Making a Bolt For It.
The monotony of crime in the po

is generally supposed by an infusion
of unexpected humor. This happy fac
ulty of tickling tbe magistrate's sense
of humor wou a prisoner in a police
station bis liberty tbe other day.
The prisoner had told the magistrate
that he was a locksmith by trade, and
the magistrate asked:
"Well, were you on business in this
gambling bouse at 2 o'clock in the
morning?"
"Yes, your honor." replied the pris
oner calmly. "I was making a bolt for

Direct Answwre.
The negroes of Africa are simple oat
direct in speech. It never occurs tc
them, writes Mr. II. H. MllllgsD Jn
"Tbe Jungle Folk In Africa," that tbe
purpose of language is to conceal
thought, and to commiserate the Afri
can for bis color is a waste of sym
pathy. In Illustration of this Mr Mii
llgan gives an amusing conversation
With one of his pupils. One day when
I was talking to Bojedl something in
the course of the conversation prompt
ed me to ask him whether he would
like to be a white man. He replied
respectfully but emphatically in the
negative. I wished to know bis rea
•on. He hesitated to tell me, but I
was insistent, aud at last he replied:
"Well, we think that we are better
looking."
I gasped when I thought of the vast
ly
ill looking faces I had seen in the
Jungles, and In apology for myself I
said:
"Bat you have not seen as to our
own country, where there t»
BO
ma­
laria and where we are not yellow and
green."
He quietly asked what color we were
our own country, to which I prompt
ly replied, "Pink and white."
Looking at me steadily for a mo
ment, be remarked:
"Mr. Mllligan. if I should see ytro in
your own country I don't believe 1
should know you."
Long Winded Preachers,
Dean Lefroy, who expressed ftic
opinion that ten minutes is Ion#,
enough for a sermon, would have met
with want sympathy from some di
vines of past centuries, says the West
minster Gazette.
Thomas Hooker considered three
hours a fair average allowance for a
sermon, though, on one occasion, when
he wns ill, he let his congregation off
more lightly. Pausing at the end of
fifteen minutes, he rested awhile and
then continued his homily for two
hours longer. Cranmer's sermons were
each a small book when set up in type,
and Baxter. Knox. Bunyon and Calvin
rarely reached "Lastly, my brethren,"
under two hours.
George Herbert once said: "The par
son exceeds not an hour In preaching,
because all ages have thought that a
competency," but a certain rector of
Bilbury, Gloucestershire, was of an^
other opinion, for he never sat down
under two hours. Tbe squire, we
learn, usually withdrew after the text
was announced, smoked his pipe out
side and returned for the blessing.

Revenge In Ceylon.
A system of Cingalese "black magic"
peculiar to the island Is still practiced
in some parts of Ceylon. It is stated
that there are 4,440 different methods
of causing ill to others. Here is a
translation of one of these methods of
dealing with your enemy:
"On Sunday eleven peya"—one peya
equals twenty-four English minutes—
"after sunrise Yama Devi"—the god of
death and judgment—"goes to the west.
Start at this hour take a meal of
bluish rice dress in red colored gar
ments.
"Take a root of ginger at the time ot
the zodiac of Aries write on' It the
name of your rival, charm it 108 times,
wrap It in a golden colored cloth and
place it In your waist.
"When you meet your rival, look
Btraiarht into his face and break the
root in your hand. Within nine peyas
he will be killed by an elephant, and
when seven months elapse six other
persons of his family will meet their
doom-"—Ceylon National Review.
A Gale by Another Nnme.
Doubtless there were many puzzled
readers when a deep sea skipper rolled
into this harbor a few days ago and
reported that bis ship had been be
lated by a gale which had piped up to
'force 10." "Force 10," *lt was ex
plained, meant something like a hurri
cane. It is a term borrowed from the
Beaufort scale, a scheme of wind
measurements devised by the British
admiral Beaufort before the days of
ocean going steam. Force 1 was a
calm, force 2 a light breeze, and so on
up to the hurricane velocity. Perhaps,
too, tbe Beaufort scale may give a
clew to those who have been wonder
ing for some time at the title of a
popular German picture. It is Just one
expanse of frowning cloud and storm
tossed billow, and the artist has named
It "windstarke 10,11."—New York Sun.
Digging For Money.
The honest workman was engaged
in excavating operations—i. e., he was
digging. The stray waj^aier of the
inquisitive turn of mind sterpedfOr a
moment to look on.
"My man," saki the S. W. at length,
"what are you digging for?*
The H. W. looked up.
"Money," he replied.
"Money?" ejaculated the amazed
6. W. "And when do you expect tc
strike it?"
"Saturday," replied the H. W. and
resumed operations
Lapland Reindeers.
In April the Lapp lets his reindeer
loose to wander as they please, and
when tbe mosquitoes begin to abound,
about midsummer, be collects bis herd
simply by catching one deer, fitting 1!
with a bell and trusting to Instinct,
which leads the animals to gather into
herds for protection against the mos
quitoes, to do the rest. In a cook sum
mer, when mosquitoes are few, this
Instinct does not come into play, and
it is almost impossible to bring the
reindeer together.

A Quaint Cookbook.
Amid the horrors of tbe siege of
Paris in 1371 one Cadol found time to
Issue a book of recipes for the prepare
tion of the strange fare to which tbe
city was reduced. "Our stomachs are
turned into natural history museums,"
he wrote', "but we must make the best
of circumstances and render our food
as palatable as we can." So bouse
wives were Instructed bow to disguise
the flesh of dogs, horses, asses, rats
and mice and were shown that, despite
the old aduge, one can make an omelet
without breaking eggs. The recipe
for an eggless omelet was as follows:
"Soak an army biscuit In sugared wa
ter flavored with orange flower, chop
finely and spread on a hot dish, pow
der well with sugar and then pour over
and set light to a liberal helping of
ram." With eggs at $6 a dozen and
rum at but little more than its normal
price, this palatable Imitation of an
"omelette au rhum" became a mosi

Birthdays anri Health.
For several years I have noticed that
In s period of fropi about three to
two weeks preceding tbe anniversary
of my birth I have had a feeling of
returning vigor, a renewal of vitality
such as I have not experienced at any
other time of tbe year. This has last
ed for from two to eight days, but has
always ceased some days before the
anniversary: hence it has occurred to
me that there may be some connection
between the approach or recurrence of
one's birth date and tbe maintenance
of one's health.—London Graphic.

There was at least one responsive
hearer In the crowded little church In
an English village, and it happened
this way:
Guests had arrived unexpectedly at
the country parsonage on Sunday
morning.
The weekly supply of bottler had run
short, so the hospitable host dispatch
ed old Joe, the handy man, to his
neighbor, Mr. Paul, whose dairy al
ways boasted a surplus. The parson
proceeded to church with his well pre
pared sermon on some of the deep
sayings of the great apostle and was
well under way with it when old Joe,
returning empty banded, concluded he
would quietly slip in and hear his mas
ter preach.
Just as he entered the minister
leaned over the pulpit, stretched out
his hand with a most impressive in
terrogation in voice and manner and
called out, "And what did Paul say?"
Distinctly sounded through the church
old Joe's reply:
"He say, marster, he ain't going to
let you have no more butter till you
pay for the last you got."
The Tomb of Genghis Khan.
Genghis Khan, the Mongol chief, in
the thirteenth century proved himself
one of the world's greatest warriors.
His tomb exists at Edcben Koro and
is described in Count de Lesdain's
"From Pekin to Sikklm:" "Two small
tents, one behind the other and con
nected by a very low inner door made
of wornout felt and admitting through
their rents tbe rain and the wind, are
the 'monument' destined to perpetuate
the renown of the greatest conqueror
the world has known. The ashes of
tbe body of Genghis Khan are deposit
ed in a kind of chest cubic in shape
and placed on a wooden support made
of-small colored pillars adorned with
paintings on all its sides except that
facing south, which Is covered with a
finely worked copperplate represent
inga divinity surrounded by four ani
mals which are not easy to identify.
The tomb, In fact, has not always
been here, but It is difficult to know
exactly where the first descendants of
the great emperor laid his remains."
