Alejandro Gil. a Colombian pries an May 16t celebrated a mass for the repose of the soul of Rafael Anguio. a. philanthropist who a year ago died as the result of punishment imposed on him by the government for not complying with the official demands for provisions for troops for a poss;-. ble imbroglio with Salvador. The priest spoke in eulogistic terms of the dead, concluding by censuring , the government for its part in the ! death of Angulo. In making these outspoken charges the government officiads forced him from the country. The priest decided to leave but as ho is an orator of no mean ability has not been permitted to do so. Instead of being banished, he was arrested and severely treated by the troops and taken to the penitentiary where ? he was forced to don a convicts' garb. Yesterday the Mexican minister had arranged a tea in honor of President Manuela Carblrera. Just as the president was preparing to start for the Mexican Legation, a squad of soltVoTYi rmnnsite direc tion conducting the priest, whom they were maltreating in every way possible. The priest was so weak that he could scarcely walk. Finally they arrived in front of the Mexican legation and Alejandro Gil. seeing a possible way of escape rushed into the Legation doorway. The soldiers, however, rushed after him, and beating him mercilessly dragged him from- his place of hiding. The Mexican minister, hearing of this violation in the precincts of the Legation, rushed to the President and demanded an explanation. This was refused and the minister in a rage, declared the proposed tea postponed. Se is expected to take vigorous action in the matter, regarding the possible outcome of which there are many wild rumors current. BALTIMORE'S NEW MAYOR Si/lTt. E.

Something happened one day in James Russell Lowell's office which j suggested the following: There was a j time when the fastest sailing ships in the world were built in the shipyards j of New England. About that time an American clipper and an English vaclit were entering the barber of Genoa together, and there was a race between the clipper and the yacht, and the clipper won in the race. When the two vessels were in port the owner of the English yacht, a person of polished manners, came on board the American and very handsomely congratulated the captain of the clippar uj>on his achievement, which he said was all the more remarkable in view of the fact that it was the first time that his yacht had ever been beaten. The liberal minded old Yankee captain replied: "Well, now, that's curious. It's the first time tlie Polly Ann ever beat anything." When Golf Was Serious. Golfr players complain tliat their favorite game is not taken seriously enough by the people, and they protest j against the tone of levity in which newspaper paragrapliers discuss the game. There was a time when golf was taken seriously enough, as this excerpt from an ancient law document attests: On September 9, 1G37. Francis Broune. sono to John Broune, wabster in Banff, was convicted by the borrow or justice court of the burgh of breaking into the buithe of Patrick SBand and stealing therefrom "sume go iff ballis." and the judges ordainit the said Francis to be presentlie tacken and careit to the gallowshill of this burghe. and hangit on the gallows thereof to the death, whereof William Wat, dempster of the said assyis, gaiva domme. Whelkii us 3Ionej". Dewarra, a currency of New Britain, is an instance of lioiv the spoils of the chase may be turned to account as the outward and visible sign of wealth. Dewarra is made by stringing the sliells of a dog- whelk upon the ribs of palm leaves. These strings may be retailed at so much a fathom?usually the price is equivalent to about three shillings a fathom length.?or they may be made into various articles of personal adornment to be worn on great occasions. In New Britain the dewarra hoarded up by a rich man is produced at his funeral and divided i among his heirs in much the same kind of way as personal property is divided among us. i Kisli Die* Bad For the Voice. Fine voices, it is said, are seldom j found In a country where fish or meat diet prevails. Those Italians who.eat the most fish (those of Naples and Genoa) have few fine singers among them. The sweet voices are found in the Irish women of the country, and not of the towns. Norway is not a country of singers, because they eat too much fish, but Sweden is a country of grain and song. The carnivorous birds croak; grain eating birds sing. For Unbhy'N Eyes. Shopman?You want a nice motto to hang up in the house, ma'am V How would "Heaven Bless Our Home" or "No Place Like Home" do?

When he lost his entire Torture, a lady, 'whd'tires one of his best friends and ah: ardent admirer of his works, hastened in alarm and distress to End hiih. She met him in the street, penniless and cheerful. "l'ou must come to our home." she ; said. "I was coins there." he replied, and ) then began a visit which prolonged it- | self into years, during which La Foil- j taine never seemed -to be troubled by a thought that he was dependent. .Nor j did the lady or her family have any j other feeling than one of delight and ; pride that he made his home with 1 them.

I am pleased to hear it," was his remarkable reply. The Prairie Doff. I An old cherished superstition about | the prairie dog Is thus ruthlessly | brushed aside in the American Natural I History by William T. Elornaday: It is not true that the prairie dog lives in peace and harmony in the same burrow with the rattlesnake anil burrowing owl. The sriakes would make short work of the ybiing prnirte dogs, and the latter would* quickly kill tlie i owl! It is safe to surmise that when j a deadly and quarrelsome rattler invades the home of a prairie dog family the latter speedily seeks a home elsewhere. The burrowing owl Is in the'liabit of taking refuge in abandoned burrows and nesting in them to save the labor of digging a burrow for itself. In the Philadelphia Geological garden Mr. A. K. Brown once tried the I experiment of associating burrowing i owls and prairie dogs. The owls were | immediately killed and torn to pieces j by the dogs. Ferdinand. The first half of this word is feorb, | <4youth" or "life." . The second half is j a little uncertain, but may be conjee- j 1 tured to be probably nunth, "daring." It was the Spanish Goths who gave it it? earliest vogue in the peninsula as Fernando or Fenian. San Fernando, king of Castile, sent it on to Aragon and thence to Naples, where it became Ferdinando and figures in "The Tempest" accordingly as Ferdinand. With Ferdinand and. Isabella its fame grew worldwide. Again, ii^Spain itself it became Hernando and Ilernan, in which Inst shape it was immortalized by Cortes. Who would have suspected the conqueror of Mexico of bearing a name which on analysis turns out to be pure Anglo-Saxon? ? Longman's Magazine. Losln^r a Conple of Anchors. "It makes rne weary," said the skipper of a clipper ship just in from South America, "to- buy a newspaper just after I have landed and read that my vessel suffered no loss from the storm except slipping a couple of anchors. How many persons who read that know that ships' anchors are sold by the pound and that each pound costs from 5 to 7 cents? I carried two 5,000 pound anchors and the loss of them means that I am out $000. That' I wipes the profit of a voyage in double | quick time, doesn't it? Some folks talk about .ship anchors as though they ; didn't cost more than marlinspikes."? New York Press. . Lovemnklxif? In Borneo. When a dyak of Borneo makes love ho helps the girl in the hardest portion of her daily toil. If she smiles upon him, no matter how sweetly, he does not immediately respond, but waits until the next dark night. Then he steals to her house and wakens her as she lies asleep beside her parents. Tlie parents, if they approve, make no sign, but sleep on or pretend to. If the girl accepts she rises and takes from her lover the betel and sweetmeats he has brought her. That seals their betrothal, and he departs as he came, neither speaking nor being spoken to. A Literary Cnrlosity. Here is a literary curiosity: "Sator arepo tenet opera rotas." It is curious because it spells the same words backward as forward. The first letter of each word placed consecutively spells the lirst word, the second letter of each spells the second -word, and so on. The last letters read backward spell the last word, the next to the last letters the next to the last word, and so on throughout. There are also as many letters in each word as there are words in the sentence. Warm Pronpect.

Mrs. Bracy has been in the hotel business for the past twenty-five years, and the overhauling and refurnishing which she intends giving the house will no doubt place it up to its former high standard.
