It is an cany and wry profitable
business to smuggle rifle into Moroc
co. A wttapon may lj lnju;rlit in
Gibraltar for $10 and sold in tlio in
terior for five or six times that sum.
Fumxglers are continually running
over in feluccas and beachfng thoe
arms somewhere between Vum Kiiur-
tol and Tangier, and curious are the
devices by which they accomplish
uii'ir transport .
t)ne smuggler told a traveler that
he ran his cargo into Tangier bay
after dark and unloaded the rifh-s
on the beach not a quarter of a mile
twin Uie custom houao.
"Who assists you in unloading!"

"I generally employ the Dorters
of the custom house," was the inno-
oent reply.
Tlicn, noting tlio surprise and
amuwment of his hearers, lie added:
"nicy are more skilled in onload-
tng tban other laborers."
It hail evidently neither occurred
to him nor to the porters that they

Hypnollam and HvnlUlrjr.
For a quarter of a century I have
been hoping that the prineinlea of
hypnotism as now devclojic! might
be applied so as to bring relief to pa
tients durwgdental operations. It is
with pleasure that I am able today to
report a pronounced success in that di-
rectum- a success that I believe will
continue, and the methods will be so
formulated that the art will be with
in the reach of every intelligent op
erator on tlio human teeth. I found
thut it was the opinion of writers on
hypnotism that jmin would always
wake a patiwit from the hypnotic
sleep unless such patient was In a
somnambulistic condition. I felt it
might be quite possible to derive dis
tinct benefit in the lighter stain if
they could lie kept continuous. I
soon belle vel it possible, und after a
uillgvut study of Bornhchn I com
monoed to hypnotic, and my first
effort proved a success. -Thomas

In Washington a man may place
his good old brier pipe in bis shapely
mouth and walk around town smok
ing according to the dictate of hi
own conscience, none daring to make
him afraid. It ia not so in all part
of the country. There are place
where such conduct would bring his
under police surveillance and cause
him to be ostracized by sod sty.
There haa long been a deep rooted
prejudice against the pipe. A man
might appear in public smoking a
cigar that would cause horses to
swoon three block away and nobody
would say anytiiiug, but if he smoked
a pipe on the streets his social doom
was sealed. Reason, however, haa

the barriers of superstition and con

The following is told by a pastor of
a village church about eight mile
from Boston. He was sitting in his
library one evening recently when a
knock 00 the door came. He an-.
swered and found a couple who de
sired to be united in matrimony.
The pastor asked them into bis par
lor and performed the marriage cere
mony , after which the groom hand
ed him a sealed envelope supposed to
have contained the usual Compensa
tion The happy couple departed,
and the reverend gentleman opened
the envelope and found the follow
ing note:
"If she turns out as well as I think
she will. 1 will come back and pay
