His marked abil ity as a magician caused the opera house to be crowded every evening. One Teat In particulBr interested- fa is audience. Lying prone upon bis back, he would toss a long, light table back ward and forward in all conceivable positions to the time of lively music, his tiny feet keeping the table perfect ly balanced. It was Saturday eveuiug. Satsmna Matsuki had been performing for an hour. He had astonished his audience •\vlth a score of wonderllul achieve ments, but as yet he had not periorin ed with the table resting oil his leety Matsuki passed into one of the dress ing rooms to change his costume. Scarcely had he closed the door when he heard a sound that made his heart stand still for a moment— a crackling and a hissing—and the next instant a long tongue of tlame leaped from the stairway, enveloping a window. Oth ers in the rear of the stage discovered tJie flames at the same instant, and a fierce battle was begun between the attaches of the theater and the raging Are. For one brief instant Matsuki stood irresolute. The fire was confined within the dressing room of the right wing, and as yet no one In the audi ence had an inkling of the grave dan ger that threatened the house: Those lighting the llumes knew that a terrible panic would ensue the moment that the spectators realized the danger. Matsuki understood the situation,, too, and in that moment of hesitation he saw the part that he must act. Matsuki was before his audience. He had placed the rugs hastily in posi tion that he might rest easily. A mo ment later and the orchestra com menced playing. Matsuki had. balanc ed the table and was, gracefully danc ing it back and forth, keeping perfect time with his dainty feet. Shortly the measure of the music was quickened, and he was obliged to move more quickly. At one time the table would be at an angle of forty-five degrees and again at ninety degrees and the next moment perfectly perpendicular. The long table seemed fairly alive. Meanwhile those lighting the fire had worked bravely, and success was crowning their efforts, They heard the music of the orchestra, and they knew that Matsuki was doing his part to hold the attention of the people. A few moments more and all danger of a stampede would be past. "Fire!" Some one had seen'-"a puff of smoke issue from the right wing of the stage. "Ye ar, Aire!" And Matsuki sent the table nearly to the ceiling turning a complete somersault in its flight. The audience shouted with delight. For twenty minutes Matsuki had been in constant activity. The veins stood out upon liis arms and temples likri whipcords. "Fire!" Another had noticed a puff of smoke. "Ye-ar, flire!" And again was the ta ble, hurled aloft and caught, again with the same dexterity. The conductor of the orchestra knew not what it all meant. At first he thought that Matsuki had gone mad. Never before had he dared so much. If lie was mad, surely no one could deny his astonishing skill. A moment later the stage manager walked across the stage and whisper ed something to Matsuki, at the same time placing the table on the floor. Matsuki was unable to rise. Attend ants lifted the brave fellow and. car ried him behind the scenes. Very shortly' the manager returned, and When he spoke ljiis voice was sadly bi-oken. "Ladies and gentieiseji." said he, passing his hand across his ^fesahead, "I have no dqubt that you have greai= ly enjoyed Satsuma Matsuki's perform ance this evening. He has well merit ed your gfenerous applause, more, per-, haps, than you imagine. I have to in form yon that Satsuma Matsuki alone has stood between you and death for thefpflst twenty minutes pr more. The danger Is past now, and you are liberty to leave this building, but permit me to say before you depart that our friend Matsuki bas lost bis entire magician's, outfit, whicb cost him 'over a thousand dollars. Fire has completely destroy ed bis property. I leave it with ydu tot dp what is right, and those who de sire to sho\y their gratitude for what Matsuki has done this evening can Ueet me here on the platform," There was no hesitation. A long line of men iand women was quickly formed, and for an hour the manager received the contributions of those who wished to show their gratitude, Whei\:i the amount was counted, pledges and all, something over. $1,500 was found.

Queer Raee That Uvea Near the Chi nese Prefecture of ClilenchaiiK* Adjoining the Chinese prefecture Of Chieuchang is a deep gully barred by a river which no Chinaman is permit ted to pass until he finds bail for his good conduct in Lolodom. The LoioS are a slim, well made, muscular race with ovai reddish brown faces, high cheek bones and pointed chins, from which the- beard lias been carefully plucked. They are far taller than the Chinese and indeed than any European race, but their marked pe culiarity is the horn Every male adult gathers his hair in a knot over liis forehead and then twists it up in a cotton cloth so that it resembles the horu of a unicorn. This horn is considered sacred, and even if a Lolo settles in Chinese terri tory and grows a pigtail he still pre serves liis horn. The Lolo man's prin cipal garment is a wide s'eeveless man tle of red or black felt tied about the neck and descending almost to the heels. The trousers are of Chinese cotton with felt bandages. No shoes are worn, but a conical hat of woven bamboo covered with felt furnishes a head covering as well as an umbrella. The Chinese divide the Loios into two classes, which they call respective ly "Black Bones'' and "White Bones," tile first being the nobles and the latter their vassals and retainers. There is also a third class of captive Chinese and their descendants, called "Wutssu," practically slaves, who are tattooed on the forehead with the mark of their tribe. The Lolos never marry except in their own-tribes, captive Chinese wom en being, given to their bondsmen. The marriage of a Black Bone Is a time of great festivities and many banquets. The betrothal is-celebrated and ratified by the present of the husband to the bride's family of a pig'and three ves sels of wine. On the wedding morn the bride is richly-dressed with many ornaments. She is expected to weep profusely, whether she feels so inclined or not. In the midst ol' her tears the groom's relatives and friends dash in, seize the bride, the best: man carries her out of doors on liis shoulders, she is clapped on a horse and hurried off to her new home. Here she finds horses, cattle and sheep, provided by the groom's family, while her own people send clothes, ornaments and corn. Women occupy a high position among the Lo los, and a woman chief is not unknown among the tribes.—New York Herald. POINTED PARAGRAPHS. When you die, you will die as dead as anybody. We all have enough to be cross about. Still, it Isn't a good idea to show it. People like to be called enthusiastic, but how they hate to be called "gush ing." The only difference between the mod ern family row and that of the older days is that the modern one isn't as big a family. The "good fellow" you slap on the back and tell your troubles to may seeia good natured, but he complains of you to his wife.

The Arab Steed. An Arab steed of pure breed would probably be outpaced in a race by an English thoroughbred, but in oilier re spects it outshines its western rival.
