The attendant passed on to a neigh
boring cage and poked his finger spor
tively Into the side of a large gray cat
that "meowed" plaintively In response
to his cheery "Hello, there, Caesar!"
The cat had such a healthy, whole
some appearance that the visitor in
quired what meat he was fed upon.
"Humph!" said the attendant. "You've
missed it there. He doesn't feed upon
meat. He's a vegetarian. He likes
onions better than anything else, un
less it's melons. A good many cats
like melons, and most of them are also
partial to raw asparagus. The fact Is
you might run through a list of all the
dishes that find a place on any up to
date menu and you will find that some
of our patients have acquired a taste
for them. This epicurean appfetite may
denote aristocratic tendencies on the
part of my boarders, but I don't ap
prove of it. Most of these acquired
tastes are a perversion of the natural
animal appetite, and it is likely to
prove harmful In the end. The trick

Cats of Ancient Egrpt.
By some persons the popularity of
the cat in Egypt has been attributed
to the fact that the animal was valu
able in ridding the palaces of rats and,
mice and also in hunting fowls. There
are soveral paintings in the British
museum, executed by ancient Egyp
tian artists, representing Egyptian
sportsmen in boats on the river Nile,
accompanied by large cats, sitting on
their haunches in the stern. Other
pictures show the cats swimming with
birds in their mouths after the manner
of retriever dogs. These pictures have
greatly perplexed modern naturalists
because the cat of today has a strong
aversion to water, and it Is difficult to
reconcile such different traits even aft
er the lapse of thousands of years.

It tins been said that a man should
be in very good health if he takes no
more than three different kinds of food
at any one meal. It should be served
as nearly as possible In its simple
state. More food is required on a
damp. raw. cold day than on a cheer

what we crave for is best' for us.
though In cases of illness this point
-should, not be strictly adhered to.
Men require a good deal more food
than women those who work hard

life those who are growing more then
those who have reached maturity.

Athletics attract much more atten
tion In England than in America. The
people are more enthusiastic, and It IF
not unusual to see 15.000 or 20,000 peo-
sports three and five times a week, so"
that an ambitious runner can All bis

able prizes. An American champion
has no Idea of the reception tbat awaits
him. The many sports committees at
tend him, and be Is shown tiite hospital

It Is no extraordi:!- thing to be In
vited to a dinner in your honor or to
stay a few days with the lord mayor
of the city. All of these affairs, one
must admit, are a great handicap to
his training.
The prizes abroad are, as a general
rule, very valuable, much more so than
In America. They are not wholly con
fined to silverware, such as cups and
the like, hut It is nothing extraordi
nary to see an athlete departing from
the races with a sewing machine or
hatrack, and in some cases I have seen
orders for beds. The lucky competitor,
as a rule, can have any article he de
sires, and, as many British athletes are
married, they generally take the most
serviceable article.—Arthur F. Duffey

Boat Indian Children.
East Indian children from their ten
derest years are more carefully trained
In certain respects by their mothers
than the children of the most civilized
peoples. The moment the youngest ba
by ceases nursing its lips are closed by
its mother. If the baby does not keep
them closed, she uses mechanical means
rigidly and even cruelly. When the ba
by is put to sleep, it Is strapped on to
a board, its head slightly raised and its
chin lowered, which tends to keep the
mouth shut. The result is that when
the teeth are forming and making their
first appearance they meet and .contin
ually feel one another. Thus they take
their relative positions and that health
ful and pleasing regularity that gives
to the American Indian as a race tbe
most manly and beautiful mouths in
tbe world.
Not Much of a Showman.
The showman's little boy had a
Noah's ark which he examined with
some contempt.
"Say!" he exclaimed at last. "Noah
wasn't much of a feller, was he?"
It was suggested to the youngster
that Noah succeeded in gathering to
gether a pretty good menagerie.
"Good!" exclaimed the boy scorn
fully. "Huh! Where's the two head
ed calf and the six legged goat and
the ishthyosaurus and the elegianto
pard and the magnicintelope? Why.
if Noah set up as a showman In these
days he couldn't make expenses."
"He couldn't?"
"Of course he couldn't. Why, say.
he didu't have a thing in his ark ex

He had entered the shop of a grocer
and returned with some plums, which
he offered to the attorney with great
delight. The man of fact was as
much astonished at the offer as Shel

It has been ascertained' ''by a #ci:

of the valley of the Cheddar gorge is
caused by the jointing in tlie limestone.
The rock, be tells us, Is traversed by
two systems of joints, which appear to
be vertical or nearly so, intersecting ap
proximately at a right angle. The''joint
surfaces form salient and re-entrant an
gles, the former opposite to the latter,
so that if the two sides of the glen were
brought together they would seem to
interlock. Water above or below the
surface would soak along these opei)
joints and widen them irto fissures, am
this movement sometimes to the right
and sometimes to the left, would follow
zigzag lines, so-that the natural course
of the current would by its continuous
action excavate a valley of this unusual

A Verified Story.
A group of railroad men in New Or
leans were talkin- about the fastest
rides they ever experienced, says the
Times-Democrat. One man in relating
his experiences said: "Across bayous
and through marshes we rushed like
mad. When we reached the Rigolets,
the most remarkable thing I ever saw
took place. The train was traveling so
fast it sucked the water up behind it
as it rushed across the trestle, and I
couid hear the fishes groan us we flew
over this neck of the gulf. Most re
markable thing I ever saw in the way
of fast runs." And he lapsed into si
"I am glad you reminded me of thaf
run," said another member of the
group. "I had forgotten the incident.
I can vouch for all you say, for I
on the back end of the last coach, am
the water which was sucked in behind
the train by the vacuum almost wash
ed me overboard, but I held on all
right, and when we made the crossing
and the waters had receded I picked
up on the platform of the rear coach
the finest bunch of fish I ever saw.
They were no doubt the fish you heard
Smallpox In Olden Days.
The first accurate description of the
nature and ravages of smallpox is that
of Rhases, an Arabian physician, who
flourished in the tenth century and
was the author of books on medicine
and alchemy.
This terrible scourge was also de
scribed in most of the ancient Chinese
and Indian books. In China' it was
known as the "bean disease" and
traced back to the times of the Em
peror Hwang Wu, who reigned A. D.
The earliest Chinese treatise on
smallpox was published hi 1323, and
from tiiis it appears that inoculation
has been known and practiced in the
far east since the Sung dynasty, A. D.
9G0-1127. Chinese experts hold that
the poison is communicated by thj
parents to their offspring, so that all
possess its germ In their constitution,
waiting only for circumstances favor
able to its development.
Tlie Marine Flag.
The revenue marine service flag, au
thorized by. act of congress March 2.
1799, was originally prescribed to. "con
sist of sixteen perpendicular stripes,
alternate red and white, the union of
the ensign bearing the arms of the
United States in dark blue ou white
field." The sixteen stripes re^tc-sc-iited
the number of states which had been
admitted to tbe Union at that time,
and no change has been made since.
Prior to 1871 It bore an eagle In tbe
union of the 'pennant, which was then
substituted by thirteen blue stars In a
white field, but the eagle and tbe stars
are still retained in the flag.
Slope of Rivera.
Generally speaking, the slope of riv
ers flowing into the Mississippi from
the east is on an average about three
inches per mile. Those entering it from
the west have an average descent of
about six incbes per„mile. The aver
age desceht per mile of the Missouri
after It leaves tbe mountains Is reck
oned at about a foot tbe Des Moines
from its source to its conjunction, witb
tbe Mississippi, 7 3 Inches. The entire
length of the Ohio shows a fall of even
five inches. The Mississippi fiipm the
mouth of tbe Ohio to the gulf has a
fall of but 2% incbes.
