How to Eat Leather.
The Infamous Captain Morgan and
his piratical crew were sometimes in
tight places at Panama and on one
occasion were reduced to eating their
leathern bags. "Some persons," says
one of the company, Exquemelln
(whose narrative is^ reproduced in "The
Buccaneers In the West Indies"), "who
never were out ol' their mothers' kitch
ens may ask how these pirates could
eat, swallow and digest these pieces
of leather, so hard and dry. Unto
whom I only answer: That could they
once experiment what hunger, or, rath
er, famine is, they would certainly find
the manner by their own necessity, as
the pirates did. For these first took
the leather and sliced it in pieces. Then
did they beat lt between tgo stones
and rub lt, often dipping lt % the wa
ter of the river, to render it by these
means supple a: d tender. Lastly, they
scraped off the hair and roasted or
broiled it upon the fire. And being
thus cooked they cut lt into small mor
sels and ate it, helping it down with
frequent gulps of water, which by
good fortune they had right at hand."
French Official Red Tape.
Two men went to Nice lately from
Italy to attend a funeral and took
with them a wreath of flowers to
which was fastened a silk ribbon bear
ing an Inscription. - They were in
formed at their destination that they
would have to pay a duty equivalent
to $25. The mourners protested, say
ing that the wreath was made of nat?
ural flowers on which there was no
duty, but they were informed that the
dutiable part was the silk and that,
according to the tariff laws, duty must
be collected on the gross weight of
the memorial emblem. Then the men
agreed to throw the ribbon away, but
this could not be done on French soil,
and so they Journeyed back to the
frontier, where they disposed of the
ribbon, boarded a train for Nice with
the ribbonless wreath and arrived tee
late for the funeral.
Keep In the Sunshine. .
There are only two kinds of people in
the world-the people who live in the
shadow and gloom and those who live
on the sunny side of the street These
shadowed ones are sometimes called
pessimists, sometimes people of melan
choly temperament; sometimes they
are called disagreeable people. But
wherever they go, their characteristic
ls this-their shadows always travel OB
before them. These peep?e never bear,
their own burden, but expose all their
wounds to others. They are all so
busy looking down for pitfalls and
sharp stones and thorns on which to
step that they do not even know that
there are any stars in the sky. These
folks live on the wrong side of the
street And yet it is only twenty feet
across to the other sidewalk, where
sunshine always lies.-Newell Dwight
One of the finest examples of "paw
ky" humor is placed to tho credit of
an old gardener who was in the serv
ice of Admiral of the Fleet Sir Alex
ander Milne. The admiral was a
grand old man, full of goodness and
kindness, but a strict disciplinarian.
The gardener having omitted to do
something which he had been told to
do, his master said to him:
"When I was on board ship I would
have bad you put in irons for disobe

It was the evening when her week

"I wish* I had something new and en

said her father,- "I'd have brought
