The Dutch, admiral detected the enemy In the early seraing, when the sea was covered with a thick mist; and his gans opened fire at eace with out warning. The fire was returned with Interest, the ocean fairly quiver ing with spasms caused by the shock of frequent discharges. Somehow or other the enemy's snots, which sound ed like a bombardment; seemed to fall short or go wide of. the mark, for not even a splash of a ball was heard, and the Dutch ships remained unscathed. On the other hand, the Dutch could not see the terrible execution their .guns were doing until nearly the middle of the forenoon, when the fog lifted, re vealing to their astonished gaze not the vessels of the enemy, but a great rock standing out of the sea. They had been firing at it for five hours, and the sound of the return shots they heard was the echo from the solid wall of granite. They named-the place Bedonda, which means sent, rolled or driven back, and Bedonda it is to this day. Oae of the FaaUljr. James Seymour, the artist, was bora in XiOndon In 1702. He displayed s fondness for drawing and painting in boyhood and subsequently gained ce lebrity by his skill in designing horses. Once the proud Duke of Somerset em ployed Seymour to paint a- room at his seat in Sussex, with the portraits of his running horses. Having admitted the artist to his table, begone day drank to him, saying: "Cousin Seymour, your health." The painter replied, "My lord, I real ly believe that I have the honor of be ing of your grace's family." - This hurt the pride of the duke sc much that he rose from the table and ordered his steward to pay Seymour and dismiss him. Finding, however, that no one in England could complete the pictures begun, he condescended to send for his' cousin. The painter re sponded to the message in these words: "My lord, I will now prove that I am of your grace's family, for I won't come." Sea Otter Slcla. The furrier was taking his stock out of the cold storage room. It came forth frozen stiff and coated with glis tening white frost But there was one beautiful skin that though just as stiff as any of the others, had no frost on it "I want you to look at this skin," he said. "It is the kind that the richest Russians, grand dukes, and so on, have their overcoat collars made of. It is a sea otter's 'skin, and it is so expensive that often one coat collar of it will cost 300. It is unquestionably the best skin in the world to make coat collars of. Why? Look at this one, and you'll see. AH my other skins are covered with frost while on this fur no frost whatever appears. And that's the rea son why sea otter skins make the best coat collars. The breath, for some un known reason, doesn't freeze on them." New York Press. X las aa Oata.

Dtotlas-alshed fcy Mavemeata. Observant and far sighted persons distinguish at great distances a man from a woman, not by dress, face or figure, but by movements. The mo tions of the most graceful of men are ungainly when compared with "the sinu ous lines that most women Instinctively assume. It often happens that a single motion of a distant figure, and especial ly a motion of the arms above the head, will instantly determine for a trained observer the sex of the person. If any one doubts this let him note the awk ward, windmill-like performance of a man arranging his hair and the grace ful curves and deft touches with which a woman accomplishes the same thing.
