there Are No Doors or Passages In

The Japanese house consists in the
main of a post at each corner and a
roof. The roof may or may not be cov
ered with heavy clianneled purplisn
tiles. It makes little difference in the
long run whether it is or is not, for If
it is not tiled the first typhoon that
comes along removes it Into some.
body's garden anything up to a quarter
of a mile away, and If it is tiled heav
fly enough to resist the typhoon so
much the worse for the people under
neath it when the first genuine earth
quake arrives. But the odds are that it
will be burned down before either hap
pens, as the Japanese use very cheap
lamps and very fiery petroleum and
are regular children about fires. Of
course something else is done to the
four posts and the roof before they be
come a house In which births, mar
riages and deaths can take place. But
really remarkably little is necessary.
Crossbeams are naturally added to
support the weight of the roof, grooves
are made in the crossbeams and in
the platform raised a foot or two above
the ground which constitutes the floor.
A Japanese house is all on one floor
generally-in fact, one might say it is
all one floor. Between the grooves in
the floor and the grooves in the cross
beams are run shutters with paper
panels to divide the houses into what
ever number of rooms the owner may
choose, which depends on the number
of bedrooms he may require. There
are no doors or passages in a typical
Japanese house. In it every room acts
as a passage into the room beyond it,
and for the door you slide back the
panel that happens to be nearest to
you. For this sliding there are little
bronze sunk handles in the wooden
frames of the panels. The outside pa
per shutters do not come-quite to the
edge of the* platform floor; the grooves
along the eddecs are filled at night or in
severe weather with wooden shutters,
each of which is held in its place by
the one that follows it, the last one
being secured with a flimsy wooden
TWO TON BLACKFISH.
A School That Was Driven Ashore
at Cape Cod.
One day in November, several years
ago, the good people living on the
Massachusetts bay shore at the north
end of Cape Cod were wrought to the
highest pitch of excitement by the ar
rival of an Immense school of black
fish which were on the flats chasing
bait, as the small fish they feed on are
called, and gradually working inshore.
The news spread like wildfire. Vil
lage stores were hastily closed, school
boys deserted schoolrooms, and even
women flocked to the shore. The flats
along the coast make out from half to
a mile and a half practically level and
almost dry at low tide where at high
tide is four to eight feet of water. No
school of blackfish so large as this had
ever been heard of. And by good luck
the tide was ebbing.
Hastily the' boats were launched,
each taking a half dozen men and
boys, those not rowing being armed
with sticks and pieces of board. In a
quarter of an hour they were In posi
tion In half circle and to leeward of
"Close in now," came from the "com
modore," "and make all the noise you
can!" And they did, fairly churning
the water with boards and sticks. The
thousands of squid and herring on
which the blackfish were feeding as
sisted in this movement by getting in
to shoal water as far as possible so
that the black-fish could not follow
them. The result was inevitable. The
fast ebbing tide soon began to leave
the big fish in such shoal water that
it was diflicult for the larger ones to
swim. Gradually the circle of boats
drew nearer and nearer, and In two
hours 90 per cent of the entire school
was stranded on the flats. For weeks
after the villagers were engaged in
cutting up and trying out the oil. The
total catch netted some $25,000, many
of the fish weighing two tons apiece.
Dogs In China.
Dogs in China are chiefly despised,
except as house workers or for culi
ary purposes. A black dog with yel
low eyebrows is valued as a first rate
house dog, but a white one with black
eyebrows will bring luck to his owner,
while a black dog is the king of his
race. . A "lion dog"-belonging to the
small, shaggy northern breed-will
bring good fortune, while the only real
Chinese canine pet is th'es"sleeve dog,"
so called from being small enough to
lie In the capacious Celestial sleeve.
Retrievers are apparently unknown,
while greyhounds are lanky and slow.

A Scotchmnan, said to be the last of

cumstance he got the byname of .Tem

culd carry a 24 pounder cannon and
had been known to lift a cart load of
hay weighing a ton and a half upon
his back. Many a time he took up a
ackass and, carrying it on his shoul
ders, walked through the tollgate.

The Story of the Rise and Fall of a I
Sandy Bdwers was a teamster, his
wife a buxom and not uncomely Scotch
woman who took in washing and kept
a miners' boarding house. It was in
the early days of Virginia City, before it
men had grasped the full value of the
discovery, and the teamster, in com
pany with others of his kind, came
into possession of several hundred feet
on the lode at Gold liIll.
His claim became one of the bonan
zas of the region, and Sandy found
himself richer than he had ever thought I
any one could be. Neither he nor his
wife ever rose to the level of their for
tune. They remained the teamster and
the washerwomuan to the end. There
is a story that neither could read nor
write. After giving an entertainment
at the International hotel such as that

Europe had added no veneer. But the

elected to remain there, nod that
strange monument of wealth, which is
known all through Nevada and Cali

built on the sbore of 'ashoe lake.
The site was one of extraordinary
beauty, with the wall of snow capped
Sierra behind It, the sapphire sweep of

built of quarried stone and furnished
with the costliest San Francisco could

its features. The door handles were

How the Grent Composer Came to
Live In Daireuth. -
How Wagner came to make Bal
reuth his home Is a rather interesting
story. Hie had long dreamed of pos
sessIng a theater where his composi
tions could be interpreted to suit his
ideas, but had little hope- that the
dream would ever be fulfiled. When.
however, in his period of greatest de
pression and loneliness he formed the
friendship of the late king of Bavaria
It seemed suddenly as if all things
were possible to him. In 1807 his royal
protector Instructed the celebrated
architect, Gottfried Semper, to prepare
the plans for the theater, which was
to be built at Munich. Through po
litical and professional dissensions and
jealousies the town council of Mfunich
refused permission for the erection of
the theater there. In 1S71 Wagner.
visited Baireuth and, after taking
counsel with the celebrated bankers,
Messrs. Fenstel and Gross, decided
upon a site in that city. The munici
pality of the town, correctly estimating
the financial advantages which would
accrue, presented Wagner with two
plots of land, one for the theater and
the other for his own house. The lat
ter was immediately built, and in 1872
Wagner ren'oved his family from
Trubhen, near Lucerne, to the new
hoie, Wahnfried. The corner stone of
th, theater was laid on his sixtieth
birthday, May 22, 1872. It was esti
mated that the theater would cost _
300,000 thalers (about $250,000), and
this sum was very largely raised by
Wagner societies throughout the world.
It was completed in 1S7G and dedicated
with the presentation of "Der Ring des
Nibelungen" on Aug. 13 of that year.
Since then it has been the Mecca of
the lovers of Wagnerian music from
all parts of the world.

Decayed Molars cause Disturbance

"Bad sight is generally attributed to
