He Changed tha Day.
The story is told of the late "Kg Iron"
Kelley that on one occasion a young
woman, the daughter of an old Pennsyl
vanian, who had been one of Kelley's
political lieutenants, applied to him for
a position, which he promised to secure
for her the next day. On the following
morning, when the young woman called
on the judge, he had forgotten all about
her case, but upon being reminded, apol
ogized profusely and told her to "call
tomorrow." The judge kept this up for
nearly a month, when the young woman
lost her patience. On the occasion of
her Inst visit the judge, who was very
absentminded, did not catsti her name
as the servant announced hei presence
in the parlor and, walking hurriedly into
the room, shook hands with her and be
gan the old formula.
"My dear young lady, 1 am very busy
today; you will really have to call to
morrow. "But, judge," she protested,
"that is what you have told me for a
month. 1 have come almost every day,
and you have invariably told me to call
tomorrow." "1 beg your pardon, I am
sure," said the judge with great suavity.
"Call day after tomorrow." San Fran

The French National Printing- Work.
The French national printing works
date from the year 1640, and owe their
origin to Louis XIII, who established
them under the title lmprimerie royale.
The works were suppressed at the begin
ning of the revolution and reorganized
in the Year LL The state printing office
has had many homes. It is now in the
former abode of the princely house of
Rohan, in the Rue Vieille du Temple,
which still retains traces of its former

the ministries and other public bodies,
the presses' of the lmprimerie nationale
are at the service of all private individ
uals who require in their works types

collection at the Hotel- de Rohan is
unique and contains 200 varieties. It

For the pat few years the fishermen
in the northern part of Monterey bay
near Santa Cruz, have been greatly
annoyed by basking sharks. These
sharks, while in search of food, often
run into the nets of fishermen, and
in thrashing about and trying to
ef-cape from the meshes which enfold
them, tear the nets and injure them no
that the fishermen at times suffer the
loss of hundreds of dollars. Sometimes
a shark struggles about so much in the
watw ms to wrap the nets around it iu
such a manner that escape is impossible,
and the huge fish dies from the exhaus
tion produced by its wild efforts to get
free. To extricate thedead fish from
the nets it is sometimes necessary to tow
it ashore, and to recover part of the loss
sustained in the destruction of the nets
tbfe fishermen try out the liver of the
shark and obtain a quantity of cheap
but profitable oil.
AM OCULAR DEMONSTRATION.
A huge backing shark about thirty or
forty feet long became entangled in the
nets of soma fishermen off Soquel point,
about four miles from Santa Cruz. The
shark, still alive and enfolded in the
nets, was towed by the fishermen in
boats to the wharf at Ca pi tola. Its ar
rival created great excitement among
the visitors at that resort. The fact that
sharks, any sharks, were near the beach
drove hundreds of bathers from the wa
ter, and people began to make np their
minds to leave the place. Ho amount of
assurance on the part of the proprietors
of the hotel or the fishermen that bask
ing sharks were not man eaters, and that
many had been caught with no accident
happening, could entirely quiet the fears
of the visitors, and bathing was almost

i Vjwher Swanson, of the Capitola baths,
rtien determined to 'give an exhibition
with the shark which should convince
the most timid. A performance fol
lowed the like of which no man ever
participated in before. Swanson put on
a bathing suit and swam to the wharf
where the partially exhausted monster
lay, still partly wrapped in the torn and
tangled fishing nets. Slowly approach
ing the gasping yet enraged monster, a
whale in siz if not in species, Swanson
swam close to its side, and then clamb
ered .slowly on top, a moderately easy
task to accomplish, as the shark lay
almost entirely under water. Sitting
astride the huge fish like a baby on an
elephant, the bold swimmer shouted in
triumphant derision at the several hun
dred people on the wharf, who had
gathered to witness the strange per

What seemed before to the many spec

courtship of certain death, now became
a strangely comical sight. Swanson
mounted the fish, and the shark becom
ing accustomed to its queer burden,
merely rolled the man off each time he
got on its back, simply turning lazily in
the water and shaking himself. This
was repeated several times, and the
large crowd of people who came expect-,
ing to see the man killed and eaten de
parted laughing at the ludicrous ending
of the performance. Swanson became
the hero of the camp. Bathing was re

An Interesting Calculation.
An uptown man. having nothing else
to' do, thought he would try an experi
ment, so he turned the hands of a clock
in his room the full twenty-four hours of
a day, and found it took, with moderate
movement, one nunute of time to accom
plish that task. He then made a calcu
lation of how long it would take him to
turn off the full measure of a man's life,
which, according to the Scriptures, is
"three score years and ten," and found
that it wonld take seventeen and one
half days to turn the hands of the clock
to represent' seventy years. Philadel

A Wonderful Mineral Substance.
A new mineral substance, resembling
asphalt, has been discovered in Texas,
which promises to become very usef-d
to the scientific and industrial world. It
is unaffected by heat, acid or alkalies
and is said to be the most perfect in
sulator yet discovered. It may be used
for paint and is a perfect covering for
wood or iron, resisting all the influences
which destroy ordinary paints. As a
varnish it retains its character under all
conditions. It may be rolled into a tissue
and used for waterproof tents, clothing,
etc.; it makes leather impervious to
water and prevents iron and steel from
Professor Hamilton, of the Western
Electric company, finds that wires cov
ered with this substance offer sevenfold
the resistance offered by other wires,
and the results of its use in electrical
engineering are likely to lie very marked.
The material is found in unlimited quan
tities, from two to forty feet below the
surface, and if it proves as useful as it
promises will be a new source of wealth
to Texas. Boston Transcript
Why People Go to K a rope.
The high fares on American railroads
result in sending people to Europe. All
of New England and the Middle states
are full of people who have climbed Alps,
visited Rome, boulevards of Paris, been
all over the United Kingdom and seen
the midnight sun on the coast of Nor
way, and yet who have never been west
of Chicago. They hear of the beauties
of the Pacific coast, they read about the
glories of the Yosemite valley and they
want to go and see them, but when thoy
learn what it will ' cost they think they
cannot afford to go farther than Niagara
Falls. After that they go to Europe, and
so year by year the Atlantic passenger
lists have been swelling rapidly until
now they are something stupendous to
contemplate. Bangor (Me.) News.

Arrestvd for Selling Brandied Peaches.
A peculiar case of innocent violation
of the revenue laws has developed iu
Decatur. F. S. Pox bought a quantity
of imported brandied peaches. He took
them to Cerro Gordo and sold them at
