Harney Ilaraato’s Good Fortune.
It is better to be bom lucky rich. When Mr. Barnato was at Johan-' nesburg, he determined to go to the races. “You’ll only lose your money,” said bis friends warningly. “Well, I won’t take any with me, ’ lie replied, “And then I shall be all right.’’ Arrived at the race course, he saw a man with a peanut and fruit stall and asked him what he’d take for it. “Two hundred pounds,” was the re ply. “Done with you,” said Barnato. “Wall, where’s the money?” asked the man as Barnato was proceeding to appropriate the stall. “Oh, I’m Mr. Barnato. It’ll be all right.” “Well, that’s good enough for me. ” i Within an hour Barnato had sold the | contents of the stall for £OOO. He paid the man his £2OO, staked the balance on the races and won £12,000 before the end of the day. Perhaps it is not generally known now bow Mr. Barnato came to be mar ried. The beginnings of his fortune are said to have been due to the prudent purchase of diamonds in South Africa. These he deposited for safety with a certain barmaid in Kimberley. After a time he said to her: “Give me my dia monds. I’m off to Europe. When I re turn, we’ll be married.” “I think we’ll be married first,” she replied, and those were the only terms on which he could get back his dia monds. Now t this astute young lady is the present Mrs. Barnato, and her baby drives along the King’s road at Brigh ton in a silver perambulator.—London Figaro. His Irrelevant Question. She had just returned from a visit tc Milwaukee, and something had happen ed to displease her. “Thefact of the matter is,” she said, “we get swindled in this town and haven’t sense enough to know it. ” “You must have run across a bargain somewhere,” lie suggested* for he knew her failing. “Bargains!” she exclaimed. “Why, I tell you, William, we don’t know where to shop to make money. Do you remember that last white shirt I bought you?” He did. He would have said ho did even if he didn’t, hut it so happened this time that he did, for it had given him considerable trouble in one way and another. “Well,” she exclaimed, “I paid just $1 for that shirt iu Chicago, and I saw I an exact duplicate of it at a marked down sule in Milwaukee for 98 cents. ” “Why didn’t you go ou to St. Paul?” he asked wearily. “Perhaps you could have got the same thing for 94, or Winnipeg might have given it to yon for 91. One has to go after bargains, you know. ” She wasn’t quite sure whether he was making fun cf her, hut she felt that it was possible and refused to con tinue the subject iu consequence.— Chicago Post. The Forth bridge, in Scotland, is con stantly being repainted. So vast is the structure that it takes 50 tons of paint to give it one coat, and the area dealt with is something like 120 acres.

Scrofula Is a deep-seated blood disease which all the mineral mixtures in the world cannot cure. S.S.S. (guaranteedpurely vegetable ) is a real blood remedy for blood diseases and has no equal. Mrs. Y. T. Buck, of Delaney, Ark., had Scrofula for twenty-five years and most of the time was under the care of the doctors who could not relieve her. A a specialist said he could cure her, but he filled her with arsenic and potash which almost ruined her constitution. She then took nearly every so-called .blood medicine and drank them by the wholesale, but they did not reach her trouble. Some one advised her to trv S.S.S. and she very soon found that she had a real blood remedy at last. She says: “After tak ing one dozen bottles of S.S.S. I am perfectly well, my skin is clear and healthy and I would not be in my former condition for two thousand / dollars. Instead of drying tip the poison ' in my system, like the potash and arsenic, S.S.S. drove the disease out through the skin, and I was perma nently rid of it.” A Real Blood Remedy* S.S.S. never fails to cure Scrofula, Eczema, Rheumatism Contagious Blood Poison, or any disorder of the blood. Do not rely upon a simple tonic to cure a deep-seated blood disease, but take a real blood remedy. Our books ' free upon appli- ap| cation. Swift SKSu,g.

During Dr. Nansen’s Arctic journey his ship, the Fram, remained for five and a half months, from Oct. 8, 1895, until March 24, 1896, out of sight of the sun. “This,” Dr. H. R. Mill, the En glish geographer, remarks, “was the longest and darkest night ever expe rienced by man.” The Longest Ocean Cable. The new transatlantic cable, -which Is to be laid between Brest and New York during the coming summer, will, it is said, be the longest Ln existence. The length will be 3,250 nautical miles, and the total weight of the cable with its envelope Is estimated at 11,000 tons. Four large ships are to be employed in stretching It across the ocean's bottom. Fast Trains. According to a European authority, only two regular express trains on the continent of Europe, one running from Paris to Nice and the other from Os tend through Germany to the Russian frontier at Eydtkuhnen, average so much as thirty-eight and a half miles per hour. The same authority esti mates the average express speed be tween New York and Chicago at about forty-eight and a third miles per hour, almost ten miles faster than the best European time. Insects’ benses. Darwin and other naturalists have believed that the bright colors of flow ers serve to attract Insects. Prof. Pla teau of Ghent disagrees with this opin ion, and thinks that the sense of smell is the one chiefly concerned in causing insects to frequent certain flowers. He tinds that the removal of the brilliant petals of flowers to which Insects are accustomed to resort does not decrease the frequency of their visits, and on the other hand, that when honey is placed on flowers which are naturally scent less. insects immediately begin to flock to them. Whale-Killing with Electricity. A Canadian sea-captain has invented an apparatus with which he thinks whales can be killed by electric shock. A harpoon is fixed at the end of a long metallic cable, properly insulated, and which serves in place of the usual rope. Through this cable an electric current of 10,000 volts is to be sent by means of a dynamo earned in the whale-boat. The inventor believes that no whale would be able to withstand the shock it would receive the instant the harpoon entered its side. Fighting Fish. It is said that the favorite sport of the Siamese is flsh-flghting. So popu lar is it that, according to the Fish Trades Gazette, the King of Siam de rives a considerable revenue from the license fees exacted for the privilege of keeping fighting fish. The fish are described as being long and slender, “not thicker than a child’s finger,” and very ferocious. The moment they are placed together in a vessel of water they dart at one another, and the on lookers become so excited over the con test that they wager anything they have at hand on the success of their favorite fish. Barsting Steel. An experiment which demonstrated the capacity of steel to endure greater pressure than the hardest stone was recently made at Vienna. Corundum was chosen for the stone, and small cubes of both substances were placed under pressure. A weight of six tons smashed the corundum, but forty-two tons were required to crush the steel. When the steel did give way, the ef fects are described as most remarka ble. With a loud explosion, the metal flew Into powder, and Its sparks are said to have bored minute holes in the crushing machine. The Indians’ Pipe Qnarry. In Southwestern Minnesota 1s a cele brated quarry where the Indians have for centuries obtained a soft red stone out of which they carve pipes. The quarry belongs to the Sioux, to whom it was ceded by the United States Gov ernment forty years ago. Mr. A. H. Gottscliall says this is the only place in America, and probably in the world, where this particular kind of stone is found. Many tribes of the red men formerly resorted to the quarry, and ' the pipestone seems to have been an ar ( tide of commerce among them, for it has been found in Indian graves scat tered all the way from the Great Lakes to the Gulf of Mexico. It has also been found as far west as the Rocky moun tains, and in British America. Electric Bicycle Light. A St. Louis inventor has patented a device by means of which a bicycle rider may furnish himself with an elec tric headlight, the necessary current being generated by the revolution of the wheels of the machine. A governor is provided which keeps the current substantially uniform, so that the light does not die out if the speed is reduced, or blaze too brilliantly when the speed is increased. By throwing the shaft that rotates the armature into gear as darkness comes ou, the wheelman at once provides himself with a light; but of course he has to work for it, as it is his own muscles that form the source of the energy from which the electric current is developed. Courtesy a Duty. While admitting a tendency on the part of many women to accept all cour tesies from the opposite sex as a right, some of the statements made under this head have been greatly exaggerated. It has been said that women habitually accept an offered seat iu a public con veyance without thanks. That some women are thus discourteous, it is true; but the eases are exceptional. There Is another side to the story, as there is to most stories. There are ways of of fering a seat which hopelessly preclude thanks, and may expose the recipient of the attention, if attention it can be termed, to misconstruction. It Is not uncommon to see a man, after silently enduring a struggle between his de sire to remain at liis ease and that in nate chivalry which is his heritage, rise hastily, and with a sort of injured air, take liis place on the platform. Sometimes he is speechless; at othex-s he gruffly remarks: “Seat, lady!” and does not so much as look at her in pass- j ing. The weary shopper sinks into the abandoned resting place with thanks in her heart, though she has no oppor tunity of offering them in words, and as he does not glance in her direction, she cannot even look her gratitude. There is another way of offering a seat which very properly precludes ac knowledgment. A man i-etains his place until he reaches his destination; then, when he has no further use for it. he offers it with an air of great civility to some lady standing near. Such a civility deserves no thanks at all. His information, which is really all he gives, is useless. She knows that he must take his body with him when he departs, and thus leave a vacancy. If more than one woman is standing, he has no right to designate which one : shall profit by his absence. He is not entitled to thanks, and it is just that they should be withheld. Wonderful ln Name Only. American nomenclature is a never- \ ending source of surprise and amuse- j ment to foreigners. The last time Sarah Bernhardt was over here she was driven nearly into hysterics by a telegram from Kalamazoo. She insist ed that no place ever had such a name and believed that the telegram was a joke. When the location of that pretty Michigan town was pointed out to her on the map and her attention was also called to Kankakee and Oshkosh her j astonishment knew no hounds. Tennessee alone lias enough freak j towns to stock a geographical museum. | Think of A. B. C., Dull. Leap Year, Limbs, Only, U Bet nnd Calf Killer. Ohio has a little town called Al.

At the close of that season in which Shuter, the Toole of fifty years ago, fii*st became so universally and deserv edly celebrated, he was engaged for a few nights in a principal city in the north of England. It was in the coach ing days, and it happened that the stage in which he went down, and in which there was only an old gentleman and himself, was stopped by a single highwayman. The old gentleman pretended to be asleep, but Shuter resolved to be even with him. Accordingly, when the high wayman presented his pistol and com manded Shuter to deliver his money instantly or he was a dead man, he re turned: “Money!” with an idiotic shrug and a countenance inexpi’essibly vacant. “Oh, lor, sir, they never trust me with any, for uncle here always pays for me, turnpikes and all, your honor!” Upon which the highwayman gave him a few curses for his stupidity, com plimented the old gentleman with a smart slap on the face to awaken him, and robbed him of every shilling he had in his pocket, while Shuter, who did not lose a single farthing, with great satisfaction and merriment pur sued his journey, laughing heartily at his fellow traveler. Ancient Graves. Two graves of the form called “ship” shaped ones, dating from the early iron age, have been discovered near Aal boi’g, in Jutland, similar graves hav ing only been once before encountered ln Denmark. They are built of stones in the form of a ship, the calcined ash es of the body being sti-ewn at the bot tom. Further, nine skeletons from the late iron age have been found near Freder lckshavu, the size of the bones indicat ing that they were persons of small stature. In addition, four smooth rings of bronze, having, no doubt, formed a necklet, have been dug out of a P<?at bog in the same locality. A runic stone of great interest has been discovered at Kinneculia, in West Gothia, Sweden, having hitherto been covered with turf. The portion un covered represents some ships, the fig ures of two men, a great number of saucer-shaped cavities, wheels, rings, and so forth, engraven on the rock, but there appears to be a great many more signs below. The crown has taken pos session of It, and a careful survey is being made. Different Names for Waves. They have curiously different names for waves about the coast of Great Britain. The Peterhead folk call the large breakers that fall with a crash on the beach by the grim name of “Nor rawa ( Norway) carpenter.” On the low Lincolnshire coast, as on the southwest ern Atlantic fi’ontiug shore of these islands, the gradually long unbroken waves ire known as “rollers.” Among East Anglians a heavy surf, tumbling In with an offshore wind, or in a calm, is called by the expressive name of a “slog;” while a well-marked swell, roll ing in independently of any blowing, is called a “home.” “There is no wind,” a Suffolk fisherman will say, “but a nasty home on the beach.” Suffolk men also speak of the “bark” of the surf, and a sea covered with foam is spoken of as “feather white.” The foam itself is known as “spoon drift.” go, in the vernacular, we have it: “The sea was all a feather white with spoon drift.”—New York Marine Journal.
