The -Gamester's Clock" would be
an appropriate name for a timepiece
which appears to have been made with
al the implemeits for gaming that
could be secured. A checkerboard
furnishes it with a face, the numbers
on which are made with dominoes of
appropriate denomination. The min minute
ute minute hand Is tipped with the figure of
a "heart" and at Its short end is a
"club.' A "diamond" serves to point
the hours for the hour hand, while a
"spade" forms the butt of this hand.
The hands are fastened to the clock
with dice, while the top Is ornamented
with a row of tenpins and billiard
balls. Over the top a row of short bil billiard
liard billiard cues are crossed.
No Fleas en Monkeys.

is that monkeys have no fleas. This is
an assertion that Is commonly received
with astonishment and incredulity,
but, says Howard Russell, the fore foremost

seen searching one another's fur in a
fashion familiar to all of us it Is only
to clear their skin of any particles of
scurf and dirt.
It may be mentioned, too, that only
one instance Is on record where a flea
was found on a reptile. This was on a
brown snake which was captured near
Perth, in West Australia, and which
was probably derived from some small
mammal devoured by the snake. The
flea was firmly fixed between the scaly
plates of the reptile.
The history of the 'flea would seem
to go back many centuries, but the
only fossil remains of a flea that have
so far been found Is a single Insect in
a bit of Baltic amber. The flea Is ad admirably
