LOOKING FOR BEAUTY
Dusky Young Ruler Said to Bo Over
London, Nov. !). All Bin Hamond,
the youthful Sultan of Zanzibar, who
Is now touring Europe, Is said to be
on the lookout for possible additions
to his harem. The dusky ruler en
joys the distinction of having the
finest collection of female beauties in
the Orient. Rival harems, such as
those of the Sultan of Turkey and the
Shah of Persia, may bo more exten
sive, but All is credited with good
taste, and he does not leave the duty
of selection to a subordinate. Each
candidate for admission to his sera
glio receives the personal and critical
attention of tho youthful Sultan.
Turkish, Arabian, Circassian and
European beauties combine to make
the royal harem of Zanzibar the most
superb Institution of its kind tho
If reports be true, tho keeper of
the harem is pestered with an almost
endless stream of candidates. Several
Trench and English beauties are
known to be Inmates. And a star of
the Paris music halls, who myster
iously disappeared some years ago,
was traced to the door of the lux
urious splendor of eastern decoration
Tho sultan's own knowledge of
western life has made his harem
very different indeed from the or
dinary oriental seraglio. Tho lux
urious splendor of eastern decoration
has been toned down with occidental
good taste. Tho Inmates of the har
em themselves are given every privi
lege, and it is said that they are em
inently contented with their lot.

On a Rhino Steamboat.
The American tourist was sitting
on the upper deck of a Rhino steam
boat. As the squat paddle-wheeler
floated swiftly with the tide Cologne
ward, ho gazed raptly at the vine
"Think of it!" he mused. "What
a joy it must bo to have this splendor
at one's elbow. Living in West
Eighty-seventh street may ho luxur
ious In its way, but I tell you there is
an air of peace about this place that
,wo haven't got."
His gaze fastened upon a tall man
In a plaid ulster who was sitting near
by. Remarking upon his appearance,
"One thing tho men know over
liere.thoy know how to live. Look at
that middle-aged fellow. Tho very
picture of rugged health. No pale
faced nervousness about him. His
every line betokens a tranquility of
life that is way beyond riches. Take
me, for instanco; a nervous wreck at
43. This is my first vacation in
eighteen years. Daresay he takes
one three times a y.ear. Catch one of
my fellow citizens doing that! Find
me an American citizen of his age
looking like that!"
At that moment the stranger turn

ist returned his salutation and
opened conversation. "Das 1st

tho other with a smile.

"I wish I had known," said the lit
tle girl with her wisest little air. "I
could have told you better, mamma,
for it was only last Sunday that Miss
Holbrook warned us to put our trust
in tho Lord, and have no confidence
She'd Better Mind Her P's nnd Q's.
A little girl had been to bunaay
school for the first trae, and had been
much interested in tho lesson, which
had as its foundation the text, f'Put
your trust in the Lord, and place no
trust In princess."
About a week later when she re
turned from kindergarten sho found
her mother busy helping tho cook
prepare fruit to make jelly. She sat
down to watch they were too busy
to let her help and presently she
heard her mother give an impatient
"What Is It, mamma?" she asked.
"Oh, every one of those quinces Is

disappointed, for I bad counted on
them;I wanted to finish my Jelly today."
Chevalier a Better Coster.
Tho lady was a school teacher, who
was enjoying her first trip across tho
ocean. Sho was Journeying on a
steamship that touched at Dover,
England. As the big ship lay In tho
harbor a tender came out to tako off
tho passengers booked for London.
With the little boat came two English
newsies, who climbed to tho prome
nade deck and started to cry their
"All tho pypors," they shouted.
"Dyly Mylo, Telegraaff, Tribune! All
tho Amurrlcan cybles! All the ly-
test news from Amurrica for a fiver!"
It was tho school teacher's first
view of John Bull at homo. She lis

Trinidad Asphalt Lake, down In
the British West Indies, is one of tho
most remarkable and interesting for
mations over wrought by Damo Na
ture. It Is called the eighth wonder
of tho world.
Tho bed of tho lako is evidently tho
bowl-shaped depression about half a
mile in diameter.
Instead of being filled with water
this natural receptaclo contains a
mass of black viscous material na
Probably tho first questions you
are likely to ask aro: How did it got
there? Whero does It como from?
This lako is fed like many lakes of
water by subtorrannean springs, but
those springs, instead of giving forth
water aro tho media through which
tho asphalt comes up from tho inte
rior of the earth, whoso "internal
workings" aro responsible for tho
production of this peculiar matorlal
which has proven bo useful to civili
zation. Tho Barber Asphalt Paving Com
pany, Philadelphia, was among tho
first to recognize tho immense com
mercial valuo of asphalt and after
making repeated tosts of this mate
rial were 60 impressed with tho qual
ity of asphalt yielded by Trinidad
Lako that they secured control of
its output and have been bringing
this product to tho United States for
many years and adapting it to tho
uso of modern civilization.
One of tho most Important uses to
