At last he strode? beneath a lamp not
far away. He looked up, but of course
could not see ber against the dark wall.
For a long time he stood motionless beneath the light Sbe could not help seeing that he was dejected, tired, unhappy. His shoulders drooped, and there
wag a general air of listlessness about
tbe figure which had once been so full
of courage and of hope. The post light
fell directly upon his face. It was
somber, despondent, strained. He wore
the air of a prisoner. Her heart went
out to film like a flash. Tbe debonair
knight of the black patch was no more.
In his place there stood a sullen slave
to discipline.
"Baldos!" she called softly, her voice
penetrating the dripping air with the
clearness of a bell. He must have been
longing for the sound of It, for be started and looked eagerly In her direction.
His tall form straightened as be passed
his hand over his brow. It was but a
voice from his dream, he thought
"Aren't you afraid you'll get wet?" asked the same low, sweet voice, with the
suggestion of a laugh behind It With
long strides he crossed the pavement
and stood almost directly beneath her.
Tour highness!" he exclaimed gently, joyously. "What are you doing out
"Wondering, Baldos. Wondering
what you were thinking of as you
stood under the lamp over there."
"I was thinking of your highness," he
called up softly.
"No, no!" she protested.
"I, too, was wondering���wondering
what you were dreaming of as you
slept, for you should be asleep at this
hour, your highness, instead of standing out there in the rain."
"Baldos," she called down tremulously, "you don't like this work, do you?"
"It has nothing but darkness in it for
me. I never see tbe light of your eyes.
I never feel the"���
"Sh! You must not talk like that.
lfs not proper, and besides some one
may be listening. The night has a
thousand ears���or ls It eyes? But lis*
ten. Tomorrow you shall be restored to
your old duties. You surely cannot believe that I had anything to do with
the order which compels you to work
at this unholy hour."
"I was afraid you were punishing me
for my boldness. My heart has been
sore���you never can know how sore. I
was disgraced, dismissed, forgotten"���
"No, no; you were uot! You must not
say that. Go away now, Baldos. You
will ride with me tomorrow," she cried
nervously. "Please go to some place
"You forget that 1 am on guard," he
said, with a laugh. "But you are a wise
counselor. Is tho rain so pleasant to
"I have an umbrella," she protested.
"What are you doing?" she cried Iu
alarm. He was coming hand over hand
up the trellis work that inclosed the
lower veranda.
"I am coming to a place where I
won't get dripping wet," he called
softly. There was a dangerous ring in
his voice, and sbe drew back ia a
"You must not!" she cried desperately. "This is madness! Go down, sir!"
"I am happy enough to fly, but cannot. So I do the next best thing���I
climb to you." His arm was across the
atone railing by this time, and he was
panting from the exertion, not two
feet from where sbe crouched. "Just
one minute of heaven before I go back
to the shadows of earth. I am happy
again. Marlanx told me you had dis-
mlaaed me. I wonder what he holds in
reserve for me. I knew he lied, but it
ls not until now that I rejoice. Come,
you are to shield me from the rain."
"Oh, oh!" she gasped, overwhelmed
by his daring passion. "I should die
If any one saw you here." Yet she
spasmodically extended the umbrella
so that It covered him and left her out
in the drizzle.
"And so should I," responded he
softly. "Listen to me. For hours and
hours I have been longing for the dear
old hills in which you found me. I
���wanted to crawl out of Edelweiss and
lose myself forever In the rocks and
crags. Tonight when you saw me I
was trying to say goodby to you forever. I was trying to make up my
mind to desert I could not endure the
new order of things. You had cast
me off. My friends out there were
eager to have me with them. In the
city every one Is ready to call me a
spy���even yon, I thought Life was
black and drear. Now, my princess, it
Is as bright as heaven Itself."
"You must not talk like this," she
whispered helplessly. "You are making me sorry I culled to you."
"I should havo heard you If you had
only whispered, my rain princess. I
have no right to talk of love���I am a
vagabond, but I hnve a heart, and It is
��� bold one. Perhaps I dream that I am
here beside you���so near that I can
touch your face- but It Is the sweetest
of dreams. But for it I should have
left Edelweiss weeks ago. I shall never awaken from this dream. You cannot rob me of the Joys of dreaming."
Under the spell of his passion sbe
drew nearer to him as he clung strongly to tbe rail. The roses at her throat
came so close that be could bury his
face In tbem. Her hand touched his
cheek, and he kissed its palm again
and again, his wet lips stinging her
blood to the tips of her toes.
"Go   awuy,   please,"   she   Implored
faintly.*   "Don't you see that you must I
not stay here���now?"
"A rose, my princess���one rose to
kiss all  through  the long night," be I
whispered.     She  could  feel  his  eyes
burning Into ber heart    With  trem-
bling, hurried fingers sbe tore loose a j
rose.    He could not seize it with his j
hands because of the position he held, |
and she laughed tantalialngly.    Then
site, kissed it lirst aud Dressed It against '
tils'*uioutli. His lips and tcet'u closed
over the stem, aud the rose was his.
"There are thorns," she whispered
ever so softly.
"They are the riches of the poor," he
murmured, with difficulty, but she understood.
"Now, go," she said, drawing resolutely away. An Instant later his bead
disappeared below the rail. Peering
over the side, she saw his figure spring
easily to the ground, and then came the
rapid, steady trump as he went away
on bis dreary patrol.
"I couldn't bell) It," she was whispering to herself between joy aud shame.
Glancing instinctively out toward the
solitary lamp, she saw two men standing iu Its light. One of them was General Marlanx; the other she knew to
be the spy that watched Baldos. Her
heart sank like lead when she saw
that the two were peering Intently toward the blacony where she stood aud
where Baldos had clung but a moment
"/ should die if any one taw vou here."
If-1 jni- shrank back with a great
1^-^ dread ln her heart. Marlanx,
\lJ ot all men! Why was he In the
l_____J park at this hour of the night?
There could be but one answer, and
the very thought of It almost suffocated her. He was drawing the net with
his own hands, he was spying with his
own eyes. For a full minute It seemed
to her that her heart would stop beat-
there f* "Whiff had lie seen or heard ?
Involuntarily she peered over the rail
for a glimpse of Baldos. He had gone
out Into the darkness, missing the men
at the lamp post either by choice or
through pure good fortune. A throb of
thankfulness assailed ber heart. Sbe
was net thinking of her position, but
of his.
Again she drew stealthily away from
the rail, possessed of a ridiculous feeling that her form was as plain to the
vision as if it were broad daylight. The
tread of a man impelled ber to glance
below once more before fleeing to her
room. Marlanx was coming toward
the veranda. Sbe fled swiftly, pausing
at the window to lower the friendly
but forgotten umbrella. From below
came the sibilant hiss of a man seeking to attract ber attention. Once more
she stopped to listen. The "Hist!" waa
repeated, and then her own name was
called softly, but Imperatively. It was
beyond the power of woman to keep
from laughing. It struck her as Irresistibly funny that the Iron Count
should be standing out there In the
rain, signaling to her like a lovesick
boy. Once she was Inside, however, It
did not seem so amusing. Still, it gave
her an immense amount of satisfaction
to slam the windows loudly, as If ln
pure defiance. Then she closed tbe
blinds, shutting out the night completely.
Turning up the light at her dressing
table, she sat down in a state of sudden collapse. For a long time she
stared at her face ln the mirror. She
saw -the red of shame and embarrassment mount to her cheeks, and then
she covered her eyes*wlth her hands.
"Oh, what a fool you've been!" she
half sobbed, shrinking from the mirror
as if It were an accuser.
She prepared for bed with frantic
haste. Just as she was about to scramble ln and hide her face ln the pillows
�� shocking thought came to her. The
next Instant she was at the windows,
and the slats were closed with a rattle
like a volley of firearms. Then she
Jumped Into bed. She wondered If the
windows were locked. Out she sprang
again like a flash, and her little bare
feet scurried across the room, first *.
the windows and then to the door.
"Now I reckon I'm safe," she murmured a moment later, again getting
into bed. "I love to go to sleep with
the rain pattering outside like that.
Oh, dear, I'm so sorry he has to walk
all night In this rain. Poor fellow! I
wonder where he is now. Goodness!
It's raining cats and dogs!"
But ln spite of the rain she could not
go to sleep. Vague fears began to take
possession of her. Something dreadful
told her that Count Marlanx was on
the balcony and at her window, notwithstanding the ralnpour. The fear
became oppressive, maddening. She
felt the man's presence almost as
strongly as if he were In plain view.
He was there; she knew It.
Tho little revolver that had served her
so valiantly at the Inn of the Hawk
and Baven lay upon a stool near tbe
bedside every night. Consumed by the
fear that the window might open slowly at any moment she reached forth
nnd clutched the weapon. Then she
shrank back in the bed, her eyes fixed
upon the black space across tbe room.
For hours she shivered and waited for
the window to open, dozing away time
and agalif, only to"crime bUcITTO wake.
fulness with a start.
The next morning she confessed to
herself that her fears had been silly.
Her first act after breakfasting alone
In her room was to seek out Colonel
Quinnox, commander of the castle
guard. In her mind she was greatly
troubled over the fate of the bold
visitor of the night before. There was
a warm, red glow In her face and a
quick beat ln her-heart as she crossed
the parade ground. Vagabond though
he was he had conquered where princes
had failed. Her better Judgment told
her that she could be nothing to this
debonair knight of the road, yet her
heart stubbornly resisted all the arguments that her reason put forth.
Colonel Quinnox was pleasant, but
he could give Beverly no promise of
leniency in regard to Baldos. Instructions had come to hlm from General
Marlanx, and he could not set them
aside at will. Her plea that he might
once more be assigned to old time
duties found the colonel regretfully obdurate. Baldos could not ride with her
again until Marlanx withdrew the order which now obtained. Beverly swallowed her pride and resentment diplomatically, smiled her sweetest upon
the distressed colonel and marched defiantly back to the castle. Down ln her
rebellious, insulted heart Bhe was concocting all sorts of plans for revenge.
Chief among them was the terrible
overthrow of the Iron Count. Her wide
scope of vengeanco even contemplated
the destruction of Graustark If her end
could be obtained In no other way.
Full of these bittersweet thoughts,
she came to the castle doors before she
saw who was waiting for her upon the
great veranda. As she mounted the
steps, a preoccupied frown upon her
fair brow, General Marlanx, lean, crafty and confident, advanced to greet her.
The early hour was responsible for the
bright solitude which marked the place.
But few signs of life were in evidence
about the castle.
She stopped with a sharp exclamation of surprise. Then scorn and Indignation rushed ln to fill the place of astonishment. She faced the smiling old
inan with ansrer in her eyes.

Judging by the reports from Am*

there has been, along with Borne dis

outburst of Imperial feeling as a con

vocation of Canterbury, the Primate
of all  England  presiding.
A series of resolutions were passed
expressing profound regret and' indig
nation at the methods of administra
tion in the Congo Free State, declar
ing that the members of that house
felt keenly the burden that was cast
upon the conscience of England, as
one of the powers by whose consent
the Congo f'Vee State was established
and its neutrality guaranteed, and
statin.! that the gravest responsibility
will lie upon tbe consenting powerp
to bring to an end, in some way
abuses which are so crying, and which
may be of the most sinister effect
upon the relations between white and
colored races throughout the African
continent, and upon the work intrust

The Bishop of Southwark. in intro-

State began on commercial, philnn

British Government had considerable
responsibility for it, and there wnc
ample evidence that things had gone

Described as an Abomination.
| The Bishop of Birmingham spoke ir
"enernl sonport of what had fallen
from the Bishop of Sonthwnrk. and
the Bishon of London pleaded for increased British consular represents
tion in the Congo Free State. Thev
ought to be prepared to back up the
Government in any further step which
they might wish to take with the view
to wining awny this abomination
from the face of the earth.
The Primate, in summing up the
debate, said the House had discharg
ed an imperative duty in calling nt
tention to well-established facts. In
the last decade' we seemed to hnv
fallen into something which rivaled
it it did not exceed, the horrors ol
the old slave trade. He could not
suggest what diplomatic action ahould
be taken, but they desired the coun

about this matter that they did not
intend to let it alone.

When I began giving bim the Tablets
he was so thin and wasted that he
looked like a skeleton. His digestion
was poor *, he was constipated and
cried day and night. I got a box cf
Baby's Own Tablets nnd from the
first they did him a great deal of
good. His food digested better ; his
bowels worked regularly ; his sleep
was natural ; he stopped crying and
began to grow fat. I got another box
and am happy to say before they
were all used he was in perfect health
and is now a plump rugged child. I
always keep a box of Tablets in the
house and would advise other mothers
to do the same." The above is a fair

King's    Physician    Tells   of   Choked
Lungs and Other Ills.
How those who live in English cities where soft coal is burned are
pin so tied by the air tliey breathe has
been vividly described by Sir Frederick Treves, the King's surgeon, at
a meeting of the Coal Smoke Abatement Society. Tbe evil of smoke, with
fog, tbe product of smoke, in Loudon,
is so real that a society has been
formed to fight it. Sir Frederick stated that the London air in one of the
cleanest parts contains six tons of
smut to the square  mile.
Describing bow this affects the
lungs of Londoners, the famous surgeon said: "The lung of a young child
is a dainty pink. The lung of an
adult. If he lives in a city, is inky-
blue, thunder-cloud blue, marked by
patches and stripes of black. This is
I due absolutely and entirely to dirt
and chiefly to soot.
"Tli6 snot blocks up the interstices
of the lungs und chokes the bronchial

' surface to the very denths.
"The London fog kills people by
thousands. If no plant can live or

iiis will was read, il was found that
he had kept his word. He bad left a
snug sum of money, but before his
wife could touch it she had to agree
to the following conditions. Upon
every anniversary of her husband's
death, sho was to walk barefooted to
the market-place, and, standing there
with a lighted candle in her hand,
rend a written confessioii of how het
'iruel conduct bad shortened her hus-

Severe    Winter    Has    Meant    Heavy
Loss  In the  West.
The winter has been nn exceptionally hard one on the ranches ot Western Canada, and of the Northwestern
States. Th_ many reports of losses
on the range from storms have not
been exaggerated. Almost whole herds
and flocks have been decimated. One
rancher says that the loss will be
about 75 per cent. Out of 3.600 cattle
rounded up last fall by a prominent
Alberta man. only 400 can be counted this spring. Others are hit even
Where the ranchers had made better provision than the others, by a
good supply of hay, and some sheltering sheds, the losses are big enough
with all their care. Now is the time
that the destructive work of the past
winter is getting in its fullest show
ing. The weakened animals are dy
ing now in large numbers. Ranchers
are seeing their herds slowly dwindling from them, and the vision ->f
wealth are fading away as rapidly as
they come. The whole Canadian
ranch country is suffering a depression almost equal to the celebrated
year of 1902 among the New Mexican
Effect on Trade.
What effect will this have upon our
West, and upon the cattle trade of
Canada? This is a question not easily answered because of several subsidiary situation. Kansas cattle nev
er came through in better shape; the
sugar-beet factories are successfully
feeding their thousands. There is a
big supply in Ontario of feeders.
Against this we have the dearth of
good butchers' stuff in Ontario. Tbe
prevailing disposition to go into dairy
ing in many sections, owing tn the
good outlook for cheese, has had its
effect in the supplies of good cattle
Sheep are more plentiful throughout

In numbers also, although the latter
have not made the ratio of gain that
the recent good prices would warrant.
Demand  For Cattle.
Many people say that the demand
for shorthorn breeding stock in a few
months will take a joyouB turn, and
those who have laid in the good breeding type will have their innings. It
is true that the Angus and Hereford"
hnve obtained quite a hold on the
West, but there will be a tendenc*
in the future, in all probability, te
go in for smaller herds with better
care. These smaller holdings will demand more shorthorns than before
and it is because of this prospect that
many base their predictions.
Beef cattle ought to rise in value as
the season advances, but this is nn-
uncertain question. Butchers' cattle
will tend to be fairly good sale for
some time, and, taking all things into account, the outlook is not at all
pessimistic for the cattle breeder.
Reasons Why Ancient Fiddles Are Better Than New.
Fabulous prices are sometimes paid
for old violins, nud many an enthusiastic musician would part witb bis
lust dollur to possess one of the masterpieces of Stradivarius or Guarueri-
us or another of the famous makers of
a century or two ago.
The questioned superiority ef these
old and often buttered instruments bas
beeu variously ascribed to the peculiar
quality of the varnish used in their
construction, to the elasticity of tbe
wood employed and to the ripening and
Improving effects of age and long use.
Of late years, however, much credence has been given the suggestion
of an eminent authority that the real
cause of the superiority of the old Instruments Is due to a peculiar warping of the wood to a higher arch, a
buckling caused by the position of the
"F" holes aud sound post.
It might nt first thought be supposed that the same effect could be produced by giving nn equal arching to a
new instrument, but the effect. If attained, Is not permanent, because with
ago the arching Increases until too
great a degree of rigidity Is tbe result.
"Plugging" a Hotel Guest.
The hotel detective stepped out of
the elevator and walked over to the
"Well, I plugged him," he said.
"Plugged hlm? Who? What for?
Where did you hit him?" quickly asked
a friend who was standing by.
"Didn't hit him anywhere. Just
plugged the keyhole of bis door. Never hear of plugging before? When we
have a guest whom we suspect Is getting ready to leave without settling or
whose credit Is exhausted and fails to
settle up, we just wait till he leaves
his room nnd plug the keyhole In bis
door. Then be has to settle up or leave
his baggage. The plug fits over the
eud of a key. It is placed In tbe lock
and turned. The key Is then withdrawn, leaving the plug In the door."

State Care of Insane.
Ontario has done nobly in the care
of its sick and defective classes, but
too often the cry of economy has prevented the best results being attain
ed. In no department has this criticism had greater application than in
the 8tate management of the insane.
Too much attention has been paid to
the care rather than the cure of this
It is a matter of comment that nil

that recent and acute cases should bp
treated in small hospitals perfectlv
isolated from the large establishments for chronics.

The Doctors of Mount Clemens Institute Prove the Value of These Pills
in the Case of Mr. S. Harris, Government Inspector of Elevators of
Hamilton, Ont.
From the Star, Dundas, Ont.
We weie much pleased to see Mr.
S. Harris, the well known Government
inspectat of elevators of Hamilton, ln
Dundas the other day, greatly improved in health and appearance since
tlie last time we met him. As is
known to many of the Star readers,
Mr. Harris has recovered from a long
nnd severe illness, and is now quite
uble to nttend his usual duties. From
this long illness many predicted Mr.
Harris would never recover, and the
fact that he is once more able to go
around very nearly as spry as he did
before he was attacked, is little less
than marvellous to them.
In reply to our reporter, Mr. Harris related the early stages of the attack and subsequent sufferings which
he experienced, and while he did not
court publicity, decided that in the
public interest he would relate the
circumstances of this wonderful cure.
About fourteen months ago Mr. Harris woke up one morning with a stiff
neck; try as he would, and after applying all the remedies externally
that he could bear or think of, lie
was unable to get rid of it. Tbe stiffness moved to the spine and shoulders, then to his hips, until it made
almost a cripple of him, and it was
with extreme difficulty that be could
get out of bed at all. As for walking
it was out of the question with him.
The attack became so bad that he
was unable to put on either bis coat,
vest or hat. From time to time he
called in various medical men, none
of whom were able to give him much
relief. It was almost impossible for
him to raise his feet from the floor,
and all pronounced his a severe case
of muscular rheumatism, giving him
little encouragement as to his ultimate recovery. However, one medical
gentleman finally recommended the
baths, and as a last resort Mr. Harris decided to follow his advice, and
went to Mount Clemens, Mich. As
is customary with all patients, Mr.
Harris had to undergo a thorough
examination in order to determine if
the system can stand this rigorous
treatment. After several examinations
had been made as to Mr. Harris'
condition, the physicians there finally
decided that he was not suffering
from muscular rheumatism at all, but
that his ailment was of the nerves,
and told him tbat tbe baths would
do him little or no good; tbat he requited altogether different treatment.
Mr. Harris placed himself in the
hands of one of the physicians there,
and what seemed quite strange to
him, tbey did nothing for him but
administer medicine in the shape of
pills. Shortly after he commenced
this treatment ho began to
improve perceptibly, and his
appetite greatly improved. He
began to walk around slowly at first,
but soon was able to get around more
than he could for a year previous. He
was able to put on his coat and vest,
and began to feel like his former self.
His improvement was so rapid and
perceptible not only to himself, but to
others, that he was plied with alt
sorts of questions as to his wonderful
recovery. The medical attendant was
questioned as to the nature of the medicine which was being administered.
Much to the surprise of Mr. Harris
and other patients there, he was told
that it was a well known Canadian
remedy. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, and
wns advised to continue their use
for a time on his return home. Mr.
Harris is loud in his praise of the
wonderful curative qualities of
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, and
consented to make his case public in
the hope that he might benefit others
similarly afflicted. Mr. Harris has
long been a resident of Hamilton, being a well known builder of elevators,
as well as Government inspector of
the same, so that his.r.roniiiience and
well known integrity is evidence that
he is sincere in tbe statements he

Queer Custom of the Bagas Forehs of
French  Guinea.
The Bagus Forehs, who live In French
Guinea, quit lite In a manner anything
but com mon place. When a mau dies
ills wife and children do not lament
hlm. Instead they are angry at having
beeu tiliiiiitloneil. They prop the body
up against the bouse wltb the forked
biauch of a tree and Invite their
friends and relatives to come, all of
whom are furious that one of tbelr
own has left tbem. When all tbe guests
/have arrived tbe wife of the deceased
advances and addresses what was
once ber husband ln a way well calculated to seme bis ghost away from tbe
"There now, listen! You'd leave me,
would you? So you don't want to live
with me? Why do you do this way?
Haven't 1 always been n good wife to
you? Haven't I been a good mother to
your children? Haven't your rlee and
fish always been well cooked? Have
you anything to reproach me with?
Nothing. Then sball not you go? Coward! Traitor! You sball not leave
without receiving tbe correction that
such conduct deserves."
Then tho blows begin to rain down
iqiou the poor defenseless figure. Pres
eutly tbe tired wife gives pla**e to tbe
children, and tbey ln turn to tbe rein
lives aud friends, all of whom similarly abuse it. At length, with a natural
human Impulse, their fury speut. they
try to make tununds to the hapless
corpse. Tbey bathe It and bury It 11
meter deep inside tbe house, and each
day at the dinner hour tbe family
places on tbe tomb some grains of rice
and n little palm wine for refreshment
ef tbe soul sbould It return.
Tbat a a satisfactory cup-drawing result must
of necessity depend upon the quality used.

Where the Fore and After Beats the
Square Rigger.
The ability of the schooner to meet
the requirements of present day conditions, while the square riggers have
been found wanting, can be readily
understood when we take Into consideration the numerous advantages possessed by the fore und aft rig that are
essential to tbe ideal carrier.
Operating expense, thnt prime factor
hi all transportation problems, Is here
reduced to a minimum, for there is no
motive power so cheap as the free
winds of heaven nnd no other craft so
well adapted to utilize and control this
force. Tho sails are of bandy form
and can be readily bandied from the
deck hy n handful of men or with
steam power if desired. The schooner
can sail several points nearer the eye
of the wind than a square rigger ls
able to do.
Built on the old clipper model, they
sail like witches and owing to their
peculiar constructions can be readily
loaded and discharged. They require
.but little ballast and having no heavy
top hamper can, If necessary to the
trade, take on immense deck loads.
In the lumber traffic of the Taclfic
northwest we find these vessels leaving port with huge deck loads towering ten to fifteen feet above the rail.
Occasionally they get caught in a blow
and have to sacrifice a portion *f the
deck load, but where one meets such
a mishap dozens reach their designations safely and land their cargoes Intact.���James G. McCurdy ln Outing
It Was an Object Lesson on Playing
Cards With Strangers.
A card sharp well known to the
stewards of tbe great ocean liners was
a passenger on a recent trip across.
He received a Hue nt Queenstowu,
which had the effect of keeping him
out of the large games In tbe smoking
room. He contented himself with pe-
nuchle and bridge at 25 cents a hundred points. On tho evening before
lauding one of his bridge party, none
of whom knew that he was a professional witb a bad record, proposed
changing the game to poker. "It's
bad practice," said the card sharp, "to
play poker with strangers. There's too
much risk, but It's all right lu this
case." Tbo others said there was no
risk If n man had good sense and kept
his eyes open. The deal fell to the professional, nnd when cards bad been
drawn by each man he said: "Now
I'll show you how much you know.
Mr. A, you have the winning hand.
Mr. B, your three queens look good,
but what show have they against Mr.
C's four fives? And what good are
they against A's four kings? Does It

I dcnlt myself a straight flush." He

said: "Give the steward what I put In.

The Barbecue.
Tbe word "barbecue" ls derived from
tbe Spanish word "bnrbacao" and Is a
native Haitian term for a wooden
framework supporting meat or fish to
be smoked or dried over a fire. In
Its popular sense it means a largo social or political entertainment In the
open air at which sheep or oxen are
roasted whole aud all the feasting Is
ou a most liberal scale. Georgia Is
probably the native home of the barbecue and is called tbe Barbecue State.
Wbo prepared tbe first barbecue Is unknown. Doer, bear and other game
constituted tbo meat roasted in the
barbecues of fifty years ago.
The Butcher's Smock.
The butcher's smock wus blue. It
looked much neater than the white
smocks of his friends, all smeared witb

man, "ought to wear a blue smock.
Wby? Because dry blood won't show

a smock of this color It Is Invisible. 1

These tossed Into hot lard and taken

basket are the most palatable.
Queer Marriages.
In southern India marriage with inanimate objects Is not altogether unknown. A man who has lost two
wives and wishes to marry another
will go through a formal marriage
ceremony with a plantain tree, which
Is afterward cut down. This stands
for the third marriage, which ls considered inauspicious, and the man feels
free to make a fourth marriage with a
third woman.
