Eventually she was brought, to Grand

adrift in Grand river near the month. '
The current earned her out Into Lake

"Tie King Snake Story" is the head,
tng under which an Alabama contempo
rary prints the following: "We have been
Informed that about one month ago, in
Morgan connty, while a man and his
wife were sitting ont on the veranda
late in the afternoon, their attention
was attracted by the appearance of a
large king snake on the steps a few feet
avay. They were perfectly quiet, and
the snake crawled np the steps until it
reached the top; then it held its bead
op, as much as to say, 'Can I come inT"
Tbey remained perieiy still, and the
snake took it for granted that the silence
gave consent, so it proceeded to enter
the ball and crawled leisurely along
until it reached a bedroom where the
door stood open. It entered the door,
makirg its way nndT the bed.
"Bere the king snake pounced on a
large rattlesnake that bad coiled itself
arnnnd the bed springs. After a deadly
struggle with this monster rattler the
king snake went out in the yai'd and got
some kind of weed to kill the poisonous
bite. After taking the medicine the
king snake returned to the house and
continued th battle until the rattWiake
was dead. It was five feet in length anJ
bad nine rattles.""

Aa Iniprotad Shirt.
An idea as old as the bills is gaining
recognition now, aft'-r having failed
persistently. I speak of the idea of the
"coat shirt." This is a garment which
in most respects does not differ from the
ordinary dress shirt It has no clait'i to
novelty in apjiearance when it is worn.
The advantage is in the putting on. Toe
garment di s not go over the hea l, but
is adjusted in the same way as an or
dinal y coat. It is closed lx liind and en
tirely open in front. It is being put
upon the market this year, and its future
looks brighter than ever before. In
swelldom it is not unknown already, but
it has never pained wide popularity.

indulgent toward the erring; but that

enjoyment to her to drive to the Iale of

"Every traveler who stops at a Paris
lodging honw," laughed a woman the
other day, "has a candle story, and here
is mine: We were served with two
candles every morning, which we never
half uxed tip; these would lie taken out,
however, and fresh ones npjiear in their
places. Knowing that we were being
charged for every candle we determined
at least to enjoy added illumination, and

we had been forestalled, for in Its capa

candles, each set in its own grease on
the marble top table, gave us something
like light. During our stay we hid and

Too Kallf lous of China.
The three great religions of China art
Confucianism, Buddhism and Taouicm.
The bulk of the people are Buddhists
rather than Confucianints, and there are
millions of infidels. The tomb of Con
fucius is at Mecca, for many of the Chi
nese, and they make rHlgrittia?e to It.
Confacianism is more a philosophy than
a religion. It contains many of the bean-
ties which w suppose to be exclusively
the properties of Christisnity. The
golden rule in a negative form was an
nunciated by Confucius, aud as a system
of morality it is beautiful. The Taou.sts
have more etiierntitions than the Con
f ucianist. They began about the same
time as Confucius, their preacher being
