An Awkward Player.
In 10S Zing James published his
famaous "Book of Sports" and, thinking
to render the Presbyterian form of
worship less rigid, ordered that cer
tain of the sports therein commended
should be played in the several church
yr rds every Sunday at the close of
divine service. John Ross, a minister
of Blairgc'wrie, adopted a novel method
of withstanding the royal ordinance.
He was a strong, athlezic man and
seemed much interested in the recrea
tions enjoined by the monarch. Foot
ball was selected by the parishioners
of Blairgowric from the list of "Sun
day games." When the services of the
church were completed Mr. Ross ap
peared among his people in the church
yard and joined them in their sport.
None of the assemblage kicked more
eagerly at the football than did the
reverend incumbent. But constant
misfortune seemed to attend him. E7
cry kick missed the ball'and fell heavi
ly on the ankles of those who stood
near. Apologies were promptly ten
dered and, of course, received, though
every Sunday many of the parishion
ers returned home halting. Finally it
was agreed that on account of the
minister's awkwardness the games
should be abandoned. Thus the in
genious divine gained his end and pre
vented compliazice with the obnoxious

How Mayne Reid Won His Bride.
It was through his novel, "The Scalp
Hunters," that Captain Mayne Reid
won a bride. He was thirty years old
when he met a damsel of thirteen, with
whom he at once fell in love. The
child took no notice of him, but he
gave her the story to read. Two years
later the young lady was at a public
meeting where Captain. Reid spoke on
behalf of the Polish refugees. "An
electric thrill seemed to pass through
me as he entered the rooih," she said
afterward,,and when the meeting was
over she went up to him. "I leave for
London on the next train," he said hur
riedly. "Please send me your ad
dress." "I do not know where," she
replied, with some embarrassment. He
instantly handed out his card and was
gone. A formal. little note followed:
"Dear Captain Reid-As you asked me
to send you my address, I do so." By.
return of post came the answer, "Only
say that you love me and I will be
with you at once," and then the reply.I
"I think I do love you."
In his declining years the poet Whit
tier was extremely absentminded. He
attended a church meeting where thereF
were a large number of persons. As
his presence was known, it was deemed

Their fronded palms in air;

Great applause greeted the quotation.

In Modern Egypt.
Douglas Sloden's book on Egypt
contains some curious anecdotes. For
instance: "My doctor was called to see
an Egyptian who was in a very low
state. 'What Is the matter?' he asked.
'I think it is only depression. I have
been a fool and lost a law case. T
would not backsheesh the other man ;
lawyer, and he backsheeshed mine.'
Later on when another Egyptian told
my friend that he had won a law case
my friend said, 'I suppose you back
sheeshed the other man's lawyer?'
The Egyptian gave a beautiful smile
and said, 'How did you know?"'
And again: "I was at Luxor when
they were recruiting for the army. If
a young man was found to be phys
ically fit his relations were plunged in
grief. Professional mourners were
hired to squat outside the police sta
tion where the recruiting took place,
yelling and weeping. If, on the other
hand, he was rejected as undersized
or a weakling or tainted with a loath
some disease, pis relations and friends
flew to him rejoicing and kissed him
and hung on his neck."

Origin of Old Glory.
In the reminiscences of Lord Ronald
Gower is found a story of the origin of
the stars and stripes.
The "star spangled banner" of the
American republic had its origin from
an old brass on the floor of an ancient
church in Northamptonshire. The brass
covers the tomb of one Robert Wash
ington and is dated 1G22. On it ap
pears the Washington coat of arms,
consisting of three stars, with bars or
stripes beneath them. On the first day
of the new year, 1776, the thirteen
united colonies raised a standard at
This introduced the stripes of the
present, but retained the crosses of St.
George and St. Andrew on a b'ue
ground in the, borier. In 1777 uae
crosses were replaced by stars. as the
Declaration of Independence rendered
the retention of the English element
unnecessary and inconvenient. In thus
adopting the arms of his ancestors as
his own distinctive badge Washington
no doubt intended the flag merely as a
private signal for his own personal fol
lowing, but it was at once adopted as
a national emblem. Probably there is
not another case in the world's history
in which the private arms of an ob
scure family have attained such world
wide eminence and repute.

A Purse For the Bride.
Some brides may be inclined to re
gret that the old marriage custom of
the dow purse has fallen into disuse.
It was the custom of the bridegroom
to fill a purse with a goodly sum of
money and present It to the bride on
the wedding day as the price of the,
purchase of her person. It sounds like
slavery, like the buying of goods and
chattels, yet the bride had a nice lit
tle sum of money for her own use.
Some of the oldest inhabitants of
Cumberland may remember a similar
custom in that county. The bride
groom provided himself with a num
ber of gold and silver pieces, and at
the words "with all my worldly goods
I thee endow" he handed the clergy
man his fee and poured the other
coins inito a handkerchief held out for
that purpose by the bride. In other
places, again, the bride had the right
to ask her husband for a gift of money
or property on the day after the wed
ding, and he was bound in honor to
grant the request.--London Answers.
Sixty Kinds of Bananas.
To most persons in the temperate
zoes a banana is a banana. But the
truth is that there are over sixty
known varieties of the fruit, with as
great or great'er variation in character
as in the different kinds of apples.
Hawaii is said to have something over
forty distinct varieties of the fruit,
most of which have been introduced
by the whites. Some of these are of
extremely delicate and delicious flavor,
while other kinds are used, if at all,
only when cooked in various ways.

Cooking With Sunlight.
Sun cooking-roasting and boiling by
sunlight instead of coal or gas-has
been going on for 300 years. There
are sun s-tres that roast a sirloin or
boil a -;, .. to perfection. They are
only used, however, by scientists. A
sun stove consists mainly of a mirror
a spherical mirror on a joint. There
is also a reflector. The place fer pot
or plate is so situated that the mirror's
rays can be focused on it accurately.
A German, Baron Tchernhausen, was
the first sun cook. He began in 1687
to boil water, and in 1688 he had very
good success at baking eggs. Sir John
Herschel and Buffton are other fa
mous names associated with sun cook
ing. In California various sun cooks
have boiled a gallon of water in twen
ty minutes, roasted meat in two hours
and poached eggs in fifteen minutes
quite as- good time as the ordinary fire
makes. An odd thing about meat
roasted by sun rays is that it has an
unpleasant taste. This is avoided by
the insertion of a plate of yellow glass
between meat and mirror. In all solar
stoves the sheet of yellow glass fg
Queer English Laws.
"No statute law of England ever can
be obsolete," a legal journal says.
"Once enacted, it continues in binding
force until repealed."
If such be really the case, there
ought to be some lively times ahead
for several classes of the community.
For instance, what will builders have
to say to the act which penalizes any
person who erects a house without at
taching -to it at least four acres of
land? This was one of "good Queen
Bess'" laws, and it has most certainly
never been repealed.
By another unrepealed statute, which
dates back to the first year of King
James I., it is enacted that not more
than a penny may be charged for a
quart of the best old ale nor more than
a halfpenny for a like quantity of
small beer. The penalty for each in
fraction of the act is 20 shifnings, so
that if it were rigidly enforced it
would not need, apparently, a licensing
bill to ruin the brewers. Then, again,
a Catholic owning a horse is still legal
ly obliged to sell it for J5 to anybody
who chooses to offer that sum for it.
The First Mourning Paper.
The oldest known letter written or
black edged note paper as a sign of
mourning appears to be one dated Jan
5, 1683. In Addison's comedy of "The
Drummer," 1715, reference is made tc
the fashion in the words, "My lady's
mourning paper that is blacked at the
edges." A few years later Allan Ram,
say, who died in 1758. speaks in one
of his poems of "the- sable bordered
sheet" as a messenger of sorrow.
Mann, writing from Italy to Horace
Walpole in 1745, says that it was uni
versally used in Florence at that time
The superior elegance of this Italiat
note paper, with its narrow margin ol
black, explains its ready acceptance ir
this country. where it superseded tb
quarto sheet with a black border some
times a quarter of an inch wide. II
this way it probably gave an impetu,
to the fashion. But it is a mistake t(
suppose, as some have done, that the
fashion was introduced from Italy.
