A new way of passing the time on the railway train Is described by a writer in the Manchester "Guardian, who modestly adds that he does not think the game "as silly as putting Jig-saw puzzles together." My fellow travelers think I am asleep when I shut my eyes and lean back on the cushions of the railway compartment. But in reality I am amusing myself with a little game of my own, which I, call "traveling by ear." Tou can only do It satisfactor ily, of course, on a familiar bit of line, although It Is quite interesting on a strange road. On the route I travel almost daily, I know my way very well by the sounds of the track, I can ten to a yard wnen we are running on an embankment, when we slide Into a cutting, when we run through a station, and what station it ia (this mainly by the sound of the adjacent bridge that we run under or over). The sound of a deep rock cut ting is quite distinctive, and different, although there are points of resem Diance, too, rrom tne dun roar or a tunnel. Tunnels In limestone, adds our cor respondent, seem to me to have an in dividual and rather unpleasant sharp ness piercingness of roar. Upward gradients slacken the pace of a train. of course, and also alter what I can only call its "footfall" noise, and when we come to the top of an incline, It seems as if the train gave a kick as if to say: "There!" ere its laboring changes Into easy gliding and swifter speed on the level. On my homeward Journey our driver generally sUckens speed a trifle as we run over a ring lng girder viaduct; then after a few yards of deep cutting,1 we run under a wide and shallow bridge Just before the home station is reached. I time precisely my movements so as to open my eyes, rise to my feet, get my par cels off the rack, and have the win dow dropped exactly as the trair stops. a REALLY GOOD MUSICAL PUNS If 8uch Play Upon Words Ever Is Per missible, These Two May Be Pardoned. ' It is said that a respectable trades man of the name of O. Sharp was as tonished one morning to find that some musical wag had added to his name the words "is a fiat," which, however correct In a musical sense, was certainly far from complimentary to the worthy tradesman. There te another Instance in which a capital musical pun was perpetrated, equally correct in a technical sense, and equally uncomplimentary to the person at whose expense it was made. Two gentlemen were passing the shop of a music seller in the southeast dis trict of the metropolis, and the pro prietor was standing outside the door. As they did so, one of them pointed in the direction of the shop, and re marked: . "That liar is always outside!" The unoffending tradesman heard the remark, and wonderful to relate, seemed immensely tickled at the ob servation. The secret of it was that he thought the remark had reference to his sign a golden lyre over the shop-front. London Tit-Bits. Seeing Contemporaries as They Are. After all, the test of a vacation ia the renewed zest with which we take up our work on our return. The per son who lives among his contempor aries all the time has no idea what in teresting people they are. They ap pear even romantic when one returns to them from a short trip abroad. There is a moment before we begin again to do things, when we have leisure to see things. Of course, we must take up our re sponsibilities again. Our serious busi ness with our contemporaries is to Improve their conditions, their morals and their manners. We do not have too much time for this work. But be fore we begin again the attempt to make them what they ought to be, we may enjoy the moment when we have enough freshness of Vision to see them as they are. Atlantic Monthly. GUESTS ENJOYED A NOVELTY Presence of Monkeys at Formal Din ner by Mrs. Longworth Made a Dec'ded "Hit It happened that Mrs. Nicholas Longworth. the daughter of former President Roosevelt, and wife of the distinguished Ohio representative, had presented to her among many hundred other gifts, two little mon keys, who lost no time in sustaining their reputation for mischievous an tics, and kept the Longworth house hold in a panic as to what was going to happen next They were too nimble and quick to be punished for the evtf of their ways, and so, week in and week out the monkeys had a lovely time of It. When Mr. and Mrs. Longworth enter tained, the little creatures were shut up behind lock and key, and usually wore themselves out in their effort to break through, and went to sleep In consequence, from sheer exhaustion. This had always insured the suc cess of a party, without any disturb ing Interruptions, until one fateful night when Mrs. . Longworth looked up to discover a monkey grinning at her from the top of a picture. It was only a second until the other one climbed up the corner of the cloth, and snatched a few nuts from some of the panic-stricken guests. His partner in crime leaped from the pic ture and perched himself upon the shoulder of a guest, and the details of what followed are not laid down in the directions ' given- to polite so ciety as how to entertain. "But," laughed a guest not long ago, "I shall never forget how ut terly funny it was, nor how we all enjoyed it, just as soon as we were asured ; the monkeys would not ' eat us." Up to 1 A. M. the Situation In Jenka Home Was Reported as Re maining Unchanged. The battle at Short Jenks' home con tinues unabated, says the Atchison Globe. At eleven o'clock this morn ing Mrs. Jenks made the following official announcement: "With a bril liant charge about breakfast time I flanked my husband with my stalwart foot and he doubled up and then re treated in haste. It was almost a rout." At one o'clock this morning Mr. Jenks officially announced: "The situation remains unchanged. There have been attacks and counter-attacks on both sides, with no decisive results. I'm now well Intrenched and confident be hind a tub in the cellar. I believe I will ultimately triumph. The enemy Is making many claims, and making those things is the easiest thing in the world to do. If she had a cannon that was as rapid as her mouth I would be compelled to admit that my posi tion is serious. At is it, I concede nothing. I will conserve my strength and forces, with the view of getting out of the cellar and consulting a law yer. I urge American newspapers to judge not until the real situation Is known. History will vindicate me and declare that I did not start hostili ties. My sister-in-law urged my wife to start them. My wife didn't need a great deal of urging." Off to the Front. A theatrical woman went into a Broadway drug store and leaned upon the show case. A drug dispenser ad vanced precipitately and stood smil ing expectantly before her. "Have you got any smokeless pow der?" Inquired the woman sternly. The young man backed off in fear that the war news from the other side had unsettled the woman's mental balance. "Smokeless powder?" he gasped. "No, madam, we haven't any. You will have to go to a gun store for that" "You haven't got any then?" she persisted, piercing him with her deep, dark eyes. "No, ma'am," he said, all of a trem ble by now. "What do you call that in that box in the show case?" she asked, point ing at the article in question. "That's ordinary face powder, lady," he explained freely. "Well, that's smokeless, isn't it?" she said with a silvery laugh, and the drug dispenser was nearly overcome by the reaction. J off re's Nickname. In a note on General Joffre, London Truth says: "A man of bourgeois family, very much the soldier, very much the mathematician, very much the man of action, and quite as much the man of thought His family be longs to the eastern Pyrenees. An auctioneer founded it about a hun dred years ago. This ancestor went from village to village in a showman's van laden with goods. They were trumpeted by him as bargains, 'J'offre such or such an article at such and such a price!' he cried, when he drew up in the mayoralty square or market place of burg or village. He began at a high figure and went down gradual ly. Ills Catalan name proclaimed him a foreigner, and he adopted the nick name county folk had given him of Joffre le pere Joffre." uermanys sources of Wealth.
