FATE OF THE RESOLUTE.
British Economy and tho End of
Franklin' Exploring 8hlp.
Tbe story of bow the brave little ex
ploring ship the Renolute was found by
n America a vessel la Darts strait aft
er a thousand mile cruise from Mel
ville Inland without a soul on board Is
canity tbe most captivating in tbe bis
tory of arctic exploration. Tbe Reso
lute, locked In tbe Ice, was abandoned
on May 15, 1854. sorely against the will
of ber captain by advice of tbe leader
of tbe Belcher-Franklin expedition.
Tbe reappearance of tbe vesaol on
Sept 17 canned great sensation, and
tbe United Suites brought the vessel
with great ceremony to Cowes in order
to present it to tbe queen of England.
. The queen, the prince consort and
otbqrs of the royal family tben at Os
borne House inspected tbe vessel,
which bad been carefully repaired and
all the original furniture retained In
position down to tbe smallest trinkets.
The American skipper traced before
ber majesty the thousand mile course
of the vessel and expressed his belief
that Sir John Franklin was still alive,
living among tbe Eskimos.
After many banquets tbe actual
transfer of the vessel took place on
Dec. 80, 185C, when tbe American flag
was replaced by the British. And now
comes the tragedy. Tbe admiralty had
no sooner come Into the possession of
the vessel than it proceeded to break
it up on the good old principle of pub
lic economy I London Chronicle,
A TRAP FOR MARINERS.
Salmadlna Bank, Off Colombia's Coast,
Is a Perilous Shoal.
One of the most dangerous places for
navigation is tbe Salmadlna bank,
which lies Just outside the harbor of
Cartagena, Colombia. Many vessels
bare come to grief on tbe treacherous
sands of Balmadlna in the past, and
because of tbe Impossibility of keeping
buoys on it the shoal is a constant
menace to ships plying those waters.
This dangerous bank is about four
miles long and two miles wide. There
is scarcely more than twelve feet of
water over it at any time. The sea
is usually smooth in that part of the
Caribbean, and unless there is ground
swell enough to cause waves to break
on the reef there Is nothing to warn
tbe navigator that be Is approaching
this shallow spot Be may bare his
lead gotng and get plenty of water
one minute and be bang up on the
shoal tbe next.
Tbe llghthoase people will probably
never be able to put buoys on Salma
dlna that will stay there. They are In
variably carried away in tbe terrific
hurricanes that periodically sweep
these waters. So It seems as if Salma
dlna was a bsd spot put there for the
perms nent worrlment of shipmasters.

Penalties For Sabbath Breaking.
Sabbath breaking In Dundee was an
expensive business in former times, to
Judge by the table of fines, etc., drawn
up by the local Guild of Bonnetmakers
In 1UG5. For traveling or drinking In
a tavern on Sunday the fine was fixed
t 40 shillings for each offense. For
"hanging oat bonnets, clothing or fish
to dry penalty for bonnets, Gs. 8d.:
for clothes, 4 shillings; for flab. 8 shil
lings. Carrying water from the well
or washing meat thereat in time of
sermon, penalty, 8 shillings; gathering
kail In time of sermon, penalty, 5 shil
lings; going to neighbors' bouses in
time of sermon without lawful excuse,
such as sickness, penalty for first
fault, 12 shillings, and ' for second
twice as much, with rebuke before the
craft, and for the third, summons be

icle. China's Millions.
Any figures for the population of
China must necessarily be more or lews
unreliable, inasmuch as the census man
is not much In evidence In tbe land of
the Celestials. Tbe estimate, which Is
probably somewhere near correct. Is
402,700,000. As to whether the mil
lions of China will ever become thor
oughly modernised In the sense that
the Japanese are remains to be seen.
The Chinaman possesses plenty of
good sense and there seems to be no
valid reason why he should not some
time "catch on" to things and forge
ahead with the rest of the folks. New

egraph. Persia's Sorrowful Tree.
There Is a tree In Persia to which
the name "the sorrowful tree" Is giren,
perhaps because It blossoms only In
tbe evening. When the first star ap
pears In tbe heavens the first bud of
the sorrowful tree opens and as the
shades of night advance and tbe stirs
thickly stud tbe sky the buds continue
gradually opening until the whole tree
looks like one Immense white flower.
On tbe approach of dawn, when tbe
brilliancy of the stars gradually fades
In the light of day, the sorrowful tree
closes Its flowers and ere the sun Is
fully risen not a single blossom Is vis
ible. A sheet of flower dust as white
as snow covers tbe ground around the
foot of tbe tree, which seems blighted
and withered during tbe day, while,
however, it is actively preparing for
tbe next nocturnal festival. The fra
grance of the blossoms la like that of
the evening primrose.
A clergyman took down a email vol
ume. "This Is called." he said, "the In
structions of rtah-ho-Tep.' It Is one
of tbe very oldest papyrus writings
known. It gives, among other things,
advice to husbands, and that advice Is
as good today as It ever was. Listen.''
And he read:
" 'If thou be wise furnish thy house
" 'Woo thy wife ever and never quar
rel with bar. - . j
" 'Nourish her daintily. '
" 'Deck ber out for fine dress la ber
" 'Feed ber upon sweets.
" 'Perfume her.
" 'Make her glad with praise.
"'Adorn her with Jewels, feather)
and the skins of beasts as sumptuously
as thy purse will suffer.' "
Exploiting the Antique.
A gang of swindlers in Toulouse had
for stock In trade a beautiful antique
cabinet and a considerable stock of au
dacity. With these they took for a
short lease a historic chateau near
Toulouse, installing a venerable old
lady to play the part of owner. Tben
they found a collector of antiques, per
suaded him to tislt the chateau and
sold him tbe really valuable cabinet at
a good round price. After the bargain
was concluded they Invited tbe victim
to lunch, and while he was eating tbe
meal the real cabinet wns replaced by
a perfect Imitation, which the victim
carried off with him. Tbe swindlers
before their arrest succeeded In selling
their cabinet thirty-three times at
prices varying from 500 to $3,000.
It is a popular fallacy that fonntaln
pens are quite a modern invention. As
a matter of fact an old work of refer
ence published in 1795 contains an il
lustration of a fountain pen, the ap
pearance of .which is very much like
those sold at the present time. Its
construction, however, was somowbat
elaborate and clumsy, the pen consist
ing of various pieces of metal which
had to be screwed and unscrewed be
fore the pen could be used.
They Didn't Chatter.
A doctor attended an old lady from
Scotland who bad caught a severe cold.
"Did your teeth chatter when yon
felt the chill coming over you?" asked
"I dlnna ken, doctor; they were lying
on the table!" was the pleasant reply.

probable marriage of the Marquis of
Lome and Princess Louise were float
ing about London Tennyson bad one
day a number of guests at luncheon,
among whom was tbe Marquis of
Lome. In tbe course of talk the mar
quis told Tennyson, tben poet laureate,
that tbe queen liked his new volume.
"I am glad to bear it" Tennyson said
In his sonorous, slow, musical bass
voice. "I have given a good account of
her In that volume, but the newspa
pers didn't like my rimes say they
are bad. I live in terror," he contin
ued, "of any of the queen's fumlly
marrying and of bearing from ber that

have no news of that kind yet but I
live In terror of It."
