There are u few u'.g game hunter In Now York, men who travel far into lorolgn wild every year or two and risk their lives hunting elephants, Users and lions. It Is a pastime as expensive as It Is dangerous yet there Is a fascination about it that Is seldom -.itlftlcd. As a iiilo the nal hunters of IiIk game are modest about their exploits, in fact, thoy seldom mention them ex cept to each other. One man, whoso fpool.ilty has always boon elephants, mot a follow whoso Miprotno Joy In life Is to send tho leaden burden of an expriss rille Into the shining coats of man-eating tigers. "I hear you had a narrow escape from a mad tuskor," said the tiger hun ter. "Toll me about It." "Nothing much to tell," returned the other modestly. "It was not the fault of the gun and I aimed true enough, but there Is no telling how to kill a mad elephant for sure. This one would not kill and came at me like an express train. Well, I owe my life to a black man. but It's tho last time." "You've had enough of elephant hunting, then';" "Not on account of "my narrow es cape, however." said the other hunter. It was something that happened when I was coming over on the steamer. 1 cannot got tho horror of those mo ments In the jungle out of my head and occasionally suiter from night mare. In which a score of elephants charge on me and I'm trampled Into t grease spot. I decided that a long ocean voyage would clear the cobwebs out of my muddled head and hooked a passage on the Colorado from Hull. "Karly one morning I wns waked from a most terrible nightmare by a nol-o on deck. I turned out of my bunk to Investigate. Looking out of the porthole tho tlrst thing I saw was the body of an elephant floating on the mii f nee a few rods awny from the ship. It was quite too much for my dream strained nerves and I keeled over. I'm afraid my ohphant-huntlr;; 'lays are ier, for I've quite lost inj nerve." "And the elephant alongside':" ques tioned the tiger hunter. "Was 'that Jum part of your uluhtinnroV' "No. Strange as It may seem, the elephant was real, as wo learned after ward.

The Wash ington Post describes the lady as a woman who likes to Improve her mind; hut she Is aNo a woman of much per sonal dignity, with a roga'i carriage, and an air of sweeping nil before her. She considers It a duty to Investigate every new phase of life which she sees. and on arrival at the army post wanted to eo everything of Interest. One day, while her host and hostess were out of the houe, she strolled down to the corral, to look out the army mules. There scorned to be no body In sight, so she went In among tho animals and examined and petted them. Now It happened that on this occa sion she woio a dress of very light color; and as tho army pack mules are accustomed to he led by the whitest animal among them, the unfurled white parasol of the visitor, with her light dress, awakened their quick In terest. As she left the corral she heard the steps of something following her. She glanced back. A mule .was step ping quietly along close behind, and all the rest of the mules were falling Into line back of him. The woman was not afraid. She re gards fear as a thing quite beneath her dignity; hut she was startled and Increased her pace. The mule behind her Increased his pace also, and march ed steadily along with his nose Just touching the back of the white parasol. The occupants of the long row of olllccrs' nouses were presently aston ished to see the most dlgnllled of wom en coming up the avenue, at a gait which was a compromise between her dignity and the desire to run, with a string of mules behind her, tho head of each Just touching the tall of tho one In front of him. ltwas then that an unprincipled young woman took a series of "snap shots." Madam's steps exceeded the prescribed army stride by about two feet, and her air of dignity was decid edly "on sldewlso." The photographer declares that there were twenty-live mules In tho procession. KIPiaaYBBaal EvV'.WWa vj- rvaaaaaaaV BBMI8lBal;'t HBl'.'IFf?!

Tho heroes are not all dead yet, al though we may not hear so much of them In this strenuous age. Tho Phil adelphia Telegraph prints tho story of a man who risked his life deliberately to save a fellow workman whom he did not know even by sight. The hero's name is .lames Stein, lie Is foreman of the rlu'gers In u big shipyard In Philadelphia. When he was praised for his courage, he exclaimed: "Pshawl What's the use of making so much talk about It? 1 did It to save the company a lawsuit." The story Is as follows: A boiler, weighing sixty-four tons, was about to he lowered into the hold of a steamship hi the big shipyard. The crane in use, which can lift a weight of one hundred tons as easily as a college girl lifts a wooden dumb bell, was swinging Its great arms to ward the monster boiler, eighteen feet in circumference. Perched on the top of the boiler was a workman, a poor Norwegian who speaks little Kngllsh and understands less. His back was toward the crane. He did not soo It, nor did anyone else until It was with in two foot of him. If the arm of the giant crane struck him h would crush him as a hammer would an eggshell,, or brush him off. Twenty feet below was the ground, strewn with Jagged The penalties ot being "too smart" are sure and always unpleasant. Stray Stories gives a new Instance. The clever young man was wandering up and down the platform of an Kngllsh railway station, intent on liudlug an empty carriage hi the express which wns almost due to start. Ills search was la vain. An Idea, which ho consjdercd very clever, oc curred to him, and assuming an oill clal air, he stalked up to the last carriage und cried in a stentorian voice, "All change hero! This caniage Is not going!" There were exclamations, low but deep, from the occupants of the crowd ed compartments; but nevertheless they scurried out of the carriage, and packed themselves awa' In other parts of the train. The smile on the face of the young man was childlike and bland as he settled himself comfortably In a cor ner of the empty carriage mid lighted a cigar. "Ah," ho murmured, "It's a' good tiling for me that I was bom clever! I wish they'd linriy up and start." Presently tho station-master put his head In at the window and said: "I s'pose you're the smart young fel low who told the people this carriage wasn't going?" "Yes," said the clever one. And he smiled. "Well," said the station master, with a grin, '7011 were right; It Isn't go ing.

The two men came together with 1111 Impact so great that both were picked up unconscious, but both recovered. It was an example of cool grit, clear Judgment and pumipt action. Ideas of oeoiiuiii.v, vary with differ ent people. It may be good policy to permit small wates In one direction In order to save greater wastes In other directions. The New York Times lately printed a story hi which this Is very neatly and amusingly Illus trated. A new division superintendent on a Western road called a mooting of the section foremen ami laid down a num ber of rules for tlielr guidance. Above all, he said, he wanted it distinctly understood that In the future economy would be the watchword 111 his de partment. The men wore duly warn ed to be especially careful In regard to supplies. A short' time afterward tho super intendent was nuking a trip over the road 011 a haiid-c.ir. .While Inspecting a piece of track lately repaired he no tlced a spike Ijlng under a bush be side the roadbed. Ho picked It up, and when he met the foreman of that section he salil, severely: "Do you remember what I told you In regard to economy and being care ful about supplies" "I do, suit," returned the foreman. "Then how do you account for this?" said the superintendent, producing the spike. "I found It n short distance down the road. Do you call that econ omy and being careful about sup plies?" "Sine, It's a sharp oye ye have, sorr," said the foreman, admiration on his lace and in his voice. "1 had three mill look In' for that spiUe two days, an' surra a wan gf thlin could folud ut!" told 1110 In conversation that tliore weie piobably fewer than au.OOO .lews and that the common estimate of SO, KX) or lio.ooo was exaggerated, but I found later that Ids own printed fig ures in 1111 almanac which he published reckoned the .lews of Jerusalem at ."U, 000. The best Informed outsiders claim that there are at least 11,000 Jewish families In tho city, which would sup port the larger estimate. If this figure be correct then the Jews of Jerusalem are more tluiu twice as numerous as all the other Inhabitants Moskms and Christians combined.

She said ho was "tlrst lu war, second In peace, and third in tho hearts of his countrymen." Frank M.
