A VOCAL DUEL.!

Herrmann Klein, in a book 011 music
nd musicians tells this story: "Once
remember our party of four was Jolnd
by Tamagno when the celebrated
talian tenor was playing 'Otello' at
he Lyceum. We all had supi>er toether
after the performance and were
n the jolliest of moods. Taxnagno had a
light cold 011 the chest, but protested \
hat it made no difference whatever in j
he singing Quality of his head tones, j
Tpon this Lassalle offered to wager H
hat he could sing higher with bis j
alsetto than Tamagno with his 'voce j
i netto.' The challenge was accepted, j
nd forthwith the two begviri vociil
net the like of which I ma certain I
hall never hear again. Out came Taiagno's
A's and 15 tints, as quickly reponded
to with the falsetto equiva?nts
from I.assalle's sturdy throat,
'hen the Italian went 'one better.' and
he Frenchman. "in order,, as he said,
o help himself up the scale, mounted
is chair and emitted the B natural,
rhereupou Tamagno also stood upon
lis chair and brought out not only a
igh C. but a ringing D tint, hassalle
ras now for mounting the table, but.
his being "ruled out* as au unfair adantage
over a less athletic opponent,
e proceeded to get the necessary- notes
rem the eminence of his chair amid
erriilc applause from the rest of the
ompaiiy. Tamngno now made a bold j
lash for a D natural, but did not quite
iieceed. and as l assalie fared no beter
we pronounced the result a 'dead
teat.' "

Dillicult IIorseback Feat.
There are no better horsemen in the
rorld than the cavalry officers of the
talian army, yet even among them
here are very few who coukl perform
he feat recently achieved by one of
hem.
To run an ordinary foot race is easy
nough, but to run at full speed for
everal hundred yards holding in one
land a spoon on which rests an egg
nd to reach the goal without dropping
he egg is a leaf which must be praciced
carefully a long time before it
an be performed successfully, and as
. result there are not many who can
ie sure of accomplishing it whenever
bey try. Great, therefore, was the
urprise when an Italian officer mount(1
on horseback performed this ditliult
feat. Moreover, be selected a
ourse in which there -were two or
bree high fences, and these he cleared
t full gallop without losing the egg.

COtJD STORAGE- RATS. ^ '
/Perfectly- at Uooio In a\emperatvre
Bolow t$,o Zero Mark. '
When cold storage was tlrst introduced
into this country the chiily storage
rooms were absolutely free from |
rats and xuico. Tl?e temperature was
kept considerate* below the freezing
soint. and in the cold surroundings rats
and inice were unable to live.
In time, however, the rich stores {
packed away there proved too tempt- j
ing for thieving rodents, and they be- }
gan to wake inroads into the cold stor
age rooms, at first paying a hurried
call and -as soon as they had taken a j
few nibbles rushing with a shiver out
*nto warmer places.
Gradually, however, these visits were j
lengthened and became more frequent, j
not without considerable mortality |
among tlie rats, but in the end tlierc j
grew into being what is known as the i
"cold storage rat." This animal has j
neither fail nor ears, both having been <
frozen for his ancestors, resulting in i
their total loss to the families of the j
first intrepid pirates of cold storage. j
These earl ess and tailless cold storage ;
fnts are perfectly at home in a temper- j
at tire below the zero mark. This. I
think, is one of the most striking ox- j
ainplcs of how the animal kingdom in i
the wise .economy of nature can adapt ,
itself in the most severe surroundings.

SAVINGS BANKS.
Tlx'?- Were l-'irxt SujiKesteil In 11 ?;>7
!?> Du3:Ivl Defoe.
Primitive savings banks were found- j
ed ::t lia in burg in 1778 and at Berne j
in 2 787. the idea having been suggested
by Daniel Defoe in 1(7.>7. Francis Masseres
proposed in 1771 to confer upon
tli.-1 ratepayers of any English parish j
powers to receive and invest savings !
niul to grant deferred annuities, but a ;
hi!! to this effect failed to pass through :
parliament. The first practical at- j
tempts were on a small and tentative ;
scale. A children's batik was started j
by .Mrs. i'rlscilla Wakefield at Tottenham
in 170S.
Ti e Hov. J. Smitli of -Andover, with j
two friends, agreed in 1700 to receive;
small sums from his parishioners dur- j
in a the summer, to be returned with a
one-third bounty at Christmas, a lib- :
era I offer which was eagerly embraced.
The title of "Father of Savings j
Danks" has been given, however, to the
I Lev. II. Duncan of Ituthwell, Duin-.
friesshire, who established, a savings
bank in ISIO-on so successful a basis
that in four years it possessed an necu- j
imilated fund of ?1,160.
Acts to encourage savings banks in ;
England and Ireland were passed in I
1817 and were extended to Scotland in j
1835.?Pearson's.

the Greatest Layers.
There is infinite variety in the nuin- !
ber of eggs iaid by different animals, .
the general rule being tliat those highest
in the scale of life are least prolific. j
Among vertebrates fisli are the most |
prolific. Trout and salmon average J
1,000 eggs to every pound of weight.
Bucklaud reckoned the roe of a half
pound herring at 10,840, of an eight
pound turbot at 385,000 and of a thirty
pound cod at 5,000,000, while the sturgeon
has more than a third of its
weight ready for the toothsome caviare.
5Iollusks vary in their powers of reproduction
from thirty to fifty at a
time in snails, to the thousands of the
whelk, while the spat of some reaches
2,000,000. It is among insects that stupendous
numbers appear, reaching a
climax In the termites, or white ants.
The queens of these are egg laying
machines of the most astonishing fecundity.
They become huge cylindrical
packages, 2,000 times their usual size,
chained to one spot. The laying at
the rate of sixty eggs a minute, or 80,OOO
a day, reaches probably iu two
to!ill of 50.000.000.'

The legend respecting the origin ol
the Glastonbury thorn is well known how
Joseph of Arimathca, in visiting \
Britain 0:1 a preaching mission, ar- |
rived weary at Glastonbury, and while
lie rested his hawthorn walking stick
was thrust into the ground; liow it
at once began to grow and ever a liter,
so the legend says, dowered on Christmas
day. The thorn is simply ail early
dowering variety of our common hawthorn.
That it does flower remarkably
early is quite true, for a tree in the ,
Itoyal Botanic gardens, JCew, opens its
dowers between November and March.

The Mexican lapdog is so very minute
in size as to appear almost in- j
credible to those who have not actually
seen the animal itself. A well known
writer on natural history, speaking of
this tiny member of the canine species,
says that "it is precisely like those
white woolen toy dogs which sit upon
a pair of bellows and when pressed
give forth a nondescript sound Intended
to do duty for a legitimate bark."

Senator Fairbanks In College. a
Deslie's Magazine.]
Young Fairbanks, by farm work a
and wagon making, had saved $41 by
the time he reached . the age of 15
years. With it and one suit of clothes ?
he traveled to Delaware, 0.. where ^
he entered Ohio Wesleyan University.
He turned to account his rudimentary
knowledge of carpentry by
working on Saturdays for a local contractor
for $1.25 a day.
A few weeks after young Fairbanks
arrived at college he fell and split
his only trousers beyond immediate
repair. It was necessary for him to
borrow a pair from a fellow student,
and the loan had to be continued be- ^
cause he was denied credit for
a new pair at the stores in town.
He had to send home for his mother
to make him another pair. *}
Working in college during the college
year and in the harvest fields in
vacation, he was graduated from the
college and its law course at 20. At ^
22 he was admitted to the Supreme
Court of Ohio, and later he went to
Indianapolis.
