Murat Halstead, the great journalist
of war times, went to General William
T. Sherman's headquarters once for
the "latest news from the front." Hal
stead was armed with many fine intro
ductory letters, but decided to rely
mainly on one given him by Thomas
Ewing, Sherman's brother-in-law. He
found the general and presented
Ewing's letter. The general opened it
somewhat impatiently, read a few
lines, folded it and said:
"Ah, you come from Ewing, and you
desire to have 'all the latest news,' the
'next probable move' of our army, eh?
Well, there's a train leaving this town

Under the head of "Japanese Delica
cies" the Berlin Prometheus gives a
list of some of the queer things which
are served to citizens of the Flowery
Kingdom who "have a refined taste."
In the provinces which are so distant
from the sea that fresh fish cannot be
obtained readily, and where meat is
not abundant, snakes and lizards are
considered good food and are prepared
in many ways. Grasshoppers rank
among the real delicacies. They are
always kept in captivity without food
for a day, then bathed and decapitated
and made legless. Heads and legs
must be torn off, never cut. They are
served in various ways, but dry, with
a salad dressing, is the most popular.
An Insect of tLe bee family which lives
in the earth is also much sought.
This is served with sugar or honey
whev eaten raw, but it is also made
into a porridge. The chrysanthemum
exists not only in the poetry and art
of the Japanese, but has an important
place on the table: where it is met as
salad, candy and stew.
The Right Hand Seats.
The Philadelphia Record quoted an
observant street car conductor to the
effect that the right hand seats are al
ways filled first. He could not account
for this except on the theory that, as
most persons are right handed and ac
customed to turning to the right, It
might be simply force of habit.
"There is another probable reason
which he did not think of," says the
Record. "It Is generally believed that
the right side of a car is safer. An
old traveler once said to the writer:
'In traveling always sit In the middle
I of a car and on the right band side.
The middle is safer than the ends in
a collision, and the right side Is not
likely. to be "side swiped" by project
lng objects on trains, cars or any ve
hicles passing on the adjacent track.'
Observations on Baldheads.
"If you care to observe the bald
headed row," remarked the theater
goer, "you will find that there is great
rariety in baldheads. There are ellip
tical bald spots, circular bald spots,
elongated egg shaped bald spots, bald
spots that are almost square and bald
spots whose shape can hardly be de
scribed for the reason that they In
lude the entire circumference of the
head, with the exception perhaps of a
slight row of finishing fringe between
the head and the neck. If It wasn't for
the baldheads the theater would be a
bore before the rising of the curtain."

Golf in High Altitudes.
It Is strarge how many golfers there
are who fail to appreciate the great
effect the density of atmosphere has
on the flight of a golf ball. On a still,
misty day the ball flies about five
yards to ten yards less than it does
on a frosty day, when the air is keener
and more rarefied, and it is always
tated-whether truly or not is un
known-that in an east wind the ball
flies farther than it does when the
wind blows from the opposite and
more acceptable quarter. The writer
was fortunate, or unfortunate, enough:
to play many rounds a few years ago
on the Johannesburg links in South
Africa. These links are situated some
0,000 feet above sea level, and the .air
is wonderfully rarefied. The ball con
sequently flew the most surprising dis
tance. As proof of this the winner of
a driving competition sent a ball a
arry of 22S yards, the second player
returning the modest distance of 223
yards. Yet neither of these two play
ers could approach the driving capa
bilities of good amateur golfers.

Walking Under a Ladder.
A correspondent of the Boston

old. superstition against walking under at

ing was done after a more primitive w]
and simple fashion than it is today, til
the victim had generally to pass under sb
the ladder which stood against the gal- tO
lows for the convenience of the execu
tion, and he passed under that ladder_
with the fair certainty of being Imme
diately hanged. What the unhappy
criminal could not avoid the average
pedestrian avoids today, even at the
