FALL RIVER HOLDS RECORD.
Has Greatest Proportion of Foreign
Born In the Country.
In the city of New York there are
only 737.477 white persous born of ua-
live pareuts, or but ZA per cent ot
the population of the t Ity. This state
ment moans that out of every luo per
sons living within the municipal boun
daries of New York 78 are either for
elgners or the children of foreign born
parents, or colored people.
New York, however. Is not the first,
but the second city of the country ha
luj the largest foreign born popula
tion. Fall Uiver Is first In that re
spect. Official figures show that there are
in New York city more males under
21 years of Slavonic paientage thau
of any other people, and the number
of Slavonic men more than 21 years of
ago exceeds that of any other na
tionality except Germans and Irish.
This Is a baby, it Is a girl bay.
How very bad tempered! How red
her eves What horrid contortions
sho makes with her face. See how
Riivaeelv she kicks. How like a de
mon she yells!
Yet In a few short years some man
will be half cra.y with wild suspense,
worshipping tho very air this being
breathes, devoutly kneeling at her
feet, and frantically begging for one
word, one pressure of the hand, even
a '.ook, which will give him hope.
Capt. Owen Wheeler, a British of
fleer, writes of service in India: "I
once had to pass a number of ele
phants over a river across which
there had been constructed a strong
bridge of boats quite capable of bear
ing the biggest elephant. Very near
ly tho biggest In Asia happened to bo
then In my charge and this particular
monster tested tho bridge and went
over without any rms, ami so tuu
forty-five others out of forty-eight.
Ilut three would not tako on the
bridge at any price and had to be
swum over, ono of them getting so
angry at being asked to walk where
bigger elephants than he had gono
over quite huppliy that he rushed vio
lently Into the. water and tried to
owu his mahout."

The telephone girl and the bill clerk,
to whom she had promised her heart
and hand, were sitting in front of the

to come when they would be one.
From one detail to another the talk
finally drifted to the subject of lighting
the fires In tho morning. On this point
the young man was decided. He sta

girl thrust out the finger enalrcled by

A Simple DeluBlon.
An Irishman, newly arrived In the
United StateH, was ono day regaling
some friends with nn account of the
glories of a piny ho had witnessed the
night before. "How much did all that

And as It Turned Out He Had Chosen
A young man, at the risk of his llfo,
oved beautiful young girl from
drowning. Her grateful father seized
tho rescuer of his daughter by tho
hand and, with a voice tremulous
with emotion, said: "Noble youth, lo
you I am Indebted for everything that
mnkes llfo dear to mo. Which re
ward will you tnke $100,000 or the

"Ill take tho daughter," replied tho
heroic rescuer, thinking thereby to
pet both the girl and the money.

tho grateful father. "I could not havo

Calabash Tree of Weit Indie.
