Hear Admiral Stephen B. Luce is credited with a good joke upon his own name. As a young man he was extremely popular with the smart set at Newport. On the same ship with him was a stern disciplinarian, ever on the lookout for some dere liction of duty. One evening Luce, after a round of pleasures, met this martinet, who remarked sharply: •‘Mr. Luce, you’re tight.” •‘Pardon me, sir,” was the quick retort—“if Stephen B. Luce, how can he be tight?”—New York Trib une. Servian Army Drums. A curious custom connected with the Servian army is the manner in which most of the regiments carry the big drum. It is not, as in most countries, slung in front of the man who plays it. but is placed upon a small two wheeled cart drawn by a large dog. which has been so trained that it keeps its place even through the longest and most 'tediouss marches. The drummer takes up a position behind the cart and per forms on the instrument as it moves along.—London Answers.

When the feeling comes over tia which always precedes a sneeze all we have to do is to lay our finger across the upper lip, directly be neath the nose, and press firmly upon the lip for a fevv seconds. The same result can he obtained by lay ing the finger across the lower lip, just above the chin, and pressing rather firmly for a few moments. Either of these acts will not at tract the attention of any person, and in almost every instance the person will be saved the annoyance | of disturbing the entire audience. | The physiological reason for this j seemingly curious interference in ; nature is quite interesting, although j but few slop to reason why in this j as in many other things. The internal surface of the nasal ! passages is covered by a very deli- j rate and sensitive mucous mem- j brane. The surface is quite exten- j sive, following as it does all the i inequalities produced by tbe curved j spongy bones of tbe nose. Only in : the upper portion is tbe seat of j smell, as that part only receives j branches from the first pair of cranial nerves or tbe nerve known i as the olfactory nerve,.which is the | one of smell. The distribution of j this nerve in the form of an in- ' tricate network is upon the two up- i per spongy bones. The olfactory nerve itself does j not issue from the skull, but rests j upon a thin facial bone which ! separates it from tin* cavity of the j nose, and tbe many branches which j proceed from it pass through this | bone by means of numerous small | openings. Tbe many nerves which i ramify over tbe lower portions of j tbe delicate nasal membranes and ; which endow it with sensibility to ; touch and pain are branches of j what is known as the fifth pair of ; nerves. An irritation from several causes ( applied to the parts where this nerve is distributed occasions snecz- ; ing, which is a spasmodic eontrac- I tion of the diaphragm, which re- j suits in the expulsion of the irritat- j ing cause. The pressure described above simply arrests the irritation, and the sensation dies without the outburst of air which produces the unpleasant sound. It is like arrest ing a current of electricity by cross ed wires or some outside influence. There arc times when this meth od does not work, but they are rare and generally due to the fact that the pressure is not applied soon enough. Nearly every one has a warning of several moments that lie is about to sneeze. If the pres sure is instantly applied the sneeze is generally suppressed; - otherwise it may he too late. This does not mean that every sneeze should be suppressed. Only do this when in church or theater or ! some Mich place. To sneeze aside i from the sneeze caused by a cold is I natural and all'ords a relief to the | nasal passages from dust.—Clevo | land Plain llcaler. Nature Was Improving. James A. McNeill Whistler as tounded many people by the egotism he frequently displayed in his con versation, but those who knew the artist best realized that many of his conceited remarks were inspired by a love of mischief rather than by vanity. Herq is an example: At a house party an effusive lady approached the artist. “Oh," Mr, Whistler,” she said, “I have just been up the river, and it reminded me so much of vour pic tures!” “Indeed!” W'histler replied calm ly. “Then nature is looking up.” Not a Recommendation, “Have yon any objection to my marrying your daughter?” “No,” replied Mr. Cumrox. “To be candid, I’ve taken quite a liking to you.” “Then I may count on you as a friend ?” . “I shouldn’t do anything like that if I were you. If you introduce yourself as a friend of mine mother and the girls will take it for granted that you haven’t any social standing whatever.”—Washington Star, Polo. Polo is of eastern origin and has been a favorite pastime in Persia, Tartary and the frontiers of India from prehistoric times. The name of the game varies with the district, and the rules are not the same op minor points, though they are sub stantially alike on the main issues. China and Japan also have a game closely resembling the Persian sport. Make* Him Mark Time. “His wife is a business woman, all right.” “What makes you say that?” “She’s installed a time clock in the hall, and he has to punch it when he goes out nights and when he gets back.”—T-os Angeles Tiroes.
