U-ci ltlaaa 'IW3 - t TO SCARE BURGLARS. A FEW DEVICES SOMEWHAT OUT OF THE COMMON RUN. Thry May Happen to Frightea People Who Art) Not Bnrslara, bnt There Ia Ko Doubt Tha Moat of Them Are Calculated to Scare Every Time. A little party cf Tcomen, brought to gether last week by a family reunion over iu Brooklyn, bad tinder debate a communication recently printed in The tun respecting domestic devices to serve as bnrglar alarms. . "We believe in tin," said one. "John cat a little groove like half of an anger hole across the tops of the front and back doors, a few incite back fiorn tbe outer edge, and before we go to bed we poke into each one a stick supporting some old tinware on the extreme end. A leaky watering pot, with some old tin enps inside, hangs on one, and on tho other an old dishpan, with a couple of baking tins tied to it. So long as the door stays shut nothing happens, bnt if it is implied open the least mite of a crack down comes the tinware with a clatter fit to wako up everybody in the ward." "That's all well enough for your doors, but how cbout tho windows? A thief can open one of these new fangled catches by poking a table knife up be tween the sashes, as easy as you'd suv scat." "But that wouldn't open our win dows. John has bored holes slanting in through tho window exshig into the safches and put long iron pins in them. It is just as if every window was nailed fast, and a burglar, to get in, would have to cut away the whole sash. " "Did any of yon ever try newspa pers?" asked another. "No? Well, let me siKsure yon, from my own experience, there is nothing better. Lay one or two dry newspaper sheets in tho lower hall and pin a couple on the stairs. It is im possible to step on them without mak ing a noise that, in the stillness of night, would surprise you if you never tried it before. Ami you can't pick them up or fold them or slide them out of the way or step over them without more noise. As for tho ones on the stairs, they ar-i simply the thief 's despair. Sly husband laughed at me when I first put them down, bnt within a week, as it luippeut'd, their efficacy was proved. I was awakened one night by tho rustling of paper iu tho hall below and awoke my husband. We lay quiet and listened. Presently there was another rustle. Then a long silence. Then more rus tling, and as the sound of it died away we could hear somebody swearing in a whisiier. It was so funny that my hus band bnrst into a roar of laughter, and tho fellow down stairs jerked the front door open and fled. " "I don't think scaring a burglar away is enough punishment for him," commented an elderly woman. "Ife ought to be hurt sonieh.tiv. Mr. B. thinks so, too, and his 'warm welcome for the uninvited' is something that, as he says, 'just about fills the bill. The bolts on our front door and the are light before it free us of all apprehensions of attack from that direction, bnt twice our house was entered by petty thieves tlirough the back door, which faces a dark gartleu and is in tho shadow of a vine covered porch. The second time inspired Mr. B. with an idea. At one sido of the door, about tho height of a mau's face, he fastened to the wall a springy bamboo cane, with a tin cup wired to its free end. During the day it can be turned up on the wall out of the way, but at night, when he sets it for business, it is sprung out about feet and held thero by a short stick and a figure 4 trigger so set that opening the dxr will trip it. Tho tin cup, I omitted to mention, holds a good ounce of cayeuno pepper. "For a mouth after Mr. B. rigged that contrivance up nothing happened, and he was getting low spirited over the neglect of the bnrglars to take note of his new invention. Then, one night, the sharp 'spang' t.f the cane against the wall rang Fharply all through the house and woke us up. That was fol lowed immediately by language on the bat k port h fit to make youi blood run cold. We got to the window in time to sre two men in the garden, one leading the other, who was howling and swear irg terribly. We fancied that some of the reppr r had got into his eyes. Before Mr. B. could get his pistol they had disappeared in tho shrubbery, and we have not been troubled since." "That trigger, set to go off when the door was opened," remarked another woman, "reminds me of a horrid thing my husband brought heme with him ft nm a trip out west hist year. It was like a pistol barrel, with a long screw on one sido for fixing it to the door frame and a long spring on the other to project over the edge cf the door. A lit tle tench would mab the spring fall hard nn a cap r.nd fire the thing off. Tho first night after Jack got home, when I was setting a chair upside down against tho door, as I always did, he stepped me and put cn his new contrap tion. When I got up first in the morn ing, as usual, I had forgotten all about that thing, which was down as low as my knees, and did not notice it when I weat to go ont. Then it suddenly seemed to me as if the world bad ex ploded. The thing had worked all right, and in addition to making a noise louder than the sunset gun at the fort, had rid dled the vestibule wall with buckshot. Jack said 'it would have filled a bur glar's legs with lead,' and I believed hi m, but I never would allow him to put it cn the door again. One such scare is enough for a lifetime." Kew York Sun. Dla Eogliah Fit. "What makes the rhinoceros so sulky tcday?" asked the gun. "tfoine cue told him his clothes did Dot Ct him," explained the springbok. "Dear me! And he is very angry at that? He is so thin skinned. " Indian-: opolis Journal ' ' A cATAL MISTAKE. It Waa Mode by a Profuae Frenchi Ia His LeaTe Taking. A citizen of France who has an invet erate habit of confounding everything which is said to him and has been en deavoring to acquire a knowledge of our vernacular was about leaving his board ing house for a more comfortable quar ter. All the little mysteries of his ward robe, including his last nether garment and umbrella, had been packed up, when he bethought to himself the un pleasant duty now devolving upon him that of bidding "ze folks" goodby. After shaking his fellow boarders cordially by the hand and wishing them, with incessant bowing, "ze verree best success in ze virl" and "ze benediction du chief," he retired in search of hi3 "dear landlady," to give ber also his blessing. He met her at the staircase, and advancing, hat in hand, with a thousand scrapes, commenced his speech : "Ah, madame, I'm going to leave you. You have been verree amiable to me, madame. I will ncvare forget you for zat. If in my couutree, I would ask zer government to give you a pension, ma dame" The giiod lady put down her head and blushed modestly, while onr Frenchman proceeded: "Veil, I murt go. Yon know iu zeese life it is full of pain and trouble. If Got adopted ze virl vich Lamartine made in his poesie, zen zure should be no more paiu. Adieu, madame adieu ! Perhaps forever. ' ' Thereupon the Frenchman was mak ing his exit, when ho was suddenly called back by his landlady, who inter estedly inquired, "Why, Mr. C , you have f oigottr-n your latchkey. " Mr. C appeared amazed, apparently not understanding his iuteirogator. "Yes," continued Mrs. M , "you know it, is the rulofcr all boarders to give me their latchkeys. " "Oh,mr.damo," interrupted the Frenchman, with enthusiasm, "I vill give yoa not one not one, but zou zands!" and, applying the action to the word, ho sprang toward Mrs. M , and, embracing her tightly in his arms, kissed her most heroically. The affright ed Mrs. M , recovering herself at length, cried out, "The key, Mr. C , the key!" Frenchy, looking confused, confounded, ejaculates with heavy sighs : "Oh, madame, I zot you ax me for one kees, and I give it to you. Vat a f atale mistake !" Scottish American. A BIT OF PENCIL. Prize ficcanse It Ia a Veteran and Went Through the War. "I have a very fine and choice cabinet of relics and specimens of the latowar," said J. Fillmore of South Dakota. "In the collection is an old fashioned com mon lead pencil, only three-quarters cf an inch long, which was given to me by Major J. B. Fairbanks, who carried it through the entire war, and in present ing it to me the major gave me this bio graphical sketch of tho pencil: 'This fieucil is a veteran of the late war. When it enlisted, it was round aud of full length. " 'When tho war was over, it was, like many other veterans, badly used up. During its service it campaigned in dust and mud, over tho hills and plains of Maryland and Virginia, through the swamps of Mississippi, across the moun tains of Kentucky and Tennessee, again through Virginia, from the Wilderness to Appomattox. It has watched upon the picket line in daylight and in darkness, in heat and in cold, in rain aud in snow. It has taken part in many skirmishes, and in more than half a score of regular battles, and in addition it went through the siege of Petersburg, and was en gaged in several of the assaults upon that stronghold. With it, for eight months, while the owner was first ser geant of his company, he kept the daily record aud report of the company. " 'It wrote the name and the number of those on detached service, of the ab sent with leave, of those daily detailed for ordinary camp tlutics toccasioually for some special duty, of tho number present for duty and of the sick in quar ters. At the roll call after battle it has noted the names of those who did not answer. It has recorded the names of those men as killed in battle, wounded iu battle, died of wounds, died of dis ease, discharged on account of wounds received and disease contracted in line of duty. In its own wait it has written its humble page in the history cf the most eventful epoch of all times. Pre serve it and cherish it.' " Kansas City Times. "Vox Popali," Not "Voi Del." We all know a favorite aud much quoted proverb is "Vox popali, vox Dei. " Is it not, perhaps, of all proverbs, the most fallacious? Was it not Carlyle who asked, "How many fools does it take to make a public?" Does not anoth er popular proverb say, "Too many cooks spoil the broth?" It is a vulgar er ror to believe that many persons togeth er can decide better upon a subject than one person alone. An optimist, might argue that this belief has taken birth from the modesty of mankind, a pessi mist that it has arisen from the desire to escape responsibility. The popular notion is that a number of intellects can be summed up into one hole, but the fact is they limit each other and act as a clog. "Men," said Galilei, "are not like a number of horses attached to a carriage, all pull ing together, but rather like a number of loose horses running a race, of which one gains the prize. " Blackwood's Magazine. Hie Prize. Father (who has given his consent) I hope, young man, that you know the value of the prizo you will get in my daughter? Young Man Well er no, sir.

A Museum Full of Curious Reminders of the Old Itnltie League. But one of the most entertaining places was tho Hanseatie house, or mu seum, which stands in tho Finnegaard, on tho Tydskebrygge. It is the last re maining habitation occupied by that no torious ring of German traders who set tled down iu Bergen, Norway, in the fourteenth century and monopolized its commerce for some 200 or iiOO years, until its power was finally broken in the eighteenth century. All the other houses have been burned or otherwise destroyed, and this was the only one left standing. We climbed up to a room in the sec ond stcry, about 8 by 15 feet square, and here were shown a large number of curious articles formerly used by these old merchants. There were scales and weights, tho latter being of two sorts one for buying and one for selling clocks, lanterns, candlesticks, snnff boses, washing bowls, drinking cups aud tankards, machines for chopping cabbage and staves with bags for mak ing collections in church. Wo were also shown lamps that wero fed with cod liver oil, not then used for medicinal purposes ; decorations made cf strips of dried codfish, and the arms of the league half an eagle aud half a cod, the lat ter surmounted by a crown which sug gested the origin of the term "codfish aristocracy." Then, through a dark, rickety stair way, we continued our climb to the third story and were shown tho mer chants' busiuess offleo and the apart ments for tho clerks and bedrooms for all. These last were the most curious of tho whole suit, for the bods are con structed like the berths of a ship and are clofX'd on ono side with hinged or slid ing doors, while on the other shutters open to a passage beyond to enable the female domestics to wako the beds without entering the men's rooms. The Hanseatic community was supposed to be strictly celibate iu order to prevent its members from intermarrying with Norwegians, and thus allowing the na tives to obtain a share of tho monopo lized trade. Boston Transcript A Dwarf Takes Second Growth. Sir Geoffrey Hudson, the celebrated English dwarf of the seventeenth cen tury, was doubtless the most widely known human curiosity of his time. He was born of parents of the normal size at Rutlandshire in 1610. At birth he weighed less than a pound and a half, and was only 8 inches in length. He did not begin to walk until after the end of his third year, his height at that time being less than a foot. At tbe end of his seventh year he was taken into the fam ily of the Duke of Buckingham, having between the ages of 3 and 7 years added but four iuches to his stature. With Buckingham be lived until 30 years old, at which time ho was only 18 inches in height when equipped in fashionable high heeled shoes. At the age of 30, however, a remark able change came over the midget, and for the next five years his growth was as remarkable for its rapidity as it had previously been for its backwardness. At the ago of 30 his height had been scant 1 a feet At 35 it was 3 feet and 9 iuches ! How or why this remarkable change was brought about was a ques tion too deep for the iSneicty of Royal Surgeons, who, time and again, discuss ed the phenomenon without arriving at any satisfactory conclusions. Hudson lived to be C3, which is three times the average length of life among giants. St Louis Republic. I'roved IU Fortune Teller You may in time make a good income, but you will never be rich.
