i WHERE JAMTOR IS AN AITOCRA1
r Costs Four Cents to Enter or Leave
Apartments in Vienna After Forbidden
Hours, 10 P.
An American's home is his castle. So
long as he does nothing to the annoy
ance of his n-eighbor, repairs it to the
satisfaction of the landlord and the
> sanitary inspector, pays his water and
other taxes, doesn't allow his chimney
to catch on fire, shuts his windows
at night and does not otherwise
get into trouble with the police, he
is master in his own house.
l In Austria things are different. The
I Viennese home is more like a jail
than a castle.
Vienna is the city of flats and the
hausbesorger, or caretaker, is chief
warder. Out of doors you may do
1 ' nearly everything you shouldn't. Revelers,
overcom-e by the iced wine and
hot air of the night places of entertainment,
nearly all of which are underground
and unventilated) may
eafolir hail a r>s??<iinsr and
give him their pocketbook and address
and drop off into slumber with
the comforting certainty that they
will wake up the next morning in
their own beds.
Despite- the awesome sword which
) he carries in lieu of a truncheon, the
Viennese policeman is a genial soul.
He is the good fairy of the city. The |
iausbesorger, however, is an evil
spirit. He lives in a gloomy cavern

Kules That Puzzle Foreigner. *
Though I have lived for several
k , years in Vienna, I have never really
mastered the house regulations, says
t a writer in the St. Louis Globe-Democrat.
After 10 o'clock a chill air
- as of the tomb envelops the house.
K Later than that you may not sing,
J dance or play any musical instrument.
I was once at a party tfhen one of
the guests, not observing the late- j
ness of the hour, volunteered to sing
"Ora Pro Nobis." She had not gone
much beyond the first bar when she
~ noticed that it only wanted one minute
to 10. The speed with which she
finished the song, put on her hat and
coat, shook hands all around and was
out in the street before the hour had
, finished striking was an object lesson
from which I have not yet recovered.
At no time may one shake one's
tor rugs out of the front window, but beW
tween the hours of 6 and 8 in the
f morning one may beat them in the
V courtyard. A visitor waking up with
a start a little after 6, and wonder- .
ing whether the thunder will give
him a headache, fails to appreciate <
the privilege. For about an hour the ]

everybody is in the courtyard hang-1;

vests all her spare cash in rugs. It | ]

I do I know this last regulation, for at (
i one time I was the proud possessor of ?
a mastiff. In the first month of my \
f stay it rained on seventeen aays, ana r.

medical attendant said I was not c

i Did this regulation only eff-:ct the
laggard reveiler i snou;a nave notning
to say. The man who wastes his
time at picture palace or at an openair
cafe listening to the band till past
10 o'clock g:ts no sympathy from me.
But there are others. It is possible
even for a citizen to go to bed at 9.30
and yet suffer from this regulation.
It happened to me .
I had b-en in bed for about an hour,
when my landlady tapped on my door
and informed me that her husband
was ill. I said I was sorry and turned
over on my other side. Ten minutes
later she tapped again and ask
ed m? if I had gone for the doctor
yet. I said yes. I had just gone.
Then I dressed and went downstairs.
I awoke the hausbesorger and
gave him 4 cents to let me out. Halfway
down the street I suddenly remembered
I had forgotten to ask the
name of the doctor I was going for.
So I went back and gave the man
another 4 cents to let me in again.
I climbed six weary flights of stairs
and learned that the doctor's name
was Saurkraut, and that he lived just
arouLd the corner, l gave me nausbesor^er
i^tfther 4 vents and was in
the street again.
It takes a mathematician to follow
t!ii? story it cci.ts 4 certs to get into
Dr. Sauerkraut's house, 4 cer. to
get out again and 4 cents to obtain
reaJmiftar.ee to my *>wn place, which
comes to a quarter of a dollar.

CHIYALKY IN MODERN LIFE.
Its Spirit Belongs to All Nations and
All Stages of Their Progress.
E. J. Brailsford in London Quarterly
Although the definition has especially
in view the brave deeds of the j
civilized sons of Europe, the spirit
of chivalry has shown itself in all na- 1
tions and in all races in all stages of 1
their progress. While the Crusaders 3
were endeavoring to wrench the holy :
sepuicnre out or me nanas or xne oa- <
racen whom they despised, Saladin t
was sending his own physician to heal i
Richard Coeur de Lion, his deadly 1
enemy, of his mysterious sickness. i
There is probably no tribe of men t
on the face of the earth which has <
not some tradition of a brave and no- c
ble action. It may not be* regarded I
as at all extraordinary, and yet it 1
will be cherished and retold, and run t
like a thread of gold through the r
nemory of successive generations. In e
ftyndrnan's "Records of an Adven- 1
:urous Life," recently published, c
;here is the story of such a deed
R'hich is worth repeating. f
"Tui Levuka, the chief of the island g
)f Ovalau, was out in a big double t
;anoe, wnen a suaaen storm came uu h
ind it capsized in a part known to b
)e fested with sharks. Immediately .5
Tui Levuka and the crew were thrown t
nto the water, the natives made a cir- r
ile round their chief, joining hands c
md keeping themselves afloat with n
heir legs, while he swam about, in- f<
lide the ring so formed, quite com- a
"A shriek and a groan and down
joes one native. The two next to him ti

s taken in the same way, and again "
he circle is completed as if no one ii
vere missing, A third disappeared, ii
.nd once more silently and as it were tl
lutomatically, the narrowing circle h
s reconstituted, with Lui Levuka K
till safe in the midst. 'Another for w
lector' was never replied to and act- s!
:d upon under more grewsome cir- s<
umstances, for the men left could p
tear the swirl of the waters as sue
essive comrades disappeared below ti
h-e surface, and their blood washed k
ip around the circle as they were de- f(
oured. Finally after this hac. been
;oing on for some considerable time,
aan after man going down in turn,
th-er native canoes came up and jj
ook Tui Levuka and his much-r^ducd
band of followers on board. Only
7 out of the original number of 45 renamed."
With all these facts in view, we are
pppssarilv compelled to abandon the
efinition in the dictionaries and to _
eek for one which will recognize that ^
his noble manifestation of character ^
elongs to man as man.

BAD tfEN OF THE MOUNTAIN.
Wliy They Are Disappearing ic Kentncky.
Men of the type of May, who
was electrocuted a few days ago at
:he Eddyville penitentiary, are disappearing
from the mountains. Varying
influences are responsible for their
lisappearance. In the first place,
:he mountain country is developing in
nore ways than one, and "the old
lome ain't what it used to be." Railroads
have come into isolated localises
and schools and churches have increased
in number and usefulness. Inlustries
follow railroads and the peo)le
of the mountains are getting busy,
rhe children are devoting themselves
,o gainful occupations. Time does
lot hang as heavily on the mountainler's
hands as it once did. Ke has
ess leisure to devote to the pursuic '
if his personal enemies
Immigration also is hiving its ef- '
ect. The mountain counties are
;rowing in population s.nd the new
ilood that is being infused is not of a
:ind to be stirred to the boiling point
iy neighboring feuds and grudges.
Iany of the bad men, too, have left J
he country, for the country's good,
ealizing that the feud, business has
orne into disfavor, and that it is |3
.lore essential to have good reasons \
Dr shooting a neighbor than to have f
n alibi prepared in advance of the
Last, but not least, the mill of jusice
is working in the mountains and
le law-aibiding eiement is beginning
d assert itself: The electrocution of
Gen." May should have a deterrent 2
ifluence in x a country where shootig
.has been so common in the past
iiat some of the bad men, like May,
ave looked upon it as a pastime. S
[enceforth there will be less patience
ith citizens who have a weakness fo'r
hooting, and juries will be less
lueamish about inflicting appro- j
It will be a great day for the moun- ]

In 1876 the Red Men refused to go
upon the reservation assigned them

troops was sent against them. Custer
led the advance with the 7th Cavalry,
some 700 strong. On June 25 his
scouts discovered the Sioux encampment,
and Custer, with his accustomed
impetuosity, determined to attack
them at once. Without waiting for
the support of Gen. Terry, who was
moving up the Big Horn to attack
the red men from- the rear, Custer
detached Col. Reno with the larger
