peaches and fruit generally, will be
much above the average. In many
sections the outlook now is as good
as it could be for a full crop. The
fruit is sufficiently matured to be
practically beyond all danger, ex

ASKING THE CAPTAIN.
"oat What Happened When Informatloa
Was Sought from the Commander.
"Once on an ocean steamer," said a
traveler, "wo had a heated shaft bear
ing, or something of that sort, so that
the engines stopped for five or six hours.
I had often read and heard about how
tho captain was the great inognl aboard
ship, how abont all things pertaining
to the affairs of the ship he held aloof
and must not be approached by the pas
sengers, and that it was a sort of viola
tion of the unwritten rules of the' sea
for a passenger to ask tho captain any
thing. And there may be some reason
in all this; if one passenger might ask
him, 40 might, and surely the command
er of the ship ought not to be unneces
sarily disturbed by useless questions.
Ve bad been lying there three or four
hours waiting. There was no danger
whatever, bnt it was a delay and an in
cident of interest, and of conrso all tho
passengers talked about nothing else
the common information was that tho
delay was due to a heated bearing.
"I was standing on the upper deck
by the door to the main companienway
leading to the deck below. The captain
came along the upper deck front tho
after port of the ship and went below
by that compauionway. He must pass
witlun a loot of me, and under the cir
cumstauces it did not seem liko a vio
lently unreasonable breach of salt water
etiquette to ask him what was tho mat
ter, which I did. A passenger who stood
on tho other side of the doorway looked
at rue with the amused smile of on older
traveler. The captain said nothing. ' Ho

pearances quite unconscious of my ques

The Tree Killer.
One of the carious forest growths cf
tho isthmus of Panama end lower Cen
tral America in general is the vino
which tho Spaniards call matapalo, or
"tree killer. " This vine first starts in
lifo as a climber upon the trunks of the
largo trees, and, owing to its marvel'
ously rapid growth, soon reaches tho
lower branches. At this point it first be
gins to put out its "feelers' tender,
harmless looking root shoots, which
soon reach the ground and become as
firmly fixed as the parent stern. These
hundreds of additional sap tubes give
the whole vine a renewed lease of life,
and it begins to send out its aerial ten
drils in ail directions. These iutwine
themselves tightly around every limb of
tho tree, even creeping to tho very far
thermost tips and squeezing the lifo out
of both bark and leaf. Things go on at
this rate but a short while before the
forest giant is compelled to succumb to
tho gigantic parasite which is sapping
its life's blood. Within a very few years
the tree rots and falls away, leaving the
matapalo standing erect and hollow,
like a monster vegetable devilfish lying
upon it back with its horrid tentacles
clasped together high in the air. Mor
gan, "Central America Afoot," says.
"Corcliko arbors of matapalo are to be
seen in all directions, each testifying to
the lingering death of some sylvan giant

Tws Characteristic Stories of tits Gonial
Ex-Govcraor of Illlaoie.
I think it was during the Cleveland-
Blaine campaign that ex-Governor
Oglesby of Illinois, "Uncle Dick," as
be is familiarly known, first made a stay
of any length in New York.
Be and a companion had a snmptnons
luncheon, ordered cf course by the intro
ducer, who wound np by inviting the
governor to smoke. The clerk at the ci
gar counter handed out some fine Havana
eigars. Unclo Dick was about to take
one, when some thought arrested his
hand, and he asked :
"What's the price of these?"
"Twenty-five cents," was the reply.
"Holy smoke !" ejaculated the govern
or. "Fat 'em back! Put 'ent back,
"But, governor, this is my treat,"
said his friend.

New York, they'd turn me ont of the

are good enough for me in New York
and S centers at home.
Unclo Dick always prided himself on
his snccess in campaigning when called
upon to reach a man's voto through his
family pride. .

a country town in Illinois, when he

short, then advanced and leaned over

"Certainly, sir," tho lady answered
demurely, "there is no possible objec

cle Dick, after he had finished the elev
enth. "I have seldom seen more beauti

Tho lady blushed deeply.
"Df course they are tho sweet little
treasures. From whom else, marm, could

"By the way, marm," said Uncle
Dick, "may I bother yon to tell your

"Alas, sir," quoth the lady, "I nave

Decayed Wood Rrcede Ants.
An amateur gardener has had a great
deal of trouble, year after year, with a
certain bed in her flower garden. It was
so infested by ants that nothing could
grow there, bnt was invariably devoured
by tho insects. Sho tried every vermin
destroyer known, with boiling water and
other preventives, ail without success.
At length sho found that a portion of -the
outer boarding of the shed which stood
near this bed was decayed and needed
renewal. When theo boards were taken
away, they were found to be alive with
ants, which, being destroyed, disappear
ed from her flowers, and she has had no
more annoyance from them. Often ants
will get into the house closets and into
the food in tho same way from some de
cayed wood near at hand, in which they
