Thrifty Harry Lauder.
There are many stories iold of the
wonderful thrift of Unrry L.auder. the
Scotch comedian. Once when Lauder
was in New York he was in a wine
buying party at the Astor. Everybody
but the Scot bought wine. When it
came his turn to buy he sighed.
"Well. boys." he said. "it's my turn
to treat. Come along with me. I've
got a 6ne bottle of old Scotch up in my
room. I brought it over with me."
On another occasion he was with a
drinking party and instead of liquor he
,took cigars, for which those who treat
ed him paid 50 cents apiece. Harry
put all but one in his pocket. He spent
:two hours smoking that one. After the
dfrinking was over the little comedian
,went to the cigar counter and said to
the man in charge, "I say, man. wed
ye mind givin' me ten cent cigars for
these fafty cent ones?" The exchange
vwas made, and Harry went to his room
.with five times as many cigars as he
had at the start.

commotion and excited outcries up- 1

up from her basement kitchen, crying
anxiously at each stair:
"Oh. what s't? What is't?"
"Oh, Kitty, look herel" cried one of
the girls from a window. "Greyfriars

Kitty dropped limply on a settee.

The Spectac!ed Bear.
The spectacled bear of Ecuador is
so called because of a patch of white
around each eye, which makes the 1
animal look as though he was peering 1
through a pair of great spectacles.
In size and general color the spec
tacled bear looks not unlike the Ameri
can black bear. But its hair is very
shaggy. At each side of the head is a
white bar, which gives the animal the:
appearance of wearing a halter. But
the most distinctive feature is the

Perhaps the most remarkable suit
ever brought is on the records of the
court of the exchequer in England. It
was filed on Oct. 3, 1725, and it sets
forth very clearly that John Everit
and Joseph Williams were highway
robbers. In its succinct legal phrases
the complaint says that the men form
ed a partnership for the purpose of
carrying on business as highwaymen.
It was mighty profitable. as was
shown by the fact that Everit sued
Williams for the equivalent of $5,000,
"being for moneys wrongfully appro
priated to defendant's private purse."
This was the amount in dispute after
the partnership had lasted only a year.
Then Ev'erit claimed that be discover
ed that his partner had not made a
fair division of the spoils. The action
vas adjudged to be a gross contempt
of court, and the plaintiff was ordered
to pay all costs. wvhile the solicitors
who served the writ were fined. One
of the solicitors. a man named
Wreathock, refused to pay the fine
and was sent to prison for six months.
Both plaintiff and defendant to the ac
tion were subsequently hanged, one at
T~yburn and the other at Maidstone.

Masks of the MarqueSans.
The Marquesans of a generation ago
ere the most completely and artisti
cally tattooed people in the Pacific, and
the practice of tattooing is carried on
among them to a certain extent today.
The really fine pieces of work, how
ever, such as the famous right leg of
the late Queen Vaekehu of Nukahiva,
are confined entirely to the very-old,
and, what with wrinkles. deformities
and the wear and tear of time, these
have lost most of their original sharp
ness of color and outline. None of the
new generation appears to have the
fortitude to endure the exquisite pain
incident to having a whole limb picked
out in a lacework of geometric design
or the face barred and circled like a
coarse spider's web. Women are rare
ly tattooed at all now, and most of
the young men are satisfied with a
broad band of solid black, not unlike a

about photography, geography, stenog

some distinguished man. His views
upon geometry and mystic trigonometry
were everywhere declared to he on
the progressive plan. His tracts on
modern sciences, - mechanical appli

were indulgently received. His writ

Little Boy Grizzly.
Enos A. Mills, writing of his ad
ventures with a pet bear known as
Little Boy Grizzly, says: . "He and
I had a few foot races, and usually. in
order to give me a better chance, we.
ran downhill. In a 200 yard dash he
usually paused three or four times and
waited for me to catch up. and I was
not a slow biped either. The grizzly,
though apparently awkward and lum
berly, is one of the most agile of beasts.
I constantly marveled at Grizzly's
lightness of touch or the deftness of
movement of his forepaws. With but
one claw touching it he could slide a
coin back and forth on the floor more
rapidly and lightly than I could. Hie
would slide an eggshell swiftly along
without breaking it. Yet by using one
paw he would without effort overturn
rocks that were heavier than himself."
Postal Clerks' Pay in Russia.
The remuneration of postal clerks in
Russia includes emoluments which do
not appear in the form of money. They
are furnished quarters, heat and light,
and in addition allowances for uni
forms as well as medical attendance
and medicine for themselves and their
families. In cities like Moscow a large
hospital is maintained for the conven
ience of postal clerks and carriers.
Their children are admitted to the
schools free of charge, which in Russia
is quite an item of expense, especially
in prepaatory schools for colleges, to
which the children of the titled and
the wealthy only are admitted. The
pay of clerks and cariers ranges from
$1'.0 to .$18 per month. They may.
moreover, receive gratuities from those
to whom they deliver mail.
