SeL.. cOic TIDES THAT RAGCE Queer Pranks Played by the Ebb and Flow of the Ocean. THE RUSH INTO THE AMAZON. Three Successive Waves, Each Ten Feet High, Fling Themselves in a Roaring Mass Upon the Great River. The Tides at Panama. The highest ocean tide in the world is in the bay of Fundy, where it has been known to rise eighty odd feet. The second highest tide is found at the mouth of the English river the Severn. The top of the Severn tide is at Chepstow, and when there is a gale behind a spring tide a rise of nine teen feet seven inches has been ob served within a single hour. The re sult of this is a "bore," a tidal wave which sweeps up the wide channel at more than ten miles an hour and swallows the bare sands under a wild tumble of turbulent waves. The cause of the gigantic Severn tide is interesting. It is not entirely due to the rapid narrowing and shal lowing of the Bristol channel, but is chiefly caused by the fact that two tides enter the Severn simultaneously. The crest of the tide which runs into i the Irish channel meets at the mouth of the Bristol channel another wave. twelve hours older, which has come round the north of Ireland. These two together run up the Severn. A tide almost equal to that of the Severn is seen in the bay of Mount St. Michael, on the French coast. At low tide carts drive across from La Vendee to the 'Isle of Noirmoutlen; at high tide big ships sail across the road. In stories of adventure one some times reads of the tide racing in over the sands faster than a man can run. This actually happens in the bay of Mount St. Michael. At low tide there lies before one a wide plain of sand 150 square miles in extent, ihr the center of which rises the huge black mass of St. Michael's mount. The tide turns, and one sees it rushing in edged by a line of white. A liqui4 mass estimated at 1,470,000, 000,000 of cubic yards comes pouring into the bay and in a very few hours covers the whole great plain. The distance between ebb and flood marks In the bay is nearly seven miles. Centuries ago all this desolate gulf was a wide stretch of fertile land, pro teted ion the seaward side by tall sand hills. A great tide with a heavy gale behind it burst through the bar riers and stole 90,000 acres of farm and pasture. While the French side of the Eng lish channel is dilly visited by im mense tides, England's side has com paratively small ones, and from Poole harbor to the Ist of Wight the very peculiar phenomenoa of double tides Is seen. These are caused by the in terruptlon of the tidal wave by the Isle of Wight. All over the world we Ind the tides playing the queerest pranks. At the port of Panama, on the Pacie end of the Panama canal, you my watch a tide of twenty-three feet rise and fall. Lees than forty miles away, at the Atlantic end of the big cut, there Is practically no tide at all. We have spoken of the "bore" in the Severn. Imposing sight as this is, it is child's play compared with the tidal wave which rushes np the enormous estuary of the Amason. This rush of water, which, by the way, makes a .terrie roarrlg sound, cemes in three successive waves, each habout ten feet high, and vessels navrl aptlng the estuary are in Us great danger as when they are overtaken by storm in the open sea. The Ganges has a dangeraous "bore" at high springs, and the "mascaret" en the river Seine is also a source of peril to small craft. The force of the currents or races produced by tides penned in narrow chbtannels must be seen to be believed. iary eae has heard of the famous maelstrom off the Norwegian couast, the terrible whirlpool which was sup posed to drag down ships and grind them to pieces against the rocks at the bottom. The whirlpool as such does not exist, but the tide race between Moskol island and its next neighbor is almost as dangerous as the revolv lg eddy of the fable. The sea here rushes through a rock walled channel at more than ten miles an bour. A sailing vessel caught in this race is perfectly helpless, and a steamer must bave uncommonly good engines to drive her way through itL Between Jura and 8earbs islands, on the west coast of Scotland, Is a tidal ace which for speed and tfury holds a world's record.

A PENITENT A Burglar is Brought Back to the Fold on Christmas Mom. By EMMA EDMONDS Copyright, 1910. by American Press Association. Mike Conover, burglar, the day be fore Christmas stood on a sidewalk in a great city and watched the shoppers. On the other side of the street was a large jewelry store, in and out of which throngs of people were going and coming, many of them carrying the goods they had bought rather than risk not getting them before Christmas morning if left to be sent home by the delivery wagon. Mike was watching for some pros perous looking person to come out of the store, his pockets bulging with small packages-he knew the small ones to be the most valuable-intend ing to follow him home and during the night relieve him of them. i'resetly he hit upon an elderly gentlemnan with mutton chop whiskers and a gold head ed cane, who, as he emerged from the store, was crauninig the said small packages down into his pocket. Mike followed him, noted the house he en tered anti went away. The town clocks were striking one hour after midnight when the burglar bent his steps to the house in question, passed from the front steps on to a balcony, inserted a jimmy under a window sash. pulled out the screws that held the sash, raised it and en tered a large drawing room. Theb Christmas presents were doubtless kpt above, so, feeling his way up stairs, he found a hall lighted by a gas jet turned very low. lie turned It a trifle higher in order the better to see the way and, looking into an open doer, saw two little children asleep with their arms about each other. To the mantel hung two long stockings bulging in every part. On a bureau was a crucifix. Mike had been brought up a Catholic by an honest, hardworking mother and remembered when a lad quite well grown seeing his' little brother and sister, both less than five years old, lying in bed together in this fashion. He remembered it espec,lly because he had just come in with some toys to put into their stockings. The sight took him back to those days when he had not yet gone to the bad, and there came a sinking about his heart. lie passed back through a narrow hallway and, opening a door, entered a portion of the house that seemed to be an ad dition and cut off from the rest. The door had scarcely closed behind hint when he heard a low voice say: "Dominus vobiscum." Mike started, and his knees trembled beneath him. Whence came the voice--from the ceiling, from under the floor or from behind curtains? It had been years since Mike had gone to mass, much less to confession, and now it seemed-to him that he was in a church; that the priest had turned from the altar to the congregation and. spreading his arms In an attitude to bless them, had intoned the Latin words meaning "The Lord be with you." Instinctively Mike bowed his head and made the sign of the cross on his forehead. Then suddenly a woman's voice be gan to sing that beautiful hymn "Ave Sanctissimna" ("Hail, Most Holy Moth er"). From the moment Mike heard the first note he began to droop. Grad ually he bent almost to the floor, and when the words "Ora pro nobis" ("Pray for us") were sung he sank upon his knees. When the song stopped the penitent was sobbing like a child. Suddenly a light was turned on be hind him. But Mike remained on his knees. He was too overcome by the music to make any resistance. "What are you doing here?" asked the gentleman Mike had shadowed that day. "I came to rob you, sir," Mike re plied in a hoarse whisper, "but I have been turned from my purpose, first, by your two little children with their hanging stockings and, second, by what I have heard here. Am I dreaming that I am in a church? Is this a dwell aing, or have I gone mad?' . "Neither. We are Roman Catholics here, and I have parchased a phono graph as a Christmas present for my wife, who tIs a very devout woman. It is intended for such. I left it wound, and I suppose something has gone wrong with the machinery and started it up. I heard the singing and came In to shut the thing off." Then Mike rose from his knees, but with his bead still bowed said: "I am ready, sir, to go to Jail and suffer the punishment I deserve. But ever again will I commit a crime. The influnence of our holy church and my old mother when I was a boy has been brought back to me tohight to save me from sinking any lower. I am *armed, sir, and could kill you in a mo ment. But fear nothing. Go to your telephone, if you have one in the house, and call the polce." The gentleman stood looking at Mike for some momenta without speakllang. then said: al shall not telephone for the police. The police reptesent the law. Our church has done what the law can never do. The law can only punish: the church has brought a sinner to re pentance. (o your way, and tomor row, if you will call at my place of business, I will give you work." Mike is now earntng an honest liv Ing and hangs ttockings for his own children on Christmas eve. But he is never comfortable in presence of a phonograph. Somehow it connects him with a past that distresses him and Wbhich he wishaes to forget. A Weman's Trait. "I wish I'd been born a woman." "What for ?"

BREWSTER Copyright. 1910. by American Press Association I lived in a gold mining region where a great deal of assaying needed to be don't and, being a chemist, set up an establishment where 1 could do this and other work pertaining to mines. My place was a receptacle for gold dust, large quantities of which were left with me continually. Miss Rebecca Wright. my typewrit er, was a very circumslpect young lady. I attempted occasionally to joke with her, but met with no response. Ol one or two occasions 1 ventured to say something a bit tender to her, but met with no encouragement. But when a man's mind is set on producing re sults, especially with a woman, he will not let up until he has accomnplished them or is obliged to give it up. What I wished, all I wished at least, at first was to see .Miss Wright show a con sclousness of my admiration and some appreclation of the fact. But something happened which led me to forget 1Miss Wright and any one else except one unknown person. That person was getting away with gold dust In sufficient quantities to ruin me if the leakage continued. No great quantity was taken at one time. Indeed, what I missed at a weighing had but the value of a few dollars. But I missed these small amounts continually. I had nothing laid up, and the amounts I was losing made up an accumulating debt. 1 set a watch on every one connected with the establishment except Miss Wright. I did not propose to have any one spy upon a girl who had every evidence of rectitude. Then the stealing ceased for awhile. I began again to think of my stenogra pher and, yielding to pique, recom menced my efforts to break through that iciness which characterized all her actions toward me. She accepted my attentions, but passively. She even permitted me to retain her hand when I took it in mine on meeting her after a brief absence. Matters pro gressed between us until 1 came to driving her out occasionally. I was not especially in love with her, though I might have been had she received my attentions more warmly. It was with me rather a matter of curiosity, though since I lived a lonely life in a country where there was little of wo man's society I often thought of mar rying Miss Wright, if l4Juld gain her consent, for the sake of a home. Then suddenly the leakages in gold dust recommenced. I charged several persons in my employ with being the thief, hoping that some one of them would break down under the accusa tion and confess. Among others I ac cused the woman who kept my prem Ises in order. She turned on me like a fury: "If ye want to know where yer gold dust is goin' I'll toll ye. The young leddy you're drivin' out and sayin' sweet things to is rellevin' ye of It." I was too Indignant to ask her a sin gle question as to what ground she based her charges upon. Indeed, I feared Miss Wright might hear her, and to be charg&d with such a crime would break her heart. I therefore dismissed the allegation with contempt and from that time felt more tender than ever toward the injured girL Indeed. I was daily becoming more and more inclined to enter into a mat rimonial partnership with Miss Wright I grew more and more demonstrative, In many ways indicating my intention. Miss Wright's demeanor underwent no change. She would permit me to en circle her waist, to kiss her; but, as for responding, she made no response whatever. I confes that this excited my amour propre, though at times I felt' inclined to ceases my demonstra tions, feeling that I might as well caress a stone. One evening I was sitting on a sofa beeide Miss Wright, our heads very near together. I asked her-why she was so unresponsive She mid she didn't know; she had always been called undemonstrative. I wished to propose to her, but she was so cold that I couldn't bring myself to do so. Though my arm was about her waist and her head rested on my shoulder, still there was no love current running between us. That night on taklnlg of my cost I saw something glitter on its shoulder. I recogied particles of gold dust. It strak me at once that the partlees were where Miss Wright's head had been. Then a terrible thought came to me. Was the woman I was thinking of making my wife a thief? Was srhe carrying away the dust in her hair? I did not sleep much that night aad the next day went away for a brief season, employing a woman to spy om Miss Wright. When I returned my de tective reported that every might the girl washed her bair and poured of the water in the bowl, leaving a sediment, which she scraped together and put In a little box. Not for worlds would I expose me whom I had so nearly asked to be my wife. I went away again, leaving * note for her informing her of my dis covery and telling her not to let me finad her when I returned. I have tried In vain to make up my mind to propose to some other woman. My mind has been so warped with this one exberlene--the narrowness of my escape from marrying a thlef that I am forced to be unjust to the rest. Perhaps some day I shall really fahl in love, and that will end my asw piidoa. Brass Buttens. Bottons were first used in the six teenth century.

Helpful Hints. After eating an olive it is rather crude to take the seed between the thumb and finger and shoot it at the host. There are other ways of dispos ing of the seed. It may be unobtru slvely slipped Into the vest pocket or even swallowed in an emergency. If your sweetheart is jealous of your attentions to another girl an easy way to ameliorate her is to tell her how furious the other girl is because of your attentions to her. When giving an after the theater supper to a party of friends always tip the waiter unobtrusively. You may easily make such an effort to be un obtrusive that the change may be al lowed to fall on the floor. Never laugh boisterously when a funny story is told at the table. Smile politely and then say, "As I was sai ing"- This draws the attention of the company to you and immediately stamps you as one to whom all funny stories are ancient history.-Chicago Post. Couldn't Fool Rastus. Uncle Rastus always contributed to the coal fund of the church. Year after year he dug down in his jeans for his little donation until finally the edifice was remodeled and a new heating plant installed. At the usual time the person approached Rastus and again asked him to be a cheerful giver. "Not on yo' life!" returned Rastus with large emphasis.

On this pa:tlicullar o'ccasielon, however. muc·lt to his sorrow, the dea'oilc found hiemse-lf interested in the circus bills postetd up on the highway':L burns. lie reseented his interest. lIe tried to chase It away. lie wresthkl with it as be hutd c'mr. lie could have got the bet ter of it but for one thling. The conm ing circus had on exhibition au Afri can elephant weighing two tons. He had lost an eye and one tusk, he had killed tive keepers, and it was expect ed he would kill the sixth within a month. There was something in this statemnent to appleal and Interest. "What I want." lie said. "is to see that elephant. I want to look him over for ablout half an hour, and then I shall be willing to drive back home." "Brother Goodhue," replied the min ister, "as I understand it, there are two tents. ()te is for the menagerie and the ot her for the circus." "Yes, tha:t's so." "One ticket admits to both." "It ,t's.' "And Oh:' imenagerie is the first tent pI2 enlte-ir." "W'ell, 1the case seems to be right here. Ci':.,n c.,u enter the first tent and gaze en the elephant and not long to enter the second, where the circus is? It is surely no sin to gaze on an ele phant, but when it comes to a circus performance, deacon, that is different, you know. You must fight this out alone. You are a strong man, but the two ringed circus is an awful tempta tion." He had a week to think it over. Sometimes lhe was strong in his self confidence. and again his knees wab bled. Why pay A) cents to see the elephant alone when it would admit to all? Was it worth that sum to gaze on even an elephant that had killed five men? It was decision and indecl sion for a week, and then the minister htquired if his mind was made up. "Not skassly." was the reply. "You doubt your strength?" "That's it. I do want to see the ele phant, and I don't want to see them gals in spangles, and I'm sweating over it"'' "Then wouldn't it be wiser to give up the idea?" The deacon went home and wrestled another day and then decided not to go near the behemoth. The circus came, and his neighbors went, and a peddler came along the road and told him that it was the grandest aggrega tion on the face of the known world. and the words brought a lonely feel ing. The good man's reward was at hand. however. Just at sundown he heard a great yelling down the road, and he looked to see a great cloud of dust. A haystack on wheels was coming his way, pursued by men and dogs. The deacon was at the barnyard gate with a milk pall on his arm. What we advertise s s. A Good Argument!
