Oddities WUlclx Count For nd Aprulu't Uuod lloraeflcali. A certain resident of one of the bet ter known New York hotels has ac quired the habit of feeding lumps of sugur to the cab horses that rog-ularly staoid in front of the house while their ilrivers wait for fares, says an exchange. 3o long1 has he practiced this that he Is personally known tuid loved by ivery one of the cab horses in the ho tel stables. One day he forgot to feed a certain horse, but incautiously ihowed himself in the (billiurd room, icar the door, whereat the horse calm ly started to walk in among the cue handlers for the sugar and was pre vented from making a complete en trance only by the faot that the cab wheels were too wide to pass the door. Buyers of horses for cavalry purposes tlways look to see. if tho animals of fered have hoofs "toeing- in" or "toe ing out." Both, aro rejected in favor of liorses with toes pointing straight lhead. Horse flesh is said to have been prized or food long before horses were used is man's assistants in war, the chase md the industries. It was one of tho Pharaohs of ancient Egypt, according to tradition, who taught man to train md make uso of horses. The first "rest home" and hospital for broken down horses was founded Uy an Englishwoman, at Sudbury, near narrow. Thero poor men who earn their living largely by tho use of their horses can leave the animals when they Ibecome broken from overwork, re claiming them when their health has been restored by rest and proper treat ment. So successful was this esta.l Ushment from the date of its found ing (in 1838 or 1S67) that early in 1888 mother was put into operation by the same woman, near Willisden, and it bas also proved prosperous and use ful.

As far as talk goes there Is a craze in Hartford ovor the Klondike gold fields. It makes one realize what the gold fever of '49 must havo been. Wherever a knot of men congregate you may be almost certain to hear them discussing the new gold fields. It is said that more than on man has already started from there, bent on seeking his fortune at tho new El Dorado. In front of A. E. Fuller's residence on West street, Litchfield, is a curi osity. Here is a very largo elm tree whoso branches reach out 'fully fifty feet each way from tho trunk. It is about twelve feet from tho ground where the branches begin. Right thero is a thrifty growing currant bush that is grafted into tho tree and to-day is full of rip currants. It was so last year. There is no accumu lation of dirt, neither is tho tree de cayed where the bush starts. The members of the New Britain school board met yesterday afternoon and elected Professor Charles F. Har per of Bridgewater, Mass, principal of tho High school. Mr Harper is 30 years of age. Ho is unmarried, of fine appearance and an excellent tenor singer. He belongs to the Baptist church. Ha was born in Woonsocket, R.. I., where he attended the public high schools, after which ho entered Brown university, working his way through this institution.

For sale by Apothecaries Hall C4 TEACHING BY PHONOGRAPH. !(orel &chcn of a Tier York Prof eaa or of Laugaigea to Save Labor. The phonograph, which has passed through many commercial vicissitudes, has proved itaelf a most praotical and valuable device in a field originally unthought of. For the last five years a New York professor of languages has taught various tongues by phonograph in all parts of the world, but especially in South Americu and Mexico. He fur nishes a text book, say for Spaniards ta learn English, arranged in 20 lessons. These lessons are also given in his owa voice on 20 cylinders. Accompanying these transcribed cylinders are 20 blank ones. The graphophono, which is a variation of the phonograph, is found a convenient instrument to send to the pupil. There is also 6cnt a cylinder containing a lesson in, any language, with a chapter or scene from a comedy, or a novel, or with a song or a ballad. Blank cylinders for the return mes-, feages or recitations cost 20 cents apiece.1 Tho pupil, thus equipped, opens tho ool at the iiret lesson, put the tune into bis ears and starts the mochina slowly. Ho repeats this practice on, any passage, again and again, more and more rapidly, until ho is thoroughly familiar with every Intonation and ac cent. Having in this way mastered tho first lesson he puts one of the blank cylinders in the machine and answers the questions of theleeson. This cylin der, inclosed in a little box, goes back to the teacher, who, with a stenog rapher by his side, listens to the recita tion and dictates his corrections and criticism. Tho letter and cylinder go back to tho pupil, who compares his own utterances with tho original cyl inder at the points indicated in the teacher's letter and is enabled to tell wherein his defect lies and how to euro it. Over 1,000 phonographs have been sold for this purpose. Its immense vul u as a teacher lies in the fact that it never wearies and will go oa repeating tho same passages either with tho 6a.ino or varied intonation for thou sands of times, if necessary, bo that tho pupil can learn by assiduous practice to reproduce tho finest ehads of in flection and thus acquire a purity of accent that could only be otherwise attained by long residence in the coun try where the language is spoken. An extension of this idea, which has al ready taken shape, is the giving of vo cal lessons by phonograph. This, how ever, is a much more complex matter, and it is doubtful whether it can bo made more than a qualified success. Ono of the moet vital things in singing is color, and this is just what most phonographs fail to reproduce. II an instrument coa bo made that can be re lied upon to do this tho burden of vocal teaching can bo greatly lightened, and American students of singing can en joy a European course of tuition with out needing to cross the ocean for it- Tittsburffh Dispatch.

"1 wish you would send u a poker table," said a resident of a little town in the north Louisiana overflow to a visitor whom he supposed to bo in some way connected with the distribution, oi government rations to the flood suffer ers. "Hero we are playing around this darned old dry goods box, and I'm los ing right along; but if I eould sit at a table and got my logs under it you ought to see me win." "What good would that do you?" "Well, I don't exactly know; I never held out a card in all my life, and I'd sooner go broke a thousand times than raise a hand from under the tabic; but somehow I neveij caQ hold good cards when I've got to sit twisted around like this with my knees rubbing up against the Bide of this blamed old box. You see, the long and short of it is, we're flood sufferers, and we're suffering for a poker table. Just you send it, and don't ask offensive personal questions that might reflect on a gentleman's play." N. O. Times-Democrat. Two Long Relgna. This year Queen Victoria celebrates the sixtieth anniversary of her acces sion to the throne of Great Britain and Ireland. Next year Emperor Francis Joseph of Austria-Hungary Is to cele brate the fiftieth anniversary of his ac cession to Imperial authority. It 1b an nounced that one feature of the Aus trian celebration will be the formal coronation of the emperor as king of Bohemia. This course is contemplated out of deferenoe to the feeling of the people of that important province, who have long desired that it be given the dicnity of separate recognition. BROOKLYN BRIEFS The new officers of the St Thomas Cadets Athletic club were installed last night with appropriate ceremonies. The exercises were followed by the rendition of an interesting musical and literarv nmerammc. Prccirinnt r t. Lynch acted as toastmaster and opened the festivities with an address ia which he outlined the future policy of, the association. Ha was followed by Frank Farrell, Joseph Kennedy, Tim othy Foley, M. Le Clair and Louis Du chasne, all of whom sang with good effect. There was excellent clog danc ing by Jeremiah and Daniel Sullivan, and M. Sullivan performed some mar velous feats in buck and wing dancing; William Reilly rendered a solo in a creditable manner and W. J. Shanna han was heard to good advantage in a recitation. It was the most interest ing session held by the society since Its organization and the members intend to hold such sessions once or twice every month. , Superintendent Relley baa a large force of men at work clearing up Bank street to-day and they are finding lota to do removing tho sand bank at the corner of Riverside and Bank streets. The damage done to private property at this point Is considerable. D. J. Ma haney said this morning that he has decided to sue the city and that when he makes out his bill it will not be a small one. The Guilfoiles and the Wa terbury Drug Co were also badly drenched. In the latter place it wilt take some time before the amount of the darage can be determined. The cellar is still filled with water and nothing can be done towarids taking inventory of the damaged stock. Alfc the residents whose property was dam aged believe that someone should make good their loss and if ail of them should decide to sue the city it would be impossible to tell where the thing will end. The owners of land on Town Plot are making the boast that their, property was not injured by the storm, that is quite true, perhaps, but this is very poor compensation for peoplei whoso property was gullied on account of the unusual rush of water from that territory. Everybody knows that the open streets furnished an unobstructed passazewar for the water and sent it down the hill in larger quantities and with greater momentum than ever be fore. While it may not be fair to blanjo anyone for the antics of the ele ments, still the cause of the additional; damage on this occasion Is plain to all observers and an effort should be made, to avoid a repetition of it. WHAT DO THE CHILDREN DRINK? Don't give them tea or coffee. Have you tried the new food drink called Grain-O? It is delicious and nourish--ing and takes the place of coffee. The more Grain-O you give the children, the more health you distribute through, their systems. Grain-O is made of pure grains, and when properly pre pared tastes like the choice grades of coffee, but costs about M. as much. AU grocers sell it, 15c and 25c.
