I was riding slovly along in the San Dimas district, picking my way as best I could along the line of ruts that was called a road, when an old. man glided out of the underbrush and stopped me. He was soaking wet and had evidently been out during the entir* storm; but even the dampness of the weather did not destroy tbe smile with which his face was over-spread. "Howdy, stranger," he exclaimed, "hit's bin a rainin'!" "So I see," I answered, "and you seem to have been out in it." "Every bit of hit, stranger, hit's bit a rainin' fer four days, an' I've beer a laughin' all the time. Ye see tht joke is on the ole woman this time ,7es' before this year flood started we got ter argufyin 1 about the prospects I said hit wuz goin' ter rain, an' the ole woman said hit. wuzn't, an' pret-. ty soon this year argufyin' got sc warm thet I called fer a divisshun ol the house, an' the old woman seconded the motion an' immediately toofe the inside an' gave me the outside, an' then the flood came, an' I've been Janghin' ever since." "Is it a laughing matter to be out in the rain for four days?" "Under the circumstances hit is, stranger. Ye see thet's my ranch us yander. Wul, hit hadn't bin a rain- in' more than fifteen minutes before the chicken house went down in the wash, then the barn went, an' then the shack followed." "With your wife in if?" ""With the ole woman in hit!" h« shouted, slapping his leg with glee. "Look down yander, thar she is!" I looked in the direction he was pointing and there In the middle of thi wash was the remains of tae shach with the old woman sitting on the ridge pole, wildly waving her sunbonnet for help, while around and about her raged the torrent. "Come on down, stranger. " said the old man, "I wanter ter talk ter the ole woman." Curious to see the outcome I followed the old man down to the banls of the wash. "Hello, ole woman!" he yelled, when he got within shouting distance, "has hit bin a rainin?" • There was no answer to this, but the old woman's actions were suggestive. Throwing her sunbonnet into the flood she commenced to slide down the roof. "Holy smoke!" gasped the old man. "she's goin' ter swim ashore! Stranger, we'd better git! When the ol« woman is mad she's a holy terror, hut when she's both wet an 1 mad she's a—" The rest I failed to catch as the old man was already legging it down the road. Power of the Premi. It was in the Yildiz kiosk. The luxurious tyrant was indulging the blues by ordering massacres and assinations and was evidently in a horrible humor. When his chamberlain entered and prostrated himself the sultan growled fiercely, "Well?" "The American ambassador wishes to see you." "Tell the dog of an infidel that this is my busy day." The chamberlain sneaked out and returned a moment later with consternation on even' feature. "What now?" shrieked the sultan. "Oh, most serene majesty! thy servant has made a grievous mistake. Ii is not the American ambassador, but an American reporter.'

Stamping his foot, he called tht hideous mutes who do his bidding, and even as the reporter entered the chamberlain was led shrieking to his doom he deposited his one chair, while he its side. H« was lost for about ten minutes; perfectly oblivious to everything, save that he had a blessed consciousness of something very rapidly and agreeably replenishing his inward man. About this time the landlord came round, ejaculated: "Dollar, sir!" "A dollar!" responded the eater, "a dollar! I thought you only charged 50 cents a meal for one? Isn't that so?" "That's true," answered Meanness, "but I count your carpet-bag one, since it occupies a seat." Now the table was far from being crowded, and the gentleman expostulated; but the landlord insisted, and the dollar was reluctantly brought forth, paid over, and the receiver passed on. Our victim deliberately rose, and, opening his carpet-bag to the full extent of its wide mouth, addressed it as follows: "Carpet-bag, it seeme you are an individual, a human individual—since you eat—at least I'vs paid for your eating, and now you must eat!" Upon this he seized everything eatable, that was carriable, within reach- nuts, raisins, apples, cakes and crust pies—and, amid the roars of the 'bystanders, the delight of his brother- passengers and the discomfiture of the landlord, phlegmatically went out and took his seat in the cars. He said he had secured provisions enough to' last him to New York, after a bountiful supply had 'ieen served out in the cars. There was at least $5 worth in the bag, upon which the landlord realized nothing in the way of profit. the -vessel; It may be from nve to ten inches. . The primary purpose of this chamber around the smokestack is fo afford ventilation for the engine room and the stoke hole. In at least one modern passenger ship ventilating pipes from the passenger quarters have been carried to these chambers. Incidentally the space between the shells belps to keep tie stack sightly, for thus constructed, the chimney is cooler on the outside than It would otherwise be, and so it holds paint the better. The Fountain of Ix>ve. Mr. William Waldorf Astor's new fountain for Cliveden, his estate near, London, is the largest private fountain, of the kind in the world. It -is gorgeous and of enormous expense, and the only fountain which rivals it in size and appearance is that of Emperor William in Berlin, the next largest of the kind being at Moscow. Mr. Astor, who expects that this fountain will astoaish the people when it is exhibited, has called it "The Fountain of Love." The shell alone weighs between sixty and seventy tons. This gigantic shell is made of nine pieces of the finest Sienna marble, and is light brown in color, but the huge blocks have been sc skillfully put together that it is almost impossible to 5ee the joins. The nine pieces of Sienna marhle out of ^hiei> the shell is made are the largest blocks of Sienna marble ever taken out of Italy. Like large cut diamonds, they represent an enormous waste of 'material. The fountain in its architectural features represents the development of one idea. It is practically simple and ievoid of ornate carving, excepting in the three groups. GOU> DUST WASHING POWDER Fire Escape Too Handy. A theatrical friend of mine registered at a hotel in a 'big Pennsylvania town once earlier in the season. "Have you a good room?" he asked the clerk. "First-class," said the clerk. I "On what floor?" "Fourth." "Is there a fire escape?" asked the actor, who is nervous about fires. "Yep," answered the clerk. "Well," said the actor, "give me a room right next to the fire -scape." The clerk looked at him closely. "Actor, ain't you?" he asked. "I am," returned the player, proudly. The clerk's look took on a sagacity born of bitter experience. "You don't get no room near a fire escape," said he. "Not on your life, you don't." A >~ew V*e For tlie Telpplioiie. During the early part of a dinner recently given in Washington, the guest of honor, a young married woman who is the proud mother of two very small boys, suddenly paused, with a startled look, in tbe midst of an animated conversation with her host, and cried: "There, if I didn't forget those boys again! Have you a telephone in the house, and may I use it?" Her host conducted her to the telephone, and presently she returned. "I do hope you will pardon me," she said; "but you see, I always have Georgie and Eddie say their prayers to me before they go to sleep. In the hurry of getting off, I forgot it to-night, so I have just called up their nurse. She brought the children to the 'phone, and they have just said their prayers over the wire, so my.niind i,« relieved." THE STEAMSHIP'S CHIMNEY. A PHthc'tlc Incident. "Give me a chancel" It is in a gaudy saloon on that picturesque thoroughfare, the Bowery- The hour is late, but a lavish combination of mirrors and electric lights fills the place with a dazzling radiance "Give me a chance!" As the clear feminine tones ring through the smoke-laden air the tough-looking customers ranged in front of the bar temporarily withdraw their attentioa from the beverages thej' are consuming, and with vulgar curiosity turn their unsteady gaze in the direction from which the voice proceeds. The speaker flushes painfully at finding herself the target for so many bleary eyes. She is little more than a child in years, in spite of the pinched and prematurely old expression of her fac«. But with an effort she restrains h«r impulse to fly from their insolent scrutiny, and with a quivering lip once more repeats her appeal to the man. behind the bar: "Please give me a chance!" "Aw, go chase yerself!" is the brutal retort of the individual addressed. "Youse don't git no chanst onless yar coughs up yer half dollar like de rest. I ain't organinn' dis raffle fer m« ] health, an' don't youse fergit it'" The stroller along the wharves who Bhould see rising from the smokestack of a big steamer a small, and at the start, perfectly defined, column of emofee, which seemed to come from a small smokepipe within the big one, might wonder if the great smokestack was filled with smaller stacks, one for each boiler. As a matter of fact it is pot so filled; but there is within it one smaller smoke pipe, called the donkey stack, which is the chimney for the boiler of the donkey engine, which is used when the vessel is in port in hoisting cargo in and out. It is from this pipe that the small column of smoke is seen to issue. The donkey stack is placed sometimes against the forward inner side of the big stack, sometimes against the after inner side. It may be a 'complete pipe, or it may be formed of iron 1 in the shape of half a pipe, with flanges riveted to the main pipe. If a single one of the larger boilers were used, as it might be when the ship is in port, it might be connected with the donkey stack, but in their regular and common arrangement and use the uptakes of all these boilers run Into the great chimney, whose whole interior is open, except for the braces running across it to strengthen and support it.

FAIRBANK COMPANY, Chioa-o. St- Louis. New Vork. Boston. Philadelphia. Early Caricaturists and the Wheel. "The Story of the Wheel" is the title of aii article by Frank H. Vi/etelly iu St. Nicholas. The author says of the early form of the bicycle known as the draisine: It is claimed by souio writers tbat the absurd drawings made by the artist Cruiksbank, poking fnu at tbe draisine, or the "hobby liorse, "as the Kuglish called it, did much to prevent any prosress. and, in fact, aii American writer states that his vehicle was "killed" thereby in England iu 1SJS. In the year following, however, he says that it was introduced into. the Uaited States. Notwithstanding the fnu made of it, tbe hobby horso became very popular with very fashionable London. Among the rich it was considered quice tbe correct thing to devote some hours daily to so pleasant a pastime as"drais- ining," and it was no uncommon thing to find a bevy of girls, with their attendants aud a crowd of young dandies, gatherod together at Johnson's Riding academy iii Goldau square, eager to prove their skill upon the draisiue, the idol of the, hour. _____ •me caricatures of Crnikshank and others, though at first they discouraged a pastime that had come to stay, failed in tha long run to have any but a good effect on tbe new industry. Bicycle Colony. There is a uovei movement oa foot in Philadelphia GO establish a cyclists' colony just outside the city limits. It ia said that tho executors of an estate have offered to lease free .of charge a large, number of acres to the -wheelmen providing they agree to keep it in good condition and build npon it. The plan of those behind the movement is to have the more prominent clnbs/sneh as comprise the Associated Cycling Clube of Philadelphia, to build country clubhouses on the laud in-qnestion. 1898 IAT, 189 So. 1 MR. ASTOR'S QCAKTKK MII.J.IOX Group 1.—The first group of figures which forms a part of this fountain is on the end of the shell nearest the entrance gates. This group, made of the finest and whitest Sicilian marble, consists of the heroic sized figure of a woman with a Cupid. The right hand of the figure is outstretched. In it she holds over the basin by the handle a small Greek vase, from which the water pours. Her left hand falls by her side. Standing at her left side is a figure of,a little Cupid, naked, with wings, looking up into her face. The work is pronounced by sculptors to be surpassingly- beautiful. Group 2.—This consists of a woman and a Cupid, both standing and pledging each other in drinking cups. The figure's are large and of the finest Sicilian marble. Group 3.—This group consists of a woman leaning back, -with a Cupid bending over her from a rock. There is no fountain in England ri- valling this one of Mr. Astor's in size and beauty, and it is even said by architects, that as a work of art, and considering its size, it is the finest fountain in the world. This fountain has already cost, according to moderate estimates, a great deal more than fifty thousand pounds. UNPARDONABLE OFFENCE. A Tnle of the Klondike nnd of Tliiii(C» More Precious Than Gold. "W-W-What d-do you want?" The speaker is Mr. John Doem, the Klondike coal merchant, and his inquiry is addressed to the stern-faced man at his bedside who has just awakened him from a pleasant dream. "I wan-; you!" is the blunt reply. •And you'd better hustle into yer clothes, or my friends, who are waitin' outside will get impatient!" There is something in the tone of the stranger, to say nothing of the suggestive way in which he handles his six- shooter—that discourages further questioning. So as quickly as his shaken nerves will allow the coal merchant dresses himself and follows, the visitor downstairs. When he emerges into the street, his fears are redoubled. By the faint gray light of the dawn h« perceives that a large crowd has Bur- rounded his house. And to judge from the fierce yells with which they greet his appearance, their errand is not exactly a peaceable one. But the vender of black diamonds has little time for-speculation. In the twinkling of an eye he is seized, tightly bound and dragged to a near-fcy tree. Then, as the ringleader conies forward with a rope, the ihuddering captiv« recognizes him as a customer of the day before. "Mercy!" be implores. Bwt the leader's only reply is a snarl of rage- In desperation the terrified man appeals to the crowd. "Gentlemen," he cries, the tears rolling down his cheeks, "surely yon ain't a-goin' to -teic a feller citizen'* lif* without givin* him a chance to say a word fer hisself! My weights hae all bin tested by the Government, and it they happen to be short—which, I truly hope they ain't—why, it's no fault of inine." "It is not only a question, of short weight," rejoins tie leader savagely. "Had you confined your cheating to that, we might have overlooked it Bat no mercy can be shown a man who adulterates mis coal painted black!" .
