The usual Hallowe’en pranks ■were played about town last Thursday night and amused some who escaped the antics of the spooks. Coming down town early in the morning of the aforemen tioned night, a counter was seen in front of the Marr’s restaurant, placed closely against the front door and behind the counter was a sheep and two hogs belonging to Mr. Marr. His hog pen was dawn in front of Cahill & Wells and their delivering wagon was inside the pen. A closet was also in front of the Marr restau rant a wagon or two and Charlie Harglerode’s sheet iron garage was moved out in the street in front of this office. Beer signs were hung on the Albany Hotel. The big coal wagon belonging to Albert Schultz was dissembled and scattered about town, taking about three hours to get it to gether. Up at the school house, two closets were carried into the lobby, a sheep putin each closet and the doors fastened. Other things happened too numerous to mention. No arrests have been made. MENAGERIE A COSTLY THING Captured Animal* Coat Circus Man No Bmall Penny, Though Their Value le Fluctuating. "I want to take little 'Georgia' to eee the animals,” la what every father says when he starts away from home on his annual visit to the circus, and the same bluff goes for little Gwendo len on Commonwealth avenue and lit tle "Mike” at the north end. Fond relatives always are glad of the ex cuse to teach the youngsters all about the anlmalB —and see the circus them selves —but the chances are that they do not appreciate the true significance of a menagerie. • To the circus vis itor It means strange animals and thrills, popcorn and peanuts. To the circus company it means something like $750,000, Bays the Boston Tran script. This figure, however, Is by no means arbitrary, for the value of wild beasts fluctuates remarkably. To day the value of a rhinoceros may be SIO,OOO, but let a few more rhinos be hauled from their African lairs and be put on the European market, and the value per animal may drop 50 per cent. Another thing that affects the valu ation of wild animals 1b the question as to whether they are acclimated or 'green.” The mortality rate among the latter —animals fresh from the jungle —ls exceedingly high. The wild ani mal that has demonstrated the fact that It can live In a cage, particularly a cage that hops, skips and jumps over the country with a circus, has more than tripled his value. A fresh chimpanzee from Africa Is worth from S3OO to SI,OOO. Let this same chimpanzee prove by his con tinued existence that cage life Is not mortally tedious to him and Im mediately his value leaps to $2,500. Another instance 1b the giraffe. In spite of the fact that It is a rare beast, Its Market value Is only about $7,000. The simple reason for thlß Is that the giraffe In captivity has such a small chance of continued ex istence that the average showman does not care to gamble $7,000 on It. The elephant market fluctuates a great deal. The price of a "green” ele phant runs from SI,OOO to $5,000. Get that elephant used to captivity and his value jumps; but train him to stand on his head, ring a bell, beat a drum or balance himself on a rolling ball, and Immediately his value soars. That Is why the herd of 40 elephants In one big show Is valued at more than $250,- 000. The animals born each winter In the menagerie of a large circus are worth about $40,000. Old Trusty. The freeborn eltiien gets up when dew la on the grass And aeea hlmaelf reflected in • trust made looking glass. A trust controls the soap he finds at length upon the stand. And through the favor of some trust he takes his comb In hand. His shoes, suspenders, shirt and socks, the buttons on his coat, His handkerchief, his necktie and the col lar round his throat All came from factories that trusts per mit to operate; A trust allows him to have coal to pile upon the grata. By yielding to the sugar trust he makes his coffee sweet; By bowing to the beef trust he may have a steak to eat; The cracker trust, the flour trust, the coffee trust, likewise. Take tribute from the man who dwells where freedom’s banner flies. He rises from the table which a trust leaves In his care And on the trust made hall tree finds a trust made hat to wear. Now see the freeborn cltlsen upon the trust owned car; By paying tribute he may ride to where his duties are. He sits before a trust made desk—a trust has said he may- And, being free and equal, he tolls for the trust all day; At night a trust provides his light, and when his prayers are said The uncrowned king devoutly kneels be. side a trust made bed. Thus all his trust’s bound up In trusts that treat him as they please. He lives through favor of the trusts; to them he bends his knees. All, let us trust that when he dies and leaves this world of care Borne trust will waft him to the skies and give him glory there. Japanese Wedding. “From beginning to end. curiously enough, religion does not play even a small part In a Japanese wedding. No priest appears at any stage. On the evening of the great day, the bride, with a white silk covering on her head and face, and entirely dressed In pure white —not the color of Joy, but ol deep mourning, for the girl is now parting forever from her parents, more so, indeed, than if it was death that had taken her away, for aftei death her spirit would continue to be present in the home of her childhood, whereas now both body and spirit are gone—ls carried to her new home. There she changes her mourning for a festal garb. A feast Is celebrated • • * the young couple withdraw and • • • In the presence of only the middleman and his wife and oi two young girls who act as servants, they pledge each other In very solemn form, three times from each of three cups. This ceremony • * * is the essential part of the marriage celebra, tlon.”—Japan of the Japanese, by Jo seph H. Longford. . Swift Turtle. July is the month when the turtles come out of the sea and lay their eggs In the hot sand of the Florida keys. A turtle will accomplish this task In half an hour. She will emerge from the blue water, crawl up the beach, well out of reach of tide, dig a trench four feet long and a foot deep with her flippers, make In the middle of the trench a deep cylindrical hole, and, laying In this hole about one hundred eggs, she will fill up both hole and trench again and crawl back to the water. If the hen could equal this celerity there would be more money In chick ens than in Standard Oil.
