death of the queen of Siam, who was
as greatly loved as her consort. Some
years ago her majesty was boating
with ladles of the court in a lake in tha
gardens of the palace at Bangkok. The
boat overturned, and the queen could

The Paste Used by .Minstrel Perform
.ers When "Slacking Up."
The popular impression as to the ap-
plication of burnt cork by minstrel
?Kerf,r.mers a arIn gTaI is
that it is rubbed on the face and hands
of the player from a cork whose end is
arred in a-mvenlent ga jet This
Impression is,, however, incorrect Tbe
burnt cork nsed by minstrels and
others is the product of the theatrical
"paint factories," just as is any other
cosmetic or pigment employed by the
profession. . ' vv .
One house makes it in the following
manner: The corks are placed in three
tin vessels resembling wash boilers,
with holes punched in their sides and
bottom. Alcohol is sprinkled over the
corks, and they they are "fired." When
the corks have been properly, charred
they are placed In muslin sacks, which
are kneaded in barrels of water. This
operation forces the powdered charcoal
through the sacks into the water.
When all the charred corks have
been worked through the sacks into
the water in this way . the water is
drained through a close canvas sack,
and what remains in that sack is
ready for. the performers. The stuff
is put up in cans, from which, when
the minstrel is ready to "black up." he
takes a little of the black paste In his
hands and applies it to his face, neck
and sometimes his hands. New York

A CURIOUS BIRD.
The Crested Hoactzin When Hatched
Has Four Legs.
Tha crested hoactzin of British Gui
ana is the only survivor of a .certain
race of birds most of which are now
known only as fossils. The hoactzin
Inhabits the most secluded forests of
South America, and its survival be
yond its congeners is. doubtless owing
to its retiring habits and to the fact
that it feeds. on wild arum leaves,
which give its flesh a most offensive
flavor, rendering it unfit for food.
( The chief peculiarity of the hoactzin
consists in the fact that when It is
hatchedMt possesses four well develop
ed legs. The young birds leave the nest
and climb about like monkeys over the
adjoining limbs and look more like tree
toads than birds. '
The modification of the fore limbs
begins at once after hatching, when
the claws ot the digits fall off and the
whole clawlike hand begins to flatten
and become wing shaped.- Feathers
soon appear, and before full growth is
reached not a vestige remains of the
The adult birds not only have no
claws upon their wings, but their
thumbs even are so poorly developed
that one would hardly suspect that in
the nestlings we have the nearest ap
proach to a quadruped found among
existing birds. London Tit-Bits.
Tung Po and Teamaking.
There is but one way of making tea,
for- ) -
Unless the water boiling: be f
To pour on water spoils the tea.
The teapot itself should be heated
very hot before the tea is placed in it
and the boiling water poured on. It
6hould be scalding hot water or the
leaves will float to the top.
No less authority than Tung Po, the
Chinese poet, is quoted for a recipe for
teamaking. He says: "Whenever tea
is to be infused take water from a
running stream and boil it orer a live
ly fire. It is an old custom to use run
ning water, bored over a lively fire.
That from springs in the hills is said
to be best and river water the next,
while well water is the worst. A
lively fire is a clear, bright charcoal
fire. When making an infusion do not
boil the water too hastily. At first it
begins to sparkle like crabs' eyes, then
somewhat like fish's eyes, and lastly
It bolls up like pearls innumerable
springing and waving about. This is
the way to boil water."
