A thrilling account of how two sailors on the ill fated liner Ontario, burned near Montaub Point, N. Y., fought for five hours to escape being roasted to death or drowned after be ing left behind accidentally on the vessel was told by Joseph A. O'Brien, an insurance underwriter of Philadel phia. who assisted in their rescue. O'Brien reached the side of the burn ing steamer about forty-eight hours after she had been run aground neai Montauk Point with fire raging in hei hold. There was a heavy storm. "When we caught sight of the On tario she was a mass of flames froni one end to the other," he said. "The two men were discovered in a lifeboat near the stern of the vessel. When Tfe SO UNDER THE STEHN OP THE SHIP, the revenue cutter and the lighter took the captain and crew off the doomed ship the two men were down in her hold. When they came on deck it was to find that they bad been left behind. Shortly afterward the high wind caused the fire to break out again with renewed fury on the Ontario, and It soon became Impossible for them to remain on board longer. "They lowered one of the lifeboat#, but the sea was so rough as to make $1.97 All our 45 inch tiouncing, 95c values line sheer goods deep shiffly fSQi/ home work, go at D5fjt Corset Covers All our best bigh priced $1.00 and SI.25 values go at All our 65,75 and 85c corset covers go at...

A rope was fastened to a steel ladder suspended from the stern of the vessel and the other end to the lifeboat to keep it from being blown away. "This worked all right for a time, as the small boat lay under the shelter of the Ontario. But in a short while the steel sides of the vessel became so intensely hot that it blistered the faces of the men. They were then com pelled to exert their utmost strength to keep the boat away by pushing against the sides of the Ontario with their oars. "They did this until rescued by the revenue cutter Acushnet. but it was not a minute too soon. The men were so exhausted that it would have been impossible for them to have held out much longer."—New York Times. Charged by a Lioness. In "Trekking the Great Desert" Lieu tenant Arnold Hodson describes an ex perience which he coolly terms "inter esting as showing that sometimes lions do charge without being wounded:" "We presently left the mopane for est and came to a piece of turf with very long grass growing it. This piece of ground was fearfully holey, but put spurs into my pon.v and *an tered toward the place where the lion ess was growling. To my surprise 1 suddenly came on her in the long grass. She did not run away, but waited for me. and the merest neophyte could have seen that she meant business. I tried to pull up. but only managed to do so when 1 was about ten yards off. "I can't really say whether the lion ess charged first or whether I fired first. I only know that 1 fired and that she was then on top of me. She did not spring at first, but came flat along the ground and then rose up as quick as lightning. She put her left claw under the pony's neck and seized his right shoulder with it. With her right claw she tore a piece out of my legging and then caught the pony by the right shoulder while she mauled him on the same shoulder with her teeth. As quickly as possible I loaded again and shoved the barrel into her right shoul der with one hand and fired. She then fell off and rolled about six yards and lay quietly growling. I then dismount ed and gave her her quietus." Ship Nearly Hit by Meteorite. A narrow escape from being struck by a meteorite was experienced by the Iwyland line steamer Bostonian re cently. Captain Perry saw the me torite. flashing brilliantly, falling to the southwest of the vessel. There was a hissing sound as it approached, and with a loud report it fell into the ocean a few ship's lengths from the Bostonlan's bow. It caused so great a disturbance in the sea that water was dashed over the decks of the steamer. $10.00 All of our tine serge and silk dresses $8.50 to $12,00 this $7 75 sale cut to Misses and ladies dresses are about one half. reduced Boys' Suits New blue serge suits $6 00 0./S JB O to $6.50 values, cut to....

The pillory was done away with by jet of parliament in the year 1837, and it is amazing that it should have en dured until that date, for it was a mode of punishment which could be made so extremely barbarous as to be a crying scandal to any nation. This engine of torture seems to have been known before the conquest under the name of "stretch neck." which is pleas antly suggestive of its functions. Edward I enacted that all stretch necks should be made of a proper size so that the life of the occupant should not be endangered, and a print of the reign of Henry III. shows very clearly what the pillory was like in those days. The culprit was mounted upon a stool, at one side of which was fixed a pole, supporting a pair of boards hinged to gether and with holes cut in them large enough to admit the wrists and neck. The hands and arms were thus held on a level with the face, and the ap palling stiffness which this must have caused can well be imagined. Thus confined and powerless, the offender was placed in some pi:llic spot, where the riffraff employed themselves burl ing dirt, sticks and stones at him until they were tired or until the object of their sport succumbed, as not infre quently came to pass. It would seem that primarily the pil lory was intended for cheats of all kinds, such as mountebanks, fraudu lent dealers in horses, coal, corn, etc.. and we read in Fabian that the mayor of London in 1287 "did sharp correc tion upon bakers for making bread of light weight. He caused divers of them to be put in the pillory, as also one Agnes Daintie for selling of min gled butter." Soothsaying and other magic arts were also punished with the pillory. It would appear that famous men did not appear in the pillory until after 1637, when a star chamber decree for bade the printing of any book or pam phlet without permission from the archbishop of Canterbury, the bishop of London or the university authori ties and also made an order that any printer who did not conform to this and set up a printing press should not only be pilloried, but also whipped through the city of Lofidon. Stafford is told by Garrard the v.-ay in which three men underwent their pilloryings. "They stood two hours in the pillory. The place was full of peo ple, who cried and howled terribly, especially when Barton was cropped. Dr. Bastwick was very merry. Ills wife, Dr. Poe's daughter, got on a stool and kissed him."—London Globe. The exodus to the town robs the form of workers and fills city park benches with idlers.

The Koto and Samisen. Japanese girls of the upper and mid die classes learn to play the "koto." while those of the lower orders usually learn the "samisen." The "koto" is a narrow horizontal instrument about five feet long with a sounding board upon which are stretched strings sup ported by ivory bridges. It is played by means of ivory finger tips. The player sits before the instrument on the floor in the ordinary posture, and when she touches the strings she often sings a soft accompaniment. The "sam isen" is a kind of banjo and is often played during theatrical performances and recitations. It gives fprth dull and montonous tones. During the summer months mothers of young children should watch for any unnatural looseness of the bowels. When given prom attention al this time serio-'b trouble may be avoided.
