A NIGHT IX AHR0U1.
AN IMPROVISED NIGHTGOWN THAI
CAUSED A SENSATION.
A Truthful Drummer's Experiene la a
Strange Hotel Where Xobody Seemed
to Know Anything; About Him A Mis
take That Has Proved Costly.
"I shall never forget my first experience
at Toledo," said Max Schener, a Sew York
drummer, last night at Charlie Kern's.
"It occurred a half dozen years ago. I
had just started out upon the road and
was about as green a youngster as ever at
tempted to capture business. Late one
afternoon I left Cleveland for Toledo. On
the train I struck up an acquaintance with
a young chap who was t raveling for an un
dertakers' supply house, and we soon grew
quite chummy and formed a sort of travel
ing partnership while our . routes would
permit us to be together.
"Arriving at Toledo at midnight we
Went to the Island House, a hotel which
was virtually ain extension of the depot.
Throwing my grip over the counter I wrote
my name in big letters on the register and
asked for a double room. The clerk, after
a good deal of circumlocution, finally told
us that he could not give us a double room,
or a single room, or aoy room at all, as the
hotel was filled clear to the eaves and the
dining room was full of cots.
"I felt pretty hot under the collar just
then to think that we had wasted consid
erable time, aud improved the opportunity
to say a few emphatic things to the young
nincompoop who had kept us waiting.
Then we started out to find another hotel.
It was so lat that we could get no convey
ance, and so we trudged along block after
block until at last we reached the Boody
House, tired oat and in anything but a
good humor. We immediately registered
and were assigned a good double room".
"I sat down on the edge of the bed,
pulled off my shoes and proceeded to tin-:
dress. Suddenly I jumped up with an ex
clamation. " 'What's the matter,' asked my com
panion. " 'My valise. I must have left it at the
Island House. I'll swear I had it when I
left the train.'
' 'Well, go to sleep. You can go over in
the morning and look it up. Anything of
much value in it?.'
"Xo; only a little clothiug and toilet
outfit. But Tve got a good notion to go
" 'Why not wait till morning?'
" 'It may be too late then. Besides the
grip contained my nightshirt, and I don't
believe I cotild sleep without it.'
" 'I guess I can fit you out in that line if
you aren't too squeamish, he replied.
Whereupon he opened his sample cae,
took out a long, white garment elaborate
ly ruffled and starched stiff and shiny.
"'What do you call that?' I gasped In
" 'What '
" 'A i-hrotid and a mighty good one,
tno. Slip into it and turn in. It may
chantre your luck.' .
"I hesitated. It was late and I was
very tired. A moment later I was inside
the ghn-tly thing and reaify for slumber.
"It was awful. I coulda't sleep. I lay
there and conjured up all sorts of uncanny
scenes. Whenever I dropped into a doze
I awoke with a start, believing that I was
about to 1 buried alive. It was nearly
dayliirht before tired nature succumbed
and I fell asleep.
"When I awoke, the sunlight streaming
through the window showed me that it
was -nearly noon. The room.was full of
people, who were crowded about my bed,
and a big, pompous old fellow was feeling
"I sat bolt upright, rubbed my eye to
be sure that I was not dreaming, and then
shouted, 'What in the name of the greet
horned spoon does this mean?
"A cry went up from the crowd: 'Pshaw!
He's all right
"For answer I jumped out of bed and
grabbed a chair. The way the invaders
hurried out of my room was simply start
ling. Seizing the pompous individual
who had awakened me, I inquired what
the performance signified.
' 'I'm the coroner,'' he said. "I was
summoned a few minutes ago by a call
boy, who said that a stranger had com
mitted suicide in room 13 at the Boody
House. I came over here, and yon know
"My undertaker friend had left the room
early in the UHtniing and the chambermaid
found the door unlocked, entered, and was
horrified to find a corpse (?) laid out ready
for burial. She reported her discovery
and the eoroiKT was summoned. That in
cident has cont me a round $100 if it has
cost me a cent." Chicago Mail.
Io Horses Care for Huniau Heings?
Do horses really care for human beings?
It is probable that no two horsemen will
answer in the same way. Some maintain
that they are affectionate and love their
masters and others are equally certain that
they only care for one another. Phillip
Gilbert Ilamerton, who professes torhave
made a scientific investigation on this
point, declares that horses have no sym
pathy for people and that they do not lore
their masters, but there are plenty of In
telligent people of experience who assert to
the contrary. However this may be there
is no doubt about their strong attachment
to each other. Washington Star.
TIm IHaoovery of the Fork.
Some believe that the fork was in use all
over EurojHS as early as the year 500 A. D.,
but if they were their use and the fork
itself were lost sight of up to about the be
ginning of the Seventeenth century, when
it was either discovered or rediscovered
and popularized. Walton, Weems and
other antiquarians bold to the earlier date,
because a tone vessel containing coins
of the Midd.e Ages aud same iron forks
was found at Scvtngton, England, in the
year 1634. St Louis Republic.
