The piano is one of our best known
innslcal instruments. It was invented
several hundred years ago and In Its
eurllcr Incarnations was known as the
spinet or the harpsichord and afforded
eminent artists tnas opportunities to
portray languishing ladies seated be

The piano comes either as an up

large, fiat proposition that takes up
several hundred dolars' worth of room,

The piano Is usually played by young
ladles until the young man proposes.
It is also played by young men In tin
pan song shops. In those places the
youth, who hns (lowing hair and a
discouraged necktie, allows a cigarette
to hang from one corner of his mouth
while he shouts a song from the other
corner and uses the loud pedal exclu
sively. In the old days, before women be

was considered quite some doings to

The French are particularly eloquent
on the subject of sauces. Among
their famous chefs are recognized
four great sauces Spanish. Veloute,
Ilccbamol and Germnn. The Spanish

as the seventeenth century. In the
eighteenth they were modified by the
masters of cookery, particularly by
Careme, who was called "the Raphael
of the kitchen."

juices extracted from a mixture of
ham, veal, chicken and pheasant Ve

Rice Stealing Coolies.
Among Chinese coolies a favored
method of stealing rice is to lean up
against a pile of sacks and stick a tin
tube through the sacking, the rice,
which Is dry, flowing naturally through

Flour Is also stolen In this manner, and
a common punishment in this cuse Is to
let the thief obtain a large quantity
and then pour water into his clothing,

fK TALES OF CATS.
Stories That Coma From th Hietorl
Tower of London.
Two stories of tho Intelligence and
sympathy of our feline friends wcr
told me during one of my numerous
tIbIIs to the Tower of Ixmdon while I
wss living In England. -
Southampton was a prisoner In the
Tower with the Earl of Essex during
Elizabeth's reign. In some strange way
or by some unrecognized faculty a fa
vorite cat of his found his abode and
suddenly appeared to him, having mado
an entrance down the chimney. After
his release by Jamos I., Southampton
had his picture painted with his faith
ful friend ot his sido. The portrait I
believe, can today be seen at Wilbevk
The other tale Is of Sir Henry Wyatt,
who was committed to the Tower dur
ing the reign of Richard III. and suf
fered much from want of clothing and
food. He would have perished if a cnt
had not come down Into his room nnd
warmed hlra by -lying on his breast
and saved him from starvation by
bringing him nn occasional pigeon
caugnt on the lends. Although ' the
keeper was under orders not to Im
prove bis food, he agreed to cook any
thing which Sir nenry provided .and
tho pigeons which the cat brought
saved his Ufe. He also bad a picture
painted showing the cat offering a pig
eon through the bars, of his celt Our
They Were Common In England When
Real One Were Taxed.
The window tax In England, a very
old tax commencing In the reign of
William III., was not discontinued un
til Lord Halifax changed It to the
house duty In 1851.
It must have caused a great amount
of consumption, anaemia and other foul
air maladies, for In 1850 there were
only an average of six windows In
English houses. Indeed, the British
architects are not yet free from the bad
influence of this tax.
In very many old houses In England
today there may be seen mock windows
painted on the walls for symmetry
hideous things. Not only were glased
windows taxed, but any hole In the
wall was Included. Indeed, In the early
days only very rich people in England
bad glass windows, and so precious
were these that they were carried from
one bouse to smother when people
moved their 'quarters.
Curious dodges were practiced to es
cape the tax, such as extending one
window across two houses or making a
very wide division between two panes
of gloss. The loss to the nation must
have been a hundredfold the revenues
collected from this bad tax. Boston
Th Word SeV
What Is the favorite word of the
English language? The Germans have
their "schlng" and "zug," which cover
many meanings. But we beat them In
the one word not "post" which you
might suspect of the supremncy of am
biguitybut "set" One always thought
that "post" was the word that meant
all things and nothing. The punster
should watch the word "set" which
has achieved nearly seventy columns in
tho new English dictionary. It Is a
small word, but Its meanings are al
most unlimited. You should Bet to
work on the word, which you use every
day In a hundred senses. And It would
be. a pleasant, popular game to set
down the number of ways In which
you have used that word during the

Th Greek Figure. .
Greek figures of men appear taller
and more graceful than those of mod
crns. Modern artists make the upright
figure seven and one-half times the
length of the head. The Greeks made
It eight times, lengthening the shin
and the longer sweep from knee to beel
gave the figure Increased grace and
dignity. The same plan was frequent
ly adopted by Lord Lelghton, In whose
paintings the same effect Is obtained.

WEIGHTS AND MEASURES.
Car With Which England' Standard
Every twenty years government offi
cials comparo tho current weights and
measures with the standards, which
are sealed up In the staircase of the
house of commons. There ore only
two standnrds, the finnnd wfclght nnd
th( yard mensure. The standard pound
Is of platinum, which despite Its weight
is no larger than a cnhlc Inch, and,
smnll ns It is, the metal of which It Is
composed Is worth 10. The standard
yard Is a bar of bronze thirty-eight
Inches long, on which o yr.rd has beeu
marked off In thirty-six divisions of nn
Inch. The greatest possible enre Is
taken of these two Important nrtlcles.
When a comparison is being mado
they are handled with tongs. The
pound weight Is weighed In the most
delicate of chemical balances, nnd the
yard is measured with a micrometer.
When they are done with the pound It
hi wrapped In n special soft paper nnd
laid In a silver gilt case, which is plac
ed In a bronze enso, this being put In a
wooden box, afterward screwed down
and sealed. Tho yard measure Is plac
ed on eight rollers in a mnhopany case,
which is carefully senled. Both cases
are then put Into a leaden casket, which
Is sealed by soldering. The pncklng in
not yet finished, however, for the lead
case Is placed In n strong oak box
When this Is screwed down it Is placed
In the hole in the wall. The -wall is

can only be obtained by demolishing it

AN EARLY PURE FOOD LAW.
English Baker Had to Be Careful In
th Old Day.
In the time of Edward I. of England
Innkeepers were not permitted to make
either bread or beer. The former they
were obliged by law to buy from the
baker nnd the latter from the brewer.
In "Customs of Old England" F. J.
Snell declares that If tho law defended
what was considered the legitimate
claim of the baker to a proper liveli
hood It wns equally solicitous for the
welfare of his customers and was most
severe upon tho baker who sold bread
deficient In weight or quality.
For the first offense he was drawn
on a hurdle through the principal
streets, which would be thronged with
people and foul with traffic, with the
offending loaf suspended from bis neck.
From a pen and Ink sketch of this cere
mony It appears that the unhappy
tradesman wore neither shoes nor
stockings and bad his arma strapped
to his sides. It seems also that two
horses drew the hurdle, which suggests
that It rattled along at a pretty Uvely
For the second offense the baker en
joyed another ride upon the hurdle and
then underwent an hour's exposure in
the pillory. If be proved so incorrigi
ble as to commit the offense a third
time his oven was demolished and be
was forbidden to follow his trude.
Queer Egyptian Burial Customs.
Tho Egyptians buve many curious
customs In connection with the burial
of their dead and the healing of tho
sick. At every Moslem funeral, for In
stance, there aro hired mourners, vary
ing In number according to the wealth
of the deceased. These funerals are al
ways headed by old blind men, carry
ing long staffs In tbelr hands and wall
ing loudly. They are followed by the
relatives and friends of the deceased,
and then comes the coffin. This Is suc
ceeded by two or three of the native
fiat carts common to Cairo, filled with
women mourners. Mourning, In fact is
quite a profession among the women.
Every day you see groups of them
squatting on the ground outside the
hospital at Cairo, waiting to be hired
