Pierre Loti. the French author, el ways did like a practical joke. A French poet who had been advocating a return, to the simple life decided one day to make the acquaintance of Loti. He left bis village, be who never trav els, stick In hand, to make the jour ney to Hendaye. the home of Loti. on foot He prayed the celebrated novel ist to receive him without ceremony; that he should - be satisfied with a bowl of milk for his repast. But he was much astonished when the novelist took him at bis word. In the dining room on a table without cloth or napkin there was only an Im mense crock of milk. The visitor showed some hesitation about beginning tbefeast. Meanwhile his host began to" walk around the room like a bear In a cage, only inter rupting bis walk from time to time to take a long swig of milk from the crock. Without saying a word the host invited the astonished guest to Imitate him. The man of the simple life bad found one more simple than himself, and be left the bouse convinced that the great novelist had become crazy. British Julius Caesars. Julius Caesar, who on one of the dosing days of August in 56 B.

"Remem ber Caesar." The unpopular Karl of Portland sat up all night in a barri caded bouse with his friends and re tainers armed to the teeth because he found In his pocket a slip of paper bidding him "Remember Caesar.", which really bad reference not to the assassination of the Roman statesman,1 but to some preferment promised to a son of Sir Julius Caesar.

Stray Stories. KNOCKED FOR RAIN. And Within an Hour the Wind Veered and the Shower Came. Frances Gostling. author of "The Britons at Home," has this curious tale of the dolmen of Rocenaud with Its curious cup shaped impressions like the constellation Pleiades: An old wo man, a bystander, was asked what the marks were for. "Folks say," said she. "that they were made by the el bows and knees of St Rock. He fell down on this stone when he landed from 'Ireland." And then the old wo man added: "We use the holes now when we waut the wind to change. We knock In -them." The story con tinues: " Do ask her to knock!' 1 cried eagerly. There was. a moment of hesi tation on the part of the old woman, a half franc shown in a careless way. and 'What wind would madam like to have? 'Southwest' said 1, looking at the cloudless sky. "The old woman took up a flint and went slowly to the dolmen. Without any pause for reflection she knocked three times in a particular depression, murmuring some words 1 should not have understood even had they been audible. 'Come.' observed my friend; 'we have yet time to see the rest of the peninsula.' "The old woman said something, at which . M. le Rouzic laughed. 'She says that if we are going' farther it will be best to be quick,' said he. 'Why?' The rain you asked for will be here shortly.' And in less than an hour it was raining." Needle Dust In factories where needles are made the grindstones throw off gtpat quanti ties of minute steel partlcies. with which the air becomes heavily charg ed, although the dust is too fine to be perceptible to the eye.

ARMY FLAGS. 4- The Largest ' Is the Garrison Flat, Twenty by Thirty-six Feet .The. largest ensign made Is called No. 1, and .its dimensions are thirty- six feet on the fly and nineteen feet at the hoist but this Is very rarely used. The largest flag used In tbe army It the garrison flag, with a thirty-six foot fly and a twenty foot hoist' which is displayed only on holidays and impor tant occasions. To describe tbe various designs and give tbe different dimensions of all the flags used in onr army and navy would require several columns of space. Thne Is a considerable num ber of flags of various kinds that have peculiar functions to perform. Tbe amount of bunting required for tbe outfit of one of our battleships Is something enormous, for, besides our own flags, she musfbe supplied with a varied" assortment (some forty odd) of foreign national flags for display, as naval etiquette demands, when tbe high officials 'of other nations come aboard or' whose waters our ships en ter while on a foreign cruise. All of these foreign flags are made at tbe Brooklyn navy yard. Manches ter (N. H.) Union. Not Worth Having.
