"Giants?" said the old circus man. "Oh, yes, we've had some big men in the show at one time and another. One of the biggest we ever had used to comb his hair with a section of a picket fence. That was part of the street show when we made the parade in a town. Usually we had an arrangement in. advance with the owner of the fence, and had a panel loosened ao that the giant wouldn't wreck too much of the fence in picking up the part he wanted to use. When the show came along to this spot the giant would step up to the fence, take off his hat, and pick up the piece of fence—it always looked as If he had tremendous strength, too—and raise it up and comb hie hair with it. And then he would put the big comb down again and put on his hat and move on. This always tickled th» people immensely. And he certainly was a big man, sure; but wa had a bigger man once. I wouldn't dare tell you how big this other man was, because you wouldn't believe It." —New York Sun. Train* Bui, by Centred TUn* i« roi, L.OWI : • Pail7, t Dfcllr i «xo«pt Sunday.

Any one who has even glanced at the foot of an elephant must be aware that It is a ponderous piece of anatomy, but its actual size is best Illustrated by an anecdote. Two men in the Central Park Zoo were speaking on this subject, a.nd one of them thought the circumference Of the foot must measure at least four feet. His friend laughed at this, but ths younger man, after a second timo gauging the size. Insisted that bis guess was correct. Nonsense — Quite impossible!" exclaimed his friend. And then, as the younger man still claimed that he was right, they laid a •wager and referred the matter to the keeper. "What is the circumference of the •WASHDAT. ounces of food is of far more acconat in, the orient than hours of what we are pleased to call precious time. Consequently the economy of that portion of thf! earth's globe differs very materially from onrs. Fuel and certain food supplies have beon scarce and dear at times, and the Japanese cook has learned that these commodities must be made (;o go as far as possible •without considering time and labor, which have up to the present been the cheapest things in the island empire. Of furnittuu such as Europeans nse the Japanese have no need. They lay their feet under their bodies and make a chair of their heels. They place a thinly wadded circular cushion about three feec in diameter on the white mat- fced floor aud by a dexterous movement of the feel; they squat pi limply in the middleof it. These cushions are covered •with cotton, grasscloth or silk, accord- ins to the wealth of the family. The Japanese sleep on heavy wadded comforts called futons. These are laid on' the floor of the coolest room in snm- mer and the -warmest in winter. They nse no sheets, simply covering themselves with more futons as the weather grows colder. In the depth of winter they pnt on over their other clothing a huge kimono, thickly wadded, having velvet collar and cuffs. Mosquitoes are so troublesome in summer that all must sleep under a net. In ;.be homes of the poorer class there often is bnt one, which is hung from the four corners of the room. Under this the whole family sleep, and sometimes the servants as well. In the morning they iterally obey the injunction to take up heir beds and walk. The futons are folded and laid away in one of the many closets behind the sliding screens. The pillow of the orient is oddly f£!cugh a neck rest instead of a head rest. That of Japan is an oblong wood- bronze or iron bowl or a wooden bos liaed with fire proof clay along the margin, half filled with wood ashes, with a few glowing embers in the center. A ronnd clay or iron ring with three legs is placed over the coals and the kettle or satjcepan set on this. Small utensils and few of them, bnt the mar- Tel is how they manage to accomplish BO much with such primitive methods. The family washing is a simple affair. The kimonos are as a rule ripped apart, the long breadths washed in cold water, stretched en boards, which are set up in the stm, to dry. Kimonos are made of 13 inch wide goods woven for the purpose. They are sewed together with coarse darning cotton and long basting stitches, so that ripping a garment to pieces and putting ic together again is not tba labor it would seem. Most of the native cottons have a rough snrface, so that when dry they really need no ironing, particularly if they have been properly stretched and fastened to the boards. IIAURA B. GOLD DUST WASHING POWDER NEW ••-•r- -~-TTT*T7i^;rt, : ---- : ^;^^^ DECORATIVE HINTS. How u> Daintily and Inexpensively For- nfitlt » Bedroom. Many charming new designs in wall papers, curtains and carpets, as well as many novel ideas in decoration, have been brought oat this season to aid the housewife in making her home bright and attractive. The new wall papers are especially artistic, both in coloring and design. Probably the prettiest is the flower series for bedrooms, showing roses, violets, daisies, chrysanthemums, cornflowers, poppies and fruit blooms in conventional and realistic treatment. For drapery there are chintzes and cre- tonnei; matching the papers. They cost but little morft than silkoiine and are more satisfactory, as they do not get stringy or hold the dust as thin, loose meshed fabrics. Then, too, they can be kept fresh and crisp, as they launder perfectly. A dainty and inexpensive bedroom ;jnst finished is a good example of what may be accomplished with simple materials. This room has a cold northern light, so warm, clear yellow and forest green were chosen to brighten it up. A good quality of wall paper was bought, as the most pleasing effects of decoration are marred if the paper is crude in de-, sign. This paper is cream, with faint greenish silver stripes, the space between them powdered with tiny bunches of yellow daisies. Green ribbons and small wreaths of daisies repeat the colors in the frieze, while the ceiling las single daisies scattered over it. Two straight back wooden settles and a table were added to the light oak set. The lornittire and woodwork were given on bos,- cushioned with a few sheets of Kof t paper. There are smalll drawers un- jlerueath where combs, brushes and otb- fore toot of that big elepbant?" they |'er necessary toilet articles are kept, asked.

"Will you be so good as to measure It?" asked the amazed visitor. And the keeper got a long cord and went in beside the monster, Ba;:zle, who stands eight feet five inches! in height. "Of course I measure when the animal is standing squarely on all fours," he said. "If I were to take the foot up from the floor, it would not ba quite so large; a small part of that size is caused by the spreading ovit oC the soft matter of the foot by the pressure of the animal's own weight." He drew the cord around the monster's foot, held it up, and measured it with a tape line. The figures showed four feet two inches.

An Extraordinary F«*rl. The most extraordinary pearj of th« world is known as the "Southern Cross." It consists of a srroup of nin» pearls naturally grown together in so regular a manner as to form an almost perfect Latin cross. Seven of them compose the shaft, which measures an inch and a half in length, the two arms of the cross are formed by one pearl on each side. All the pearls are of fine lustre. The astonishing freak was discovered by a man named Clark, whiJt pearl-fishing in Western Australia. He regarded it as a miracle, and entertaining a superstitious dread of it. ie buried it. In 1874 it was dug up again, and since then it has changed hands many times. Its value is said to be £10,000. How It chanced that these pearls were grouped togsther in :such a manner no one has as ysi been sible to explain satisfactorily. It has been suggested that a fragment of serrated sea•weed may have got into the shell of the oyster, and that the succession of teeth along the margin of tie front may have caused th« deposition of nacre at regular Interval!, so as to form a string of pearl* In a sitrilght M,n». The cross waa fonnd In the shell of the mollusc, as it WM UUcei; from 1 Jits native element ' ends, or of porpflnii! and cor.rse clay. Japanese meals are in truth and verity "movable feasts." Tbe universal custom is to use individual rabies as well as dishes, each person being served quite separately from the others. No matter how many servants aru kept the wife as R rule waits upon her hnstiand and does uot begin her meal tiutil he lias finished his. The tables are low, bread stools with more 1 nr less elaborately carved legs. Thou- most commonly seen are round lacquered trays, with fee::, called ozeu. Upon these are set all the courses in turn, save the saki bottle and rice bowl. The wine is handed roundl at tbe beginning of the meal, but the rice is reserved for the last course. It is placed on the floor in the midst of tbe company, and helps himself as he desires. Saki, which is a fermented liqnor made of rice, is drunk warm and tastes like flat sherry. The saki bottles and SLEEPrXG. cups are always the most ornamental of the household china. It is the office of the daughter of the house to serve the saki and to see that her father's cup is never empty. Fish is the chief anicle of diet in Japan. Some of them are eaten not only raw, bnt alive, which, simplifies the preparations for dinner very materially. Other fish are often served cold, and many of their vegetables are prepared and pickled to last for several days. Bread they know not, or rather did not on til the advent of European bakers. They make the best sponge cake in the •world, having learned the art from the Dntch, who -were the first foreigners in their country. The article which answers for a stove ic a hibachi, or brazier.

Mr. E.£.

Under the new rule, the owner of an interchangeable mUe&gtt ticket mar, at his convenience and leisure, sign his name upon the back of the widest part of the mileage atrip close to the last preceding: detstchnjent. <lmt it must be signed with an indelible pencil Cr>'itb ink, or It will not be honored). snd;ean leave his ticket thus slimed with the Agent upon his arrival at a station, or send it to bim^by a messenger or by ;he hotel porter, or in some other way. and upon hie return to the station find his exchange ticket ready and hie baggage checked : provided he has made such an advance arrangement. Therefore there need be no more delay at tbe station or en the train in the vwe of the new (han there -was In using the old form of mileaiw t'oket, which latter form "»M j?ood only over the system of roads, while the 'interchangeable" is good over forty. Tbe old form of exchange ticket Is valid for continuous passage only on a certain trato and date, while the new or modifled form TrWl be good on any train, (except the "Limited"), on ilther the date of Issue or the day following. This new form has been simplified to render t easy of issue and to better acrommodtte travelers, and the hindrances which aoconn- panied the old form will therefore be, in t early future, entirely obliberated. Interline tickets from points on one Railway to points on another, via through car lines and rl« junctions where connections are close and here are no transfers, are being- prepared as faatasposiible. These tickets will bo iAiued in exchange for coupons from the IntereoaDee- alle mileage ticket,and baggage will be cbacle- ed through.
