When Waking Up.
_ Here 43 a blt of information it will
' pay yon to keep ready for reference,
though you will perhaps turn up your
nose at lt. at the first reading: "How
.to wake np and wake up fully, and
quickly. Most people prefer not to
wake up In the morning-that ls, they
think of the pleasure there would be
In jnst fire minutes' more of sleep If
only, that alarm clock bad not sound
ed its warning. Of course you hove
to get up, and if there Is really any
thing that will make the job easier and
more pleasant you will want to know
about it. Doctors have long ago agreed
that dullness on first awakening in
the morning is due to sluggish circu
lation of the Blood in the brain. This
can be quickly overcome by massaging
the neck in tbe neighborhood of the
jugular vein, thus stirring the blood
? to life and action. . Rub your neck
well on both sides and drowsiness will
leave you. Try it."-New York Times.
Happy Either Way.
The old Duke of Norfolk, who was a
very shabby dresser, mei: a. privileged
friend in Bond street, London. Said
the privileged friend, a military* man
. of the premier duke's own age: "Why,
v. dake, whafs come to your clothes?
You look as If you had raked over
your rag bag to find them!" The duke
replied, with a shrug: "What does it
matter what I wear he^e? No one
knows mer' A few months later the
same friend, himself always ? well
dressed man, met the duke again, pot
tering about in the- neighborhopd of
Arundel, the delightful Snssex village
under a hill crowned by the castle
from whose' name the eld .-st son of a
Duke of Norfolk always -takes his
"courtesy" title-Earl of Arundel.
'iWhy, duke," said his friend again.
"what's the matter with your clothes?"
.The duke shrugged his shoulders
again. "What does it matter what I
wear here? Every one knows mer*
German Lotteries. .
In an article on the lotteries the Ber
liner Tageblatt says there are tbrfee
. ways by which wealth ls acquired-by
work, which ls long and tedious; by
dishonesty, which is a precarious pro
ceeding, and by gambling. The num
ber of persons who prefer the last
named method, says the writer; is
large in the German realm, for there
the great lotteries thrive test There
are seven of these" under the manage
ment of the government and they dis
tribute $160,000,000 in prizes. The anx
iety to secure a part of this amount
has destroyed the happiness of thou
sands of households and has diverted
thousands - of good men from h?hest
Industry and thrift to Idleness and
poverty. In the seven, lotteries there
are-about 22,000 winners a year, but
of (hese only abont 650 receive prizes
of more thru LOOO marks each.
How tho Culprit Was Detected.
Of. a certain Harrow tnastec,. whom
' Mr; ToUeinache in hi3 reminiscences
refers to as Mr. Y. the following story
ls told. Dr. Vaughan wa3 roaster of
Harrow av the time:
"jir. Y.-I am sorry. Dr. Vaughan,
to have to report to you two of your
'monitors for drinking. Dr. V.-This is
a very serious charge. When and
where did It happen? Mr. Y.-This
afternoon In a public house In Pinner.
Dr. V.-Did you catch them flagrante
delicto? Mr. Y.-No, Dr. Vaughan, I
/ was 4n my study. Dr. V.-But surely
you'cannot possibly-'have seen from
your study to Pinner? Mr. Y.-I have
a strong telescope, Dr. Vaughan. DP.
"V.-But how can you tell that it was
not water they were drinking? Mr. Y.
-It was gin and water. I noticed a
sediment of sugar at the bottom of

"Do you ever think. George, dear,"
said she. and her voice was soft and
low, as befitted the perfect beauty of
the night, "do you ever think how
closely true happiness Is allied witb
"I don't believe I ever do." admitted
' George dear, "but I will, if you like."
"Yes," she went on, gazing up into
his face, and her Hps were very close
to his, "when one Is truly and wholly
happy, George, dear, there is but little
to divide a smile and a tear."
"Weih that's a fact,"- assented
George dear. "But I never thought of
it before. After all, there's nothing
but the nose."-London Answers.
A Ono Sided Complaint.
"This is the seventeenth time I Ve

. a magistrate, looking at a prisoner
"Yes. For eight years now I've seen
you sitting in the chair, but I've never
thought of complaining about it!" re

"what's the best way to find out what

"Marry her," . replied Peckham

Sierra Leone-known to lanie as "the
white man's grave"-viewed from the
deck of an incoming steamer presents ?,
an appearance distinctly attractive. As
.to climate, the sobriquet "white man's
grave" is sufficiently instructive.1- Suf

regimental orders ran thus: "Funeral
parade at 6*50 a. m. tomorrow," and it
was seldom indeed that the parade
was dismissed for lack of a victim to
the pestiferous climatic conditions.

What li It, a Lobster?
That the .methods of public school
instruction as applied in one city at;
least do not always meet the approba
tion of the parents' of the pupils was
evidenced when a Jerman man whose
bristly blond hair was standing per
fectly erect with anger strode into a
Baltimore school one day and, ap
proaching Ihe principal, demanded:
"Vot ls it, a lobster?" '
The principal explained in his suav

Saved His Rupees. -
During a great flood at Haidarabad a
native banker, overtaken by the sud
den rush of water, made his way on
to a mound, where he was quickly iso
lated. The water rose, and the bank
er's leg3 were covered to his knees:
"Fifty rupees (about ?3 7B;), 50 rupees,"
he shouted, **'to any one who will save
me!" When the water reached his
shoulder he was shouting, "One thou
sand rupees!" When enveloped to his
neck, with death starinp him in the
face, he yelled);'*Help, help! All that I
have will I give to .any one to save
me!" Shortly after the water began
to recede. When once more. he was
covered only to his knee? an offer of
rescue came. But the banker, pluck
ing up his courage, cried: "Keep off!
Keep off! I will not give a rupee!" j
and1 succeeded in making his escape
free of charge.-St. James' Gazette. ?

The Devilfish In Aotion.
A naturalist who observed devil
fishes in action says that be thought
no more, diabolical creature could be
Imagined. They resembled enormous
bats and' in following one another
around in a circle raised the outer tip
of one of the long wiuglike fins blgb
out of the water In a graceful curve,
the other being deeply submerged.
They might be seen now gliding down
with a flying motion of the wings,
sweeping, gyrating upward with a
twisting vertical motion marvelous in
its perfect grace; now they flashed
white, again black, sojhat one would
say they were rolling over and over,
turning somersaults. While swimming
along tlie two great arms or feelers of
the devilfish are whirled about in
constant motion, like the tentacles- of
a squid. Wfc.eu these tentacles come
in contact with anything they close
upon it. It Is generally believed that
this clasping, although at times doing
considerable harm to fishermen and
their boats, is largely automatic and
that, upon the whole, the devilfish is
timid rather than a fighter.
