Animal     Disappears     Through   .Pavement   in  City   of   Winnipeg.
A peculiar accident occurred een
Sargenl avenue In Winnipeg lasi Saturday afternoon. A heavily loaded
dray was being driven along the avenue and when making o turn the pave-
ment suddenly gave. way, and one
horse disappeared Into a deep hole.
The astonished driver at once Investigated, and found thai the water main
for flushing ihe sewer had bltrsted,
and the water had washed out a largo
excavation. The horse, which was a
big, heavy animal, was almost out of
sight in the mud and water, and it
was a heavy contract to release hlm.
After Immense labor and In very bad
shape, the horse was gotten out, all
covered with ice. The authorities
were notified, and men were at work
for a long time during the night repairing the bursted main.

fishing in Hood's Canal during the
fore part  of this week.
Miller foughii the animal for fully
nn hour before he coulel bring ihe
l,i-asi to his boat's side. Several of
the beast's teeth are missing as a result of lis snapping an oar. When
hauling the animal into his boat M11-
ler allowed ii to grasp one of his oars.
The teeth of the animal sank in the
hard oak wood until they were buried.
Captain Miller booked the animal
with an ordinary line, and il was only
wilh the greatest difficulty he succeeded In securing lhe monster. This
is the largest woi/ fish ever captured
here. But few are over secured. One
was placed on exhibition at the Lewis
and Clark fair last summer, which
was among the  first  secured here.
The beast appears more like a sea
serpent than anything else, although
its head In a way resembles thai of a
wolf. When stretched at full length
the beast measures (i feet 2 inches,
and weighs twenty-five pounds.

There is a queer story of a Dutch
castaway. In the days when the is-
land of St. Helena was nn unpeopled
wi.st.'. long before the coming of the
great exile who made its name famous,
n Dutch vessel, returning from tht
W.-sl Indies, cast anchor off Its coast.
In a short while a boat was lowered.
The occupants, besides tbe crew, were
a dead ofliccr in a coffin and a down-
c.i.st seaman in irons. This seaman for
gome nITense against discipline had
been condemned to death by the captain, bin in consequence of an appeal
for merry signed by his messmates he
was ordered to be marooned on this
desolate island Instead of being hung
up to the yardnrm. It is probable that
per i even this grace would have been ds-
far | nled bim but for the dead officer, foi
whew" burial the ship put Into harbor,
Tb* grave was dug. the officer buried.
The crew departed and the ship weighed anchor. The Dutchman, on his side,
lost no time. He opened the new mads
grave, dragged out the coffin, tumbled
his dead superior out of lt and carried
lt down to the shore, where, having
launched ' his extemporized boat, he
Jumped in In a trie p. and, using the lid
as a paddle, quickly - thanks to a calm
���overtook the departing ship. He was
taken oa board and pardoned in consid
aratiiti of bis pluck.

A Homemade  laland,
Whal�� Island, the large gunnery establishment for training seamen of the
British royal navy, is not a natural
Island. Years ago it was only a mud
baqk which was uncovered by water
at low tide. When the authorities commenced to make tiie docks in Portsmouth, the earth from the excavations
was deposited from barges upon this
mftd bank, until a small island was
formed, shoyvlng at high water about
the size of a whale's back; hence its
name As the work proceeded tbe island grew rapidly, and a few years
later a railway was constructed on
piles from the dockyard works to the
island, and the earth was. deposited
much more quickly than -when barges
I w<��re used. In 18CO this Island had
Ihdus-  (j^n mg(je R0 iargC that the admiralty
' decided to lay it out as a drill ground.
A small pier was erected and a house
| was built for a warrant officer to live
in and act as caretaker of the Island.
1 At the present time the island is about
' thirty-seven acres in area and provides
i accommodation for over 1.800 men.���

The origin of the expression "windfall," which is used when one wishes
to refer to a streak of good luck, dates
bak to the time ..r William the Con-
qu"ror. At that time It was a criminal
offense to cut timber in the British forests without royal consent. All that
could be gathered for fuel or other
purposes was such limbs as Uie wipd
should happen to break and cast to the
ground On this account the peasants
hailed a great windstorm as a blessing, because it was apt to cast enough
ef "windfalls" for winter firewood.
From this old time forestry custom
come3 the modern application of the
expression. At one time it was decreed
that only such limbs and whole trees
as should fall during the three summer
months could be used as firewood, but
the unjustness of the act was so plainly appareht that no attempt was ever
mil* to enforce it.

Boys  of   No.  2   Hall   Present   William'
Lyle With Chain and
Locket. ,
This morning the boys of No. _ flre
hall, called their forces together in
honor of William Lyle who recently
severed his connection with the bri-
gade. By previous arrangement, Mr.
Lyle was on hand and was asked to
face Captain Reld. The bold captain,
who shines as an orator as well as a
fire tighter, maele kind reference to
Mr. Lyle's four and a half years service among them, nnd testified |io
his efficiency as a man and his value
as a friend and companion. Mr. Lyle
was then presented with a handsome
gold chain and locket, on the latter'
Of which Mr. Lyle's initials were'
tastefully engraved.
Mr. Lyle recently bought out the
Fashion Livery stable and through
Captain Reld. his companions took
this method of formally bidding him'
g.....I bye and wishing him good luck
in his latesl venture.

A man with a curious fondness for
Skullcaps wus the Abbe de St. Martin,
Who, In the seventeenth century, made
himself ridiculous by his vagaries. He
always wore nine of these articles to '
keep off Uie cold anil, furthermore, nine
pairs of stockings. His mode of passing the night was more remarkable
still. He caused to be constructed for
himself a bed of ricks, benenth which
was a furnace, so arranged that he
could regulate it to the degree of
warmth he might require, and his bed
was fitted with only a very small opening, through which the abbe used to
creep when be retireel to rest at night.
Even more ludicrous was the con-
trtvance which the great French mathematician, Fourier, designed and used
for the protection of his health. He incased himself In a species of box, the
Ulterior of which, by some mechanical
means, was kept at the only temperature at which he felt be could live without Inconvenience. While enveloped In
this clumsy affair he was necessarily
confined to one spot, but he provided
means for the freedom of his head and
hands. Even the ills of asthma and
rheumatism, one would have thought,
were preferable to existence under such
circumstances as tills, but the French
mathematician, we must believe, was
of a different opinion.���London Stand-

Thr Tip -f thr  Allium,.r< Tall.
A great delicacy in Florida, according to the Cleveland Lender, is tlie tip
of an alligator's tail. It tastes like
frogs' legs, though a bit more gamy.
Alligator tails are best just after the
riceblrd season. The big alligators
float In the water with only their eyes
showing. When they see a flock of
these fat, juicy little birds they dive
to the bottom. Their loug, wide snout
scoops up some of the loam, and they
tlont to the surface ngain with just the
rich soil showing. The birds think it
is an island. They alight upon it.
When the whole family is there the Uig
reptile turns suddenly. Just as the
hlrds scramble off he opens his mouth
once. Tbey are gone. The birds are neat
little feeders, and the alligator is an
epicure at this time of the year. Tbe
riceblrd diet makes the tip of his tail,
of which he ls most vain, tender and
Vitality of a FroK'a Heart.
There is no living creature, according
to a Philadelphia surgeon, that has a
heart with so much vitality as a frog,
especially the species commonly known
as the water frog. It Is generally
known that the aepiatic frog will survive for months after the hind legs
have been removed. Of course he cannot hop about as he could before losing
his principal means of transit, but hi.
fore legs help him to crawl wherever
he desires to go. When I began to learn
surgery I made a special dissection of
a frog one day. I laid the various part*
of the body on a table and discovered
that life was extinct within a few
bonrg in every organ except the heart.
The heart showed valvular motion for
a day after it had been severed entirely
from the body. I am not aware that
any other creature's heart Is possesses!
of  such  vitality.

The Earth', s.vln   M-.Ho.
Everybody knows that the earth
makes one complete revolution on its
axis once In each twenty-four hours,
but few, however, have any idea of the
high rate of speed ot which such an Immense ball must turn in order to accomplish the feut of making ono revolution iu a day and a night. A graphic
idea of the terrific pace which the old
earth keeps up year after year may be
bail by comparing its speed to that of
n cannon ball tired trom a modern high
pressure gun. The highest velocity ever
attained by such a missile has been estimated at 1,628 feet per second, which
Is equal to n mile In 3 2-10 seconds.
The earth in making one complete
revolution In the short space of twenty-four hours must turn with a velocity
almost exactly eiiuul to that of the
cannon ball, ln short. Its rnto of speed
at the equator is exactly 1,B07 feet per
second, This Is equal to 17 miles a

Before, during and for a time after
the Revolutionary war the courts of
the commonwealth used to fix the
prices of tavern board and liquor, so
when lhe sojourning stranger from
afar struck UlcUmond he could pretty
nearly know what "horse feed and
amount which Nel- breakfast" cost. There was also an
the bout with Me- assize of bread as well as of drink.
The price of bread was regulated by
the price of wheat. A fourpeuny white
loaf, a twopenny white loaf, a four-
penny brick loaf aud a fourpeuny
brown loaf had each to weigh so much,
according as tbey had other ingredients mixed with flour, ln those days
a "Boston biscuit" costing 1 cent bill
to weigh six ounces and two drams
and- so on. The connection between a
loaf of bread aud sixty pounds of
wheat at so much per bushel hu*.
grown beyond tlie grasp of the modern
mind. However, in the old lime in
Virginia the custom of regulating the
price, or, rather, the weight, of a loaf
of bread by the price of the wheat of
which it was made was universal.   So

When Friend. Vr<- Enemies,
"One ot our greatest trcubles is to
prevent patients from bejng killed by
kindness," said a trained nurse in oue
of the public hospitals, "(in visiting
days, when relations or friends are ud-
mltted, we have in many cases to exercise extreme vigilance. The amount of
Improper, even dangerous, food which
one able!...died relative can smuggle in
under cover of a satchel or a voluml
nous cloak is almost Incredible,
"Duly a few weeks ag.. I captured
and curried away from the bed of a
convalescent typhoid case a pasteboard
box containing two big green pickles
and a piece of exceptionally rich cocoa-
nut cake, li was the boy's mother
who brought the dainties, and presumably She did not wish to shorten her
son's days in Ilie land.

lb*-  Wonder* of Trunw����*��ltl(,a.
Tlie word "time" admits of a very
peculiar   arrangement   of   its   letters.
The four letters of the word transposed
; and read backward and forward and
up and down give four perfect English
and Latin words.   It Is said to be the
only word ln our language that will ad-
, mit of to many transpositions and ar-
. rangementa.    Note tbe oddity of tbe
square below:
The above words In English as well
as in Latin are all complete, and tbe
curious part of it is that reading them
backward and forward and up and
down gives the same result that transposing tbe letters in tbe original word
does. Their signification as Latin words
is as follows: Time, fear thou; item,
likewise; tueti, to be measured; emit,
be buys.
Carl... JPartH Abont tlie  K-a.
A very curious fact is the impossibility of moving your eye while examining tlie reflection of that organ In a
mirror. It is really the most movable
part of the face. Yet if you hold your
1 bead fixed aud try' to move your eye
while watching it yon cannot do it-
even tbe one-thousandth of au inch. Of
course if you look at the reflection of
the nose or any other part of your face
your eye must move to see it But the
strange tiling is that the moment you
endeavor to perceive tlie motion the
eye is fixed. This is one of the reasons
why a person's expression as seen by
himself in a glass is quite different
from what it is when seen by others.

"not only our walk, but those ot our
neighbors. I haven't got so superannuated that I can't do half au hour's work
with a snow shovel without iis bunging
ine up."
Mrs. Bowser said no more until they
were half through dinner. Then she observed:
".No one begins cleaniug off his walk
until it stops snowing."
"It was beginning to let up when I
came In," replied Mr. Bowser.
"Aren't you afraid that working with
the snow shovel will give you a lame
"Look here, woman, can't you let a
matter rest? I told you when I first
came In that I was going to clean our
walk. When our walk Is cleaned I am
going to make it my business to find
out why other folks don't clean theirs.
Nothing you can say or do will prevent
"But how can you boss other folks
"Wait and see. There is an ordinance
that says the walks shall be kept clear
of snow. I obey it. I will see that others obey it."
"And raise a row and have your
name in the paper* again."
"I don't care 2 cents for all the papers In tlie United States. If I have to
obey the snow ordinance, other folks
shan't escape. Last winter, when hardly n walk around us was cleared, a
great big fat policeman came along and
threatened to have mo In court because
about n shovelful of snow remained on
ours. Let the discussion end right
It did. He went upstairs nnd got on
nn old suit and then armed himself
With the snow shovel nnd began work.
The storm hod about ceased, and three
or four householders on the other side
of the street were also seizing Ihe opportunity. Mr. Bowser wns a hustler
with the snow shovel, and at the end of
three-quarters of an hour be struck

complimented on his enterprise hy the

grimly silent. When his labors were
finished he stuck his shovel Into the
snow and walked through the gate of

Steps, It wns a new family, nnd he
didn't even know the name. Ills ring

"Well, sir, what Is It?"
"Ton have a sidewalk ont here," replied Mr. Rowser.
"And what of It?"
"It Is covered with a font of snow."
"Any fool can see thai."
"Tho ordinance says you shnll clenh
It off."
"The ordinance be hanged! Who nre
you, sir, thnt you come here nnd tel!

"My name Is Bowser, mil I live next

Inay to clean It off. Tou cither get out

"What? What's that?" shouted the
peppery little man ns he danced around.
'Tou dare to come here nnd threaten
mo? Off my steps and ont of my yard,
you old guy, or I'll give you the boot!"
Mr. Bowser went, lie knew that he
could chew tho little man up In two

"And t.'iat there is a foot of snow on

"Sure, Mike."
"And thnt It Is your duty under the

"Not by a durned sight! If our snow

"We do. It can lie there for the nert

He was told to .jro to that land vhere

waded down tlie steps and out of the
