whose accounts were badly mixed,

hearted and poor and that he was
only made a scapegrace of the
•wealthy men connected with the
company. Mrs. Allison has made
the following statement:
"I know the man who falsified the

Chinese mind anil the queer ahapa
which Oriental logic lake* were well
iliistralea In a recent decision of the
L'nltml .states general appraisers in
Now York. The tiutation waa whether
dried lizards, from which the Chinese
make a inedii'ina! drink—for them-
selves ouly, thank heaven—come in the
h "■(; tar.fT category as fiogs, whose
lcg.1 are ealen a* food. If the answer
w«re yes the stuff for the Chinese con-
coction. according to Chinese logic,
ought Lo come Into America at a lower
rate of duty. The Collector of Cus-
toms In San Francisco took ths nega-
tive end of the argument, whereupon
it Chinese Orm of Importers appealed,
with the result that the decision of the
' collector waa alfli iued.
In China the lizards ars cut open,
stretched ou bamboo sticks and dried.
In this condition they are exported to
the United States to make the cup that
cheers and cures the Chinaman In this
country. The appraiser In Hun Fran-
cisco returned the stuff as a medicinal
preparation not otherwise provided
for. and acseiseil It at the rate of 25
per cent ad valorem. Then the Im-
porters "kicked." They represented
that the merchandise is not a prepared
medicine, but Is merely dried lizard,
and should be taxed at 111 per cent ad
valorem as an unenumeratcd, unman-
The Chinese members of the Import-
ing Arm delved deep Into the mysteries
of the American tariff. They rested
their claim upon a Treasury decision
In which the goods In that case were
frogs intended for food, though tbere
was no contention that they were for
sny other purpose, and the sole ques-
tion was whether they were dutiable
as prepared meats or as dead 'rogs.
The statement of the lizard importers
showed that ihe lizards ars used only
as medicines, being boiled In water, as
herbs ar'l sip liar articles are pre-
pared. Thl* concoction Is drunk to
Impart vigor and strength. S v ral
veers urn, how-ver, the Treasury De-
partment was crflled upon to decide
| tills same question, and It held then
1 that the "lilt was a medicinal p- para-
' linn. Therefore. In accordance vlth
this decision, the New YirV general
appraisers announced that the dr' d
lizards are dutiable as a medicinal
preparation, as assessed.
Profit* of a Sleeping Car.
The income or earning capacity of
a Bleeping car id considerable. Take
I he run from New York to Chicago,
1,000 mllea. Every road In the United
State* pays 3 cents a mile for the
privilege of hauling a sleeper aud
contracts to return said car in as good
yhnpp as it U received and to pay
for all damages. The Journey on the
limited express to Chicago is made in
24 he Mrs, therefore the car earns |3t)
a day for travel. If It is full, which
is generally the case, receipts from
berths, sections and staterooms
( amount to $185, making a total reve-
nue of $215 a day. Out of this must
come the wages of the porter and
conductor—the latter, however, usual-
ly having chargj of several cars—the
I towels, sheets, soap. ice, etc., the
whole amounting to but a small sum.
Then there are the wuar and tear and
general depreciations, the dally clean-
ing. the annual re^ttlng and repair-
ing. Set these charges down at 10
per cent and give the car three trips
a week of 1,000 miles each; we have
its earnings at over $30,000 auuually.
Some cars earn a great deal more.
A Mjat«rtou<i Trick.
The "spinning handkeichief" Is an
amusing and mysterious trick, but one
easily managed. A short stick and a
larger handkerchief are required.
Throwing the handkerchief into the
air, it is caught on the end of the stick
aud spun rapidly around in all ai:ec-
tions. and thrown off the end of the
btick. hut caught again as it is fall-
ing, and before It reaches the floor.
The secret of this trick is that at the
end of the stick a needle Is Inserted
and allowed to project about half an
inch, with the po.nt outward. There-
fore, the handkerchle'. when thrown
into the air, Is caught upon the point
of the projecting needle, which, being
fine, Is not noticeable.

Is obliged to Import all the coal for
