Thousands' of acres of oysters are under  cultivation in Ilainpton Roads, which  during the ^harvesting season is often  literally' alive with the reaping machines of the oyster men.  When the oysters are from one and  a half to two years old they are- usually,large enough to be sold, and as a  rule part of them are sold at'this age  and'the balance in the third or fourth  'year, after which time the ground is  allowed to rest a year before being  planted a sain. Great 'care must be exercised in ihe selection of bottoms for  oyster planting if the planter would  ���������be financially successful.  The largest packer in Hampton opens  from-100.000 to 200,000'bushels of oys-'  tors in a year.    In' this house as the  men' open the  oysters  they drop  the  shells on an inclined plane, from which  they slide'into a trough and are1 carried  aloug by scrapers attached to an endless  chain, called .V "shell   conveyor,"  which takes them  without 'further ,1a-'  bor ,to the shell pile in the yard. When,  a shucker has filled his gallon measure,  he carries it1 to the strainer, where the  oysters   are   strained, and   measured.  They aro then emptied into large casks  kept full of fresh water, by means of  which any'loosc shell or grit is washed  out.    From chose casks the oysters are  dipped into a second strainer and when  separated  from'the   water are'again  measurediand packed. ;  " The shells'are sold for from 1,to 3  cents a-rbushel and are used extensively by oyster planters for the .propagation'of oysters. They* are placed in  small piles on grounds found suitable  for the purpose, where the spat or  small'oyster will attach itself to the  shells. They aro also used for making-  shell lime and 'for building the excellent shell-roads found-in some parts of  the   Virginia   peninsula.  !

'Kere'is an interesting, if somewhat'  "creepy,", story which reaches us from  a correspondent upon whose good faith  we -can rely: A certain young lady.,1  whom we will call Mary A., was recovering from illness. < The doctor had  declared her to be out of danger,,and  her friends and relatives were rejoicing in the fact. Nevertheless, Miss A'.,,  receiving a visit ono day from a sister,  gravely assured her that she was going  to die. The sister poohpoohed the idea  and treated it as an invalid's fancy.  Miss A., however, with the utmost'  -calmness, repeated heivstatement. She  was certain that she would die that  night and begged her sister to' fetch her  parents and other relatives to say good-  by. Thinking to humor her, the sister  complied. One person was absent from  this strange family gathering���������a brother, who was at 'sea and was expected  home in a week or two. "But it does  not matter," Miss A. quietly observed.  "I saw him last night in a dream and  said goodby to him in his cabin." -Before the sun rose again Miss A.'s prediction had come true; she was dead.  That, however,, is not the strangest  part of this weird story. When in due'  time tho sailor brother reached port be  was met by his other sister who began ^to tell hirn the sad news. "Ah,"  he interrupted, "you need not tell me!  Mary is dead. " I knew it; for she'eamo  to me one night in my dreams and told  me she was going to die and wanted to  say goodby." On comparing dates it  was found that tthe dreams were  dreamed on the selfsame night.���������London News.  FREE TRIAL  , ; f. Not a penny down.

SqYYQOYYQQYYOOYVOQYYOQYYOO  Tne Nephi stage carried no outside-  - passengers. Inside it accommodated  four comfortably and six uncdinforta*  bly. Consequently every one interested  in' any  particular  trip  of the  Nephi  \ stage hoped that the number of passengers would" be limited to four:  At Millstown, tbe half way station,  - the grinning face of tbe hostler was  thrust through the stage window, and'  the four passengers already' inside  groaned. They, knew the sign.  "Two passengers, gents.' Kindly git  t'getber," tbe hostler announced:   ���������  , The stage door was flung open. A  woman was a rarity along the Nephi  , stage line and a bride unheard of, yet  the first passenger to be������ceremoniously  ' thrust into their midst was 'very, evidently a bride. Had all other signs  failed, which they did not, there; wore  several kernels of rice, sticking to tbe  back of her veil.' The tall, thin,.spindle'  shanked young man who followed her  .  was, just as  evidently'a   bridegroom.  - Their clothing and manners proclaimed  " thereof the east and brand new.  -The bridegroom carried a suit case.  - which ho pushed to one side after'set- _  ��������� tling' his bride as comfortably as the  middle seat������perinitted. Then he lifted  his 'knees"be^wecn the passengers in-  front of him and looked solicitously at  his veiled bride "Tired,1 dearie Y" he"  asked.  '/Just a little, darling," she answered, t  toucbing his shoulder lightly with hers.  ,"Wasn't it just lovely tho way we got  away from them?", she continued.'   "I  thought" once they" would "really  find  out where we were going.   Wouldn't it  -have been 'terrible? But you were'such  a darling, you"���������   '        <  '-' There- was a suppressed snicker behind them.  One of tbe passengers facing   them ' gulped" and   crammed   his  mouth full of tobacco.5  "Chawf par'd-.  ner?" he asked, extending the package '  to', his seat companion, the fat storekeeper of-Alkali City.

Take me back���������can't you, darling?"1  The    bridegroom    shook    his    head.  "Don't be afraid, dearie. I'm with you.','  His  voice  sounded  weak  and tremu-  Jous.  One of the men behind him laughed,  and the bridegroom Hushed deeply and  made a reply which was unintelligibly  jumbled by tho rapid lurching of the  stage, which at that moment entered  the rougher sections of the road.  The sharp report of a pistol startled  the jostled passengers and brought the  stage to a stop with a suddenness  which jerked' tho bride into the arms  of trie storekeeper.  The smoking muzzle of a revolver  was thrust through the window, and a  voice exclaimed: "Hands up. Step outside, gents!"  No one hesitated. One after the other, with hands well up, tbe passengers  alighted and stood in line along the  roadside. The bride came last, and the  robber hesitated, astonished, as she  stepped down.  "Excuse mu, miss," he .exclaimed,  lifting his hat before he felt about the  men's clothes for weapons. "Sorry t'  disturb yeou, but business is business.  "Now, Tom," be continued.'addressing the driver, "my pardner," motioning to a second robber who stood holding the horses' heads, "will keep yeou  covered while I look inter things."  The driver laughed. "I'm afeared  yeou'r goin' t' be.disappointed this trip.  Black John. S' far as I know, there  ain't no treasure in this load."    .        ,>  The bride gave a faint cry, staggered  and toppled over into the arms of the  bridegroom, which, regardless of orders, came down to receive her.  The robber swore. "Keep yequr hands  up!" he cried, swinging around and  covering the line writh bis, revolver.  "Let th' tenderfoot look after th' gal.  She's only fainted."  He had pulled  several pieces out of  the stage when an unusual movement  behind   him   caused   him   to  turn   his ���������  head.   He looked directly into the muzzle of a forty-four, held by the bride.  "I've got you dead to rights, Black  John," a low voice whispered. "No  noise or I'll let loose."  The bridegroom held a similar weapon at the other robber, who, unconscious of the slight change in affairs,  was twitting the driver. "Now, Billy,  drop your gun!" the bridegroom called.  The man made an offensive movement. There was a flash, a sharp report, and the shattered revolver  dropped from the robber's hand.  "Hands way up. Billy, or it'll be you  next time!" the bridegroom command  ed as he walked over and relieved the  robber of his other' gun. "Now. you  fellows. Black John and Billy, get up  on the leaders blame quick. No parleying!"   '   ' .   ,  Black John glanced at the bride.  . "Come," she said.    "Get along.    My  husband   says -you've  got to  ride  a  leader."  The bridegroom swung himself on  one of the pole horses while the bride  stood in the roadway and held his gum  After he had mounted she lifted the  suit case out of the stage, handed it to  'the driver and then- climbed up ou the  box beside,him.      <  The������ driver frowned. "Teou--yeou  ain't goin'"��������� he began, but the situation was too novel for him, and he subsided into astonished silence as the  bride turned her vei'?d face toward  hiin- and suggested that h.jr husband  wanted him to drive on. lie cracked  -.his whip, and the stage stirted. <  .Progress was slow, and the stage was  so -late in' getting to Alkali Citv that  the entire population was lined uy in  front of the Palace hotol in ant.Coition of something out of the ordinary.  Their' expectations were more than realized when the stage drew up before  ��������� the door. ' '    ,     r  The bridegroom glanced over the upturned faces. '"Is Mr. Green' in the  crowd?"'he askefl.  A round faced,' excited little- man  stepped out of the crowd.  "Give him  the 'case,  dearie,"  called  the groom without taking his eyes olf  the 'robbers.   "Your cash is all O. K.,  Mr. Green."  ' ';Is the sheriff in. the crowd?"  "That's me, stranger," answered a  young giant.  .-' "Come around and get Black John  and Billy, Rice, sheriff. ��������� They haven't  any guns, but they have got legs, so  ,1'li keep 'em covered, till you're ready.  All right?'"'  "Yep!" replied the sheriff. ,' "  The bridegroom swung himself, to  the ground. "Come, dearie,"' he said  gently, holding up his hands.  The bride climbed down from !:er  seat and turned with him to face the  crowd.'  ' "Gentlemen." said'the groom, removing his hat' "my name's Archie Dunning, and this is my wife. We're on our  wedding tour," but I had to let in a litr  tie business to please the company. Is  there any outfit-in this town where we  can put up? My wife's tired. She held1  up Black John."   ,  ":- He laughed heartily, and, taking a  huge revolver which,the bride held, lie  "tossed  it  in   the   air  and  caught   it.  liiHere. sheriff," he cried; "catch.   She  "did if with that1."       "''    ������        '       \,  ���������.. The    sheriff    caught    the    revolver. ,  pointed it over the heads of the crowd'  and pulled-the trigger.   The hammer  ��������� snapped. <  The crowd roared hilariously and  rushed into1 the bar to drink the bride's  health, but the sheriff shook his head  and laid a detaining hand on the bridegroom's shoulder.  "Archie," he said impressively, "for  the best messenger in the state yeou  did er blame fool trick. S'posin' Black  John hadn't er got caught jis' so, it'd  been all day with yeou an' the gal."  "1 know it. sheriff, but she'made me  promise. She's got plenty of sand about  some things, but she's skittish about  handling a gun unless it's empty." Then  he dropped his voice to a whisper.  "But that's nothing compared to the  chances we took of going crazy acting  like jackasses so's those four mummies  of passengers would think ,we were  tenderfeet."  Drlnkingr  Toast.  The bit of toasted bread that was  deemed such an important ingredient  in many an old time drink was considered a morsel of, honor, and fell to the  one whose turn came last to sip from  the common cup. '  In Cromwell's time, so we read, a favorite toast of the cavaliers was to  put a crumb of bread in the glass and  before they drank to say, "God send  this crum-wcll down."  The very name toast calls up a host  of anecdotes that have been the very  essence of many u convival scene.  The well known one of tbe accomplished Judge Story at a dinner in honor of Everett's appointment as ambassador to the court of St. James is especially graceful.  "Genius���������sure to bo welcomed where  Everett goes'."  The next response to this was:  "Law. equity  and jurisprudence���������no  efforts can raise them above one Story."  ������������������������������������.-  Alpbonse Karr, one of the daintiest  of writers/once gave a toast at a dinner of physicians by proposing- "the  health to the sick."  Some  Odd   Spelling?.  Americans, says the London News,  employ the word "Britisher," which  they invented; in a contemptuous sense.  It was a certain Philadelphia wit who  is said to have asked his friends svhat  a "Britisher" wovjld mean to convey by  the written word "gboughphtheight-  teeau." He had to explain to them  that, according to the genius of the  English language, it meant "potato.  Thus: Gh���������p. as in "hiccough;" ough���������  o, as in "dough;" phth.-x. as in "phthisis;" eigh���������a, as in "neighbor;" tte���������t, as  in "gazette," and eau���������o, as in "beau."  This was at least as puzzling as the  livery stable keeper's bill which contained the two items:  ��������� Aosafada  ' Atacinonimomgin.  Nobody who does not "know the answer" has ever yet arrived (at the solution, which is, in the vernacular of the  creditor himself. "A 'oss 'alf a day"  and "A-takin' on 'im 'ome ag'in."

a Fierce  Striisslc. /  ', ^
' To walk in Coustantihople is like a
fierce and active struggle.- One should
look "at. once before, behind and,, underneath tone's feet. ,Somo ,danger or disgust is^ always.threatening. lfI- never
walked up'the steep "road- ;yvhich leads
Vrom the< bridge to- Pera 'without ,the

through a-hostile'city. A*-horn blows
'furiously, and a black 'man'runs up tlie
'hill,'clearing the way before-Jhe dashing.and struggling horses'of'the tram.
At "the same .moment a cab drives at
full speed down the hill, and the horses
set their feet on the pavement. In front
of you a man-balances slices of offal on
ia long pole across his shoulder. * They
dangle before and behind. He swings
cheerfully with his burden through the
crowd. A Kurd, stooping vunder a
weight higher than himself, follows,
step by step, behind'you. Your feet slip
in slushy mud.and catch on the cobbles
or in the gaps of the road.  Q
A dog with a red wound behind his
oar and a long strip of mangy skin'on
his back lies asleep in the middle of the
pavement. You step into the road to
avoid' the dogs and the hamals, and
wheels and horses are upon you. You
step back into the midst of the dogs
and'the hamals. xls you stand aside for
a moment a beggar with a' handless
arm rounded into a stump and a woman
with her face eaten away in tbe cavity
of the hood which she draws back be-
fore you appear suddenly, filling what
had seemed the only alley of escape.
The sun soaks down into the narrow
street The smell of the mud rises up
into your nostrils, mingled with those
unknown smells which iu Constantinople seem to ooze upward out of the
ground and steam outward from .every
door and window and pour out of every
alley aud rise like a cloud out of the
breath and sweat and foulness of the
people. ��� Arthur 'Eymous in Harper's
