HUNMOR IN HORSES. 1
Story of an Animal That Has More
Than Its Share.
Only those who are unfamiliar with
nimals doubt that they have a sense
f humor. Jimmy is a lively road
orse who has ideas of his own and
very original conceptions of what is
musing. One day the children had
erected a small tent on the lawn andi
sat within it drinking lemonade and
playing that they were banditti. Jim

tent and slowly inserted his nose
through a convenient slit, says Our
Dumb Animals. Eyes and ears fol
lowed and, his head once within at the
back of the unsuspicious revelers, Jim

kind which is half a snort.
The banditti fell back in every direc

the tent, laughed silently to himself be.
fore going back to his grass cropping.
Jimmy's favorite amusement is that of
scattering a flock of sheep. When he is
feeding with them in the pasture, he
suddnly stops eating and then dashes
mong them, sending them scudding
over the hillside. Then he stands watch
Ing them until they again settle to their
nibbling and after a short luncheon of
his owvn repeats the pleasing diversion.
Although this horse Is the gentlest crea
ture in the world, It pleases him ex
eedingly to frighten any one who has
shown timidity in his presence.
Jimmy's two mistresses harness him
without trouble or danger, but he de
lights in alarming one girl cousin who
visits at the house. Sundry fidgetings
and nervous starts of her own were
enough to show Jimmy of what man

THE CANNIBAL TREE.
A Wonderful Plant Found In the
Forests of Australia.
One of the most wonderful forest
trees in the world is the "cannibal
tree" of Australia, which grows up in
the shape of a huge pineapple and sel
doni attains a height of more than
eleven feet. It has a series of broad,
boardlike leaves, growing in a fringe
at the apex, which reminds one of a
gigantic Central American agave.
When standing erect, these broad,
thick leaves hide a curious looking ar
rangement, which appears to perform
the same functions as those of the
pistils in flowers. Naturally these
boardlike leaves, which are from ten
to twelve feet long in the smaller
specimens and from fifteen to twenty
in the larger, bang to the ground and
are strong enough to bear a man's
In old aboriginal times in the anti
podean wilds the natives worshiped
the cannibal tree under the name of
the "devil tree," the chief part of the
ceremony consisting of driving one of
their number up the leaves of the tree
to the apex. The instant the victim
would touch the so called "pistils" of
the monster the leaves would instantly
fly together like a trap, squeezing the
life out of the intruder. Early travel
ers declared that the tree held its vic
tim until every particle of flesh dis
appeared. On this account it is called
the "cannibal tree."
In a letter to the Boston Transcript
on the subject of misquotations a cor
respondent says: "I have in niy scrap

Long Distance Courtships.
Sketching one day in Burma, an
English artist noticed a man a little
listance off glaring fiercely straight
thead at him at some object he could
iot see from his position. The man
;at with the same fixed glare the whole
fternoon and was at it again next
norning. The artist had the curiosity

neant The reply was, "Oh, he is in

was their method of courtship.
The object of the man's attentive

The Thoughtful Stork.
On a tree close to a house within a
hort distance to the river or canal
here was a storks' nest with young
nes. The roof of the house caught
ire one day, and, though the fiames
lid not actually reach the tree, the
leat became scorching. So the mother
;tork flew down to the water, got into
t and drenched her breast; then, re
urning to her young, she spread the
nass of cool, wet feathers all over
:hem. This she repeated over and over
gain, flying to the river, going down
uto the water and returning, her plum
tge drenched with wet. And thus
:he nest was saved, and the tender
estlings were preserved alive until the
ire had been got under control and all
vas safe. The truth of this remarka

TIE WINE EXPERT.
HE MUST BE AS TEMPERATE AS AN
ATHLETE IN TRAINING.
Dy Sight, Smell and Taste He Tests
the Quality of Liquors and Hence
He Must Lend a Life at Once Rig
orous and Ascetic.
Many hotels and restaurants of Im
portance as well as many wholesale
and retail liquor dealing firms employ
a wine expert. It Is the duty of this
man to pass upon the quality of all
wines, brandies, whiskies and other
alcoholic beverages handled by his
house. He works with an empty stom
ach, and he makes his tests through
the three senses of sight, which tests
the spirit's color and clarity; smell,
which tests its odor, and taste, the
most important sense, which tests its
flavor. To keel) these senses at once
delicate and sharp the expert must not
use tobacco, and In the use of liquors
he must be temperate to the point of
If two glasses of champagne are set
before a clever wine expert, one a
champagne of the vintage of IS6, the
other of the vintage of 1888, he will
tell readily which Is which. There are
Indeed a half dozen vintages which he
can designate by their taste alone
without the helpful presence of the
The wine expert must also have a
profound knowledge of red wines.
Among the red wines of France he
must be able to tell those of the Gu
ronne from those of .Burgundy and of
In the white wines also he must be
learned, and he should have no diffi
culty in distinguishing the champagnes
of Sillery, of Ay, of Reims and of
Epernay and In distinguishing also
their best vintages. Among the other
French white wines he must know
those of Sauterne, Barsac, Preignac
and Bommes. And the Spanish white
wines of Xeres, the German white
wines of Johannisberg, Steinberg and
Hockheim must be like old time friends.
Whiskies and brandies are divisions
of his work that are as important as
the wines. He must tell at a glance
whether a brandy has been aged in
wood or in glass, and he must not only
separate with ease the Irish, the Scotch
and the American whiskies, but he
even must designate the districts in
which each was distilled.
Considering his knowledge the salary
of the wine expert is not great It
averages $40 a week. Occasionally It
falls as low as $25, and occasionally it
mounts to munificence.
The expert must not eat rich, heavy
foods and pastries. He must not keep
late hours. His life, in a word, must
be as temperate as that of an athlete
in training. This is in order that his
senses of sight and taste and smell
may be at their best always. Smoking
is bad for the smell; rich foods are bad
for the taste; late hours or any sort of
dissipation, even the mildest, is bad
for the health generally A6nd for all the
senses, sight in particular; hence the
rigorous and ascetic life of the wine
The wine expert works with stomach
empty. for then his taste and smell are
t their keenest Hie works on bright
ays only in a room flooded irith sun
light, for then he can best weigh a
liquor's color and lucidity. He uses
glasses of the oddest shapes-a differ
ent glass almost for every liquor-for
these help him to distinguish the most
elicate gradations of smell and color.
The brandy glass, for Instance, has a
bowl almost as big as a washbowL
The bottom of this bowl the brandy
overs in the thinnest layer. The ex
pert puts his face down close and, with
his nose inside the bowl, rolls the
brandy about, thus getting the full bou
uet of the liquor.
He must never swallow the bever
ages he tests. He holds them in his
mouth about a minute, rolling them
upon his tongue and letting them
touch his palate, and that is sufficient
for an accurate judgment. To swallow
them would not aid him, for there are
no nerves of taste in the stomach.
To swallow them would, on the con
trary, hinder him, sending him drunk
to bed each testing day.
The expert of a large and fashiona
ble New York hotel In discussing the
ther day his business said:
"What is more difficult than to de
scribe in words the taste of anything?
Eow, for Instance, would you say

"But red wines have, after all, a de
inable taste. The poor red wines are
earthy. They have a flavor of fresh
soil. The good ones taste like field
mushrooms, and the best ones taste
like truffles. But the taste of whis
kies and brandies and white wines is
not to be defined in any such concrete
way as this.

SPEEDY TICKET SELLERS.
The Elevated Rallroad Man and the
Circus Man Work Alike.
New York ticket sellers for the ele
vated roads do their work with a celer
ity equaled only by the lightning
change artist of a big circus. How do
they manage it? Peep into one of the
little ticket offices, and you will see
that the methods of the man inside
are Identical with tUose of the circus
man. There Is only one way of selling
tickets rapidly, whether at an "L" sta
tion or from the red wagon of a circus.
When you hand in your money through
the little opening, your coin or green
back goes to the ticket seller's left,
and from that side comes the ticket,
which he tears off from the long strip
with his right hand. Almost simulta
neously the same hand shoves out your
change, for he has the exact change for
your coin or bill ready, counted out
and piled up. Close to his right hand,
just inside the little window, are a lot
of nickels for changing dimes. Next to
these are nickels and dimes arranged
with 20 cents in each pile, ready for
the man with a quarter. Then there
are a lot of forty-flive cent piles and
others containing 05 cents, so he doesn't
need to stop to count out your change.
If you call for two tickets and hand in
a dollar, the ticket seller takes a nickel
from one of the ninety-five cent piles
and instantly has the change that you
require, and whenever there is a lull in
the stream of ticket buyers the man
behind the window replenishes his
piles of change, so that he is seldom
caught without just the amount you
need already counted out for you.

The Wonderful Toad Bone.
All early writers attribute wonderful
qualities to toads and frogs and the
various parts of their bodies. Pliny
believed, for Instance, that if a toad
was -brought into the midst of a mob
or other large and unruly concourse of
people "silence would instantly pre
ail." A small bone found In the
ight side of toads "of the proper ag
was also believed to have powers over
he various elements. "By throwing
his bone into a vessel of boiling
water," says Pliny, "It will Immediate
y cool it, the water refusing to boIl
gain until the bone has been removed.
To find this bone, expose the dead toad
n an ant hill. When the facts have
aten her all away except the bones,
take each bone separately and drop it
into boiling water. Thus may the
wondrous toad bone be discovered."
A traveler says: "The strangest craft
[ have ever seen were the balsas of
Lake& Titicaca in Bolivia and Peru.
These balsas are made of an aquatic
plant growing in the waters of the
lake. The principle on which they are
onstructed by the Aymaras Indins
roves their inge-nuity. A bale of hay
aturally floats in the water, and ac
ording to the quantity of dried grass
used in constructing the boat do they
ontrol the displacement or carrying
