A VERY DANIEL INDEED.
If You Haven't tho Money, You Can't
Decided the Policeman.
A policeman accomplished a delicate
piece of diplomacy tlio other afternoon
at Cathedral parkway and Columbus
avenue. Excavations uro in progress
there for a new building, and a gang of
Italian laborers are doing tho work un
dor the eyo of a boss of thoir own
nationality. As the writer approached
tho spot a young Italian laborer was
angrily exchanging words with tho
foreman. Ho carried his coat nu ouo
arm and over the opposite shoulder was
slung Iiis shovel, which he removed and
shook in tho intensity of his gesticula?
tion. Suddenly hosuwnpolicoinan near
by, and ho mado a dash for the bluecoat
and asked for his assistance.
Tho officer cumo along with the Ital?
ian, and tho two joined tlio foreman.
Tho policeman, who was an Irishman
somo -10 years old, woro a magisterial
air, looked patronizingly and kindly
upon tho two Italians, who spoke good
English, and then be listoncd gravely
to their talo of WOO. The boss bad dis?
charged the young fellow ou the spot,
alleging that ho did not do his work
satisfactorily. The young man wanted
Iiis wages up to date. The policeman
thought that this was only fair and so
told the foreman.
"But I haven't the contractor's
money,'' exclaimed tho foreman. "Let
him go to tho office. His time is there,
and he'll got Iiis money."
Tho policeman looked as wise as an
owl, and then turning to tho young
Italian he thus delivered judgment:
"Tho best thing you can do is to go to
tho office and get yonr money. ]f ho
(pointing to the foreman) can discharge
yon on the spot, you ought to net your
money on the spot. Br.t, you see, the
foroman hain't got it."
Tho policeman gave his thumb a jerk
toward the street, tho young Italian took
tho hint and with a sorrowful but re?
signed air started on his mission to the
"I think my view of tho justice of
the situation was right," said tho offi
oer a moment, later, "but bow could the
fellow not bis money from a man who
didn't have it ? Anyhow, [saved a rum?
pus." fc-o ho did.?Now York Tribune.
The Sight of Birds.
Birds are commonly credited with an
extraordinary rnugo of vision. Circum?
stances lend aid to the development of
tho mental factors in their case. The
usual distance at which terrestrial
species uso their eyes is limited by tho
ground horizon. But in tho case of tho
soaring birds, such as vultures and
eagles, tlio horizon, the natural limit of
sight, is enormously extended.
Mucgillivray early noted that though
birds of prey have orbits of great size?
tho cyobnll of tho common buzzard bo
ing 1 Ja inches in diameter?they do
not, as a rule, soar when seeking their
The eaglo when hunting flies low,
just as do tho sparrow hawk and the
henharrier. Yet the vultures: and con?
dors, birds which admittedly do soar
when seeking food, have been proved to
find carrion by sight. A carcass was
covered with canvas and somo offal
placed upon it. The vultures saw this,
descended and ntoit and then sat on the
covered portion within a few indies of
a putrid carcass. When a bole was mado
in the covering, thoy saw and attacked
the food bolow. But tho rapid congre?
gation of vultures from a distance to a
carcass is probably duo to thoir watch?
ing their neighbors, each of which is
surveying a limited area. Charles Dar?
win pointed out that in a level country
tho height of sky commonly noticed by
amounted man is not more than 15
degrees above the horizon, and a vulture
on tho wing at tho height of between
3,000 and 4,000 feet would probably bo
two miles distant and invisible. Those
which descend rapidly and appear to
have como from beyond the iaugo of
human sight were perhaps hovering
vertically over tho hunter when ho
killed his game.?London Spectator.
The Primitive Qun.
As soon as the forces of tho explosive
gases developed by tho burning of pow?
der became known tho old style weap?
ons disappeared, and firearms took their
places. The first of the kind was a small
gun barrel fastened to a long polo and
fired with a slow mutch. Shot stones,
balls of lead, iron bolts and fireballs to
sot buildings on firo were propelled with
this apparatus. Only a short distance
could be shot with those primitive guns.
The old and clumsy siogo machines
which threw heavy stones by means of
a spring ropo woro changed into siege

BLOOD SPOT IN ITS PU?V~'
V.to "Silke" Apple Thought to Cominrm*
oruto a Murder of Long Aco.
A peculiar species of fruit is Iho
"Mike" tipple. It. has a fair skin, an
excellent Qavor ami is extensively prop?
agated in the vicinity of Norwich, Conn.
Each individual upplo exhibits somo
where in its pulp a red speck, like a
tinge of fresh blood, and thereby hangs
a strange legend.
Tho apple obtains its name from Mi
COh Rood, u farmer who lived upon tho
cutlonds of tho Connecticut town in tho
eighteenth century. Tho son of Thomas
Rood, ono of Norwich's early Bottlers,
Micah tilled his fertile acres with nil
tho zest of youthful ambition.
But of a sudden his habits changed.
He grew idle, restless and intemperate.
He lost all interest in both work and
worship. His cattle were neglected and
Iiis neighbors shunned. Some attributed
the change to witchcraft. Others hinted
Winter wore away, spring returned,
and tho orchard of Micah Rood burst
into blossom. On one tree, it was then
observed, the flowers had turnen from
whito to red. The superstitious neigh?
bors wondered,especially as Rood seemed
drawn to this tree by some resistless
fascination. August came and the red
blossoms developed into fruit. When
tho large yellow apples fell from the
branches, each ono was found to con?
tain a well defined globule, known
thereafter us "the drop of blood."
The freak of the apple tree deepened
the mystery of Micah's behavior. Con?
jecture followed surmise, und soon it
was rememberi d that during tho pre?
vious fall a foreign peddler had passed
through Norwich and had spent the
night at Micah Rood's. He had never
been seen again. Some ono suggested
that l lie young farmer had murdered
him for his money and buried the body
under tin? apple troe.
Search was made for the body of tho
stranger, but in vain. Nor was uuy
trace of his stock found among tho
possessions of the unhappy Micah. If a
load of crime rested upon the conscienco
of the suspected farmer, it never forced
a confession from his lips. His farm
drifted gradually to decay, and, too
broken down to reclaim it, lie wander?
ed about town, disordered in mind and
He died in 1728, but whilo tho blood

name and history will be perpetuated.

LI HUNG CHANG CARRIED HER.
China's Viceroy Took Literally an InTita,
lion to Kscort a I.itily.
Speaking of the first meeting of Li
Hung Chang und .lohn W. Foster, on
which occasion the Chinese viceroy en?
tertained n woman at dinner for tho
first time in tho person of Mrs. Foster,
the Washington Capital vouches for tho
following story, which is ono of tho
best illustrations of true oriental cour?
tesy, combined with tho pecnliar serious?
ness and matter of factuess of tho Chi
ueso mind, ever related:
When she was introduced to the vice?
roy, Mrs. Foster wondered how she was
to be taken into tho banquet room.
Some time before, it seems, Li Hung
Chang had been guest of honor at u din?
ner given by tho Russian embassador,
and being asked to take tho embassador's
wife, to the dining room, pioccedod to
comply with a literaluess which aston?
ished all the guests. Tho viceroy is a
giant iu stature, and the embassador's
wife being a small woman, ho had 110
difficulty in picking her up bodily and
carrying her to tho table.
Mrs. Froster did not yearn for such
honor and called upon her husband's
diplomacy to arrange thatsho should be
escorted in a less vigorous manner. Mr.
Foster's tact was equal to tho occasion,
and when tho doors wcro thrown open
Li Hung Chang led the way, and Mrs.
Foster followed him.

philosopher, wore often ruthlessly sar?

"It is as you see," replied Turgot,

"You remind ino of tho titatno of

"you aro right, poet, tho statue had

warmly, "remember that, a head of
