Working the Dictionary For Game
Until They Wetas Brought to Grief.
"How do you s..ll 'choir?' " asked a
man in the bookstore.
"What do you mean-paper or mu
sic ?" inquired a smart young man whc
poses as an authority on all topics.
"Music, singing, of course. , replied
the man in search of orthographical in
"C-h-o-i-r," responded the smart
young man decisively.
"Q-u-i-r-e, " chimed in a red bearded
man who was busy looking at some
"You are referring to paper. " said
the smart young man, looking sadly at
the interrupter. "We were speaking
about music. "
"I mean music, too." said the red
bearded man calmly: "q-u-i-r-e. to sing
in concert.'"
The smart young man's expression
changed from sadness to contempt.
"You had better consult your diction
ary," he said with a sneer.
"Never mind," retorted the red
bearded man. "My way of spelling may
be a little old fashioned, but you will
find it correct according to Webster.
You will also find it correct according
to the Century Dictionary. and if I am
not mistaken it is likewise given in the
Standard. Your way is all right too.'
The smart young man gave a sniff of
scorn. "Josh Billings and you should
have collaborated on a phonetic spelling
"Look here." said the red bearded
man. "I'll bet you $3 that Webster's
latest spells it 'q-u-i-r-e."
"Make it $5, " said the smart young
man, pulling out a roll.
"No: I don't want to rob you. Get
the dictionary. "
The money was put up and Webster's
International brought out. There it
was. "q-u-i-r-e. to sing in concert. "
"I didn't mean a' verb." said the
smart young man, growing white
around the ears. "Where is the noun ?'
They found that, too. although it was
marked obsolete. Then the smart young
man wilted.
"I won't take your money. " said the
red bearded man, handing back the
bills "My name is Bell. George T
Bell I have had educational advantages
which you probably never received, and
I spent several months learning the
different ways to spell that word Sev
-eral years ago I was on the secret serv

trail of a pair of sharpers who had a
repertory of 'con' games that would
have made the ordinary bunko man look

ordinary intelligence and had the' man

way we happened tc get them was a
pure 'accident.
"My partner and I were going down
from St. Louis on' a Mississippi river
packet. There were about 20 of us in
the smoking room talking and trying to
pass the time comfortably. Just as a
lull came in the hum of conversation a
young man seated at a table writing
some letters looked up with a troubled
air and said. 'Could any of you gentle
men tell me how to spell "choir?" I
am a little puzzled over it.'
",'What kind of a one do you mean ?'
asked several
" 'Choir. to sing in concert,' chirped
the young man. wrinkling his brow as
if to recall the proper orthography.
"'C-h-o-i-r.' said a scholarly looking
man with glasses on.
"'Q-u-i---e.' sang out a big, well fed
old man off in the corner.
"'C-h-o-i-r,' repeated the first man
with some emphasis. 'I thought every
fool knew that.'
" 'That's all right,' said the old man
off in the corner 'Money talks. I'll bet
you $50 that Webster spells it
"q-u-i-r-e" too.'
'" 'I'll raise you 50,' said the first
man. who was a cotton buyer at Mem
"'All right.' said the big old man
coolly. Then the others joined in and
bet him to a standstill. They put up
about $500. Then they got the diction
ary, and, as just now. the man who bet
on 'q-u-i-r-e' won.
"My partner and I waited till the
money had changed hands, and then I
said, 'Come on. Si."
"I walked up to the young man and
maid: 'Come with me: I want you. I'll

lared the big old man and we waltzed
them down below. You never saw two
fellows look quite so cheap. They had
cleaned up over $15,000 on that one
trick, but they got'four years and a half
apiece. That is one spelling school I
have attended that not every man goes
to. That game is one which will catch
nine educated men out of ten. You are
all right, but you may still have some
thing to learn."

the usual invitation in payment for the

A Beetle That Cuts Metal.
There is no use trying to keep in
confinement a curious little creature
known as the metal cutting beetle.
Not long ago an entomologist caught
one of these beetles and. unaware of
its peculiar ability for sawing through
anything in its way. put it in a caid
board box. Soon tiring of solitary con
finement, or probably thinking its cap
tor had forgotten to provide it with a
door. the beetle cut one for itself and
crawled out.
It was captured and put in a wooden
box, and as soon as the novelty of its
new home wore off, again the persever
ing insect cut a hole in the box and es
The next time the escaped prisoner

cutting beetle from Mexico scorned to
live in a pepper box and gnawed a hole
big enough to allow it to creep out in
to the big world again. And 'this time
it was not caught.

The Slaughter That Came With the
End of the Janizarie,.
On the 15th day of June. 1826, the
whole corps of the janizaries in the
capital assembled. overturned their
camp kettles (the signal of revolt) and
advanced upon the seraglio. With his
own hand the sultan unfurled the
sacred "sanjak sherif" and called upon
the true believers to rally round their
dischah and caliph, and the zealous
Mussulman citizens rushed from all
quarters and rallied under the sacred
symbol. The ranks of the janizaries
were raked with grape and solid shot
by"'Black Hell" (a nickname for Ibra
him. general of artillery) and his gun
ners as they pressed through the streets.
compelling them to fall hack to the
Etmeidan. where they defended them
selves with extraordinary fierceness.
slaying great numbers of their assail
ants. The artillery, supported by the
marines and the bostangi. pressed for
ward and compelled them to retreat to
their barracks, where they offered des
perate resistance to the assault.
From every street cannon thundered
on the walls without intermission, the
building was soon in flames, the walls
torn and battered down by grapeshot,
and the janizaries, overwhelmed by
ruins, shot and flames, perished in their
burning and blood stained barracks.
For two days the gates of the city re
mained closed, and with relentless vigor
every corner was searched for such
janizaries as had escaped the general
massacre, and when found they were
hastily executed. Nearly 20.000 jani
zaries were destroyed on this memora
ble day. and many thousands were aft
erward put to death in the various
cities of the empire. and thus not one
of the number under arms was left to

In the Tap Root of an Oak.
I remember a curious incident con
nected with the tap root of an oak.
This oak. a good tree of perhaps 200
years' growth, was being .felled at
Bradenham wood when the woodmen
called attention to something peculiar
on the tap root. On clearing this of soil
we found that the object was a horse
shoe of ancient make. Obviously in
the beginning an acorn must have fall
en into the hollow of this cast shoe, and
as it grew through the slow genera
tions the root filled up the circle, car
rying it down into the earth in the
process of its increase till at length we
found wood and iron thus strangely
wedded. That tap ruot with the shoe
about it is now or used to be a paper

Pure Water a Poison.
By "chemically pure water' we
usually understand perfectly fresh, dis
tilled water. Distilled water is a danger
ous protoplasmic poison. The same
poisonous effects must occur whenever
distilled water is drunk. The sense of
taste is the first to protest against the
use of this substance. A mouthful of
distilled water, taken by inadvertence.
will be spit out regularly. The local
poisonous effect of distilled water makes
itself known by all the symptoms of a
catarrh of the stomach on a small scale.

resorted to today. of washing out the
