DIS UADED FROM SUCIDE
The Convincing Argument a Parson
Used With Telling Effect.
"An Arkansas country store keeper of
my acquaintance had a bad attack of
melancholy about a year ago," said a
New Orleans drummer, "and attempted
to commit suicide. le put a pistol to
his head and pulled the trigger, but
the cartridge failed to explode, and be
fore he < 'uld try it again the weapon
was takea away. However, he swore
he would do the deed the first chance
he got, and he was no doubt really of
that intention when he was talked out
of it by a little itinerant preacher who
was a reformed gambler. The argu
ment used by the parson was so pecul
iar and ingenious that it made a deep
impression on my mind. 'You knew
you would be a dead man,' he said as
nearly as I can remember. 'if it wasn't
for the fact that there was a defective
cartridge under the hammer of your re

a very unusual thing.' he went on.
'They calculate at the manufactory
that there is possibly one to the quar
ter million turned out. The chance of
that bad cartridge being in the boxful
that you bought for your gun was not
over one to another quarter million,
the chance of your getting hold of it
when you loaded was exactly 1 to 50,
and the chance of it being under the
hammer was 1 to 5. That makes the
total odds 1 to 500,055.'
"At that point the little preacher sud
denly straightened up, his eyes flashed
fire, his chest expanded, and he shook
his forefinger under the storekeeper's
nose. 'You miserable sinner,' he roar
ed, 'do you imagine for a m nute that
the Lord would have given you that
kind of odds and let you win out on

ALL HONOR TO PARSLEY.
Curion' Folklore and History Con
cerning This Common Herb.
Some quaint ideas have hovered
around that familiar garden herb and
dish adorner, parsley. In England,
Devonshire folk declare that parsley
must never be transplanted or great
evil will follow. Suffolk people say it
will not come up double unless sown
on Good Friday-a notion that experi
ments might surely soon have disprov
ed-while ancient dwellers in Hamp
shire steadfastly refuse to give any
parsley away. Ask them for roses, lilies,
fruit or rare vegetables, and basket
fuls will be gladly bestowed on you,
but request a few sprigs of parsley and
you will be told, with a solemn shaking
of heads, "No, we never pick parsley
for any one, unless it's paid for!"
The great historian Plutarch relates
an interesting anecdote on the subject
of this herb. Timoleon was leading an
army against the Carthaginians. "But
as he was ascending a hill from the
top of which the enemy's camp and all
their vast forces would be in sight, he
met some mules laden with parsley,
and his men took it into theIr heads
that It was a bad omen because we
usually crown the sepulcher with pars
ley, and thence comes the proverb with
regard to one that is dangerously ill,
'Such a one has need of nothing ibut
parsley.' To deliver them from this
superstition and to remove the panic
Timoleon ordered the troops to halt,
and making a speech suitable to the
occasion, observed among other things
that crowns were brought them before
the victory and offered themselves of
their own accord. For the Oorinthians
from all antiquity have looked upon a
wreath of parsley as sacred, crowning
the victors with it at the isthmian
games." The general then crowned
himself and all his officers with pars
ley wreaths, and led his men to bat
tle, their fears conquered, the result
being a decisive victory. - Chicago

A Remarkable Railroa.
One of the most remarkable railroads
: the United States Is that which runs
from Fabyan, at the foot of Mount
Washington, to the summit-a distance
of 3.38 miles. The time required in
making the ascent Is one and one-half
hours, which is at the rate of a mile
In 27 minutes. The descent is made in
the same time. The fare Is $4 for the
round trip, or at the rate of 00 cents
a mle. No other road in the world
charges quite so much and few run
trains at a speed quite so slow. About
5000 passengers are carried annually.

One evening little Lucy knelt to lisp

Many an older person thinks this

A eieRese Ring Game.
The small rubber rings that are used
in every household with which to seal
preserve jars may be made the means
of much amusement when a lively
game is desired for the amusement of
friends. First obtain a smooth head of
a flour or sugar barrel and see that the
pieces are all fastened together, form
ing a circular board, or any smooth
board about a square foot in size will
serve the purpose.
Procure ten coat hooks of medium
size and secure them into the board
and mark above each hook its number,
ranging from No. 1 to No. 10. A hole
may be made in the upper end of the
board or a screw eye inserted by which
to hang it upon a nail in the wall.
No. 10 is a sort of a "bullseye," and
each player, having three of the rubber
rings, takes turns in throwing them
from a position about ten feet away,
endeavoring to "hook" as many on the
board as possible. A score is kept of
the points gained by each player, the
one first getting 100 points being the
winner. However, exactly 100 points
must be made. For instance, if a piay
er has 99 he has to work for "hook No.
1," as any other hook would carry him
over the mark. This difficulty adds to
the interest of the game.
An advantage of the game is that no
noise is made nor damage done by the
rings, and it may be improvised by any
boy or girl.-New York Sun.
Mr. G. W. Steevens in his book, "In
India," says that the first sight of that
country is amazing and stupefying, be
cause everything is so noticeable that
you notice nothing. The common crows
are blue, the oxen have humps. It is a
new life in a new world. In describing
the native life he gives this story of
their indifference to punishment:
A simple ryot the other day had said
goodby to his relatives and was pinion
ed, when suddenly he asked to speak
again to his brother.
"Recollect," he said, "It's 20 kawa
surs of barley that man owes me, not
dawa surs," which are smaller. Then
he turned and was hanged without
moving a muscle.
Another man, a Pathan, was being
hanged, when the rope broke. The
warder bade him go up on to the scaf
fold again; but he objected.
"No," he said; "I was sentenced to be
hanged, and banged I've been!"
"Not so, friend," argued the warder.
"You were sentenced to be hanged un
til you were dead, and you're not
It was a new view to the Pathan,
and he turned to the superintendent,
"Is that right, sahib?"
"Yes; that's right"
"Very well. I didn't understand."
And he went composedly up the steps
and was hanged again.
Worshiping a Turtle.
At a place called Kotron, on the
French Ivory Coast, the natives be
lieve that to eat or destroy a turtle
would mean death to the guilty one or
sickness among the family. The fetich
men, of which there are plenty. declare
that years ago a man went to sea fish
ing. In the night his canoe was thrown
upon the beach empty. Three days
afterward a turtle came ashore at the
same place with the man on its back
alive and well. Since that time they
have never eaten or destroyed one of
that species, although they enjoy other
If onA. happens now to be washed
ashore, there is a great commotion in
the town. Firstly, the women sit down
and start singing and beating sticks;
next a small piece of white cloth (color
must be white) is placed on the turtle's
back. Food is then prepared and plac
ed on the cloth, generally plantains,
rice and palm o1I. Then, amid a lot
more singing, dancing and antics of
the fetich people, it is carried back in
to the sea and goes on its way rejoic

Imprisoned by a Ostrich.
A guardsman in the reserve of offi
cers who is better known for his swag
ger than his brains had an.unfortunate
experience in South Africa.
He was stationed about 100 miles
from Cape Town at a remount depot
One morning a farmer stopped him as
he was taking a constitutional and
warned him against crossing an inclos

had become bad tempered. The guards
man said that no ostrich ever hatched

went on unmoved.
As he had not returned home four
hours afterward his brother officers

MADE HER FORTUNE.
Boarding Ionse Steaks That Grew
Tender Under a Four Ton. Hammer.
"Speaking of luck." said a reminis
cent man, "reminds me of how fortune
came to a boarding house keeper in a
mill town where I once lived. There
came to the house when he first struck
the town a new millhand. This board
er seemed at first just like any other
young man with a good appetite, out
of whom the profit to be made was
likely to be small, but it was speedily
discovered that he was a man of abil
ity and promise, who was likely to get
on at the mill. He made great prog

of the forge departhient there, the boss.

"As far as he was concerned the only
thing that marred his happiness was
the toughness of the steaks they had
at the boarding house, and that they
were tough nobody could deny. But

he had proved himself to be at the

HOW TURKS EAT.
They CUe No Tables, Chairs, Knives.
Forks or Plates.
The Turks use no tables in their
homes, and chairs are unknown, says
London Answers. Instead there is a
huge wooden frame built in the middle
of the room, about 18 inches high. and
when the family assembles to dine
cushions are brought, placed upon the
frame, and on these the members seat
themselves, tailor fashion, forming a
circle around a large tray which occu
pies the center.
The tray is a very large wooden,
plated or silver affair, according to the
social and financial condition of the
family, and thereon is deposited a ca
pacious bowl. About it are ranged
saucers of sliced cheese, anchovies, ca
viare and sweetmeats of all sorts. In
terspersed with these are goblets of
sherbet, pieces of hot unleavened bread
and a number of boxwood spoons,
with which to drink the soup.
Knives, forks and plates do not fig
ure in the service, but each one has a
napkin spread upon his knees, and ev
ery one, armed with a spoon, helps
When this is consumed, the bowl is
borne away, and another great dish
takes its place. This time it is a con
glomeration of substantials, all stewed
up together, such as mutton, game or
poultry. The mess has been divided
by the cook into small portions, which
are dipped up wvith the aid of a spoon
or with the fingers.
For the host to fish out of the mess a
wing or leg of a fowl and present it to
a guest is considered a great compli
ment, and for a Turk of high degree to
roll a morsel between his fingers and
then put it into the mouth of a visitor
is looked upon as the height of favor
and good manners.
A Dye Wanted.
Our consul in Birminghamn says that
several years ago one of the Barbers,
of threadmuaking fame, told him that
the discoverer of a fast black dye for
linen thread could command his own
price. Examine the thread holding the
buttons in men's clothing, and you will
see that after a short time the black
disappears, and even new linen thread
has not sufficient depth of color. It is
impossible to find in the English shops
men's black cotton socks with tops at
all elastic. The fast black dye for cot
ton was the discovery of an English
chemist. English hose manufacturers
would not at first buy his secret, but
the Germans did and built up a trade
all over the world.-New York Times.

Coming Down With a Parachute.
"Coming down from the clouds in a
parachute is like a dream," said a cir
cus balloon artist. "Ever dream of
falling from a high place? You come
down, alight quietly and awake, and
you're not hurt. Well, that's the para
chute drop over again. No: there Is no
danger. A parachute can be guided
readily on the down trip, but you can't
steer a balloon. To guide a parachute
out of harm's way a practc..d hand
can tilt it one way or the other, spill
out air and thus work it to where you
want to land or to avoid water, trees,
chimneys or church spires.
"Circus ascensions are generally
made in the evening. When the sun
goes down, the wind goes down. The
balloon then shoots Into the air, and
the parachute drops back on the circus
lot or not far away.
"A balloon is made of 4 cent muslin
and weighs about 500 pounds. A para
chute is made of 8 cent muslin. The
rope that secures the parachute is cut
with a knife. The aeronaut drops
fully 100 feet before the parachute be
gins to fill. It must fill if you're up
high enough. Invariably the fall is
head first. When the parachute be
gins to fill, the descent is. less rapid,
and finally when the parachute has
finally filled it bulges out with a pop.
Then the aeronaut climbs on to his tra
peze and guides the parachute to a safe
landing. In seven cases out of ten you
can land back on the lot where you
started from."-New York News.
