Stage Thunder and Lightning.
The reason why the mechanism for
making the noises that give realism to
a play a-e never seen by the audience
is because th'e illusion would be com
pletely destroyed if its operations were
exposed to view, explains Frank Fyles
in The Ladies' Home Journal.
The noise of the waiter falling down
stairs with a tray of dishes, for In
stance, is simulated by dropping as of
ien as necessary a basket filled with
bits of broken china. and a cylinder of
silk, turned with a crank, rawing the
cloth over wooden tianges, gives a per
fect rain and wind storm. A lightning
accompanimet is made by touching
an ordinary tile to a bit of carbon, both
on live wires, and thunder by rolling
tenpin balls in a long. narrow, wooden
The rumble of the wheels of a car
riage is imitated with a vehicle like a
miniature freight car run on a wooden
track, and a striking of wood or metal
on hard or soft surfaces serves to con
vince an audience of the approach or
departure of a horse. When there is
war, a single shot or two is usually
the real thing, but a rifle volley effect
is obtained by rapidly beating a dried
calfskin with rattans, while heavy
strokes on the bass drum will convey
the idea of cannonading.
If this mechanism were seen in op
eration by an audience, it would make
the whole performance seem ridiculous.
Longevity of Whales.
Some light was thrown upon the sub
ject of the vitality of whales by finding
one of these animals in Bering sea in
1890 with a "toggle" harpoon head in
Its body bearing the mark of the Amer
ican whaler Montezuma. That vessel
was engaged in whaling In Bering sea
about ten years, but not later than
IS54. She was afterward sold to the
government and was sunk in Charles
ton harbor during the civil war to serve
as an obstruction. Hence It is estimat
ed the whale must have carried the
harpoon not less than 36 years.
In connection with this fact William
H. Dall gives an account In The Na
tional Geographic Magazine of a dis
cussion with Captain E. P. Herendeen
of the United States National museum
of cases of whales that have been sup'
posed to have made their way from
Greenland waters to Bering strait and
to have been Identified by the harpoons
they carried. While it is very likely
that the whale really makes the pas
sage an uncertainty must always be
allowed, for ships were often chang
ing ownership, and their tools were
sold and put on board of other vessels,
and harpoon irons were sometimes giv
en or traded to Eskimos. It therefore
becomes possible that the animal was
struck with a secondhand iron.-Popu
Elephant and Train.
A big and ugly elephant which had
long been an object of pursuit to the
sportsmen of the Straits Settlements
one day wandered on to the railway
line and tried conclusions with the en
gine of a goods train, charging it re
peatedly and keeping up the contest for
nearly an hour. The engine was re
versed in the hope that the beast would
allow the train to proceed, but as soon
as there was any attempt to renew the
journey the elephant returned to the
encounter and resumed its obstructive
tactics. The driver was afraid to
charge the brute, lest the train should
be thrown off the rails, and the contest
might have gone on much longer had
not the elephant backed into the en
gine and, setting its fore feet firmly
between the rails, endeavored to shove
the train backward with its hind quar
The driver took advantage of the op
portunity and put on steam, gradually
forcing the beast off the line. In this
maneuver one of the wheels of the en
gine went over the hind legs of the
animal, which was put out of its mis
eryby the guard of a following passen

An Ofd Coincidence.
"Late one night some years ago in a
western town," said an old telegraph
operator, "I received a message which
read, 'If you wish to see your brother
alive, you will have to come immedi
ately.' The message came from San
francisco and was addressed to an old
man who lived across the street from
Jhe station, so I put on my hat and
went over and delivered it, seeing that
it was important that he should have it
"The old mgn caught the train that
left'at midnight, and wlj:e he was buy
ing his ticket he told me that the mes
sage referred _ to his brother who had
left home 20 years before and from
whom he had heard nothing during all
"The next night a party called and
asked if there were any messages for
him, giving the same name as the old
man'who had left the night before. He
must have noticed that I looked at him
rather blankly, for he went on to ex
plain that he had a brother in Califor
nia who was sick and that he was anx
ious to hear from him.
"Well, it turned out that the mes
sage that I had received the night be
fore was intended for him. He was a
stranger in the town and chanced to
bear the same name as the old man
whom I had sent on a wild goose chase
across the continent. Fortunately for
me I was transferred to another town
before the old man got back. That !s
all there is to the story except that it is
true."-Detroit Free Press.
sixteenth Century Apples.
Apples be so divers of form and sub
stance that it were infinite to describe
them all. Some consist more of aire
then water, as sour puffs called Mala
pulmonea; others more of water then
wind, as sour Castaras and Pome wa
ters. To b'e short, all apples may be
sorted into three kinds, sweet, soure
and unsavory. Sweet apples ease the
cough, quench thirst, cure melancholly,
comfort the heart and head, especially
if they be fragrant and odoriferous,
and also give a laudable nourishment.
Soure apples hinder spitting, straiten
the brest, gripe and hurt the stomach,
encrease phlegm and weaken memory.
Sweet apples are to be eaten at the
beginning of meat, but soure and tart
apples at the latter end. All apples are
worst raw, and best baked or preserv
Philip of Macedonia and Alexander,
his son, from whome perhaps a curious
and skilful herald may derive our Lan
cashire men, were called Philomeli ap
ple lovers because they were never
without apples in their pockets. Yea,
all Macedonians, his countrymen, did
so love them that having neer Babylon
surprised a fruiterer's boy they strived
for it that many were drowned.-Dr.
Thomas Moffett in 1575.
Plants That Intoxicate.
Bumblebees, butterflies and beetles
are habitual drunkards. In some of
the southern states insects alight on
certain plants, drink heartily from the
blossoms and fall to the ground stu
pefied. After awhile they rise and fly
around, just as drunken men would do
if they had the power of flying. Their
antics are especially amusing unless
one does not know what is the trouble.
In this case the suspicion that the In
sect world has gone crazy is upper
A scientist who had observed the
drinking and its results collected a
teaspoonful of the pollen to see if it
would affect a man the same way. He
swallowed it and in a few minutes
found his pulse beating faster and a
rise of temperature. Then he distilled
some of the blossoms and gave himself
a hypodermic injection in the arm. He
became decidedly dizzy as a result. By
further experiments he found an oil de
rived from these, plants which affects
human beings and animals allke.-New

At that moment an old offender was
brought in who happened to catch
sight of his lordship's face, which he
had good reason to remember.
"You here, my lord!" he exclaimed,
with unfeigned astonishment. "Well,
this beats cockfighting."
The rogue's unsolicited corroboration
of the judge's declaration saved the
situation, and his lordship was allowed
to depart in peace.

who, however, was not noble, having
no aristocratic "von" prefixed to his

unconscious that one of their number
had been so badly treated. When, how

the absence of their comrade was Im

ed the fact to the host, who said in a
loud voice, "Ahi, you see, we are going
to be entre nous tonight, a really se

"Then we must not disturb you,"
said the senior officer present, rising
from his chair, and one after another

A Trick That Won.
A few weeks ago a pretty little Pa
risian actress was appearing at a the
ater In Geneva. On the last night of
the play a tall, well dressed man sent
in his card and asked permission to
thank her personally for the pleasure
that her performances had given to
him, iHe entertained her at supper
and asked permission to see her off at
the station on the following day. He
arrived with his groom, who was car
rying a tremendous bouquet of flowers.
He told her that he had telegraphed
to his brother, who was in Paris and
who had influence both with the press
and the theatrical managers and that
he would meet her on her arrival in
Paris. To the astonishment of the
actress all this turned out to be true.
and she found a magnificent carriage
at the station. A fine dinner followed.
The girl was dumb with astonish
ment. Her host told her that it was
all for the sake of his brother, whom
he loved dearly, and he spoke pathet
ically of the beautiful bouquet that
she carried and wh!ch was made up of
flowers culled in the garden of the old
homestead. She offered him the bou
quet instantly, and he accepted it with
a thousand thanks.
Now she has found out why she was
treated so well. She had been the

His New Stove.
Old Hi Drew, who lives in a village
not 40 miles away, came into town last
week on the sly to buy a birthday gift

and struggled in a valiant way through
the crowds, finally being washed

soon purchased for $21 an article that
was guaranteed to cook anything and
everything all at one time. le had it

cunning strategy succeeded In getting

out and killed a young sucking pig and

Quick Arrow Shooting.
The Maya Indians have acquired ex
traordinary dexterity with the bow and
arrow, which, with the spear, is their
only weapon, though the boys before
they are strong enough to draw the
bow often use a sling made from a
strip of rawhide, with which they kill
squirrels and small birds. The bows
are about five feet long, made of a
thin, tough strip of cuhoon palm, well
seasoned. The arrows are usually car
ried in a tiger skin quiver and can be
used with marvelous rapidity, as the
following incident will show:
A chief of the Lacondones of my ac
quaintance named Canek had been on
bad terms with his father-In-law for,

in an anana tree gathering the apples.
He at once fired an arrow at the man,
striking him through the chest and
while the body was falling placed an
other arrow in the neck. Fortunately
for himself he managed to reach the
nearest Spanish settlement before any
of the murdered man's relatives could
overtake him.-Chambers' Journal.
