The Stake In tSe Game, A party oí apacbtti en if red a Fori ctfe to bne a game of ullllnrJ. Tbe frame was curried on to rent uiyslery end absorbi-il all the tutere! nud at-t.-nilon of the players. They bad an rni-niy who was to I "Uotx; for." and whoever lost the gnme wits to "do" blm. When the game was over the loMcr accepted the result without dla cusNlon. Not long afterward a worft muc was stabbed fatally as he was coming out of a dance bnll. The man who had stabbed Ulin quickly 6mp peared, and the worfcinnn was placed la a cab and driven to an address which he had given,. This was in certain street where a slater of his was living. The man was barely able to get out of the cnb and to explain th.-.t he hrtd toen "tabbed. Ills case was so serious that be was conveyed to a hospital and died a few hours later. The police then made an Inquiry and learned how the murder was delib erately decided upon and savagely executed. The workman himself did not know that bis Ufe was staked on a game of billiards. Turin Cor. Lon don Telegraph. Scotch Acoent Toe Muoh For Him. The ouly real blot on my visit to Glasgow, says a writer In the London Sketch, Is my total Inability to speak with a Scottish accent I rather pride myself, as most people do, on my vocal Imitative faculties, but I confess to all the world here and now that I can not imitate the Scottish accent My Irish la beautiful; It would make all Dublin weep. My American In quite good; I could nearly always get any thing that I wanted In the shops tf I had the money. Anybody can talk Welsh who cares to substitute "p" for ub" and "f" for "va." But the Scot tish accent eludes me. Sometimes I speak a little Scottish, tentatively, to the policeman or the tram conductors or the shopkeepers. The policemen draw their staves, the tram conductors stop their trams, and the shopkeepers pot up their shutters. I am not qnlte sure, but 1 rather think that I shall abandon the unequal struggle. She Was Persistent A huge package once reached Sir Walter Scott from a young lady in America for which he had to pay $2"i expressage. it contained a. manuscript play aud a letter from the fair author requesting Scott to read and correct her work, write a proloRn nod an epilogue, arrange for its production at Drury Lane and negotiate with a pub lisher for the copyright. That was bad enough, but worse was to follow. About a fortnight later arrived another mighty packet, charged with a similar postage. Scott, who bad not grown wiser by experience, paid the cbnrgcs and opened tho parcel. Out came a dupli cate copy of the play and a second letter from the authoress, slating that as tho weather had been slonny and she feared something might have hap pened to her former manuscript slio had thought It prudent to send him a dupllcute.

FidelitY anl Guaranty Co, Bay your bonds Instead of etlllnr on friends who nasy not Hew Centipedes Walk. An hmlueut authority has Investigat ed tlio peculiar wary motion of centi pedes and millepedes to determine the manner In which these animals man age to uso their superabundant pedal extremities so gracefully and harmo niously. It has been found that the legs move In groups or waves, each wave including a definite number of legs. The number of waves Included In the length of the body Is constant for each species. In millepedes the waves of each side are synchronous. In centipedes they are symmetlcally alternate, giving rise to beautifully ac cordant movements. The difference may be explained by suggesting that the mlllepedo moves like a pacing horse, the centipede Uke a trotter. Chicago Record Herald. . A Pleasant Surprise. A yornig man in Indianapolis felt bis heart sink as be pulled from his mall bog a letter of the wedding in vitation type. That was the fifth bo bad received this season, and ha bad begun to wonder whether be bad any friends left tn the single state. "Another Ove dollar bill busted to smash," be mourned. Then be opened the envelope. But it whs only the announcement of a wed ding that bad taken place the week before. And be. found in the same cover a check for $5. It was then that be recalled bet made with a friend years before. The conditions were that tbe one first mar ried should pay the other $5. Indian. apolla News. - And Upside Dawn at That, "Where dues this train stop next? asked tbe nervous traveler on an un certain railway. "Well, boss." replied tb porter, "dar's three washouts an' some bad track right along here, an' she's liable to stop mos' any place moa' any min ute.'' Washington Star. Experienced. "That trained nurse Is quite remark able. She made a man I know cough up a brass tack at the hospital.'' "That's nothing to what site can do. Bhe made the young doctor she's en gaged to cough up a diamond ring." Baltimore American. Married Women's Nimit In England and In the United States a womnn loses her Identity In mnr rlage. In Belgium and Spain the bus band ndds the name of his wife to bis own. In the .United States womn sometimes retain the family name, as Mrs. Harriet (Deec-her) Stowe. In the Channel islands the womnu never loses her maiden name, lu Spain the ehlldren write tbe names of boti parents, as I.ltireua y Monteverde. In "Don Quixote" Is the following: "Cast) Jo was my father's name,-and I, for being the wife of Suucbo Panza, im called Teresa Pansa, bnt by good right they ought to call me Teresa Casnjo." In Scotland both names are preserved, and the womun la always known by her maiden 'name. In Wale it is tho custom to describe the wot nan by her maiden name. Tbe fact that a woman on becoming tbe wife of s man loses her Identity Is apparent in many portions of tbe Bible, when under the ancient custom man, on taking a wlfo, declared that she be came "flesh of my flesh and blood of my blcod," thereby establishing the old time saying that man and wife are one. Richmond Times-Dispatch. Tyranny of the Tip. There have always been those who have revolted against the tyranny of the tip. So long ago as October, 1705. we find that ubiquitous personuge, "Constant Reader," venting his griev ances In the columns of the London Times. "If a nmn who hns a horse puts op at an inn," bo complains, "be sides tbe nsnal bill he must at least give Is. to the waiter, fid. to tbe cham bermaid. Od. to the hostler nnd fid to the Jackboot, maklug together 'is. Cd. At breakfast you must give at least Cd. between the waiter and bust lor. If tbe traveler only puts up to have a refreshment, besides paying for bis horses' standing be must give 8t to tbe hostler; at dinner Cd. to tbe waiter and 3d. to tbe hostler; at tea Od. between them; so that be gives away In tbe day 2a. (Id., whlcb. added to tbe 2s. fid. for the night makes Ss. per day on an average to tho servants." They did the thing pretty thoroughly tn those days. A Millionaire. The term "millionaire" Is of Inter national use, but It does not mean tbe same thlug in the mouths of different nations. To every one It means tbe possession of a million, but not neces sarily a million dollars. , In Great Britain a millionaire has a million pounds, or nearly f.",000,000, while In France they count francs, so that there a millionaire is n compara tively poor individual with but 5'JOO, U00 to bless hluiKelf with. Million aires are quite common In Prussia, hut a million marks dou't mean much these days, amounting to a trifle of $2.V).(H)0 in our money. For mil lionaires of real class it is necessary to pn back to old llubylon. The Baby lonian millionaire had 1,000.000 talents and would not bo regarded as a poor man even by a Wall street oUlce boy. A talent was about $2.000. and a mil lion of them would be $2,000,000,000. A Triple Play. It was at the end of the ninth in ning. Vet. though the home team was two runs to the good, things looked black for ttiem. The visitors were at bat There were no outs, and three men were on bases; also Terrible Terry Tonikina was tip, nud Terry's butting average reached the clouds. Terry bunched his shoulders and waited conlldeutly, and a groan went up from the bleachers. Tbe ball Hew In three pieces, and the pieces tlew In three directions. Oue was caught by the pitcher, one was pulled out of the air by the shortstop, and one landed in the lirst hasemuu's mitt A triple play I The guuie was the home team's. The bleachers went wild. Philadel phia Times. Breaking It Gently. "I have tailed, sir, to see the photo of the lady with $2o,000 who waoLs a buslmnd." "Can you keep your face straight?" "Of course I can." "Very well. We'll break you In flrst with the $5.000 applicants, and thep gradually, as you grow stronger, we will work you up to the big prize. This way, please, and don't get fright ened." Exchange. Dinner Among the Romans. The Romans in tbe time of Cicero and Augustus took an early breakfast, from 8 to 4 In tbe morning; a luncheon at 12 or 1, and at about 3 o'clock tbe cocoa, or principal meal of the day, corresponding with our dinner.
