BROUGHT BACK THE 0-P DAYS Middle Aged Man Reverts to Mem ories of Youth. I "I was idly glancing though a cyclopedia the other day," s3d a man who used to study geograpl in a lit tle red schoolhouse in the aiddle of the 70s, "when I came acr '.s a map of Central America, whert1 the san guinary half-breeds are fitting just now, and lo and behold the'i was the gulf of Campeachy, which', I hadn't thought of for 25 yeara I .On't know anything about the gulf of Campeachy, but the name took me bach quick as a flash, to an old green dqk with a black top that lifted, and i unpaint ed interior that had a cell, musty, old-fashioned smell. I'd gire ?10 for that desk to-day. J "And along with the guf of Cam peachy there came Into mymind some of the old-time favorites the strait of Bab-el-Mandeb, cape Malabar, Pun to Arenas, the gulf of Carpentaria, Papua or New Guinea, Terra del Fuego and Beluchistan. I declare it makes me almost sick to be a boy and go to school cti.d study Mitchell's geography again." Life in Argentina. -At the National is W. 3. Blackburn, of New York, a capitalist, who re cently returned from a business trip to Argentina. "Because Argentina occupies about the same relative position south of the equator that the United States occupies north of the equator, Buenos Ayres has the same climate as Charleston. S. C, said Mr. Blackburn. "During four months out of the year the million inhabitants of the city amuse themselves at the races. They do not have so good a breed of horses there, but the sport is just as good and is well patronized. Some of the Spanish women I saw there were as beautifully gowned as any women I have ever seen. The national sport is cricket, which has been taught the people of Argentina by the English. They play it a jrxeat deal. The hours of work are about the same as ours. The food Is very sood. The meat is the best in the world." Washington Post. Had Servants Guessing. A London lady who had been holiday-making, wrote to a servant that she would be home next evening at 6:30 (D. V.), and asking that dinner be ready. Arriving home, she found no dinner. The cook appeared with apologies. "Would you mind telling me, ma'am, what 'D. V.' means?" she said. "I couldn't make it out, but Sarah (the housemaid) said it must mean 'Due at Victoria.' So we al lowed you an hour to get home from the station." Mrs. Blank gave her husband four letters to mail for her the other day. She Is not without knowledge of the usual way of a man with a letter, but like every dutiful wife, she thinks her better half is a little different from everyone's else, and that all rules fail in his case, so she gave him these epistles without a doubt that they would ultimately reach their destina tion. Four days later Mrs. Blank came to Mr. Blank in the most dreadful agita tion. "Isn't it perfectly awful?" she said. "I wrote inviting Sadie to come to us for next Saturday and Sunday and here this very morning in my mail there's a letter from Alice saying that she is coming, that she feels she knows me so well she doesn't have to wait for an invitation, and, besides she will be in this neighborhood, and she cannot go home without seeing us." "Well?" queried Mr. Blank, pa tiently. "Well, if it Is well Alice and Sadie do not speak to each other, and it would be perfectly impossible to have them here at the same time. You know how they quarreled about Mc Henry, and, while I've never heard the details of the affair, I'm quite sure they were each wrong but they loathe and despise each other, just like they were in a vendetta, or one of those unpleasant Italian Blpck Hand things." "What I admire about you," said Mr. Blank, slowly, "is the absolute temperateness of your language. So they loathe and despise each other, do they? What's the matter writing to Sadie and asking her to defer her visit for another week?" "For Alice," asked Mrs. Blank, "never. She would be hurt to death, and quite right, too. Whatever shall I do?" Mrs. Blank leaned her forehead on her hand in despair and Mr. Blank watched her in an amused silence. Suddenly he had a thought. "Stay," he said softly to himself, and began to search his pockets. Mrs. Blank looked up wide-eyed. From the inside pocket of his coat presently Mr. Blank brought forth a number of letters, more than a wom an would have thought one small pocket would hold. He sorted these slowly, while his wife quivered with impatience, and finally he selected one from the bunch and held it out be tween his thumb and finger. "Is this the epistle you wrote Sadie?" he asked. "John!" cried Mrs. Blank, falling on his neck. "You didn't mall It, did you?" "I forgot all about it," returned Mr. Blank. "What a blessed angel you are, dear est, always doing the right thing at the right moment! You will never know what a load you have taken from my mind. Now Alice can come this week, and Sadie can come next, and all will be well. I do think you're sweet." Mr. Blank smiled a self-congratulatory smile, and seemed to grow in stature. Ten minutes later Mrs. Blank had a thought. "John Blank," she said, "let me see the rest of the letters in that pocket." Mr. Blank complied slowly,, and he looked nervous as his wife sorted ' f'm on her own account. There was ominous silence for several min utes, and then the woman in the case broke forth: "One here for moth er that should have been mailed a week ago; one for my dressmaker, very important, and explains probably why I did not get my gown Saturday; one ordering the new matting John, I'll never trust you with another let ter as long as I live; I think you are the meanest thing!" "Which." said Mr. Blank later to himself, "mixes a man in his mind considerably." Largest Chain Cables. What are said to be the largest chain cables ever made for ship's use have been turned out in South Wales. The iron bar used in mak ing the links is three and three quarters inches in diameter at the smallest part. Each link is about '22Yi inches long and weighs about 1G0 pounds. When tested for strength the breaking stress of 265.7 tons required by law, instead of fracturing these gigantic links, simply elongated them about one inch. With the highest stress that the testing machine could give, about 370 tons, the links showed no signs of cracks or fracture. Ex port Implement Age. VNhf Hie BEER ijou Like No other beer like this.
