Cigars a foot and a btlf long, which arc made for one day's smoking, are shown In the American Museum of Natural History. With tlietu Is a hold er which looks like a tuning fork and Is large enough to be used for pitch lug hay. Far np the Rio Nigra, a tributary of the Amazon, two explorers made a col lection of articles for the museum. The Indians there made clgnrs eight een Inches long and as big around as a child's arm. One of these cigars Is too much for any ease loving man to clasp, so the Indians put the fragrant roll between the tines of a fork two and a half feet long, stick the sharp end of the handle into the ground at a convenient distance from their ham mocks and take a puff from time to time as they sway lazily backward and forward. . There are many other picturesque articles In the collection, which was made during a three months' journey from the coast The material is of the highest value, and nothing like it has been seen except a few articles In a German museum.

No matter how long or difficult of pronunciation may be the uanio of a steamer, the passenger agents and clerks of the. various steamship lines make an effort to be correct In using It when selling tickets to customers. Oc casionally they make a slip of the tongue and call the steamer by the nickname used In the office when pas sengers are not around. The steamers of the Atlantic Transport line, the Min neapolis, the Mlnnetonka and the Min nehaha, are referred to generally as the "Minnies." Individually the Mln netonka Is called the "Tonk" and the Mesaba the "Mes." The Ked line Va derland Is called "Father," the Finland the "Fin" and the Kroonland and the Zeeland the "Kroon" and the "Zee," re spectively. The prefix St is dropped when reference Is made to the 8t Panl; the St Louis Is called "Looie" and the Philadelphia Is called the "Phillie." The North German Lloyd liner Kaiser Wilhelm der Grosse In the parlance of the office force Is the "Big Bill" and the Kaiser Wilhelm II. is "Billy Two."-New York Tribune. The Best Security on Earth Is the Earth Itself. With your savings invested in land you have absolute control over it. You are independent of everyone. The profits to be had in orchards are far greater than the same amount of money can earn invested in any other line of business. And these profits are certain and sure every year, increasing as the orchard grows older. v N Railroads THE MUSSULMANS. They Are Not Easily Disturbed While Saying Their Prayers. When saying bis prayers the true Mussulman la not easily disturbed. Hans Doerlng, In his account of bis travels in Chinese Turkestan, writes: "It Is an Interesting sight to see a Mussulman perform his devotions. Through the piece of glass In my pa per window I saw the Interpreter spread bis carpet In front of bis bouse Just opposite the one in which I was living. His wife and child sat quite close to him talking loudly with some visitors, but this did not in the least disturb1 the old man at his devotions. "In spite of the noise the melodious chanting of the Koran was quite au dible. The worshiper kotowed several times and cried 'Allah. Allah. Allah r then for awhile stood reverentially clasping bis hands crosswise upon bis breast after which he Joined In the conversation. "His wife then went through the same performance, doing exactly the same as her husband. This they do every morning and evening whether there are friends with them or not" In railroad facilities Hanford will excel any fruit district in America. It will have connection with four trans-continental railroads The Great Northern and Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul on the north; the Northern Pacific and North Coast on the south. One electric railroad surveyed on the west bank and one on' the east bank of the Columbia while daily boats now ply the river between Han-, ford and Pasco. Water Supply The water for irrigation at Hanford will be steady, abundant and cheap. We have the whole Columbia river, one of the largest in the United States, for our supply. Water will be delivered to the fruit growers at a cost not exceeding 51.50 per acre each year, in quantities guaranteed to be sufficient to seccessfully irrigate their land. Sweeps the Early Market Owing to its favorable location and its mild climate, the fruit at Hanford ripensfrom three to five weeks earlier than the fruit in any other district in the northwest, This is a great feature. It means that the Hanford fruit reaches the market first in the early spring, when people are eager to gratify their desire for fruit and willing to pay high prices to do so. This desire to taste the tirst lu scious fruit is worth thousands of dollars to the growers at Hanford, for they are the first to receive its benefits. For Further Information See Mr. J. W. Fox, special representative, room 21, St. George Hotel who will leave Monday, May 11, at 4:30 p. m. with a large crowd of Hanford enthusiasts who are contemplating buying, or address Spencer, Fox Gregory WALLA WALLA, WASH. Blindness of Conceit. "Ever notice the density of a con ceited person?" asked a business man. 'To me that's the most striking thing about such on Individual. Maybe he has some qualities that Justify his good opinion of himself, and maybe not. He's dense Just the same, and the proof of It Is that he doesn't realize how he Impresses his associates un pleasantly. If the average conceited man bad the least Idea of the handi cap under which he Is laboring tre'd shed It mighty quick. But he hasn't and It's impossible to drill It Into him. He's the modern human ostrich, with his head stuck Into the sand, so far us any recognition of his disagreeable trait Is concerned."-New York Press. Half Understood.

Wife ami Children May Iluve Drmvnwl. That E. E. Porter and his entire family, consisting of Mrs. Porter. 6- year-old son and a bubo of two months, have been drowned in the Wllamette or Columbia rlvt-rs Is fear ed by a brother of the missing man. Kmbarklnir in a steam luunch. Porter nrcnmnanled bv his wife and children left Portland for the lower Colum bia river about six weeks ago to look at n.nmall sawmill plant he contem plated buying. Not a member of the family has been eeen by any of their relatives since, although on leaving Porter did not expect to be absent long. No tid ings of any sort have been received from them. Every Inquiry of the brother has given no clew as to their fate or whereabouts. A small boat answering the de scription of the K. E. Porter, the iiiime of the craft In which they took parage, was reported this morning as bottom-up near Astoria. An et fort is being made to Identify the derelict and If she proves to be the one In which the family set out from Portland, there will be little hope re maining of their ever showing up again alive. In his launch Porter was a fa miliar figure around the harbor. Dur ing the freshets In the Willamette, he made it a business of picking up hard wood logs which came floating down Btream. These were usually maple and oak. Wishing to branch out In his busi ness operations, and hearing of a small mill down the river which had been reported to him that he could use to advantage, he decided to take a look at it, Thinking It would be a fine outing for his wife and children, he concluded to take them with him. During their absence there have been several bad blows on the river, but his craft was staunch and could probably ride out the waves on most Inland waters. If she was wrecked and went down, It Is probable that she was In a collision with some large steamer at night and no one but the occupants of the little boat knew any thing about the accident.
