"My first experience, " said W. It. Bates,
"was in the iSew i oi k leirihlature. I was a
boy then and I held a clerkship in the docu
ment room. Those were the days when
Daniel Drew was ono of the princes of the
state. One day Mr. Drew came into tho
room and said to me:
" 'Boy, can you writer
"I said I could.
" 'Well, I want you to fill out theso passes,'
and he threw down a handful of the paste
boards, which I filled out according to his
lit. whilo he slowly and laboriously put in
tho signature that made them good. When
the work was done, I said:
" 'Mr. Drew, you haven't got another of
thoso passes, have youf

" 'My secretary,' he continued, 'will bo

"I supjxjsed that Mr. Drew would forget
all about the matter, but he didn't. I got
"That reminds me of a little experience I
had with Mr. Drew," said Capt. Joe Nichol
son. "I had a cargo consigned to him with or
ders not to deliver it without taking Mr.
Drew's personal receipt When I went to
get tho paper he stepi! up to sign it and I
asked him to have some one identify him, as
I had never seen him before, and I did not
know how big a man ho was. He readily com
plied, and then I applied for i'00, as I had
authority to do, to buy supplies
" 'Certainly, certainly,' ho said. 'But first
get somo one to identify you.'
"In vain I suggested that he had just given
me a receipt as the captain of the vessel.
That wouldn't do, and you can believe it took
me some tirno to find a person who knew both
Daniel Drew and myself."
"Well, sir," began Mr. Bates, promptly
taking up the thread of the discourse, "Mr.
Drew camo into the document room ono day
and asked mo if there was a bright young lad
about. I called a sharp little chap. Mr.
Drew pulled from his pocket a big roll of
bills. He took a piece of tissue paper, such
as chewing tobacco was then rolled in. Then
ho wrapped the roll of bills neatly and twist
ed the ends until the package looked exactly
like a roll of fine cut. lie gave it to tho boy,
" 'You know Representative Blank! (Tho
boy said he did.) Well, you go up pretty
near him and just as the man who is now
speaking starts to sit down, you give this
fine cut to Representative Blank and tell him
Daniel Drew sent it.'

letter. Representative Blank pocketed tho
package and when the honorable member

CEMETERIES Or PANAMA.

The ceineU'iics of I'auatna, live in ell, aro
at Cocoa grove, and aro within one minus's
walk from ono another. They are all man
aged by one firm, Bves Obarrloly Chi.' One
of theso gentlemen went with mo through all
the graveyards and explained everything of
interest. 1 ho hvo cemeteries are the foreign,
the Chinese, tho Jewish, the old SjianLsh and
tho now Spanih. People may bo buried in
any of these according to desire. JTho man
agers of the cemeteries are the only ones in
tho business of manufacturing, selling and
letting cofiins; so they have a colIIn monop
oly just as tho Boston loo comxuiy has a
monopoly of ieo, or a New York house has a
monopoly ia hams.
There tho Fituama Canal company manu
facture whatever cofiins they need for their
employes, and transact a very brisk business
in this particular. In tho price of cofiins
there is a wide margin, tho sum lioing from
$7 to $100. If even J? 7 is higher than can bo
afforded, an old coflln more or less clean, in
good condition of repair, can le hired for
one-tenth tho sellina: prir rf - : . : i

appearance, bought for interment at $ 1, the
corpse being transferred at tho grave. This
is done to a largo extent. For instance, if a
poor man's friends want to give him a first
class send off for a little money they can hire
a $100 cofiln for one-tenth, i. e., $10, and buy
an old ono for interment at 1, making $11,
or hiring a $ 10 one, the whole cost is only .,
or he may buy a $1 one at once and not hire
auy other, or he may go still lower by not
using any coffin at all, in which ca-so ho is
sandwiched between two weather beaten
boards. It is said that ho sleeps as long and
perhaps as comfortably this way as in the
most superbly trimmed receptacle.
The graves are not sold, but rented for ono
or two years. If the retrular rental is not
paid the body is disinterred, tho bones thrown
m a common heap and the coffin used as a
second hand one. This is a very general re
sult of burial. The same system prevails, i
too, in the lioredas, where holes in masonry
are let for $12 for eighteen months. Friends
are usually neglectful after a period of mourn
ing, and a common heap of bones kept in a
hugh yard is enonnous. There, Celestials,
Caucasians and Africans are mixed up like
Buttercup's babies. This jumble of human
remains suggests much trouble when Gabriel
blows his trumpet. Who will be able to find
tho full complement of his own skeleton? The
agile one may mako up his own deficiency
from tho pick of the rest, but tho slow moving
individual will be apt to miss it. I fear there
will be many misfits to tho Celestial grave.
Who can tell whether ono is entitled to ad- I
mission if one is composed partly of some one I
else? Tho very thought is disagreeable and
perplexing. A Panama Letter.
The Skull of a Cobra.
Tho skull of a cobra lies before rn.s, From
the tip of the snout to tho back of tho skull
tho length Is ono and onetquarter inches.
Tho brain case is an ivory casket of great
solidity, but the jaw bones are loosely con
nected, and during life an capable, pf a good
deal of mot.iciL Tha two side" pieces of the
lower jaw are in the snake only united in
front by elastic tissue. Behind they do not
hinge on tho brain caso itself, but ou long
suping ones which jut out at tho back of the
skull, and these are capablo pf met ion out

Not only 010 there teeth on the lower jaw
and along tho outer edges of tho upper jaw
in tho python's skull, but there are also extra
rows of teeth implanted in the bones which
lie ono on each side of the palate, Th tet-tU
are not for crushing or tearing or chewing.

. Window Ventilation.
To obtain ventilation by a window, with
out a draft to strike a person, a direction to
tho following effect has been constantly re
peated by every hygienist and hygienic pub
lication for a numbor pf years past without a
suspicion of its fallacy, apparently, on j
part or any one 01 tne public s lr;injCtors.
"Fit a strip of board fclto tuo window casing
at tho bottom, Under the lower sash, so as to
raise ttio sash two or three inches, and the
thia spaces between the panes, where the
sashes lap over each other, will be open above
oml below, affording egress and ingress to
tho air in vertical directions, while tho board
excludes a horizontal draft that would strike
a person near the window."
The objection to this plan is that it is built
exactly wrong side up, in deflance of tho law
of gravitation, and will not work. It con
templates the exit of the warm and rarefied
air of tho room downward through tho colder
air between the sashes, and expects tho still
colder and heavier air outside to climb up
ward through the lighter inclosed air and
turablo over the top of the sash into tho
room. Tha amount of air exchanged be
tween outside and insido in this way will bo
hardly perceptible, unless a strong breeze
blows against the window.
Tho way to get ventilation through this
interspace, and a truly excellent way, is to
P'ph UP the lower sash to tho top of the cas
ing, and pull the upper sash down within a
few inches of the sill, stopping the gap at tho
bottom with tho board above mentioned. Tho
it will then find a downward entrance
