'LAO AND NATION.
The Nmtional Salute and thealiute to
The question as to why the no
tional salute consiste4 of twenty.
one guns was put to one of the
classes- at Washington preparing
young men for the entrante exam
inations for %West Point and An
napolis, and, strange to stly, not one
of the embryonic generals or ad
mirals "hit the nail On the head."
The "coach," who knows Ameri
can histdry away down underneath,
furnished the information that the
national salute, which is the inter
national salute-that is, the sqlute
given to the national ffagZ-i fixed
by army regulations at twenty-one
guns, and that the .number appears
to have been in conformity to the
custom of foreign nations at the
time when the number was so fixed.
The first record of a national sa
lute is in the army regulations of
1812, which was in conformity to
the number of states comprising the
Union, then eighteen, but in 1818
a new- regulation was made fixing
the number at twenty-one, which
was at that date the number of
states in the Union, and which was
at the same time in accordance with
the king's regulations (Great Brit
ain), which fixed twenty-one guns
to be fired as a salute on the anni
versary days of the birth, accession
and coronation of the king, the
birth of the queen, the restoration
of Charles 11. and the gunpowder
1 At that date the national salute
in France was also fixed at twenty
one gifns, to be fired only on Corpus
Christi day and on the king's birth
It is proper to remark, however.
that the national salute of twenty
one guns at the present time ap
pears to be peculiar to the United
States and Great Britain, inasmuch
as the national salute of France is
101 guns, of Germany 33 guns, and
that the superlative salute in the
United States is that on the Fourth
of July of one gun for each state
Yin the Union, and it is called the
salute to the Union.-Washington

Why a Seene In "Romeo and Juliet"
The supers used in big stage pro
ductions have the appetites of ele
phants. No foofor drink used on
the stage is too mean for them to
neglect-provided the property man
isn't looking. They drink the cold
tea as though it was really wine in
stead of the fake vintage. They
devour the ginger cake that passes
for pate de foic gras. They have
even been known to attack realistic
papier mache grapes and the ices
made of cotton batting.
The play on this particular night
was "Romeo and Juliet" and the
scene in Juliet's garden the piece de
resistance. The stage was filled
with apple trees in bloom. White
petals were scattered thickly on the
cocoa matting greensward. They
were .notreally apple blossoms, but
white, pulpy popcorn, substituted
for muslin flowers after many ex
ppriments, because they looked just
as well and lasted longer. The fake
blossoms differed from the popcorn
of the candy stores in one particu
lar. The firemen thought the pulpy
corn increased the danger from fire
and ordered the manager to squirt
a fireproofing mixtire on them.
The prompt book had this stage
direction at the climax of the third
act: "Romeo fights Tybalt. Mur
murs off L, changing to yells. All
on." On this evening there were
no murmurs, no yells, .no "11" to go
on. As the curtain fell Homeo went.

A Pox Hunt In Which a Locomotive
A very strange incident happened
in the Severn tunnel recently. Just
as an express train entered the tun
nel a soldier in a third class carriage
Rung open the door and attempted
to jump out. Fortunately one of
the passengers succeeded in seizing
the man's coat tails and with the aid
of other passengers held him there
head downward. They could notV
pull him back, for the sucion was
t6o great. - The communication
cord was pulled, the train stopped
and the rescued man, who, it Op
pears had suddenly become insane,
was.placed under arrest. ' A
This is not the first exciting inci-.
dent which has happened in the
great boring which carries the Great
Western railway beneath the bed of
the Severn. Some five years ago a
Cardiff commercial traveler went to
sleep in a train bound from Cardiff
to Bristol and, waking with a shock,
found himself lying in pitch dark
ness beside the permanent way in
How he got there he had not the
faintest idea. Probably he had walk
ed in his sleep. At any rate, he was
not much hurt, tliouh he had evi
dently been unconscious for sone
time. He had not the faintest idea
how far it was to the entrance nor
which way to go. - Soon he became
violently thirsty. He heard, water
trickling down the wall close by, but
when he -collected some in his hands
he found it was salt.
lie made a brave effort to find
his way out, but dizziness came on
and he fell unconscious. As he lay
there another traiin passed, and the
poor man must have had a. desper
ately narrow escape, for it was
found that his left boot heel had
been cut off and his ankle sprained.
Plate layers found him eventually
and carried himi to safety, He had
been six hours in the tunnel.
Some win iters ago a Welsh Iunnel
was the 'scene of ati most exciting
episode. One day in January, 1902,
the Carmarthenshire hounds found
a fox, which made at first straighit
for the coast, but, being turned by
60me villagers, took to the railway
line and ran into a long tunIel, fol
lowed by the w'hole pack. The mas

Ile was fully -i quarter of a mile
down the tunnel when a roaring
sound behi nd wa rned him that a
train had entered the tunnel. Al
mosf instant ly the glare of the 2
headlight lit the dripping walls, and
the horseman, clapping spurs to his
horse, began to gallop at full speed
through the darkness. Thuen fol
lowed a most exciting race for' life,

horse's p~ace, thme train thundering
By a sort of miracle the horseH
kept his feet, but the train gained
rapidly. At hast the white circle of g
the tunnel's mouth appear'ed, and
the dr'iver of the engine noticed the
black silhouette of trie rider against
the light and slackened speed.
Rlider, hounds and all came safely
out of the perilous predicament in
which they had plunged themselves.
Digging For Fish.

are in the habit of digging every
year, in the summer, the dry banks
of the Vergel river for fish, whichT
they dig out by hundreds, just as
they would potatoes. The mud4
l~umps are broken open, and the fish,
perhaps eight 01' ten inches long, '
will always be found alive and often "
frisky, as if just removed from its
