A Warning That May Prove of Value
to Relic Hunters.
It may be trusted that no lineal de
scendent of the pilgrims would and
no other person foolishly should ever
claim to have or to have seen a teapot
that had come over on the Mayflower.
Wh atever other articles in whatever
number may be treasured as parts of
the sacred cargo that was landed at
Plymouth rock in 1020, relic hunters
may rest in the assurance at no rival
owns a teapot of Mayflowt . descent.
The explanation is simple. When the
Mayflower sailed for America an ounce
of tea was rare enough to have made
up a fitting gift for royalty. Yet forty
years later the wealthy and fashion
able people of England were fairly fa
miliar with tea which the East India
company had first brought into the
country, and four years later it was
on sale in the coffee houses, at -which
time a pound might be pr chased for
the moderate sum of 0 shiings.
Only twenty-five years later tea was
on sale in Boston, and soon after there
were two tea houses besides those kept
by Daniel Vernon and Benjamin Har
ris. In the first decade of the eight
eenth century it could be bought from
Zabdill Bolton at his apothecary shop.
Today the coffee houses of a hundred
years ago in London are in reality tea
houses. In England were made the
first teapots of pottery. Later the
most delicate creations in porcelain ap
peared, but as tea became popular the
art of the teapot maker was less ex
clusively refined.-Boston Globe.
DARING BELL RINGERS.
Pranks of the Athletic Young Span
iards of Seville.
There is a curious custom among the
young Spaniards of the city of Seville.
On certain fete days, related a tourist,
the youn men of the place have per
mission to ring the bells in the clock
towers of the cathedral. They have an
ingenious and original way of ringing
them. While the regular bell ringers
repose these amateurs climb up on tc
the bells, throw them forward with all
their force and ride upon the bells in
their furious swinging to and fro. We
may imagine what an uproar is pro
duced when all the bells of a cathedral
are being treated in this manner. Any
man who is able may exercise his skill,
and the duration of the ringing de
pends upon the caprice or the strength
and patience of the ringers.
The spectacle is very strange of the
g.eat bells swinging, with one, two or
more bold ringers hanging from them
In any attitude which seems to thera
best adapted to pushing out the most
noise. In the Giralda, at Seville, the
first time I witnessed this, the clamor
was frightful. When I looked up I
thought at first some unfortunate was
entangled in the bell rope, but I soon
found it was a matter of sport. An
other ringer appeared suspended in the
air, holding the bell by the ears or the
rim or the wooden framework and fol
lowing it in all Its movements, some
times feet, sometimes head, downward.
Such are the daring bell ringers of Se
The Egyptian Mummy.
Egyptologists have discovered that
among the ancient Egyptians the invi
olate preservation of the body was
deemed absolutely essential to the-cor
poreal resurrection of the dead. Ac
cording to the teaching of the Egyptian
priests, the living man consisted of a
bod'y, a soul, an intelligence and an ap
pearance called "Ka." Death separat
ed these four parts, which must ulti
mately be reunited for all eternity.
Between death on earth and life ever
lasting there intervened a period of
several thousand years, during which
season the soul" performed a painful
probationary pilgri'mage through the
underworld. The body in order that it
should await intact the return of the
soul must meanwhile be guarded from
all corruption; hence the custom of
Man and His Tailor.
A man can be measured to 'the best
advantage, tailors say, away from a
glass. Standing before a mirror he is
almost certain to throw out his chest,
if he does not habitually carry It so,
and take an attitude tha? he would
like to have rather than the one he
commonly holds, whereas the tailor
wants him, as the portrait painter
wants his subject, in his natural pose
and manner. With the man in -that at
titude the tailor can bring his art tc
bear, if that is required, in the over
coming of any physical defect and'.pro
duce clothes that will give the best at
tainable effect upon the figure as they
will be actually worn.-New York- Sun.
After the defeat and flight of Charles
. the daredevil Duke of Bucldnghaml

The Remedy That Does.
"Dr. King's New Discovery is the
remedy that does the healing others
promise but fail to perform." says M~rs.
. R. Pierson. of Auburn Centre, Pa.
"It is curing me of throat and lung

New Discovery is doing me so much~

Wholesome Advice For Boys.
Now, you lads who want to leave
school, don't be in such a hurry to be
earning something. Think of the fu
ture prospect rather than the preseni
advantage. The man who can de
something really well, whether it be
the making of a table, the building of
a house or the writing of a book, will
very seldom be unemployed. It is the
boys in a hurry who are "little mil
lionaires" on S shillings a week a1
fourteen and "big loafers" on nothing
at eighteen, with no trade in their
fingers and no prospect but the life 01
a day laborer. Go slowly, boys-you'll
go farther. Hurry is a dog that ofter
goes off on a wrong scent. Patience
and foresight are two dogs which hun1
together. They are slow at "finding,'
but they are always "in at the death.'
