Among a large shooting party on a northern grouse moor was a certain elderly professor whose skill with hla gun was hardly equal to the profundity of his Intellect. Suddenly a heavy storm of rain came on, and as there •was no shelter on the moor tbe shooters got thoroughly drenched through. At least, nil but one suffered—the professor. He had mysteriously disappeared when the rain came on, and he did not rejoin the party until the sun was shining once more. To the amazement of the others the erudite one was as dry as a bone. The others, drenched (incl disgusted, Inquired of hlui how It was he had escaped a wetting. "Olroctly the ruin cume on," replied the professor, "1 wont oil' by myself, stripped oft" my clothing nnd sat on thorn until tho storm was over."— London Telegraph. In Bed With a Snake. For ono thing Kast Africa must have credit; snukus nrc not numerous, as they nre in the south—nt least I never have seen many. There nre pythons, but they do not appear to be dangerous. 1 shall never forget how, down In South Africa during the war, 1 once awoke and found n black mwaniba In bed with me. The snake Is absolutely deadly. It frightened me HO that after Iho whole thing WHS over I went out and was Hick. Fortunately 1 was quite Ignorant of the fact that It was under tho blankets with me and rolled out unconcernedly. Had 1 known It was there In all probability It would have struck me.—Forest and Stream. Women In Japan. Like most oriental races, tho Japanese regard women as the Inferior sex, and the Japanese woman cheerfully Indorses tho doctrine. "I once," said a globe trotter, "sat down to dinner nt a hotel In Vancouver where there was a Japanese waitress. With me nt tho table were two Canadian women; but, to my surprise, the waitress not only gavo me priority In serving the meal, but was very particular In seeing that 1 had the largest jHirtlon of everything. 1 wan rather puzzled until I remembered that In Japanese eyes I was, as a man, regarded as far more Important thun a woman anil tn-jited accordingly."

The Shrwwd Financial Methods jf the Musical Miraels. Adellnn Pat 11 never suffered from the financial timidity of a Jenny Llnd. Not only she a supreme vocalist; but, B» Colonel Mnpleson remarked, "no one ever approached her In the art of obtaining from a manager the greatest possible sum he could by any possibility contrive to pay." But the musical mlrncle wnw the spelled darling of her day, and she never failed to obtain exactly what she wanted. She was first engaged In London In 1801 by Mapleaon to sing four nights "on approval" and In case of success to obtain £40 a week. This contract was not fulfilled, however, for, being hard pressed financially, she had borrowed £50 from a rlvnl manager, and her receipt proved practically a contract. This was the beginning of a career so daw.llng that Its successive steps are simply a series of Increasing banknotes. Sn 1872 she obtained in London 200 guineas a night, since she Insisted on having more than Christine N'llsson, who was receiving £200. She sang twlcp a week. Ten years later she was given f">,0()0 n night! Her famous contract to sing In America provided that the money should be paid her at 2 o'clock on the day she sang; also a drawing rootn and sleeping car to be especially built for her, with conservatory, fernery, etc. Further, there was to be deposited to her credit $50.000 for payment of the last ten performances—Pattl's favorite device. She thus received about twenty times what Mario arid Orlsl got. Her private cnr Incidentally cost .$00.000 and contained a silver bath and gold keys to the doors, to say nothing of a $2,000 piano. Patti pave to (he manager only her voice and her costumes. Her drawing capacity Justified this. "Lucia," as an example, was sung to an average of $14,000. "Trnvl- ntn" drew more, since she sang more notes. It was a frequent occurrence among the poorer music lovers to buy a club ticket and each take turns at. hearing her for twenty minutes. If one overstayed his time he paid for the entire ticket. Some mathematicians computed by dividing the number of notes sung by the sum paid that In 'Semlramlde" Pattl received 42% cents for each note. This was found to be Just 7 1-10 cents a note more than Rossini got for writing the whole opera.— eorge Middleton in Bookman. A BEAR STORY. The Picture the Amateur Photographer Did Not Wait to Get. The best bear story I ever heard, states a writer in Recreation, was told me by an amateur prospector, who might have stepped out of a comic weekly. He had made a big trip In the Slsklyous with no weapon save a nickel plated miner's pick.. "Have you seen much game?" I asked. 'None at all," he replied In his dry falsetto. "No bear!" I exclaimed, knowing he had come right through Bear Camp. "Oh, yes," he returned, "quite so. Now that you mention It I dare say that la what It was. Didn't occur to me. you know. I was so very angry, lon't you see, I took no pains to iden- Ify the brute." "Why. what did he do to you?" "What did ho do? Why, nothing, of •oursc. Von see, (lie little begjjar ran .nid climbed up a stump. And he wouldn't come down so I could obtain i decent photograph of him. Hat up here half a day, fifty foet from the ground. Then his IC-IJM got tired hold- ug on, I imagine, for he started In to squeal. And, do you know, the brute mist have glvou me away, for pretty soon his mother, I suppose It was, ame hurry Ing up, and 1 had to clear nit. Four limes as big as ho, she was, '. assure yon." "Did you run?" I nsked, laughing. "Oh, not nt all; not at all," said he. Rut still 1 thought It best not to re- nuln." Ho paused and stroked his Uubbiy chin reflectively. "By .Jove," said he finally, "how rery Interesting! f should have thought :o photograph the old one. She looked jnlte savage, don't you know." "Such a picture would have been inlquo, to say the loast," I replied. "Quito HO," said he. Why She Was Right. Haydn had a peculiar way of determining the; time In which a piece of mi)sli' should bo sung. On one occasion H female singer In high esteem at •onrt had boon appointed to sing one f Haydn's compositions. At the re- nearsal sho and the conductor differed is to iho time, of the. music. Tho mater was to be settled by referring It to laydn himself. When called on to do•Mi' he asked the conductor If the singer was bnndsomo. "Vory," was the reply, "and a spe- ,-lal favorite with (ho prince." "Then who Is rK'ht," replied Haydn. Occasionally. | "Y<m must try to love your papa." ' said the visitor, "as much as ho loves \ you." i "Oh, 1 love him more!" replied Tommy. "IndeedV I'hiesn't your papa love '. you very much:" ! "Nut i:.U; h.
