SCARES AWAY THE RATS.
How Ingenious Woman Insures Sifsty
In tha Morning.
An Augusta hotel Is more or less In
fested with rats, and naturally the
rats have a love for the department
where the food Is prepared. The help
Is largely feminine, and while none of
them has any fellow feeling for the
rodents, there is one who stands In
mortal fear of them.
She, with the others, occupies
rooms on the floor above, and one of
the hardest hours of the day la when
she gets up In the morning and makes
her way to the kitchen. She had rath
er meet old Nick himself than a rat,
and she also feels that she Is liable,
on going downstairs, to meet one on
every step. Therefore, In order to
prevent anything of the kind, she has
provided a means of averting It that
Is simple, yet effective.
On her trunk, within reach of tbs
bed, she keeps ten or twelve tin lard
pall covers and when In the morning
she has donned her raiment she care
fully opens the door of her room and,
taking a. cover, lets It go down the
stairs. The rattle of the tin on the
stairs gives her courage, and with
the other covers In her hand she
starts down the stairs. When she has
descended two or three stairs she lets
go another cover and makes another
advance. This goes on until she has
reached the foot of the stairs, when,
after opening the kitchen door very
carefully, she throws the remaining
covers across the floor or up against
the range.
By this lime she has convinced her
self that not a rat Is left In the kitch
en, and with a sigh of relief she be
gins her day's work.—Kennebec Jour

Women and Higher Education.
Mm. Klim Spender Mussey. dean of
the Washington college of lew, said In
the couno of an Interesting addreaa
delivered on the occasion of the eighth
annual banquet of that Institution In
Washington the other day The time
was when woman, like the giraffe, was
quite content with what she found In
her purely domestic pasture, but dur
ing the last fifty years she has begun
to reach up for the leaves of knowl
edge that grow on the tallest palm
trees, until at last she aspired not only
to study law but to have a college of
law created primarily for her. as all
other colleges of law had been created
primarily for men, but she has gener
ously held out a hospitable hand to
her brother in the law. There has
never been any question about wom
an's right to labor with her hands,
but directly she wishes to be a brain
worker or to be trained as one, then
Is the time that she is In danger.
Somebody has defined a brain worker
as a man who spends all bo makes
trying to live up to the position he
holds, but that Is not the kind of brain
worker we graduate from Washington
college of law. To succeed we must
adjust efforts to obstacles. It la no
shame to fall, hut to stay down—ln
that lies defeat."
Speaking of Parts.
"My hair,” said the soubrette, "has
a natural part”
"And the other part,” rejoined the
low comedian. “Is fslse, I presume."
All who complain about bard times
and do nut try to succeed cheat them
selves.
