Turkith Parrltry. Ti/rklsh bonjesbobs are simply a tut plate of iron with a bole In the middle. In hl» volume of "Personal Adventures" Colonel J. P. KobertBon d«- flcribes the extraordinary method of preparing the borae to lx» short.

Th»s Is put over the horse's head after the manner of a home collar, the knot resting on the horse's chest Then the two ends of rope are brought between his logs. Each rope, then Inken by a man, IB liltdiwl on to the fetlocks of his hind legs and brought through the loop In front; then j by n hard, steady pull the hind legs are | drawn up to the fore legs, and the horse falls heavily on hl» side. All four feet are then fled together by the fetlocks, tlie horse IH propped up on his back, and the furrier alts quietly down beside him, takes off all the old shoes and puts on new. When the work Is finished the horse Is untied and allowed to get up. Crab Hat 2,000,000 Joint*.

"Did you ever know," said I ho hypnotist as he p!uyed with a curious, glittering hypnotlx.lng machine of crystal and silver, "did you ever know that hypnotism Is practiced among insects?" "No." "Well, It Is a fact. A queen bee can hypnotl/.o her whole hive whenever Bho wants to. Hhe makes a curious humming sound, and wlllilu a moment or two overy boo in the colony, falls Into a hypnotic trance. "The death's head hawk moth is itlnu a hypnotist of groat power. This creature, indeed, makes Us living out of hypnotism. Knlerlug a hive, It: makes a Hound not unlike the queen bee's note, nnd, the bees Immediately sinking Into slumber, the. moth proceeds to plunder at Its leisure."--New Orleans Tlnuw I)emocr;it.

A Mmltaon avenue pastor who tfke* to fo* first In the eyes, oars and hcartii of bis con#reffflMon had occasion to dlscn»s seriously with his curate one of that young man's "hnbltii." "There have lx>en complaints," said the pastor severely, "that you talk too much. Not fcoastp, understand—oh, no, nothing of that sort—but certain parishioners have found you loquacious— long winded, one might say. At a christening, at a wedding, at a fnnornl or at any little meeting over which you may be called to preside you talk much more than Is nocoHsnry. That may in time become a K«;rloiis fnult. There are certain prescribed forms for those occasions, yon know. Now, If you would only keep your discourse down to the proper length"The curate braced Ulm«e!f for fight. "I could keep inyBcIf down," he Interrupted, "If I was allowed to talk n IHHo some place else. The trouble Is I'm seething with a certain amount of talk that I've got to got rid of. If I wns allowed to preach a regular sermon once lu awhile that might relieve the strain, but as I am denied thnt outlet I have to selxe all those other opportunities and deliver little sermons then. The only way to keep a curate or anybody else from talking too much when he shouldn't talk Is to let him talk some when he has a right to talk.' "I>ear me!" said the pasjor mildly.
