The Foolish Railroads.
The stage fare from Hiuntsville to
Glasgow-twenty-firve miles-was $1.50.
This stage carried the mail, and it had
to go. When the roads were so mud
dy horses could not pull the stage a
double yoke of oxen took their places.
It was slow trav-eling. but they got
through. The steamboat fare from
Glasgow to St. Louis iu the early fif
ties was $7. That included stateroom
and meals, and if the boat was held
up a week or two on a sand bar the
accommodations went on without ex
tra charge. The steamboat owners
never believed the railroads could suc
cessfully compete with them. The way
they looked at it people wouldn't be
willing to travel 100 or 200 miles tied
down to one seat in a small car when
they might be enjoying the freedom of
a big and handsomely furnished boat.
"Then how are they going to find room
for an orchestra and a dance?" an old
river captain wanted to know. "No
place to eat or drink; no room to move
about; just sit still all day long on a
little wooden bench. Why, it's down
right foolishness!"-Macon Republican.
The Eye on the Red Flag.
There are many odd bits of bunting
unfolded to the breeze in New York
harbor, but the oddest of all perhaps
Is the ensign that flutters from the
staff of a little craft that rounds the
Battery sea wall promptly at noon
every day and then disappears up -the
North river. It is a triangular flag
with a flaming red background. from
whie'- stands c.ut in bold relief a great
cyulopean eye. Inside the pilothouse
is a man in blue coat and brass but
tons, who views the water front and
passing craft through a long telescope.
This is the supervisor of the harbor.
His duties are to see that the regula
tions are observed in the East river,
the upper bay and the Hudson river,
that the channels are kept free of ob
structionstnd that the city's docks
and ferries are being looked after as
they should be. As soon as he steps on
board his vessel the unique ensign Is
raised. It signifies to all nautical folk:
"I've got my eye on you. Watch out!"

"Sir, I wish to marry your daugh

"You do, eh?" exclaimed the fond

you. Do you drink?"
"No, sir. I abhor liquor."
"You do, eh? Smoke?"
"I never use tobacco in any form."
"Well, I didn't suppose you ate it.
Do you frequent the race tracks?"
"I never saw a horse race in my life,
"U-im-m-m: Play cards for money?"

A POISON EPISODE.
When a Famous Chemist Was Silenced Iii
In Court by a Judge. u1
There was a famous poisoning case u
in England iany years ago in which
tLe strom pifnt of the defense was to hi
show th.tibe accused, who was an d:
expert chemist. would not have used a P(
poison which could be so easily found ti,
after it had been taken into the bu- cl
man system. Sir Robert Christeson. b<
professor in Edinburgh university, a t0
famous expert on toxicology, whose 01
works are still standard on that sub- c(
ject, was put on the stanco prove oi
this point. When he declared that a ti
chemist would certainly use some poi- M]
son which would leave no trace. the ih
prosecuting attorney as!ked him if he aj
meant to say that there were such o1
Sir Robert replied in the affirmative. m
Whe prosecutor asked, "Nawe them!"
"'No!" shouted the judge. "I forbid I
you to answer that question!"
In spite of the protests of the prose- Al
cutor the judge would not allow the it
expert publicly to give the name of a e
poison which would leave no trace.
and the question reftined unan
Now comes the curious part of the It
story. During the next two years Sir 9
Robert received more than 4.000 let- t
ters from all parts of the world ask- it
Ing, begging, offering to buy, the name oi
of the untraceable poison alluded to in
his testimony. Many of these he kept I
as curiosities, showing them to his a
friends as evidence of the depravity of
human nature. Some of the excuses
for wanting the name of the poison
were very ingenious. One man was b
writing a novel based on a poison plot
and wanted to make use of the un- ,
traceable poison idea. He did not
want to give the name of the poison in h
his book, but just wanted to have it n
by him in case any scientific critic si
should deny the possibility of such poi- c
sons, when be could send him the
name in a private letter and quote the
"distinguished authority" from whom
t came. etc. Several persons profess- s
ed to be studying chemistry and asked y
for the information on the ground of g
professional courtesy. To all such Sir c:
Robert would send the advice to pur
sue their studies and they would soon
know as much about it as he did.
Many offered large sums of money for
the secret. usually pretending they o:
had bet still larger amounts that they
could fnd it out In a given time and h
were willing to share their profits lib- p
erally with Sir Robert.
The thing which most Impressed Sir
Robert was the number of persons all
over the world who seemed desirous t]
of possessing the secret of an agent C
that would kill, but leave no trace, and n
the amazing falsehoods to which they b
would subscribe their names in order
to obtain the information. It is said
that whatever poison Sir Robert had h
in mind at the trial he never mention- u
ed it. not even to his classes, so strong
ly was he impressed with the danger
of letting such a thing become matter'.

In a certain city. which shall be
nameless, a literary nian had asked h
his wife as she was starling down
town to buy a couple of shirts for him.
She asked him what kind, and he an- t
swered, "Size 15." C
"But I want to know"
"Oh, the color? Well. I've plenty of
white shirts. Get me something that
won't show soot. Now, don't bother
me any more, please. I'm at work."
She did not bother him any more. 5
She went away and in the afternoon 0
returned with her purchases.
"Here are your shirts. John." she t
said, laying them down before him.
"Why, they are coal black. Lucinda."
"Yes, that's the only kind that won't (
show soot. They are just what you
told me to buy. Now, don't bother ine

Danger In Eye Poultices.
Do not poultice an eye in any cir
cumstances whatever. Binding a wet
application over an eye for several
hours must damage that eye, the as
sertions of those professing to have
personal experience in this to the con- 1
trary notwithstanding. The failure to
aggravate an existing trouble by bind
ing a moist application over an inilam
ed eye, which application is supposed
to remain for an entire night, can only
be explained by the supposition that a
guardian angel has watched over that
misguided case and has displaced the
poultice before it had got in its fine
work. All oculists condemn the poul
tice absolutely, in every shape and in
every form. Tea leaves, bread and
milk, raw oysters. scraped beef, scrap
ed raw turnip or raw potato and the
medley of other similar remedies popu
larly recommended are one and all ca

Three New Hats.
31illners have other troubles besides
the frequent difficulty of collecting
bills. One milliner tells of a letter she
received frm the wife of a man who
in a bric tiie had advanced from
poverty to great w2alth. His family
was still in obscurity. but was prepar
ing to emerge.
"I want you should make a bonnet
and two hats right of." wrote the
wife, "for me and the girls, and ex
pense is no account.
"My measure is nearly twelve inches
from ear to ear over the head and
i eight under chin and six from top of
forard to back hair, and that's near
enuf for both the girls.
"I'm sandy. Jane is dark, and Lucy's
got red hair. We want lively colors,
and I want blue flowers and strings
on mine, besides some plooms.
"Jane wants hers green, and Lucy
wants pink. We don't care wlN t shapes,
but they must be becomin-and so as
they won't blow to peaces in the wind.
Nor we don't want them loud. for my
husband won't hear to such.
"Please seud within five days. and
if satisfatory bill will be paid at once."
Curly Hair Means Obstinacy.
The curly headed man uttered an ex
clamation of maze.
"Strange," he said, "I have been
drawn for juries time and again, but
I have never served. They always
challenge me. I wonder why?"
"It is your curly hair," said a law
yer. "A. curly headed man kills a jury.
He always causes it to disagree."
"That is not true. You must be
crazy," said the other.
"It is the gospel truth," the lawyer
persisted. "Curly heads are as obsti
nate as mules. They think they know
It all. They disagree with everybody.
"It is because," he hastened to add,
"their curly hair makes them so good
looking. In childhood they are spoiled
by their parents, and in maturity wo
men spoil them, falling in love with
them on every side. So they become
conceited.- They disagree with every
body. Lawyers the world over recog
nize that a' jurymen they would never
