STRANGE COURT TRIAL
CHIMPANZEE IS DEFENDANT

"John" Pleads Guilty to Having Stolen
Sweets and Is Sentenced to Three
Months' Confinement in
The following strange incident is re
lated by Capt. George A. Briggs and
occurred during hie stay on the west
coast of Africa about ten years ago.
A chimpanzee named John, who was
owned by a high official, one day broke
from his chain and, strolling uncon
cernedly down the main thoroughfare,
scattered the crowds before him. A
native woman who was vending dain
ties dropped her tray and even for
getting her small child fled with the

of dainties and devoured them in a
most convincing manner. The child,
seeing all the sweets disappear, at
tacked the chimpanzee by the tail, but
a bite from the brute sent the child
yelling at the top of his lung power.
This so infuriated the natives that
they made a combined attack on John
and his lease of life would have been
cut short had not his owner appeared.
He faced the crowd and assured them
that every man would bo tendered his
due. For a similar offense he in
quired whether a man would not have
to stand his trial in court.
"Yah! Yah!" was the shout.
"Then," said John's owner, "let the
woman appear in court tomorrow with
the child and all the witnesses and

HANDLING LONDON'S LETTERS
Some Idea of the Big Force Require
In the Greet Poet
Sir Henry Tanner, principal archi
tect In his majesty's office of works,
gave an address before the Royal in
stitute of British Architects in Lon
don recently, describing In detail the
new general post office to be known
as King Edward's building.
As giving some idea of the magni
tude of the work there, he mentioned
that the removal of provincial mails
and of the parcels of Mount Pleasant
railroad to the main building required
700 of the force of 2,850 men,
leaving only 2,150 in the old build
ing, but there were at the date
of removal to King Edward's building
3,750 of all ranks, including 1,400
postmen. Meanwhile the force at
Mount Pleasant had increased from
2,850 to 4.550. These numbers were
exclusive of the temporary force em
ployed at Christmas.
The work dealt with per week was
as follows. Five and a half millions
of letters, etc., delivered in E. C.
district, and 3.500.000 to other dis
tricts of London and by certain provin
cial mails, and 3.500.000 dispatched to
foreign countries and the colonies:
in all, 12,500,000. weighing about 366
With regard to the cost of the new
building he found that if built in the
ordinary way with steel construction
the approximate cost, exclusive of fit
tings, etc.. would be 355,000. but if
in reinforced concrete 295.000 would
probably suffice. The latter figure
had proved to be correct, so that
there had been an approximate sav
ing of 60,000. and, apart from this,
considerable space had been gained
by the great reduction In wall thick
nesses. The general post office has fur
nished statistics of the Yuletide traf
fic, showing that all records were ex
ceeded in the huge 1910 Christmas
"post bag." The great office is
eqttipped with the very latest appli
ances, and all were working up to
their fullest capacity during Christ
mas week. To suit the great length
of the building electric "conveyers"
have been installed. A new and in
genious system for sorting newspa
pers was also successfully tried.
MUST WEAR DARK CLOTHES
An Absolute Requirement in Factories
Where Work Is Done With
Light suits of clothes are not favor
ed in factories where work Is done on
gold. In fact, in many such factories
a dark suit of clothes is absolutely re
quired and even a light waistcoat may
lose a man a job. The reason for this
Is that any stray grains of gold that
may get on the clothing can easily be
raught on a dark suit, while they might
get away from the establishment if
light clothes were worn.
That such a rule was enforced
among gold workers one man learned
recently when a Bohemian gold beater
applied to him for a helping hand. The
Hohemian said that he had only re
-entry come to this country, that he
had had a chance to obtain a good job
9t his trade, but that the place had
been refused him because he turned up
with a light coat and waistcoat on.
and they were the only clothes he
The man whom he approached was
struck by the story and offered to help
him out if it proved true. He went to
a down town factory with him and
round out that the man could have the
job if he presented himself within an
bour with the proper clothes on. Two
1 dollars enabled the man to rig himself
out in the dark coat and waistcoat to
go with ins dark trousers, and sure
enough he got the job.
"You may think this strange." said
the man at the factory, "but it means
quite a little to us. Every man's
rlothing is carefully examined when he
leaves here at night, and the gold
brushed off whenever we see any on
"It is impossible to hide even tiny
grains on a dark background, but take
a mixed or a light suit, and we might
easily lose quite mi amount of gold,
and gold isn't anything you want to
lose, even In small quantities."
Chicken Bones for Children.

had a great bulge in the middle, while
all about the bulge was a .lip like a

were not dun color, but black. The
bottom also was black, though much of
the black stuck to the pan.
Then the man tasted his cake. Yes.
