Cooling Water In Nicaragua.
'They have," said a railroad man, "a
primitive method of cooling water in
Mexiceo and Central America. The
principal Is perfectly simple, but there
is a certain knack about the thing that
I have never known a white man to
"When a native in one of the broiling
hot little villages of interior Nicaragua
wants to cool some water, she fills a
half gallon earthenware jar about two
thirds iul!. Parenthetically I say 'she,
because this is a task that requires
more unergy than any male Nicara
guan was ever known to possess. The
jar is made of baked lay, and, not be
ing glazed, is partially porous and soon
beconmes moist on the outside. Two
leather straps are firmly attached to
the nick, and, seizing these in her
hands, she begins to rotate the jar
swiftly In the air. The mouth is wide
open, but centrifugal action keeps the
liquid from flying out.
"The average native woman is frail
and listless In appearance, but the en
durance which they exhibit at this sort
of calisthenics Is marvelous. It is
about the same as swinging Indian
clubs, and I am afraid to say how long
I have seen them keep it up, lest you
might set me down as a prize liar.
Generally the lord and master lies In
one corner of - their 'jacal,' or hut,
smoking a cigarette and watching the
operation languidly. When the wom
an thinks the water Is sufficiently cool,
she stops with a dexterous twist of the
wrist and hands him the jar.
"Usually he takes a gulp, growls out,
'Moocha calora!' which Is native pa
tois for 'blamed hot,' and she begins
again, patiently describing pinwheels.
I have never made a test with a ther
mometer, but I assure you they can re
duce tepid water to the temperature of
a very cool mountain spring."-New
An Ocean Hotel.
Some Idea of what a big hotel a
transatlantic liner is may be gained
from the following from Ainslie's Mag
azine: "Everything about the kitchen
of a great steamship is on a most elab
orate scale. The range weighs many
tons; the various soup caldrons are
constructed to hold 20 gallons; loaves
are baked by the hundred, joints roast
ed by the dozen.. each in a separate and
specially constrncted compartment. To
serve the meals thousands of plates,
pieces of silver, cups and saucers and
napkins are required, and the average
breakage in the galley of a big ship
amounts to a barrel of china every day.
"The amount of stores required for a
single voyage by a great liner is com
parable only to the commissariat of an
army. Here are a few figures furnish
ed by the chief steward of one of the
big Gorman ships from the order sheet
for a recent trip: Sixteen tons of fresh
beef, five tons of lamb and veal, 3,500
head of chickens, ducks, geese and
game, four tons of salted meats, 1,000
dozens eggs, three tons of sugar, 100
barrels of flour, 700 bushels of pota
toes, 2% tons of butter, 2,000 quarts of
milk and 500 gallons of ice cream. Of
course this is not an exhaustive list,
but it will serve to give an idea of the
enormous appetite which the store
rooms of the ocean liner must satisfy."
God has given us a capacity to enjoy
food. That is not the principal object
in eating. One goes to a dinner and
after eating all that- he really desires
and more than is beneficial thinks he
will add a little of the compounds they
call dessert-the invention of the dev
1-and becomes uncomfortable and
wretched. Most of the desserts we
have might be called "fricasseed night
mare" or "escaloped indigestion." Eat
ing becomes idolatry if it becomes un
fitting for higher servIce. It Is a crime
to gorge and be uncomfortable or to
induce a headache. I once attended a
dinner at the invitation of a parish
ioner and was asked to accompany a
lady to the table. I did not need to
eat, but I offered to help her to what
ever she desired, and she asked for
chicken salad, remarkIng, "It always
gives me a wretched headache, but I
am going to have some," and I replied,
"Then you may help yourself, for I
will not."-Address by Dr. Pierson.
No Pri'vate Interview. -
"Could I have a few minutes' private
conversation with you?" he asked as
he stood at the open door of a lawyer's
office in the Loan and Trust building
the other afternoon.
"Can't you speak right out from
where you arey' asked the lawyer in
reply after looking the man over.
"I'd rather make a private matter
"What is the nature of your busi
"Confidential--strictly private and
"Well, I have no time to grant you a
private interview. If you have any
thing to say, you can let her go right
here. Now, what is it?"
"I-I wanted the loan of a quarter,
sir," stammered the man.
"Oh, you did: And you wanted a
private interviewv to ask me that?"
"Yes, sir. I knew that it would hurt
both our feelings if I were refused in
public-yours because you couldn't af
ford to loan me the money and mine
because I couldn't get It. Can you
grant my request, sir?"
"And does it hurt your feelings?"
"Not a bit. You are mistaken on that
"And my feelings are the only ones
"Just so," said the man as he bowed
and backed out. "I beg your pardon.
I was mistaken. You have the money
and no feelings, and I have the feelings
and no money. Impassible chasm; no
use in trying to bridge. Good day!"
The Poodle and the Lion.
"I notice that Automobile Mont
gomery says that horses often make a
die for the corn he paints," remarked
one art league student to another.
"Well, there might be some truth in
It," said the second. "I saw a little in
cident at the art Institute the other day
that made mue think of Mr. Montgom
ery's proud boast. You know those big
lions on the sides of the steps, the
work of Kemeys, are pretty lifelike.
I was standing looking at them when a
little white poodle came down the steps
in the wake of a woman with stylish
clothes on. The poodle had a gold col
lar around his neck and was alto
gether one of the tiniest, dandified
specimens of a dog that you could find.
He walked up to one of the lions, set
tled back on his hind legs, and looked
at the big stone beast. Then he sniffed
and glanced around inquiringly. All
at once he made up his mind. He
made a fierce rush for the lion, barking
as viciously and as loud as a dog six
inches long could bark. He positively
swelled up and appeared about to ex
plode with wrath.
"There you are. If Kenneys' lions so
excited a poodle dog, It may be that
horses wvill eat Montgomery's corn pic~
ture."-Cicao Iner Oean
"Am I going to the wedding? Cer
tainly not," suapped the pretty girl In
blue. "I'd like to see mnyself there!
You thought we were friends? Oh,
yes, we're friends. I'd like to scratch
her eyes out, the deceitful thing' How
did it start? How did what start?
If her young man wished to call on
me, there was no law against it, was
there? If he got in the habit of call
ing here every day in the week and
twice on Sundays, It wasn't my busi
ness to turn him over to the police,
was it? I wish I had, though, as he
was an awful bore and so persistent
that I never got a chance to go any
where or see any one.

Into my camp. If I had not thought
that that young man's presence here

Sparing of Her Remedy.
There is at least one woman in Ken
wood who believes thoroughly in the
efficiency of prayer. About a year ago
her husband engaged in a business
venture that looked rather uncertain.
But his wife had strong faith that it
would turn out well.
"Go ahead, John," she said, "and let
us put our trust in the Lord. I pray
every night that we may have no rea
son to regret the risk we are taking."
The affair seemed to turn out pretty
well right from the start. Handsome
dividends were paid all through the
summer and during the winter, and
great joy was in the home of this man
and the sharer of his fortunes.
But there came a turn about a month
ago. The business ceased to pay, and
since then the losses have been increas
ing every day. Nothing was said about
it at the fireside around which so much
happiness had centered during the last
year until the other day, when It was
suggested by the worried husband that
It would be well to cut down expenses.
Questions followed, as a matter of
course, and then It had to be confessed
that the business was not going well.
"Dear me!" exclaimed the distressed
woman when all the truth had been re
vealed to her. "I must begin praying
again tonight!" - Chicago Times-Her
A Famous London Tavern.
The Mermaid was the name of a fa
mos London tavern frequented by
noted literary men and actors during
the reign of Queen Elizabeth. All the
wit and talent of the time assembled
there for convivial enjoyment Au
thors have made it the scene of great
mind combats between such men as
Shakespeare, Ben Jonson, Beaumont,
Fletcher, Selden, Carew, Donne and
others of reverential memory. It was
the gathering place of the celebrated
Mermaid club, the origin of which is
ascribed to Sir Walter Raleigh. The
Mermaid tavern was located in Bread
street and was handily reached from
three thoroughfares, so that it has been
often referred to in various ways. The
Mermaid in Bread street, the Mermaid
In Friday street and the Mermaid In
Cheap street were, however, all one
and the same. It was the nearest to
Bread street. The Mermaid was de
stroyed in the great London fire. There
were other Mermaid taverns, one In
Cheapside and another in Cornhill, but
they had no such associations as clung
to that of Bread street.
.When Poor Writing Is Beat.
A popular author whose handwriting
was none of the best used to maintain
that it was a matter of princIple with
him not to write too well. He declared
that for the use of printers, good hand
writing was only a snare and a delu
sion, tending to encourage carelessness
and mistakes on their part. The com
positors, he asserted, were compelled
to devote their very best care and at
tention to bad handwriting, with the
result that, when it was deciphered, it
was so fixed in their minds that it was
impossible for them to set it up in
correctly. He therefore declared that
the worst handwriting was the best
for the printers.-Truth.

The Rush of a shell.
As a shell rushes through the air at
the rate of 1,000 miles ani hour it gets
heavily charged with electricity by
friction, says London Answers. It parts
with It to any good conductor it meets
on the way, doing terrible execution.
Passing in front of a British soldier, a
big shell gave him such a shock that
he instantly fell dead.
In one of our wars two officers, stand
ing side-by side, saw a shell coming.
They stood apart, and it passed be'
tween them without touching either.
But one officer lost the sight of both
eyes, and the other instantly became
blind in one and soon lost the other
In another battle a soldier had just
stooped to help a fallen comrade when
a shell passed over his back. Hie fell
forward quite disabled, and for mronths
after he could not stand erect.
A curious accident of a similar kind
happened to an American officer in the
Cuban war. He was galloping across
the field when a shell whirled past in
front of hirt. His horse rolled over,
and he himself became unconscious.
On recovery he found that neither self
nor steed had been wounded, and he
knew that they had simply sustained
a severe electric shock.
A sailor who met with a serious acci
dent was carried to the London hospi
tal. The poor mother hurried to the
building to see her son. She was met
by a kind but firm refusal from the
house physician, but nothing daunted
she pilde for admission to the poor
fellow's bedside. Who could resist a
mother's entreaties? The safety of the
patient lay in his being kept absolutely
quiet, but the physician consented to
her admission on condition that she did
not speak a word. She stole softly to
his bedside and gazed as only a mother
can at her unconscious boy. She dare
not speak, but a mother's love was not
to be denied all expression, and gently
laying her hand on his fevered brow
she let it rest there a moment and then
noiselessly crept from the room.
The watchful nurse heard the coma
tose sleeper murmur the words, "Her
touch," and, rousing himself, he added,
"Surely my mother has been here. I
know her touch!"
Ah, there was an electric thrill of
sympathy in that touch which told Its
own tale to the dying man'-Weekly
A Match Trick.
A feat which any one can perform
with little or no practice is that of
placing 14 matches upon a table and
lifting them all up upon one of the
matches. This is how it is done: Pick
out one match-the one that has the
flattest surface-and then place six of
the other matches about one-fourth
each across the first one, each of the
six being parallel to each other and the
thickness of a match distant from each
other. Next place six other matches
one-fourth each across the first match,
but from the other side, all parallel and
In the spaces left by the arrangement
of the first six matches. Now take thc
fourteenth match, lay It over the 12
matches wihere they intersect, and by
carefully lifting match No. 1 and hold'
ing match No. 14 in place you will ac
complish without difficulty the feat.
