A FAMOUS BLUNDERER.
Some Bulls Alad.' by France's Popular Sim
M. Calino, the popular French sim
pleton, who performs in the humorous
literature of France much the same
function that the traditional Paddy
does in English literature, has been
made the subject of a grave study, in
which his innocent stupidities are
carefully analyzed. He is nothing
more or less than a harmless blun
derer and complacent lack-wit found
in all ages and countries. In France
his sayings reflect, however, some
thing of the picturesqueness which is
characteristic of the nation.
Canno's blunderings, it seems, began
at an early age. Ho had not craft
enough to tell a lie that would hold
water for a moment One day at
school he got iuto a fight with a com
panion, and came home with a gash
on his forehead.
"How did you get that cut?" asked
"What cut, papa?"
"Why, that great gash on your fore
"I bit myself ther?, papa."
Later in life Calino delievered him
self of the following bit of wisdom:
"As for me, I don't care so much for
the sun as I do for the moon. You
see, the sun only comes after it gets
daylight, when we could see just as
well without it, but the moon's some
use-it shines at night." .
Early one morning, when Calino was
out with his gun, he saw a robin in
the garden of his friend Cai?'Ue. He
aimed at it, but it dropped below the
top of the wall. Then Calino went
into the house, crept upstairs softly,
stole into Camille's bedroom without
waking Camille, who was in bed,
pointed his gun out of the window at
the robin and fired-bang!
Camille leaped out of bed in wild
c-infusion and alarm:
"W-w-why-w-w-what's the matter?
"Oh, did I wake you up?" said Ca
lino. "I pulled the trigger just as
softly as I could."
An Uncomfortable Superstition.
A very uncomfortable superstituion
prevails in the Minich Province.
Whenever a pigeon-house is to be
made the fellaheen consider that the
pottery used in its construction should
be baked by the help of a human
body. A pigeon-house was to be erected
in the beginning of this month at the
village of Beni Soomrook. in this pro
vince, and this necessary preliminary
of its construction was not forgotten.
A young child was first caughr, and,
in spite of his struggles, was put into
an oven and burnt alive while the pot
tery was baked with the aid of this
human holocaust. Two men, one of
them a potter by trade, have been ar

STRANGE NEWS SERVICE.
MYSTERIOUS WAY IN WHICK TIDINGS
SPREAD IN THE PACIFIC.
Information About Secret Plain Diffused
from Island to Island in a Manner
Most Unaccountable-Some Remarkable
Instances-First News of Samoan Storm,
A great surprise which awaits a new*
comer in any south Pacific archipelago
is the way in which his acts and plans
become known, not only to those
whom they may concern^ but even.
more distinctly to those whom they
do not. The first South Sea surprise
is that tho islander of fact never stirs
a finger to put himself in line with
the islander of the books.
lt is practically impossible to trace
the channel of the news. One may
surround himself with servants who
know not a word of English and may
be as secret as a lodge in discussing
plans, yet knowledge of them spreads
with speed and with an accuracy
which becomes less and less in pro
portion as the distance is greater.
One is almost tempted to believe that
the news is carried by a bird in the
air. And it is not only things done
and words spoken that aie thus pub
lished, even unspoken plans become
kno u, to the great hindrance of busi
Some explanation may bo imagined
to account for the rapid spread of
news from place to place on a single
islaud, or from islam! to island of a
single archipelago. Eut the mind
cannot comprehend the diffusion
of knowledge from archipelago to
archipelago, where there is no
intercommunication except by tho
mo'it roundabout ways. Yet news
spreads from islander to islander
along channels which they either can
not or will not explain, and from the
islander it comes to the white mau.
Such news is sometimes accurate,
oftener quite wrong; but the nmn wise
iu the ways of the beach knows that
something has happened and awaits
Here is au instance: Last year a
distinguished studeut uf the Maoris
of New Zealand, S. Percy Smith, sur
veyor-general of that colony, made an
extended tour of Polynesia. Before
going to Apia, his last stop was at
Karotonga, GOO miles away. He weut
to Apia by the only way of steamship
travel, from Earotouga to Auckland,
on one line, and from Auckland to
Apia ou another, no vessel having ar
rived at Apia direct from Barotonga
within a year. On the hour of his
arrival the Apia collector of customs
commented on a greenstone watch
charm w hich he was wearing, and said
that he had learned of the interest
w ith which the native people of Raro
tongo had listeued to the traveler's
account of the veneration Avith which
the Maoris regard the jade as an
almost sacred ornament. The collec
tor of customs could not recall when
or where he learned that fact-he just
knew it, that was all. This trivial
story had apparently in some mysteri
ous way come faster than the traveler
Yet auother instance: The press as
sociations of this country had accounts
of the strained relatious of the Ameri
can and the German squadrons in Apia
harbor as they existed in February,
1889. This news was published in
at point-blank range in Apia naroor.
German ships were sunk, American
ships were sunk, man}' lives were
lost, it was said. The story could be
traced back no further than Washing
ton. It came out of the navy depart
ment in au unofficial way, and if the
officials traced it still further back to
any source that fact was never made
known. In the course of a day or so
all the papers pointed out the inac
curacy of the news and showed how
impossible it would be to have any
sort of information before the fixed
date of the mail. Now this story was
false in every point. There was no
naval combat poiut blank in Apia har
bor nor at any range in Samoan wa
ters, yet all who were familiar with
the south sea knew that somethiug
had hap2)ened and that the news had
come through the south sea news ser
vice and waited for the facts. Note
the date. It was the end of the third
w eek in March that this news was
published. The April mail .up from
Samoa brought the news of the mem
orable hurricane, ot" the wreck of the
Adler, the Eber and the Olga of the
German navy; of . the wre?k of the
Trenton and the Vandalia and of the
beaching of the Nipsic of Admiral'
Kimberley's squadron. And this took
placent the beginning of the third
week in March.-New York Bun.

a great flourish. When I got out I
asked him what he would have done if

them and shrugged his shoulders and

MONEY IN TRUCK FARMING.
Success of a Collego Gradante Wh?
Thought Professions Overcrowded.
Peter E. Scblegel is a recent gradu
ate of Bucknel! university at Lewis
burg, iu Pennsylvania. He saw that
the professions were crowded, so he
concluded not to waste any time on
the law, mediciue or theology. Ha
made up his miud to be a small farmer.
He took a four-acre tract between
Pricetown, Pa., and Fleetwood, and
began a systematic, scientific cultiva^
tion of the soil. He now makes a?
much money as many farmers do on
100 acres. He is an expert truck gar
dener, having worked for four years
on a high-class truck farm in Florida.
In addition to this he had experience
on-several large farms near the col
lege. Not only has he exhibited more
th.in ordinary tact in marketing Iiis
products, but whatever he raises is of
the finest quality, and consequently
commands a price far above the aver
age. One of tho specialties of the
Schlegel truck gorden are melons.
He raised on half an acre 2000 melons,
which he sold in bulk at six and eight
cents apiece. Melon raising must be
done scientifically, if one wishes to
receive perfect fruit. The trouble with
most of the melons on the market is
thnt they lack sweetness. Mr. Schle
gel's are sweet, tender aud juicy. He
attributes his success to a system of
fertilization. He adds certain ele
ments to tho soil to produce sacchar
ine matter in the melons, and gets
what he wants.
Mr. Schlegel also makes an especial
effort to raise vegetables early or late
in the season, slates The Sun. He
knows just what vegetables and what
varieties are best adapted to the dif
ferent seasons ?nd the weather condi
tions. Last year he planted peas in
the open ground as early as March 18,
and produced an early crop. Then he
planted some that were picked and
marketed late in October at good
prices. His experience has taught
him tbat peas can stand wet and cold
weather as well, but readily suffer un
der hot and dry conditions. A white
frost seldom hurts peas. Mr. Schle
gel's gardens are elevated to such an
extent and slope iu such a manner
that the ground becomes fit for culti
vation several weeks earlier in spring
than the average soil. He raises all
sorts of vegetables, and selects the
varieties in accordance with the tastes
of his customers. He is a strong ad
vocate of small farms, and says if col-'
lege men would bucklo down to work
on five acres of ground, and bring
their brain work to action they would
not need to be hard up in the profes
sions. He is in good health and en
joys being his own boss without ex
cessively hard labor. He keeps a
horse,. two cows, hens and pigeons,
and all yield something for his purs9
or his table.
? KILLED BY THIER FRIENDS,
Spanish Sholls Aimed nt the Men innie
Fell on Morro Castle.
Lieutenant Hobson tells iu The Cen
tury why it was that the Spanish offi
cers at Morro Castle believed the col
lier Merrimac to be an armored man
lt was not long before the governor
of the Morro came, making me a most
cordial visit. He was followed by the
have been a fragment resulting from
their own fire, at which the colonel
became serious, as though a new and
unwelcome thought was passing
through his mind. He, too, had taken
us for an armored vessel forcing our
way through, and what he 3aid about,
our fire puzzled me. Thc next time
Charette came in he told me that
wounded men were being operated on
in the room just above the men's cell,
and that the blood was running
down the wall, and had run down the
clues of his hammock, so that he had
to change its position. When I had
a chance to speak to him and to the
others afterward, they said that both a
Spauish sergeant and a Spanish pri
vate had told them that the blood
came from the men we had wounded
-that we had killed fourteen and
In a visit to the Morro after the
surrender I was very much puzzled to
find frosh gashes and imprints of vari
ous sizes in the rear wails as though
it had been attacked from the inshore
side, while we bad attacked only from
the sea. Every indication seemed to
point to the conclusion that the Spani
ards firing at the Merrimac had struck
their own men across the channel.
This was the more to be expected
from the horizontal fire. Morro,
though elevated, was in the line of
tire from the Beina Mercedes, whose
projectiles, exploding on the Alerri
mac, doubtless showered tho banks
and the rear of Morro beyond. No
wonder, then, that they took us for
au armored man-of-war.
A Town Without Police.
Together they died-the year 1898
and the funny old night watch of
Limerick. It was by a very narrow
squeak that the verdict was given
against the watch, its death sentence
being decreed by fourteen against
thirteen voten of the corporation. But
the dead watch will not be unavenged.
The police decline to undertake the
night work of the Treaty city, hav
ing no legal authority to discharge
such duty. The inspector general of
the constabulary, in his communica
tions with the Limerick Corporation;
intimate d that if an act of parliament
were obtained empowering the police
to do night duty, the additional force
would cost about $6625 per annum.
This question, however, is left for the
new council to deal with. In the
meantime there may be high jinks in
Limerick every night by those who
are inclined to amusa themselves in
night escapades. -New Ireland.
Soino Wonderful Nal ural Forces.
New forces in nature are being con
stantly discovered, and nobody but an
expert attempts to describe them with
accuracy. Some of the experiments
border on the miraculous. There is
that one, for instance, with liquefied
air in which quicksilver , is frozen.
The mercury is poured into a mould
having a hammer shape, and is sub
jected to the temperature of liquid air
two hundred and forty degrees below
zero, from which it come3 out in so
solid a form that it can be used to
drive nails. For an hour its solidity
of form is preserved. Then there is
anothar experiment, seemingly still
more marvellous. Liquefied air is
brought into contact with a lump of
ice, and the latent heat in the ice boils
ihe liquefied air. Yet water freezes
at thirty-two.-Harper'3 Bazar.

The Toed Twin.*.
The highest-priced freaks ever
shown in this country were the Tocci
twins, who received a salary of $900
a week for a four weeks' engagement.
They wer two boys with but one pair
of legs between them, the bodies con
necting at the waist, both bodies and
legs being perfect and well-formed.
They were constantly worrying about
the high price of living in this country,
and in spite of their large salary
spent as little as they could possibly
?a* ?long with. They now have a
and beautiful place near their
e town in Italy, and are persons
eat distinction there.

Soiled too, indeed, is his suit of tweed,
But little cares he, I trow.

And we hear her say: "He dirt away, ??
Tis this that gives ta hope."
So he takes the shining treasure,
And laughing with delight,
Cries: "See it float, the magic Boat
That makes my home so bright."

Five Lives for One Rifle.
One of the terras of the "pacifica
tion" of the Philippine islands required
the surrender of all the arms aeld by
the insurgents to the Spaniards. It
is believed that this condition was
faithfully fulfilled, so that before
Aguinaldo's arrival- in Cavite there
were no modern firearms in the hands
of the natives except such-as they
had captured in hand to hand fights
with the Spanish troops. Yet by the
time Aguinaldo was ready to move
across the bay into Cavite province the
rebels had taken 479 Mauser rifles
from their oppressors. How was It
done? Well, every rifle so captured
meant that from one to Ave Filipinos
had been killed in the savage onslaught
of half naked men armed only with
machetes upon disciplined troops arm
ed wi th the best magazine rifles. When
a sr . ill body of Spanish soldiers would
be o*, the' march through some narrow
defile in the swamps they would sud
denly find a hundred rebels swarming
around them, and the sharp home
made blades of the natives would cut
down from ten to twenty of the' Span
iards before the latter could get their
rifles at work. If the Filipinos suc
