One night when Dickens had retire at Gad's Hill he found he could no sleep. So he got up, dressed and de termined to walk to London, abou thirty miles away. He reached tb suburbs early in the morning and a; plied at an early coffee house for some refreshments. When he had finishes he gave the proprietor a sovereign, the smallest coin he had with him. "It's a bad un." said the man, bit Ing at it and trying to twist it in al directions, "and I shall give you il charge." The coin did have a suspicious look Dickens had carried some substance i his pocket which had oxidised it. See lag that matters looked awkward, hr said, "But I am Charles Dickens!" "Come, that won't do; any mal could say be was Charles Dickens How do I know?" The man had been victimised t week pevious and would take a. reon chanes. At length Dickens sug /ested that they go to a chemst'i and have the cola tested. A chemat was atilly fund when the shops has -pene. The chemist immediately roe eised the novelist, In spite oft hl dusty appearae, sad the cofee bowu pr was .stActMefly convinced fat he had not been enaertaafg as meesmenoe sag. Passing of the "Writing Mastes." One sometimes regrets the passing of the "writing master" of the schools oe the last century, for even in thes days of typewriting the signature must be handwritten. There seems to be a sort of slapldash, conceited belief among the users of type ma chines that everybody can recognise his personal signature. This is as unfounded belief, and in a drawer by his side there are letters signed-by unknown persons who have neves learned to write their name. Their beakers may possibly recognise the hieroglyphic. But it would ease mat ters If the user of the type machine would learn to write his own name distinctly. We are not all everybody's bankers. Point of View.

This insect, in order to trap the flies, etc., on which it feeds, hides on a leaf and spins a web of neutral color, making an il lusion so perfect that the prey not only does not fy, but seems attracted by the peculias termination of the web on the edge of the leaf. This is a perfect knot in appearance and gives to the trap the general shape of a miniature palm-leaf fan with indented handle.-Harper's Weekly. Yellow Writing Paper Easy on Eyes. Oculists have often called attention to the fact that the eyes are easily fatigued by the reflection from white paper, especially when the surface is under a strong light. Since green is known to be the color most restful to the eyes, it is a common practice to use wall papers and draperies of that color in libraries and private studies. For writing paper, however, green is an unsatisfactory color. It imparts a reddish appriarance to the writing, and makes it hard to read. Yellow writing paper is not open to the same objection. In strong day light it is softer than pure white pa per, and in artificial light is not too dark. Black letters on a yellowish background show clear and distinct. Many mathematicians use yellow pa per in figuring long and dimecult cal relations, and many writers have adopted it for manuscripts. It bh the additional merit of cheapness. Youth's Companion. RETAIN THEIR RACIAL TYPE Opsles In Spain Are of That Country Only Because It is Their birthplace. One of the things to attract the notice of every traveler that visits Spain is that strange race which he finds scattered here and there in small groups in the remote rural districts or near the great centers of population. It presents a type that can be mista km for no other in the Spanish do minions. The lips thick, the eyes large, black and piercing, the hair long, black and straight, the complexion olive tinted. the Spanish gipsy, whether encamped in a sheltering ravine or under the arches of an aqueduct or in the shad ow of an overhanging cliff, is indeed Spanish because born in Spain, but in all else he is a gipsy. Time was when Spaniards of the true blue blood called gipsies "New Castilians," or "Egyptians," or "Moor ish footpads;" but while their traits ~ave undergone no change their name is now deSfltely gitani or gipsies. Between fifty and sixty thousand is the number of them now in Spain, says America. Most of them have no fixed abode; but in some parts, and notably in Andalunai, there are several small settlements, for towns they can hardly be called, where these wanderers have taken peommsson of caves into the mountain side, whence they sally forth to tell fortunes and to filch. Wher. ever they are, they are nclined to be qusresisome among themselves and to oentre. their aruments by mesas o Crasd Iseking kni ves, which they wield with great dexterity. I. B. BZNDEL.
