We can safely say there has not been displayed in Manning for many
days a more beautiful assortment of Crockery than we now have; we can

Many of them, no doubt, would
be glad to touch at the port of

Thursday-There is spooning
going on everywhere all over

men are in great demand. One
fine looking fellow from Cleve

spooners get out of the way.
The captain is not a sentimental
person. All the sailors go round
with broad grins on their faces.
It is supposed to come from

talk. The bos'n is the only one
of them that keeps a sour face.
It is said he has been married
four times. The engagement
roll now numbers 11.
Sunday-This was a day of
rest for everybody, except the
spooners. The steward says he
doesn't care how much love
making they do on board. It's
a great saving for him. he says.
Those who are deepest in love
don't care to eat. Nineteen en

Monday-The captain says
there's no use talking, the sere

The sailors can't hear the or
ders because of the love songs.
There's a Chicago schoolma'am
with a mandolin, who makes life
miserable for everybody. She
sings the saddest love songs
every night until 12 o'clock.
The captain says he'll either put
her in irons, or feed her to the
sharks. Twenty-four engage

Emperor William, it seems,
has been led by the action of the
German mother and the Ameri
can widow of his murdered en
voy at Pekin, the late Baron von
Ketteler, in declining to receive
the proffered visits of Prince
Chun to reject all the magnificent
gifts brought by the young prince
from China fo:: His Majesty's
acceptance. The Emperor, after
Chun had presented in the name
of his brother, Emperor, Kwan
gsu, expressions of profound
sorrow for the assassination of
Baron von Ketteler, had mani
fested a disposition to concede to
the Prince the honors and con
sideration due to his imperial
rank, and which had until that
time been withheld in conse
quence of the nature of his mis
sion; but the Prince was invited
to reviews, to state banquets,
etc., and was treated with so
much distinction as to cause the
people to grumble. But the
Emperor seems to have been re
called to his senses in the matter
by the action of the widowed
niother and wife of the ill-fated
envoy in declining to permit the
Prince to cross their threshold,
or to express to them any condo
lences in their bereavement, and
it was following this that he
caused the department of For
eign Affairs to inform Chun that
he could not accept any of the
magnificent presents which had
been brought for him, containing
vases cf abaster inlaid with
rubies and emeralds, priceless
porcelain, magnificent bronze
vases, jade and ivory carved, and

First Silver Wedding.
According to a historian, this Is the
way the first silver wedding came
about. It was in the time of Hugues
Caput. Two of his most faithful serv
ants, a man and a woman, had grown
gray in his employ. How could he re
Calling the woman, he- said: "Your
oervice is great, greater than the man's,
whose service Is great enough, for the
woman always finds work harder than
a man, and therefore I will give you a
reward. At your age I know of none
better than a dowry and a husband.
The dowry Is here. This farm from
this time forth belongs to you. If this
man who has worked with you for five
and twenty years is willing to marry
you, then the husband is ready."
"Your majesty," said the old peasant,
"how is it possible that we should mar
ry, having already silver hairs?"
"Then it shall be a silver wedding."
And the king gave the couple silver
enough to keep them In plenty.
Such was the origin of the silver
wedding, a custom which, spreading all
through France, subsequently became
known to the world. .
Points on a Lobster.
A lobster is found in the water, but
not always-in fact, some of the most
successful lobsters that ever lobstered
were born and raised on dry land.
One can usually tell a lobster by Its
actions. For instance, if a young man
enters a crowded drawing room and
walks all over the feet of the assem
bled guests without their consent or
approval the young man at once be
comes a lobster.
The fathers of lobsters usually have
money. In fact, It is difficult to be a
real stand up and fall down lobster
unless the lobster's father has money.
It is an udd fact that many girls
seem to admire lobsters. It would
seem that a girl ought to know better,
but she doesn't until she marries a
lobster. Then she tumbles.
Lobsters have no brains. If you
don't believe it, split a lobster's head
open with an ax if you don't care any
thing about the ax.
This world would be a much more
desirable abiding place if there were
no lobsters in it.-Ohio State Journal.

said the witness.
"And what did you answer to that?"
I asked the counsel.
1"'Well,' says I, 'How much?'"
"And what did the agent say?"
"He didn't say nothing. The other
gentleman comes to me and says, 'You
must vote for the Liberals, Hodge.'"
"And what did you answer?"
"I said, 'How much?' So he arst me
what t'other gentleman offered me, and
I I told him 5 shillings."
"And what did the Liberal agent do?"
"He gave me 10 shillings."
Counsel sits down triumphant, and
up starts the other side.

"Did you vote for the Tories?"

The Swedes delight in "combinaton
diving," and two nien will perform
many clever feats together. One of the
most grotesque of these is when one
man stands upright on the springboard
and tightly clasps another man's body
round the waist, holding him head
downward and putting his own head
through the man's legs. When the up
right man springs from the board, he
throws his legs into the air so that the

round the waist, turn a somersault, and
when they reach the water the man

The handspring dive is a very effect
ive specialty of Swedish swimmers.
The performer takes off from the div
ing board with hands Instead of feet,
turning his body in order to descend
feet foremost or somersaulting to ar
rive head downward. Very graceful
also is the back dive, in which the
spring is made backward, the body
turning toward the springboard. Dou
ble somersault dives are made from
platforms 30 or 50 feet high, the diver
making two turns in the air and enter
ing the water feet foremost.-Peter
Not the Same Wife.
The old gentleman had returned to
the home of his boyhood for the first
time in ten years or more and, as on
the last occasions, he had written "and
wife" after his name on the hotel reg
ister. Of course the keeper of the hotel
was glad to see him and grasped him
warmly by the hand.
"Ain't grown a day older than when
you was here last," he said.
"No?" said the old gentleman half In
"Not a day," returned the tavern
keeper emphatically. "Your wife seems
to have changed more'n you."
"Oh, yes. Leastways she does to me.
Looks thinner than when you was here
"Yes. She ain't near so fleshy as she
was, accordin to my recollection. Seems
like she's taller, too, an her hald don't
look just the same to me. an-an"
"And," put in the old gentleman soft
ly, "she's not the same wife, jou know."
Cooking a Mackerel.
Many a dainty nose with beauty and
fortune behind it has been airily ele
vated at the mention of plain, old fash
Ioned salt mackerel, but never at the
salt mackerel as cooked by the famous
John Chamberlin of Washington. His
testimony runs to this effect:
"Take one or more mackerel and soak
about 48 hours, changing the water
once. Then put them in a pan large
enough to hold them, cover them with
cream or the nearest you can get to it,
put In oven and cook until cream is
brown. This beats any mackeiel cook
ing on earth."-New York Herald.
