When people say anything good about ; you, ever notice what a few are pres- ' ent? I We all of us claim to be natural, but we all of us know that the only time when we are not putting on is when we are asleep. Somehow the hundred dollars some other man has always looks larger and as if it should go further than the hun dred dollars you have.

Atchison Globe. Hawaiian Huckleberry. j On the island of Hawaii are great j thickets of the ohelo, or Hawaiian hue- j kleberry (Vaccinium reticulatum), which the natives consider sacred to Pele, the goddess who is supposed to preside over the famous crater of Kilauea, and which, together with white pigs and chickens, are thrown by them into the boiling red lake during an eruption to appease the wrath of the aggressive ' dame and thus cause the rivors of lava i to cease flowing on their destructive course. These berries grow In clusters on low bushes right on the very, brink of the brimstone bds and are so nu merous that a bushel may, be easily gathered in half an hour. In appear ance they somewhat resemble a cran berry, and the flavor is pleasantly sug gestive of grapes. Is the saving from death of the baby girl' of Geo. A. Eyler, Cumber berland, Md. He writes: "At, the age of 11 months, our little girl was in declining health with serious throat trouble, 'and two1 physicians gave her up. We were almost in despair when we resolved to try Dr. King's New Discovery for Consumption, Coughs and Colds. The first bottle gave re lief. After taking four bottles she was cured, and is now in perfect health." Never fails to relieve and The Word "Expire." "Expire" in its literal sense is breath ing out Inspiration and expiration to gether constitute respiration. Izaak Walton observed that "if, the inspiring or expiring organ of any animal be stopt it suddenly dies." The Romans spoke of "breathing out" the breath of life instead of "dying," by way of euphemism, just as they said "Vixit" (he has lived) instead of "he is dead." In all languages the reluctance frankly to say "dead" or "die" appears; hence such words and phrases as "pass away, "decease," "demise," "the de parted," "defunct," "the late," "no more," "if anything should happen to me." Perpetuating- the Species. There is a stringent law in Japan that when one camphor laurel Is cut down another must be planted in its place. The tree is hardy and long lived, attaining to an enormous size. It is covered with a small leaf of a vivid green color. The seed, or berries, grow in clusters, resembling the black cur rant in size and appearance. And the wood is employed for every purpose, from cabinetmaking to shipbuilding. They Are a Separate People, a Tribe j Quite by Themaelven. "Such as wake on the night and sleep on the day and haunt taverns and ale houses and no man wot from whence they come nor whither they go." So quaintly describes an old English stat ute against the gypsies. Ever since the year 1530, says a writer in the London Standard, Great Britain has tried to get rid of this strange people without ap preciable success. Every year or so some county is up in arms against them, yet they persist in returning and apparently thrive under persecution. The gypsies are popularly supposed to come originally from Egypt, as their name indicates, but their origin is trac ed farther east than the land of the Nile. Wherever they come from, they are a separate people, a tribe quite by themselves. They appeared in England about 1505, and twenty-six years later Henry VIII. ordered them to leave the coun try in sixteen days, "taking all their goods with them. "An outlandish peo ple," he called them. The act was in effectual, and In 1562 Elizabeth framed a still more stringent law, and many were hanged. "But what' numbers were executed," says one ' old writer, "yet notwith standing, all would not prevalle, but they wandered as before, uppe and downe." They got into Scotland and became an intolerable nuisance. Both In that country and in England legisla tion proved quite ineffectual. The acts gradually fell into desuetude. Under George IV. all that was left of the ban against the gypsies w the mild law that any person "telling fortunes shall be deemed a rogue and a vagabond." "Gypsies are no longer a proscribed class," says a recent writer. "Probably the modern gypsy does little evil be yond begging and petty theft, but his determination not to work is as strong as ever, and it seems curious that an industrial people like ours continues to tolerate a horde of professional idlers." How numerous the horde Is may be gathered from the fact that the number who wintered in Surrey one year was estimated at 10,000. . ' The language as well as the life of the gypsy tribe has a tenacity of its own. Many of their words have taken firm hold in a half slang, half permis sibly way. Shaver Is the gypsy word for child. Pal is pure gypsy. Codger means a man. Cutting up is gypsy for quarreling, and cove stands for "that He Gnessed Right. "Ah, me," exclaimed Mrs. Nagget, "my shopping was most unsatisfactory today!" "Huh," grunted Nagget; "trying to get something for nothing, I suppose!" "Yes, dear. I was after a birthday gift for you." Philadelphia Press. J. W.
