EXPLANATION TO CJOMEZ.
President Taft (Jives Assurance In
tervention is Not Intended.
Feeling assured that President
Gomez has misunderstood the pur
pose of the American government in
despatching the large naval force
now on its way to Key West, the
state department, after having in
structed American Minister Beaupre
at Havana to make plain to the Cu
ban government the purpose of the
movement, has now left to the dis
cretion of Colonel Karmauy, com
manding the marine forces of the
cruiser Prairie, the extent to which
the marines shall be employed.
It is believed that as soon as
Gomez is aware of the fact that no
sinister purpose is behind the Amer
ican action, he will no longer object.
It is thoroughly appreciated here
that the Cuban president must as
sume a rather resentful attitude to
ward what might appear an invasion
of the island, lest the patriotism of
the Cubans be stirred to resistance.
Should he persist In his objection,
however, the American naval com
manders will not remain indifferent
to the demand of Americans for pro
tection where it is clear the Cuban
government cannot give it.

MOVING THE PIANO.
Changing Its Position In a Room Will
Affect Its Tone.
It is said that the very act of mov
ing :i piano around in a room is sulii
cicnt to disturb its tonal qualities.
When a piano has been moved into
the position for which it is intended,
is accustomed to the temperature and
the drafts prevalent, it should be tuned,
experts say. Any change of tempera
ture or movement may cause the
strings to contract or expand slightly
with the resultant loss or guin of half
a semitone. Changing the position of a
piano Is said to have almost the same
effect ns constant playing, only in the
latter case the constant action of the
hammers against the strings tends to
loosen their adjustment and the Instru
ment runs out of tune.
ea air has also a detrimental effect
on pianos. Here again contraction
and expansion of the wires are the
chief causes of disturbance. Pianos
I constructed for the tropics are much
more strongly built than those used in
temperate climates. Wood that is not
liable to warp tuul crack is used in the
sounding lmards; otherwise they have
i to be brass bound and stayed to pre
vent splitting. New York Sun.
Gluttons of the Seas.
The pike's reputation for cruelty And
voraciousness is such that it has been
popularly dubbed the "inner wolf."
It is probable, however, that many
species of sea fish are eipialiy, if uot
a great deal more, r.ipii' iui. Large
dogfish, congers, pollack, cod and buss
are especially ferocii.i;s, while halibut
will very often .-eize and kill other
large fish. An English angler was
"playing" a large conger when a huge
halibut swam up to and savagely bit
at it u proceeding that cost the halibut
its own life, for ou its making for Hie
wounded conger a second time the
boatman contrived to gaff and haul it
aboard. There have been many ex
amples of pike being found dead, chok
ed by their own species, and these tish
not infrequently atttack another pike
that has been hooked by a fisherman.
The average Englishman has a hor
ror of arsenic, but the peasantry in
Austria-Hungary and other parts of
eastern Europe eat it habitually, be
lieving that it gives plumpness and
beauty to the figure and longness of
breath. Peddlers sell while arsenic
about the countryside quite without re
striction. The quantities taken are
small, and so long as the doses are reg
ular no illness results. Once they are
stopped, however, symptoms of nrse
nical poisoning nt once become mani
fest. Mountaineers in eastern Europe
often take a dose of arsenic before
commencing a climb, and it is nlso
customary to give it to horses and dogs
to give brightness and gloss to their
skins. London Chronicle.
The frequency of meteors is at Its

ENGLAND'S BIG BOAT RACE.
Origin of the Annual Match Between
Oxford and Cambridge.
In the year two university
eights met in a rowing match from
Hambledon lock to Henley bridge.
One crew wore dark striped jerseys
and black hats, and the other ap
peared in white shirts, wearing a pluk
necktie. The race was rowed in slow,
heavy boats, built with high sides, and
uquare oars propelled the crews along.
No enthusiastic crowds lined the
banks of the river nil along the course,
and no evening papers, giving the re
sult of the race, sold In hundreds of
thousands nil over the country when
the race was over. Yet this was the
beginning of the most popular racing
event in the rowing world-the Oxford
and Cambridge boat race.
The boats used by the eights in those
days were clumsy and uncomfortable.
Sliding scats were unknown, and the
craft were weighed down wilh heavy
metal keels. Outriggers-the extended
parls of a boat's gunwale, that give a
greater leverage were also unheard
of. for It was not until ls-lii that they
were introduced by the university
crews. In 1.S57 keel.ess boats were
adopted, and sliding seats were used
In them in lST"..
Oxford did not adopt the dark blue
that Is so well known today until lSSt.
when Cambridge appeared In Eton col

They Must Be Pointed the Right Way
to Bring Good Luck.
One of the lucky charms most gen
erally worn recently was the swas
tika. Superstitious wearers would do
well to examine their reproductions of
It and make sure that they are cor
rect in form and material, for Sir
George Birdwood, an aulhor'ty on In
dian matters, has been giving some in
teresting and alarming facts concern
ing this nucient and mystic symbol.
The right handed swastika that Is,
the one whose transom or arm points
to the right is the symbol of the sun
and of light, of health and happiness
nnd other good qualities, and it alone
is lucky. It should be fashioned only
of gold and colored (if enameled on
any other metal) only red, the color of
the east, or yellow, the color of the
The left handed swastika is the sym
bol of the moon and of moonlight, of
all darkness and supernatural terrors,
of all mortal diseases and disgraces
and other forms of ill omen.
It should be formed only of silver
or colored blue, green, while or black
if it Is . xpected to perform Its work
in a thoroughly businesslike unlucky
way. London Cor. New York Sun.
His Incurable Disease.
The late John Hay had been ailing
one time, and a friend made bold to
nsk what the trouble was. "I am suf
fering from an Incurable disease." Mr.
Hay n plied with due gravity. Deli
cacy prevented the friend from mak
ing further inquiry, but he told the
story to acquaintances, and the report
soon spread through Washington that
a deadly disease held the secretary of
state within its grasp. At last an in
timate acquaintance determined to as
certain the nature of the secretary's
ailment, and, meeting the latter one
day, he said: "I have been told that
you are suffering from an incurable
disease. Is it true?" "It is." said Mr.
Hay in n sad tone. "What Is. the in
curable disease?" asked the insistent
acquaintance. "Old age." said Mr.
Ilay, with a chuckle.
The Word "Strike."
The earliest use of the word "strike"
in the sense of stopping work occurs
In the London Chronicle for Septem
ber, 1703, in connection with a coal
strike. This publication reports a
great suspension of lalwir In the North
umberland coal fields, and the colliers
are stated to have "struck out" for a
higher bounty before entering Into
their usual yearly "bond." The time
honored Illustration of profitless labor,
"carrying coals to Newcastle," appears
to have received Its first slap in the
face during this strike. The Chronicle
reports that "several pokes of coal
were brought from Durham to New
castle hy otie of the common carriers
and sold on the sand hill for nlnepenee
a poke, by which ho cleared sixpence
a poke." London Chronicle.
We are oft deceived In love, nnd
oftener wounded, anil oftenest unhap
py; but. after all, we love, and when
we stated on the threshold of the tomb
and turn nbout lo look back upon the
ground we have traversed it will be
well If we can sny. "I have suffered
often, 1 have been deceived many
times, but I have loved. It is I who
have lived, therefore, nnd not a dream
being created out of my pride and my
weariness." George Sand.
Little Drops of Water.
"Did they make you recite 'Little
Drops of Water' when you were a
"Yes," replied Colonel Stillwell. "And
it didn't stop there. When I grew up
they tried to insist on my adopting
them as a beverage." Washington
