If you should want an island—that is, an uninhabited Island—for the purpose of occupying It alone, ttobiuson Crusoe like, or to use it for romantic fiction or for any other purpose, to the exclusion of all others in the world, you need have no trouble In finding one If you see fit to make a journey to the Indian ocean. In the waters between Madagascar and India you can find more than 15,000 of them, where there is not a human be ing and where you can, if you will, be monarch of all you survey. An English traveler has recently been among the small Islands that dot the western end of the Indian ocean to make an inventory of them and re ports that he counted 10,100 and found only about 000 of them inhabited. Now, there Is a good chance for any one who may want an island. These particular islands are not large, as islands go, but very many of them are sufficient for the purpose of a Itob luson Crusoe or any other novel here or for even a small colony of ship wrecked mariners or other persons who might be cast on one of them or seek for the purpose of making a home pret ty much out of the busy world. Some of tliem are only an acre or two, well elevated above the tide, while others are a quarter of a mile in diam eter anil running from that up to a mile or two In length and a quarter or less of the length in breadth. Many of them are granitic structures that rise steeply from 20 to 100 feet, well cover ed with rich soil, through which small fresh water streams hurry to the sea, which they reach after flowing over beaches of glistening calcareous sand that are begirt by coral reefs, which form walls about the islands. Shoving the Qneer. The game of counterfeiting in this country is played by people of all na tionalities, and. although some women and children are used as tools, men take the principal parts. After having made the coin the great problem is how to convert It into good money. The maker rarely takes part in that opera tion. It is the business of gangs, which consist usually of two persons, known as the "holder" and the "shover." The holder carries a stock of the counterfeit money, and the shover has one piece. This he takes to a store or a saloon and buys something for a small amount, and when he comes Into the street the holder sees him from his po sition a block away, joins him, receives the good money and hands him another counterfeit. The object Is to work so that the shover, if detected, may plead inno cence and prove that the piece is the only one that he has and that he has no other money. Some clever operators go so far as to mix good coin with the bad.

Locke in Boston GIGSe. BAIT FOR SUNFISH. )ne Man's Method of Going? Fishiug With His Boots. There is about as much sport in catching the big sunflsh as in lifting out the crappie if you can get the former in one of its savage moods. Peiker is a great grafter on sunflsh. He has got a dozen different kinds of bait, but he says that it is all nonsense to trouble about digging worms. He declares that beef run through a ham burg steak grinder is just the proper caper for the suuflsli at Creve Cceur lake. The tougher the beef the better, as it will cut in Ioug strips like angle worms. "When the sunflsh are biting right smart. It is about all that I can do to be kept in the shop," said Peiker. "I be lieve me and the sunflsh are the most cheering things out. Do you know, I have notieed old time fishermen at Breese's lake wading around in the shallow water, wliore the sunfisli are found at spawning time, as carefully as if they were fishing for trout. Now, it is different with me when I go out with my hamburg steak to feed the golden bellied beauties on. I just tie the line to each leg of my boots, take a little short rod in my hand and stride into the water and go ahead. On the bootleg lines I use red flies. Why, the sunflsh come up aud get stuck on my fly hooks three or four at a time. That's the way to catch a mess of fish in a few hours. "I can catch crappie with crawfish tails to beat the band if I cannot get minnows. Crickets are great sunfisli and bass bait, while the katydids will make a crappie leave its bed at mid night. Just let your hook sing once with a green kat.v on, and if there Is a crappie within a radius of 10 or 15 feet it will come like a hound at a coursing match. If you get no bite, you can pull your freight up a few car lengths and try a new place. I caught all those big crap pie last week with craw tails. I could get uo minnows for love or money, so I chased up some crawfish and went In to win. When it comes to catfish bait. Just try tripe. It Is tough and cannot be pulled off the liook easily."— St. Louis Globe-Democrat. I'oalngr as a Model. A furious feature of a model's occu pation is her posing for an artist who is painting some one else. Wealthy people are capricious and often do not care to give long sittings. Therefore, after the artist has caught the expres sion of the face, he will call in a model to pose for the figure. Some models do not care to do this, as part of their enjoyment of their occupation consists in seeing themselves reproduced on canvas, but there are others who are quite willing to help till out. Various models have various points of excellence, and often a painter will employ at different stages in the prog ress of his work from three to four models for o:ie figure oil his canvas. One model is known for her coloring, another for her hands, another for hei' hair. An artist generally notes in his address hook the characteristics of a model after her name. These quota tions are taken at random from an artist's address book: "Fine young Jewess," "Kngii.sli, tall and slim, blond, costume:" "Good back," "Good figure, short legs, Ivory tone."—Cosmopolitan. are the most fatal of all dis eases. cm eveK|DNEY rULbl 0 The piles that annoy yon so will be quiokly and permanently healed if you use DeWitt's Witch Hazel Salve Beware of worthless counterfeits,—Nick Doffing & Co.

A Miller's Monument, A big millstone monument over a modest miller's grave is a unique sight near (ira.vtown, O. The millstone is lo cated in the center of an old burying ground and can be seen a mile away, coming down the hill.

Chiseled on the back of the monu ment is this poem: A MILLER'S MON'UMENT. [A millstone taken from his mill.] Beneath this stone a miller lies. Who left the world before tile rise Of modern ways of making flour And hence passed many a happy hour. He was not forced to speculate Nor on Chicago's movement wait.

An Approneli to Perpetual Motion, A clock is to be seen at Brussels which .'comes about as near being a perpetual motion machine as can be invented, for the sun does the winding. The following is the method by which it works: A shaft exposed to the solar rays causes an up draft of air, which sets the fan In motion. The fan actu ates mechanism which raises the weight of the clock until it reaches the top and then puts a break on the fan till the weight has gone down a little, when the fan is again liberated and proceeds to act as before. As long as the sun shines frequently enough and the machinery does not wear out the clock will keep In perpetual motion. Dr. Geo. Ewing, a practical physican of Smith's Grove, Ky., for over thirty years, writes his personal experience with Foley's Kidney Curo. "For years I have been great ly bothered with kidney trouble and enlarged postrate gland. I used everything known to the profession without relief, until I was in duced to use FOLEY'S KIDNEY CUKE.

The Prayer Before Gettyabarg. General Daniel Sickles told a story illustrating the tenderness ot President Lincoln's heart as well as his faith in Providence and his beautiful optimism. After Sickles had been wounded at Gettysburg he was removed to Wash ington, and the president called on him at the hospital. When the general described the battle and the awfuL slaughter, "Lincoln wept like a child." "While the two armies were converg ing," said Lincoln, "I went into my room and prayed as I never prayed be fore. I told God that if we were to win the battle he must do it, for I had done all that I could. I went from my room with a great load lifted from my shoulders, and from that moment I never had a doubt as to the result. We shall hear good news from Grant, who has been pounding away at Vicksburg for so many mouths. I am in a pro phetic mood today, Sickles, and I say that you will get well." "The doctors do not say so." "I don't care. Sickles, you will get well," persisted the president. And that afternoon. General Sickles goes on to say, a telegram was receiv ed from General Grant announcing the fall of Vicksburg. His own recovery soon followed. She Didn't Wear A Mask.
