camp in a high hill. Both signal
flags and the heliograph are used
in transmitting messages."

Chance fer Taakees ia Yeaenela.
Louis Goldschimdt, the United
States consul at La Guayra,
jays that in the whole of Venezuela
there is not an American dry good*
store, this branch of business being
controlled almost exclusively by Ger-
mans, French or native Venezuelans.
European manufacturers also seem
to be able to book large orders among
the wealthier classes there, although
there is no reason why a lively Amer-
ican firm could not outclass any
European merchant represented in
the country. Great care should be
taken, says the consul, to make the
packages or bales as light as possi-
ble. Articles of a dissimilar classi-
fication never should be put up in
the fame package or bale, as the
whole is sure to be assessed for duty
according to the goods on which the
highest rate is demanded.
Wants Pension for Wearing Medal.
Congressman Tom Fitzpstrick, o|
Kentucky, told a pension story the
other day. He received a letter from
a woman in his district, who asked
that he Iteeome interested in her ap-
plication for a pension. She said
that when the war broke out sha
was engaged to a young fanner boy
who went to tho front. Before he
left he gave her a medal to wear,
lie was killed, and^incc that time
she has been married twice and has
raised two families. But she netcr
could forget tho blue-oyed farmer
boy, and has always worn his medal.
She thinks this entitles her to a pen-
sion. and asked Mr. Fitzpatrick to
carry the matter to the attention of
H. Clay Evans, commissioner.

"Worn a* Banks" Pay Well.
Bankers find that catering to the

The first New York institution that
made a specialty of woman's ac-
counts was tho Second National
bank, underneath the Fifth Avenue
hotel, the originator being Joseph
8. Case, then paying teller, now cash
ier. At his suggestion, in 1869, a
parlor was set aside for the sex, with
windows communicating with him-
self, the receiving teller and the
bookkeeper. A few years ago the
Fifth Avenue bank was organized,
with a capital of $100,000, making
a bid for business at No. 530 Fifth
arenue. Nothing in the history oi
financial institutions has surpassed
its achievements. Swell womqp
'with "pin and pickle" money flocked
there, and wealthy widows with
"roll#' became large depositors. To-
day this small affair is one of the
big-little things of New York, ti
has a surplus of $1,211,000 and de-
pouts oi nearly $9,000,000. You
could not buy a share of its stock

! "The Day of the Bangs," January
5, represents in Puerto Sico what
Christmas does in the United States,
except that the method of soliciting
gifts, which are called "Aguinal.
does," is different. In Puerto Bico
the children place their shoes on the
porch or window, together with a
pasteboard box filled with grass.
'The grass is supposed to be for the
hungry mules on which the three
wise men rode to Bethlehem. Aftei
the little Puerto Bicans have taken
their toys, candies, etc., out of tho
boxes they find at the bottom a let-
ter written in red ink and signed by
one of the kings, Melchor, Caspar oi
Baltazar, in which is it stated that
as the child to whom the letter is
addressed has been rather naughty
during the past year, the king doesn't
think it proper & give him or her
anything better than the present left
in the "box; nevertheless, if in the
coming year the child shall behave
better the presents will he more val-
uable. It is added in a footnot<
that the mules felt ugly end would
not eat the grass because of some
little sins committed fry the children.
