THE BEAST! For many years a faithful house keeper worked for a bad-tempered old bachelor, but finally grew tired oi his eternal complaints, and decided to leave him. Biding her time, there fore, she informed him that she was going to California. "To California !" he repeated in alarm. "What to do there, pray?" "To find a husband," she answered boldly. "They say there are many more men than women in California.' "Bah !" the old bachelor snarled. "Don't flatter yourself that you'll find a husband among them, woman. It's true the men are in the ma jority, but they're not the marrying sort. They're runaway husbands who've gone to California in search of a little peace !" An Australian actor tells of an odd contretemps -when he was playing the balcony scene from "Romeo and Ju liet."

A couple of days later he tool; a hot bath, and while reclining com fortably in the water, went to sleep Waking up he found to his horror that his hair, back, and legs were securely glued to the bath. He could not reach the bell ; the door was locked. The only thing was to shout. The water was nearly cold by the time his cries were heard, and then the door had to be broken down. Even after that it was a most diffi cult and painful piece of work to prise him loose, and he required a doctor's attention when the job was at last completed.

The scout must make him | self familiar with both points.of i view, "and keep looking back as lie ] advances, so that on the return jour ney he will in no sense feel lost. Estimating the distance objects are away from him is another important j duty of the scout, and prepared cards marked to a scale arrived at by ex periments are lised. The rifle, too, is used for this pur pose. The scout slips out the bolt and gazes down the bore. He has learned beforehand that a man on horseback is just contained within the circle of the barrel when 350 yards distant. Again, he knows that at roughly 600 yards a mounted man J takes up half the diameter, and so j | on ; the smaller the man and horse j the greater the distance^ away, that j ! distance being easily calculated by j dividing up the diameter of the rifle barrel.
