MIGRATORY RAIN EELT.
How It Has Changed Western Deserts
Into Profitable Farm
“The rain belt? Why il nutvi
oft flier Ilian a deadbeat reiiier."
It was a Texan who was thus de
scribing thf customs of the moist
area, lb K. Mryant, a lawyer of Sher
man. Tex. lie lias lived in (J my son
county, near Sherman, f>o years.
“When I first went to Texas from
Kentucky in ,launary, I8ml, llu
country and climate were dry,” lie
said, “Kansas was habitually dry.
In Texas llu black loam of Uraysoii
county and the adjacent counties had
barely enough moisture to raise a
poor crop. Now there has been toe
much ruin for the amount of tiling
and the depth of drainage.
“'The cliangf* lias Imvii gradual,
just us it has hern in Kansas, W’est
<>rn Kansas, which was once a desert,
is now just a hunt right for agricul
ture. The eastern end, which was
once just right, has been deluged in
late years. The rain hell has moved
500 miles west in the last 55 years,
and most id' the moving has been in
the last ‘*’0 years.”
TEST, TASTE AND TESTINESS IN
The meaning of words and dis
putes as to the exact words used by
witnesses caused some amusing ar
guments al a recent sitting of the
supreme emu I. Sir Henry Berkeley
was telling the jury' that a witness
Isaid he went to a certain shop fre
Mr. Slade objected that that state
ment was not correct. 'The word
used was “occasionally.”
Sir Henry turned up his notes
and found the words were “a good
many times.’’ “A good many
times” means “frequently." argued
Sir Henry. “I venture to say Web
ster will prove that.”
A little later Sir Henry said th<
witness was seen tasting the sugai
at the Cheung f.oong shop.
“He said testfWg,” interrupted
the chief just ice.

and engincer-in-cliiof of a railroad
which has recently hef n opened m
the Hongkong hinterland. Of the
six locomotives used four were pur
chased in the I niled States, the

building the road was in overcoming
the obstinacy of the natives, who op
posed the work on the ground that
the smoke from the locomotive
would ruin their crops.

BARGAINING WITH A BURGLAR.
How an Old Banker Used Diplomacy
to Get Rid of an Unwelcome
A group of his friends wen* dis
cussing William W inslow Sherman,
the old banker, who died not long
“lie had the coolest nerve of any
man I know,” said oue. “Three or
four years ago, when Sherman was
an old man ami partially crippled bv
reason of a fall from a horse, lie en
tered his bedroom late at, night to
I*ml a masked burglar ransacking it.
“The thief laid a big gun raised on
Sherman in a minute. The banker
just waved it aside with a tired
hand. ‘Put (bat away,* he said ir
ritably. ‘Let us discuss this matter
like gentlemen.' Tlu* burglar was
so surprised he laughed. ‘Mow. you
could hurt me if you wanted to, and
might get away with some little
knick-knacks.' said Sherman. ‘But
you might lie caught, and there's a
slight probability that you could dis
pose of mv toilet articles profitably.
W'lint would you consider a fair cash
proposition to go away ?’ They talked
it over in all peace.
“ I he burglar thought he ought
lo have ten dollars, hut Sherman,
after inquiring into the man’s
habits, said eight dollars was enough.
‘You see,* lie said, “you’re a known
lliiof. If (Ids were your first of
fense I’d pay you your price, hut
now the police have your picture you
ought lo he glad lo accept any fait
compromise and run no risk.'
“The burglar finally agreed to
take eight dollars. Sherman pulled
out a tcn-dollar bill, ‘(five me twc
dollars change,’ said he. And h«
got it lie fore he paid.’’

TALE OF TWO CITIES.
New York lleeees her dweller- by
ordinance, her visitors by agreement,
her transienls bv sandbags; Boston
sells them copper slocks and revolu

who Inis escaped the alderman, the
lobster palace and the sand bagger
gives his money to a Imnk receiver,
and that prudent person brings it: to
Boston to escape the burglar. New
York is a financial center, Boston is
a financial refuge. People camp on

homes in Boston, (lothnm is clubbed

A FIGHTING SNAKE.
There is only one snake in the
far east—that is, Burma, India,
Siam and the Malay peninsula—
that will always and at all times at
tack a man on sight. That is the
hamadryad, justly more feared Ilian
any other animal that crawls.
Fortunately for mankind, they are
not common except in limited dis
tricts. They are so feared by all
that the native skirarris or hunters
will go miles out of their way to
avoid the locality in which they arc?
known to exist. The hamadryad
will stalk a man as a tiger stalks his
