OopirliM.HW.b? Tb. Prx Sable Island's Change of Shape. Perhaps the most remarkable feature Of all about Sable Isla ntl is tbe rapidity with which its size and position have been and still are changing. On the earliest known charts, which were French, it was laid down as being for ty-four miles long aud two and a quar ter miles wide. In 177(? it had shrunk to thirty-one miles by two, und bad moved seve? il miles to the eastward. Briefly, it is traveling eastward so fast that topographers must revise their work often to koop track of it. The latest charts aro always some miles out I of the way. Within one hundred years | it has not only decreased about one third in length and breadth, hut baa! also bren leveled down from nearly two hundred feet to about eighty foot, while the west end bas changed irs position by twenty-five miles, com pelling tile buildings of the life savers to lie moved frequently to escape from ibo encroaching seas. If the process of shrinkage continues, the time is gradually coming when Sable Island, thc meeting place of the Arctic cur rent, the Gulf Stream ami tho current from the (Juif of St. Lawrence, will succumb entirely to the terrific whirl pool in which it exists, and the waves will wash over the inst spot of dry sand in the "Graveyard of the Atlan tic."-New York Tribune. Housekeeping in thc Philippines. Tt is not a difficult matter for a Fili pino couple to set up housekeeping after marriage. The native shacks or bungalows are curious-looking affairs, built entirely of bamboo, thatched with Danana leakes and Invariably set up on stilts of bamboo six or ten feet above the ground. The interior of the house is divided into *.wo or three rooms, one of which is usually reserved as a chapel or prayer room. The household goods of these people are few. A grass mat serves for a bed; half a dozen cal abashes or earthenware pots for cook ing purposes and for the storage of rain water, and possibly one or two pictures cut from some illustrated pa per complete the furnishing of a Fili pino's home. They invariably keep children, pips and at least three dogs, but thc most prized of all is the plumed and petted fighting cock of the Fili pino. This bird is fed on ibo best, has a bamboo house for himself and is the pride and hoast of the whole family. Gentleman.

He de clared his ability to find a shorter pas-age to the East than any known to the Porlugne c, and would prove lilli? the Moluccas, rich spice islands, were within Spanish te ri tory. Charles V had a small licet fitted out and sent Magellan willi bis companion iu charge, well equipped for those days. He went south against the express stipulations of the treaty and discov ered the straits which bear his name. His fleet crossed thc broad southern ocean, passed tbs Ladrones, and the then nnkuown Philippine?, inspected the Moluccas and returned by way of Capo of Good Hope.

He concealed the fact that the number of miles in a degree of longitude de creases towards the pole. Portugal protested and declared war, which cont inned two years, when the celebrated "Congress ol' Notabilities" was held in a small frontier town to discuss tho matter and discover the real facts. Portugal was at a mani fest disadvantage. Magellan was the first and only man who bad sailed ?Hound the world, and his map of the southern seas was the only document extant. Spain refused to give up her alleged rights and Portugal held on to the islands. 'J he matter was finally compromised by an indemnity of ooo cruzados of the gold of Molucca, which Portugal paid to Spain for the supposed 47 1-2 degrees of Spanish sea which she held. A new line was drawn frome pole to pole, starting front the La hones. This division gave to Portugal all west and south of the line, which was supposed to be 180 degrees from the other line drawn, 36J leagues west of Cape de Verde.

This period is known in Portuguese history as the "Sixty Years of Captivity. " When Portugal finally regained her independence sim was much weakened, and was more interested iii settling the boundaries north and south of her valuable South Ameiican colonies, so Hie Philippines remained with Spain through laches rather than by right.

Delius nn<l Karly Civilisation, A solution of the problem why the earliest known civilizations - those of Babylonia, Egypt and China -should all have made their appear ance in the deltas of great rivers has at last been suggested. It has been shown that clay, which for practical purposes is insoluble in water, will nevertheless combine with it to a cer tain extent, remaining in a state of suspension known as colloidol or gel atinous. In this condition it has the curious property of absorbing like a sponge any cry s talizabl exalts, as, for instance, those of nitrogen. But if into the water containing this colloidal clay a solution of common snit be poured, the clay, with the nitrogenous salts that it holds like a trap, will in stantly be thrown down as a woolly precipitate. Now, this is exactly what happens with a great river like the Nile. During its periodic floods it holds iu : olntion n large quantity of colloidal " ?y. Tb'. clay in its turn attracts from iLu air quautities of the nitrogen, which is, as Sir William Crookes has lately informed us, the life of plants. On meetiug the salt water of the sea this clay, with its im prisoned nitrogen, is thrown and re mains behind as a delta composed of the ideal soil for the raising of cereals. And that the introduction of cereals has always been the first condition of civilized life needs no demonstration. The traditions of every nation have al ways made their civilizer or "culture god" the person who first taught them agriculture.-Pall Mall Gazette; Im per viona to a Joke.

The contest of high quality and original efforts, which give universal satisfaction, against the cheap and meretricious imitations will ewer continue, and the greatest protection against mercenary dealers, is in being well informed. In the medicinal sphere the Well-known laxative remedy, Syrup of figs, manufac tured by thc California Fig Syrup Co., is u_-ed by many who ar? enjoying good health and by many ochers who are seek ing health, and this is true to so great an extent that it is often called the remedy of the healthy. The excellence of ?yrup of Figs is due not only to the originality and sim plicity of thc combination, hut also the cur? and skill with which it is manufactured by scientific processes known only to the California Fig Syrup Co. Therefore we wish to im press on all thc Importance of accepting tho true and original remedy only, "When buying note the full name California Fig Syrup Co.-printed on the front of every . package, as there are many imitations sold under similar names and the imitations are really injurious to the sys 1em. The true and iginal remedy, Syrup of Figs, is manu factured by the California Fig Syrup Co. only, and when you see tho name of any other Fig Syrup Co. printed on any pack age you may know that it is a fictitious company and has no real existence, and that the dealer who offers it to you is seeking by cunning and misrepresentation to take advantage of you in order to.make a larger profit. Tho botter class of druggists are men of high integrity, attending strictly to business day and night and willing to make- great 'sacrifices. If necessary, to supply their custom ers with the best of everything in their Mue, knowing the fm po fi ?ficc to health of doing so. and valuing the patronage of their friends and patrons and desiring their confidence. Druggists of that class do not try to sell something else when you ask for Syrup ot Figs. They give you the genuine remedy manufactured by the California Fig Syrup Co. only. When desiring physicians' prescriptions filled, or pure drugs rind chemicals, proprietary medicines and fine toilet articles, ypxi may rely upon them: but as in other callings some black sheep may lie found, so among druggists there are some who will try to impose upon and deceive their customers when they can. and itt order that all who are well informed may know them and avoid them we are publishing the facts. CALIFORNIA FJ<3 SYRUP CO., Louisville, Ky. San Fraucisco, Cal. Stew York, X. Y. 1 lo., AN AMATEUR DETECTIVE'S BLUNDER. fits Pot of Red P?lot Fell od the Wron* Man. "My first experience as d thief catch er," said the detective, as he smiled softly to himself, '.came when I was a young lad on iny father's farm. My father kept a large number of t hickens of which lie was extremely proud, as thpy were high-bred and the only ones in the neighborhood. "One morning several of them were missing, a fact which caused my fath er to say things that he never used in ordinary conversation. It WIIS plain that a two-legged thief, and not an ani mal, had taken Hiern, as there were a number of foot prints around the hen house. "Several days later a number of oth ers disappeared, and then my father was wild-eyed. He bought a savage dog that was warranted to cat a man on ?he slightest provocation, and turned him loose at night. He also borrowed a bear trap from one of the neighbors, and set it near the doorway of the hen house. But ir. was all in vain, lt was only a matter of a few bights when a mi m ber more hens disappeared, with no signs of the thief. "lt was then that my detective abil ity began to develop by laying plans to catch the thief. One Sunday night, while my folks were at church. I-con ceived a plan that I thought might T?ork. I secured a pot of red paint from the barn and fixed lt over the doorway of the hen-house in such a manner that it would be sure to fallon any one opening the door. Then 1 had figured that it would ouly^be necessary to look for sonic ono covered with red paint to be sure of the thief. ""But my dream of looking for a man covered with red paint was short lived. My father returning from church hap pened to go out to thc hen-house to see If everything was all right. He opened the door to look inside, and got the contents of the paint pot over his head. This so startled him that he forgot about the bear trap until he had put his foot in it, and had it closed up on j him with a snap.
