In captivity the weather frog is kept in a glasn jar or globe, which i.s cover fed at the top with a wire screen.

The weather frog in captivity is fed on flies in summer and in winter on meal Worms. Its food must be alive. Weath er frogs s^ll here at retail for 2J ceLts apiece.

The average distance of discovery of a torpe'do boat by the searchlight from a battleship has been calculated to be Ts 1 yards and the greatest distance 2,000* yards. Thus, taking the distance at which the torpedo can be fired with effect at 500 yards it will be generally found that a torpedo boat will have to cross about 300 yards under fire from the ship she is attacking, and it will take the little craft about half a minute to do this.

"I have been interested in art publications for a number of years and know mo*t of the tiptop salesmen in the country. They handh- books that range from $."0 to ?.•)»» in price and only call on people who figure on certain select lists. Thrse lists are the result of the cullings of years, and, combined, they represent nearly all of the high class book bnyers of the United States. Each publishing house has its own collection uf names, and they are valued highly. "1 call to mind one firm that failed ami went out of business several years ago and its roster of buyers was consid ered its very best asset. It was pur chased for something like on. The class of books handled by the agents to whom I refer would greatly astonish the everyday patrol, of the shops. They are printed in very limited editions, and tvf-ry refinement of mechanical art is lavished on th» ir preparation. Some times the edition numbers only 25 or yo, and as soon as it is off the press the type is taken .down and distributed. The illustrations are frequently wat coi paintings or artists' proofs of etchings, find it is quite common for the vignette letters to be tinted by hand. "Such books are never advertised, but are easily disposed of to the inner circle of rich connoisseurs. The agents who take the orders are the princes of the business.

The StrntfiKem 1» Wblrh Sir Francis Vert- Defeated the Spanish. When Philip II debated the question of coercing with fire and sword the Dutchman, who did not like the taxes which they themselves did not vote, the Duke of Alva counseled violent meas ures, for in his eyes the rebels were only "men of butter." Nevertheless he found that the*e men, so fond of cows and hens, could hold his veterans at bay, finally overcome them in the field, and after *0 years leave poor Spain "a broken backed tiger." Indeed in time of war country folk with baskets of eggs and butter excited no suspicion even to alert seittinels. Taking advantage of this fact, Sir Francis Vere determined to recapture from the Spaniards the Zntphen sconces, or forts, by a stratagem. In 1591 he picked out some lusty and handsome young soldiers and dressed most of them like the Gelderland egg women and the rest as Boers. With bundles of vegeta bles, bankets of eggs and butter, bnt also with daggers and pistols inside their clothes, they were ferried across the river by twos and threes. They sat near the gate of the fort, being already, at the break of day, chatting and ges ticulating, as if in some tremendous argument about the rise or fall of mar ket prices. Then, according to arrangement, Vere sent some cavalry forward, as if ap proaching, and the pretended country people ran in feigned terror toward the fort. The gates were at once thrown open to receive them. They all streamed in, threw off their disguises, and in a few minutes were in possession of the forts of the town, where the gallant Sir Philip Sidney afterward lost his life by being more rash and less shrewd than the veteran Vere.—Harper's Ptuur.

This astute man made himclf so indispensable to the* unfortunate Jose phine and became so intimately ac quainted with the emperor's affairs that he was retained in the service the imperial family when Josephine was superseded iy Sialic Louise.
