It is now known that old castaway
cigar stumps are used in the manufact
ure of cigarettes. Boys are employed
to gather them from hotels, bar-rooms,
sidewalks from wherever, they are
thrown. Collectors buy them of tho
boys and send them to the manufacto
ries by the barrel. No matter how dis
gusting tho spot whence they are pick
edwhether from the spittoon with its
dangerou saliva, or the gutter with its
tilth the foul refuse finds its way into
the mouth and nostrils of the cigarette
smoker. Many a smoker throws away the
stump of his cigar because he does not
like the llavor of it. He does not know
why the flavor is ipleasant to him,
but it is caused by nicotine the active
-principle- of tobacco and a violent pois
on, 'ibis accumulates in the base of
the cigar with every draftof the smoke,
and the uiau, noticing the unpleasant
llavor, throws the stump nway. This
recervoir of nicotine finds its way into
the cigarette, and tho , person who
smokes it gets in a condensed form the
poison wliieh so often works mischief
on the brains oi habitual smokers.

A good old man, being down town
onti evening, was invited to join the
Humanitarian Fudgers. He was de
lighted, and he joined. Next day while
in his garden, ho discovered a boy in
his apple tree. Here was an opportu
nity for showing his neighbors how im
portant a thing is humanitarian fudge.
"See,", he says, "how readily I shall
subdue this wicked boy with humanity."
So his neighbors all gathered at the
fence ami looked through the crack.
"My good boy," cried tho good old
man, "if you will come down out of
that tree I'll give you a great, big piece
of cake." "Cheese it, cully. N hatter
y'u givin' me?" returned the boy, who
always used good language, because
his parents were both respectable. The
neighbors behind the fence tittered.
"Come, now, you know how wicked it
is to steal. I shall have to tell vour
father if you don't get down," "He'll
call vou a liar, old chap, if you do.
You Lad better go in the house." The
neighbors tittered again. The good
old man began to lose his temper.
"Really, boy, I shall have to throw
something at you, if you don't come
down." "Throw and be dcrned, you
old fool, I ain't afeared o' y'u," retort
ed the boy, snatching another apple.
"Maw, haw, now shouted the neigh
bors. Here the good old man, quite
angry, grasped a handful of grass and
hurled it at the boy. "Haw, haw, hee,
haw," yelled the asinine neighbors.
"Fire away, old Stick in the Mud,"
cried the boy. The old man was red
hot and some of the neighbors had
nearly split themselves. "You young
scoundrel," he shouted, seizing a big
slick of hickory stove wood, "if you
don't come down this instant I'll bust
you, you infernal little beast" And
without giving the boy a chauce to re
ply, the good old man sent tho cudgel

dropped his apple and as the good old
man reached foranother club tho young
rascal howled, "(.), Lordy, Mister, if

lii'wn he came, and the neighbors, by
instantly leaping the fence, prevented
the good old man from killing the child
on the spot. The good old man doesn't
go down town any more. Louisville

A Sail Ey B-il.
A. S. Madison, of Chicago, enl'ght
eted a reporter in regard to a new
means of locomotion, as follows:
"I got the idea while sailing an Ice
boat on the Hudson river, last winter,
with the wiud almost dead ahead 1 was
skimming along at the rute of forty
miles an hour, when the thought struck
me, 'whv couldn't I do the same thing
on wheels?' 'But I would have to lay n
groove to run in,' was my next thought,
and then I happened to think of the
railway tracks. The next day I rigged
up a sail and donned a pair of skates.
My experiment was a sucoess and I was
wondering that no one had thought ol
this before, when I happened to pick
up a copy of tho Century Magazine, lu
an article on skating I learned that in
Norway tho skate and the sail were
worked together with much success.
But I still thought of trying the same
thing on wheels. A few weeks ago 1
went to Milwaukee and built my tirst
railboat, as it might be called. In the
first place I made a strong pair of rol
ler skates with wheels the edges of
which fit over the sides of a rail. To
keep myself from falling forward, I
fashioned an iron bar to be adjusted to
my back. This bar was fitted to the
rail, having two small wheels to run
jipon the under edges of the rail, and
one larger wheel which revolved upon
the surface of the rail. I clamped the
rail by means of a spring hinge, by
which one of the small side wheels was
slid into place. Another rod was fas
tened to my right side and exf ruled
across the track fitting by means of
wheels to tho surface and outer under
edge of the rail. This prevented me
from falling to either to the right or
left. My sail was the same one that I
used on a large canoe on Geneva Lake
during the summer. I waited until the
wind was from the north, and was con
siderably hampered in my movements
owing to the curiosity of a couple of
switchmen, who watched me very
closely. This morning I arose very
early, and I confess I could not help
thinking of the sad fate of Darius Green
and his flying machine. But I perse
vered. Just as I had buckled on my
armor I heard a shout. The switchmen
were advancing on me. With a now-or-never
resolve I hoisted the .sail. I
came down in three hours and forty
five minutes and I had to lay oft' twice
to cool off the gearing. Why, the cast
iron tops of my skates were red hot,
and almost blistered my feet I exper
imented with my sail and found that I
could regulate my speed by shifting
the sail. You see, intead of changing
my course I could get the wind to strike
my sail in any position I wanted it
Thus, as in ice boating, I could get a
wonderful speed by a cross wind in my
sail. I didn't let out all my specif,
however, as I did not have a time table
and was afraid of running into the rear
of some slow going freight train ahead
of me. When I got within two miles of
Chicago I let down the sail and packed
up my machine in a bundle. Oh, it's a

'We desire to take five of the most

"Here occurs another pause to allow
the victim to tickle himself.

Vhy Georgians Won't Steal.
I have been living in Georgia seven
years and have never had but one
visit from a beggar. 1 have never
locked my front door at night. My family
sometimes go from home on a visit to a
neighbor and stay all day and leavo
the house unlocked, and nothing has
ever been stolen that we know of. My
stable and corn-crib is never locked.
No honoster people never lived than
live around us. My opinion is that our
people are most too lazy to steal and
wouldn't go after corn unless it was
shucked and shelled ami sacked. I
believe that if I was to put a bag full
of nice corn out at my front cateomo
feller would take it and carry it oft";
put iney won t go to me cnu alter it,
It is too much trouble. Bayard Taylor
tells of a canton in Switzerland where
the merchant marks the price of his
goods and goes off to his little farm
and leaves the store open, and when a
man wants anything he goes in the
store ami measures it or weighs it and
puts the money in the drawer. That is
a good way and saves clerk hire, but
wouldn't advise our merchants to make
the experiment for fear of accidents
The books might not exactly balance

"Do you know how these pictures
are painted!'" inquired an art connois
seur yesterday of a reporter, referring
to the paintings displayed in nn "art
auction hi use."
The newspaper man confessed his
ignorance, and asked to be informed.
"Well, I will tell you a story regard
ing their construction as it was told me
by a thoroughly reliable party. 'He
said he knew an artist in Chicago who
was a good painter, but had wre ked
himself by drink. Broken down,1 he
took to painting pictures for auction
eers, and this is how he did it: ' Ho
would spread a long piece of canvas
along the room and then mark it off
into sections the size he intended to
make tho pictures. Next he- would
mix up about a dozen pots of paint as
many colors as it was necessary for him
to use. Taking the brush from one
pot he would paint a daub, a tree or
something on each section; then ho
would take up another color and go
along the strip of canvas daubing water
or houses on each picture, and so on
till he had turned out tho whole string,
all alike, you know. In this way he
managed to paint about twenty pictures
a day. He received 75 cents for each
picture. My informant assured me
this was all be was paid. Well, 1 that
would be about $ 15 for tho day's work.
This would be enough for the artist to
go off on a drunk with, and that it1 just
what he would do. and remain' drunk
for a few days. Then his funds would
bo out and ho would go to work again.
In this way he managed to keep afloat
and bo drunk the greater part of the
time. You can understand how these
fellows can sell pictures for a trlUe and

so many at a time. Why, $2,50 pays
them well for a picture." St. Louis
