"It would Klve a genuine and reli gious Turk a tit If ho taw how little appreciation Amerleans show for the rose and what little revereuco they have for It," spoke a florist ns he wrap ped the foil nhout the stems of n bmi tonnlere. "The rose Is beyond question the pret tiest tlower that blooms, and It was so ronsldered by the Turks many years before the conquest of Granada. There Is a religious legend generally believed In throughout Turkey that the red rose sprang from a drop of the great proph rt Mohammed's blood. Everything beautiful In nature Is ascribed to him. The Turks, therefore, have great rev erence for the tlower and allow It to bloom and die untouched, except on state occasions and for the purpose of making rosewater. "After the conquest by the Turks they would not worship In any church until the walls were cleansed and wash ed with rosewater and thus purified by the blood of the prophet. It Is used on the body for the same purpose. A Turk whose conscience is stung by some act or deed he has committed will caress and pay iTverenee to the rose to ap pease the wrath of the prophet and Allah. "With these ideas Inculcated In him from youth It would shock him severe ly to see the pretty tlower strewn In the path of a bridal couple, thrown on the public stage or banked up In hun dreds at a swell reception or party to be crushed and spoiled In an evening."

"I hesitate to say just what I think Df you," angrily exclaimed one of the two, "for you have not many years to live! Consumption has marked you for a victim." "Oh, it has, has It? How do you know?" "Py the 'dubbing' of your lingers," referring to the wasting away of the lingers near where they join the hands. "Do I need to call your attention to that?" "Perhaps not," retorted the other. "P.ut do you know you bear the unmis takable Indication of an early death yourself?" "Where, sir?" "In those hollows at the back of your neck near the head, where you can't sec them. They denote a fatal lack of vitality." "In that case." rejoined the one who had spoken first, extending his hand, "we are foolish to quarrel. Let us prescribe for each other." They are still alive and apparently !n excellent health. -Youth's Compan ion. AwnlriKN In nitr Lot. "To supply some of the biff modern auildings with awnings," said an awn lug maker, "costs as much as It would to build a moderate sized house. "Net all cf the great buildings require awnings. Some of the very largest have their principal exposure In such a direct iou that they are not needed, the sun not shining on these windows dur ing the hours the offices are occupied. And then, of course, there are great buildings that do not require awnings on some sides, but need them on others or In courts, and so on. "Here, for Instance, Is a building with about l.ooo windows, of which (KM) or thereabout are supplied with awnings. "Another building I have In mind has about l.',oo windows. I don't know how many awnings they have there, but If It Is supplied In the same propor tion ns the other that would give It about l.O'jo awnings. I dare say that, in fact, you would find hi the city sin gle buildings with more than a thou sand awnings. "You see. Just the awnings for some of these great modern buildings amount to quite an item." New York Sun. I tllizinK the Ad. "Now, if you will show me where the burglars got Into your shop." said the detective. "I will see If 1 can find a clew." "In a moment." said the proprietor. "I ,rw:i working at something a little more Important than hunting for a clew just now." And while the detective waited the merchant wrote ns follows at his desk: "The burglar who broke Into Katzcn hefter's shop on the night of the loth and carried away a silk hat. a pair of French calfskin boots, a fur trimmed overcoat, a black broadcloth suit and two suits of silk underwear was a black hearted villain and scoundrel, but a man whose Judgment cannot be called into question, lie knew where to go when he wanted the finest cloth ing the market affords." "Jacob," he said to the bookkeeper, "send a copy of this to oil the papers and tell 'em I want It printed in big black type, to occupy half a column, tomorrow morning. Now, Mr. Hawk shaw, I am at your service." London Answers. Thrift In Children. A savings bank account Is a great In centive to thrift In children. If one Is begun for the baby, even with a very small sum. and added through child hood and youth with a certain propor tion of the money that otherwise would be spent carelessly and thoughtlessly by the child, there will be a very respecta ble amount cn the credit side of the ledger when the depositor Is 18 years old.

"This Is the grave of the most Impar tial woman o:i record," said the guide In Cave Hill cemetery to a party who visited the buutifi:I cemetery the oth er day. "Away over that second knoll there Is a lot containing only two graves, and the headstone of each Is marked 'Father.' "The woman who Is buried here was married twice, and the two graves In that lot are the graves of her two hus bands. She tried her host to treat her second husband as she did the first, and even when he died she had no idea of showing any preference. P.ut sho was sick when the funeral service of her second husband was held. She di rected that the partner of her second matrimonial venture be laid by the side of Ihe ii rst. but that enough space be left to bury her between the two. "Ity some hook or crook a mistake was made, and when she visited tho cemetery she found that they were burled side by side, with no space be tween. "Will, sir, she didn't know what to do. She argued that if she should be burled by the side of her first husband It would not be fair to the memory of her last spouse, ami vice versa. What did she do? Why, when she died she left a request that she bo buried in an other lot, away from both of them, and It was heeded." Louisville Courier-Journal. TruiiMlntorM' StiimliliiiK mock. Some amusing instances of trans lators' misunderstandings are mention ed by the London Daily News. An Italian paper not long ago turned Mr. Kudyard Kipling's "Absentmlnded Peg gar" Into a "Distracted Mendicant." A footnote to the same version explain ed "son of a Lambeth publican" as a reference to Mr. Krugcr! The trans lator wIki explains Is often lost. Another Italian editor who translat ed a passage from an English paper about a man who had killed his wife with a poker added an ingenuous foot note to say. "We do not know with cer tainty whether this thing 'pokero' be a domestic or surgical Instrument." In the French version of one ot Scott's novels a Welsh rabbit has to be dealt with. Tho translator, never hav ing met with that article of food, nat urally turned it Into "uu lapin de Galles." L'n fortunately he had some doubt whetlcr his countrymen would understand this and added a lengthy footnote describing how the peculiarly delicious tlavor of the rabbits of Wales created a lari:e demand for them In Scotland, whither they were exported In bulk that would compare with the trade of Ostcml. Japan' Impre KniiMllty. The coast of Japan, notwithstanding Its long shore line and numerous har bors, otters scant allurement to an In vading army. There Is very little beach. The bold crags and bluffs over looking every spot where a modern war vessel can ride at anchor are pro tected by strong fortifications defended by the most modern guns. Yeddo bay. the most feasible bight for invading purposes, needs careful navigation even by steamers of moder ate draft. When torpedoes are planted, it is simply Impregnable, says a writer in Colliers Weekly. When the war with China broke out, a small steamer was selected to pilot merchant steam ers ep and down the bay. I remember perfectly the unexpected curves made by this steamer, showing plainly the countless dangers besetting a hostile Meet regardless of the care that may be used in feeling Its way. No Invad ing army could possibly land, and even if it succeeded in doing so the r ice fields, readily submerged as they are, would iiid materially in thwarting tho advance and in Isolating the enemy. A successful invasion of Japan Is simply Impossible. An Irlxli Itrtort. Pat. the driver of the coal wagon, seemed puzzled when he got up oa High street the other day. He looked at the numbers of several houses and scratched his head in a perplexed way. Finally Mrs. Eaton, for whom the coal was intended, appeared and Inquired: "Peg pardon, but Is that coal for La ton?" "No, mom." responded Pat promptly; "It's not for 'atln; It's fur burniu!"

Sioux City Journal. f Woman Is a conundrum that rtan never seems to give up. ! r iil vat, A professor if lunguugcH some yeati ago on returning from India remarked uiN.ii the paucity of obHtlonabI phrases among the British working classes when compared with 'the abun dance supplied by the orientals of sim ilar rank. To prove this he gives a itase which came tinder his own notice, lie had dismissed a manservant for dishonesty, and the next morning at 0 o'clock he sought an Interview with his former master. He nourished a carv ing knife, with which he plainly in tended to emphasize his remarks. When he found It Impossible to gain admission, he sat under the window, and the "swearing" process legan. lie cursed the professor along the gene alogical tree back to the first ancestor of his race. Then he dwelt upon every detail of his anatomy, from the top of Ills head to the end of his toes. "For three consecutive hours he sat there and swore," says the professor, "with out once reiN ating a phrase." While traveling on the underground railway in London a party of working men entered the same compartment and Interspersed their remarks with the commonest forms of "swearing." The professor politely asked them to desist, whereupon he was told to mind his own business. Heat once com menced to translate Into English some specimens of eastern oaths which he had heard a Calcutta merchant's serv ant use to a missionary's servant. The men sidled from hhn ns If he had the plague and at the next station sought another compartment. Llvenool Post. The Common Frojr. If a traveler were to announce that he had discovered In some remote part of the globe an animal whose tongue was rooted In the front of Its mouth, the tip pointing down the throat, and. further, that the creature's manner of breathing was so peculiar that the sur est way of suffocating It was to keep its mouth fixed open, there would be some little curiosity about the "find." If the discoverer went on to say that the creature began existence as a fish, breathing by means of gills and hav ing a heart of only two chambers, but had undergone transformation, discard ing gills ami gradually acquiring lungs, adding a third chamber to its heart, and so in the truest and most literal sense passing from the order of fishes to the order of reptiles, the public might even become excited about this extraordinary animal until it came out that it was no other than tin common or garden frog. Then probably 11) per sons out of 1!0 would Instantly cease to take any Interest In the subject. If they did not feel some resentment against the man who had contrived to draw their attention for a time to such a common reptile. The tin I n In Goinic Through ColleRO. The benefit that a man who cares for a college education gets by going to college Is a benefit that Is already his at the time he graduates. During the four years or three years which he spent at college he made himself a richer man for life. The world Is a larger, more varied, more Interesting place for him. Ills life will be n broader, more liberal, more satisfying life than It would have been had he not spent a few of his best years In contact with the results of high thought and In the daily performance or invigorating Intellectual tasks. The ups and downs of the Stock Exchange cannot take away from him what he has thus stored up, nor could the best gifts of the money god have enabled him to purchase, after years spent In relentless pursuit of dollars, that which In the golden days of early manhood he had made his own In the quiet col lege halls.
