"Mob With Noose Threaten Blacks

Itself runs: "Determined that the I

The Wonderful Dragon Trees ot Ten
Objects of Interest In Ten er I e are
the celebrated dragon trees, which
are really a species of gigantic sp?.
ragus. One tree, situated at Lnguna,
the ecclesiastical capital of t le is?
land, Is said to be several thcusand
years old. The growth of these drag?
on trees Is very slow, and they throw
out no branches until thty have blos?
somed, which seldom takes pla :e be?
fore their fifteenth year, and some?
times not until their thlrteth. The
oldest dragon tree known Irs) the Is*
land was that at Orotava, which was
at least six thousand years old- some
botanists say ten thousand! It was
about sixty feet high, with a trunk
48 feet In circumference at the base.
The ancient Inhabitants of tie is?
land, the Guanchos, performed their
religious rites In Its hollow trunk.
In 1867 the upper part of th? tree
was broken off during a storm, and,
though every effort was made t > pre?
serve the remainder, It gradually de?
cayed, and there Is now no trac B of It
left. The sap of the tree, a resinous
substance like dark treacle, Is called
"dragron's blood." It becomes l.rit
tle and crumbling when dry, and is
an article of commerce used in med?
icine. There are other kinds of drag?
on trees In different parts of the
world, but this particular species is
peculiar to the Canary and Cape
Verde Islands.?World Wide Maga?

Charles Edwards Russell In "Success
Magazine.'1 It Is wrong for him, In
violation of the law, to obstruct the
sidewalk, or In violation of the law
to occupy space under the street, or
to defy the building department;
wrong for him to do these things,
and wrong to pay aldermen and po?
lice captains for the illegal privilege
of doing them. Of course, we are
right in this thought. All these acts
are wrong, but we overlook the fact
that they are what may be called
capitalized wrong; that is to aay,
they have become part and parcel
of the conditions under which busi?
ness may be done, not alone by this
one man whom we condemn, but by
all men. They are the established
customs of his trade; they have be?
come Institutions more powerful than
laws of police; we n.ust bow o them
Neither wit nor will can stand
against them. Suppose to the con?
trary. Suppose him to be of such
moral fiber that he Is able to stand
alone and feel quite indifferent to the
codes of his neighbors. Suppose
him, therefore, to say, "I will not
use the space under the sidewalks, I
will not obstruct the highways, I
will not violate in the slightest par?
ticular the regulations of the govern?
ment." The only result would be
that he would cease to do business.
His own conscience, to be sure, will
be free from any reflection that he
has departed from the prescribed
duty of the citizen, if such a reflec?
tion would cause him any pain, but
this will in no wise help the public
nor vindicate the law. The man who
takes his place will obstruct the side?
walk, defy the building department
and pay blackmail to the wardman
as Inevitably as the sun shines. He
will do these things, or things like
them, or he in his turn will cease to
do business. He may be at heart the
beat of men; most honest, upright,
jealous of his good name and
cherishing stern principles of civic
duty, yet necessity will force him.
Against his will, to do the things that
are done In his trade, law or noiaw.
