HAPPY CHILDREN OF BURMAH. Uncontrolled, They Riot in Sheer Joy of Life, Says Writer. Burmese children are the spoilt chil , dren of the world, according to V. C Scott O'Connor, in his book, "The Silk en East," he says that they are never punished by their parents, who uni versally adore them. They grow up In the open air with all the grace of young, unchecked life. "The sheer Joy ■of life abides in them," says he, "and they seem to live perpetually at play in the village street, where they play a game of ninepins with the great seeds of a jungle creeper; in the monastery, where they lie upon the 'floor and scream out their lessons with lusty delight; In the river, in which they splash and plunge before they can walk; at the play, where they crawl about among the feet of the prima donna and the posing kings, and at the pagoda, where they hold flowers before them with faces screw ed up to gravity, with laughter pent up behind ft. And if there be any dispute about the good looks of their elders there can be none as to the prettiness of Burmese children." Public Medical Fund. The city of Zurich, Switzerland, Im poses a medical tax of about 87 cents a head on the whole population above the age of sixteen, which creates an annual revenue of $100,000. This Is divided among forty doctora, who re ceive $2,500 each. In return for this salary they will be compelled to give medical attendance to all citizens of Zurich who may claim their services.

John Billups of Ari zona decided to take a street car ride, and see the various beauties of the capital, says a dispatch from Wash ington. He entered a car, took a seat, and looking at the Places of historical interest he passed. Coming to an uninteresting stretch he looked around the car and discovered a very beautiful woman sitting in seat with an ill-favored man. Directly behind the woman sat another looking intently out of the window. Col. Billups was attracted by the beautiful woman just as any Southern gentleman is attracted by a great pic ture or a fine horse. He looked at her in open mouthed admiration, paying the tribute the real Southern gentle man pays to beautiful women wher ever found. devoted himself to man, Suddenly, to the great, amazement of Col. Billups, the lady turned and winked roguishly at the man behind her. It was a full-sized, enticing wink. The man looked out of the window without noticing. Col. Billups watched. Three times the lady turned and winked at the stolid citizen be hind her, and three times the man re fused to notice the advance. This was too much for Col. Billups. He moved across to the seat where the man was sitting. They rode for a square, and the lady turned again and winked. "Sir," said Col. Billups to the man looking out the window, "it is a beau tiful winter's day." "It Is," he replied, still gazing out on the street. "Sir," said Col. Billups, "have you remarked that extremely beautiful lady who sits in the seat directly in front of us?" "She's good looking enough," re plied the stolid one, still looking out of the window. ''Sir, said Col. John Billups, "I am a Southern man and an admirer of all that is beautiful in nature. I say to you that that lady is fair game. That man with her is not her husband." "I know it," replied the person who was gazing out of the window. "1 am." Pork and Beans.

When Senator Deboe was elected from Kentucky from Joe Blackburn's district, an ovation was given him upon his return to his little mountain town, a barbecue lor which several fatted calves and other animals killed. Much Impressed he made a speech of some length and eloquence, is, he began all right, but he made slight miscue at the finish. That was what he said: "Friends and Fellow Citizens: feel this to be the greatest occasion of my life. I am deeply gratified—more deeply than I can say—by this honor you have done me In sending me Senator to the capital from the most splendid state in the Union, from the magnificent Blue Grass country, from the only state that can boast of the finest whisky, the loveliest horses and the fastest women in the world."— Pittsburg Dispatch. were That a 1 as How Thackeray Worked. When Thackeray was In Richmond, Va„ during his visit to the United States, John Eaten Cooke asked him if he ever dictated his words to amanuensis. an Thackeray that he composed a good deal in this way. The whole of "Esmond" was dictated, he said, an assurance that will surprise most admirers of that finished work. Thackeray added: "I also dictated all of 'Pendennis.' I can't say I think much of 'Penden nis'—at least of the execution. It cer tainly drags about the middle, but I had an attack of illness about the time I reached that part of the book, and could not make it any better than it is." answered Shah Guards His Jewels.

DISFIGURING ULCER People Looked at Her in Amazement —Pronounced Incurable—Face Now Clear as Ever—Thanks God for Cuticura. Mrs. P. Hackett, of 400 Van Buren St., Brooklyn, N. Y., says: "I wish to give thanks for the marvelous cure of my mother by Cuticura. She had a severe ulcer, which physicians had pronounced incurable. It was a ter rible disfigurement, and people would stand in amazement and look after her. After there was no hope from doctors she began using Cuticura Soap, Ointment, and Pills, and now, thank God, she is completely cured, and her face is as smooth and clear as ever." HYENA KNEW ITS FRIEND. Apparently Vicious Creature Had Memory for Kindness. A few years ago in one of the men ageries exhibited during the races at Brighton, England, was a striped hyena, which, to the keeper and all around him, displayed the usual fero cious habits inherent in animals of his kind. Among the spectators was a young man who fearlessly approached the den where it was snarling and snapping furiously, and, putting his hand through the wires, patted the animal on Its head. • In an instant the hyena gave symp toms of the greatest delight, bounded about in an ecstacy of joy and rubbed himsel fagainst the young man's hand, seeming to be overjoyed at his ca resses. had been taken when a cub by this young man and brought by nim to England and sold to the keeper of a menagerie, and although seven years had elapsed since then the recollec tion of the gentle treatment he had received had been gratefully remem bered by this apparently untamable creature.

Monarch Fond of Puddings. "Bluff King Hal," otherwise Henry VIII. of England, was exceedingly fond of puddings. At one time he gave a certain Mistress Cornwallis a house in Aldgate, for herself and her heirs forever, "In reward of fine puddings." In King Henry VIII.'s private accounts occur again and again entries of his rewards to differ ent housewives for bringing him pud dings. A typical Instance runs thus: "Item. The same day paid .o the wife that made the king podings at Hamp ton corte, vis. viijd." This would be about $1.75, but its value was much greater when the entry was made. This love for "fine puddings" explains much in the familiar rotund figure of King Hal. The IT. S. Dept, of Agriculture gives to Salzer's Oats its heartiest en dorsement.

He regained it by the simple method of reading a chapter of Dickens before dinner every day. Sometimes he would read about the Christmas dinner of the Crummels, and again he would read about an other character's enjoyment of butter ed toast; but always the chapter would be upon something good to eat. The very thought of how others enjoy ed their food would awake In this hypochondriac a hunger that made his dinner a pleasure instead of a tor ture.
