THE DOOR THAT OPENS.
Time When (t Sends the Cold Shiv-
ers Dunn Your Dark.
"Evt sit." s-iM Mr. Colilinton. "late
at nijil'.t alone iu a room rending or
studying evorylmdy koiic to liel tons
ago the house the whole city quiet
ami w presently across the table .m
the other side of the room a door open-
ing slowly? That's a hair raising ex-
perience. You don't know by what
means the knowledge that it was open-
ing was first conveyed to you. but you
see it now opening slowly and steadi-
ly and silently and you get up an-.l
grasp the chair in which you have
been Kitting awl stand up with th.j
table lietwecn you and hini for f Hi-
ther protection and wait for him but
he doesn't come.
"Then you go around to the door. It
has stopped now and is standing dead.
It yields with no resistance except that
of its own weight when you open it
wider and holding to it you look
around the door jamb into the hall.
Silence there perfect and complete:
uobody there; those were ghostly fin-
gers if any that turned the knob.
And so you shut the door securely and
go back to your reading.
"Presently you find the door open
again but this time theiv is an air of
vacancy about it and now you realiza
what it all means. The back of the
catch bolt that you turn with a knob
is worn off a ISttle. rounded or the
metal frame around the socket into
which the bolt enters may be worn. r
both. Or it may be the door has
shrunk or the. jamb has drawn away
from it so that only the tip end of the
bolt .catches iu the socket and has a
constant tendency to work free. The
slightest shaking or jarring starts it
and gradually it works itself clear of
the socket and then if it happens to
be hung just so. the door slowly opens.
"And there you are and it is all very
simple when you come to know about
it but it's never altogether agreeable.
You never really get used to the door
that opens." New York Sun.
THE HEATHEN CAN WAIT.
A Sunalte!-' Idea of Wkrn Charity
The other day an old sijuatter came
to the city and attended divine services
at a fashionable church. The old fel-
low listened with rapt atteution to the
sermon occasionally nodding iu ap-
proval or shaking his head in uncer-
tainty. When a man with the contri-
bution box approached the squatter
"We are taking up a collection for
the heathen and as you seemed to be
so much interested in the sermon I
didn't know but you would like to give
a few dimes."
"What's the matter with the
"Why he doesn't know anything
about the gospel and we want to raise
money enough to send it to him."
"Wall. I tell yer. 1 don't think he'll
spile afore morn in. I've got a boss

come aroun an we'll sorter look inter

dren need clothes."

gcrn yer hat. an Jack haster stay un-
der the house when a stranger comes

I'UliiiiK For a Drink.
A guide who has done more or less
plug tishing on Mooselookmeguntic
lake says he can get a drink of nice
cold water when be is anchored on a
lake provided the water is deep
enough. For deep fishing it is customa-
ry to sound for a clay bottom before
casting anchor anil our informant
claims that he can sound to secure a
cool drink lie ties a weight to the
bottom of his coffee bottle and with
the string tied also to the cork he
drops it to the bottom: then by a quick
jerk pulls the cork the bottle fills with
cold clear water and he has only to
pull it in. Phillips Phonograph.
To (et a Vacuum.
Professor Dewar's achievement in liq-
uefying hydrogen has led to the dis-
covery of an easy method for obtain-
ing an almost perfect vacuum and
that In a single minute. When a glass
tube filled with air and closed at one
end has its open end dipped into a cup
of liquid hydrogen the intense cold
condenses the air into a kind of snow
which settles to the bottom. If then
the upper part of the tube from which
the solidified air has fallen is removed
hy heating and sealing it off it be-
comes a vacuum chamber so free from
air that it is uitlicult to force an elec-
tric current through it.

A Mother Tells How She Saved Her
Little Dautfther's Life.
I am the mother of eight children
and have had a greaT deal of experi-
ence with medicines. Last summer
my little daughter had the dysentery
in its worst form. We thought she
would die. I tried everything I
could think of but nothing seemed
to do her anv good. I saw by an ad-
vertisement in our paper that Cham-
berlain's Colic Cholera and Diar-
rhoea remedy was highly recom-
mended and sent and got a bottle at
once. It proved to be one of the
be3t medicines we had ever had in
the house. It saved my little daugh-
ter's life. I am anxious for every
mother to know what an excellent
medicine it is . Had I known it at first
it would have saved me a great deal
of anxiety and my little daughter
much suffering. Yours truly Mrs.
