avwg-ea Note Things to Which Civi
lized Byes Are Blind.
Savages are supposed to have keener
senses, especially a keener sense of
fight, than civilized races. The author
of "Idle Days In Patagonia" does not
accept this theory. He believes that
savages have no keener senses, but
that they pay closer attention to what
comes within the range of their percep
tion. As an instance of quick response
to an impression be tells the following
On March 12, 1801, a company of
hunters were camping beside a grove
of willows in Tataeonla. Ahonr U
o'clock that evening, while they were
seated round the lire roasting their os
trich meat Sosa suddenly sprang to his
feet and held his open hand high above
his head for some moments. "
"There Is not a breath of wind blow
ing," he exclaimed, "yet the leaves of
the trees are trembling. What can this
The others stared at the trees, but
eould see no motion, and they began to
laugh at him. Presently he sat down
again, remarking that the trembling
had ceased, but during the rest of the
evening he was very much disturbed in
his mind. He remarked repeatedly that
such a thing had never happened in his
experience before, for, he said, he could
feel a breath of wind before the leaves
felt It and there had been no wind. He
feared that it waB a warning of some
disaster about to overtake their party.
The disaster was not for them. On
that evening occurred the earthquake
which destroyed the distant city of
Mendoza and crushed 12,000 people to
death beneath the ruins. That the sub
terranean wave extended east to the
Plata and southward into Patagonia
was afterward known, for in the cities
of Rosario and Buenos Ayres clocks
stopped, and a slight shock was also
experienced in the Carmen on the Rio
PEOPLE WHO APPEAR OLD.
How They Mny Preserve the Buoy
ancy and Freshness of Yonth.
People who appear old must expect
to be considered so, and, if they apply
for positions with every appearance
that senility has struck them and that
they have gone to seed, they cannot
expect favorable consideration. If gray
haired applicants for positions would
only appreciate the value of appear
ances and would "brace up" when they
seek situations go "well groomed"
and well dressed, with elastic steps,
showing that they still possess Are,
force and enthusiasm they would
eliminate an obstacle greater than
their gray hairs.
We think ourselves Into Incapacity
by looking for signs of age and dwell
ing on them, and the body follows the
thought Ws should, therefore, avoid
the appearance of age in every possi
ble way by dress, carriage, conversa
tion and especially by our attitude to
ward people and things. It Is not diffi
cult to preserve the buoyancy and
freshness of youth, but It must be done
by constant effort and practice. A mu
sician who expects to make only one or
two important appearances a year
must keep up his practice. Youthful
ness cannot be put on for a day If old
age has had a grip on yon for months.
It is important to preserve the fire of
youth' as long as possible, to carry
freshness and vigor into old age by
keeping up a hearty interest in every
thing that interests youth. Many of
us seem to think that youthful sports
and pastimes are foolish, and before
we know it we get entirely out of sym
pathy with all young life, and conse
quently really old, whatever our years.
We must think youthful thoughts, as
sociate with young people and interest
them. When a porson ceases to Inter
est the yeiing he may bo sure that he
Is showing signs of old age. Success.
A Shrewd Client.
An amusing story Is told among law
yers of a Walloon peasant who had
gone to law with a neighbor. In a con
versation with his lawyer he suggested
sending the magistrate a couple of fine
"Not for your life," said his adviser.
"If you do you'll lose the case."
The judgment was given in his favor,
when he turned to his lawyer and said,
"I sent the ducks." Astonishment on
the letter's part turned to admiration
when his client continued, "But I Bent
them In my neighbor's name." London

A Miraculous Vault.
The most interesting place of pll
jrlmage In Dublin is St Mlchan's
church, where the organ is still to be
feen upon which Handel is said to have
composed his "Messiah." In the grave
yard is the last resting place of Robert
Kmmet, and the vault at St Mlchan's
provides a more grewsome thrill than
the morgue. The sexton lifts an iron
door and descends a few rude steps,
carrying a light . without which the
place would be pitch dark. You follow
und find yourself In a narrow passage,
from which cell-like recesses belonging
to different families branch off. Wheth
er it is owing to the extreme dryness
of the surroundings or to some mysteri
ous property of the place the process of
decay has been arrested, and the fea
tures of persons dead for two centuries
may be recognized from authentic por
traits. Here lie the brothers Shoares,
who were executed for their share in
the united Irish conspiracy, side by
side almost with the Earl of Leltrim,
who was murdered about thirty years
ago. The earl's ancestors for hundreds
of years back rest in the same vault.
Perhaps the strangest thing about the
vault is the fact that apart from the
weird sensation, there is nothing of
fensive In the surroundings. London
WHEN YOU BUY
Hew Men Fall When Shot.
Nearly every one is familiar with the
traditional stage fall, where the victim
of a supposed death shot strikes an at
titude, clasps his hand to his heart,
stiffens every Joint and muscle,
breathes hysterically and goes down
like a log toppled over from the end.
Another popular yet erroneous notion
is that men shot through the vitals
leap into the air and go down In a dra
matic attitude. Sometimes men are
found on the field in striking positions,
but often an examination shows that
the position was taken after the fall.
As a rule a man who is hit above the
hips sinks down. The slighter the
wound the more commotion, for the
body instinctively reslBts, Just as It
does when one slips or is pushed or col
lides with some object. But a wound
in a vital spot weakens the resistance
and men sink at once or reel and tum
ble with very little self control.
