the candidates must put their shoul
ders to the wheel, but Mr. McKinley
is general director and adviser of the
various campaigns, especially in dis

Tolstoy's sister Marie relates that
one day at the hour of luncheon he
succeeded in eluding the vigilance of
his tutor in order to carry into execu
tion a project he had long had in view.
This was to jump out of the window
into the courtyard, a distance of fif
teen feet below. The boy did it and
rrovidentially did not break any bones.
but the shock was so great that he
slept afterward for eighteen hours.
Nothing caused Tolstoy the boy more
annoyance about this time than the
knowledge that he was very plain fea
tured. To be revenged on nature he
determined to make himself still uglier

FOR THE CHILDREN
Away back in the seventeenth cen
tury a boy of Saxony owned a mastiff
which bad a peculiar bark. The boy
thought that there was a resemblance
iv the sounds made bj it to some Ger
man words, and be determined that
be would teach the animal to speak.
The task was a difficult one. but the
boy had great patience and finally
taught the dog to speak thirty words,
a few of them French, but tiie major
ity German. The words were simply
uttered by the dog after the boy had
It is said that in the year 1718 a dog
was exhibited in Holland which could
pronounce all the letters of the alpha
bet except i, m and n. In the year
1719 there was a speaking dog at Ber
lin, and the "Bibliotheque Germa
nique" fur 1720 asserts that there was
then a dog which could speak sixty
words and that it showed a preference
for short words, never attempting to
speak a word of more than three syl
These cases are. of course, remark
able, and yet it cannot be said that the
dogs employed speech in the real sense
of the term, for there is no evidence
that thought determined them in the
choice of words. They simply imitated
the human voice.

The Game of Queries.
This interesting game may be made
instructive or merely amusing, as thf
players may prefer. Each player is
furnished with a sheet of paper and a
pencil and is told to write at the top
of the sheet a question of a historical
nature or one that is pure nonsense. At
the extreme bottom of the sheet he
must write the correct answer and
then fold the bottom over so that the
answer cannot be seen. The papers
are then pawed to the right, and the
players receiving them must write an
answer just above the folded answer
and then fold the paper down so that
it cannot be seen. The papers are
then passed again to the right, and an
swers are written and folded down as
before until every player has written
an answer. The papers are then col
lected, and the questions and answers
are read aloud for the information or
amusement of the company.
A Curious Barometer.
The goldfish, which is distributed
over nearly all parts of the world, is
one of the most interesting members
of the finny tribe. It apparently is
very susceptible to the atmospheric
changes, and any one who takes the
trouble to note its actions in the aqua
rium will be astonished to find that
the beautiful little fish is a true proph
et in matters relating to changes in the
When ,111 area of lower temperature,
with rain or snow, is approaching, the
goldfish remains near the surface of
the water, while if clear, sunshiny
weather is expected it will almost
always lie found near the center of the
reservoir. This seems very strange,
but a little observation will prove the
statement to be correct..
The Game of Scandal.
Any number of persons may sit In a
row or circle. One of them begins by
whispering a story in the ear of his
next neighbor, and he iv turn whis
pers it to the next, and so on till it
reaches the last, who relates it aloud.
The first player then gives it as it was
told in the beginning, and it will gen
erally be found that the two stories
are quite different. Instead of a story
a single sentence, spoken very fast,
may be used. It is called scandal be
cause it shows how stories are often
changed in passing from mouth to
