A CURIOUS ANIMAL
The Sea Cucumber Can Part with and
Replace Its Organs' h
Among the curious animals which In- b
habit the sea we may take the holo- :
thuria, or sea cucumber, so called from t!
Its resemblance to the cucumber.
When this animal Is attacked by an it
enemy it does not stand up and fight. j
but by a sudden movement it ejects its
teeth, stomach, digestive apparatus- d
and nearly all Its intestines and then
shrivels its body up to almost nothing. a
When, however, the danger is past _
the animal commences to replace the
organs which It has voluntarily parted
with, and in a short time the animal
Is as perfect as ever it was.
Dr. Johnstone kept one in water for P
a long time, and one day he forgot to a
change the water. The creature in 1
consequence ejected Its intestines and If
shriveled up, but when the water was f
changed all its organs were repro- n
duced. Although the animal is not
eaten in Europe, It is a favorite with n
the Chinese, and the fishing forms an u

Cows That Never Drink.
"The "wild cow" of Arabia, in reality t1
an antelope, the Beatrix oryx, is said t

STAGE REALISM. sI
Why Jefferson Didn't Have a Dog
Schneider in the Flesh- z
It was the privilege of the writers
years ago to attend a reception atc
which Joseph Jefferson spoke on the t
drama. His treatment of the subject E
was Interesting, the utterance ofa
man who k-new the art of which he
spoke. But the most interesting parte
of the hour came after the completion ai
of the formal address, when an oppor
tunity was given to the audience to
ask any questious they wished of Mr.'
Jefferson. Soon the familiar topic was a
introduced. the effect of the modern
elaboration and realism in stage set- V
ting. Mr. Jefferson at once rose to the'
question. He spoke somewhat rapldly.
with a quaint humor and sympathetica
charm that were irresistible. He char
acterized the modern fashion of stage t
setting as "a tribute to the weakness
of the human imagination." "I am of
ten asked." he went on. "why I do not
have a real dog Schneider. But if I did I)
none of you would be satisfied. Yott
sould go home saying. 'Well. Schel
der never looked like that dog!' You1
love Schneider because you have made
him out of a piece of your own heart.
And then." medItatIvely. "if I had a
real Schneider some one in the gallery t
would probably whistle to him at the
critical moment. and he would bark I
and spoil the play, while if be knew 1
his part perfectly and did just what!
Schneider ought to do"-pausing and
with his delightful smile--Schneider
would be the hero and not Rlip!" Then.1
with a twinkle of the eye, he summeds
up the whole matter with the quiet re- t
mark, "Realism with a tail to wag in
the wrong place Is a dangerous thing."!

Escorted Her Anyway.

Barrett were living alone In Florence
the son gave one afternoon an exhibi

drawing room. To 3r. Drowrlng was
assigned the task of meeting the
guests. Late in the afternoon. when
the room was well filled. there appeared:
at the drawing room door a woman:
whose face was familiar. Yet Mr.
Browning could not recall her name.
and he judged from her appearance
that she was not an invited guest.
There was embarrassment on both
sides for a moment. and then the wo
man said eagerly: -Oh. please. Mr.
Browning. I'm the cook. Mr. Barrett

The Rat and the Bulbs.
According to the French naturalist
De Parrille. a gardener planted one
afternoon 250 tulip bulbs on a terrace.
and next morning he noticed that the
ground had been disturbed and that
the bulbs had all been taken away.
He was confident that rats had done
I the work, and, taking a spade. he be
I gan to dig in the hope of discovering
their nest. Soon he unearthed a large
female rat, which he killed. and after
digging a few more minutes he dis
covered an underground chamber lined
with bay and leaves and connected by
a corridor with two holes, which were
evidently used as storehouses, for in
them he found the 20 tulip bulbs.
This wan remarkable, but more re
markable was the fact that they were
neatly arranged in two rows and that
not one of them had been gnawed or

made a large sum out of sales of a

This charming name proved quite an
attraction to the ladies. and the flower
became the rage of the season. It was
one of those freaks of fashion for
which there Is no accounting. At
length a botanist who found that the
plant was not an uncommon weed re
quested to know where the nursery
man got the name from. Hie elicited
the following reply: "I found this Oow

it the Rhodum sldus."
