can now walk two miles without its

How Strauss One# Snubbed • Ruooian
When Johann Straus* took his
orchestra to Russia he had some un
usual experiences not generally
vouchsafed to those who live out
side an autocratic government.
One day ho received the czarina’s
commands to play before her at her
summer resort and was told on ar
riving there that he would have to
rehearse his program three times
before the performance. He begged
to know the reason for that, but no
explanation was given him. These
were her majesty’s orders, and he
could only comply. Still, his as
tonishment grew when he saw dur
ing the three rehearsals an empty
court carriage drawn by a pair of
horses slowly going back and forth
in front of his oil liestra.
Throughout the final perform
ance the mysterions act was ex
plained. The empress, having a
sharp attack of gout, was obliged to
recline in the ea riage, her foot ou
a cushion, while the concert took
place, and the object of rehearsal
lull) been to accustom the horses to
a full string bund lest they should
take fright and bolt with her.
At the end of the performance
an exalted dignitary of the court
bade Strauss follow him to a splen
did grand piano, saying:
“Now be good enough to play me
all the newest Vienna music.”
Although he was pretty fatigued
by his three rehearsals und slate
performance, Strauss thought it ex
pedient to comply, but after he had
played continuously for over an
iiour he stopped, saying, “I presume
that will be sufficient?”
“I am not at all tired,” coolly re
joined his excellency.
“But 1 ami” said Strauss aud rose
from the instrument.
Tha Bwaffhsm Tinker and Hit Dog
Two quaint figures are carved on
the two top pews and reading desk
of Swaffharn church. According to
legend, a tinker had a dream bid
ding him go to London bridge and
a stranger would reveal to him how
to find a pot of money. So of! he
went with his dog, and at the bridge
a stranger stopped him, 6aying,
“L,ust night I had a dream bidding
me go to Swaffharn and dig in such
and such a place and (here find a
pot of money, but I don’t believe
in dreams.” Then hack went thp
tinker, dug for and found the pot
ns described and also an inscription
bidding him dig deeper, which he
did, and found another, and with
them restored SwalThain church.
The carvings were put up to per
petuate his memory. T/mdou

WHY HE QUIT THE BUSINESS.
Qrim Btory of th Man Who Us*d to
Bo a Drug Clerk.
"I got out of the drug business
because something happened that
nearly turned my hair gray,” said
the serious faced man.
“I used to sleep in the store, and
often 1 had to answer night calls.
One night I was awakened from a
deep sleep by somebody persistently
ringing the door bell.
"I found a small boy at the door,
and he handed me a prescription.
1 was so sleepy that I could hardly
see, but 1 filled the prescription, the
boy paid me and hastened away.
“When I went to replace the bot
tles I bail taken from the shelves
my eyes were open a little w’ider
than in the opening stages of my
wakefulness, and I was horrified to
find that instead of taking dowu
the bottle of tincture of orange [
had used the next bottle, a deadly
“i flew out of the street door and
looked up and down the street. Tho
boy bad disappeared. I bad never
seen him before and did not know
for whom the medicine was. I
wanted to rush off to the doctor and
find out who the patient was, but
that I decided would be useless, as
it would be too late to do any good.
“I entered the store and paced up
and down the llosr. My hair stfood
on end. I saw my victim in ay the
agony of aconite poisoning. I saw
the pale face of death. I saw the
family vowing vengeance.
“My heart thumped furiously as
1 heard hastening footsteps. I peer
ed through the window and saw the
boy who had brought the prescrip
tion. The bottle was gone. My
only hope vanished. With a trem
bling hand 1 opened the door, pre
pared to hear the worst.
“The lad stood hesitating. Tears
were in his eyes. I dared not speak.
“T—please, mister,’ he stam
mered, ‘1 ran so fast I fell and
broke the bottle, and I ain’t got any
“My heart leaped into my throat.
1 felt like giving a yell of joy as L
leaped forward and pulled that boy
into the store. 1 wanted to hug
and kiss him. When I had master
ed my emotion I gave him another
bottle of medicine which 1 most
cheerfully paid for out of my own
pocket, and into the bargain I gave
him the biggest handful of expen
sive candy lie ever had.” New
Hairpins have been elaborated as
a means of decoration since the
earliest times. Particularly beauti
ful is the delicacy of their work
manship, two of tiie finest speci
mens being Ihe gold pins which
were found at Sulamis in Cyprus
and nro now in the British museum.
Even more handsome were the Sax
on pins of a later date, with their
shank of brass, head of gold and
embellishment of garneta and
pearls. There were, too, the larger
sort of pins so conspicuously and
frequently mentioned in the Bible.
The instrument driven by Jael
through the temple of Sisera was
probably a tent pin, while Delilah
fastened the web on Samson’s hair
with a pin or batten.—London Mail.
Gambling Among tha Ancient*.
Gambling with dice and cards has
prevailed from the earliest times.
We do not read of gambling houses
in the classic literature of Greece,
but there can be no doubt that the
vice was very widely practiced in
private houses. Iri Rome, under tho
emperors, gambling prevailed very
extensively Augustus and most of
the succeeding sovereigns were pas
sional! i\ mi of the dice, and the
Emnoror i iaudius wrote a book on
