A Neat Trick Played
on a Chicago Hide

Oilier Twi Happenings.
A neat scheme waa worked an Mr. Ma
loney, the Chic ago traveler who makes
regular trip to this city for the pur
pose of buying up the hide, yesterday
afternoon, but he promises revenge and
and it will go hard with the perpetrator
if Mr. Maloney find out who it waa.
Mr. Maloney secured a room near the
Palace meat market where be bought up
all tin hides be could lay his hands on
from the different markets and in fact
from any one who off. -red to sell. Ye-ter-day
a man walked iu with a good sited
bide tied up in a bundle under his arm
and wanted to know what Moloney
would pay for it. It was weighed aud
although it appeared very heavy ior its
size Mr. Maloney paid him tbe regular
price of so much per pound for the hide
and the fellow departed with the cash.
After he went out Maloney took a look
at the hide aud when he opened it found
a good sized bag of sand inside.
Tbe sand weighed considerable and
Maloney had paid for the sand as well as
the bide. Mr. Maloney was warm uuder
the collar and immediately commenced
to investigate tbe case but developments
are still rather misty, and tbe fellow has
evidentlv covered his tracks in good
shape. Maloney will have the man ar
rested and given the full extent of the
law if he can find out who it was.
He says he don't care so much for the
value of the money, but the fact that he
has been in the business forty years and
then to be swindled in that manner is
more than be can bear. He says be used
to get swindled years ago by people who
would sell him frozen hides filled with
bricks, but be thought he was too old at
tbe business to get caught again.
Another Foot Ball Team.
The drill boys employed about the Cal
umet mine have organized a foot ball
team arrangements have been made for a
game to take place at tbe Athletic park
next Saturday between them and the
High school team.
The drill boys have some good mater
ial in their ranks and the team is com
posed of a husky lot of boys. They have
been practicing regularly of late and
have got the game down to a finescience.
Richard Hicks, who formerly played on
the High school team, is captain of tbe
team and has been doing most of tbe
coaching for the boys. Tbe school team
will play their I ghtest team against
them and (iilbert and one or two of tbe
best players of the team will not play as
their places will be filled by tbe lighter
boys from among the substitutes. The
drill boys expect to have an easy time
defeating the school bys and think they
will put up a swift game
The high school team is trying to ar
range a game with the Micbigamme
team for Thanksgiving, unless there is so
much snow on tbe ground by that time
that it will be impossible to play. Tne
Micbigamme team is not a strictly high
school organization and has some heavy
players, but they are anxious for a game
here and they will probably be accomo
d ated .
A PleaMant Nurprlae.
Mr. Louis Wiltners was tendered a
most pleasant surprise party last Tues
day evening by a large number of bis
young lady and gentlemen friends calling
upon him at bis home on Sixth street.
The party was arranged by a few of bis
young gentlemen friends and they man
aged it very successfully. The guests in
vited number) fully fifty couples and at
tbe appointed hour they went to the
house. Mr. Joseph Wilmers was let into
the secret and had things nicely arranged
for tbe guests and also aw that Louis
did not have an inkling of tbe affair.
It took but a very few moments for
tbe guests to make themselves perfectly
at home in tbe ball in the Wilmers block
and to say that the evening was spent in
one round of pleasure is but putting it
mildly. Dancing was the principal di
version and later in the evening refresh
ments were in order.
The party broke up in the wee small
hours after having spent a delightful
An Informal Reception.
Instead of the regular class meeting of
tbe Terpsicborean club last evening Mrs
Harte arranged an informal reception
which proved one of the most delightful
social events that has taken place for
weeks. Dancing was in order from early
in tbe evening nntil 12 o'clock instead of
tbe regular hour and the program ar
ranged for last evening was therefore
somewhat longer than uaual,
I .ant evenings' meeting was the last of
tbe first term, but arrangements have
been made for a second term of lessons
which will commence early in December
and the regular meetings will be held on
Wednesday evenings instead ot Friday
as most of the meetings have been beld
this past term.

Weather Signs aud Prognostications.
So called "weather prophets" mid other
unnatural philosophers are responsible for
many amusing fancies that arc often ac
cepted as truths, even by educated people,
such as that a fioxl follows two full moons
in a month . that it is u portent of evil if
the moon changes on a Sat urday or a Sun
day; that the wind blows for a week from
the quarter in which the change, of the
moon takes place; that a "root crop"
should be planted only on the wane of the
moon, and grain when it waxes. Bat the
number of such vagaries is legion.
Doubtless quite as many believe t nut it
ts a "sign of bud luck" to see the moon
over the left shoulder as those that consid
er the mottle on a breast bone of a goose
an indication of a cold winter.
Praying for rain has no doubt bnkn in
dulged in since man first tilled the soil
scratching the earth with rude Implements
of wood and stone. Even old Lucian
jocosely tells of the man who. having cut
his grain, prayed fur dry weather, while
another Implored Jupiter Pluvius to send
rain upon his growing cabbages,
As to the alleged power of the moon to
change etmosphi rio conditions of tin oarth
Sufficient to atfect the weather, it It only
DeoeSSniy to lay that her reflected lu at
can raise the temperature but twelve mil
Uonths of a degree, about equal to t be heat
ol OandWl "-'I feet SWay, and that the at
mospheric tides caused by the moon allcct
the bnromet ric pressure only a few hun
dredths of an inch.
The clicking voice of the electric tele
graph is our best guide for atmospheric
predictions, and the United States weather
bureau is constantly Improving its meth
ods for greater accuracy and usefulness
In fine, while so called weather prophets
may sometimes make a lucky guess, like
the makers of old time farmers' almanacs,
their claims for sjiecinl acumen ure about
on a par with those of the Didian medi
cineman, working his incantations with
frenzied dancing and rattling parapher

The reason tinned foods so frequently
cause troublo when eaten, especially if
they have been kept open a few hours dur
ing tho hot weather before consumption,
is that so much of the tinned foods in tho
cheaper markets ure derived from old
ships' stores. A ship upon sailing lays
in certain stores of tinned foods. It often
happens that these are not touched on tho
voyage, and they may go another voyago
or not, but ultimately they are sold as old
stores. The tins are then cleansed, re
colored, revarnlshed and relabeled with
clean, fresh labels and resold. So again
and again quantities of tinned foods may
be resold year after year, and some of these
come upon the general market and are
sold In seaport and inland towns. lr J.

We M,l. Friends In Youth.
When old men ujr) young ones, they
afford a sad, and, in fact, rather a grew
some spectacle, like that of a death's head
moth fluttering among butterflies, but it
does not often happen. Their efforts to
rival them in ordinary transactions aro
plucky endeavors to go on with the battle of
life, not to throw up the sponge before
they are compelled. Their ardor for work
is sometimes excessive indeed in soinu
cases they are sci.ed with a desire for
gain, which, under the circumstances,
looks very like madness, but they are pri
vately conscious of a sad falling off in
promptitude Their judgment may be as
rood as ever, but their intellectual mo
tions are tardy. Those with whom t hey
were wont to consult are often no longer
with them. They have become isolated.
''Remote, unfriended, melancholy, slow,"
is a line very appropriate to their condi
tion. It seems curious that Shakespeare should
have mentioned 'troops of friends" as ac
companiments of old ago. This statement
Is only true as regards those who have the
gift of exciting personal attachment, the
longer they live the larger Is the number
of those at i ra. ted to them, but with the
vast majority of mankind, friendships are
made in youth, but afterward by no means
easily, and therefore when men come to
be old they have only their contemporaries,
a small and dwindling "troop," whom
they can call their friends. James Fayn

How Would H s, 1 1
R. A. Mar net tolls a good story at tho
expense of Bernard Shaw, the Rnglish
critic. It seems that tho latter was com
meriting upon tho limitations put upon
him in his Saturday Keview work and
complaining that ho really had no oppor
tunity to express his opinions in the l.ng
llsh press. It was at a club in !ndon
that he started iiHn a tirade against the
narrowness of the publishers of Kngland
their unwillingness to sanction his so
clallstlc notions. It was to Max Meerbohm
that ho broke out as follows:
"lam going to publish a magazine soino
of these days which shall print my opin
ions on all tho topics of tho day. I have
enough of them and to spare. On art, lit
erature, philosophy, music, the drama, so
olallsin, religion and every other subject
this magazine shall reflect my opinions. I
shall write every line of It too. The ex
periment might fall 1 1 -t inter, but It shall
at least have a trial. "
"What will you call your periodical?"
asked Max Meerbohm.
"I'll give it a concise and appropriate
title by naming it after myself," said Mr.
"How will you spell Itf" Mr. Beerbohm
