Too Lazy to Be ft'cE or Poor.
A lazier man than the average Uur
nun it would bo extremely hard to
find. When it is absolutely mcessaiy
for him to work he generally hits upon
some method which will'save him a lot
of exertion. If he wishes 1 1 cultivate a
piece of ground he sets, light to the
brushwood as a cheap, easy and ef-
ficacious method of preparing the soil.
For two or three years, he cultivates
that piece of land and then sets light
to another spot, allowing thejungle to
grow in the old place, which will he
ready for reburning when the other
ground wants a rest. Rico-growers
dispense with plows, turning loose in
stead several buffaloes, which cut up
the saturated soil with their hoofs.
When a ISurman has earned a ' little
money he immedi itely pr cecds to
spent it all, for the Burmese have no
ambition to be rich aiu never hoard.
, Consequently there arj: no large laH2
owners and there being no aristocracy
"the people are as near being nn an
. equality as p 'ssible. Poor people are
about as rare as rich people and the
only beggars to be met with are the
lepers, who sit on the steps of the pa
godas. Bu9iness Enterprise.

"Talk about business enterpsise,"
said Frank L. l'erelej' "Away back in
'85, we had a young fellow with us
who was getting $15 and his board.
The night Jumbo was killtd in St.
Thomas, this boy developed himself.
We were all sympathizing with poor
old Jumbo and wondering how we
. could replace him. The youngster was
thinking of something else. You know
. ..the tail of an elephant has at the very
tip a bunch of thick hair, very much
like a brush. This boy had got over
the fctiGH alid-lrtfl nulled every hair
out of Jumbo's tail. Ills business at
the circus was to pell baloons to chil
dren. Well, there were seventy-six of
those thick hairs, :ind at the sh w the
next afternoon he ivas selling them for
$1 apiece as relics of the great giant.
He sold seventy-five of them and prac
tically found $75. The other one he
kept for himself .and still wears it as
his mascot." .
Subduing; the Waves.
The excellent use that has recently
been made of oil fojr allaying the force
of storm Waves whenvhe steamship Um
bra was disabled at 1 has le.ul to the
appe.irenceofv.iiiouis improved methods
of sp 'ending the oil on the face of the
w. ters. Ciptain Ctluvcs' new appira
tus consists of a cpst iron reservoir
above a vertical cylinder. A heavy
piston working in the cylinder, attach
ed to a tubular rod and acting by its
own weight, ejects the oil on the water
through a delivery pipe. The appli
ance is fixed as near the bows of the
ship as possible. There are two dc
ivery pipes, each fitted at the end with
a conical nozzle, the aperture of which
fs nit more than .one-sixteenth of an
inch in diameter, running from the low
er'part of the cylinder and passing out
at the b.ws ne.ir the lead line. The
oil issues forth in a fine but steady jet
several feet above the bows. If the
'vessel is in motion, the oil is thrown
away from the b nvs with the broken
water as she makes her way onward,
and the effect is at oece apparent.
