THE ARIZONA REPUBLICAN TIIURSDAY MORNING, AUGUST 27, 1896. BOOK LOVER. Witty Retort of a Priest to a Vulgar ana Ostentations Parishioner. Concerning the celebrated Father Darcy, probably the greatest wit of that witty nation, Ireland, it is re lated, says the Milwaukee Journal, that he once visited the palatial mansion of a perfect specimen of the nouveaux riches who lived in the neighbor hood of Dublin at the invitation of its pompous owner. He was shown all over the house, his host taking great pains, as is habitual in such cases, to keep the witty and observant priest well in formed as to the cost of all the beauti ful thing's he was shown. Finally, after making the complete tour of the chateau, the library was reached, its tremendous shelves groaning under the weight of thousands upon thousands of volumes, resplendent in the most magnificent bindings. Here they seat ed themselves, and the host said, with a sigh of snobbish exultation : "Well, father, I have brought you here last because this is my favorit-j room. The other rooms maybe give pleasure to my wife and my daughters, but this is my place right here among these books, who are my friends. And these here on the desk (pointing to a score of ultra-looking volumes), are what I may call my intimate friends." Father Darcy got up and examined one of them, when a broad grin spread! over his good-natured face, as he said: "Well, it's glad I am to see that you never cut your intimate friends." CAMEL'S EXPERIENCE. Bat Down So Hnch That Eli Hind Legs ' Became Cseless. ' A large camel which was landed at Hoboken a few days ago from the Bremen line steamer Dresden had an experience which probably neverx be fore fell to the lot of "a ship of the des ert." He made the voyage in a large box, and as there wasn't room enough in it for any self-respecting animal the camel sat down in sheer disgust. He sat that way for days and days while the ship rolled and made all sorts of heavy weather. When the dejected animal was finally landed and tried to stand up, he couldn't use his rear props at all. They had be come paralyzed from their long stay in a cramped position. The camel wasn't any good, it seemed, and as a big price had been paid for him there was gen eral lamentation. The camel was "in" on the lamentation. Such a picture cf woe was never seen in Hoboken. At last a genir 'ietTested a radi cal cure. The camel', by his advice, was placed in a sling and hoisted up until only his toes touched the ground. He paddled the air for a spell with his forelegs, and finally the rear props came to life and joined in the exercise. They lowered him to the floor, and o f tot Tiu Vi a I tactful Ti ! c Iaivd i-nynn what gingerly, he was as good as new. But he doesn't sit down any more. Once was enough for him. OLD LiuninOUSE. Was Built by the Romans and Is 8tlll In Good Condition. The oldest ihouse existing in Eng land is the Roman Pharos or lighthouse, which still forms so conspicuous an ob ject on the cliffs within the precincts of Dover castle. The masonry of this interesting work is composed of tufa, cement and Roman bricks, or tiles, and is in the best style of Roman workman ship. History and tradition are alik! silent as to the actual date of its erec tion, but, judging from the style of masonry, and bearimrm mind that, thu erection of such a beacon would be a practical necessity when once the Bo- mans nan thoroughly established them selves in southern Britain, one mav fairly ascribe it to a date not much later xnan tne middle ot tlie first century, A, D following- on the expedition of Clan. dius, and the succeeding conquests of Plautius, who brought niost of the island south of- the Thames under the Eoman domination. To the of this lighthouse was added in Tudor times an octagonal superstructure, still remaining, although in a sadly bat tered condition. The remains of lake dwellings, such as have been found at Burton Mere, in Suffolk, and near Glas tonbury, in Somerset, are supposed by some to aate Dack so far as 1200 B. C; but, although these are built they "hardly come within the meaning w me question. COLOR OF WOMEN'S EYES. The Here Question of Pigment Has Set tied Blauy a Alan's Fate. Did you ever notice that men always instinctively put confidence in a girl with blue eyes, and have their sus picions of the girl with brilliant black ones, and will you kindly tell me why? asks a writer m the Ladies Home Jour nal. Is it that the limpid, blue eye-, transparent and gentle, suggests all the soft, womanly virtues, and because he thinks he can see through it, clear down into that blue-eyed girl's soul, that she is the kind of a girl he fancies she is? I think it is, but some of the greatest little frauds I know are the purry, kitteny girls with the big inno cent blue eyes. Blazing black eyes, and the rich, warm colors, which dark skinned women have to wear suggest energy and brilliance and no end of intellect. Men look into such eyes and seem not to be able to see below tihe surface. They have not the pleasure of a long, deep gaze into immeasurable depths. And so they think her design ed Cl i 'vT reran 4 13 (WO. The highest claim for other tobaccos is "Just as good as Durham."

A mere question of pigment in the eye has set tled many a man s fate in life, and es tablished him with a wife who turned out to be very different from the girl he fondly thought he was getting. A GREAT SNAKE COLONY. An Australian Enthusiast Has a Fine Col lection of Venomous Reptiles. Mr. J. McGarvie Smith, an eminent bacteriologist of Sydney, Australia, is the proprietor of probably the greatest collection of snakes in the world, says the New York World. He is in the business partly for scientific purposes and partly for business. He advertised some time ago for 500 venom ous reptiles, but one publisher refused to permit the advertisement until he had satisfied himself of the sanity of the scientist. The different species of venomous snakes in Australia, so far as known, number 42, and Mr. Smith has speci mens of all of them. The poison ex tracted from the reptiles is largely used i;i the Pasteur institute in Paris. Mr. Smith is an enthusiast on the subject of snakes, and regards them as the most wonderful of living creatures. He has in his collection serpents that have gone nearly a year without food and are still fat. , He has injected some of their own poison into them without the slightest ill-effects to them. As a result of his investigations he has estab lished the fact that a non-poisonous snake is not affected in any way by the poison of the venomous species. "Why," said Smith, "it does not kill one of its own species while it is so fatal to other creatures is one of the ms'ste ries of the Almighty which we cannot unravel." Pure food. and. Drlnk The strength of cheap tea is not strength. It is weakness, and the weak ness sinks deep into your life; it becomes your weakness. You have heard doctors say that tea is constipating. So it is; because most tea is impure tea, with little tea strength in it. Most of the strength is tannin acid which you get by boiling the tea ; makes leather of the stomach. No need of tannin in' pure tea; pure tea has a good enough flavor of its own. Schillings Best money back tea, at your grocer's.

Such is the Condition of the Churchill Addition Montana 3 Total 444; necessary for choice 223. But, notwithstanding they are now in th city itself, there are a few lots for sale yet at prices corresponding with the "Sound Money Doctrine" of President Cleveland and his cuckoos, which means that kind of a dollar which will buy two dollars worth of property. These lots are near the new elec tric car line which is now in operation. The lots are in the city and their occupants do not need to ride into town, but the presence of electric street cars is popular and adds market value to the property. Inside of five years this w ill be business property. Buy a lot now for a residence and when business crowds you out the rents will sup port you in a house outside in some addition where you can keep a horse and drive into town and collect your rents.
