SSljillE NATURAL QUERY. Miss ikuffitt had recently joined the Band of Sisters for Befriending Burg lars, and was being shown over a prison for the first time. One prisoner, evidently a man of ed ucation, interested her more than the others. He rose and bowed to her when she entered his cell, apologizing for the poorness of his apartment. Miss Muffitt could not help wonder ing how this refined man came within the clutches of the law. In fact, as she was leaving the cell, she said: “May I ask why you are in this dis tressing place?” “Madam,” he replied, “I am here for robbery at a seaside hotel.’’ “How vqry interesting!” said Miss Muffitt. “Were you—er —the proprie tor?” —London Answers.

Is Today the Same Paradise Which ~ Cook Found It, When a Century and a Half Ago He Put Into Pao-Pao to Water Ships. New York. —To the average traveler Tahiti remains the ile inconnu. The tourist is not expected there; he is regarded with suspicion. He demands a bath-tub —article undreamed ot in the island philosophy—he demandß a reasonable degree ol promptness in the every-day affairs of life, he makes' other and extraordinary demands. When he realizes that nothing what ever has been done for his amusement or edification, that to the islanders the outer world from which he comes ex ists only in the imagination; when he realizes these things—as soon he does —it is then that he learns to content himself with things as they are, and to admire the beauties of the place as nature made —and has left —them. There are no towns upon Moorea. White men are a rarity. It is today the island paradise which Cook found it when, a century and a half ago, he put into Pao-Pao to water his ships. Today, also, the native lives the life he did then —the native —ignorant, un civilized, if you please, but with a voice and manners, a gift of hospital ity; which put the white man to shame. Here, more than elsewhere, he seems himself a part of that haunt ing beauty which surrounds him on every hand. Here, when the day is done, under the cocoanuts and the bananas, “be twixt the sun and moon upon the shore,” the traveler —if he is fortunate enough to have the entree —sits him down, as honored guest, among the retainers of the native chief. Mounted upon a native pony, and in the cool of the morning, he has coursed the wild pig in the shadows of the great crater , ;<•: w fys •. w' / ,/ "'•W : y Summer Visitors to Tahiti. valley. The afternoon has found him ava-fishing in the inland lake. Now the shadows are falling, the magical afternoon mists are over the peaks which climb steeply upward before him, and the short twilight is at hand. Presently, the tropic moon will rise to take its course directly overhead, making the weird vistas about him light as day again. He hears the voices about him, prattling in the me lodious Maori tongue, and, afar off, the thunder of the surf upon the dis tant reefs. He closes his eyes and dreams of a tomorrow like today, and then of still other tomorrows. He has eaten the fei —the island Lotus —and, if he dreams of home, it is as some place which —perhaps —will know him no more. WAS IN NEED OF A SHAVE Youth Disguised as Girl Collects $43 From “Loving” Men; Stubble Discloses Identity. Coapke, N. Y. —By far the most com manding feature of the fair conducted by the Ladies’ Aid Society of the First Baptist, church of this village, was a large square tent at one end of the hall on which this sign was displayed: MISS EMILY LAWSON WILL SELL KISSES PRICE 25C EACH. The fair endured for two evenings, ending. The kissing tent did more business than all the other depart ments combined, for the managers tooh in $43 and might have gathered more, but for an unfortunate incident. One young man, after paying a dol lar on the second evening for four osculations, came back from the open ing where the pretty face was dis played and whispered to a friend: “Joe, there’s only one trouble with that girl’s kisses. She needs a shave.” Following came a raid on the tent', when it was found that “Miss Emily Lawson” was Peter F. Broderick, a good-looking young man, who dis guised himself as a girl. Pressed for time, he had failed to use his safety razor and the fraud was discovered through the stubble on his lips. But the Ladies’ Aid Society repudiate him; they had no part in the plot.

Mrs. Van Alen Thompson, whose entry into the country gave her much difficulty with the customs officials, was recounting her experiences to a few friend in Boston. She said; “It was very unpleasant, but not the least unpleasant part was the attitude of the customs officials. I hope they don’t intend to be as rude as they ap pear to the returned traveler. “But,” continued Mrs. Thompson, philosophically, “I suppose it would he difficult to be popular as a customs inspector. Everybody dislikes these poor men. Everybody feels towards them like the old skipper. “This skipper, after undergoing sev eral hours of suspicious cross-ques tioning from two inspectors regarding his cargo, was at last leaving the wharf, when a young official, unaware of his previous grilling, accosted him. “ ‘Have you anything to declare, sir?’ he demanded sharply. “Furious, the old skipper glared at the young man and shouted: “ ‘Yes, young man.

Last winter one of the strong churches of Los Angeles extended Rev. W. H. Sheffer of Memphis, Tenn., a call to become their pastor, and after considering all sides of the question he decided to accept the call, relates the Christian Herald. So he con vened his official board, placed before them his resignation and asked to be released. His hoard being made up of tactful business men, and know ing that their pastor had tried for years to build a new church, request ed him to hold the resignation in abeyance for a week, which he did. Then the hoard got busy, bought a new site for a church and paid $27,000 for it and reported to the church the following Sunday that they would build a new church on it at once if their pastor would consent to remain with them. He wanted another week, and then said to his church: ”1 will stay with you if you will subscribe $45,000 for the new church at once.” They took him at his word, and at that service subscribed $54,000 for the new building. It goes without say ing that his church is very happy over his decision to stay with them. Now They Don’t Speak.
