Saving the Oil.
ln Cairo." said a journalist, l
beard a queer yarn about tbe fella
bin. Tbe fellahln are tbe native ru
raiists. They are very poor. Well,
when the British built tbe Egyptian
state railway tbe officials were as
tounded at tbe enormous quantities of
train oil that disappeared. They knew
that all this oil couldn't be used for
lubricating purposes, so they made an
Investigation and found that It bad
become tbe staple food of tbe poor
fellahin. Tbe railroad detectives re
ported that tbe fellabln all over
Egypt were using the Egyptian state
railway's train oil as their chief sup
port. They buttered tbelr bread wltb
train oil. They fried tbelr flsh In train
oil. Tbey made a kind of suet pudding
wltb train oil us a base. Tbey drank
train oil heated as a flesh producer or
builder up. So tbe railway officials
mixed castor oil wltb tbe stuff; and
tbe fellabln after a year's torturing
and vain effort to acclimate tbelr sys
tems to tbe mixture decided to give
train oil up."

A colored woman, native of the

Ths Gsntrous Arab.
"Oca day when In our wanderings
we happened to camp near some roll
ing country tbe sheik and I rode off
In search of gazelles." says a traveler
In Arabia. "We found a large herd,
and, being mounted on good horses, we
managed to ride them down, throwing
ourselves off our horses for the shot,
then galloping on again. We killed six
gazelles iu about an hour and rode
back to camp with enough meat for a
big feast. It is the custom that who
ever kills game should provide u feast
for all his friends. On the occasion of
these feasts 1 noticed that there was
always a crowd of hangers-on waiting
at tbe end for u scrap of food, half
starved looking boys and ragged men.
These were orphans whose parents
bad been killed or men whose herds
had been 'lifted' by other Arabs, and
as n result they were destitute, for the
law of tbe Bedouin is "survival jf tbe
fittest' In Its strictest setr. But the
sheik supplied foot'-' liberally, and 1
noticed that be 'always looked after
the poor ami' fed tbe hungry."
A .Life Saving Order.
Many years ago tbe American war
ship Delaware came near foundering
off the coast of Sardinia while luffing
through a heavy squall during a morn
ing watch. The "unauthorized letting
go of the fore sheet" alone saved tbe
ship from going down with 1.100 souls
on board. The first lieutenant, after
ward Commodore Thomas W. Wyman.

was, "Keep clear of tbe paint work!"
This command to hundreds of human
beings packed In tbe lee scuppers like
sardines In a box instantly restored
them to order and prevented a panic.
they naturally feeling that if at such a
time, with n line of battle ship on ber
beam ends, clean paint work was of
paramount importance their condition
could not be a serious one.

Pioneer Crude Oil Burner Co.
Gentlemen After using one of your Burners for 6
drys, all I have to say is that it has furnished me the
most even, the cheapest and cleanest fire I have ever
used. I do not beleave any one would regret giving these
burners a trial.

The Baby Stare.
Have you ever sat opposite in bus
or train to n baby, say. from one to
two years old? If you have you have
been compelled to notice It. And un
less you are a misanthropical person
I guess you nave caught yourself feel
ing uncomfortable under Its wide eyed
scrutiny of you. I think there is noth
ing more disconcerting than to be re
jected by u baby after full aud open
cross examination. Babies and very
young children have no humbug about
them. 1 believe they see more than
grownups. 1 believe they rend our
characters down to the very ground.
While tbe young mother Is interested
to find that her baby is being admired
that baby Is reckoning up both tbe
mother and the admirer, and when tbe
Jerky turn of the head comes tbe man
that has music In his soul feels small.
The River Tinto.
There Is In Spain a river called tbe
Tinto, which has very extraordinary
qualities. Its waters, which are as
yellow as a topaz, harden the sand and
petrify it in a most surprising manner.
If a stone falls Into the river und rests
upon another tbey both become per
fectly united and conglutinated in a
year. It withers all the plauis on its
banks as well as tbe roots of trees,
which It dyes of the same hue ns its
waters. No fish live In its stream.
A Creature From the Fire.
Aristotle believed that some crea
tures were capable of supporting life
even though confined to tbe devouring
element. He says: "In Cyprus, when
tbe manufacturers of cbalcitis (lime)
burn It many days In tbe fire, a winged
creature something larger than a great
fly Is seen emerging from tne-tone
and leaping and walking about iu the
fire. These creatures perish Immedi
ately upon being removed from the
Life and a Living.
Many a man has made a good living
who has made a poor life. Some men
have made splendid lives who have
made very moderate and even scant)
