His Little Joke.
A Denver doctor who Insists on Jok
ing onco In a while noticed some scales
of a now pattern I11 a shop window.
Over them was a sign which read:
"Weigh your supplies yourself at
home. Tbo scales will pay for them
selves. I'rico $1."
Tho doctor went Into tho shop, ex
amined tho scales aud decided to try
them. He had one wrapped up and
started away with It.
"Oh, by tho way," said tho shop
keeper, "did you want to pay for that,
cc shall I charge it?"
"Tho sign says they'll pay for them
selves," replied tho doctor. "Now, If
this one doesn't you let mo know and
we'll have It arrested."

An Edinburgh minister rolled a
thousand feet down the steeps of Ben
Nevis and lived to tell the tale. Ad
miral Sir Novell Salmon was clean
shot through at Lucknow nnd returned
as dead, but came up smiling soon
nfterward. Similar was Lord Wolse
ley's experience In the Crimea: but,
though pretty well riddled with shot
aud shell and deprived of the sight of
an eye, he was able soon after to en
joy a laugh over his own obituary.

The Seal's Sense of Smell.
The sense of smell possessed by the
seals Is very strong and will Invariably
wake them out of a sound sleep, oven
if you come upon them ever so quietly
to the windward, and you will alarm
them in this way much more thorough
ly, though you be a half mile distant,
than if you came up carelessly from
the leeward and even walked In among
them, they seeming to feel that you
are not different from one. ot their own
species until they smell you. The chief
attraction In these animals Is their
large, handsome eyes, which Indicate
grent Intelligence. They are a deep
bluish black, with a soft, glistening
appearance, and the pupil, like the
cat's, Is capable of great dilation and
Curiosities About Fish Scales.
Tho thin silver- coating of fish
scales derives its luster from- many
minute crystals of lime mixed with
a peculiar substance called "guanln."
This coating of silver crystals Is very
easily rubbed off the scales, and In the
ense of a European species of carp
known ns the "bleak" the crystals are
so numerous that a metallic pigment,
commercially known as "argentine," is
made from them. The large globular
glass beads known as "German" or
"Roman" pearls are coated on the In
side with this substance. In some spe
cies of fish with lusterless scales the
silvery lining Is found on the Inside of
the body. A well known example of
this Is seen In the common smelt.
