A Cackling Hen
May be excused from making an aV
fully bit; racket over a mighty little egg;
but when f-he cackles lor an hour over a
China door knob it is time to throw a
brick at her. There is also some excuse
for a merchant cackling a good deal over
A 'GENUINE BARGAIN.
but when the so called bargain turns out
to be a doom knob bargain, it is time
somehody threw a brick or a "shoo" at
the noisy thing. There's an awful lot of
cackling about bargains going on, out
we'll bet thev'er all door-knob bargains,
so here goes our brick; we'll meet any
price, show better quality for the same
money, and do as well it not better Dy

Rapid Timed, laying-.
An act of congress Allowed the Central
Pacific to build Irs line eastward until it
met that of the Union Pacific.
Inasmuch as every mile of road brought
with it a subsidy in bonds and land from
the United States, there was a race be
tween the two roads. As the tracks neared
each other the pace became rapid. The
Union company laid a little over four
miles in one day. Soon afterward the
Central company completed six miles in a
aay. llie Union company excelled that
feat by laying eixht miles.
Mr. Charles Crocker, who was pushing
forward the Central, said, ''We'll take off
our coats and beat them, but we won't
try It until we are so close that they won't
have a chance to get back at us." When
the Central approached within fourteen
miles of the Union the final straggle be
gan. "We are going to lay ten miles of track
In one day; you can make up your mind to
that," said. Mr. Crocker to his foreman,
who had expressed doubts of the possibil
ity of utilizing men enough to do the work.
"I have been thinking the matter over
for a fortnight, and I know what I am
about. Each trainload will contain ma
terials enough for two miles. As soon as
one train has dropped its load, forward
the rails as fast as the men can carry
them. Then bring up and unload another
"Have your men in readiness for spik
ing. Let the first man drive in only one
particular spike, and pass on from one
rail to another; let the man who follows
him drive in the second spike on the same
rail, and so on. See that you have enough
spikes on hand, so that no man stops for
an instant or passes another man. Then
let the straightcners follow, and see that
they advance without stop or hitch. Close
on their heels, but not so close as to inter
fere, bring forward the levelers and fill
ers." Mr. Bancroft, who describes the scene
in "Chronicles of the Builders," quotes an
eyewitness, a general efficer.
"It was," paid he, "as if an army
marched over the ground and left behind
it a railroad finished. I rode beside the
workmen, and at times the track was laid
as fast as my horse could walk."
Ten miles and 1S5 feet additional were
laid in that aay of days in the history of
It is amusing to watch the attempt of
many aspiring artists to cover the defects
of bad drawing. Some will put a bunch of
flowers at the throat of a subject to hide an
ill drawn neck, or hide a horse's feet, or
lower legs in long grass. But Washington
has one lady artist who is above these
things. It would seem that clouds are be
yond her skill, and in one rather imposing
picture by this genius they are represented
by a rather peculiar looking white space.
Her explanation was, to say the least, In
genious. She said:
You know whenever I paint I have a
vision of what my picture should be when
It is finished. When I have these visions
I must not lie disturbed or they will flee
like the mountain mist. I commenced t his
painting you see on the easel while in Paris.
One day I decided to give a dinner party to
some of my art 1st friends, and on the morn
ing of that very day I felt that my vision
was at hand. I at once, gave orders to my
servants alxnt the dinner, gave positive
commands that on no account should I le
disturbed and then locked myself in my
studio. Soon after the vision came. Ah,
but it was beautiful! I could see the bright
rays of the sun shining through some little
fleecy clouds, touching all of the landscape
with glorious softness.
Could I but catch it I would be famous.
I seized my palette and plunged into my
work, gathering new inspiration each mo
ment. I had all but finished. Only the
clouds were left, when, to my horror, I
heard a knock at my door. I paid no at
tention to it, but it was repeated again
and again till at last I was compelled to
cry, "Who is there?" It was the cook,
who had come to tell me that the cream
was sour. "Fool!" I cried, "why did you
disturb me for such a trifle! Buy more
cream!" The woman left, and I turned
back to my work, but the vision was gone.
Never again have I been able to recall it,
and that is why my clouds are still unfin
ished. Washington Herald.
How a 'ewstoy Collected a Bill.
There is a south side boy who is bound
to be a Napoleon in finance if he lives,
nis age is fourteen, and a little while ago
he ran a newspaper route. A certain Bouth
side doctor was his customer, and when
the physician's bill reached one dollar the
loy presented it. It was hard to collect.
The boy called several times, but the doc
tor never hnd the dollar. The physician
moved away and the lad lost sight of him
for a time, but finally located him on the
west side and renewed his attacks.
At last one day he told his mother he
would make one more effort and then if
that were not successful he would give it
up. Accordingly he went to the doctor's
office and found the doctor out. But in
side of the door hung the customary slate.
On it the boy wrote: "Call at
street. William Smith." The doctor
called and the boy saw him coming up the
street. He told his mother what he had
done, and said: "Now, I will go and hide
and you can show him the bill." "I will
do nothing of the kind, Willie Smith,"
said the lady, "and you ought to be
ashamed of yourself." A young lady
visitor in the family thought more of the
scheme and, confronting the doctor at the
door, presented the bill. The professional
man said that the joke was on him, paid
the dollar and went away laughing.

Has Its Teeth In Its Stomach.
There is a curious snake (Hydracl yeti)
in South Africa that lives wholly npon
birds' eggs. It has no teeth or signs of
teeth in the mouth, its whole dental array
being located in the stomach. Buckland
says that they are not true teeth, but that
they serve all purposes. They grow from
the center of each vertebra. They pass
through the walls of the stomach and are
covered with enamel, just like true teeth.
This is nature's provision for breaking
eggs without running the risk of losing
the precious contents, as would be the case
if this egg eating serpent had its teeth in
the proper place. When the egg is safely
inside, the abdominal walls contract and
crush it against that long row of vertebral
teeth. St. Louis Republic.
Vienna is the greatest center for meer
schaum carving, which has attained a very
high artistic development. The raw ma
terial comes in such odd shapes that much
kill is exercised in obtaining from each
piece a pipe that shall be as large and
well shaped as possible. The rough block
is first soaked in water to make it soft,
when it can be cut as readily as cheese.
After the carving is completed the final
polishing is done by women with fine sand
paper and a kind of grass. Interview in
