A COAL OF FIRE.
"H:'s a muff all round, onteide
school work, I'm enre. Can't play
cricket a little bit anyway," said Doug
"Ruraruv clothes be wears, eh? Hat
looks as if it bad come out of an old
clothes shop," said Frank Xewlyn.
"He's a sullen sort of beggar too. I
suppose he's proud of his poverty; some
fellows are like that, you know,"
George Marchant remarked.
All the three speakers were in the
sixth form at Denmark House, and the
boy they referred to was Herbert Grier
son, who bad just come to the school at
he beginning of this term.
It was Saturday afternoon of a warm
day in early summer, and the three
boys were strolling down toward the
bay, on the heights overlooking which
the Denmark House stood. When they
reached the beach, they found some half
dozen other boys ondresising prepara
tory to bathing. A large, broad beam
ed boat lay out in the bay. One or two
other boys were now in it; among the
rest Herbert Grierson.
"We'll swim out to those fellows and
have a dive from the boat," Donglass
Metcalfe said. In two minutes the
two were swimming toward the boat,
followed closely by Tippoo, Douglas'
terrier. Tbey scrambled into the boat
The others were now in the water, with
the exception of Grierson, who stood at
the bow ready to dive. His clothes lay
beside bim. with bis bat on the top. A
sadden spirit of mischief seized Doug
las. "Let's see if be is as good at swim
ming as be is at Virgil," be whispered
to his companions.
"Own up now, Douglas. You're a
bit jealous of Grierson. You're afraid
he's goiui? to run you bard for dux, old
chap," Xewlyn said.
"Oh, as to that, I don't care much
one way or the other," replied Met
calfe, with a show of carelessness. "But
I fancy I'm his match at swimming
anyhow. But we'll see in a minute or
As be spoke Douglas pretended to
stumble against Grierson's clothes, and
recovering himself struck the hat with
his band, and sent it spinning into the
"Hullo, that was jolly clumsy of
Be!" be exclaimed.
In a moment Grierson was in the
water after his bat, which the breeze
bad caught and carried to a consider
able distance out in the bay. Tippoo
was beiore him, however, and swim
ming toward the bat.
"Now then. He's got a pretty good
start. We'll see who reaches the hat
first But I must send that little ras
cal Tippoo back," said Metcalfe, who
was one of the best swimmers in the
school. He leaped into the water and
struck out with all bis strength in the
wake of Grierson.
All were now watching the chase of
the hat with interest and laughter and
cries of "Go it, Douglas," "Strike out,
Grierson," "The hat's going to win."
It was quite clear that Herbert Grier
son was a strong and expert swimmer.
For a little Douglas Metcalfe did not
gain a yard upon him, but presently
the onlookers could see that the spaco
between the two boys had narrowed.
Metcalfe was, in fact, doing bis very
best, and it was with keen sensation of
satisfaction and triumph that be at last
overtook and passed bis rival.
The hat was now floating a few yards
in front of Metcalfe. The chase of it
bad proved a harder one than had been
expected. Metcalfe and Grierson were
now far out in the bay, and of coarse
much beyond their depth. At this point
a strong current swept past the bay.
The River Gleam emptied itself into
the sea at the north born of the bay,
and this caused a current which set in
a transverse direction across the bay,
Both boys were by this time In the
center of this sea stream. Metcalfe's
hand closed upon the hat. It was bis
Intention to swim back with it toward
the boat and replace it upon the little
pile of clothes, and thus put a trium
phant finish to bis swimming feat.
Metcalfe was now facing toward the
shore again. Grierson bad turned too.
The latter was quito aware that Met
calfe had acted as be had done cot
to recover the lost hat and restore it to
its owner, but in order to prove his su-
! periority in swimming boforo the rest
of tlio boys. The latter raisinl a chwr
as they saw Motoalfo striking for the
land ajjain, hold i tic; the hat in bis hand.
Then they saw Metcalfe stop suddenly.
The arm Unit held the hat dropped and
disappeared below the water.
Grierson, now swimming a yard or
two behind Metcalfe, gave a few vigor
ous strokes which brought him long
side the latter. lint before ho could
stretch out a hand to prevent it Met
calfe's head went under. Grierson
dived at almost the same moment. The
boys in and around the boat held their
"Something's wrong with Douglas,
lie's taken cramp or something,"
George Marchant said.
A inimito went by, and they saw the
beads of both boys reappear, a yard or
two further out. Grierson was sup
porting Metcalfe with his right arm.
"I've cramp in my right leg and
arm," Metcalfe said in a hoarse, low
voice. "I'm afraid I can't swim a stroke
"All right, try to trwtd. water with
your other leg; it will help a little.
We'll be all right wheu we are once out
of thiscurreut, " Grierson replied quiet
! Yet Grierson knew that his task was
not going to prove au easy one. For a
few minutes he made little or no head
way. Metcalfe bung upon his arm al
most like a dead weight. Douglas whs
doing his ntunst to help himself, lint
it availed very little, for, besides the
cramp which had attacked him, be was
exhausted by his efforts at first to over
take and outstrip Grierson.
Grierson struggled on, his burden
impeding every stroke be made and
lessening its effect. The boy felt his
own strength ebbing fast. Unless be
got out of the current in a few minntea
more, he feared that all would be lost.
But be was making progress and could
set) that the distance between the boat
and himself was lessening.
"A minute more, and we shall be in
smooth water," he whispered hoarsely
As he spoke Grierson changed Met
calfe from his left arm to bis right and
used the left for swimming. This gave
him considerable ease and rest, and his
next few strokes were freer and more
vigorous. And now he felt the current
decidedly lessening in force. Fie sum
moned up all bia remaining energy in
one last effort, anil half a dozen more
strokes brought him free of the current.
The two boys were in calm water,
and now, too, they were met by George
Marchant and Frank Newlyn, who re
lieved Grierson of his burden and took
Metcalfe between them. In this order
they reached the boat There were
many outstretched arms to help them
in, and then the boat was towed to the
Dr. Metcalfe, the principal of Den
mark House and Douglas' father, was
not a little alarmed at what bad hap
pened, though he did not show it. Both
boys were immediately got to bed, and
prompt measures taken to restore
warmth and circulation to their chilled
and aching bodies. These had the de
sired effect; in a day or two both Grier
son and Metcalfe were back in class and
The latter took an early opportunity
of seeking Grierson alone.
"Ihave to thank yon very much,
Grierson," he said. "You saved my
life at the risk of your own; there's no
doubt about that. And the whole thing
was my fault too. I am very sorry.
Will you accept my 1 t thanks, and
try to forget my purt in the matter?
I'll never forget yours."
"Why, of course." Grierson replied,
and there the matter endud. New York

The little boy wus very much inter
ested in a picture that his sister bad
bad taken while at the seashore. It
was a picture that bad been taken " jnst
for the fun of the thing" and not for
distribution among her friends one of
those pictures that a girl keeps in her
own room where none but her intimates
may see it. This one showed the young
lady and her "dearest friend" on the
beach in bathing suits. Both of the
girls were pretty and had good figures
that the bathing suits showed to excel
lent advantage, but the picture seemed
to be a source of endless speculation to
"Did you and Mamie wear them togs
at the seashore?" he asked one day.
"Of course we did," she replied.
"Did you wear them short skirts and
stockin's so's you could go in bathing?"
"Certainly; what inukes you ask such

Smokeless Powder Ruins Gone.
There seem to be some very serious
drawbacks in the usefulness of the
smokeless powder, on which the mili
tary authorities of the world have ex
pended so much money lately. One of
the latest discovered of these is that in
some way it injures the guns in which
it is used. A French newspaper says
that the powder has done great damage
to the steel guns of the Italian army;
that at least 500 pieces of artillery have
been rendered practically useless by it.

A BIT OF RAINMAKINU.
Aa Kfrort In the Hebrides Island Thai
Was ttriuirul if Mneeesa.
Lieutenant Hoylu T. Somerville of
the English navy, who lived many
years in the Hebrides inlands, tells the
following interesting talo regurdliig the
I work of a professional native rain
; maker. Toward the end of the yar,
just after yam planting, there came an
unusual period of drought, so that an in
land tribe in the island of Ambrym
, went to its rainmaker and domntnted his
Immediate attention thereto,
I He at once set to work to weave a
sort of hurdle of the branches and
leaves of a tree famed for its rain pro
ducing qualities, which, being finished,
. was placed, with proper incantations,
at the bottom of what should have boon
a water hole in tho now parched bed of
, the mountain torrent There It was
then held In place with stones. Down
came the rHin; nor did It ceaso for 48
hours, by which time It bad become too
much ot a good thing. Boon the rain
producing bnrdle was quite 10 feet un
der water in the socthlng torrent, and
the people, much to their dismay, saw
that their yams and tho sut rounding
earth were beginning to wash away
down tho hillsides.
Tho lioutenant continues: "Now
mark what comes of fooling with the
elements! No man of tho hill country
was able to dive to the bottom of the
water hole to pull up the hurdle with
its weight of stones, so the merciless
rain still held on. At last tho shore na
tives, accustomed to swimming and div
ing, beard what the matter was, and
some of them coming to the assistance
the coinpt'llcr of the elements was re
covered from its watery bed and the
It is such a coiucldetico as this, hap
pening perhaps once tn a decade, which
causes this people, now thoroughly
Christianized, to n-fnso to give up their
rain doctors, although all other out
ward forms of rank superstition appear
to have been freely abandoned. Louis
Cracking of Tree.
The catalpa never shows the "sere
and yellow leaf" in autunm like the
sumac, bard maple, etc., for the rea
son that its leaves are caught in a
gTeen.uuripenod state by the first severe
frosts. In one night their bright green
is turned to a dingy black. This sud
den check gorges the cambium layer
and new wood of the stem with water.
An excess of water swells the proto
plasm of the cells to such an extent as
to rupture the inelastic bark, and in
trees where the cell structure of the
wood is not ripe the crack will extend
into the wood often with a noise like
an explosion. This often occurs in the
fall when it is not cold enough to stop
plowing. Sometimes we have much
loss in nursery In this way with varie
ties not fully ripe when the first frosts
come. Sometimes indeed it injures
very bardy varieties. In such cases the
swelling of the protoplasm comes from
the water absorbed at the ground sur
face when combined wet and cold come
together in autumn. The cracking of
cherries and pears comes from the same
cause that is, by absorbing water on
wet days, causing an expansion of the
protoplasm. With trees the best treat
ment is to cover the rupture with moist
clay and then wrap to exclude the air
as much as possible. Iowa State Reg
ister. The Crawfish and the ITee.
"Whenever I hear of a break in the
levee down in my district, I know that
nine chances to one crawfish have
caused it. The assertion may sound
slightly exaggerated, but it is a fact
nevertheless that the troublesome little
crawfish work more danger to the le
vees than does the water. On a big rise,
when the bed of the river is stretched
from embankment to embankment, tho
crawfish burrow into the levees and
live there in the moist earth. Tbey
multiply faster than maggots and loosen
op the earth worse than moles.
"The levee may be completely sodded
with grass and you see no external evi
dence of the damage going on within,
but when the next big rise comes you
will see It. I have frequently known
the water to break through the levee two
or three feet from the top.and you can at
tribute it to nothing but the destructive
work of crawfinh. This was particular
ly true of the break at O Hut's in IWd,
when a portion of the town of Green
ville was submerged. The builder of
the levee in the future will have to take
into account the crawfish as one of bis
most stubborn foes." St. Louis Globe
It may be said without exaggeration
that swearing forms an important fac
tor in the masculine vocabulary of
nearly every civilized nation. Great
writers like Shakespeare knew this. A
collection of Shakespearean oaths and
epithets with their etymology would
fill a volume. Shakespeare realized
that they were inseparable, from a faith
ful portrayal of virile human charac
ter; that no truthful picture of com
mon life would be possible without the
use of that strong vehement language
in which men express their emotions.
But conventionality forbids to nine
teenth century writers what the Eliza
bethan age not only tolerated, but ap
proved. Philadelphia Press.
Whistling on Shipboard.
If you want to see a disgusted man,
just whistle on shipboard before a sail
or. You never knew a sailor to whis
tle. He will tell you all about "whis
tling down the wind," but he could not
get up a pucker to save bis ship. You
remember that old story about a sea
captain who refused to take aboard a
woman who whistled, and knowing the
old superstition feared that with her
on board he would be sure of ship
wreck. I do not know how it is with
the captains of vessels now, for almost
every woman seems to know bow to
