All Had Ac. "The moat exciting game of poker I T(r played, said a reformed gambler to a reporter, was in a saloon In Cincinnati. Accompanied bjr two friends I entered tbe idace and we Beated ourselves at a table upon which lay a deck of cards. a game of poker was proposed and the man to my left dealt the cards. 1 glanced over my hand and found four aces, which, as straights were barred, wis invincible. I raised Ihe amp, the dealer followed suit, and, after several ra:s s, the ante alone was a pot. I saw that the other two had good hands and stood pat for fear they would think i had fours if I drew a card. The others did the same and I played one for a full, the other for a flush. We all had a good deal of money with us and betting ran high and exciting. Finally one said: Ive got you all beaten, but Ill have to raise it only $10 for a show down. The money went up and I shouted: Tour aces!' The man to the right pinned the money to the table with his knife. 'Four aces here.' 'And here,' shouted the other as he drew a revolgood-size- d ver.

In the centre of the arched roof of All Saints church, Sedlcc, in Bohemia, hangs a chandelier constructed entirely of human bones. The church In which this remarkable object is suspended is decorated from the floor to Lie ceiling with the blanched bones of human bodies. Garlands of bones stretch across the walls and hang from the ceiling. Pyramids, topped with golden crowns, are artistically reared from the ground with these whitened remains of the dead. The altars are literally covered with Bkulls, among which are hundreds of those which had been pierced by gullets or crushed by murderous blows from swords and other weapons, denoting that these grim relics of humanity have been gathered from adjacent battlefields. Tradition says that these piles of human bones were gathered by a blind friar of the Cistercian Order, who stored them In a corner of the church. As they were fast changing into their original elements, a man named Rlnt devoted himself to the task of cleaning and arranging them In the church.

On the other hand, peuple who arc very hungry usually find it difficult to feep. And then, a habit of sleep at a regular time and during proper hours should be cultivated in case this habit has been lost. In accomplishing this the attainment of a favorable slate of mind is of great importance. Sleep cannot be enforced by a direct exercise of the will. The very effort of the will to command sleep Is enough to render its attainment nugatory. The mental state to be encouraged is one of quiescence, one of indifference, a feeling that the recumbent posture is a proper one for rest, and that if the thoughts are disposed to continue active they may be safely allowed to take their course without any effort toward control This state of mind and thought is next akin to dreams, and dreaming is next akin to sound sleep. Many mental methods have been advised and put in practice for the purpose of securing sleep, the design being to turn the thoughts from objects of Interest to a condition of monotony; as by mentally repeating phrases' or sentences or by counting. But the slate of indifference, if this can be obtained, la likely to be the most efficient, as being the least active.

The doctors had told me to get out and rough it if I wanted to regain my lualth. i was hound lu give the a fair trial, so bought a horse at Omaha and struck out into the country. About the third night I put up wph a frontier ret tier, and in the morning nty horse was gone. Tbe old fellow hustled around as though the rest of his family had been mur-red. notifying the deputy sheriff to take the trail with a posse and agreeing to keep the horse for me, if recaptured, till my return. I went right for a train and pushed on further west. After we had gone about thirty miles our engine broke her piston rod, and while we were waiting a yahoo came flying down the road astride of my horse. I didn't care to be detaiued in that section, and when I suggested that he take a walk lie thought so well of it that he left on the run. I took to the saddle again, but hadn't gone far until I was overhauled by half a dozen rough ridcis with sawed-of- f shut g utis that induced me to throw up niv huinlu at the first notice. Explanations urn no go with those fellows. Tim burs was stolen, I bad him and that settled it. The posse stood thru to three for hanging me then and there, but the deputy talked one of the men over. They hustled in to a squire who carried two In his licit and a pint nf whisky under it as ho held cour ho rear end of a barber shop. The squire enuhln . cnee me as a horse thief, but the old fox gave me three months for stealing a saddle and bridle. Of course, I was not an agreeable prisoner, and when I called the jailer a liar for pointing nte out as a rse thief he rut me down to bread 1 water for a week. When I repeated the offense lie had a menu from the best hotel In Omaha tacked up In my cell to aggravate the punishment.

All children who present themselves at the Veat for study are received. It Is not ever required that their parents bring them or visit them, says Popular Science Monthly. The newcomer chooses his professor, and, If accepted, begins at once to study under his direction, Installs himself In his cell or In the school hall, and becomes Ills servant. If the professor has already too many pupils he refuses the new pupil nnd advises him to choose another teacher; sometimes he guides his choice, directing him to a master who has few or no pupils or takes him to the superior, who will select a teacher for him. The choice of a professor is always a grave affair, because it is held in ('ainbodia, as In all Buddhist and Brahmaitic countries. Mint professor and pupil are bound by strong ties of spiritual affinity, and that the pupil ought to r spool his master as be docs his father and mother. The law inflicts the same penalty upon an offense of the pupil against his master os an offense by a son against his father and mother and it prescribes that In certain cases the pupil may be heir of his professor when he has cared for him or supported him or served him when studying under his direction; not only a family bond, hut a religious bond, too, is established between them, for the professor makes It bis business to teach his pupil the course by which he may earn a more advantageous reincarnation anl rearh the Nirvana, and becomes his spiritual guide.
