ORIGIN OP KALAMAZOO.
TfcU I (he Pretlr l.rKonil That la Re-
sponsible for the Michigan
Tho name of Knlnmnzoo, llko Osh
kosli mid one or two others, has como
to bo to foreigners n aynonyni of
Amcrlnnn absurdity. It In often chos
en, for Rome occult renBon, to Illustrate
that form of toriineuliir English
known ns "United States."
Hub nil thought of ridicule vanishes
when Its romantic origin is considered,
for it Is the echo tlll lingering about
tho memory of two dimity lover, who,
in that long-gone time ulicn Michigan
was the home mainly of Indian tribes,
lived and loved on the hunks of tho
river which now beam their names.
Kahla, tho young wurrlor, wns
straight of limb and eagle-eyed, while
llahzoo had been given by the Urcnt
Spirit tho many grnces nnd virtues for
"which Indian maidens have become
noted in song and legend. Life to these
two possessed nil tho charms which
truo a fleet Ion has ever granted to
lovers, nnd the days, as they came and
went, brought only abounding joy.
Knch summer evening, ns the twi
light deepened and tho time drew nenr
for her lover's return from the chase,
the mnldon watched from her bower
in tho swaying brunches of a glnnt elm
overhanging the river's edge for the
first sign of his coming. As the bow of
Ids canoe shot round the curve away in
tho distance her clear musical voice
ailed to hlra: Kahlal Kahla!" and
from tho young warrior came in loving
.tones tho response: "Mahzool"
MASONS IN THE WAR.
Rotes' for Their Interne Patriotism
Many of Them Knllat and Lodge
A largo proportion of tho soldiers
who hnvo'gone or aro making ready to
go to tho war arc masons, an order
universally noted for, its intense pa
triotism, says the Chicago Chronicle.
The "lodge" has been mude to cover a
multitude of small sins by those who
seeded a convenient excuse to be ab
sent from home, but all true masons
aro none the less strongly attached to
it. The question has been asked what
wnsonlo soldiers do in lieu of lodge
1 "They don't do without them," snid
Secretary Laften, of the Wisconsin
grand lodge of masons, recently, when
approached on the subject. "Why, dur
ing our Inst war they had masonic
lodges in the nrmy. Some of the grand
lodges granted dispensations for tho
rganlcatlon of lodges.
"If the nrmy was near a city they
rented halls for meetings. If they
wore not near nny cly they held their
sessions in an officer's tent. Officers
of the nrmy in many cases were mem
ber of the masonio fraternity, and it
was an easy thing to have the tent in
which the meeting was held sufficient
ly protected from intrusion. Guards
were posted and no one wns allowed
within hearing distance unless they
ould pass tho guard, who of course
was a maBon selected for the occasion."
POUNDED THE DOQ TO DEATH.
How a Monkey Mude Good Die of a Dili
Kike a Policeman's Club.
"The most novel fight I ever wit
ncsHcd," remarked a traveler to a
writer for tho Cincinnati Enquirer,
"was between a bulldog nnd nraonkoy,
down In Cuba. A friend of mlno hod a
bulldog that had licked every canlno
on tho island, nnd ho was very proud
of him. A gentleman from Month
America said that ho had n monkey
that could whip tho bulldog and tho
owner of the latter laughed nt tho idea.
After some tnlkn wngcr of tlvo hundred
dollars was mndo nnd tho only ndvnn
tago that tho monkey was to have was
that ho was to be allowed tho privilego
of using a baton, about tho length of a
policeman's club, but not bo heavy.
Tho light was in a public place, and in
a pit that was surrounded by an iron
grating. Thcro was a big crowd out
to sco tho tight. Of courso everybody
thought tho dog would chew up tho
monkey. After a few minutes, how
over, tho audience wan surprised at
the sagacity displayed by the monkey.
Tho bulldog would make a rush
at tho monkey, nnd tho latter would
jump asldo nnd allow tho bulldog
to hit his head against tho iron
gratings. This was kept up for twenty
minutes or moro, and then tho dog be
gan to got tired. Tho monkey began
to fight. Ha would let tho dog mako a

Tho monkey would strllco tho dog sev

Finally tho owner of the dog agreed to
glvo up tho fight, but tho owner of tho
monkey told him that ho was too Into,
ns tho monkey would not quit until ho
had killed the dog. This was one
of tho peculiarities of tho monkey.
They always kill their victims. Tho
owner of tho dog said ho did not wnnt

tho monkey off. While 'hoy wcro talk

The cleverest marine architects have

tect the stoutest single screw liners, hit
lard amidships or thereabouts, from
disaster. Every Bteamship that has
keen struck far from kind by even so
modest a craft as a coal laden schooner

Oregon, oft Fire Island, on March 14,
1800, and sometimes with more than
three-quarters of all on board, says the
New York Sun.
The Vllle du Havre, of the French
line, was run down almost in the same
way as La Bourgogne met disaster.
The iron British ship Loch Enrn hit the
Vllle du Havre in a fog in mldoeean ou
November 23, 1B73, almost cutting her
in two. She foundered, and only 230 otft
f 317 persons aboard were saved. The
steamship Goiscr, of the Thlngvalla
line, was hit, off Sable island in a fog
on AugUBt 13, 1888, by theThlngralln, a
sister ship, nnd 73 passengers and 33 of
her crew were lost. The North German
Lloyd steamship Elbe foundered in the
North sea after being rammed by tho
little British steamship Crnthle on
January 30. 1805.

According to Natural Science, Dr,
Olsen, of Norway, has learned by
atudying habits of microbes, to make
cheese backward, ne keeps a stock
f tho microbes of vnrious cheeses, and
out of a bowl of milk makes Gorgon
eels, StUton or ,Cnmembert, as re
quired. This threatens a serious blow
to the British farmer, for it is obvious
that Br. Olsen has only to follow the
tracks of his microbes a little further
"back to produce the milk that makes
the cheese and the cow that makes the
milk. Then be British farmer will sit
idly on n gate watching Dr. Olsen with
a cage full of microbes turning n field
of grass into choice Bhorthorns and

A story comes by mail from the far

Tho story concerns tho big four
masted iron ship Lucipara. Sho hails
from Glasgow, and recently mado a
voyago from 8harpncss to Sydney, N.
8. W. While sailing along between
tho Cape of Good Hopo and Australia,
tho ship run Into a hurricane, or was
ovtrtaken by ono, about midnight.
Suddenly the sea, which had boon dan
gerously high, became calm, and to
those on tho ship It seemed as if tho
surface of the ocean had been sub
jected to an enormous pressure, by
which the waves wcro stilled. Without
warning tho men were almost blinded
by a sheet of flame, which enveloped
tho ship from stem to stern, and
reached half way up tho masts.
This wave of llamo surged back and
forth, fore and aft, for a few seconds,
and was then Bnuffed out as suddenly
as it had appeared, leaving captain
and crew groping about in intense
darkness! The blinding glare was ex
tremely painful to tho eyes, but caused
no damage cither to tho men or to tho
ship. Capt Witt said It was his first
experience of the kind, and he hoped
it would be the last.
