Eighteen wom- f .cn were chattering like magpies.

"Attention!" cried the hostess, and xvil.h dlniculty snifjotliJng remotely re- ruindi.'ig one of silence was secured, '"'I'ltf ni-xt thing on the programme is .sri-:NT)Tlli:iPT— who •-O consult tho oracle. \ow 'have her fortune; told first?" Out of the buzzing, babbling and babel, sounded the clear voice of the •queen of the pnrly: "Oh, ICate, you 'must tell mine because you know I sail for ftnglaml in three, days. I must Icnow my fate, but I tell you before- 'Jutnd I will not take anything less thii -n lord or a — well, maybe a lieutenant." "Ky your feet," proclaimed the oracle, "i will rend your fortune from your bare feet." .Ah! and this queer dove party fell to >:ooing us if confronted with a lot of HjtUl but delightful .sorts of' oats ami •corn.

Now g-ct thce to thy resting place.'' This was done amid ghostly gurglings from her sixteen companions. The next foot had prominent ankle bone. 1 ?. "You are masculine to i'i certain degree in your tastes." pronounced the foot reader. "You like tailor-made suits, you wear the white shirt and four-in-hand tic." An audible giggle . interrupted the oracle. "Your ankle is i large, you come from a warlike family, more brave than aristocratic; your heel . is narrow and the hollow behind the | ankle bone is exceedingly deep, indi- ; catkig that your fortunes will begrea> ly impaired by matrimony." A howl of ! delight signified that the seeress had 1 struck some fa.ct. "Your foot is long, broad and rather flat; you will never get into so tight a place that you cannot get out with ease. I note, too, that you will enjoy better fortune in old age than in youth. As you press your foot duwu I see that the toes are elastic, and as you move the first, second and third together they display Ihc cords to the ankle bone which denotes that you will be master of whatever yon undertake and always put through your undertakings. The interest became greater and the third foot was planted for inspection. "Your health is not good because there is a damp coldness about the llcsh. The many blue veins that stand out so prominently mark you as very nervous and on the voi-ge of prostration. Your work is mental, and by your toes clinging so closely together when you step with full force on tho floor I know that your tastes are artistic and you WIMV never meaut to do physical hibor. You will make a good wife fora rich man, but you have more sentiment than judgment and will be inclined to dress your children more in a dainty, pretty \v;-.y than warmly and comfortably. The star on the big toe nail proclaims that you will be a mother before you are twenty-live." Yells of delight echoed through the room. The next feet presented looked as soft and iKitiu'ai in outline ris a child's. "You have a hobby," said the oracle, "and that hobby is your feet. You never \\var ready-made shoes. You are not vain enough to wear pointed toes if they pinch 3'our feet, but us they ure broad and 'pudgy' I know you ,'ire scientific more than artistic, and the extreme care you have taken of your feet points to the fact that you possess per-"——"•"••.• tc v.-iii where a thousand tnan the left like these." pointing- to two feet near her, "it denotes that some good angel is ever watching over you.

Spook like, with hidden faces they arranged themselves about 'tho room and awaited their turn to be 'presented to the grand oracle of fate. "Como forth," tho priestess cried, •motioning to the nearest figure; "lift thy robe and show thy feet." The ob- jcet moved, niul, ns if forcplanned, the ••other sixteen bodies swayed back and •^orth und groaned dismally, ending 1 nvith a wail that sent the coki chills irunninR- up nnd down the back bone. Dainty feet they were, small rounded ''iicels, p'inU toes and hig-h insteps, but: ""Ah mo," sifrhcd tho oracle, "you aro "vain; you nrc fond of dress and your '.pride haw made you suffer; you will • •spend your last penny for pretty thing's •nnd sneritice your health for an ts.ll- • nipht dunce." Wails came from tho v cvhitc wraiths nnd the unfortunate one • so"bbed bitterly. "Your little too is \ptiNhcd over by tight 'shoes until it •overlaps the third toe. And the big 1 toe 'lias made i\'regular Cinderella out • of tho first toe and tho joint stands up, ;.showing 1 your' shoes have been too : short. In this lies vnnity nnd great < co'arag i e." i , I The sots ceased and tho wailing died = nway with a joyous "oh!" "From the top of tho little too to tho «first. joint of the bip toe there is great •width, signifying- that you are fond of •walking and athletic exercises, here you will enjoy {rood health. The pink coloring- on the great too joint declares io me that a stxsrct enemy is now cir- ••cumventing-theo." The draped listen- •crs with, one accord arose and made as if to kill an unseen thing, but a motion of the oracle's hand ordered them bade -io their former positions. "The cords arc distinctly defined. womn full, i ou will got t,ne man you love and tho tiny nail on the little too sets the date at the ag-e of thirty-one." The next foot when placed upon tho floor 'loft a hollow sufficiently largo beneath it to permit of tho hand slipping under. "You are high-tempered; doto greatly ou ancestry; are inclined to bo over-sensitive; consequently at times you aro very unhappy without cause. You aro high-strung, well-bred and aro born to grace society. You will marry a man much older than yourself and travel in many lands." The draped figure that came next was timid nnd hesitated be-fore exhibiting the foot. It was extremely long, slender, flut and with a well-turned ankle. "Yon are inclined to literature," said the oracle; "but the love of admiration and the attention of society drifts you from your purpose. A person with such a foot must necessarily be courted, petted and highly esteemed. Success will come to you through favorit- i.>;•.'. • liile others with perhaps superior tuleiilM will fail. You aro like tho humming bird that in its anxiety to enjoy all the good things offered it allows to slip by unheeded the greatest opportunities. You will have many propositions of marriage, but you will sail over tho briny ocean and there find your loige lord." "When?" questioned a faint voice, and the answer: "Sometime between thirty and thirty-five years of age,' acted like a cyclone. "In the choice of partners," said tho oracle to the next believer ia fate, "your mind will be guided by prudence and not by beauty; this is shown by the little toe hiding its head under r.io third toe. If when your foot is flat ou .he ground you cannot see all tho nails at once it shows you are cautious."' I Cere those waiting to have their fortunes told grew rustless, feet were uncovered and with impatience planted before the oracle. In pantomime the wraiths convoyed the fact that they would not wait; they must know their fate. So the oracle arose from her seat of honor and kneeling down pointed to such and such indications, comparing this foot with that, and saying: "Domestic comfort will come to anybody who has the second toe humped up above all the rest, at the same time escaping a corn.

Here is a short description of a, f»u- of the curiosities which it contains, and it few sketches of t-he artful dodges of sniu"'- frlers. Going up stairs we came to perhaps the most interesting part of the whole tour—the Smuggling museum. "There, sir," said the little showman, a dry, witty pc-rson, who would mnke his fortune upon the stage, as he took clown a harmless-looking book nod put it under his arm. ''there ain't much tho matter with that, is there?" I remarked that it looked innocent enough in ;iil conscience, for, indeed, if the truth miibt bo spoken, it was to all appearance an ordinary Uiblo. "U'ei!, sir. thai was carried by ;i gent got up as a Metlioily preacher. One duy he was caught with tins under his ;irm, and now look, sir." I dill, and lo! it was quite hollow, and filled, crammed with tobacco, A loaf of bread was then placed in my hands. "'Ave a. slice, sir?" a>ked the small man. Carefully removing the top of it, my eieenjiiL- showed me that it was hollowed most carefully • nit. and that it was full of the best cigars. I kicked my foot against a log of wood that was lying at my feet, ami I wninletvd that so shabby an article should be lying about in a government DllilH'. "There you are, sir, exactly what them revenue ofticers kept a-iioin' of aboard o" some o' the ships they was nn. Ouo day limy diskiver tho ordinary-looking bit 0* wood lyin'careless like jibniiL the dock was holler-, and they looks inside aud finds it full o' cut cuvendish. lint it was u clever dodge, and no one would think' it was anything-else but a more innocent bit o' timber." Another book" had a bottle of brandy carefully and skillfully iixed inside ol it. A hollow concertina was probably u source of discord between its owner and the discoverers of the improper use to which ;t had been put. For, instead of being full of the very spirits of harmony, it was found to have been a receptacle for very different kinds of spirits indeed. Thou there was a shirt, crammed with pockets, and in which had been stored away not less than one hundred and fifty watches. The man who wore this.was unable to sit or lie in it, and throughout the whole voyage, presumably a short one, he had to stand the whole time; but on one occasion, having been delayed in a fog and beinjr thus compolcd to remain upon his feet for seventy long, weary hours, he fainted dead away when land was reached, and so fell into the clutches of the lynx-eyed officers of the revenue. A bit. of coal seemed to be like Ctesar's wife, absolutely above suspicion, but, tossed cnrelcssly as it was upon the top of a whole ton of Welsh steam coal, it was yet discovered to have been but an ignominious sham, and hollowed out and full of cigars and tobacco.—Washington Budget. SEA HORSES IN GOTffiaDC Gentle Little Creatures in the Castle Garden Aquarium. They Bi-ar a Striking Hc«cuil>lanc« to riM — Something About TJiclr Mode of Living— Arc 1 Fond of Iluman Company, Among' the wonderful tilings to be exhibited at the aquarmrn in Castle Garden at its opening- will be the sea horses. It may bo that to some persons they will be disappointing in size. In reality the sea horse seldom exceeds six inches in length and one so long u-ould be rather unusual. The single sea horse pictured here measures about Qve and a quarter inches in length. There are in the aquarium t\vo which each approximate six inches, besides others smaller. The .sea horse is found in many waters, .says a writer in the New York Sun. Perhaps he roost abounds in the Mediterranean. The little creatures are not unusuul upon this coast, though they are not now so common as formerly. They are found, of smaller size, in the Hudson river, in the lower bay. and on the adjacent fishing: banks. Those here depicted were all taken from the bay or the banks. Sea horses are often caught in the nets of fishermen, who find them with their tails around cords in the nets. They are often pulled up at the end of a fishing line on grass sea weed, in which their tails may be caught, a.nd they arc .sometimes taken ten or fifteen miles from shore. Three of the sea horses at the aquarium were caught in this manlier from fishing steamers. The sea horse has the head, neck and chest of a horse, and a prehensile tail. He has on his head two iins, like cars, which spread out like little fans', and lie lias one large iin on his back. Familiar as one may have been with the appearance of the sea horse through the medium of pictures, one is almost certain to lincl the creature's resemblance', to a horse much mure Striking l,h;i!i was ex-peeled. There, is about him tit times a pride of bearing that is utterly unlike anything associated with the idea of a fish, and which can be likened only to the prom! mien of a young stallion. The sea horse by no means always presents nride in his port; indeed, he is likely to display such a degree OL alertness only when hungry, lie is never fierce, and when he FRECKLES! PIMPLES!

You Can Not AIwiiVR Tell. "How deceitful 'appearances are, sometimes," says a well-known Maine physician, commenting on n little experience of his. "We see men with fine, large, well-painted buildings on their farms and are apt to think they ure men with plenty of means who mil pny cash down for what they get, but often we are mistaken in this notion, for in too many instances the big buildings represent an investment of borrowed money that is like a millstone round the farmer's neck. But what I was going to tell you was not of this nature—in fact, just the opposite. A year or so ngo I was sent for to visit a patient some thirty miles away, and when I got there the premises were so run down and rickety that my son, who was with me, said, when we drove into his yard: 'Well, father, I guess we've got our trouble for our pains to-day. Xo fee this time, if I am any judge.' Everything around the place was so scant and shabby I would not have given much for my chances of pay. My visit over, I was about to put on my overcoat to depart, when the man said: 'Hold on, doctor, I haven't paid you yet. What's the bill?' I was surprised at his honest manner and named the amount, when he ran his hand into a poc.ket of his r&crged trousers and pulled out a roll of bills that made iny eyes stick out He certainly held enough cash right there to buy one of the best farms in town."—Lewiston Journal. n 4V !n-iv ilio Jlosqnlh C»llslll<TPll f SI-fill. An English teacher in a Japanese scliool discovered, by (jiving out .subjects for composition, that tho pupils luii'l been trained to fiiul :i moral in everything, animate a;>d inanimate. .Mr. IIearn, in his "(Jliinpsos of 1,'nfa- rniliar .lapan,"gives a few specimens of the moral ideas evoked from (he native students by subjects for ICnglish composition. One boy thus wrote on "Mosquitoes:" "On summer nights we hear the sound of faint voices, and little things Come anil sting our bodies very violently. \Vc call them k:v—in Bullish •mosquitoes.' I think the stinff is useful for us, because if we be^iu to sleep, the ka eliiill come and stinff ns, ulterinff ;i small voice: then we shall be briuffed back to study by the stinff." To another pupil was assigned the botan (Japanese peony) for a composition, and he wrote: "The botan is large nnd beautiful to see; but it has a disagreeable smell. This should make us remember that what is only outwardly beautiful in human society should not attract us. To be attracted by beauty only may lead us into fearful and fata! misfortune."

Co.tt of Fattening Lam Of. Lambs 10 days old \vcre fed at the Wisconsin station on cow's milk from a bottle. The feeding lasted throe weeks. The cost per 100 pounds of gain during this time, with milk at i'.0 cents per ]00 pounds, was S3.47. They were then changed to sweet skim milk, oats, green clover, und green fodder corn, and fed Tor four weeks. Valuing skim milk at S3 cents per 100 pounds, oats at. iG cents per bushel, etc., the food per 100 pounds of gain cost S3.30. From that time on the cost gradually increased with the weight of the lambs and the amount of grain they required, until, when five months old. the cost was $4.50 per 100 pounds of gain. Compared with pigs the lambs did exceedingly wel!. boih Ln cost of food a.ri'1 in gain. CERTAINLY the suggestion need not be made that a leaky roof on any building ought to receive immediate attention. has been well fed he is slow of movement and gentle in manner. His prevailing mood is one of gentleness, and he is pretty sure to inspire affection in those who see him often or have much to do with him. Toward his own kind he is affectionate. So far as they have been observed in the aquarium the creatures never fight. Sometimes two of them will look the tips of their tails together and swim breast and breast like a team. Again, one win curl the end of his tail around the neck of another, and then the other, with seeming petulance, will pull his head away. The glass tanks in which the seahorses at the aquarium are kept are covered at the bottom with pebbles and aro also provided with fragments from a mass of serpula tubes. Hanging floating in the water is sea lettuce, of a beautiful green; it is said that the sea lettuce nowhere else reaches the perfection that it does in the waters hereabouts. Pretty as it is to look at, the- primary purpose of the sea lettuce in the tanks is to produce natural aeration. The serpula is a little bit of a snake, a wormlike animal from an inch to six inches in length, and as thick as a darning-needle, which lives at the bottom in salt water and builds a tube- like sllell around itself. These tubes curve and twist and cluster in masses that sometimes run together, covering acres upon the bottom. There is found on the mass of serpula tubes minuto Crustacea, upon which the sea horse feeds, and that is why the fragments of serpula are placed in the tanks. The sea horse very rarely eats a ser- pula. One might lift its head up out of its tube close by a sea horse and yet remain undisturbed. But the sea horse does eat them sometimes, as was seen the other day at the aquarium, when a sea horse seized the end of a projecting serpula in his mouth, wrapped his prehensile tail around a stone and backed, pulling the serpula out of its tube. The serpula apparently held back and clung to its tube all it could, but the sea horse pulled it clear and proceeded to slowly cat it. Other food is "givca to the sea horses at the aquarium regularly daily. The sea horse is rather delicate in captivity, and it has to be looked after carefully. The largest of those at the aquarium have now been there something more than two months. They have not grown perceptibly in length, though they do appear to have gained flesh. They are tame, and seem to recognize -ic person who feeds them regularly. The sea horses' tanks are upon one side of the room, the doors of which arc upon the opposite side- In the morning, when the first man enters, the sea horses all come to the side of their tanks-toward the door. It may be that the.T are simply lookuiir, for food. Knew IIIn At the session of the school for noncommissioned onlcers of one of the companies stationed at Fort Wayne, the following question was asked of Sergeant : "What is strategy? Give me an instance of it." After studying for a moment or two, the sergeant gave the reply "When in battle, and you are out of ammunition and don't want the enemy to Unow it, it is good strategy in keep right on firing."
