A SQUIRREL WITH NERVE.
8urvived lt* Wild Leap Over a Cliff to
Escape Captivity.
It tony net bc generally known thnt
the ?a?iultrel caa lo.-ip from n great
height, brenk Its fal) in its -descent and
slight un: ur*-d. A naturalist om-**
saw :i squirrel leap from a treetop
thirty feet high, drop to the groimd
ami run up soother tree for safety.
Some boys In Mexico caught a black
squirrel nearly hs hip ns a eat. lt had
once SSCSpid fruin them by Isepiug
from the Inp of a sixty foot pine Hoe
They thought it bewitched ami want?
ed to throw lt down n precipice sev?
eral hundred f**et deep. A traveler
intervened to olitnin fair play.
The squirrel was conveyed In a pll
IOwe:,**j<; tu the odge of the cliff, then
let oof that he might take the choice
between captivity and the terrible
leap. The crouching squirrel looked
?lii\\n the abys*i. then backward an?I
sideways, his eyes glistening.
Rfirlni no escape except lil front, he
tonk a thing leap into sprue nml flut?
tered rather than fell Into the abyss.
His Ices worked like those of n swim?
ming dog, but faster, while his tail.
Slightly elevuted. spread out like a fan
Ile honied on a kflfl) of Uni.stone,
where he could be seen squatting on
his hind lees nnd smoothinr his ruf?
fle*! fur, after which he nutde f..r the
creek, drunk and scampered away into
the willow thicket.?Loudon Answers.
ROUTED HIS CREDITOR.
Lespes, the French Writer, Adopted a
Most Effective Method.
Lespes. thc French journalist, known
ns Timothee Tritiiin. was OOCC dlaagree
ably intrutleil on hy a creditor, who an?
nounced bis inieiition of not departing
until lie was paid. Thc- creditor plant?
ed himself <m a chair, and Lespes Le
held him, with consternation, draw
bread am) cheese from bis pockets, as
though to fortify himself against
events.
Several hours glided by. Lespes bini
resinned his wiitin}*; and Bniahed au
article. Tin- r rctlitor showed aa sirens
of moving. Suddenly Lenpes ross and
with bits of newspaper bonan carefully
blocking nil Hu? apertures through
whi. li air could come into the room
Ile then made preparations for lighting
a elia,-, oal Dre, but before applying tbs
match pasted mi the wall just opposite
thc i-ii-ditor's eyes a paper thus lacon?
ically worded:
"'Like notice that we died of our own
will."
"\\ hat are you doing*!** cxr-luimed the
creditor uneasily.
?'Your society woultl render life intol?
erable, so we are going to commit sui
t nie together,*' answered Timothee
tranquilly.
It is needless to say that the creditor
decamped without walting for results
and without his money?Argonaut.
The Pride of the Poor.
At the present stage of sociology no
onlooker need doubt thia New York
.Sun story of the ?'might have bsens"
of a grent city:
So many men to whom the city mis
slonary had given money tor n night's
lodging hail expressed | preference for
a certain east side lodging house that
he wondered what const it Med its pur
titular attraction
"ll makes us feel self respecting,"
the men saitl when tpiest ioiietl.
So far ns the missionary could sec
lt was a typical lodging hons.-. wltooe

historian In lils study of ruins of Eu
rope is the Coliseum at Home. Tbis
historic edltlce was ?rectal during the
reigns of Vespasian and Titus und In

Sled, on willed occasion 5.000 wild an

The inauguration tasted IOU elays. An

This stinttllie WM originally called
the Amphlthentrum Klavlum. lint since
the time of Bebe lt has Wen known a^
:he Coliseum, probably given it because
jf its enormous size.
The Roman Coliseum became th.
?pot where prince anti pe?ople met te.

:he outer wall is loT. the length of the

rovers an area of six acres.
It is only hy ascending to the appel
terrace that the enormous sl/.e of the
""ollserim ls fully seen, and by mexen

he e'ollseiim are supposed to haveheen

mid to be perfect: "The outsjilo of the
-diflce was lncmsted with niart'le and
taCOreted with statues. The slopes of
he vast concave which formed the In
ilile were filled anti silinniiiibsl with

Sothing was omitted which In any re
epect could be subservient to the con?
venience and pleasure of the s|.i*. r.-i
tors. They were protected from the
eun and rain by an ample canopy, or
*aslonally elrawn over their heads. Th*
ilr was continually refreshed by the
flaying of fountains and profusely im
iregnated by the grateful scent of aro?
matics.
"In the center of the edifice the arena
was Strawed with the finest sanel and
successively assumed tile most ili-t.i
"nt forms. At ono moment lt seennil

Thrace. The subterranean pipes con

water, and what had Just before sp
p sa red a Ieved plain might be suddenly
converted into a wlele lake, covered
with armed vessels and replenished
with the monsters of the deep.

Ornaments and Gay Colors.
There ar** many si-an-_:o. uncivil!*"**!
people ur. <n*t tin* Asiatic American**
of ttie Philippine Islands.
The TliiRimis ure a very uncouth
tribe of mivaires. Their toonil women
h.ive their arms almost completely
covered with strln-zs of bends, wound
so as to form beautiful and striking
designs. A loug, heavy string of beads
ls also twited around the hair and
Innes down the back like a braid. Tbe
skirt of these liead women is white
with a blue border, ami the waist ts of
light yellow. They smoke pipes of
solid silver, ornamented with bangles,
lu the bowls of which pieces of cigar
are inserted.
The typical young Ti ti clan chieftain
wears n stiff collar of beads and a guy
ly colored calico shirt, over -which ls a
gert of scarf trimmed with many sil?
ver coins. The members of this tribe
are very fond of sliver. They make n
large number of finger rings from
silver coins, and eneh mun usually hus
from live to ten of these rings about
his person, but not necessarily on his
fingers.
The Tingians ar** fond of a peculiar
Isnce. The music ls produced hy beat?
ing with the piilms of the hands on
?gansas" or tomtoms. The dancers, a
man and a woman, with arms out?
stretched, circle shoot each other in a
.piral. the man pursuing the woman
