In tbe market place the Seller of Biead sits on his heels, with his wares in a large, flat basket before him. “Ho!” he cries. . ‘‘Come and buy; come, buy the Bread of Life, without money and without price!” He slaps the flat, round cakes with resounding thwacks to emphasize their size an<J solidity. Should you try to take him at his word, however, he will assure you, with profound salaams, "All that I have is yours, my lord, but I have many children, and If I bring not home the price of the kouskous (the favorite native dish), my mother-ln-lgw will smite me on the cheek with her shoe.” An Oriental will never speak of his wife to strangers. Tbe Way to Take Life. I smile at stupid men who cry That life 1h out of gear. Who go about with frowa and algh And faces full of fpar; For I’ve had sorrows of my own As dread uh any ever known; But when I feel Inclined to groan— Why then I fly to dreamland. Where happy visions throngs Where souls are bright and hearts are light. And life is like a song. i I only strive to glean the sweet. Forgetful of the cares— As farmers harvest but the wheat. And thrust aside the tares. And dark or-sunny be the day, 1 store for memory something, gay. And when grief comes across my way— Why then I'm off to dreamland. Where happy visions throng. Where souls are bright and hearts are light. And life Is like a song. —Boston Transcript Latest System of Mining. -.

Trying to Aocount For It. It is stated that there are more suicides Monday than any other day, but no attempt Is made to give a rea son for this fact. Somebody points out that Monday Is usually wash day. and It should be added that a boiled dinner usually goes with It. The clothes line may, perhapy, suggest the fatal rope, an’d'the clothes pin nasal asphyxiation. There are blue Mon days, too, and It may be possible that tfie suicides have their own peculiar ideas about starting the week rlfc-ut.— Cleveland Plain Dealer. AN EXPEEIMENT WITH CROWS. Efforts to Ascertain Wanderings of u These Birds. At Ito..sitten. in Eastern Prussia, tf*tie numbers of crows and rooks ‘an; 1 caught In nets every year during the 'two migration seasons, says Nature. The director of the station of tbe Ger man Ornithological Society at Rdssit ten proposes to try a curious experi ment with these birds. Small metal rings bearing a number ami date will be attached tif one foot of each of them, after which they will be liber ated aud permitted to proceed upon tl.eir own paths of migration. Notices have beeu sent all over Germany re questing that when any of these birds are shot the foot and the ring at tached to it may be returned to the di rector of the Vogelwarte at Rossitten. It is quite possible that some of them may stray even as far as the shores of Great Britain, and if this should hap*T pen it is hoped that the director’s re- 1 quest may be attended to. An accurate record will be kept at Rossitten of the dates of the liberation of every bird and of tiu* locality whence its f6ot is returned, and it is expected that some interesting deductions will be made from the information thus obtained. HE BELIEVED IN CALOMEL Patient Might Die, But the Doctor Would Be Obeyed. Down in the British West Indies there are many old-fashioned eccen tric doctors of the ancient "calomel ard quinine school,'' who believe that those medicines will cure every com plaint under the sun. One of theso doctors was brought to the bedside of a planter who was suffering from [ yellow fever. “Oh, doctor. I shall die. I shall die!” wailed the patient. i "Die and be damned to ye!” re torted the doctor. "But you Bhall take sixty grains of calomel first!” 1 The patient was so shocked that he took a turn for the better and re covered. j Sonnet on the Irish Setter. ~cout of the moors und fluids, of Iri«h fame.

Corrosion by Sea Water. The corrosion of metals by sea water has been Investigated by a Ger man engineer named Diegel. Alloys of copper and nickel are not very readily corroded and are rendered more immune by adjacent masses ol copper alloys, iron or copper, these protectors being then more rapidly corroded. Copper-zinc alloys are cor roded either by a uniform solution ol the alloy from the surface or when the zinc exceeds 24 per cent by a leaching out or the latter, but by the addition of 15 per cent nickel thli action is prevented.
