I \About ten years ago,\ said a man who used to be a newspaper reporter ont wes^, \I got a qncer assignment from the city editor of the Chicago pa- pfer thai) paid me wages. Frank Perley, who's now the 'impresario' of a trav­ eling comic opera outfit, blew into Chi­ cago ahead of Barnum's show He got the thing going pretty well from the jnmp. v \I n the first place, he told all of the city editors that the star panther of the show was going to have an ulcerated tooth pulled out by a local veterinary sharp on' the Sunday morning follow­ ing the arrival of the show in town on Saturday night. Each paper sent a man down to see this performance, and Per­ ley got gobs of reading space for his show out of it. . \The panther had an ulcerated tooth all right and put up a highly interest­ ing 6crap when the animal doctor de­ tached the molar, but the thing certain­ ly did fit in mighty pat for ante-exhibi­ tion Hpace grabbing all tbe same. \Then Perley blandly suggested to the city editors that it would be a good scheme for each of them to send a man to the show for the purpose of writing an absorbingly interesting Sunday spe­ cial on 'Circus Life Behind the Scenes.' All of the city editors side stepped on this proposition except the city editor of my paper, who thought : it would be a good thing. \I was picked out for the job. I couldn't precisely see why I. should get the assignment, for I wasn't notable as a spellbinder or a coverer of freak as^ signnient's. I fdund out afterward \yhy the task was poked at me. I was a ver.y humble quantity on the paper and noted all around for the sweetness of my disposition. \'There was to be a put up job, and I was singled ont as a good thing, 'not liable to get mad and tear tilings loose. \I went to the, show grounds with Perley for the first afternoon perform­ ance of the circus. Perley took me around to the men's dressing tent and introduced me to Nero. Nero was the huge chap who took the titular role in the big 'Fall of Rome' spectacle that preceded the^show. ;\Nero asked me what kind of a make up I wanted for the spectacle. An y old make up, I told him. So he started in to help me tog out as a Persian prince., \ \When he got through with me, I guess I had on a good $20,000 or $80,- 000 worth of clothes and other gear; at least I felt as if I had. The long tapes­ try robe 1 1 wore was incrusted with hun­ dreds ofi large diamonds, sapphires, ra­ bies, pearls, emeralds and such. The scimiteij that Swung from the side of me was I jewel hilted up. to the limit, the tallJ cloth of gold head thing that Nero gajve me to put on was also a blaze of. jewels, and, finally, tho kingly niaei that I had to pack around me as ,a part of any equipment—it weighed about 80 pounds-j-was so thickly studded with precious stones that I wondered what chance I'd have of getting away if I bolted with -the thing. ' 'Now, an easy role in the spectacular show wjas dished out t o me. All I had to do was to stretch out on a gorgeous gilded palanquin, with my head nesting gracefully on one hand, and be carried around ithe tent in the 'grand, triumphal procession' by 12 Roman .soldiers with Conneniara faces on them. There was nothing hard looking about that, and I breathed easier when I found that, aft­ er all, I wasn't expected to hop out into .the center of the main ring and do a limelight skirt dance alone and unaided. \ 'All youse is got to. do,' Baid Nero, who w^is, by all odds, the finest looking broth of a man that I eyer saw in my life, 'is! t' lay still on de top o' de ca­ lash an keep your head closed, see? Youse :s got a party part. Don't grin. Try an look a,s if youse had just been t'roweddown byabarkeep, an youse'11 Vx >k ug|ly, all right.' :, Wlenthe moment arrived, I hopped aboard of the palanquin, the 12 Roman soldiers i got hold of the legs of the same, A nd I shot up in the air. Looking down over the side, it seemed to me as if I was about a mile up in the air, and 1 shuddered to think of what would happen to m e supposing the 12 Roman soldiers decided to strike for more wages'•'vhile they had me in that elevat­ ed posi fcion on the palanquin. \But the blare of the music and the howls if the boys in the seats drove these i leas out of my head. I stretched 6*ut as per programme, with my huge mace reside me, and tried to look as savage as possible—for, you see, I was Bupposad to be a captive Persian prince, swiped in one of the eastern raids of the victorious Roman army. \The thing went pretty well for the first part of the trip. The boys in the Beats threw it at me pretty hard, of course] They didn't like that recumbent attitude of mine. They regarded me as a 'lazylduffer, lying there prone t with a lot of! husky men compelled to pack me ttound. \ 'Get out o' de wagon, ye dago dude/ they hooted at me, 'an give dem Romai.Mulligan sojers a chanst fer der white iliey!' \I didn't pay any attention to. these gibesj however, but the route around the big tent surely seemed a long one. But 1 1 didn't know what was in store for me. About hah? way around the tent Was the press box. I djdf^ know this until-—well, until I^sjaw my friends in the box. There were about 2.50 of them, I guess. \Petley stood right in the middle of the bTjkrja. He had xqt 'em. all to jjake a. part of \the afternoon off-just to give me a\~send off \on iny'dehut \as a\ circus guy-; also Perley had arranged that there should be a hitch in the proces­ sion just as my palanquin hove directly. I in front of ihe press box. It must have been a very serious hitch, for my pal­ anquin was in front of the press box for quite ten minutes. The 12 Roman soldiers were given the word to drop the -J palanquin and take a rest. They didn't stand on. the order of dropping it, but dropped it at once—with such suddeness that my feet khot up into the air and my jewel studded lid was jammed down over my eyes, and I must have been a sight for a. fact. \Well while I was straightening myself out my pals in - the press box be­ gan to bid me welcome. They gave me an ovation. All of 'em had brought along thefee big rattling things that yon turn around on a handle and horns and tin whistles and things like that, and for the ten minutes that the prearranged hitch lasted they gave me the greatest ovation you ever heard in your life. \They leaned over the rail of tbe box and ialked at me familiarly, calling me by .my nickname and mentioning out loud numerous tumultuous events in my checkered life, i \Then they all howled in chorus un­ der the leadership of Perley, who direct­ ed the howls with a cane that he used for a baton. It was great, that's what it was. All I could do was to lie there on that derned cushioned thing and grin. I didn't say a word—just grinned. \They congratulated me* in vocifer­ ous tones .on the hit I was making, and tire whole tentfnl of people caught on. I was the whole show on that after­ noon performance of Barnum's circus, and you want to remember that. The whole tentful of. folks took up the guy­ ing, and yon 'talk about a man feeling like Korean coin I i \Finally to my intense- relief, the hitch up in the front part of the pro­ cession—the hitch manufactured by Perley—was at an end, and my 12 Ro­ man palanquin bearers hoisted me up in the air again. \Then my friends in the press box gathered themselves for ono huge, final expression of their enthusiasm. Howls failed them in this, and so they buried me under an avalanche of fish horns, fatties, whistles and things—little offer­ ings, they shouted, indicative of their esteem and appreciation of my first ap­ pearance on any sawdiist. \I made a careful search for Perley after I got my togs off, but Perley did not \appear to want me to find him. I guess he knew that I'd probably haye a few personally conducted remarks to *• \lirhftt-little chin she possessed, gave her.- ; QUEER PRANKS FOR WHICH THERE IS' NO ACCOUNTING.' make to him.\—Washington Post. Where Paris Excels London. There are some things that the French do infinitely better than the English, and one of them is the .embellishment of their capital city. No absolute reason exists why London should not be as • cheerful and beautiful as Paris. The difference in climate is small, and it is not wholly to the advantage of the French metropolis. And if money be a consjderation there is quite as much of that commodity in London as in Paris. Some statistics, however, which have -just been published throw an interest­ ing ray of light on the cost of keeping .Paris bright and attractive. It appears that the title of Ville Lu- miere is not as well earned as one might imagine, seeing that there are but 52,- 460 lanterns, more than half of which have but one burner each. The boule­ vards and avenues are ornamented .with 86,400 trees, which is no mediocre feat to accomplish, considering the inhospi­ table nature of the soil. They are to a large extent plane trees, which have r^een found more suitable than most other kinds. There are, however, no less than 14,500 chestnut trees, whereas the number of elms is still greater by 100. This brotherhood of venerable trees, as Wordsworth would have termed the scattered forest of Paris, and their maintenance costs in round numbers $65,000 a year. There are 8,300 Beats in the streets and squares which cost the weary foot passenger nothing, and a very large number of supplementary chairs which can be had for a penny. — London Telegraph. A Wife and Her Hu«buiitl's Bnulncttu. \It is a cause of amazement to me tb^at ji man can go-on year in'and year out toiling for a family whose^ members »how no interest in his woijk further than to spend the money he makes and .who look npon him as the family mint,'' Writes Frances Evans in The Ladies' Eome Journal. \My firm belief is that had he in the first flush of married life talked over his business and ambitions with his wife she would have become interested iu both, first for his sake and afterward for her own and their chil­ dren's.

Some Instances Qf the Singular Ef­ fects Produced Cpon the Mind HY Giizlngr Steadily at 'a Crystal—For­ gotten Incidents Recalled. The queer freaks of memory are a constant puzzle to those who study psychical phenomena. -Who has not been driven to the verge of distraction by the total inability to recall a name when an effort was made to do so and t» T hen the occasion for such remem­ brance was past had the missing name flash into the mind apparently of its own volition? ^ Great minds have wrestled to find an explanation for the pranks that memory plays and have' had* to give up the effort. In the coursa of a systematic at­ tempt to arrive at some understanding with regard to the wonders of memory a very valuable and unique body of testimony has been obtained. The fol­ lowing questions have been put to 200 American university students and pro­ fessional persons,- 151 being - men and 49 being women. The answers are here ^iven with the questions Question 1.—When you cannot recall a name yon want}, does it seem to come back spontaneoifsly without being sug­ gested by any perceived association of ideas? To this 11 per cent answered \No\ and 81 per dent \Yes.\ 4 Question 2.—Does such recovery ever come during sleep? To this 17 per cent answered \No\ and 28 percent ''Yes.' Some examples given.' 1 Thjs morning I tried to recall the name of 1 a character I had read of the night bexore in one o f Scott's novels and failed, ji taught a class, and walking home iri the afternoon all the names re­ curred to me without effort. 2. I tried to recall the name of a book. Gave it up. Half an hour later, while talking of something else, blurted it out without conscious volition. Question 8.—On seeing a sight or hearing a sound for the first .time, have yon ever felt that you had seen (or beard) the same before? Fifty-nine per cent answered \Yes.\ , The action of unconscious memory during sleep is illustrated by further queries Question 4. —Do you dream ? Ninety- four per cent answered \Yes.'\ Question 5. —Can you wake at a given hour determined . before going to sleep without waking up many times before ? Fifty-nine per cent answered ','Yes.' Thirty-one per cent answered \No.\ Question 6.—If you can. how about failure? Sixty-nine per cent seldom failed; 25 per cent often. Question 7\ —Do you come direct from oblivion into consciousness ? Sixty-four per cent' answered \Xes 1 \ and 16 per cent \Gradually.\ Examples 1 I had to give medicine every two hours exactly to my wife. I am a very sound sleeper, but for six weeks I woke up every two hours and never missed giving the medicine. - 2. I am always awake five minutes before the hour I set the alarm. 3. I had had little sleep for ten days and went to bed at 9, asking to be called at midnight. I fell asleep at once. I roso and dressed as the clock stuck 12. and could not believe I had not been called. A strange phenomenon has come to light in the course of tho inquiry into the mystery of memory. It has been discovered that by gazirfg steadily at a crystal consciousness is partly lost. In­ to the void thus produced those who have practiced crystal gazing find that there enter unbidden forgotten incidents and lost memories^ To give a few in­ stances - A lady in crystal gazing saw a bit of dark wall covered with white flowers. She was conscious she must have seen it somewhere, but had ho recollection where. She walked over the ground she had just traversed and found the wall, which Bhe had passed unnoticed. She took out her bankbook another day. «-Shortly afterward she was gazing at the crystal and saw nothing but the number one. She thought it was some back number,'but, taking up the bank­ book, found to her surprise it was the number of the account. At another time she destroyed a let­ ter without noting the address. She could only remember the* town. After gazing at the crystal some time she saw \321 Jefferson avenue.\ She ad­ dressed the letter there, adding the town, and found it was right. A lady sat i n a room to write where she had sat eight years before. She felt her feet moving restlessly under th6_ta­ ble and then remembered that eight years before she always had a footstool. It was this her feet were.seeking. Psychical research brjings to light many cases of similar strange tricks ^memory. It is easy to find instances that serve to deepen the mystery. It is not so easy to give-an explanation. The cleverest men who have attempted to do so. have had to admit defeat. —Wash­ ington Post.
