Chrisunscn you ever sit around outside your house on a Sunday after noon, or of an evening, maybe, and watch the paint, and see it go, when it ought to be holding on tight? LAND Some paints are so poor that you can almost see them as they dry out, and crumble, and powder, and blow away. Why do they do this? Why does this happen? Something the matter with the materials—too much lead, maybe, or poor oil, or not scientifically ground and mixed might have been good materials but not balanced right for wear.

"Say," he gasped, "wh" time is it?" "Well," said the young woman, ju dicially, "I should say it was some where around 11 o'clock. Why?" "Ma's going to take ine to a show at half-past 11," he explained, accommo dating his step to hers. "It's down at Thirty-ninth street. You goin' to it?" The young woman looked regretful. "Dear me!" she said. "I don't believe I am. I've another engagement for this morning. Isn't it loo bad!" "Ih-huh," agreed the small boy. "It's goin' to be great. Say, ain't you walkin' awful fast?" "Excuse me," said the young wom an, slowing down. "Of course, they expect me on time, but. I can explain that important business detained me." "Huh?" asked the small boy. "Where y' goin'? Another show?" "Not exactly," admitted the young woman. "Just a language class— where you study, you know." "Gee!" said the small boy. "On Sat'day, too! Guess you'll be glad to be late! "Me an' m' brother've been savin' up to go to the show," he went on. "I got 79 cents an' m' brother, he's got over a dollar, but he found a 50-cent piece. Once he found a stickpin, too, but that was because he was walkin' in the gutter so's he could splash in the puddles. M' brother, ho couldn't save much.

"Six," said the small boy, casually. "There was ten, but four they died.

AS TO THE "SPOILED" CHILD. H# May Rir.lly Be Receiving the Beat of Training. Often, writes Woods Hutchinson, in the Success Magazine, the spoiled child is the one really best trained for life. Real life, that is, not the sham aavestv upon it so carefully played in the nursery and the schoolroom and termed "education." The difference between a spoiled child and a well-he liaved one is chiefly a matter of frank aoss of expression. The spoiled child savs right out Just what he happens to think and feel, and yoit hear and are pained by his expressions of skepti cism, of resentment, even of rebellion. Nine times out of ten the "model" child feels exactly the same senti ments—but refrains from expressing hem. When the spoiled child has ex pressed himself—it may be even im pertinently or rebellionsly—the niur :ler is all out, the subject is fairly on the carpet, and you can argue the case with him on its merits, or if it be be yond his grasp, assert your author ity and ask him to trust your superior ?xperience, which he usually will, nine cases out of ten, if he is appealed to in this way. In any case, you know he worst that is in him and can gov irn yourself accordingly. Your model child may submit in silence, without .liscussion or remonstrance, but you may depend upon it that he will dis cuss the question on its merits with tHe nurse, or the cook, or the hired man, or the had boy in the next street and that, whatever feeling of resent ment or injustice he may smother in his own little interior, so far as ex pressing them toward you is con cerned, he will pass oil with interest his puppy, his kitten, or his younger brothers and sisters, or playmates. Travel in Persia. In great contrast to the extraor linarv progress made in transportation in Africa is the backwardness of Persia, one of the oldest countries of the world. Its transportation facili ties are much the same as they were in the days of Alexander the Great and Marco Polo. There are only six miles of railroad in the whole country and often these are not under operation. There are only three or four good dirt roads, and almost all transportation is done by pack trains. Camels, horse, mules, donkeys and men are used as beasts of burden. The traveler can usually ride the post horses, but these are rather poor animals and it is cus tomary to buy or hire horses and pack animals. This costs a native about -0 cents a day, but no foreigner can hope to travel so cheaply. It would hi* prodigal, however, for anyone to pay more than five dollars a day for two servants, four or five animals and their feed.—Travel Magazine. Advice to the Middle-Aged. An English physician declares that persons of middle age or more should not assume an upright position imme diately upon awakening from a night's sleep. The danger from jumping out of lied at once upon becoming con scious is a disturbance of the cir culatory apparatus. At such a time, he says, there is undoubtedly a se vere strain upon the heart and blood vessels. The blood pressure at such a time and under such circumstances is intense, and is calculated to further damage a weakened heart or arterial system. Lie quiscent for ten to twenty minutes upon awakening. By doing so, he says, persons? will not suffer from vertigo, a sense of fullness in the head or a staggering gait—all evi dences of a profoundly disturbed cir culation. Innocent by Deduction. "Speaking of the coolness of the average Englishman." said he. "You know these little compartments tliev travel in over there? Well, an English man was smoking his cigarette in one alone with a young woman, who all at once sprang up with a shriek and pushed the button that stops the train in case of accidents and that sort of thing and bring everybody to tile com partment that has done the stopping. "When they got there the young woman was tearing her hair and cry ing out that the Englishman had in sulted her. What did he do? Why. nothing. Just quietly went on smo king his cigarette, which was enough. The ash on it was about an inch long, which showed conclusively that lie had not moved out of one position for ten minutes at least, possibly 15.'' Submarine Ball in Vienna. A submarine ball is the latest at traction devised by the Princess Met ternich. Every year the Princess opens the Vienna season with a ball at her palace. This year she sought the assistance of well-known scenic artists, and the result was a scene rivaling in splendor and ingenuity the most gorgeous scene at a pantomine. Every guest in devising their cos tumes had to borrow something from the flora and fauna of the sea. The salons represented a gigantic aquari um, or more correctly, the bottom of the sea. There were enchanted grot tos, strange rocks, peculiar plants and beds of coral. The dancers appeared in costumes decorated with sea roses, corals of the most delicate shades and all sorts of shellfish, including lob sters. No Resentment. "You modi", women," said the pro fessor sternly, "have in some form all the habits of the savage female." "Oil, now, professor," responded a matronly individual, "surely you are mistaken. Why, if a jungle lady were so grossly insulted by a big, over bearing bully she would be certain to resent it, and sec how calm we are." GETTING A GORILLA VICIOUS STRUGGLE WITH ANIMAL IN AFRICAN JUNGLE. Brute's Enormous Strength Enables It to Break Bonds and Slay Mem ber of Party Trying to Capture It. Capt. Fritz Duquesne, tho Boer ivory hunter, was commissioned by a Ger man naturalist, society to c.aptu,-e one of each species of African quadru nutna. He was entirely successful in tho work, except that he could obtain no gorilla, he writes in Hampton's Magazine under the title "Hunting Ahead of Roosevelt, in East Africa." I'tnally a pigmy pointed out. a portion of the dark jungle in which a gorilla had been seen. "For four days," continues the cap tain "we camped in this hotbed of dis- ,: ease. Beaters went out in all direc tions searching for the gorilla. At last some deep, wide scratches were found on a cluster of vines. On close examination the unmistakable hair of Ihe gorilla was found on a broken twig. After some hours we found the tree where the gorilla lived. We could tell it by the greasy appearance of the bark, made so by the repeated rubbing of the gorilla's body. We could tell by the fresh marks, with sap still wet, that the animal had re cently ascended the tree. The scratches were short and deep, show ing that it had lifted itself up and not slid down, which would have made a long, shallow scra'ch. "We spread a strong net around the tree in a circle sloping upward on the outer side. Around the top of the net there were drawn ropes from four directions held by half a dozen na tives hidden in the bush. These were to bring the top of the net together, and thus bag our game. "After waiting some hours the leaves above rustled and then opened as a six-foot male gorilla descended unsuspectingly and entered the trap. I signaled, the four ropes were pulled at once, and we had our animal—for a moment. He roared in fury, twist ing, jumping and biting the rope into pieces. The natives were pulled about like dolls as he tried to reach lirst one and then another. The professor jumped about in excitement, trying to toeus a camera on the infuriated ani mal. "At Inst the mighty arms of the go rilla broke a hole through the net. and lie tore the rest from him as though it were a rotten rag. Most of the na tives fled in dismay. The professor dropped his camera and tried to es cape in a moment the gorilla grasped hini in its terrible hands. "I sie/.ed my rifle and fired in the air to frighten the animal. In my po sition I could not sheot at him without hitting my friend. For a moment the gorilla stood still holding the now un conscious man as though he were a baby, the brute's lips drawn back from his glistening teeth. I thrust another cartridge in my ride. As 1 did so there was a buzz in the air and an ar row shot by a native pierced the go rilla's side. A roar burst from his red throat and he dropped his victim. I-ike a flash, before I could shoot, a native sprang from the leaves, and, half throwing, half thrusting, drove an as segai into the gorilla's heart. With a I groan the brute fell dead. "Examining the nrofessor, 1 found that his right arm was broken and that some of his ribs were crushed into his lungs. We gave up the ef fort to get a live gorilla, and. placing the injured man in a hammock, car ried him back toward the east coast. He died on tlie road. Out on the veldt beside a native vill-ige a lonely little slab marked 'Carl Bloch' sticks up above the grass. 1-unting is not all exciting adventure and laughing vic tory. It has tears, 'ike other things." Health and Profits. Prof. Irving Fisher of Yale has been suggesting to the life insurance com panies that they establish a depart ment of health as a means of pro longing the life of their policy holders and thus of increasing their own profits. But there is danger in such a propo sition. Besides being an unwarranted Interference with personal liberty, they might eventually bring about such a condition of health as to remove all that fear of death which constitutes the chief urge of life insurance. It would be much better if the life insurance companies could invent a portable and well-disciplined disease which the agents could carry around with them but not t'se until the pros pective victim absolutely refused to yield to the ordinavy blandishments. The disease should be so constructed that it could readily be withdrawn as oon a^the victim capitulated. Another Job for the Regulators. "I see where a scientific feller says there's a dark planet goin' to hit the sun an' end the wortd," says the man on the cracker barret. "Huh!" observes the man with his heels on the stove. "I reckon we needn't bother much about that. 1 spoke to our congressman about it this mornin', an' he'll interduee a bill niak in' such acts a vi'lation of inter plainly-' tary commerce."
