LAMBECK, I -for ' Hassan's Lake of Fire. "V doubt If many persons realize the, fascination to be derived from a winter spent lu tue Bahamas," said a visitor Just returned from there the other day. "Down near Nasnau, for example, there Is a curious sheet of water known as the Lake of Fire that Is worth going far to see. It Is simply a phosphor escent lake, but Its weird effects cling to one's recollection In an uncanny way. It Is about three miles from the hotel. You drive through quaint and narrow streets, with only here and there a luinpi""t shedding a dim light, and past the open doors of huts whose occupants seem to fill every space In the abodes to overflowing. "The gates of the old estate of Wa terloo have long since disappeared, and the house Is In ruins, but you drive be tween the posts which still mark the entrance down a gruss grown roadway to the edge of tills wonderful pond. The water Is only a few feet deep, and the pond Is scarcely a quarter of a mile long. We stepped Into a rowboat by the dim light of a lantern, and In a mo ment, as the boat pushed off and the oars broke the wuter Into ripples, we were surrounded by a sea of flame. The divers who swum about seemed literal ly merged In blue smoke, for the effect of this phosphorescence Is more like smoke than water. It reminds one of the butterfly dunce seen on the stage. The form of the diver Is surrounded by a luminous glow, and the fishes take fright and dart away like little flames Into the dark and quiet waters. It Is a beautiful slght."-New York Sun. An l'arly Georgia Monster. In the fore part of August, 1812, a party of hunters found In a mountain ous region now known as Itabun coun ty, Ga a being nearly eight feet high covered with bluish hair and having a human face adorned with immense ears resembling those of an ass. The creature was stone deaf and on that account seemed wholly unconscious of the approach of the men. This mon ster seems, from old accounts, to have been seen upon several occasions dur ing the next four years. In 1S1G a number of adventurers from Virginia, most of them surveyors working up the unexplored portions of Georgia and the Carolines, formed themselves into a party for the express purpose of capturing the uncanny be ing If possible. They scoured the hills and valleys for several days and at last returned unsuccessful to the starting point The many tales told of this extraordi nary being seem to have created quite a stir nil along the Atlantic coast. A printed circular Issued by a land com pany In 1S15 says, "The climate of Georgia Is exceedingly mild, the soli productive, and the danger of attack from uncouth beasts which are repre sented as being half beast and half man are fairy tales not worthy of con siders tloji." Barri-more and Modjeeka. Maurice Itarryinore earned a reputa tion as a wit and really deserved It. His stjle could be less successfully transferred to the stage, as his efforts at comic 'Writing showed, but In Its spontaneous phases Its effect always told. One of the stories told was about his experiences with Mini'. Modjeska. w ith whom he acted for several years. He had been as careless as he often was oil the stage, and Mme. Modjeska, with all the conscientiousness of a great artist, protested that be had no right to take his calling so lightly and that If he did not owe It to his reputa tion to do his best he at least owed It to her. because she had done so much In his behalf and had put him before the public In a dignified and serious line of parts. "Why. madam," he said, "It Is not you w ho brought me before the public and made me known. People had heard of mo all over the United States when they thought that Modjeska was only the name of a tooth wash." A Crushed Lawyer. Some time ago a well known San Francisco attorney, who prides himself upon his handling of Chinese witnesses, was defending a railway damage case. Instead of following the usual ques tions as to name, residence. If the na ture of an oath were understood, etc., he began: "What Is your name?" "Kee Lung." "You live in San FranclscoT" "Yes." "You sabble God?" "Mr. At torney, If you mean 'Do I understand the entity of our Creator? I will sim ply say that Thursday evening next I shall address the State Ministerial as sociation on the subject of the 'Divinity of Christ and shnll be pleased to have you atteud." Needless to say, a general roar of laujjliter swept over the courtroom at this clever rally, and It was some min utes, much to the discomfiture of the lawyer for the defense, before order was restored and the examination pro ceeded upon ordinary lines. Argonaut Doalan- an Elephant. A difficult operation was performed the other day at the zoological gardens t Hanover. An elephant was suffer ing great pain from a growth on the lower part of one of Its hind feet, and ft was deemed necessary to cut this malformation away. In order to ren Jer the animal Insensible a dose of COO grains of morphia In six bottles of rum was administered. This dose took bout an hour before any visible effect was produced. The elephant then fell aver in a klud of sleep, and the opera tlon was successfully carried out with jut any further ado. The operation asted In all three days. London Ulobe.

At a recent dinner In London the conversation turned on the subject of lynchlngs In the United States. It was the general opinion that a rope was the chief end of man In America. Finally the hostess turued to an Amer ican, who had taken no part lu the conversation, and said: "You, sir, must have often seen these affairs." Yes," he replied, "we take a kind of municipal pride In seeing which city can show the greatest number of lynchlngs yearly." "Oh, do tell us about a lynching you have seen yourself," broke in hah? a dozen voices at once. The night before I sailed for Eng land," said the American, "I was giv ing a dinner to a party of Intimate friends when a colored waiter spilled a plate of soup over the gown of a lady at an adjoining table. The gown was Utterly ruined, and the gentlemen of her party at once seized the waiter, tied a rope around his neck and, at a signal from the Injured lady, swung him Into the air." "Horrible!" said the hostess, with a shudder. "And did you actually see this yourself?" Well, no," said the American apolo getically. "Just at that time I was down stairs killing the chef for putting mustard In the blancmange." Modem Society. Kind Ileartedneaa. The gingham shlrted boy had made a break to pass the ticket seller at the circus entrance, but that gentleman had caught him and rudely thrust him back. "Poor little devil!" said a seedy look ing man In the crowd. "If I had the money, I'd buy him a ticket myself." The crowd looked sympathetic, but said nothing, while the boy sobbed at if his heart would dissolve. "I've only got a nickel, little feller," went on the seedy looking one, "and thai won't do you no good. Say," he con tinued, turning suddenly to the crowd, "let's do one good act in our lives. Let'i buy him a ticket." It looked for a minute as If a collec tion was to be started, but a benevo lent looking old gentleman nipped It Id the bud by slipping a half dollar lntc the hand of the boy, who promptly dis appeared Into the tent "I thank you a thousand times fot that kind act, sir," said the seedy look ing man. "You seem to take quite an Interest In the little fellow," remarked the be nevolent one. "Well," I should think I ought to." answered the seedy looking man proud ly. "That's the only son I got!"

The Philadelphia Record says that I railroad contractor who recently re turned from abroad tells of an experi ence that befell him lu Munich Illustra tive of the difference In prevailing cus toms. Armed with a number of letters of Introduction to European railroad officials, he made It a point to Inquire Into the workings of the various sys tems and was treated with uniform courtesy. At Munich he thought he had acquir ed all the Information he was after, and as he passed out of the ofllce of the man with whom he had been talking he put on his hat He had scarcely been ushered out when It occurred to him that there was one matter about which he had forgotten to Inquire. "I Immediately retraced my steps, said the Philadelpblan, "and again en tered the ofllce, neglecting to remove my hat I saw the same official with whom I had been talking, and, apolo gizing for taking up so much of hli time, I put the question to him. With out a word he reached up, took off my hat and placed It In my hand. Then he answered my query and bowed me out It made me feel rather cheap." On a Daalneaa Ilaala.

Chicago News. lh most heallna in th wtrld Why Hachannn .Never Married. "Mr. Buchauau. who was the tirst bachelor elected to the presidency, was 65 years of age w hen elected and had deliberately given himself to a life of celibacy." writes William IYrrlue In The Ladle' Home Journal. 'In the days when he was a young lawyer of Utncaster, Pa., he had loved Miss Coleman, a beautiful daughter of a citizen of that town. They had been engaged to 1m married, w hen one day he was surprised to receive from her a request to release her from the prom Ise. According to Mr. George Tick nor Curtis, the separation originated In a misunderstanding on the part of the lady, who was unusually sensitive, over some small matter exaggerated by giddy and Indiscreet tongues. Soon after the estrangement she was sent to Philadelphia and there died sud denly. Throughout the rest of his life, or for nearly half a century, Mr. lluchnnnn Is not known to have revealed to any body the circumstances of this ro mantic tragedy, lie would only say that It had changed his hopes and plans and had led him more deeply than ever Into politics as a distraction from his grief. In his old age, long after he had retired permanently to private life, he called attention to a package containing, he said, the pa pers and relics which would explain the causes of his youthful sorrow and which he preserved evidently with the Idea of revealing them before his death. Hut when he died and his will was read It was found that he had di rected that the package should be burned without being opened, and his Injunction was obeyed." Irtah LaeemaklnR-. After the famine of 1817 lacemaklng was revived lu Ireland. Limerick, the most successful Irish lace. Is not real ly a lace at all. It Is tambour work up on net and muslin. The Irish point, so called. Is the an cient cut work, being made In quite the same way. Net was first made by machinery in 1708. The machine was an adaptation of the stocking loom to lacemaklng and was cumbrous and not very effect ive. In 1800 John Heathcote, a fann er's son, evolved from consciousness and experience the first machine to make true bobblnet with perfect six sided holes. It brought a great hue and cry about his ears from laceworkers, who fancied they saw themselves thus reduced to beggary. The Luddites broke Into the factory where the machines were first set up and made scrap iron and kindling wood of them. The only result was to drive the new manufacture to other and safer .quarters. For long the secret of the machine's construction was most Jealously guarded by English manufac turers. Not satisfied with letters pat ent they kept up a coast patrol to make sure that nobody took model or draw ings to France. At last, though, they were outwitted. A discharged workmau who had the plan of It In his mind managed to get safe over sea and build a machine in France. Sort of a Cannibal. An old farmer for many years got his dinner on market days at a small hotel kept by a widow. She had long suspected that he ate more than the price (Is. Cd.) warranted, so she determined to test him. She ac cordingly arranged matters so that there was no room for him at table, but she took him Into a private room the table of which was graced by a steam ing leg of mutton. He set to In good earnest, and soon nothing was left but the bones. Highly delighted with his cheap feed, on passing the bar he tendered 2 shil lings for his dinner and a quart of ale. The widow declined to take any pay ment on the ground of having Incon venienced him so much. Chuckling to himself, the farmer lift ed down his market basket from a hook, and, finding It rather light, he tore off the covering and shouted: "Here, Mrs. llrowu, Where's my leg o mutton?" "Why, ye old silly," said the widow, "ye have ate your leg for your dinner!" London Answers. Conversion Through Pork. An old Cambridge friend of mine who had a good deal of the wisdom of the serpent In him had a furmer In his par ish In Norfolk whom he could uot get to church. Whenever he pressed upon him his neglect or his bad example tie was always met with the same excuse, "You be too young and do not know enough to teach such as I." At last he gave up the farmer In despair. Hut one day he happened to pass by the farm while his parishioner was en gaged In killing a fine pig. My friend said: "What a pig! Why, he weighs 4 stone!" "What dost thou know of pigs?" replied the farmer. "1 only wish he weighed as much." When they next met the farmer, to his surprise, told my friend that the pig had been found to weight Just 34 stone. He added, much to my friend's gratification. "And thou wilt see me at church next Sun lay, parson." Manchester Guardian. What Are Wo Coming; Tot The fond mother had Just killed 10 of her 12 children.
