When congress convenes after
the holiday recees opponents of
statehood must be prepared to take
up the discussion. It was appar
ent yesterday that it would be im
possible to secure a quorum of
enators the rest of the week to
hear speeches. Senator Dilling

tor Quay wants to epend as much
time in Florida as possible during
the holidays and it was therefore
easy to patch up an agreement be
tween the opposition forces.
Every delay in the statehood de
bate gives the opponents of the

committees there from the terri
tories are thoroughly disgusted

LOBSTER CLIMBS TREES.

In the Eat I ndiun islands is found a
curious lobster uliicli climbs trees. Al
though jt prefer a home on land It at
times feels a longing for the water,
where it goes to moisten its gills; and
here th eggs are laid, and the young
are raited on the coast, where they
have the benefit of Rait air, always
good for children. But most of their
time is ispeut inland, living at the root
of trees where they have burrowed
deep hollows which they carpet lux
uriously with fibers stripped from co
They come out of these home at
night to climb the palm trees, for al
though it seem funny to us, their
climbing is quit a scriou business to
them since it is-in this way that they
secure the cocoanuts of w hich they are
so fond and on which they live princi
pally. To get at the content of the nut the
lobster first teare away the fiber which
covers the three "eyes." (You mutt all
have- noticed those black spots on om
end of a cocoa nut that makes it look
like the wierd face of a monkey.) It
hammer away with its claws at, thesa
spots or "eyes" until a hole is made,
when it extracts the" kernel by means
of its smaller pincers. Sometimes af
ter drilling through t.h perorated
"eye" it grasps the nut in its claws and
breaks' it against a stone.
STUCK 10 HIS EYEGLASS.
Th EnglUh Diplomat Wore It, Een
Whra Ho Was Capsized la
Recently a party from the embassies
at Constantinople went to Inspect the
international lifeboat service on tho
Black sea coast. At one of the life
saving stations they thought they
would like to test the conditions of
life-bokt work, so, clothing themselves
in bathing costumes and cork jackets.
they each took an oar in a lifeboat, to
the huge delight of the Turkish boat
men. One of the secretaries of the British
embassy is never seen without an eye
glass, and is said even to sleep with it.
On this occasion he was faithful to his
eyeglass and solemnly embarked in a
cork jacket and eyeglass. All the prop
er exercises were gone through, aud
finally the boat was capsized and
rightedagain by its own crew. As they
crept out from under the en prized boat
a howl of surprise came from the
Turks, for the secretary's head ap
peared, with the eyeglass firmly fixed
in its proper position, its owner tak
ing it as a matter of course that it
should be there.

could have he.ml them.
A short time ago someone put on the
market an ingenious device for hold
ing sheets of paper together. It took
the place of the pin, says the New York
Press. By "short time" is meant a
matter of some five or six years. To
day there are more than 20 different
kinds of clips, selling from 60 cents
per 1,000 to 25 cents per 100, and con
siderable capital is invested in their
manufacture. The same general prin
ciple is followed in all, and it is as
sumed that each improvement is pat
ented. Corporations have been
formed to make nothing but clips, aud
competition ii lively. The . original
patentee will no doubt become a mil
lionaire, though he may moke only one
