Seven hundred years ago some shep herds of the valley of Roncal, in Na varre, were murdered by shepherds of the valley of Bareton. in Beam, the crime taking place on the high pasture lands of Arias, in the Pyrenees. It would have been difficult to bring the murderers individually to justice, and the Spaniards were preparing to make war upon the valley from which the French murderers had come when the French villages proposed that peace be maintained at the price of a yearly tax or tribute, to endure for all time, and this proposition was accepted. The payment of this blood tax—origi nally three white mares, but later three cows of a particular breed and color has been made ever since, the custom (it is nothing more) having survived even the great wars in which both France and Spain have engaged and the storm of the French revolution. Yearly the representative men of the two valleys meet on the frontier at a certain stone remote from any town and go through the ceremony of pre senting and receiving the cattle. The order of procedure, which is elaborate and impressive. Is fixed by a document bearing the date 1375. though the tax was paid a hundred years prior to that time. The records of each yearly meet ing and payment are duly attested and deposited in the archives of the Ron calais.—New York Tribune. Birds of a Feather. Frederick Levesou-Gower In his reminiscences relates that when he visited Moscow iu 18T»t for the corona tion of Alexander II.

Jle was awaiting her. "I was afraid you would be thinking I had forgotten." she said. "No," he responded calmly, in the tone of one who is master of himself. "An engagement is an engagement With me." She was a beautiful girl. A wealth of chestnut hair rippled below the wide brim of her bonnet. Her close fitting tailored gown yielded to every movement of her supple form. He was a bit above the average height, a clean cut, square chinned chnp, whose every expression bespoke self reliance. As he looked at her his glance was deferential, yet uot timid. "It has been a long while since we saw each other," he remarked. "Yes, nearly a year," she replied. "But do you remember when I left that time you said I would have to come back?" "Yes. You should have :ome sooner than this." "Rut I have been so busy—going and coming, dances, dinners, the theater and all." "I know. And you were married too? His voice did not tremble as he ask ed this, yet across her face there flash ed a quick tinge of humiliation. «'T_I would rather not speak of that." she observed, almost coldly. "That is all over. We—we— It was to be expected. The truth is we were not meant for each other. So I—I got a divorce." "It was better so, no doubt," he re sponded gently. "Won't you sit down?" She took the chair he indicated, and as he .looked down at her she flashed him a sudden smile. "I was afraid of you the last time." she said merrily. "But you are not afraid now?" His voice seemed to give her assur ance. She smiled again. "No. Indeed!" He put his fingers beneath her dim pled chin and tilted her bonny head back, then gazed at her earnestly. Her limpid eyes looked up at him trustingly. The rose pink of her cheeks came and went fitfully. The white of her throat throbbed with each breath. He bent nearer to her, still with that fixed gaze. Her lips were parted. He raised his head, and she looked out of the window silently. There was a pause. At last she spoke. "What are you studying about? Wtat have you decided?" "1 think I'll have to fill two of your teeth," he said quietly. "The rest are all right You have taken better care of them than most women do."—Life.

To Illustrate Yankee persistency a Wall street magnate told the following story the other day: "A new England Yankee who was a prisoner on pirate ship in the good old days when pirates roamed the seas became, because of his Yankee attri butes, objectionable to his eaptors It was finally decided to maroon him on a desert island with but little food »nd a coflin to remind him of bis In evitable fate.

For three days she lay there with not a breath of air. On the eveu ing of the third day a black speck was noticed on the horizon. It steadily grew larger and soon was close enough for the men on the ship to make out what it was." The man of millions paused for an instant and then said, smiling, "It was the Yankee in his coffin, with half of the lid in either hand rowing for home."—Cincinnati Commercial Trib une. How to Quit Smoking. Do not light the first cigar less than half an hour after breakfast. The more difficult this delay may be. the more need there Is for a cure. The remain der of the day smoke the same ns usual. It is only the first cigar with which we are dealing. Keep this up for a week, then lengthen the interval to an hour for another week, then make It one and a half hours, two. two and a half, and so on. If you have an "all gone" sensation, a long ing for something and don't know what sort of feeling, eat an orange or apple or almost any kind of fruit, but don't smoke until the time is up. The nerves being deprived of their morning stimulant are crying for nourishment, which nature is hastening to supply through Increased appetite to supply digestion. By the time the first cigar is entirely eliminated the cure is ef fected with no serious derangement of the heart or digestive apparatus. It now requires only a moderate will power to make the cure permanent— St. Louis Post-Dispatch, DRIEST NOVEMBER FOR THE PAST SIX YEARS WEATHE OBSERVER ROBERTS FIXES UP SHORT RESUME OF WEATHE FOR MONTH.

African Savages That Grind Their Teeth to Sharp Points. The most terrible species of canni bals living are the cruel, bloodthirsty Manyuema of Tanganyika, iu central Africa. Living to the west of Tan ganyika, these cannibals, clothed in primitive fashion with a piece of bark cloth rudely hammered out from a neighboring tree, have an appetite for human flesh which Is well nigh in satiable. They exercise the most fiendish eun ning in tracking down their quarry, choosing fat, well covered people in preference to those who are lean and bony. Their favorite practice is tc. waylay their victims at eventide so that they may have before them a long night in which to effectually dis pose of their prey by cutting it up into strips and drying it over a low fire in the woods. These dried strips of human flesh are carefully preserved for future use, aud on two occasions these grewsome forest food depot? were discovered and their owners kill ed by the Watipa people, who inhabit east Tanganyika. Most of these cannibals file tlieii teeth to sharp points so as to enable them more easily to tear the flesh from the bone when they have to eat their abominable meal in a hurry.— Wide World Magazine. An Unreasonable Friend. Several young artists in Philadelphia are telling a story on another wielder of the brush who is a fellow member in a little club. One of the rules of tho club is that each member must keep his finished paintings up to a certain number. The artist on whom the story is told 4 noted for his Indolence. He keeps up to the requirement regarding the nu'aber. but never exceeds it. But for his distaste for work the artist probably would be very comfortably fixed financially, as he has consider able talent. As a matter of fact, he Is usually on the edge of penury, sev eral days ago. when his exchequer was unusually low. a friend visited him In his studio. The friend looked at sev eral of the paintings, while the artist lay on a couch, smoking a pipe. "I like this." the friend finally said, pointing to one of them.
