Monterey Milling Co. HIS NINE CHEESES. An Old Time New England Story of a Stingy Parson. Anecdotes in whlclf the mean and grasping mun is outwitted or held up to ridicule are popular everywhere and always. Few ancient towns are with? out their historic or traditional In? stances of stinginess punished or sharp practice defeated. In one village of New England, says the Youth's Com panion.-tbere is still current such a tale concerning an unpopular parson of j more than a century ago. Although a learned man ot impress-j ive manners, this clergyman was noted for undue reluctance to expend aud , readiness to acquire. He bad a habit | of pleading poverty and hinting for gifts. The parish, although with some mur? muring, had responded wjtli fuel for his kitchen, hay for his liof?.\ Thanks? giving turkeys for his table aud a "subscription cloak" of black satin for his wife when her wedding mnnteau became shabby. -The murmurs In-( creased when it was found that the paitoa turned an honest but over shrewd pen iy by selling instead of, using many of these donations. But they were not loud enough to disturb his stately calm, and he went his way without condescending fo notice them. At last, however, fortune played bim trick for trick. One pleasant winter day he made a round of calls, aud at each bouse, wheu just about to leave, he easuaUy asked his hostess if she could let him have a little piece of cheese, as hts wife happened to have none in tho house and unexpected company had arrived. In each case tho good house? wife, Instead of a little piece, generous? ly presented him with a whole cheese, which he graciously accepted. As he turned from the door stone at the duse of the last visit, while the mother of the family aud her brood of uine chil? dren stood politely gathered to watch him drive away, he carelessly pulled tbe wrong rein, the sleigh tipped sharply on a drift, and out from under the ministerial lap robe rolled nine large cheeses, which spun frlskly away in ail directions on the icy crust. His hostess understood the situation at a glance. "Don't disturb yourself, pray, sir." she said politely as bc made a motion to descend. "It is quite unnecessary. The children will gather them up, and none will be overburdened or will there be any quarreling for the priv? ilege. See; lt is Just a cheese to a child." So it was, and the embarrassed par? son, unable to escape, was obliged to receive back his cheeses, with due thanks to each giggliug volunteer as they came up lu gleeful procession one by one. ? Too well he knew that by the next day the whole parish would be laugh? ing at his misadventure, although he could scarcely have guessed that the joke would be recalled a hundred years later. Nature'f Cunning. Protective mimicry, that cunning de? vice of nature to preserve animals from their enemies, is well known in the eggs of certain fishes, notably the California shark, known ns Gyropleu rodus francis.!. The shark ls of a sluggish habit, lurking among rocks, and Its dark egg resembles a leaf ef kelp or seaweed folded up spirally. It ls deposited among the beds of kelp and clings to the leaves by the edges of the spirals. The young shark bursts open thc ead of the egg and swims away. Another shark's egg of tho Pa? cific coast has tentacles which clasp the seaweed and also Imitate its appear? ance. Mozart and Bretxner. When Mozart was at the height of his fame he composed the music of Bretzner's "Belmont undf Konstanze" ("Tue Abduction From the Seraglio") at the request of Emperor Joseph IL The author of the drama was so angry nt this that he Inserted the following notice In the Leipziger Zeitung: "A certaiu fellow of the name of Mozart has dared to misuse my drama, 'Bel? mont und Konstanze,' for an opeia text. I hereby, solemnly protest against this invasion of my rights, and I re? serve to myself further procedures. (Signed) Christoph Friedrich Bretzner, Author of 'Itausch-chen.' " Long Necked Belles. Eastern standards of beauty differ, (Ike the customs, from those of the west. In Malacca, we are told, the small waist and velvet eyes do not count, but Instead the length of the ueck ls the criterion of beauty. The girl of Malacca at a very early age ls fitted with a metal collar, which compete her to keep her head erect, and r.s she grows the collar is increased In lize, and by this means the neck ls gradually elongated.

What If I tel! you that the Italians, taking them as a people, do not eat macaroni, and yet this is virtually true. Macaroni In Italy costs 4 to 8 cents a pound, aud It ls too costly for common use. It ls about as accurate to say that the Italians ?ive on macaroni as that the Amer!-1 cans live on turkey. Macaroni to the working Italian is niuxury. You often' see young fellows on a haliday in-' dulging in a dish In a restArant or before a street cook stand about as Americans would eat ice cream. A customary workman's dinner is a hunk of bread broken apart and "buttered", with a few traces of tomato sauce. As, for meat, lt ls the greatest rarity, and the only drink they can afford ls wa-! ter, which has the advantage of being cheap and filling. The Italians at home are not only temperate, but ab-| stemlous. Wine and beer and even tea, coffee and chocolate are forbidden to them on account of the expense. In all Italy we saw no one under the In? fluence of liquor. So also there ls practically no smoking. The govern? ment has a monopoly of the tobacco business, buys its supplies In quanti? ties direct In America and elsewhere and charges three prices for every*! thing. The few tobacco shops keep a' piece of smoldering tow tied at the doorpost, so that patrons and passers J may light their cigars by lt.?Los An? geles Times. WOMAN'S WIT UNCERTAIN. As When Thie Wife Failed to Ap? preciate Hubby's Pleasantry. "Don't always rely upou ihe ready wit of a woman," said the man who ls sometimes pleased to consider him self aa oracle. "That ready wit busi? ness ls sometimes prone to get way off, "For example, my wife and children had been stayiug in the country for Mreral weeks, and I was regular with jay letters, as every loving husband Bhould be. Finally on the day before my wife was to start for home I cou eluded my letter to her with these words: " This will be% the last letter I will write to you for a long, long time.' "When I got down to my office the next morning I found a telegram from my wife waiting for me. 'What on earth do you mean?* read the dispatch. "Later a registered letter came from her. She had blotted almost every lrne with tears. What lt was all about I could not imagine. "Then my telephone bell rang, and when I answered I heard my wife's voice speaking over the long distance phone. " 'Oh, John!* said she. Ts that really you? I thought you had committed suicide P "?Washington Post. Remedy For Choking, "Raising the left arm as high aa you can will relieve choking much more rapidly than the act of thumping one's back," said a physician, "and it to well that every one should know lt, for often a person gets choked whHe eating where there is no one near to thump him. Very frequently at meals and when they are at play children cjet choked while eating, and the cus? tomary manner of relieving them ls to slap them sharply on the back. The effect of this ls to set the obstruction free. The same thing can be brought ibout by raising the left hand of the -hild as high as possible, and the re? lief comes much more quickly. In happenings of this kind there should be no alarm, for if the child sees that .lder persons or parents get excited the effect is bad. The best thing ls to tell the child to raise Its left arm, md Immediately the difficulty passes iiway." The Popping Stone. "The popping stone" marks the spot where Sir Walter Scott asked Miss Carpenter to marry him. It ls situated In the beautiful valley of the Irthlng. at Gllsland. an inland watering place near Carlisle.

Papeke, Tahiti, July 13.?Often as I have watched the Maripesa .team out through the Gold? en Gate, at San Francisco, I have bad the lines of Kipling ring in my mind, and'I have thought "she's .arrying tired people to the island ,f the blest." Ever since when as i small child I sprawled on the toor looking at pictures of scenes n the South Sea islands, and all ;hese mysterious lands below the equator, I have long for the day to .ome when I, too, could go to the "islands of the blest," and rest in :hat wonderful dreamland. Now he dream has come true and mys? ery no longer surrounds the tropi ;al islands below the equator, for I lilting on Lovina's porch, surround? ed by tropical foliage, and breathi? ng an air redplent with the per ume of all these tropical fruits vhich we hear about, but seldom ee in temperate zones. The charm still remains, howev ;r, but I have been one of these 'tired people" and have come to he "island of the blest." I have een these things which we of the >rosaic temperate zone are vouch afed only in dreams, and now there s left to me a longing that will lever be satisfied until I can so ar ange my affairs that I can return o these islands of the blest and >ass my declining years. July 14 . the French Fourth of July, and ,s these islands are under French lomination, the more to be regret ed, I have reached here just in ime to be in the midst of the cele iration. This is the evening of he great day, and all around are he sounds of such a merry making s only these simple-minded, tropi al children of nature can devise to xpress their pleasure. We cele ?rate our Fourth of July in the itates with much noise, speech naking and music, and a liberal al .wance of drunkenness mixed in o show good faith. On the Maripesa, coming down, te did not escape this idea, for we iad our celebration in the social tall, music, speechmaking, hilari y and even the drunkenness hrown in for good measure. There" re always a few Americans who eem to think that when they are .board ship, or in foreign land, hey have license to do many hings that would disgrace them if hey were at home, and we had a ew of these aboard. Captain Hay? ward permitted much license be ause it was the Fourth of July, .nd he even went so far as to per nit the display of a few fireworks rom the bow of the ship in the tvening. But all this almost laded rom our memories when we watch sd the natives of Tahiti show their >atriotism to France by celebrat ng the fall of the Bastille. It seemed as if Fate stepped in o assist the people of this far vway land in the South Seas in heir effort to provide ample enter ainment for the visitors on the kfaripese, for fairer weather and moother seas could not be imag ned than those which marked the losing days of the twelve day voy ige from San Francisco. Twelve lays is a long time at sea, especial y when in all that time there is no ight of land; nothing but the ev irlasting, continually rolling and ossing, consequently when we did py out a bit of low lying land in he evening, yesterday, it was a ight that took all of us eighty odd lassengers to the bow of the ship, md even the ordinarily welcome ound of the dinner gong failed to Iraw us down below until we had easted our eyes to the full on the Married Man In Trouble.

In my younger days I wrote some lines to my Dear One's eyes and to her Voice, which I likened to "Music on the waters "Whose sound is causing the charmed Ocean's pausing. " "And the waves lie still and gleaming, "And the midnight moon is weav? ing her bright chain o'er the deep "Whose breast is gently heaving, like an infant's asleep." All this and more we saw on the evening before we sighted the rag? ged outline of the rocks of Tahiti, called the "diadem," but more nearly resembling the the head of some demon of the deep. Late in the evening the frowding front of the outlying islands loomed upon the horizon, and then the full moon rose just as the sun sank in the wa? ters of the west, and all night long her bright chain was woven on the bossom of the deed. It was a night of unrest, for each of us de rised to be among the first to sight the "island of the blest," and ma? ny of us remained on deck the night thr_ough. What we saw I shall tell in my next letter. Clarenle E. Edwords. Woman Interrupts Speaker. A well-dressed woman interrupt? ed a political speaker recently by continually coughing.
