What Two Flags Ref resent
England's national flag has been
called "a triplet of crosses," for lt ls
.composed of the cross of St. George,
the cross of St Andrew, and the cross
of St. Patrick. Thus: The flag of "St
George for merrie England," a red
cross on a white ground, the red lines
drawn straight from top to bottom,
and from side to side; the flag of St
Andrew for Scotlnnd, a white cross on
a blue ground; the flag of St. Patrick
for Ireland, a red cross on a white
ground, the narrow red lines drawn
from corner to corner. By placing the
cross of St. George on that of St. An
drew we have "the Jack," as ordered
in 1606 by James I, whose signature
was always "Jacques;" hence the ex
pression, "tue Jack." By laying the
cross of St Patrick over that of St.
Andrew sndthen placing that of St.
George over both, we have "the Union
Jack," as borne since tho union with
Ireland In 1800. Au eloquent Canadi

and the English flag wave together
with singular beauty and harmony,

Young girls as a rule prefer to wear
any neck jewels they adoptin the form
of bead strings very flat about the

are'oftenest of diamonds "and pearls,

Sweet Girl Gardeners.
One of the most interesting sights j
within a day's journey of London is j
tho woman's branch of the Swanley
Horticultural college at Hextable, a |
place where sweet girl gardeners and '
farmers are made and trained. Here
one may see women working at almost
every branch of outdoor labor, (iirls
in sailor hats and sensible costumes
learn tho mysteries of hoeing potatoes,
bedding plunts, caving for and feeding .
ponltiyr grape culture, bee culture,
and, .in fact, every branch ci yvmr'b
connected with life on a farm.
The 37 women who are students at
Swanley at present get to work at 9
and dig and delve until 4.30. After
that their time is their own for tonnis,
golf, or any other outdoor amusement
which they prefer. The grounds of
the college are 47 acres in extent and
every inch of space is utilized. There
are fowl runs, g*rnpe houses, apiaries,
tomato houses, farm lands and flower
gardens, and in addition to learning
the care of all these things the stu
dents become adepts in the use of the
rake, the hoe and the plow. Empress
Frederick is the patroness of the col
lege, and many of England's leading
women are on her advisory staff.
These Swanley trained, women are
in great demand for responsible posi
tions .11 over England and find remun
erativo employment almost as soon as
they graduate. At Lady Henry Som
erset's industrial farm colony Miss
Smith, a recent graduate, organizes
and directs all the horticultural work;
Miss Morrison, another graduate,holds
a position with the London Public Gar

Tho keeper,of a shop in an English

doorbell of a house in the next street,
only to have it opened by the man he
had just seen.

Cruel Cattlo Urands Kcfuged.
P. J. Quigley, the State brand
clerk, recently received his first ap
plication from a stock man for a solid
brand for his cattle. As tho brand
wanted is so large that it . would be
cruelty to animals to burn it upon
them the application will be refused.
The application was made by Amos A.
Lee of Falcon, Col. Following tho
custom of stock men in making appli
cations for a new brand, he sent in
threo designs, marking them first, sec
ond, and third. The first choice was
a solid brand, representing a woman's
stocking, a little over ten inches long.
The second represented an oak leaf,
five inches in diameter; the third and
last,a shoe six inches long and au in:h
and a half wide. Mr. Quigly..will not
issue any of them because they are
too large and solid; burning them
upon the stock would subject the ani
mals to too much unnecessary pain.
The brand of the stocking he
will not issue at all. The oth
er two he is willing to issue if
Mr. Lee will consent to use lines in
stead of the solid braud. The number
of brands recorded in the secretary
of state's office, July 1, was 22,378.

A story of his Santiago experience
was givon to tho newspaper men in
Newark, Ni J., by Chaplain Gttllonpe
Of tho Ninth United States infantry
and rector of St Paul's Episcopal
church in that city. The more inter?
csting parts of the story are as follows:
"The very first thing that I want to
say to you,"'said tho chaplain, after
an interchange of greetings, "is about
the members of your own craft. The
ncc?, spaper mon at the front deserve
ns much credit as tho soldiers. At all
times thoy were willing and ready to
render every aid in their power and
put up with every inconvenience.
"On June 29 I was Bimstruck while
aiding the wounded, carrying water
and food, and was ordered to the hos?
pital at Siboney by Lieutenant>Colonel
Ewers, commanding our . regiment.
Two days later, on July 1, while still
at the hospital, I heard of the fighting
at the front, and, thinking that it was
my duty to be there, and feeling well
enough to make the journey, I walked
the eight miles to the firing line. This
was in the morning, and all that day
I worked with the doctora, helping
them with the wounded,
"I had been at this all day, and at
about 4 o'clock in the afternoon ?
made my way to a small clump of trees,
near which there were some wounded
men, in the endeavor to cool off a bit,
for I was still suffering slightly from
tho effects of my sunstroke and the
sun had been too much for me. At
this time I was about half, a
mile belliud our firing line, which
was about a thousand yards from the
enemy. I was facing the firing line
and heard nothing coming, nor did I
see anything. It is impossible for
me to tell how I was hurt, but the
next thing I knew I waa regaining
consciousness. I was lying oU ray
left side, and at first I was stlre that
my right arm was broken. I sat up
and began feeling myself all over in a
dazed sort of way, tryiug to find ont
where I was hurt. My first sensation
was that of loneliness; Oil, ? thought^

Tber? was but one ambulance,, and
that had to be dragged by men; as the

to.tho front-. The consequence-was
that the wounded were compelled td
go it on their own hook, with such
assistance as they could give one ,an:
"By the time I reached the road
night had fallen. The moon was par
tially out, and by its half light the
poor fellows could bo seen dragging
themselves along as best they could.
Here and there a man had dropped at
the side of the road and was feebly
calling for water. Some of the men;
most of them in fact, had been with
out water or food for over thirty-six
hoare aud their suffering was fearful,
"As I went p.loug giving what as
sistance I could here and there, the
sight made au impression on my mind
that I shall never forget. "Words can
not describe it. Why, one poor fel
low" (and here the tears came to the
chaplain's eyes) "had been struck hy
an exploding shel!; his right foot was
gone, and his leg, from the knee down,
was nothing but a mass of pulp.
He had gotten a comrade to out a
branch from a tree, and this lie, had
i bound about the .stump with wisp's of
grass, so that the leaves dragged along
the ground and protected the wound.

himself over those eight mileson all

and when he reached the hospitaHook
his place at the end of the line of
about 600 wounded without a murmur
or complaint. When the doctora
found him, as they did in goiug along
the line looking for the worst cnBea
he was calmly chewing on the end of
a plug of tobacco. The doctors all
said that he had no excuse to be liv
ing, and that he ought to havo died
from the loss of blood, but they fixed
him up, and he is now doing nicely
and will recover.
"Oiie way in which the Spanish djd
much damage was with their sharp
shooters. The officers tied the men
away up iu trees in sr.."h a way that
they couldn't get down. Each man
was given a canteen of water and a
box of cartridges. They would re-;
main quiet until we had advanced
beyond them and they were in our
rear, aud would then open fire, pick
ing off stragglers and small detach
ments with the greatest ease. It was
impossible for us to locate them, as
they had smokeless powder, and we
could not see thom in the trees. In
this way we lost many men."
Chaplain Galloupe found the cli
mate of Cuba better than he had ex
pected. While it waa exceedingly
wa"m during the day, the nights were
cool. There is but a short period of '
twilight, night coming soon on the
heels of sunset. There wa8 a shower
nearly every day. At noon, with un
failing regularity, the clouds would
begin to gather, and promptly at 2
o'clock the rain would begin. From
then until 4. there would be the sever
est kind of a thunder shower, after
which it would clear up. At -12 at
nigbt it would rain again, a cold, hard
rain. This would last about two hours
also. These raius come BO regularly

LIABILITY FOR SEA HORROR.
Captain of tho "William Brown Convicted
of Forcing Fnssengors Overboard.
Since the terrible fate that befell the
passengers on board the French steam

has arisen as to tho liability of the
French crew under tho charges
brought against them in connection
with the sinking of the ship. It is
well settled that tba law in England
and the United States is adverse to
The leading American case is that
of tho people against Holmes, which
was tried in Philadelphia by the bril
liant lawyer, David Paul Brown, ns
prosecuting attorney. The story is
anJnteresting one. The ship Willium
Brown sank off Nova Scotia in March,
1841? The passengers and crew over
loaded the boats. After drifting for
several days a storm came up, making
it evident that tho overloaded boat
which Holmes commanded would b?
Bwamped and all lost. Under these
Circumatances ho gave the order to
lighten the boat; Twelve passengers
Were thrown overboard, and two sis-1
ters Voluntarily jumped into the sea.
The remainder of the passengers in
the boat and the crew were saved and
brought to Philadelphia. Holmes
was indicted and tried. In his de
fence the above circumstances were
shown and additional ^evidence ad
mittod that Holmes was one of the
Most active in saving the passengers
and getting them in the boat; that at
the risk of his life he had personally
Saved"several. Nevertheless Holme?
was convicted, and tho United States
court sustained tho conviction on thc
ground that the contract of the sailor
bound him to use every meaus itt his
power, even to the sacrifice of his own
life, to delivt r each passenger; at the
port for which he shipped.
The point of jurisdiction was raised,
When it was held that the flag con
verted tho ship and her apparel, in
cluding the boats; into national terri
tory. Ad to acts done in the waters
of the high seas, it was further held
that the contract controlled as to tho
sailors, The court also held that as
to the same acts dono between pas
sengers on the high seas a different
rhlo prevailed; iii the absence of inter
national law as to them they owed no
duty to one auother; they Avere, from
the mom?nt of leaving the ship; re
mitted td their natural rights, and the
law of self-preservation prevailed;
Much sympathy throughout th?
country was manifested for Holmes iri
this Case from its purely doctrinal law;
and, its beiug a case of first impres
sion, his sentence was commuted to
imprisonment. After 18 months he
was released, but the principle that

Different Form.i of Milwaukee.
The origin of the word "Milwau
kee" has long been a matter of dis
pute, chiefly owing to the fact that the
old settlors have been unable to deter
mine the poiuton account of a singu
lar contrariety of information. The
meaniugs ascribed.to the word have
only been equaled in number by the
modes of spelling-and these have not
been a few, The various ways in

Mnny Shots From Our Blt? Guns.
It was the idea when we first began
to manufacture big guns that the
larger ones were good for only a cer
tain number of firings, and that then
it was not safe to use them. But our
American guns havo proved the fallacy
of this supposition. The guns on for
eign ships have worn out in times past,
and it was supposed that ours might
do the same when used too much. But
such has not been the case. Scarcely
any of our big guns have not been
fired more thau 100 times, and none
of them has yet shown any sign of
weakness9. This shows that the guns
manufactured in tho United States are
of a better quality. Tho manufac
turers here surmounted the defect of
the European guns, aud 13-inch guns
ere now found to be ns capable of fre
quent firing as the guns of snia,U?r

LucyX. Verrill, describing her stud
ies of ants, in Popular Science News,
tells about the ant funerals which she
has witnessed. When an ant dies, she
says, about thirty of Its surviving
comrades gather about lt and two of
them carry the body, while the others
go along lh a straggling procession.
Having found a spot to their liking,
the ants scratch a little hole In the
earth, put the dead ant In lt and then
cover up the body. Afterward they
return in procession to theil' home,
the ant-hill. ''I have seen this cere
mony performed again and again,"
says the writer, "but the ante will
never bury an ant from another com
munity; a stranger ls always deroured
instead." This story is not mor? won
derful than many others that observ
ers of the doings of ants have record
tree Climbing Fish.
India has fishes which climb trees
and migrate from stream to stream in
dry season. Florida can match her
with a great snail which climfcs trees
and feasts on the young birds, like
his fellow robber, the blue crab. The
shell of this snail is opaline, and al
most as transparent as glass. Its
shape is odd and handsome This
snail is edible and not unlike those
found on the coast of France and
which are so much In demand In the
markets of Paris. In some places they
are so abundant that a sh?ke of a
tree will bring down a bushel of them.

The Little Brother Was Urgent.

lie rang the bell her little brother
came to the door, relates the Cleve

"Good evening," said the little
"Good evening," said the youth. "Is
your sister at home, Georgie?"
<TYes, sir," replied the bo.v, "she's
home. Do you want to see her?"
"Yes," said the youth. "Please tell
her I am here."
"Won't you come in?" inquired the
"No, thank you," said the youth,
"I'll wait on tlie porch."
"Better come in," said the boy.
"No," said tlie youth.
"Botter," said tho boy.
"Xo," said the youth.
"Well, maybe you know best," said
"Yes," smifed the youth.
So the boy went in, 'and the youth
sat down on the porch and propped
himself against the post.
Pretty soon, with much rustling of
skirts. Miss Alice appeared In the

Didn't you notice the porch had just

And then poor Skimple remembered
with a sickly smile how urgent her lit

But that wouldn't remove the paint.

GABRYING heavy burdens, washing, iron
ing, scrubbing and other laborious duties
are productive of an enormous amount of
suffering among women who are already weak
. and prostrated by the ravages of female dis
': eases. The perfonnaace of these heavy labors
j is obligatory to many women, but the suffer
ing is not. This feature of the household bur
dens may soon be removed if women will only
take the trouble to learn how. A few bottles of

will regulate all menstrual irregularities, and
restore the entire female organism to its
proper condition. Take St. Joseph's Liver
Regulator in small doses if there is any ten
