Valuable time is lost in fruitless efforts to heal
the sore with washes and salves, because the germs of Cancer that are multi

BLINDING A SHARK.
How a Pearl Diver Escaped a Vora
cious Man Eater.
A successful diver must possess great
courage and nerves of steel. Such a
man connected with a large wrecking
company was visiting some years ago
the pearl fisheries In the gulf of Cali
fornia, where sharks abounded. On
one of his trips in quest of the pearl
oyster he had a narrow escape from a
He had been instructed never to stir
from the bottom until he had looked up
and around. Fortunately he heeded the
advice. Having filled his bag he glanced
quickly about and caught sight of a
huge shovel nosed shark watching him.
In an emergency men think fast. Near
the diver was a large rock. He moved
quickly to the other side of It, hoping
to dodge the ferocious monster, but the
maneuver did not work. The shark
watched every movement, changing his
position by a slight motion of his pow
Time was precious, and the diver
conceived the idea of blinding the
shark by stirring up the mud. Under
cover of that he might escape. He
worked for dear life and had the water
thick with mud in less than half a min
Slipping around the rock again, he
rose to the surface, having barely
strength enough to reach the side of
the boat, and was hauled on board just
as the voracious man eater made a
rush for him.
Bring the Ends Together.
A certain colonel somewhere In the
south (no matter where) was in the
habit of telling yarns and greatly ex
aggerating. He had a negro servant
who corroborated everything his mas
ter told. One day the colonel had
some gentlemen to dinner, and they
were enjoying some fine venison very
much. The colonel said: "Yes, I ,went
hunting the other day and saw a fine
buck. I took a good sight at him. and
shot him through the head, and the
bullet ;went through his hind leg."
The gentlemen looked at each other
a little mystified. The negro scratched
his head and at last said, "Yes, Indeed,
gemmen; just as massa raised the gun
to shoot de buck he raise his hind leg
and scratch his ear, and the bullet
went through the head and right
through de hind leg." The gentlemen
looked more satisfied.
After the guests had gone the negro
said to his master, "Gorry mighty, mas
sa, next time you tell one of dem yarns
do get the ends closter togedder. I
had hard work to make both ends
meet."-New Orleans Times-Democrat.
EVADING THE LAW.
The Pictures of Flying Birds In a
According to one of the tenets of the
Mohammedan religion, it is a sin to
make a picture of any living thing. The
elaborate decorations of the palaces
and mosques of the east are almost ex
elusively made up of ingeniously inter
laced geometric designs, arabesques or
flowers, interinixed with sentences of
There is a belief among M1ussulmans
that at the day of judgment Allah will
demand that the artist who has made
the Image of a living thing shall endow
that image with life and that, falling to
do this, the artist will be sent to perdi
tion for his sin.
A gentleman who visited a mosque In
Algiers found that the tiles with which
the building Is decorated, which are
very old and beautiful, are adorned
with flights of birds. He expressed sur
prise at this and asked If the command
against such representation were a
"Oh, no," answered the pious Alge

"But they are painted as if flying
across the tiles," the other said In some
"Yes," the Mussulman replied, "but
do you not see that about the neck of
each there is a fine black line? That Is
to show that the artist painted only
dead birds, and the command of the
Koran Is not violated."
Fatckwork of Pictures.
Of all the quaint and varied sights
shown to the pnasing stranger, sayis
Navy and Army, perhaps there is none
more attractive than the officers' quar
ters in the main guard of the citadel of
Valetta. Long ago some officer, find
ing the time hang heavy on his hands
and having in him besides a turn for
sketching, bethought him to draw upon
the bare yellow washed wall of his un
garnished room a picture in colors,
The next officer probably thought he
could do as well or better, and he, too,
left his handiwork upon the walls, and
as years rolled by there grew up a
custom, now firmly established, for ev

ing rpiain guard duty to leave behind a
remembrance of itself In the shape of a
sketch on the walls In pencil, chalk or
paint. Thus now, Instead of plain, un
lovely walls, exists this quaint Irregu
lar patchwork of pictures, well known
throughout the services and to those
who use this highway to the east.

THE RICE TABLE.
A Distinctive and Remarkable Meal
Served In Java.
"At 1 o'clock," says a correspondent
of the Kansas City Star, "every hotel
in Java serves a most distinctive and
remarkable meal called the rice table
(rljst-tafel). A large, flat, bowl shaped
dish Is placed in front of you, which
you fill with beautiful, white, flaky
rice, borne about in dishes holding fully
a quarter of a bushel. Then comes a
seemingly never ending stream of na
tives, each bearing a dish containing
some different meat, vegetable or con
diment, from which you take a small
portion and place it on top of the rice.
"After you have had a little of every
thing you mince It up with a knife and
fork and mix It well with the rice and
then fall to with a large spoon. A list
of the side dishes, with an ordinary
rice table, would read something like
this: Fried eggs, omelet, fried chicken,
broiled chicken, stewed chicken, beef
steak, sausage, fish, fritters, a mixture
of vegetables stewed with a mustard
dressing, raw cucumbers, liver and ten
or twelve different spices and relishes,
Many a stout Dutchman have we
seen take a liberal helping from each
dish in addition to almost a quart of
rice for a background of 'table.' Natu
rally every one must go to sleep Imme
diately after such a meal, and all busi
ness Is suspended for several hours.
The dinner in the evening at 8 o'clock
is a very simple meal."

In his old age he often took fifty cups

coffee that he used to assert that the

quantity of that stimulant which he
drank. Cowper pays a tribute to tea in
the "Task" when he says "the cup that
cheers, but not inebriates." He was
very fond of the Chinese beverage.
But the king of tea drinkers was Sam

Remarkable Daring and Coolness In

The architect Viollet le Due was one
day on the Schwarzenberg glacier at
a height of about 9.000 feet, accompa

marched in front. The two men were
attached to each other by a rope, as is
usual in Alpine mountaineering.

The Statues of Parils.
No city in the world has so many
statues and monuments as Paris, and
every day sees a new project for a new
statue or bust It Is curious to note In
this connection that a large proportion
of the famous men honored in this way
came to their end by violence In some
form or other. Many of them died on
the scaffold, and a stroll through the
Paris streets may give the philosopher
food for reflection on the mutability of
human judgment Danton and La
voisler were guillotined, Jeanne d'Arc
and Etlenne Delet were burned at the

Etenne Marcel was also assassinated,
Marshal Ney was shot, Condorcet com

might be mentioned.
A Badly Turned Phrase.
"It Is queer," says a clergyman of
New York city, "what a liking young
students have for long words and Latin
quotations and what a dread possesses
them of appearing conventional. I once
knew a promising candidate who was
given charge of a funeral In the ab
sence of the pastor of the church. He
knew It was customary for-the minis
ter to announce after the sermon that
those who wished should step up to
view the reraains, but he thought this
was too hackneyed a phrase, and he
said instead, 'The congregation will
now pass around the bier.' "-New York
The Wrong Room.
"While spending a vacation at Bed
ford Springs, Pa., some years ago,"
said a Baltimore lawyer the other day,
"I went late one night to my room, as
[ supposed, unlocked the door and was
startled by a .woman's screams. I re
alized at once that I had got Into the
rong room. You may be sure I did
not waste any time getting out into
the corridor, locking the door again
and entering my room, .which happen
ed to be the next one.
"While I was doing this the woman
continued screaming, alarming the
whole hotel. A crowd soon gathered,
and when the woman could be per
suaded to open the door she declared
there was a man In her room. Of
course no Intruder was found, and, as
the door was locked when the crowd
gathered, the lady was told that she
must have had a nightmare and Imag
ined she saw a man in her room. I
kept quiet, and every one else in the
hotel was convinced that the lady's im
agination had worked upon her fears."
Popular Weather Notions.
How often do we hear the remark.
"We shall have rain, the atmosphere
s so heavy." The reverse Is true.
When one sees smoke hanging from a
chimney, with a tendency to sink to
the ground, It indicates that the at
mosphere is light-in fact, too light to
float the smoke. When .the smoke
rises from the chimney, it indicates a
heavy atmosphere. A column of smoke
is not a bad barometer, for a barometer
simply records the pressure of the at
mosphere. When the atmosphere Is
light and the smoke settles, the pres
sure on the mercury is light, and the
column falls, Indicating storm. When
the atmosphere Is heavy and the smoke
rises, the pressure Is greater and the
column rises, Indicating fair weather.
