-The most prorafsing ptipils among
these adnriltea to the school of instruc-
44:ioa at the Kew Tori lire headqnarters
are said to be these who have terved
an apprenticeship in professions that
have called -:hem aloft. Bailors paint-
ers roofera and steeple climbers have
the advantage of their pirelinjiuary
training. The first thing that a neo-
phyte is called npen to learn ia howlo
handle the scaling ladder.
This bit of apparatus is a long well
eeasoned tongue of timber witn short
exosspieces passing through it It ter-
minates at the top with a long hcok '
which has three or fonr ratchellike
projections on its nndersnrface and
weighs from 20 to 45 pcands. There is
a special knack in handling it dexter-
oasly; and many a time a man who is
Elighfc and small of stature can manage
ladder which e Goliath would fiiid
difficulty in handling.
"There is no piece of apparatus in
the'fire department' says one who has
made a study of its methods "which
skillfully handled can be made to serve
mora purposes than this scaling ladder.
The longest extension ladder in the de-
partment measures 90 feet but the man
with the scaling ladder can go up 14
or 15 stories without becoming exhaust-
ed. At fixes before an extension ladder
can be put in position one fireman can
push a scaling ladder into a. second
story window scramble up and go from
story to story to the very roof. He is .
followed by a second fireman who takes
his ladder with him story by story and
this fireman by a third until by the
time the first man has reached the top
tnere is n completed ciiam Denma Uim
down which the rescued may bo carried
and the fireman himself escape." New

wnicn soJicits boaraers for a "nice pri-
Vate family" is often a snare for a stuiry
double fiat inhabited by one small fam-
ily and 24 boarders.
Smithers called onaday last week at
a place with a flowing description just
on the flank of Michigan avenue's aris-
tocracy. "Hum! Suspiciously like a boarding
bouse." thought Smithers as he took m
the dimensions. A collariess negro serv-
aiit who opened the door confirmed his
suspicions but he had gone too far
then to back out. A sharp ncsed snippy
landlady came in with a top lofty air.
"Er ah I believe I am mistaken'
he began. "I supposed I should find a
private family. By the advertisement

"This is not a boarding house although
we have a few friends living with us."
Smithers sniffed the air. There was
a distinct odor of prunes and corned
"Well. I must say" he remarked as
he turned up his coat collar and fied
down the steps "that it smells like a

Tempted by FIaIicr.
The Eoran gives a story of some very
naughty fishes in David's time. Know-
ing that tho Israelites were forbidden
to catch fish on the Sabbath the wicked
creatures came OGt of the Hed sea in
nnuaual numbers and kept in sight of
the people ail throughout the day in
order to tempt them. On the approach
of night they returned into the sea
In a fatal moment some of tho Israel-
ites yielded to the piscine blandish-
ments canght eeveral of them end had
them for dinner whereupon David
cursed the Sabbath breakers and God
to show his displeasure changed them
into apes and pig3. For three days they
remained in this unpleasant condition
when a violent storm arose and swept
them into the tea. Pittsburg Dispatch.

"You read 1000 miles" is the calcu-
lation a clever individual fond of de-
tails. The eyes of the average busy
man in reading alone travel 1000"
milefi which is equivalent to an "ocu-
lar trip" a third of the distance across
our continent. Even the busiest man
probably travels with his eyes 19 miles
of type yearJyt and there are doubtless
many readers who travel six times the
distance. If you read a yellow backed
novel your eyes have traversed from a
aile to a mile and a half of type. The
busiest pen cannot keep up with this
pace. With ordinary use your pen has
not traveled as far as -from Kew York
to Albany. Philadelphia Inquirer.

THE PEAR OF A MOUSE.
6 utsica Where It M&A m Lraa-
tlo of a Waisaa.
A Mouse has long been known to be
the bittrest enemy of womankind.
Just why the average run of femininity
should fear such a helpless harmless
Httle creature cannot be explained.
During the civil war a famous female
spy was betTyea through the instru-
mentality of a mouse. The woman was
masquerading as a boy and succeeded
admirably in deceiving the enemy nn-
til one evening while dining vdth a
party of men at a farmhouse a black
mouse jumped from a cupboard to the
table almost in the face of the sup-
posed boy. With a shrill feminine
shriek the spy threw up her arms and
rushed across the room and springing
on a couch went into hysterics from
sheer fright. The men. of course sus-
pected her and rather than be searched
she confessed but by the aid of the loy-
al old farmer and his wife she made her
escape in the night.
A well known woman physician o?
Chicago aav3 she can do anv kind of
surgical wor without a tremor but
the sight of a mouse turns her strange-
ny ji Bna thoroughly "unwomans" her.
Another woman has such a terror of
mice that she recently went insane
through fright at one of the wee crea-
tures. The woman was sweeping her
cellar when a mouse darted out frcra
an old barrel and ran abont her feet.
She tried to step on it and beat at it
with her broom calling piteously to
her little boy to help her. But the boy

NO CHINESE IN LEADVILLE.

jOnly two Ceis6tialc ever entered the
I camp and the story of their short stay
is unique and interesting. There wasn't
much cf a demonstration on their ar-

they climbed down from the roof of one
of the coaches into the baey streets and
' hastily surveyed the strange surround-

! What means of communication with
each other these strange little people
have I know not but the news of the
reception that was tendered to the first
representatives of their race to visit
Leadville traveled rapidly and tha fact
soon came to be understood by them
In all localities where they congregated
in Colorado that they were not want-
ed. I later queried a Chinaman in an
adjoining town as to whether he had
ever been in the great mining camp
and his reply was characteristically la-
conic: "I no go Lead-v-i-Mee. Lead-v-i-l-l-ee
