprang up behind;
The albatross did follow,
And every day, for food or play,
Came to the mariner's hollo!
In mist or cloud, on mast or shroud,
It perched for vespers nine;
Whiles all the night, through fog-smoke
Glimmered the white moon-shine.
The sun now rose upon thc right
Out of the sea came he.
Still hid in mist, and 0:1 thc left '
Went down into thc sea.
And the good south wind still blew behind;
But no sweet bird did follow,
Nor any day for food or play
Came to the mariner's hollo.
Andi had done a hellish thing,
And it would work 'em woe;
For all averred I had killed the bird
That made the breeze to blow!
Ah. wretch! said they, tho bird to slay,
That made thc breeze to b'ow!

the name of Buggies himself, dangling
on a pateut leather tag just above the
steam. So you can see that he was
pretty far gone, as automobillsts go. I
think he called it the Pea Green Des
The reason I happened to mention
Buggies and his machine at all was
that he came round the other day and
asked me to take a spin in it with
him. It seemed to me as though the
account of what followed might be
interQsting. I can't hope, of course,
to stir any one up by a plain black and
white story of the* "spin" as I was
stirred up, but if I can impart to this
tale a hundredth part of what I felt
I shall be well repaid.
Understand, in the first oplace, that
I'm not au automobile man and not
used to the machines any way, and
that my heart is weak and I have a
prejudice-foolish perhaps-agalusf get
But Buggies came around and asked
me to come along with him, and, as
you may have found yourself, there's
a good deal in the idea of clattering
about the drives in one of the things,
?whether you own it or not, with every
one marking you down for having
money. If you're careful not to make
np too much like a professional chauf
feur, you know, they're bound to think
you're worth something-an automobile
is vulgarly supposed to be a sign of
lucre. They all cost pretty high, too.
I know how much Buggies's cost, for
one-he must have told me a dozen
Well, he came around and caught
me just as I was feeling particularly
perky and daring, any way. He had
on a shiuy automobile cap and an
Isinglass eyeshade and fine large oily
gloves, and he looked just like thc
pictures of chauffeurs in the comic
papers, drawn as standing at thc pris
oners' dock in court, by preference.

Buggies, TU take you rattling up the

I climbed into his machine, standing
outside my house with a crowd around
it, watching it gurgle and tremble, and
all the neighbors hiding behind their
lace curtains and wondering who my

were there. Because I've done it my

some'levers firmly and I curled up my
mustache and glanced up at Miss
Ouinnes's window -in No. 27 -and
wondered if ? she was home. There
was a terrific steamy clatter that near
ly shook my shoes off, a cloud of smoke
dashed into my eyes, and by the time
I had assured myself that my head had
not been snapped off we were in a
The rate of speed that Buggies was
going at was positively sickening. I
am willing to swear that when our big
fat wheels hit a manhole the whole
engine jumped a foot. We went around
corners on one wheel, with women fall
ing limply Into policemen's arms on the
curb, and the policemen shouting at
us until their yells sank, to a drone in
the distance. We ran over a yellow
dog and threw the animal into the air
behind us in the most talented fash
ion. It landed on the top of a brougham
-a rather stylish position for a yellow
dog. I noticed these things then, but
they didn't appeal to me as interest
ing. The most interesting thing just
then was the preservation of my life.
It was in Buggles's hand-I felt that
-and Buggies was about as careless of
it as though it was the life of a Rock
We dashed into the Park on a cum
that shot a fan of gravel off of the
near wheel and all over a belated May
party, which immediately looked to me
like a coterie of lands'ldo victims being
dug out. A mouuted policeman put
his horse at us, but he got in
the trail of our gasolene gas, from the
exhaust thing in the back, and his
horse balked. An old lady, trying to
cross the drive ahead, just escaped be
ing rolled out by such a close margin
that her silk boa was whisked into the
near fore wheel and twisted about the
spokes while she could have said knife.
Try it on an electric fan with a hand
kerchief, from behind, and you get the
same effect. Later on, Buggies gold,
he would get the boa out and put it up

Wc went up the West Drive like an
express making up time and with
about as much noise. Around the
corner I saw the Van Doutzcrs coming
in a victoria. They are one of th-i
families that I really like to bow to,
and so, abolishing as much of my fear
for my life as I could, I got ready to
take off my hat, hoping, I must con
fess, that they'd take me for the owner
of the Desperado, instead of Buggies. 1
To carry out the idea I just rested
my hand on the wheel thing that you
steer by. I bowed, but I discoveved,
to my horror, that I was bowing to a
park policeman-the Van Doutzers
must have been whisked by about
three blocks back by thc time I got
my hat off.
All at once there was a frightful :
rush of profanity from Buggies, and I
noticed that we were richotting on a
wonderful anglo up an incline covered
with tulip beds. I peeved wildly be
hind me-the road was just disappear
ing iu the distance between trees and \
the tracks of the automobile among
the flowers looked like the first dig
gings for a canal. Suddenly we dived '
into a shady grove on the summit. !
There was a tremendous, shivering jar.
and I shot head first into a prickly ,
sort of bush. The Pea Green Desnev
ado was trembling and gurgling, head
on, against a tree trunk. As for Bug
gies, he had traveled some feet further
than I had, and landed in a sort of rus
tic summer house through the window,
cn thc laps of two persons already
there. They ware very angry, both of ,
them, and vanished down tho hill j
threatening to have the law on us.
I told Buggies that I didn't blame ?
them, either-that I had been young
myself. He cot mad at that and said ,
it was all because I'd put my bally
hand on the steering gear and switched .
the machine off the road, and that
he'd "like to have been killed" in con- .
sequence. He wanted to know why
the deuce I should switch him up on .
this hill-did I like the scenery so .
much, and would I pay the fine?
What's thc usc of arguing with a fel
low like Buggies when he's mad, any- ?
way? I just kept quiet and got luto '.
the machine and sat still, while he .
climbed in and backed her up and [
turned her around and tried to start !
her. Eut she wouldn't start. He pulled
nil of the levers and things in sight. ,
but she just stood still and shook. Then ;
he got out and crawled in underneath ;
among the works, to see what was the
mattev. I sat in the waist effect, that
was all red and oily.
Presently I heard him say from thc ,
bowels of the machine, as lt were: !
"Are you touchin' anything?" I said, (
"No." Buggies said: "There's a chunk
of wood in thc chain-I'm a-goln' to ]
pull it out."
"Pull away," said I, and I heard him
give a grunt. Gee whiz! Thc Desper
ado leaped like the arrow froip the
bow; I heard a wail of horror from
Buggies, and the next thing I knew, .
he and the hill were gone, and I was
ripping across the sheepfold like the
front of a cavalry charge.
I don't remember rightly the rest
of the trip I made through the Park '.
in the Desperado; lt's more of a bad
dream than anything else. Tbc*o were
crowds that dashed up on walls, yell
ing, and mounted police that galloped
after, yelling, and horses that sat down
on carriage shafts or tried to climb
up with the coachman on the box-the
coachmen yelling, too. I pulled all
the movable bits of brasswave that I
saw, but there was no stopping her
Then I grabbed the wheel and fiddled
about trying to. get the hang of how to
steer the blooming thing-plunging for
ward all the while, mind you, like a
runaway engine. Finally, after a
couple of wild runs onto walks and one
complete circle, I got that straight, and
started on, with a splintered park
bench hanging over the prow, but
happy, for at least I could put lt to
right and left. By this time it was
As the Desperado thundered around
another curve, the lake unfolded away
down below, on my left. Suddenly I
got an Idea. I twisted the wheels, put
the machine's nose down the dusty
slope and scramhled from my seat.
Figuratively, I had washed my hands
of all works. I slid over the back of
the machine on my waistcoat, and
dropped. My lapel caught on a hook.
I was jerked in the air, sailed like n
bird for twenty feet, broke loose sud
denly, and struck the ground hard, but
happily. Down below, :n the growing
twilight, I saw the Pea Green Desper
ado swaying toward the water at light
ning speed. A splash, a muffled con
cussion-o nd a columD of water shot
Into the air.
After dinner I got on my hand
painted smoking coat that Miss Guinnes
gave me last Christmas-I always put
it on when I'm in a chastened mood
and smoked a pipe by the fire, walting
for Buggies. I knew he would come If

BEES KILLED A CHICKEN.
Insects Object to Black anil to Blue!;
G'.uiiccocltft in Particular.
Bees arc opposed to black as a color.
Whether this is because they dislike
a symbol of mourning, think black
typifies a cloud or consider it the
emblem of death is not known, bul
the fact remains that bees do nol
hesitate to display their hatred foi
things black upon the slightest pro
vocation. I. JJ. Richards, proprietor
of the Achnie Apiaries, at Littleton,
can testify to this with regret.
Richards ls a chicken fancier as well
as a bee expert. He has some of the
finest chickens in Colorado, and not
long ago made up his mind to have
more. He bought some imported
chickens from Hong Kong and paid
a fancy price for them. One great
beruffled cock cost him $S3, and was
ns black as a piece of coal, save for
one red mark on its back. Richards
proudly took the big foreigner from
Its box and showed it to his friends
with exultation. Then ho set it free
in the chicken yard. The beehives
occupy a corner of this yard, and have
never caused any trouble. But with
the advent of the black rooster the
living emblems of Industry rebelled.
Richards went back to see his new
pet half an hour later, and was amazed
to see the 3*ard in a terrible com
motion. The great chicken, which
had stalked so proudly about his new
home a few moments before, to the
wonder of the old chickens, was now
in pitiful distress. It rushed frantic
ally about the inclosure, squawking
strangely and flapping its wings in
desperation. Around it swarmed 1000
bees. Viciously they darted at the
unfortunate fowl. They struck it half
a hundred at a time.
Richards was about to rush to the
rescue of his favorite, when he realiz
ed tho folly of such an undertaking.
He stood helplessly by wMiilc the angry
little honey makers stung the black
China cock to death. The bewildered
stranger from across thc seas dashed
vainly about for a few minutes, to
the alarm of tho other chickens. It
struck out with Its wings and feet.
Turn as it would, it could not escape
the infuriated bees. At last it fell,
and the relentless winged torturers
settled upon ii, until its body was
nearly covered. Richards waited until
the bees went back to their hives.
Then he carefully wrapped the dead
cock In a sack and carried it away
for burial. Since then he has never
tried black chickens In his yard.
A Sano View oT Mad Anthony.
In Harper's, John R. Spears demon
strates that General Wayne, commonly
known as "Mad Anthony," was in real

"They called thc hero of Stony Toint
ind the Maumce Rapids 'Mad Anthony
Wayne,' " says Mr. Spears. "The title
was originated by an Irish soldier who
had been confined In thc guardhouse
at the order of the General, and it. was
taken up by the people because of thc
wild enthusiasm and determination
with which Wayne led his men when
tho supremo moment of battle came.
Biu observe that when the War of the
Revolution impended he 'ransacked his
tory' for accounts of battles that he
might learn military tactics; and he
gave his days to the training of his
QCighbors. At Stony Toint he led his
men in spite of his wound, but In pre
paring for the battle he appealed to the
pride of his men by parading them
'clean shaved and with hair well
powdered,' while the prelaid plans
included even thc slaughter of the
Jogs, that no yelp should betray the
approach of the assaulting host. When
In Virginia he charged the hosts of
Cornwallis with only H00 men to back
him; when in Ohio, where the honor
ot the Nation and the integrity of its
territory were committed to his care,

creants' gathered from the slums, and
trained them until their skill with the
musket equalled If it did not surpass

should also be remembered that his
record as a drill-master ls unequalled."
Snobs, Cads and Bounders.
A knot of men at a eiub were trying
to define the exact meaning of the
abovo terms, and this was the general
A snob is a mildly pretentious per
son, negative rather than positive,
whose antics raise a smile but rarely
excite anger. He may be extremely
well dressed or he may be a sloven;
general^- speaking, he is a bore.
A cad is a more active and militant
character, whose entrance in a club
causes some dismay, but noe a revolt.
In alluding to him ns a bore some
rather warm adjective is prefixed, part
ly because he is difficult to evade,
partly because he is apt to say or do
something for which he deserves to be
kicked, and the practical impossibility
of doing so Irks the others present. He
is very deleterious to large eaters after
dinner, since he arrests digestion and
sends thc blood to the head.
Thc bounder is what might bc called
a gorgeous cad, beside whom a snob is
rest and comfort. His briskness re
duces you to aphasia and temporary
cerebral anaemia; his laugh curdles
your blood. You cannot be charitable
to a bounder; charity stops right there.
He empties clubs and causes ruin to
corporations and vestries by the vio
lence of the passions he arouses. A
noisy, screaming, superfluous peacock
of a cod is a bounder, such as many a
captain of a liner has longed to put in
irons, for, weirdly enough, he is apt to
escape seasickness in order to harass
mankind when most helpless. - New

The delicate filaments which pro
luce the light are formed by squirting
i paste made from cellulose (wood
pulp) through dies, from which it
emerges in the form of fine threads,
tvhlch when dry are tough and flexi
ble. These thread before they are
dry are formed into the desired shape.
They are then packed in carbon
ilust and subjected to intense heat for
many hours. The cellulose is com
pletely charred, and the filament now
practically consists of charcoal. It is
then suspended in an atmosphere of
hydrocarbon vapor, in a vessel in
which a partial vacuum has been made
and a current of electricity sufficient
to bring it to incandescence is sent
through it. This decomposes the hy
drocarbon, and a carbon soot some
what resembling graphite is deposited
sn the filament. This is technically
known as "flashing." After this
treatment the filament has a metallic
lustre resembling polished steel.
The glass bulbs are blown in molds
to secure absolute uniformity, and as
they come from the glasshouse they
are perfectly smooth at the rounded
end, and have a long open neck. To
the rounded end ls fused a short
length of glass tubing opening into the
interior of the bulb. This ls subse
quently used for connecting the bulb
to the exhaust pump.
For making the connection tt ough
the glass between the carbon filament
and the wire the most satisfactory ma
terial is platinum, because it adheres
firmly to fused glass and because it
expands and contracts at the same
rates. If this were not tho case when
it. got hot through the passage of thc
current it would either expand more or
loss than the surrounding glass, and
either break it or make a space
through which air would leak. So
through the little glass stopper which
will eventually project down into tho
ueck of the bulb are fused two plati
num wires. This stopper, which has a
flange at one end, is now oalled the
mount or stem.
Next the filament is fastened to the
ends of the platinum which projects
from the stem. This is accomplished
by means of a special cement which
will stand a red heat. Over this paste
ls deposited a layer of carbon. The
paste is then dried In an oven, and
the stem, with Its attached filament,
Is fastened onto the bulb by fusing
the flange on its upper end about the
neck of the bulb,
After this joint is carefully tested
to be sure there are no leaks, the ex
haustion of the air is accomplished by
means of a mechanical air pump, the
last traces of gas or air being removed '
from the bulb by chemical means.
When the vaccum is sufficiently high
the tube through which the air has
been exhausted is sealed off by moans
of a small lamp, leaving the small
round tip seen on the spherical end
of the finished lamp. .
The lamp Is now practically com
pleted and is sent to the testing de
partment. Here it is subjected to a
series of severe tests before It is con
sidered ready for the market. If It
passes these successfully the base
(the portion by means of which It is
screwed into a bracket) is cemented
on, and the completed lamp goes to the
shipping department.-The Electrical

To disinfect your telephone trans
mitter, says The Chicago ?rlbune, get
a bottle of alcohol and a sponge.
Wash the transmitter and receiver
daily. This is the advice of the Health
department to telephone subscribers
who want to guard against the possi
bility of contagion through the use
of the instrument.
Dally baths are necessary If the
recipe is to be worth anything. The
first act after reaching your office and
opening your desk should be to wash
the transmitter. Then you may open
your mail. There is a possibility ol
contagion, it is asserted. Aside from
this, the daily wash is a sensible sani
tary precaution which can be taken
with little or no trouble and expense.
