London Punch. A Victim of Ooaalp. Th Quickest Onea Ia the World Are Said to Be Ia Kansas City. F. 8. Dellenbaugh writes of "Tbe Quick Forge" in St. Nicholas, bis article telling of tbe training of horses for tbe fire department. Mr. Dellen buugb Bays : Tbe quickest horses in the world were at one time in Kansas City at tbe head quarters of its fire department, directly nuder the office of the chief, Mr. George C Hale. To Mr. Hale's genius more than to any other factor the qnick horse owed his first development, for Mr. Hale is the inventor of tbe earliest winging harness which made tbe quick horse possible. When Mr. Henry M. Stanley and his wife were in this country, they witnessed an exhibition drill of the Kansas City fire department. The drill so impressed tbe visitors that an account of it was published in a Lon don journal, and this English article brought an invitation to Mr. Hale to visit England as tbe representative of tbe American fire service at the interna tional fire tournament. Mr. Hale and a picked corps went to England, tak ing with them the remarkably qnick horses Joe and Dan, and they became world famous. As the quickest harness ing time of the Loudon fire brigade is 1 minute 17,V seconds aud the Kansas City horses were harnessed in 1 sec onds and were out of the engine house in less than 8 seconds, there could be no competition. In Kansas City four fine bays were harnessed to the hook and ladder truck almost as quickly as even Joe and Dan could jump into their har nesses. It was a pretty sight to see these four well kept horses spring to their places at the stroke of tbe goug and in two or three seconds stand ready to run with the apparatus. Joe was killed by an accident, but Dan, with a new mate, is still in service, and as qnick as ever. The record for quickest time from the engine house to tbe throwing of water on the fire is held by a Kansas City company. In this instance the horses were harnessed, a run of 2,194 feet (a little less than half a mile) was made, and water thrown from the hose in tbe wonderfully brief time of 1 minute 31 s seconds.

From the diary of three Englishmen in Yuunanese China : Eggs were brought to us. They were hard and black and had strong smells. "These are rotten !" we exclaimed.

The saying, "Fickle as a weather cock," ouce received a striking refuta tion in the experience of Dr. W. E. i Channing. The famous Boston divine, I being of n feeble constitution, was led to go to extremes in protecting himself against tbe cold, penetrating air of tbe winter in Boston. At such times noth ing would induce him to go out of tho house, even in a carriage, if the wind was from the east. A friend, not having beard from Dr. Channing for three weeks, notwithstand ing that the weather had been unusual ly mild and agreeable, feared that he might be ill and called at his house to inquire. He found Channing in his library, the sun streaming through tbe closed windows, and a blazing tire in the grate. Tbe room was almost suffo cating. Tbe doctor himself seemed in his usual health and spirits. Naturally tbe visitor asked why he was not enjoy ing the soft air and sunshine. Channing shook his head and said: "Impossible, my friend. I dare not, and you know I uever do, venture out of doors in an east wind." "But the wiud has been south for the last three weeks," urged his friend. "You are greatly mistaken," rejoin ed the doctor. "Look at the weather vane," and he pointed triumphantly to the weathercock of a neighboring church. "But that vane has not moved for the last three weeks. It wants oiling," was tbe response. The good doctor had been kept a pris oner for three weeks by a rusty weath ercock. Youth's Companion. A Native Australian Weather Praphe. j "Warrigul, " called Sergeant Dalton t) the block tracker, "look out for a high, dry spot for the camp tonight My buuuiouaud those black clouds up there say it's going to rain soon." The aborigine rolled over ou hia back, and for several minntes he scanned tbe somber banks above. Then he darted a glunce into tbe forest about. Dalton watched him, for he knew that the eye of a weuther prophet peered into the elements. Tbe whole time the black lay ou tbe ground, with his arms nnder hia head, he never moved a muscle. His eyes roll ed about in hia head like irresponsible pupiled white marbles, covering tbe whole space from the ground behind him to the horizon in front aud tbe earth rim of the block vault above bim, ou each side. Then he slowly closed his i lids for a moment aud rolled over on I his elbow, facing the sergeant. "No rain, massa. Plenty dry spell all along two months. " "How do you tell all this weather business?" the sergeant asked, for be knew by past experience that the weather prediction of any true Australian tribes man was more to be trusted than that from any scientifio meteorological bu reau. These people predict seasons of wind and rain with perfect accuracy. "See gum leaf?" said Warrigul, point ing to tbe eucalyptus trees. "Yes, plenty of them," assented Dal ton. "S'poiiin it rain, leaf lay down. S'posin it keep dry, leaf stand up. See, all leaf stand up to look for water. Wa ter long time off. "Lookou ground," continued tbe ab original busbuiun. "Gum leaf dry, turn up, crack loud. No rain. S'posin rain soon, leaf drink in wet first ; lay out. Plenty heavy dew all nights; plenty long dry spell ahead." Outing. A Curloua LUw fctory. When lions were still numerous and easily observed in southern Africa, they were sometime seen instructing one an other in voluntary gytuu:utics aud prac ticing their leaps, making a bush play the part of Ibe absent game.

The up town bound cable car appar ently was in the bands of a green mo- torman. At least that was the way tbe crowd of passengers accepted it when after each stop, it started up again with a violent jerk, which threw big men around like skittles. Straps were of no value. At Prince street a little old man got on and made his way to about the mid die of the car. He lost something of his mildness of expression when he was thrown suddenly and forcibly against a young woman, knocking off her bat, but he said nothing. Next a big man made a parabolio swing, landed and nearly knocked him through the win dow. Then tbe face of the little man grow very red. He pushed his way to the front door and, shaking his finger in tbe motorman's surly visage, threat ened to tbrow bim off the car aud run the thing himself. The motormau "sussed" back, but the excited little passenger talked fast aud dared him to do it again. Then he shut the door and , waited, and every one held bis breath when the bell rang. But the tight did not coiue off. Tbe Baits aad Where to Find Them. Frogs aro most plentiful on tbe shores of ponds and streams filled with plant growth and in low moist places in meadows. In searching for them lu grass wait till you see one jump, then catch it in your hands. They are not so easily got from the Bhores, as tbey are apt to take to the water at the first alarm. Crabs are usually found tinder stones along tbe shores of a stream or pond, and in some localities in low moist places in grass lands. Seize tbe crab back of tbe pinchers and it cannot nip you. Dobsons are ouly found under mossy atones in swift running waters. They are of a dark gray color, have many legs, and when fully grown are about three inches hna. The head is shield shaped and armed with good stout pin cers, so handle thedobsou as you would a crab. Tho best way to get a supply of dobsons is to have some one hold one edge of a fine meshed net on the but torn of the stream, while yon turn over the stones above tbe net with a boo. The dobsons, loosing their hold on tbe bottom, will be carried by the current into the net. Put frogs, crabs aud dob sons into a pail with plenty of grass and some water. If you are to keep them for some time, change the water occasion ally. Grubs are excellent bait for trout ear ly in the season. They are found in par tially decayed tree trunks, Btnmps and old timbers left in moist places. Cut into the wood with an ax, and if yon find it full of holes of the size of a lead pencil knock it to pieces and pick out the grubs.
