THE FIRST CHOICE
u
It Was Right Too D cause the Bravest
Aro tho Tcnderest
Some years ngo tho excursion Ptoniu
er returning from Alaska to Seattle
dislocated its inopeller in n dreary
portion of tho Inner passage ami came
to a forced stop For two days the
vessels engineers and machinists la
bored to repair the break but without
success Two of tbo boats were man
ned and dispatched for aid to Vic
toria 800 miles away In the mean
time It was discovered that the ships
stores were not abundant Alarm bred
In the minds of pessimistic passer
gers and the contagion spread Star
ration might assail the vessel before
help arrived
A former California official took it
L on himself to reassure his timid com
panions but his effort was not per
fectly adapted to raise drooping splr
its In fact his closing sentences bu
added to the gloom Let Us be brave
bo said If the worst comes and that
dread necessity which in such misad
ventures has met others must be faced
by us let us remember that It Is good
to die that our friends may live The
one or more that may be sacrificed
will be consoled by that thought
There was a moments silence awful
In its Intensity then a cheerful volro
was heard You should be taken
first Governor Booth You know the
bravest arc the tenderest And even
the terror stricken smiled once more

fAPA CLOTH
Attire of the Native Hawaiians Before
Civilization Arrived
The paper mulberry tree Brousso
netla pap rifera is the source of the
famous taps cloth of the Polynesian
Islands This is a natural tissue and is
derived from the Inner bark and after
being torn off In strips Is scraped with
bells and beaten with a mallet until It
resembles a soft flexible paper The
individual strips are united by over
lapping tho edges and beating the
fibers together until large pieces of the
tissue are formed
It Is said that before Hawaii was
swept with the wave of civilization
men and women were dressed in this
natural bark cloth taps or kapa
The dress of the women consists of I
the pau or wrapper composed of I
ive thicknesses of tapa about four
yards In length by three In width
passed several times around the waist
and extending below the knee The
dress of the men was the malo or
girdle about a foot in width and sev
eral yards long A kikel or mantle
six feet square was sometimes worn
by both sexes In former years these
natural cloths were sometimes bleach
ed to snowy whiteness or were dyed In
colors and even printed or ornamente
usually In checks or squaresEx

A Practical Demonstration
The best way to study nature Is to
go right to it
I suppose so
Ob I know it I was once disposed
to doubt the Industry of the ant of
Which so much Is said1
And you learned better
I did I had a controversy with a
naturalist over the question and I
thought I had him beaten until he gave
me a demonstration
Took you out and showed you the
ants at work did be
Well not exactly that but he took
me along on one of his scientific expe
ditions and then maliciously pitched
my tent over an ant hill By the time
I discovered what was happening the
conviction was forced upon me that
ants are really and truly Industrious
They are small but they made me
move and some of them went right
along with us to the next camping

AN UNCANNY BREEZE
It Slows From a Scar In the Forehead
of a Famous Medium
No ono who has seen the effects of I
a seance upon the Italian medium
Eusapla PallHdlno could doubt Its
genuine character as far as the me
dium Is coticcriicd says a writer In
McClures At the conclusion ota
seance she Is faint dizzy nauseated
extremely weak and remcmbors little
that has occurred during the seance
while her face becomes deeply lined
greenish yellow in color and appears
fo be shrunk almost to half Its nat
ural size
uralslzelCorlover
Moreover many abnormal occur
rences take place quite apart from tho
phenomena themselves Thus during
one seance Professor Morsclll of Genoa
normally right handed became left
handed while Kusupia herself normal
ly left handed became right handed
Another remarkable phenomenon I
frequently seen is this There Is a
scar on Eusaplas forehead on the left
side about an inch long from which
Issues during and after a eeahco n I
mysterious cold breeze cliiljirJy perdep
tlblo to the hands When tested by
a thermometer it has caused a fall of
3 or 4 degrees
Immediately over this scar there Is
ono white lock of lair The rest ot
her hair IS grayish brolsvn in color
After one seance I examined this fa
mous scafrgoUohlng It vlta tny fin
gers and fptpjctly felt tlib cold
breeze which Vhs perceptible to all
of us I
usWe
We covered the mediums mouth
and nose with our bands to prevent
her from blowing and held our own
breath The breeze was still percepti 1
ble
Finally In order to test the hypoth
esis of hallucination we held to her
forehead a small tissue paper flag
about two or three inches squarer hav
ing covered her mouth and nose as
before and bring careful not to
breathe upon It ourselves The result
was that the flag was blown out from
ber head several times strongly and
finally so forcibly that It wrapped
Itself completely around the flagstaff
supporting it Thus tho objective na
ture of this cold breeze was satisfac
torily demonstrated

Clothes of English Workmen
WorkmenI
I 1 saw great numbers workingmen
among the mills and elsewhere in
England but outside of railroad quar
ters in London I did not see a single
man wearing overalls England is a
cold country and they want warm
clothes T did see quantities of good
woolen breeches made from three
quarter cloth weighing from ten to
twelve ounces selling at retail from
2s Cd to 3s Gd a garment less than
the price at which an eight ounce cot
ton cloth in overalls would cost a work
ingman in America and I was told
that woolen clothes were worn linker
sally by the workingraen In England
In traveling through the country the
great flocks of sheep Indicated the
source o f this very cheap supply and
while the cost of cotton garments for
both men and women appears to be
about the same as In America the cost
of the woolen garments appeared to be
about onehalf Textile Manufactur

Burglar Proof Plate Glass
Consul William Bardell has reported
from Rlieims that a French inventor
has come out with a new burglar proof
plate glass absolutely transparent at
a thickness of one inch and yet which
will resist a machinists hammer long
enough for a sleepy copper a block
away to run up and Interfere Jacket
ed revolver bullets may be fired
against the plate without breaking
through In one test n heavy piece of
cast iron was hurled against the glass
breaking through to the extent of only
two or three square inches Ordinary
plate glass used in America may have
three or four square feet smashed
through with a common brick carried
in a hand bag or wrapped up as a
parrer parcel Practically the seven
eighths inch to one inch glass is bur
glar proof until such time as the en
terprising felon discovers some effec
tive substitute for the brick
