There have been several cases of this sort lately in different parts of the country, and in each instance, after thepoor, misguided creature had taken her life, the cowardly wretch fails to carry out his end of the gruesome bargain.

If you can't get to sleep count three billions, taking care to pronounce each number slowly and distinctly. If this does not prove effective get out of bed and turn eighteen handsprings. Observe a proper regard for the uni- i formity of the thing, and see that they are of the same size and veloc ity. If you still find you are unable to get into the Land of Nod, take a I walk around the block, and then, if this means fails, go and find a big i man and tell him he lies. He'll put you to sleep. Chemical Curiosities. Certain substances which are dead ly in their effects upon men can be taken by the brute creation With im punity. Horses can take large doses of antimony, dogs of mercury, goats of tobacco, mice of hemlock and rab bits of belladonna, without 'injury. On the other hand, dogs and cats are much more susceptible to the influ ence of chloroform than man, and are much sooner killed by it. Long Is Rapidly Recovering. John D. Long, former secretary of the navy, who has been under treat ment at St. Margaret's hospital, oa Mount Vernon street, Boston, for about two months, is now making fast progress toward recovery. He is able to sit up and has been enjoy ing this pleasant diversion for a few days. He is still under the eye. of his physicians, but it is said that he is gaining strength and may he able to leave the hospital for his home in Hingham within a few days. Pope Leo's Gentle Joke. It is said that when Pone L-eo read how Cardinal Gibbons was showereci with congratulations at the time of the Baltimore prelate's jubilee his holiness remarked jocosely: "I should have liked to see him, but the poor man is getting old and must now have a rest." The humor of the re mark will be apparent when it is re membered that James Gibbons is but a year older than Toaehim Peoci was when he was elected pope. Against Duty on. Works of Art. J. Pierpont Morgan, Chas. T. Yerkes and other wealthy men have formed an association the object of which is to secure a repeal of the tariff duty on paintings and works of art imported into this country. An appeal is to be made to President Roosevelt and in dividual members of Congress will be asked to use their influence to have the law changed. Mr. Morgan has more than $1,000,000 worth of paint ings stored in London. Paris and Ber lin. Yerkes has paintings to the value of $250,000 in his London apartments, and says he will not bring them here until the duty is taken off. The New Scent. You have discovered if you have a good nose that stephanotis is the swagger perfume. A woman in the holy ring of fashiondom tells how the scent is applied: "Never on the handkerchief, mind you, but on the bare skin, under the ears and on the palms and wrists. The skin absorbs the drug quality of all perfumes, and when applied in this way, only the sweetness is left. -0t &$ir' \9\ fff\ CHANGE E OWN I SCHNEIDER BROS. $ Successors to Barney Burton S TAKING NO CHANCE!). Irishman Thought He Had Learned a Lesson from History. A Methodist clergyman in the upper portion of the city encountered a Celt one recent rainy Sunday standing close to the wall of the church in an effort to utilize the coping as a shieW from the storm. "Come inside," said the clergyman, cheerily. "You'll be out of the wet and can have a seat while you're wait ing for it to clear." "No, thank yez!" said the Celt, em phatically. "Oi'll not go inta th' house uv me inimies!" "Well, that's rather harsh," an* swered the clergyman. "When our Lord was on earth, did He not go among His enemies?" "YisHe did that," assented the Celt, according to the Philadelphia Times, with growing warmtff, "and yez didn't do a t'ing to him, ayther!" German Criminal Catcher. Herr Eugen Fass has hit upon an elaborate method of alarming the inhabitants of a town whenever any great crime has been committed, in order to prevent the escape of the criminal. His idea is to erect in. all the most public parts of the town booths containing a table, writing materials, telephone and electric bells, and in front a large hoard for the display of the notices. As soon as a. crime is committed a bell is set ringing, which calls the near est policeman, who is inferred tele phonically of the details,-and these he promptly writes down and places them on the display board, so that he who runs may read. Thus, within a few minutes of the perpetration of a crime, a public hue and cry is raised, which it is hoped may end speedily in the capture of the crim inal. Baggage Smasher's Say. The other day an express wagon filled with trunks rattled up Broad way, and just opposite the postoffice a big Saratoga slid off and came smashing down on the car tracks. Several people ran out from the side wauk to rescue it. But the trunk proved to be empty, and there was lit tle damage done. "Now, if that had been full," said one old gentlman to the expressman, "you'd have had a fine old time with it." "Huh," replied the baggage charioteer scornfully, "full trunks don't fall off by their aelves. You got to fling them off!" Mew York Commercial Advertiser. She Struck It. They were standing on one of the mpstones of a culvert that took the refuse water of the city into the suburban canal. Suddenly a gurgling nound struck their ears it seemed to "come from the ground beneath their feet, and she excitedly exclaimed: "Hark, Hector! what sound was that? Seems to me it issued from some a-wearied soul whose life's last gasp was being borne into the re cesses of the nevermore."
