A Faithful Dog.
Many hundred years ago there lived
at Athens a dog whose faithfulness
has caused him to be roentioned in
history. and In the Grecian city his
story is often repeated.
The dog guarded one of the heathen
temples at Athens. One night a thief
stole into this building and carried off
some of the most valuable treasures.
The dog vainly barked his lo:lest to
frighten the thief and to rouse the
keepers as the man went off with the
jewels. But the faithful dog did not
mean to lose sight of the rascal, and
all through the night he followed him.
By daybreak the poor animal had be
come very weary, but still he kept the
robber in sight. The latter tried to
feed him, and as lie made friendls with
the passersby he tool: it from them in
stead. Whenever the thief stopped to
rest the dog remained near him, and
soon a report went through the coun
try of the animal's strange behavior.
The keepers of the temple, hearing
the story, went in search of the dog.
and they found him still at the heels
of the thief at a town called Cronyon.
The robber was arrested, taken back
to Athens and there punished. The
judges were so pleased with the dog's
sagacity and faithfulness that they or
dered him to be fed every day for the
rest of his life at the public expense.

PolsonoC, Effects of Weariness.
The eating of "high" game is Un
doubtedly attended v:-ith risks. and the
poisonous effects are probably due to
the toxins produced i:1 the earlier
stages of the putrefactive process. The
advantage, of coure'. of hanging game
is that the aelsh h e'ones tender and
decidedly imore digestible than when
it is quite fresh. The ripening proc
ess, however, may mean the elabora
tion of toxins.
It has beC. stated that the produc
tion of the characteristic tiavors of
game is related directly to the amount
of sulphuretted hydrogen or sulphl
alcohol set free. but it is rather re
pulsive to think that the delicate flavor
of game Is dependent upon that invari
able product of decomposition of rot
ten eggs-sulplhureted hydrogen. The
smell evolved during cooking of "high"
game is even more disgusting.
Fresh game sometimes sets up mys
terious poisonous symptoms which
have been attributed to the fact of the
game having been overhunted a nti
fatigued. Fatigue products indeed
have been separated from overhunted
game which, when Injected into a
healthy animal. have produced marked
poisonous effects. There is no doubt
that fatigue products under certain cir
cumstances are also elaborated in the
human body nud give rise to a species
of self poisou:g. characteristic symp
toms of which are headache, stupor
and gastric and intestinal pains. The
flesh of overdriven cattle may prove
poisonous from the same cause.
How Weather Works Wonders.
Not the least mysterious of all the
wonders of the earth is the extraor
dinary cleverness of Dame Nature as
a carver and designer. Her tools -art
air, rain, rivers, springs and frost.
Any one who has ever seen the mar
velous Queen Ress rock on the North
Cornish coast. that wonderful present
ment of the great Queen Elizabeth,
who Is seated so grandly upon the
sands, must have asked himself the
question as to how such a thing could
have been accomplished.
Continuous trickling of water wears
away the face of the rock. Haphaz
ard it was until at last a weird pat
tern is formed that sometimes resem
bles a man's face, sometimes an ani
mal. All over the world Nature has
placed her picture gallery and her col
lection of statuary, the biggest free
show in the world.
Another work of Nature's that very
often results in extraordinary changes
being effected is a landslip.
And landslips have arisen from the
tiniest possible causes. A little un
derground flow of water had gradually
undermined a hill or cliff until at last
the earth became like a hollow nut.
Then the soil became top heavy. The
sea beat against its foundations, and
millions of tons of earth were flung
into the sea, which proves the axiom
that the tiniest beginnings often pro
duce the mightiest ends.
To select glass with discretion it is
necessary to understand somewhat of
its manufacture and to recall the prop
erties of the chemicals of which it is
composed. These materials are chiefly
soda. pctash, lime, alumina and oxide
of lead. The quality of the glass to be
manufactured depends upon the
amount of the basic material united
with the silca or sand. The best glass
Is made with lead, which gives to it
luster, fusibility and high refractory
powers. It is often called flint glass to
distinguish it from lime glass, which Is
much cheaper and of a decidedly green
Flint glass is that which is most gen
erally used for cutting and polishing.
It may be picked out by the clear, bell
like tone which it sends forth when
struck. This test may be made without
any danger of breaking the glass if it
be held firmly in one hand while the
upper part or edge is sharply struck
with a pencil or other Instrument, the
only care requisite being to sete that the
glass does not touch any object when
It is struck, since if there be room for
it to vibrate glass will never break.

During the Anglo-Boer war a smart,
good looking married woman of about
30 years cf age actcd as a Boer spy.
She was iarrield to a Russian civil en
gireer resident at Johannesburg. and
at the outbreai: of war the "slim'
Transvaalers sent her over the border
labeled "dangerous." She established
herself at Cape Town and soon man
aged to extract information from im
pressionable English officers. A corre
spondent who met this clever woman
in Cape Town said:
"When Lord Kitchener of Khartum
arrived in Africa, she went to meet
him, for she knew that if she could get
inside his secrets she could learn all
things. She made it her business to
come casually in contact with the
Egyptian sphinx. She ran her eyes
over the tall, gaunt figure. the rugged,
ugly face. She looked into the promil
neat, all seeing eyes and knew at a
glance that she was face to face with a
magnetism stronger than her own. and
nothing would induce ner to go near
him again. 'That is the iot danger
ous man in Britain.' she said. '1 feel
as if I were within the shadow of
death when I am near him. Ile is a
man for men to conquer. No womau
can reach Lin to use hi:n. IIe would
read me like an open book in an hour,
and I believe he would shoot me as he
would shoot a Kailir if he caght me
red handed. I will try all other men,
but not that living death's head. No
wonder he conquered in Egypt. I
think he would conquer in hades.'"
Wide Trousers. Narrow Streets.

to Cuba generally comes out strong in
defense of Cuban trousers and of the
narrow streets of the Cuban capital. It
"One frequently hears Americans
ridicule what they call 'Cuban trou
sers,' thereby betraying their own crass
ignorance. For Instance, one of the
coolest materials for men to wear Is
alpaca. To make close fitting trousers
of it or of any other thin material
would prove disastrous; consequently
in all tropical countries the loose trou
sers are worn, and persons who visit
Mexico, Central and South America cr
India grow rapidly accustomed to
them. Furthermore, the shape affect
ed here so much is the height of fash
ion in France.
"Again, the statement is frequently
made that the streets of Havana should
be 'widened and made modern.' Gross
ignorance is again displayed. All trop

of the day. By stepping out on to the

The Pie Foundry.
A man who recently visited a ple
factory In Chicago thus describes it:
"The day we were there a special
run was being made on pumpkin pies,
and I looked In vain for any signs of
pumpkin rinds. One of the foremen
grinned and told me in strict confi
dence that real pumpkin was never
used in pumpkin pies at present ex
cept possibly in a few remote and very
primitive New England villages. The
substitute was a mixture of sweet po
tatoes, apples and cheap flour flavored
with a chemical extract. I tasted some
of the stuff and was satisfied he was
telling me the truth.
"Cranberry pie contains only enough
cranberries to 'make a showing.' after
the manner of the oyster in the church
fair stew. The rest Is apple jelly col
ored red and flavored. I have forgot
ten the other substitutes employed, but
these will give you a general idea of
the morality of the business.
"The average output of the foundry
was one a second, or about 30.000 pies
for a working day. The manager told
me they were shipped all over the pie
belt in specially prepared crates."
German Law of Libel.
The German law of libel is a curiosi
ty. An editor recently said in his pa
per that a certain gentleman "was an
unmannerly boor." in conseqluence of
which a libel action was brought
against the paper. The evidence given
seemed to show that the only fault
with the expression was that it was not
strong enough. The case was taken
from court to court in the usual way
until it reached the highest tribunal.
The final decision was that the editor
would have been perfectly justified If
e bad said that the plaintiff "had act
ed like an unmannerly boor." but since
e had said that the plaintiff actually
"was an un mannerly broor" he had

One night he had reached the front of
his own place and had just drawn a
long sigh of relief when the order
"Hands up:" startled him into compli

another systematically robbed him of
everything worth carrying off. The or

Before he reached the corner it
struck him that the voice of one of the

owner was a near neighbor greatly
given to practical joking. Back he
went on tiptoes, his revolver In his
right hand, and surprised the footpads
as they were dividing the spoils. He
made them lay everything on the walk,

dropped from sheer terror, and then
the robbers ran one way, while he

A Clever Canary.
A lady who had lost a canary hap
pened to be attracted by a bird that
was hopping about in Its cage in the
front window of a house In New York.
Thinking that It looked very like her
own, she knocked at the house door
and asked a few questions about it.
She was told that it had been found
one cold morning sitting on the win
dow sill and was taken In and cared
for. The lady said her bird could per
form the pretty feat of picking up a
pin and sticking it in the carpet. Be
ing allowed to test this bird. the cage
door was openea and a pin thrown on
the floor. The canary at once flew
down to It. picked it up [a its bill anld
cleverly stuck it upright in the carpet.
after which it bui'st into song, as if re
joicing at its success. The folk of the
louse, believing the lady had proved
her ownership of the bird, permitted
her, says Little Folks, to take the
songster away to her home.
