Curious Opals round In the lluuiboo ol Manila. New York Tress: "Among the queer things found In tho Philippines are L'amboo opals, a vegotable gem which is Eometlnies discovered by the natives In tho Etem of tho bamboo," said a gentleman who ha3 lived for a number of years In Manila. "Not one piece of bamboo In a thousand, however, con tains n specimen, as tho bamboo grown there, as elsewhere. Is usually empty, but accident occasionally brings to light In the bamboo stem a small flint like material, which presents the ap pearance of a perfect opal. These modules are known to the natives aa 'tobacur,' and I have found from time to time during my long stay on the Islands seen several of these vegeta ble freaks of nature, which reproduced the characteristic lines of the opal so faithfully that exjerts were puzzled to know the differenco between the vegetable and the real specimen. "Be sides the tobneur gem there Is fre quently found In the Inside, of tho Phil ippine cocoanut a tiny substance re sembling a spongo, which, when ex posed to the heat of tne sun for several days, will reveal the presonce of sundry Email spheres that have all tho natural appearance end luster of tho pearl.

The truck driver expostulated with the car ette driver, and ordered him to take tho other sldo of tho street at once. The latter declined.

Ezre entered upon hi work with fnstlng nnj prnyor. The journey was a dangerous oue, especially with all the treasure he carried. Ezra renfb.ed tbo daiigor, but he went for ward In faith. The chief reform of Ezra was the abolishment of mixed marriage with the surrounding henthen. The course of tho Israelites was ruining and degrad ing the nation.

The story wbb narrated sc thrillingly and artistically that the royal boy listened spellbound and con tinued after It had ended to sit ab sorbed In meditation.

Ungllsliinso In Colonial Offlcos Advanced by Merit Only. There Is a marked feature of the fine body of Englishmen and foreigners generally In tho work In Egypt. And it is one of especial Interest to those who hope to see entrance to what, for want of a better name, may be called our colonlul service based upon a sys tem of appointment and advancement by merit alone. One of the most fre quent arguments made by American ndvocates of partisan public service, when the benefits of the British civil tervlce are advanced. Is that while the service may be admitted excellent, en trance to It Is by favor alone. There fore, they say, positions aro monopo lized by the sons of the rich and great, by what the French call "ions of fam ily." Nowhere have Englishmen bet ter proved their fitness for governing than at Cairo, and nowhere have the Eons of great men or the bearers of great names been so conspicuously ab sent. The majority of tho men who have made the Egypt of today have at the same time made themselves. Ey tl.ls It is not meant that they have risen from tho lowest ranks of society, what are generally known as gclf-mado mm. It Is the good fortune or rather the legitimate result of the system and the rewards which It offers that the best cli.88 of Englishmen enter the government service. They must oe men of good standing and good educa tion. Tho most fitting example Is fur nished In Lord Cromer, whose very mime Is now synonymous with things Egyptian. It is equally difficult to write of Egypt without mentioning hlc name, and once It Is mentioned, to withhold the fullest measure of ad miration and pralso for the record he has made. He began life us a younger and by no means wealthy mtmber of the financial house of Baring. Fam ily influence probably secured for him a nomination to be examined for the army, Just as such nominations are giveti to young Americans. But It was his capability and excellent record which secured for Major Evelyn Bar ing, after the fall of Ismail Pasha, ap pointment as one of the members of the dual control established over Egypt by England and France. Ex cept for an absence of threo years (1SS0-1S82) as financial member of the council of India, he has been In Cairo ever since. To write of what he has done Is but to write a history of the occupation, for he has been Its cor-ner-stono. And toduy he Is undoubt edly the greatest member of his fam ily, where twenty years ago he was probably the most obscure. IIarper'3 Magazine. ExriMrdlnry : of Itlnod-rolsonlng.

La Para Grande, the biggest grape vino In the world, has reached the end of Its long outdoor life, nnd will soon be cut down. Seventy-five years It has been growing on a rnnch In tho Monte tlto valley, near Santa Barbara, Cal., but It has shown signs of dying, so the owner, Albert Mngee, the Pittsburg stove manufacturer, has ordered It re moved. From the prido of the Cali fornia vineyards the vine will be turned into a museum curiosity. The Panta Barbara chamber of commerce will preserve It as a specimen of what the soil of Santa Barbara county Is nble to produce. La Para Grande has a trunk or main stem three feet and a half In circumference, and the trellis, higher than n man's head, on which (he spreading brnnches of the vino are supported, measures nearly six feet In pitch direction. In Its prime this single vine produced full four tons of grapes In a single year. Those days of Its glory are, however, long past. St. Louis Post-Dispatch. What io You.
