[r. Alfred Lester, the populat lety comedian, has told a funny ige sea story, which leads me to a tembrance of others. Mr. Lester, most comedians, started his stage eer as a player of heroes, villains, ivy fathers" and other familiar fig is of melodrama, and one night, at "Irty little theater In a third-rate ilsh town, or village, while expiring thirst on a raft, the actor felt, to annoyance, that the scene, intend* •to be most pathetic, was provoking flosions of unsuccessfully sup tsed laughter.

Jacques Cartier was one of the earliest of the French explorers in the new world. He followed Verrazzani to the shores of America, sailing from Sfc. Malo on April 20, 1534, with two small whips and 120 men. He first vouched the coast of Newfoundland and then sailed into the Gulf of St. Ijftwrence which he named during his second voyage in the following year. Hfe took possession of the Gaspe coast in the name of the sovereign of Efance, and erected on it a cross as a sign of French sovereignty. He won tjie good will of the Indians by his kindness and took two of them back to Erance with him, returning them the following year. In the St. Lawrence Cartier believed he had found the long-sought passage to India, and did not c|scover his mistaka until his second voyage. the more the people in front were consumed with laughter. Mr. Lester thought them the hardeBt-hearted wretches he had ever played before— until he knew what had been the cause of their merriment. It appeared from information received from the manager, that a scene-shifter, instead of lowering a back cloth of perilous rock, had introduced into the scene of turbulent waters the peaceful picture of a country Inn, with fields of poppies In the distance. The spectacle of a thirsty mariner calling huskily for "watah" while there were "licensed premises" almost at his elbow in the raging ocean naturally struck the au dience as having its humorous aspect 2000 pounds of hard coal $9.15 at Sabin's. mm* h: of STAGER Sea of Oranges. A sea covered with oranges is one of the unusual attractions near Ven tura, Cal., at the mouth of the Santa Clara river. Thousands upon thou sands of oranges floating on the ocean's surface, many of them strew ing the beach, give an indescribably beautiful golden hue to the sea. There are wonder for some time as to how the oranges got into the sea.! The belief was general that they came from washed out orchards in the east end of the county, owing to the high storm waters in the river. This is not the case, however. The oranges were deliberately thrown Into the Sespe creek from the Sespe bridge, 25 miles back from the coast From the Sespe they found their way back into the Santa Clara river and thence into the sea. The oranges are from the great packing houses in the Sespe country. They are known as culls, but most of them are good, or were when dumped off the bridge. It is claimed that only the best oranges can be shipped and sold. The Invention of Armor. The idea of the invention of armor for the protection of the body from weapons came from the ancients, who, noticing the natural armor of various kinds of animals, particularly the armadillo, imitated it. In early times before metal was used in armor making the warriors used rough hides to several thick nesses, and the first armor ever worn was made from slices taken from the hoofs of horses and fastened together with pegs. Fish scales and the scales of large snakes \«ere also gathered and fastened together until they formed a thick layer and were used as armor. The armor of the Middle Ages was a continuation of the ancient kind, made in the form of scales of iron or steel. Certain kinds of mail used in early times in England were copied from the shells of crabs and lobsters. —Sunday Magazine. Riverside Repartee. The lone fisherman was having mis erable luck, and the presence of a small boy did not contribute to his amiability. The youngster seemed greatly interested as the man im paled a struggling worm on a hook. "What yer fishin' fer?" inquired the boy. "SardineB," retorted the fisherman, testily.

Important Changes In Methods Building Them. of The modern method of levee build ing is nowhere more scientifically demonstrated than in the St. Francis district. In the early days of levee building it was thought that any pile of dirt approximately so high and so wide and running approximately paral lel with the river was good enough. The delusion cost thousands of dol lars. To-day the site of the projected levee is carefully cleared of all trees, the very roots being grubbed out, be cause these would decay otherwise, leaving channels through the soil un I der the dyke through which sipe water would quickly undermine the struc ture. Down the center of the cleared site a trench, called technically a muck ditch, is dug, and in this puddled clay or buckshot is filled. Upon this the earth dug from barrow pits adjacent to the levee on the landward side is placed. It is not dumped helter-skelter, but carefully spread in layers giving the finished mound the maximum strength and solidity. These layers extend both laterally and longitudinally across the levee, binding it in every direction. The work of placing the dirt is done principally by means of wheelscrapers operated by mules. Under some cir cumstances small flatcars are used, propelled by a locomotive and bring ing the earth from a greater distance. This is not often done except when continued rains have made the ground too soft for successful work with the teams—The World To-day. Fire Damp Detector. The fire damp detector of M. Hardy, a Frenchman, is an ingenious applica tion of the microphone. Two pipes of equal pitch—one in the mine and the other above ground—are and ft.. Bounded sim ultaneously, and the sound waves im pinge the microphones connected in series with a telephone. If both pipes are in pure air a clear note is heard in the telephone. If the pipes are in air of different density beats are heard these give warning of the presence of fire damp in the mine. Comfortless Furnishing. Rooms are furnished nowadays with a view to effect rather than to com fort. Furniture is charming, never has better taste been displayed, generally speaking, In furnishing, and yet It is rare, when one comes to think of it, that one goes into a really cosy "comfy" room, where the average wo man looks thoroughly at home, and one feels at once rested in mind and body. —London Ladies' Pictorial. new samples of Henry Bosch Co's are here and they are certainly marvels of beauty.
