Street Cleaning in Jolo.
In the daytime there are always
little squads of soldiers sweepiug the
streets, and so carefully is this work
dou.T that the miniature town is as
clean as a pin. Whenever a leaf
drops some one rushes to tell the
street cleaning department, aud a
squad of men hurry to remove the
leaf. All parts of the town are scrupu
lously clean, but if any place can be
called more scrupulously cleau than a
scrupulously clean place, then it is
that part of the street just before the
door of Maria Concha’s shop. Maria
is a pretty Zamboaugueno—really the
prettiest native girl I’ve seen in the
Philippines —and as she is the only
pretty girl in Jolo, she is tremend
ously popular. The street cleaning
department spends hours sweeping
the leaves off the street in front of
her shop, and the young officers put
in much of their time sitting in her
little shop aud chatting. —Correspond

The Dnirion of 1899.
The Dawson of 1899 is no longer
the Dawson of 1898, and much less
that of the year previous. The thou
sands of bateaux that were formerly
lined up against the river front, in
rows six deep and more, and compris
ing all manner of craft from the small
canoe to sliced sections of scows, have
mostly disappeared, and in their
place we now find the graceful and
ungraceful forms of varying tyjies of
steamboat. It is no uncommon thing
nowadays to find five or more of these
larger craft tied up at one time to the
river front, and the amplitude and
majesty of the Mississippi boats gain
but little in a comparison with some
of these larger craft of the Yukon
river. Overhung signs call attention
to the flying queens of the river, the
Bonanza King, Canadian and Sibyl,
and thousands are offered upon the
result of the race to the White Horse
Rapids. So here, as iu the olden days
of the Mississippi, the struggle for
supremacy has led to the opening ol
the throttle and to the scraping of the
fire box. Upward of a hundred ar
rivals from down the river w’ere regis
tered at % Dawson during the season of
open water in 1899. —Appletons’ Pop
ular Science Monthly.
Made Bill Too.
A small boy from the slums had
been brought into the mission school,
and for a couple of Sundays he had
been instructed iu the rudiments. The
third Sunday he brought with him his
brother William. To test his memory
the teacher began to go over the pre
vious lessons. ‘‘Who made you?” she
asked. “God,” he replied, promptly.
“Aud what else did God make?” The
youngster studied for a moment aud
looked around helplessly till he no
ticed his brother, then his face bright
ened. “He made Bill, too, I guess,”
he answered, triumphantly.

Women and Secrets.
Said the Bright Girl to her chum,
apropos of women and secrets, “Al
most any woman will hold sacred a
confidence reposed in her by a man.
Wild horses could hardly drag it from
her, and while she may be positively
dying to tell it to her nearest and
dearest, and will have to screw her
determination to the sticking point to
keep from doing so, she will succeed
in her attempt. More, I’m afraid,
because she fears such a breach of
confidence lvould injure her in his
estimation than because of any prin
ciple involved.
“Any man can trust a woman who
likes him with even a momentous
secret, but I wouldn’t advise another
wornau to do so. I’m afraid that
sounds very uncomplimentary to my
sex, doesn’t it? Women can keep
other women’s secrets —if they want
to, but usually the confidences poured
into their ears are so unimportant, so
much a matter of what Johu said on
this and that occasion or where the
Smiths get the money to live on, that
while the listener promises eternal
siience she forgets after a while that
she has done so, and very iunocently
repeats tho tale. Then ofteuer than
not there is a pretty row.
“A mau’s confidence is usually of
some importance, and it’s never be
trayed; a woman’s isn’t, so it ofteu is,
which proves that women can keep
secrets if they wish.
“Which one of the gentle sex has
ever been found who couldn’t be as
dumb as an oyster when it comes to
her own affairs ?’’—Baltimore News.
Merely Another Fprm of Despair.
A sharp thing well said is credited
to Bir James Stephen, au English
lawyer. A tedious woman had been
pleading with him, and he was asked
what lie hoped for her. “That she
will stop talking soon,’’said he. “But
hope is only a heroic form of despair.”

The Sirdar’s Collars.
When the Sirdar visited us it will
be remembered he wore a stand up
all round collar, which is kuowu by
various names, such as the “dragoon,”
the “Khartoum,” etc., but whatever
name it is known by to the different
makers the high stand up is the most
fashionable shape in collars today,and
is selling in much larger quantities
than auy other style since the Sirdar
set the fashion. It is certainly a smart,
military looking collar, and for that
reason alone it is quite certain to re
main very much iu vogue for a long
time to come ou account of the popu
far admiration which exists just now
lor all things military. —London Globe
Fenders for Automobiles.
Automobiles must wear fenders.
That is the purport of an ordinance
presented to the city council. All
manner of automobiles are included
in its application. The self-propelling
tally-ho-coupe and runabout are
bracketed with the department store
delivery wagon and the dray. All
fenders must be of the “basket” pat
tern and made of steel. It is further
provided that it shall be unlawful to
operate automobiles without fenders
after April 1, 1900. The penalty is a
fine of not less than $25 nor more
than $lOO for each offence.—Chicago

I Had
a Bad
“I had a bad cough for six
weeks and could not find any
relief whatever. I read what a
wonderful remedy Ayer’s Cherry
Pectoral was for coughs and I
bought a bottle. Before I had
taken a quarter of it my cough
had entirely left me.”—L. Hawn,
Newington, Ont., May 3,1899.
Cures Colds
Neglected colds always lead
to something serious. They
run into chronic bronchitis which
pulls down your general health
and deprives you of sleep; or
they end in genuine consump
tion with all its uncertain results.
Don’t wait, but take Ayer’s
Cherry Pectoral just as soon as
you begin to cough. A few
doses will cure you then. But
it cures old colds, too, only it
takes a little more time. We
refer to such diseases as bron
chitis, asthma, whooping-cough,
consumption, and hard winter
If you’ve just taken cold a 25 cent bot
tle is all you’ll need. For harder cases a
60 cent bottle is better. For chronic
troubles, and to keep on hand, the $l.OO
bottle is most economical.
“My wife had pimples on her face, but
she has been taking CASCAKETS and they
