A London paper accounts for the dis
appearance of a great deal of the gold in
this country in the following very im
probable manner. "About tl.9G0.CO0.O0O
in gold has been produced in the United
States since tte first discovery cf. the
metal in 1S49, and the amount cxpored
hag been 470,000,000 more tliaa the
amount imported. A'ttr including e!i

A I-nxury in India.
Pawn (properly pan) is a luxury mneh ea
leemed by the natives Of India. It con
lists of the fresh leaf of the betel vin
(Piper betel), iu which is placed a little
red catechu, bstel nut and quicklime.
Spices are also often added and sometimes
a piece of dry tobacco. Cloves and a piece
cf the root of the betel vine are sometimes
added medicinally for colds and coughs,
for pawn is also regarded as a stimulant.
If a native of India be an opium eater he
adds some of his favorite narcotic. 'When
these several additions have been made
the leaf is folded in a particular way and
aten with its contents. The betel leaf is
obtained from a creeper extensively culti
vated by the Hindoos, who regard it as
very sacred, and it is with the greatest
difficulty that any one who is a follower of
another religion can obtain admittance
Into a plantation of betel vines. The betel
nut is obtained from the nreca palm, and
is so called simply because it is eaten With
the betel leaf.
The visible effect of eating pawn is that
tne teeth, tongue and lips all become red,
and the two latter much swollen, so much
80 that, after a long course of pawn chew
ing, tbe utterance becomes thick and indis
tinct and the teeth black. The expectora
tion is also much increased and is colored
a deep red from the same cause.
To our English taste pawn is very of
fensive, but the natives of India relish it
and regard it as a necessity. It is much
eaten by Mohammedans of both sexes and
by the natives of Bengal. The Hindoos of
northern India do not indulge in it so
freely. Eurasians and the others of mixed
races frequently chew it, and some are in
the habit of continually taking it; but it
would be quite accurate to wiy that no
person of pure English parentage is in the
habit of eating pawn. Chambers' Journal.

PITIFUL POCKETLESS WOMAN.
T What Stilfts Is She Put to Carry Safe
Her Purse and Handkerchief.
If human ln'insrs were classified accord
ing to their most striking peculiarities the
fair sex of this period would surely be
called "the pocketless woman."
Plain sheath skirts are all very fine,
but it never entered into the folds of a
bell skirt to nlTonl a hiding plnce for a
Nevertheless there are certain articles
which must be carried, pocket or no
pocket, ami tbe ways of doing this, which
are devised by most women,' are both
ludicrous and pathetic.
When a woman starts out hhopping or
visiting, or o i any errand, there are sev
eral articles viiieh it, behooves liertorarrv.
In the lirst place every well meaning wom
an likes to In ve a handkerchief concealed
somewhere aliout her person, and, further
more, it cioesn t make much difference
whether she be arrayed with the panoply of
righteousness, but she must carry at least
her car fare.
This is the very simplest way in which
the case presents itself. Hut the ways in
which women meet it are legion. Take
money! Often n woman has -more than
she is absolutely certaia to need, and
knowing full well by dire experiences the
manifold tlant "ers which attend her pocket
less condition, she stows it away in divers
and sundry pi ices.
The hat is a not uricorr mou hiding place
for this little surplus, which is securely
pinned between the hat, frame and the lin
ing. A great many women carry their
extra money in a small bag placed inside
their dress waists. Othe-s wear bands
about their waists, as did the miners in
the old California days. Others select
their stockings- and still others their shoes
as repositories of wealth. These women
are always making some purchase which
overdraws the cash they have in sight, as
it were. It is very amusing then. The
woman logins to invite; says she thinks
she will wait a little while before deciding.
Clerk, very mncii aggrieved, urges the de
sirahiHty of th.' goods. Woman blushes.
Clerk grows e loquent. Woman says she
will go over to t lie glove counter while he
is cutting the material. Truth licgins to
dawn on clerk's mind and a smile on his
fare. Woman disappears, not in the direc
tion of the glo.-e counter. Reappears ia
fiveminutes sot:iewhat ruffled, but solvent.
Some women carry money, particularly
car fare, ia the palms of their hands.
Othevs, ho Tor ! have small change be

Handkerchiefs are generally tucked un

up her sleeve. That is, she did until tho

Do Hot bleep mi Your Left Side.
When a patient c omplains of a bad taste
In his mouth every morning on waking up,
the first question I ask him is us to the po
sition he assumes when going to sleep.
An immense number of people sleep on
the left side, and this is the most common
cause of the unpleas-ant taste which is gen
erally attributed to dyspepsia. If a meal
has been taken within two or three hours
of going to bed, to sleep ou the left Bide is
to give the stomach t task which It is dif
ficult in the extrei le to perform. The
student of anatomy knows that all food en
ters and leaves the stomach on the right
aide, and hence slee ling on the left side
soon alter eating invjlves a sort of pump
ing operation which is anything but con
ducive to sound repo-ie.
The action of the heart is also interfered
with considerably, a ud the lungRare un
duly compressed. It is probable that lying
on the back is the n ost natural position,
but few men can rest easily so, and hern e it
is best to cultivate tl e habit of sleeping on
the right side. It is very largely a matter
of habit, and the six tier it. is acquired the
better for the sleeper and the worse for the
physician. Interview in St. Louis (ilobe

A Cat That Took to Water.
The most interesting trait in our cat's
character did not appear until he had been
a week or so on board. Then he gave us a
surprise. It was when we were lying in
Camden harbor. Everybody was going
ashore to take a tramp among the hills,
and Charlie, the cook, was coming, too, to
row the boat back to the yacht.
Middy discovered that he was somehow
"getting left." Ileing a prompt and very
decided cat, it did not take him long to
make up his miud what to do. He ran to
the low rail of the yacht, put his forepaws
on it, and gave us a long, anxious look.
Then as the boat was shoved off he raised
his voice iff a plaintive mow. We waved
him a good by, chaffed him pleasantly,
and told him to mind the anchor and have
dinner ready when we got back.
That was too much for his temper. As
quick as a flash he dived overlxiard and
was swimming like a water spaniel after
That was the strangest thing we had
ever seen in all our lives. We were quite
used to elephants that could play at see
saw and horses that could fire cannon, to
learned pigs and educated dogs, but a cat
that of his own accord would take to the
water like a full blooded Newfoundland
was a little beyond anything we had ever
heard of. Of course the boat was stopped
and Middy was taken aboard drenched and
shivering, but perfectly happy to lie once
more with the crew. He had been ignored
and slighted, but he had insisted on his
rights, and as soon as t hey were recognized
be was quite contented. Baltimore Amer

Hod Carrier Eessner, while working on
a building in East Fifty-fifth street, found
a bag containing $1,SX). He handed it to
the foreman for safe keeping, awaiting an
owner. The foreman reported that he had
handed it to fellow Hod Carrier Ilynes,
who was the owner. Eessner sued Hynes
to get the money back. Hynes testified
that the amount was his savings, which he
had put into a bag and tied with a string.
"Was it a Mack string or a red string:'1'
"A black string." Yes, witness was sure
it was a black string. Ixssner had testi
fied that the bag was tied with a red
string. The bag is produced; the string it
is tied wit h is red; the jury finds a verdict
against Hynes, who must give the money
back to Lcssner.
