Virginia Girl Who Wanted to B a 'Circus Rider Escapes from Home in Boy's Garb. Elizabeth Calvert Austin, of the f a asi ous old family whose fortunes were closely connected with those of Lord Baltimore in the' early days of the Maryland colony, and whose ancestors fought under Washington in the revo lutionary war, dressed herself In her brother's clothes the other day, cut off her hair and ran away from her home .t Proffitt's Station, Va., to become a circus rider. : Miss Austin is 17 years old, tall, slen der and pretty. The fact that she did not succeed in getting away and was taken hack to her home, tearful and re pentant, was due to the good sense of a brakeman on the Virginia fast freight, who notified the Washington - -I ' IN HER BROTHER'S CLOTHES. police that "a mighty ' pretty girl, dressed in a gray sack suit, several sizes too large," had stolen a ride on Ills train from Proffitt's Station to Alex andria. ' , - , , ' V According to this same brakeman. Miss Austin has nerve enough to be a circus rider, or almost anything else. When he was on his run to Alexandria she was sitting on the edge of a flat jcar, swinging her feet over the side, and 'engaged in the apparently con genial task of cutting her hair off close to her head with a dull penknife. "Won't you please help me?" she aid to the brakeman, and the brake man helped. Afterwards he explained to the police that Elizabeth was half through the operation when he arrived on the scene and that she had made euch a ragged job of it he thought he might as wen neip. so he got a pair of scissors from' the caboose and trimmed her hair almost as well as' a profession al barber could have done. , When the freight train reached Al exandria the brakeman gave the girl some good advice and took her to the home of a woman friend, who supplied her with a complete outfit of woman's clothes, bought her a railroad ticket and started her for home , But Miss Austin did not go in that direction, for two hours later she ap peared at the Florence Crittenton mis sion in Washington and asked if she might stay there for awhile. She ex plained, with apparent sincerity, that she was a professional circus rider, but had been ill and consequently was out of a position. Her uncle, William P. Early, came after hfer and took her home. , She said she had run away be cause "things were so awfully slowV in Proffitt Station, and because "circus riders have such an exciting time." Milk in Mechanics. Twenty thousand quarts of skimmed milk a day are used in Austria for mak ing substitutes for horn, ivory,, amber and such like things. The icasein In the milk is precipitated by a chemical proc ess and then mixed with formaline. This produces galaith, or petrified milk,5 a hard, elastic, insoluble substance' that is easily worked. The Austrian dairy experts think that the demand for the skimmed milk for this purpose will be great enough to increase the profit in the butter-making business by produc ing a ready market for the by-product. ' : A Hygienic Hint. ' Many housekeepers do not know that the tiny black specks seen on almost every lemon are the eggs of an insect. If the grated rind is used these eggs become an unwholesome element of the dish. Lemons should be dropped into water as soon as they come from the store, then scrubbed with a little brush, dried with a cloth and hung in a net In a cupboard until used. Detroit Free Press.

Sir Hiram Maxim's "Monta. Carlo," just published, is not only a book in which . the mathematician will revel and the moralist find subjects for many sermons, but a' storehouse of strange stories. Sir Hiram mentions a player who admitted a loss of ?425,000 In sixteeu years. In other words he must have staked $25.u00, 000 according to average play or more than forty tons of gold. Sir Hiram has much that is inter esting to say of. the. famous "system" by which Lord Rosslyn and the late Mr. Sam Lewis broke the bank or at least the authorities, pretended the bank was broken. The two players went to a trente-et-quarante table, and " each staked a maximum of 12, 000 francs upon black. Black came) up and they were paid 24,000 francs. Again they staked the maximum and won. When ; they had scored seven consecutive wins the bank was again broken. A bell was rung and much ceremony was observed before more money was delivered, and then the play went on. The bank. was. again declared broken, and with more cere mony more money was sent for. Hun dreds of people had gathered round, and everybody staked on black, which came up seventeen times. The eighteenth coup was red, and Lord Rosslyn and Mr Lewis lost 12.000 francs each. Sir Hiram was skeptical as to the bank being broken. "I did not believe for a moment that the bank had actually, been broken. I knew that there had been a great deal of play that day, and that the win nings of this particular table must have been heavy Indeed. I therefore remained to see the money taken from the table, when I found that it was exactly as I had expected there was at ieast a peck of large bank notes. It had not been necessary for the Jjank to send for money at all; this had only been done for effect, and a valuable advertisement had been obtained." Bear the J9 ha Kind You Have Always Bought Signatory of . Pennsylvania black bears nevei played a more cunning nor more ex pensive trick than the family of black rascals who all of last winter robbed Farmer Eli Mack, of Bobst Mountain, Pa., making him the poorer by at least $250. Though . . Mr. ; Mack suc ceeded in killing ; three of the .thieves after the mqst sensational of disclos ures made upon his sadly depleted stocK of potatoes and apples, yet both hides and pelts were not in a con dition that commanded much money. He made less than $40 out of the three bears, so that he is yet over' $200 to the bad for having furnished a win ter's forage to a ravenous family. . Mr. Mack had one of the best litVte fruit farms in Lycoming county. His high, dry and south-slope fields yield fruit that keeps well. One-half of his orchard is of the russet variety an apple that is a splendid keeper, so that it has long been his custom to store this variety of - fr,uif in a spe cially; built cave until spring, when market prices reach double the figures commanded in the fall and early win ter months. Last fall he stored 180 bushels of russets. '' A small section oi the cave was reserved for 75 bushels of late fall potatoes. . It was late in November when he closed and sealed j the cave for the winter, with, expecta- tions of a good market and robust pric.es during April and May. ' t But imagine the chagrin of the Macks when they opened the cave three weeks ago, to find that nearly all the fruit and the apples were gone. Last fall, in order to accommodate a larger quantity, of', apples, they had dug the cave further into the hill, and at the , extreme rear had hollowed out a! chamber as wide as . the rock walls 1 would permit. Every apple was gone out of the chamber, and in the' bottom of the cave was a yawning hole that ran somewhere into the depths of the earth. Lowering a lantern into this hole, Mack and his boys were not long creatures who had worked their way through to the apple cave. Their en largement of the, cave had, they found, extended, across the crevice extending to the bear's den, save for a shallow covering of clay, and this, some time during;"; the winter, the bears had 'Scratched away, thus opening the way to the juicy russets that musf'liave poured themselves down in a golden shower at the feet ; of the ravenous bears. ? The .potatoes went the way ot the apples, and when Fanner Mack opened the cave to get a load of the latter for : market at the rare of $L20 a bushel, there was hardly eaough left to fill a-barrel. There were still about 20 bushels J3f apples in the cave, show ing that during the long winter's feast the bear family had devoured over 150 bushels of the russets. , v XXiiVX- . -;' ' Leap Year in the Ukraine. J ' " In one part of "all the Ruisias," the province of Ukraine, it is always leap year as far as the female privilege ot proposing is concerned. It is said to b customary there, when a young woman falls in love with a man, for her to go to his father's house, and in the most tender and pathetic manner plead with the young man to take heras his wife. She promises the most submissive, obe dience to his'will if he will but accept her. If the young man says: "I beg that you will excuse me from this," she tells him that she is resolved not to de part until he shall promise to take her for better or worse. She accordingly takes up , her abode there and remains until he is wooed and won or until he ends the siege by fleeing to parts uri known.
