No Alcoholic leverage Sold at Itetall In Norway or Sweden. "hxclse laws In Norway and Sweden are curious," suid a returned traveler. "My first experience with them was In a little town called Dronthein or Trond jom I've heard It pronounced a dozen different ways. I reached there late In the. afternoon and dined In the hotel with two American artists whom I had met on the steamer. "We called for a pny of brandy apleco with our coffee, and the waiter, who, curl ously enough, was a Frenchman, stared at us with ppccuhlcss and sorrowful amaze ruent for a moment and then replied: 'If I served you with what you ask for, I would have to hpend six months In prison, and If I filled your glasses a second time inon Dieu! I don't know when would ever see France aaln.' "It rooms that some years ao the Nor wetfian government recognized the fact that its citizens were becoming the most drunken In Europe. The result was that a law was passed prohibiting thesaloat retail of all alcoholic beverages, no matter where or in what sort of an establishment. "The smallest quantity which was al lowed to be sold at retail was a liter, or a trillo less than a quart. Tho hardy Nor wegian dipsomaniac, therefore, buys his liter of brandy or other hard liquors, and tucking it under his coat hurries homo. "Onco within his own four walls be may get as drunk as ho chooses, but he must keep his door strictly closed, and if he ko much as shows his drunken face at the window ho is at once arrested and spends several months In jail. The man who sold him the liquor, moreover, is heavily fined and has to pay all the judi cial costs." New Vork World. IS. I. ItliCHWITII. AI.

Some yoars ago I paid a visit to mv nephew's vleanigo In Buckinghamshire. He Informed me that a new industry had sprung up in his parish there was a de mand for bumblebees, which could be sold for fourpence a bead. He could not inform me what led to this demand, nor could tho villagers who had sold tho bees do so. On inquiring who took tho bees o.Dd paid tho juop I wa referred to the boemaster of a neighboring village. 1 found him out on tlie next day, when ho Informed me that the growingof rod clover in New Zealand Lad failed for want of a native insect capable of fertilizing the plant. As the bumblebee fertilized the red clover in England, it was proposed to send a colony of bumblebees over to Now Zealand, which ho did, but t lie first lot perished, a was supposed, from excess of heat in crossing t lie equator. A second colony was more fortunate. It took kindly to tho Islands and performed the function required of it successfully. Tho case Is well put by an entomologist: "Many of our Kngllsh flowers are capable of being fertilized by only one kind of in sect. The common red clover Is visited by tho humblelwe, the petals are fused to gether, forming a narrow tube, surround ing the honey glands and the organs that form the pollen; the long proboscis of the bumblebee can roach tho honey, but the hlvo bee's tongue Is shorter and cannot do so. When clover was first grown in Aus tralia it never needed, bocauso the tongues of the native Imm-s were too short to reach tho pollen." Notes and Queries. A BIRD FESTIVAL What Traveler In China Witnenaod On Day In April. A writer in Our Animal Friends de scribes a festival that she witnessed In China. .She hays: l'aak-tuat Is, 1 must explain, one of the most popular Chinese gods. Ho is sup posed onco to have lived on earth, to have boon fond of bird and very kind to Ihem. Every year, in the month of April, a cele bration Is hold in his honor. This festival, which I saw in the grent southern city of Canton, lasts for three days. .Shops are closed and services held every morning and afternoon In the god's fine temple. On the second evening a curious and bril liant procession passed through tho prin cipal streets. First marc hed tho bearers of huge white lanterns emblazoned with Paak-taal'a name and titles. They wero followed by about 100 boys carrying richly embroidered banners. Then came tho "history trays." Theso wore wooden platforms covered with clay figures arranged to represent different scenes In Paak taal's life. He was shown feeding birds, setting their broken legs and teaching them tricks. Tho figures wero skillfully modeled and beautifully dressed and painted, but the "history trays" wero eclipsed by the next division of tho procession. Thousands of lanterns were borne aloft on polos, each being tho life size imitation of some bird There wore long legged storks, stately peacocks, gorgeous golden pheasants, "snow" pheasants, with long jet black tails, great vultures and eagles, then at last glittering kingfishers, tiny tits and rcodllngs. All tho lanterns wero lit, many oovored with I he real feathers of tho birds Imitated, and they made a very odd aud very pretty show. Alter tne runts roue ooys or all ages, mounted on queer littlo Chinese ponies They wore fantastic dresses and had their faces painted black, white and ml, with here and then; a dash of gold. Some had gilded chins and eyebrows, others gold noses and ears. Tho older boys were en Joying the fun Immensely, vying with sach other in pufling out their cheeks and making nil sorts of queer faoes, but many of tho little fellows wero more than half asleep, and in danger of rolling off the backs of their steeds. Then more lanterns, more banners and a dreadful band of (so called) music ended this amusing pagoant. The Little Ireninaker. Fashionable women aro ery fond of having a mysterious "littlo dressmaker" of their own, who produces successful toil ets, at what they aro ploased to consider a very small cost. 'What a lovely frock 1 WheVo did you get itr" This note of admiration often elicits tho reply: "Oh, a littlo dressmaker I discovered lately made it for mo," and tho fair pos sessor feels quite a sense .of creation in her treasure trove. A woman, Uo, while shop ping in Paris, often finds more real pleas ure In tho "pet lies costumes" which she Invents with tho aid of a clever although obscure little couturlero whom she has "found," than in her most elaborate and costly confections from the great houses, especially if she is successful in bringing her favorite to tho foro and making her famous in the beau monde. Getting Two For One. It is a fact not generally known that na val officers and crews in Chinese and Jap anese waters on the Asiatic station receive their pay In Mexican dollars. "Mexicans" is the term applied to them by tho naval officers. Hid paymaster or a ship makes a llrnbh and sweet breath secured, by 8) l draft on a hanking establishment and re-1 '"h's Catarrh Kcmody, price oOoerit-. 'Nh-jI How Florldianrt Lire Id Summer. The question is often asked, "How do people manage to live In Florida during the summer!1" That they do live, and live comfortably, is evident. Few Floridiaus work very hard during tho hot summer months, for food costs very little. Tho lakes and rivers are alive with fish, tho ground is full of sweet potatoes, corn that will yield 40 bushels to the aero is ripen ing in tho fields, watermelons can be bought for 5 cents each, tomatoes are giv en away In many places, fruits are plenti ful, Florida hoi f is cheap and nourishing, and many other things can bo had for al most nothing Jacksonville (Fla.) Citi on. Mr. Tomklns Is on a tour In Germany. On his departure from a certain town his landlord gives him a letter of introduction to a bnt Iter landlord in Ihe next large town. Prompted by curiosity, our tourist opens ti e letter and reads: "N. li. He Is a wealthy Englishman. Fleece him." Misshe undelivered. Schwarzwalder H..t.. ceives "Mexicans" for the amount, which ho locks in his safe to make his payments. In tho Mediterranean French money is used almost exclusively. In South Amer ica it is usually American and English gold. In Europe some years ago American gold was looked upon with some disfavor, but English gold was always popular. Now American gold and even paper money pass without dilJiculty. On tho Asiatic station the "Mexicans" aro purchased by the paymaster at their bullion value and aro paid to ihe officers and crow at the same rate, usually being t- for every ono due the men. The money usually being expended in those countries, the men want tho kind that circulates and "Mexicans" aro the favorite, especially with tho Chi nese. Officers who do not use their money while on tho station generally prefer New York drafts. Philadelphia Hullotln. He Waa Truly Polite. A visiting young man in town recently ato the ribbons that were tied around the sandwiches served him at a card party. He was very polite and didn't like to ask what the ribbons were for, s he. ato them. As he had at least four sandwiches It Is estimated that he ato fully three yards of ribbon. u have hud occasion so often to point out the blunders inado by visiting Topeka people that we charitably refrain from saying where this unfortunate young man was from. Atchison Globe. Would lf- Have Yielded? "I wonder," said Tommy, who had Imhmi reading tho poem about the Arab who re fused a purse of gold for his beloved steed, "I wonder what he would have did if they had offered to trade '1m a bysicklo."

He has used it in his family for several years with the best results and always keens a bottle of it in the house. Aflcr having lagrippo he was himself troubled with a severe cough.
