Translated Into Vernacular.
"Cap'n" Jothain Slow had strong ob
jections to what he called "the new
minister's high talk." Since his set
tlement over the Clamtown parish
Cap'n Jotham bad been heard to say
that "church was for them that needed
it," and his conduct seemed to imply
that he was not of that number.
Cap'n Jotham's own language was of
a primitive and unadorned variety, and
nothing pleased him more than a
chance to translate the minister's re
marks to Cap'n Wllson' Pegg, the best
Clamtown story teller. Cap'n Pegg
was deaf, and the minister's voice of
ten failed to reach him.
One night at a neighborhood gather
ing Cap'n Pegg in the course of a vivid
narrative had referred to "the big fire."
"Was it the consensus of opinion."
said the minister in a mild and inef
fectual tone, "that the conflagration
was the result of some accident or the
work of an incendiary?"
"Hey?" said Cap'n Pegg, staring
dully at the minister and then turning
to his faithful friend for light,
"What he wants to know," called
Cap'n Slow in his shrillest tone, "is
whether the big fire was sot or ketch
Breeding Insects For Wa.

In their birthplace .and have to be. car
ried 400 miles in gourds by porters
traveling only by night There are
thousands of insects in the gourds -and
wrapped in leaves picked from the
wood oil tree. His journey ended, the
porter immediately goes to his master
and delivers his burden of gourds. At
once the leafy bags are tied to the
branches of the ash trees, which are
only five or six feet high. By Sept- 1
the trees look as if covered with snow.
It is a snow, however, not amenable to
the temperatures which wipe out ordi
nary snow. The branches are then cut
off, and their quarter of an inch of
pure white coating is scraped off. The
wax is heated, strained and turned
into molds to be used for lighting, fur
niture polish and imparting gloss to
silk.-St. James' Gazette.
Thiis Lines on Sardine Boxes.
If you are fond of sardines, here is
something that will be useful for you
to know. On nearly every box con
taining these delicacies will be found
two parallel lines cut in the top. The
dismnce between the lines denotes the
size of the fish, whether those in the
tin are small, medium or large. Of
course the smaller the sardines the
better is their flavor, and therefore fthe
-boxes with the lines close together con
tain the finest fish. Some dishonest
firms are very fond of selling pllchards
to their customers and calling them
sardines, but If you make up your mind
never to buy a box unless .it has the
two closely drawn lines you may be
certain of obtaining the article you
asked for.-London Standard.

A Story of Sam Houston.
There is a story about General Sam
Houston of Texas and a practicing
physician who did not like the old gen

politically. One day after a hdated po
litical discussion the physician said,
"General, I like you well enough social
ly, but plitically I would not believe
you on earth." "I would believe you,
doctor," was the quiet reply of the gen
eral. "Then, sir," vehemently exclaim
ed the doctor, "you have a much bet
ter opinion of me than I have of you."
"Not a better opinion, doctor, but I
simply have a little more politeness
than you have."
."Now you're your own master," said~
the wise father, "you must begin to
build up a reputation for yourself."
"All right governor." replied the

When Animals Go Bad.
An animal trainer says that "no man
living knows all about animals or
more than a very little about them.
Some who are dead thought they
knew. That is the reason they are
dead. Only those who realize their
Ignorance and supplement it with un
tiring watchfulness last long at this
queer business that I'm in.
"Sooner or later most afimals of the
cat kind become utterly intractable
and remain so. 'Going bad' is the
professional term for this. Rarely do
they return to their old amenable
ways. Henceforth they are of no use
as performers and are relegated to the
exhibition cages, for any man entering
the cage of a lion or tiger that has
gone bad is instantly attacked. This
is one of the terrors of the trade.
Symptoms of the change of heart are
apparent enough sometimes, particu
larly in animals which are growing old.
Occasionally, however, some young
beast, formerly as obedient as you
could wish, will turn murderous with
out cause or warning. If her trainer
gets out alive he is lucky. If he ever
enters her cage again he's a fool."
The Noisy Birds of the Night.
All the night birds are noisy. They
cannot consort with one another in
happy companies, as do the warblers
and thrashes and finches, and sing and
whisper, but must call lo.udly and long
to one another in the darkness. On
coasts where petrels and certain other
night hunting sea birds abound, all
day sitting on their eggs or hiding in
burrows, you will hear no sound from
morning till night. but after dark the
air is filled with shrill cries. The loud,
reiterated calling of the southern
chuck-will's-widow and of its northern
cousin is familiar. A whippoorwill
will sound its cry several hundred
times in succession without a pause.
-Owls hoot or utter a harsh sort of
laughter, rarely pleasant to listen to,
and night herons and bitterns squawk
and boom. Sweet songs occasionally
heard in the darkness are those of
wakeful day birds, as the nightingale
or our own oven bird.-Ernest Ingersoll

Carlyle's Courteous Side.
In the "Retrospects" of Professor
William Knight of the University of
St Andrews are some Interesting anec
dotes. Among these is a bit from a let
ter by Dr. Maclagan, who attended
Thomas Carlyle during Carlyle's -last
years: "My personal experience of' Car
lyle was this: He wras the most courte
ous man I ever met Never once did
that old man fail to rise up to receive
me nor allow -me to leave his room
without walking to the door with me
while he had strength to do so. After
death all the ruggedness and the wrin
kles disappeared from his face. But
for the beard it was like that of a wo
man,so delicate and beautifully mold
