Fooling Jay Gould.
A resident of Kansas City collected
a group of men around him one night
last week by telling in a loud voice
some new stories about Jay Gould.
His stories were chiefly interesting
because of their improbability. The
story teller evidently did not know
Jay Gould. He narrated, with ap
parent sincerity, an incident whc ein
Mr. Gould was outwitted in a rail
road deal by two Kansas men. The'y
had invited Mr. Gould to take a t: i
over the Central Branch railroad in
Kansas with a view to purchma.ng it.
They wanted to sell badly. Mr.
Gould was induced to visit Atchison,
and from that city started with the
two Kansas men west over the line.
At every station the Gould train was
obliged to wait for freight trains to
pass going east. The farther west
they went the more numerous be
came the trains, and of course the
greater grew the value of the road in
the eyes of Gould.
The return trip was made in the
night, and Gould is represented as
having closed the bargain eagerly.
Subsequently, according to the story,
Mr. Gould ascertained that there was
very little freight traffic on the road.
He found that he had been deceived
by the trick of moving every empty
freight car belonging to the company
past his special train. --New York
Do Animanl Dream?
Much research and investigation
warrants the assertion that man is
not the only animal subject to
dreams. Horses neigh and rear upon
their hind feet while fast asleep; dogs
bark and growl and in many other
ways exhibit all their characteristic
passions. It is highly probable that
at such times the remembrance of
the chase or of a combat is passing
through the dogs' minds. Besides
the above signs of fleeting pain,
anger and exciteminnt, these noble
creatures of ten nmanifest signs of
kindness, playfulness and of almost
every other paSsion. Rum ,inant ani
inals, such as the ishlepl and tie cow,
are believed to Lbe less affected with
dreams than those of higher passions
which Slpend their waking hours in
scenes of greater excitement.
Philosophers and investigators tell
us that if we trace the dream faculty
still lower in the scale of animal life
we shall prolably find that the same
phenomena exist, and judging from
analogy it is only reasonable to reck
on dreaming as one of the universal
laws-almost as universal as sleep it
self.-St. Louis Repullic.

A correspondent declares that
hares taking to the water are "by no
means a rare p1henomenon." 'Hay
ing," he continues. "been residing
near London for over fifty years, 1
have had but few opportunities of
observation in this respect, but I well,
remember in my younger (lays a
hare quite deliberately crossing the:i
Avon in view of the tollgate keeper
at Hampton, near Evesham, and
after shaking itself skip off to the
gardens, no dloubt to regale itself on
the dainty lherhage there.
"On another occasion a friend of
mine shot at a hare not far from the
same place, but not securing his
prize it ran to the river and swami
across. Another case camne to my
knowledge when a hare, pressed hal d
by a dog in pursuit, swam over a
brook and made good its escape. The
latter two cases were for dear life.
not so the former. I feel sure many
residing in the country could give
instances to confirm the fact that
hares have no objection to a bath."

Too Iig for Ilis Sphere.
The newspaper office b'oy is fond
of work-that is to say, he loves to
sit and see it accumulate.
He loves to contemplate work in
the abstract. Its details are less in
I teresting to him. The sound of the
call bell is music to his ears. It
never annoys him in the least. There
are several authenticated instances
on record where he has been known
to answer the bell. His forte is the
running of errands--those not con
nected with the business of the office
-for himself and friends. He likes
to assist the elevator man and make
himself generally useful outside of
his usual duties. The dull routine of
office work is too limited a sphere of
action for his versatility. In fact
the newspaper office boy is some
thing per se.--New York Herald.
How It Sounded to a Child.
Little folks don't always under-:
stand things aright. At one of the
pubhc schools recently the teacher
was instilling "Barbara Fretchie"
into the minds of her charges for
concerted recitation. The lines "Up
from the meadows rich with corn,
clear, on a cool September morn, the
clustered spires of Frederick stand,"
had been drilled and drilled until all
had them perfect-to all appearances.
But one little girl, on reaching home,
recited the lines in this style, "Up
from the meadows rich with corn,
clear, on a cool September morn, the
custard pies of Frederick stand."

London Fog.
Over the mighty city. amid certain
atmospheric conditions, the particles
of carbon form a canopy that ob
structs the passage of heat and of
chemical rays from the center of lifo
-the sun. There is a lowering of
the temperature, and animal vitality
is diminished. Pure fog mist, such
as we see in the country, does not
seriously interfere with solar chem
ical energy.'
Mist is simply condensed vapor.
When it is frozen the particles form
storage for the deposition of particles
of carbon or of sulphur. If the vapor
is merely in condensed watery parti
cles it absorbs the hydrocarbons and
the sulphurous acid produced by im
perfect combustion of bituminous
coals. The innocent mist is thus con
verted into the yellow black fog
known to the dwellers in London.

The Shah and His Subjects.
The immense amount of money
spent by the shah in the purchase of
furniture and curiosities in Europe
excited a feeling of discontent, and
his second tour was unquestionably
unpopular among his subjects. That
he was able to venture upon a third
is a proof of the absolute security of
his position, but it is also due to the
sentiment which he has taken care
to diffuse among his subjects that
the princes of Christendom vie with
each other in anxiety to entertain so
great a potentate and squabble for
the honor of his alliance.-- "Persia

The Use of thie 1 o:.ocle.
There is a queer fashion, more
prevalent in England than with us
perhaps entirely cic;if_.i ed to England
and a few anglomalenu:c.; in Getrmany
and this country--cf v. 'ing a glass
before one eye only. Ti:; c'sc'

armed the short sighted eye with a
glass andl left the other in a condition
in which it worked easilxy witho t
one. An English gentleman lately
told me that this fashion arose from
the needs of the hunting ficld, when
it became necessary--on jutnpiug a
ditch, for example----to chae'ge the
view from one covering thei ,whole
field to one that would correctly e -'i
mate the short distance to b c ,ovc"cd
by the horse.
The one glass could then be real il
dropped from the eye, whereas to tie
tach a pair of eyegtlasses wonld not
be so easy. But whatever ;vts thet
origin, most of those who no .v wear
a glass in this way do so for pu:'o 10.-c.
