Zeb White Tells How the Pesky
Varmints Sampled His Moonshine
) Juice and the Result, and Mrs. Zeb
Has a Word to Say About Brains.
[Copyright. 134)), by C. B. Lewis.]
"We'd bin makin moonshine whis
ky over in the big ravine fur about
three weeks," said the old possum
hunter of Tennessee, "when a thumpin
big War cum down out of the thicket
one day and acted in a mighty cur'us
way. It was in the summer, and he
was sheddin his fur, and, though I
had my rifle handy, I didn't keer to
shoot him. That b'ar smelt the whis
ky, and he sniffed and snuffed and
seemed to want a taste. I hollered at
him and driv him of two or three
times. lut h" kept comin back. My
ole woman had come over with my
supper. and arter watchin the b'ar fur
awhile she said:
-- 'Zeb, that b'ar wants a drink of
co'n juice *uah's yo'r bo'n, and I'm fur
glvin it to him.'
"I laughed at the idea, but as a
continued to hang around the place
the old woman poured about a pint of
the stuff into a pan and set it on a
stone 30) rods away. She had skassly
turned her back befo' the b'ar was
lappin it up, and he smacked his lips
over it jest like a man. In a leetle
while he walked off, and later on we
heard sich a row down around the
bend that we crept down to see what
It was. It was our b'ar and his mate.
That pint of whisky had made our
b'ar feel mighty jolly, and he was in
sistin that the other b'ar dance around
and roll over with him. One was drunk
and jolly and the other sober and mad,
and the way they carried on was as
good as a circus. Next day both b'ars
showed up fur whisky and went off as
jolly as you please, and half an hour
later I walked right up to them as
they slept and snored. I wasn't fur
givin away any mo' licker, but the
ole woman thinks it over and says:
"'Zeb, the fur of them b'ars won't be
wuth shucks fur three months, but
what's the matter with shettin the
varmints up in our outdoor cellar fur
the rest of the summer? I reckon we
kin manage to feed 'em, and each hide
will fetch $15 as soon as the fur is
"I decided that it was a good idea,
and we put out a hull quart of whisky
fur 'em, but fur some reason they had
left the nayburhood. The old woman
reckoned they'd got ashamed of them
selves and gone off to avoid temp
tashun, and I kinder figgered that they
was off spreadin the news and invitin
other b'ars to come along and sheer
a good thing. We'd about given up
seein 'em ag'in when they showed up.
I was all alone at the still that day,
but I had ropes at hand to tie 'em up in
case our plan worked, and I poured
two full quarts of whisky into the pan
and set It out in the old place. Them
b'ars had bin roamin around and keep
in sober fur so long that they was
dyin fur a spree, and they lapped up
every drop of that licker and licked
their chops fur mo'. They didn't git
jolly, as I looked fur. On the contrary,
they snarled and growled and wanted
to pick a fuss with each other. Mebbe
a b'ar is like a man about drinkin.
Let him git too much. aid he's ugly
instead of jolly. I waited awhile and
then follered 'em, hopin to find 'em
asleep, and that's how I corm to see a
sight to make my ha'r stand up.
"Down around the bend in the ra
vine was a grassy spot, and what I
saw was them b'ars rollin four men
over the ground. It wasn't a minit
befo' I knowed who them men was.
They was revenoo fellers who hed got
news of my still and was sneakin up
the ravine to ketch me red handed.
The b'ars had met 'em and pitched
right In. I reckon the fellers was too
surprised to fire a shot, though all had
pistols, and the~ way them b'ars did
slam 'em around was a caution. Two
of the fellers broke away as soon as I
got thar, but the other two was so bad
ly clawed that arter the b'ars left 'em
they could skassly crawl, and I'm suah
they laid out in the woods all nIght. I
was much oblee.;ed to the varmints, as
yo' may reckon, as they bed saved me
from a surprise, and in my gratitood I
said to the ole woman:
"'I ain't gwing to play no tricks on
a varmint what >ns saved me from
ruin, and I shan't *rv to captur' 'em.
'Deed, but I'll furnish 'em with free
co'n juice and let 'em hey a good
"They was back next day fur their
drink, and, rememberin how a quart
had made 'em ugly drunk, I only sot
out a pint. They lapped It up and
looked fur mo', and when no mo' was
fo'thcomin they gin us a surprise party.
Thar was fo' men of us at the still
that day, and arter growlin around fur
awhile them b'ars cum chargin down
upon us. We had to scatter mighty
sudden, and they kept us away fur an
hour. Thar was no whisky to be got
at, and they tore down our shanty,
clawed cur blankets into strips and
went off growlin at each other. We
didn't see 'em ag'in fur a month.
Then one day as I was carryin a keg
of the stuff on my shoulder along a
mountain path I run full tilt into the
two of 'em. I knowed 'em in a minit,
and I jest counted on hevin a fuss with
'em. It was no use tryin to git away,
and I put down the keg and stood back
to gin 'em a chance at it. But they
4idn't take it. They walked up and
sniffed about, and as soon as they rec
ognized the smell they sorter shook
their heads and walked off and gIn me
a clear road. As I figgered it, them
b'ars had tried whisky and found that
it brung nuthin but headaches and
fightin and hard knocks. They'd jest
made up their minds that it was bad

ENGLISH AS SHE'S WRITTEN
A Telegram That Nearly Prostrated
a Washington Man.
A lamentable unfamiliarity with Eng
lish as she Is Idiomatically "spoke" on
her native heath is responsible for a
bad quarter of an hour which a certain
young lawyer of this town will not
soon forget. Ills wife has most pro
nouncedly correct tastes in everything,
including dress. Such of her gowns as
do not come direct from London town
are built in New York by the most cor
rect of English man milliners. When
she made ready to go to Long Branch
last summer, the young wife laid in a
supply of clothes that should dazzle
the natives. Her English man milliner
was, however. provokingly slow about
delivering things, and she was forced
to set off without several of the frocks
she had intended taking with her. For
the first week after she went away she
wrote to her devoted husband at home
every day. For the second week she
wrote every other day. In the third
week four days passed without a line
from her. On the fifth day a telegram
was delivered at the young lawyer's
"Wife's body forwarded this morn
The signature was a scrawl, but the
message was enough to chill the very
marrow of that young husband's bones.
It had been sent from New York. le

wife running up to town for a day's
shopping. Ie thought of the frightful
heat. He knew just.how it had all come
about, and with a horror stricken face
he dashed out into the street and fair
ly ran to the house of his wife's sister
to acquaint her with the frightful
news. He was past speech when he
reached the house, but he held out the
fatal telegram. The sister read it.
"Well," said she, "it's time he sent it

COOLING DRINKS IN TURKEY.
Beverages and Ices Sold on All the
On all the main streets nearly overy
other shop has a counter of white mar
ble and large bottles of Iced water, lem
onade, cherry sirup. pomegranate sirup
or something of the sort. Green leaves
surround the bottles, and a little ma
chine keeps up a tinkling of glasses to
attract the passersby. Certain shops
are known for their specialties In cer
tain sirups and others for their water,
about which Turks are very particular
and can tell at once from which of the
many springs near the capital it comes.
The streets swarm with itinerant sell
ers with elaborate arrangements for
keeping the water cold. Some have a
regular booth where they dispense
anything from water to a gazelle,
which is the name for effervescing
The simplest method is that adopted
by those who carry about a huge glass
bottle holding about two gallons of
lemonade on the mouth of which is bal
anced a large lump of ice, continually
dripping into the bottle. These drinks
are the cheapest, one farthing a tum
bler. Unfortunately the coin represent
ing a farthing is almost extinct, so that
the drinker has to drink two glasses or
come back next day for the balance.
The ice cream venders, too, must not
be forgotten. Their picturesque get up
is v-er5 distinctive, and they do a roar
ing trade. The ices they sell are very
pure, and one never hears of cases of
illness among those eating them. The
time when the men do their best busi
ness with Europeans is at night after
dinner. Every one is then sitting out
side on the terraces or balconies over
hanging the Bosporus. The ice man
comes along in a boat and seems at
once to supply a long felt want.-Con

believer in men of letters standing by
each other, worked tremendously hard
to help on the fund which the Authors'
society of London is trying to accumu
late, from which pensions are to be
paid to authors whose literary merit
has not brought them a corresponding
income and who view increasing years
Once an unfortunate writer who vis

Buckigham street, by the Embank

with something in his pocket, "Oh, sir,
I feel that Providence must have sent
me to you!"
And the reply came with a twinkle in
his benefactor's eye, "Let us hope,
however, that Providence will not ac

Camels In Water.
Camels cannot swim. They are very
buoyant, but ill balanced, and their
heads go under water. They can,
however, be taught to swim rivers
with the aid of goatskins or jars
fastened under their necks. During
the Baluchistan expedition of 1898S the
camels were lowered into the sea from
the ships, and their drivers, plunging
overboard, clambered on to the backs
of their charges, causing the animals'
heads to come up, and thus assisted

They Increase a Conductor's Work
and Are Trying to His Temper.
"Some people have no sympathy for
street car conductors," said one of their
number after he had had a peculiarly
lively time in making change and giv
ing and collecting transfers, says the
New York Times.
"Now," continued the conductor,
"there is one little matter that would
save us lots of trouble if the people
would only bear it in mind, and that is
the way they hand in their transfers.
"Some men and a few women know
enough to hand us the little strips of
paper just as they receive them-that
is, spread out in such a way that we
can glance at them. see that they are
all right and then place them with the
package already collected. The ma
jority of people don't do this. and as a
rule the women are the worst of the
"When a woman gets a transfer, she
folds it up into as small a space as
possible and then stows it away in her
purse. When the time comes to collect
this from her, she tishes the wad of pa
per out of the purse. hands it to the
conductor and sits back in her seat
content with what she has done.
"The conductor has to unfold this
piece of paper to see if it is really the
proper transfer. This takes time, and
when there are a dozen women on the
car all doing the same thing the poor
conductor has more than he can do to
keep his temper. Men as a rule don't
fold their transfers, but content them
selves with shoving the slips into their
pockets andl then producing a crumpled
piece of paper when it is- called for,
tossing It to the conductor, who has to
smooth it into shape.

of handing in a railroad or theater tick

Stowaway brides are not as rare at
the barge offie as one would believe.
It is quite easy for a girl to slip aboard
an outgoing steamer and stow herself
in one of the bunks below decks, lying
quietly there until well at sea. A case
happened a little while ago, the girl
coming to meet her fiance here. As
both were poor, the former resorted to
this perilous expedient to accomplish
the desired end. One would think
that such a herole endeavor would de
serve a better reception. But on arrlv
lg, having been worked very hard on
shipboard for passage, worn and wor
ried- almost to distraction, the maiden
was so changed by her ordeal ot love
that when her betrothed met her he
refused to marry her. A few days
later, while being taken back to the
ship for deportation, she leaped into
the bay. Rescued gallantly, she linger
ed a prisoner in the charity hospital.
but died some weeks later, literally of
a broken heart.-Alnslee's Magaralne.
Strength In Aluminium.
In reply to the question which. it Is
said, metal workers frequently ask,
"What is the strength of aluminium?"
The AluminIum World says that cast
aluminium is about equal in strength
to cast iron in tension, while in resist
ng compression it Is comparatively
weak. Under transverse strain alu
minium is not very rigid, but It will
bend nearly double before breaking.
The tensile strength of aluminium is
greatly improved by forging and press
ing at a temperature of 600 degrees F.,
and aluminium alloyed with nickel is
much stronger than the pure metaL.
