In the library of the palace of the Rajah of Ulwar, a city in India, there Is a maruscript book called "The Gu* listan," which is claimed to be the most valuable volume in India. The librarian insists that it is worth 5 five hundred thousand rupees, which is equivalent to about a hundred and seventy thousand dollars, and de"lo'ae thot fh<* artiial cost of the sold Viai vg wmmv v?v w tised In illuminating it was more than fifty thousand dollars. It is a modern manuscript copy of a religious poem, made in 1848 by a German scribe at the order of the Maharajah Bani ?&* Bingh. The miniatures and other picpf tores were painted by a native artist at Delhi, and the ornamental scroll work upon the margins of the pages and the initial letters were done by a resident of Ulwar. French Painter Hoarded Wealth. Concerning the late Jean Jacques Henner a curious legend was current In France. He was as fond of money as his English colleague Turner, and his great popularity enabled him to make $40,000 a year. Of this he evidently did not spend the twentieth part. According to popular belief, he was saving the rest for the purpose of some day buying back Alsace and Lorraine from Germany. He was an Al- ' Batian, and after the war he established his fame by painting the heads of Alsatian girls, which had a large ? Bale. Bs?q % \ ?

As a result of the experiments made some time ago on the cruiser Narcissus, the authorities have decided to moderate the system of cooking for the rank and file of the navy. The admiralty have come to the conclusion that there has in the past j been too much baked meat ana po- | tatoes, pot messes, and sea-pie in the bluejackets' bill of face, this monotony i being due to the ignorance of the . amateur cooks who prepared the ! lower deck meals. On the Narcissus i trained cooks were set to prepare the 1 food of 3ome of the men, while that ! of others was cooked under the old svstem. A comparison was then j made, and this was so overwhelminglv in favor of the trained cook that the admiralty have decided to greatly extend the scope of their experiments In future bread-making is to form an important item in the instruction ! given in the schools that have been I established for the purpose of train- j ing naval cooks, and all who pass as j cooks will have to be competent bak- j ers. This is rendered necessary by j the fact that bakeries are now being J fitted in our men-of-war, so that j bread may always be obtainable for j the crews instead of sea biscuits.? I London Mail. Odd Way to Choose Pastor. A West Side congregation was I * 1 ? i cauea upon uui iuug <n>u iu tuuusc ?. i new pastor. The last three ministers : had been personae non gratae with I most of the parishioners, and before j selecting another the congregation did ' some pretty tall thinking. There was ; one woman of experience whose ad- ; vice carried particular weight, i Preacher after preacher was Invited | to the pulpit for a trial sermon, and ' all, in the final analysis, were rejected by the female arbiter. At last there came along a possible incumbent who met with her approval. "The reason I am sure he will give satisfaction," she said, "is because he has the right kind of a wife for a minister. She allows him to rant i around all he wants to at home, and j doesn't sass back. I found out long ago that a man who hasn't that privilege at home works off his spleen elsewhere. A minister vents It on his congregation. That was why we couldn't stand the last preacher. This one will be all right. We won't hear j a peep out of him." And upon that unique recommenda- j tion the congregation actually did give j the man a call, According to last accounts both he and the parishioners were doing well.

President Roosevelt began his tour of the south at 8:30 Wednesday morning. The departure from Washington was without incident. The first stop was at Richmond, Va, and during the seven hours of the president's stay in the Virginia capital, state and city officials and citizens accorded him a welcome, hearty ana sincere. His entry into the city was the signal for a wild demonstration from a multitude, and the welcoming enthusi-. asm onuly ceased when his train continued on its journey to the south. The president made several ad- j dresses, one at the capitol square, be- j fore one of the largest audiences ever assembled in Virginia's capital; another at a banquet in Masonic temple, where 400 of tne representative people of the Old Dominion were gathered at Lee monument, wher he spoke to a large number of confederate veterans, and once more at a gathering of negroes. "The wounds left by the great civil war have long heaied, but its memories remain. Think of it, oh, my countrymen, think of the good fortune that is ours! That whereas every other wars of modern times has left feelings of rancor and bitterness to keep asunder the combatants, 6ur great war has left to the sons and daughters of the men who fought, on | whichever side they fought, the same right to feel the keenest pride in the great deeds alike of the men who fought on one side and of the men who fought on the other. "Great though the meed of praise is which is due the south for the soldierly valor of her sons displayed during four years of war, I think that even greater praise is due her for what her people have accomplished in the forty years of peace which followed. For forty years the south has made not merely a courageous, but at times a desperate struggle. as she has striven for moral and material well being. "Her success has been extraordina ry, and all citizens of our common country should fee] joy and pride in it, for any great deed done, or any fine qualities shown, by one group of Americans of necessity reflects credit upon all Americans. Only a heroic people could have battled successful* ly against the conditions with which the people of the south found themselves face to face at the end of the civil war. "There had been utter destruction and disaster, and wholly new business and social problems had to be faced with the scantiest means. The economic and political fabric had to be readjusted in the midst of dire want, of grinding poverty. The future of the broken, war-swept south seemed beyond hope, and if her sons and daughters bad been of weaker fiber there would in very truth have been no hope. "But the men anj the sons of tho men who had faced with unfaltering front every alternation of good and evil fortune from Manassas to Appomattox, and the women, their wives and mothers, whose courage and endurance had reached an even higher heroic level?these men and these women set themselves undauntedly to the great task before them. For twenty years the struggle was hard and at times doubtful. Then, the splendid qualities of your manhood and womanhood told, as they were bound to tell, and the wealth of your extraordinary natural resources began to he shown. ' "Now the teeming riches of mino and field and fectnry attest the prosperity of those who are all the stronger because of the trials and struggles through which prosperity has come. You stand loyally to your traditions and memories; you also stand loyally for our great common country of today, and for our common flag, which v_u -11 iV.i l? and symuuiiicea an uiiii ia WHJULVJI uuu most hopeful for the future of mankind; you face the new age in the spirit of the age.

In view of the present status of the cotton market, which is far from being * as encouraging as desired, President Y' Harvie Jordan of the Southern Cotton Association has issued the following appeal to the members of the asso- t elation and planters generally to join in the ?rrMt monerative movement for bringing the market up to that basis which will give the price to which the cotton growers of the sooth are entitled for their product: "The continued unwarranted depression in the price of epot cottop should ' ' appeal to every ? business interest in the south. At present prices farmers - % should and must stand firm and refuse to market a single bale which can be held on the farms or financed through the banks. I earnestly ask for the actiye cooperation of all the merchants, bankers, guano dealers and cotton factors throughout the full ex- ': tent of their power until the market reacts to higher figures. This cooperation and assistance can be best subserved at this time by graating to every fanner possible an extension of their accounts and notes to January 1. 1906. If this is done promtply, ' an absolnte tie up of the cotton market can be made for the next two or j three months, and the spinners will i5fSsH be compelled to have large quantities of spot cotton before the end of that time. Prices must advance in the , near future. The time for general cooperation all along the line is at hand, and I appeal to every interest with J-$? which the producers deal to do their v-Jjg full part in the .present fight. Grant all extensions possible that can be se- fSlis cured by cotton as collateral, and to not press the producers who owe money to a settlement at present low; V;,: prices. Tie-up the spots and let, the ?||g whole world understand that the south is solid in the protection of her great I ^ staple from the 'bearish' speculator Vggij and the hands of the foreign spinner. -V-J^sS All state presidents are urged to call " ^ mass meetings at once in' counties of ' their divisions to secure the immediate cooperation of farmers and business interests to stop the sale of cotton. Scarcely any cotton is now being sold by the farmers, and while the -fight is * on let us stand shoulder to shoulder, farmers, merchants, bankers and all '-j? for the protection of the staple and the future prosperity of the south.
