For days millions of robins flew southbound over Yuba, Nevada, and Placer Counties, California, in succes sive great clouds, recently. At night they alighted on trees, schrubs and rocks, and at daybreak resumed their flight. Nothing has ever been seen in California like It. Perhaps they don't like earthquakes. When is a fiddle a vdolln? The Judi cial minds of the New York general board of appraisers have reached a conclusion as to what constitutes the difference between a fiddle and a violin. It la the matter of cost, the decision toeing that instruments which cost less than two marks about 48 cents are fiddles, being toys, tout that any costing more than that sum are violins, being musical Instruments. New Haven and New York are not the only places where there Is real So ciety, The Edgefield (S. C.) Chronicle thus describes a local social function: "Mrs. Pod Ruggles, who lives down on Pea Ridge, has become quite a social lioness. She gave a sassafras tea and pigs' feet luncheon last night to the ladles of the Jesokus Society, and It was quite a swell affair. She wore her tailor made suit and benecia diamond earbobs, and presided with the grace of a queen. These Pea Ridge social func tions are becoming much talked about in neighboring towns." ' Sir Henry Hazier, who has Just retir ed from Lloyds after thirty-two years' service, said that the most disastrous day at sea he could remember was in October, 1881, when 108 vessels were posted as lost In twelve hours. When a vessel Is lost It is announced by the tolling of the bell which hangs beside the crier's box. It is tolled once when a vessel Is lost, twice when a missing vessel comes to port. The bell belonged to the Lundine, a vessel which went down In the Zudyer Zee over a century ago with a million and a half in coin on board, out of which less than a million was -wrenched from the Jaws of the sea. Dr. Naohtlgal, the celebrated African explorer said to a youth who express ed a sentimental desire to cross the Sahara on camel back: "Young man, 1'H tell you how you can get a par tial Idea of what riding a camel In an African desert Is like. Take an office stool, screw It up as high as possible ami put it, along with a savage dog, Into a wagon without any springs, Then seat yourself on the stool and Jiava It ovef uneven and rocky ground trlng the hottest parts of July and lAuguat, being careful not to eat or drink more than once every two days find letting the dog bite you every four (hours. This will give you a faint idea of the exquisite poetry of camel rid ing In the Sahara." In the last year the revenues of Pres ident Diaz's government Increased ?3,- '00,000, the capital of the chartered Ibanks expended $20,000,000 In the same time, or 30 per cent., and their re serves made a similar big gain, while their loans doubled. There was a large Increase in her industries and com merce. Even agriculture, the oldest end most widely extended of all Mex- . ico's activities, was promoted to an ex tent unknown in any previous year. Over $150,000,000 of foreign capital was added to the amount placed In produc tive enterprises in Mexico during the year. A large part of this was con tributed by the United States, but Eng land, Germany and France were repre sented In it. In fact, French capital has 'been pouring into Mexico in the past year in a stream which has sur prised that country.

Rum helps others. lAbstinence from worry Is another device. But per haps the slickest way has been adopted by Louis Peristeln, who has just died in New York In his 112th year. Mr. Perlstein came to this, country over for ty years ago. He had been a tailor (but the free -air of this country Invited him to repose, and after landing in New York and noticing how much money every one else had, he decided to live on it. For more thai) forty years he did nowork; he drank and smoked in moderation, and he stubbornly refused to take medicine. He attributed his years to abstinence from work. Those who are "trying to live long without work will be much encouraged by Mr. Perlstein's career. Had he formed the habit of not working earlier in life he might have lived much long er. Many In this country have formed it early, and we may expect some start ling records if Mr. Perlstein's theory is right. Father may be wiser than he has been credited with being. STIZZ ON HIS THRONE, They are not deposing our King Cotton quite as much . as they were. A Japanese by the name of Yoshucni Sakuri has just reached San Francisco as the representative of the cotton mer chants of Japan. He says that last year Japan used over 1,000,000 .bales of cotton (five hundred pounds to the bale); that one-fourth of this total was United States cotton, the other three fourths coming from India and other parts of Asia; and that the Asian cot ton was found to be "very inferior" to that produced in our Southern States coarser, rotting more easily, and not fit for fine work. The cotton weavers of Japan are determined to have the best cotton fiber in the world, and Mr. Sakuri is here to see about getting it. "The export of cotton fromthe United States to Japan," he says, "is bound to increase enormously In the next few years." This will encourage the cotton corner ers. It will also encourage the cotton growers. Verily, things are coming our way. This country has the stuff to sell, and the good paying customers for it. TIIET WONIBLAB. Some people who don't realize what Woman s seem to bp afraid that she wont come successfully out of a tost which she is undergoing in New York and, will undergo elsewhere. The De partment of Commerce and Labor, Bu reau of the Census, has detailed twelve of its brightest and most skillful wom en clerks to inspect the divorce rec ords of New York County for twenty years back. They have begun the in spection and under courtesy have had opened to them the sealed evidence in divorce proceedings known only before to the judges and the referees. They are to gather from the scaled evidence any facts which may have a bearing for the department on framing the pro posed bill for Federal supervision of divorces. They are not to make rec ords of any names, and anything that they may find which would be of sen sational Interest is not to pass their lips. A similar inquiry for a similar purpose is to bo made at the other divorce centers in the country. Will these women tell what they find? Of course not, except to their legal bosses. Do lawyers and doctors' stenographers "blab?" Not much, and not any that amounts to anything. Women can keep secrets well enough when they want to. e t '-ij1; LOOKING IP. It Is Interesting that just as Silver's greatest and best friend is about to put his feet on his native heath Silver is looking up, and! is likely to look up higher. The treasury department made its first weekly purchase of silver bul lion Wednesday for subsidiary coinage under, the new policy announced by the Director of the Mint last week and ap proved iby Secretary Shaw, When the tenders were opened the price of the bullion was found to be so high that only 50,000 ounces were bought. There were four tenders, the lowest being 68.62 cents an ounce. The original plan was to purchase 100,000 ounces every Wednesday, until a sufficient supply was obtained to meet the shortage in subsidiary coin, but unless the price drops the treasury will refrain from going into the market for large pur chases. It is possible that only small purchases will be made for immediate needs until congress meets, when legis lation to meet the stringency In money of small denominations may relieve the treasury from the necessity of buying largely, or prevent the market price from being bulled because the government has begun to buy.. Further tenders will be received next "Wednes day afternoon at the treasury. Mr. Bryan has seemed to think that the Increase in the supply of gold has taken the wind out of the silver ques tion, but he has also said that he is more radical than he was In 3S96 nnd has nothing to withdraw on economical questions which have been under dis cussion.

Adventure in Which a Little Fox Ter rier Saved His Master's Life. It was dark, and the windy darkness was full of the mysterious noises of the Jungles. My shikari and I were huddled silently on a platform built in the boughs of a tree on the edge of the jungle, writes a. missionary to China to the Chinese Tribune.

Just at that moment the rose and revealed to us the lithe bady of a panther slinking through the un- dergrowth. A shot rang out and with a yeip of pain the panther disappeared into the bushes. With the sunrise we descended (mm the platform and began to examine the panther's trail. The effect of the shot was shown by the patches of blood on the ground, which led us thmneh n couple hundred yards of thick jungle. AAiter crawling on hands and knees under the brushwood we reached a narrow nullah. A Alittle beyond this we came upon the wounded panther scaling a tree.

The pan ther entered the nullah at the center of the bend and turned alone the left arm, growling angrily as it covered the ground in heavy strides. We kept about twentv vards from the nulla h and skirted it along the right until the iop or the ibend was reached. Here a halt was made, while I approached the nullah, the panther growling away at the other end, about two hundred yards distant. . Then all wa3 still. The animal seemed to have vanished.

SCENE FOR A PAINTER. How President Fallieres Received the St. Louis Exposition Medal. One of the most graceful acts of the managers of the St. Louis Exposition, which was held two years ago, was the award of a handsome medal to. the President of France, the country from which came the great region the fair was held to commemorate. When the big show was closed and the details of settlement were all adjusted somebody thought that the medal had not yet been formally presented to the French Executive. A happy Inspiration sug gested that a delegation of St. Loulsans go to Paris effpecially ir this purpose. The idea was 'heartily indorsed,, and a committee was named, headed by the President of the Exposition. Such dig nified bodies move slowly, and the de legation of medal-bearers did not get oft until this summer. They traveled In the leisurely manner of men charged with a weighty responsibility. They reached Paris some days ago and enter ed upon a course of formal correspond ence , with tho French President. It takes time to arrange these weighty affairs, and at last a day was named for presentation. Tho weather was hot nd President Fallieres had retired to his summer residence, the French Oyster Bay. He agreed that It would too Infinitely the better plan to maVe the medal presented In the Elysee Palace, and set a day fi r the uncom fortablo Journey up to Paris. The members of the committee called their valets and had their silk hats ironed and their frock coats 'brushed, and saw that their red ribbon of the Legion of Honor were neatly tied In their button holes, and then on the morn of the ap. pointed day they were driven in state to the palace, perspiring, but proud and happy. The President of France came, and there was much handshaking and Th earefol etudy of eaefi Individual flgr ure Is what ho made the Todd cornet such a success.

Finally came the psycholo gical moment for the presentatln . Members of the committee looked at each other Inquiringly. A blank expres slon fwas on every face. Colloars wilted ' Where was the medal? It was not to ', be found. A few whispers and the woe ful fact was disclosed that it had been forgotten. Yes, forgotten, iln the anx iety over silk hats and frock coats and red ribbons. The moment was fraught with infinite possibilities of tragedy. Shamefacedly the spokesman turned to the President of France and assured him that there really was a medal but that the committee could not Immediat ly produce it. Would the President of France be assured that there was a medal? Would he consent to recleve it later? Would he forgive the contre temps? Would he, etc., etc.? Of course he would. President FalUerea of France is, above all, a man blessed With a sense of humor and, assuring his guests that such things happen every day in France and that he cher ished their visit far, far more than the mere bit of metal, he led them off to a cooler spot and the ice was broken. Now the Parisians are looking for an artist with the genius to paint a pic ture of that historic scene depicting the president of France receiving tho American medal he aid not get. Washington Star.
