He Imagines possibly that the lady at the desk will think of the Inaccuracy in hU accounts whenever he presents himself and either patronizes some other lunchhuuse run on the "help yourseit plan or else poes to a restaurant where the responsibilities for all discrepan cies must fall on t lie waiter. It might be supposed that, rather than jose a gooa customer, me manager or a cafeterlon would let an occasional mistake of a nickel go unnoticed, because In most cases the mistake is genuine. Ho doesn't take that view of it, however. In order to give the best service for the money, to al ways have well cooked eatables set out on attractive dishes without nicks In them and keep an array of pies on the sideboard that are not shelf worn, he must watch cus tomers very closely A nickel means a quarter of a pie or a plate of rolls gone without any return. Then there is the moral effect on all patrons of the establish ment of publicly pointing to an occasional error in this way The average Chicago man, absorbed In the business which he brings in with him from the street, is not unlikely to overlook his second cup of cof fee or his special excursion to the side board, but after having had the disconcert ing results of such absentmlndeduess brought to his attention he is apt to audit his account with more care. It might seem decidedly difficult at first blush for one man in a cafeterlon of ordi nary dimensions to keep a mental record of the exact volume of food consumed by each of his patrons, but he soon acquires the faculty by practice. It is a little differ ent development of the hotel clerk's skill in wH-ing that there are no unregistered guests at table. The floorwalker at the cafeterlon, in an upparently casual circuit of the room, gets a mental photograph of the dishes before each man, and so associ ates this picture with the man that, when the latter comes up to pay, ho can tell in stantly whether his check Is correct or not.

Ono afternoon but a short time ago two prominent polk1' ollicvrs stepped from the door of the pn.icn station, and after ro mancing on the quietude of the street started for the courthouse. One of the olli- cers was remarking on the stagnation in police business and had just called atten tion to thi l.nl that there had been no murder committed for several mouth when er.uk! sounded therenortof what seemed to be a pistol. Hot h men turned quickly, but not see ing any oiw hut a lone bicycler leaning over Ills wheel both casped at tho same time: "What was that?" "It was a pistol shot," said one as he started on a run for tho alley back of tho barrel house row. 'It wasn't in that direction," called tho other. "It was this way," and ho started on a run east on I 'carl street. It was but a short tlmo until both offi cers appeared again at tho station houso, out of breath uud without prisoners. For a moment they considered what was best to do, when they again spied tho wheel man still examining his bicycle. He was the only person in sight, and to him they went for Information. 'Did you hear that pistol shot a few minutes ago? asked ono of tho officers. "No, I didn't hear no pistol shot," an swered the boy, who seemed worried over something. "uona', now, you nearu tnat loud re port. Now, what do you know about it?" said the officer, with some severity, for he thought the boy knew .more than he cared to tell. uni is that louu noiso wnat vou thought was a pistol shot? Why, that was this hero blamed bicycle tire busted," but tho officers were gone, and tho boy was left to enjoy his discomfort alone. Indianap olis Journal. The Invention of Glaus. The date of the original invention of glass has not been determined, but it was far back in the aires, for the art was known to the Kgyptians 3.500 years ago. Some writers believe that glass was in more gen eral Use in the ancient than in comt-ara- tlvcly modern times and alfirm that among tho Egyptians it was usd even as material for cotlins. 11 lass has properties pculiarly its own, one or winch is that It Is of no greater bulk When hut, or in the inelttl state, than when cohl.

THE ALERT FOR FIRES. t New York Englue Ilonse When an Alarm (Strikes. n the house of Kngine company West Twenty-ninth street, uear avenue, the other evening. A three firemen were engaged In conversation with their foreman around tho little desk above which spreads the net work of bells which are thrilled with anl xnatlon when fire breaks out In the big metropolis. Tho spirited horses in their stalls just buck of the shining engine were restless, and when a reporter entered the steeds were biting at tho chains which held them in check as if impatient to haul the ponderous machine through the streets at galloping jmico. Ono little bell was tin kllng a merry tune, but the big gong, at whose solemn command a whole brlgad of flro fighters makes ready to turn out, was llent. ine "nouse watch ' approached the re porter. "Husy night?" asked tho latter. "Well, you her it's been a busy night During tho last ..., hours we've had noth ing but alarms, and the men have been fooled every time too." ' I should like to see an alarm come in now," and the reporter glanced at the finely polished brass poles which ran on both sides of tho house to the roof. "Well, I guess we won't catch any more We ve had enough of sliding for" Hang, b-r-r-r-bang, b-r-r-r-bangl At the first stroke of the gong the rn glne houso seemed to thrill with ltfo. The 6toeds, which a moment before were rest lessly biting their chains, broke from the fastenings and ran under the uplifted har ness in front of the engine. Down the shining brass poles slid swiftly fireman after fireman. Conversation, games and even slumber in the upper floors had been rudely checked by that sound that was re verberatlng through the building When tho last fireman had reached his post, the gong still continued its "b-r-r-r bang, b r-r-r-bangl" while the foreman and houso watch noted carefully the strok and consulted the big alarm book It was no small signal that was being flashed over tho wires into every flrehouso In the city. b inally thero was in interval of ten sec onds. It told the company, "resting on its arms," that tho alarm was in. "003," said tho foreman, but still the men stood at their posts, the driver on the box and tho engineer in tho rear. Tho "re peater" was duo, and thero might bo mistake. Again tho comolex mechanism moved, and slowly the alarm came In for the second time. It was "663." 'That's the second 'third alarm we've had tonight," said the houso watch as he closed the book on the number which in dicated that a big fire was raging near tho signal box at ColuniBus avenue and Nino ty-slxth street. The horses were unhitched and sent back to their stalls, tho men returned to tho up per floorn, tho group around the foreman resumed their conversation, and the little bell tinkled on. New York Press. BODY GRAPPLERS. Some of the Diaicultira In Hecovrrlnrz Drowurd I'ersons. Grappling for dead bodies is a difficult and laborious task. In seaport clt ies where a harbor imjIico force is maintained the work of looking for jieople supposed to havo lxen drowned is allotted to them. In other places the regular police forco gener ally carries on the work, though it is not infrequent for private parties to grapple on their own account, with the hope of obtain Ing the standing reward offered by the state for the ncovery of drowned bodies. In Massachusetts tho amount of the re ward is $5, and it is paid to tho persons who take the body from the water. ii requires inno men to operate one grappler. Two are the oarsmen of the boat and the third is the man who controls the grappling iron. A grappler Is a straight bar of iron, upon which is fixed about a dozen iron hooks. The hooks are placed on two sides of tho bar. and thero is a lonir iron handle in the center of the bar, to which tho rope held by tho man in the boat is attached. In addition to the big hooks, thero are almut a dozen codfish hooks, attached all along tho iron bar by littlo pieces of cod line. Tho grappler is dropped to tho lxjttom and dragged along behind the boat. Tho moment tho hooks come In contact with anything on the bottom tho man with tho ropo in his hand can tell it in much tho same way that a fisherman knows when ho gets a "bite." It requires no great strength to haul a Isnly from the bottom to tho surface. It is then towed to the shore and landed, and then the med ical examiner is sent for to inspect it. It must not Ikj moved licfore. Of course it is often moro luck than any thing in Hndlng a iK'rson supposed to be drowned.
