A Costa Rican Wonder.
"The National theater, at San Jose,
Costa Rica, Is a wonder," said a gentle-
man who has recently returned from
that city. "In point of beauty it Is said
to stand third among houses of ■ Its
kind In the world. It cost $3,000,000
to erect, and the work of construction
occupied many years. The design fol
lows the Grand Opera House of Paris
In a general way, although of course
the building is very much smaller, and
the material is white marble and Mex
ican onyx. The main entrance hall
and foyers contain some superb pieces
of statuary, and the decorations were
done by European artists of reputa
. "When a visitor sees it for the first
. time, standing in the midst of a strag
gling little Central American capital,
with a suburban Jumble of mud built
adobe huts, he feels like pinching him
self to find out whether he isn't dream-
Ing. The people of San Jose are im
mensely proud of the house, as they
well may be, but they are .so far
away from amusement centers that the
only regular performances are by an
opera company hired by the govern
ment in France or Italy for a brief sea
son every year.
"It is an interesting fact' that all the
Central American capitals have dis
proportionately fine theaters, kept up
by the government. The revolutionary
presidents have found it good policy
to amuse the people. It takes the
place of public improvements." — New
Orleans Times-Democrat.' -
The Burglars' Terror.
A burglar, well known to the police
of the larger cities, who was recently
taken Into custody, told a reporter that
"a little dog" was more terrifying to
the "profession" than any burglar
alarm or detective.
"Guns be Mowed!" said he. "I'm dead
willin to take a chance wld a fly cop,
too, and the tinklers and sitch ain't
troublln me a little bit But a bit of a
dorg! Yessir, I hates them: little
'purps' worsen poison. The big fel
lers—St. Bernards and them— you kin
make friends with. Give them a bit of
meat and they're all right But when
one of them little dorgs comes at you,
a-barkln and yelpln, you got to skin out
quick or you finds the hull bouse a-top
of you.
"There aln'.t no makln friends with
them. They know you don't b'long
there, and they're just a-goin to git
you out or know the reason why! The
'Come, Fldo, nice doggy,' racket ain't

He Got the Gun.
Several years ago Colonel Jack Chirm
visited Texas. He brought •with him
a negro valet, Sam. This negro had
been a slave In the Chirm family be
fore the war began in the states and
Idolized his young master. One | night
while In Houston the darky came to
Chirm and said :
"Massa Jack, I'ze goin out In cullud
society heah tonight, an I'd like to bor
row dat ivory handled six shooter of
yonrs to take along."
"Why, you black rascal," returned
the colonel, "some of these Houston
coons will take that gun away from
you and break It over your head!"
■ The darky straightened up. like his
master, he was a man of unquestioned
nerve, and there was a peculiar glitter
In his eye as he said:
. "Massa Jack, you let me hab dat gun,
an If I don't show up heah wld hit In
de mawnln you can go down to de
morgue an throw down de sheet an
say, 'Lawd, don't he look nacherl!' "
Colonel Chlnn's body servant was

.The Valet; Hl* Opportunity.
! The Comte de Brienne, talking of the
violence of so.ne masters toward: their
servants, said that on one occasion,
having corrected his valet for some
grave dereliction of duty, he had for

ing, while shaving him, the man sud
denly held the razor to his throat, say-
Ing, "Whose turn is it today, M. le
"A moi toujours; continue," was the
calm reply.
"He finished shaving me, and we
were mutually pleased with each oth
er," but relations became somewhat
strained after such an Incident and
the comte gave him 100 louls and his
dismissal. "Never beat your servants,
young men," he concluded; "your! lives
are at their mercy, and you would find
It hard, as I did, to owe it to one of
them."— Cornhlll Magazine.

Btwica and Hl»' Veal Cutlets.'
| Absentmlndedness was j a marked
trait In Bunsen's character, and many
amusing anecdotes are told of the diffi
culties it brought him. The statement
that he remained a bachelor because
he forgot his wedding day is of course
apocryphal, as is the other about his
putting on a suit of garments on the
top of others that he had forgotten to
take off, but the following came under
my personal observation: . . ,
Bunsen used to dine every day at a
little table reserved for him in a res
taurant connected with the hotel In
which I lived. One spring he fell into
the habit of ordering veal cutlets and
asparagus, as 'the chief item for his
meal, and without reflection or feeling
that a change of diet would be agree
able he continued to order "kalbs
cotelette and sparger daily for several
weeks until one day the kellner grave
ly informed him that asparagus was no
longer In season and could not be sup
Bunsen seemed to be immensely tak
en aback and to realize for the first
time that he had been dining on one
dish for a long period". He soon re
covered himself, however, and asked
the waiter for the bill of fare, from
which, after careful examination, he
ordered mutton chops and peas, and
this was his daily diet up to the time
I changed my hotel.— Science.
Her Pet Superstition.
It Is Inconvenient at times, to cay the
least to be the superstitious woman.
No matter how hurried she may be, she
feels obliged to take time to dispel the
hoodoo. And, as if there were not
enough signs and superstitions already
well known to keep the ordinary per
son busy, those who traveled down
town on the west side elevated train
the other morning learned of another.
Somewhere up town a woman came
Into the car and walked its full length
before she found a vacant seat At
Twenty-third street she absentminded
ly fell In line with the other shoppers
and started toward the door. She was
almost out when the thought of what
she was doing flashed Into her mind.
The idle passengers, ready to be Inter
ested In anything, were surprised to
see her right about face and start to
ward the other end of the car. She
reached the door just as the guard
closed the gate. A little verbal per
slflage ensued.
"Let me out! Let me out!" she com
manded. But the guard stood firm.
"Why didn't you get out the other
door?" he said. "I will go out the same
way I came In," she said, "with great
dignity. And down she rode, to the
next station, all on account of her pet
superstition.— New York Sun.
The Courage of Rawki.
One female bird in her first season
took 32 rabbits, 3 hares and 2 magpies,
and In the next year 210 rabbits, 2 lev
erets, 11 partridges, 4 magpies and 2
squirrels. A goshawk will go on catch-
Ing rabbit after rabbit or take five or
six birds In succession, for they do not
tire like falcons. Nothing comes amiss
to them. Hares, landrails, pheasants,
rabbits, waterfowls, ducks, rats, stoats,
weasels, mice, even a hedgehog is not
Their headlong courage Is simply as
tonishing. They will charge Into a
quickset hedge till they have to be cut
out or dive among rocks and bowl
ders. Captain Bland of Draycott, near
Stoke-on-Trent, had a goshawk which
stuck to a hare till It twice rolled head
over heels. Then the hawk flew after
It again and was shaken off, while the
hare escaped Into a flock of sheep. The
same bird, pursuing a rabbit flew right
down a large hole In the side of a
quarry and dragged the rabbit out of
it The "smash" with which a big hen
goshawk goes into an evergreen tree

How Helena Won.
"Let me tell you something funny
about the capital of Montana," chats
Victor Smith. "In 1892 the competition
rested between Helena, . Anaconda,
Butte City, Bozeman, Great Falls, Deer
Lodge and Boulder, without a decision.
In 1804 it was reduced to a match be
tween Helena and Anaconda. W. A.
Clark was for Helena. • Marcus Daly
was for Anaconda. Anaconda seemed
to have the best of It, when the genius
of Clark prevailed. He made no at
tempt at bribery. He just said to
every voter he could lay hands on:
" 'If you want a dead cinch, I'll
give it to you. Go and bet $5,000 at
even money or any odds you please
that Helena will be the capital. If you
•lose, I'll make good the $5,000. If you
win, you return my $5,000 and keep
the winnings.'
"Needless to say, Helena was chosen.
And the arrangement did not cost
Clark a cent"— Kansas City Journal.
A Doable Kick.
The late E. D. Blackmore could nev
er endure to have advertisements print
ed on his books, and when a cheap edi
tion of "Lorna Doone" appeared with
a flamboyant assertion on the back
cover that "Blank's cocoa Is the best"
he sent a peppery letter to the publish
er and ended with the. quaint anticli
max, 'And, besides, I have had to drink
chocolate for some time, and I know
Blank's cocoa is the worst" ■
Fish I.lvlne In Hot Water.
There is a pond at Golconda which is
fed by the waters from the hot springs.
This pond has an area of two or three
acres, and the temperature of the wa
ter is about 75 degrees, and in Some
places where the hot water bubbles up
from the bottom the temperature is al
most up to a boiling point. Recently a
discovery has been made that tills
warm lake is literally alive with carp,
some of which are more than one foot
long. All cfiorts to catch them with a
hook and line have failed, and they
will not touch the most tempting bait.
A few of them have been shot, and,
contrary to the general supposition, the
flesh was hard and palatable.

The following retort is recorded of
Mr. Maurice Barrymore: Once at the
Hoffman House, New York, an Eng
lish stranger Interfered with the con
versation of a knot of friends by a long
tirade against all things American. He
finished by an attack on our spelling.
"Why, you can't even spell correctly
in this confounded country! Honour,
h-o-n-o-r; labour, 1-a-b-o-r. What do
you think of that, Barry?"
"Well," replied Barrymore slowly

There Are \o Such Thins* aa
"Gangs" of Criminal*.
"The 'gang' Idea us applied to crim
inals is a ridiculous blunder," said an
experienced detective. "There are no
such things except in story books.
There seems to be something about the
Inner Jiature of confirmed crooks that
Forbids them to band together. Honest
folks Instinctively drift toward each
Other and form societies and combina
tions for self protection and mutual
Interest, but criminals are exactly the
"Safe burglars generally work in
parties of three, but that is because
three men are necessary to the average
'Job'— two to manipulate the drill and
other tools and one to 'pipe' or watch
the outside. Whenever it Is , possible
for a burglar to 'turn a trick,' as they
call It single banded he is certain to
go alone. It is the same with all other
"You read of a 'gang of pickpockets'
descending on some country fair. They
do their work in pairs, so in that case
It would simply mean that six or eight
of the crooked couples happened to
strike the placn at the same time. The
detective novel theory is that criminals
are organized Into great societies with
regular heads and cast iron laws and
bylaws, to violate j which means sud
den and mysterious death.
' "That is all rubbish. If such an or
ganization was formed, the police
would know it ten minutes after the
first meeting adjourned. One of the
things that keep thieves apart is their
horrible treachery. I have been a de
tective for over a quarter of a century,
and I never knew a single crook who
would not betray any other crook

The Peculiar Way Some Men Act
When They Are "Wounded.
If you take a dozen soldiers as like
each other as peas so far as height,
weight, strength, age, conrage and
general appearance go and wound them
all in precisely the same way, you will
find that scarcely any two of them are
affected alike.
One man on receiving a bullet in his
leg will go on fighting as if nothing
had happened. He does not know, in
fact, that he now contains a bullet.
But perhaps in two or three minutes
he will grow faint and fall.
Another man, without feeling the
slightest pain, will tremble all over,
totter and fall at once, even though
the wound is really very slight.
A third will cry out in a way to
frighten his comrades and will forget
every thing in his agony. A fourth will
grow stupid and look like an idiot
| Some soldiers wounded in the slight
est manner will have to be carried off
the field. Others, although perhaps
fatally injured, can easily walk to the
ambulance. Many die quickly from
the shock to the nervous system.
■ A very curious case Is recorded in
the surgical history of the American
civil war, In which three officers were
hit just at the same time. One had
his leg from the knee down carried
away, but he rode ten miles to the
hospital. Another lost his little finger,
and he became a raving maniac, while
a third was shot through the body
and, though he did not shed a drop of
blood externally, he dropped dead from
the shock.— New York Telegram.
Origin of the Boat.
Only lately has the original boat been
found in use and among the savages
of the south sea Islands. There the
natives take the stump of a tree whose
roots offer a good seat and, launching
this primitive craft, they paddle around
as contentedly as if there was no such
thing as a European steamer, and, to
tell the truth, they do not suspect its
existence. .
There can be no doubt whatever that
In this stump boat we have the original
method of transportation by water.
Accident certainly contributed to this
A tired swimming savage found a log
floating near him. He grasped it and
found that it held him above water.
He mounted his log and used a floating
branch to propel the log.
It was but a step from the log to the
more comfortable root of a tree and
another step from the branch propeller
to a shaped paddle.

When it gets cool, apply anottief and
thus continue by reheating the poul

be out of danger.
This simple remedy has never failed
In this too often fatal malady.
Usually three or four applications
will be sufficient, but continue always
until perspiration starts fVeely from
the chest
This simple remedy was formulated
many years ago by one of the best phy
sicians New England has ever known,
who never lost a patient by this dis
ease and won hte renown by saving
persons by simple remedies after the
best medical talent had pronounced
their cases hopeless. Personally we
know of three persons who were saved
by the remedy last winter In Boston
after their physicians had given them
up to die, and if a record was made of
all similar cases during the last six
years it would fill a good sized vol
ume.—"The World's Progress."
