Tho tlnie-honoird custom of shower
ing rlco upon tho depaitiug bride, and
gioom has its painful side. Many young
couples have begun their honeymoon
in actual physical pain, thanks to the
stony grains which have stung their
eyes ami ears and found their way
into their clothes and down their necks.
Worse disasters than this aro on rec
ord. Horses have taken fright at tho
reckless showeilug of these grains and
this, In some cases, has led to the over
turning of the carriage and severe In
jury of Its occupants. Attempts have
occasionally been made to mend this
state of affairs hut until lately nothing
has taken the place of rice. The piob
1cm Is at last solved, however. At u
recent double wedding confetti was
used as a substitute for the offending
rice. For the benefit of such readers
as uic unacquainted with confetti I may
describe them as tiny paper wafers,
principally gold and silver, with u few
coloicd ones Intermixed by way of ad
ding t" the effect. The pi ogress of each
brldo down the staircase to the cai
rlago on this particular occasion was
made in a shower of gold and silver-
surely quite as good an omen for her
future prosperity as could possibly lie
afforded by tho prosaic grains of rice.
Tho effect of the myriads of sparkling
confetti was absolutely charming and
fairyllko as they Muttered to the
ground, tho sun catching them as they
fell. Certainly they clung about the
dresses of tho newly married couples,
but they did no harm and were joon
shaken off. In tho house, as they fell

The British admiralty has taken an
Important step in directing that tho
new fleet cruiser Gladiator, building at
Poitsmouth, be fitted for the consump
tion of liquid fuel. Success has attend
ed the experimental use of various
forms of liquid fuel In several navies,
notably In the Italian, Russian and
German services. Tho Itallnns have
put Into all their new ships petroleum
burners on a system Invented by nn
Italian engineer named Cunibertl,
whose system has ulr-o been ndopted by
the German government with satisfac
tory results, the fuel used being not
crude petroleum, but petroleum residu
um, the use of which. In connection
with Cunlbertl's burners, Is said to be
most economical, while It can bo burnt
without producing smoke, an obvious
advantage from a naval point of view.
It Is curious that the use of liquid fuel
has come so s lowly to the front, consid
ering that experiments with CuniberU'ts
apparatus were carried out nt Spezzlu
in 189:!, and that M. Weyl, tho well
known French naval expert and edi
tor of Le Yacht, was enthusiastic In Its
favor four years ago. It Is anticipated
that before long the use of some form
of petroleum fuel will be general
throughout the navy, as It has the en
ormous advantage of Increasing the ra
dius of action of a war vessel by some
GO or 70 per cent, and further, will
probably go some way towards solving
the dllllcult problem of replenishing

Mountain 'I rial.
TYPICAL trial In
regions of Ken
tucky has just been
concluded at Hay
den, In Leslie coun
ty. A boy named
Abe Pace killed his
uncle, and he and
his father wero In
dicted, Pace fled to
the mount a. I n s,
where his father and all his relatives
lived. After some difficulty, both Abe
and his father were captured.
The trial of tho boy began week he
fore last, nnil all the mountain people
descended Into Hnyden, nrmed to the
teeth, to Intimidate witnesses und get
the boy clear. Judge Floyd Hall, who
Is a very brave man, Issued an order
that none but witnesses should be ad
mitted to the court room, and that the
sheriff should search them nt the door
and check till weapons.
So tho trial progressed poacenbly
enough. The sheriff sat behind a huge
pile of weapons nt the door und the
witnesses glowered helplessly at one
another. The boy was convicted and
was sentenced to Imprisonment for life.
As It was feared that the further con
tinuance of the strain would result in
bloodshed, the muttering of the friends
and enemies of the Paces growing
louder every day, the trial of the elder
Pace was postponed and he was released
on $4,000 bond.
Pace had to get back to his house in
the mountains. The family and friends
of the man his son murdered bad sworn
to take his life. So all the way home
he would piactlcully have to run the
gauntlet. To protect himself he took
with him a six months' old baby. His
plan was to carry the child and, If he

was attacked, to hold It In front of him.
He knew that his enemies would not
kill the baby, even to kill him. This
was the only thing that saved his llf.
The baby proved to he a complete pro
tection. Once back in his mountain
fastnesses he was safe. Hut, of course,

'Lucky' Baldwin and a California cat

nobody was left In but Baldwin and
the cattleman. They agieed to waive
the limit, and the cattleman set the
pace. He wanted to bet S1O.U00. Bald

was agreeable, nnd tho cattle were as

In tho same predicament as his friend.
He didn't have quite that much to lose.

He .Shot Throe llrer In Very Short
On the level lowlands of the Molun
kus, a short distance below Sherman
Mills, Aroostook county, on u farm as
level and as smooth as any western
prairie, resides Mr. Joseph T. I.eavltt,
a gentleman upward of GO years of age,
well and favorably known In that sec
tion ami also In western Penobscot and
East Somerset, where he formerly re
sided, says the Lewlston (Me.) Jour
nal. He Is not a hunter bv tiade or
profession, his two principal occupa
tions through life having been farming
and blacksmlthlng, still he has n skill
at hunting, trapping and fishing that
few can equal.
Several years ago Mr. Lravltt left
his house with his repeating rifle in
pursuit of deer. A light snow had re
cently fallen and ho soon struck the
fresh trail of deer Hint he knew must
be near him. Being on the windward
side of the deer and fearing that they
would scent him nnd lite, he made a
wide circuit around the place where he
Judged them to be, moving with all the
stealth, deliberation and caution that
was In olden times said to characterize
the movements of an expert scout trail
ing an Indian warrior or vice versa.
On reaching the leeward side be
moved forwaid a few paces as nolse
lesly as Cooper's Indian Chlngachgook
and caught sight of n deer Just as the
animal was lying down. In lying down
the deer became hidden from view by
an Intervening log. The hunter's reso
lution was Immediately taken. He
coeknl his rllle and threw It forward
for Instant use; then he calmly reached
out one hand and snapped a small
twig. Tho noise was slight but suffi
cient. The deer sprung to Its feet and
was shot on the Instant.
The report of the rllle brought an
other deer to Its feet nnd the second
deer was as promptly dispatched. Near
the second doer a third deer was now
seen running, but was speedily over
taken by the third bullet from Mr.
Leavltt's repeater. Looking about to
see If there were any more worlds to
conquer nnd llndluc none at hand and
then suddenly remembering that the
law as It then was only nuthoilzed him
to kill three deer, Mr. Leavltt, like a
law-abiding citizen as he Is, promptly
ceased hunting and set about dressing
the three deer, shot single-handed and
alone. In whnt was probably the quick
est time on record in this country.

happy pair being married by tele

most wholly of an economical nature,

New England city, while the groom was
engaged In business at Los Angeles,
Cal. After the ceremony the twain made
their respective way to tho nearest
railway station, whero they took train

Bluffs, Iowa, tho groom accompanying
his brldo thence- back to the home he
had prepared for her.
One admirable feature of the present
fashion of long-distance hone moons
Is tho diversity nfforded In choosing
suitable gifts. Thus tho couple bound
to tho tropics, the mountains ol India
or the Aztec ruins of Mexico appreci
ate such articles as a camera, a pair of
lleldglasses, an alpenstock or half a
hundred other similar articles ot real
uso or necessity, nnd tho almost Incvl
tnblo dupUcato butter dlshoi nnd ollvo
tongs aro avoided. It Is true that an
overplus of photographic or optical ap
paratus might thus result, but then
these articles are always more or less
desirable even In quantities, nnd no
criticism Is engendered oy their absence
from a prominent position on the buffet
or dining table.
Somo fow years ago, when the happy
pair were accustomed to rumble awny
in their coach to tnko train or boat for
a few weeks' jaunt to somo near-by re
sort, tho minds of tho wedding gucsti
wero filled with naught but pleasure
and anticipation of the joys in store for

faces turned toward such romantic
parts of the world as Siberia, ct al., it
becomes a much more serious matter,

a bad habit of rising in the night to

"how can you?"
"I can tell," she said with conviction.
"But how?" said Dick, skeptically.
"I can," she repeated; "and since you
won't promise, you nnughty boy, I shall
empty the bottle." And she did so, to
