Peculiarities of Taste.
The South Sea Islanders gazes with
disgust upon an American eating rare
roast beef, but he will eat a fish raw,
especially if he is, an Hawaiian, with
great relish. He also finds a dozen or
more relatives of the oyster on th
reef at low tide and thinks them highly
appetizing. There is tha devil fish, for
instance. The squid is regarded aa
being a delicacy.

Appeal of the Afflicted.
It was Walter's first visit to church,
and he tried hard to remember all the
varied Instructions he had received,
such as not whispering, keeping his
head bowed during the prayer, etc.
But during the main petition of the
service nature won a complete battle
over memory and decorum. "Mother,"
shrilled the weary youngster, "when
will it be time for me to straighten
my neck? It's like to break if I dont
do it soon!"
Why the Passengers Kicked.
A motor-bus while traveling in Bow
road recently was struck in the rear
by a tram car, and the impact forced
it on to another bus, which was stationary-.
The latter mounted the
pavement and smashed some rail
ings. Passengers in each bus com
plained of cuts from broken glass.

Tramp Not Wholly Lost.
A tramp stealing a ride on a train
jumped off as it passed a burning ho
tel, aroused the sleeping lodgers and,
his rescue work, done, regained his
place on the bumpers before the train
left the yards. A pretty full volume
of comment on American human na
ture is contained in the brief report of
Banana a Curiosity.
A peculiar fact about the banana Is
that no insect will attack it, and an
other Is that it is absolutely immune
from the diseases that fruits are sub
ject to. It is one of the curiosities ot
the vegetable kingdom.

MUCH LIKE A CONSTELLATION
Fighting Prisoner Had Only Asked to
Be Shown One Star, But He ,
He had been celebrating, not wisely,
but too well, and getting obstreperous
and noisy and looking for a fight he
was tackled by a policeman who in
plain clothes was on his way home.
The drunken one showed fight and
was indignant that an apparently pri
vate citizen should try to arrest him.
"Show me your star!" he demanded.
Don't believe ' you're a cop at all.
Won't go with you till I see your star,"
and he aimed a maudlin blow at the
There was a scuffle and a fight,
short-lived but strenuous, and the
drunken man was landed in the police
station, where he stayed all night. In
vthe morning it was a disheveled and
torn wreck that appeared before the
magistrate and who listened to the po
liceman relate the trouble he had in
getting him to the station house.
"He wanted to fight me all the way
to the station, your honor. " He kept
pulling back and trying to trip me and
yelling, 'Show me your star! . I don't
go unless you show- me your star.' "
"And," asked the magistrate gently,
"did you show him your star?"
"Your honor," interrupted the pris
oner, "he clouted me on the head and
I saw the star I saw several of them,
enough to go around the entire force."

WORSE THAN JOB'S TROUBLES
Surely Mark Twain, in Flight of Imag
ination, Had Described Worst Com
: bination of Ills.
John McLaughlin, who. has started a
new magazine known as "Catholio
Youth," has had trouble enough to dis
courage a less cheerful person, since
he abandoned daily newspaper work.
McLaughlin started to work on his
first issue three weeks ago, and every
thing went along swimmingly until a
week ago when he woke up in the mid
dle of the night with severe pains in
"Rheumatism, and you'll be lucky it
you're out in a month," said the doc
tor next morning.
. All last week McLaughlin lay in bed
while the "big magazine," as he calls
it, awaited his coming. Yesterday Mc
Laughlin appeared at his office and
"dug into" his accumulated work with
"I Y ' only one consolation," he said
at the -ress club, yesterday. "One ol
the magazines has a story of Mark
Twain this month. It seems a friend
of Twain was suffering from a tooth
ache and an earache at th6 same time.
" "Can you imagine a worse com
bination than that, earache and tooth
ache?' asked the friend.
"'I can,' said Twain. "There are

Working in the Dark.
Secretary MacVeagh, at a dinner In
Washington, was urging the need of
scientific financial laws.
' "But let us make these laws scien
tifically," he said. "V" ! must let in the
light We must work in the light. If
we work in the dark, you know, we
will go wrong like young Cornelius
"Cornelius Husk was called one win
ter "morning before dawn, and told to
go and harness the mule to the dear
born. "The lad was too lazy to light a lan
tern, and in the dark he didn't notice
that one of the cows was in the stable
with the mule.
"As he tried to harness the cow his
father, impatient at the long delay,
shouted from the house:
" 'Corney! Corney! what ye doin'?'
" I can't get the collar over the
mule's head,' the boy replied. 'His
ears are frozen.' "
Great Plague of London.
Medical authorities agree that the
epidemic which prevailed in London
in 1665 was what we now caU bu
bonic plague. It is well known that
this "Black Death" was prevalent in
various parts of the world in ancient
times. : The outbreaks were peculiarly
violent then by reason of the condi
tions of poverty and the almost total
absence of sanitation. It was the an
cient medical writers who gave it the
name of the plague.
' The mortality in London in 16G5
was appalling. Thousands were swept
away by the dread malady, and there
was a great exodus from the stricken
city. Some of the medical authorities
thought it had been brought into Lon
don in bales of merchandise coming
from Holland, which originally came
from the Levant; others contended
that it was brought in by Dutch pris
oners of war.
Boy Has Right to Be Proud.
The proudest boy in France, today
Is Raymond Marmiesse, who is six
teen years old. He is at present a
patient in the Pasteur institute in
Paris, and has received a silver medal
with his name on it and a letter from
the minister of public instruction.
One Sunday afternoon a mad dog
raced through the streets of Cahors.
It had bitten several other dogs, a
horse, and two children. Marmiesse,
who was passing, threw himself head
long on the dog, and tried to strangle
it. People shouted to him that he
would "be bitten ; and he was bitten
terribly. His father begged him to
come away from the dog, but "Better
one than half a dosen more children
be bitten! "shouted the boy, and he
stuck to the dog till a man managed
to slip a noose over its head and
draw it tight.
