¡BP : sir 11 ¡$ i it' i Ü - WELCOME THE LOAFER. A NEARLY PERFECT CLOCK. Native South African Hospitality That The Wonderful Timepiece In Uncle Is Oftsn Abused. In South Africa, among the na- tives, there is a custom which has never been mentioned by any trav- eler in his tales. In the Transkei. Basutoland and Bechuanaland, near- ly every fair sized village has a field set apart for strangers. In u village where the king resides usual- ly his chief wife is told off to culti- vate this field and to store away all the product in the upper part of her hut, and if in any adjacent village some chief woman is sad- dled with the work. No man of the tribe is permitted to touch any food thus stored. The king's wife, or whoever culti- vates the land, takes her share of Sam's Naval Observatory, Although there is no perfect clock, the one that nearest ap- proaches perfection in this country, the standard clock of the United States, is kept in a glass case in a dark underground vault in the Na- v...

I! ¿7 OUR JOHN. Written for the Courier. Our John is coming home I hear, Sounds like coming home to stay. The weeks and months and days that's past I really cannot say, But our John is coming home to stay. I see him through my tears. The face and form that vanished The while has seemed like years. When everything stopped still at home. With no one to appeal, I'd think if John could step and put His shoulder to the wheel The mills of the gods would grind again, Where they went uncommon slow. Like stagnate waters in the pond. And fish were getting low. Our John with face a little brown And wet from honest toil, He's like a diamond in the rough. At home to till the soil, And sing the old familiar songs We used to sing together, When he a boy so full of joy He'd never mind the weather. Our John so few would think to praise Or ever lack for that, Where others see the sterling worth Beneath a broad brim hat. The dogs will bark a music like And nothing seems alone, All nature dons her Sund...

Eugene Delacroix, founder of the French romantic school of art, was very poor in his youth. His first picture of note was his "Dante and Vergil," painted when he was only twenty years old. It was extreme- ly large, containing several figures the size of life, and to buy the can - vas and colors took all the money Delacroix had. A frame was out of the question, but a good natured carpenter gave the young artist four strips of lath, of which Dela- croix made a rude framework for^ his masterpiece, which he then 6ent to the salon. But he had hardly a hope that his picture would be ac- cepted. On opening day Delacroix went to the salon, but failed to find his painting. He was...

%ML • i FREAK OF A WRECK AT SEA. Singular Drift of a Ship That Was Cut Completely In Two. In June, 1892, the German steam- ship Trave and the ship Fred B. Taylor were in collision about 100 miles southeast of Nantucket, and the Taylor was completely cut in 'two, so that the bow and the stern parts floated apart. That was a singular thing* in itself, but the sub- sequent behavior of the divided halves was more singular still. Since they floated in a part of the ocean that is much frequented each sec- tion of the Taylor was sighted more than a score of times by passing vessels within a few weeks after the accident, and the compilers of the pilot charts at Washington took advantage of that fact to trace the different courses carefully. Contrary to all probability, the RACE OF THE REAPERS. Muacular Feat That Made William N. Whiteley Famous.

be ' ií- "L- ,, Native* Uaod to Pan the Streets Quibdo For Platinum. Under the primitive mining con- ditions of today the Choco district of Colombia stands second only to Eussia as a producer of platinum. Most of the gold and platinum ex- ported are obtained by native wo- men, working two or three hours per day. They use the antiquated ground sluicing process as a pre- liminary to get rid of the coarser gravels and then with their "bateas" separate the metals from the sand and gravel. The batea is a wooden pan, shap- ed like a very shallow inverted cone, eighteen inches in diameter and three inches deep at the ccnter, with two small handles or knobs on the rim. The women handle the bateas with great dexterity, throwing off the gravel and sand by a rotary mo- tion and leaving the gold and plati- num dust in the Cotaimon center. Another method of mining that is extensively employed by these wo- men is diving into three or four feet of water for the sand and gravel containing the metal...

There is a story that Lieutenant Guy. Preston saved his men at the fight at Wounded Knéé by thinking of the sentiment of the old proverb. He was holding his men in the line before the Indians fired. Every one was looking for trouble of some gmk kind, but it was the unexpected 'that happened. The Indians were hovering about •with their blankets around them when the signal was given by one of them, and in an instant every buck threw'away his blanket and stood revealed with a gun in his hand. The redskins fired. They had ev- ery advantage of the soldiers, even without counting the surprise. And the soldiers ran....
