lately received a curious document dated Island of Galita which Is In the Mediterranean oft the coast I of Africa about 50 miles from the French naval station of Bizerta The document reports a London paper Is signed by Giuseppe Darco and Implores the protection of his holiness for the writer his family and his fellow is landers all of whom the document states are faithful and loyal subjects Investigae tion made by a correspondent of La Trlbuna dl Roma has revealed a most IInteresting narrative not unlike that found in Dumas famous tale The Count of Monte Cristo The Island which In ancient times was called Calathe Is legally included in the French protectorate of Tunis Recently a French gunboat visited it with some engineers on board to see what possibilities it possessed for fortli fication The engineers found the Is land Inhabited by about 100 Italians ruled In a sort of patriarchal way by one Giuseppe Darco who claimed the sovereignty of the Island and refused to acknowledge the authority of France A report was duly made by the engineers 1 to the French resident in Tunis who in turn sent It to the Qua dOrsay He was ordered to conks a thorough investigation concerning Darco and his fellow islanders Darco according to his own story was forced to leave his native land as far back as 1850 when at the age of 20 and a member of the Giovane Italia he killed a political associate He managed to elude the police and one dark night he embarked in a small boat upon the Mediterranean hoping to reach Tu nis Winds and currents drove him upon tho shores of La Galltu He ex plored the Island and finally like Ed mond Dante of Monte Cristo fame he discovered a cavern where In a secret place he unearthed a treasure consist ing of the traditional bags of Spanish doubloons and dollars of marque as well as many silver coins of other coun tries all bearing dates in the latter part of the eighteenth century Evi dently the cave had been the hiding place of Barbary pirates prior to the conquest of Algiers by the French Dar co gathered a pocketful of the gold pieces and after a few days spent on the island managed to signal a passing ship and was taken to Tunis Thence he went to Naples where be changed the old money for current cash Next Darco purchased a small fishing sloop and returned to the island where ho packed up the remainder of the treas ure and disposed of it at different Med iterranean ports He then divided his time between La Galita and La Calle Algiers a place much frequented by fishermen from the Torre del Greco In the Bay of Naples At La Calle Darco married an Italian woman fought a col ctlonHof tgrl9u aryl inilrosnta carpenters tools and provisions and started for his treasure island and founded a family there Besides himself and his wife four relativestwo young Italians and their wivescorn- osedthe colony He now has 57 chil grandchildren and greatgrand children At the age of 73 Slgnore Darco IE energeticIor to acknowledge the authority of the resident general In Tunis The latter promised to leave the patriarch alone if he would only pay taxes This was re- usedf and while the Quay dOrsay meditating on the case Darco has appealed to PopS Plus X for protection GIFT NOW IS PRIZED Ibl1l1ulr Given to a Hop l r Carlyle tor U lnr Uls lutelli trenee The following story published In a London periodical can claim mor than one point of Interest My grandfather says the writer was very friendly with the sage of Chelsea and I frequently went In with messages or to see him during hla visits there On one occasion I waa sent out on an errand for Thomas Carlyle and being unable to get exactly what was required brought the nearest thing to it that I could get On my return after telling him I had not got the actual thing I was sent for but that I had brought instead something else as near to It as possible Carlyle produced a shilling which he gave me as he said Not because I had done as I was told which was only what I ought to do but becaus- I had used my intelligence On re turning home and telling my father about it I was very much disgusted when he told me not to spend the shilling but to have a hole made In It

cording to trNn York Sun 20 times as many peppers as it did 20 year ago The citys consumption of peppers now amounts to thousands of Barrels annually Then wo get green peppers no fSrom a much wider range of territory than formerly and wo have them practically the year around We get peppers In winter Iiom Cuba and we get a few from Porto Rico We naturally think of the pep per an a homely sort of a domestic garden product but those early pep pore that we get from Cuba come In small crates as carefully packed as peaches would be and they bring a high price They go principally to hotels and restaurants We get early peppers from Florida too and later some from Virginia around Norfolk and then as the sea son advances we begin to get peppers from New Jersey which is really the great source of our pepper supply There are sections of Jersey In which produce farmers matte a specialty of peppers plant them by the acre and raise great crops of them The enormous Increased local con sumptien of peppers in recent years is due in considerable measure to in creased demand from packers Peppers are now more extensively used than ever before in the preparation of condiments and sauces and there are New York packers of plcBea and preserves who would think nothing of buying peppers In hundred barrel lots But the great Increase in the demand comes In still greater measure from popnhlr r city especially who great consumers of all fruits and vegetables take with the rest of the green things they buy quantities of peppers eating pore or lets of the sweet peppers as they would fruit So the homely pepper once familiar to us in its stuffed and pickled form and known to us as a thing at regular but of limited sale has come to cut quite a figure as an item in the citys wholesale produce trade DRILLING A ROCK Rhythmic and ltarri Surely of Motion Exhibited by the Mu Who Mauls For rhythmic and unerring surety of motion commend me to three sturdy fellows boring a hole IB a piece of rock Maybe you have never watched ledgemen drilling rock so that you cannot exactly realize the physical skill necessary to do this thing the long practice of hand and eye required for it says the Lowell Citizen One man sits upon the rock which Is being drilled and holds with his hands between his knees the drill which is to pierce the rock Two companions stand above him and relentlessly raise and let fall their heavy hammers upon the drills head at a hairs breadth from his fingers A deviation of a fraction of an inch would mean a broken wrist or a maimed hand to this man He does not seem to think of it or of the pon derous hammers crashing through the air over his very head Before each stroke of the hammer descends he has to turn the drill in the hole so that the stroke will not bear twice in the same place for the hole must be bored round In order to insert the dy namite stick The perfect accord the I perfect rhythm of the motions of the three has a fascination Were they machines these men could not keep stricter time in this un ending turning of the drill under the ceaseless falling blows It is music rude and primeval if you will but music to an ear alive to musical tempo and rhythm Who knows but it was this harmony of successive blows of measured repeated blows upon resounding stone which first awoke primeval man to the musical value of sounds reiterated at stated and fixed Intervals I thought these things as I listened to the flawless tempo and rhythm achieved by my three ledgmen tempo and rhythm seldom attained by modern executants too recklessly fond of the tempo rubato I thought these things and there was no prehis wile gentleman around to rudely con tradict my surmisings on the awaken ing of music in the primeval soul Weald D pre a Clove Market I Mark

Vfco Settled the Wrtern Cuuutry The unpleasant and often perilous Journeys that the early settlers of the west were able to take to carry their produce to market or to procure provi sions are described in Pioneers of the West The writer tells of one occa sion when he and his 12yearold eon were going to mill There was a good deal of snoW on the ground and the weather was Intensely cold We were plodding along slowly be hind the wagon up over the hills to the north and on the divide says the author The snow was six or seven Inches deep and the track had not been broken for it was a road seldom traveled there being no settlers after we got up out of the little valley until we came near Oakdale away Into the adjoining coun ty Of course we used to call them roads but they were merely the grass and turf worn away where the horses or oxen walked with a ridge between two narrow black lines like a couple of snakes stretching and winding across miles of open prairie The snow made it very bard to walk and It was too cold to ride We tried to walk In the tracks of the oxen but that made It still harder We had gone but a few miles when our hands became so completely benumbed that all feeling left them We usually made our own mittens out of old cloth of which we would have two or three pairs sometimes one over another But for all that It was the hardest thing possible sometimes to keep them from freezing As the morning wore away we began to feel hungry and I never forget thesad plight we were in We had along with us some dry sodabiscuits cut in two with a little butter spread between in a common flourbag They occupied but a small space of course so we tied the bag In a knot instead of tying it with a string We tried to untie it but could not do so with our mittens on and cold as it was we took them off butnot with out some difficulty for our hands were nearly closed and neither of us seemed to have the least use of them We fumbled and tumbled for awhile but finding that we could not do it that way we held down the bag and pulled the knot apart with our teeth Raking out three or four of the biscuits which rattled al most like so many flint pebbles we held one up between our two fists and gnawed away at it in that way There being no settlers for many miles there was no place that we could put in and stay for a time and get thawed out as we used to say And that was the hardest part of it for one might manage to endure such a severe strain for an hour or so or for several hours but when it bad to be borne a whole day and perhaps away into the night it took considerable courage to keep up CRIMINALS DEFENSES Offender AirulBit be Law Seldom Over New Pleas la Their Own Behalf The world said one of the most distinguished criminal lawyers at the Chicago bar the other day relates the Tribune has moved In everything ex cept defenses My meaning LB not clear I mean to say that during the last hundred years or perhaps three or four hundred years the only class which has not progressed with the rest of the world is the criminal class They have improved their appli ances I know Burglars tools are better made now than they used to be Criminals know their trade better but once let them fall Into the hands of the police and they are as helpless as they would bJfre been had they been arrested during the nineteenth or even the eighteenth century The only three defenses that are used to any extent are those shopworn ones the alibi mistaken Identity and insanity Sit in any of the court rooms in the criminal court building on the North side and listen to the defenses that are made Examine these cases where the prisoner is guilty How does he de fend himself He tries to prove that he was not at the place where the crime was committed or he puts In the plea of insanity or he tries to prove that the witnesses against him should not believe their own eyes and that they took somebody else for him Judges on the bench have told me they would be startled out of their composure It a professional criminal was to try any other defense The alibi is the favorite It Is a saying in one part of town that a good alibi can be bought for 9250 Perhaps it Is its cheapness that recommends it but we lawyers are surprised that no I new defenses are ever conceived Geographical Mosaic An Italian nobleman has lately had the courtyard of his palace paved with slabs

used to write to her the rosiest letters of my progress and expectations 5alt used to cheer my gloomiest hours to see what lies I could put down on paper for the gratification and comfort o the little old lady One night when Ihalo t had any dinner I remember sending her a long letter about plans I was making to bring my little sister east and give her the education she oughtto have A few days before Christmas I got a letter In mothers own labored writing She said she knew I hankered for a taste of the fruit cake we lways had at home at Christmas time aud she had made a whole big one for toe and had shipped It by express I promised myself that with one of mothers nourishing fruit calies at hand I would be able to sustain mjSclfon the ort days and I sat in expectancy next day when the bell rang awl the maid came toiling up the two flights to tell me that there was a pacl S6ror me The expressman climbed up with a round parcel almost as big as a wash tub He held up the book for me to sign and remarked incidentally charges are 645 maam Mother had sent it collect all the way from the lit tle Kansas town Six fortyfive The fruit cake was as far beyond my reach as a Tiffany tiara So the expressman bore itaway while I muttered something about trapping into his office with the money as soon as I had been to the bank Ten I wrote a strictly private note to my little sis ter telling her to tear up any notice that might be sent to mother by the company telling her the parcel was un delivered I have an idea they have some such system Havent they Then I sat down and wrote a fresh letter to mother telling her how much I had enjoyed the cake and describing all the fictitious persons who had shared It with me and who sent their con gratulations to her on her skill as a cakemaker I ran out and mailed the letter and went back and cried myself to sleep Ii And that was the end of the cake asked one of the women at th table parratorThreetion sale of unclaimed express package- and

housekeeper who has discovered the value of the small towel In her household economics has something yet to learn it is only recently that they have been used to any extent In private families but their usefulness is making them increasingly popular says the Washington Star This Is the towel that has heretofore been known as the hotel size It is the small band towel that is used in large quantities in public places where many people use a towel only once A large towel would be inconvenient and alsleast twice the bulk to send to the laundryAll reasons which make the small towel valuable in public places makes it useful for the private house keeper who has many guests The towels she will use are of a birdseye linen hemstitched on the end A good quality will cost 25 cents They are pretty little towels soft for the hands and with an initial embroidered on the end They need not dread comparison with the larger towels in the linen closet Often the housekeeper marks thetlarger ones with the lettering in the Russian cross stitch The woman who considers her com plexion Is using the small towels not only for her guests but for her hands and face The birdseye linen Is soft for the skin which is often irritated by a heavier towel Then she can use as many as she pleases without feeling that she is making a deadly enemy of the laundress The woman who keeps her house dainty also makes use of small cakes of soap for guests They are not more than kilt the size of therordlnary cakes and cost a price small In pro- portIon By this means she is able to give each guest a fresh cake of coap without undue extravagance German Honey Love Cake Put two cupfuls of honey and 12 ounces saucepanQand slowly bring toaboll hrowlnfour ounces of chopped almonds with the skins left on

people writes the author of Little Japan In Gunton Magazine It Is fortunate in being a Island realm so that It cannot be at I tacked except tram the sea This Ii I view of Its powerful navy probably

enabled to gratify his tastes whenever be desired ays the Chicago Chronicle The good doc tor In his church services frequently led the singing of some old familiar hymn full of melody and inspiration

exclaim when be was ready toII start the hymn Everybody and with the exclamation everybody who could master a note of concord or dis cord would Join in with a wholesouled willingness that made the walls ofI the old church rtsound with melody that found Its way to the courts above Judge Delaney who generally chaperoned Dr Iunsford In his fox chases says they were out one night when nature was In her happiest moods and with a fine pick of dogs a trail was soon struck and in R few minutes the pick was going at full cry In a bend of the river six males around The logs soon passed out of hearing tile Judge drifting off to a place where lie Itsstrack and the park scattered Very soon one of they path came In hearing and rapidly was pursuing reynard in the direction where the doctor was last seen The other dogs were beginning to come In hearing on the hot trail of the fox being pursued by the single dog nnd the Judge turned his gallop down where the doctor was awaiting the re packowas giving when they went out of hearing into the river bend The Judge rode around a sharp declivity and came up unobserved closet to where the doctor was tiptoeing in his stirrups listening to the sharp ex cited mouthlngs of the single hound as he hotly pursued the fox Just then the main pack begun to draw near and the doctor rising to the utmost of his stirrup leathers raising his right hand high above his head sung out Every body The passing pack realized thit the preacher knew what was wanted end they closed up the gap between them and tho single dog and soon had reynard running for life and the preacher delighted that his church lingo was thoroughly understood by his fleetfooted friends of the kennel So it has come to pass In Bowling Green that whenever anybody raises I their right hand

property of an Italian prince who was also a priest of the church of Rome It gives one a feeling of awe to think of the deft fingers long since told in death that hundreds of years ago set in silver

Edward the Martyr But little idea can be given by a print ed description of the richness of the embroidery on the ancient robes They are bordered with yards upon yards of gold lace which If nut into the furnace would be resolved into a lump of virgin gold and so heavy are the embroideries with silver and gold that the rector confesses It to be no small burden to array himself in the gorgeous robes Stitch upon stitch of gold and silver thread set with microscopic precision were em ployed by the skillful workers to form the pattern with which the design is worked out And mingling with the gleaming metal are dainty flowers wrought in pale tints now softened at d blended by the touch of time The material which forms the background of this wealth of priceless handiwork Is pale gray satin

Study for Students fA bulletin recently Issued by Colorado college corrects the popular er ror that there are only a few kinds of bees Some people Indeed think that there are only threethe honey bee bumble bee and a smaller wild spo dos According to the authority just Quoted no less than 1878 different species of wild bees have been described from North Americathat is includ ing all of the country north of Panama up to the present day When one comes to study the habits and struc ture of all these bees says the New York Tribune it is possible to under stand why the varieties are so numor ousThe pollen of flowers has to be cnr ried principally by Insects that of one flower to other flowers of the same sort in order to bring about the fer tilization and production of seed Of all the Insect carriers the bees are the most important They visit the flow ers for nectar and pollen to store up In nests for their young When so doing they carry tho dustlike pollen from lower to flower leaving a little of that previously gathered each time they alight on a blossom Now suppose that all bees visited Indiscriminately every sort of flower it would continually happen that the pollen of one species of plant was left on the flower of a quite different species where It would be altogethei useless It Is desirable therefore that each kind of bee should visit one par ticular kind of plant or at any rate should prefer certain kinds This proves to be more or less the case and there are many bees that never visit more than one sort of flower The num ber of flowers Is very great and con sequently It is not surprising to find that there are many sorts of bees In numerous instances thto mouth part of the bees is exactly suited to the flowers they visit Thus certain kinds with very long tongues can suck the nectar from long tubular flowers such as the yellow flowered currant while others with short tongues can make use of shallow flowers It is the case of the fox and the stork over again Although the described North Amer assertedIof those existing Indeed it is not im possible that the North American con tinent with the West Indies possesses as many as 5000 species Thus the op portunity for the student of these insects is very great He is absolutely certain to find in almost any part of the country species wholly new to science during hie first seasons collecting In Colorado for instance It Is probable that almost any spring or summer flay devoted to the search would yield new Hinds In New Mexico up to today 505 species have been found and of those 315 can be called new The discovery and description new species are however only the beginning of the work After this comes the most interesting partthe study of the nesting habits and the relation between the bees and the flowers So the field becomes a very wide one and seems practically limitless While the oppor tunities for study are so great and of course open to all who have the time comparatively few can be expected to do much In aptology There Is no reason why many should not Interest themselves so far as to make collections or obtain specimens for the use of students but only a few will have the zeal Industry and patience to obtain a real grasp of the Subject There are at present only about 13 active students of bees In the United States and some of these have done very little NOT SO STRANGE

according to the Detroit Free Press Yes But It Isnt so strange after all when one stops to think of It replied his companion who had just returned from the orient People in hot countries who are not used to wearing shoes often use their tocs- In preference to their hands Filipino women for Instance carry paokages and often enormous bundles on their heads in such cases if anything falls off the head to the ground the women pick It up with their toes and then pass It along to the top of thelr head with the hand They can do this while keeping the body rigid and in that way ref n no risk of upsetting the basket or whatever IiS on the head Even the American babies in the orient use their toes in the same way It seems to be the natural thing to do Without the shoes the toes are tree and the baby uses them the way it uses Its fingers Why not It does not know anything about the su periority of the fingers and in a young child the toes are just as pli able and responsive Of course It is go much like a monkeys way of do ing that the mothers are sometimes frightened at the unusual accomplish meat of their offsprings But there Is nothing unnatural about It and a regular application of

sweet young thing Ive heard that you can telltwhat peoples characters are from their handwriting Here is a letter from my Aunt Rachel See if you can tell what kind of a woman she is by looking at her penmanship Prof McGoozle took the letter relates London TitBits and read Dear NieceYou ask me to come andI visit you this summer Now If I do we may as well have a plain understand ing at tho start I shall want a I with plenty of light and ventilation I and in some part of the house where I1 IJJ shall not be disturbed by the noise of the family You will have to send me my railway fare If I come as

smoke In the house The smell of tobacco is something I cant and wont standI Your affectionate aunt Rachel Then the professor looked searching tIy at the penmanship of the letter Well he said it Is not hard to describe your aunts peculiarities from a study of her chirography In the first place she Is elderly Next she Is close In money matters Third she is a woman of determined character with strong likes and dislikes and is disposed to have her own way about everything Lastly she Is what may be described colloquiI ally speaking as cranky Professor you have hit her off to dot exclaimed the sweet young thing enthusiastically i dont see how In the world you can do it- Planting Bulb Bulbs do not do their best when planted immediately around the roots of trees but they can be set close up to the stonework of a house with good effect They will also form pleasing borders for board and other walks and can be made to follow the curved outline of a carriage drive A narrow margin of between the driveway lawn should be left and the beds In warm gravelly soil on the south side of a house the bulbs will begin to grow toonerthan ifplanted elsewhere It Is best to give plenty sunlight although If

unfruitful land productive merely follows in the footsteps of ancient dynasties and adopts the ideas of in telligent men who have gone before writes Senator Francis E NewlandB ot Nevada in Youths Companion iI Forty yearn ago when the first husbandman was so pleased with a little Nevada valley hemmed In upon every by the great Sierra Nevadas that determined to build there his house logs and pastered mud and begin HI11 I irrigate the soil he did not think that upon the very ground which he chose would spring up a prosperous town of many thousand inhabitants I Ills work was very simple Turning- to the crystal Truckee he cut a large canal leading from the banks This he fitted with a sluicebox and dam so that he might control the flow of water his excavation From the larger canal smaller ditches were dug across the flat sagebrushcovered ground and i i these In turn were cut with smaller I channels Eventually his miniature system of lifebringing arteries covered many acres of seemingly unfertile soil He flooded the ground the sagebrush died he removed the rocks and bowlders and turned up the earth he planted tho seeds of vegetation and with an arid clImatea substantial guarantee against injury by flood and perfect control of the water supply a protection against loss of crops by droughthis crops became fruitful and multiplied far beyond his most sanguine expectations As the measure of value not in area but in capacity 20 acres of soil was equal to more than 50 acres In the eastern country he hall left be J This husbandman found also that the i land of sunshine was good for his health spirits Perpetual cheer from the heavens acts unconsciously upon ones 3 sumIulatlngI J tures sanitarium and as its fame spread j more settlers came to the banks the little stream and the colony irrigationists began to increase ofII At the same time others of more venturesome temperament found that I here also was natures treasurehouse I At Virginia City some 20 miles beyond the great brown mountains was unearthed a gold and silver vein of fabu lous wealth This was tbsr great Com- stock Lode and the eager adventurers l who crowded the streets of this town ht the name and fame of the valley to far distant ears These needed food and the farmer in the smiling valley soon had a market hungry for his products Thus the ranches few at first became numerous the

found In great richness and abundance This is the growth and development of only one small portion of the virgin west and it well illustrates the magni1 tude of its mineral and agricultural resources
