We hare heard responsible officers of the
old Indian flotilla avouch that) they have
seen tne glass register 200 degs. in the sun
at Bushire. It was a lon time ago, how
ever, and there lies the excuse. Perhaps
180 degs. has been recorded, for a brief
space, under peculiar circumstances. But
when 160 degs. is passed, every fraction In
comes horribly perceptible. Ten degrees
above this is not uncommon. The coolest
place to be fouurt at Shikarpur sometimes
has been 140 degs. But 1C0 in the shade
may rfc regarded as the temperature of the
Tery hottest climates in the world when
no wind blows. Fancy that, as the mini
mum, for forty-eight hours at a stretch.
At Sukkur the year round, mark! resi
dents endure a minimum of 97 degs.; hap
pily there are very few whites among them.
But this is in a time when no wind blows,
and winds are the rule from March to

He Saved His Wad.
"That reminds me of a fellow I knew
out at Durango, Colo.," said a mining man
last night as he dropped into a reminiscent
mood. "In Durango there is an 'upper
town' ana a lower town. Collins that
was his name on the night in question
started for the lower town. He had some
thing like f450 on his person. The way
was lonely and dark, and it was not long
before he saw a couple of fellows step out
in front of him.
" 'Throw up your hands!' was the order
to Collins, and up thev went like a shot.
He comprehended the situation at a glance,
and to the surprise of the footpads burst
out into an uncontrollable fit of laughter.
" 'What's the matter,' they asked.
" 'Why, fellows,' said he, 'I'll tell you
what s tlie matter. I haven t had any
thing to eat. since yesterday, and all I have
to say is that if there is anvthing to be
made on this little job I would like to be
in it with you fellows.' Continuing, he
said, 'Search me if you want to, and if you
don't find anything, why, give me a hand
at the game.'
"Collins little trick worked to a charm.
'Oh, we won't search you,' was the reply
he received; 'go ahead and get something
to eat. Here's four bits, and my pard here
will give you another four bits.'
"So Collins went on to "lower town'
richer than when he started." Chicago
One Way of Earning; a Living;.
There are all sorts of ways of earning

An Arab Tradition.
There is an Arab tradition cited in Bur
ton's "Gold Mines of Midian" regarding
the creation of the camel, which illustrates
the popular but erroneous opinion that
this animal is ugly in form and temper.
The story goes that when Allah deter
mined to create the horse he called the
south wind and said, "I desire to dmw
parting with thy fluidity." ao Creator
then took a handful of this element, blew
upon it the breath of life and the noble
quadruped appeared. Bat the horse com
plained against his Maker. His neck was
too short to reach the distant grassblades
on the march; Lis back had no hump to
steady a saddle; his hoofs were sharp and
sank deep into the sand, and he added
many similar grievances.
Whereupon Allah created the camel to
prove the foolishness of hiscomplaint. The
Lorn" shuddered at the sight of what he
wanted to become, and this is the reason
that every horse starts when meeting its
caricature for the first time. Rev. S. M.
Zwemer in Christian Intelligencer.

Csing the Feet In India.
In the making of wooden combs in the
cities of India I have seen the comb held
straight up by the feet, while the work
men marked the teeth with one hand and
with the other directed the instrument
that cut them. The wood turner directs
the handrest with his great toes: so, gen
erally, do Egyptian and Arabian turners.
In smoothing twine or sewing a bridle the
Indians hold the article between the first
and second toes.
When the butcher cuts his meat into
small pieces, he holds his knife between
the first and second toes, takes the meat in
both hands and pulls it up across the knife.
I have seen u child climb a tree and hold a
br&cch between his toes. These are enough
details concerning the constant, universal
use of the foot. F. Iieguuult in Popular
Pussy's Little Joke.
A Saco man has declared war on chair
seats made of cane or any open work, and
for good reason too. He was sitting quiet
ly last week on a cane seat chair when
without any warning he was seen to bound
into the air, chair and all, and under the
chair was dangling a cat whose claws were
imbedded in the rear of his thin pants. He
nmped nearly to the ceiling and thought
he had sat down on a paper of tacks. It
was only a feline joke, which she will be
wise not to repeat in that locality. Ban
