A Little Misunaderstanding.
Soon after the convening of a new
session of congress announcement was
made of the approaching marriage of
Anson G. McCook, who was then sec
retary of the senate. A subscription
was Immediately started among the
senators for the purchase of a wedding
present. Two or three prominent sen
ators volunteered to collect the money.
Senator X., one of the richest men in
the senate at that time, was one of
Seeing a new senator who had not
yet been approached on the subject,
Senator X. went to him and said, "Sen

"For McCook's wedding present," ex
plained Senator X.
"I'll see you about it tomorrow," an
swered Blank, with a scow].
"All right," said Senator X. as he
walked away, "but don't forget it."
Senator Blank watched him until he
was out of hearing, and then, turning
to his colleague, remarked with
"Well, I've heard of cheeky things
in my life, but that man beats all!
What do you think? He just asked me
to give him $25 to buy a wedding pres

A Much Dreaded Fly.
The man eating fly of Central Amer
Ica Inhabits the low lying coast re
gions and is much dreaded by the na
tives for the fearful results which fol
low its sting. Naturalists call it Lu
cilia hominivora. The average speci
men is about a third of an inch long.
It has a big head, with the eyes on
top. Its cheeks are a golden yellow,
its abdomen dark blue with purple
bands, its legs black, Its wings unusu
ally big, and they produce a continuous
and loud buzzing when in motion.
The person bitten by this fly gets a
disease called mylasis. It generally
begins with an itching of the nose;
then that organ swells and bleeds, next
t becomes ulcerated, and in these ul
cers may be found the larve of the fly.
The whole face becomes swollen; ery
sipelas sets in, followed by meningitis
and death. One man I knew, said a
traveler in that country, shot himself
after he had been bitten rather than
face the tortures he knew were cer
tain. Cure is difficult. Subcutaneous
injections of chloroform sometimes do
good, but as often fail. One man I
heard of was cured by lemon juice in

Ten Years Ago and low.
There is no better antidote for de
spondency than to take a measure of
your own community as It was ten
years ago and as it is today, unless
you live in an unrepresentative and
stagnant community. You will be
likely to find the roads or the streets
better than they were, the railroad
service, the postal service, possibly
even the telegraph and the telephone
service better. You will observe better
houses, more attractive grounds. The
people are better clad or more are well
clad. Inside their houses you will find
more books or, better, more bathrooms,
better lights and better furniture. A
larger proportion of children and youth
re receiving good training at better
schools. All this means more than
prosperous years. It means a higher
evel of life and a stronger ambition.
The well being of the people of the
United States Is rising higher and es
ecially is It diffusing Itself wider.
Life is constantly becoming more com
fortable and more cheerful as well as
onger and safer, leading to better con
itions for intellectual growth and so
cial development-World's Work.

Soapeads Are Valuable.
Few persons knew how very useful
soapsuds prove when employed as ma
nure. Applied to the roots of vines,
fruit trees, roses, etc., they impart a
'rigor and a rapidity of growth which
are perfectly surprising. No one who Is
so lucky as to have a garden should
waste this valuable form of manure.
It is an excellent plan to have a large

Professor Blackie said of Carlyle: "I
admired his genius. But how he would
talk, talk, talk, and give nobody a
chance to put In a word! One night I
actually shook him. His wife had been
trying all the evening to say some
thing, but there was not the smallest
chance. I took hold of him and shook
him, saying, 'Let your wife speak, you

Although the silk cotton tree Is a na
tive of South America. there is one
specimen of It In Nassau, Bahama Is
lands, that has flourished wonderfully
and is one of the greatest curiosities
on the island. It was planted more
than 200 years ago by John Miller.
The roots seem to be unable to find
their way down after the manner of
ordinary roots and so swell up like
great buttresses radiating round the
trunk of the tree, rising from the
ground to a height of from six to
twelve feet. They reach out to Irregu
lar distances, gnarled and twisted in
the most curious fashion. They turn
and bend and double a point In all
sorts of unexpected ways and make
dark hollows and ravines, where the
darkies believe the elves and gnomes
make their home.
The great seed pods are filled with a
fine, soft fleece of silk, which the na
tives use for filling their pillows and
mattresses. There are several speci
mens of the tree on the island of New
Providence, but this one is monarch of
A Fly That Kills Horses.
All white men who visit regions In
Africa infested by the tsetse fly have
much to say about It. There Is now
evidence that the tsetse Is moving
gradually to more northern regions,
and the cause Is supposed to be that
South Africa is depleted of its large
game, much of which Is moving north
ward to get away from hunters, and
the tsetse fly Is going with It.
The insect is only a little larger than
the ordinary house fly, and It resem
bless the honeybee. Its sting is hardly
as annoying as that of the mosquito,
but near the base of the proboscis Is a
little bag which contains Its poison. It
lives on the blood of animals, and only
a few species are fatally affected by
Its bite. Cattle, horses and dogs, how
ever, cannot live when bitten by the
tsetse fly. Natives who herd cattle
and travelers who depend on horses
and oxen must avoid the fly regions or
lose their stock. For human beings Its
bite has no serious consequences.
To Promote Narriages.
It is a superstition In some parts of
England that after a young couple
have departed for their honeymoon hot
water should be poured on the thresh
old in order that other marriages may
follow. With this end In view the
bride's girl friends will sometimes
drench the doorstep with boiling wa
ter from kettles heated for the purpose
of keeping the threshold warm, says
In Iceland another plan is in vogue.
There the bride, on reaching her hus
band's house, has to give a dinner
cooked with her own hands to show
how well she has been instructed In
the parental home. If she succeed in
pleasing the guests, her skill does not
only redound to her own honor, but
also to that of her whole family, and
her sisters, having shared in her edu
cational advantages, are considered
likely to make good. wives.
A Menace to Vessels.
The fiction of the mysterious load
stone mountain which drew the nails
out of ships that approached near
enough has a certain foundation In
fact, says the Siecle, only the fact has
suffered by expansion. On the coast of
Norway, near Jedern, there Is a sand
dune of nearly three-quarters of a mile
in length. The sand is mixed with par
ticles of loadstone, and when a ship
comes in the vicinity the compass be
comes Irregular, and the vessel is en
tangled in a kind of whirlpool and
Without the contrasted patience of
moral and physical pain there are men
of high Intellect for whom the latter
has no terrors. The chemist Lavoisler
was summoned during the reign of
terror in France to his death. He
calmly requested a few days In order'
to see the result of some experiments
which he had In progress-in vain. This
great philosopher of his day fell an Im
mediate martyr to the political necessi
ties of the ruthless tyrant Robespierre.
Turtle eggs are an acquired taste
with most people, although they are
not so with bears. They have a rough,

each one. If you squeeze It out, the
dimple appears on the other side, and
you can never get hold of a turtle egg
which hasn't got a dimple In It.

While a good cigar, used temperate
ly two or three times a day, may be
smoked by the average adult man to
good advantage, excessive indulgence
in smoking Is very harmful. It Is only
necessary to recall one's first cigar and
the profound effect it produced to real
ize that the smoking of tobacco in large
quantities Is trifling with a dangerous
agent, s- ys the Baltimore Sun.
The chief effects of smoking are from
the nicotine and empyreumatic oil, the
first being an active poison-an infin
itesmal quantity will destroy life-and
the latter, which is the rank accumu
lation In the stem of the pipe, is also
a potent poison, one drop on the tongue
of a cat having been fatal. The nico
tine and the oil both act on the nervous
system, though differently, the nicotine

HUNTING THE GORILLA.
An Animal West Africans Say Has
the Soul of a Man.
Gorilla hunting is a distinct sensation
even for the veteran hunter. This ani
mal, which has become confused some
what with fable and fiction, Is a reali
ty and a decidedly unpleasant one to
engage. The west Africans are mortal
ly afraid of Mt, believing that the brute
contains the spirit of a man. They at
tribute to it all sorts of ferocities, like
the carrying off of a human being, who
is pernitted to return after being de
prived of toe and linger nails.
"Skilled hunters have never observed
any of these doings. but they testify to
the brute's strength and ferocity," says
Allen Sangree In Ainslee's. "According
to a French sportsman, a full grown
gorilla can bite through a tree six inch
es thick In order to secure the sap and
twist a gun barrel with the swollen
bunches of muscle that serve for arms.
His roar is terrifying gind can be heard
for a distance of three miles.
"'I shall never forget how the first
one impressed me,' says the French
man, 'for I had a bad attack of shakes.
The woods had been filled some time
with a barking roar, but I saw nothing
until my guide clucked softly and
pointed to a tree alongside which stood
an immense male gorilla. There he re
mained but twelve yards away, boldly
facing us with his huge chest, muscu
lar arms, fiercely glaring deep gray
eyes and a hellish expression, until I
"'At that he dropped to all fours and
came six yards nearer, sitting up to
beat his breasts with his huge fists-a
defiance-so that it sounded like an im
mense drum. His roar was most singu
lar, beginning with a kind of bark and
deepening into a bass roll that literally
resembled thunder. The short hair on
his forehead was twitching, his power
ful fangs showed unpleasantly, and,
feeling he was about to attack and In
cidentally being scared green, I shot
him through the heart. With a groan
something human and yet brutish, he
fell on his face and died quickly, like a
man. He measured 5 feet 9 inches in I
length, his chest was 62 Inches, and his
arms spread 9 feet. I was glad to have
the specihen, but somehow after that
never cared to kill a gorilla unless he
actually menaced me.'"
NOTHING WAS LOST.
An Omission In a Wedding Ceremony
That Didn't Count.
A distinguished officer of the United
States navy once told this story on him
At the time of his marriage he had
been through the civil war and had had
many harrowing experiences aboard
ship, through all of which he kept cour
age and remained as calm as a brave
man should. As the time for the cere
mony came on, however, his calmness
gradually gave way. At the altar, amid
the blaze of -brass buttons and gold
lace marking the full naval wedding,;
the officer was all but stampeded and
what went on there seemed very much
mixed to him. Fearing the excitement
of the moment would temporarily take
him off his feet, the officer had learned
the marriage ceremony letter perfect,
as he thought, and he remembered re
peating the words after the minister in
a mechanical sort of way.
After the ceremony was over and all
was serene again, including the offi
cer's state of mind, the kindly clergy
man came up to him and touched him
on the shoulder.
"Look here, old man," he said, "you
didn't endow your wife with any
"What's that?" asked the bridegroom,
with something of astonishment in his
"Why, I repeated the sentence 'With
all my worldly goods I thee endow sev

would not say it after me."
The bridegroom seemed perturbed for
a moment, and then a beaming light
came into his face.
"Never mind, sir," he said. "She

LUNGS THAT ARE LAZY.
Their Owner:', )Ineit Poorly and
(ntch Cold Eumily.
Fresh air is a free gift, but it is like
most of the gifts of heaven in that we
must do our share of work to benefit
by it. No one would expect to have a
good fire just because a pair of bellows
hung on a nail by the chimney, but this
Is exactly what many people expect of
their lungs, which are really only the
bellows given us by which to keep the
1re of life burning bright and clear
It is not too much to assert that lungs
properly used in a comparatively close
-oom will do more good than lazy lungs
n an open field. This trick of lazy
lungs is a habit, like any other, and
nay be overcome by persistent effort.
Many persons, for example, are afflict
d with a nervous habit of holding the
areath unconsciously. These are the
;eople who, in spite of plenty of time
;pent out of doors, yet catch cold easi
y, digest poorly and are always more
)r less "under the weather" physically.
Many other persons-and they consti
aute the great majority of mankind
reathe ouly with the upper part of the
ungs and although they may breathe
egularly do not draw in sufficient air
t a breath to fill all the lung cells.
When once the pernicious habit of
oor, shallow breathing has been bro
en up, the health undergoes such mark
d improvement, there is such brighten
ng of the spirits and improvement of
be looks, that the luxury of deep
reathing is not likely to be readily
A good way to start the new habit Is
o take deliberately a few minutes at
tated intervals and devote them to
>roper breathing. If this is done sys
ematically, the reformer will find him
elf unconsciously breathing more and
nore, until very soon he is obeying na
ure and really breathing to live.
Besides the gain to the general health
hich comes from the habit of deep
>reathing there is created a reserve
