up to the sidewalk and steadying bin

"but I am looking for a restauran
where I can get a good meal. Can yol
direct me to one?"
The man whom he addressed wa
standing in front of a store trying t

with the other, for it was a wind;
day, and at first he made no response
But presently he spoke.
"Go to the next block," he said, "an<
turn to the right. Four doors dowi
you will find a restaurant."
The stranger thanked him and rod
on. About an hour later they acci
dentally met again. The stranger wa
on his way out of town. He stopper
and spoke.
"My friend," he said, "I followe<
your directions. I went to the restau

worst meal I ever had in my life."
"I thought you would," answerer
the other. "If you had waited till

She Worked the Snake Cure.
Novel crimes are occasionally com
mitted in Paris, as, for instance: A
old gypsy .woman called on a docto:
living in the Place Pierriere and aske<
him to visit her daughter, who wa:
lying ill in a caravan on the fortific
tons near by. "I have tried the ser
pent cure," she said, "but there was ni
result If you will allow me to pa:
your fee in advance I shall be sure yo1
will come."
The doctor consented, and the oli
woman handed him a $100 note. A
he was getting the change out of thi
safe she again mentioned the "serpen
cure" and he asked her what It was
"This." she said, and, taking a bo:
from under her rags, she turned hal
a dozen snakes out on the floor.
" The doctor was startled and rushe<
out of the room. When he returnee
with a stick he found that the womax
and the snakes had vanished, while al
the money in his safe had also gone
He sti held the $100 note in his hand
but this proved to be a forgery.

A POOR GROCER.
Audubon's Lame Attempt to Succeed
as a Merchant.
d it is not generally remembered that
I the worldwide reputation of Audubon
dl as a naturalist incidentally is due to
c his failure to establish himself perma
neatly as a Missouri grocery merchant
e and dealer in the best brands of Ken
v tucky whisky.
e In 1810 he and Ferdinand Rozier of
Y St Genevieve loaded a keel boat at
e Louisville, Ky., with 310 barrels of
whisky and groceries and started down
the Ohio and Mississippi to St. Gene
vieve to open a grocery store. The trip
was made during the winter, and the
streams were so full of ice that the
boat was drawn up. against the bank
e and winter quarters were established
just below Cape Girardeau. When St.
Genevieve was reached. after the open
ing of navigation, the firm of Audu
bon & Rozier opened their store and
dd a prosperous business. But the
business was done by Rozier, for Au
dubon preferred the woods to the coun
ter and devoted more of his time to
e sketch-ing and stuffing birds than he
did to marketing the 310 barrels of
Kentucky bourbon or any other gro
ceries. This led to a dissolution of the
partnership. On April 11, 1S11. Audu
I bon, convinced of his unfitness for
2 business, sold out to Rozier and took
up the work for which he was better
fitted than any one who had lived be
fore or who has lived since and from
a fourth rate grocer became the great
i ornithologist The - grocery business
which Audubon abandoned grew until
finally It "extended throughout all of
upper Louisiana."-Kansas City Star.
A WOMAN OF QUICK WIT.
I Susan B. Anthony Never Lacked a
Ready Reply.
Few lives so lend themselves to dra
) matic narration as Susan B. Anthony's,
1 says the Delineator. It ranged from
5 tragedy to comedy, with scattered bits
of melodrama, she ever in the center of
the stage. With her everything was
always intensely realistic-not acting.
- Miss Anthony had a peculiar faculty
1 of condensing a whole speech into a
e single sentence. F-- instance, when
I she heard men lame..ung that the pro
5 fession of teacher was not respected as
- much as the other professions, "Do you
not see that so long as society says
wome. Las not brains enough to be a
docror, lawyer or minister, but has
1 pleniy to be- a teacher, every man of
you who condescends to teach tacitly
admits before all Israel and the sun
3 that he has no more brains than a wo
a man?" And when Horace Greeley said
t to her at Albany, "You know the bal
lot and bullet go together-if you vote,
are you ready to fight?" instantly she
retorted, "Yes, Mr. Greeley, just as you
fought in the late war-at the point of
i a goose quill!" Again, when she was
i talking on dvorce and the Rev. A. D.
1 Mayo, thinking to annihilate her, said,
I "You are not married; you have no
business to be discussing marriage,"
"Well, Mr. Mayo," she answered, "you
are not a slave; suppose you quit lec
turin: on slavery!"
THE SINUOUS EEL
It Will Bite Long After It Has Been
Decapitated.
Eels are peculiar even among fishes.
- A strange and mysterious race, the
I difficulty of killing them Is not the
least of their peculiarities. Very many
1 of us have been annoyed by the ordi
,nary eel that has seized our worm and
a then tangled up our line in its slimy
a coils. You may cut off the head of an
1 eel-in the manner recommended by
the S. P. 0. A.-and leave its body full
Sof squirms and wriggles, for the eel
t is a hateful and uncanny creature. :I
,have been told that the true method is
first to cut off the eel's tail and that
Safter this the severance of the head
I brings all life and movement to an
,end. As to this. I cannot say, for 1
- only heard this recently and have not
- since had to deal with a sinuous eal.
3 A correspondent has cited an instance
of a conger left apparently dead for
twenty-four hours on the beach, which
then bit three fingers from the hand of
r a small boy who came to handle it I
can well believe this. I shall not easily
forget the eerie shock which I had on
a certain occasion in Wales. I had
caught a large eel on a night line set
for pike. We had severed his head and
left him for some hours on the bank.
leaving a good hook in his gullet. In
the evening he was presented to a
small boy. who bore him off in triumph
as a supper dish. Half an hour later
t the boy's mother appeared, with some
Sconcern and indignation, to relate tha'
Sthe head had bitten the boy severely
twhen he tried to remove the excellent
hook. And this was no conger! The
occurrence seemed to me like the hor
ror in one of Kipling's most weird sto
L ries of uncanny horror. Whether these
posthumous wounds by eels betoken
the remnants of life in their severed
portions or a mere mechanical flicker
of the nervous system only the biolo
gist could say. And perhaps he would
be only making a guess.-St. James'

A LOST THE CASE.
t ASimple Test to Which the Defendant
Objected.
SAn English solicitor was defending
a fruit broker in an action brought in
1 a London court for the recovery- of
> $100, the price paid for a consignment
1 of figs which the plaintiff declared to
I be unfit for human food. The defense
alleged that, although moderately dis
i colored by salt water, as the plaintiff
r knew when he bought them, the figs
were perfectly wholesome. The figs
were in court.
The plaintiff, a coster, who conducted
his own case, was skillfully cross cx
?amined. The trial was obviously going
.against him, and once or twice 1:e re
s torted so hotly that the judge threat
ened to commit him for contempt.
r At length the coster grew desperate
y and, turning to the opposing counsel,
.hoarse and perspiring, he said:
"Look here. guv'nor, you say them
figs are good to eat, and 1 say they
ain't That's all there is between us,
ain't it? Now, s'elp me, if you'll eat
two of them figs and you ain't sick
immediately afterward I'll lose :.iy
case."
The judge at once saw the propriety
of this suggestion and asked the law
Iyer what he proposed to do.
"Your honor is trying this case, not
I," was the reply.
t"No, no! The offer is made to you."
said the judge.
A hurried consultation took place.
Counsel suggested that it was the so
licitor's duty to submit to the experi

2 ker himself was then asked if he would
risk it

Cherry History.
It is still asserted in schoolbooks that
cherries were introduced to England
by the "fruiterer" or greengrocer of
Henry VIII.; also, that they were noi
common for a hundred years after that
time. This is an error. Mr. Thomas
Wright found the name in every one
of the Anglo-Saxon vocabularies which
he edited. So common were they and
so highly esteemed that the time for
gathering them became a recognized
festival-"cherry fair" or "feast." And
this grew into a proverbial expressior
for fleeting joys. Gower says the fri
ars taught that "life is but a cherye
fayre," and Hope "endureth but a
throwe, right as it were a cherye
feste." There is more than one record
of the purchase of trees for the king's
garden at Westminster centuries be
fore Henry VIII. was born. But Pliny
contradicted the fable, as if in pro
phetic mood. After telling that Lu.
cullus first brought cherries to '.,.me
(from Pontus, in (80 A. U. C.), he adds
that in the course of 120 years they
have spread widely: "even passing
over sea to Britain."-Cornhill Maga
zine.
The First English Bookmaker.
Both the Derby and the Oaks owe
their names to that Earl of Derby who
kept a pack of staghounds near Epson
during the last quarter of the eight
eenth century and resided at a hunt
ing box called the Oaks. Fifty years
later a spiteful description of the Oaks
and its jockeys was recorded in the
diary of Charles Greville. In the re
port of the first' Derby run the names
of five starters and of all the riders
are missing and there is no betting
quotation.
As the earliest known bookmaker
Vauxhall Clarke, was hanged, not for
welshing, but for highway robbery
betting on the race course could not
at that period have been a particularly
profitable profession. Jockeys did noi

aries, but with a fee of a guinea were

Financial Poetry.
An unusual album was presented to
Willis Clark. brother of Lewis Gaylord
Clark, a poet, on one occasion, witt
a request for "some rhymes."
Mr. Clark was at the house of a
farmer, and the man's daughter had
turned an old account book into an
autograph album in which were in
scribed the names of her various
friends and relatives below appropriate
sentiments.
Mr. Clark saw his opportuot5 ased

Pepys on May Dew.
In I'epys' time May dew'-that is
dew gathered from the grass-on a May

Very Sagacious.
A farmer had a very sagacious dog
which he had trained to count his
sheep as they passed through a partic
ular opened gate, against which a pile
of stones were placed for the dog's use.
As each sheep passed through the dog
placed one of the stones &ide. One
day, much to the farmer's surprise, he
found the dog trying tc break a stone
in half, and on himself counting the
fock he found there had been an ad
dition in the night of a lamb.

"Let me have five two-cent stamps,

office.
"Yessum," he said, handing them

"Can't you let me have them in one

"'Certainly, ma'am," said the young
man. "Can I send them home for
you?"
"Oh, no; I don't live far away, and
I am going straight home. I wouldn't
put you to the trouble."
"No trouble at all," said the polite
official. "I haven't very much to do
today, and I could easily spare an
hour."
"Very much obliged," said the lady,
smiling sweetly. "Dear me," she add
ed, putting on a stamp, "what a bother
it is to stamp letters! Why can't we
send letters and let the postoffice send
in their bill once a month?"
"They might just as well," said the

Catching a Bride.
Among certain Siberians the bride
groom is not permitted to have a wife
until he can catch her. But they do
not give him a fair race in the open.
The bride, surrounded by her female
friends, awaits him in a big 1:ent. As
soon as she sees him she runs oft.
He follows like Hippomenes after Ata
lanta. But instead of obstacles being
thrown in the way of the bride they
are thrown across the path of the
bridegroom. The pursuing groom falls
over old women, chairs, tables, stones
and fishing rods or is tripped up by
ropes. Only when it is feared he
might give up and sulk and go away
without the fleeting lady is he permit
ted to overtake her. Then as she falls
into his outstretched arms it may be
imagined she utters some equivalent
of "This is so sudden!"
FANTAN AT MACAO. .
Gambling Houses of the Monte Carlo of
the East.
Macao, a Portuguese-Chinese port at
the mouth of the Canton river, in
China, is the Monte Carlo of the east.
One must wait until evening to see the
famous "fantan" houses. The Interi
ors are brilliantly lighted with oil
lamps (for Macao boasts neither elee
tricity nor gas) and furnished with cost
ly Canton blackwood elaborately carved
and upholstered in velvet. There are
two floors. The cooly class remains
on the ground floor, where the actual
games take place, but in the room
above, immediately over the table in
the room below, there is a square i
"wenl" with a rail around it and a
narrow table furnished with betting
books and pencils, cigarettes, etc.
The visitor may take a seat and look
diown at the game, which fealt' seems
fair and simple. A. man sits at the
head of the table with a huge heap of
brass "cash" before him and a slender
wand in his hand. He takes up a
handful of the coin and puts it on the
table, covering it with a brass hat.
Then the betting begins, the bets being
laid on the number 1, 2, 8 or 4, after
which the banker takes up the hat and
counts out th'e cash in fours, separat
lag them with his cane, the number
left when the last "four" Is removed
being the subject of the betting. These
houses. numerous as they are, maje
an enormous income and are a source
of large revenue to Macao.-Elxchange.
IAPANESE PAGODAS.4
Enormous Pendulums Render These
Old Structures Earthquake Proof.
The only old structures in Japan
which seem to be earthquake proC .'e
the pagodas. which were erected before
the temples. There are many which
are 700 or 800 years old and as solid
as when first built.
There is areason for this,8and itlies
in their construction. A pagado is
practically a framework of heavy tim
bers which starts from a wide base
and is in itself a substantial structure,
but rendered still more stable by a
peculiar device. Inside the framework
and suspended ,from the apex Is a
long, heavy beam of timber two feet
thick or more. This hangs from one
end of the four sides. Four more heavy -
timbers, and if the pagoda be very
lofty still more timbers, are added to
these. The whole forms an enormous
pendulum, which reaches within six
inches of the ground.
When the shock of an earthquake
rocks the pagoda the pendulum swings
In unison and keeps the center of grav
ity always at the base of the frame
work. Consequently the equilibrium
of the pagoda is never disturbed, and
this Is the explanation of the great
age of many of them, when from their
height one would suppose them to be
peculiarly susceptible to the effects of
the earthquake.
Wanted a Bargain.
One day a small Cincinnati boy came
the office of the express company. It
Igave the rate for money orders, and
after studying it for a few minutes he
walked up to the cashier and said bold

"I wantamoeorr.
"How large a one, my boy?" the
clerk inquired benignantly.
"Well, let's see," pondered the little
fellow. "The rate for a ten dollar or
der is 8 cents, isn't It?"

"Well, I want a drum and pair of
some candy. Ten dollars will be
enough."
Then he fished through his pockets
and triumphantly placed a nickel and
three coppers before the astonished
clerk. It took ten minutes to convince
the youngster that nothing lees than
$10.08 could buy a money order for
$10.-St. Louis G4obe-Demoomtt.
