BECCARS' TRICKS. How tho Public arc Diaaicd. If an observant person were asked (o say what is the most ingenious class of persons, he would answer, "It's beir gars." Countless are the cunning devices employed by those harp.;es upon civi- | Iisation to drain the pockets of passers - by, many of whom are poorer than themse'ves, If the same shrewdness «ind ii.ertncss were used in legitimate cl\anuc»s these cunning beggnrs mi^ht become useful members of society and wealthy and honoured citizens.

A story is related of an a.nbitious gentleman, who, rather unwisely stood as a candidate for some officfe, and who at the close of the poll was *or,ud to have received only one vote.,- The can didate was excessively mortified, and, to increase his chagrin, his neighbours talked as if it were a master of course that ho had given that one vote him self. This annoyed him so much that he offered a two-and-a-half guinea suit of clothes to his only supportor if the in dividual would come forward and de clare himself. An Irishman responded to this ap peal, proved his claim,, and called^ for the roward. \ "How did it happen?" inquired tho candidate, taken quite by surprise. "How did it happen that you voted for me?" The Hibernian hesitated, but only being'pressed, he answered: "If Oi tell yez, ye won't go back on tho suit o' clothes?" "Oh, no. I promise that you shall have the suit, anyhow." "Faix, then, yer 'anncr," replied Pat, "shure Oi made a mistake in tho ballot-p...

Con signments such as asphait, vegetable fibre, sugar, and wheat hr.ve resulted' in strange complications because of their presence in the hold. When the Italian .barque Rebecca weighed anchor in a Western Algeria province, she was loaded w'th vege table fibre. After leaving Gibraltar, coid and b'ustery weather was encoun tered. fol'owed by north-east gales, which eventually swept the barque into the torrid regions of the equator. Then *'te wind died utterly, and she remained becalmed for' many days. The intense .oat soon brought about some curious developments. The vegetab e fibre be gan to sprout. Small Wades appeared in the deck seams. The captain immediately ordered the hold to be examined. The contents of the fore hatch resembled a botanical garden.
