The good father was finishing his
mass when they brought t?im the
prisoners. It waa a wild spot among
the Arichnlegui mountains,
A fallen Wk in which a fig tree
had plunged its twisted trnivk form

Two cracked water coolers took
the placo of vases, and when tho
??.crist(in, Migu??; who wte assist*

order to d?mge the .position of the

jingling in his cartridge box.

What a singularsight it was
this priestly commander officiating
in the midst of his soldiers 1 And
how plainly . the double existence of
the Cabecilla, showed itself upon his
countenance-the ecstatic air, the
hard features, further accentuated
hythe bronzed complexion;pf the sol
Idier in the field, and asceticism with
out pallor, in which was lacking the
shadow of the cloister; small black,

By a miracle that morning the
H father was, in a clement mood. The
B mass in the open air, his success of
the previous day and also tho clieer
fl fulness of Easter, yet felt by this
fl ?trange priest, cast upon his face a
B ray of joy and kindness. As soon aa

We ate told in one of the garru

Parsons dined together there was
"more hilarity, moro quaint and

than ever wa- seen exhibited on the
In Ned Shuter, as in most come

vein of pathos, even of eyn icism.
Referring to his origin, which is
shrouded in mystery, he onco said,

ms contemporaries marveled at
his keen understanding of character
and his irresistible humor, and. one
verdict was to the effect that neither
on the French nor on the English
stage could any one be found to
whom he. could bo compared. Dib

waa indolence, but eccentric quali
ties will naturally be accompanied
by eccentric conduct. Thus we per
ceive in his acting great inequalities,
but those parts of it that were ster

Shuter possessed great brilliance
of mind and hated to be called upon
by every company he sat with to do
some bit of clowning. Upon one oc
casion of this kind he assumed an
air of preternatural gravity and
steadfastly refused to "show off" be
fore his hosfs guests. After the
meal was over one of the company

hearty, promised to do so. Shuter
picked up his hat and cane and

Bears Like Turtle Eggs.
In the spring thc female logger
head comes ashore and scoops out a
pit with her hind legs in tao sand
on the south side of a shoal. Then
she lays from 150 to 200 eggs in
the hole and covers them np again
with the sand, leaving them te he

Bears are ever so, fond of turtle
eggs of till'sorts, and they dig ?]
the nests wherever they can' fin
them, gobbling amazing quantities.
I have known as;many as thirteen
nests to be robbe?! by a,Bingle bear

Tho ability - toVv?eineinber.' faces is
both instinctive omboneof irtuning,
lay? a detective. It xrould be difficult
for -mo to e^min'to e>novico howat

consciously purs >w oil the tin\a We
watch faces in the street. Hun
dreds pass without exciting more
than a passing glasse. Suddenly
one comes in view which makes us
take tho second look. I cannot tell !
you exactly why. Wo may have
never seen the face before but there
is something about it-just what,
well, wo know itiisn*t straight. By
straight w* mean that the wearer
of that face . either ia now or olde
has been a criminal.

Tho Pitcher Plant.
Among-the many vegetable wa
ders the pitcher plant or huntsman's
cup is the most interesting. The
plant grows wild in peat bogs in
northern Ohio and is much valued
as a vegetable curiosity. Therplant
grows in clumps; leaves all radical
and hollow, hence-th? .name pitcher.

? Crying Steno.
In the yard of Jacob Abbott's
country- home, a favorite play
ground for his grandchildren and
their friends, stood a large square
stone bearing this notice: "if any
child gets cross and sulky and
cries, he can go and sit on tho 'cry
ing stone' just as long as he wants
4<? and cry it out/? ?So whenever a
boy or a* girl did sulk, Dr. Lyman
Abbott records, all the rest of* the
children would clamor: "To tho cry
ing stone I To the crying stone 1"
And seldom did a child ta ko advan
tage of that place provided. There
are grown people who voluntarily
put themselves in^ such doleful prom
inence th-' ono longs to try the
effect cf a public crying steno on
them. Stationed in a conspicuous
place and ordered to "cry. it out,"
they might be shamed into reform
