Wouldn't Be "Scooped" Erra In Death.
There ia, there ever has been, and
most likely .always will be a feeling; of
antagonism .between morninjr and even
ing papers, and it is a fact that, even
when both papers are .the property of
one person or company, the forces em
ployed will exert themselves to their ut
most to get a scoop' en each other.
The news was received one day that the
editor of a great morning daily had com
mitted suicide. The report came in snch
manner that the city editor of an after
noon sheet felt it advisable to send a re
porter and get at the truth of the mat
ter. The reporter learned, of course,
on his -arrival at the morning paper of
fice that he was working on & false
rumor, bnt he thought it would be a
good scheme to interview the editor and
see what he had to say regarding the re
port. He entered his room and saw the sup
posed suicide seated at his desk. When
he had explained his mission the editor
snapped out vehemently, "Well, do I
look like a man who has committed sui
cide?" The reporter was obliged to de
clare that he looked very little like a
dead man, whereupon the editor roared
out, "And if I had committed suicide do
you think I would be fool enough to do

Ho Changed Bis Diet.
A vegetarian of this city has become a
flesh eater since he discovered a scientific
law that he had not previously beer,
aware of. He changed his mind upon
the diet question, and got convinced that
meats were among the proper edibles for
mankind after he had been assured by a
professor of chemistry that beef, mutton
and pork were merely "transformed
grass, vegetables and gram." After pon
dering upon this interesting law of chemi
cal transformation he came to the con
clusion that vegetarianism is a doctrine
of narrow scope, and he adopted a new
dietetic policy, under which he now en
joys tenderloin steaks, lamb chops and
tried bacon, not to speak of stewed kid
ney, pigs' feet and tete de veao. New
A Cute iattle Jap.
I saw on the street a little Jap toddling
along by the side of a stout old Jap,
whom I took to be his father. The
youngster wore a tunic, or whatever it
should be called, of brilliant blue and
knickerbockers green as grass. But this
gayety did .not extend beyond his clothes.
The weight of ages seemed to rest upon
his infantile brow he could not have
"been more than 4 years old and it is
certain that his infantile legs had bent
beneath the burden. He was an object
of conscious pride on the part of "his
father, of lively curiosity on the part of
people In the street, and was much more
foreign in appearance than any other
human creature that I have ever seen.
How to Kill English. Badgers.
Practically, it is said, the only way to
kill the English badgers is to stop their
'earths" in the covers along the hillside
while they are out on their midnight
foraging expeditions, and then hunt them
away with the hounds; for the badger is
one of the craftiest of animals, and often
outwits the dogs. He will not touch a
poisoned bait, and an old badger, it is
aaid, will "throw" a hundred traps with
impunity. To dislodge the anfmnig from
their re treats, if they once gain the earth,
is next to an impossibility. They are
most expert and rapid borrowers.
An Illuminated Fountain.
The apparatus employed in the electric
fountain in Lincoln park, Chicago, is
quite simple. A number of arc lamps
with horizontal carbons and each provid
ed with a parabolic reflector are located
in a vault or cavern beneath the fountain
pool. Openings covered by plate glass
and inclosed by brick spouts, permit of
the upward projection of the light into
the (Streams of water and spray. By
means of colored glass slides interposed'
between the lamp and the lower open

tiful combination effects are secured.

. she puts on the gloves or practices with
the foils. This is, indeed, a new era of
womankind. A gentle, ladylike girl
earning her own living at a desk and
riding a bicycle, boxing and fencing aft
er hours, will strike an old fogy as the
forerunner of a race of Amazons. But
matrimony, marketing for a family and
periodical housecleaning will subdue, if
they do not quench, her robust spirit.

Aa A ro mining Adventure in a Gold Mime
Shaft That Scared Two Men.
About as tight a place as I ever got
into, said A'Comstock miner, was some
years ago at .the- old Empire shaft, Gold
mil. Myself and another man were
down in the shaft for the purpose of
trimming it rap, as the swelling ground
was squeezing the sides and it was a
good deal out .of shape.
We were not .on a cage, but simply on
a platform -of -planks, with ropes going
up from the corners to the mam cable,
which was of hemp. When we reached
a tight place in the shaft we stopped and
trimmed out the guides, then went on
nil another snch -place -was -reached.
At one point, having given the signal
to lower, we went down some distance,
when we finally tuck. We reached for
the bell rope to give the signal to stop.
but we found thai it had wound round a
nail some distance above, and we could
not use it. The engineer knew nothing
of our trouble, and continued to lower
away. There was 110 station near, and
on all sides rose the smooth walls of the
shaft, leaving us suspended over the
Down upon us came the heavy cable.
We feared every moment that the plat
form would turn over or would be press
ed through the tight place and drop from
under us. All we could do was to get
hold of the eable and keep the coils of it
under our feet as it came down. Should
the platform turn over or drop from un
der us we might be able to save our lives
by hanging on to the cable.
We shouted up the shaft till we were
hoarse, but no one heard our cries, and
steadily down came the cable, causing
us great trouble to keep .on top of its
coils. We felt that the great weight
must soon start the platform, when both
would most Likely be hurled to the bot
tom of the shaft.
Finally, to our great relief, the cable
ceased to descend. For a long time wo
waited in suspense, not knowing what
would be the next move of thoee above.
At last, however, we heard the voice of
a man shouting down to us from the
nearest station above. We explained
our perilous position in a few words,
and at length the great cable began to
crawl slowly up the shaft again. Still,
being afraid the platform would give
way. we were obliged to keep hold of
the rope and dance about on the coils ay
It was a tedious business, and was all
the time the matter of the toss of a cent
whether we got out anve or went to the
bottom; but at last the platform tight
ened up under us and we began to as
cend. Our work was over then and we
felt safe. On arrival at the surface we
found that the engineer had concluded
that we were going too far, and halting
or stopping his engine had sent a man
down to the station to find out if any
thing had gone wrong.

Need of Pare Air.
In public halls and vehicles the oppres
sion of foul air is insupportable and
amounts to direct poisoning of the en-
reeoled organ. A heart seriously weak
ened, if kept in pure, warm air, fed with
delicate, nourishing food and kept from
fatigue and mental strain, will regain
strength as naturally as we get rest from
sleep. It has great recuperative powers.
But a half hour in the mephitic air of a
traveling car or a public hall does more
to make recovery impossible than almost
any other cause mentionable. This is a
matter which more than ever deserve
to he pressed upon the attention of rail
way companies, to whom the mass of our
people must trust their lives and health
for a share of their days quite long enough
to injure both.
The risk of accident by train is not half
so great as the certainty of imbibing
virulent poison from one to two hours
daily in unventilated cars. A sanitary
commission is needed to set the strict, un
biased facts of the matter before railway
managers. Shirley Dare in New York
Training the Eye. '
Another exercise consists in moving
about in curves a goblet filled to within
an eighth of an inch of the top with wa
ter. Grasp the goblet by the stem and
describe figures with the hand and arm
very slowly. The eye becomes fixed
upon the goblet, and the mind is inter
ested end concentrated. Where there is
lack of mental and nerve poise there is a
corresponding absence of poise in the
eye, and any practice, no matter how
simple it may seem, which fixes the at
tention of the eye has an effect upon
the mind and nerves. Mabel Jenness in
