First the detective Is provided with
a complete list of everything which N
owned by the hotel every particle of
linen, silver, soap. eK Then he'delc
gates the responsibility for the care of
them to various head waiters, waiters,
housekeepers and chambermaids.
Then he gets a list each ifer of new
arrivals and of those who h.;ving re

leave. From these lists of occupied
rooms the detective calculates the
areas where trouble might possibly
brew and into those h' gees with his

The chambermaid is required to give

In turn taken to the laundries, where a
balance is made of those sheets, towels,

placed carefully in her locked trunk
will not be "missed."
Her trunks and bags on their way

It Is very gently removed and check

She Is sent cheerily on her war re-joh-ing

nil reason to account for the fact that
the towels anil pillow cases that she
knows well she put Into her trunk
have mysteriously disappeared.

. PICTURES FOR THE DOGS.
A Cinematograph Show Only Interest
ed the Animals In Spots.
A moving picture show was recent
ly given In Loudon to determine what
effect a cinematograph picture had on
the intelligence of animals. A series
of motion pictures was reeled off In
a darkened room before an audience
tf prize dogs. First some pictures oil
a dog show were run through. The
dogs walked up and had a look at It
aud turued away, obviously bored and
uninterested. Evidently the subject
was too familiar.
They woke u. however, when on
elephant came splashing into n pool
of water aud appeared to be walking
into the room. A massive bulldog
made a dnsdi for the screes. With his
head up and ears pricked, he got
ready to attack, and the whole audi
ence barked and bayed iu blood cur
dling discord. Pictures of birds also
Irritated them, but when other ani
mals were shown they quickly recog
nized that they were Dot looking at
the real thing and in a few seconds
quieted down completely.
The general result of the experi

understand still pictures, but that they
