CAMEL'RIDING. Sensations When the. Beast Rises From the Ground. To mount a camel for the first lime is for a Howadji a complicat- ed and anxiouB process says the Nineteenth Century. The first risk is that the animal will rise while the rider is climbing into the saddle. This he .will inevitably do it the attendant has forgotten to place his foot on the camel's knee. The novice having settled in the saddle which is like a flat wooden tea tra on top sof a hump" and taking a .tight grip of the "horns" of which there is one in front and one behind waits in sus- pense wondering which end of the animal means to get up first. The action when it does begin is. a violent seesaw in three jerks which ' impel him alternately toward the head and tail until if he' is lucky he finds himself ten feet from the ground.. The fifteenth century pilgrim Felix Fabri so exactly expresses my sentiments about camels that I will quote his re- marks. He says: "A camel has a small head and is without horns. It ...

Mrs. I.jrBB Ustoa Enumerates a Few of life's Vnpurchaaables. "When Mrs. Lj'nn Linton forgets to be original and radical she is capable of saying some fairly pleasant things. The idea that many things of value cannot be bought and that those things which can be bought are only of secondary im- portance in the world is not strikingly new. Two or three people had hit upon it before Mrs. Linton. But what she says about the unpnrchasable things is not the less interesting and timely be- cause they have been said ever since the deluge. There is happiness she tells us that gold may not buy.

Bathing oil th llrach at Newport. Tho creme de lacreme are at Newport. The nobility have established a new bathing place called Bailey's beach at the end of Bellevue avenue in the heart of the millionaires' quarter. It is only about 300 yards in length but that small space the cottagers think they can hold against the assaults of the common herd. No buses or horse cars are allowed to land passengers there during the morn- ing hours. A bathing house has been built with a granite portico. In this are little retreats 9 feet by 12 each of which bears the initials of the gentleman who owns it. A stranger could no more buy or hire one of these bathing houses than be could engage a front seat in the bal- cony of heaven. Fifteen of the houses belong to the Vandrbilt family; others to the Astors the Stnyvesant Fishes the De Forresta and their clan. The hours for bathing are from 11 in the morning until 1. At 11 three guards make their appearance; one patrols the beach; two others in a lifebo...

The different trades throughout the Union have their labor organi- zations and the fact cannot be dis- puted that while they have not accomplished all that could be hoped for they have done much good to the cause of labor and la- borers. Strikes have been a very effective method of disposing of grievances and have usually re- sulted in satisfactory compromises -but the Pullman strike has given the strike question an altogether new phase and will either result in strengthening or weakening labor organizations of all kinds.

There was a big fire up town week or two ago and there were a lot of engines and hose carts hook aim lauaer ana patrol wagons all the usual crowd of vehicles that a fire brings out; and o course a lot of persons to look on and much excitement. The fire lines were promptly laid out and policemen and firemen were sta tioned all about to keep the crpwds in place. All wagons and ; carriages were also turned aside. f Suddenly a horse dashed right up into the crowd which fell away at each side; the policemen looked and when they saw what sort of a wagon the horse was drawing they called out: "Room room make way there!" and let the driver go right on through the fire lines pass the burnincr building and rapidly on his way. At first per sons watching thought it was an ambulance but it wasn't; it was a . big blue covered box-like looking wagon and the reason it could go unhindered through the fire lines was because it had on one side the letters: "U.

( otonen 01 curious Things Bone by Those Addicted to the Habit The Boy Who Went Fishing Cases of Sleepwalking Which Had Fatal Results. According to scientists there are four kinds of somnambulism: Those who talk while sleeping but do not walk or otherwise act. Those who walk or otherwise act wliilo sleeping but do not talk.
