"I was in Mississippi 'iuring the car

teller, "and one night at a hotel I was
robbed of watch and money. I found
out next day that it was one of the
colored servants, and I went to a jus

man, and he didn't seem anxious to dc
the right thing. I think he was in with
the thief, though willing to give me a

stand, he declared that if he had stolen
anything it was while he was walking
around in his sleep. The statemeni

a somnambulist and was willing he

to enter my room in his sleep that very
night and leave my lost property on a

Mrs. Morse had never used a tele

with her from his office whenever he
"I do just love to talk through the
telephone!" Mrs. Morse declared after
three days' experience. "The time
doesn't seem half as long from morn

"'m glad of that, my dear," said her
husband plmeantly. "I've thought once

had to ring up before getting any
answer that you didn't enjoy It."
"Oh, .no, George," said little Mrs.
Morse earnestly, "but you know some

Lake Gearge is situated about four
miles from the railway station at Bun

years engaged the attention of scien

The lake was discovered by a bush
man in 1820 and was known to the
blacks as the "big water." It was then
supposed to form the source of a river
having Its mouth on the south coast,
but subsequent visitors were mueh
perplexed at the manner in which the
blacks avoided the lake, of which they
appeared to entertain a superstitious
dread, one aged aboriginal stating she
had seen It all covered with trees, an
other explaining that the whole of the
water sunk through the bottom and
disappeared, while others remembered
the lake only as a series of small
During the following 20 years con
siderable variations were noted in the
depth and extent of the lake. In 1841
the lake became partially dried up, the
moist portions being simply grassy
swamps. A few months later large
numbers of sheep were pastured in the

TEACHING A YOUNG LARK.
How Its Mother Coaches It to Hop
About and Fly.
J. M. Barrie, the noted Scottish story
writer, in Scribner's Magazine told
how a young lark got its first lesson.
A baby lark had got out of its nest
sideways, a fall of a foot only, but a
dreadful drop for a baby.
"You can get back this way," its
mother-said, and showed-it the way.
But when the baby tried to leap it fell
on its back. Then the mother marked
out lines on the ground on which it
was to practice hopping, and it got
along beautifully so long as the mother
was there every moment to say, "How
wonderfully you hop!"
"Now teach me to hop up," said the
little lark, meaning that it wanted to
fly, and the mother tried to do it in
vain. She could soar up, up, very
bravely, but she could not explain how
she did it.
"Wait till the sun comes out after
the rain," she said, half remembering.
"What is sun? What is rain?" the
lit' bird asked. "If you cannot teach
me . ) fly, teach me to sing."
"When the sun comes out after rain,"
the mother replied, "then you will
know how to sing."
The rain came and glued the little
bird's wings together.
"I shall never be able to fly or sing,"
Then of a sudden it began to blink
its eyes, for a glorious light had spread
over the world, catching every leaf
and twig and blade of grass in tears
and putting a smile in every tear. The
baby bird's breast swelled, it did not
know why; it fluttered from the
ground, it did not know why.
"The sun has come out after the
rainI" it trilled. "Thank you, sun!
Thank you! Thank you! Oh, mother,
did you hear me? I can sing."
Then it floated up. up, calling,
"Thank you, thank you, thank you!"
to the sun. "Oh, mother, do you
see me? I am flying!"
Confiscation In Morocco.
It is a custom in Morocco that all the
property of an official reverts at death
to the crown. The lQgic which leads to
such a result is simple, for the govern
ment argues that all fortunes thus ac
cumulated consist of moneys illegally
retained by the authorities. A gov
ernor when appointed Is probably pos
sessed of no considerable fortune.
When he dIes, he may be a million
aire. Whence came his wealth ? Squeez
ed most certainly from the tribes under
.his authority and therefore amassed
only by the prerogatives of the position
in which the sultan had placed him.
It has never struck the Moorish gov
erament that these great fortunes
might more honorably be returned to
the people from whom they were sto
len. The result Is entire confiscation
to the crown, including often such- pri
vate property as his. governor may
have been possessed of before his ap
pointment and not seldom, too, of the
property of his relatives.
When the mighty fall in Morocco, the
crash brings down with them their
families, even uncles and cousins and
all connected with them, and It is not
seldom that the sons of great gov
ernors, who have been brought up in
the luxury of slaves and horses and
retinues of mounted men, have to go
begging in the streets.-Blackwood.
Peers of (eat Britain have the right
to be hanged with silken cords Instead

Death Often Unkind In the Maner
of Their Taking O.
Of the monarchs who have reigned
over England since the drys of the
Norman conquest nearly one -uarter of
the number have met violent death.
William I was killed by a fall from
his horse, William II was shot while
hunting, whether by accident or de
sign is still one of the unsolved prob
lems of history; Richard I wais killed
by a shaft from a crossbow while
besieging the city of Chaluz, in France;
Richard II was murdered in Pontefract
castle, Edward II was murdered in
Berkley castle, and Edward 7* in the
Tower of London, Richard III was
kiled on the battlefield of Bosworth
and Charles I had his head cut off in
Elizabeth's death was hastened by
remorse that she had ordered the ex
ecution of Essex, and her sister Mary
sickened and died soon after the loss
of Calais, declaring that the name of
the city would be found after death
written on her heart. The death of
Edward III's son. the Black Prince,
caused the aged ~monarch to die of
grief. So. after the loss of his son
ih the White Ship, Henry.! was never
seen to smile again and lived only a
short time. Henry VI and George III
were insane during the latter years
of their reigns and finally died from
what in these days would be called
paresis. Charles II, Henry VII, Ed
ward IV and George IV hastened their
deaths by the dissipated and sensual
lives they lived. Only two monarchs
died of that great national scourge,
consumption; they were Edward VI
and Henry VII. Queen Anne's .death
was due as much as anything else
to overfeeding. ,Only two monarchs,
Henry VI and George III, died after
Mrs. Gilbert and Augustin Daly.
"The pleasantest recollections of my
stage life are those connected with the
governor," sairl Mrs. John Gilbert "We
never called him Mr. Daly-that is, we
older ones, who knew him well.
"He never bothered much with Jim
Lewis and myself. He had more trou
ble with John Drew and Ada Rehan.
They were young and needed looking
after, you know.
"He was very set In his ways, and if
he took a fancy to a piece of stage fur
niture he invariably introduced It Into
every play. He had a pair- of large,
dark blue majolica vases which were
the bane of my life. They were always
placed near a doorway a such a man
ner that you had to has the dreadful
things always on your mind or you
would run into them.
"I had complained several times to
the governor and begged him to puf
them In the storeroom, but he had tak
en a fancy to them, and they remained.
"Well, one day I did knock one of
them down, and 'It was smashed to bits.
The governor never said a v-ord, but
he looked' volumes. He was arranging
the Interior for a new play a few days
later, and In one scene I had to faint
on a lounge.
"'Tom,' he said to the siage hand,
'see that that lounge is good and strong,
for Mrs. Gilbert Is very gawky, and It
would ruin the scene If she smashed It
when she fainted.'
"That was all, but I knew that he
knew how that vase was broken."

You should only have tried to shoot
him. Twenty-five dollars."-Exchange.
