OF  ���������Lord of the Manor of Ortford Seizes  Astonished English "Vassal's" Best  Horse as Henot���������Action Perfecily  Legal ��������� Recent Insistance Upon  Rights Shows Need of Clean Sweep  of     Survivals    of     Ancient    Land  ���������     System.  *  *W*e need of  some  act  which    will  make a clean swrep of the preposterous relics of the feudal system of land  tenure   which   still   survive   in   many  parts  of England,, has  been strikingly  ���������shown by a case- which has just come  'to light near Sevenoaks in Kont. There  ��������� resides Earl Amherst, who, among his  other hereditary claims  to distinction,  Coasts that of being lord of the manor  of Ortford, Withinfcthe borders of the  ��������� domain thus designated Herbert Couldrey took up his abode  some months  ago,  totally unaware t'hat thereby he  incurred any obligations as a vassal of  the lord of the manor.  The other day one of the earl's deputy stewards called upon Mr. Couldroy,  and, seeing a horse and trap standing  outside the house, asked Mr. Couldrey  il the horse was his. On being answered in the affirmative, the deputy  ���������steward out some hairs from the  ���������horse's mane, and after depositing them  Sn his pocket, placed a hand on the  '."horse's shoulder, accompanying the action with the words, "This horse is  -now the property of Lord Amherst."  !        Liko Comic Opera,  But Legal.  In the twentieth century.this appears  more'Tike a bit of fooling from a COmic  opera than a valid process, but, thanks  to the medieval laws that still remain  unrepealed, the deputy steward's fantastic performance actually made Earl  Amherst the owner of Mr. Couldrey's  ;jsleed. However, the deputy steward  ���������only took away the hairs that he had  ���������cut from the mane, the major portion  of his lordship's newly appropriated  property, which required stabling and  feeding, being left with Mr. Couldrey.  ��������� It was explained to the latter that  (fche earl, being a generous man, did not  wish to push his rights ������to their legal  limits and would therefore permit Mr.  Couldrey to redeem the horse. The  price of the redemption was subsequently fixed at $57.50���������albout one-third  of its  real  value���������which  shows    that  ���������u'liusauara   Liuaraa, Y*nu   was  severely  wounded  at  Inkerman.  He is,  among other things,  a Freemason of high distinction, and has been .  pro-grand master of England for tha  last  eight years.   The  first  Lord  Am- j  herst  was   commander-in-chief  of   the i  British  army  in North  America  from  175S   to   1764,   and   was    subsequently  made commander of the whe/.e army.  Earl Amherst has been twice married,  but has had no children by either wife.  His heir presumotive is his brother, tha  Hon.   and  Rev. Percy   Amherst,    who  took orders more than forty years ago,  but has done no clerical work since h������  Ka������ bald a "cinch" on the Deeragr  Saving Niagara.  The question as to whether Niagara  should be used solely as a source ot  mechanical power or be preserved as  a beautiful and wonderful natural '/en*  ture has come up iu our day for permanent decision. There are some minds  that have decided for themselves in favor of the former proposition, but they  seem fortunately to be in a minority  both in Canada and in the United  States. Niagara is to be preserved  both in what have been called its "little loveliness" and in its grandeurs.  America is "practical.? It has allowed its forests to be dangerously diminished, it has allowed Niagara to be  seriously threatened, but American  serjtiment when once aroused is Irresistible, and American sentiment has  declared iu favor of Niagara as Niagara.���������Century.  Collecting Fares In Montreal.  The manner of collecting the fare on  street cars iri Montreal is decidedly  unique. Under no circumstances can  the conductor touch the fare, which  roj^t.vJ>e"deposItecl by the passenger in  a 'fafe box, which is presented as the  passenger enters the door of the car.  The conductor will make change or sell  tickets, but the passenger deposits the  fare, whichever it may be, in the bos.  The coin or ticket does not fall until  the conductor presses a button.. This  gives opportunity to see if the amount  in correct and the coin genuine. When  once the coin drops it cannot be removed except in the company's office.  After the cashiers count the day's receipts the count is checked by weighing  tbe different coins and also the tickets.

ISarl Amherst is a much more liberal  man   than his   feudal   ancestors,  who  were  wont to  exact everything    they  -could clalnv from  their vassals.  ^Finding there was no other method  'xtsy which he could recover the horse,  Mr. Couldrey bought it back at the  price stipulated. Then, In order to call  public attention to the case, he brought  euit against the earl for the keep of the  Jhorse during the two weeks that tha  settlement of the matter was pending  "'Kor, In accordance with the absurd  law under which  it had been seized,  Y'tfor these two weeks the horse was un-  questionably the property of Earl Am-  - Jierst.  Publlo Opinion With "Vassal."  t^H ���������''it8 ipodern sort of procedure  was not at all in accordance with feudal  notions, and the Sevonoaks judge, before whom the suit was tried, promptly gave his decision against the audacious vassal.

The uarrative in all its unreasonableness is found in tlie story ot  om chung, which is the*name tho Chinese quail is known by when at home  in the Flowery Kingdom. Celestial authorities on bird lore declare that no  specimen of om chung was ever known  to live a year; that thoy do not lay  eggs, as all other known species of  birds do, and, finally, that their progenitor is a slimy, four jointed worm,  which has a red head and a sting on  the end of Its tail. This queer soacoast  worm, according to the curious legend  of om chung, lays 100 eggs annually.  Fifty of theso become fish and the other fifty are worms of the same species  as the parent. The fish that has come  Tito Minutes Under Water Sufficient  to Cause Fatal Re*_lts.  Drowning is a quicker death than  most people suppose. Insensibility is  said to begin in about one minute, and  fatal unconsciousness generally supervenes in the neighborhood of two.  Even .practiced divers cannot remain  under water more than a minute and a  half, and it is almost fatal to remain beneath the surface longer than tbat.  At Navarino, where there are many  expert divers who plunge into the sea  after sponges, hot one was found who  could remain under water for two  minutes. In the Red sea the Arab  divers generally remain down one and  a quarter minutes, while at Ceylon the  pearl fishers can seldom stay below  for even one minute. There is a case  on record at Falmouth, England, where  a diver had descended eighty feet and  on giving the signal was drawn up  slowly, so it was two minutes before  he reached the surface. Blood ran  from his ears and uose, and he was insensible.   He died without speaking.  Insensibility, however, does, not always involve death, for ln many cases  a person may be resuscitated by the  .,use,-of-energe_tic measures. The bring-  ing to of people who have aeon under  water for five consecutive minutes, however, Is considered! doubtful by physicians. There have been extraordinary cases related, nevertheless,  where persons have been brought back  to life after having been submerged  for fifteen or twenty minutes, but it ia  probable tbat they have come to the  surface again and again during that  time.  OPEN AIR SILAGE.  Corn and Sorghum Made Into Silas**  In the Stack.  We have used the silage cured In  open air. Many stacks of coarse sorghum hay are so imperfectly cured  that without intending it silage or  "brown hey" Is fed from these stacks  Instead of dry hay. We hare had  success with heavy growing sorghum  m this case, says Farm and Ranch, by  letting it wilt after cutting and then  laying straight in long piles and covering tbese with earth so that rain and  air were excluded from the top. The  sides will dry out and mold for a  short distance inside the pile, but there  is no material loss. There are also  more systematic methods of putting up  outdoor silos.  Frame For Open Air Silo.  An open framework of 1 by 4 stuff  Is built in sections to inclose temporarily the stack of silage and give shape  to it This silage is usually cut up into  lengths of one to- two inches and elevated into these skeleton walls when  it is. tramped down continually. Air  is virtually excluded during the heating process following this storage (?)  _o������^grfien������stuf!!JjaJth^^������M^l������uJ^ISSSi  lsmglast..  'Most people take isinglass to he a  mineral production, but such is not the  case. Isinglass is prepared from the  air bladders of giant sturgeons, a species of fish which inhabit the Caspian  sea and its tributary rivers. Ibese fish  average twenty-five feet in length, and  it is said to take the bladders of seventeen good sized ones to make three  pounds of glass.  Stereotyping.  The flrst attempt at stereotyping in  America was made in 1775 by Benjamin Mecom, a printer at Philadelphia.  Previous to this time the Dutch had  stereotyped a prayer book in 1771.  into exlstenco ln this curious manner  also lays 100 eggs n year. Fifty of  these become wator denizens after the  image of thoir parent, and tho others  Schoolboy Anevfrers.  Here are some assertions from compositions by American schoolboys:  "Franklin's father was a tallow chandelier." "The climate of North America  Is embracing." "This song is in the key  of B flap." "There aro five bowels-a, e,  I, o and u." "The snow is painting the  town white." "He lived in Cambridge  pork." "Man is in the muscular gender because lt denotes a male." "They  went to tho foolish (Polish) church."  Question: "What is geography?"   An-  become birds of tho famed om chung  ������wer: "Geography Is round, like a ball."  family.  Theso om ehungs, or Chinese  quails, never breed, and are only  brought Into oxlstwice ns above related.  We glvo tho abovo not ns a literal fact,  but as a specimen of tbo Chinese idea  ot evolution.  A om.  When e-mail measures are not eon--  venlont lt Is profitable to know that  eight tablespoonfuls make ono glii.  perfectly provided a tarpaulin or other  rain proof cover is provided when rain  is feared. Near Beeville, in south Texas, where we havo seen the crops of  both corn and sorghum thus stored, no  covering was used. In ten days after  cutting and fitting the skeleton walls  some twenty-two l'oet ln height were  removed and used again a short distance away for forming another stack  of silage. The quality of the silage is  most excellent.  Tha English Silage Stacks.  In England silage stacks have been  reduced to a nice system by a series  of weights and levers which compress  the feed much more tightly than tbe  mere weight of the green stuff can do.  This silage is food for horses and  mules, but is better for cattle.  Ho Thoroagbfave,  Characteristic of the readiness of the  Celt is a reply noted In "Leaves From  the Diary of Henry Grovllle."  "I cannot get over your nose," said a  frank American woman to the Irish  novelist, Colley Grattan, whose nose  was flattened.  "No wonder you can't," be retorted,  ���������'for the bridge Is broken."  DEAFNESS CANNOT BE CURED.  by local applications, as they cannot  reach the diseased portion of the ear.  There ls only one way to cure deafness,  and that is by constitutional remedies.  Deafness is caused by an inflamed condition of the mucous lining of the Eustachian Tube. When this tube is inflamed  inflammation can be taken out and this  hearing, and when it is entirely closed,  Deafness is the result, and unless the  inflammation can be taken out and this  tube restored to its normal condition,  hearing will be destroyed forever; nine  cases out of ten are caused by Catarrh,  which is nothing but an inflamed condition of the mucous surfaces.  , We will give One Hundred Dollars for  any case of Deafness (caused by Catarrh)  that cannot be cured by Hall's Catarrh  ~Gurer���������Send���������for^-eirculars-f reer��������� j���������n���������  F.

There was a little quaver in his voice.  We all looked at him in silence. Uncle  Eb drew out his wallet with trembling  hands, his fine old face lit with a deep  eiwotion. David looked up at bim as if  he wondered what joke was coming  until he saw his excitement.  "Here's   twenty   thousan'   dollars,"  "I give,ye hack yer son Nehemiah."  said Uncle Eb, "a reel, genuwine bank  check, jist as good as gold. Here 'tis!

What does this  mean?" be asked.  " 'At the Lord pays his debts," said  Uncle Eb. "Head it."  Hope had lighted the lamp.  David rose and put on his spectacles.  One eyebrow had lifted above the level  of the other. He held the check to the  lamp light. Elizabeth stood at his elbow.  "Why, mother!" said he. "Is this  from our boy? From Nehemiah? Why,  Nehemiah Is dead!" he added, looking  over his spectacles at Uncle Eb.  "Nehemiah is uot dead," said tho latter.  "Nehemiah not dead!" he repeated,  looking down at the draft,  Ihey turned It in the light, reading  over and ovor again the happy tidings  pinned to ono corner of It.

Syracuse calls itself tbe capital of the  south, but it has no cause to dispute  pride of place with Palermo. The metropolitan city is superior in population, wealth, and much else,' but it is deficient in what its ancient and glorious  rival has in such abundance. For Syracuse has the supreme charm of Greece  In a way that no other city except Athens has. Not even in Corinth, nowhere  ln Hellas from Messana or Sparta in  the south to Thebes in the north, is  there any Hellenic town to compare  with "the queen of Sicily." As a sanctuary, Delphi is far more impressive  than anything in Sicily, as a national  meeting place Olympia has no rival,  but nowhere except at Athens is a  Greek city to be seen today which has  the proud record of the marvelous metropolis, of the Sicilian Greeks, a city  as great in power and wealth and  beauty as Athena herself, and victor  at last in the long and fatal rivalry  which indirectly involved the passing  of the Hellenistic dominion of all the  lands washed by the Ionian and Mediterranean seas.���������Century.  Barefooted Waiting Molds In Japan.  Unless there are ladies among the  guests the wife, a_nd-daughters���������of_ the  host do not appear at dinner in Japan.  Before the meal begins It is customary  for them to bring small cups of tea  and dainty confectionery, when they  take their survey of the party. If gentlemen only are present the Japanese  hostess disappears after the greeting  is over and does not return until tlie  guests are taking their departure. At  a signal from tlie host barefooted waiting maids, dressed in graceful and prettily tinted kimonos, bring in lacquer  tray, bearing tiny covered bowls. Before setting the trays on the table tlio  maids sink gracefully to their knees  and bond forward till their foreheads  touch the floor. Then they 'servo dinner,   which  is   of several   courses.

Indiana bas tbe unique distinction of  having voted for president before it  became a member of the family of  states. In June, 1816, Indiana adopted  a state constitution, but was not admitted to the Union until Dec. ll. In  the meantime, on Nov. 4, the first legislature met at Corydon. Indianans  have been precocious from the first,  and the members of the legislature had  no thought of letting a little matter  like the fact that what they called the  state was not really a state interfere  with their voting for James Monroe  and Daniel D. Tompkins, for president  and vice president respectively As the  Indianapolis News, which tells ythe  story, puts it Indiana politicians wanted to get in on the ground floor  On Nov 11, exactly a month before  Indiana was admitted to the Union, the  legislature adopted a joint resolution,  "That it is expedient to provide at this  time for the election of three electors  to vote for president and vice presideut  of the United States of America at the-  ensuing presidential election." This  was approved by the governor, and two  days later Jesse S. Holman, General  Joseph Bartholomew and Thomas H.  Blake were chosen electors by the legislature, this being the method in all  the states at that time. While these  electors were chosen before the state  was admitted their vote was not cast  until a few days after the admission.  Indiana's right to vote was disputed  when the national house and senate  met to open and count the votes, but  the new state finally won the decision.  MACKEREL SKIES.

The mackerel sky comes from the  same causes as all the cirrus clouds, so  called from the beautiful curl their  fragments often assume, such as  "mackerel skies," "mares' tails" and  "cats' tails." Meteorologists are not  agreed as to the cause, there being two  explanations.  It has been suggested that these cirrus clouds are the heads of columns of  vapor rising from the earth aiid precipitated as soon as they attain a certain elevation, rarely less than three  miles above the earth (15,840 feet) and  ToftetnflWW^iTTOl-eT^  feet). If this be so the visible cloud  forms the capital of an invisible pillar  of saturated air.  The second explanation ls that they  are caused In the higher regions of the  atmosphere by the meeting of two currents of air of different water bearing  capacity, causing them to form into  parallel bands, each belt being composed of light, airy fragments, slightly  altered In appearance according to a  slight difference in conditions under  which thoy are formed. It haB been  supposed that such clouds are composed of particles of snow.  It might be added that they occur in  systems, long ranks of them extending  in one direction for vast distances and  being occasionally crossed by other  systems at other but also extreme altitudes.       Ths Chained tibrcry,  Wtm-bourno, Ireland, is noted for  many things, but Us famous chained  library is perhaps the most notable of  its curiosities. The library possesses  unique interest as being one of the  earliest attempts to disseminate knowledge among the people, The collection  was made accessible to the people in  1680 and numbers some two hundred  volumes, The scarcity of books and the  value of tho colleotion are both Indicated in tho care taken for their preservation and especially against loss of  such treasures by theft, By means of  chains and rods ths books were securely  fastened to the shelves and these  chains, it Is rathor surprising to learn,  were not renewed until 1867, when the  library fittings were repaired. Among  the interesting works of the collection  is a copy of ths flrst edition of Sir Wal*  ter Raleigh's "History ot ths World,"  1614. It has suffered from fire end tradition says that Mathew Prior was re*  sponsible for Its present condition, the  etory being that he fell asleep when  reading It once upon a time and the  pages were burned by his candle, It  has been neatly repaired and its mis*  hap now adds to Its interest. The oldest volume in the library ts a fins old  eopy in vellum of "Reglnum Anlnna*  rum.M It Is In manuscript e-ad bears  tbe date 1141.  QUAINT PRESENTS,  Odd Wedding: Gifts That Havt Been  Received by Celebrities.  Celebrities are often the recipients of  quaint presents. For instance, on the  marriage of Queen Victoria the farmers of Bast and West Pennard, Somersetshire, wishing to show their loyalty,  manufactured from the milk of 750  cows an immense cheese cine feet in  circumference. The gift was graciously accepted and was stored at Buckingham palace, where it would undoubtedly have found its way to the  royal table had not its donors wished  to exhibit it as an advertisement.  Their request was granted, but after  it had been exhibited aud the makers  would have returned it her majesty  signified that owing to tho. altered conditions she could not accept it as a  gift.  An equally homely gift was made to  the late King Charles of Wurttemburg  on the morning of his marriage to  Princess Olga of Russia. A peasant  woman sent him a pair of trousers of  her own design, with a note expressing  the hope that they might be found a  better cut and fit than those which she  had last had the honor of seeing his  majesty wear.  The Italian singer, SIgnor Mario, inspired a hopeless passion in the hearts  of so many women that at the time of  his wedding some of this affection  found expression in various strange  gifts. One was in the shape of a  cushion stuffed with tresses from the  heads of many of his hopeless admirers. Another was from a lady in Munich who had had one of her teeth set  In a scarfpin surrounded with pearls  and emeralds. In an accompanying  note she expressed the hope that by  sometimes wearing the gift he might  be reminded of his unknown worshiper  THE FIRST SPECTACLES.  They  In   the  Were   Made   In   Italy  Thirteenth Centnry.  Spectacles were invented late in the  thirteenth century. The use of glass  to aid the sight of defective eyes is,  however, much older. Nero looked  through a concave glass in watching  the gladiatorial games, and many other  historical men or his day were dependent on similar devices for lengthening  their sight.  Till the latter part of the thirteenth  centnry only the single glass was in  use. in 1290 the double glass was invented, and in the fourteenth century  spectacles were used quite frequently  by the very wealthy and high born, although they were still so scarce tbat  they were bequeathed in will with all  the elaborate care that marked the disposition of a feudal estate. The first  spectacles were made in Italy.  Somewhat later the manufacture of  cheaper glasses sprang up in Holland,  and It spread late in the fourteenth  century to Germany, Nuremberg and  Rathenow acquired fame for their  glasses between 1490 and 1500.  For many years glasses were used  only as a means of aiding bad eyes, until the fashion of wearing merely for  tho sake of wearing them sprang up in  Spain. It spread rapidly to the rest of  tho continent and brought about tho  transformation of the old thirteenth  contury spectacles Into eyeglasses and  eventually into tho monocle.

"What ls that, Mary?" Mr. Atkins  laid down his paper with an ill suppressed sigh and turned to his wife,  who was busily sewing on the opposite  tide of the table.  "There yoi are again, John," returned Mrs. Atkins impatiently. "Frowning like a thunder cloud just because I  dared to interrupt your reading that  evening paper. It's always the same  ' thing. You have become as settled in  your ways as If you were sixty. Now,  I think it is dreadful to let ourselves  get that way wben we've only been  married fifteen years."  "What would you suggest, dear?"  asked her husband, feeling that the  only possible hope he had ot resuming  bis paper lay In mild methods. "I have  been under the impression that we  Were rather a model couple."  "Why, we^ve lost all the romance of  life," retorted his wife. "When we first  met, and evgn after we were married,  we used to take nice long walks and  drives or go to the {beater often. Now  we don't do anything but sit around in  the evenings, you reading your paper  and I sewing until bedtime. It is not  right"  Mr. Atkihs did not reply, neither did  he resume his paper. His wife's remarks had awakened memories of  pleasant days of long ago, yet, pleasant as those days had been, the present  life suited him better. He loved his  home. To him it was the oasis where  he could come after a Jtrenuous day in  the desert of business life. The quiet  ���������moke and the evening paper after  Bupper, when the children were snug  ln bed, were sources of keen enjoyment Being a just man, however, he  began to consider the other side of the  question. His wife had strenuous days,  too, in the home, yet evenings brought  no change to her, as it did to him. No  wonder sbe yearned for the romance of  ��������� former~days:H5he-must"have-some"rei-  lief from the dull monotony of home  life, and he resolved to see to it.  Accordingly the next morning Mr.  Atkins purchased tickets for the night  performance at the theater. Mrs. Atkins just bubbled over with joy at the  IBB ClitJJfO TO HBlt HtJBBAND'H ARM 11  IHEY W1LEED DOWN TUB STREET.  prospect and became quite girlish as  ihe prepared for the unusual occasion.  She clung to ber husband's arm as tboy  walked down tbo street and nestled  close to bim ln the car. Tho fifteen  years of married life were forgotten.  Tbe four little Atkinses, slumbering  peacefully at borne, faded away for the  first time tn tbeir short lives from  tbelr mother's thoughts. Once again  iwbs was a blushing girl seated by bor  lover's state.  Tbe flrst act of tbe play was finished,  and Mrs. Atkins still dreamed. Tben  ������ horrible thought forced Itself upon  Her. In ber burry to dress she bad forgotten to give Tommy bis medicine.  Tbe boy bad been sick, and tbe doctor  bad told ber on no accourt to fail to  glvo tbe usual dose at night This waa  enough.

Mrs. Atkins b-wim������ once more  tbe mother and tho housewife. Upon  the pica of a hoitdnoho *h������ whUpered  her winh to return borne, and her bus-  baud, weary of tbe play and hungry  for bit cigar and a glance at tbe evening jttper, willingly accomconl-Ml her  xae foiiovring arcernoon, In pursuance of his plan, Mr. Atkins hired a  horse and buggy to take his wife out  for a drive. Mrs. Atkins, having been  previously advised of the arrangement,  had so provided for her household duties and the care of the children that  no perturbation of mind could possibly arise on those scores. With a  buoyant heart she got into the buggy and they drove to tbe park. Mrs.  Atkins felt that nothing could possibly  mar the enjoyment of this occasion.  but she again reckoned without her  bost Time, those fifteen years, had  thenge* ****��������� from a slonder trlrl to a  rather stout woman, and John bad like*  wise developed into a very corpulent  person.  The seat of the buggy was too small  for the full enjoyment of the trip. Indeed, it soon became simply torture to  Mrs. Atkins as they jolted over some  rough places.  "John, I can't stand this any longer,"  she groaned as tbe buggy went over a  bowlder lying in the road on her husband's side, and his weight pressed her  against the side bar of tbe vehicle so  forcibly that she felt sure ber hip was  dislocated.  "It's oretty rough," assented Mr. At  Kins, who was equally as uncomfortable. "Let me slip back, and you sit  on the edge of the seat That'll give  us more room."  , This arrangement did fairly well for  a time until Mrs. Atkins, sitting bolt  upright, without any support for her  back, began to feel the effects of her  strained position. Her husband, thinking only of the days of long ago, placed  his disengaged arm around her waist  to support ber, but his wife decidedly  objected.  "It is broad daylight John," she demurred. "What would people think If  they 6aw us driving in tbe park in such  away? You forget we are old married  people."  "That's what I thought you wanted  to forget, Mary," observed her husband, rather relishing the turn affairs  had taken.  "So I do," returned Mrs. Atkins severely, "but* you know I never allowed  you to put your arm around me when  any one was present. I think we had  better go home."  As they turned into tbe road that led  homeward they noticed a mass of dark  clouds that had gathered In the west  Mr. Atkins applied tbe vvhip freely,  -but4he^live������yman-bad-i������]^tediarhqrse.  suitable for the use of a middle aged  couple, and all the efforts at fast driving were in vain. The big drops began  to fall, and then the storm broke in all  its fury. Tbey were a mile away from  shelter, and Mrs. Atkins would not let  her husband drive beneath the overhanging branches of a tree for fear of  lightning.' The rubber iaprobe and the  Bide and back curtains, bad been forgotten by the man wbo harnessed up  the team. The result was unpleasant.  A limp, disconsolate couple alighted at  the Atkins home just as the storm  broke and the sun streamed forth  again.  "Mary," said Mr. Atkins the next  morning at tho breakfast table, "we've  tried tho theater and tbo driving, but  tbey didn't seem to bring as keen enjoyment as tbey did in years past.  This evening we'll tako a nice, long  walk and seo how that works,"  "Indeed wo won't," declared his wife  stifling a groan as a twinge of rheumatism mado its presonco known.  "I've bad enough, thank you, and, in  future, Intend to conduct myself as a  woman of forty should do. No moro  playing I'm youug and giddy again for  me."  "Thank God," returned Mr, Atkins,  fervently and piously.  "I'm pretty stiff myself from that  ducking I got last night, but I was determined to got romantic again It I  could."

Some Hint* That -Will Help to Make  the Work Successful.  Freshening up chairs to harmonize  with rooms after house cleaning is  rather expensive if they be sent to an  upholsterer, yet a room will not be  pleasing if a faded, dingy chair be  placed before a fresh and delicate wall  paper. Should tlie new paper be  strewn with roses, wbat more pleasing  than fresh chintz or cretonne to match?  One of the simplest chairs to cover  at home is tlie Chippendale, or any other in which the seat is removable.  These simply lift out The new covering is tacked on without gimp or  fancy nails, though the old covering  must be first removed. As for tools,  an upholsterer's hammer, a tack lifter,  small furniture brads and sharp little  gimp tacks are the requirements.  The first thing that must be done ls  to remove all possible old nails by  which soiled and faded uudercoverings  are attached. Having stripped the article���������a chair seat, let us say���������to the  original canvas covering the stuffing,  which ought to be horsehair, give it a  good beating to drive the remaining  dust out. Then stretch a piece of the  unbleached calico nearly all over the  upper side of the seat and fasten it  over on to the lower, side of the wood1  en frame with as few brads as will  keep lt taut and free from all wrinkles.  The edges of this and of the outer covering, which now goes on ln exactly  the same way, will not show because  the last part of the business will be to  cut a piece of tbe fine sacking to shape,  a little larger than the underneath of  the seat, turn the edges in and tack it  very neatly over the under side. The  only difficulty In such a simple piece of  work as this lies in the corners. The  novice should study the real upholsterer's methods in this respect. They will  be clearly, visible on any "stuff over"  furniture about the house.  DINNER  DECORATIONS.  A Miniature Oak Forest For the Center ot the Table.

A lady I met in Ireland related the  following facts to me just as they occurred. She was staying at a house  near Bardon, County Cork. One even-;  ing she was walking up the long carriage drive to the house���������it was bright  moonlight and nearly as light as day���������  when she saw a tall figure coming  down the narrow footpath beside the  "drive" toward ber. On coming closer  she saw it was a man dressed all in  black, wearing a tall silk bat, and she  wondered who it could be. His head  was bent forward so that the face was  in shadow, but as they came close to  each other he raised his head and looked at her and showed the most horrible  face imaginable. With a gasp of terror, sbe stepped off the path, and at  the same moment be did the same and,  putting out a clawlike hand, touched  ber arm, and as she shrieked out in  fear he completely vanished. She did  not see bim go, but he dissolved like  mist His face was aot like tbat of a  human being, and the horror of it was  quite indescribable. Her arm that the  specter touched was paralyzed and remained so for two weeks after. This  apparition had been seen by other people, but only at a distance, and but  few believed the stories current about  the place being "haunted."���������Occult Re-  view.       ^ -_ j  Th* Greek Dfe. ���������  The gold or silver blank, carefully  weighed and roughly forged, was heated to redness and laid by tongs on the  die. The top was then adjusted and  the impression made by mighty blows  with a smith's hammer. As no collar  was used and all register neglected,  the shape, but not the weight, of each  coin varied. Parts of the device were  often .lost Sometimes the edge of the  metal cracked, and very frequently the  impression doubled. Later on a hinged  adjustment of the dies was used. Greek  dies were not made of steel, but of  hardened bronze. They soon wore and  needed continual restoration and deep-1  enhig. Tho die sculptors were therefore constantly at work on them. Careful examinations shows that the dies  :were mostly cut with a wheel, like  gems, not with graving tools. This retouching of the matrices explains the  numerous minute variations in duplicates of the same coins. Very few are  _found__e^ctly������_^k&^^uthe_offiei  NATURE IS KIND.  Sensations of Those Who Fall From -*-  Any Great Height���������Always a Blank  to the Victims.  "Persons who fall from any    great  height have little or no recollection  of their sensations: during the actual .  falling period,"    remarked    the    am:  bulance  surgeon  as lie  finished  putting the arm of ah accident victim iu .  spliuts, says the   New   York   Press.  "Sometimes they know what   started  their fall, but the manner and sensation of falling is always a   blank   to  them. It seems almost-as if nature was.  kind enough to dull their senses,   so  that they would have no horrible sea-  satlons.  "Yesterday I'was called to a man..  who had fallen thirty feet from a roof-  He was seemingly conscious when w������d������  picked him up, but he could not reni-  member Che process of his fall! He remembered that he stepped on a nai?w  which started his tumble, but. he did  not remember that he grabbed at ara  eaves trough and that he tried to jab. ���������  his jackknife Into the shingles. But av.  fellow workman saw him    do   those*-  things.   When my mother fell downstairs there was every indication thatr  she tried to grasp the banister, that.  she did save herself for an instant the  fourth stair, from the bottom and thatr  when she finally reached the floor she  turned a complete somersault. But she-  remembered only that she stepped on  her dress and pitched down.  "Another man who fell from a roor  had the presence of mind to pusfc.  against a projection so that he landed*  on a roof twenty feet below. But he-  had no recollection of that fact. He  merely remembered that the scaffolding broke. Oftentimes a fall is accompanied by a somersault In the air, a-  hurtling against some projection which-  breaks the fall and a grabbing at  things; but, although the victim maybe conscious when he is picked up, ha-  has no remembrance of these thingg.  His path downward seems- to be an utter blank to him. I really believe lt ;&���������  nature's method of preventing a falling person from becoming hopelesslF*  crazed."  THE REAL BOOKWORM.

The neighbors of an old Irishwoman  were often surprised to see her carrying up two flights of stairs the "little  jags" of coal that came to her back  door every once in a while, knowing  that she had a big healthy son living  with her. One of these neighbors  happened to call on her just when a  half ton of the black diamonds had  been delivered. Her son was esconced  on an old horse hair covered sofa, a  cigarette in his mouth and a  sporting paper in his hands. The old  lady had her hods ready to make tile  numerous trips necessary to bring it  up to the third floor. "Why doesn't  your son bring up the coal, Mrs. Hooligan?" he asked. "I just ast him that  meself wan day, and he said he would  do it but he was too big to be after  carrying such small hods as these be.  Sure and Dinny is too big for this  kind of a job," and the old lady started  down for her coal.  IT IS PURE!

De Marisco  tried to rehabilitate the family fortunes by attempting the life of Henry  III. Falling in this effort, he fled to  his stronghold, but so great an offence  aroused the English King, and a force  was sent against Marisco. It returned  ���������with the outlaw king and 16 of his  companions, who were all well and  truly hanged.  The   Robbers'  Roost.

In 1632,  however,* It was made the headquarters of a notorious buccaneer named  Nutt, who called himself admiral, and  had two or three ships at his command.  He wrought such havoc along the coast  that several ships of war were necessary to exterminate him. But the island continued to support a cut-throat  population, gathered from all quarters  of the world, and down to the year 1747  "Charley, dear," said young Mrs.  Torkins, "yo'u said those losing ball  players field badly."
