If our presence on the Island Cftu resulted In nothing more than In vjtroduclng a better sanitary system Into in*-Cuban metropolis, the Cabans owe £• a debt of gratitude. For genera I tions Havana bas been recognised as the breeding place of yellow fever. To day that dread scourge is practically wiped out. The death rate for a recent month was the smallest for any month, except one, during several years, and there was not one death from yellow fever. The latter statement Is one of great interest. Of only two other months in over ten years can this be said, the two other exceptions being February and May, 1899. Typhoid fe ver and pernicious malaria are almost unknown, though formerly very com mon. American sanitary measures will in a few years transform Cuba from the graveyard of foreigners into a ver itable health resort. Only a few days ago a distinguished iconoclast asserted and proved that, while there was a Barbara Frltchle, she did not Haunt the Stars and Stripea from her window in the face of the Confederate troops as they passed through Fredericksburg, Maryland. She did not say: "Shoot If you must this old gray head," nor did Jackson threaten a dog's death on any one'who accepted the old lady's challenge. None of these things happened for two very good reasons: Barbara Frltchle was bedridden, and Jackson and his soldiers did not march anywhere near her house. Now come forward Maj. Gen. Joseph W. Keifer and Gen. Ste phen H. Manning, both of whom were officers under Gen. Phil Sheridan, with the statement that "Sheridan's Ride'' was all poppycock, and that he did not sa ve the day . at Winchester. Accord ing to these commanders, Sheridan did make the ride ail right, but long before he arrived the battle had been practi cally won. Sheridan mistook a handful of stragglers and a few wagons for his retreating army and could never after wards be convinced of his error. Gen erals Keifer and Manning assert that Sheridan had absolutely nothing to do with winning the battle, and that the credit belongs to the late Gen. Wright, who was in command of the Federal forces. One by one our Idols are being shattered, and soon nothing will be left but a choice collection of old pedestals on which there is nothing to mount. This country pays so much attention to education that anything bearing on the subject naturally becomes of gener al interest. Questions of suitable studies, proper hours, textbooks and similar matters have frequently been discussed in the past, as they no doubt will be in the future. So, too, the sub jeet ef punishment for refractory scholars has often been a theme of thoughtful consideration. And yet, not withstanding the time and attention bestowed upon this latter feature of our public school system, it does not in places appear to have got beyond the stage of experiment. What gives sub stance to this assumption is the fact that a short time since a teacher in a Connecticut school, feellug herself es pecially annoyed by her pupils con stantly whispering, determined to take heroic measures to break up the prac tiee. As a step to this end she an nounced tbnt any boy caught in the act would be compelled to kiss a girl pupil named by the teacher in the sight of tiie whole school. Strange and nnnatu ral as it may appear, this order pro duced the desired effect. The boys kept I mum and the girls took on a look of mingled regret and indignation until a gleam of hope a day or two ago irradi ated their gloom by a handsome littla fellow being captured with bis lips close to the ears of a neighbor. As he claimed, however, he was deaf and had not heard the anti-whispering order when first given out, he got off, while the feminine portion of the school dropped back Into its previous depres sion. The main fact, however, is that the deaf boy's uncle is a school com mitteeman, and has brought a charge against the teacher of cruelty in school punishment, a thing not tolerated by the laws of the Nutmeg State. While it's true that section of our great coun try once aided and abetted the blue laws In their consiprncy against human happiness, it remains to be seen whether the Influence of that period so I far lingers in the community as to make kissing, even in its most iuno cent, amateurish, immature and vealy form, a crime of serious magnitude. Breaking Horses in South Afrtcs. The way in which horses are broken to saddle In South Africa is one which I have never seen practiced in any other country. It is charmingly sim pie, and has its good points as well ns its bad ones. It consists of tying the head of the neophyte close up to that of a steady horse by means of a cord connecting the respective headstalls worn by these animals. After they have both been saddled and bridled, the "schoolmaster" is first mounted, I and then another man gets on the young one, who is powerless to buck, rear, or run away, on account of his I head being fixed. Besides this, the fact of his being alongside another horse gives him confidence, and, no ! matter how wild he may be, he will learn in a short time to carry his bur den and regulate his pace according to that of his companion. As he settles I down quietly to work, the connecting cord may be gradually loosened out, until at last it can he taken off alto gether. This is a capital plan if om haa a good break horse, and If on knows no better way. Its great fault is'its tendency to make a horse unwill ing to go alone. Of course It haa no pretensions to giving a horse a good mouth.—From "Among Horses in South Africa," by M. H. Hayes. Bant to Hlbtria.

It was à beautiful Sunday morning in May. Pancho was an old man, but there was nothing in his appearance indicative of his age except his bristling gray mus tache, the deep Unes In his brown face, and the dull, bloodshot black eyes that must once have been as fierce as those of an Indian. With his arms resting on the gate, Pancho rolled himself a huge yellow-papered cigarette, which he pro ceeded to enjoy. Suddenly he pulled the brim of his big white sombrero fur 7 HE BAKDOLÉRO. F ANCHO PARCO leaned lazily against his gate on the outskirts ther down over his face as he descried & man walking toward him on the path beside the road. The newcomer was a young man, and Pancho's opposite in every particular, "Como esta, senor?" 'Good morning, Pancho. Has Seno rita Helena gone to church?" "No, senor. Pretty soon she come, You go with her?" "If she'll allow me.'' "Oh, she glad to take you to church glad to take any one. She is good. She want to make poor Pancho go, but ho ho go any more." "Did you hear of the hold-up on the Santa Marla road, Pancho?" asked the American, casually. At once It seemed that the sombrero cast a darker shadow over Pancho's face, while his eyes narrowed into slits, "Si. I heard of him. They make big fuss 'bout little thing. It was deefferent, senor, in early days before-" His in born politeness gave him pause, "Before the gringos came?" supple mented the other, laughingly, "Si, senor, before the gringos came, I born here, senor, feefty—seexty—sev ent y years ago. My father had un ran cho grande near here. Every one know d Rancho Parco.

"Well, Pancho, it's pretty hard to Identify him these days," watching him closely. "Oh, I don' know, eef you smart, What your beeslness, senor?" The question was asked with much apparent indifference, but George How ard was not deceived. Suspecting, he saw himself suspected. "Real estate," he replied, promptly; "I'm down here looking up the purchase of some land." I "So?" said Pancho. "And will you buy him or—take him? Americanos get all the land all the time. Long time ago you come here, senor, you would come to me to get land. I own all. Now all gone, and Pancho not got five centavos. Pancho has lost his greep. Sometimes I geef away the land. You see where all those houses up street stand? One day Pancho see a big black horse—the borse do tor bis new saddle and silver 8pur9, 1 8 eef thousand acres for him.

"Well, It is foolish of you, dear old father, to talk so. In a cosmopolitan country such as ours"—and then as she realized that her language was unin telligible to one of her hearers, at least —"but, Mr. Howard, I must go to church. The Mission bells are ringing already and I am the organist I will leaving Pancho meditatively smoking be glad if you will go with me. Like the Salvation Army lassie, I want every one to come to our hall." The two went down the road together. bis cigarette. And as he smoked he communed with himself and wondered à about many things. Helena waa so un like a Parco, he thought She was not content to mix with the Spanish people exclusively, as her mother had done be fore her, but was welcomed every where. She did not hate the Ameri cans, but told him, her own father, ninny times that it was wrong to cherish hatred against any one. Surely she was a strange, dear child. But the Tareo blood would tell even In her If the occasion arose—he was sure of that Making himself another cigarette, Pancho strolled idly Into the town. He joined several groups of Spanlsh-Amer icans standing on the sidewalks In their Sunday clothes, nodded familiarly to the store-keepers In front of the shops, and finally brought up before a crowd of men and boys who bad surrounded and were listening to Sam Smith's de scription of the recent hold-up. Sam was the stage-driver. "I threw out the box all right enough," Sam was saying, with great caution, "but It was my old fake box. The right one was on behind, tied up In a roll of blankets. The fellow was Just about the build of Pancho there-' Pancho passed on as If he had not heard, but a knowing smile of satisfac tlon played about his lips. The delightfully monotonous summer days of blue sky and yellow sun came and departed before the town was again awakened from Its languorous Bleep of satisfied traquillty. In the vicinity of Los Alamos Sam Smith was held up once more. The lone highwayman com pelled the doughty and shrewd Samuel to descend from his seat and produce the express box from a roll of blankets, This being accomplished, the luckless passengers were lined np on one side of the road and the man with the gunny sack over His head and the Winchester In his hand relieved them of their val uables In turn. The following day the broken express box and a piece of the gunny sack were found in the bushes near the scene of the robbery. Pancho was suspected on Sam's report and his house searched. There the rest of the gunny sack was found. Pancho had already taken to the bills, and a large reward was of fered for his capture. Sympathy, Blncere and universal, went out to the old man's daughter, but with the blow a change came over her. Every glance of pity was met by a look of suppressed Indignation and scorn, for pity Implied a belief In her father's guilt. In her eye a new fire kindled—a fire that burned In Pancho's eyes when he was xpung. Except her own, no roof knew her now but that of the Mission. But all this was only the brave exterior. In a little while it was known she was ill. Within two months she was dead. The wise doctors gave the cause as quick consumption. Two days afterward two men moved cautiously down the slope of the cone shaped mountain, at the foot of which stood the Mission. Both were armed, and both crept crouchingly from bowl der to bowlder and from bush to bush, as if they feared detection. As they did so the bells of the Mission began to toll. The sweet-toned sound from the little bronze bells—cast in old Spain— came up the mountain, and the two men stopped and looked down at a fu neral procession passing slowly along the country road to the grave yard, a short distance away. For one of them that funeral was a magnet. Following the hearse came a wagon in which sat a number of young girls clothed In white, and behind it many buggies, wagons and a motley description of ve hicles filled with people. The man in the rear gazed Intently at the moving spectacle for a time, and then his eyes wandered searchingly over the mountain slope. Suddenly he stood erect and brought his gun to his shoulder; for the first time he had dis covered the other man, leaning against a slanting rock, not twenty feet away. "Hands up, quick!" he shouted, "or I'll fire." "Carajol" burst from Pancho's lips, as he made a movement to seize his gun. "Don't! I'll kill you." Slowly Pancho's bauds went up. How ard advanced to disarm him. It was Pancho's turn: "You no cornel" he cried. 'Dios! You not take me alive." Howard stopped. The two looked at each other steadily. The Mission bells still tolled, and the funeral procession wended its way along the country road. You must go with me, Pancho. I'm sorry, but I must do my duty." I say I no go!" cried Pancho, his eyes blazing with excitement "You think a Parco go to jail?" "It'll be all right, Pancho, old man. If you're not guilty you can easily prove It" "Geelty? You mean I no hold up the stage? You wont me say that I no say It. I did hold him up, but I not geelty. How is it when the damned gringos take all Pancho got? The grin gos geelty, eh? Vnat you say? Pancho no bandolero. Pancho only take a leetle of what Is take from him. But no use talk. Every one say Pancho geelty. I no care. Nina mia, dead. You see down there? They take Helena to the grave. I no want leef. I no 'f raid death. When they put Helena mia in the grave, Paucbo die too. You watch, senor—you see." The procession was entering the grave yard. "But I won't allow you to kill your self." "You not allow?" Pancho laughed derfaively. "But you make meestake. Pancho no keel himself. Helena mia say that la wrong—say es malo. I not do what Helena mia say not do. You keel me, senor." "I kill your' "SI, senor, you keel me, or—I keel you. I got right to do that" "But Pancho, Pancho," Howard al most screamed, as he saw In the other's a un not be to If to a face the sudden resolve and the plan to effect It "you must not make me do it. No, you will not Pancho. .Think of Helena. Helena would not. want you to do that. She would want you to live and be a Parco." As he pleaded for the other man's life, he became fearful of his own nerves. Pancho had turned his face in the di rection of the little cemetery and the people standing around the open grave. Even at that distance his eyes were fixed upon the coffin which was being gradually lowered. To him came the cadencé of the last notes of the bells, Suddenly he wheeled about and his hands dropped from the rock above his head upon which he had been resting. "Now!" he cried, as he made a motion to sieze liis gun. The Mission bells were still, but the shot from Ho ware's gun reverberated through the hills.—Argonaut. reaching Etiquette, "Madam," he began as the door opened, "I am selling a new book ou 'Etiquette and Deportment.'

There are several kinds of palm trees which flourish in Africa. Oue is the date palm. The tree is very beautiful, and when oue knows the uses that tho natives make of It, It is a question what the people would do for food and shelter if the date palm did not grow there. It provides them with food equal to any of the grain foods with which we are fa miliar It also provides them with sugar, with wine, vluegar and oil. Their houses nre built of it, aud their furniture is made of it, and the roofs are thatched—that is, covered—with its leaves. They have learned to make pa per of It, so that the history of the country such as It has, Is written upon it. In South America there Is another kind of palm—the coconnut palm. This kind not only provides the South Sea Islander with food, with timber for his house, and wood for his furniture, and thatching for his roof, but it also sup plies him with dishes, for the nut of the coconnut is his drinking cup. It also provides with a drink, for the milk of the cocoanut, an Aincriaan writer tells us, is as cool as any hillside spring, and so delicate ns to be Incomparable with any other drink furnished by na ture. Sacred Flowers in India. In the Hindu religion bright-colored or fragrant flowers take a prominent place as offerings to the gods, whilst the leaves or flowers of other plants are held sacred either for special historical reasons, or for their fancied resemh- ! lance to mythical objects. The list of | flowers held sacred by the Hindoos , alone is an Immensely long one. The hobest flower in India Is that of the I Kadamba tree, which Is specially dedi cated to the god Krlshnu. The flower ! of the Pippul tree are venerated by the ! Hindoos because the Diety Vishnu Is l supposed by them to have been born amongst Its branches. Other peculiarl ly sacred flowers with this people are those of the Asoca, the Bakula, the Mango, the Bela and the Kadnniba. The most celebrated sacred flower is the Lotus. In India it was supposed to spring from Vishnu, and in its unfold ed blossom Brahma appeared; It was also the attribute of Gangn, In Egypt It was concentrated to Isis and Osiris, and symbolized the creation of all things from water, the rise of the Nile, and the return of the sun. Regatta of Knight of the Grrter. A Knight of the Garter dressed In the regalia Is an imposing sight. He wears a blue velvet mautle, with a star embroidered on the left breast. His trunk-hose, stockings aud shoes are white, his hood and surcoat crim- j son. The garter, of dark blue velvet edged with gold and bearing the mot- ! to, "Honl soit qui mal y pense," also \ in gold, is buckled about the left leg, below the knee. The heavy golden col lar consists of twenty-six pieces, each lu the form of a garter, bearing the motto, and from It bangs the "George," a badge which represents St. George on horseback, encountering the dragon." The 'lesser George" Is a smaller badge attached to a blue ribbon, worn over the left shoulder. The star of the Or der consists of eight points, within whieli la the cross of St. George en circled by the garter. New Method or Healtnic Bottles.
