THE MILKY WAY.
ITS ORICIN AS ACCOUNTED FOR
IN VARIOUS LEGENDS.

The brilliant npjwarance nml prominent
color of tho Milky Way have not failed to
give rise to many curious names and to
many legends as to its origin.
According to the tireck fable, it was
product-d ly the milk of Ib-m (Juno).

to tho goddess who Ijtc.-une; k iintscretl
v hen she discovered thu tiillitiite infant
that tdio threw him from her breast, and
thu milk Hew across the bky, forming the
galaxy. Ilyginus Kays thu Latin legend
substituted Ops, 8jue of Saturn, for
Juno, and the occasion was the' presenta
tion of a Mono to her for the true child.
A .Sicilian legend Hays the milk was from
the Madonna's breast, lost while hhe
searched for Je.-us.
A curious class of legends accounts for
the creation of the bright band of f.tars
ncross the heaven. One of these, from
Wnllaehin, rt-1 ite.i that Venus purloins! a
Blie.-if of straw one n'ght from St. 1 'dor's
IiiilN, and i.i her hasty 11 if.; lit toward hex
coh-sti.il abode scattered it across the frky,
wlicrn wait inv on cloudless nights.
A Dalmatian tradition ascribes the loss of
the straw to St. JVtor himself, and calls
the galaxy "the Straw of St. 1'eJor." Ac
cording to a Crotiau legend, it was caused
ly a man who. having stolon a sheaf ol
traw from his foster father, was hasten
ing away with his burden, when tin; bun
dle broke and the btruw scattered about.
To rec.-dl for ever the theft, (Jod placed

Her via- ami Albania is "Godfather's
Straw." Similar traditions must have
given rise to names le-stowed upon it in
other countries. It is known as the

Hebrew, t'o'-tic and Klhiopian; as the
Mlondof tho Straw" in Arab, llabyleand
Fyno, and as the "Scattering of tho

and its We tphaiian titles, the "Jtoad to

other legends to account for its appear

until it nus consumed. God gathered to

celestial appearances the Milky Way h

meteorological phenomena. In West
pl::il:a it is called the "Weather Stripe,''
-Weather Street" and "Weather Tree,"
tnd ii aJ-o given the name of "Wind
Tree." A Welsh name for it was "Load
vf the Wind," and in Pioardy It ii railed
Foot of the Wind." Tahitians call tho
bright band "Kiyin Cloud" and "Solid
Cloud." Jt is "Hand of the Aurora" in
M ivgar hinds, and the "Evening Kay" iu
"Westphalia. In the latter country thd
galaxy is said to be in the middle of tho

BRIGANDS OF CUBA.
COLD BANDITS THAT INFEST THE
QUEEN OF THE ANTILLES.
A M ranCe ftte of Tliins Within a Xnjr'
Journey of the United State Half Wild
JVaaaut and Town Hough Taking to
Tales of brigandage in Cuba during the
past few years have reached New York
from time to time, but the true situation
is imt known save to those who live on the
island itself, and it has become so familiar
to these im to have little novelty. It Is
largely the result of thu present nliaosl
bankrupt condition of the once proud and
wealthy Que'cn of tho Antilles. Poverty
is now almost universal save among the
planters and merchants in the cities, and,
unable to obtain a livelihood save by the
precarious and scarcely remunerative oc
cupations of cock fighting , and lottery
ticket selling, which appear to the tourist
to be the main occupations of the Cubans,
many of the half wild peasants of the in
terior and roughs of the towns have taken
to brigandage. They are most numerous
in the central part of the island, between
Matanzas on the north and Cienfuegos on
the south, making their lairs in the woods
and hills of the center of the island and
operating on the roads every place where
there is any chance of wealthy persons
The eastern end of the Island has been
singularly free from bandits, and travel
through it3 still virgin forests and lofty
volcanic mountains is comparatively safe.
The Guardia Civile, as the Spanish
soldiery is called, make periodical incur
sions from Matanzas and other citie3
against the bandits, but as a rulo these
raids have little result. It is more than
hinted that there is an understanding be
tween the soldiers and the bandits. The
Spanish government is always behind
hand in its payment of its Cuban soldiers'
wages, and there is a geueral impression
that the soldiers make up for deferred or
unpaid wages by a share in the ransom
paid by some wealthy planter for his re
lease from captivity. Not that the
Guardia Civile are always unfaithful!
A HKE.YUED HAN1MT CHIEF.
"Matagas," said our informant, "is
now the bandit chief most feared. lie is
a mulatto and rules his followers abso
lutely. He changes his location con
stantly and has been rather quiet of late,
but we may hear of him at any time. He
has placed a price of !?r0,0U0 on the per
sons f)f the Messrs. Stewart, who own tho
well known sugar plantation, 'La Caro
lina,' near this city, and these gentlemen
have been obliged to use much caution iu
guing to and from their plantation on
their vUIts to the city."
"Till us about Seuor Casanova," we
"Weil, Senor Casanova was driving
through the back country ono afternoon
in a volante, over a rough and lonely
road, when the bandits suddenly appeared
from the chapparal. They surrounded'
the volante so quickly that he could do
nothing but surrender (it once. They
ordered him to mount a mule, and at hi:i
protestations ttiat he win sulToring from
a bladder complaint and that it would
kill him to ride they only laughed. They
carried him e!I to a little hut in the mou-i-tnin
and kept him there a week. The old
gentleman, fiom the complaint ub;)Vt;
described, could only subsist on milk, and
as the band-its could not furnish this he
nearly died before he was ransomed."
"How did they ransom him?"
"The bandits had a note conveyed
secretly to iih friends tlemanding
8,000 for his ransom within a week.
This his friends raised and sent by a
trusted messenger to a place agreed upon.
Senor GasanoTa was produced, the money
paid over and tho bandit who received ft
disappeared as suddenly as if the earth
had swallowed him, Casanova says that
ho was not treated badly during his short
captivity, but imagine his state of mind
and suspense during the days he wa3 a
"Has no concerted action been taken to
apprehend these bandits throughout the
"No. It is a sort of local option w ith
different places whether they can tlrive
them away or not. We're all growing so
poor, however, that unless your good and
great Uncle Sam will pity and annex us
the bandits will soon suppress themselves
for want of prey.
READ THEM A LECTCIJE.
"One place, however, has rid" itself of
the pest, 'and hi this way. You know if
is very rarely that a Cuban becomes a'u
officer in the Spanish army. The position
is not considered worthy of ambition by a
Cuban, and will not be as long as the two
peoples dislike each other as they elo now.
lJut in this place a son of a well known
Cuban fctinily "..as, an officer in the Guard i
Civile. He pursued and caught a body of
bandits, Cubans like himself. Then he
read them a lecture in this wise:
" 4You know me and 5011 know I under
stand your position. I sympathize with
your poverty and know the wretched gov
ernment lias made your calling possible,
but I to not sympathize with your law;
lessncss. I'll release you now only on
your solemn oath that you'll leave this
district at once. If I hear of any of you
here again I'll show you no mercy.' He
meant what he said, and that district was
troubled no more.;'
"How are these bandits armed?1'
"Very pooi'ly as a rule, They have old
fashioned muskets and now r.nd then ft
Title. It Is not their weapons, but their
familiarity with the country and its hid
ing places and the fact that they have
relatives and friends and sympathizers in
most of the villages, and even in the
cities, that make them at all formidable
w ith the wretched soldiery we have. A
squail pf United States pavalry could
probably rid tho island of them' in two
"Does not their presence make it unsafe
for Americans to visit Cuba?"
"Not in the least. These bandits do
not interfere with the railroad trains, on
which a squad of soldiers always travel,
more as a matter of form than anything
else, and the bandits are not to be feared
on the "beaten lines cf travel. Besides,
they do not lie in wait for a tourist. They
generally learn or know all about their
man, his wealth aud whether Lis friends
will or will i:ot be likely to ransom him,
before they prepare to capture him. They
would not be likely to attack a traveler
simply on the chance of securing a roll of
bills and a watch. They have also,
straug-3 to say, a high regard for Ameri
cans. Like all Cubans, they look to the
United States ns a possible protector and
ruler some day, and, perhaps, too, they've
heard of six shooters and Yankee pluck.
An American consular agent was caught
by bandits some time ago, and as soon as
he announced his position they released
him immediately and apologized for what
they said was a mistake." Cuba Cor.

A Itc-rolitl -1 In Clock Making.
A patent for a new clock, or chronom
eter, has just boon granted that is at
tracting considerable attention here. It
is the inventiciiof two Maryland uen,
M'ho claim it can bo made to run, if
necessary, for ye-ars after once wound
up. Other special feature's of this time
piece aro that it is alolutely noiseless
when in ojioration, and docs away en
tirely with the pendulum and balance
wheel now used in clocks and watches.
The running gear, including Uth the
Btnking aud time mechanism, consists of
but six whe'els and it requires but ono
spring to propel both of these attachments.
Vy the use of a patent self winding spring,
connected to two of the wheels, the in
ventors utilize the power waited by fric
tien in other timepieces, thus enabling
the clock to run a much greater length
of time with tho same motive piwcr, or
by once winding it up. The inventors
threaten to work a revolution iu clock
making, by the introduction of apeifeet
timepiece, which, they say, because ef
its simplicity, can bo manufacturer! at
much less cost than many excellent low
priceel timepieces manufactured in this
country to-day. Washington Critic.
An Invention Worth millions.
It is wonderful how the discovery of
what is considered a trifling matter will
bring wealth to tho inventor. Take, for
illustration, the perforated substance used
for l)ottoniing chairs and tor other pur
poses. Its inventor is now a millionaire
and is realizing a princely revenue from
it yearly. George Ycr-fron. the ?-- '
I refer to, was a poor Yunkco caueseater
in Vermont. He first distinguished him
self by inventing a machine for weaving
cane, but he made no money out of it,
as some ono stole hLs idea and had the
process patented. After a number of
ye-ars' experimenting Yeaton at last hit
upon this invention, which consists of a
number of thin layers of boards of differ
ent elegrces of hardness, glued together
to give pliability. Yeaton went through
a nunik'r of bitterly contested lawsuits
!efore he got his invention patented. Ho
was wiso in not paying others to manu
facture his device. He formed a com
pany, and to-day he has a plant valued
at 000,000. Kansas City Star.
The Triumph of I5ral:ni;;h.
Mr. lk-adlnugh'a parliamentary oaths
Liil ha3 the advantage of being extremely
short. It consists of only two clauses;
tho debatable part of it, indeed, of only
one. It enacts that every person, upon
objecting to being cworn, shall be jKr
mitted to make his solemn affirmation
instead of taking an oath in all places
where r.n oath is or shall bo requireel by
law. Tho affirmation is to be of the same
force and effect as tho oath, and tho pen
alties for a fal.30 allim.ation shall be the
penalties of perjury.
Thus, in form, tho provision is almost
identical with tho cct for enabling Quak
ers to affirm; it emly extends that ability
to all persons, whether Ijelonging to one
religious denomination or not. Jt applies
to jurors and wiliiesses, and also to ail
other persona who may be i.ow called 011
to ta'je an oath; to thoso who have to
take the. oath ef allegiance, anel even, we
t.uppcf.0, to the sovereign himself. Lou
