"NOT AT HOME" IN SWEDEN.
The Curious Custom of Hanging the Key
Outside the Door.
When the Swedes go calling they
lock up and then hang the key on the
bell or door knob or in some other con
spicuous place. When they go visiting
for a few weeks holts and bars are slid
nto plaec and then out goes the key.
the house is shut up for an entire
bason or a full year the gaily swing
ing door key says "Not at home" to
There is no kicking your heels on the
'door mat in Sweden while the bell or
knocker awakes the echoes in an empty
house. Agents, peddlers, friends and
relatives all know this message of the
door, and, seeing it, pass by.
As can be readily imagined, writes a
correspondent of the Los Angles Times,
I this strange custom has been put to j
Lkoo(1 usc >n many instances when visi
Vtors wore not wanted. Instead of tell
r ing the maid to inform visitors that
Mrs. Jones is not at home, the mistress
says lo Jennie: "Hang out the door
key at .1 o'clock this afternoon and
^Jbring it in at 9 o'clock; T don't wish to
? ace anyone for a few hours.''
About the first of the month in cer-1
tain districts door keys swing to the
breezes in great numbers, and collec
tors, knowing the custom and also its
, misuses, scratch their heads in perplex
ity at this not-at-home signal.

Ijfi^ -ldom misuse the confidence.
?jistartcd yu?fs ago, when
it was the usual thing for "holy men"
or priests to travel through Sweedish
villages stopping to leave their bless
ings on the households of the neighbor
hood. These visits were looked for
ward to with eagerness by the pious
Swedes, and it was considered an act
of grossest discourtesy to bar the door,
for whatever reason, against a holy
man. Consequently, if a family left
home the key was always put out
against the arrival of the prie?tv Meat
and drink were left, and should the
holy man stop at a vacant house he en
tered, refreshed himself, left his bless
ing in the form of a candle, a pottle of
holy water or a bit of consecrated
green, and passed on.
Thus the custom originated, and al
though these quaint villages** have be
come towns, and traveling priests have
passed away and the influx of other na
tions has modernized Sweden and
brought the evil of theft with it, the
door keys still hang out aa cvidenco of
trust and open-doorcd hospitality.
A thief selom dtakes down one of
the keys and enters, fo, there is uncer
tainty about the absence of the resi
dents spoken of to hold him back, and
the knowledge that an exposed door
key may merely mean that the owner
has stepped across to the store and will
return any minuto makes tampering
with property risky.?Ex.

Vermont'? Two Sennona.
Ono winter when Thaddens Stereos
had como back to his Vermont home
he was the victim of a severe cold
and could not leave the house for many
weeks. One of his callers was Lewis
Clark, a man of short stature, who
In earlier days had beon a playmate of
the "Old Commoner" and was a near
neighbor of the Stevens family in their
Peacham home. Vermonters had just
begun to wear buffalo coats, and Mr.
Clark arrived at the Stevens borne al
most lost In a coat which reached to
the ground. His upturned collar com
pletely covered his earn and face, whllo
a fur cap completed tho dlsgulso.
"Is that you, Lewis?" asked Mr.
Stevens In an incredulous tone.
"Yes, Thad," he replied.
"Well, skin yourself and sit down,"
exclaimed the other.
During the Interesting conversation
which followed Mr. Olnrk asked Ste
vens If he wouldn't come back to his
Vermont home and live.
"No," roplled Stevens. "You have

The Crooodlle'n Slrong Jniv.
Sir Samuel Bnker In his "Wild
Bcosts" says that tho power of tho
Jaws of the crocodile Is terrlltc. Onco
he had the metal of a large hook, the
thickness of ordinary telegraph wire,
completely bent together, the barbed
point being pressed tightly against the
shank and rendered useless. This com
pression was caused by "the Bnap of the
Jaws when seizing a llvo duck which
ho had used as a bait, the hook being
fastened beneath ono wing. On one
occasion ho found a fish weighing sov
enty pounds bitten clean through as If
divided by a knife. This, again, was
the work of a snap from the Jaws of a
crocodile M. Paul Bert onco made
experiments on the strength of a croc
odile's jaws by means of a dynamome
ter. He found that a crocodile weigh
ing 120 pounds.exerted a force of ?0S
pounds In closing his Jaw. Tho lion
has an enormous Jaw power. On one
occasion an African traveler pushed
the butt end of his gun Into a Jlon's
mouth, and the pressure of the Jaws
cracked It as though it had been struck
by a steam hammer.

. Disappointed Bridegroom hues.
John B. Kori, a disappointed bride
groom, has instituted suit against Jacob
Nadar Hazouri, to recover damages in
the sum of $369.
The suit, which has begun in the
county court, is an action in assumpsit,
tho plaintiff seeking to recover the de
posit made as evidence of the sincerity
of his intentions, the money value of
the gifts he lavished upon his prospec
tive bride, and the expenses incidental
to tho trip taken to New York for the
purpose of marrying.
Tho defendant, Jacob Nadar Hazouri,
iB the father of the young Syrian wo
man that Kori thought was to be his
bride. He it was, according to the
plaintiff, who put an end to the ro
mance, and who, after promising Kori
his daughter's hand in marriage, refus
ed to carry out his part of the agree
ment, and still refuses to sanction the
FOLLOWING SVKIAN CUSTOM.
Both Kori, the plaintiff, and Hazouri,
the defendant, arc Syrians, and when
Cupid wounded the heart of Kori, he,
following the custom that prevails in
ins native land, went to the father of
the object of his devotions and asked
for her hand in marriage.
In Syria, according to the allegations,
all nuptial matters arc arranged be
tween the prospective bridegroom and
his prospective father-in-law direct,
tho bride-to-be has no part in these
preliminaries. Another Syrian custom
requires the groom to deposit with the
father of his bride-to-be a sum of mon
ey, a sort 0 ' alimony in advance, as a
guarantee of his good intentions.
If ho keeps to his agreement and
marries her for whose hand ho has ask
ed, the money is returned to him who
deposited it, at his option. If tho par
ent declines to allow the ceremony to
take place this advance deposit must be
returned at once.
KORI MADE DKPOSIT.
Kori, in his bill of complaint, alleges
that on April 5, 1906, Hazouri promised
him the hand of his daughter, the wed
ding to take place a few months there
after, and in accordance with the cus
tom outlined above, paid $100 in cash
as a guarantee of good faith.
Then, says the bill, with plans all
settled and the wedding a seeming cer
tainty, Kori lavished gifts on his pros
pective4 bride and upon her parents.
The engagement ran from April to
September, and in addition to gifts of
jewelry, Kori says he presented the
family with merchandise, groceries and
All this he did with the understand
ing that tho daughter of Hazouri was
to marry him in September.
THE ROMANCE ENDS.
On or about September 26, 190(5 says
Kori, he journeyed from Jacksonville
to Troy, N. Y., to celebrate his nup
tials. Troy was then, he avers, the
temporary home of Hazouri, and he
maintains that he took the trip at the
express request of Hazouri, and with
the understanding that the wedding
would take place immediately after his
(Kori's) arrival in New York city.
At the appointed time he appeared
ready, willing and anxious to keep his
part of the marriage agreement. But
Hazouri, according to Kori, had experi
enced a change of heart, and would not,
under any conditions, consent to the
And this was not all, for, as the bill
alleges, Hazouri clung to the $100 de
posited, declining absolutely-to return
it, refused to reimburse Kori for expen
ses of tho trip to Troy, or to pay him
for any of the articles that he had giv
en him during the engagement period.
BILL OF PARTICULARS.
Now Kori, all other meanings falling,
brings bis suit to recover what he lost
through the shattering of the romance.
Ho wants first the $100 which he de
posited as a guarantee of good faith.
Then he wants another $100 as reim
bursement for Iiis trip to Troy, which
he avers cost him that amount.
For gifts given the family, and he
mentions ladies' wearing apparel, co
logne, soap, paint, valise, meat, dishes,
medicine, groceries, bedding and other
things as among the gifts, he asks $1G9,
the cost thereof.
The outcome of the suit will be
watched with interest, owing to the
unique grounds on which it is brought.

The Cold Summer ot 1816.
Persons are in the habit of fpcaking
of the cold summer of 1816 as the clod
est ever known throughout America
and Europe. Having in our possession
some facts relative to this subject we
propose to give them in order to re

us as rememberer the year without a
summer; also to furnish correct infor

matters of this kind. We shall, there
fore, give a summary of each of the
months of the year 1816, extracted in
part from "Pierce on the Weather:"
January was mild- so much so as to
render flres almost needless in sitting
rooms. December, the month immedi
ately preceding this, was very cold.
Fcdruary was not very cold, with
tho exception of a few days it was
mild like its predecessor.
March was cold and boisterous, the
first half of it- the remainder was
mild. A groat freshet of tho Ohio and
Kentucky rivers that caused great loss
April began warm and grew colder
as tho month advanced, and ended with
snow and ice, with a temperature more
like winter than spring.

smiles. Buds and fruits were frozen

July was accompanied byTfrost and
ice. On tho morning after the 4th,
ice formed to the thickness of common
window glass throughout New England,
New York and some parts of Pennsyl
vania. Indian corn nearly all killed;
some favorably situated fields escaped.
This was true of some of the hill farms
August was moro cheerless if possi
ble than the summer months already
passed. Ice was formed half an inch
in thickness. Indian corn was so frozen
that the greater part of it was cut
down and dried for fodder. Almost
every green thing was destroyed, both

received from England said: "It will
ever be remember by the present gen

was called in order to distinguish it
from tho cold seasons. The winter was
mild. Frost and ice were common in
i every month of tho year. Very little
vegetation matured In the eastern ami
middle slates. The sun's rays seemed to
be destitute of heat thoughout the sum

hue and man exhibited no Httlo anxiety
concerning the futUUO of his life. Ro
