'A clever Swiss inventor ! has originated an instrument which tells the exact condition of the air in a room that is, its degree ol impurity, according to the New York Herald. It ia generally be lieved that if the air in a room is bad it will be sufficiently notice: able to the persons in the room without the aid of any instrument. But if one stops to remember how quickly the suffocating odors in a crowded room are perceived by a person entering fronthe pure air outside she will see that this state of things might; be remedied by this new invention. The instru ment consists of an air-tight glass receptacle in which is a red fluid. A bent glass tube is inserted in this and up this tube the fluid runs, to drop at the rate of two drops a minute on to a cord which is stretched by a weight. This fluid possesses the property of chang ing 'color when submitted to the action of carbonic acid gas. The more of this gas there is in the oom the more pronounced the hange in the color of the fluid. With this fact in mind the prin r-iple on which the indicator works s easily understood. The drops fluid as they fall on the string hange it according to the condi ion of the atmosphere. Should he atmosphere be pure the string mains red all the way down. :iould it be slightly tainted the ip of the string appears white ,'he fouler the air the longer the lute markson the string. By the ide of the string runs an.indica r, graded to show the exact con ition of the air.. The highest oint on the scale marks "pure,'-' :e next "passably: pure," then iad," and from there down to ery bad' and "extremely bad." lie instrument has been thor aghlv tested and found to work erfectly. :iSHOP VICTIM OF A JOKE.

"Oh, please, sir," r1k asked, .vill you open this gate for me?"

Have Several Virtue to Recommend Them aa Ornaments Alao Suit able for Hedges. More than 30 years ago an em inent botanist called attention to the beauty of our native thorn trees and their suitability for hedges and for lawn ornaments. Their hardiness and graceful shapes, thick foliage and brilliant fruit clusters all recommend them, while the ability to flourish un der u severe pruning is an added virtue in the eyes of those who de sire formal shapes. Yet up to the present time, says a writer! in c ountry' Life in America, our i horn trees remain the ornaments, not of private grounds, but of way sides and pastures; while the only pruners to exercise their skill upon them are' the cattle, which eagerly, browse upon the young shoots. Many a pasture contains . shrubs fitted to grace a public park and worthy of considerable pilgrimage on the part of lovers of the beautiful. , ' CEMETERY GAG SOLD FARM D Pag County, HL, Kan Adopts a Unique Method of Selling Land Advantageously. "There are many wayB of bring ing a hesitating buyer op to the mark," said Lawyer John E. Ke- hoe, in the Chicago Daily NewB, "but the way my friend and client, Tom Corrigan, of Du Page county, 111., managed to sell his farm was about as unique as any. "Tom was tired of farming in that particular section. He want ed to sell and get out, and his neighbor, Silas Barker, . whose farm lay across the road from him, wanted just as badly to buy and get in. But Silas was a great hand at a bargain, and he kept waiting for Tom to come down to a price that would please him. This Tom was not inclined to do. The pair occasionally met and casually re ferred to the matter, one trying to conceal that he was anxious to sell and the other that he was burning to buy, but they never seemed to come any nearer an agreement. " 'Well, Mr." Barker,' said Tom, at length, 'I think I've a good buy er in view now for thi farm of mine. Still, you being a neighbor, I'm willing to give you the prefer ence.' . " 'What'i your price to-day?' asked Silas.' " 'It's 500 more thn it was last time,' replied Tom. " 'I guess not,' said Barker. "Next day Silas saw Tom Bar ker conducting a Roman Catholic priest over the farm as if showing him its various points and advan tages. On inquiry he got a whis per from a friend of Tom's that the latter was negotiating with Father Madigan, who wanted the place for a cemetery. "For a cemetery! Right at his door, too! A cemetery, with hearses and carriages full of mourners, unloading almost at his very threshold every ' day, and bristling rows of tombstones to look out upon every night. This would be a sad upset to his cher ished dream of amalgamating the two farms and owning one of the finest pieces of land in Du , Page county. "Very soon he sought out Tom Corrigan. 'Is it true that you're going to sell your farm to t priest?' " 'That's my own business, Mr. Barker,' said Tom. " 'And is it true that it's going to be made into a cemetery?. " 'Faith, then, 'tis little I know or care what the buyer intends to make of it, so long as I get a good price for it.' -" 'Tom i Corriean. what's the price of vour. farm to-day?' " " 'It's 1,000 more than it was yesterday,' answered Tom. "'Well, then,' said Barker, 'I'll take it at that price.' "And he took it. Now, the priest had no notion of booming Corri- gan's real estate with his innocent visit, so he was angry. But he was not so thoroughly disgusted as was Silas Barker when the latter discovered the trick by which Cor rigan had got his own price for his farm." KOREANS TRAIN TORTOISES how Wonderful Skill and Ability in Teaching Beptiles to Xxeenta Various 'Evolutions. 'Japanese and Korean show men, in addition to their skill as jugglers and acrobats, display truly marvelous skill in teaching animals tricks. They not only ex hibit educated bears, spaniels monkeys and goats, but also trained birds, and what is the most astonishing of all, trick fish One of the most curious examples of patient training is an exhibit by an old Korean boatman of a dozen drilled tortoises. Directed bv his songs and a small metal drum they march in line, execute vari ous evolutions, and conclu'de b, climbing upon a low table, the larger- ones forming of their own accord a bridge for the smaller, to which the feat would otherwise be impossible. When they have all mounted they dispose of them selves in three or four piles, like so many plates. - , A 0. C. & T.
