AN ODD COLLECTION.
u/hv a Book Lover Buys Old Bibles
w and Hymnbook?.
?All book collectors have their
weaknesses," remarked a man who
is often seen poring over the side
walk counters of secondhand book
shops, "and mine, I confess, rons ia
the line of old Bibles -sud hymn
books. Not particularly because
they are Bi Wes and hymnbooks, ?mt
because I simply can't stand it'to
eee such books tossed about as
dusty, almost worthless secondhand
goods. Eaxept in the case of rare
old Bibles or quite ancient hymn
books, such books cost but a trifle.
Religious books, sa a rule, are al
most unsalable in secondhand shops,
and I buy a great many; only, how
ever, such as contain family names

C"My first purchase of the kind
was au Episcopal prayer book, bat
tered and torn, with the name of an
0ld friend of mine in gilt on the
cover. It gave me a shock to find
it on a secondhand counter, so I
paid thc required dime and carried
ft home. The man is dead, and his
children are living in .other cit* 28,
well to do. I have no idea how/his
prayer book became public property.
People ore queer. I offered it to a
remote relative of the former own
er, but she said she didn't care about
it. Since then I have bought in
other old family Bibles and hymn
books which belonged to people I
had known or which contain inter
esting written matter. It is pitiful
to see a Bible inscribed, To my dear
son Henry, from his devoted moth
er/ or, 'Elizabeth, from a loving fa

gift to Uncle William.' I]
c "When these books come into my
hands. I erase or tear out the in
scriptions, and if my shelf cf old
Bibles and hymnbooks ever gets
started out again as 'religious junk*
it will all be anonymous and want

has made me perhaps absurdly sen

Argument From Precedent.
Lincoln was once arguing a case
against an. opponent who tried to
convince the jury that precedent is
superior to law and that custom
makes things legal in all cases. Lin
coln's reply, given in Miss Ida Tar
bell's life of the, great war president,
was one of his many effective anal
ogies in the form of a story.
Lincoln told the jury that he
would argue the case in the same
way as his opponent and began:
"Old Squire Bagly, from Menard,
came into my office one day and
" 'Lincoln, I want your advice as
a lawyer. Has a man whaf s been
elected justice of the peace a right
to issue a marriage license V
"I told him not, whereupon the
old squire threw himself back in Iiis
.chair very indignantly and 6aid:
'"Lincoln, I thought you was a
lawyer. Now, Bob ThomaB and me
had a bet on this thing, and we
agreed to let you decide; but if this
is your opinion I don/t want it, for
I know a thunderin' sight better.
I've been a squire eight years and
have done it all the time.' "
Not His Fish That Waa Spoiled.
He dined wherever mealtime
found him and in consequence in
many differ??at restaurants. It had
become a habit to notice the dish
which most of tho other diners had
and to order it. In this particular
restaurant a fish dinner seemed to
be the proper thing. An old man
at the next table was particularly
enjoying his fish. Presently the
waiter brought the stranger his por
tion. He looked askance, sniffed
freely and remarked to the waiter:
"I say, this fish does not seem to
be quite fresh."
"Oh, yes, sir; yours is all right,"
said the waiter. "It's the other old
gent's what's off color." And he
motioned with his thumb to the
ravenous one near by.-New York

Insect Eating; Fiants.
Plants really are living 'beings, the
same sa animals, and, like the latter,
they ar? obliged to absorb nourish
ment to develop them and to remain
alive. But since they cannot, aa do
the beings of superior BJ ?ec ie a, go in
searob cf this nonrishmtm., most wi
them depend on their leaves to draw
moisture from the air and their roots
to absorb food from the earth*
8ome, however, do not content
themselves with the food obtained in
this way from tho earth and air.
They vary their diet with a little ani
mal food. The most remarkable of
these carnivorous or animal-eating
plants is the Venus' fly trap, which is
common in North Carolina. All its
leaves radiate from the root and from
a spread-out rosette. A strong vein
extends from the base to the summit,
and their . edges are furnished with
stiff, spiny hairs.
Each half of the leaf presents a
slightly concave surface, strewn with
glands. These glands distill a liquor
whioh attracts insects. The stiff
hairs on the edges are placed in such
a manner that the insect whioh hovers
near the leaf is almost certain before
long to touch one of the hairs. And,
as these are endowed with a great ir
ritability, when tb 07 are touched the
two lobes of the leaf close quickly,
one shutting against the other, and
they interlace their spiny lashes so
firmly that the prey which they have
seized cannot escape. So long as the
inseot struggles, the leaves remain
closed. As soon as it ceases to move
the lobes open lightly. The leaf se
cretes a digestive juice similar to the
gastrio juice of the human stomach,
and tho prey is slowly dissolved and
In France there is a plant found
frequently in marshy places which is
named the Rossolis. It has the same
properties as the Venus. Its leaves
are covered with thick hairs, the trans
parent glands of which resemble small
drops of dew. They close up if an in
sect touches them, but if a bit of ruin
erai substance is placed on them neith
er the leaves nor hairs make a move
ment. It is only when an inseot
touches them that they dose up.
Another plant, the darlingtonia,
feeds on inseots, but in a different
way. Its leaves form a species of urn,
which ordinarily holds some -?ter.
On the inside there is also some hon
ey, which attracts the inseots. These
unhappy animals slip at the, smooth
inoline, fall to the bottom and cannot
getup again, tor there are sharp hairs
that are directed from the top toward
the boftom to prevent them.
Little by little the plant ' absorbs
them, just as does the Venus. But
it has an advantage over the latter. It
can save its food if it does not wish to
eat at once. Its urn is a larder, in
whioh it oan heap its provisions up,
forming a bountiful reserve on whioh
it may draw when it is hungry. If
the provision is too abundant for its
consumption the dead insects give
birth to a great quantity of larvae,
which grow and develop quickly in
this leafy medium and offer for the
appetite of the greedy darlingtonia *
choice food-tender, fresh and re
Another plant is the serpentaire,
whose largo funnel-shaped flower ex
hales an insupportable deadly odor,
whinh attraots flies from a distance.
The> precipitate themselves to the
bottom of the tube of the flower whioh
secretes the sickening juice and die
there. Then the serpentaire, like the
Venus, absorbs and devours them.

"I never saw so mu oh money in all
my before, and I never saw as many
receipts and due bills and things of
that sort at any one time before," ob
served the Bohemian who was regal
ing his friends, "and it all came ?boot
in this way: I had gone out to the
races, and everything seemed to drift
my way. Riley Grannen? in the very
zenith pf his fame as a better, did not
approximate the daring and the look
which compassed this one's experienc t.
I simply played with the wise mon
who figure out the percentages from
the form sheets, and singularly I was
playing against the judgment cf the
bookmakers all the time. Horses
booked at 100 to 1, and at even longer
odds, called for my money. I was do
ing something I never did before,
playing long-shot horses, and betting
to the last penny in my pocket. I
won every time. I hauled my money
home in a furniture oar. Then a
good impulse came to me. I intended
to found a few orphan asylums, eu dov;
educational institutions in several
parts of the oountry, and do other
philanthropic work. But tho first
thing to do was to pay all my credi
tors. It would take too muoh time to
call on eaoh one of them, so 1 con
cluded that I would rent a hall, insert
an advertisement in a morning news
paper, and call a convention of my
creditors. I rented a big ball, and
called on all my creditors to meet mo.
They were there on time. The hall
was jammed. The meeting will please
come to order,' says I. 'My fellow
citizens,' says I, 'this is the proudest
moment of my lifo,' says I, and they
cheered me lustily, 'I am here to pay
my honest debts,' says I, and the gen
tleman from Missouri got the floor. I
announced that I would liko to take
my creditors up alphabetically, if
there was no objeotion, and that I
would like to pay my more recent ob
ligations first. Tho fellows who held
claims that were barred by the statute
of limitation, were inclined to object
to this, but when I told them there
was no danger of any man being shut
out they subsided, and the merry
work went on. I never saw so many
'reoeived-in-f ulla' in my life, and in a
short while I was almost oovered up
with receipts, and I was simply tick
led to death. It was a novel thing,
and my creditors seemed to be as much
tickled as I was over the situation.
Finally the last receipt had been
handed in and it was incumbent on
me, so I felt, to thank my oreditors
for their lenienoy in the past, and for
meeting in convention at my request,
and to make a few complimentary re
marks on the mutuality of the good
fortune which had fallen upon me. I
did so. I thank you again, gentle
men,' says I, 'and it now becomes my
duty to declare the convention ad
journed sine die,' and I brought the
gavel down with a good hard rap as I
said it. Suddenly I was sprawled out
into the middle of the floor. 'It's all
right,' growled my roommate, 'for you
to oall your creditors convention to
gether on my f aoe, and it was ali right
for you to use my faoe as a .counting
table, while you were paying your
creditors, but I'll be d-d if I can
stand for that "adjournment sine die"
blow.' I orawled back into bed and
went to sleep." -New Orleans Demo

More interesting and remarkable,
perhaps, than any o*h>u disclosure j
made by Dr. Dena are those relating i
to the capacity of men for drink and ?
the duration of Ufa among habituai ;
inebriates. On the latter point the <
conclusions reached are that in aeriona i
cases the duration of life is about fif
teen years-the maximum being over 40 ,
yean. In general, it is said that hard
drinking can rarely be oarried on for
more than twenty yeera, and it gener
ally brings the viotim to grief about
the age of 40. Referring to persona
who drink most heavily and frequent
ly, it is said that it takes ten or fifteen
years to bring on dementia or fnsanity,
r1 iring which time it may be estima
ted that each inebriate consumes
about 2,000 gallons of intoxioants. A
man 55 years old confessed to Dr.
Dana that Le bad been drunk twice a
day for three years, making about
2,000 intoxications; another man of
40 had been drunk weokly for 20
years, and a third, aged 43, had been
drunk a thousand times in fifteen
years. ' Two thousand drunks is set
down as the maximum limit in any or
dinary inebriate experience. The fa
vorite combination for hard drinkers
was found to be beer and whiskey, and
beer alone came well up in the soale.
Other beverages used by inebriates
included cocoa, wine, Jamaioa ginger,
tincture of soap and a well
known proprietary "bitters." A re
markable absence of alooholism was
found in wine drinkers.-Leslie's
Nose Rebuilt with Paraffine.

Maud Frazer was a pretty girl, but
for one feature, and that washer nose.
When admitted just a week ago from
her home, at 1555 Linn street that
prominent adjunct to a pretty face
was all awry. In early infancy she
became afilicted with catarrh, whioh
in its intensity caused the nasal bones
to decay, and as the neorosis develop
ed they had to be removed. Strange
to say, the outer skin was never af
fected, but as the mainstay-the
bridge and cartilage-wasted away the
nose finally collapsed like a balloon
from which the air was exhausted.
So little support did it have that at
length it only became an appendage
that would flop-from side to side as
she turned her head. It was for the
correction of this unsightly defect
that she entered the hospital, willing
to undergo any form of torture in its
When the nose had been eaten away
by a malignant disease, such as can- !
cer, surgeons long ago have found a
remedy in skin graftiug. In Miss
Frazer's case, however, it was neces
sary to blow ii up, aa it were, and to
restore it to ita natural contour. A
practical knowledge, rather than sur
gical skill was here necessary to de
vise the means and the stan physioian
in charge of the case has both. He
decided to resort to par Sin, the same
article from whioh candles are made.
Only in this case the useful product
waa sterilized and purified that it
might carry no disease germs with it.
After it had undergone this process it
was reduced to a semi-liquid form,
and kept so over a regulated lamp.
When all was ready for the operation
the girl's face was also carefully ster
ilized, and then an antitoxin syringe
was brought into requisition. Filled
with paraffin, the needle'of the syr
inge was then inserted under the skin
just where the eyebrows divide, the
paraffin slowly injected between the
skin and tissue. Slowly tho bulbous
nose began to form into its former
contour, and after the third injection
it looked like a well-developed nose,
aquiline, and without its former de
fects. With his other hand the sur
geon kneaded and shaped it until its
form was perfect and the operation
was completed. In less than 24 hours
the paraffine will have hardened to the
consistency of the oartilage that occu
pied the space before, and to all in
tents and purposes Miss Frazer will
have a shapely nose for the rest of ber
