"A friend of mine IUIH gained <-on- slderoble notoriety among the boys," 80Id a drummer, "on account of his antipathy for many of the Inhabitants to be found hi the holels of many of the small country towns. Many a time he has been known to leave his bed In the middle of the ulg'.il to search for more comfortable and agreeable quarters. Recently he landed at n small town. 1 'happened to he there that flight, and when I saw him enter f Immediately scented trouble. Thnt place was known for the droves of rats which swarmed, about the premises, and If there was anything my friend abhorred It was a rat. Well, he got his room. I was sitting In the lobby reading about an hour after he had retired wUeu suddenly I was startled by a sudden racket on the upper lloor. It was fallowed a few seconds later by my friend, his clothes under his arm, making « hurried exit from his room. Itiinnlng up to the hotel clerk, he expostulated excitedly against the rats. "'They ran all over the bed and nil over the floor. Finally I tried to shoo them out. I turned on the light, and there were two big ones In the center of the lloor lighting like tigers.'

"Kver.v piano factory," said a piano manufacturer, "employs what we piano men cull a 'scale.' It would be too long for me to explain to yon all about It, but lu piano making the 'scale' is the man who after all else has U*cu done Imparts to the piano Its son!. "I cannot tell you how they do It. They do not know themselves, and no man can (each another. It Is bom, like all art. The 'scales' are very few and hard to ni-i, and we pay them handsome -wages. Mnt (hey are as difficult to manage as the grc;i.i tenors of grand opera and as sensitive as women. I.iUt; all artists, they are forever squabbling among themselves about little things, and. MS you may guess, jealousy is their besetting evil. "Hut I liavt- not yet explained what the 'scale' does. When a piano Is all strung and tuned and ready to leave the factory, die 'scale' sit* down to it Jill alone and screws It to pilch. His ear Is so true, his hand so tine and his sense df the lea-ions for sound is so delicate and < \qulsiie that when he has finished hi.- work that which was a mciv box ce-.naining strings has become a voire thai e-in sini: if von know how to make it sing The 'scale' ha* given It a soul a part of his own soul." —New York World. i * * * * # * * W Co vina National Bank AND YOUR SAVINGS ACCOUNT * # # * # * # * * * * * * # # * * IN THE * * * * * * *• * He * * * * * United States Savings Bank f Will give you entire satisfaction.
