When all Westchester county was thrilling with the prospect of a rail road comlpetirion an agent of the new company that was to build went through Pelham Manor bul ng proper ty for the right of way. le rang the doorbell of one resident, who was liv ing in a rented house at $50 a month. "Will you take $S.000 for this house?" demanded the agent "'Oh. no, I couldn't." stammered the tenant. "Will you take $8.000?" "1 couldn't do it." "Well, think it over." Mr. Tenant foxily runs around to the owner of the property and gets an agreement to sell him the property for $6~000 if he can raise the money. The railroad's agent returns. "Will you take $9,0007' "No." "ren r "Yes." "Done!" Oh. yes, there is such a think as luck when a man has the wits to msee it coming his way.-New York Press. Killing an Unfaithful Lever. When a Japanese girl has been slighted by her lover she revenges her self according to the following quaint custom: In the dawn of the early morning she rises and puts on a white robe and white clogs. Round her neck she hangs a small mirror, which falls to her breast, and on her bead she puts a metal crown with three points, each point bearing a lighted candle. In her left hand she carries a small fgure of straw or rags-supposed to represent her unfaithful lover-and this she nails to one of the sacred trees surrounding the family shrine. She then prays for the death of the man. vowing that if this comes to pass she will pull out the nails which are hurting the sacred tree and make of ferings to comfort her family god. Ev. ery night she comes to the shrine. strikes in two more nails and makes the same prayer, her Idea being that the god. to save his tree from further injury, will kill her lover. \ A Strange Speeils of Do.r, Just above the buffet in the dining room of a Richmond boase there hangs a bhuge, finely mounted antlered head.

Joss Sticks. The composition of the candles called Joss sticks, which are used in all the religious ceremonies of Buddhism. for a long time remained a mystery, the preparation of the sticks being intrust ed to certain persons chosen from a limited class. Not long ago, however, a French chemist learned the manner of making joss sticks in Indo-China. A stem of bamboo is rolled in a prep aration containing fourteen different odoriferous drugs. two of which are signitlfant as showing a knowledge of chenmical and physical properties. These are aconite,. which serves to protect the sticks against the attacks of rats and mice. and camphor, which causes them to burn steadily without being periotlically extinguished.-New York Press.

Propeller Building. Ever since 'rlndmills were first set up men have been diligently studying the merits of different propellers. By the time steamships came to be driven through the water by rotary blades or screws their modeling had become a science.
