RECORD FOOTBALL RUSH
It Came When a New and Ugly Tackle
Broke Into the Game
One day, while the whaleship Nar
whal was tied to an ice floe in Bering
sea and the lookouts were at the mast
head scanning the open water south
ward for the appeapaxice of whales, a
party of the forecastlemeu made a foot
ball of rags and cord and went over the
bow to kick the nwsshapeu thing round
on a smooth stretch of ice a short dis
tance from the vessel.
The fun was ?t its height and the
men were just getting the kinks out
of their when the harpooner in
the crow's nest called softly down to
the deck that a polar bear had scented
the men on the ice and was excitedly
making his way toward them. No
warning was given to the football
players. Before long the bear appeared
close to the edge of the floe, and he
seemed to be in a great hurry. He
shambled rapidly along in and out
among the hummocks, and every few
feet lie would pull himself erect to
sniff the air and crane his head anxious
ly. Closer and closer he came, and
it was plain that lie grew more aud
more excited. The men on board the
ship got out their rifles to make sure
that the bear did no harm to the men
on the ice.
The gaunt ice bear eame to the last
hummock that separnted liini from the
held of play. One of the men was in
the act of "kicking the stuffing" out
of the ball, when the bear suddenly
emerged into clear view. The bull feil
on the ice, the man's leg came hur
riedly down on the ice, and the man
himself- broke for the ship like a deer,
was a succession of frightened
shouts, and the ice became alive with
running men. Never was there a
quicker change of scene. Men stum
bled and fell and yelled and fought for
a grasp of the rope ladder.
The men on deck were so convulsed
with laughter that they made no effort
to shopt the bear. And after the first
whoop the bear became so thoroughly
alarmed at the consternation he hail
caused that he turned tail and fled in
a clumsy gallop the ice floes.—

EFFERVESCFNT DBINXS
They Allay the Tnnst Quickly, but the
Effect Is Not Lasting
The reason why we like effervescent
urinks is that the slight stinging or
pricking of the (.alate that follows on
dr nking liquids charged with carbonic
acid gas produces immediately an in
creased flow of saliva and "thus di
minishes for the moment the seoantion
of thirst,
But the relief they bring is only
temporary and is followed by a reac
tion in which the thirst is actually in
creased. The salivary glands are no
more susceptible to perpetual stimula
tion than any other, and after each pe
riod of excitement one of depression
supervenes. Young soldiers on route
marches quickly come to understand
this and to discover that the more wa
ter they drink the more thirsty they
get and that it is best, therefore, to
limit the quantity swallowed. More
over, the saliva contains matters of
great importance for the digestion of
food, particularly of starchy foods, and
if it all be washed down the throat
into the bowels as soon as it is secreted
a great part of itff usefulness is lost.
It would, therefore, seein that a less
wasteful way, physiologically, of pro
moting the flow of saliva "might be
adopted witn profit. The consumption
of fruit containing subacid juices is
about the most excellent way.—St.
Louis Post-Dispatch.

He Got the Cheapest
Old Hiram PinUion was a born tra
der and a penny pineher besides. He
was never willing to pay the price of
anything he wanted, and all the shop
keepers at the village dreaded to see
him enter their stores.
One day he did a little trading at
Nelson's shoe store. He tried on a
dozen pairs of boots, but could find
nothing that was not too expensive.
Then lie guessed he would get a pair
of rubbers. He rejected a pair that
cost a dollar and another that cost 65
cents. Finally the clerk brought him
a pair for 50 cents. They seemed to
fit well enough* but Hiram was still
dissatisfied.
"Hain't ye got any rubbers that are
cheaperf" he askeil.
"No, air,'' declared the irritated
clerk, "we , haven't. That pair
you've got on is the cheapest, poorest,
most no account rubber there is made!"
So 'Hiram bought them. — Youth's

RICHEST ISLAND ON EARTH
Yet Java, With Its Amazing Crops,
Hardly Pays the Dutch
"Java has a population of more than
40,000,000. It is a Dutch possession
and the richest island on eartih," SHV»
a man who has spent most of his life
there. "The governor general has nine
palaces in different parts oif the island
and a regiment of soldiers to escort
him from one to anotheT. Two-fifths
of the sugar of the world is produced
in Java. Labor costs little or nothing.
The natives work for something liko
$2.50 a year. The principal products
are sugar, cotton, rice, cagu nuts and
citronella. Of the total population
there are probably 30.000,000 Java
nese, and the rest are Chinese and Por
tuguese. The white population numbers
about 150,000, mostly Dutch, and there
are few Americans. The immensity of
the production of .lava may be esti
mated from the fact that the internal
revenue is nearly 1200,000,000.
"Notwithstanding the big popula
tion, the richness of the soil and the
great productivity Java is hardly a pav
ing possession to the Dutch. It takes
all that Java yields to pay the expenses
of fighting the natives of the other is
lands, like Flores, where the inhabit
ants are savages, mostly head hunt
ers. Borneo is the largest island in
the south sea, but its population is
small compared with that of Java.
"Under the conditions of civilization
it is surprising, perhaps, that the
standard of morals among the natives
is high, yet it is a fact. Violation of
the marriage contract is almost un
heard of."—Washington Post.
King's Counsel
King's counsel differ from all other
English lawyers. King's counsel are
appointed by pat out from the crown,
on application from the lord chancel
lor, and can act as judges of assize
when named in the commission. They
have in many ways precedence over
other lawyers and rank among them
selves according to seniority. The
robes of king's counsel are of silk in
stead of stuff like those of ordinarv
barristers. It is . the established rule
of the profession that no king's counsel
shall conduct any case without the
employment of a junior counsel.
Vegetable Sponges
What are known as vegetable sponges
grow freely in Ecuador during the
rainj; season. They grow on vines, like
pumpkins. The poor people utilize
them for washing dishes and when
bathing, claiming they are superior to
the animal sponge.
