Harare Dor In Newcastle.
In Newcastle. England, the mayor en
joys the privilege of once a year being
allowed to select and kiss any young
woman who tukes his fancy among
the coal city's Inhabitants. The kiss
la rather costly, however, for it Is thB
custom to present the young persou
kissed With a sovereign ($5), while a
further gift Is made her by the lady
mayoress, no doubt to disprove Jeal
ousy. The sheriff, not to be outdone,
also bestows a kiss upon a fair by
stander, at the same rate of expendi
ture. The occasion is known as Barge
day, when the mayor and corporation
proceed ln a procession of four gayly
decorated steamers and two old state
barges to claim the soil of the river
Tyue. Their Journey over, the mayor
stands upon the boundary stone, and it

X Famou Fair.
The annual fair at Stourbridge, near
Cambridge, England, was, It la claimed,
Instituted by Carausius, the rebel IW
man emperor of Britain, on Sept. 10,
A. D. 207. It certainly flourished oh
early as this, and British commerce Is
believed to have had Its first real boom
In consequence of tho reports carried
to the continent by foreign traders who
flocked to this world's fair. About a
thousand years later fltourbrldge fair
got a new lease of life from King John
for the benefit of a leper hospital, and
for eight centuries or more It was the
greatest fair in England;
