The Elevator Fiend A rain.
There Is an elevator operator in a preten

Jay long amuses the infantile intellect with
vhjcb heaven has afflicted him by playing
on, tha irritability of his passengers. Hia
favorite device to that end Is to stand in
his car with the door partly open and wait
until he sees somebody coming. Then he
calls out, "Goin up!" and the passenger
usually starts on a run for the elevator.
Just a he gets to it the operator slams the
door in his face and starts the car, grin
ning idiotically at the baffled and usually
Irate ferson on the other side. This is fun
to a mind of a certain stamp.
This same operator used to relieve the
tedium of his work by lying about the ten
ants and the number of the floors. When
a mac came along and asked for John
Smith the operator would bark with that
irritating insolence peculiar to his kind,
"Fif fioor." But when the man got out
out at the "fif " he would find that Mr.
Smith's office was on the tenth or twelfth"
Then the human gadfly would stop the car
towat h with glee how his unfortunate
victim was wandering miserably about the
One of his favorite diversons was to
change every day the system by which he
counted the floors. One day the ground
floor wis the first and the next day the
first wns the first floor above the ground.
By this means if a man came in today and
got out at the fifth floor to see Mr. Jones,
tomorrow he would get out oue floor too
high or too low. At which, of course, the
ywung man in the elevator was immensely
Avenng lightning may not strike this
young man nor the building fall on him,
but tho tenants still have hopes. They
think that some day somebody will come
along w ho isn't afraid of him, and not ap
preciating his peculiar humor will lay for
him and break his neck perhaps. Xew

An Awful Snake Story.
A hoop snake chased Architect Rufus B.
Van Iderstine down Orange mountain,
Xew Jeisey, and he only escaped an awful
death by strategy.
Going to East Orange he saw what he
supposed was a 12-foot section of firehose
hanging over a rock high above the road.
On close inspection he saw it was a serpent
with a head like a bulldog and a tail that
ended with a barbed stinger half a foot
Rufus took to his heels when he saw the
monster move down the rocks. He got
half a mile start, but looking back at the
bend of t he road he saw the snake grasp
its tail in its mouth, forming a hoop that
swiftly railed after him. The hoop snake
came on with electric speed. When the
frightful creature was within a hundred
yards of him. Van Iderstine darted behind
a big oak. The hoop snake swerved, and
coming en in blind rage, drove his spear
like tail into the tree.
It wai trapped. Rufus hurried to
Orange for help to return and destroy the
monster. Two hours later half a dozen
men with shotguns ascended the moun
tain. The hoop snake was gone. It had
pulled its tail out of the hollow, horny
stinger, which was left buried in the tree.
It was so deeply imbedded that only chips
from its edges could be broken off.
Poison from the stinger was killing the
tree and its foliage was curled and with
ered when the hoop snake hunters first saw
it. An ugly green liquid dripped from the
hollow st.nger like sap from a sugar tree
spile and deadened the green it fell upon.

The Boas Tramp.
There Li a man in Xashville who has
traveled the length and breadth of the
United States, from Maine to Mexico, from
New York to San Francisco, and did not
pay a dinje for his passage, and he rode
half the way in a first class passenger
coach, the other half in box cars and as
"blind bat gage." "I made o0 once." said
he, "and it was the easiest money that ever
came into my hands. Major Clarfee was
tha passen er agent of the Atchison, To
peka and Santa ITe road, and I went to him
in Fort Worth, told him I was unfortu
nate and I wanted to get out of town. He
gave me a pass to some point about thirty
miles up tl e road, and I left that night.
"When I went into the coach, who should
I meet but Major Clarfee, He motioned
for me to have a seat by him, and com
menced asking about me and how I man
aged to get about 'Why, major,' I said,
'I have traveled over your road a thousand
times and never paid a cent or had a pass,
nor beat my way.' At this the old man
pricked up his ears, for he thought he
would catc 3 some one of bis conductors at
softie underhand trick. 'How do you
do itf tho major asked me. 'That's a
secret,' said I. 'I'll give you $20 to put me
on to it.' 'Make it $50,' said I. 'Done,'
and he passed over the money. 'Well, ma
jor, I walk.' " Xashville American.
Tha Misuse of a Phrase.
There is nothing obscure in the etymology
of the Spaidsh phrase, 1 Dorado, which
means literUly "The Gilded," yet to such
an extent hits it been abused that few know
that it originally related to a man and not
toacountry. Iu the latter sense it has been
applied to almost every gold bearing dis
trict encountered in America since the dis
covery, and there is scarcely a mining camp
in our far w stt but has named its richest
lode or most popular resort, whether bar
room, billiard saloon or theater, El Dorado.
As early as the Sixteenth century it
served to daiignate an imaginary region
abounding la gold and precious stones in
the interior of South America, but prior to
this acceptation it had become a synonym
for the most remarkable legend of the Xew
World, the Hup posed eastern proximity of
which invessed its unexplored territory
with the glamour of oriental romance.
The terra was Indeed an appellation of
royalty, aud El Dorado perhaps a veritable
king, whose daily attire is said to have
been a simple coating of aromatic rosins,
followed by sprinkling of gold dust blown
through a ban boo cane. Lieutenant H. R.
