It is not safe to joke among an orien

manners and customs. Lord Charles
Beresford, who accompanied the Prince
of Wales in India, relates a funny inci

"We were elephant shooting in Cey

to Colombo, when the horses in the
wagonette showed signs of fatigue.

President Not Notified.
The Rock ford Star calls attention
to the curious fact referred to by
Senator fcaniunas, wnen be was
asked how a president-elect is to
know he has been elected. The re.
ply was "by reading tbe newspap
ers." The president-elect is not
otherwise notified. According to
the law, the vice-president, after the
returns from the electoral college
have been canvassed, announces to
the congress in joint session the
choice of the electors for president
and vice-president for the ensuing
term. Alter reading in the newspa
pers that he ha been so honored, the
preBiueut-eieci goes to nasningtou
to be sworn in. Meantime the presi
dent, still in omce, is also dependent
upon the newspapers for information
as to tbe identity of his successor,
And to. President Cleveland, -having

Xcarned the Funnel Trick.
Jerry Lynch Las finally learned the
funnel trick. He took it in two doses
one on one evening and tbe other the
next. The senator sauntered np to the
Bohemian club the other day and saw
two or three of the younger members
attempting a new feat, and he watched
them with interest. One of them stuck
a lunnei in tbe top or bis trousers.
threw his head back, placed a SO cent
piece on his forehead and tried to drop
it in the funnel by slowly lowering his
head. After all had failed Jerry in
sisted on trying it, though all bad tried
to dissnade him from attempting a feat
too difficult for them. The funnel was
placed in the waistband of his trousers,
and he threw back his head to receive
the coin on his expansive brow. At that
juncture a pitcher of ice water was emp
tied into the funnel, and by the time
Jerry got through dancing the jokers
had vanished. The senator's temper im
proved with dry raiment, and the next
night at the club he started in to show
a couple of friends the funnel trick.
"It's this way," he explained. "You
put the funnel in the top of yonr panta
loons, so, then throw your head back,
so, and wowl
Again Jerry was forced to change his
raiment, and he is not showing people
what he knows about the funnel trick.

Scotch Thrift Again,
When the history of the Elaekwall
tunuel comes to bo written, the story
will bo incomplete rnless it includes an
account of the w.lowing incident
Quite recently tbe men who were work
ing as usual in the compressed air lock
were alarmed to hear first a rushing
sound and then an ominous roar, fol
lowed m turn by the bursting open of
tne ground overhead. Before they had
time to guess what had happened their
jackets and even their shirts flew off
their backs in shreds, as if by magic.
and some bags of cement were hurried
away by the tremendous draft of the
moment The men fortunately kept
their heads, and to far as circumstances
would permit remained at their posts
ready to cope with any emergency.
One of tho gang, however, was great-

Aa Invalids Kiahtd:
Tho difficulty of changing a night'
dress when a sick person is too feeble to
aid the process is a problem, the suffer
er being often quite exhausted by the
effort. Experience of this has taught me
that a design for a nightdress that
would slip on without strain or diffi
culty would be a boon and a blessing.
The simplest way is to make it button
all the way down from neck to hem.
One of these is of long cloth, trimmed
with insertion and embroidery, the yoke
of alternate tucks and insertion. It
opens all the way to the feet, the but
tons being concealed by the trimminc:
but, if liked, the trimming mav cease in
the ordinary way a little below the
waist, a neat false hem worked with
buttonholes carrying down the neces
sary opening to the feet. For 6uch a
garment about 4 or 5 yards of long cloth
will be required, 44 yards of insertion
and 9 yards of embroidered edging, if
tbis is brought all the way down the
front. fittsburg Dispatch.
