The consequences were, first, that the maids, including the cook, loft. Second, that the man had to go out for all of his meals and became a slave to a cross-eyed waiter; and, third, that his wife divorced him for the winter, the grounds of complaint being that he growled continually of cold feet, though this fact was not al lowed to reach the newspapers. The Idea came to him one evening after the cross-eyed waiter had re turned his quarter to him with the I . >' I v ■■A unasked advice that he miglit need it to buy petrol for ills flying machine, and that the waiting brotherhood rec ognized no smaller coin than half a dollar. m He thereupon swore a dire oath that he would shake the mud of New York from his shoes for the win ter and go to Europe; and, "by gol ly"—here is the idea -"there would be not a tip on the way, if be could help It. No! sir. Not on your life." Appropriately, first of all he struck a place of palms, not the kind that grow upon hands, but of the tree fam ily. This was Funchal, in the Madeira Islands. When he had found that there were no chewing gum parlors or moving picture shows, with two and a half hours of refined vaudeville thrown In —things which he never patronized at Imme, but now felt a feverish anxiety to indulge in. lie con sulted the head waiter at his hotel, to whom, heedless to say, he had not confided his That functionary Insisted that life was a blank without a ride in a "caros," or sledge drawn by bullock, and a caros was accordingly engaged and the expedition set out, the sextant, brass tube and oil stained manuscript usual in explora tions being conspicuous by their absence. Dur ing the course of the perilous bumping over the stones the driver in the intervals of smiting his oxen and greasing the runners held a conversa tion with him which might have been intelligent had he understood even one-fifth of it. When the earns returned to the hotel, the driver held "riHTKICANS vow up ten fingers and ejaculated, "Teen hunder rels." "Holy smoke!" said tlie man. "You thiev ing blackguard—here." and handed him a dollar and a half—"Now be off with you." ing the other occupants of the verandah were horrified to hear a succession of expletives Issu ing from the man's mouth as he read in his Bae deker that 1,000 reis was a dollor. The man next moved on to Alexandria. He had forgotten every care but his vow He still clung to the idea, lie climbed down the steps Into the barge-like boat with the crowd, mostly warm-cHinate-seeking Americans, and thought he might Investigate its Pharaohs and see if there was anything in the story of ihe plagues of Egypt. When he did land, after having circumvented by a blank and uncomprehending stare the head boatman's insinuation that "leetel mona" was a desirable tiling, his bags were dumper on the quay and he found himself *he center of an ad miring crowd, conspicuous among which was the head boatman, whom he thought he had said fare well to forever. Pointing to Ills bags, he said, serenely, "hotel." A pleased grin ran around his audience, who all looked at the head boatman, who shook his head. The man held up half a dollar. Contrary to expectation, there was no rush for his baggage. Suddenly the head boat man, with a grave and impressive air, advanced. "You give dolla-me half dol!a-.backsheesh eh?" The man looked about him. The idea did not eem so precious. It was growing late. After •II, It wasn't so much.

The man, fortified by the presence of some others with whom he had scraped acquaint ance in the hotel dining room, blindly delivered himself into the hands of this Grecian Philistine. When they had worn an eighth of an inch off the soles of their shoes tramping, the bold Philo poulos, on the steps of the Acropolis, thrust his hand into his bosom and drew out—no, not a pis tol, but a small bag, which he held out with an air of proud independence. The man looked the other way. The Idea was holding tight. An English girl, whom he had neglected to inform that he was married, lightly touched his arm and whispered, "You must give him a tip—he's so picturesque " At that moment the man lost his idea He ostentatiously gave Pliilopoulos a handful of coins. It is all very sad. but the man gets along bet ter since he has lost his idea. Former Bull Fighter's Museum For 46 years the Corona family had occupied the plain two-story house called "Casa de Co rona" on the Viga canal, in the dilapidated vil lage known as El Puente del Jamaica. This vil lage is reached now by the Ixtapalpa electric car, being the first step beyond the head of the canal, and whatever of fame or interest it enjoys it derives solely from the old house at the southern extremity of its one street, the house of Corona, which contains the bull fighter's museum A morning is ample time for the trip, Lillian Webster says in the Mexican Herald, and while people from the four corners of the world have discovered this museum, as the register reveals, 'there are many people in the city who have hardly heard of it; yes, to the lover of the quaint, curious and historic it is certainly well worth a visit, for Juan Corona during some 25 years was gathering from here, there and everywhere a val uable collection of curiosities. He was a Sunday bull fighter and used to fight in the Bucareli ring, which does not exist now, but every day In the week he was a collector and a philanthropist, who by his generosity and kindness endeared himself not only to the people of his own village but to all people with whom he came In contact. He died 21 years ago, but his daughter, a kind. 1 m ■'V.

One can walk down the corridors, on whose walls great paintings are falling into strings from age, and climb the stone stairs, where a comely servant will greet one and show the curiosities, or, better, let one look at everything to the heart's content. In the upper corridor there are a number of immense earthen Jars which were excavated at a point not far distant end which are valuable samples of the work of potters of other days. In one corner of this corridor there is a quaint foun tain :md pool In whose walls are laid in mosaics formed of hits of broken glass and porcelain, the whole ornamented with hideous stone Indian idols. From the corridor one passes through the household kitchen to the old one, which is never used and the walls of which are literally lined from top to bottom with every class of earthen cooking vessels, wooden spoons, forks and choco late beaters. Near by is the dining room, whose long table contains a quaint collection of vases and dishes, while the walls are hung with pic tures and painted porcelain howls, in two of which arc the portraits of Maximilian and Car lotta. There are dishes and plaques made by the Indians of remote regions which even in this day of railway facilities are difficult to find. There are tail "ollas" where soup for a regiment could be made. The dining room opens into the bedroom, where, in a corner, stands the silver bedstead on which Santa Ana died, it being elaborately dressed with hangings and covers of coarse white lace. On the wall by the head of the bed is a rare group of guns, swords and pistols. In an other corner of the room stands an old-fashioned four-posted bed which belonged to a lady in wait ing to Carlotta. and at its side is a hand-carved leather trunk which belonged to the patriot Hi dalgo. Above the trunk is the carved ivory handled rifle of Miramon. bearing his arms and name. The daughter, in speaking of the school for poor children which occupied a room on the first floor of the house for years, said: "Yes, father established the school and maintained it for many years. In more recent years tile teacher was paid by the town government and three years ago the school was moved by that authority to a house in the village immediately back of this,- which is known as 'La Resurrec tion.' " my same When asked about the sale of articles of the museum Ehe said: "Yes, we have had some offers, but they have been made principally by tourists and have usually been very small, while many of ihe things here cost my father much money. For example, the gun of Miramon and the cross of 'La Musa Mexieana' each cost $500. many things were presented to him by friends who knew of his interest in rare and historic things, but," she added, tenderly, "everything is very dear to us and we do not care to part with anything."
