Why Ho Loot His Job of Waking
Up tho Snoror.
"I guess tho oddest Job I ever had,"
said a man who in the course of bis
llfo thus far has had many curious em
ployments, "was waking up a snorer.
"The man I bad this Job with was a
man with a good deal more than com
fortable means, and Just about as nlco
a man aa over lived, but ho certainly
was a snorer. This didn't bother blm
any on his own no-ount, but it did
worry blm because it disturbed other
people, and he tried all manner of
means to stop It.
"Ho tied up his head when he "went
to bed so that ho couldn't open his
mouth, and ho tried sleeping on his
right sldo and on his left and ou his
back, and lying straight und lying
crooked and every way But nothing
doing. Ho would got to snoring, nnd
finally he thought up the Idea himself
of having somebody to sit In his room
nights and wako. him up the mlnuto
his trombono started, and I was the
man he got. Ho',hlred me through his
physician. I'd done some little work
nt onu tlmo and another for this doc
tor, and he recommended me.
"And that looked like n good Job to
me at tho start. Ho was a Jolly, nice
man, and he fixed me up very comfort
ably in a sort of alcove there was In
his room, with a blgeasy chair along
side a tablo with a lot of books and
magazines on It, and with a high
screou between tbo chair and table
and his bed to shut off the. light from
" 'Now, there you aro.' be says, the
first night I sat In with him, 'books
nnd papors and an easy chair, and you
Just mako yourself comfortable, only
don't rustlo tho leaves any moro than
you can-help, and whatever olso you
do don't upset tins screen when you're
hurrying to wake mo up, because that
would startle the folks more than my
snoring.' And then ho goes to bed.
"And ho hadn't much more than got
thoro beforo ho began to snoro, but I
was on tho Job, standing at his sldo
and wuklng him In a minute, and
he was a llttlo bit surprised that first
time I waked him, but 'he remombered
In a mlnuto nnd snldrAll right, son,
and smiled and went to sleep again.
"I bad to wako him llko tbnt two
or three or four times a night, Irreg
ular, sometimes more, sometimes lost),
but wo got along all right. Ho sure
was an able snorer, and somettmos
ho'd sLirt right olT full blast right
from tho Jump, but usually I was ublo
to got him beforo ho'd, begun to mako
tho liouso tremblo, tfnd things went
along that wa, everything all right,
for about seven weeks just as nlco as
could be, tho schemo working as slick
as you could imagine; und tho boss
was pleased, aud I cortatnly was.
"It was night work, I know, but I
didn't mind that, tho pay was good
aud the work t-usy, and I thought I
was fixed and Buttled in about as nlco
and easy a Job as a man could havo.
And then all uf a sudden ono night
this job wont up tbo Bpout lu a min
ute, "That night, or along about 3:1C In
the morning It was, wbllo I waB sitting
thore In the big arm chair for tbo boss
to turn up, I felt somebody shaking
my shoulders, and shaking bard
opough, pretty uoar, to shake my head
.off und then I wako -up and sees tbo
bosa standing ovor mo; .
" 'Govornor,' I says, 'what's the mat
ter?' though I know, what was tho
matter well enough, S,
"'Matter?' bo Bays!'; 'matter? Why
If I snoro onetwentV;flty aa loud as
you do I wonder they didn't put me
out'of the hoiiBO long ago,'
And that was nil there was to It;
the govornor had been a flttlo qulotor
than usual that night 'and not being
called so often I had fallen asleep en
my post aud gone to snoring m7
self, and I suppose the boss was
right about how loud I wa snoring
because, as a matter of fact, I am
something of a snorer; If I could rely
on my snoring regular and even, I
could have made a fortune long ago
hiring out as a foghorn Anywhere, on
"No wonder the governor was dla
turned; I'd waked up not only him,
but the whole family, and that was the
last of my Job thore.
"He took it just as nice as could
bo; In faot, ho was Inclined to laugh
over it aud think it was sor.t of funny,
but bo eald ho couldn't take such a
risk again, and he Just' gave me a
month's pay in advance and let me go.
"And that wns the only Job of the
kind 1 over took. I had thought after
I'd been with", the 'govern6r about a
month that T'.ould make this my
regular business ;x,il was easy nnd
good pay,, rind I could got plenty of
other people to look after, Just as I
had this one, through my friend, the
doctor; but after this experience,
when I came to consider what might
happen If I should fall asleep myself,
why, I didn't think It would be fair to

WOMAN AND HER WORRIES.
Pair Sex Criticized by a Writer In
It may fairly be said that women
have only themselves to blame for a
very considerable proportion of do
mestic worry, with Its consequences
of Irritability and bad temper, leading
to worse things, says a writer in Cns
sell's Magazine. Even after fully rec
ognizing that the ordinary housewife
Is specially subject, at any rate at
times, to unavoidable worry, we must
surely grant that the common prac
tlce of living up to tbe very limit of i
one's meanB, If not beyond It is re
sponsible for a great deal of woman s
worry that mjght be avoided One
says, especially, woman's worry be
cause it would appear that the wife,
rather than the husband, Is more often
responsible for the neglect of that '
margin of Income which, as Mr
Micawber knew, spelU happiness.
Hence It Is worth while yet again to
point out the commonplace facts
that the happiness attained by keep
ing tbroo servants when you can af
ford two is most lamentably out
weighed, not merely by the wony in
volved In the Incessant effort to make
both ends meet, but also by the con
sequences of that worry on sleep,
health, digestion and temper these,
again, Injuring every member of the
family and possibly leading to its ut
MU8IC IN THE TYROL.
Peculiar Charm of Concerts as Qlven
by the Peasants,
There Is a slow rising scale from
the simplest summer music to tbe
splendor of the Ring Bayreuth, or still
higher, to an occasional Mozart fest
at Salzburg, writes a musician on his
European holiday Jaunt. Somewhere
near the humbloat beginnings, and
yet with a real Interest all their own,
are tbe small village concerts In the
Bavarian Tyrol. Taking a supper at
the rough tables In the open air. in
the midst of peasant gayety and the
pretty colors of the costumes, wo look, ,
admiring, at tbo group of performers,
sitting at a raised table, adorned In
tho full glory of the national dress ,
feathers In tho cap, brilliant waistcoat, '
truuserB that leave a gap bolow the I
knee. One of tbe men plays the zither
to the other's singing In a certain nar
row round of harmonies that seem to
fit all the songs. For theso vary real
ly only In rhythm. Or the singers will
produce hidden violins and a trumpet
and have suddenly changed Into a
band. However simple tho music,
there Is always the old charm of the
Tyroleae Intervals und folksong.
Hugo's Beautiful Faith.
Victor Hugo's confosslon of faith
Is going tbe rounds of tbo magazines
and papers and Is as follows: "Just
as tho "rays of the moon lose the fig
ure of the sun and bring to ua, In
stead of its Image, a certuln aspect
of tho medium through which they
pass, so the Idea of God, reflected by
religions and proceeding from them,
loses, so fo speak, the form of God
aud takes on the moro or less mis
erable configurations of the human
brain. . . . lu religion, I put God above
dogma. If 1 were sure that this
grave statement would bo beard and
understood seriously, I would say that
