He is a well known man about town, and as suoh has so many en gagements that he has difficulty in securing the amount of sleep de manded by nature. A night or two ago he was due at a swell card party out in the neighborhood of Ritten house square. Nine o'clock was ttio hour, and at 7:30 he found himself unable to keep his eyes open. He repaired to his apartments, but dared not lie down for fear he would oversleep himself and miss his en gagement. In the emergency an idea struck him. Going over to the messenger call with which his sitting room is equipped he rang for a boy. In a few minutes one put in an appear ance. "Did you ring, sir?" inquired the lad. "I did," answered the man about town. "See that chair over there?" The boy nodded in the affirmative. "Well," continued the man about town, "I want you to sit down in it and never move for just 30 minutes. Then I want you to make me get up. Understand?" Once more the messenger nodded, and in less time than it takes to tell it the man about town was sound asleep on a couch. Promptly at the expiration of the half hour the boy awoke him, and the engagement was kept on time. This novel use of the messenger service ha6 not been patented by its originator, and he says that others situated as he was are welcome to the idea.—Philadel phia Inquirer. A Disturbing Diagnosis!

The adminis tration believes that colored troops will be of great advantage in Cuba and Por to Rico. The commerce destroyer Columbia which lias been at anchor at Tompkins ville, coaling and provisioning after a tour of duty with the North Atlantic patrol, weighed anchor and proceeded to sea Sunday night. Over 40 cases of ammunition were found on the Spanish ship Argonauta, captured during the first days of the war. It was on board this steamer that Lieu tenant Colonel Cortijo, brother-in-law of Weyler, was captured, with other Spanish soldiers now prisoners at Fort McPherson. One man is dead and two fatally in jured as the result of a wreck Saturday morning on the Chattanooga, Rome & Southern road, between Chattanooga and the volunteer camp at Chicka mauga. The dead and injured all be long to the First regiment, Missouri volunteer infantry. A beginning has been made toward the organization of the independent volunteer forces under authority con ferred upon the president by special resolution. The national guard will have no part in these organizations, which will be made up of engineers, immunes and electricians. A dispatch from Havana says two American ships have bombarded Guan tanamo, and adds that the Spanish gun boat Sandora and a regiment of marines repulsed attempts made to land there. As usual, according to the Spanish ver sion of such affairs, the Spaniards did not suffer any loss and the Americans retired. Spanish ministers declare nothing is officially known of the result of the ne gotiations which have been going on with the Cuban insurgents in order to induce them to make common cause with the Spaniards against the Amer icans, though some of the ministers claim to believe the negotiations will succeed. Secretary Alger received a brief tele gram from General Brooke confirming the report of the accident at Chicka mauga to a train carrying Missouri vol unteers. He stated that one man was killed and four injured, and that the remains of the one killed have been sent to his friends in Missouri. He also says the injured men are being cared for at the hospital. The naval strategy board, rechris te.ned of lata the war board, is to lose erne of its most active and valuable members in the person of Captain Bar ker. He left Washington Monday for Hampton Roads to take command of the fine protected cruiser Newark, which has just been extensively re paired at the Norfolk navy yard. It is expected that the Newark will join Sampson's squadron in the West Indies as soon as she can get there. Washington officials dismiss as pure invention the story from Montreal that Former Minister Polo has suc ceeded in seonring for Spain a coaling station on one of the French islands of St. Pierre and Miquelon, off the New Fonndland coast. At the French em bassy the report is treated with indig nant contempt, as the French decree of neutrality is binding on the French governor of these islands, and effect ually prevents the granting of such ex ceptional privileges as coaling stations. Colonel Grigsby's cowboy regiment S'alls, Hathaway method. The secret ot the great treatment Is yours for the mere asking. Why hesitate? assed through Chicago from Sioux S. D., Saturday. Large crowds greeted the train and the locomotive slowed up to allow the crowd to ex change compliments with the soldiers, who, leaning from the windows,cheered and waved flags and in other ways demonstrated their appreciation of the reception.

Late advices tell or a very critical state of affairs in the Samoan islands, where another native war is believed to be inevitable.

When I behold how some pursue Fame, that is care's embodiment, Or fortune, whose false face looks true, A humble home with sweet content Is all I n.sk for me and you. A huniblo home, where pigeon' coo, Whoso path leads under braezy lines Of frosty berried cedars to A gate, one mass of trumpet vines, Is all I tisk for me and you. A garden which, all suminci' through, Tho roses old make redolent, And morning glories, gay of hue, And tansy, with its homely scent, Is all I ask for me and you. An orchard that the pippins strew, From whoso bruised gold the juiooi spring 4 A vineyard where the grapes hang blue. Wine big and ripe for vintaging, Is all I ask for me and you. A lane that leads to some far view Of forest and of fallow land, Bloomed o'er with rose and irieadow rue, Each with a bee in its hot hand, Is all I ask for me and you. At morn a pathway doep with dew And birds to vary time and tune, At eve a sunset avenue And whlppoorwills that haunt the moon. Is all I ask for me and you. Dear heart, with wants so small and few, And faith, that's better far than gold, A lowly friend, a child or two To care for us when we are old, Is all I ask for mo and you. —Madison Cawein in Harper's Magazine. A Clever Imitation. A certain Cleveland attorney has two bright little children. They are quick at imitation and have a talent for making up games in which they cleverly burlesque their elders. A few days ago their mamma found they were playing "doctor." The youngest child was the patient, with head wrapped in a towel, and the older the physician, with a silk hat and a cane. The mother, unseen by the little ones, listened at the door way. "I feels awful bad," said the pa tient. "We'll fix all that," said the doc tor briskly. "Lemme see your tongue." Out came the tiny red indicator. "Hum! Hum! Coated," said the doctor, looking very grave indeed. Then, without a word of warning, the skilled physician hauled off and gave the patient a smart slap in the region of the ribs. "Ouch!" cried the sufferer. "Feel any pain there?" inquired the doctor. "Yes," said the patient. "I thought so," said the healer. "How's the other side?" "It's all right," said the patient, edging away. Thereupon the doctor produced a small bottle filled with what looked like either bread or mud pills and placed it on the table. "Take one of these pellets," the physician said, "dissolved in water, every 1? minutes—alter-mit-ly." "How long mus' I take 'em?" groaned the patient. "Till you die," said the doctor. "Good morning!" Cleveland Plain Dealer. A Busy New York Corner. At that busy corner,, Grand street and the Bowery, there may be seen cars propelled by five different methods of propulsion—by steam, by cable, by underground trolley, by storage battery and by horses. Overhead, running up and down the Bowery, are the cars of the ele vated railroad, drawn by steam lo comotives. Running up and down the Bowery on the surface are the cars of the Third Aveniie railroad, drawn by cable. The Madison ave nue cars, which turn into the Bow ery at this point, coming along Grand street from the west, are run by the underground trolley system. The cars on the Second Avenue rail road, which come up the Bowery and turn into Grand street going west, returning around the same corner going down, are still drawn by horses, as are also nearly all the cars of the Grand street erosstown line, which crosses the Bowery go ing east and west. But there are four cars now running on the cross town line that are run by power from a storage battery.—New York Sun. An Irish Whisper. "An, sure, Dinnis, it's crazy Oi've been all day to hear ye till me that ye loved me." "Arrah, mavourneen, come close to me till I fhisper it in yer ear."

Hopeless. "Why do you allow your wife to rule you as if you were a baby?" indignantly asked Mr. Meeker's brother. "You ought to have a voice once in awhile in the manage ment of the household.

"Say," exclaimed little Willie, suddenly breaking a long silence and turning to his mother, "is there such a thing as a photographic heart?"
