A Ticklish Place to Visit.
On the steamer wharf of Algiers stran
gers are besieged by the native beast ped
dlers extolling in broken French the mer
its of their tame baboons, jackals, monk
eys and yonog lions. In the outskirts of
the Casbah, or hill suburb, there are regu
lar beast farms, where lions and leopards
by dozens of pairs are kept for breeding
purposes. The traveliug agent of the
famous Hagenbeck sale menagerie, in Al
tona, near Hamburg, gives an amusing ac
count of a visit to one of these zoological
stock farms, where strangers need a guide
to avoid an encounter with the sideshow
pets running loose in all directions and
rearing their young in nil sorts of unex
pected places: "Don't stir that brush
pile," said the ".gent's cicerone; "there's a
pair of porcupines in thsre and they might
scare- you if they start up all of a sudden.
Xot too far that way, either, " he inter
posed, seeing the visicor trying to make a
detour to the left; "the old he baboon
makes that crib his heuilcmarters and
might tear your coat to pieces," and so on
till they reached the lion kennels, a series of
grottoes excavate! from a ledge of porous
limestone and secured ra front with Bhort
"How do you keep those youngsters
from running away altogether?" inquired
the agent, stepping lmck to rid himself of
two baby lions that had squeezed through
the bars and were tugging away at his
"Oh, you couldn't drive them away,"
laughed the proprietor, an old Arab en
gaged in cleaning the dens by means of a
long handled hoe. '"They play ail over the
yard in the evening, but come back of their
own accord as soon as the night gets a lit
"Some of your lwiarders seem to feel
quite at home," said the visitor, pointing
to a huge male lion that had turned over
on his back and was playing with a stick
and a fragment of a skull bone.
. "Yes, they are taking it easy enough,"
said the old Arab, "only on stormy nights
I notice that they get restless and push
about the bars as if they were trying to
find a way out. It is the time when their
relations in the wilderness are doing most
of their business. San Francisco Chron
icle. The "Teeth" on Kazor'a Kflge.
The edge of a razor consists of innumer
able points or "teeth," which if the razor
is of good material follow each other
throughout its whole length with great
order and clearness. The unbroken regular
ity of these minute "teeth," goes to make
up the blade's excessive keenness. The
edge acts upon the beard not so much by
the direct application of weight or force as
it does by a slight "seesaw" movement,
which causes the successive "teeth" to act
rapidly on one certain part of t he hairy
growth. The best razors, according to the
microscopists, have the teeth of their edges
set as regularly as those of a perfectly set
This explains the magic effect of hot
water on the razor's Made the act of dip
ping it thoroughly cleansing the teeth of
any greasy or dirty substance with which
they may have 1hv:i clogged. I5arlers
often claim that razors "get tired" of shav
ing ami that they will he all right after
awhMe if permitted to take a rest. When
in this "tired" condition a microscopic ex
amination of the edge shows that constant
stropping by the same persou has caused
the teeth or libers of the edge to all ar
runt'M themselves in one direction. A
month of disuse causes these line particles
to rearrange themselves so that they again
present the heterogeneous, saw toothed
edge. After this little recreation each par
ticle of the line edge is up and ready to
support his fellow, and it again takes some
time to spoil the grain of the blade. St.
Art ami Sign 1'uiiitlngr.
In Kurope old signs and signljoards have
proved an attractive R' bjet t for more than
ne author, but in our rapidly growing
country we hardly find the material for
such antiquarian studies. Yet even our
essentially modern signs may Imj found in
teresting in many respects. The changing
styles, variation of materials used, the
identification of certain styles of signs
with certain kinds of business, queer com
binations of names and ludicrous blunders,
and. to a certain extent, even t he individ
uality of the sign painter all this and
more, too, may 1m uoticed by those inter
ested in the subject.
As to the matter of real artistic talent
as shown in t he painting of signs, it is in
teresting to note t hat we find in the annals
of art not a few cases of artists who were
compelled through circumstances to take
to this "branch of art" ut least temporari
ly. In former times artists even in such
work probably found a certain scope for
the exercise of their abilities. A few such
cases occur in the history of American art,
the best known being Matthew Pratt, of
Philadelphia, well known in his day as a
portrait painter, who, having a family to
support, honestly turned his hand in in
tervals of leisure to the production of tav
ern signs and banners for political conven
tions. New York Times.
Working lo m Specialty.
A stage heroine, who happened at the
same time to be an able executant on the
piano, had to play night after night the
same part at a popular theater. She anx
iously longed to give the audience a speci
men of her musical abilities, but her part
in the performance afforded no opportunity
for such a display of her powers.
Her inventive genius came to the rescue,
and she discovered a place in the action
where pianist and heroine might go hand
in hand. When the curtain rose, revealing
the desert of the Black mountains, the
spectators beheld to their astonishment a
splendid grand piano placed at the foot of
The heroine, with the haste of one who is
pursued, climbed down the rocky path,
stopped enraptured at the sight of the
piano and exclaimed:
"The savages have burned down our cot
tage, murdered my father and mother and
driven away our cattle, but heaven be
praised they have left me piy piano! Music
shall comfort me in my distress,-and if the
ladies and gentlemen will permit, I will
play them a short selection." London Tit
bits. An Invitation to Dinner.
Chorley was profuse in his invitations to
dinner at his own house, but occasionally
his stream of dinners would cease, though
he never consented to abdicate altogether
the position of Amphitryon. For instance,
he would meet you in June and say to yon,
"I have quite made tip my mind to have a
little dinner on Gny Fawkes Day; will you
come" And through all these interven
ing months Chorley would never meet you
without - reminding yon that yon were en
gaged to him for the 5th of November.
This became a standing' joke among his
intimates, and any proposal to fix a festiv
ity a long way ahead was at once checked
by.VXoQay Fawkes invitation." Corn hill

who has proven that this habit arises
