SOME CURIOUS SPOONS.
Uses to Which They Were Put by Peo
ple a Few Centuries Ago.
We are familiar nowadays with
spoons of many shapes intended for
every variety of purpose, but some old
fashioned styles are now merely curi
'siies. There is the old fashioned
narrow spoon. for instance, which was
used for extracting marrow from
bones. It was made double, one encd
being used for smali! bones and the
other for those of larger bore.
Another example is the nulberry
spoon. This has a perforated bowi and
a spi;ked and pointed handle, says the
London Globe. The implemlents were
male for use in a day when mulber
ries were much more commonly eaten
than tury are at the present time.
With the perforated bov : a little sugar
was sprinkled on the berry. which was
then conveyed to the mouth on the
spiked end of the handle.
The introduction of tea led to the
making of a variety of new kinds of
spoots. including the necessary tea
spoon1 itself, some of which still re
main iln Ise. while others have disap
peared. At South Kensington may be
seen, for example. a curious collection
of the little scoops so well known
to our great-grandmothers as caddy
spoons. Tea caddies of the old fash
ioned kind have long been superseded.
and when the eaddy with its two lid
ded and metal lined end compartments
and the sugar bowl in the cavity be
twee: went out of use the caddy spoon
or scoop disappeared also.
Another obsolete curiosity Is the
snuff spoon, which in the days when
nearly everybody took snuff and took
it everywhere was used for conveying
the scented powder from the box to
the hInd or in some cases direct to the
nose. Candle spoons and pap spoons
also are out of date. A Llangollen
gentleman a few months ago wrote in
a Shropshire paper that he had in his
possession a silver pap spoon -vbich
had been originally given by the M\ar
quis of Exeter to a member of the
Iloggins family of Bolas. The posses
sor of this spoon remarked that it had
been given to him by his father with
the wish that it should be handed
over to the first married in er.h suc
ceeding generation. for as such it had
come to him through the intermarriage
of the two families in years gone by.
Three hundred years ago there was
one at Ilford. in Essex. which held
more than a quart. Others of more
legitimate make were such as the curi
ous combination implement with which
folk of that date were familiar: When
most people still dipped their fingers
into the general dish to help them
selves to meat more dainty diners car
ried about with them an implement
which was a combination of spoon
and fork and toothpick.
The fork was at the back of the
spoon, while the handle of the double
article was fnished off with a little
figure t'erminal, which served as han
dle for the toothpick. The terminal
figure was a very favorite form of
It is most familiar in the apostle
spoons. of which original sets fetch
such high prices and of which latter
day imitations are so abundant, but
the figures were by no m'eans confined
to the apostles. In some castes the
spoons were curiously finished with
double heads. which can hardly have
conduced. one would think, to conven
ience of handling. A curious but de
cidedly unpleasant form of ornament
gave its name to the "death's head"
spoon, which was made for com~memlo
rative purposes, a very unattractive
kind of "memento mori."
PROVED HiS ABIUITY.
A Tenderfoot's Wonderful Feat in
In the wvest they tell this story about
the east, perhaps by way of retalia
tion for some of the tall stories about
the west that they tell down east.
A young man, just graduated from
an eastern institution of learning,
went to the west and apphied at a
large ranch for a job.
"What can you do?" asked the
"Nothing much. but I'm willing to
work and can learn." replied the eager
*'Know how to ride a horse?"
"No. I never rode one in my life."
"Rather a slim chance for you to be
useful here. I'm afraid."
"What have you to do for a man if
he could ride?"
"I think I could get along at that
very well without a horse."
"Young man. I'm afraid you don't
know much about this business. I have
a large ranch here and some thou
sands of sheep. A man without a horse
would make a pretty poor show."
"Well, I'll tell you: wh'len I was at
college I was the chaunpioni sprinter'
of the institution. I believe I could
do you some good service. I have a
long dirtance record too. I wish you'd
give me a chance and let us see wvhat
I can do."
With a goo~d natured but pitying
smile the r'anchmian said all right and
bade his new mia to get somec supper,
turn in and be ready to go to work
early the next morniug.
When the employer rose next morn

THE MEEK MULE.
Our Four Legged Songster That Wears
Wings on Its Head.
As Bill. the desert evangelist, once
said. the mule is the only bird that
has a1 thing to kick with and wears its
wings on the side of its head. Bill got
reliigion after he quit driving mules or
else he quit driving mules when he got
religion. Anyway, he knew what he
was ta!king about.
The theory of evolution teaches us
that the jackass is an unexpurgated
edition of the jack rabbit, bound In
leather and complete in one volume.
Both have the same characteristic hind
leg motion. but with the difference
that the rabbit thereby propels itself.
whereas the mule propels others. The
latter end of the mule is hinged and
has a hair trigger arrangement and Is
as prone to accidental discharge as a
powder mill is to fly upward. There

cause of the omnipresence of the ar
my mule with its peculiar way of
making itself felt that the rear Is the
place of danger.
A most notable accessory of the beast
is the strident and raucous vocal at
tachment situated up freat. No means
have as yet been discovered by which
this mechanism can be lubricated, and
the melody is a sort of cross between
our neighbor's Phonograph and the
whistle of the pancake factory across
the river. It is mostly nocturnal in
its manifestation. It is a curious fact
that this apparatus is controlled from
the rear. for to uncork the music the
beast has merely to extend its caudal
appendage into a horizontal position.
It is said by certain rash individuals
who lean toward osteopathy that this
vocal exercise may be suspended by
banging the monkey wrench to the
safety value. But I do not consider
this a healthy amusement and am in
clined toward absent treatment.
Although the latter end of the beast

Legends and Customs of the Natives
of New Zealand.
Many traditions of the Maoris of
New Zealand indicate true refinement
of feeling. That of Niwareka, or Great
Delight, is one of these and represents
a gentle Maori maiden, beautiful and
modest, who, though deeply loving her
bridegroom, yet shudders at the bar
barity of his people and at his delight
in bloodshed and cruelty. Unable to
bear the sights and sounds around her,
she passes from his embrace and seeks
the shadows of another world. Only
through great suffering and sacrifice
oes her young husband, unable to bear
his solitary lot, redeem her from the
rhades. This beautiful legend Is bound
up with the origin of the custom of the
tattoo, an ordeal which the lover was
compelled to endure that he might
realize the nature of suffering.
One of the finest legends of old Mao
ri romance relates how a daughter of
the heavens condescends- to dwell with
man, but, repelled by his rudeness
and want of sympathy, ascends again
to the skies, carrying with her her
eirth born child. 11er husband is only
able to reach her and regain her love
by "climbing upward, not by earthly
tendrils, but by those which, descend
ing from the heavens, have taken root
One curious feature of the domestic
life of the New Zealand natives is that
the old women are led to believe that
the highest honor they can enjoy Is to
be permitted to do all the cooking and
prepare the food. A great deal of la
bor is thus loft to them, which they
cheerfully perform, resenting any in
terference on the . t of the younger
Maori women, who-thus have plenty of
leisure for enjoyment.-Chicago News.

THE CIRCUS CLUCK.
Tune the Band Plays During the Per

"Did you ever see a member of a
circus look at his watch during the

familiar with the circus business of
several men in a group of talkers.
None of them recalled ever having
noted this action and marveled at
the statement that a wdtch was never
"The tune of the band tells the tale,"
went on the speaker. "From thetime
the first whIstle is sounded, which is
five minutes before the performance
begins, until the last race is run on the
hippodrome track the circus folk do
not need a timepiece.
"The first whistle is followed by the
second one five minutes later, and
after that time any one connected with
the show can tell just what acts are
on, even if outside of the tent. The
band is the timepiece with a circus.
Any employee can tell what is going
on by the tune the band is playing.
The band leader knows just what is re
quired when he arranges the music.
and it is unusual for any changes
whatsoever to be made. The grand
introductory -).,geant requires a certain
kind of music. The high school horses
require a cakewalk. Acrobats want a
certain kind of music. Aerial perform
ers use another kind. This definite
routine of music day by day enables
the show people to time their actions
without watch or clock."-Indianapolis
Paris Has the Most Light Hearted
Street In the World.
From the Avenue des Champs Ely
gees to the Boulevard des Capuchins in
Paris is but a step, but there the tune
is even merrier. It is a place of noises,
blare, glare, the perfume of women,
the raucous honk-honk of automobile
horns, by day the street of costly
shops, by night the promenade in chief
of his most Satanic majesty. It is at
its best-or worst-in February, dur
ing Mi Careme, when the air is thick
with confetti and the denizens of the
boulevards are beside themselves. No
use then to sit at one of the little ta
bles on the sidewalk, thinking to sip
your bock while you enjoy the swiftly
changing panorama of the festival. In
a momeitt you would find the bock a
porridge of confetti; your hat jammed
over your ears; the chair jerked from
under you and your erstwhile happy
self fiat on your back. It is marvelous,
the penetrating quality of confetti! I
have shaken It out of my innermost
pockets; out of my shoes. I have even
found It In my socks and hobnobbing
with the francs in my purse. It flits
everywhere, and when Mi Careme Is

A Brave Briton.
When the attack was made on Sidon,
during the war with Syria, it became
necessary for the British troops to ad
vance across a long, unprotected
bridge in the face of a battery of si~x
guns, which completely commanded the
approach. The men were unwilling to
expose themselves to certain death,
when Arthur Cumming, carefully dress
ed in full uniform, stepped forward to
the middle of the bridge. It was im
mediately swept by the fire of the bat
tery. When the smoke had rolled
away, there stood Cumming intact,
carefully brushing the dust from his
boots, after which he stood erect. fixed
a single glass in his eye and looked
back at the men. This was too much,
and they captured that bridge and bat
tery with a vwgoop.

FISHES IN SLEEP.
gn Mbst Species They Experience a
Change of Color.
The way fishes sleep is a study
which few people have taken up, but
which is nevertheless very interesting.
They are very light sleepers and fre
quently assume singular positions, but
:he most remarkable thing is the
change of color which the majority
of them undergo while asleep. Usual
ly their spots ard stripes become dark
er and more distinct when they have
successfully sought temporary ob
Sometimes the pattern of their col
oring is entirely changed. The ord.
nary porgy, for instance, presents in
the daytime beautifully iridescent hues
playing over its silvery sides. but at
night, on falling asleep, it takes on a
dull bronze tint, and six conspicuous
black bands make their appearance
on its sides.
If it is suddenly awakened by the
turning up of the gas in the aquarium
it immediately resumes the silvery
color that it shows by daylight.
Naturalists ascribe these changes to
the principle of "protective coloration"
and point out that the appearance of
black bands and the deepening of the
spots serve to conceal the fish from
their enemies when lying amid the
seaweeds.-Buffalo Timo s.
