The series of bravado bets which have
been so frequent in Paris rracbed ft cli
max when shop assistant, named Alex
ander, laid a wager of 600 franca that
be would swallow a yard of galvanised
Iron stove piping. Tbe bet was accept
ed and witnesses and referee appoint
ed. Alexander and one of tbe witneasos
went to buy the piping, wbioh was
about one-sixteenth of an inch in thick
ness and five inches in diameter. Alex
ander took It to a whitesmith and re
quested him to file it down Into a pow
der in the presence of the witness, who
ubeetraently carried it to a cafe in the
Rue de la Chapelle, where the operation
of swallowing tbo filings was carried
out Quito 100 persons attomlod as spec
tators. Alexander divided the filings
into five purtions, placed tbom in five
glasses of beer and tossed tbero off at
Intervals of ten minutes. He played
cards daring; the process of drinking,
and when tho last glass of beer and ita
tnetallio addition bail been consumed
the bet was declared won and tbe GOO

I resumed tbe search, with no better
success, but on tbe third day I found
bim in a dense thicket standing per
fectly rigid, with his tail sticking
straight out behind and one foot up. A
quail bad inn into a hollow tree, and
the dog stood at the opening pointing.
Tbe quail dared not come out, and tbe
dog, true to his training, wouldn't
move. De had been standing in that po
sition, without so ranch as moving a
foot, for 63 hours, and when I ttied to
load him away he could not walk."

- At a card party in the northwest a
few evenings ago a cross eyed man was
posing aa Nie man who knew it all, giv
lag bis positive opinions on every sub'
Ject in a loud voice and otherwise rank
Ing himself a general nuisance. A Bos
ton girl was particularly anuoyed at the
lordly air he assumed and the attacks be
bad made on some ox her pet theories.
Phe made up ber mind to bowl him over
If she ever got a chance.
It came sooner than expected. A fow
minute biter the Boston girl was the
' partner of the cross eyed man, who im
mediately proceeded to give elaborate
Instruction as to bow certain cards
should be played to insure tbom the
game. Be finished by saying. "Now. go

I have my eye on you." She never look

imaginable, said, "Which eye. Mr.

A friend writes ns from England : We
visited the simple tomb of William
Wordsworth in Orasmere churchyard.
Tbe old church stood near It, among
the anoient trees. The rapid Botha
passed the graves and the grand hills
lifted their green domes in the cloudless
iky.
We bad ridden past tbe poet tuned
lakes of Windermere and Grasmere,
with memories of Coleridge, De Quin
cey, Christopher North, Mrs. Hman
and Harriet Martincau, and bad rested
by Bydal Water in tbe shadows of Bv-
dal Mount
"Wordsworth," said one of our par
ty, calling to mind tbe author of tbe
"Excursion," "seems to be tbe soul of
all these scenes. He made himself the
ever prevailing spirit of the English
lakes."
"Barns was bis teacher," said anoth
er.
"How was thatr we asked.
There, under the grand trees lifting
their solemn tops to the sun, our friend
repeated a single verse from Words
worth's poem on tbe death of Burns:
I mourned with tboumnda, bat as one

Whose light I ballad when first it shone

Youth's Companion.
Bepaw Tiaaa For Lack.
The Rev. T. D. Withenpoon in a ser
mon at Padncah related an amusing
story of his experience while evangelis-
ing in the mountains. One day while
passing a cornfield in Leslie county be
was surprised to see long strings of
papaW bark knotted together and tied
to stumps. He asked bis guide what it
meant and was informed that it was
"to bring luck."
"And does such a foolish superstition
exist all over tbia community?" asked
the minister.
"Ob, no." said the mountaineer;
"tbe old preacher over In tbe settlement
yonder says papaw vines don't do no
good."
"An intelligent man," interrupted
Mr. Withenpoon. "I'm glad to find one
man who ira t lost in ignorance."
"Yassir," tbe native continued, "be
lows that yarn atnnga beats papaw
strings all bollow when it comes to
bringin lock. Fact is, be don't use
nothin but yarn strings. " LOhisville
Courier-Journal.
A Font Child.
Professor Sully, in an article in Tbe
Popular Science Monthly, commenting
on tne jealous regard for ceremony and
tho proprieties of behavior aa seen in the
enforcement of rulee of politeness by
children, cites a delightful instance
that fell under his own observation as
be was walking on Hampstoed heath.
"It was a spring day, and the fat buds
of tbo chestnut were bursting into mag
nificent green plumes. Two well dressed
'misses,' aged.. I should say. about 9
and 11. were Juicing their correct morn
ing walk. TjSe elder called the attention
of the younger to one of the trees, point
ing to it The younger exclaimed in a
highly shocked tone, 'Oh, Maud, you
know you shouldn't point 1 The notion
of perpetrating a rudeness on the chest
nut tree was fnnny enough. But the in
cident ia instructive as illustrating the
childish tendency to stretch and gener
alize rules to the utmost"
Opea Car Wladows.
A correspondent writing of open car
windows and the disagreeable draft
from tbe same suggests that screens
similar to those used in sleeping cars be
provided for coach windows, and that
only trainmen be allowed to place or re
move them. A lady writing to tbe same
paper suggests original tactics by the
person annoyed :
"Simply raise yonr umbrella or para
sol in front of Ton, so that the wind.
cinders, dust and smoke blow from your
umbrella on tbe back of the neck of the
person who sits by the window in front
of you. A very few minutes suffice to
convince this person that the wind is
blowing harder than be thought and
Is very disagreeable and uncomfortable.
So down goes tbe window, and also tbe
umbrella, with a qniet smile of grati
tude and content, with the result of self
protection." Sew York Tribune.

develop into an organization em

A SICK SAVAGE.
Bobert Loot Stevenson Telia of the Data-
aloaa af One of Ula Servaata.
Poor Misi Folo you remember the
tbin boy. do yuu not? had a desperate
attack of influenza, and be was in a
great taking. You would not like to be
very sick in some savago place in the
islands and have only the savages to
doctor you? Well, that was just the
way he felt "It ia all very well," he
thought, "to let these childish white
people doctor a sore foot or a toothache.
but this is serious I might die of this!
For goodness' sake, let me get away in
to a drafty native bouse where I can lie
in cold gravel, eat green bananas and
bave a real grown up, tattooed man to
raise spirits and say charms over me.
A day or two we l:eot him quiet and
got bim much better. Then he said he
must go. He bad had his back broken
in bis own island, ho said. It bad come
broken again, and ho must go away to a
native house and bave it mended. "Con'
found your back, " said we. "Lie down
in your bed." At last one day his fever
was quite gone, and he could give his
mind to tbe broken back entirely. He
lay in the hall. I was in the room
alone. All morning and noon I heard
him roaring like a bnll calf, so that the
floor shook with it It was plainly bum
bug. It bad tbe humbugging sound of
a bad child crying, and about 3 of the
afternoon we were worn out and told him
he might go. Off he set. Ho was in some
kind of a white wraDDins. with a creat
white turban on his bead, as pale ns
clay, and walked leaning on n stick.
Bnt, oh, be was a glad boy to get away
from these foolish, savage, childish
white people and get his broken back
put right by somebody with some sense.
Ho nearly died that night, and little
wonder, but he has now got better
again, and long may it last!
All tbe others were quite good, trust
ed ns wholly, and etaid to be cured
where they were. But then be was quite
right if yon look at it from his point of
view, for, though we may be very cler.
er, we do not set np to cure broken, backs.
If a man has his back broken, we white
people can do nothing at all bnt bury
bim. And was be not wise, since that
was bis complaint, to go to folks who
could do more? Robert Louis Steven

CRANKY GUESTS.
Kxperleace of Betel Clerk la Pealing
With Some of Them.
"I cannot sleep in that room," said a
guest at a hotel in this city last evening
as be walked to tho desk in the office
and threw tbe key upon it
"What is the matter with it?" asked
the clerk.
"There is nothing the matter with it
except that tbe bed is in tbe wrong
place," tbe guest replied. "For more
tban 20 years I have slept in a bed with
the bead toward tbe north,, and it has
become such a habit with me that it
would be actually impossible for me to
sleep with tbe heed in any other direc
tion."
"It will be irapoEsiblo for me to give
you a room containing a bed with the
bead in that direction," said tbe cleric
The hotel is well filled tonight and I
bave only two vacant rooms, but I will
have the bed turned for yon. " Calling
a porter, tho clerk instructed him to
turn the bed in the gentleman's room so
that the head would be to the north.
The curst followed the porter up stairs.
and as nothing further was heard from
him it is presumed that be retired and
slept peacefully.
"There is no accounting for tastes,"
said tbe clerk, turning to tbe reporter.
"and tbe fuuuy experiences wo have in
the hotel business wonld fill a volume.
Before tbe night is over wo may bave
calls for beds with their beads turned to
every point of the compass, and of
course we are obliged to accommodate
every one.
"I remember nn instance like this
several years ago. A man slightly ia
cbriated camo into the hotel one night
and producing 'a pocket compass said
that be wished a room where the bead
of the bed should bo placed to the
northeast W e sent two boys with bim,
and they tumod the bed as requested.
The joke was that the compass was
furnished with a little stop, which held
the indicator m a certain position. It
so happened that tbe gontlemau's bedj
which had teen carefully placed north
east according to the compass, was in
reality placed with tbe head to the
south. The man discovered his mistake
the next morning and was cured of the
fad." Philadelphia Bulletin.
