NOT A LOVE KNOT
’Bmbarraaalnff Bxprrlracc of a Wom-
an In a Street Car.
A handsomely dressed lady riding re-
cently In a crowded Amsterdam ave-„
nue car was fortunate enough to have
a seat, but when nearing her destina-
tion She noticed that the lacing of her
shoe was unfastened. It was the work
of a moment, but a very trying mo-
ment, to stoop down and knot it secure-
ly. When this was accomplished, her
hat veil readjusted and her gloves once
more carefully put on, it was time to
signal the conductor. This she did
and after two vain attempts to rise
looked around indignantly to find the
cause of her retarded movements. She
came face to face with a very iratq
gentleman who had been sitting next
“Madam, madam, where are you try-
ing to take me?” he demanded,
j “I—you!” she stammered. ,
“Yes. Look there!” He pointed to
the lloor, and in an Instant she had
grasped the situation. By mistake In
groping she had found the lacing of
his shoe, which she had taken for the
other end of her own. and had fasten-
ed them so carefully together that It
took the gentleman quite five minutes

Bis Bird That Displayed «■ Mark
Canning an an Apache Indian.
A well known hunter and taxidermist
tells this story of personal experience
in South Africa; It goes far beyond dis-
pelling a slander that has long clouded
the fair name of the ostrich:
' Arriving at one of the monster hills
of the white ant, I climbed upon It and
raised my observation glasses to my
eyes for a carefiil survey of the region. ‘
My first glance showed me, arising
from the dead level of the plain be-
yond, two objects, each having the
form of a capital S. These l knew
wore the heads and necks of two os-
triches. Though I believed they had
sighted me, I remained Immovable un-
til their necks were suddenly drawn
down to the level of the tops of the
bushes which screened their bodies.
Then I knew for a certainty that they
were aware of my presence aiul would
make a quick retreat.
“Without losing an Instant’s time 1
ran to the spot where the birds had
been standing and found their tracks.
Those I followed as far as they were
distinguishable and then took a course
which I believed the birds would nat-
urally follow. No sooner had 1 reached
the top of the ravine than 1 saw one of
the ostriches climbing the side bill. Es-'
tlmating the distance, I took sight uml
fired. The bail passed Immediately be-
tween his legs and struck in the sand
of the side hill behind him.
“In an Instant the bird darted away
like, an arrow In the direction of a
• small clump of bushes In the center of
an open space, 'that he would pause
behind this bush and then finally
emerge on the other side seemed cer-
tain, and 1 aimed to catch him as he
made a fresh £tort from behind the
thorn. He flew over the sand at a ter-
rific rate and reached the bushes. Then
•I waited fully five minutes for him to
emerge from his hiding, with my rifle
ready sighted so that I could pull the
trigger the second he reappeared, but
flnully went forward to rout him out.
When I reached the clump of bushes,
an examination of the sund showed
that the crafty old bird had shifted his
, course at a right angle, making the
turn so suddenly that his feet had
plowed up the sand for a distance of
several Inches. This wary tact had
placed the bushes between the bird
and myself, and he had made his way
to new cover while I was innocently
waiting for him on the other side of
the ambush. An Apache Indian could
not have executed this maneuver more
cleverly, and l smiled at myself for.

silly ostrich buries his bead in the

they will lie dormant almost indefinite-
ly. It Is perfectly hardy and comes to
perfection when planted in shallow
water with rich mud and full exposure
1 to the sun—simply naturalized in the
same environments that suit our native
water lily. Artificial ponds or cement
basins are often made for the accom-
modation of this and other water lilies,
j Such tanks should be two or three feet
deep and of any size and outline de-
sired. Twelve by twenty feet is a
nice size for the amateur. It Is beat to
plant the lilies in boxes, say thrqpreet
square and one foot deep, filled with
good rich soil and sunk in the'tank.
The lotus submits gracefully to cultl-
i vation In tubs. Ordinary half barrels

the roots (1 prefer roots to seed); then
fill tubs full of water and set In at
warm, sunny place. In winter remove,

\ In the face of foreign criticism and
| In the face of one’s own dismay at ex-
isting conditions with regard to di-
vorce, we still sympathize with the re-
tort administered to an alien critic of
our people who had declared In pri-
vate conversation that America seem-
ed to be afflicted with the disease of
prudishness. The answer was some-
what In these words (the incident oc-
curred several years ago): “Yes, prob-
ably it is true that Americans are
prudish; but, considering the revela-
tions that have recently taken place
concerning certain circles in London
and considering the condition of a good
part of the Parisian stage and of
French literature, I, for one, nru will-
ing that we should pay that price for
the knowledge that, on the whole.
Americans arc the decentest people in
regard to the relations of the sexes on
the face of the globe.”—Century.
Hon- Tropical Fraltn Arc Protected.
It may have struck you that most
tropical fruits have thick or hard or
nauseous rinds, which need to be torn
off before the monkeys or birds for
whose use they are intended cun get at
them and eat them. Our northern
strawberries, raspberries, currants and
whortleberries, developed with a sin-
gle eye to the pretty robins anil finches
of temperate climes, can be popped
Into the month whole and eaten as
they stand. They are meant for small
birds to devour and to disperse the
tiny undigested, nutlike seeds in return
for the bribe of the soft pulp that sur-
rounds them. But it Is quite otherwise
with oranges, shaddocks, bananas,
plantains, mangoes and pineapples.
Those great tropical fruits can only be
eaten properly after stripping off the
hard and often acrid rind that guards
and preserves them.
They lay themselves out for disper
sion by monkeys, toucans and other
relatively large and powerful fruit eat-
ers, and the rind is put there as a bar-
rier against small thieves who would
rob the sweet pulp, but be absolutely
incapable of- carrying away and dis-
persing the large and richly stored
seeds it covers.—Cornhill Magazine.

Dr. Johuaon'a Marvelous Memory.
Hr. Johnson, the Ursa Major of Eng-
lish literature, had a prodigious mem-
ory and at one period of his life
employed It In reporting parliamentary
debates. Once Dr. Hawkesworth read
*to him a poem which he intended to
publish and asked his opinion of it.
“Why, sir,” said Johnson, “I cannot
well determine on a first hearing. Bead
it again.” Hawkesworth complied.
The next morning, the subject of the
poem being resumed, Johnson said he
had but one objection to it, that he
doubted its originality, and to prove
his statement repeated the whole poem,
with the exception of a few lines,
which so alarmed Hawkesworth that
he declared he WQiJld,. ofiyer.agaiu read
