Camara's departure rrom train for the I'hlllirrlne island-. The squadron was con.strtuted June 26. the day after the Spanish fleet reached Port Said, and only after the navy de partment was convinced beyond a doubt mm Aumirai tamara had actually paia ion ior nis neet through the canal. The war board immediately approved Captain Mahan's plan to send a strong fleet across the Atlantic to menace Spain and compel Camara's return for the defense of the peninsula itself. If the Spanish admiral failed to accept ims (.nauenge ana continued toward tne cast, commodore Watson was dl witru iu ioiiow mm with all possible uispuitn. ine mere announcement of tne ecneme, as it was shrewdly calcu lated to do, together with the pitiable condition in which Camara found the strongest members of his fleet after he had passed the canal, resulted In his prompt return to Spain and removed Watson's cruise. Alleged Secret Teaee Negotiation. Paris, July 23.-The Matin publishes a paragraph taying that while nothing definite Is known, it is rumored that Senor Leon y Castillo (the Spanish am bassador at Paris) has been Instructed to approach General Horace Porter (United States ambassador to France) with the view of opening secret peace negotiations. Up to i o'clock there had not been any meeting between Senor Castillo and General Porter, although It is said possibly such a meeting may develop from the situation. Any nego tiations, however, will be kept abso lutely secret until they have reached a stage when they will assume an official character. Camarn to w Await Event, Gibraltar, July 23.

"THiUrjg about cows," said Andy Ilcndcrscu, "I really think that I had one of the most peculiar experiences with the animals in question that ever befell a citizen of west Texas. It was soon after I went to El Paso, some tea years ago, and before I had pos familiar with the vagaries of the El Paso cli mate. "I had Bettled oa a very pretty ruuch some miles out of the progressive fiua tier city and was doing nicely until I decided to go into the Latter bnsiue&c I sent east for a dozen fine Jersey cows and began operations. Well, the cows came on, and I hustled the butter busi ness from the jump. Things progressed nicely for a month, vrhen the weather grew very warm and the atmosphere very dry. - The Rio Grande dwindled until a roach could have waded across. Every bit of moisture disappeared, but this did not affect mtybecaase I had a fine artesian well on the ranch and plenty cf water. I observed, however, that my cows were losing milk day by day, until at last they were perfectly dry. 1 was astounded, for they had plenty of feed and lota of water from the welL I couldn't understand it and determined to investigate. "I got up an hour before daylight and examined the cows; and, to my aston ishment, I found the adders of the cows heavy with milk. . I did not milk the the animals, but simply watched and waited developments. Day dawned and the cows lazily meandered into the pas ture, and I followed. The sun came up. and with the sun came the terrible dry a ess, but it didn't feaze me in the least What knocked mo out was the sight of my cows' udders. They were growing smaller and smaller as I looked until they were as flaccid as a punctured tire. Then I tumbled. The dryness of the at mosphere simply evaporated the milk through the walls of the udder. What did I do? Why. I varnished the milking apparatus of the beasts and the milk couldn't ooze through the flesh. That stopped it "New Orleans Times Democrat A SENSE OF HUMOR." Iealloek Ilroken.

I regard a senso of humor as ouo of the most precious gifts that can be vouchsafed to a human being. Ho is not necessarily a better man for having it, but ho is a happier ouo. It readers him indifferent to good or Lad fortune It enables him to eujoy his own discoinfl- turo. Blessed with this sense ho is never undaly elated or cast down. No one caa rufile his temper. No abuse disturbs his enuaaimity. Bores do uot boro him Humbugs do not humbug him. Solemn airs do not iuiposo on him. Seatimental gash docs not influence him. The follies of the moment have no hold ou him. Titles and decorations aro but childish baubles iu his eyes. Prejudico does not warp his judgment Ho is never in con rpit or out of conceit with himself. He abhors all dogmatism. The world is a stage oil which actors strut and fret for his edification and amusement and ho pursues tho even current of his way, in vulnerable, doing what is right and proper according to his lights, but ut terly indifferent whether what he does finds approval or disapproval from oth ers. If Hamlet had had any senso of hu mor, he would not have bcea a nuisance to himself and to all surrounding him. London Truth.

It is an excellent thing to give chil dren as soon as they arrive at about 12 years, or even before, a little allowance for spending money and an account book. Show them how to keep an ac count of small expenditures and make it a condition that they do so if they wish to receive their allowance. There is no instruction more necessary to chil dren than instruction in the wise man agement of money. Childreu should bo. taught early what true economy is and to exercise their judgment not their fancy in making purchases. A little instruction uow, and experience if need be, of tho genuine discomforts of extrav agance may save them from much suf fering in after years. New York Ledger. Why Is It Ever Thna?
