Intimately and Id his book, 'That Reminds Me," tells many stories of hi in. lie was dining at Portsmouth or noniewhere at a regimental mess to which the oflleerft had asked him with every kIiow of the highest admiration and with no appearance of nodal su periority. After dinner, as the party sat at wine, one of the officers asked Sothern to give them a recitation. Now, Sot hern abominated that kind of thing, lie wouldn't tolerate being treated as an entertainer when he was by way of being treated as a gentleman. He coldly declined. They pressed him. lie hotly declined. Still they pressed him. lie expressed his feelings. Per haps the officers were a little affected by wine. At all events they persist ed. They would take no denial. At last he wild In a manner whlcli showed that he was nettled, but yet yielding: "Well. If you won't let me off I must. I'll give you the dinner scene from 'David (Jarrlek. " He did. He had never acted It bet ter. They were delighted until, spring ing to his feet, he made his wild, tipsy exit. Just as he did on the stage, and dragged the cloth off the table and with It all the regiment's prized des sert china and decanters and glasses, etc. Cireat was the smash. The actor did not wait to be applauded or to im prove the occasion. The lesson was. In deed, a rough one, and probably only a, man with some roughness In his dar ing humor would have given It, but it was quite deserved. How llnrl Horn Work, Darwin after close observation found that a bee would often visit as many as 27 flowers In the course of a minute,, though with other plants In which the honey was ditllcult to extract the aver age would be as low as seven. Strik ing a mean between these two figures, one may say that an ordinary working bee visits l.r (lowers a minute, or SXX an hour. Considering the late hours to which a bee works. It Is probably no exaggeration to say that It Is busy for eight hours a day, allowing for Inter vals of rest. This would make It visit 7,200 flowers a day, or G1S.000 in a pe riod of six months. Mr. A. S. Wilson in a recent paper showed the enormous amount of labor gone through by bees In making even a small quantity of honey. Re found that approximately 12." heads of red clover yield 1T grains of sugar, or 123, OOO heads about two pounds. As each head contains some CO florets, it fol lows that 7..r00,0O0 distinct flower tubes must be sucked In order to ob tain two pounds of sugar. Now, honey contains, roughly speaking. o per cent of sugar: therefore the bees must make, in round numbers, 2.."00,000 visits for one pound of honey. Q next Inn In t'nnnnurred, A certain grocer on the hill has for some days been looking for the owrner of a voice that claimed his attention, at the telephone one busy morning. WBeni he finds the man. the meeting will fur nish material for an Interesting item,, and the following dialogue explains it self: The Voice Hello, there! Is that you; Charles? (Irocer Yes. The Voice Have you r.ny salt fish? G rocer Yes. The Voice-Is It fresh? f! rocer Yes; came In this morning. The Voice Cod or pollock? (Irocer 5ot both. Which do yctl want? The Voice Well, I don't know. I the pollock good and dry? (Irocer Yes. The Voice Well, why dont you. give it a drink, then? At this point the grocer hroustcJ; the colloquy to a sudden termination with a remark that would be out of ;rface In polite society and therefore unfit for publication. Portland (Or.) Argus.

The first thing which strikes the traveler In China upon his entrance in to any of the many cities of the Celes tial empire is the strings of dried mice which hang from the roofs of the houses suspended by their tails. Just as sausages are hung In front of butcher shops In France. The Chinese hunt these mice with a long, sharp pointed knife, which they plunge Into the animals' throats. Then the mice an suspended by tbe taDs un til the blood has dripped out, when they are skinned, drawn and smoked. Another favortte dish with the Chi nese is dogs' (Wt.

There Is no shutting the door, no cutting yourself off from the outer world, no going up stairs and finally no getting Into bed. You merely lie down on your bod, which, with Its bedding. Is so simple as to be worth describing. The bed is a wooden frame with webbing laced across it, and each bed has a thin cntton mat tress. Over this one sheet Is spread, and two pillows go to each bod. That's 111! Scottish American. It Sllll Worked. "No." she answered coldly, "I can not marry a man who carries a rabbit' foot for luck."

Then he left her former, pausing on ly to laugh the wild, mirthless laugh which was suitable to the occasion. Detroit Journal. Tho Detroit Journal, Peml-weeklyf and the Banner ono year for $1.70. A Penalty' For Ileln Pollt. . It is more ditlicult to be polite in the ity of Hamburg than In any other place In Europe. There the most chiv alrous man has to think twice before giving up his seat in a car to a lady, as he may be turned off the car for po liteness. It seems that the Hamburg trolley cars will seat, according to size, 20 or 28 persons, 10 to 14 on each side. Iu addition four persons are allowed on the front and five persons on the back platform. When the car Is full. the conductor hangs out a sign, "He setzt," which means "occupied," and is absolutely forbidden to take on another passenger until some one gets off the car. Sometimes, while the conductor Is In front collecting fares, a lady will step on the car which Is already "occupied." As there Is no conductor on hand to prevent her, the lady steps Inside, and the gentleman who may offer her a seat conies out and takes his stand on the platform. When the conductor aft er going his rounds returns to his post. he promptly requests the gentleman to step off the car, as he has forfeited his seat and the car Is fully "occupied." Should he refuse to leave the car he Is put off. The policemen on the streets are Instructed to watch the cars sharp ly, and If they find a car carries even one more passenger than Its proper fomplement the conductor Is fined 72 cents, which Is paid to a charity fund of the street railway company. Phila delphia Press. Salt hiuI IIoi-im It ml lull. Some people care for nothing but lemon on raw oysters, but there are others who desire horse radish. Usual ly such folk regard the strongest horse radish as the best, but an experienced vender of the condiment poobpoohs this point of view. "Why should the strong horse radish be considered good?" says he. "It brings tears to your eyes and lifts the top of your head off and makes you want to sneeze. It has no taste what ever. The mild horse radish, that which has stood awhile. Is the best and pleas antest always. "There Is nothing so foolish as to think that the strong, biting kind Is the fresh that Is the reason why It Is preferred to the mild sort for the very stalest, weakest horse radish can be made In 20 minutes strong enough to blow your head off. All you need to do Is to add salt to It. Try this some time. Just take any old horse radish, dump in a spoonful of salt and then notice the difference. I don't know why salt should have such a powerful effect on the stuff, but no doubt a chemist could tell you that." Philadel phia Record. Turned It to Account. A Derbyshire man, accompanied by his wife, happened to be traveling In a train when, near Stafford, a collision occurred. He was well known for his shrewdness In business, and he proved that In the collision his wife received a contusion between the eyes, for which a Jury awarded 50 damages. Some time after the affair had blown over the following confession, or some thing to the like effect, was elicited from the plaintiff In a moment of un guarded conviviality: "Well, you see. when the collision happened t' owld woman and I wur all reet, but when I looked out o' t' car rldge I seed a lot of fellies iu a ter rible state. One sings out: .'By. lad! Ise getten me head cut open. I'll ha twenty peounds for this.' 'Twenty pcounds, ye silly fule?' cries another. 'Ise gotten me shoulder out, and I'll ha' forty peounds for 't.' When I heard this." continued the clever business man. "I Jumpt at t' owld woman straight out and druv my 'cad be tw'en her eyes, and we'se gotten fifty peounds for It." London Answers. A Nnturnl FlrlilKc In Arizona. Natural bridge, on IMne creek, In the northern part of (lila county. Is one of the greatest natural curiosities In the United States, equaling If not sur passing the Natural bridge of Virginia. It spans the creek at a height of about 20O feet, and the walls of the canyon rise above It on either side '700 or Noo feet and on one side form a perpendic ular precipice. The bridge Is of lime formation, and the Inside of the great arch, which Is some 2."0 feet across, Is worn by the water as smooth as though chiseled by the skillful hand of a stonemason. The arch on top Is nearly, If not quite. 400 feet In width, 1,000 feet In length across the canyon and at the thinnest part only six feet throu;,h. About the center of the arch Is a hole large enough to admit the body of a man and through which one can look down Into the crystal pool of water 200 feet below. (I lobe (A. T.)

Certainly they do not possess the power to the extent that popular belief would have It. Stories of the weird and mystic Influ ence of a serpent's eye fall fiat in the face of scientific accuracy. What can be said of snakes, -however. Is that their very appearance paralyzes the victim. It cannot move for fright, for Its faculties are temporarily suspend ed. There Is no fascination about this, however. It Is flight, and fright alone. A Mice Count n. Jack You know when Mabel reject ed me last week I told you my trou bles, and you promised to help me.
