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.

Romantic Voyage of Magellan Which
ICesnlted in Their Discovery-lint for
an Accident They Might Have Fallen
Int? tho Hund? of Great Britain?
We who see Portugal in the period
of. her docay and almost total eclipse
cannot uudci-stand how so small a
nation, occupying so insignificant a
portion of Europe, "only a veranda "
as one of her writers has said-should
cut so important a figure id the
w rld's history as alie did iii the fif
teenth and sixteenth centuries-.
Early in the eleventh century Prince
Henry, "the navigator,'' of Portugal,
obtained from Po, J Eugenius IV a
bull which gave to Portugal all dis
coveries between Cape Hun, in Mo
rocco, and India. lu 1-472, St.Thomas
Annobou and Prince's islands Wef?
added. When .the equator was passed
and Fernando Po gave his name toan
island : ie Bight of Biefra he seized
?0J leagues of the African coast and
the Kiug of Portugal took the title of
"Lord of Gu i neu. "
Very early in the days of discovery
and conquest, toward the end of the
fifteenth century, tilt most Catholic
sovereigns of Spain, Eerdiuaud and
Isabella, and his equally Catholic
majesty, John II of Portugal. Icll but
about the ownership at lund yet t? be
discovered-.
Like faithful children of the chiirch
they referred the whole matter to the
Ho?y Eather at Pome, Pops Alexan
der VI, a Spaniard, who cut th?
Gordian knot by giving them the ea"th
and setting thr limits of their respec
tive possessions, Ail imaginary line
was to hs drawn from bole to bole, 100
degrees went ?Nf thc Azores or the
Cape de Verde tslnnds; all west of
this island was to belong to Spain,
and all east of it to Portugal. King
John was not satisfied, and the treaty
of Tor dosel has was made in 1494, giv- ,
ing to Portugal all lands east of an
imaginary line drawn 360 leagues
from the most western point of the
Cape de Verde islnnds and all south
of the Cape of Good Hoj e, To Spain
wa* allotted td! lands went of this fiilej
ignoring completely all other nations-.
Fernaudo de MftgalbaeS, .br-, as we
PS we write it, Ferdinand Magellan-,
and Kuy Falciiojioth Portuguese sub
jects, who had difference* with their
king on account v>t' some petty p'cn:
sums-, offer? I their services lo Spain,
lioth had served t\Yo years with Al
buquerque, and knew ?-ll About tile
Portuguese possession's in the east.
Magellan represented to Charles V.
who tiiert Vuled over Spain, that he
was sure the world was round-a
theory then credited by few. 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.
Magellan lost his life, and ont of
five vessels which comprised his fleet)
only ono returned) Under the conti*
mand of Sebastian del Cauo, who j
brought Magellan's written report of
the expedition aud a map of tho route, j
showing thai ali of the spice islands
and the whole of the Indian oc?ail
were within the 180 degrees belong
ing to Spain under the treaty of Tor
deselhas. lu the map Magellan had
deliberately cut 40 degrees of longi
tude and brought the whole archipela
go within Spain's half of the world.
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 treaty was approved by Pope
.Julian Ii iu the bull, En quoe pro bono
pacis, and the matte1, vas settled
Years nfterw??"1 a Spanish expedi
tion '.. - I the Philippines, so
named after Philip ll, who ?as thou
King of Spain. These islands, though
many degrees within Portugal's line,
were taken possession of by Spain.
Portugal protested, aud would un
doubtedly have obtained possession
of them had it not been for the disas
ter to the Portuguese arms iu Africa,
which threw Portugal into the hands
of Spain, where she remained for
sixty years. 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.
Had Portugal retained them it is more
than likely that thev, like many other
of her Eastern .possessions, would
have f.illen into the hands of the Eng
lish, and their whole -history would
have been changed.

Delius nn<l Karly Civilisation,
A solution of the problem why

those of Babylonia, Egypt and China

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.

resolved on a coup d'etat to save the
situation.
The court of chartered money chang
ers met lu Threadneedle .-treet. and re
solved that the bills should not be dis
charged unless money was sent down
for the purpose. The meaning of such
a resolution, as those versed lu thc

that the government could not meet

The king and the ministers were

course by which the country could be

IS GREATLY ENHANCED by knowledge of the world's
best products, which contribute most effectually to per
sonal comfort and health. 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.

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. That awoke the dog |
and he seized the other leg. j
"His cries brought the household out
on a run. We managed to get him
loose and over to the horse trough,
where we washed off what we could of
the red paint, and 1 gave up my efforts
to catch that particular thief."
