Sow Indian Tribesmen Succeed In
Escaping tlve Police.
Some of the Indian tribes over which
ire rule give us a great deal of trouble,
notably thc Mahsuds. The Mahsuds,
however, are not by any means the
worst of the Indian robber tribes, the
unenviable distinction probably falling
to the Bhils;, who are. the cleverest
.conndrels iii the world, both in their
methods of acquiring other people's
property and in evading pursuit.
They are very proud of their skill in
pilfering and openly boast of it One
of them once told a British officer that
be could steal the blanket from under
Mm and was promptly challenged to
show his ability. That night when the
officer was fast asleep the Bhil robber
cut a hole in bis tent, crept noiselessly
in and gently tickled the hands and
feet of the sleeping man. The officer
stirred uneasily and turned over. In
tids way the Bhil was able to pull the
blanket out a little way. By repeating
Ms performance he finally succeeded
Sn "coaxing" the blanket completely
from under the sleeper.
When engaged in his nefarious little
?ames, the Bhil, ? wears hardly any
clothing, and his Hine body is rubbed
with oil to facilitate escape from any
would be captors. When hotly pursued
by the British troops, the robbers make
use of a very clever device. They con?
ceal their scant clothing under their
small round shields and scatter them
about to resemble stones or bowlders;
tben, picking up a few twigs-if there
' are any to oe had-they assume all
sorts of grotesque attitudes, their al?
most fleshless limbs silhouetted against
the dark night sky closely resembling
the charred limbs of a tree. Absolute?
ly motionless, they hold their positions
till the enemy has passed them.
In this way a British subaltern in
charge of a party sent to capture some
Bbl Is was considerably startled one
evening. The pursuit had completely
j lost sight of the robbers, and finally
the party drew rein by a clump of
gnarled and bent tree trunks, tired and
bot from their hard exertions. The of?
ficer in charge took off his hat and
placed it on the end of a broken limb,
when instantly there was a wild scream
of laughter, and the tree trunks sud?
denly came*to life and vanished in the
-HARD TO GET STARTED.
Thins* Which Overcome a Writer
When Beginning1 an Article.
There is a feeling of timidity that
oftentimes overcomes a writer when
beginning an article. As in writing a
letter, it is getting started that puzzles.
It is the custom to begin with slow
_ moving piston and work gradually into
full speed until the flow of words is
free, and then the difficulty with some
of us is to find the brake valve., Again,
a writer sometimes discovers that his
beginning is a more fitting ending, and
vice versa. The newspaper style is to
throw general conclusions up strong j
under the headlines, while the sermon
izer reserves them until his final cli?
Thackeray remarked once that he
could never tell exactly what he was
going to say until his pen was in hand
and under motion and then did not fully
realize just what he was saying until it
was written. There is a subconscious?
ness that shapes writing as it does
speaking. This, I know, distuibs some
well known theories of speaking and
writing-as to weighing everything and
then measuring it out as a druggist
. .compounds a prescription-but my ob?
servations ?wre that the preparation ls

The Congressional Record.
To appreciate the value of The Con?
gressional Record one must see it used.
It is the only means by which members
themselves keep informed of the prog?
ress of legislation when scores of
measures are often considered in a
uay. It: is on the desk of the president
of the United States and is read by
every executive officer, from cabinet to
chief of divisiou. Every government

of such a publication, forming at once

Cigars and Tobacco.
There are between 1,500.000 and
2,000.000 brands of cigars sold in this
country, and your average smoker
thinks that every brand means a differ?
ent kind of tobacco. As a matter of
fact 150 is an outside estimate of the
different kinds of tobacco that can be
procured from all sources, and even ex?
perts can't tell some of these apart.

MAKING BONELESS HAMS.
Housekeepers May Do It as Well as a
Little though one may think, the
process or naking a boneless ham is
quite a fine art and one that requires
no small degree of skill in the under?
taking. In fact, it is not every one
who can "bone" a ham successfully.
In xhe event a housekeeper unfamiliar
with the art of removing the bone
from hams were to undertake the job
j she would be almost certain to begin
j operations by first of all splitting the
j ham open and endeavoring to carve out
the bone by cutting around it. The re
; suit would be failure and vexation of
the worst sort, to say nothing of a ruin?
ed ham. The proper way to remove
the bone would never suggest itself to
the average housekeeper.
The operator stands the ham on end
against a supporting block and pro?
ceeds io carve around the bone from
one end as deep as it is possible for
him to run his hand and knife down
into the flesh and around the bone.
Having reached the extreme limit (as
far, in fact, as it is possible to extend
the knife), he reverses the ham and
begins cutting around the bone from
the other end, cutting downward until
he reaches the point that he attained
in cutting from the end on which he
began, the entire operation being sci?
entifically correct and on the principle
ol' skinning an animal The bone then
slips out clear and smooth, free from
any adhering flesh.
As soon as this is done stout twine is
wrapped around the ham and drawn
tact, completely closing the aperture
left by the removal of the bone. The
twine Is thus made fast and the ham
laid away for a day or two, at the end
*>f which time the hole has closed so
neatly that in slicing the ham, it is
difficult to determine the exact spot j
from which the bone was removed.
This is the proper mode of making
boneless ham, and with a little prac?
tice any housekeeper can leam to do
the work as well as a - prof essional
butcher. They witt observe that first (
of all the bone is surrounded by a tis?
sue, and by starting the operation from
the ends they will be surprised with j
what facility this tissue, dividing the j
bone from the flesh, peels loose from
Curious Old Custom.
In one cf the suburbs of Paris a
wealthy merchant died the other day,
and on the evening of the funeral his
neighbors witnessed a curious cere?
An hour before the body was to be
taken to the cemetery the relatives of
the dead man, five or six in number,
went out into the garden adjoining the
house and walked solemnly and silent?
ly around it. Each carried a lantern
and kept his eyes fixed on the ground,
as though he were looking for some?
thing. Finally they all halted in front
of a large pile of' stones and, laying
aside their lanterns, proceeded to throw
down the pile. After every stone had
been removed they examined minutely
the spot on which the pile had rested
and then slowly and with bowed heads
returned to the house.
This is an old Norman custom, and it
is observed in this instance because the
dead man was a native of G ison. There
is a tradition in Normandy that before
burying a body all the ground around
his dwelling should be searched in or?
der to make sure that the soul has not
hidden itself somewhere. At one time
every family in Normandy faithfully
observed this tradition, but now only a
few pay heed to it.
The Year ISSI.
The year ISSI was a chronological
oddity of the oddest kind, besides being
a mathematical curiosity seldom equal?
ed. From right to left and left to right
it reads the same. Eighteen divided
by 2 gives 9 as a quotient: SI ^divided
oy 9 gives 9; if divided by 9, tue quo?
tient contains a 9; if multiplied by 9.
the product contains two 9s; 1 and S
are 9; 8 and 1 are 9. If the IS be placed
under the SI and added, the sum is 99.
If the figures be added thus-1. S, 8, 1
-it will give IS as the result. Reading
to the middle from right to left or
from left to right it is IS, and IS is
two-ninths of 81. By adding, dividing
and multiplying ten 9s are produced,
being one 9 for each year to the begin?
ning cf the I?.st decade of the nine?
No wonder the fortune tellers, the as?
trologers and the mathematicians
weave so many strange fancies around
that curious combination of figures. It
may have been what induced Mother
Shipton to end her prophetic jingle
with, "And at last the world to an end
shall come in- eighteen hundred and
A Wonder In Penmanship.
Among the curiosities preserved by
the Minnesota Historical society is a
lithographed copy of an engrossment
of the emancipation proclamation. The
engrosser, one W. H. Fratt of Daven?
port. Ia.. was so very skillful in* his
manipulations of the pen that he suc?
ceeded, by careful and exact shading
of the letters, in producing a very ex?
cellent portrait of Al'rah:: in Lincoln,
the author of the famous document, in
the center of the copy. In other words,
the lettering itself is made to form a
portrait of Mr. Lincoln. There were
probably a large number of them orig?
inally struck off. but copies of it are
now very rare. As a specimen of pen
work it is certainly very unique.
Wood In Ksryptian Stonework.
Probably the oldest timber in the
world which has been subjected to the
use of man is that found in the ancient
temples of Egypt in connection with
the stonework, which is known to be
at least 4.000 years old. This, the only
wood used in the construction of the
temples, is in the form of ties holding
the end of one stone to another. When
two blocks were laid in place, an ex?
cavation about an inch deep was made
in each block, in which a tie shaped
like an hourglass is driven. It is there?
fore very difficult to force any stone
from its position.
A CURE AND A FEE.
Peculiar Experience of a Doctc
With n Business Ma?.
In conversation one day -i,out the
i peculiar views that commercial men
sometimes entertain about professional
j services Dr. S. Weir Mitchell told uie
j following story:
"A very wealthy man from the west
came to consult me about an attack of
vertigo. He said that he had just re?
turned from a trip to Europe, where
he had consulted eminent specialists,
but that they had failed to alford him
any permanent relief. *A physician in
London.' he said, "asked me why I did
not make an attempt to be cured near?
er home. I thought on my way out
west I would stop over to see you.'
" 'Has any physician you have visit?
ed looked into your ears?' I asked.
" 'No,' was his reply.
"I made an examination of his ears,
removed some wax and a substance
that appeared to be hardened remnants
of cotton wool. I sent him away then
and told him to come again iu a day
or two. He did so. \
" 'Well.' he exclaimed. 'I am cured,
i How much do I owe you?'
" 'About $50.' I replied.
"As he drew a check he asked. 'Did
you know when you first examined my
ears that you could cure me?'*
"When I told him that I had a very
fair conviction that ! could, he said:
'Well, you are a blanked fool. You
should have said to me: "I think i can
cure you. and I will do so for $10.000.
No cure, no pay." You would have
got your money without a murmur.*
** *Oh.' I said. *if you feel that way
about it there are several little chari?
ties in which I am interested, and'
" 'No. no.' he interrupted, that is not
business. 1 have my cure, and you
have the price 3*ou asked. The trans?
action is closed.' "
Brass In England In Chaucer's Time.
A metal resembling brass, but said
to have been superior in quality, was
known in England as "maslin" as early
as the time of Chaucer, and in the
reign of Henry VIII, an act of parlia?
ment was passed prohibiting the ex?
port of brass out of England. Whether
the earlier monumental brasses still to
be found in our churches were made
originally in England is not absolutely
certain, the probability, according tc
some antiquaries, being that they were
of French or Belgian workmanship.
An Urgent Case.
When the doctor's telephone rang
late one night, he went to the instru?
ment himself and received an urgent
appeal from two fellow practitioners
to come down to the club for a quiet
"Emily, dear," he said, turning to his
wife, "I am called out again, and it ap?
pears to be a very serious case, for
there are two doctors already in at?
tendance."-New York Times.

Cheap at the Price.
A certain pompous and officious judge
in a western town had just fined a
young lawyer $10 for contempt of
court. After it had been paid a grave
old attorney walked up to the bench
and laid down a ten dollar goldpiece.
"What is that for?" asked the judge.
"For contempt, your honor," was the
