Monkeys Like Scrapping.
; "Monkeys are in a class by them
rse?ves," said the circus man. "If one
of them has red hair he is sure to be
a dandy scrapper. The best fighter Is
always the leader. They hang togeth
er aud bow and scrape before the boss
just like a good many people. Mon
keys with red faces and flat heads will
.whip the life out of those smaller than
they are, but will run like the wind
when it comes to an even break. A
monkey riot Is a funny spectacle. Even
-.pi the same cage you will find groups
herded together as If there was some
class distinction and the lines were
drawn, tightly. If two of the big ones
come together in a row the others gen
wall y stand off and let them have it
oct but If any of the little ones get to
.crapping then the father and mother
.re apt to mix In, and the next step is

turning on the hose and punish them
bf locking np the den so that they can
not get any peanuts from the crowd
and hold back their meals. This plan

A Mode! Hotel "Boots."
It was in a Dublin hotel, and as I
closed the bedroom door, says a writer
In the Manchester Guardian. I noticed
that the end of one of ray boot laces
was inside tho room, the boot to which
It was attached having been placed as
usual outside. When 1 awoke next
morning the boot lace end was still
there, and I opened the door expecting
to find that the boots had not been

among ''boots." had found the lace
tightly gripped by the door and rather

servant or to any other or shall carry
it away from the table at any time he
