the pot and diffuses little
or none through the room.

THURSDAY EVENiNG. MAY 7. 1908 _
Pretty Lively Fooling.
I was out walkin*; in Kingston, Ja?
maica, one afternoou, and while on s
uarrow street 1 came upon two black
women, each apparently lu a towering
rage. Each woman's tongue was go?
ing at a phenomenal rate, but uot a
word of their acreechliig Jargon wss
Intelligible to me.
Finally one of tbe women scooped
up s double handful of tbe ever pres?
ent Kingston dust aud flung lt over
the other woman, with a wild shriek of
laughter. The dust covered wouiau re?
taliated by tnking a tin pan she bad
tn ber hand aud, scooping up a couple
of quarts of the dirty water lu the gut?
ter by tbe roadside, drenching her as?
sailant with lt, while all that part of
Kingston resounded with Ihe mad
laughter. Tbe two women then closed
lu on each other and proceeded to en?
gage lu a prolonged wrestle, which
resulted In Loth of them falling to the
ground, where they rolled over and
over lu a cloud of dust and Anally
stood upon their feet, facing each other
lu a state of dirt aud disorder beyond
description.
Fearlug that tbey would make a sec?
ond onslaught ou each other and wish?
ing to play the part of peacemaker, 1
stepped forward aud asked:
-What is tbe trouble'/''
Courtesying low, one of the women
said iu a soft, drawling voice:
"No trouble at all, matlab; we's jess
fool In'."?Exc-bauge.
Cast Up by tha S.a.
_hey tbat go dowu to the sea lu
ahips leurn much of the mysteries of
life. From tbe coast of Africa there
traveled to Scnrboro, Me., the painting
of bu old time sen captain of tbat
town wbo long years ago was lost witb
Bil ou board his ship lu the China seas
The ship sailed from the home" port
with every prospect of a successful
voyage, but sbe never returned to the
home laud. Years went by and she
was given up as lost, uer name was
taken from the shipping list, aud no
uews of her came back to tbe walting
ones at home. Long afterward a pass
lug vessel picked up off the African
coast the portrait of an American sea
captain such as tbe Chinese artists
paint, and on the back of the picture
were the captain's name and tbat of tbe
port from wbicb be sailed. Tbe paint?
ing was forwarded to the little Amer?
ican town, aud lt was found to be a
picture of the 8carboro sea captain,
mainer of the lost vessel that bad left
the harbor so many years ago.?Kenue

Largest Grave tn tha World.
The largest .single grave In the world
occupies Just exactly one acre of
ground, which ls surrounded by an
Iron railing. Tbis enormous grave ls
located at Pearto Cortes*., lu Honduras,
and ls tbe burial place of a woman.
Tbe tombstone occupies the center of
tbe ground luclosed. aud several wood
eu figures representing tbe deceased
are arranged lu statuellke form lu dif?
ferent parts of tbe grouud. There
nre no fewer than sixteen of these fig?
ures, which In tbe evening give tbe
place a ghostlike appearance. The de?
ceased had died rich and in ber will
bad specified the amount of ground
to be purchased for her grave and tbe
manner lu wbicb lt should be deco?
rated. Sbe had many curious uotlous,
aud tbe Bise aud ornamentation of ber
grave was one of them.
Coleridge'! Cloudinsss.
There is In Mr. Ellis Yaruoll's reml
nisceuces. "Wordsworth aud the Cole
ridges," a ver,- amusing story of Sam?
uel Taylor Coleridge, whose tboughta
were sometimes too profound even fur
poets lo follow. Wordsworth and Ssm
uel Rogers bad apeut tbe evening with
Coleridge, snd as the two poets walked
away together Rogers remarked cau?
tiously:
"I did not altogether understand tbe
latter part of what Coleridge said."
"I dldu't understand any of lt,"
Wordsworth hastily replied.
"No more did I!" exclaimed Rogers,
witb a sigh of relief.
A Fprmidabla Army.

back hatless, breathless. "My regi?

"General," auswered the excited aid.
"Blanco started lt all right, but tbere

A Triple Coincidence.
An almost Incredible triple coinci?
dence was noted lu Fiance some years
ago. In 189-1 tbe deputy for tbe Ar?
dennes was M. Ferry; for Loir et Cher,
M. Brlsson, and for the Vosges, M.
Hugo. In 1793, 101 yeera esrlier, each
district had been represented In the
chamber by a man of exactly tbe same
natue.
