"The favorite horse of the Chinese Emperor Tsi," said a Chinese states man, "died through negligence on the part of the royal master of the horse. The emperor was so enraged at this that he drew his sword and would have run the careless functionary through the body. "But the learned mandarin, Yen tse, struck up the emperor's sword, saying: "'Sire, this man has not yet been formally accused of any crime. He de serves to die, hut his accusation should come first. It Is the law.' "'Well,' said the emperor, 'tell me What he has done.' "'Listen, you rogue,' said the man darin, turning to the trembling master of the horse'listen tp a catalogue,of your heinous offenses. In the first place, you have allowed a horse to perish that his majesty had intrusted to your care. In the second place, it is on your account that the emperor became so exasperated that he was actually on the point of disgracing himself in all his people's eyes by killing a man for the sake of a horse.' 'Enough,' said the emperor, appre ciating the rebuke. 'Let him go. He is pardoned.'" Breaking It Gently. "Laura," said Mr. Ferguson as he buttered a biscuit and passed his cof fee cup for a second filling, "I don't miss anything, but after I had come in last night, about 11:30, I found the house had been broken into. Some body had smashed a pane of glass in a basement window, crawled inside and made his -way up the stairs to the first floor. There hasn't been anything dis turbed in the pantry, the china closet or the sideboard, has there?" "No," answered Mrs. Ferguson. "But, mercy, who could it have been and what do you suppose he wanted?" "I suspect," he rejoined, clearing his throat, "that Ierdid it myself and that I wanted to get inside without disturbing anybody. Yo\i had all gone to bed, and I had left my latchkey in my other trousers. It will cost about 25 .cents to repair the "basement win dow. The weather man, I see, pre sets possible showers for today." Chicago Tribune. Three Kinds of Lightning. The Etruscans of old believed that there were three kinds of lightning one incapable of doing any injury, an other more mischievous in its character and consequently only to be issued with the consent of a quorum of twelve gods, and a third carrying mischief in "l^0^^'J^?W^ftW FURS Fox skins $5.50 to 12.50 Opossums $3.50 to 10.00 Martens $8.00 to 15.00 French Cooney 67c to $5.50 In all desirable shades and shapes.

Curi ously enough, modern scientifie men agree with the view that there are three kinds of lightning, but their vari eties differ from the Etruscans. The first is known as forked lightning and runs in zigzag lines, the second as sheet lightning, because it is seen in a body, and the third as globe lightning, as it sometimes runs in the shape of a ball. The latter variety is rather slow in moving. 4- The Word "Niee." "Nice" is one' of the exceptional words which have risen on the scale and improved with age. It is from the Latin "nescius" and originally signi fied Ignorant. To Chaucer it regularly meant foolish"Wise and nothing nice." In Spenser's time it still meant effeminate. \From general foolishness there was probably first a specializa tion to foolish fussiness about trifles. Then the idea of ignorance dropped out, and the word meant particular about details, accurate. It was credit able to be a "nice" observer or to show "nice" judgment. And so in the end the positively agreeable meaning of today was evolved. A Savage Poison. The juice of the green pineapple is accredited in Java, the Philippines and throughout the far east generally with being a blood poison of a most deadly nature. It is said to be the substance with which the Malays poi son their kreeses and daggers and to be also the "finger nail" poison for merly in use among the aborigine Jav anese women almost universally. These women cultivate a nail on each hand to a long, sharp point, and the least scratch from one of these was certain death. The Meanest Man. The meanest man has been located In Philadelphia. He dropped a large roll of bills on the street, and a boy who found it returned the money to him.
