B BITTEN ItV A SHARK.
H Naval surgeons have Rome curious
H cases to deal with on hoard Undo
H flam's warships. Assistant Surgeon F.
H 'M. Munsou has made n report to the
H ;Nnvy Department which ought to sot-
H tie the long-disputed controversy as to
H tho man-eating propensities of sharks.
H "On November 2, 1004," inys he, "a
H boatswain's mate of tho Plsentnqua,
H then lying In the Inner harbor of Olon-
H gapo, P. I while bathing from the sJde
H of the ship, was bitten on the foot by
H a shank. The man liad a j;ood view of
H the shark and there can be no doubt
H as to the Identity of the species of

H dorsal and one on Uio plantar surface
H pear the toes, showed unmistakably
H the marks of three rows of teeth In

H the skin was torn from the underlying
H itlssues for two Inches; two tendons

H j', KNEW niS OWN WORTH.
H j, In one of the early editions of Mur-
B ' ray's Guide to Switzerland It was
H stated that scarcely anybody had as-
H cended the mountains, and those who
B ' hn(i wero chiefly of unsound mind.
H Idens bave altered slnco then, and the
B climber nowadays has to be a lien I thy-
B I minded mortal of at least ordinary In-
H (f tclllgencc; although a writer In Outing
B ' 0;clares that the secret Is successful
H I ., and skilful use of the feet.
H i T"o tyro nt mountain-climbing pro-
H ) claims himself at once by his inability
r ' mnkc progress where handholds are
H scarce. The hands should, as a rule,
H be ucd only as anchors, and tho up-
4i Ward progress made by simply step-

K available. It Is a very common occur-
B ' rellC0 I" the Alps to meet n party that
H V includes nu Incapable amateur who has
Bj J lost Iowcr in his arm, nnd has
f ft actually to bo pushed, dangled and nl-
B- fi n,ost carried down the rocks because
1 1,ls nrus Imvo given out through lack
i of knowledge in using them,
j J ' LnJt year on Mont Blanc I witnessed
l ' n curious accident which iTlusfrntes the
K l! consequences or carelessness. We were
H' ' following downward behind a party
' composed of two guides and a stout
B German climber who objected to hav-
B lug the rope tied about his waist.
j At o Point we wero dismayed to
Hl seo tho amateur vanish through the
apparently lovel surface of the snow,
H ' leaving tho empty loop of the rope
H ( dangling down the hole.
B ' We rushed to tho edge of the crov-
H nsso nml Blanco down into Its bluck.
H fey depths showed the serious nature of
r ,tLo accident. Tho crevosso was fully
m 200 feet deep, and our ropes were of no
Kn s for a rescue; besides, as no answer
1 ' cnmo o our calls, we decided that tho
B uufortunato climber had paid the pen-
M nlty of his foolishness.
B ,,S?mo of Ui ran dowB to tho Grands-
H JIuIots aud brought m p number of
H guides carrying a long, strong lope and
H I tno wherewithal to carry tho body
H down to tho valley.
H Wo lowered tho guide into tho depths
H pf the glacier, and Judge ot our surprise
B .when we heard voices far below. Our
"ii .wonder was sUIl further Increased
M vvhen the guide came up and said that
' h0 stout German was sitting at tho
H bottom of tho crevasse, smoking n
B Plpo. Luckily, ho had fallen on a bed
H of soft snow, mid his only serious dam-
H ago was a broken leg.
B I Ho absolutely refused to be pulled up
H until a bargaiu had been struck as to
HJ i ihti cost of tho rescue.
H SAVED ItV A IIAHY.
H In 1805 tno dltllculties between the
H i Chinese aud Japaueso mado the lot
H of missionaries in China extremely dan-
H gerous. They recognized tho serious
n consequences of a general uprising of
M tho Chinese. In "Tho Trugedy of I'ao-
B tlngfu" there is a letter from an Amor-
---I .lean woman telling how u partv of
aaV Ohlucso soldiers wero checked when
they came rtlshlng toward her house:
A week ago u groat crowd of Chinese
.soldiers cm mo to the compound, about
H fifteen rods from her. They caused
H (great disturbance among the Chinese
H servants and others. The racket ubout
B -tho place was something terrible.
KJftJH Mr. Roberts did what ho could to
H. keep them quiet. Dr. Noblo soon cainc,
V' .and they two worked all tho afternoon,
V trying to entertain theso men by un-
twerlng their questions and showing
B them round. They broko into the rel-
1 lars, but did not break into tho houses,
H although they pushed on tho doors and
H wanted to get in badly; but tho gentle-
HB men told them thcro was only u woman
inside, and it was not proper for them T
to go in. To this they finally agreed,
for tho Chinese aro very particular
nbou such things.
I soon saw them coming toward the
house lw a lot of hounds on the track
of somaj.rey. They came to the win
dows and Ufgan looking In, but did not
try the doors.
I saw some faces at ono window
which did not look very bod, so I sat
down at the window with llaby Paul.
He Immediately reached out his little
arms to them, and laughed, delighted
to see so many faces. They began to
smile and ask questions. I asked them
where they welo from and the nil
swered me. They thought Paul would
bo cold, dressed In white. So I showed
them that he had limine! on under, et
cetera, and they seemed satisfied.
They Anally left. You can Imagine
CONQUERING A GRIZZLY.
Nearly nil old Cnllfornlnns, says tho
author of "Early Days In California,"
have heard of "Mountain Charley,"
who lived In tho Santa Crux moun
tains, where he hunted bear and deer.
Of his adveuturco, many of which
were rcuinrkable, there Is none stran
ger than his light with a grizzly.
Ono morning he started out with his
gun. He had gone but a short dis
tance wncn ne round nimseir race to
face with a grizzly. Tho bear was sit
ting on Ills haunches reaching for
acorns when Charley came upon him.
The hunter tried to bring his rifle up,
but being nt such close quarters, the
bear disarmed htm by striking the
weapon with its paw and knocking
tho weapon out of his hands. At the
samo tlmo he embraced Charley.
Hoth fell to the ground. Helng on a
hillside, they rolled over and over un
til they reached the ravine below, when
the bear loosened its hold, yet did not
seem inclined to glvo up the tight.
Charley realized that his only
chance was to "wind" the bear by
striking him with his tlst over the
heart. He landed the blow as near
tho region as possible. He struck llrst
with ono fist and then with the other
In rapid succession when ho found the
By this tlmo they were close to the
embankment of tho creek. The bear
had lost no time In getting In his
iicratches and bites. It had mado one
wound over the hunter's forehead and
down tho cheek to the bone, and had
torn one of his eyes from the socket.
It had also fastened Its teeth In the
man's left arm, and made an ugly
With a desperate lunge Charley
shoved the bear over the embankment
into the water. Then, too weak to
stand, ho fell exhausted upon tho
ground. Tho bear wos apparently in
the samo condition. It waded to the
opposite bank and lay down.
At last the bear rose to Its feet and
walked up the streom, frequently stop
ping and looking back, as if hesitating
whether or not to renow the light.
Going nt a slow pace, it Anally disap
peared. When Mountain Charley thought he
could move with safety, he crawlod to
the stream and drank n little water,
then washed tho blood from his face,
pushed the eye back into the socket,
and crawled to his home. Ho was
taken to Son Jose for medical treat
ment. Tho bones of ono nrm were
brokejp. Several, months passed be
fore hb rlcovcfed. His eye was riot
destroyed, but his face was so dis
figured that his friends hardly know
him. Not discouraged by this terrible
experience, however, he continued to
hunt uutll gamo became scarce.
SLEEPING WITH SNAKES.
My presont boa always sleeps in my
bed round my feet. He Is perfectly
clean, lies still and very seldom dis
turbs mo; occasionally ho crawls to my
face to lick it. I frequently tako a
python to bed, but nt present she is
timid, and If she cannot nnd my feet
crawls out of the bed aud curls herself
on the floor.
I do not myself believe that any py
thon or boa is savage, but they are
dreadfully timid, especially from the
ill-treatment they receive when first
caught and the misery and terror they
enduro on tho voyage. Thero is an
other thing. They have no eyollds, nnd
bolug suddenly uucovcred and dragged
forth to tho light buffer from tho glare
very acutely. It Is best, thereforo, to
hide their heads in your hand or under
your coat. Handlo them often and
give them water, pressing their heads
gently Into it.
I feed my boaB frequently from my
hand, but tho last tlmo I offered a
python a guinea pig tho prey escaped
and the python took in tho wholo of
my hand Instead. Ho soon discovered
his mistake and was greatly distressed,
rubbed his head against my hand and
seemed to fear soino sort of punish
ment. Slnco that time I have bad great
dlfllculty in persuading him to eat un
less I nurso him or tako him to bed,
when ho will Ho tho whole night with
his head in my hand. From n letter
by Dr. Mann, in "My Strange Pots,"

Mlrrori In I'botoKrsphjr,
In this ago of publicity, when many
society women aro glad to furnish, pho
tographs for use in print, it Is little
wonder they nro anxious to look their
prettiest when being "taken." Ono of
tho latest European fads is to pose
with a hand glars. French -women
say "that fascinating expression" is
obtained only by such a mothod, and
tho Idea 1- being received well by pho
tographers throughout Europe, So mo
dules tho mirror Is hold for fifteen or
twenty minutes before the woman is
satisfied that others will see her as she
sees herself, When tho right expres
sion does come she drops the mirror,
and the photographer does the rest.
BLISTERING IN LINEN.
To prevent blistering in linen, which
Is almost always duo to bad starching,
but occasionally to Ironing the articles
when too wet, each article must be
well starched through, and when about
to Iron It, It must bo dampened evenly,
but not wet. Collars and cuffs that
hove to bo turned down should be fixed
In the proper shape Immediately after
each ono Is Ironed, for then the starch
Is still flexible.
SELECTING AND COOKING FISH.
Fish Bhould enter Into tho diet of
both healthy people and Invalids. Its
chief disadvantage for folks In good
health Is that It is not satisfying. This
is largely owing to the great amount
of water that it contains.
It Is nn agreeable change from meat.
Any white fish Is easily digested. To
be really good and wholesome fish
should not only bo strictly fresh, but
In season. It should no more be eaten
out of season than game, says tho Bos.
Care should bo taken nlso that the
fish is mature, so that tho flavor of tho
meat may be at its best. After spawn
lug it makes a very poor diet. Tho
flesh is then soft and of a bluish color
and after it Is cooked It has not the
llaklnoss that characterizes good fish.
Fish must be porfectly fresh, otherwise
serious results may follow after eat
ing it. It deteriorates more quickly
than most food and consequently the
first essential is freshness. If it Is at
all "woolly" Its flavor Is gone nnd tie
meat is insipid.
nerc Is n process which may seem
somewhat long and tedious, but you
will hnvc tho consolation to know that
you hnvc done a good Job, for this
mctliod was once awarded a prize by
tho Society ot Arts.
Prepare sufficient lime water for the
quantity of feathers you have to clean,
In tho following manner: Mis thor
oughly ono pound of quick llino In
each gallon of water required and let
It stand until all the undissolved lime
Is precipitated as n fine powder to the
bottom of tho tub or pne, whereupon
pour off the clear liquor for use.
Now, having put tho feathers In a
clean tub, pour the lime water on them
and stir them well In It until they all
sink to tho bottom, by which time
thcro should be enough lime water
to cover them to n depth of three
Inches. Let them stand in this thrco
or four days, then tako them out, drain
them In a sieve, nnd afterwards wash
and rinse them well In clean water.
Dry them on nets having about tho
same mesh as a cabbago not; shake
tho not occasionally nnd thoso feathers
that are dry will fall through. When
they aro all dry, beat them well to got
rid of tho dust.
Orange Punch Boll ono pound of
sugar and one pint of water with tho
grated yellow rind of one orange for
fivo minutes. Take from tho flro and

OBSERVE HOME ANNIVERSARIES
The happiest households are that that
do not let die out tho sentiment con
nected with various anniversaries. Al
though gift-giving or recognition of
such events In a sultablo way may be
out of the question owing to the strait
ened clrcumstancesof those"wlthln the
gates," there con yet bo a little nlr of
festivity when mother's or father's
birthday comet round, or some wed
ding nnnlversoy is to be celebrated.
An extra dish, a llttlo bunch of flowers,
or some spcclnl music prepared for tlie
occasion, will show the kindly spirit
nnd the loving remembrance that count
for more than the money value of any
gift. As the children grow up, It these
festivals nro encouraged, they will
have much to look forward to and
much more to remember in the years
to como when they go out to do battle
with the world and find that sentiment
is crushed under foot nnd nffcctlon Is
regarded only ns a side Issue.
CHILDREN'S PARTY SUPPERS.
The most charming thing nbout any
meal Is a surprise connected with it,
and In this supper thero nre soveral,
of n simple character, easily prepared
and Intended for the smallest chlldicn:
Clam broth in cups with whipped
Creamed chlckou; rolled sandwiches.
Small cups of cocoa.
Paper roses with plain ice cream con
cealed In them; little cakci.
Put tho chicken into small square
boxes and covers and gluo a tiny
downy chicken on tho cover of each.
Sorve tho sandwiches tied with rib
bons, nnd tho cocoa In llttlo after-din-nor
coffoo-cups with llttlo spoons. Get
some large paper rosss aud remove
tho centres, fitting a llttlo paper cup In
each, and laying tho fiat centre on
again when it is served; pass the plates
with the llttlo lighted cakes with this.
SAVE TISSUE PAPER.
Tho tlssuo paper In which parcels
ore wrapped should nevor bo thrown
away, but smoothed out and laid away
in a drnwpr for futuro use.
A small pad of tlssuo paper sprinkled
with methylated spirit will give a bril
liant polish to mirrors, picture glasses
and crystal. Tho pad, used without
the spirit, is excellent for burnishing
steel, rubbing grease spots off furni
ture, polishing tllvor, etc.
For packing glass, china nnd orna
ments n roll of tlssuo paper Is Invalua
ble, says Homo Notes.
When packing hats a wisp of tissue
paper should bo twisted around nit up
standing ends ot ribbon, otmroys nnd
wings to prevent crushing. Dress nnd
blouso sleeves should be stuffed with
soft paper, and a sheet of it placed be
tween tho folds.
Silk handkerchiefs, ribbons and laco
should all bo Ironed between a layer
of tlssuo paper, aud the latter Is a fine
polisher for steel buckles and hatpins.

A WOMAN PATENT ATTORNEY.
The experience of Miss Florence
King, of Chlcngo, potent attorney,
shows that the "self-mode wouinn'
has arrived nlong with the "self-nindd
mnn," of whom America has long been
proud. She handles the most Intrlcato
Inventions and complicated cases, and
practices In the Supreme Court of thet
United States. She becamo famous
when sho won the case of Mrs. Hamil
ton Rogers ngalust n great corporation,
a cos"e which men attorneys had repeat- ,
edly refused to touch as hopeless.
Sho was born In n log cabin, left an
orphan at five, went to district school,
earned her first money in the kitchen
at $1.25 a week, worked her own way1
through college, started business life as
a stenographer, studied law, special
ized In patent law, and after various
other successes was admitted to the
Supremo Court in 1003. She took a 4
course In mechanical and electrical en- '
gluccrlng at Armour Institute, and can!
pass, It Is said, expert opinion ou me
chanical inventions before presenting
them at tho Potent Office.
STYLES IN NECKWEAR.
Scarfs of laco and printed chiffon
for evening wear are so closely allied
to neckwear that they must be men
tioned with It and the newest come In
frilled nnd pleated effects that are ex
tremely pretty. Crepe do Chine Is em
ployed for tho making of some dainty
stocks and ties, both In white nnd col
ors, and medallions and frills of laco
lend n touch of ornamentation. In
pnstel colorings these collars are dainty
and charming. In tailored neckwear
a fancy is observable for long tab onds,
and whether of wash material or of
silk this elongated effect Is evidenced.
Taffeta embroidered In colors and lit'
black and whlto designs Is n favored!
material for these fancy tailored'
stocks, and then there are the handker-1
chief tics In bright tints and Oriental
colorings which arc exceedingly smnrt
for nutumn or winter wear with 0 plain
shirt waist, whether of linen or heavier
fabric. The trim llttlo turnover collar
with embroidered edge and worn wltli p
a narrow silk or satin tie Is as much -
in style as ever. Thcro Is a neat nlr
about this collar Unit Is very fetching.
Of course, the linen collar for wear!
with strictly tailored waists is never:
entirely out of fashion, nnd it Is not
likely to bo while the vogue for tin)
shirt waist continues. In referring td
ncckwoar, the scrim collar and curd
