I confessed that 1 was willing to ho

the International elect by eating such
a dish. My host, however, wits pain

raw flsh they, of course, ato wnsnhl.
Now, I did not hnvo even a vuguo
notion of what this might be. but with
Unit rnw proposition before me it was
comfoiting to know that at least It
was to bo diluted with something. I
conjured up nn experience In taking
castor oil ambushed under sherry and
Bnrsapnrllla, which, while not a bever

hnvo been worse. I figured out also

close personal experience with hard

self before the leglster, Inscribed his
nnme in his well known copperplate
chlrography. The clerk had never
heard of hltu. but ho read the name
with a quick glance and said:
"Do you wish a room, Mr. Field 7"
"No," was thu answer.
"Then may 1 ask what you do
want';" coininued the eleik.
"I just wanted to arrive." replied
Field solemnly. "I had not arrived at
a good hotel for many mouths. I feel
better. Thank you," and he stalked
out with long, heavy strides.

A method't minister tells ll.e fol-'

the great Virginia evangelist, who In '
bis day was one of tho best, known
pulpit orators In the south:
"Sum It uel was a ery big man and
had u wide reputation for hyslcnl
strength, in his college dnjs he cuine
off the Held of combat, usually a clr
cutifHTlhtkl and secluded area of the
campus, curing the lam el of victory J

came u pieaeher stories of his phys
ical prowes were spread trv ami near.
"One day ho went to a village lo
hold a protracted meeting. The village
blacksmith; who was a very big man.
and who was reeonnled. opeeiitl'
among the tavern habitues, as a pugil
istic wonder, heard about the coming
of ltoxet, nud the villagers did not fail
to tell him all they had heard about
tho size of the parson's ami and the
length of his legs, and of the con
vincing way ho had of closing an ar
gument with his lists.
"All this nettled the smith consid
erably, sj when Hozel reached tho
town lie sought hlni out and nsked
him to light.
"Uozel. of course, said he did not
want to tight, but tho smith kept on
insisting, and finally Uozel became
angry and agreed to gratify tho fel
low. "They fought. Hocl literally wiped
up the ground with the big man. When
he had pounded him until the poor,
vanquished bully was gasping hard.
Uozel picked him up and thiew him
over n fence.
"The blacksmith had not said a woid
since the affray began up (o this point.
As he rolled over on the other side of
the fence, however, he called out:
" 'Say, parson, kindly throv my
horse over too. I'm going away.'
"Hut Uozel followed tho man to his
home, and had him sitting on a front
bench at tho meeting that same ulglil
singing louder ihan any ono else."

lu May. 1M18, the Republican na
tional convention enme along. Nast
went to Chit ago to be piesent.
It was settled beforehand that Gen
eral Jraiit was to he tho Republican
presidential candidate. The great sol
dier hud maintained a calm and noble
dignity through all the trying days of
conlllct between congress ami Andrew
Johnson and was now honored almost
as much for his diplomacy as for his
stucesss at it'ins. Indeed the mantle of
Bweet renown left by Lincoln would
seem to have been laid upon tiie shoul
ders of Cram, ami he wore It with be
coming grandeur and humility.
Realizing that the convention would
name (Jrant as Its choice. Nast pre
pared a little Mirprlio for the event,
lie painted upon a large curtain the
White House entrance, with two ped
estals, one on each side, bearing the
woicIn "Republican Nomluee, Chicago,
May :!(," and "Democratic Nominee,
New York. July ," respectively. On
the Republican pedestal was seated the
llgure of (irant. while Columbia stood
pointing to the empty place opposite,
llelow were the words, "Match Him!"
This curtain, with a blank curtain be
fore It, was suspended at the buck of
the convention stage. At the instnnt
when (ietieral tirant was announced as
the uuaiiliiioiis presidential choice of
ills party the blank curtain was lined,
and the great cartoon. "Match Mm!"
was suddenly exposed to full view.
The tiecuirence was so unexpected
that the throng was silent for a mo
ment, taking It In; then, -i enlisting that
it was a spectacular climax, the picto
rial epi'ehIon of a universal senti
ment, the assembled multitude gave
vent to an enthusiasm that turned the
gieat hull into a pandemonium of exul
tation. Albert Rlgelow Palno In Pear

The cMdoMrc force of lightning act
ing on duud wood Is not. as a rule, so
great iiiCallicil living lives are struck,
though Sir William Hauls shows that
"the inists of ships of the line, three
feet lu diameter and 110 fed long,
bound with hoops 'of iron h.ilf an Inch
thick and fhe Inches wide, the whole
.velgbing about eighteen tons, have
been lu many Instances torn asunder
and' the hoops of Iron scattered about
the decks." It will be found, as a rule,
that trees are struck by lightning far
more often than are buildings, even
If the trees ami buildings are close to
gether. This is partly because the
trees are higher.
lint there must piobably be some un
known reason not only for the fre
quency with which trees are struck,
but for the recurrence of such shocks
in the case of particular trees or trees
in the same locality. The commonest
form of Injury Is that the current
passes down the bail; of the tree, strip
ping off the band, wider or narrower,
from top to bottom. Sometimes on nn
oak two or three of these lightning
marks are seen, evidently caused nt
different times.
There must be something in the form
or situation or earth below the trees
whfcli endangers it. An instance is
quoted In Mr. Anderson's descriptive
book of the Church of St. Mary in
Genoa, which was frequently struck
by lightning, sometimes as often as
twice a year. It was not;ced that the
electric force alwajs followed the same
track. It was discovered later that
the walls were-clnmped with Iron, anil
that the lightning hail followed the
patch In which the metal offered the
greatest continuity, destroying the zone
If the gtound below the lice or build
ing Is hard and dry, the contact with
the earth, In which the lightning ox
pnuds its force and (" gpci'oCJ, is ditli
ciilt. and the destruction of the object
struck Is likely to result. This may
explain the frequency with which a
"blasted" tiee Is seen extending Its
dead arum on the HUiumli of some rocky
cliff or peak. The ground below it is
dry and does not easily lead away the
current into the earth. .
At the same time thundercloud un
doubtedly tend to discharge, or perhaps
It would be safer to say that the trims
mission fioni the cloud to the earth
more frequently takes place, near
pieces of water and -along the courses
of rivers than elsewhere.
In a park lu one of the eastern coun
ties of Kughiud there Is n inrge lake.
The park contains more trees struck by
lightning than tho whole of the rest of
the estate. Sonto miles away is a road
called locally the "Lightning road"
from the fieqtiency with which acci
dents have occurred there either to
tiecs. horses, cuttle or passengers. In
this park there icccntly occurred an In
stance of the explosive effect In cer
tain circumstances not perfectly known.
A very tall spruce, probably 100 feet
high, was "exploded" from top to bot
tom Into pjetes the size of the wood
used In making chairs. livery shred of
bark was snipped from them, and the
wood looked as if it had been shredded
up for tiring. A similar instance oc
curred some years ago when an oak In
r e grove be'ow the foot of tho White
lodge In Richmond park exploded tin
dor lightning shook. The bark flew olt
and simply disappeared In small patch
es, mid the rest of the tree was shat
tered into wl.lto fragments.
In these e scs it Is probable that the
current sets up such a tremendous heat
that all the sap In the tree Is converted
into superheated steam, which ex
plode. The greater the heat the more of
the cells In which moisture lies are ex
ploded and the greater the destruction
of the tissues of the tree. As there Is
most moisture between the bark and
tho trunk the first and greatest explo
sion takes place there, Instantly driv
ing the bark away Into space. Fre
quently the explosion only takes plnce
at that point.
As Sir Hiram Maxim pointed out
after the great explosion of Mont
Pelee, u very similar method Is now
used by the American manufacturers
of wood pulp. The logs of fir ore
placed In a strong chamber, and there
subjected to the action of superheated
steam until tho water lu every cell is
converted Into explosive gas. The
chamber Is then opened and the log
explodes, converting Itself Into wood
powder. London Spec tutor.

It Is never mentioned eRcept by a fool,

was that fool often enough. Mure than
once on being Introduced to Europeans
I would pass the usual compliments
and add, "What a charming clay It is!"
I got more than one withering look of
contempt for this species of crass for
getfulness. Why, the sun shines like
a ball of tire for eight months each
year, and there is practically no varia
tion in the weather. In my diary 1
read tho following entries: "Beautiful

"Another beautiful morning:" "Oil,
