Bailors, paint ers, roofera and steeple climbers have the advantage of their pirelinjiuary training. The first thing that a neo phyte is called npen to learn ia howlo handle the scaling ladder. This bit of apparatus is a long, well eeasoned tongue of timber witn short exosspieces passing through it It ter minates at the top with a long hcok, ' which has three or fonr ratchellike projections on its nndersnrface and weighs from 20 to 45 pcands. There is a special knack in handling it dexter oasly; and many a time a man who is Elighfc and small of stature can manage ladder which e Goliath would fiiid difficulty in handling. "There is no piece of apparatus in the'fire department,' says one who has made a study of its methods "which, skillfully handled, can be made to serve mora purposes than this scaling ladder. The longest extension ladder in the de partment measures 90 feet, but the man with the scaling ladder can go up 14 or 15 stories without becoming exhaust ed. At fixes before an extension ladder can be put in position one fireman can push a scaling ladder into a. second story window scramble up and go from story to story to the very roof. He is . followed by a second fireman, who takes his ladder with him story by story, and this fireman by a third, until by the time the first man has reached the top tnere is n completed ciiam Denma Uim, down which the rescued may bo carried and the fireman himself escape." New York Tribune. SMITHERS RETORT Bis Sarcastic Reply to tlie Private Bonrdlasr House Landlady. Mr. Smitbers is a somewhat fastidious youne, man who is looking for a new Hoarding pjace. oanEtsa ecu aomo the regulation hoarding house, and al- ways tries to live with a private fam - lly. He is now convinced thatan "ad." 1 .a: t nrzii . - - - :3 wnicn soJicits boaraers for a "nice pri- Vate family" is often a snare for a stuiry double fiat, inhabited by one small fam ily and 24 boarders. Smithers called onaday last week at a place with a flowing description just on the flank of Michigan avenue's aris tocracy. "Hum! Suspiciously like a boarding bouse." thought Smithers as he took m the dimensions. A collariess negro serv- aiit who opened the door confirmed his suspicions, but he had gone too far then to back out. A sharp ncsed, snippy landlady came in with a top lofty air. "Er ah, I believe I am mistaken,' he began. "I supposed I should find a private family. By the advertisement hu-m" The laughter and the familiar board ing nonse num oi 14 cieras and ten lady stenographers came up from the dining room in the basement. The mis tress of the conglomerate "private fam ily" drew herself up proudly. "Yon are entirely mistaken, sir," she assert ed in a grasping, 7 a week voice. "This is not a boarding house, although we have a few friends living with us." Smithers sniffed the air. There was a distinct odor of prunes and corned beef. "Well. I must say," he remarked as he turned up his coat collar and fied down the steps, "that it smells like a boarding house, madam." Chicago Inter Gcenn. ' Tempted by FIaIicr. The Eoran gives a story of some very naughty fishes in David's time. Know ing that tho Israelites were forbidden to catch fish on the Sabbath, the wicked creatures came OGt of the Hed sea in nnuaual numbers and kept in sight of the people ail throughout the day in order to tempt them. On the approach of night they returned into the sea again. In a fatal moment some of tho Israel ites yielded to the piscine blandish ments, canght eeveral of them end had them for dinner, whereupon David cursed the Sabbath breakers, and God, to show his displeasure, changed them into apes and pig3. For three days they remained in this unpleasant condition, when a violent storm arose and swept them into the tea. Pittsburg Dispatch. llaciaa E.ve faster Than tlie Pea. "You read 1,000 miles," is the calcu lation a clever individual fond of de tails. The eyes of the average busy man, in reading alone, travel 1,000" milefi, which is equivalent to an "ocu lar trip" a third of the distance across our continent. Even the busiest man probably travels with his eyes 19 miles of type yearJyt and there are doubtless many readers who travel six times the distance. If you read a yellow backed novel, your eyes have traversed from a aile to a mile and a half of type. The busiest pen cannot keep up with this pace. With ordinary use, your pen has not traveled as far as -from Kew York to Albany. Philadelphia Inquirer. I Stirrups were unknown to the an- ' cients.

A Mouse has long been known to be the bittrest enemy of womankind. Just why the average run of femininity should fear such a helpless, harmless Httle creature cannot be explained. During the civil war a famous female spy was betTyea, through the instru mentality of a mouse. The woman was masquerading as a boy and succeeded admirably in deceiving the enemy nn til one evening while dining vdth a party of men at a farmhouse a black mouse jumped from a cupboard to the table, almost in the face of the sup posed boy. With a shrill feminine shriek the spy threw up her arms and rushed across the room, and, springing on a couch, went into hysterics from sheer fright. The men. of course, sus pected her and, rather than be searched, she confessed, but by the aid of the loy al old farmer and his wife she made her escape in the night. A well known woman physician o? Chicago aav3 she can do anv kind of surgical wor without a tremor, but , the sight of a mouse turns her strange- ny ji Bna thoroughly "unwomans" her. Another woman has such a terror of mice that she recently went insane through fright at one of the wee crea tures. The woman was sweeping her cellar when a mouse darted out frcra an old barrel and ran abont her feet. She tried to step on it and beat at it with her broom, calling piteously to her little boy to help her. But the boy, thinkincr ahe whs in fnn. frightened i o lfce terrified mouse toward the woman hsnsTor it tried to get away.

Cleveland Plain Dealer. NO CHINESE IN LEADVILLE. Ttto Plcrtnlled CoIesialB Wlio Were Tabooed by tie Town. the Cbinese is represented in Leadvilla jOnly two Ceis6tialc ever entered the I camp, and the story of their short stay is unique and interesting. There wasn't much cf a demonstration on their ar rival, for it was late at night when they climbed down from the roof of one of the coaches into the baey streets and ' hastily surveyed the strange surround- i tegs. Word W33 whispered about in the . dives with which the street was lined, ' and soon the pigtails were encompassed with a quiei aDd gentlemanly mob of perhaps a hundred miners and hoboes. Scarcely a word was spoken, bnt as soon as the luggage of the passengers . and the mails were taken from, the boot of the Concord the China boys were as sisted to the seats they had just vacat ed, tha driver was given a tip and the distinguished arrivals were whirled oat of town in much quicker time than they had entered it. for it was a dowa hill pull to Malta, the nearest settle ment dovn the gulch. There they were j left to shift for themselves as best they 1 might ! What means of communication with each other these strange little people have I know not, but the news of the reception that was tendered to the first representatives of their race to visit Leadville traveled rapidly, and tha fact soon came to be understood by them, In all localities where they congregated in Colorado, that they were not want ed. I later queried a Chinaman in an adjoining town as to whether he had ever been in the great mining camp, and his reply was characteristically la conic: "I no go Lead-v-i-Mee.
