They and Game Keepers at Neve:
Ceasing Contest of Wits.
Though private game preserves i
the United States are rapidly increas
ing in number and game brings a hig
price in the markets, it will probabl:
be some time before poachers becomi
such a serious problem as they are b
England, when poaching is a very an
cient if not honorable occupation, an(
where a constant warfare, more o:
less serious in results, is maintaine4
between thQse gentry and the game
The signs sometimes seen on th
fringe of English woods, "Beware o
mantraps and spring guns!" ma
frighten the harmless cockney out oi
a Sunday, but the professional poach
er knows that mantraps and sprin
guns are prohibited by law. He ha
to be on the watch, however, for trap
which will at least give him a bad faA
or a ducking. A fence which he i
climbing and has climbed many time
before may give way with a crash, o
a plank laid conveniently across
ditch or stream may have been sawei
almost through. A fine but strong wir
stretched across a path about eightee:
inches from the ground is a seriou
danger for the poacher, as he ma
stumble over it and get a bad fall, oi
worse still, his dog may encounteri
when running at full speed and b
cut almost in two. Without his dog
the poacher is practically harmlesi
and the most effective way of puttin
an end to poaching is to kill or injur
the faithful and. intelligent beast.
Sometimes a trap is set for the do
which is not intended to injure hii
but which will give an alarm. A load
ed gun is put in a field where hare
feed, and a number of strings faster
ed to the trigger are led in various d.
rections and secured to pegs. In dris
ing the hares the dog is almost cex
tain to encounter one of the string:
discharge the gun and put the keeper
on the alert.
When a keeper finds a numberC
snares set he will put a dead hare e
rapbit in one, scratch up the groua
and leaves to make it appear that th
animal. had struggled in a natura
manner, conceal himself nearby an
take the prowler "in the act" when h
next comes to his snares.
The usual way of collecting pheas
ants is for the poacher to provide hinr
self with a light gun, using a ver
small charge, so that the report wi
be slight, with which he kills the bird
in the trees in which they roost. Keel
ers, therefore, make wooden decoy
and place them in tree's located froz
the poacher's point of view most cot
venient and conceal themselves nea
by. When the night prowler begin
to blaze away at the decoys the keei
ers rush out and make a capture. Tb
stealing of pheasants' eggs is regard
ed in England as the most heinou
form of poaching, and eggers at
sometimes caught by means of a di
coy nest in which eggs have bee
placed. When all else has faile
poachers are occasionally bagged b
means of marked hares or rabbits
when such a marked animal is foun
in a game shop it is an easy mattert
trace it back to the man who origir
ally offered it for sale.
On more than one occasion it ha
been proved that London game dealei
were professional poachers, who opei

How Some Famous Tales Came to Be
Books play a very important role in
the journey from the cradle to the
grave-they are by no means the least
of the things that tend to make life
worth living. Indeed, it is no exag
geration to say that the love of books
is a passion that nothing but death
can quench. And this attribute was
displayed by Mark Twain, whose last
moments of consciousness were spent
in the endeavor to read one of his fa
vorite passages in his favorite book
Carlvle's "French Revolution." Anoth
er ilust:ration of "rhe ruling passion
strong in death" was afforded by an
other humorist. When .ames Russell
Lowell and all his friends knew well
that for him the silver cord of life
would soon be loosed. Dr. Oliver Wen
- dell Holmes went out to pay him a
last visit at his house at Elmwood.
The two brilliant men of letters had
always been like brothers, calling each
other by their first names. As the
doctor entered the room he said, in
his usual benignant and breezy way:
"Well, James, how are you today?'
And Lowell, book in hand, looked up
with a bright smile as he answered:
:"Wendell, I do not know how I am,
and I don't care. I am reading Scott's
Sometimes the fascination of fiction
is shown in other curious ways. For
instance, when "Dombey and Son"
was being published in serial form, the
I eagerness of the American public to
- follow the thread of the story could
not be satisfied. There were no cables
in those days, and news as well as
merchandise had to be sent by boat.
When Dickens had proceeded so far
with the interesting story as to bring
little Paul into a condition between
life and death, the ship that brought
the next number, containing the con
tinuation of the narrative, was met
as she drew up at the pier by an anx
ious crowd waiting for tidings of the
fate of little Paul. But we need not
go across the Atlantic for examples
of the intense interest that was taken
in the fate of Paul Dombey. In Eng
land coaches were intercepted on their
3way from London to provincial towns,
and the booksellers' parcels ransack
ed for the gr-een-covered monthly
number, while passengers from town
were eagerly questioned. "What about
little Paul?" One recalls, too, a story
of a book of the past. The inhabi
tants of an English village set the
church bells aringing when, having
read with breathless interest some
eight or nine volumes of Richardson's
"Clarissa Harlowe," they found that
n~ the tenth or eleventh the heroine
Qwas about to be happily married.
And not infrequently the popularity
-of some books has been so great that
the free lending libraries have been
besieged by those anxious to read them
but who could not afford to purchase
copies. Mrs. Burnett's delightful
"Little Lord Fauntleroy" was a case
in point. People almost went crazy
over it, and even stern old maids
.would unbend and dignified young la
dies would lose all sense of decorum
when they were wanting it. They
.would wait for hours outside the li
d1braries for the borrowers who were
returning the copies, and watch them
safely back, so that they could be
among the first to take them out again.
The vigilance exercised in "spotting'
their return was worthy of a better
cause, and there were often serious
thoughts of calling in the services of
the police, for it seemed sometimes
as though the clamoring claimants
would not stop at physical force if
thereby they might obtain the books
A somewhat similar state of things
occurred in many places when Hall
Caine's "Manxmam" was published.
In Edinburgh the most extraordinary
demand sprang up for it at the libra
ries. A lady on asking for the book~
in one of these was delighted when
told she could have it if willing to be
athe eighteenth in turn, for, she said,
"I've tried three libraries before and
the lowest turn I could get anywhere
is the nineteenth!"
d: There are, however, few phases of
the romance of books so interesting
-as the origins of famous works-as
will be apparent from a couple of il
s Instrations. Soon after "Treasure Ts
sland" had appeared and attracted pub
.lic attention to Robert Louise Steven
son, two gentlemen were traveling up
to London from Norfolk. One of them
was reading "Treasure Island." Pres
ently, having finished the book, he
dropped it into his traveling bag, re
marking: "Well, I think I could mysell
Iwrite a better child's story than that.'
The. other. who, by the way, was his
-brother. urged him to try. Six weeks
- afterward the former handed to the
-latter a complete tale in manuscript.
a It was "Kinga Solomon's Mines." the
first novel that made a reputation for
Mr. Rider Haggard. It was Mr. Henr:y
f.Tar::es who suggested to the late Geo.

Attached to each seat in the house
of parliament he proposes to have a
metal tube, the top being about the
size of a franc piece or shilling. Each
member of the house is to receive a
leaden ball or bullet on entering.
These balls can be easily passed into
the tube, which, carried under the
floor, leads to a receptacle immediate
ly under. the place where a member
stands when addressing the assembly.
This spot is like the traps on the
stage of a theatre. The trap is so ar
ranged that when a certain number of
balls, not less than one half the num
ber of memb,ers of a full house, have
reached their receptacle the trap is
made to descend automatically, car
rying with it the garrulous speaker or
bore, as the case may be.
No points of order have to be raised,
the displeasure of the house is mani
fest in silence. Away goes the bore,
and another speaker is called upon.
