Golnem Gate Fogs.
The fogs of the Pacitc and especial
ly those on the coast of California,
Oregon and Washington present some
characteristic features of their own.
They are low lying. dense arnd of fre- 4
quent and regular occurrence and have
been the cause directly and indirectly
of a large percentage of marine dis
asters in the vicinity of San Francisco.
Owing to the general movement of tho
air from the sea toward the land and
the climate of the great interior valley.
fog is frequent and well marked. In I
summer the afternoon sea fog varies in
depth from 100 to 1,700 feet, but it
rarely reaches far inland. On some
afternoons the velocity of thcwind at 4
San Francisco rises with almost clock
like regularity to about twenty-two
miles an hour, and a solid wall of fog.

Above the fog level the air is cloud

Saved by Irving's Recital.
Sir Henry Irving. through the real
istic portrayal of the sufferings of a
haunted man by his recital of "Eu
gene Aram," caused one human being
to be saved years of agony and sus
pense. A murder had been committed
in a certain neighborhood. and a man
bad been seen in the vicinity where
the crime was perpetrated. lie hiin
self knew that he was innocent. but
feared to face or run the risk of a trial.
Therefore, although cleverly disguised.
he ventured out only at night. One
night he went to the gallery of a thea
ter where Henry Irving was playinga
and in listening to the recital of "Eu
gene Aram" lost sight of the fact that
Eugene really did the murder. The 4
great actor so vividly imparted the
happy sense of relieved conscience
which follows confession that the fol
lowing day he gave himself up to the I
police. The evidence was not strong
enough to convict, so he was able to
bravely face the world instead ;of
crawling about the earth the most mis
erable of all creatures, a haunted man.
A Torrent of Meteors.
The great shower of stars which
took place on Nov. 13, 1833, and was
seen over the greater part of the Unit
ed States extended over the north At
lantic and from the great lakes to the
West Indies and Central America. An
old paper of that time. describing the
scene as it appeared at the falls of Ni
agara. says, "The awful roar of the
cataract filled the mind of the specta
tor with an infinitely heightened sense
of sublimity when its waters were
lighted up by the glare of the mete
oric torrent in the sky." In southern
Indiana, where the display was fully
as brilliant, many persons were badly
frightened, believing the end of the
world, so often predicted, was at hand.
As the end of the world did not come,
the thirteenth day of the month was
thereafter for several years marked
down as a lucky day in the calendar.
.The Fighting Turk.
- The Turk is a great tighting man,
perhaps the best in the world-that is.
on land, for as a sailor he has never
shone. He is a great tighter because
he is physically a strong man. ..The
Turkish peasantry, from whom the
army Is recruited, have-to work hard:
for a bare living, and there is no
room among them for weaklings. I
Therefore ths Turkish soldier is capa
ble of tremendous feats of endurance
and can live on nothing or nest door
to it. Then he is accustomed to fight
ing almost from babyhood. On theI
frontiers .and in the country districts
of Turkey there is always trouble
Death in battle has no terrors for
him, for by his religion It assures him

Whistier's Tarr commeiTr.
Whistler one afternoon called on. a
young painter of his acquaintance who
did the pretty little sort of things that
are popular. In the course of the con
versation that followed the young art
ist turned to a little head he was
painting and, daintily balancing a
square palette by one corner between
two finger tips, took a fine sable brush
and as daintily began to tickle a piece
of bad drawing into a "sweet expres
"A pleasant art, ours, isn't it,
"Yes," was Whistler's response, "but
what are you doing, Frank?"
"Oh," said the young artist, "I am
painting a replica of a little thing some
one liked because, you know, I can al
ways sell two or three of the same
subject, If it's a taking one."
"Alb!" commented Whistler, "you
must be a genius, Frank, and I. alas,
am like the simple minded hen who,
when asked to do so, protested that
she could not lay the same egg twice!"
A Grave Discussion.
The late Joseph Jefferson and his
sister, Mrs. Cornelia Jackson, famous
as Tilly Slowboy in "The Cricket on
the Hearth," were standing at a studio
window on Beacon street, Boston,
overlooking the Old Granary burying
ground. They had been discussing the
famous persons whose graves were
spread below them, when, breaking a
short interval of silence, Jefferson said
in the most mournful of tones, "Con
nie, my dear, that is the best place for
me, after al,"
With a horrified expression on her
face, as her brother always avoided
grewsome subjects, she asked, "What
do you mean, Joe?"
With the twinkle In his eye that
three generations of the world haye
known, the actor remarked blandly, "I
said 'after all,' Connie."
In a flash his sister retorted, "No,
Joe, dear, that's no place for you.
There are too many deadheads there."
What Hichens Heard.
While still a student of music Rob
ert Hichens wrote many short stories,
verses and songs. In .one year, he
says, he earned over $500 by writing
scores and lyrics for music. One song,
"A Kiss and Goodby," wss sung by
Mime. Patti in. Albert hall, London.
"In the natural pride of my heart,"
Mr. Hichens said with reference to
this occasion, "I took a seat in the
stalls and waited in a fever of excite
I ment to hear how it would go off. It
was received with so much enthusias
tic applause that I was lifted into a
delicious heaven of delight, but was
suddenly tumbled headlong by hear
ing two voices from the seats immedi
ately behind me.
"'What a lovely song that was,' one
"'Yes,' the other grudgingly agreed,
'but what awful rot the words of these
songs always are.'"-Exchange.
Cleaning an Ocean Liner.
Probably few people are aware that
during the -few hours a great ocean
liner remains in dock she is cleaned
thoroughly inside and out. The hull
is repainted, the funnels scraped and
cleaned and every piece of exposed
metal polished. Meanwhile all carpets
are taken up and beaten, the floors
scrubbed and repainted and tables re
polished, chairs regilded and stained,
in every part of the ship. On the great
boats there are more than 30,000
pieces of linen to be counted, sorted,
prepared and laundered. Then there
are 15,000 pieces of silverware, 25,000
pieces of glassware, some 00,000 dish
es, plates, cups, saucers, etc. As soon
as a piece shows signs of wear it is
discarded and replaced, and all this
work has to be done in a few hours.
Vegetables and Character.
A Paris contemporary states that a
well known doctor read a paper before
a meeting of medical men on the In
fuence of vegetables upon the charac
ter, the brain and the senses. Accord
ing to the doctor, the potato develops
an evenness of temper and eannness of
thought. The carrot acts as a stimu
lant to the character and is recomn
mended for biliousness and to peevish
or jealous persons. Spinach develops
ambitious dreams and energy. Sorrel,
despite its acidity, induces sadness and
provokes nightmare. All workers
should eat white haricots.--London
'' A Thrifty Spouse.
A man whose illness threatened to
develop into typhoid was taken to the
hospitaL. Instead of growing worse he
improved, and at the end of the fourth
Sday, when his wife visited him, he
asked to be taken home.
"But you have paid for a week," re
plied his thrifty spouse- "They won't
Srefund the money. You had better stay
'your week out."--New York Herald.
Proving His Own Medicine.
"That man Buffers was neatly pun
