Tbere was a great con vulsion in. the Bering sea, about iwc-Ltv-five miles north of Unalaska, ami an island appeared above the surface of the stormy waters. This GOTO THE LIMIT IN MOURNING islet, which rose to a heiifht- of ::;;ir!j three thousand feot above M'a level, was' christened Bogoslof l y tie Russians, who then owned A! '!:a. It remained solitary and b!w:c until 1882, when another vol canic eruption in the sea wa3 fol lowed by the birth of another island Mntr the first. Tor two years the new island was uit; scene of an active eruption. Then it cooled gradually, and, like the first islet, became the home of H'fjs and sea lions and the breeding founds for sea birds. Tile tliird of the Bogoslof group was born sixteen u-iirs ngo. The "baby" was smaller than its elder sisters, being about a third of a mile in diameter and with iu altitude of some GOO feet, but the year another convulsion ulted in nearly doubling its area. Since then several other islands have been born in varioup Varts of the Aleutian chain.

The body of a Kaffir child ii washed before being buried, but oth erwise the ceremony is of the sim plest character, the father himself digging the grave, whilthe mother, and perhaps another relative or two, looks on. The burial of a chief, or of his near relative is celebrated with great pomp and is accompanied by the slaughter of oxen and even of men. Very often a number of the best-looking young girls in the tribe are buried alive in the grave with the deceased magnate. In the case of Mnande, the mother of the despot King Tchake, a guard of twelve thousand men were stationed over the grave for a whole year, and were maintained by the good-will of the tribesmen. The orgies on this occasion were hor rible; and so wild did the people become that it was proposed that all who had been present at her fa uoral should be slaughtered, and that the earth should be compelled to join in the general mourning by being allowed to lie waste for a whole year. All the children borrT within one year after her decease, and their parents as well, were executed. it'i the food they like and need.

WHERE IT WASN'T DUE My most embarrassing moment happened to me on the day I was celebrating my twenty-fifth wed ding anniversary. My family and friends had all been most kind in remembering me. As I returned from an errand my neighbor came out and handed me a beautiful plant, making some re mark appropriate to the day. I thanked her enthusiastically for the gift. She interrupted me as soon" as she could, politely- saying: "Oh, the plant isn't from me. A florist de livered it to your house, but as he could not get in I offered to take it until you returned."

His residence here, however, has not been long enough for him to become thoroughly familiar with our language. One day when he went home fof dinner from the shop he took with him a large bundle of hay. "Are you going to feed your horseB?" one of the men jokingly asked. "No," he replied, "I am going to lay a chicken." THE DEPENDABLE GARDEN '.'Do you depend on your own gar den for vegetables?" asked the sum mer boarder.

QUAINT METHOD OF HUNTING Chinaman Uses Simple but Remark ably Effective Device When He Goes After Wild Ducks. So far as we know, nobody really catches birds by putting salt on their tails; but the methods adopted in some parts of the world are al most as quaint. In certain part" of China a num ber of pumpkins are left floating on the surface of any pond frequented .by wild ducks, in order that the lat ter may come to regard them as harmless objects. When the Chinaman wants a duck for (lis lunch he slips quietly into the pond and places over his head a pumpkin in which slits are cut for his eyes. He then moves gently through the water until he is near enough to catch a duck by the feet With a Bharp jerk he pulls it under the water, wrings its neck, and puts it into his belt. The other ducks are seldom disturbed, and he goes on until he has caught all he wants. RADIUM IN THE SIMPLON One of the most interesting scien tific discoveries connected with the Simplon tunnel is the existence in the rocks through which the famous tunnel was bored of a surprisingly large amount of radium. The greatest percentage was found more than two and a half miles from the Italian entrance, where every gram of rock contained about one four- thousand-millionth of a gram of radium. The presence of such quantity of radium is thought by some to furnish an explanation of the extraordinary degree of heat en countered in the tunnel.

There are people wlio never have a movement of the bowels without it is produced by a ca tharic. Most of them have brought that condition on them selves by the use of mineral waters and strong cathartics hat take too much water out of he system and aggravate the disease they are meant to re- ieve. A mild laxative tonic like Chamberlain's Tablets affords a gentle movement of the bowels hat you hardly realize has, been produced by a medicine, and heir use is not so likely to be followed by constipation.
