THE HOME F HAMLET.
A Castle and a Grave the Melancholy
Dane Never Occupied.
William E. Curtis has been visiting
the island of Elsinore, the scene of the
tragedy of "damlet," which stands off
the northern poiat of the Danish penin
sula. He says in the Chicago Record
Herald that, although the present cas
tile of Kronborg was not built for 500
years after the time of Hamlet, the nu
merous guides will point out the plat
form where Hamlet played before the
king and the rampart upon which the
The .,:t that Ophelia does not ap
pear in the account of the monk named
Saxo-Grammaticus, who first told the
story of Hamlet and from which Shake
speare took his plot, does not interfere
with the Imagination of the poets and
guidebook writers. They point out
the place In the moat of the old castle
where she was drowned, and in the
park there Is a spring which Is chris
tened in her honor.
Near by is another spring that bears
the name of Hamlet, and In a beautiful
sequestered dale are his burial place,
marked by a cairn of stones, partially
moss covered, and a rude shaft of gran
ite which bears the Inscription, "Ham
It Is the favorite joke of scoffers to
ask the guides "where the grave used
to be." because, according to traditions
that are said to be well founded, It has
occupied its present site less than a
century and was originally in the pri
vate grounds of a merchant at the oth
er end of the town.
This gentleman became so annoyed
by the pilgrims who came t the place
that he told the town counc'l he would
pay the entire expense of lixing up a
more appropriate grave for Hamlet If
they would designate a proper location
In one of the parks. He did tz he prom
ised. The result has been satisfactory
all around. He Is not annoycd by sight
seers, and the present locati.n Is much
more convenient to the pub lIc, but up
on the payment of an extra fee the
guides will point out the original grave.
However, Hamlet's tomb. Ophelia's
drowning place, the rampart where the
ghost walked and the grassy plain
which Hamlet used as a st.ige for his
celebrated outdoor performance are a
great attraction to tourists and support
several hotels. They have brought
much money to Elsinore, and public in
terest in them still continues.
Notwithstanding the doutt that has
been cast upon their authenticity, all of
the great tragedians have been there,
Including Bernhardt, Irving, Forrest
and Booth, and largely th:.-ough con
tributions from the dramatic profes
sion a statue has been erected by Niel
sine Petersen, a Danish artist.
Everything about the town is named
after Hamlet or Ophelia, just as every
thing at Stratford-on-Avon is named
after Shakespeare. There is a Hamlet
bicycle and a Hamlet hotel, a Hamlet
biscuit and a Hamlet cigar, Hamlet
perfumery and Hamlet hams, Hamlet
butter and Hamlet dressing eases and
traveling bags. Ophelia does not fare
so well, although there are several
places named in her honor. The ghost
has his promenade, but the. king and
queen are entirely ignored. They have
a very bad reputation.
The Work of the Butterflr.
In our growing apprehensions of the
linked life of the universe the flight of
the butterfly has gained a significance
and interest far beyond the casual ap
preciation of its radiance and grace.
It Is no longer as the frivolous saun
terer who through the sunny days flut
ters his life away among perfumed
petals that he figures. The beauty has
Its function and subserves a vital pur
pose in the economy of nature. Like
the bee, the butterfly is a workman in
God's garden and his mission to carry
pollen from blossom to blos:som, thus
fertilizing and cross fertilizing the
Without these winged messengers of
the air more than half the flowers in
the world would be exterminated. N~ot
only do they add to the color and love
liess of summer's pageantry, but as

the Interest of' the spectacle to realize
that the swarm of opalescent insects
one sees in the meadows, eddying in
the golden sunlight, rising End falling
in lazy abandon, swaying d:"owsily on
the clover blossoms or balancing on the
petals of the new opened viclets, in an
exsthee apparently fetterless and
fancy free, are really seriously at work
performing the function of their being?
The Moors and T'heir ~Iora3s.
In appearance the Moors are a very
fine race. For many generations their
mothers have been chosen for their
beauty. An active life in the saddle
has developed them physically and a
splendid appearance is the result. In
addition, they have manners of un
equaled suavity and polish, the resut
of early years spent In the harem.
They are so habituated to think wetll
of themselves as followers of the true
prophet that an uneasy conscience
never troubles them.
A man may be an utter scoundrel,
cruel and licentious, and yet be regard
ed as a saint if he is descended from
the prophet and conforms to the out
ward ceremonial of Islam. His brow
is frank and unclouded, his smile is
even benevolent, and yet It would be
impossible to describe the details of his
life. Such are the Moors-an interest
ing tableau vivant of many a chapter
in the book of Judges, or Samuel or
the Kings.-African Review.

Speaking at a presentation ceremony
in connection with a golf handicap at
Morton Hall, near Edinburgh. the other
day, Baille Mackenzie, who took to golf
rather late in life, related that at Skibo
castle on one occasion Mr. Carnegie

course made there.

that golf has done him as much good

Inseets and X Rhys.
A writer in The American X Ray
Journal tells of some unusual experi
ments upon insects with Roentgen rays.
A box was made, half of wood and
half of sheet lead. In the wooden half
a number of larvae of files, bees, bee
tles and other irqsects were placed, 4nd
the box was then put In the field of the
X rays. The insect colony at once be
came greatly excited, and after crawl
ing to and fro. finally emigrated to a
worm to the leaden half of the box,
where the rays could not penetrate.
The experiment was repeated many
times and always with the same result
A similar experiment was tried with
the blind larvae of a certain species of
beetle. A number of them were placed
in an open cigar box, which also con
tained a metal box with an opening.
No sooner were the rays turned on
than the insects showed signs of dis
tress. Their uneasiness increased, and
in a little while they all sought refuge
in the metal box. As the larym in the
second experiment were entirely sight
less their perception of the rays must
take place through the nerves of the

A certain government officer was
noted for being a hard taskmaster to

An Aretic Bill of Fare.
The Eskimos at home in their native
frozen wilds do not believe in cooking..
Their meat, be it seal, fish, venison
trout, salmon, whale blubber or cod
fish, they devour in its natural raw
state and with the same gusto with
which the average small boy tackles a
watermelon. As for bread and vege
tables, they have none, They set their
seal oil lampsl going, suspend a soap
stone dish filled with snow over it, and
with the water thus obtained they mix
an equal quantity of molasses procured
from the Hudson Bay company. That
they drink and are happy. That is the
sum total of an arctic cuisine.

One Way to Boil a Ham.
The following is the recipe of the fa
mous John Chamberlin of Washington
for boiling a ham:
"To boil a ham a la Chamberlin, the
night before put the ham in a tub of
cold water, fleshy part downward, skin
part up. Next morning put the ham in
a large kettle or pot of cold water to
boil. Let the water get hot gradually.
and continue to cook the ham in a slow
bol, scarcely more than a simmer. At
*the end of five hours take the ham out,
throw the water out of the pot and fill
it with fresh cold water. Put the ham
back immediately and let it simmer or
boil slowly five hours more. Then add,
according to the size of your purse, a
gallon of vInegar or a gallon of claret
or burgundy or champagne; then sim
mer or boil for three hours more. Then
take the ham off, skin It and put in a
cool place. Next morning trim it and
eat when you are ready.
"To prevent the ham from tearing or
the water suddenly boiling too fast it
is always safe to sew a piece of cotton
cloth tightly around the ham so as to
fit as close as a glove. This will keep
the meat firm and guard against the
neglect of the cook in letting the water
boil too fast."-New York Herald.
