Call It Stubbornness or Prescience, or
Anything You Wish, But His Ao
tion Saved the Life of
"Everybody knows that all mules
are brainy, but the mules of Old Mexi
co have something on other mules for
a sort of prescience of their own," said
a man who has spent many years In
the neighboring republic, to a New
York Sun writer. "A Mexican mule
will do just so much work and not a
"The riding mule, for Instance, Is
fully aware of the distance, down to a
rod, he Is supposed and required to
traverse In the progress of one travel
ing day, and all the sharp sticks or
goads or dynamite on earth won't get
him to do a bit more than what he
knows to be the correct distance, The
Mexicans have a peculiar saying in
connection with tills characteristic of
the Mexican mule. You ask a Mexi
can, for Instance, how far It Is by
mulebaok to such and such a point.
" 'Two days' Journey If you are not
rushed, but three days If you are
In a hurry,' the Mexican will reply.
"His meaning Is that if you don't
ask any more of your mule than you
should ask of him the mule will be
:ibk to make the trip in two days. But
yen attempt to drive the brute he'll
soldier on you, and In consequence the
journey will take you three days.
"Now for the prescience of which I
spoke. I don't know what else to call
it. The latest Instance I saw of It
was when I was riding through the
state of Sonora a month or so ago on
old gray mule that knew every turn
ml twist of the road I was taking so
ihorouuhly that I let the bridle reins
'King mid permitted him to go it alone.
"Along toward evening a terrific
; humler storm came up. The air was
heavy with the fumes of sulphur
something I had heard about but had
never experienced before and the
crashes were deafening. The road was
rocky and bad and there was only an
occasional scrub pine alongside.
"The old gray mule, when the storm
reached Its height, stopped his jog
of a sudden and stood In the middle
of the road, peacefully enough. He
wasn't worried, apparently, but he
considered that that was a pretty good
place to stand during the continuance
of the tremendous electrical storm,
for It was out In the open.
"For myself, I wanted to get under
the shelter of a pine tree about a hun
dred yards ahead of me. But the mule
couldn't and wouldn't see that. Him
for the open, and there he stood.
"I prodded him with the spurs, but
he merely looked around at me In a
dusgusted sort of way. Then I dis
mounted and tried to lead him. Noth
ing doing. He wouldn't budge.
"So at length, giving in to him that
he knew more about it than I did. I
wrapped my poneho about my head
and stood at his fcead, waiting for the
storm to pass. I hadn't stood by the
mule in that way for more than three
minutes before I saw a couple of balls
of red Ere Dlaying around the trunk
of the pine tree that I'd wanted to get
under the shelter of. Then there
came a positively deafening crash and
when I could see again there was that
pine tree stretched across the road
and a good part of It in kindling wood.
"I suppose maybe that old gray mule
didn't know. I give It to him, anyhow,
that he did."
IT WILL BE RALPH HEREAFTER.
The Pigs of Brittany.
"Brittany is all right," the traveled
man said, cautiously, "but tieware of
the pigs there."
He had still an hour before the
steamer started, and he resumed:
"The Breton pig is not fat and Indo
lent like ours. He is as lean and fiery
as a wolf, and twice a woolf's size.
All over P.iittany you see him, Bwag
gerlng up and down the white roads.
In search of roots, berries, figs, any
thingfor lie must forage for himself
his master never feeds him. Step
out of his way, or he will snarl and
leap at you.
"The Bretons are great drunkards.
Sometimes they fall asleep beside the
road. They awake with a sharp pain
In the arm or leg, the pain of a hun
gry hog's teeth.
"And I could tell you a gruesome
story of the babyhood of a handloss

A Youngster's Outspokenness That
Taught Grandpa a Lesson.
There is a very well-known man in
Brooklyn who is particularly proud
of his grandson, a bright boy of four
years and a few months. But, like
all fond grandpas, he believed teas
ing amusing to the child as well as
to himself and he recently received
the shock he deserved. The little lad
was playing tadustriously with a doll
when the proud grandpa said:
' "My! playing with a doll why your
name must be Susie not Ralph."
No word from the hoy, who kept
right on playing with the doll.
"Susie," said the grandpa, Just rush
ing to his fate, "do you like dolls?"
The boy moved perceptibly, but
clung to the doll.
"Dear little Susie you used to be

Great was the consternation of the

mother, who tragically ordered the boy
to his room, while she called atten

cheeks at such a fearful offense. Fi
nally she told the little fellow that he
might be forgiven If he begged his
grandpa's pardon. But the boy be
lieved his grandpa the offender and
said so. His mother sternly read him
a lesson against profanity, and espe
cially about disrespect to grandpar

and going over to his grandpa said,
"1 am sorry I called you a d

WINDFALL FOR PEOPLE OF POR
Naming the Baby.
The naming of a baby is considered
Important even among people whom
we are apt to regard as uncivilized.
And, curiously enough, these very
folk contrive to avoid the arguments
that so often ensue when father and
mother disagree over whether the lit
tle stranger shall be called Jack or
Marmaduke, Priscllla or Jane.
The Mahometan father and mother
each write the choice of a name on a
slip of paper and place both in the
Koran. Whichever slip Is drawn first
is the name given to the child.
A pretty Egyptian custom is to light
three candles, naming each after a
god or some exalted personage. The
child is called after the candle which
Hindu mothers name their children,
paterfamilias not having a word to
say in the matter. The naming cere
mony usually takes place when the
baby is about 12 days old, and a flower
name is usixlly chosen.
Chinese girls arc simply numbered
one, two, or three, until they reach
years of discretion, when they are al
lowed to choose a name for them
selves. The boys, however, are given
a temporary name until they are 20,
when pa decides what magnificent ap
pellation they shall rejoice in for the
rest of their lives. N. Y. Weekly.
Ignorance of the Bible.
Biblical allusions, which permeate
our literature, touch no responsive
chord in the majority of college stu
dents nowadays, writes Prof. W. L.
Cross, in Education. Though some of
them are fairly familiar with names
like Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Samson,
David and Daniel, very few know any
thing about the lives of these m ;u as
related in the scriptures. Not long
ago, to recall an extreme case, not one
of 40 students under my instruction
could quite place Judas Iscaiiot; and a
venerable colleague of mine discov
ered a Jew among the seniors who had
never heard of Moses. To lift the bur
den of this ignorance, several colleges
have recently incorporated parts of
the Old Testament into their most
elementary courses in English with
great success from the standpoint
both of the student and of the instruc
tor. But a knowledge of the Bible ob
viously belongs to an earlier stage
than this. It is a pity that poiiliia'
and religious considerations st:iml in i
the way of introducing into the pi'b-j
lie schools an available body of r.plen j
did literature. Fortunately politics I
and prejudice cannot hamper many oi i
the large preparatory schools. I
Hidden Plunder of Long-Forgotten 8ea
Banditti Revealed Through the
Encroachments of the At
lantic Ocean on Coast.
The inhabitants of Paradelha, a tiny
fishing village on the Portuguese coast
some distance south of Lisbon, have
been growing rich of late on what
seems to have been the hidden plun
der of some long-forgotten pirate band.
Some of them have gathered" in as
much as 1.000 worth of treasure.
That part of the coast of Portugal
is suffering from the encroachments
of the ocean. Many houses have been
undermined in the last few years and
have had to be abandoned. Sometimes
big slices of dry land slip off Into the
Atlantic ocean on a stormy night and
the people wake up to find all land
This Is what happened a couple of
weeks ago In a furious gale. The
waves washed far In over the upland
and carried away vast masses of the
upper soil, leaving the shelving beach
a couple of hundred feet wider than St
had ever been before. A fisherman
walking along the edge of the strand
saw something glistening in the slope
and rooting it oui of the ground found
it was an ancient silver cup. He dug
some more and found quantities ol
scattered gold and silver coins.
' When the news got around the vll-;
lage the whole population turned out j
to dig. They found still more money, 1
all dating buck to the end of the,
seventeenth and beginning of the :
eighteenth centudos, There were rings
and brooches, crucifixes and jeweled
chalices, Joweled sword handles and
table plate, Nobody knows just how
much the treasure amounted to, since
the fisherfolk Wd il as fast as they
secured it, and when the official inqui
ries were made every one denied his
own share. I
I They are still digging, however, and
an occasional find is made. The sea
seems to have broken up the cache!
and distributed its contents over many
acres of beach. Objects are picked
up as far as low water mark, and some
are doubtless washed hack from time
to time from deep water.
. It is believed that the treasure rep
resents plunder from Spanish coast
towns. It is said that long ago there
were numerous bands of Portuguese
pirates which committed depredations
on a considerable scale both afloat
and ashore, and when Portugal was at
peace with Spain they were obliged to
be very careful and hide their plunder.
From time to time other hoards of.
the same sort have been discovered.
When this collection was buried, no
doubt, the spot was far enough from
the water's edge to be regarded as
safe for all time.
