The dispu tants attribute unworthy motives to the man who roots himself in the end seat and to those that would uproot him; they ahow temper in their arguments; they even scream.

Tyler of Liebler & Co., of New York is at present stopping in Pari* on business and pleasure. The bus iness part, he stated 80 a correspondent yesterday, consists principally in arrang ing for Mme. Rejane’s American tear. Negotiations were begun last January and the contract is now signed. Mme. Rejane will arrive in America in the be ginning of November, and her first ap pearance at the Lyric Theatre in New York will probably be on November 8.

Rejane is engaged for twelve weeks in the United States, four of which will be passed in New York. The rest of the time will be taken up in a tour to Chicago, Boston. Philadelphia and New Orleans. It is seven years since she was last in the United State*. “I have also arranged for the appewr anee of Miss Eleanor Robson,” said Mr. Tyler, “at the Duke of York’s Theatre in London next September in Mr. Israel Zangwill’s comedy “Merely Mary Ann.” As regards the pleasure part of my vis it,” continued Mr. Tyler, “one of my pur poses in coming to Pans was to buy an automobile. I was at once taken posses ion of by ail the dealers in the city as soon as my intention was kpown, and from the first day I arrived in Paris till now I hadn't a moment to myseif. "I was simply tossed from one vehicle to another, spun around on big automo biles like the doomed shades of Dante. I made only thirty-two trips backward and forward to Versailles.

I say the best, because I know it’s true.” It was a business man, hard-headed and keen, who spoke, says a writer in the Newark “Sunday News.” He had just arrived from California, and Miss Kemp son had taken advantage of his coming to take the trip East with the intention of locating some friends of her earlier years. She is now a well preserved wo man of sixty years, of a cheerful dispo sition and plainly a person not easily frightened. Though somewhat surprised when the writer called and made known his errand, she, on receiving the card of her friend, readily consented to tell her story, insist ing, however, that her true name be not given. “I doubt if there is any one living to day besides the gentleman who sent you to me who knows the story of njy life since the day I fled from Brooklyn,” said she. “I never expected to give it to the public. My troubles began more than forty years ago. I had beeu employed for several years in the home of a weal thy resident of the city as a seamstress when I was startled one evening on my way to my room on the top floor of the house by hearing the rustling of silken skirts as if a woman richly dressed pass ed me as I ascended the stairs. “It was quite dark, all the lights hav ing been extinguished. I had never be lieved in ghosts or spooks and had no fear of them. I knew no one had really passed me on the stairs, and I retired somewhat puzzled. I had about forgot ten the experience when two week* later I again heard the sound of rustling skirts distinctly. I called out asking who had passed me, but received no answer. Most young women, I suppose, would have fled in terror, but the sounds only excited my curiosity, and, getting a lamp from my room, I searched the lower part of the house, thinking it possible that some of the other servants were trying to fright en me. “I discovered nothing, and I went to m.v room, beginning to wonder if there really was a ghost in the house. I was, however, soon convinced of the superna tural origin of the sounds, for they be came gradually more frequent until they were of almost nightly occurrence. “I never was troubled with nervous ness and grew so accustomed to the sounds that I paid no attention to them. In fact, I' was surprised when I did not hear the rustling. I was certain none of the other servants had heard the noises, because none of them would venture alone out of their rooms at night in the dark. If they had heard anything the whole household would have been quick ly aroused. I decided not to speak of my experiences, hoping that they would come to an end as suddenly as they were begun. “But1 worse was in store for me. I was sound asleep one evening when I was awakened sharply by the door of my room being suddenly thrown violently open. Thinking it might have been done by a gust of wind I got up, shut and locked it. I had just settled comfortably in bed when it was again thrown wide open. This time I got up, lighted my lamp, searched thejhallway, peeping into the other rooms, blit every one else was apparently sound asleep. “I felt considerably upset and mysti fied, but in no sense did I fegl what is called a ‘creepy’ feeling. Once again again it was thrown open after I had re turned to my bed. This time I vras thor oughly aroused and angry. I determined to stop the door opening, and going soft ly np to the garret, which was large and stored with trunks and odds and ends of nil kinds, I got a-piece; of heavy twine. With this I ffied the door from the knob to a staple that had been driven into the • bi • T side of the,, door frame for some purpose, and returned to jj^jr rjj&t.j ^ was -!-—a__J] Cheap Bates for Vacation Trip*.

I sat up in bed thoroughly amazed and trying to solre the mystery for half an hour, but gave it up and tearing the door open rolled my self in the plankets and went to sleep. That night I was disturbed no more, nor did iny ghostly visitors bother with the door again. “On the following night I was enter tained in a different way. It wanted twenty minutes of 12 o’clock when I re tired, ad I had just settled myself when I jumpnd to the floor thoroughly alarmed' by the racket ever my head. The noise sounded as if a couple of boys were rac ing around the garret, drawing after them those little four-wheeled wagons children havei Every moment I expected the other inmates of the house to come rusiiing into my room to learn the cause of the racket. This was kept up for fully five minutes, but it seemed that no one in the house but myself was dis turbed. Far from being frightened. I was disgusted and angry, and seizing my lamp, I tiptoed softly up to the garret and peered around in every corner, but e.tild se nothing unusual. Nothing had been disturbed. In a little while the noise was repeated, and I noted that the dis turbances lasted about one hour each night. In the morning 1 studied my face long in the glass, for it dawned upon me tiiat possibly 1 might be going crazy, but I could see nothing except n dullness in my eyes resulting from loss of sleep that was much needed, for I worked hard in those days. “I recalled ail my actions during the ! past few days, but could remember noth ing tending to show anything mentally wrong with me. I concluded that if any thing had gone wrong it was not my brain., and I resolved to fathom the nays tery, if possible. “The following night the garret was again the scene of the ghostly pranks. It seemed ns if they waited for me to get ready to go to sleep before commenc ing. On this occasion it sounded as if several men had eacli taken a bushel basket of potatoes or apples and hurled them, one basketfuil after the other, roll ing over the garret floor. Suddenly X took a humorous view of the matter and in a moment I was laughing heartily over the idea of such a fuqny proceeding. But I soon recovered myself at the next bombardment and retired to wnlt patient ly for the end of the performance, which came in about an hour and I promptly fell asleep. "The last manifestation seemed to be the result of a ftlMidish determination to ’dri^e mggoot of my room. I had gone ' fU )ear«surl» spgsidinf J^ioh^er' time than ^iiaI}HPmy'arf««tona fa*he iigpe ^at I ' migh^'lse' allowed to sleep in-peace. At about the usual time I was awakened by a tugging at my pillow as if some one were trying to pull it from under my head. I got up in a temper, and, lamp in hand, searched the room and halls with the usual result. Again I got into my bed defiant and determined to go to sleep. The moment the light was extinguished the tugging was resumed. I got up. lighted the lamp and retired again, but it made no difference, “Again I arose and sxttnguished the light. As I put my head on the pillow there was an extra hard tug at it, and, thoroughly exasperated, I cried out: ‘For ' heaven’s sake leave my pillow’ alone and j go to my feet.’ I don’t know why I said , this. It was the first thing that came to me, I suppose, but what astonished me was that my reuest was instantly obey ed, and the tugging at the foot of the bed was kept up with such wicked persist ence that I had to give up and sit in a chair for an hour before I was permitted again to sleep. “Now I come to my final experience in that house, and I often have wondered that I did not go mad or my hair turn , white from fright. The next day was the eve of Christmas. There was to be a gathering of friends of the family in the evening. It was about 2 o’clock in the afternoon when one of the gentlemen asked me to go to his room and get him a paper he had left there. When I en tered the room I saw the paper on his bureau, with his razor lying opened upon it. He had just finished shaving when he was called downstairs by a visitor. I picked up the razor to lay it one side, and at that instant I heard hissed in my ear, it seemed to me in tones of devilish vindictiveness: ‘Cnt your throat—quick!’ “Instinctively I hurled the razor from me and out of an open window, and drop ped on my knees shaking with terror. But in a moment I recovered and fled from the room. In the hall I stopped to re gain my composure. Then I swiftly en tered the room again, seized1 the paper and carried it downstairs. That was the last service I rendered theire. I immedi ately packed my trunk and'left tae house, to the amazement of every member of the family, who thought much of me. But I would give no explanation otlier than that I hud to leave the city, which I did immediately, going to California. “But never after that terrible day could I touch a knife without hearing those same words hissed' in my ear. For ' tunately I had some money saved, and this I invested profitably in California, so that I have always been able to have my food prepared so that I shall not need to use a kuife. But for that one thing 1 have everything I want, and am per fectly happy. “I know of no reason for the manifes tations in the house, and as far as I know no other person knew of any. The family was an excellent one, and I nev er heard of any misdeeds by any mem ber of it such as are popularly supposed to lead to spectral antics: nor do 1 know of any reason in my own life or the lives of those who have gone before that could even remotely explain what I have been the victim of.

A study of Jan Steen’s pictures of Dutch heme life some 200 years ago proves to conviction that in his day the noses of his country folk were quite as fantastic as they are n<tw. Without their pendulous, heavy, mirth Inspiring organs of smell, the artist’s j tipsy fiddlers and peasants, quack doc tors and housewives would not make | one smile half as much as they do. It Is well thaf'the average Dutchman is a good natnred fellow. No matter whether his amiability be due to his phlegmatic temperament or to the rea soned discipline in his soul, the result Is the same to the outer world. If he were naturally disposed to be a prey to his passions, there would be something horribly discordant in the brond comedy of his face.—Chambers’ Journal , From the Chinese. ' Here is a famous passage from the writings of a Chinese philosopher. More than twenty centuries ago it gained the author the sobriquet of “Butterfly Chung.” The philosopher tells of a dream: “Once upon a time I, Chung Tea, dreamed I was a butterfly, fluttering hither and thither, to all in tents and purposes a butterfly. I was conscious only of following my fancy as a butterfly and was unconscious of my Individuality as a man. Suddenly I awakened and there I lay, myself again. Now, I do not know whether I was then a man dreaming I was a butterfly or whether I am now a but terfly dreaming I am a man.” The Speed of Sense. Hirsch proved that a touch on the face was recognised by the brain and responded to by a manual signal In the one-seventh part of a second. The scientist also found that the speed of sense differed for different organs, the sense of hearing being responded to in the oae-sixth of a second, while that of sight required only one-fifth of a second to be recognized and signaled. In all three cases the distance travers ed was about the same, se the natural inference is that the image travels more slowly than sound or touch. - .. . .. - I The Oak.

At 90 degrees the oak stops short. To slant upward another degree would mark infirmity of pur pose; to bend downward, weakness of organisation. Other trees shirk the work of resisting gravity.
