The Stake In the Game.
A party of apaches entered a Paris
cafe to have a game of billiards. The
game was carried on in great mystery
and absorbe.. the interest and at
tention of the glayers. They had an
enemy who was to be "done for," and
whoever lost the game was to "do"
him. When the game was over the
loser accepted the result without dis
cussion. Not long afterward a work
mau was stabbed fatally as he was
coming out of a dance hall. The man
who had stabbed him quickly disap
peared, and the workman was placed
in a cab and driven to an address
which he bad given. This was in a
certain street where a sister of his
was living. The man was barely able
to get out of the cab and to explain
that he had been stabbed. His case
was so serious that he was conveyed
to a hospital and died a few hours
later. The police then made an Inquiry
and learned how the murder was delib
erately decided upon and savagely
executed. The workman himself did
not know that his life was staked on
a game of billiards.-Parls Cor. Lon
Scotch Accent Too Much For Him.
The only real blot on my visit to
Glasgow, says a writer in the London
Sketch, is my total inability to speak
with a Scottish accent I rather pride
myself, as most people do, on my vocal
Imitative faculties, but I confess to
all the world here and now that I can
not imitate the Scottish accent My
Irish is beautiful; it would make all
Dublin weep. My American is quite
good; I could nearly always get any
thing that I wanted in the shops if I
had the money. Anybody can lalk
Welsh who cares to substitute "p" for
"b" and "' for "va." But the Scot
tish accent eludes me. Sometimes I
speak a little Scottish, tentatively, to
the policeman or the tram conductors
or the shopkeepers. The policemen
draw their staves, the tram conductors
stop their trams, and the shopkeepers
put up their shutters. I am not quite
sure, but I rather think that I Shall
abandon the unequal struggle.
She Was Persistent.
A huge package once reached Sir
Walter Scott from a young lady in
America for which he had to pay $25
expressage. It contained a manuscript
play and a letter from the fair author
requesting Scott' to read and correc
her work, write a prologue and an
epilogue, arrange for Its production at
Drury Lane and negotiate with a pub
lisher for the copyright. That was bad
enough, but worse was to follow. About
a fortnight later arrived another mighty
packet, charged with a similar postage.
Scott, who had not grown wiser by
experience, paid the charges and
opened the parcel. Out came a dupli
cate copy of the play and a second
letter from the authoress, stating that
as the weather had been stormy and
she feared something might have hap
pened to her former manuscript she
had thought It prudent to send him a
How Centipedes Walk.
An eminent authority has investigat
ed the peculiar wavy motion of centi
pedes and millepedes to defermine the
manner In which these animai man
age to use their superabundant pedal
extremities so gracefully and harmo
niously. It has been found that the
legs move in groups or waves, each
wave Including a definite number of
legs. The number of waves included
In the length of the body Is constant
for each species. In millepedes the
waves of each side are synchronous
In centipedes they are symnmetically
alternate, giving rise to beautifully ac
cordant movements. The difference
may be explained by suggesting that
the millepede moves like a pacing
horse, the centipede like a trotter.
A Pleasant Surprise.
A young man In. Indianapolis felt
his heart sink as he pulled from his
mail bor a letter of the wedding in
itation type. That was the fifth he
had received this season, and he had
begun to wonder whether he had any
friends left in the single state.
"Another five dollar bill busted to
ash," he mourned.
Then he opened the envelope. But it
was only the announcement of a wed
ding that had taken place the week
before. And he found In the same
cover a check for $5.
It was then that he recalled a bet
made with a friend years before. The
conditions were that the one first mar
ried should pay the other $5.-Indian

No other industry, perhaps, furnishes
so many original, peculiar and inter
esting words and phrases of a techni
cal-cum-slangy nature as the lumber
industry of Canada. Timber tracts,
says Canada, are divided into "limits"
or "births." The growing timber on a
tract is a "stand" and the contents of a
"stand" are measured in "feet"-a
"foot" being a board one foot square
by one inch thick and not a cubic foot.
To make a survey of a stand of timber
is to "cruise" it, the man who dpes the
work Is a "cruiser," and his report
thereon Is a "cruise." Trees are
"falled," and the man who "falls"
them is a "sawyer." A man who
works in a lumber camp Is known as
a "lumberjack" or "shanty man."
When going up to camp he speaks oS
going "up to the shanties." Timber
tracts that have suffered from the Ill
iffects of forest res are said to be
"brooly," which Is, of course, a cor
ruption of "brule" (burnt).
The glowworm Is not a worm, but a
species of beetle, to which the com
mon firefly or lightning bug is closely
related. The true glowworm is the
female and is without wings. Its
short legs and long body give it a
vermiform appearance, and It can
withdraw its triangular head into its
neck. The adult insect feeds but lit
tie. Indeed, there is reason to sup
pose that the adult male does not feed
at all. The larva, on the other hand,
is carnivorous and devours smaln mol
luses, either dead or alive. The light
given out by the glowworm comes
from a yellowish substance located
on the underside of the abdomen
Though this light appears to glow
steadily, It Is really Intermittent, con
sisting of fashes in quick succession,
about 100 to a minute. Besides the
ordinary light rays, Rontgen rays are
Spiders and the Star.
Spiders as an aid to astronomy are
recogized to such an extent that cer
tain species. are cultivated solely for
the fine threads they weave. No sub
stitute for the spider's thread has yet
been found for bisecting the screw of
the micrometer used for determning
the positions and motions of the stars.
Not .only because of the remarkable
ineness of the threads are they val
able, but because of their durable
qualities. The threads of certain
spiders raised for astronomical pur
poses withstand changes in tempera
ture, so that often In measuring sun
spots they are uninjured when the heat
is so great that the lenses of the mi
crometer eyepieces are cracked. These
spider lines are only one-fifth to one
seventh of a thousandth of an inch in
diameter, compared with which the
threads of the silkworm are large and
The Name of London. -
The old name for the city of London
was Lynden or Llynden, mueann "
city by the lake." An old tradition
gives us to understand that London
was founded by Brute, a descendant
of Aeneas, and that it was first called
New Troy or Troynovant. In the time
of Lud It' was surrounded by a wall
and was then known as Lud's Town,
or Caer-Lud. This latter is probably
the correct version of the origin of the
name of London If for no other rea
son because It is such an easy matter
to detect a similarity between the ex
pressons London and Lud's Town. It
is claimed by some writers that there
was a city on the present site of Lon
don n the year 1107 B. C., and it is
known that the Romans founded a cityf
there and called It Londinium in thea
year 61 A. D.

but, though she had neither, the lady
for some time took no notice uitIl
one evening, having the curiosity to
look, she was horrified to see the but

There were quite fifty of them, from
the big bandicotes to small muskrats,
all being fed on the remanse of her

country this was an amusement that
was speedily 'ended.-Times of India.
