tho olive tree. After many years of
growth the different large branches
of tho trees separate gradually from
the trunk until they are quite divided

These then slowly move apart, and In
some Instances six or seven distinct

MasKi-cliusi -its. lie was famous j
llinu.",l.out I'lyn.outh county, k.i.vs a 1
contributor to ihe lleslon Herald, for 1
bis witty ret ;its and dry humor. i
Never hnvia:; taken a sea trip, Mr.
Cobb one day conceived the Idea of
making a voyage to New York. Ac
cordingly he xailed from Itosioii in u
The liisl day out a storm was en- '
countered ml Mr. Cobb became vio
lently .sick, but after several hours be :
mustered up courage ami strength to
look out upon tho troubled water. ,
As be looked from the side of the.
little ship up the trough of the sea, it
seemed very ftnootli to him. The cap
tain's cutting of Ihe waves was "sense- 1
less," ho told himself. !
Hut as this mad steering continued, '
the unhappy passenger finally crawled
out, on hands and knees, to where the
captain stood at the wheel, and rais
ing his voice ubovu the din of waves
and wind, shouted:

The Human Family.
The human family living on earth
today consists of about 1.4.r0,0')u,O0()
souls not fewer, probably more.
These are distributed literally all over
the earth's surface, there being no
considerable spot on the globe where
man has not found a foothold. In Asia,
the so-called "cradle of the human
race," there are now about 800,01)0,000
people, densely crowded, or an av
erage? of about 120 to every square
mile. In Kurope there are 320,000,000,
averaging 100 to the square mile, not
so crowded as Asia, but everywhere
dense, and In many places over-populated.
In Africa there are 210,000.000;
and In the Americas North, South
ami Central 110.000.000, these latter,
of course, relatively thinly scattered
over broad areas. On the islands,
large and small, there are probably
10,000,000 more. The extremes of the
blacks and the whites are as rive to
three, the remaining 700,000,000 Inter
mediate, brown, yellow and tawny In
Daylight and Twilight.
A sad nature sheds forth twilight. A
merry and mirthful natu-o brings day
light. A suspicious nature Insensibly
Imparts Its chill to every generous
soul within its reach. A hold and
frank nature overcomes meanness In
men. Firmness makes them fine.
Taste directs, stimulates and develops
taste. Henry Ward Heucher.

SI. Rava, Italian minister of public

ulars of an archaeological discovery at

been going on sine? last June. Sev
eral statues, fragments of columns
and bronze objects have been un

of triangular sha;M!, have been dis
covered. The apex Is turned towards
the east. It la built of bricks, covered
with some sort of concrete. In the
middle of tho altar a well Is sunk. It
was covered with tiles. It was opened
In Ihe presence of Sig. Rava and Prof.
Bernabel, and was found to contain
a bronze statue of the god Kronos,
with a serpent wound round the body,
while around were eggs in an excel

PUMP AIR INTO DEAD WHALE.
Hunter's Prize Made Sufficiently Buoy
ant to Float, Marked with Buoy
and Set Adrift.
Then began the work of bringing
the whale to the surface and blowing
It up so that It would float. Taking a
hitch about a convenient post, the
rope was slacked and run through a
pulley block at the mast head to re
lieve the strain of raising the great
body. The winch was set In motion
and for 15 minutes nothing was heard
save the monotonous grind as fathom
after fathom of line was wound in.
When the body was brought alongside
the lobes of the flukes were cut off
and lifted to the deck. Then a long
coll of small rubber hose, one end of
which was attached to a pump and
tho other to a hollow, spear-polnted
tube of steel with perforations along
Its entire length, was brought Into
play. Tho spear was Jabbed well down
Into Ihe whale's side, tho air pump
started and the body slowly filled Wtn
air. When Inflated sufficiently to keep
It afloat the tube was withdrawn the
Incision plugged with oakum and the
chains cast off. A buoy with a flag
was then attached to the carcass and
tho whole set adrift to be picked up at
the end of the day's huntlng.-ropular
