J ^ In this lamp the oil is stored in e the body of a rat, which sits upon g the top of a pole. Half way down s the pole, and resting on a projecting $ bracket, is a saucer, in the centre v of which is a pin that connects it j s with the bracket on which it rests, j t In this saucer and leaning over its j, side is a wick. When the saucer j, is filled with oil and the wick is lit s * thefe is presented a lamp that exhi- d '-bits no peculiar qualities until the i greater part of the oil is consumed. 0 Then suddenly a stream which suf- t fices to replenish the now nearly ex- s hausted 6aucer, issues from the ^ mouth of the rat. j. The saucer being full, no more oil p is discharged from the rat's mouth 0 until it is again nearly empty, when d v the creature sitting above yields a ] further supply, and so on till its n store of oil is exhausted. The manner in which this is accomplished a is simple. f, A peg that rises in the centre of r the saucer and attaches it to the sup- p port on which it rests, terminates c in a knob or cap; but the peg is hoi- v low and is connected with the body e of the rat by a tube which runs along ^ the bracket and then ascends d through the stand to the upper por- ] tion of the rat's body. d The pin. which stands in the cen- t< tre or tne saucer. 11 snouia De remeui- p .bered, is perforated immediately be- t< low its cap, or about half an inch s above the saucer. It is obvious, then. n that when the oil sinks to a point o at which the hole is exposed air will n enter and thus allow the oil to run " v out of the rat's mouth: but when this t hole is again covered by oil no fur- b ther air is admitted, and therefore e no more oil can run from the rat's s< mouth.?Philadelphia Record. s r A Test of Efficiency. Efficiency was the topic that was ^ being discussed at a gabfest in a Washington club the other night, r when Congressman John G. Rothermel, of Reading, was reminded of the g declaration of an esteemed party ^ named James. , t The aforesaid James attended a cirn cus some time since, where one of the big features of the show was a beautiful lion tamer. Entering the ring, followed by the lion, the fair charmer placed a lump of sugar between her pretty lips which the lion took from her with his teeth. Instantly James c sat upright and began to take no- I tice. t ? * j i* -? x ? t i ~ j l __ r "Ureat siuni, an ngm, ne iuuui> 1 shouted to the performer. "but I can " do it, too!" ij "Of course," scornfully replied the girl, who didn't appreciate having t her act minimized, "but do you real- I ly think you can?" t \ "Most assuredly," was the prompt 1 rejoinder of James, "just as well as the lion."

It is not safe fc roman or girl to pass along treets. The writer has on on* wo occasions had to dodge urch of a drunken negro.

Story of Miraculous Escape and SurVs cl prising Anti-Cliniav. lent When I was in South Africa, a ra_ correspondent of the Youth's Comti-vifoc 1 loft Uanp'wp nnp nf. :on- . - ? our ternoon, in company with a couple of tlle men who were traveling up-country. ions ^ we ^lac* were sjamboks?whips jnce made of a single strip of the hipposarv Potamus hide, and stout enough to 0^_ maim a man if the blow was well , jn directed. Suddenly we saw that the grass on our left was being disturbed sav over a pretty wide area, and out of her. curiosity we rode over. We found luch out that the grass was simply alive a;_ with hundreds of baboons marching one toward the hill. >ven We ?ught to have let them pass, ino- 5;>ut one" ?f tfce fellows suggested, in into a spirit of mischief, that we should jnty help them along. Before you could ings sa>* "knife" the three of us were in among them, and began to lash out ex- with our sjamboks in all directions. riVtf The baboons jabbered, and showed the their teeth, but never attempted to hor- attack us. We were safe so long as we were mounted. Pretty soon they ;her came to a clump of trees, which, they and tried to climb. But the trees were iere thorny and they had to give it up. 2on- Then they started for the hills again, ticn We drove them right to the foot of the the hills, but there we had to stop, and for we could not take our horses over test the rocks. The baboons swarpied up ana like acrobats. I didn't stop to think, the but was off my horse and after them, ays. My friends called to me to stay where . i T lvop Kut T n-oc 11 n that hill almost i of as quickly as the baboons were, low- A black old-man baboon was nearne est. and 1 made a rush for him. He the didn't run. *1 cut at him with the lold whip. He only bared his teeth and ir a snarled. I looked around. On every the side were big men baboons, and each i or bared his teeth as I caught his eye. the I lost my nerve and couldn't even ght, think of a way out. All I could do was eets to back up to a rock, keep the baiken boons at bay with my sjambok, and lay? wait there until my companions could em- come to my rescue. Before I'd gone nail two steps stones began to fly?stones ded of no small size, either. Luckily, a and, baboon is not a good marksman; he gal- makes a jump as he throws. Those lady baboons hit one another as often as hite they hit me. i of Very slo.wly I backed for the rock; rict- very slowly the baboons folfcwed. ice- They were waiting for. something. That gave me hope. If they didn't Idly mean to rush me, why not back down >ted the hill until my companions could the reach me? im- So I changed my direction, and arne amid the fusilade of stones approachicts. ed the brink of the declivity. I for reached it at last, and began care? of fully to back down. The stones fell has thicker than ever. In protection aess i had to hold my arms over my head, j ... . . , , j ...U 1 pen au tne time mere was a niueous jauour bering and screaming, unk Presently I was virtually underin neath some of them. The old black eral fellow who had first faced me pick'ded ed up a rock half as big as himself. >unt and dropped it. I dodged, stumbled ig- over a rock behind me, and fell. Then I knew what they were waitfor ing for. A score of them were on ^en, me in a moment. They tore at me heir and bit me fiercely. If they had not arts been so many they would have got chat me at once, but they got in each >ed, other's way, and damaged themselves ?ive as much as they did me. * f?r I tried to keep their nails away ess; from my eyes and face and throat, )urt and together we rolled oveV and t us 0ver down the slope of the hill. I *'ho was scratched and bleeding in a an(* dozen places, and my clothes were that torn to shreds; but somehow I was us not bitten very badly. Perhaps the arly pace was too great for any accurate workSo we bumped and rolled downhill, first I on top, then the baboons on top, then at last a rolling ball of-ba,iass boons with me inside. I was too scared to think even of death, al, tQ though if I had been alone, death was ujjj certain. All at once I heard the jon. sound of hoofs that scrambled over am the rocks, shouts in the English tongue and sjamboks'that whistled as . thov lnshpd around. Baboons turned I >pea ? tch to filmy things and took wing, the t )0ys sky cleared and turned bright blue, and I went to sleep. Full line legal blanks and blank books can be had at Herald Book Store.
