Tlir Mini Cotniniiti finis lir Ilnrlattt Ik iUr SlrniiKrkt of All. "Tlio fruits of .Invn." writes n corre spondent 'jf the I'lttHtmrk' D)iinUli, "rorin nn Intvri'FtlnK study in them ch't'?, tlicro nrc o ninny nml of such strange varieties. The fnont common is the strniiKcst of nil. It Is culled the durlnn nnd prowH lllto n hupo exere ccupo from the trunk of a tree souu what Blmllnr to our pour tree. The fruit, which Is pear shaped, grows to n grent sire, cften several feet In length, nnd has n yellow skin, rough like n pineapple. The most retnnrkiible thing about the durlnn, however, Is Its odor. To sny you enn smell It n block off Is putting It mildly. A combination of nged eggs and the ripest cheese could . not be compared with It. When you break open the hull to 11 nil what enn be the cause of nil this disturbance to your olfactory nerves nnd find n great cluster of snow white kernels which tnste like some strangely delicious cub tnrd, your nmnzemvtit Is greater still. Another strange fruit Is the serpent fruit, so called from the fact that Its skin Is the exact counterpart of that of a snake. There nrc the pomoloc, like a great orange; the potato fruit, which resembles Hint vegetable In nil but its fine llavor; the custard apple, with n yellow custardllke pulp, having a rath er decided tnste of turpentine; the pop pm, like a melon growing on n tree; the great Jack fruit, of rather a coarse lla vor; n Btnnll yellow fruit, with nn un pronounceable native mime. Incased In a great bur like a chestnut, and a hun dred other varieties, with none but na tive nnd scientific unities, some good, some Indifferent nnd some entirely un palatable to any but n native. Tbe or ange Is rather a scarce fruit, but the pineapple and banana arc abundant nnd delicious, especlnlly the former, There nre more than twenty different Turletles of bananas native to Java." YARNS FROM ERIN. The Absurdities flint Are Horn of Irlah Simplicity. Hero nre n few samples of the nb- surdities nrlstng out of tlio cxtromo simplicity of some Irish folk: A young man cntne to confess to nn Irish priest In London whose experi ences of the humors of his fellow coun trymen would 1111 a book. "Well, my man," said tho priest, "nnd how do you earn your living?" "I'm an acrowbat, your rlverence." The priest was non plused. "I'll show yo what I mean In n brnco of shakes," said tho penitent, nnd In n moment was turning himself Inside out In tho most approved acro batic fashion In and out of the pinys. An old woman who had followed him to confession looked on horrified. "When It comes to my turn, father," sliu gasped, "for tlio love of God don't put n pennncu on me like that. It 'ud bo the death of me!" I think It was the same good father who, observing tho regulnr ntteudaneo nt n Lent mission had done nothing to reform one of bis pnrlsuloncrs, told him so and asked hliu the reason of It. "Ah, father," he replied, "I can man age the faith right enough, but tho mor als bate me." On nnother occasion tltls priest wns called upon to marry n man of whom he knew nothing to a girl of his congre gation. On investigation ho found the would be bridegroom's knowledge of the Catholic faith very limited. "Have you ever been baptlred?" ho nsked. "Well, father. I can't trust mo memory to that." "Aro your parents living?" "The mother Is." "Lcf bavo her nddrcss," This wns given and n telegrom dispatched to the old lady on tho spot, reply paid. The answer came In duo course, "Vaccinated, but not boptlied." A Kerry Man in London Spectator. Llrklnir Thmiilia to II I nit n Contract.

If be does not suit tlio action to the word like the lieutenant who In Its 12. on being challenged to mortal combat by his own sergeant, accepted the duel by licking bis thumb, saying, "There Is my parole for it." Cham bers' Journal. Coins of Knrly Dnys, Tho early. Biblical references to pieces of silver do not In the original convey the Idea of coins, but of weights, shekels. The Mosaic "oblation to God" was a half shekel, and tho shekel Is ex plained by .losephus as equal to four Athenian drachma1 of a value of about 5516 cents In American money. The first Jewish coinage under authority .was. It Is believed, struck by Simon the Maccobee, about the year 1-10 H. C.
