talk of' klondike luck.
"You simply go it blind in staking
out a claim," said a returned Klon-
diker, "and brains don't count foi any-
"1 wt£ with a crowd up thore about
a year ago. We all heard that there
was gold in a certain section not far
from our camp and accordingly there
was a prompt exodus. It was a case
of first tome first served, and soon
i we all had our claims staked out,
1 quotes the New York Mail and Ex-
press. "Two fellows who were chums
had tried to get claims side by side,
but another man got between them.
They proposed an exchange to hi in.
" 'It's all luck,' they said, 'and we
want to work our claims togethei
Now you take either one of ours, it
won't make any difference to you and
; will help us out.'
"The other man said it was all a
; gamble anyway, so he chose the right-
I hand claim in exchange for his own.
! That was a year ago. The two men
who are working their claims together
haven't made a thing, while the other
has already taken over a million dol-
! lars out of his. Queer, isn't it, but
that's the Klondike."

The advertising columns in Chinese
newspapers are characteristic of a pe-
culiar people—verbose, grandiloquent ,
ami chlldisti. Here is how a jilted lover j
advertises his broken heart to tho |
world: "1 cannot control my wratn :
and bitterness. My loved one has, it j
is plain, been enticed away by tins I
rascal's deceit. How, 1 wonder, can a |
mere tailor's dummy like this succeed j
in winning her? Surely he ha.s not
law or justice before his eyes.

A. M. FOLLETT,
The following, which, we are sure,
is an exceptional case, is narrated of
a certain Mr. and Mrs. Caliift, of No-
Mrs. Cabiff's education in the art
of cookery had been somewhat neg-
lected, but she did her best, and her
husband struggled manfully and un-
I coinplainingly with the tough steaks
and sour bread she set before him day
One morning, about three years af-
ter their weddiftg, she said to him.
j "Oliver, you don't love your wife as
you dlii once!'
i "Why do you say that?" he asked
! "Because you don't eat the things
1 I cook any more."
' "Phillida," rejoined Oliver, with all
the earnestness he could command, I
love you as fondly as ever, but my di-
gestion is ruined!"
just what uk expkctt'fc
on this account that 1 am advert is |
ing." A mother writes to a son who
has run away from home "If you de-
lay longer aud do not return 1 cannot,
cannot bear it, and shall surely seek
an end to my lifp. and then you will
stand in peril of death by thunder. I
am now at my last gasp, and the fam-
ily has suffered from insults most
grievous. If you come, no matter how.
everything is sure to be arranged. I
have thought of a plan by which your
father may still be kept in ignonmee.
My life or death hangs on the issue of
these few days. Only 1 pray that all
good people everywhere will spread
this message abroad so that the right j
person may hear of it. So will they
i lay up for themselves a boundless store
of secret merit."
Quacks in China advertise in mora
beauteous language than their kind in
America. One such "ail" runs: "One
recipe has come down to us from a
physician of the Ming dynasty. A
certain mandarin was journeying
in the hill country when he saw a
woman passing southward over the
mountains, as though flying. In her
hand she held a stick, and she was
pursuing an old fellow of 100 years.
The mandarin asked: "Why do y-u
beat that old man?" She answered:
'He is my grandson, for I am 500 years
old and he is 111. He will not purify
himself by taking his nvdicin \ and so
I am beating him.' The mandarin
alighted from his horse and knelt
down and did obeisance to her, say-
ing: 'Give me, I pray vou this drug,
that I may hand it down to posterity
for the salvation of mankind.' Take I
it for five days and the body will fec-l
light; take it for ten days and v jur |
spirits will became brisk: for twenty
days and the voice will be strong and
clear and the hands and feet supple;
for "one year and white hairs will be-
come black again and you move as
though flying. Take it constantly and
;«11 troubles will vanish, and you will
pass a long life without growing old."

The following, from Short Stories,
recalls W. M. Hunt's definition of a
critic as "somebody who stands in the
way and snubs":
A small darky and his sister wero |
in the back yard of a wealthy south-
erner's house. The girl was admit ing
things, and exclaimed:
"Wouldn't you lA*e to live here.

A feiuth American Collector Garo 99.50
for n Klnfft* Hpeclwii.
In winter tin)* housekeepers are
likely to grumble about the price of
eggs. As a solace to thorn tho price
list of some sort* of egg—and not
necessarily fresh ones, either—should
be quoted. The frigate btrd, while not
an uncommon bird, lays its eggs in
such out-of-the-way places t'nnt orni-
thologists are not yet agreed upon what
the egg looks like. A South American
collector is said to have given $250 for
a specimen of the frigate bird's egg,
but the egg he bought is described as
being white, clouded with gray, where-
as, according to the "authorities," tho
egg is of a "ptnky-whtte" color. A
supposed specimen was sold in Dondon
recently by a sailor tor $50. Tho
sailor said ho got It txz South America,
but there waj no guaranty of Its gen-
uineness. It was of grpviih white,

The eggs of the great northern diver
are becoming scarcer every year. For
I a good shell $25 is by no means e fancy
price. If the birds decrease in numbers
for the next few years as rapidly aa
| they have been doing in the last few,
j the prtce of diver eggs will go up to
such a point that they will >>e placed
tar beyond the reach of "cramon peo-
ple." These eggs of the great north-
ern dicer are large in proportion to
the size of the bird, some of them
measuring three feet in length. Iii
color they are a tawny white, usually
1 unspotted and generally of a symmetrl-
l cal shape. The eggs of the nut-crack-
er crow, If found in England, are worth
$5. and a bustard's egg, If found on
| British soil, Is worth Its weight in gold.
A raven's egg is wo-th about <2,
though some especially fine specimens
have brought $5.

H « Fought Mar-T Duol .
A story which is going the rounds
of the European press ilustrates the
absurdities of the French duel. Tt/o
men of Paris arranged to fight a dual
at Calais. They were highly pleaded
at least one of them was at the pros
pect. for if meant public, proclamation
of their brAvery at the cost of only a
scratch or two, and, what was more
serious, a few coppers for coffee. But j
one of the duelists, as it turned out, j
really wanted to kill and be killed, for j
he had made up his mind to commit
suicide. On learning this the other
man fainted and had to be carried off
to bed. This seemed to be a great dis-
I appointment to the one with suicidal
intentions, and after vainly trying to
' pick a quarrel with his second he went
and drowned himself.
