HOW BIG GUNS DODGE NIMBLE PEN CILS AT THE HOTELS. ▼he Hotel Visitor Is Sufo If He Hus Made Himself Solid with tho Hotel Clerk. Thankless Work for Enterprising News paper Men —Many Tricks. In attempting to avoid a man or a wom an at a large hotel it is necessary to use v good deal of wisdom. You do not need to be a detective and glide through tfce lobby, making frequent changes tn your headgear or in yottr coats, or in pulling on or taking •ft a false mustache. All you need to do Is to: Lie to the bell boy. Tip the clerk. Locate the little side door. And attend to one or two other small ■natters. When tbe reporter starts out on the "ho tel beat" trying to interview celebrities he has absolutely no guarantee that his work Will net anything worthy of record. A hotel "beat," lt should be understood, means getting news at the hotels. "Beat" la used tn the sense of route. This is about the way it goes: Tbe re porter stops first, let us Buy, nt tha famous place that has the marble corridor, the re sort of hU the politicians of the Union—the Fifth Avenue hotel. Ro looks at the regis ter. He nods to tho clerk, passes the topic of the day and incidentally asks whether or not there aro any notables on hand. He sees the name of Charles T. Yerkes on the blotter. He has been reading the pa pers, and he knows consequently that Mr. Yerkes has donated fcoO.OOO to tho Chicago university for a telescope. That's mighty good stuff, he thinks to himself. So he scribbles his name on a card and scud* it up stairs by the bell boy, requesting the privi lege of a brief talk. Now, notec'ne circumstance—tho reporter is never allowed to go up stairs of his own free will. He knows, maybe, where Mr. Yerkes' room is. He could go directly to it, but he would be stopped by a porter or by a hotel detective. So he has to trust to. the bell boy to bring an answer. That worthy starts up stairs at a lively clip. Tlie last the anslous reporter sees of him is the tails of his coat as ho zips up the marble stairs. Pivo minutes pass. He does not return. Ah, yes, here he is. He sings out to tbe clerk, mind you, aud not to tbe waiting reporter, these words: "No. 189 not in. Don't know when will be In." Then the 1 ell boy directs his itepa Over to the wooden bench over in tha anteroom and sits up straight, like r i dier, a pained expression on his hta There is no going behind tbu wtonft If the hoy says "He's out," he may mean "out" in the social sense of noi "honi*." But you can't help that. And the sly ras cal over there on the wooden board, tie's reading a dime novel! Sometimes a big gun will get away from a reporter by registering under a fa'se name. Mr. Astor often travels incog. Not maro than ten months ago he was un earthed at a botel'in Kansas, where he had been stopping under the name of one un known to ftiine. A vuriation is to register under the name of your gentleman's man. It fs clever, easy aud usually effective. Men rarely remain around the hotelsany way, whether they are big guns or little fishes. A man registers at a hotel, goes to bed ii it be night, gets out in tbe morning arid away to business. When the reporter comes iv, say at 1 o'clock, tht birds have usually flOVvn. To see a man's name on the register is a long, long way from finding hira in tbe hotel. After wait ing five hours to see* man likely enough that worthy will rwly :ijhati ho won't see yon. Then you wfjl be rebuked by your" japer for neglect of duty. Another way of escaptog reporters at the hotels is through th,* clerk. When Mr. Walk-in-the-mud, of Mudville, tho recent ly elected governor, drops down on the New York hotel, ho registers his name all Sn a flurry, and then, leaning over the coun ter, says to tbe clerk in a hoarse voice: "Remember, I am not in to any report ers." The clerk bows, rings up trout, and tho gentleman is shown to jtis apartment Hall an hour later Mr. Hotel' Lounger, a reporter for a dally newspaper, comes in. He looks over the lint of arrivals. He sees the name of Mr. Walk-hi-the-mud. Ho fetches out his oard. It says: i Mr. Hotel Lounger desires to see Mr. : W-I-T M for abrief talk for The So-aud- : ; so. No polities. Time, say, ten minutes. : ; Interview to be on topics of day, with : : pleasant porsonal referonce to Mr. W-I- : ; T-M's recent ouboesses. There is a neat little flb on that card. It Is made to appeal to the foibles and vani ties of mankind. He hands this card tc the clerk. The clerk scans it narrowly and sayn: "I am sorry, but you cannot see Mr. \V. today. He haw left strict orders that he will not see any one." "Why notf" "Oh, I don't know." That settles ft. The estimable gentleman may at the moment be in his room smok ing cigars and putting his feot on the back of a chair, but he is secure in his retreat; no ono can get at him. He has fixed that with the clerk. Many a good man and a few bad ones have managed to escape from hotel report ers through the side door or through the ladieti' door. It will happen, let us say, like this: The reporter is in hot puMUit, and tht game Is acting very Jttf. Maybe the re porter has been pestering the guest almost to death. He is waiting for his man in the lobby. Every half honr he sends up his card. Hie answer cornea down that Mr. Guest is not iv. That is right too. The evening is beginning to draw on apace. Finally, puffing and blowing, in comes Mr. Guest, fresh from business. Mr. Reporter gobbles him at opce. Mr. Guest makes be lieve that he is very, very, very busy, and that he cannot possibly see Mr. Reporter now, but If Mr- Report ol, will come this evening, a»y st ft—yes, at 8-Jie will see to it that Mr. Reporter is treated properly. The newspaper man goes away in deep iorrow. His flve hours' vigil has availed trim naught. Prompt ly at 8, or a little be fore, he is at the Duttys room with his card. The answer comes back, "Mr. Guest hits (rone to the theater." This is andther ol the odd exits of the Wg.guna. But let the reader, if he be sought after by interviewers, ooiisider. Reporters have long momm-Jir*, and, like the traditional elephant to wfciph tobacco was given years ago, may revenge themselves long after the span bimeeif ban forgotten his offence. It doesn't alwojs pay—the odd exit.—New Irorkaiecord'«r. • Expensive Shirts, Cheap Scarfs. !

We find in tbe table at thoßamessoum distinct references to the bull, the lion aud the scorpion, und it is also clearly indicated that at that time thoSirius rose heliacally at the beginning of tho rise of the Nile. This word heliacally requires a little explanation. Tho ancients, who hrvd no telescopes and had to use their horizon as the only scientific instrument which they possessed, were very careful in de termining tbe various conditions in vrhich a star could rise. For instance, if a star wero rising at the same time that the sun was rising, it was said to rise cosmically, but unless certain very obvi ous precautions were taken the rising stnr wonld not be seen in consequence of the presence of daylight. It is quite clear that if we observe a star rising In the dinvn it will get more and more difficult to observe the nearer tho time of sunrise is approached. There fore whnt tbo ancients did was to deter mine a time before sunrise in the early dawn at which the star could bo very obviously and clearly seen to rise. Tho term "bcliacttlly rising" was coined to represent a star rising visibly in the dawn—therefore before tbe sun. Gener ally throughout Egypt tbe sun was sup posed to be something like 10 dogs, be low tho horizon when a star was stated to rise heliacally. We find thon that more than fi.ooo years ago the Egyptians were perfectly familiar with these facte, and tho differ ence between a cosmical and heliacal rising was perfectly clear to them. But the table at Thobes tells us, moreover, that tho sun's jonmey in relation to some of the zodiacal coristeilatinns was per fectly familiar s,oooyears ugo. These then are some of the more genera! statements which may bo' made with regard to the most important points so far discussed by those who have dealt with Egyptian astronomy, and it may be added that all this information has come to ns in iujthologic guise. The various apparent movements of tlio hcavouly bodies which are produced by the rotation and revolution of the earth and the effects of, procession wero familiar to the Egyptians, however ig norant they may have been of the causes, ilioy carefully studied what they saw and attempted to put their knowledge together in the most convenient fashion, associating it with their strange im agiuings and with their system of wor bltip.—Nineteenth Century. They Drank to Lord How. At one time the officers under Lord Howe refused to drink his health at their mess, for, though a splendid admi ral, be Wag not popular in the navy on account of it certain shynesa ami want of tact with those about him. The chaplain, who was a protego of his lord ship, was mortified at this and deter mined that they should drink to Lord Howe. When called upon for a toast one day he said, "Well, gentlemen, 1 can think of nothing better at this mo ment than to ask you to drink the first two words of the third psalm, for a scriptural toast for once may be taken from one s>f my cloth." The toast was accordingly drunk. On referring to the Bible it was found that the first two words of the third psalm were "Lord How." Aftor the glorious Ist of June the above was the favorite toast throughout the navy, and the chaplain triumphed more widely than he anticipated.—London Tit-Bits. Hoarded Tf omen. Beardod women have existed at all periods of tho world's history. Even Herodotus, the "Father of History," gives us an acoount of one Podasnes, "who lived above BaliearnastsuaV' a priestess of Minerva, whose chin regular ly budded With a large beard whent-vei any great public calamity impended. Bartel Garetji, a.woman of Copenhagen, had a beard reaching to her waist. Charles XII of Sweden had a femalo gren adier in his army who possessed the beard as well as the courage of a man. Mar garet, duchess of Austria and governess of the Netherlands, had a largo, wiry, stiff beard, of which she was very proud. Of late years, Albert, duke of Bavaria, reports having had a young lady gov erness in his household who was "the proud possessor of a very largo black beard." —Philadelphia Press. An Era of Unmarried Women. Susan B. Anthony is of the opinion that wo are on the verge of an era of un married women. Our civilination, she says, is changing. Daughters cannot bo supported at home, and there is nothint there to busy them. The women used t» spin and weave, make carpets and soap, but now all that is done for them in th* factories. Young men do not make enough money to support their wives, and there ia such a erase for dissipation among them that the women would rather go into a store for almost nothing than to marry.—New York Sun. Wanted a Good Cow. A young couple wero giving up city life and going to live on a farm, and one of tlie most absorbing questions in the future farmer's mind was the buying oi his stock. He was talking cows to his wife one evening and all the idea ahe had to offer was, "Please, George, do get ono cow any way that gives good buttermilk, because it is the loveliest thing in the world for the complexion." —Exchange Children at Table. It is an old fashioned notion that "chil dren should he seen and not heard." An occasional talk by the little folk is not objectionable, yet at the same time they should not monopolize conversation ot attention. They have their place, and it is an injustice that they should at the family board always be silent.—Good Housekeeping. No More Dream Stuff. We are to talk no more of dream staff.

IN CHINATOWN. The Mongolians In the Height of Their New Year Festivities. Yeßterday waa a great day in China town. The festivities seemed to cul minate during the afternoon, and there was an incessant roar of firecrackers and bombs along the streets of the quarter. The burning of powder was indulged in lavishly and the Chinese Beemed to go abßOlutelv wild aa even ing approached. Just before dark tbe discharge of firecrackers could bo heard nearly to the city limits, and the pro ceedings were witnessed by tremendous crowds of white people, who flocked to the scene. The theater was in full blast and it wbb almost an impossibility to obtain standing room in it. No casualties or accidentß were reported, and in spite of the seemingly reckleßS manner in wbich the combustibles were touched ofT there were no firea. The observance of the holiday will last for a week yet, but will not be marked by such fireworkß displays as those of yes terday. There are a great many China men present from surrounding towns, and it is understood that people who em ploy Chinese, even aa far away »g Or ange county, are minus their employees during the progress of the holidays.
