HMpM of Orlaf la Madras,
In Madras, after the death of 41 father,
the ions of the deceased must be shaved
from head to foot as a sign f their
grief, no part of their body escaping the
cleansing blade. I have been somewhat
amused to sea a sorrow stricken son fol
lowed patiently about by the barber till
he baa been sufficiently calmed to sub
mit to the operation. No sooner is the
pyre fired and the body hidden from
sight by a liberal plastering of mud, in
which it burns, than the bereaved seeks
out a pleasant, shady spot, and the tedi
ous shaving commences, first, the head
Is cleaned, then th. face, nor is the task

The other day a yonng lady visiting
friends in Bewickley decided to prolong
her stay a usual decision with those
visiting Sewickley. She wished to no
tify her father of her plans. She neither
wrote nor telegraphed, bnt simply went
to the Sewickley telephone station and
talked to her father, who was at his
office in a town in the eastern end of the
state, over 200 miles away. The miracle
of the talking wire is one which seems
more miraculous as the long distance
telephone reaches points hitherto at
tained only by the telegraph or tha
slower process of the mails. Pittsburg

Mail carriers are sometimes prone to
make mistakes, just as other people are.
Not only In their business, for that oe
enrs often with thn most rarefnl, but
It was only a few evenings ago that
one of the Kast Knd mail Isiys lunde
such a mistake sis-inlly as lo place him
In a ridiculous manner U fore the few
friends who have learned of this mis
take. For some time past Uncle Ham's agent
has tieen paying noticeable attention to
one of Fast End's fair belles, that Is, in
an indirect and seemingly nticoiicertn d
manner. In fact, the young lady did not
know of the Intended attention until be
asked permission one day tocitll upon her
that evening. When he would go lo the
house to deliver any letters to the youti;,'
lady he would always ask if Mihs
was in, always using her Christian name,
and In this way he Wnine, as he thought ,
pretty well ncqnnlnted with the object
of his affections.
Thn youn liwly was not reciprocal in
her feelings, nnd when shit was asked to
allow him lo cull she hesitated some
what, but finally snid yes.
The young man was not acquainted
with thn fact that this certain yonng
lndy had a sister almost the exact image
of herself, but she knew it mid was de
termined that the sister should help her
In her cleverly laid scheme the sister
should entertain the "letter carrier."
All arrangement were mndu for the
evening, and when the (IiioiIh'H Hounded
the sister answered and the young man
was ushered itilii the room. He did not
detect tiny difference in the sinter and
was not aware that he was talking with
any other girl than the one he had asked
to call tiKin.
The evening hours flow quickly and
he was about to depart, when lie began
pouring forth some endearing terms to
the yonng lady, who listened attentively
until he bad tiniHhed, when. Villi a
smothered laugh on her face, she asked,
"It's my siHter you wIhIi to see, is it not?"
The letter carrier was diimfouuded.

reached for his hat and with one bound
reached thn door and was soon wnuder

The Currant HeSnre It Is llrfeul.
I must confess iJiut I have ill ways
blindly supposed (vnheu I thought of it
at all) that the currant of thn plum pud
ding was the same fruit as the currant
of our gardens Uiat slightly a rid red
lierry which grows on bushes that follow
the lines of back fences btudies that
have patches of weedy ground under
them where hviistcoiiKregiite. 1 fancied
tliat by some process unknown to inn, at
the hands of persons equally unknown
(jierhaps those who bring flat toned raisins
frsm grapes), those berries wore dried,
and that they then liecame the well
known ornameut'of the Christmas cake.
It was at Ziiut that my shameful ig
norance was mnda clear to inf. Hero I
learned that thealrled fruit of commerce
Is a dwarf grape, which has nothing in
common with currant jelly. Its English
name, currant, is taken from the French
"raisin de Corintho," or Corinth grape,
a title bestowed because the fruit was
first brought into notice at Corinth. We
have stolen this name in tlie. most un
reasonable way fur onr red borry. Then,
to make the confusion worse, as soon as
we have put the .genuine currants into
our puddings and cakes we turn around
and call them "plums!"
The real currant, the dwarf grape of
Corinth, is about as large as a gooseberry
when ripe, ami Uh color is a deep violet
black; the vintage takes place In August.
It is not a hardy nino. It attains lux
uriance, I was told, only in Greece; and
eveu there it is restricted to the northern
Peloponnesus, the shores of the Gulf of
Corinth, and the lonlun islands. Con

bureau of information, where ladies
may obtain servants and those ia need
of employment find work. It has been
extraordinarily successful. During the
first year 1,1)00 employers found serv

Strange applications come to the office.
One lady recommended her departing
servant as "clean, tidy, honest, sober.
truthful and a good worker." Wonder-
ing why maid and mistress should part
under these conditions, the bureau found
that a terribly bad temper was the cause
"But, strangely enough," said the
chief, "it happened that a lady had just
applied to us for a servant with a bad
temper, believing that such girls make
the cleanest handmaids. So that we are

To Preserve Milk.
There are many ways of preserving
milk so as to keep it sweet, bnt one of
the most satisfactory is that which is at
present practiced at an establishment in
Texas. The milk, fresh from the cow,
is subjected to a boiling heat, and after
the air has been expelled from it the
cans are hermetically sealed. When the
process was first invented, about fifteen
years ago, several dozen bottles were
sealed up. Every year some of these are
opened, and after fifteen years' keeping
the milk has in every case been found
perfectly fresh. St. Paul Pioneer Press.

Three Ileniarks About Marriage.
.James Lano Allen has a story en
titled "John Gray," in which he has
three remarks to inube apropos to the
subject of marriage: '"Home women ia
marrying demand all .and give all; with
good men they are happy; with base men
they are broken hearted. Home demand
everything and give little; with weak
men they are tyrants; with strong men
they are divorced. Every bachelor is
really the husband of aa old maid. For
every single man carries around with
him the spirit of a woman to whom he is
maie or less happily wedded. When a
man actually marries, this inner help
maim wisely disappears la the presence

Meerschaum would not color at all
bnt for the fact that it is boiled in wax.
If used in ita natural state it would
quickly become soiled, the material be
ing so porous that it absorbs the slight
est moisture from the hand or anything
it comes in contact with. But the wax
fills up the pores and gives the meer
schaum a sort of enamel. A pipe that
has been spoiled by overheating, so that
it will not color, can be rebelled in wax
and restored to some extent. This kind
of work is done in the trade by experts,

A Clever llefen.e.
Sea raptalns have many adventures,
and the stories of their wonderful es
capes seldom lose by reimtitlon. Many
years ago pirates cruised up and down
the English channel to the great peril of
thn merchantmen. Thn story is told of
a Captain llavis, who wns noted for his
quick wit as well as for his skill in navi-
fiatton, that hn was returning from Inl
and with a cargo consisting mainly of
He had not lieen out very long when a
pirate was seen coming down upon him.
In vain all sails were spread; every mo
ment brought the pirate nearer.
The men were at their wit s end, bnt
the captain knew a trick or two. Hn
ordered his men to lake off their boots
and stockings, and directed that a score
of butter barrels lie brought on deck.
In a few minutes thn barrels had been
knocked to pieces, and thn butter was
thickly spread all over thn deck and out
side thn ship. Not a rope nor a spar
that was not slippery. Even without
their txxit and stockings thn sailors
conld scarcely keep on their legs.
On came thn pirate, not dreaming bow
smoothly he was to bn received. Cnp
tain Davis assumed an air of submission
and allowed the enemy to enmn along
But lot when they jmned over, fully
armed, with pistol in onn hand and
sword in thn other, they slipped alsiut
and tumbled over each other on thn but
tered deck liknso many rats.
Onn fo!lo: shot head foremost down
Into thn r.ahin, where he was imme
diately set upon by the boy; another
slid ncniHS thn deck and shot out Into
the sea by an opjsisltn portholn.
Not one of tiiein could stand on his
feet, and as pinitos are generally super
stitious, an Idea seized them that thn
ship was possessed of thn devil. They
hurried buck into their own vessel, cant
loose, and Captain Davis got safely into
port nt thn expense of a few sninds of
butter. Youth's Companion.
The Itared Head at Funerals.
Thn I wired head at funerals is, for hy
gienio reasons, lioeoming a custom of
the past in some localities. An agita
tion against it was started by Captain
Genrgn A. Raabn, a memtier of many
berwvolent societies in Han Francisco,
and aa a result of his lalxirn nearly
every society of thn kind on thn Pacific
coast has adopted resolutions to the ef
fect that thn members shall keep their
hat on at thn graves of their departed
comrades. Grand Army posts in Cali
fornia have followed suit. Societies in
Milwaukee are discussing thn same
.question. Health Osmmissioner Win
gatn, of that city, recently made thnMi
sensible reinnrks on the subject of the
exactions of the modVrn funeral:
Death comes at a time very often in a
family when an overworked and nearly
broken down mother or sister or wife,
or perhaps a husband, is nearly if not
completely prostrated, and whosn health
is in a most precarious condition. Phy
sicians can testify, an no other class in
thn community an, to thn often serious
results of a funeral as it is conducted
nowadays. A delicate memtier of tlm
family, who perhaps has not Wen ont
of the house for weeks, worn down and
prostrated by the rare and grief inci.
dent to the loss of a dear relative, is snl
jected to a long, slew rido in a carriage
on a cold, incleinewt day. Custom has
had its way; the victim, following the
custom, thinking tt a duty, returns t
her home, not to g ont again till she is
followed over the same road to the last
resting place by perhaps others who fall
victims after her.
I am comparatively a young man, and
yet I have not fingers enough on which
to count cases of this kind that have
come under my own observation and in
my own experience as a physician, and I
have resolved to raise my voice against
this custom whenever and wherever I
may have the opportunity. Chicago
A Chines. City at Today.
Amoy proper and its suburbs have a
living population of about 1,000,000 and
a dead one of four and a half times as
many. The wells am shallow and are
sunk on the edges of the graveyards,
and even among the tombs themselves.
I have not seen one whose water is not
muddy and discolored by the perpetual
turning np of the soil.
The city is a relio of the past It ia
walled the same as it was in the time of
Confucius. It has no sewers whatever.
The streets vary from two to six feet in
width; no wheeled vehicle can use
them. An equestrian would experience
great difficulty in turning a corner.
Here and there is an open space or
plaza, dug out so as to be a huge open
cesspool; into it the streets discharge
their filth. Cor. Practitioner.
