But did my solemn and well chosen
words of warning turn Hiram from his
evil ways? Not a bit. Within three days
he had his trap fixed', sort of hid in the
branches, and sent out a cry like a baby
bear that has been caught In a trap.
There’s no denying Hiram had talent in
his unsanctified way, for that call was the
most natural sounding thing I ever heard.

Eccentric Brother of the Late Earl
of Airlle, Worked It In a Denver
Hotel With Mnch Sneers*.
The untimely decease of the Earl of
Airlle before Pretoria brings apprecia
bly near to the title a character known
on the Pacific coast, and especially in
Colorado, as one of the most eccentric
Englishmen that has ever settled in
that country. The Hon. Lyulph Ogil
vie, a brother of the late Earl, was once
an officer in the Scottish Rifles; but find
ing the routine life of q soldier in times
of peace far too uneventful for his ad
venturous spirit, he, some years ago, de
cided to settle among the cowboys and
frontiersmen of the West. With this end
in view' he nside a tour of the Pacific
coast that Is still remembered for his
prodigal expenditure and decidedly un
conventional habits, fianlly he purchased

his eccentric way of life, the astonish
ment of the more sober-minded of the
The best story told illustrating bis
character is perhaps that of the rooster in
the Denver hotel.
It appeared that on his periodical visits
to Denver, Mr. Ogilvie believed he had
reason to complain of the inattention to
his request to be always called at day
break. Whether he rose or not at that
time, he always Insisted upon being call
ed at dawn. As, however,daybreak is a
somewhat indefinite hour for a night clerk
to determine, disputes invariably arose
over tl exact period when that event
took place. Thus it was that Mr. Ogilvie
finally decided upon a novel solution of
Upon his next visit It was noticed that
he carried a bundle under his arm, that
he declined positively to hand over to any
one’s care, and being shown to his # room,
retired for the night.
At daybreak next morning, however, the
corridors of the hotel resounded with the
ldsty crowing of a cock that quickly
brought most of the guests into wrathful
communication with the office, and sent
the attendants in all directions to dis
cover the source of the unusual sound.
Being traced at last to Mr. Ogilvie's
room the night watchman knocked cau
tiously upon the door.
For answer there came both the voice
of the rooster saluting the advent of the
dawn and gruffly that of ilr. Ogilvie
from udder the bed clothes.
"What's the matter?” he shouted.
"If you please, sir, the manager would
like to know If you have—ifthe noise of
crowing comes from your room?”
“Come in and see for yourself," re
plied the ron of the English peer.
The watchman complied, when the first
thing he beheld in the half light was a
gigantic roster perched on the rail at the
.foot of the }lon. Lyulph Ogilvie s bed.
"Look here,” said the latter, “if you
won't attend to my orders, I have to
find an automatic way of being awakened.
You can take It away now-, but see that
you call me at daybreak In future.”
At the commencement of the Spanish-
American war Mr. Ogilvie enlisied in the
Colorado Volunteers, being discovered by
a surprised friend initiating some raw
comrade into a few wrinkles that he had
learned in his previous military career.
In the subsequent campaign in Cuba Mr.
Ogilvie' was more fortunate than his late
brother in South Africa, for he came
through without u scratch, and now stands
near in succession of the earldom.

THE ni\m OF TEMPER A MEAT.
A Sort of I’sychologicnl Dlspensary
for Specified Frame, of Mind.
Hew York, July 6—A learned foreign
professor whose scientific researches have
made his name familiar, has recently been
appointed to till the newly created chair
of temperament in a local university. The
attention given of lale to the study of psy
chology justifies a statement of the pro
fessors theories supplemented by Instances
actually observed on the occasion of a visit
to the laboratory.
It was a bright, spring morning, when
the very atmosphere seemed charged with
psychology. Each changing aspect of the
landscape and every sh ftirg breeze sc.mej
to carry with It lis own mood and temper.
The humble student of science approach
ed the stately buildings of the college,
eagerly anticipating an audience with the
new professor. The visitor was deep in
thought, wondering at the mysteries of
human nature. Why do humorists always
possess a serious, not to say pathetic cast
of countenance? And how is it that un
dertakers generally have such a rich
fund of amusing anecdotes? I’orßiorlng
such profound problems as Ihese the hum
ble student entered the Hall of Scienoe
and approached the laboratory of the pro
The large room possessed what might
be called a conglomerate appearnnete, re
sembling in different ways a drug shop, a
grocery store and a laboratory. There
was a raised platform at one end of the
room, and on it stood a long desk sur
mounted by tins, bulbs, packages and the
general litter of a laboratory table. The
walls were hung here and there with what
looked like phrenologists’ articles similar
to those on the table. In a large arm
chair, swung on a swivel and tilted back
at a comfortable angle, sat the professor
himself, his long and bushy hair giving
him a disheveled though distinguished ap
pearance; and through glasses which seem
ed two sizes too large, his keen eyes shot
a sharp but kindly glance of inquiry as
the visitor entered.
After Inquiring whether this was the
professor and being answered in the affir
mative, the student said;
“I was much interested, professor, in
reading the notice of your work in the
last number of The Microbe, as well ns
the editorial reference, supplemented by
your portrait in Mind. But 1 wanted a
more intimate knowledge of yourself, your
theories and operations, ond consequently
have traveled a considerable distance with
that purpose in view. Do I understand
that people actually visit you here and
have you dispense frames of mind to them
at so much per frame?”
"Not exactly,” the professor replied,
slowly, "I do not make any charge for
the frames of mind I induce. I merely
ask that the subjects report results to me,
so that I may continually be adding data
to that which I already possess. The
truly scientific mind is above pecuniary
"f admire your principles,” said the
student, “they do you honor. But I
have never heard a definite statement of
your theories for the production of tem
perament to order, or artificial frames
of mind. 'Will you enlighten me?”
"With pleasure,” said the professor.
"The principle on which I base my work
may be stated in this way: It Is a well
known scientific fact that certain physi
cal causes will produce certain mental
results. Indeed, it would appear that al
most every state of mipd may be pro
duced as the result of something par
taken of. For example, inhaling certain
gases induces laughter. On the other
hand, the simple onion has been known
to move the most obdurate and hard
hearted to tears. Coffee induces wake
fulness, and many well know drugs will
bring about sleep. Champagne induces
mirth; while certain forms of pie are
apt to sit heavy In the stomach and
cause melancholy. My work has been to
bring this branch of science to a practi
cal issue. And thus, after years of as
siduous study and careful investigation,
I am able to conduct a sort of psycholo
cal dispensary. There is some lit 'e
time yet before I shall have to begin my
class lectures. And In the meantime you
may remain with me here, observing any
visitor who may call to seek my aid or
advice, and from such Incidents as oc
cur you may be able to gather some val
uable data upon the subject.”
The visitor expressed himself ss de
lighted with the opportunity. He was
able, while the professor was talking, to
cart some swift glances about the room,
and carefully note some of its features.
From reading the labels on various hot
tlos and packages it becan?e evident that
the highest shelves held the most expen
sive and imaginative elements, not great
ly in demand except by poets. The pro
fessor said it was an expensive luxury to
be a/p'pet, poetry was often as severe a
strain upon the poet himself as upon the
reading public. The visitor felt a wild,
but perfect natural, thrill of Joy on re
ceiving this information. He would have
fallen upon the professor's neck in a
grateful embrace if it had not semed
such an undignified thing to do. Such is
the enthusiasm of youth.
Some granulated substance like sugar
was observed to be scattered on the long
table, as it the bag containing the grains
had burst. Seeing inquiring looks wan
dering over the table, especially at these
sprinkled grains, the professor remarked
that they were simply a few grains of
common sense. The visitor took the lib
erty to brush ft few of them off and put
them in his pocket. One can never tell
when a graii of common sense may be
Hardly had the professor ceased speak
ing when one of his regular customers
called. He wished to procure some bitter
sarcasm. He proved to be a politician
girding up his loins for a campaign. In
putting up the packages the professor laid
stress upon taking the substance on an
emptv stomach. It/ seemed to bo in the
form of hard, cold crystals. The man
forthwith tossed some of it into his mouth.
You could hear it crunch between Ills
teeth, and that It was bitter soon showed
itself in the expression of his face. The
observer reflected that in all probability
the political air would soon be elect!*;
with hurtling darts of sarcasm; arid in
reading the press reports later on it was
plain that in his stump spec cites the man
had rhetorically torn hds political oppo
nents to she.eds. The professor explained
that there were various substances which
were useful in inducing bitter sarcasm.
Dvcn such simple things as lobster salad
or Welsh rarebit, accompanied by indi
gestion, may prove sufficient to Induce
some niter sarcasm the following day.
The politician hod hardly taken his de
parture when there entered a young lad
with a bright, intelligent face, and wear
ing his hat slightly tilted over one ear.
He steid he wanted to take something that
would make him feel grown up and Im
portant. something that would add to tils
self-appreciation, a feeling of ripe maturi
ty. In ehort, he wanted to feel like a man.
The profeesor hastened to accommodate
him. He drew out a box made of some
light, hard wood and took therefrom a
long, thin, dark-brown object evidently of
a vegetable nature. The directions were
that one end of It should be lighted ant|

sured him that it would produce the de
sired effect, although that effect might be
only temporary. There is some reason
to fear that the dose disagreed with the
poor lad, who was taken slek not long
The next caller possessed a very sanc
timonious demeanor. His hat was high,
his coat was long, his trousers were a
trifle short, and he carried an umbrella.
His nose was mantled by a slightly roseate
tinge. Wiping his handkerchief over his
classic brow he addressed the professor.
"Brother,” said he In mild accents, “I

The professor aupplied him with a liquid
which had a strong 1 and not unfamiliar
odor, and the directions were that it
might be taken with sugar, and perhaps
a little infusion of hot water. ‘The man

Although the imaginative elements were

others, a high-browed, bushy-headed for

appeared to be a writer of high-strung

great amount of imagination, and left
an order for one ton of it. Which is
about the amount required to write a
story of this kind. As the author depart
ed he was heard gently to mutter some
thing about spots on the sun and whis

But the time had now arrived for the
professor to go to his classes and take
up the lectures of the day. Accordingly
the humble student of science withdrew;
and he made certain notes of hi*, call upon
the new incumbent of the chair of tem

narrative has been gathered.

He Is the Australian (Tty Hobo, a
For several reasons Australia may be
regarded as the Ideal abode of the hobo
and the tramp, or, as the former is des
ignated in the cities, the larrikin.
The larrikin, like the kangaroo, is pe- 1
culiar to the Australian continent. In
no other country, certainly not In the
United States, would he even be permit
ted to exist. In appearance he is under
sized in stature, slight in build, and sal
low in complexion, probably owing to an
early excessive use of cigarettes. His
uttire is unique and unmistakable. He
wears a narrow brim felt hat on one side
of his head, a short Jacket reaching to
the hips, pants very tight from the waist
to the knees, but spreading out bell
shsped at tlie ankles lo the tips of his
shoes. The latter are. Invariably worn
peg topped with high heels.
In character he much resembles the
jackal. Singly a desperate coward, but
in packs or gangs as he perambulates
the sidewalks of Melbourne or Sydney,
he becomes a terror to women and chil
dren and a menace to any one Ije fancies
he can insult with impunity. He rarely
does any work, and is never found out
of the cities.
The Australian tramp much resembles
the same species in America, only instead
of "looking for work,” he generally adopts
the guise of a presieotor. With ‘'billy”
or kettle in hand he trudges from one
sheep station to another, enforcing hos
pitality by the fear that if. sueh is not
accorded a barn will be found ignited on
his departure. Undoubtedly in no country
of the world are the unemployed treat
ed with so much consideration by the au
thorities as in Australia. As the labor
vote controls the balance of political par
ties, nnd the floating population ot un
employed are workingmen, in that respect
officials are chary of saying no to a
deputalion from this class of citizens.
For instance, as has more than once
happened, if a body of unemployed should
wait upon the Minister of the Interior
with a request for free transportation on
the government railroads to some remote
district, where they assert work Is to be
found, the minister, particularly if an
election is at hand, has no other resource
but to issue the tickets. Then, If, when
the place is reached, climatic or other
conditions are not found to be as con
jectured, a pressing request for return
passes does not often meet with refusal.
For several years the unemployed of
Sydney were given work on the roads
and parks at *1.23 for n working day of
eight hours, as by law established.
