CAT A MARRIAGE BAROMETER.
Texan Possesses " Feline That
Strangely Fascinating to Lovers.
Beaumont, Tex; H. H. Russell of
Orange, Tex., the thriving lumber city,
who Is -treasurer of Orange county, is
the owner of a most remarkable cat
that is strangely fascinating to sweet
hearts both old and young. Not only1
that, but the friendship of this feline,
whose name is Delhia, is a sure indi
cation of early marriage with those
whom she condescends to bestow her
frendshlp and acquaintance upon.
Delhia has followed thus far in her
three or four year career a dozen or
more couples to the altar.
Mr, Russell has watched his pussy
cat, and when she makes friends with
the young lady, or perchance it may
be an old maid, Mr. Russell prepares
for the announcement that the for
tunate personage is soon to be mar
ried. Mr. Russell has come to regard
the-cat Delhia as every one does who
knows the feline,, as 'a . first aid to
Cupid," and he .declares there are. sev-.
eral young ladies in Orange making
goo-goo eyes at his pussy endeavoring
to make friends with her.
The matter has leaked out that on
account of this cat's strange influence
on marriage, that young ladies and the
young men, too, are constantly trying
to steal Delhia. For this reason Mr.
Russell is careful to lock the cat up
securely every night before going to
bed, and she is carefully watched dur
ing the daytime by Mrs. Russell and

COMPLIMENT FOR THE PASTOR.
Remark Not So Intended Really
Amounted to as Much.
Aaron Bancroft, the father of the
historian, was a Massachusetts clergy
man who revolted against the Calvin
ism of the day. The young minister
found himself held at arm's length by
the surrounding clergy. In "The
Life and Letters of George Bancroft"
Mr. M. A. DeW. Howe quotes the fol
lowing Item from the old minister's
"An honest but very intelligent
farmer of my parish, some ten years
ago, accosted me in this manner:
" 'Well, Mr. Bancroft, what" do you
think the people of the old parish
say of me now?'
"I answered, T hope something
" 'They say, "If we find fault with
him he does not mind it at all; and
if we praise him he does not mind it,
but keeps steadily on his" own way;
we therefore have concluded that it is
best to let him alone.-'-"
"The farmer mentioned the fact as
a subject .of laughter, but I thought,
and still think that, taking the declar
ation in its bearings, it was the pret
tiest compliment I have received
through my whole life." Youth's

Description of Last Resting Place of
"Genghis Khan, the Mongol chief, in
the thirteenth century proved himself
one of the world's greatest warriors.
His tomb exists at Edchen Koro, and
is described In Count de Lesdain's
"From Pekln to Sikkim:" "Two small
tents, one behind the other, and con
nected by a very low inner door, made
of worn-out felt, and admitting
through their rents the rain and tho
wind, are the 'monuments' destined
to perpetuate the renown of the
greatest conqueror the world has
known. . . .- The ashes of the body
of Genghis -Khan are deposited in a
kind of chest, cubic in shape, and
placed on a wooden support made of
small colored pillars, adorned with
paintings on all Its sides, except that
facing south, which is covered with a
finely worked copper plate represent
ing a divinity surrounded by four ani
mals which are difficult to identify.
. . The tomb. In fact, has not always
been here, but it Is diflicult- to know
exactly where the first descendants
of the great emperor laid his remains."
Give .Your Dog More Water.
Fully one-half of canine misery
comes, .from lack of drinking water.
The agony of thirst frays dog temper
to the vicious point, and impatient
animals are much like cross humanity,
ready to resent an act or look.
Thoughtful families leave basins of
fresh water where stray animals can
find it, butjhey are .not many, and
they will never do as much good as
running water in places where it can
be reached at will. Dog lovers are
many, but they do not always give due
attention, to the animals -which more
than repay their kindness and affec
tion. Let us make a New Tear's res
olution to use our influence to estab
lish a, few sensible preventives of mad
dog scares, chief of which is plenty of
fresh water for all animals.
