THE ART OF BURGLARY. flouiibrritlliifr In Not the Easy Road to t , . mraltli Commonly ituppuscd. "Occasionally," said a retired burglar the other day, as related by the Yankee Blade, "a man transfers to himself in a single night the accumulations of an other mini's lifetime, but these Instances are very rare, and nothing could be fur ther from the truth than the idea that burglary is a quick and easy road to wealth. The fact Is that the great ma jority of burglars make but a scant living, and to make even that they must encounter many difficulties and dangers. The burglar's reward, whatever It may be, is never commensurate to the risk he takes. "I have myself acquired some prop erty, but If I had my life to live over again I should chance some other occu pation than burglary. ' Indeed, when you come to consider the Inconvenient hours and the general worry and uncer tainty of that business the wonder is that anybody should go Into it; if a man is at all inclined to be sensitive he should certainly Veep out of it. . "I remember a long time ago going late one night into a room in which there was one man sleeping. Ilia clothes were on a chair near the head of the bed. I was bending over those clothes and about to take them out Into the hull when the man suddenly woke up. Without an instant's hesitation he threw his arms nround mo. I was young then and strong, but this man was four times as strong as I was. I think he coulil have crushed me if he hod wanted to, and he put me out of tho house with the greatest cat. Hut before he did that he carried me over to the tabic and litalijjht. As he locked at me my watch-chain caught his eyo, and do you know thnt i..n took my watch and chain atnl kept tlie-.n. " ORIGIN OF THE GREAT LAKES. I How CuolnRlxt i Arronnt for Th.lr For nation. The question how the chain of igreat lakes between the United States and I'anuda nriiiinted is one that has long nccupiol the minds of geologists. One thiHiry that lias Ixcn wiiln'.y circulated rssorln that tho basins of the lakes were ezcavattsl by glacial action during tho ago f ho. Ar. 't'.ier theory, more recently set f'jrtli y'.Xh great fullness, holds that the l'.;o !;; ins were originully valleys hol lowe 1 out by the OJtion of water ages ugo whim our continent had on eleva tion three thousand feet higher than it has to-day. A great river appears to have flowed ut that time through the depresiou now occupied by tho lakes. Later, when the glaciers came, an ex tensive sinking of the land occurred, which wa followed, after the disap pearance of the ice, by an elevation again, but not to the bolght occupied before. During these changes of level, and especially when the reclcvatlon of the land occurred, according to the theory, the ancient valley or series of valleys was divided, into basins by barriers of rod; and of glacial deposits thrown across it. There is evidence that the land toward tbe northeast was elevated more rapidly than cbtewhero, and this fact is considered to account for the broad barrier of rock which cuts off the lako basins from tho Atlantic, and through which the St. Luwronee river now drains off the surplus water of ! those great inland, fresh-wcter seas which have been formed in the old val leys behind the vast dams that nature constructed. ghootlog at Evil Spirit.. A correspondent of the London Dally News describes a curious performance which he witnessed in the village of Egmanting, Ilavaria, recently. Just af t?r midnight there appeared in the Htreets of the village a party of one hundred and fifty armed men, discharg ing their guns as if in a hot engagement aud drlvfr.--Uaore them an imaginary enemy, while the intl&Jtanta trembled behind their barricaded doors. Proceed ing to the midst of the village, the party halted, while ono of their num ber recited the record of tho deadly sins, by way of exorcising the evil spir its supposed to be hovering about. While all this was in progress none of the. peoplo ventured out of the doors except one bold and incredulous fel low who put bis head out of a window and entered a protest against having Ills rest so unwarrantably disturbed at the dead of the night No attention was paid to him, however, and the firing party resumed operations and kept them up for about an hour, when, the evil spirits being disposed of, they Went home. What a Parrot Kid. One of the cleverest performances ever recorded of a parrot is told In the Chicago News. In a certain home in that city the heads of the household were absent, leaving the servant in charge and Polly, as usual, on her perch in the dining-room. During tbe even ing burglars entered and began rummag ing among the silver and other valua bles in the dining-room. As it was dark, the men did not see the parrot The sagacious creature seemed to real ise that something was wrong, and, as the electric bell which summoned the servants was within reach, she quietly preened the button with her elaw, a aha had often see her mistress do. It may have been only imitation on Polly's part, but il worked as well as if she had reasoned out the matter. The servants came rushing In and secured the burglars, and doubtless Polly had an extra "cracker" for her service. A Strang Epitaph. This is probably the strangest epitaph In the United St&tes: "Here is laid Daniel Borrow, who was born in sor row, and borrowed little from nature except hi name and his love to man ldnd end his hatred of redskin! Who i was, Dererthsleaa, a gentleman and a dead shot, who through a long life never ldUd his tnaa except In aelf-de-i eoM or by Accident, tad who, when he at last went tinder beneath the bnl 'let of Ms cowardly enemies la Jeff Morris' saloon, did so in the snre and Certain hope '-f a glorious mid everlast ing Ci'.T.'.nv " TRAVELERS' REGISTER BIO FOOB.
