The "crockery" survived that visitation, but pooti after suffered at the hands of a friend. A goest who revered the name of Washington Irving dropped a cup, and It fell to the floor with a sickening ish. There was dead si lence as the family stood staring at the melan choly remains. Then the guest spoke: "1 con sider it a greal honor to break a cup that has touched the l;ps of the greatest American au thor." And she stooped down, carefully ith ered into her handkerchief the precious frag ments, and bore them away to pack them care fully in her trunk. Tho cups had still another nture. In the spring and fall there Is a grand round-up on every ranch. The cattle are counted, the ealTea branded and divisions made into the different pastures. The ranch owners at th!s time em ploy extra cowboys. A raifs wagon is fitted out with dishes, cooking utensil:?, drinking water and provisions, unless the rour.J-up fur the day is near enough to the ranch house for the men to come in to dinner. On the first day of one of the fall round-ups at Sleepy Hollow Ranch the mesa wagon stood at the door waiting to be Fto< ked out. Every one was running ba<:k and forth g.-tting together this and that thing at the last moment. Some one asked the rand ov.-ner, who fcapp. n,-d to pass through the kitchen. If he would not get the tin coffee cups and pack them in the wagon. The ranch owner is a no toriously absent minded man, and on this par tlcular morning he was wondering where he could get ar. extra man to take the ; lace of the on.- who had failed him at the last minute, why the cowboys from the n. 9 Hanch had not come, and whether the water would hold out if the wind continued too low to turn the wind mill. But in spite of these, to a ranchman, vital worries, he remembered to go to the china closet for the cups. After the little company of cowboys and the moss ....... up the rear had disap peared and peace and n,ui<t once more pre raJled abont the hous.-. the rancherb'a wife had occasion to go to the china closet. Hei glance fell on the shelf held sacred to the Irving china. Her eyes suddenly grew wide. There was the enormous platter, there were the vegetable ; dishes, the plates, but wh<re were the cups? hr ■ r l heart came up into her throat, and she turned ; quickly to a side shelf. There sat, peaceful and \ unmolested, the common Mexican pottery and & dczen or fo shiny tin cups. Not a piece was , pone from Its place. Every horse had been taken from the pasture, and nothing could be . done but wait in agonized silence until the mess wagon should come rumbling and jolting horn? sjsjaln. Strange to say, not a cup was broken. The old aristocrat* weathered the storm of ;» round-up and returned to port without a nick. MANUAL TRAIXMXG. Indiana to Work—School* for h\d Boys and Girt*.

W"hil«- the boys are being equipped to 'Iraw good wages, the Indian girls are being made into housekeepers. They are learning to sew, "ok. •wash, iron and clean and keep house. Th* Indian girls call keeping house "making it new," and their phrase is expressive of the care they usually take. At a day school in ?outh Dakota, Uncle Sam provides the luncheon rations, and the girls, assisted by a teacher, prepare the luncheon. The meal usually consists of "fTee, bread, bacon, beans, dried fruit and syrup. In Idaho and Kansas an outing system for Indian girls has been established, the girls working tor wages as house servants in the summer. Thia Is also being tried in South Dakota, and the Indian problem and the servant problem may both be solved at the same time. AUTOMATIC JUSTICE IN ITALY. A few days ago a rebber tried to steal copper by cutting down tne wires from an iron pele out side Naples.. The wires were carrying a high tension currsnt of five thousand volts and killed him instantly. It was with difficult/ that the body was brought down, as one arm was firmly gripped around the column. Th* current passing through the arm had pertly melted the iron of the column. —Tha Srh-rw. AN INSECT THAT LOOKS LIKE A THOR*. Protective resemblance, protective colorat or whatever name may be given to the deception which is practised by one branch of zoology upon another, is to the naturalist at ail tm.e3 a most fascinating study. One of the most remarkable, perhaps, is the little South A-ner ican insect which bears so striking a resem blance to the ordinary rose thorn as often to deceive even the most practiced eye. H : .v it discovered in the first instance its milarity to z prickly thorn, or how. having made tn« discovery, it decided to use it as a rr-ar., cf protection against its natural enemies, is cr.e of nature's profoundest riddles. Still more mysterious, perhaps, is the instinctive power which induces it tc take up a position on the ros- stem, in the very exactitude of which in rc!r.ticn to the surrounding thorns lies its chiif • ••rent of safety. — The Sthfja. 5
