AFETY apd Profit are the two important things
Qj to consider in selecting a bank. Money is such
a hard thing to keep,.that it's folly to place? it where it
will not be absolutely safe. At the same time, the
man or Woman who1 is saving money naturally wishes
it to earn more money, and therefore the monetary
institution which' combines safety and profit is always
a desirable depository.

FIGHT WITH CHINESE PIRATES.
Bloodthirsty Sea Rovers to Be Found
in Eastern Waters.
We had been in the fog but two or
three hours when a large junk sudden
ly loomed up on our port bow. Our
captain, who was an old East India
and,Chlna trader, took one look at her
and said: "My God! Here's an in
fernal Chinese pirate junk! .Make all
We did not need that order. Almost
as .soon as I can tell it we had the
saits up and drawing, but not quick istence. Barkeepers
enough to escape the junk, which bore
down under full head, her decks
crowded with m^n, her grappling
irons on a long pole, ready to hook
into our chains. The Oneco, being
built for the China trade, was armed.
We carried four guns in each broad
side and two swivels on the taffrail,
with an ample supi»ly of boarding
pikes, muskets, pistols and cutlasses.
If the pirate succeeded in boarding us
it would mean a hand-to-hand fight,
and what with making sail and getting
ready for battle, we had not fired a
gun before grappling irons were in our
chains. ,But at this moment we let go
a broadside cf our four port guns,
which must have disabled the men in
charge of the grappling line, for they
did not .succeed in making it fast
around their bits until they had drift
ed about 200 feet astern. We at
tempted to cut this line, but the hook
was attached first by a long chain
which we could not sever and the
angle was such that we could not hit
it with a shot.
LONELY LIFE IN DESERT.
Monotony Endured by Railroad Men
on Soudan Line.
Some of the western railroads have
stations lonesome enough to drive the
keepers to melancholia, but these lit
tle shacks, where the only company is
an occasional visit by a freight crew
a^d the chat with the operators up
and down 'the line, become thriving
cities .in comparison with some of the
stations on the Soudan' railway in
Situated in the middle ol' the Nubian
desert, the stations consist of one or
two houses built of mud, a well and
perhaps a stable for a camel or two.
Instead of the rush of transconti
nental traffic there is only tV,? stillness
of .the desert and tSie appearance of a
train twice a week. Letters are infre
quent and even chat along the tele
graph wires languishes because there
is absolutely nothing to talk about.
The intense heat is aggravated by
the glare of the sun on the white
sands, and at least two station keep
ers are detailed, to every stop in order
that they may keep one another com
pany. The stations are more properly
watchmen's huts, since the principal
duty of the station master is to see
that .the robber bands do not steal the
track in between trains.—Ohio State

BARROOMS IN THE BIG HOTELS
Are Being Driven From the Field by
the Boudoir Buffet.
The magnificent hotel barrooms,
which were a feature of Broaoway life
a decade ago, are being driven from
the field by the boudoir buffet. Old
time hotels like the St. Nicholas, the
New York, the Metropolitan, the Mor
ton house, Union Square, v*eman
and others that made New *'ori bar
rooms something to talk a'.ic:: a feiv
jsars ago almost have gone om of ex-
in'! p'!\ors of
special drinks that mido then famous
either have gone to another rphrre or
into other br^'ness, and there arc
none to take t'ocir p.laccs. To cite the
most conspicuous exafnple the famous
elliptical bar in the Hoffman house,
which Edward P. Stokes made the
talk of two continents, has been taken
away. The collection of expensive
paintings, so famous that a special
view hour each morning was appoint
ed for women, has been dispersed.
What was once the most magnificent
barroom In the world in now a very
commonplace cafe in comparison with
the more modern New York hotels.
There is a small barroom in another
part of the hotel which bears about
the same relation to the sumptuous
Stokes menage as a pushcart does
to a pony carriage. This Is true of all
the big hotels. The waiter and small
table have. put the barkeeper out of
business. In many of the new boudoir
bars If a customer steps up to the
small bar and orders a orinlc he is
asked to take a seat at cne of the ta
bles and a wditer will carry the drink
to him. This usually involves a tip to
the waiter that approximates ore-half
the price of the drink. The old-time
barkeeper complains bitterly at the in
novation of the foreign waiter in the
barroom or cafe.
At the recent unveiling in Ocean
Grove of the bronze statue of the
late Dr. E. H. Stokes, a Methodist
"I knew Mr. Stokes well, and one
of the things I most admired in him
was .his simplicity, his modesty, his
plainness. He hated affectation and
vanity, even in women and in a good
humored way he would often poke fun
at the freakish fashions that come up
from time to time in women's dress.
"I remember one summer when the
ladies' hats were very large and a
great many cherries and beans and
grapes and so on covered them. Dr.
Stokes went about Ocean Grove tell
inga hat story.
"He said there came a knock at a
man's door one morning, and the man
answered it, and then called upstairs
to his wife:
'Aim, here Is the girl with the
"But the wife, coming downstairs
hastily, called as she descended:
'Don't be silly. It's my new hat.'"
