Nat Interrupt Work of Moving
Recently a moving picture com-
pany secured permission to use a real
city street for one of their "street
scenes." While their actors were
busy a man came along and was told
that he could walk up the street
while the acting was going on.
He immediately threw off his dis-
guise of a mild-mannered passer-by
and became an American Citizen.
He declared that nobody had anv
right to 8top him. The representa-
tives of the picture company were
"Well, I'll leave it to a police-
man," roared the Citizen, and he
hustled over to a bluecoat who was
standing near by.
"Can 1 or can I not pasa along
that street?" he inquired.
"You can NOT," said tlie police-
man. "That street has been hired
for the day. Get off of it. Get n
move on. Beat it."
Much crestfallen, the Citizen
obeyed, went up another street, and
was heard no more.
And the policeman, getting his
cue. hurried into the middle of the
street to take his part in the "show"
and receive the congratulations of

Chambermaid Was Unduly Alarmed at
Strang* Sounds Coming From
Taking parrots into the house is
against the rules at the Manhattan,
but yesterday when a large Canadian
family with a cage arrived from a
ship and the head of it said they
wanted a suite of rooms merely for
the day, as thev were leaving for
home at night, Beau Brummel Hill,
the room clerk, who was smiling
with the day, said he thought Polly
might be accommodated just for the
Polly's cage was hung up in a
window on the Forty-third street
side of the building and the family
went out shopping. An hour or so
later the chambermaid on duty about
those pari rushed to a telephone
and called up the V<Ur-eki "per.

bermaid was advised to go back and
unlock the door, and by the time she
got there the noise had ceased. Look-

VERDICT OF SCIENTIST.
Clement Wragge, who lias inspect-
ed what are known as the "tattooed
rocks" on the coast near Hag i an.
New Zealand, is distinctly of opin-
ion that they are the work of neither
Tamil nor Maori, hut are the in-
scriptions of a very ancient race of
sun worship people, antedating the
advent of the Maori by untold cen-
turies. The spiral circle, ovals,
crosses and squares, he says, are most
significant, and confirm his opinion
that New Zealand has been inhab-
ited by early man. He considers
the inscriptions are probably eon-
I. ed with those at Easter island
and Central and South America, and
are Atlantean or Lemurian in
origin; further, that the Maori
copied the spiral from the relies of
ancient people, and did not initiate

is authority for the statement that
the cod spawns about nine million
in a season. He adds that the floun-
der usually produces more than one
million, and the mackerel more than
five million. If Mr. and Mrs. Cod
and Mr. and Mrs. Mackerel were to
issue invitations for a family re-
union it would mean something.

A clever new method of gaining
entrance to homes has been invented
by thieves, and is now lieing prac-
ticed extensively in New York and
the larger cities of the states. Its
very simplicity will prove a surprise.
The thief appears at the door as an
agent for some fancy soap and dur-
ing the conversation regarding the
merits of the product he has for sale
he learns whether the housewife is
alone. If this fact is established be
instructs the prospective buyer to
test the quality of the soap bv
smelling it. Unsuspectingly this is
done and the woman suddenly In-
comes unconscious. Concealed in
the soap is a sponge containing chlo-
roform. The intruder can then take
what he will and depart without sus-
picion. If anyone else should he
home he ceases to try to sell the
