The other professor  was  of the op-  . inion . that  the stove was elevated  <o  . i;e above    the window   in order  that.  cool   and     pure  air could be had  at  night.  Mr. Bcssom, Lcing more practical,  contended that the stove was elevated in order that a good supply of  green wood could be placed beneath  to dry: .  After considerable argument each  man .placed a dollar bill upon the table, and it was agreed that the one  whose opinion /was nearest the. reason for elevating the stove should |  take, the pool. The guide was called I  and as!-e;l why the stove was placed  in such an unusual position  "Well, sir," said, he, "when I prou  ��������� ght the- stove up the river I lost  nK.Kt of the stove pipe overboard, so  I had to set the stobe up there so as  10 have the pipe reach tln-uiigh the  roof."

MEN WITH TAILS  Mention oi an obscure Lelief in oth  er ccntries that Englishmen used to  wear, tails, has prompted a correspondent to submit souie information  regarding the sublett ol tails in general, says an Exchange-. Dr. John  U'oili, an old time writer, said:  "There is, even in England,, a gentleman of dark complexion and of great  talents, "'wiio . walks, exactly-, as if he  had a tail, and people of high rank  told'- me that he and his family were  Known- to have tails, and therefore  in his carriage there i.s a hole in thc  seat where he sits in order that he  may be able to sit comfortably." .  Baring-Gould's ''Curious Myths pf  the Middle Ages" contains the follow  ing. "Dr. Wolff in his travels and  ad ventures says, "There are men  immI \vomen in Ahyssinia with tails  like horses and dogs." Wolff also  heard from a great many Abyssinians  and Armenians (and Wolff is convinced of the truth of it) that there  are near Narea, in Abyssinia, people,  men and women, with large tails,  with which they are able to knock  down a horse, and there are also  such people near China."
