Over the bed on which! I e is born and over the grave in which i j in' is buried is hung a cluster of coconut j b'o-soms to charm away evil spirits. I This one tree furnishes practically all; he needs for life. The fruit provides: him with food and oil. and the sap. j jvith "jaggery" or coconut sugar. The j ' "niilk'' of the green nut is a healthful i 'refreshing drink. The juice of the un-l opened flower he makes into a delight- fill wine; distilled, tlie wine becomes "arraik." a powerful spirit. From the tih.-r or "coir" that cases the shell he makes ropes, fish-nets and matting; his babv sleeps in a cradle of coir-rope. The shell of the nut. he fashions into driuk-ing-vessels and spoons, and the fragments left over serve as fuel. He p'aits the leaves into dishes and into thatch for his dwelling. The dried leaves serve as torches ; with the stalks he fences his garden. He hollows out the trunk of the tree-into a canoe that, buoyed by an ingenious out rigging of jioles, goes swift! v through the roughest seas. He builds his house ef coconut wood, and when he dies, he is laid away in a coffin hollowed from the friendly tree. Ceylon yields more than a billion coconuts a year.

During the absence of his brother, Ronald had been Induced by some friends to attend some social gather ings. He was a courtly and a hand some man and be realized that he looked It. The thought had suddenly conie to him: why not anticipate the dilatory Clyde and himself find mother and friend for the little ones? There was a great crush at the so cial function where Clyde expected to meet his friend and receive an intro duction to Miss Elsden. As fate would have It, his friend wus detained from the function through illness. Clyde feasted his eyes on peerless Patty at a distance. Wan dering about the conservatory, he was fully amazed to come across his" broth er Ronald arrayed as the best of them, and an unusual smile of satisfaction on his usually serious face. "Well, I. never expected to' meet you here," Clyde expressed himself with a bln.ntless devoid of any delicacy. "Whv not?" challenged Ronald im pertuvbably. "I thought you had eschewed fash Ion's follies." "Have you?" "No, but er I say, Ronald, you look young and full of life. How long has this been going on?" "Since you deserted me and showed no inclination to provide our three lit tle ones with a mother.' "You are mistaken," spoke Clyde hur riedly. "I'm ready.

The introduction took place. Thence forth for the remainder of the evening Clyde devoted himself exclusively to Impressing Miss Elsden with n duo sense of his Importance. And of his intentions, as well. He was a rapid wooer, and finally In a quiet corner of the conservatory he began a dis sertation on his profound regard for Tier" that warned her that a declara tion of love was coming. She arose to leave him. "You are treading on forbidden ground, Mr. Martin," she observed with becoming dignity. "In order to save you embarrassment I must anti cipate what must soon be public. I am already engaged." "Oh, come, now I Er, I say M floun dered Clyde. "I never dreamed that. Happy mortal ! May I ask who he is?" "Yes," replied Miss Elsden Incisive ly.

Two men. charged with being members of the band that held up and robbed the First Na tional bank of Milltown, X. J., Dec. 20, escaping with $S0,0(H), and believed to have been implicated in tiie -murder and robbery Dec. Iti of Edwin M. An drews, Fifth avenue jeweler, were ar rested here last night -with their wives. Liberty bonds valued at .$18,000, said to be part of the Milltown robbery hot, were found in a suitcase carried by the women, police said, and added that all four carried firearms. Coincident with these arrests came an announcement that Police Commission er Enright's latest measure to curb lawlessness -the calling out of more than 700 new policemen' for training had been dealt a knockout blow when the board of aldermen failed to vote necessarv funds for their pav. The appropriation of .$1,130,300, passed recently by the board of esti mate, was submitted to the aldermanic Ixidy for final sanction in the form of au thorization for a special bond issue. In denying the appropriation,- the aldermen promised to reconsider it at a future meeting. The men taken into custody last night said they were Jerome B. Chaffee, 2S, ami Harry Bitzberger, 30. They were halted when they alighted from an au tomobile at Seventy-Second street and Broadway. Resisting arrest, they fought for several minutes before being sub dued. The women, who followed closely in a taxicab. surrendered. Fifth avenue was crowded with y hrisimas stioppers when two men en tered the jewelry shop of Andrews on trie c'.gnui noor ot a ounuing in the cen ter of a fashionable shopping district. Andrews was alone. He is believed to have been shot in an attempt to frus trate the robbery. The jewelry sales men who entered while the safe was be ing rifled, were bound and gagged. The men esoajwd with gems valued at $100, 000. Tlie night of Dee. 20 four bandits entered the bank at Milltown. lound and gagged the watchman, placed the hsit in handbags and fled. Releasing himself from his bonds the watchman sounded an alarm. A Hsse was formed and after a long chase1' through the Jer sey marshes, two men were captured. During their trial they are said to have given information regarding the identity of their confederates. While operating under various aliases the prisoners are accused by the police of having taken part in many sensa tional hold-ups and robberies through out the country. They have been con nected, the police asserted, with a recent Philadelphia bank robbery, and served five year sentences in Leavenworth pen itentiary. They are said to have es caped from the prison at New Bedford. Mass., where they were serving terms for burglary. The prisoners were grilled by the po lice and are said to have confessed that they were mom Iters of the band that per petrated the Milltown rohliery. A third man, ,who accompanied them yesterday, was Charged with being a fugitive from hisfice. He said he was Chester J. Levine. A charge of acting in concert with Bitzberger and Chaffee in receiving tulen bonds will be preferred against him later, police said.

Piscataqua River. Fishways on the l'isquataqua river are fast Hearing completion and the one built by the. American Woolen company on its Dover darn has been finished and the water turned on. The tishway is said t-o be one of the finest in the state. It is built of reinforced concrete and will elevate the fish 'Si feet in their passage over the dam. ' "'' The water is taken first into a con crete flume, two feet thick, and is on a level with the water in the mill ' jrand. From this flume are three gates of dif ferent elevation to take the water at high, medium and low. pitch and as it-is necessary to have the quick water at the foot of tho fishway as near the dam as possible, the checks, run cross way, or parallel, and next to the dam itself five in number,, eight feet square and then live in the opposite direction, and back again, then two and one check IS in all discharging with quick water be side the log sluice. Fish, in going up stream, always breast the main current and will some times hang for weeks below a dam," look ing for a place to go by. Here the quick water from the dam and fishway is prac tically the same, so that the fish, mov ing to and fro in the swift current, readily find the "mouth of the fishway, and passing upward from check. IS in all soon go over the top into the mill pond above. Each check also has a rest pool, or locket, where the current is not ns swift, but forms an eddy where the lish can rest, if necessary, before going over. The fishway on the l'iscataqua. however, will be used only by salmon, and mostly sea salmon, which are exceedingly lively and can jump any ordinary darn in high wafer. i.-owyard Falls, on Ship Pond sf ream, north of Sebac Laket is a great place fo salmon jumping and often in Artgust and early iu September visitors travel foe miles to see them jump. The falls ara about 15 feet high, and the fish, aftee circling at the foot, jump seven or eight feet into the air, striking the falls a lit tle over half way up. and so, go on over the top. Occasionally the salmon will not strike straight in but a little side ways when it will be thrown back, some times on the rocks below. Tlie writer has counted 15 good jumps in 12 minutes and photographed the salmon in the air as they were heading into the falls. Sea salmon will often make a clean jump of 15 to Hi feet over a dam or fall of water. Kenebec Journal. ' - Fishy.
