HOW BIG GUNS DODGE NIMBLE PEN
CILS AT THE HOTELS.
▼he Hotel Visitor Is Sufo If He Hus Made
Himself Solid with tho Hotel Clerk.
Thankless Work for Enterprising News
paper Men —Many Tricks.
In attempting to avoid a man or a wom
an at a large hotel it is necessary to use v
good deal of wisdom. You do not need to
be a detective and glide through tfce lobby,
making frequent changes tn your headgear
or in yottr coats, or in pulling on or taking
•ft a false mustache. All you need to do
Lie to the bell boy.
Tip the clerk.
Locate the little side door.
And attend to one or two other small
When tbe reporter starts out on the "ho
tel beat" trying to interview celebrities he
has absolutely no guarantee that his work
Will net anything worthy of record. A
hotel "beat," lt should be understood,
means getting news at the hotels. "Beat"
la used tn the sense of route.
This is about the way it goes: Tbe re
porter stops first, let us Buy, nt tha famous
place that has the marble corridor, the re
sort of hU the politicians of the Union—the
Fifth Avenue hotel. Ro looks at the regis
ter. He nods to tho clerk, passes the topic
of the day and incidentally asks whether or
not there aro any notables on hand.
He sees the name of Charles T. Yerkes on
the blotter. He has been reading the pa
pers, and he knows consequently that Mr.
Yerkes has donated fcoO.OOO to tho Chicago
university for a telescope. That's mighty
good stuff, he thinks to himself. So he
scribbles his name on a card and scud* it up
stairs by the bell boy, requesting the privi
lege of a brief talk.
Now, notec'ne circumstance—tho reporter
is never allowed to go up stairs of his own
free will. He knows, maybe, where Mr.
Yerkes' room is. He could go directly to
it, but he would be stopped by a porter or
by a hotel detective. So he has to trust to.
the bell boy to bring an answer.
That worthy starts up stairs at a lively
clip. Tlie last the anslous reporter sees of
him is the tails of his coat as ho zips up the
marble stairs. Pivo minutes pass. He
does not return. Ah, yes, here he is. He
sings out to tbe clerk, mind you, aud not
to tbe waiting reporter, these words:
"No. 189 not in. Don't know when will be
In." Then the 1 ell boy directs his itepa
Over to the wooden bench over in tha
anteroom and sits up straight, like r i
dier, a pained expression on his hta
There is no going behind tbu wtonft If
the hoy says "He's out," he may mean
"out" in the social sense of noi "honi*."
But you can't help that. And the sly ras
cal over there on the wooden board, tie's
reading a dime novel!
Sometimes a big gun will get away from
a reporter by registering under a fa'se
name. Mr. Astor often travels incog. Not
maro than ten months ago he was un
earthed at a botel'in Kansas, where he had
been stopping under the name of one un
known to ftiine. A vuriation is to register
under the name of your gentleman's man.
It fs clever, easy aud usually effective.
Men rarely remain around the hotelsany
way, whether they are big guns or little
fishes. A man registers at a hotel, goes
to bed ii it be night, gets out in tbe
morning arid away to business. When
the reporter comes iv, say at 1 o'clock, tht
birds have usually flOVvn. To see a man's
name on the register is a long, long way
from finding hira in tbe hotel. After wait
ing five hours to see* man likely enough
that worthy will rwly :ijhati ho won't see
yon. Then you wfjl be rebuked by your"
japer for neglect of duty.
Another way of escaptog reporters at the
hotels is through th,* clerk. When Mr.
Walk-in-the-mud, of Mudville, tho recent
ly elected governor, drops down on the
New York hotel, ho registers his name all
Sn a flurry, and then, leaning over the coun
ter, says to tbe clerk in a hoarse voice:
"Remember, I am not in to any report
ers." The clerk bows, rings up trout, and
tho gentleman is shown to jtis apartment
Hall an hour later Mr. Hotel' Lounger, a
reporter for a dally newspaper, comes in.
He looks over the lint of arrivals. He sees
the name of Mr. Walk-hi-the-mud. Ho
fetches out his oard. It says:
i Mr. Hotel Lounger desires to see Mr. :
W-I-T M for abrief talk for The So-aud- :
; so. No polities. Time, say, ten minutes. :
; Interview to be on topics of day, with :
: pleasant porsonal referonce to Mr. W-I- :
; T-M's recent ouboesses.
There is a neat little flb on that card. It
Is made to appeal to the foibles and vani
ties of mankind. He hands this card tc
the clerk. The clerk scans it narrowly and
sayn: "I am sorry, but you cannot see Mr.
\V. today. He haw left strict orders that he
will not see any one."
"Oh, I don't know."
That settles ft. The estimable gentleman
may at the moment be in his room smok
ing cigars and putting his feot on the back
of a chair, but he is secure in his retreat; no
ono can get at him. He has fixed that with
Many a good man and a few bad ones
have managed to escape from hotel report
ers through the side door or through the
ladieti' door. It will happen, let us say, like
The reporter is in hot puMUit, and tht
game Is acting very Jttf. Maybe the re
porter has been pestering the guest almost
to death. He is waiting for his man in the
lobby. Every half honr he sends up his
card. Hie answer cornea down that Mr.
Guest is not iv. That is right too. The
evening is beginning to draw on apace.
Finally, puffing and blowing, in comes Mr.
Guest, fresh from business. Mr. Reporter
gobbles him at opce. Mr. Guest makes be
lieve that he is very, very, very busy, and
that he cannot possibly see Mr. Reporter
now, but If Mr- Report ol, will come this
evening, a»y st ft—yes, at 8-Jie will see to it
that Mr. Reporter is treated properly.
The newspaper man goes away in deep
iorrow. His flve hours' vigil has availed
trim naught. Prompt ly at 8, or a little be
fore, he is at the Duttys room with his card.
The answer comes back, "Mr. Guest hits
(rone to the theater." This is andther ol
the odd exits of the Wg.guna.
But let the reader, if he be sought after
by interviewers, ooiisider. Reporters have
long momm-Jir*, and, like the traditional
elephant to wfciph tobacco was given years
ago, may revenge themselves long after the
span bimeeif ban forgotten his offence. It
doesn't alwojs pay—the odd exit.—New

ANCIENT EGYPTIAN ASTRONOMY.
U-'tl'::,,' instruments Anolent .V trono.
mers Kept Tra.'k of tlio Heavens.
We find in tbe table at thoßamessoum
distinct references to the bull, the lion
aud the scorpion, und it is also clearly
indicated that at that time thoSirius rose
heliacally at the beginning of tho rise of
This word heliacally requires a little
explanation. Tho ancients, who hrvd no
telescopes and had to use their horizon
as the only scientific instrument which
they possessed, were very careful in de
termining tbe various conditions in
vrhich a star could rise. For instance, if
a star wero rising at the same time that
the sun was rising, it was said to rise
cosmically, but unless certain very obvi
ous precautions were taken the rising
stnr wonld not be seen in consequence of
the presence of daylight.
It is quite clear that if we observe a
star rising In the dinvn it will get more
and more difficult to observe the nearer
tho time of sunrise is approached. There
fore whnt tbo ancients did was to deter
mine a time before sunrise in the early
dawn at which the star could bo very
obviously and clearly seen to rise. Tho
term "bcliacttlly rising" was coined to
represent a star rising visibly in the
dawn—therefore before tbe sun. Gener
ally throughout Egypt tbe sun was sup
posed to be something like 10 dogs, be
low tho horizon when a star was stated
to rise heliacally.
We find thon that more than fi.ooo
years ago the Egyptians were perfectly
familiar with these facte, and tho differ
ence between a cosmical and heliacal
rising was perfectly clear to them. But
the table at Thobes tells us, moreover,
that tho sun's jonmey in relation to some
of the zodiacal coristeilatinns was per
fectly familiar s,oooyears ugo.
These then are some of the more
genera! statements which may bo' made
with regard to the most important points
so far discussed by those who have dealt
with Egyptian astronomy, and it may
be added that all this information has
come to ns in iujthologic guise.
The various apparent movements of
tlio hcavouly bodies which are produced
by the rotation and revolution of the
earth and the effects of, procession wero
familiar to the Egyptians, however ig
norant they may have been of the causes,
ilioy carefully studied what they saw
and attempted to put their knowledge
together in the most convenient fashion,
associating it with their strange im
agiuings and with their system of wor
They Drank to Lord How.
At one time the officers under Lord
Howe refused to drink his health at
their mess, for, though a splendid admi
ral, be Wag not popular in the navy on
account of it certain shynesa ami want
of tact with those about him. The
chaplain, who was a protego of his lord
ship, was mortified at this and deter
mined that they should drink to Lord
Howe. When called upon for a toast
one day he said, "Well, gentlemen, 1
can think of nothing better at this mo
ment than to ask you to drink the first
two words of the third psalm, for a
scriptural toast for once may be taken
from one s>f my cloth." The toast was
On referring to the Bible it was found
that the first two words of the third
psalm were "Lord How." Aftor the
glorious Ist of June the above was the
favorite toast throughout the navy, and
the chaplain triumphed more widely
than he anticipated.—London Tit-Bits.
Hoarded Tf omen.
Beardod women have existed at all
periods of tho world's history. Even
Herodotus, the "Father of History,"
gives us an acoount of one Podasnes,
"who lived above BaliearnastsuaV' a
priestess of Minerva, whose chin regular
ly budded With a large beard whent-vei
any great public calamity impended.
Bartel Garetji, a.woman of Copenhagen,
had a beard reaching to her waist.
Charles XII of Sweden had a femalo gren
adier in his army who possessed the beard
as well as the courage of a man. Mar
garet, duchess of Austria and governess
of the Netherlands, had a largo, wiry,
stiff beard, of which she was very proud.
Of late years, Albert, duke of Bavaria,
reports having had a young lady gov
erness in his household who was "the
proud possessor of a very largo black
beard." —Philadelphia Press.
An Era of Unmarried Women.
Susan B. Anthony is of the opinion
that wo are on the verge of an era of un
married women. Our civilination, she
says, is changing. Daughters cannot bo
supported at home, and there is nothint
there to busy them. The women used t»
spin and weave, make carpets and soap,
but now all that is done for them in th*
factories. Young men do not make
enough money to support their wives,
and there ia such a erase for dissipation
among them that the women would
rather go into a store for almost nothing
than to marry.—New York Sun.
Wanted a Good Cow.
A young couple wero giving up city
life and going to live on a farm, and one
of tlie most absorbing questions in the
future farmer's mind was the buying oi
his stock. He was talking cows to his
wife one evening and all the idea ahe had
to offer was, "Please, George, do get ono
cow any way that gives good buttermilk,
because it is the loveliest thing in the
world for the complexion." —Exchange
Children at Table.
It is an old fashioned notion that "chil
dren should he seen and not heard." An
occasional talk by the little folk is not
objectionable, yet at the same time they
should not monopolize conversation ot
attention. They have their place, and it
is an injustice that they should at the
family board always be silent.—Good
No More Dream Stuff.
We are to talk no more of dream staff.
These dpoamy visions are hallucinations
hypnogogiques, and the loaet we can do
is to call them bo.—-Boston Common
