Stowaway brides are not as rare at
the barge office as one would believe.
It Is quite easy for a girl to slip aboard
an outgoing steamer and stow herself
In one of the bunks below decks, lying
quietly there until well at sea. A case
happened a little while ago. the girl
coming to meet her fiance here. As
both were poor, the former resorted to
this perilous expedient to accomplish
the desired end. Oue would think
that such a heroic endeavor would de
serve a better reception. But on arriv
ing, having been worked very hard on
shipboard for passage, worn and wor
ried almost to distraction, the maiden
was so changed by her ordeal of love
that when her betrothed met her be
refused to marry her. A few days
Inter, while being taken back to the
ship for deportation, she leaped Into
the bay. Rescued gallantly, she linger

Tbe Panama Hat.
"The cheapest straw hat to buy,"
said a man who owns a beauty, "is,
after all, a Panama, like this. Look
here." He took down his big white
hat, which was creased down the mid
dle like a pair of trousers, and rolled It
up tight; then he tossed It In the air.
With a cracking sound It spread open
and fluttered down to the floor In Its
original shape, deep center crease and
all. "You could soak this hat for a
week," he continued, "and Iron It out
flat afterward, but when you came to
put it on agalu It would be just as you
see It now.
"Women In ..Mexico and roundabout
all that region make the hats, using
straw that has been selected with more
care than 1 could tell you of. The art
has been handed down in their families
from one generation to another, and it
Is a secret art, unknown to auy other
people in the world.
"These women, living so far away
from everything, are ignorant of the
fashions, mid that Is why the hats
never change their ugly shape. If they j
were fashionably made, the demand
for them would be enormous. As It is,
hatters travel through all that country j
and buy them up at good prices. j
