A few minutes later the negro, sam ple case, and tin cups, were in front of the store. The' traveling man was in the store. While waiting for him, the negro sat down on the sample case, and in less than a jiffy fell asleep. One of the tin cups was in his hand, and it fell, forward, as does the cup held by a blind man. Perhaps you won't believe it. but that negro collected 43 cents while he slumbered. Passcrsby thought him a blind mendicant. And maybe that por ter didn't enjoy the joke!

Husbands of the broad minded women tarried in the ante room waiting for their spouses to go home. One of these patient escorts was Leroy Sunderland Smith. He gazed through the glass doors once, sighed and returned to his chair. Men would come, inquire for their wives, and then retreat to the cafe below. One man heard a few minutes of a certain paper. He said: "If these women's clubs did not struggle with the prob lem of how to raise other women's children they would have no excuse for being." He flung out the last words savagely and then disappeared to the place where highballs are con cocted.New York Press. An Enterprising Woman. Miss Jessie McCubben of Alamo, Oregon, is the owner of a valuable mining claim in the Granite district, which she "jumped" precisely as the year 1903 came in. Learning that the claim would be vacant the 1st day of January, she drove through a blind ing snowstorm on the night of Dec. 31, the mercury 14 degrees below zero, and, waiting the advent of the new year, staked her claim. Another pros pector had done likewise earlier in the evening, but Miss McCubben was legally in the right, and the court sus tained her. She is a Portland girl, 19 years old.

Billiard Players. The game of billiards has grown in popularity of late with the fair sex. According to Shakespeare, Cleopatra played billiards with her favorite, Charmion, in the year 30 B. C. At present, the best women players are the French, who frequent professional games and eagerly follow the billiard news of the day. Patti is fond of the game and had a table made in this country to take to her Welsh castle, for which she paid $2,500. Among American billiard players of repute are Mrs. George Gould, Mrs. Edwin Gould, Mrs. Almeric Paget, Mrs. Burke-Roche and Lillian Russell. Bil liards are said to afford excellent ex ercise. Minister Bowen's Wife. Mrs. Bowen, wife of our minister to Venezuela, talks very entertainingly of the Venezuelans, whom she de scribes as models of domestic virtue. Many are also very beautiful, but they go out very little in public, being of .Spanish descent. Mrs. Bowen, who is slight in figure and of girlish man ners, was a MissClegg of Galveston, Tex. She is fond of pets, and among th unU sual ones entertained at the legation in Caracas are several par rots, a fine peacock and some monkeys which are allowed to roam at will in the garden.

THE NEW ARMY RIFLE. It Is Practically Certain to Be the Best in the World. The new United States army rifle is a remarkable evolution in small arms since the old Springfield single loader had its day.

It was part of this youngster's daily duty to answer the surgery bell, and usher the pros pective patients into the consulting room. One morning there presented himself at the surgery entrance a mechanic, with whom Buttons was on speaking terms. "Hullo, Jackson!" he remarked, "what's the matter with you?" "Oh, I just want to see the doctor," replied the visitor. "Have yer brought yer symptoms with yer?" inquired Bu tons, '"cos that's the fust thing he'll ask yer about.

Young man, when you. have finish ed your dinner to-night, go up to the roof or out in the street or yard liy your home and take a good, long look at the star of the evening.

In the second place you will have to lift your eyes and chin from the mire of the street about you to clean glory of Omnipotence. In the third place, you cannot look for five minutes at Venus or at any other planet or star without absorbing into yourself some of the calm, silent power which wheels this universe along its unbroken track, with never a slip of the tire or jostling of the axle.New York News. Charity in England. Some idea of the charitable disposi tion of the British people is found in the report of the charity commission ers, just issued. The total value of in vestments held by the official trustees of charitable funds at the close of last year was 22.314,735, divided into 22,798 separate grants. The ag gregate income from stocks, securities and annuities aggregated 646,517 in 1902. During the three-quarters end ing Dec. 31, 1901, 1,670 new charities founded by will or deed came to the notice of the commissioners, involving a capital of 6,500,000 and upward.

In the city of Monterey alone $10,000,000 was recently invest ed in one plant. The Standard Oil company has invested $18,000,000 in Mexican mines within two years, and will put in $40,000,000 more. 1 LAWYER WADE AN APOLOGY. Revised the Opinion as to the Intellect of the Court. Some years ago there \vas an old judge on the bench in Berks county, Pa., whose decisions, in consequence of numerous reversals did not always command universal respect. One day, in a case in which he was sitting, one of the lawyers lost patience at his in ability to see things in a certain light, and in the heat of the moment re marked that, the intellect of the court was so dark a Hash of lightning could not penetrate it. For this contempt the judge showed a disposition to be very severe with the offender, and it was only after much persuasion by friends of the latter that he yielded and decided to accept a public apol ogy. The following day the lawyer, accordingly, appeared before his honor anu made amends by saying. "I re gret very much that I said the intel lect of the court was so dark lightning could not penetrate it. I guess it could. It is a very penetrating thing." HAD HAD LONGER PRACTICE. Small Boy's Distinction Between Ap petite and Patriotism. Gen. O. O. Howard occasionally ad dresses juvenile patriotic clubs. An organization of this type entertained the veteran at a sociable and dinner. A little chap near the general dis played a good appetite. ''You eat well, my son," said the old soltlier, "Yes, sir." "Now, if you love your flag as well as your dinner, you'll make a good patriot," Gen. Howard's eyes beamed on the boy. "Yts. sir but I've been practicing eating twelve years and I ain't owned a gun but six months," was the laconic reply.New York Times. Most Expensive Tree in World. Probably the most expensive tree In the world is in the city of London, on the corner of Cheapside and Wood street, about midway between the Bank of England and St. Paul's. It is an enormous oak and is said to be 100 years old. It is protected by a clause in the deed of the property which "forbids destruction of tree or branches. Architects were oompelled to plan a rather peculiar building to avoid the branches. There it stands in the corner of one of the busiest streets in London, occupying ground of enormous valueand positively the only tree in the city of London outside of the parks. Development of the Electron. I Dr. Kaufmann of Germany, in a re cent lecture, traced the history of the development of the electron. The roots of the idea go back about twen ty-five years. The growth of the stem has taken place within the last ten years, and now we have a flourishing plant and a large literature on the subject. Broadly speaking, the latest theory accounts for inertia, suggests a cause for gravitation, explains the leading phenomena of the spectra of hot gases and co-ordinates hypothet ically a host of miner phenomena that seem at first sight to have no discern ible mutual relationship, says Electri cal World. How Snakes Decoy Birds. That the rattlesnake uses his tail to decoy birds has been observed a number of times by a correspondent of the Scientific American, who says: "The snake hides himself in the tall grass and imitates the buzzing of a bee. The insectivorous hirds, such as the phoebe and kingbird, are attract ed by the sound, and become an easy prey for his snakeship. I have seen rattlesnakes concealed in the dense foliage of trees twenty feet from the ground practicing the same deception on the birds and getting the bird every time." Queen Victoria Paid a Debt. King Edward's appointment of Sir Evelyn Wood to be a field marshal has brought out the interesting fact that the family of the king was once deeply indebted to the grandfather of Gen. Wood, Matthew Wood, a London merchant. It was through the gen I erosity of the old merchant that the duke of Kent was able to come to England from Germany so that the future Queen Victoria could be born ion British soil. The first baronetcy bestowed by Queen Victoria upon her accession was on Matthew Wood. Microbes Hard to Kill. That the microbes which cause dis ease /annot be killed by firing them out of a gun has been proved in offi cial government experiments. Mi '-crobes of maiignant postule, of ab scesses and of the intestine were smeared upon the face of the gun wad, put next the powder and fired into sterile gelatin nad agar-agar. In each case the microbes developed, each after its kind, in the medium re ceiving the wad. Rather Mixed.

One day while in Norway an oppor tunity was given to an American trav eler to see that the name of Bjorn stjerne Bjon son means much to all Norwegians. "A battalion of Nor wegian and Swedish cavalry, infantry and artillery, between 3,00K and 4,0u0 strong, was returning from its maneu vers to the post in Christiania," he i says. "In passing Aulestad the gen eral in^ command sent his adjutant in advance to get Bjornson's permission to give him an ovation. With his fam ily and guests assembled about him on the veranda the monumental figure stood with bared head to receive the military greeting. As each regiment passed in review below, presenting arms as to their chieftain, there went up a deafening shout of personal salutation from each of the soldiers, who then joined in singing the nation al hymn, to whose author they were offering this spontaneous salute. There was the unique spectacle of a man in private life, being accorded a military demonstration by the nation's army which a king might envy." RELIEF FOR RUSSIAN WOMEN. Newly Enacted Law a Blessing to Abused Peasants' Wives. By a newly enacted Russian law a peasant's wife, on showing to the dis trict judge d'instruction that she is habitually ill treated by her husband, or that he will not support her, and makes her the drudge for his own sup port, can demand a separate passport, with which she is at liberty to leave her oppressor and earn a living else where. Hitherto there was no possible redress or release for the long-suffer ing victim so long as it was obligatory that the wife's name was entered in the husband's passport and papers of legitimate. Anyone at all intimately acquainted with village life in Russia will readily appreciate the relief this brings to tens of thousands of peasant women who are the grievously abused domestic slaves and beasts of burden to their drunken and brutal conjugal proprietors. Bird Vengeance. A naturalist recently witnessed an encounter between a large swan and a little brown duck. The duck had apparently insulted the swan by trying to cross its path, for it was suddenly seized by the swan and held under the water until he was sure it would be drowned. But at last the swan let it gc and sailed majestically away. The duck, after taking breath, looked around to see where its enemy was, ana seeing it rose into the air and deliberately came down, flapping its wings, on the astonished swan's back. The swan fled in terror, and the duck, apparently satisfied, quietly swam away.Pearson's Weekly. To Clean a Sewing Machine. Place it near the fire to get warm, that the congealed oil about it may melt, and then oil it thoroughly with paraffin. Work it quickly for a few minutes, then wipe off all the paraffin and dirt and treat it to a little more clean paraffin. Wipe it again, and after the application of a very little of the ordinary lubricating oil it will be ready for use. People often shirk the trouble of thoroughly cleaning their machines like this, but a clogged and "heavy" machine under this treat ment will become like new, and its easy working will be an ample reward for any trouble incurred. Flimflammed Again? Has the alert J. Pierpont Morgan been fooled again? ln consequence of the announcement that he would place on exhibition a collection of car pets that formerly belonged to the royal house of Spain several Spanish newspapers have asked for an investi gation, as before the reign of Alfonso XII. the royal collection was complete. The Heraldo of Madrid insinuates that Pierpont Morgan has been the victim of unscrupulous dealers, who, it al leges, have palmed off imitations on the multimillionaire. Queen Victoria's Love of Flowers. Queen Victoria was a great flower lover from the days when a toddling child she made daisy chains on the lawns of Kensington palace, and per haps were them with more pride than she ever did her jewels. When she paid her otfe and only visit to Spain, Queen Christina asked, "Is there any thing the queen is especially fond of?" "Yes, flowers," was the answer, and so .flowers in lavish profusion decorated the streets, the houses, the railway station, and the palace. A Lingual Phenomenon.

CLEANLINESS AS A VICE. Young Matron Criticises Methods o/ Her Motner-in-Law. "Cleanliness is next to godliness, I know," said the yours matron whose mother-in-law lives with her, "but there is such a thing as carrying it too far, I think.

It's a wonder she did not wash her hat." STRENGTH OF MEN AND OXEN. Bulk for Eulk, the Former Are the Stronger. Few people know that a man, bulk for bulk, is stronger than an ox, but it appears that such is the case. The matter was tested not long since at a fair in America, one of the attractions of which was a congest of a yoke of oxen against an equal weight of men. A drag was loaded with granite blocks, weighing in the aggregate 4,95t pounds. The yoke of oxen that mad the trial weighed 3,220 pounds, and twenty men, allowing 160 pounds to the man, were set against them. Tile men teak hold of the drag first, and easily walked off with it, covering a distance of 95 feet in the space of two minutes. The oxen at their trial moved only eighty-five feet in the same length of time, and the men were accordingly declared winners.Pearson's Weekly. Governor Saves Boy's Life. It is fortunate for one Georgia youth that Gov. Garvin of Ehole Island is a physician and surgeon of standing. The governor and a number of north ern friends were at Andersonville to attend the dedication of a monument in memory of Rhode Island soldiers who died in Andersonville prison. While the exercises were in progress a carriage team took fright, ran away and upset the vehicle. Edwin Calla way, one of *he occupants, had his leg broken, the jagged bone severing an artery. Gov. Garvin, on hearing of the hoy's plight, hurried to his help, tied the severed artery and cut the broken bone, just in time to save the sufferer from bleeding to death. Bank's Burglar Trap Didn't work. In its account of the recent bank burglary at Allen, the Emporia (Kan.) Gazette explains that the trap set by the bank for robbers did not work. The trap in-question is unique enough to be interesting. "Above the vault," says,the Gazette, "was a thin ceiling and about a ton of sand above it. This was there in case cracksmen should attempt to blow open the safe, when the ceiling would burst at the explosion and the sand fill the vault, making it impossible to get at the safe. However, the ceiling did not burst and the sand remains undis turbed.Kansas City (Mo.) Journal. Chorus Girls of Wealth. Among the twenty girls who took part in an amateur comic opera per formance in Philadelphia the other evening were fifteen whose fathers are millionaires. It is said that the girls in question represented some $40,000,000. The affair was the big gest event among the Hebrews of Philadelphia for twenty years. A trainload of wealthy New Yorkers went over specially to take part in or witness the performance, which was given under the auspices of the Mer cantile club. Bra^e Sailor Soon Forgotten. Discouragingly tardy progress is be ing made with the proposed monument to Rear Admiral James E. Jorrett. It was thought that the gallant conduct and wide popularity of the admiral would have called forth generous re sponse to the committee's appeal, but that expectation has not been realized. The headquarters of the association are in Washington and Rear Admiral A. E. K. Benham is chairman of a committee having the matter in iaime diate charge. The Ones That Suffered. An aged Scotch minister, who was very boastful, says ex-Speaker Joseph L. Barbour of the Connecticut legisla ture, once said to his good friend. "Think of it!
