An Extraordinary Request Which Excited th. Curiosity of Country Board. r. "I never look at that old clock on the mantelpiece," observed my friend Mrs. W. as we sat in her parlor one evening last week, "that it does not call to my mind an amusing Incident connected with my trip to the northern part of this state last summer. "I was stopping," she went on, "In a Quaint little village at the only hotel in the place. Every evening upon retiring I heard voices in an adjoining room. My cariosity naturally prompted me to Uatea. The conversation was usually of a commonplace order, but what really attracted my attention was this strange request nightly repeated: " 'Now, Jovilla, put that infernal beast oat of the way and oover him up.' It was a man's voice, gruff, though, I fan cied, kindly. ..This peculiar request was Invariably met with saute such response Mthis: " 'Oh, Tom, shame upon youl What would dear mother say if she knew how you treated her present? "The voice this" time was distinctly feminine and rather shrill and complain ing. Of course I was fairly consumed with curiosity. What manner of beast was this which the poor woman was thus obliged to 'put out of the way and cover np7" And why did they keep a 'beast' in their bedroom anyway? . "In vain I pondered over this seeming mystery. In vain I fretted and guessed. Tom appeared to be so kind and even tempered too. Well, I could stand it no longer, so I finally resolved to ask him frankly for an explanation. " 'Mr. Tom,' I said to him one morn ing, 'pray excuse my apparent rudeness and curiosity, but won't you tell me about that beast you keep in your room and why you wish to have it covered up very evening before you retire? "A gleam of mirth lighted up his coun tenance. 'So you've heard us a-talkin, neighbor,' he said. 'Well, it's just this a-way: " 'Jovilla, she's my wife, an she seta great store by her ma, which, between you an me an that there gatepost, I don't. So long 'bout last Christmas the old woman give us a clock. It wasn't much to look at, but it had the awfulest tick yon ever hoard. Loud and soletnnlike It was, an it made me that nervous I wouldn't get no sleep o nights. " "Now, Jovilla," says I, "you'll have to put that tickin beast I always calls It a beast out of the way or muzzle it or su'thin, or Fll smash it with a ham mer, I will." So Jovilla she took it and wrapped it up in her flannel petticoat. " 'But may I never touch another drop of cider ef the cussed thing didn't tick louder than ever. That kinder made me mad, an I told her that if I heerd that tickin agin I'd stop it for good. "'So, you see, neighbor, Jovilla 'fixes It every night before she goes to bed so's it kain't make no noise. She just puts it in the washtu'b, throws a big fur robe . over it, shove it in the closet an shuts the door. '"An that, neighbor,' observed my rural acquaintance, Is what I mean by eeverin np the beast. '"New York Her ald. A Insurious Shanty. ' It the intelligent foreigner who comes to New York includes Shanty town in bis round of observation, it must sur prise him to see what a difference exists between the rude huts of that district nd the cabins of the very poor in Great Britain and France. The latter are built to last, while the New York shanty Is only expected to tide over a period of four or five years; bat, rude aa it is with out, the shanty is often the superior of th European cottage In Its furnishing. Well made furniture, carpets, staves and wall paper are common to the shan ty, while the peasant across the sea may have to content himself with an earthen floor and a bed built into the frame work of the house. On a recent evening a reporter saw a shanty that could not have cost $100. It had lace curtains at the windows, portieres worth about $10, framed pictures on the walls, and was lighted by a piano lamp with a silk shad. New York Son. Popular Myth. The time worn "million stamps" lie till survives and is likely to prove im mortal. People all over the country are trying to accumulate 1,000,000 canceled postage stamps, in the belief that a standing offer is made by the govern ment or by somebody of a big prise for sueh a oolleotion. Borne think that $10, 000 it the sum guaranteed, while others imagine that the reward is the endow ment of a permanent bed in a hospital. ,. . Th popular notion oa this, subject be ing omewhat undefined, letters asking about it are constantly received, at the postofflc department. But no denials serve to destroy the widespread faith in this strange chimera. Washington Let- Th Cruolfli of Louis XVI. It hat often been wondered what had become of th crucifix used by the Abbe Sdgeworth at the execution of Louis XVL Our Paris correspondent says it it Bow In the possession of the parish priest of St. Medard de Ouisiere, to Whom .it was given by on of hi flock, a Mm. rTEapilat, when the was dy ing. She enjoined him never to part with it because it was a sacred relio, and th expected that Louis, the martyr, would on day figure in the calendar of the church, along with his ancestor, St. Louis. The crucifix, with th Christ on it, is in old carved ivory and was prob ably made at Dieppe. London News. A butcher of Manasquan, N.

T.UnntWH Park Earthquake. A letter received from a party of tour- ' Ists who have a winter camp in the Na tional park gives particulars of the earth quakes which worn reported a week ago from Livingston, Mon. ' This letter ia by way of Beaver can yon, Ida., and says that for the last two weeks the. subterranean noises have been distinct, and there have been nearly ev eryday eruptions in difforent parts of the park near the Giant nud Giantess gey sers, also near the Great Castle geyser. There have been openings in the earth through which came clouds of steam or smoke, it was hard to tell which. When these eruptions commenced, cattle and horses of the vicinity showed great nn easiness and would go wandering about with the evident idea of escape from the neighborhood. The few people who were there were at first badly scared, but finally made up their mind thatrtt was nothing more than an aggravated explosion from the shooting geyser. However, the openings in the earth were something entirely new and indicated that the shock experi enced was of earthquake origin. Some times there would be rumbling sounds and jarring of the earth for fully 10 sec onds before the explosion came, and the explosions were sufficiently strong to perceptibly jar the cooking utensils about the camp. Cor. Chicago Tribune. Lord Salisbury's Boom at th. Fair. One of the most interesting contribu tions from England to the Chicago ex hibition is to be a reproduction of what is perhaps the finest example in this country of sixteenth century decorative wood carving. This is the famous ban queting hall at Hatfield House, the Hert fordshire seat of the Marquis of Salis bury. A facsimile, exact in everything but size, has been reproduced by Messrs. Hampton & Sons of Pall Mall. The re production, permission to execute which was given by Lord Salisbury, is 40 feet long the original being 8020 feet broad and 28 high, the whole of the internal surface being constructed of beautifully carved oak, cut from the solid block and shaded to the deep, rich tint of the an tique work by the process known as "fuming." The Cecil coat of arms, which has also been cut from a solid block, and the floor, like the original, will be composed of white and black marble. Messrs. Hampton & Sons will complete the en semble by furnishing the hall with chairs, tables and armor of the Eliza bethan period, and had time allowed replicas of the tapestry at Hatfield House would have been supplied. As it is, tap estry will be used as near as possible like the original. London Standard. ; - Solid With th. Administration, ApolonariB Karoowsky has made a hit with the treasury department, Apolo naria was only 4 a day contract labor inspector at Ellis island, but he is a much bigger fellow today. When he heard that his chief. Colonel Weber, had re signed, Apolonaris decided that he would follow suit and forthwith forwarded his resignation to Washington. Secretary Carlisle was impressed with the style and diction of Apolonaris' letter of resignation and telegraphed to Colo nel Weber asking him why the inspector had resigned at this particular time and what sort of a fellow he is. "Don't know," was Colonel Weber's answer to the first query. "Good and efficient officer," was his answer to the second. Thereupon Secretary Carlisle returned Apolonaris' resignation, inclosing with it a polite note requesting him to remain at his station and assuring him that be cause of his politics he need not fear re movalNew York Advertiser. A Gam. Prwarv. Ia Salt Lake. Antelope island in the Great Salt lake, with an area of 82,000 acres, bids fair soon to afford the finest hunting of any place in North America. Colonel William P. Cody (Buffalo Bill), accompanied by some English capitalists, recently visited the island, after having searched all through the intermountain country for a suitable place to establish and stock a game park, and it is reported that Cody has offered $100,000 for the island. J. H. White and J. E. Dooly, who own the property, re fused the offer, as they also have plans for stocking the island with game. A car load of rare game was received on Tuesday, consisting of live elk, moose and black tailed deer. Cor. Denver Re publican. Quail Eaally Tamed. Peter Landin has been in the habit of throwing out feed near his house for a flock of quail daring the winter. When th. late storm commenced, he put the feed under a box up against the house. The quail took shelter under the box, when Mr. Landin took them into his house, where they enjoyed the warmth to the full. One remained in the house for several days, refusing to go out and join the others till the storm was over. These quail are special pets of Mr. Lan din, and woe be unto the person that molests them. He pets them so they will clean ths thistles from his farm. Wanted to S.. th. World'. Fair. The Italian Princess Vicovaro, daugh ter of Lorillard Spencer of New York, not long ago received a letter at her vil la near Lucerne, Switzerland, saying that if $3,000 were not deposited in a certain place by a fixed time her villa wonld be blown np. She handed the letter to the police, who, by pretending to comply with the demand, caught the writer a young man who admitted he was driven to the attempt by his intense desire to visit America and tee the fair at Chicago. Paris Letter.

These perambulating fashion plates bite the amber tip of a truly English short briarwood pipe with a tenacity worthy of the prince himself. It's English to smoke a pipe in public places and also on the street, and that settles it But it is in New Haven and Cambridge that the fever has broken out like smallpox pustules. Thin, concave chested student chappies struggle along Church and State streets, or hold np the front walls of Treagert or Huebleins", every blessed one of 'em nursing a pipe, the shorter and stumpier the more the chappie thinks he's in it It's really comical to observe the dean boys in couples, trios and squads, pipe in mouth, trousers rolled up, with the most killing Piccadilly swagger, march along like children from a nursery school. The pipes bite their tongues, give them bron chitis, disgust everybody else, but they are in the swim, and that a enough for chappie, deah boy. Cor. Washington Star. An Interesting Us. of Photography. A French photographer lately invented a process by which a bit of ordinary pa perthe leaf of a book, for example can be made sensitive to the light without affecting the rest of the page. Acting on this hint, the French war minister has begun to take the portraits of conscripts and recruits on the paper which gives their height, complexion, age, etc., and the cheapness and swiftness of the oper ation, which is already in use in the French army, is something remarkable. It costs only a cent to get two copies of a portrait of Jacques Bonhomme one for his individual register and the other for his muster roll and so rapid is the process that in a few hours a whole reg iment can be so photographed. The sol diers file along one by one, and each sits for three seconds in the photographic chair, and the thing is done. Boston Advertiser. Leaving No Stone Unturned. "Take all my beard off and give me a short hair cut," said the man in the ad joining chair as he threw himself upon the mercy of the razor wielder. "What, take off all dat fine beard?" in quired the barber in astonishment. "Yes," replied the customer. "I hav been cultivating this beard for over 20 years, and I hate to part with it. It must go, as I am after a job in the interior de partment, and I got a straight tip from a Georgia friend that Hoke Smith is par tial to men who do not wear any hair on their faces. Take it all off," he added as he leaned back in the chair and in dulged in mental speculation over his prospeot. for obtaining employment in Uncle Sam's vineyard. Washington Post ' Shingle, by th. Carload. The northwest is sending immense quantities of shingles to the east just now. Fifteen to 20 carloads a day was the average freightage of this commod ity passing through Seattle in the first half of the month, and one day a solid train of 80 carloads of shingles left that point for the east. , John W. Bookwalter, the Ohio mil. lionaire, said the other day, "I cannot tell yon how much money I have spent trying to build a machine which will fly, but I think that I have a model under way now that will solve the problem." It is said that a large hotel for the ac commodation of colored people is to be built in Slater, Mo., by colored capitalists. "Only the Scars Remain' Says Hknby Hudson, of the James Smith Woohn Machinery Co., Philadelphia, Pa., who certi fies as follows: " Among the many testimoni als which I see in regard to cer tain medicines performing cures, cleansing the blood, etc., none Impress me more than my own case. Twenty years ago, at the age of 18 years, I had swellings come on my legs, which broke and became run nlng sores. Our family phy sician could do me no good, and it was feared that the bones would be affected. At last, my good old Mother Urged Me to try Ayer's Sarsaparilla. I took three bottles, the sores healed, and I have not been troubled since. Only the sears , remain, and the memory of the past, to remind me of the good Avar's Sarsaparilla has done me. I now weigh two hundred and twenty pounds, and am in the beat of health. I have been on the road for the put twelve years, have noticed Ayer's Sar saparilla advertised in all parts of the United States, and always take pleas ure in telling what good it did for me."
