REVEALED BY GUESSING GAME.
His Lordship Found Out Vhat Servants Thought of Him. the A certain peer, an important figure in the upper chamber by reason of a very Ions and very bushy beard, had dismissed his valet for the night. Shortly afterward, however, he wo much annoyed to hear peals of laugh ter from below, and called back the man to explain. The valet answered that it was just a little joke, but his lordship would have none of it, and demanded details, angrily. "Well," admitted the man with ro luctance, "it was really a little game we were having, my lord." "What kind of a game?" "Well, my lord, a kind of guessing game." "Don't be a fool, Walters; I rans for you in order to get an explanation. What guessing game were you play ing? Guessing what?" "We blindfolded the cook, to tell you the truth, my lord, and then one of us kissed her and she had to guess who it was. The footman held the mop up and she kissed it, and then cried out: 'O, your lordship; how dare you?'" Dundee Advertiser. HONEST NAME IN ANY TONGUE. Various Renderings of the Good Old Appellation, "John Smith." John Smith plain John Smith is not very high sounding; it does not suggest aristocracy; it is not the name of any hero in die-away novels; and yet it is good, strong and honest Transferred to other languages, it seems to climb the ladder of respects bility. Thus, in Latin, in is Johannes Smithus; the Italian smooths it ofl into Giovanni Smithi; the Spaniards render it Juan Smithus; the Dutch man adopts it as Hans Schmidt; the French flatten it out into Jean Smeet, and the Russian sneezes and barks Jonloff Smithtowski. When John Smith gets into the tea trade in Can ton he becomes Jovan Shimmit; if ha clambers above Mount Hecla the Ice landers say he is Jahne Smithson; il he trades among the Tuscaroras he becomes Ton Qa Smittia; in Poland he is known as Ivan Schmittiweiski; should he wander among the Welsh mountains they talk of Jihon Schmidd; when he goes to Mexico he is hooked as Jontil FSmitti; if of classic turn he lingers among Greek ruins he turna to Ion Smikton, and in Turkey he is utterly disguised as Yoe Seef. Friends of SpCrrows. Rider Haggard classes sparrows with rats as "vermin" and recom mends a campaign against them. How ever, sparrows have had plenty oi friends in past ages. Catullus' poem about his Lesbia's pet sparrow is one of the prettiest things in Latin liter ature and In a passage of Plautus "sparrow," "dove" and "hare" occur together as terms of endearment Pepys, too, writes of a pet sparrow: "To dinner with my father and sister and family, mighty pleasant all of us; and, among other things, with a spar row that our Mercer hath brought up now for three weeks, which is so tame that it flies up and down and upon the table, and eats and pecks, and does everything so pleasantly that we are mightily pleased with it." Sheep Beasts of Burden. In the northern part of India sheep are put to a use unthought of in Eu ropean or American countries. They are made to serve as beasts of bur den, because they are more sure-footed than larger beasts, and the moun tain paths along the foothills of the Himalayas are steep and difficult. The load for each sheep is from 16 to 20 pounds. The sheep are driven from the village to village, with the wool still growing, and in each town the farmer shears as much wool as he can sell there and loads the sheep with the grain which he receives in ex change. After his flock has been sheared he turns it homeward, each sheep having on its back a small bag containing the purchased grain. Oldest Dated Decoration. Probably the oldest dated decoration in the world has recently been brought to ligh-. by the discovery of the funerary temple of King Sahura, who lived 2,500 B. C. It lies between the pyramids of Giseh and Saggarah, and has been unearthed by Dr. Bor charts, director of the German Insti tute of Archaeology at Cairo. Sculp tured has reliefs illustrate Pharaoh conversing with the gods, conquering j the Lybians and receiving an embas- j sy.

From an Old-Time Circu Poster. BUSY LOOKING AFTER OTHERS Physician Had Had No Time to Notice His Own Family. A little Cleveland girl returned to school the other day after an absence on account of measles. The teacher noticed that the child still had 'em. She called up one of the school physi cians, and he said the pupil would have to remain out of school another week. "Didn't your parents know that you weren't over the measles vet?" in quired the teacher. "No'm," replied the child. "You see, mother doesn't know much about 'em, and pop's a doctor, and he's been so busy with measles lately that he didn't have time to notice that I was still broken out." Her father is one of the most promi nent physicians in town. Oyster-Shell Window Panes. On the west coast of India is found a species of oyster, Placuna placen ta, whose shell consists of a pair of roughly circular plates about six inches in diameter, thin and white. At present these oysters are collected for the pearls which they often con tain, although few are fit for the use of the jeweler. But In the early days of English rule in India the shells were employed for window-panes. Cut into little squares, they produced a very pretty effect admitting light like frosted glass. When the Bombay ca thedral was built, at the beginning of the eighteenth century, its windows were paned with these oyster shells In Goa they are still thus employed. Eternal Fitness. "Women are wonders," said a man at the quick lunch counter. "A friend of mine sent me an invitation to the funeral services over her pet Angora cat that died in a fit. Now, I had never been invited to a cat funeral before, and I had no more idea than a rabbit what was expected of me. I was in a rush, and stopped in at an Italian florist's and told him to fix up a suitable design for me. He sent up a cat. life size, made of white im mortelles, with a huge purple bow dangling from the end of its tail. The maid says my friend regarded it as a deadly insult to her feelings, and I wasn't even handed a rain check when I called." Feud Simply Settled. In western China European travelers recently found a simple method of settling disputes. One of them writes: "While we called the midday halt at Ta-cha-de, we asked the villagers con cerning some new graves which we noticed in a field close by. They an swered: 'Our head man and two oth ers were killed three months ago in a feud with a village higher up the hills. 'Is it settled now?' 'Yes.' 'Did you report the matter to Lao-wo?' 'No. What would have been the use? We just settled the matter ourselves.' 'How?' 'Oh. we killed eight of the oth er party." Expatriates. "Funny what a little thing will give you comfort when you are far away from home and friends." said a girl who had just returned from France. "I sat on a platform at Cannes, too homesick and miserable to wish to live any longer. Suddenly I saw a big box. ad its label caught my eye. It held a farm wagon manufactured in my own home city in a western state. I went right over, sat on the box. kicked my heels against it, patted it, and said lots of foolish things to it, and took my train feeling a hundred times better In spirits." Excuses Not Needed. "There's no excuse for anybody's having any kind of illness," said the resolute person. "Perhaps not," answered the man who always tries to agree. "And a person who is really ill doesn't feel like being formal and begging some body's pardon, anyhow." The Irish of It. "How's yer husband after the acci dent. Mrs. GInnerty?"

Puck. j CHILDREN OF EXALTED TASTES. Little Ones Used to Dignitaries High Estate. of A well-known family in Catholic cir cles, living in Spring Garden street, and blessed with three very small daughters, spent last winter in Rome, where the small daughters were sent to school. The fam ily, being quite hospitably inclined, entertained quite lavishly some of the dignitaries of the Vatican. Returning Jo Philadelphia, they re ceived a hearty welcome, and among others some of their old priest friends called to bid them elcome home. The mother, always proud of her three small daughters, sent for them to be brought downstairs to sr:e the father. After awhile they came, the three little golden-haired girls: but thoy only stood in the doorway of the spa cious room and refused to come any further. The mother, much mortified at such behavior, said to the eldest: "Come In re. dear; den's you remember good Father , who used to come and see us from the cathedral?" There they stood, the three little blonde tots, and looking most disap provingly at good Father . the eld est spoke: "We " cardinals." is what she said. P...iadeiphia Public Ledger. NO WONDER SHE DIDN'T KNOW. Woman of Experience Not Hasty ir Expressing Opinion. Before he had been in the car three minutes most of the women passen gers and some of the men were ex plaining to their neighbors what they would do with the little imp if he be longed to them. Spanking was the popular remedy, and if that boy had received then and there all the pad dlings that his critics were aching to administer he certainly would have been well blistered. To the general babel of advice and fault-finding, however, there was one woman who contributed nothing. She was a gentle, gray-haired body, who remained unruffled in the midst of the small tempest raging. "If that child was mine," said the determined woman beside her, "I'd make him mind if I had to half kill him. Wouldn't you?" "I don't know," said the little wom an, mildly, "what I'd do." "You don't?" said the determined woman. "Well, I know. But maybe you are not used to children? Maybe you never had any of yinir own?" "Oh, yes," said the little woman. "I brought up 13. That is why I don't know what I would do." Concrete Not Modern. Concrete is a very ancient material for construction, but reinforced con crete Is scarcely half a century old. It is said to have started in a happy idea that came to a Frenchman who wanted large flower pots for his plants which should not be thick and clumsy. He reinforced them with wire. Now adays we see glass reinforced in the same way. especially about elevatro shafts. Coignet and others developed the reinforcement of concrete for build Ings, at first merely useful buildings like conservatories. As early as 1874 a concrete villa was built on the north shore of Long Island sound, but it was many years before the idea "took" here, although in France. Belgium and Germany it was seized upon with avid ity. Smith's Magazine. No More Gold Lace for Afghans. The ameer has published an edict, which applies to all parts of Afghan istan, prohibiting the import into the country of all kinds of gold lace, in cluding embroidered kuilas lungis and embroidered shoes. The ameer is ev idently actuated by a Sesire to prevent his subjects from spending their hard earned money on showy dress. It is the poorer classes who are notori ously addicted to this extravagance which his majesty has decided to check. The gold laced coat of the Afghan is decidedly handsome, and al though the ameer has acted wisely In bringing into general use clothing less costly, his majesty's orders will doubt less be receive by his subjects with rather mixed feelings. Proper Bestowal of Charity. Dickens: There are not a few among the disciples of charity who require in their vocation, scarcely less excite ment than the votaries of pleasure in theirs: and hence it is that diseased sympathy and compassion are every day expended on out-of-the way ob jects, when only too many demands upon the legitimate exercise of the same virtues in a healthy state are constantly within the sight and hear ing of the most unobservant person alive. In short, charity must have its romance1, as the novelist or the play wright must have his. I Sleeplessness. A good remedy for sleeplessness Is to wet a towel and apply to the hack of the neck, pressing it hard up against the base of the brain and fastening over this cloth to prevent too rapid evaporation. The effect will be prompt and pleasant, cooling the brain and inducing a sweet and peace ful slumber. Warm water is better than cold for the purpose. This reme dy will prove useful to people suffer ing from overwork, excitement or anx iety. He Guessed It. Howell What became of Rowel!, who was here when I lived here?
