SHOCKING FEPORT OF DEATHS

Havana. (Special.) The question Is
which admlnistrtion must meet and
which Is to bear the original expense
of improving the sanitary conditions ol
Havana. Colonel Warlng's report pre
sents only two- Integral propositions re
garding systems to be adopted and
methods to be pursued. He leaves th
administration to choose between th
two systems presented by him and ther
decide whether to order the work t
proceed at once or to take chances or

THE BOTTOMLESS JUG.
I saw it hanging P In the kitchen
of a thrifty, health sturdy farmer in
Oxford county. Mfne a bottomless
Jug! The hest si that the curious
thing was tak!ngr.y eye, and smiled
"You are wondflr.g what that Jug is
hanging up thetlfcr with its bottom
knocked out." fcf said. "My wife, per
haps, can tell 0 the story better than
I can; but she i bashful and I ain't, so
I'll tell it." J
"My fathe'as you are probably
aware, owne this farm before me. He
lived to a gd old age, worked hard all
his life, neer squandered money, was
a cautlourtrader and a good calcula
tor; and, a men were accounted in his
day and eneratlon, he was a temperate
man. " was the youngest boy; and
when ie old man was ready to go
and h knew it the others agreed that
elncel had stayed at home and taken
careof the old folks, the farm should
be line and to me it was willed. I had
ben married then three years.
Well, father died mother had gone
iree years before and left the farm to
ne, with a mortgage on it for two
thousand dollars. I'd never thought
of it before. - I said to Mollie, my wife:
" 'Mollie, look here. Here father's
had this farm in its first strength of
soil, with its magnificent timber and
his six sons, as tl.ey grew up, equal to
so many men to help him; and he work
ed hard, worked early and late, and
yet look at it! A mortgage of two thou
sand dollars. What can I do?
"And I went to that Jug it had a
bottom In It then end tock a good stiff
drink of old Medford rum from it.
"I noticed a curious loko on the face
of my wife Just then, and I asked her
what she thought of it, for I supposed
she was thinking of what I'd been talk
ing about. And so she was, for she
"'Charles, I've thought of this a
great deal, and I've thought of a way
in which I believe I can clear this
mortgage off before five years are end
ed.' "Says I: "Mollie, tell me how you'll
"She thought for a while, and then
said, with a funny twinkling in her eye
" 'Charlie, you must promise me this,
and promise me sdemnly and sacred
ly: Promise me that you will never
bring home for the purpose of drink
ing for a beverage, at any time, any
more spirits than you can bring in that
old Jug the Jug your father has used
ever since I knew him, and which you
have used since he was done with It."
"Well. I knew father used, once In
a while, especially in Haying time, and
in winter when we were at work In the
woods, to get an old gallon Jug filled;
so I thought she meant that I should
never buy more than two quarts at a
time. 1 thought it ever, and after a
little while told her that I would agree
"'Now mind, said she, you are nev
er to bring home any more spirits than
you can bring In that identical Jug.'
And I gave her the promise.
"And before I went to bed that night
I took the last pull at that Jug. As I
was turning out for a sort of night cap.
Mollie looked up, and says she: 'Char
lie, have you got a drop left?"
"There was Just about a drop left.
We'd have to get it filled on the mor
row. Then she said, if I had no objec
tion, she would drink that last drop
with me. I shall never forget how she
said It 'that last drop!' However. I tip
ped the old Jug bottom up. and got
about a great spoonful, and Mollie said
that was enough. She took the tumbler
and poured a few drops of hot water
Into it and a bit of sugar, and then
she tinkled her glass against mine. Just
as she had seen us boys do when we'd
been drinking to good luck, and says
she: 'Here's to the old brown Jug!'
"Sakes allvel I thought to myself
that poor Mollie had been drinking
more of the rum than was good for
her, and I tell you it kind o cut me to
the heart. I forgot all about how many
times she'd seen me when my tongue
was thicker than it ought to be. and
my legs not so steady as good legs
ought to be: hut I said nothing. I
drank the sentiment 'the old brown
Jug' and let It go.
"Well. I went out after that and did
my chores and then went to bed; and
the last thing I said before leaving the
kitchen this very room where we now
" 'We'll have the old brown Jug filled
"And I went off to bed. And I have
remembered ever since that I went
to bed that night, as I had done hun
dreds of times before, with a buzzing
in my head that a healthy man ought
not to have. I didn't think of it then
nor had I ever thought of it before, but
I've thought of It a good many times
and have thought of it with wonder
"Well, I got up the next morning and
did my work at the barn, then came in
and ate my breakfast.but not with such
an appetite as a farmer ought to have,
and I could not think then that my ap
petite had begun to fall. However, I
ate my breakfast and then went out
and hitched up the old mare; for, to
tell the plain truth. I was feeling in the
need of a glass of spirits, and I hadn't a
drop in the house. I was in a hurry to
get to the village. I hitched up and
came in for the Jug.v I went for It in
the old cupboard, and took it out, and
"Did you ever break through the thin
ice on a snapping cold day. and find
yourself in an Instant over your head In
freezing water? Because, that is the
way I felt at that mcment. The Jug

hammer, and, with the skill that might
have done credit to a - master work
man, she had clipped the bottom clean

"And I have kept it. In less than five
years, as Mollie had said, the mortgage
was cleared off; my appetite came back

Ol ANT PHILIPINE BEES.
These Honeymakers May Be Intro
duced Into the United States.
There was one race inhabiting the
Philippines which will be a welcome ad
dition to American citizenship and will
receive every facility and inducement
to emigrate to the United States and
engage in the skilled labor in which it
has no superior. This is the giant East
Indian honey bee, whose immense ca
pacity for making honey and wax has
interested the department of agricul
ture in the consideration of an early
effort to Introduce it into the United
Shates. To science this bee is known as
Apis dorsata. It is common throughout
the tropical regions of the east, and in
the Philippine Islands the very largest
variety of tt;e species is found. It is
nearly one-haTf larger- than the Amer
ican native honey bee and build combs
heavy with wax and honey, five or six
times as large as those found In Amer
ican orchards and forests.
The question of acclimatizing these
lnhabltanes of the Philippines In the
colder latitudes of America is not dis
couraging. The giant bees are found in
the mountain regions all through India
and been seen busily at work at alti
tudes of 5.000 feet. In the Philippine
islands their colonies are most numer
ous in the mountains, as the unceasing
quest of the natives for their honey
combs has driven them from the un
protected flat lands of the coast to the
less thickly inhabited and more heav
ily wooded mountain regions. The Fil
ipinos find their daily bread a rather
easy proposition, but they are very fond
of honey on the staff of life. There Is
also a large demand for wax for use
The big bees build their hives on tall
forest trees or on the overhanging
ledges of cliffs. "When undisturbed
branch swarms build near the parent
colony, so that In a few years an im

In the forest. The bees build a comb
five or six feet long, four fet wide
and from seven-eighths to one and one
half inches in thickness. The largest
combs of the American honey bees are
not more than one-fifth of these dimen
sions. In appearance the giant Is a
smoky, glittering iridescent black wasp
like figure, with orange bands encir

ports that this bee is most ferocious
and on account of his great size ex
tremely dangerous, but Professor F.
Benton of the department of agricul
ture has seen and handled them in
their Jungle haunts, and he tells a dif
ferent story. They are such busy and
persevering workers, according to Prof.
Benton's account, that they have lost
dexterity with their stinging apparatus,
and although they alight full of wrath
and with evil Intent upon human hand
