of five blocks, with the city hall as
the center, is the most magnificent

this city. There are two classes ol

on each side of I'road street between
the larger columns.
The eoreer pillars are massive, bin

alternative, in heroic size, two soldiers

We all know the "gar," a long, thin

ticed that almost invariably the large
gars that were in the vicinity would
start out of the water and dash away at
headlong speed, glancing in and out
of the water like a shot. One of the
fish coming near the boat, he observed
that as soon as its direction could be
determined, the native lifted up the
peculiar flat basket that he carried and
held it as a shield, at the same time
raiding his club.
The idea of using a basket iis a shield
stemed a comical one, but was never

and almost instantly four or five gars
darted from the water, rushing away
with incredible speed. Two of the
largest came ilying toward the boat,
clearing three or four feet at a bound,
striking the water and glancing out
again, and the native had barely time
to utter a warning cry, when one of
ihem passed directly over where his
head had been a moment before. The
other came full at the native. For a
second it was under the water, then out
with a bound, dashing in the sunlight
like a meteor.
The fpiiek eye of the native, how
ever, had followed it. and. stepping
back, he raised the thick ha.-ket shield,
and received the flying gar full upon
it. The blow was so heavy that for
the instant, the man staggered, and was
nearly thrown over, while the fish, evi

.Ymoug the other botanical curiosities
of Colombia is a singular tree known as
"leehe miel" by the people and as
lacnu-lles edulis" by the scientists.
Its sap, when analyzed, contains almost
the same properties as cow's milk and
in almost the same proportions. Dur
ing the sining of the year the sap of the
milk tree is gathered by the natives as
the people of New Kngland gather the
snp of the maple, and they not only
drink it. but manufacture a creamy sub
stance that resembles butter in its
taste and properties. The fermented
milk makes a drink that is very much
like koumiss, which they preserve in
gourds. Another curiosity is n plant of
the laurel family, liotanically known as
"mirica arguta," which yields a species
of vegetable wax. and might be made a
profitable article of commerce if it were
cultivated. The wax is of greenish
color and disagreeable odor, but when
boiled and purified loses those objec
tionable qualities and becomes white.
The natives use large quantities of it to
make candles, and when refined it gives
a clear, soft light. The wax is obtained
by boiling the crushed fruit of the
laurel in water. When the water cools
the wax cqngeals on the top. A well
grown plant will furnish from 15 tp 21)
pounds a year. The wax is also used
in making soap. W. K. Curtis, in Chica

JOKE ON A SPANISH SKIPPER,
U Wan Shown the American Fa sa
lon of Loading; n Vessel
"About four years ago." said the
superintendent of one of Buffalo's grain
elevators, "while I was in charge of an
elevator in Baltimore, a small brig ran
up to the elevator to take ou a load of
wheat. The captain's name was Don
selo. He was a Spaniard and for ten
or twelve years had traded around in
eastern rts. He had never seen a
raia elevator and his idea of loading
rain inito a vessel was that it was shov
eled in by hand, as it was years ago.
lie found me and in his gruff way said:
"I want to put in 15.000 bushels of
wheat, and I don't want to lay around
here a week or two. See if you can't
get me out of here in two days anyhow.
"I smiled, said that I would try. and
jave orders a minute later to get the
brig up in position, where we could as
sail her in good shape. The captain
went to his licrth to sleep, for it was
nearlv midnight then. We snugged the
little craft up against the wharf,
Dpened her hatches and inserted three
full-sized spouts leading from well
filled bins in the top of the elevator.
All the employes understood what the
joke was to be and they decided to break
a record. Everything was ready for the
loading a half hour after ('apt. Don-i-elo
went to his berth, but we had cou
Jluded to let him get fast asleep before
joing on with the joke.
"It was an hour and a half after the
captain had disappeared that the power
was turned on and a second later thou
sands of bushels of grain went rushing
from the bins into the hold of the little
?raft. The boat listed heavily for a
moment and threatened to overturn,
but the grain sliil over to the center and
righted the ship. Down rushed the
grain through the three spouts. You
could hear the roar for a thousand feet.
Seven minutes after the power was
turned on the power was turned off.
The 15.000 bushels had been paid out
ind ('apt. Doncelo's boat was setting
pretty low in the water. About this
time the captain appeared on deck in
his night shirt.
" 'To the pumps!' he shouted in Span
ish in his loudest tones.
"The crew- was on deck in a minute
and ("apt Doncelo flitted about like a
paper man in a windstorm. Spying me
on the wharf laughing, he accosted me.
""What is the matter that my boat
unks at her dock?" he asked.
"'She's not sinking. I guess. You
said you wanted to get out of here in
less than a week and we loaded your
boat for you in a hurry.'
"The captain looked at me ipieerly.
stepped over to the hatchway and
looked at the heap of golden grain in
the hold. He was amaze'd. to say the
least. He remained in port long enough
to have the mystery explained, and a
good wind prevailing, he set out. He
had lain just two hours at the dock."

Proper Training of Children F.H
lirm-fx Lessons in Self
Control. Perhaps no form of incorrigibility is
less understood than that which in
cludes a lack of emotional control.
Children of both stxis are equally af
fected. Successful treatment invariably in
volves the development of moral hy
giene on a rational and persistent basis.
A regular system verging on military
discipline must be established regular
hours for rising and retiring, regular
times for meals, which should be more
frequent than ordinary (about two
hours apart during the waking- hours),
regular limes for study, exercise and
sleep. All the activities of the pa
tient should be a.s regular as clock
work, and no interference with such
activities should ever be permitted.
Xothii g serves to establish emotional
v.ntrol better than regularity in occu
pation, which should be varied as fre
quently as necessary, not at the caprice
of the child, but by the direction of the
attendant, who must be keen to an
ticipate fatigue of attention on the part
of the patient. If possible, the child
should be placed in an entirely new eu
vironinent. It is much easier to estab
lish correct dietetic and hygienic rules
'.n such than in the patient's ow n home,
where, in many instances, marked hick
of emotional control and gross infrae--.ions
of proper rules of diet exist.
Sweet Watermelon Pieklea.
Take off the green rind and cut oil
the pink portion from the inside of a
watermelon. Weigh, and to each seven
pounds allow four pounds of sugar, a
pint of vinegar, two teaspoonfuls of
allspice, the same of cinnamon, half
the quantity of cloves, half a teaspoon
f ii 1 of !!Tounl mace and a teasixmnful
of grr.gcr. Mix all the spices together;
separate them into four parts, and tie
each in a piece of cheesecloth. Put
the watermelon over the fire in cold
water, bring to boiling point and cook
until it is transparent. Drain it. Put
the sugar and vinegar with all the
spices in a porcelain-lined kettle. When
boiling add the watermelon, a little at
a time: cook until t is dark not. more
than five or ten minutes: then put away
in a stone jar. Next morning drain off
all the juice, heat to boiling point and
pour it over the watermelon rind. Do
t!is for nine consecutive mornings, the
last, morning heating the watermelon
rind ag::in in the juice and boiling the
juice down until it will just cover the
