Some writer on etiquette, a good
many years ago, said that it was per
fectly proper to eat fried chicken with
tho fingers. I have often noticed peo
ple seize on a wing and rip it open like
they would tear a yard of clothing ma
terial off a bolt of calico aud so the
cracking of the crazy bone was audible
all over the dining-room. It is true
that some fried chickens require heroic
treatment, but when an apprentice in
etiquette tries to jerk the goose-flesh off
the second joint of a Louis XIV. hen
and squirts a streuk of gravy into the
eye of his neighbor it does seem that a
new code regarding the best manner of
shattering the remains of a hard-boiled

The Shook Which Killed Clark of Maay
The khoe emporium was deserted.
All alone the clerk stood in the midst
of a chaos of unbuttoned shoes and dis
r or over an hour he had vainly en
deavored to fit the foot, whims, eye,
pocket-book and other peculiarities of
proud and aristocratic Mrs D'Width.
He was tired out. disgusted with bus
iness life, and, in fact, life of any sort;
and as be viciously buttoned up the
dainty specimens of artistic footwear
and crushed them into tbe cartoons, he
might have been heard to utter things
in relation to the proud Mr. D' Width's
peculiarities which w ere considerably
removed from the complimentary, and
would have surprised and shocked the
leader of fushion.atid society could she
have heard them.
The poor clerk waa discouraged by
his failure to make a sale, lie was
weary of these efforts of women to de
ceive even the practiced shoe salesman
to the si.e of their feet; and as the
uoor suuueniy opened to admit a trimly
built and prettily dressed little woman
he heaved an anxious sigh before he as
sumed liis Indies'-lino-shoe smile and
stepped politely forward.
"I will look at some fine shoes, com
mon-sense toes, low broad heel, high-
cut vamp, hund-weltod sole, Dongola
kid, and with buttons, if you please."
Tho clerk's whole Bystem received a
severe shock at the unusually succinct
and complete description, which he
was just about to obtain by shrewd
questioning. He recovered, however,
sufficiently to gasp, "What size please?"
"I have been wearing," said the trim
little woman, "a number two-and-a-half
'B,' but I'm sure it is much smaller
than I ought to be wearing, and I think
I'll have this time a three ?,' and if
that is not large enough, a three-and
a-half D.' "
The trim little woman uttered a hor-
ifled scream. The double shock had
been too great; the shoe clerk of long
experience lay upon one or the gor
geously upholstered divans, cold and

recullarltlea of the Aalatle Chameleon and
the African Gecko.
Among the many families of lizards,
and almost innumerable species, two
of the most Interesting are the chame
leon Vnd the gecko, of Asia and Africa.
The first of these has long been famous
for Us power of changing color; but
this has been somewhat exaggerated.
As a fact, however, a chameleon whose
primary hue is gray black, will some
times be striped like a zebra, with light
yellow, or covered with circular yel
low spots, sometimes a brilliant green.
and sometimes will take the hue of the
autumnal leaves on the branch where
it is sitting, so that the creature can
hardly be distinguished from the foli
Ihe chameleon s tongue has a vis
cid secretion on the end, and he aims
it as a billiard-player does his cie,
darting it out at a passing fly, who is
struck and stuck at the same time.
He is a slow moving fellow, and in
climbing a tree will sometimes after
raising one foot hold it In air a long
time, as If be had gone to sleep and
forgotten to take the Intended step.
His progress is like the hour-hand of
a watch; but eventually he gets there.
Ihe gecko Is noted for its ability to
run up a perpendicular wall, which it
does by the use of its peculiar feet, in
which the toes are expanded at their
extremities into a disc furnished with
claws. This apparatus enables it to
travel regardless of the laws of gravi
tation, like a common house-fly,
whose feet resemble the gecko's. It
is said that a prisoner in n high stone
tower was once released by a fiiond
tying a thread to the hind leg of a
gecko, and starting hira up the wall
under the prisoner's window. The
creature glided up anil carried the
thread to the captive, who by this
means pulled up a stouter line bv
which he made his escape. The gecko
Is often regarded with superstitious

DEFECTS OP HEARING.
Affliction. That Are Kven More Pr.vale
Thun Color llllndneaa.
"A groat deal of attention is given by
the Federal Government and by rail
road corporations to the matter of color
blindness in persons who seek to qual
ify for the duties of pilots, engineers,
brakemen, etc., and it is attention
wisely bestowed. But as yet these same
critical authorities have paid but llttlo,
if any, attention to the aural defects la
river and railway employes. It has
been my duty to study the subject of
defective hearing in railway employes,
and I have discovered with amazement
that there are many ears which are pe
culiarly sensitive to certain classes of
sound and peculiarly deaf to other
classes," says Dr;. Robert Barclay. "I
have experimented upon boiler-makers,
who could not hear ordinary conversa
tion under such conditions as make it
audible to the ordinary ear, and who
could yet understand the same con
versation carried on at the same pitch
in a room where one hundred sledges
were clattering upon iron boiler sheila
I have also discovered that there are
persons who can not hear a locomotive
whistle, except when it is close by, and
yet are not suspected of any defect of
the hearing. I remember a case of this
kind, which came up in court, where a
farmer stopped and listened for tha
locomotive whistle before crossing tha
railroad track. He failed to hear it,
and on proving that he had stopped his
team he secured damages for having
been run down by the engine, and yet
the whistle was blown and the farmer
failed to hear it I would recommend
that the same relative tests be applied
to the hearing of persons who seek em
ployment as railway hands and pilot
that are applied to their vision." St
SUGAR FROM BEETS.
A Glimpse at a Few of the Prooeaaei Em
ployed la It. Manufacture.
The wushing of the beet is a very im
portant operation in the manufacture
of the sugar, for the roots are thus
freed from mold, small stones and other
kinds of dirt attaching to them, which
not only saves the machinery employed
in the actual preparation of the beets.
from injury, but keeps the sugar ulti
mately obtained free from impurity.
With the mere washing of the beets the
sugar manufacturer is not content; they
are therefore freed from those parts
which are poor in saccharine, damaged
or otherwise undesirable, by a machine
called a rarousal.
Whe" "'Mnod, the beets are thrown
from the wa.li-barrel into a hopper,
from which they pass into an endless
elevator which carries them to the top
floor, whore they are discharged into a
large hopper. They then pass into a
cage wiiicli will Mold one thousand
pounds of beets, and, when this weight
is indicated, the cuge empties its load,
into the cutter or slicer. The cage and
the Indicator enable the factory people
to closely estimate the amount of raw
material used each day. It is also a
chock on every department. It will
show any error that may arise in the
receiving or shipping departments.
The slicer Is a round iron shaft, rotat
ing horizontally, and fitted with steel
knives capable of slicing four hundred
tons of beets in twenty-four hours. The
rotating knives, which descend upon
the beets, cut them into thin slices, thus
exposing the sugur-cells, which Is an
important factor In the diffusion system.
The lower end of the cutter opens into
a wooden trough about two feet square,
on the bottom of which is an endless
belt As the sliced beets fall from the
cutter, the belt carries them along to
the diffusion tanks. A. H. Almy, in
