Late at night. while the ganes were
running high. a violent storm broke
suddenly upon the sea. When the
wind struck the Vigilancia a rudder
was broken and she whirled round
and round and then dipped down into
the hollow of a mighty wave. Th
shock was unexpected. and in a mo
ment the soldiers were experiencing all
of the horrors of a storm at sea: The
negroes grabbed up the dice and loose
change and huddled together like cat
tle, some of them i'orring and others
too frightened to utter a sound.
The storm raged for an hour. the
soldiers thinking that every moment
would be the last. Fortunately there
was a negro preacher on board. the
Rev. John L. Waller. It was for him
to rise to the occasion. He gathered
a crowd of negroes around him and
"Brethren, the Lord sent this storm
on the heads of sinful crap shooters.
If we want to be saved, let us pray."
Then he dropped down on his knees
and his voice was heard praying above
the noise of the storm.
The soldiers joined with the preach
er in his prayer. In a short time lam

be heard on every hand. It was a re

wrong. Brethren, the dice must go
into the sea:"
The suggestion had only to be made.
The dice were tossed into the angry
waters, about 500 pairs. Some of the
negroes also threw in the money which
they had won with the dice. In half

Shortly after the soldiers landed in
Cuba there was a pay day. Then it
was that a backslider tried to borrow
some dice, but not a single pair could
be found -in the regiment. They had
all been consigned to the sea.
- This was a condition that could not
last. An ingenious negro soldier stole
an ivory billiard ball from a Cuban
pool hall and whittled out a pair of
dice. He sold them for $12.

Knowing the Arab's love of an Eng

The Philosopher's Famous Experlifle
as Described by 4imself.
The famous kite experiment Is de
,cribed by Franklin in a letter dated
Oct. 19, 1752: "Make a small cross of
light sticks of cedar, the arms so long
as to reach to the four corners of a
large. tiNu silk handkerchief when ex
tended. Tie the corners of the hand
kerchief to the extremities of the cross,
so you have the body of a kite, which.
being properly .accommodated with a
tall, loop and string, will rise in the
air like those made of paper, but be
Ing made of silk is better fitted to bear
the wet and wind of a thunder gust
without tearing. To the top of the up
right stick of the cross is to be fixed a
very sharp gointed wire rising a foot
or more above the wood. TO the end
of the twine next the hand is to be
tied a silk ribbon, and where the sHk
and twine join a key may be fastened.
This kite is to be raised when a thun
der gust appears to be coming on, and
the person who holds the string must
stand within a door or window or un
der some cover, so that the silk ribbon
may not be wet, and care must be tak
en that the twine does not touch the
frame of the door or window. As soon
as the thunderclouds come over the
kite the pointed wire will draw the
electric fire from them, and the kite,
with all the twine, will be electrified
and stand out every way and be at
tracted by an approaching finger. And
when the rain has wet the kite and
twine you will find the electric fire
stream out plentifully from the key on
the approach of your knuckle."
OLD TIME THEATERS.
The Way House and Stage Were
Lighted In Garrick's Time.
It must have often struck people
when reading of the performances In
the eighteenth century how-it was that
the lightning was contrived. The pow
er of oil lamps was limited enough.
Theaters like Drury Lane and Covent
Garden were of enormous size. There
were no footlights, at least until about
the middle of the eighteenth century,
and they were the humble "floats," dim
enough. Yet there was ample light to
observe expression and play of fea
tures. so necessary in interpreting the
fine old comedies of character. Now
adays the stage is one blaze. It is lit
erally bathed and suffused in light
There are no shadoWs, and yet it might
be said the amount of necessary light
is no more than there used to be and
Is not nearly as satisfactory. How was
In the theaters of Garrick and earlier
days the stage was really lit by four
great chandeliers, which hung directly
over the heads of the actors from the
arch of the proscenium and just out
side the curtain. When the play was
over, these were lowered slowly, a'sig
al for the audience to depart. These
chandeliers furnished a goodly amount
of light on a circular zone immediately
below them. The actors' faces and fig
ures were lit in the natural way, as the
sun would light them,'but the rest of
the stage was comparatively dark or

THE KING OF' ANIMALS.
Trappers and Skin Experts'dive This
Title to the Black Fox.
In the estimation of trappers and
voyaeurs of eastern North America
as well as in the eyes of the vary rich
nobility of Russia and Siberia there is
only one king of' beasts, and the name
of this beast is the big and gadiantly
shining black fox, whIch roifms over
the cold and barren hills that stretch
from east of the Penobscot river in
Maine. through New Brunswick and
Nova Scotia and..skipping the mouth
of the St. Lawrence river, extend in

and Laurentian formations which sur

Those who seek the choicest and
most expengive furs known to man
and who will pay any price for what
they want must go to the bleak coast
line of eastern North America for
what they want and may have to wait
for years to secure pelts that will
match perfectly with other skins
which are to go toward making up a
set, for. the black for of North Amern
a-le reynard noir of the French
hunters - wears the most valuable
overcoat of any animal on earth.
As a rule, about five perfect pelts
from black foxes are captured every
year, and of these three are bought by
the great Hudson Bay Fur company
or its 'tributary associations. Though
Maine alone furnishes more than 70,000
foskins every year and though near
ly 5,000 active men spend most of the
winter in trapping and poisoning foxes
and other animals for their furs, only
twice in the run of twelve months
are the combined efforts of these indi
vidual hunters able to secure a black
In no way except in color does the
black fox differ from its congener, the
red fox, whose pelt sells for $3.50, or
from the gray fox, whose overcoat is
valued at from $150 to $400. but when
ever a hunter can secure a black fox
and remove its skin without marring
the fur he is as sure of receiving from
$800 to $1,500 for his trophy as if he
had the money in his hand. Not only
is every black fox pelt bought as soon
as taken, but a dozen Russian noble
men have paid agents traveling in
North America all through the winter,

Heartburn and Sour Stomach Quickly Reliev
ed and Permanently Cured by Rydale's
Heartburn and Sour Stomach are
caused by an acid or sour condition- of
the stomach. Quick relief is obtained
from these distressing symptoms of
indigestion by taking one or two tablets
when needed. Taken regularly after
meals they tone and strenghten the
stomach and enable it to digest the
food and prevent fermentation, which
is the cause of heartburn and sour

The Effect Produced When One Is Hit
by a Bullet.
A New York surgeon who saw serv
ice in/Cuba and the Philippines as a
volunteer in his profession was discuss
ing the subject of bullet wounds when
he was asked, "What makes a man die
when he's bit by a bullet?"
"There are three reasons," he replied
s.-"shock, hemorrhage and blood poi
soning. A bullet cuts its way through
skin, muscle, nerve, bone an&T artery.
Then the wounded man falls to the
ground. That's nature's little plan,
you know, for getting him on his back
and relieving the heart of the heavy
wdrk of forcing blood against gravity
into the brain."
"What happens when he gets a bul
let through his brain?"
"Dies generally. If the bullet Is -a
Mauser, however, and if its velocity
be great enough, It is quite apt to pass
clear through the skull, piercing the.
bone plate on one side, traversing the
intervening brain and breaking out
through the other side without killing.
I attended a number of such cases dur
ing the war in Cuba.
"You see, if these bullets are travel
ing at a high rate of speed they cut
through bone as clearly as does a tre
phine saw, leave no splinters In their
wake, destroy very little tissue and cut
their way zeatly through the side. In
fact, It Is an injury and a surgical op
eration all in one."
"Why are lung wounds so serious?'
the surgeon was next asked. "Is the
brain not as vital as the lungs?"
"Quite. But when a man is shot
through the lungs a~ number of big
blood vessels are cut, and he dies from
loss of blood. Or the blood pours into
the fine network of the lungs and the
victim. dies of pneumonia, just as he
would do if he caught a chill. As .a
matter of faae,- wound -diseases, in the
majority of instances, are merely well
known diseases suddenly' and violently
"Shoot a man through the head, and
if he outlives the shock he dies as he
would do from apoplexy or inflmma
tion of the brain. Shoot -him through
the heart, and he dies from the same
pathological cause as if he had rup
tured aneurism of the heart. If it Is an
abdominal wound, the man would plob
ably die of peritonitis, resulting from
the release of the stomach contents
into the cavity. In such a case death
would be due to the same cause as In
some cases of ulcer in the stomach.
Such a patient would die from blood

- When the Hon.. Beverly Tucker, min
ister to the court of St. James, was
presented to Queen Victoria she indi
cated that he be seated by that slight
motion of her plump hand which -all
England obeyed. Tucker was portly
and heavy, and the only available-chair
was fragile and small. He appeared
not to notice the invitation. A moment

other American ever enjoyed with her

"Why, I should break both my back
and your majesty's chair if I attempt
