Rosalie's irritation reached its elinjaa j

By this time Rosalie had roached tba
limit of endurance. She sprang up

bad boxed Tail's ears soundly raid ned
to her room. No one made comment
on the scene save that Mr. Carleton
amusedly met the laughter In Anne's
eyes and told Ted that he would have
no more of bis teasing. Rosalie's ca
pricious treatment of John had long
been disapproved cf by ber fa in ii j-,
and, while they ware a!! sorry for ?r.?r.

to her senses.

to send her Cowers, to give her every

Sister wished,. Anne heard tho bell and
ol inn ed down to answer lt. She came
back saying lt was some one for her

a man in the tea trade to a repre

'Up tho river from Hongkong
there s a little settlement of Eng
lishmen. Just across tho river is
' & graveyard inhabited by a few
sci'ub birds of tho snipe family.
' Tu?y aro very poor shooting, but
i rcuv i'riton must have sport of
j ?orne kine!, and shooting those birds
ls tho only sport in sight.
"Ono day an Englishman let drive
at a snipe ono hit a Chinaman, who
had just bobbed out from behind a
tombstone. The charge of shot
struck the coolie in his wrist, put
ting bis hand out o*' business.
''*0f course the Chinaronn made a
roar. Tho Briton, wanting to do
tho square thing, offered to pay
the damage. The cf?oly demanded
$10. The Englishman generously
made it $16.
"There waa nevei . any good hunt
ing in the gravey??d after that.
Whenever an Enclin-mau was seen
approaching, a Chinaman hid be
hind every gravestone.
**With marvelous cleverness they'd
manage to get in range just when
the Briton fired. If ono of them
had the luck to get two or three
birdshot in his system he would
come out, roar and collect.
"Of course this drove away the
snipe, but the coolies took to catch
ing birds, tying them by the leg to
gravestones and hiding themselves
in holes, from which they could rise
and get shot at the proper moment.
The Englishmen had to stop hunt
ing. It was too expensive. .

Extremity of ? Labrador "King" When
th? Bishop Carno.
Every Bummer when the coast of
Labrador is fairly free and vessels
can approach that foggy and for
bidding country the bishop of New
foundland makes a trip as for north
as tho ice permits. Ile finds much
to do in giving comfort and coun
sel, christening tho infants that
have been born during tho winter,
preaching funeral sermons and unit
ing tho betrothed, who await him at
tho fishing stations.
Landing at tho Seal islands once,
ho found an assemblage clad in its
level best at the houso of the
"king," or leading factor, for tho
king, having buried four wives, had
resolved to toko a fifth, and ho had
gathered tho neighbors'to witness
his joy in the acquisition.
There aro not many neighbors in
Labrador,' but there were enough in
this instance to fill both rooms of
his houso. When tho bishop had
bien warmed and welcomed and was
prepared to speak the words that
would fill the Seal islands VT*. S re
joicing he discovered tb??t ?he . .?ion
woe impossible because the L 'de
and bridegroom were too nearl; re
; "Tho church forbids thia match/'
he declared, and great was tho sen
sation. The bride sank down in
tears of mortification and temper,
and tho bridegroom scratched his
head in bewilderment. Something
had to be done, and quickly, for it
might bo a year before a clergyman
appeared on that coast again.
"Oh, well, there's plenty of oth
ers/' said the king, brightening as
he surveyed his guests. He turned
to a woman in tho company and
asked;"Will you have me, Lizzie?"
"Not for a gift 1" exclaimed the
- w iii you have me, J ano ?"
"Not if you were tho last mon on

Tho king looked ruefully over the

too willing, before the bishop, and

A fact that thin persons who wish

is that much more food may be eat

doubt many haye noticed the relief
experienced when, replete with food,
they have sipped water. Frequently
I have seen children writhing with
the pain of colic instantly relieved

O r?g! n of the Wo ri' "Calico."
The word "calico" hos a peculiar
origin. Many centuries since the
first monarch of the province of
Malabar, Hindustan, gave to one of
his .chiefs, as a reward for services,
the land within the limits of which
a cock crowing at a certain, temple
could be heard. From this circum
stance the little town whioh sprang
np in \ the; center of this territory
Waa caUed- "Calicado" or "The
Crowing Cock.".. Afterward it was
called Calicut, and from this place
the first, cotton goods wore imported
into England under \ the riama of
