When the kol floats from its bamboo pole it means trouble is brewing In Japan. The kol Is a paper fish brave In purple and gold, orange and black, so skillfully made that the wind, Inflating it, sets it swirling and swerving as If alive with an energetic Happing of Its fins. A fisherman will tell you that it represents the carp, that mighty swim mer which makes its way upstream against all obstacles. A poet will af firm that the kol typifies predominance. It is all one and the same. When the fish floats over a Japanese dwelling it announces the birth of a male child, but when war Is imminent or In prog ress the streets of the cities are gay with the polychromatic emblem flaunt ing and flashing before the door of every loyal household. This is equiva lent to the display of bunting In the Occident when troops go forth to war. Mongolian Sheep Killer. A recent traveler in Mongolia writes: "On arrival in camp a sheep is killed for the stranger's benefit. It is worth going to Mongolia to eat mutton, which is unlike any oilier in my experience. No traveler who has written on the country fails to mention it. Mission aries, rroleslant and Catholic alike, refer to lis succulence. The method of killing sheep is curious and unpleas ant. The animal Is thrown on its back, when the butcher makes an incision In Its belly, into which lie thrusts his hand, where he presumably Bevers an artery, as death ensues and the car cass is suffused with blood. He then takes a ladle and transfers the blood to a receptacle at his side. No drop is spilled." Memory. The different kinds of memory are described In an extended article In Cos mos, Paris. It Is noted that some chil dren, when they learn a lesson, have only to read it over a few times; others will not remember it unless they have heard it recited; others must repeat it ulond to themselves.

Alphonse Karr'i Dr. On the wall in the study of Alphonse Karr's dwelling there used at one time to linng a dagger. Karr In one of his stories had poked a good deal of fun at a woman named Colet Mme. Colet, enraged at being made a butt of, stabbed Karr. He on his recovery hung the dagger she had stabbed ului with above his desk, with this Inscrip tion beneath it: 'Presented to Alphonse Karr by Mme. Colet In the back." A Deep Sea Vampire. Au exquisite sea flower, something like an aster, grows at great depths In the ocean.

Do Foe, the author of "Hoblnson Cru soe," traveled through the great east ern marshes of England In 17-2. He records that In that "damp part of the world" It was common to meet with a man who had bad from five to fifteen wives. Indeed he says that some had more. Ie Foe adds that a merry fellow, who had himself had about a score of wives, told him that the men of the marshes, being seasoned to the damp climate, took little harm from It, but that they went Into the "hilly country" for their wives. "When they took the young lasses out of tne wnoiesome and fresh air, they were healthy, fresh and clear and well. But when they nine out of their native air Into the marshes among the fogs and damp, there they presently changed their complexions, got an ague or two and seldom held It above half a year or a year at the most." tine wife was sac rificed, another was procured, and so the process went on. Do Foe is careful to state that his merry Informer "lib bed a little," at least concerning his own wives, but he declares that the general statement Is perfectly trne. A Finn With Hands. Zoologists have long regarded the fish which remains for days out of wa ter and climbs trees as one of the strangest departures from nature, but the most wonderful of these Is the perl- ophthai-.nr.s of the west African coast. It not only is at much at home on land as In water, but climbs the inuiigrove roots and takes long Journeys about the swamps on them and builds itself mud houses raised above the surface. with a:i opening at the t p, from which Its bulging eyes stare out at every alarm. For this life the fish Is fitted with long arms, with elbow and wrist. while the lingers are separated and prehensile, instead of being fiat and finliUe. These hands In the African specks liild the mangrove roots In climbing and are the means of propul sion through the mud. The round eyes project from the skull and can be turn ed In every direction: hence the Ciivek name, which may be freely translated rolling eyes." Wellington an a Scoot. The Duke of Wellington, according to CJ. It. (ilelg s reminiscences, was ignorant of most things and seemed In capable of learning. Once, for instance, ho asked Arbutlmot how turnips propa gated, whether by seed or by cuttings like potatoes. But he was a scout! Once upon a time he and Lrokcr be guiled a drive by guessing the nature of the country beyond the hills which they mounted. The duke's guesses w ere always correct, and Croker at last ask ed the reason. "The reason?" replied the duke. "Why, what have I been doing the greater part of my life ex cept that which we are doing now- trying to make out front what I saw the shape of the country which I could not see?" Great Sunken Lake. In the Cascade mountains, about sev enty-five miles east of Jacksonville, Ore., the seeker of the curious will find the (ireat Sunken lake, the deep est lake In the world, so far as Its sit uation Is concerned, for It Is said to average 2.000 feet down to the water on all sides. The depth of the water Is unknown, and Its surface Is smooth and unruffled by the strongest winds. It is about fifteen miles In length and lour and one-half wide. For unknown ages It has lain still, silent and mys terious lu the bosom of the great moun tain range, as though scooped out by the hand of a giant genie. Where Woman Is Herole. The determination to do her duty at all costs Inspires the society woman of today as much as It did the defenders of the British flag at Trafalgar. She goes Into action with a grim resolve to dance and dine ns all her friends ex pect. Though her back Is aching, her head splitting and she knows she is grewsomely bore;!, she will heroically go through her day's programme, forti fied by the consciousness of having done her duty. Ladles' Field. Woanda Dressed With Dnrnt Straw. At a cost of about 2Ti cents Japaneso doctors can dress the wounds of 5(H) men.

One of the most delightful of story tellers tuot a prevaricator, but a ra conteur) Is Sir Faudel Phillips, Bart In consequence he is very much in demand as an after-dinner story-teller, and, while his witty yarns lose much lu the retelling, because the chief charm lies In his inimitable power of Imitation, yet one of Faudel Phillips's yarns Is always sure to be the topic of conversation for days after It has been told. His latest is something like this: "Some years ago 1 happened to be In one of the small chambers of the Guildhall for some purpose or another, which I had forgotten for the mo ment, when an old Irishman, hat In hand, walked In. After a moment's critical survey of my aldermanio robes, he walked up to me and asked; " Ms this the lord mayor?' " i am sorry to say It is not." "Are ye the mayor's slcretary, thin?' "Again I expressed my sorrow at the unkindness of Fate. The old man fumbled with his hat, and started to walk away; but upon second thought returned and asked: " 'Are yez. thin, Implicated with the mayor's ollUe In anny way?" , Exchange. Surprise Floored Him. "Sir." said the Walbrook man, as he entered the drug store.

A, lady who was In Port Arthur dur ing the bombardments by Admiral To go's fleet thus describes the curious effect produced on cats by the can nonade: "I was at my window during each bombardment by the Japs, but only through the day, because at night did not dare stir out of bed. In front of me there was a little roof on which five or; six cats of the neighbor hood collected. Each time there was a bombardment the cats duly arrived, nnd, having observed them, I on the second occasion proceeded to watch theiu. With my family we passed the hours looking at theiu. At each gun shot the cats arched their backs and stiffened their legs and seemed both terrified nnd furious. Then when a hissing shell nrrived It gave the signal for a frightful battle. They Jumped at each other, raging like tigers, and seemed to hold each other responsible tor what was taking place. The effect was so comical that we could not help laughing, although the occasion did not Inspire gayety. After having fought, the cats retired for awhile, as though bewildered, but as soon as the bombardment began again they went through the same business. Each time It was always the same." Lett on the Cobbler's llnnils. Pointing to a row of dusty shoes on a shelf, the customer asked the cob bler: "How In the world did you collect all those shoes? Do you mean to say that people leave their shoes for re pairs and theu never come after them?" "Just that, replied the cobbler. Sometimes after they have left their shoes they come to the conclip ion that thev'd rather spen.l a little more money and get a new pair outright. Then again If they have a lot of shoes they don't miss the pair they've left In here, and, they forget all about them. It's generally men who do thitt sort of thing, though. A woman seems to be more provident. "No; the work on them Is n:t a dead loss to me, for after keeping them a year I generally offer them f ir sale at a price in advance of the value of my work on them. Sometimes I reap quite n little money from my sale of deserted shoes, and ninny a poor person gets a slick shoe for about a third less than Its worth," New York Press. A Good Samaritan. A southern writer tells this story of a negro preacliers version oi tne para ble of the good S::tnarltan: There was traveler on a lonely road, said the preacher, who was set upon by thieves, robbed and left wounded and helpless by the wayside. As he lay there vari ous persons passed him, but none of fered to assist him. Presently, how ever, a poor Samaritan cnine by and, taking pity on the wounded man's plight, helped him on his mule and took him to an Inn, w here he ordered food nnd drink nnd raiment for the man, directing the innkeeper to send the bill to him. "And ills am a true story, brethren," concluded the preach er, "for de Inn am stamlln' dero yet. nnd In de do'way am stnndin' de skel'- ton ob de Innkeeper, waltln' fer do good Samaritan to come back an' pay de bill."
