evidences arc given of the rapid
development of the sugar industry
iu that island, which will doubtless
soon surpass anything ever con
templated by the most sanguine.
With n crop this season of over
100,000 tous'aud the industry only
beginning to develop in Porto Rico,

As shown by our correspondent,
the new railway line just completed
has already contracted for 1 50,000
tons of sugar cane to be transported
over its lines and the several modern
factories have now offering them
more cane than they can grind. It
will be recalled that one of these
factories, Guanica, we believe,
belongs to the same interests as the
American sugar trust, and is an
immense establishment, up-to-date
in every respect.
We feel confident that the friends
of protection in this country who
have been advocating the develop
ment of our own home beet and
cane sugar industries, and yet who
acquiesced in the Cuban reciprocity
treaty and the low-duly arrangement
with Porto Rico, will soon find
themselves wondering why they
could ever have madesuch a mistake.
It will be recalled that even the
Ways and Means Committee, in
returning the reciprocity treaty to
the lower House of Congress with
its favorable report, used the phrase
that the treaty "did no injury to
any American industry." These
insidious, if not insincere, breaches
in our protective tariff system now
bid fair to destroy our domestic
sugar industry at no very remote

hand he held a bill. At that very
moment Senator Quay rose to
address the chair. In his hand he,
too, held a bill.
"Mr. Pres" said Mr. Cullom,
stopping short iu the middle of a
word as he beheld the Pcuusylvauian
standing iu beseeching attitude.
Quickly Mr. Cullom sat down.
Mr. Quay, not to be outdone in
politeness, sat down himself, and
then the two were just as they had
been before either tried to address
There was an infinitesimal pause,
such as the administration leaders
figured out between the end of the
extra and the regular sessions of
Congress. Then Senator Cullom
stood up again.
"Mr. Presi " but he proceeded
only one syllable farther than the
first time. By the same strange
fatality as that by which two persons
trying to pass each other on the
street sidestep simultaneously the
same way, Mr. Quay had again
arisen. Seeing him, only two or
three desks away, Mr. Cullom
quickly sank back again into his
seat. Aeain Mr. Quay did likewise.
It seemed impossible for either
Senator to sit or stand for any length
of time because of the desire to show
politeness cacti for the other.
"Arc these Alphonse and Gas
ton?" inquired Senator Gallinger,
in the midst of the general laughter,
which broke the spell.
Then Senator Cullom got the

Ludicrous Tongue Slips.
Players are as much a part of the
well-regulated human family in
which accidents arc bound to occur
as any one else, and the frequent
aud oftentimes ludicrous slips iu
dialogue during the presentation of
a play are proof of the fact, says
the Chicago Inter-Ocean.
It is told of an amateur iu a
Western city, playing a part in a
temperance drama, that he had the
line; "And I promiss never to drink
another drop." But thev' young
man, becoming a bit flustrated,
declared with confidence and dis
tinctness: "Aud I promise never
to .drop another driuk."
Blanche Weaver, an actress in
the company supporting Mr. Sothern
in "The Lady of Lyons" on one
occasion, had the line which runs:
"No divorce can separate a mother
from her son." But what Miss
Weaver said was "No divorce can
separate a Sothern from his mou."
Mr. Sothern was himself onthe
stage iu that scene. He saw the
topsy-turvey sentence coming
something, intuitive warned him of
it and he hastened to cover up the
lines with his next speech. But he
was not quite quick enough to con
ceal the blunder from the people iu
the foremost rows, aud a laugh
went up that interrupted the action
of the play aud caused wonder in
the rear of the house, where the
error had not been detected. Miss
Weaver was so overcome with mor
tification that when the curtain
went down she wept and would not

Instances of the curious mistakes
made by children have appeared
from time to time iu this column,
I says tue Uoulcii fenny, and we
1 hasten to add to their number the
following examples from the Liver
I pool Post: Oxygen is a thing that
I has eight sides. The cuckoo never
I lays its own eggs. A mosquito is
a child of black and white parents.
A blizzard is the inside of a hen.
A meridian is the name of the place
where they keep time. "Parasite"
is the slang name given to an in
habitant of Paris; it ought tq be
written "Parisian." The following
has an odd ring about it, and ought
to be true: "Izaak Walton was
such a good fisher that men called
him 'Judicious Hooker?' " While
iu this next instance phonetics is
certainly to blame: "The equator
is a menagerie lion running round
I the earth through Africa."
An Indian 011 the Horse.
The following remarkable essay
on the horse is said to be from the
pen of an Indian student: "The
horse Is a very noble quadruped,
but when he is angry he will not
do so. He is ridden on the spinal
cord by the bridle, and sadly the
driver places his foots on the stir
rups and divides his lower limbs
across the saddle and drives his
animal, to the meadow. He has
four legs; two are on the front side
and two are afterward. These are
the weapons on which he runs.
He also defends himself by extend
ing these in the rear iu a parallel
direction toward his foe, but this
he does only when he is iu au ag
gravating mood. There is no ani
mal like the horse. No sooner they
see their guardian or master than
they always cry for food, but it is
always at the morning time. They
have got tails, but not so long as
the cow and such other like animals."
A Pleasing Incident.
One of the pleasing incidents of
the Waimea visit was the presenta
tion to Gov;rnor Carter of a five
dollar gold piece by Kahoohano
hano, au old native. It used to be
the custom of the Hawaiiaus to
bring gifts to their chiefs, aud this
old mati made his offering to help
alongthe Governor, whom he hailed
as the greatest of all chiefs. The
offering was accepted and Mr. Carter
offered to be the keiki (child) of the
old man, but the latter declined and
said he was the keiki, and the Gov
ernor the father of them all. What
made the incident the more notable
was the fact that Kalioohanohauo
is quite a poor man, and the five
dollars probably represented the
bulk of his worldly wealth. He is
the oldest native on the Parker
ranch aud earns his living now by
skinning dead cattle about the place.
Kor these hides he receive twenty
five cents apiece aud naturally his
gift to the Governor meant months
of labor to him.
