BETTER THAN AN ALARM CLOCK.
A Device for Being Waked Up Thmt Is
In Use Among Mexican Runner.
"I don't know w bat I'd do without my
alarm clock," yavned Simpkins at the
boarding houso Dr 'akfast table. "It's hard
to get any fun out of your evenings unless
you stay up until nearly midnight, and
that means 1 o'cli ok before you really get
to sleep. As my employer insists on my
being behind the counter at 8 a. m., that
means waking up at C. You can't get the
chambermaid to wake you every morning
without a ennsidr able outlay of tips, and
It would take a pretty mnacalar girl any
way to pound on 1 iv door hard enough and
long enough to wl ke me effectually. Xow,
my alarm clock makes it simply impossi
ble for me to sleep, for it kicks up such an
awful row that I 1 ave to jump out of bed
and stop it in sel: defense before it gets
half through the performance," and Srmp
kins smiled the fntuous smile of the man
who never discovt rs that he is a nuisance.
'Yes, we've all noticed that," said a
stout commercial traveler, who, when he
was at home at all, did not get up gener
ally for full an h ur after Simpkins did.
"I could recommend to you an alarm clock
which would nroi:se you just as effectually
as the one you 1 ave now, and yet would
not wake up ever . body else within a quar
ter of a mile of y u. The last time I was
down in Mexico I left the lines of railroad
and pushed out into the wilder parts of
the country, in tiie interests of my firm.
There I met for the first time someof those
famous couriers, Indians, who carry mes
sages for hundreds of miles with much
greater celerity than horses can do in that
mountainous con ltry.
"These wiry an I hardy fellows will run
all day without t nim; apparently, but even
then they could DOt outrun a horse on a de
cent road. The way they get ahead of a
mounted courier is by cutting off the cor
ners. Most bf the roads there either lead
up hill or down, mil the hills are so steep
that the trail idgragH back and forth
across the face o: the mountains in a suc
cession of terraces. Ahorse must follow
the path; a fix t runner saves many a
mile by scram b ing from one terrace to
the other, aiding himself by trees, roots or
stones if he is as'-ending, and just letting
himself slide if ha is coming down.
"But I started to tell you about the
never failing alarm clocks which they
carry with them on long journeys. When
the courier's trip extends over three or
four days, as it requently does, he allows
himself two hours' sleep out of every twenty-four,
and as te makes his bed on the
ground, just whi revet he happens to stop,
there is no chari bermaid or anybody else
to rouse him from the heavy stupor which
naturally overcomes a perfectly healthy
man who has teen running steadily for
about twenty-two hours, eating occasion
ally while he runs.
"Having selected his bed, he takes some
thick cord from his pouch, cuts off a piece of
it of a length which experience has taught
him to be about right, ties one end of the
cord, which is ;omposed of carefully se
lected material prepared in a particular
way, to his too, Beta fire to the other end,
and falls asleep K quickly that you would
think he was cot structed like one of those
mechanical doll.- which close their eyes as
soon as they are laid down. He feels per
fectly confident hat the cord or fuse will
burn slowly but surely up to his toe in two
hours or thereat outs, and be has no doubt
that when the twist of it which he put
around the toe i i on fire it will wake him
effectually." New York Tribune.
The sh ister Chameleon.
One of the cl ameleous, which had been
a long while in a cage, had become so en
tirely the color of the wood that it was not
easy to distinguish it l placed it among
plants and on tl e grass, but it did not turn
green again, and then 1 left it on a vase of
flowers, in the center of which I placed a
tall, stiff spray. Soou the creature found
its way to the .-ery summit, and there it
remained 1 "as s ill as death," until a fly
happened that .'ay; then there was a very
slight movement, a click was heard, and
the chameleon resumed its silent obsirva
tions as if no flj had been swallowed.
There is something cunning and weird,
almost sinister in the expression of that
very small eye la the center or apex of its
mobile globe, tow turned upward, now
downward, one eye forward, the other back
ward, so quietly yet so watchfully, rarely
the two eyes lo. iking the same way. The
chameleon mast surely be endowed with
duality of brail . for it certainly must take
in two ideas at nice through its two eyes,
or why should it move both so ceaselessly
in contrary dirictions? Motionless is the
animal hour after hour, the eye being the
only sign of Ufa it displays. The one at
the top of a spr ty in the vase of flowers re
mained in the s line position day after day,
only throwing out Us tongue to catch a fly
when one flew by. and otherwise moving
only its ever estless eyes. Cor. Forest
Do A 11 1 1) ills Commit Suicide?
There is a stf ry of a poor cat, deprived of
her kittens, who hanged herself in the fork
of a branch. I ut this may have been an
accident; we si ould have given the cat the
benefit of the doubt. News comes of a dug
which commit cd suicide. His master de
clined to take 1 im out to shoot rabbits, and
the dog went and drowned himself in a
pond. The story is true, but Australian,
and the dog m ty have merely exhibited an
extreme form of colonial sensitiveness. If
weonce admit .hat a dog may reason on life
and death (not being a mad dog), and exer
cise a hasty but rational choice, it is plain
that the whole system of ethics will have
to be altered.
The poor In lian may be right about the
equal sky, wl ich is a poor prospect for
people who nro not fond of dogs. The
ghosts of dog ; have been seen, and are as
well vouched :'or as any others; so, on the
whole, the po ft Indian may be less un
tutored than t ic poet imagined. Andrew
Lang in Ixngi tan's Magazine.
T me's Changes.
Mr. Harry I urniss, the well known par
liamentary caricaturist, relates that on
one occasion a man came to a friend of his,
and asked hin to paint a portrait of his
father, who is dead.
"But, my dear sir," said the artist, "I
never saw you r fattier. Have you a photo
graph of him! '
"No," said tile man, "I have not, but you
never saw Mo ,es, and yet you have a pic
ture of him ol your walls."
The argiim. ut was unanswerable and
the artist accepted the commission. When
the picture wi s finished the man came to
see it, and gazed at it with tears in his
eyes and said:
"Dear me, i:. that father? How he haa
changed?" L mdon Tit-Bits.

taken with a bad cold, which settled on
