L jThe capitol is a shelter for the shel terless during cold and nasty weather, says the Washington Post. It is much more agreeable to sit in the warm gal leries and nod through the speeches and debates than to shiver over a tire less stove in an attic. A number of im pecunious old gentlemen have discov ered this and avail themselves of tho hospitality of the government with profit and comfort to themselves and harm to no one, for on inclement days few people have enough ambition to go up to congress, even when matters of great interest are under discussion. A large contingent of decayed gentility tn«b n j n ii., «si . " ... make daily pilgrimages there, with the excuse that they are interested in legis lation. Some of the more fortunate ones carry a "snack" in their pockets, and can be seen surreptitiously convey ing morsels of bread and cheese, in some cases the fragrant bologna, from their pockets to their mouths. The majority of these worthies prefer the bouse side, wh ere there is some move ment and excitement, but those who seek rest rather than entertainment go to the senate gallery, where it is poasi t,lo to s i ee ,, p cacP f u iiy through the long speeches. Two very much out at-the-elbow gentlemen heard in the rotunda discussing tut? which gallery they should g<h -i , vant to be cheered up, and they are still fighting about tho currency bill," said the tall, slim one, whose legs were too long for his trousers and whose nose looked as if ho had been accustomed to another sort of cheer, but his thick comrade, who had been cheered already, decided in favor ot t,le senate, and they separated.

A Spot nt Will.!, Sn pcrst it Ion, Wedding Parties All Tara A bridge which is carefully avoided by wedding couples because of tlie t nul it ion-: which surround it spans a stream called the goldbrook, in the parish of lloxnc, near Eye, in the coun ty of Suffolk, England. standing in the center of nil open field at Iloxne is an obelisk to the memory ol Edmund, king of the East Angles, who was killed by tlie Danes in 870. On the site of the monument stood nn oak tree, in the branches of which tlie king took refuge from his foes. At nightfall he emerged from his leafy hiding place and secreted himself under the above mentioned bridge. A wedding part-; passing over the bridge ut night ob served the king's gold spurs glittering in the moonlight, and in this way he was betrayed to his enemies, who took him back to the oak tree and shot him with arrows. Local tradition has it that many years ago the existing in scription of the event was followed by the words: "Cursed be tlie wedding pa: ty that passes over this bridge." No such words are now visible, but the tradition is so well known that bridal parties prefer taking a circuitous route rather than pass over Goldbrook bridge I T he Slauinter of Elephant.. In Berlin a number of African travel ers, colonial politicians uml scientific men havo formed a "committee for the purpose of taming and preserving the African elephant." It is computed, ac cording to statistical data of the ports of ivory, that no fewer than frorr. fifty to sixty thousand elephants in Africa are killed every year, mittee say, that being so, the time is not far distant when the last elephant in Africa will, says the London Daily News, have disappeared. With such prospect in view, the committee have decided to put a stop to this mis chievous slaughter. By taming and maintaining the last representatives of a fast-dying-out animal world tho com mittee hope to preserve unimpaired the enormous power the elephant is known to possess, so that ho may be of still further use to mankind. The German Coloninl company have already devoted a large sura of money to this purpose, and now the colonial department of the foreign ofiiee have augmented this sum by granting a liberal allowance. ex Tho com A Bniiltin Earthquake Story.

It was the duke of Wellington who was cred ited with possessing fourteen overcoats, 1 from which he selected each day the one best suited to the prevailing tem pcmtnre, and perhaps his carefulness in this matter had much to do with the fact that he lived to the advanced age of eightv-four. vaut do ra "O! that's : t I EVERYBODY IS SUPERSTITIOUS. Point Ar^ned by n Louisville Second-ITrmd llealcr Who ll:ts Observed, "I don't believe there is a man living who is without his pet superstition," remarked a second-hand furniture deal er, says the Louisville Courier-Journal. "We constantly have people who sell us articles of household use, and come in after a few weeks—sometimes only days—and try to buy them back again, with the explanation that they had 'had had luck' ever since the sale was made and never would have good luck again until the bargain was undone. One woman who had sold us her grand rfiother's clock fairly wept because it was gone before she could buy it again. "The idea is not confined to unedu cated or ignorant people, by any means. At this very time I know a Louisville business man of great culture and re finement who is vigorously pursuing an old wooden desk which he owned many years ago —n deck on which lie made an enormous amount of money by a few lucky strokes of his pen. Tlie desk passed from hand to hand and out of his possession; ho is now earnestly en deavoring to trace it and purchase it, believing that recent business reverses and hard times will tlee rway if lie can only stretch hin legs once more undei that same old desk." Mirrors That Ai Trunsparrnt. A great many devices are known for the purpose of enabling people in a house to see what is going on in the street without opening their windows. A new invention of this nature is re ported from Ilalberstadt, Germany, be ing a plan for so silvering glass that it reflects the image when looked at from one side, but when looked at from tho other is ns transparent as ordinary window glass. If this is glazed in a dwelling-room window anyone inside can see all the life of the street, while any passer-by looking in at the win dow will see but a mirror and nothing more. This avoids, therefore, the annoyance sometimes encountered in glazing either clear window glass ground gluss, in combining the special advantages of both. One object would be that many people might stop to ad iust their personal appearance at such mirrors. An innovation on linos is that recently made in one of tho Vanderbilt ball or rooms, where the win dows by day become largo mirrors by night through mechanical arrange meats, an l thus add simply but won der/ullv to the brilliance of the scene. reverse ' About one woman in twenty owns a pocket knife and her selection is some what different from that of her brother. cm . . ,, .
