trod this particular lot of 'em into ship

your mother she must bathe 'em in sev

might just as well put a lot of sandpa

"What's the reason they ain't dried
currants?" demanded a disputative
customer when the girl had gone.
"They ain't dried currants any more
than they are dried pumpkins." replied
the grocer. "The reason they ain't
dried currants is that they weren't cur

reason enough, ain't it?"

"But you said these were dried cor

a corinth, anyhow?"
"A corinth is the smallest grape that
grows," replied the learned grocer.
"and it lost its name years and years
ago because it was gradually corrupted
Into 'currant.' which becanie also the
name of the acidulated little berry of
our garden, which you might dry from

"This little grape grows all over the

that's what gave it its proper name.
The bunches don't grow much bigger
than a stemn of red currants, and they

A MUTUAL SURPRISE.
The Meeting Between an Ambitou
Hunter and i11 First Grizzly.
In "Sketches of .ife In the Golden
State" Coloiel Alt: t . Evans tells an
amusing anecd;t.- an ambitions
hunter who met I . :rast gr!zzly bear
in procession. The incident occurred
in the woods near the site of the pres
ent town of Monterey.
The hunter sat down to rest in the
shade of a tree and unwittingly went
to sleep. Wheln he woke. it was near
sunset, and he sat up, rubbing his eyes
and contemplating a return to his hotel
several miles distant.
Just then a rustli:g and tracking
noise from a clump of chaparral about
100 yards away attracted his attention.
Out walked a grizzly bear. a monarch
of his kind. It. }awned. lieke'ld his
jaws and then advan(cd toward the
tree where our hunter sat. but evident
ly was unconscious of his presence.
His grizzly majesty ii'l proceeded
about 20 paces when a fnci:ale hear fol
lowed him, and an instant later a third
grizzly followed her at a slow, sham
The hunter sat spellbound with ter
ror as the procession came toward him
until the forward grizzly was within
30 yards. Then, scarcely realizing
what he did, he sprang to his feet and
uttered a frenzied yell-yell upon yell!
The effect was magical. The fore
most bear sprang into the air, turned
sharply about, knocked the female
down, rolled over her, gathered himself
up and bolted "like 4o eartloads of
rock going down a shoot," straight for
the chaparral again. the other two i
bears close at his heels and never turn
ing to see what had frightened them.
The hunter, seeing the enemy re
treating, sprang to his feet and fied at
top speed for the hotel. leaving hat and
gun behind. The truth of his wild and
startling tale was proved the next day
by the numerous bear tracks of differ
ent sizes found In the marshy ground
near by. But the three bears had gone
off beyond pursuit.
They Don't Linger In Midocean. but
Go to the Bottom.
What becomes of the ships that sink
at sea? Do they go all the way to the
bottom or do they meet somewhere un
der the surface a certain pressure that
buoys them up and holds them In equi
librium? Somebody, we forget who it
is, has given rein to his grewsome'fan
cy and pictured all the ships that have
been lost in midocean as wandering
about like so many ghosts half way be
tween the surface and the bottom.
There is no foundation whatever for
such a notion, though many persons
have it. Any object that will sink be
neath the surface of the sea will go all
the way to the bottom. The pressure
encountered on the way down. which is
simply enormous in the deeper parts.
has nothing to do with the object's
sinking, for it is exerted on the object
as well as on the water. thus equalizing
The reason whythe object sinks to the
bottom is that water is not compressi
ble; at least it is so little so that its den
sity at the bottom of the sea Is only a tri
le greater than it is at the surface. Sci
entists tell us that the water at the bot
tom is just about as much denser than
the water at the surface as sen water
is denser than fresh wvater.
This slight dif'erence In density,
therefore, does not ant' cannot stop the
downward course of a sinking ship or
any object that is heavy enough to
sink rapidly beneath the surface. Pres
sure, as we have said, is not a factor
