A Scotch Auction.
At an auction sal<* in a Scottish
village tlx' auctioneer was trying t?
sell a number of domestic utensils,
including a porridr.e pot. As usual,
ho was rnal:iiv; a Ki'f at fuss. Finishing,
hi? U-'cn < y. caught a well known
worthy, the beadle, standing at tho
hack of the < : wd, and he shouted
out: "Maistw .McTaviah, make an offer
for LhlH pot! Why. i'. would make
a splendid )<ir.< boll!" "Aye," replied
the hpadk*. "If your tongue \va?
in It!"
HONEST INDIANS.
The Red Men of Northern Canada i
Have a High Code of Honor.
The honesty of I be w oods Indian - !
that Is. I he Indian of Northern Can i
ada? is of a verv hltih order. ti>o i
son bo of mine and thine is strongly j
forced by the exigencies of tlie North j
Woods life. A man is always on the !
move. It li? impossible for him to j
transport all his goodr. The i:ti'*t.- (
mints of winter are a burden in sumuier.
The return journey from dis- j
!a;it shores must be providt-d f11 l>' j
food station*. The solution of the.^o
needs is the cache.
And the cache ie not a literal term :
nt all. It conceals nothing. Rather j
dofR it hold aloft in long-logged prominence.
for the in*p!ction o; all who j
pass, what the owner lias seen flt to ;
leave behind. A heavy platform higli j
enough from the ground to frustrate |
the investigations of unituala i, ail I
that Is required. Visual ?oncvalment
id unnecessary, because in tin* North
country a cache is Sco-re'l. On it may
depend the life of a man. )! who
leavot* provisions mii<! find tiiem on |
his return, for he may reach taem
starving, and Lue WuRth of his out- j
journey may depend on his certainty
of relief at thin point on his in jour- |
ney. 80 men passing touch not. on t
It is hoard, for some ciay tliey may be
iu the same ?as". and a precedent
is a had ihinKThus
in parts of the wildest conn- |
triea of Northern Canada I have tin- j
exyoctedlv come upon a birch canoehanging

Grandmother at Thirty-four.
"The wife of a Brooklyn Alderman
has just hart (he rare experience of
becoming a grandmother at thirty
MIX.
The above paragraph, which appear- '
ed in The Express recently, has pro- 1
vided an instant challenge froru a
lady who lives near Brighton.
"Is this unusual?" sho asks. "I was i
married at fifteen. i had a daughtt r !
at sixteen. She married .'it seventeen
and she had a chfhl nearly a your
afterward.
"Therefore I was a grandmother at |
thirty-four. I bad four children be- j
fore I way twenty-one, and have had j
none sinci*. Now 1 am forty-two. My !
girls are all grown up, so we are like
live Nhters. ami as happy as Qneenv.
"Three of my daughters ar.s mar
i iru, Aim i niivi [vvu grandsons.
"I roil id not r?>! ist the clialleniro
implied in your paragraph, weeing that
1 could sf> distinctly x<> one better
than the American grandmother."
Our correspondent's achievement is
heroic. But she will probably not be
astonished to find, in *pit<? of the oovions
surprise of hvr question, that
she ha* very few competitors in lingland.
Th? lady was married at flfteou. i
Now, in all Eugittnd at the time of
the last census there were only thirty 1
wives of ihat agt. This is not conciu- 1
sive. of course. If tli?- oaimus ? ?? > I
taken annually, it might. ^how thirty ;
wives at the of fifteen every !
year.
Against that, however, is to bo set
th?? extreme improbability of juveaile
marnage "extending to th? second generation.
It no more follows that the
daughter of a girl of serenteen will
herself be a mother at. seventeen
rI.an it follows that the first born of
a woman of fort> will not be a mother i
n'ltil she is forty h< rs?lf.
Such records :is that of the lady
in the vieintu of Brighton are more i
common in count rios like Australia,
where young jrfris mature Into women
while still very young. In India a
woman who was not a grand mother
uiiiii sue was tniriy.-six would Ve regarded
as an *e.cent.vic;ly. '! wo in

of India are niarrlvd before they aiu
