"Six double sets were already danc-
Jlng under the big hush arbor when the
I fflnilli'y.s drove up. High above the
dantors a string bund played for dear

"Your pretty speeches must be sadly

Beached the edge of It :

"CCvo , nnd I don't think I shall ever

time with her foot.
, The quadrille was In its last whirls.
Kltts raised his hand and nodded ellght-

tthe fiddles broke out iu the maddest ,

through their madly gay rush. No

A family carriage , nmty and ancient ,

Madame turned away ns though she

As for GusHlo , Hhe was too happy and

Travelers received by the sultan of
Morocco wore at ono time required to
make the customary obeisance of the
country , but that ceremonial Is now
omitted. The reason , according to La
dy Grove in her "Seventy-one Days'
Camping , " goes back to a slight ' -'octal
awkwardness Involved In carrying out
A distinguished naturalist had been
presented to the sultan , and as ho
bowed his head to the ground , instead
of supporting himself with his hands ,
ho placed them behind his hack ; con
sequently his forehead came against
the marble floor with a loud bang , and
ho had some dilllculty In recovering
The sultan was amazed. "Has not
the gentleman had the honor of enterIng -
Ing the presence of his own sovereign ? "
he nuked another visitor later.
"Probably ho has had that honor ,
your majesty , " was the answer.
"Then , " said the sultan , "he should
have learned the art of maklmr saluta
tions without the occurrence of such
Thereupon his majesty learned with
astonishment that this lowly form of
obeisance Is not observed at European
courts , nnd ho .Immediately decreed
that none but the usual customs de
manded by European sovereigns should
bo required of Europeans when they
entered or left his presence.
A Clon ( Combination.
"They can get up combinations in the
west , to beat tlio band , " said a Phila
delphia drummer who had come In off
a trip and had n shortage to explain.
"In a town in western Iowa I had n
difference of opinion with n landlord
nnd called him a liar. lie was a depu
ty sheriff , and ho arrested me. Ills
brother was prosecuting attorney , nnd
ho was against me. The Judge was
his brothcr-ln-law , and ho tried the
case. I said I'd take ten days In Jail
sooner than pay the line , but when I
came to be locked up the jailer said tome
" 'You'd better pay. I'm the father
In-law of the Judge , and It will be my
duty to put you In n cell with a pris
oner who's gone crazy and wants to
kill somebody. "
"I paid and was released , " said the
drummer , "but I wanted revenge. I
went to the only lawyer in town with
a reputation and stated my case urn !
asked him to take It.
" 'Yes , ' he replied , 'but think how it
would look. I'm son-in-law to the

Probably the munllest painting ever
made WIIH the work of the wife of a
Flemish nrtlHt. It depleted a mill with
the Halls bent , the miller mounting the
stairs with a sack of grain on his hack.
Upon the terrace where the mill stood
was a cart and horse , nnd on the road
lending to It Hcvernl pennants were
shown. The picture was beautifully
finlnhcd , nnd every object was very dls-
Mner , yet It was so amazingly small
that Its surface , so the story goes ,
could bo covered with n grain of corn.
In contradistinction to this the lar
gest painting , exclusive of frescoes nnd

It Is hung In the grand Biiloon of the

in Sumatra there Is u very singular
. ace of human beings called the Kubus.
They are the most timid and bashful
people in the world , being too shy to j
mingle with tlio other races of the is
land. They dwell In the darkest re
cesses of the mountain forests and
liave seldom been seen by white men.
One 1ms never boon known to willingly
face a stranger. This being the case , j
their trade with the Malayans is car
ried on In a very strange way. The
trader announces his arrival by beat
ing a gong and then retires from the
place of rendezvous. The shy Kubus
then approach , put their forest treas
ures on the ground , beat the trader's
gong and retreat. The trader then re
turns and lays his commodities down
In quantities sulllcleut to pay the pur
chase price of the goods oil sale.
lie then disappears for a second time ,
this to give the Kubus n chance to re
turn and consider the bargain. After
many withdrawals , approaches , gong
beatings , etc. , an understanding is ar
rived at , and each party carries away
its bargain. This remarkable race
knows nothing of n supreme being ,
licnvcn , hell or evil demons. They have
no system of marriage and never bury
their dead. They live on snakes , ants ,
bugs , grubs , etc.
The Creation off the Camel.
There is an Arab tradition cited In
Burton's "Gold Mines of Mldlan" re
garding the creation of the camel
which illustrates the popular but erro
neous opinion that this nnlmnl is ugly
In form nnd temper.
The story goes that when Allah de
termined to create the horse he called
the south wind nnd said , "I desire to
draw from thee a now being ; condense
thyself by parting with thy fluidity. "
The Creator then took a handful of
tills element , blew upon It the breath of
life and the noble quadruped appeared.
But the horse complained against his
Maker. Ills neck was too short to
reach the distant grass blades on the
march ; his back had no hump to steady
a saddle ; his hoofs were sharp and
sank deep into the sand , and ho added
many similar grievances.
Whereupon Allah created the camel
to prove the foolishness of his com
plaint. The horse shuddered nt the
sight of what he wanted to become ,
nnd this is the reason that every horse
starts when meeting Its caricature for
the flrst time.

A solid cubic foot of anthracite coal
weighs ninety -three pounds. When
broken for use , It weighs about fifty-
four pounds. Bituminous coal , when
broken up for use , weighs about fifty
pounds. The consequent rule for the
approximate measurement of coal in
a bin or box is to multiply the length
lu feet by the height In feet and again
by the breadth in feet nnd this result
by fifty-four for nnthrnclto coal or by
fifty for bituminous coal. The result
will equal the number of pounds , and
