In regard to danger to employes, the commission says explosions are practically impos sible with the new material. Ilia Account Hook. A firm of masons in an Irish town employ a hodcarrier whose novel meth od of keeping account of his time was brought to light lately by a queer cir cumstance. He went one evening to his employer's home with the sad intel ligence that he had lost his account book. He said that the pigs had un lortunately got it and eaten it up. . "What .sort of an account book did you keep?" asked his employer. "Why. I had an empty barrel and when I worked a whole day I put in a potato and when half a day half a pota to, and the pigs ate them all entirely." Pearson's Weekly. A Font Ofllce It ill in tc.

It has seen a new series of postage stamps and three designs for the two-cent stamp; the design with the profile of Houdon's bust of Washington, which had been in use for 32 years; the nearly full face of the Stuart portrait of Washington, draped with the flag, which has just been abandoned because the engraving was not satisfactory; and, as its succes sor, a larger head, in the Stuart pose, framed by a shield. It is not often that collectors can get three patterns of a stamp of the same denomination issued within 12 months. Yet coin-collectors will recall that three different kinds of five-cent pieces hear the date of 1S83. Generous. Hut There was a worthy Irish member of parliament who was so generous that a request for financial assistance was never refused. But his checks had one little drawback they were never hon ored. The shortcoming naturally in time became known, but it did not affect his popularity. A visitor to the dis trict, hearing of the member's peculiar ity, asked a leading politician how it was that public faith in the member was not shaken. "Why. sure, it is because he shows his willingness to assist, but for lack of funds." was the reply. The Chrysanthemum. Cultivation of the chrysanthemum in China may be traced back to a very early date. Already in the eleventh century two strains were cultivated, the one bearing yellow ray tiowers and the other white. Dr. Henry, who has col lected specimens now in the hM barium at Kew, England, believes that two wild plants are the progenitors of all the cultivated strains. The yellow llower is found throughout China and Japan. The white flower comes originally from Unpen. China. Desiiernte Villain. t "Alas! all is lost," he moaned as he left the home of his adored.

An English lady traveling with her husband in Somaliland tells the follow ing story of a thunder shower and the visitors it brought: "Oscar Grat and his men had come to the zeriba to pay an afternoon call, and having on their best togas, did not care to gel wet, so came and sat under the lly of our tent. They each brought, n handful of spears and shields, and huddled together in the cramped space, alternately prodded each other or put a spearhead through the canvas roof. The storm lasted nearly an hour, and when the first gleam of light appeared all ran with wild shouts to the dusty track whence we had come, but which was now a rushing river. All the casks and skins were filled, to the accompaniment of weird songs, and then the ponies, sheep and camels these last had had no water for seven days were brought down io drink." Armor Worn Nowadays. Some officers of the British army now wear armour. As a general rule the mail is inclosed in a leather casing which is sewn inside the tunic so as to be invisible unless the garment is picked to pieces. And the same with helmets a similar device is fixed as lining, so as to give additional protection in case of need. Some officers are not above wearing mail vests underneath their tunics and perfectly obvious to their comrades, who. although they may scoff in time of peace, would be only too glad to don one themselves when in ihe middle of hostilities. The majority of the makers customers are officers, be cause the suits are naturally very ex pensive. Vertliet for Spoiled DreM. Mrs. Clara Bock, of Now York city, has obtained a verdict of $10U damages for injury done to a dress through the carelessness of a waiter in a small res taurant. She and her husband were dining at Sherry's anil the waiter dropped a glass of watrr on the white crepe de chine princess gown. The manager made profuse apologies and so did the waiter, but Mrs. Hock refused to be mollified by fine words. Next day sh? sent the dress to the hotel people, with a demand for its valur-. This was refused, so .4he sued and got a ver dict, as stated above. llnrtly HiKnlitnilerif. When the Fraser Highlanders landed m North America in 1757 it was pro posed to change the dress n account of the eold winters and hot summers. The officers successfully opposed this, and were ultimately justified by the High landers being the healthiest soldiers iu the army. In the campaign in Holland in 17I4 some regim nts lost as many as :'.00 irom disease, but the Black Watch, which had :YM) recruits in its ranks, had only 'it casualties, including the killed in battle. Aiiiiimltt Fear Slmnna olee. Cordon Gumming was perhaps the first to discover the effect of the human voice upon wild animals. On one oc casion he hail a lioness, in full re-treat, before him. He called loudly to her. whereupon she squatted like a huge dog and permitted him to approach. In a similar venture hf checked the charge of a lioness by yelling at her and con tinued lo do so. white she lemained per plexedly smiling the greninil and al lowed him to escape. rensux ltktijirFe.
