[ From Thursday's Dally. ]
Rastus , the little ten-weeks-old cock-
rel spaniel puppy that had been stolen
from the Oxnard hotel , is now safely
returned to its owner , Mrs. O. H. Vail.
Shortly after TIIE NEWS came out last
evening , several persons called at the
office with information regarding the
pet. They had seen it near the river in
possession of a family who live on First
street. A messenger was immediately'
sent to the house where nny knowledge.
of the dog was denied. Strenuous in-
eistance , thowever , developed the fact
that they did have Rastns and that the
boys were even then tossing him into
the Northfork , just to watch the little
fellow swim out again.
Rastus was glad to get back to the
hotel. As he was being carried away
from the boys who had thrown him into
the water , Rastns gave them a bark that
I . they might float , instead of himself.
And that is the tale of the little hotel

Today for the first time this season
the street sprinkler started on its rounds ,
shooting streams of water along the
dusty parts of Norfolk avenue and
bringing relief to people in the business

too soon. With the fearful wind that
swept into town this morning and
nearly blow up a number of the business
houses , besides taking a tear ont of
every street it struck , the eyes of Nor

grains of dirt and the disposition of the
city was getting pretty much "all in , "

THE AMERICAN SAILOR.
lie Worka and I'lay * Hard and Splni
Great Yarn * .
The sailor's life Is not altogether one
of hard work , and on thu whole ho has
a very good time. Dancing , gymnas
tics , fencing , boxing and boat racing
fill his leisure hours. Ills natural fond
ness for pets Is proverbial , and there
are few ships without a mascot , be It
a goat , dog or Dennis the pig , which
serves to lighten thu hours of .tlie < l H
watches at sea. Many stories are told
of thu prowess of ships' pets at night
on the forecastle , when the hammocks
are down and the pipes lighted. One
man spins a yarn of n cat that was
born in an old boiler , cruised 60,000
miles in onu ship , established a great
reputation as a tighter In all parts of
the world and finally ended his adven
turous career on the coral reefs of Sa
moa , says a writer In the World's
Work. Another tells of a monkey
without ears or tall , with which he
sailed in the China seas , whoso fond
ness for liquid paint produced period
ical attacks of blindness. Theru is a
story of a dissipated dog who never
lost an opportunity to get drunk and
who always recognized the bugle call
for the gfg and Invariably ran to the
gangway when it sounded to go ashore
with the captain. But the best of all
Is the one of the pet.bear AVho chased a
young oflleer up the rnizzen rigging.
Fortunate indeed Is the animal that
falls Into the hands of n sailor.
"The sailor man has his vagaries , "
once said the bishop of Shanghai over
the coUin of a sailor who had taken his
own life , "but he is the teudcrest heart
ed creature into which God ever
breathed the breath of life. "
A Powerful lllver.
"Should one be asked at random to
name the most powerful river In New
England that Is , the river yielding the
most water power and doing the most
work he would be likely to name the
Mcrrlmac , " said M. S. Kdgur of Port-
laud , Me. "He would have In mind
the great manufacturing city of Low
ell , und the answer would be a natural
one. It Is surprising , therefore , to bo
told by the United States geological
survey that the most powerful river In
New England Is the Audroscoggin.
Yet the surprise abates when the facts
are recounted.- There are nine or ten
developed water powers along the riv
er , and It appears that they furnish to
tal power equal to 73,000 horses. The
falls at Brunswick yield 7,700 horse
power ; at Lisbon Falls , 1,025 ; at Lewiston -
ton , J2.GOO ; at Llvermoro Falls , 3,000 ;
at Otis Falls , 8,000 ; at Jay's , 3,700 ; at
Peterson's Itlps , 0,000. At Rurnford
Falls there Is a potential of 30,000
horsepower when the resources at that
place are fully deyeloped , and that Is
altogether the greatest water power in
New England. " Washington Times.
Cheese is ono of the most concentrat
ed forms of nitrogenous food and as a
food well adapted to the laboring man
or those working in the open air. When
properly cooked , cheese Is probably
more easily assimilated by the ordinary
stomach than eaten raw , and bard , un
cooked cheese should bo served grated.
In combination with certain food mate
rials cheese Is valuable , but when used
In this way should form the staple dish
of the Jnnal. Macaroni and cheese , rice
cooked In stock and then baked with
chees * } or cooked with It , ns in the form
of risotto , should be used in the place
of meat. An ordinary dinner menu of
meat , potato , macaroni and checso is

dish , nnd a green vegetable should be
served with meat and potato.

DANIEL J. KocruasTEiN ,
The Anacliroiilnma That Crowded n
Once Fainoun 1'oeiu.
The mediajval romances are full of
blunders , making contemporaries of
men who were separated sometimes
by hundreds , sometimes by thousands ,
of years , but as historical criticism had
not then a being and the general Information
mation of the age was not superior
In any particular to that of the novel
ists , their plans do not amount to
much from a literary point of view.
Such an instance is the case of Ariosto ,
who might be supposed to know some
thing at least of the truth of history ,
but whose once famous poem , "Orlan
do Furloso , " Is a tissue of historical
absurdities from beginning to end.
In this poem Charlemagne and his
peers are Joined by Edward I. of Eng
land , Itlchnrd , earl of Warwick ; Clar
ence , and the Dukes of York and
Gloucester. Cannon are employed Hun
dreds of years before the time of Monk
Schwartz , and the Moors are repre
sented as established In Spain , in spite
of the historic fact that 300 years
elapsed after the death of Charle
magne before they crossed from Africa.
In one place Prester John , who lived
400 years after Charlemagne , nnd Constantine
stantino the Great , who died five cen
turies before him , are Introduced njid
hold familiar converse with the great
Charles , while In another Sulndln and
Edward the Confessor are joined by
the Black Prince.
A Lincoln Story.
The spirit In which Lincoln Joined in
his famous debate with Douglas is best
Illustrated by an anecdote which Leon
ard Swett related to Augustus C. Bu-
ell. "I believe , Abe , you can beat Doug
las for the senate. You can carry the
legislature if you make the best use of
your opportunity , " said Mr. Swctt to
Lincoln on the eve of the first debate.
"No , Len , I can't beat him for the senate -
ate , but I'll make him beat himself for
the presidency. " Leslie's Weekly.
"Here , you ! " cried big Mrs. Cassldy.
"Sthrolko or no sthrolke , Ol'll not hov

"Well , oh , well , " meekly protested

Ono of the popular features of the
annual horse show In New York Is the
squad of park police homes that Is al
ways entered. The winning of a blue
ribbon by ono of these police horses Is
told In "Horses Nine , " by Sewell Kord ,
from the viewpoint of the horse. The
author says :
So It happened that ono morning
Skipper heard thu sergeant tell Iteddy
that he had been detailed for the horse
show siiiad. | Heddy had saluted and
said nothing at the time , but when
they were once out on post he told
Bklpper all about It.

the smells confused him , but he felt

Then there was n great crash of
noise , and Skipper , with some fifty of
his friends on the force , began to move
around the circle. First It was fours
abreast , then by twos , and then n rush
to troop front , when , In a long line ,
they swept around as if they had been
harnessed to a beam by traces of equal
After some more evolutions a half
dozen were picked out and put through
their pnrps. Skipper was ono of these.
Then three of the six wcro sent to Join
the rest of the squad. Only Skipper
and two others remained In the center
of the ring. Men In queer clothes ,
wearing tall , black hats , showing much
white shirt front and carrying long
whips , came and looked them over
Skipper showed these men how ho
could waltz in tlino to the music , nnd
the people who banked the clrclo as
far up ns Skipper could see shouted
nnd clapped their hands until It seemed
as If n thunderstorm had broken looso.
At last one of the men In tall hats tied
a blue ribbon on Skipper's bridle.
When Hcddy got him Into the Btnblo ,
he fed him four big red apples , ono
after the other. Next day Skipper
knew that ho was a famous horse.

The fruit was handed to us , politely

A few days later , adding the excite
