the president "at least we have anoth

"I have," was the reply, "but I was

The president rolled his cigar round

this unusual neophyte, but the prince
supported his scrutiny with unabashed
"If I had not a deal of experience,"
said the president at last, "I should

I downright like a man, as I do you, sir,
I would rather strain the regulation

The prince and the colonel, one after
the other, were subjected to a long and
particular interrogatory, the prince
alone, but Geraldine in the presence of
the prince, so that the president might

by a trenchant dissimilarity from all

forty, but he looked fully ten years
older, and Florizel thought he had
never seen a man more naturally hid

and ruinous excitements. He was no
more than skin and bone, was partly
paralyzed and wore spectacles,of such
unusual power that his eyes appeared
through the glasses greatly magnified
and distorted in shape. Except the
prince and the president, he was the
only person in the room who preserved
the composure of ordinary life.
There was little decency among the
members of the club. Some boasted of
the disgraceful actions, the conse
quences of which had reduced them to
seek refuge in death, and the others
listened without disapproval. There
was a tacit understanding against mor
al judgments, and whoever passed the
club doors enjoyed already some of the
immunities of the tomb. They drank

compared and developed their different

The functionary explained the Heed

the club, but nevertheless presented
Mr. Hammersmith to Mr. Malthus.
Mr. Malthus looked at the colonel cu

a seat urin his right.
"You are a newcomer," he said, "and
wish information. You have come to
the proper source. It is two years since
I first visited this charming club."
The colonel breathed again If Mr
Malthus had frequented the place for
two years, there could be little danger

Geraldine was none the less astonished
and began to suspect a mystification.

LOST IN HOTELS.
Queer Thing* That Absentmlnded
Guests Forget to Take Away.
Every hotel in New York has a store
room for articles left behind by guests.
It is one of the important departments
of the establishment and often earns
the gratitude of travelers whose un
fortunate habit of forgetting leads
them to look for things that are miss
ing. In hotels a book is kept in which
are jotted down descriptions of arti
cles forgotten. When a hotel does a
large transient business, it is frequent
ly with difficulty that lost articles are
arranged for identification.
The integrity of servants must be
relied upon to a large extent The
chambermaid takes immediate posses
sion of a room upon the guest's de
parture. She picks up anything that
appears to have been left unintention
ally. A note describing the article and
giving the name of the guest, the room
number and the time of departure is
taken to the clerk. The property is
turned over to the housekeeper and by
her to the "lost" department
Said the clerk of one fashionable ho
tel: "I remember a singular case of a
man who didn't respond at once to
the hall boy's call for an early train.
The result was that when he did get
up he had to run. From the station
we got a call on the telephone:
'Hurry to my room,' he shouted,
'and on the table you'll find a very val
uable package. It's my eyes. Send
them to the station.'
"Sure enough, we found two glass
eyes on the dressing table in a plusjti
case^ One was tSe daily use and the
other for an emergency. Guests often
forget their false teeth, but that was
the only case I ever knew of a man
leaving his eyes."
Rings and pins are often found on
the washstand. Valuable pins are
found everywhere, the window cur
tains being a favorite depository.
Watches and revolvers bob out from
under pillows. Of course when the
owner's address is known and any
thing valuable is left he is notified
and the article sent to him. If not
called for in a few months, the forgot
ten article usually becomes the per
quisite of employees. New York
The Mechanism Used In Ancient
Egypt and In China.
A representative piece of mechanism
occurs frequently on the sculptures of
early Egypt. It has the appearance of
and is generally believed to be that of
a portable pump. The hydraulic screw
is also attributed to this people, but
their main reliance seems always to
have been the shadoof, seen every
where along the banks of the Nile, an
invention so simple and so well adapt
ed to their needs that it remains today
substantially the same at it has been
through all the centuries since history
The same may be said regarding the
chain pump in China, an invention the
origin of which antedates the Christian
era. This simple machine, which seems
never to have been improved upon, is
in such common use that every agricul
tural laborer is in possession of one.
Where irrigation is conducted on a lar
ger scale the chain pump is made pro
portionately larger and moved by a
very simple tread wheel, and still lar
ger ones are operated by yoking a buf
falo or other animal to a suitable driv
The application of steam to raising
water is of uncertain origin. Long be
fore the Christian era certain applica
tions of fire to vessels containing wa
ter, by which effects were produced
calculated to astonish ignorant wor
shipers, were practiced by the priests
of Egypt, Greece and Rome, but their
knowledge seems never to have been
turned into any channel of secular use
Repulsed by Bees.
A striking incident of the relief of
Cawnpore was the rout of the Ninth
lancers by a swarm of bees. A village
in the line of march was found to be
defended by a hastily improvised
stockade, on the top of which a num
ber of hives were stuck. Into one of
these a young officer jabbed his sword,
with a result that in far less time than
ft takes to tell it the whole advance
guard was racing for dear life to the
rear, and Sir Hope Grant hastily
formed line of battle, believing it re
