Oil and pepper are the two things
that especially characterize the Oastilian
cuisino. , OQQof'the favorite dishes in
Gnba'is"tasajo , " which is simply dried
'meat ' , cooked with tomatoes , red pep
pers nnd onions. "Tripa a la Andaluza"
is another preparation frequently seen.
As the name indicates , the basis is
boiled tripe , which is cooked with beans
end potatoes , and always served with
the small red Spanish sausage known
as "Bntafarra Catalina. " A similar
sausage , only black , is known as"Buta-
farra Astoriaua. "
"Ohilo con carne , " which evprybody
eats , is nothing more than a thick stew
of beef ( carne ) and beans seasoned with
chiles. Spanifih "tortillas" are corn
cakes flavored with red peppers , and
differ from tlio Mexican tortilla in thttt
the latter , when properly made , are
rolled in chopped vegetables. A salad
a la Espanola is prepared of lettnco
ind celery , with a few sliced tomatoen
tnd poppers. Served with French dress
ing it is very good.
The Spanish soups are as a rule a lit
tle too heavy for the American taste ,
which runs more toward the consomme.
They are thick decoctions , full of vege
tables , and look frightfully greasy
Soup , however , does not have the im
portant role among the Spaniards that
it playe in French domestic economy ,
and is an article of secondary impor
tance. The dishes named are pretty apt
to appear ore long on homo menus , nud
it is interesting to know in advance
what they are composed of. New Or
Hooks Rather Than Food.
Success gives an interesting anecdote
told by Agassiz of his visit when a
young man to the great German nat
uralist , Professor Lorenz Oken.
The professor received his guest with
warm enthusiasm , but apparent embar
rassment. He showed his visitor the
laboratory and the students at work ,
also his cabinet ; and lastly his splendid
library of boobs pertaining to zoological
science , a collection worth some § 7,000 ,
and well deserving the glow of pride
which the owner manifested as he ex
piated on its excellence. The dinner
hour came , and then the embarrassment
of the great German reached its maxi
mum point. "M. Agassiz , " he said ,
with perturbation , "to gather and keep
up this library exacts the utmost hus
bandry of my pecuniary means. To ao-
cornplish this I allow myself no luxuiy
whatever. ' Hence my table is restricted
to the plainest fare. Thrice a week our
table boasts of meat , the other days we
have only potatoes and salt. I very
much regret that your visit has occurred
upon a potato day. " And so the splen
did Swftzer and the great German , with
his students , dined together on potatoes
and salt. And what must those students
have enjoyed in the conversation of
those remarkable men !
Telling : Him the Truth.
"I think Willie is learning to smoke , "
said his mother. "I wish yon to speak
to him about it. "
" What shall I say to him ? " asked his
"Why , tell him the truth , of course. "
And so "Willie was duly called up ,
and his father put on a severe look and
"Willie , I understand you are learn
ing to smoke. Now , before it goes any
further , I want to" tell you what the re
sult ; may be. You may die in a year ,
and then again yon may live to be 100
years old. "
" Why , John , " expostulated the boy's
"You told me to tell him the truth , "
returned the father , "and there's hard
ly a week goes by that I don't hear of
some one close to the century mark who
has smoked ever since he was 14 years
old , while people who never smoked at
all die in infancy with great frequency. ' '
It is sometimes difficult to get a man
who smokes to look at the subject from
the right point of : view. Chicago Post.
Going ? Without Sleep.
It is an interesting question to.studi-
ous people how long a man can go
without sleep. A physician asserts that
no healthy man can overwork because
eventually nature will compel him to
fall asleep at hia task. A journalist re
cently claimed to have worked 72 hours
without sleeping. Humboldt said that
when a young man he required only
two hours sleep each night , but that in
his old age he found he really needed
as many as three or four. Victims sub
jected to the Chinese torture of being
kept continually awake die on or before
the fifth day. By far the most inspiring
example , however , is that of one of the
saints , who is related to have lived 19
years without sleep and to have remain
ed standing a large portion of that time.
San Francisco Argonaut.
A lady who lived near Thomas Car
lyle kept Cochin China fowls , and their
crowing was such a nuisance that the
philosopher sent a complaint to her.
The owner was indignant upon hearing
"Why"said she , "they crow only
four times a day , and how can Mr.
Carlyle bo seriously annoyed at that ? "
Upon hearing of her attitude upon
the subject , Carlyle replied , "The lady
forgets the pain I suffer in waiting for
those four crows. "
"Did the old skinflint give you a re
ward for returning his pocketbook ? "
/ asked the policeman of the little news
boy who helps support his mother.
"Naw , he tried ter make me pay fnr
de advertisiu 'cause I didu' return de
stuff 'fore I knowed who it b'longed
ter. " Detroit Free Press.

It should be impressed upon all young
persons that during life each member
of the body , in the very net of living ,
produces poison to itself , notes a writer
in Popular Science Monthly. When this
poison accumulates faster than it can be
eliminated , which always occurs unless
the muscle has an interval of rest , then
will come fatigue , which is only anoth
er expression for toxic infection. If th
muscle is given an interval of rest ,
that the cell can give off its waste prod
uct to keep pace with the new produc
tions , the muscle will then liberate en
ergy for a long time. This latter condi
tion is what we call endurance.
The power and endurance of the hu
man machine is limited according t
our understanding * > f the above facts ,
and alee our recognition of its slownes
in getting started. Like any other pen
derons and intricate machine , the bed ;
requires time to get in harmoniou
working order. The brain , nerves , hear
and skeletal muscles must be given
some warning of the work they are ex <
pected collectively to perform. Ignorance

a young man whd aspired to honors on
the cinder path.
The necessity of getting all the parti
of the body slowly in working order is
well understood by trainers and jockeys
on the race track , as is evidenced by th
preliminary "warming up" they give
their horses , although it is doubtful if
the trainers could give any physiologic
reason for this custom.
His Wonderful Curio * .
The author of "Idyls of Spain" speaks
of a notary whom he met , whose naive
simplicity surely could not be exceeded.
"He asked for our autographs , and I
inquired whether he was a collector of
" 'Yes , sir , ' he replied , 'I am , and
among others I have a most precious
collection of anonymous ones. '
"Beaming with delight , he produced
a rare manuscript of the time of Fer
dinand and Isabella , exquisitely writ
ten , and with the initial letters beauti
" 'Senores. ' he cried with enthusi
asm , 'look at this. Isn't it a beauty ?
I'm always collecting such things.
Then I have just purchased by letter the
manuscript of the "Iliad , " written by
Homer himself , his own handwriting.

"At this Miguel came to the rescue ,

" 'I say , ' inquired Miguel , 'what doc
ument would your worship like most
to have in your possession ? '
" 'Why , ' answered the notary , 'the
telegram from Christopher Columbus
announcing the discovery of the new
world. ' "
Bannnas In Typhoid Fever.
After a long experience with typhoid
patients , Dr. Ussery of St. Louis main
tains that the best food for them is the
banana. He explains by stating that in
this disease the lining membrane of the
small intestines becomes intensely in
flamed and engorged , eventually begin
ning to slough away in spots , leaving
well defined ulcers , at which places the
intestinal walls become dangerously
Now , a solid food , if taken into the
stomach , is likely to produce perforation
of the intestines , dire results naturally
following , and , this being the case ,
solid foods or those containing a large
amount of innutritions substances are
to be avoided as dangerous.
But the banana , though it may be
classed as a solid food , containing as it
does some 05 per cent nutrition , does
not possess sufficient waste to irritate
the sore spots. Nearly the whole amount
taken into the stomach is absorbed , giv
ing the patient more strength than can
be obtained from other food. Ameri
A Mountain of Sulphur.
The "Soufriere , " or sulphurous
mountain , is considered to be the great
est natural curiosity of St. Lucia , and ,
in fact , of the West Indies. It is situ
ated about h.alf an hour's ride from the
town of Soufriere , to which it has given
its name , and nearly two miles to the
east of the Pitons , and is at the foot of
two small hills , both of which are
quite bare of vegetation on the sides
facing the crater.
It covers a space of about three acres
and is crusted over with sulphur and
alum. There are several caldrons in a
perpetual state of ebullition. The water
is quite black in the larger ones and
boils up to the height of two or three
