palury can afford to live so well?" repeated
the veteran tleatTtail man after me.
"Why, my boy, it ts simple enough. Stand
in the box offlse of a large theater any
night and you ill understand it You see,
a large part of the seats are sold within
half an hour before each performance.
That menus the handling of a great deal of
money in a very short time. In the rush a
great many people are bound to get ex
cited and forg-t all about how mnch
money they have and how much change
they should get back. Their carelessness
is tiie ticket stller's gain. Not that he
does anything wrong or that there is any
thing approaching to cheating.
"For instance, an excited man rushes up
to the window after the curtain has gone
up, throws dov n a ten dollar bill and
asks for five s-'nts. He should get back
two dollars and a half in change. But as
soon as the tickets are handed him he
grabs them and Tushes into the theater.
Another man behind him shoves the bills
to one side and demands the best seats in
"This happen; once or twice in the course
of the night, an 1 that is the reason why
ticket sellers have a much better income
than most folks suppose.
"Ticket sell in;,- for a circus is still more
profitable. 1 knew a man who onceoffered
a large royalty f ir the privilege of running
the ticket wagon of a big circus.
"Of course tl e ticket seller only turns
over to the managers as much money as
sold tickets call for. The rest he keeps,
for he has no -vay of knowing who it
really does belc ng to. Of course, if the
careless one mis- es it and goes to claim it,
lie always gets it back, for, as I have said,
there is no int. ntion to be dishonest."'

Will Making and Will Breaking.
"There is aloluteIy no safety nowa
days," said a w 11 known lawyer of this
city the other day, "in making a will. If
yon have a lot of money and don't, dispose
of it in a way to suit your relatives they
are sure to rush Into court about it and
make trouble for your widow or children
or both. Very often, in sheer disgust, the
legitimate heirs will compromise their
claims rather than permit themselves to
be dragged tbroi gh a long and expensive
lawsuit. Of course, the lawyers profit hy
these controversies, but they have been
carried during tie past few years to such
a disgraceful extent that even lawyers are
disgusted with the injustice of them.
"It is a comparatively easy thing under
our present laws for a disgruntled claim
ant upon an estate to have a will broken,
but evils, when shey become unbearable,
are sure to reme iy themselves. The evil
of will breaking has reached that stage,
and I predict a g-eat reaction in favor of
the will maker at against the will breaker.
Then wills will dave some validity and a
man tnaydiewiih the comforting assur
ance that after h s demise his property will
be distributed as he wishes it to be. As the
laws are now, tht) only sure course for him
to pursue is that of giving his property be
fore death. But, as any one can readily
see, this is attent ed by some dangers and
conditions which do not make it very at
tractive. Thoughtful people are awaken
ing to the evils of the case with which
judges declare dead men to be incapable of
distributing their own property, and will
soon insist upon reforming them." New
Lightning on Shipboard. -
My father was walking the poop of his
vessel in Sydney harbor, and, as it was
rather a close, wf.rm evening, the awnings
were furled. It was thundering and light
ning. He had just got aft and turned
around when he s iwsomething exceedingly
bright drop before him, and he was knocked
down. In fallu g he struck his head
against the rail, which stunned him for a
minute. When he got up he found that
the front part of his legs was severely
scorched. Two of the planks in the deck
were charred abmt an inch deep for a
length of seven 'eel, and the main royal
mast of a ship lying about a quarter of a
mile astern was troken off, though wheth
er by the same ttroke he could not tell.
When the deck was repaired my father
kept the charred portions, ami he still has
them to show to anyone whodoubts his
The ship that was struck by the light
Ding had no conductors on her masts.
Most ships now hive them. In the ship on
which I served my time we had a platinum
rod on each truclc, with wire conductors
passing through class insulators down the
backstays. On tl e least sign of thnnder
the ends of these wires were thrown over
the side. On dark nights, when there was
any lightning flashing, the points of the
platinum rods u-ied to have a blue light
glimmering on them, and the effect was
very weird and uncanny. London Tit

luaects Have Thouaanda of Eyes.
The eyes of insects present several pecu
liarities. Often iti the same individual we
shall find two sets of eyes, the simple and
the compound, these latter having a large
number of minuto hexagonal facets, each
of which is in re ility a cornea; and the
marvel is that every single facet belongs
to a distinct eye vith pupil, iris, lens, all
complete. The n traber of these corneas
varies very consic erably. While the ant
possesses fifty only, the ordinary house fly
has 4,000, butterflies have no fewer than
17,000 and some b-etles rejoice in as many
as 25,000. Chambers' Journal.

There ia a theory that finds
indorsement in some medical
quarters, that general epide
mics are caused by the earth,
while circling through the re
alms of space coming in con
tact with 8tar Dust. The at
mosphere is thus filled with mi
nute grms that effect every
one unpleasantly. The idea is
probably more fanciful than
real. But it shows that most
of these epidemics reach the
human system through the re
spiratory organs and that if we
