Vlclsiltudci of Picture.
Tho vicissitudes of Leonardo tin

minds a correspondent of the straugo
experiences of Holbein's "Held of tliu
Cloth of Gold," which may bo seen

After the downfall of Charles 1., Crom
well lu order to rnlso funds propoxed
tho sale of certain pictures, this among
the number. Tho bargain was already
made, but when tho would bo pur
chaser came to Inspect Holbein's mas
terpiece he discovered that the head
of Henry VIII. had been cut from tliu
canvas. Ho naturally withdrew his
offer, ft tut the picture was preserved
to thu nation. On the restoration n
nobleman confessed to having com
mitted the theft for love of art nnd hi
country, and he returned the missing
head, which now ix-cuples Its original

(Jetting an "Old Man,"
"Speaking of new men," said the
boss of the skyscraper builders, with n
twinkle, "comical things happen even
up here, the same as In n theater.
Sometimes lu rush seasons there nln't
enough hands to go round, nnd we
hnve to take 'cm green ns the hills. I
had ono once, n kid from Vermont, a
whnlo of n kid, with bones like n horse
nnd eyes awful nnxlous to plense
cyes that tnado you like him. He's one
of tho best men I've got now, but then
he was green ns God made htm." The
foreman stopped to chuckle.
'"Go up to tho eighteenth floor.' I
told him one dny, 'and bring down an
old man.' I wns busy nt tho time, nnd
when I saw the kid stnrc I snld kind

This was Just my way of making lilm

lu n few minutes he came down with
n sputtering, cluwlng old feller held
llko n vise In his arms.
"'Ho was the only old man on thu

Making Caricatures.
The way lu which some nrtlsts can
distort features without making them
unrecognizable Is certainly very re
markable, Thomas Nast possessed
this faculty to nu extraordinary de
gree, and he had u very peculiar way
of nildlug uuw faces to his mental
photograph gallery. When n fresh
subject would arise In politics, for In
stance, ho would Invent some pretext
to cnll upon him nt his olllcc or house
nnd hold him In conversation ns long
as possible, studying his features.
When ho took his depnrturo ho would
purposely leave his cane. Once out
side, Nast would make n hasty pencil
sketch ou a curd nnd would usually
find that his memory wns dcllclcut ns
to some detail. Ho would then return,
ostensibly for tho cane, nnd another
look at the victim would enable him
to perfect his sketch, After that lie
had thu mail forever. When Joe Kop
pier was nllvc ho used to make fre
quent trips to Washington for the pur
pose of seeing statesmen whom be
wanted to draw, lln was very clever
at catching likenesses and scarcely
ever referred to n photograph.
A Wonderful Dlrd.
Ono dny u wonderful bird tapped at
tho window of Mrs. Nnusen's (wife of
thu famous n relic explorer) home nt
Chrlstlnuhi. Instantly the window was
opened, nnd lu another moment she
covered the little messenger with
kisses and caresses. The carrier pi
geon had been nwny from thu cottage
thirty long mouths, but It had not for
gotten the way home. It brought n
nolo from Niiuseii, stating that all was
going well with him nnd his exKdltlon

ed n message to thu bird and turned It

Into tho hllxzardly air. It Hew like an

Porter Always a Bailor.
During Grant's first term his secre
tary of the navy, Ilorie, for n tlmo
turned tho nctunl administration over
to Admiral Porter. Admiral Porter
was n sailor In the strict etymological
sense of tho term In tlint ho believed
there was nothing like sails. As soon
ns he was In authority he cntiBod the
four bladed propellers of the vessels
to be removed nnd replaced by two
bladed ones In order that the ships
might maneuver better under sail. Tho
Inclllclency thereby brought nbout is,
nf course, nppnrcnt to nny engineer, ns
tho size of the propeller opening wns
fixed nnd tho two bladed screw could
not bo mndo largo enough. A few yenrs
Inter In n report to tho department ho
ijctually claimed that tho vessels were
fnster under Btcnin with tho mutilated
screws. Tho facts, of course, wore Just
tho reverse, nnd when his Influence be
en mo less proper propellers were ngnln
fitted. This wns when ho wns still in
his prime nnd ills Judgment wns, nt
least, not Impaired by nge. About
twenty years Inter, when tho Iloncn
cruisers were being built, the denr old
mnn, then over seventy, went beforo
the naval committee nnd snld that tho
Plans of theso vessels were wrong bo
causo they had only nuxlllnry sail

hnvo been given full sail power with

The Desert Tortoise.
Ono of the most Interesting reptiles
of California's great desert Is tho ties

that wo usually associate In our minds
with tho thought of wntcr In tho very

pick them up they generally void two

The Wise Eskimos.
Everything In the Eskimo dress hns
n reason for Its existence, writes Cap
tnln Itonld Amundsen lu "The North
west Passage." Tho memliers of Cap
tain Amundsen's expeditious hnd bo
come nccustomed to thu Eskimo dress
and hnd adopted It, but many of them
thought It ridiculous for grown up
men to go nbout wearing fringe to
their clothes, so they cut It off. I
hnd my scruples nbout this, says tho
author, ns t had nlrendy learned that
most things lu tho Eskimo's clothing
nnd other nrrnugumcnts had their dls
tlnet meaning nnd purpose, so 1 kept
my fringe nnd put up with tho ridi
cule. Ho laughs best who Inuglis last.
One flue day tho nnovnks, n sort of
tunic renrhlug below tho knee, made
nf deersktu, from which tho fringes
had been cut off, commenced to curl
up, nnd If tho fringe hnd not been put
ou again quickly they would soon have
looked like neckties.
