,| One of the most fruitful sources of
Sisecuring a good income isn invent
ing games and forms of entertain
meat for private parties, sociables and
receptions, says the Scientific Ameri
can. The extraordinary demand for
something new in the line of entertain
ing Is evidenced by the number of new
games and tricks put on the market
every year. These multiply rapidly,
but most of them, being merely varia
tions of old games, attract little more
than assilng notice. But when a real
t ly new and original game, trick or form
of entertainment Is invented, the pub
lic shows Its appreciation by adopting
it Immediately a the prevailing fad.
L There are so very few original inven
tions of this nature that it is safe to
say that any one who has the genius
to discover one will reap financial re
ward sufficient to support her for the
rest of her life.
These new forms of amusement need
not necessarily be elaborate and ex
pensive in character. Sometimes the
very simple ones attract the most at
tention and actually earn more money
for their owners. Women in particu
lar are jading this field an attractive
one for testing their inventive abili
ities. Many who go into it find in a
little while that they are unfitted for
it. They have great adaptive powers,
L but not inventive faculties. The for
mer will win renown and financial re
turns in proportion to the amount of
work put in the efforts.
The patent office at Washington is
besieged by applicants for inventions
that are made for the purpose of amus
ing and entertaining, and the list
that is annually rejected because they
infringe upon the rights of others is
d very great. Nevertheless, women have
been very successful in the last two
years in this direction, and according
to statistics given they have equaled
the men both in the number and pop
ularity of their inventions to amuse.
Last year fully a score of such pat
eats were taken out by women who
must have made comfortable incomes
from the sales of the articles. One
successful trick, game or puzzle should
in the ordinary course of events make
a tidy income for a woman for several
It Is somewhat surprising that wom
en inventors have not invaded this
field more numerously than they have,
for by virtue of their associations, life
work and aspirations they should be
in closer touch with what children
and societies, need of entertainment
than men. Until quite recently most
of the toys and games, were invented
entirely by men, while women invent
ors seemed to turn their attention to
other subjects. This now has been
changed somewhat, and the toys that
are annually brought out are the work
of minds and hands of wonten as much
as of those of the masculine sex.
The toy season is not by any means
confined to Christmas. It is pretty well
distributed over the whole year; but
the toys differ according to the sea
sons, and the inventor who wishes to a
make money with her designs must
anticipate events. Birthdays are hap
pening every day in the year, and
thousands of toys suitable for such oc
casions are bought continuously the
year round. The popular birthday
present is a feature of the toy trade
that was never better appreciated than
today. Heretofore the remnants of
Christmas toys were supposed to an
swer the purpose, and disgusted pa- a
rents would travel frols store to store
In a vain search for something unlike I
the toys that had piled up around the a
family hearth at the last midwinter
holiday. Birthday toys are consequent
ly in great demand.
Who can produce something appro- I
priate for such occasions, suitable to 1
man, woman, boy and girl? The per- I
sqn who can accomplish this is sure I
to find a steady sale that will in the 1
end more than aggregate the total
Christmuas sales. Souvenirs and table r
decorations of a novel form and shape I
are also as constantly in demand as
the birthday presents, and, like the C
latter, they must be peculiarly adapted
to the purpose. To invent such a gift c
or souvenir to sell well the mind must I
study out the question as carefully 1
as if a mathematical problem was of- c
tered for solution. One must make c
herself more or lees thoroughly fa- y
millar with all the material on hand, c
and with the inventions in the same E
field that have been made before. With- t
out this necessary preliminary prep- t
aration the chances of successful in
ventions will hardly be very great. t
Social games and entertainments for E
young and o1l depend largely upon t
the character of the audiences forthelr r
success, and a study of human nature
should be one of the first essentials F
for preparation in this line. A profes
sional entertainer who goes abroad t
every summer to visit foreign lands p
to study the little methods of life and l
social intercourse in Europe always re- '
turns with a great fund of new ideas i
wsich she modifies and adapts to her d
American audiences. She is not so
original as adapLre nor so adaptive
uas tactfuL She knows Instinctively
and by study what her audiences would a
like, and this she alms to give them o
She invariably proves such a success c
that her entertainments are often re- c
pated by request, and she makes a t
good income and secures all the pleas- Ii
ures and advantages of travel abroad. a
She makes up her program for the win
tar ahead of time, and always keeps a a
certain stock of ideas and plans ahead d
which she can use In an emergency. h
Sometimes the best made program will
prove a failure, and it is then that the c
resourcefuines of the entertainer
shows itself. If unable to fall back t
on somethling else to make u1 for the t
allure, she would soon lose prestige. t
The professional evening, entertainer *
is boecoming more and more a social
factor in our large towns and cities,
and the demands for her services grow
In proportion to the success of the ef- 11
forts put forrea. There are many young f
women of today who are making their ,

During, the storms that rage inter

"I would rather spend my Hlie in a
penal settlement than be a lighthouse
keeper," declared a gentleman to the
writer, after a visit to the Bishop light
house, off the Cornish coast "A con

lives in, but a lighthouse keeper sees
nothing but a dreary expanse of wa
ter. I am not surprised that many of
them should lose their mental bal
The visitor to the Bishop lighthouse
did hot oeer color the picture. It was
only the other day that one read of the
Longships lighthouse, also off the coast
of Cornwall, having been completely
isolated for many weeks in conse
quence of fearful storms. The keepers
had been reduced to smoking coffee,
hope and tea leaves, though, fortunate
ly, they had not wanted for food.
The keepers of the famous Eddy
stone lighthouse not infrequently find
themselves in a similar predicament.
In a gale the waves that buffet them
selves against this wonderful monu
ment to the engineering skill of the
country are of such stupendous magni
tude that they rise to a height of 200
feet, and swee'p right over the lan
tern. To those cooped up inside the
sound of these waves is like that of a
battery of guns at close quarters. "At
such times the house shakes like a
tree with a man on the top of it," was
the graphic description of one who
spent many years of life there.
The new Eddystone is the roomiest
and most comfortable of all our rock
lighthouses. A sectional view shows
the various compartments, commenc
ing at the bottom with the water tank,
then the entrance, the two oil recepta
cles, the store room, the crane, the liv
ing apartment, the low light, the bed
room and the service room. Formerly
only two keepers were employed in
the lighthouse, but a grim incident re
sulted in their number being increased.
One of tL., two men died. So fierce ran
the seas that the remaining keeper
could not get the body of his late com
rade to the shore. For a month the
tempestuous weather continued and for
a month the surviving keeper lived
alone in that solitary place with the
body as his only companion. He was
afraid to cast it into the waves, for he
might be accused of murder.
Keepers of rock lighthouses do not
last long. The Incessant pounding of
the waves against the building, the
loneliness, the want of fresh air and
exercise reduce the men to a state of
nervousness that is sometimes pitiful
to behold. They require a fortnight's
leave every six weeks, but this liberal
allowance does little to improve thjtir
physical state. A medical man whose
duty it is to pay periodical visits to
one of our lighthouses confesses that
there is no remedy for the ills pecu
liar to the keepers except retirement.
The utter isolation of the silent sen
tinels of our coast is well illustrated
by the care of the Bishop lighthouse
aforementioned, whichstands right out
in the Atlantic. Nbt once in a year
is it calm enough for the superintend
ent to land his stores at the lighthouse
steps. They have to be hauled up by 3
means of a windlass from above. A
visitor bold enough to visit the place
is "admitted" in a similar way. He
places one foct in a noose at the end ,
of a rope, which 13 thrown down to his i

Superstition adds a terror to the life
of the men in this lighthouse, for the
first structure was washed away bodi
ly, and the keepers believe that the
rock is haunted. A fear of a different
kind keeps the men of Muckle Flugga u

Scotland--on the tenterhooks of a ter- b
rible suspense. On three occasions the k

house stands has been shaken by an

At one of the zoological gardens a

Ie cage of the monkeys, relates the
- incinnati Enquirer. The monkeys
tad always shown so much curiosity
about the rats that the keeper one day
Soncluded to put one of the rats in
with them to see what they would do.
Irhey fairly screamed with delight
when the rat entered and at- once be
I an to make friends with him.
S'lhe rat was inclined to run away

picked out the choice bits and gave
:hem to him, as if he were a guest
whom they were delighted to entertain.
One day a new idea occurred to the
)ldest monkey. 'He had the rat in his
arms, and putting it down gently on

sat down on it. The rat did not move,
for did it seem to object to the queer

After sitting there for a while, he
lot up so that the other monkeys
night try it, and they were all as much
pleased as he had been.
From that time on the rat was in
laily use as a cushion, and he took it
with perfect good temper, never ob

A Tramp Dog's Eratitude.
'"I had an experience the other
night," remarked an Indianapolis
"Recently a long, lank, yellow dog,
about three feet high, of decidedly
unprepossessing appearance except
for its benevolent face, came to our
house, and, finding me standing in the
kitchen door, began to wag his tall
earnestly and to look into my face
with a gaze that contained an unmis
takable appeal for something to eat.
Of course, I could not resist the plea of
a dumb brute that was hungry. What
woman can? When the creature had
eaten to its heart's, or rather its
stomach's content it walked out of the
door just as a gentlemanly tramp
might have done.
"Later in the same day the dog
came back for a drink. Then I did
not see it any more until that night,
when I had occasion to go up town
at a rather late hour. I had hardly
gone a few feet from my house be
fore I heard the delicate patter of
animal feet back of me. Looking
around, I saw my four-footed pensioner
of a few days before, still wagging
his tail, but this time looking at me
with only gratitude and kindly feeling
in his face. I was not particularly
well pleased at being followed through
the public streets by such a sorry
looking creature, but when I told the
dog to go back he gently refused to
"When I had accomplished the pur
pose of my errand and turneod to re
trace my steps homeward the dog
was there to accompany me. Just uas
we were turning of the Circle into one
of the principal streets a man stepped
rudely into my pathway and grinned
at me. Quick as a flash the dog sprang
in front of me, and, curling his lips,
began to growl in a most terrifying
way, saying, in a manner as intel
ligible uas if he had employed human
utterance, 'I guess you had better
clear out of here at once.'
"The man lost little time in re
treating to the dark corner from which
he had come, and the rest of the way
home, you may be very sure, I paid
a great deal of attention to my humble
protector. Yes, I am quite sure dogs

sort, or at least they comprehend the
meaning of a threatening gesture or
attitude. That dog is always certain

But why didn't this boy run sad

then-his bright eyes saw the cake

and wpat a feast for the baby chip

he wanted those crumbs.

the little boy sat still-he saw Mr.

together they planned to make friends
with their new neighbor.
And every day when Billy sat un

crumbs of bread or cake, or some
tempting nuts lying near the chair.
And so, day by day, Mr. Chipmunk
forgot that boys were his enemies and
came oftener and stayed longer. And
by and by he brought his family, his
dear little fuzzy babies, and they too
made friends with Billy.

As Unexpected Parade.
Anna had been sick for two weeks,
but now she was able to sit up by the
window and see the children go by on
their way to school, and watch the
chickens scratch industriously in Mrs.
Fitkin's yard. There did not seem to
be much else to look at, and after a
day or two she began to tire of having
to sit so still.
But the worst of all was when her
brother Tommy told her that papa had
promised to take him down town the
next afternoon to see the parade. Anna
had heard all about the parade, for
mamma had read to her about it from
the newspaper, and there were to be
soldiers in it, and bands of music, and
men on horseback, all dressed in splen
did uniforms, and oh, she did want to
see it so much.
But of course she couldn't, for the
doctor would not even let her walk
about the house yet. It did seem toe
"I'm awful sorry, Anna," said Tom
my, as he and papa started out the
next day, "but I'll tell you all about it
when I get back, just the best I can."
Papa kissed her goodby and whis
pered a loving little message in her
ear, and then they were gone.
Anna tried to be very brave, because
she knew it would grieve mamma if
she was unhappy about it, and of
course it couldn't be helped; but at the
same time she could not help wishing
that she was well and able to go, too.
She did not feel at all interested in
Mrs. Fitkin's hens, and there wasn't
anything else to watch, except a yel
low dog that was lying stupidly in the
middle of the road.
Anna laid her head against the back
of the big easy chair and closed her
eyes. She was thinijing about Tommy 1
and the soldiers and the music, when
from out in the street she heard a
strange, shrill laugh.
She sat up very quickly and looked
out. And there was the strangest pro
cessialon. There were three, four, five,
wagons coming up the street, and on
each wagon there were two or three
cages, although at a distance they sim
ply looked like big boxes.
Anna called mamma excitedly, for
in one of the cages on the first wagon
was a gorgeous red and blue parrot
which was talking and laughing by
turns, and evidently enjoying the ride
very much. There were several other
cages on this wagon, some of which
held eagles and others owls, and in one
was a small monkey, which now and
thet opened its mouth as widely as
possible and gave the funniest long,
Anna sat up and clapped her hands
softly. "O msama." she said, "how
The other wagons held larger cages.
There were black bears standing on
their hind legs, holding to the bars at
the side of their cages, and wolves
walking back and forth as it they
would like to find some way of getting
out so that they might run off to the
woods again. There were foxes, too,
and in one cage was a wildcat. It did
not look one bit wild, but like an Im
mense big house cat, with beautiful
eyes and a coat of silky hair. Anna
said she felt like hugging it.

which occupied an entire wagon, there I
were sea lions, but Anna could not see
them very well, for they could not
climb or walk about like the other ani
mals. But one raised his head, and
Anna was satisfied with that.
On the last wagon was a large ape
which must have been teased by the
boys and girls, for as soon a it caught
sight of Anna at the window it began
making faces at her. This was the :
funniest sight of all.
She watched the ape antil it was out
of sight, sad then she turned to mam
ma and asked, "Where do you suppose
they came from, and wasn't it funny
that they came today, just when I
was wishing so much to see a parade?"
•Mamma laughed. "Yes, it was fun
ny," she said, answering Anna's last
question first, "but I think I know a
where they came from- They are the
animals that have been kept in the
park during the summer, and now that
the weatner is becoming colder they
are beaing moved to winter quarters.
They are to be kept in some large
barns on a stock farm outside the city."
"Well," replied Anna, as she leaned
back in her chair, "I am glad they did
go past bhere; and won't I have some
thing to tell Tommy when he comes
reom the wrime Que5r.,
"Well, what on earth did he marry
"And he didn't get eve that"
"Oh, yes; from his friends.~"--Phfl

According to a government publica
tion, the cocoa bean from which ehoc
olate is manufactured is produced in
its finest form in the republic of Ven
eauela, though various other parts of
Central and South America grow and
export large quantities. Two crops of
the bean are gathered each year, and
the manufacture consists simply in
grinding up the beans into a meal and
then adding sugar and arrowroot, with
the necessary flavor---generally vall

moistened until it is in a asmi-fluid
state, after which it is run into molds

NAMES THAT ARE POPULAR.

Parents display some queer notions
1f propriety in naming their children.
Those of a religious turn of mind more
.requently in former times than now
gearched the Scriptures before the bap
ismal ceremony. Parents In search of
a fortune will label their luckless
abes with the surname of the expect
id testator. But, nevertheless, the list
)f common English Christian names
a a very small one. Out of every 100
ethers and .mothers of male children
come 84 limit their choice to 16 famll
The favorite name is undoubtedly
William. In all ranks of society-In
he peerage as in the workhouse-Wil
lam is the commonest of male Chris
Stop the first 1.000 men you meet in
:he street. No fewer than 170 are Wil
lams. A long way behind comes the
Johns, closely followed by the Georges.
X3 every 1,000 men 94 are called John
and 92 George.
The next commonest name is Thom

laims 72. * Henry and Harry between
hem are 70 in number. Of these about
me In four have received the name of
Harry at the baptismal font Follow
ig them come Frederick with 57,
'harles with 48, Alfred with 45 and
albert some way behind with 81. The
popularity of Albeit has arisen en
irely from the personal popularity of
:he late queen's beloved consort. It
was practically unknown in England
before Queen Victoria's marriage.
The good old Saxon appellation of
Edward is given to 25 out of every
1,000 citizens, Arthur and Robert hav
ag each 23, while of the remainder of
these 1,000 men you have accosted in
.he street 17 are called Joseph and 15
Herbert. So we have accounted for no
fewer than 866 out of every 1,000 Eng
ishmen, and they divide between them
)nly 15 out of the many hundreds, nay
thousands, of names from which par
nts are at liberty to choose.
Of the remaining 144 of our repre
sentative 1,000 a few, such as Richard,
Percy or Ernest, are claimed severally
by two or three men, but all the rest
are the sole and exclusive property of
'one in 1,000."
Highest of Waterfais.
The ;hest waterfall in the world,
geography tells us, is the Cerosola
Cascade, in the Alps, having a fall of
2,400 feet; that of Arvey in Savoy, is
1100 feet and the falls of Yosemite
Valley range from 700 to 1,000 feet.
But higher yet is the waterfall in the
San Cuayatan Canon, in the State oft
Durango, Mexico. It was dicovered
by some prospectors, ten years ago, in
the great barranca district which is
called the Tlerras Desconocidas. While
searching for the famous lpst mine,
NaranJal, a great roar of water was
heard. With great dlficulty the party
pushed on, and up and down the
mighty chasms until they beheld the
superb fall that is at least 8,000 feet
high.-Land of Sanshine.

It will entirely cure the worst forms of Female Complaints, all Ova
rian trouble Inlfammation and Ulceration, Falling and Displacement
of the Womb, and consequent Spinal Weakness, and is peculiarly
adapted to the Change of iafe.
It has cured more cases of Backacho and Leucorrheea than any
other remedy the world has ever khown. It is almost infallible in such
cases. It dissolves and expels tumors from the Uterus in an early stage
of development, and checks any tendency to cancerous humors.
Irregular, Suppressed or Painful Menstruation, Weakness of the
Stomach, Indiestn, Bloat, Flood , Norvous Prostration, Head
ache, General Debility quickly yields to It.
Womb troubles, causin pin, weight, and backache, instantly re
lieved and permanently cured by its use. Under all circumstances it
acts in harmony with the laws that govern the female system, and is as
harmless as water.
It quickly removes that Bearlng-down Feeling, extreme lassi
tude, "don't care" and "want-to-be-left-alone" feeling, excitability,
irritability, nervousness, Dissiness, Faintness, sleeplessness, flatulency,
melancholy or the "blues," and backache. These are sure indications
of Female Weakness, or some derangement of the Uterus, which this
medicine always cures.
Kidney Complaints and Backache of either sex the Vegetable
Compound always cures.
No other female medlelne in the world has received such
widespread and unqualised endorsement. No other medicine
has such a rieord of cures eo female troubles.
Those women who refuse to aceept anything else are re
warded a hundred thousamd times, for they get what they want
-a oure. Sold by Druggists everywhere. Refuse all substitutes.
