HUGE 8TATUE OF BUDDHA.
Ximntlb Rrllnlf Timtrm mt
' Ha ag a a, Burma. '
To the fastens traveler the statue of
Buddha In familiar sight : From
Colombo, Is Ceylon, to Kobe, In Japan,
be 1 everywhere greete4 by th tame
calm, Impassive and mysterioua fact
of the eastern preceptor of perfection.
But In no city In tbe orient do tbs
form and fact of Buddba constitute
lo frequent or so essential a part of tbe
city decoration as In Bangun, Bar
ma, starting place of Mr. Kipling's
famous "icoad to Hands lay," tht
stronghold pf . Buddhist. Notable
even among the countless statue of
Uangun la the mammoth Buddha, rep
resenting the strange teacher , not
standing or sitting crotalegged, as In
the majority of statues, but reclining
on a huge raked couch, bis mighty
form stretched out for 200 feet, while
bis shoulders "rival the width of that
wonder of the ancient world, the Colo
tus of .Rhodes, their titanic breadth
reaching fifty feet - -
But one among tbe wonders of Baa
gun, this mighty figure rest near tho
famous Bboay Dagon, the center of the
Burmese Buddhist world, crowned by
the golden pagoda, which lines 800 ft
above it, its walls covered with sort
gold, the gift of a prince who contrib
uted his weight in gold to the pagoda.
In the Bboay Dagon there are countless
other statues of Buddha, as well as
relict of Uauuma, tho last Buddha.
All, equally with the huge reclining
Buddha, form a part of the rellgiona
rites of the BnddhUu, for the et
aenct of Buddhism consUt In the
strangle to become like Buddba, to at
tain els perfection by obedience to Us
precepts. To do this It la necessary al
ways to have Buddha in mind, and It
la for this reason that every city In the
Buddhist world it literally crowded
with hla images. Buddha himself la
not deified. Potentially every Bud
dhist may attain hla perfection, b
only by the eternal imitation of bin
practice. "' ;
But, while ttatues such as Rangnn't
huge colossus art Important in Bud
dhist worship, of even more Important
art the relict of Buddba.
' It whs about the Bhoay Dagon that
the Burmese made their laat oarce fight
when the British came to Bsogun.. A
Venetian traveler of 30Q yea, ago vis
iting the Shoay Dagon has left a de
scription of tlds; famous temple; cob
ceding Ipi cU?a( to rivalry,' with Ids
own Venice, 'that would Wvt aa a cbo -temporaneous
description, and today,
as in, untold oratturiet pant, the, Bur
mese stOl bring their offerings of flow
ers and fruit,' candle and paper flAga,
to lay before the huge reclining' Bod
flha, whose hands would afford com
fortable standing room for" four of the
worshipers' and whose gigantic face
wears the strange, inscrutable expres
sion of calm which Is' the outward
mark of spiritual Buddhism. New

The original name of the turkey wa
oocoocoo, by which it waa known by
the native Cherokee Indiana. It la tup
posed that our pilgrim fathers, roam
ing through the 'woods In search of
game for their first Thanksgiving
spread, heard the oocoocoo calling in
the familiar tones of our domesticated
fowl, Turk, turk, turk." These first
Yankee huntsmen, mistaking this
frightened cry of the bird for its real
song, Immediately labeled it "turkey,"
and turkey it Is to this day. Much
more beautiful and musical waa the
Indian name oocoocoo, the notea pe
culiar to the flock when sunning them
selves in perfect content on tbe river

The truthful story Is told In Missouri
that the throwing1 of a broad brimmed
bat to tbe celling of the ball of tb
bonne of representatives In the caplto)
t Jefferson City made Francis Marion
Cockrell a member of tbe United States
senate. The state had been stirred by
contest for tbe Democratic nomina
tion for tbe governorship. The lines
between supporter of opposing candi
dates were sharply drawn. ..In a tate
convention numbering a thousand dele
gates Charles II. Hardin had won by
the narrow majority of one-half of one
vote. So close waa the result and to
j bitter the feeling that the Democratic
leaders reared irreconcilable division in
the party ranks. The result however,
had scarcely been announced from the
secretary's desk when the tall figure of
the defeated candidate, General Cock
rell, was seen coming to the platform.
A moment more, aa the bush of expec
tancy fell upon the crowded hall, Cock
rell's voice rang out. "No man," said
he, "will more loyally support tbe nom
inee of the convention than myself. No
man will throw hit hat higher for
Charley Hardin than will I." And
way to the celling went tbe broad
brimmed Cockrell hat The conven
tion, frantic with enthusiasm, heard
not another word. But the following
spring General Cockrell became United
Btatet senator by the nnanlmous vote
of the Democrats of Missouri - For
five successive terms after March 4.
1875, with sever t Democratic, vote
against blm, be was elected to the tens
torshlp, the first political office be ever
held. No senator from bit state sur

A prominent New Tork stockbroker
aaya: "The newspapers do not get wind
of even a small fraction of the suits
brought against brokers because of mlt
understandlngt between us and our cus
tomers. Ninety-nine customers out of
every hundred think we rob thvrn when
they lose their money in tbe market
and give us no credit when they win.
We do our hardest to settle all suits
out of court, for there la not a Jury on
earth that will find, a verdict for
Stockbroker.. WhyJ Simply because
every Juror bas been scorched now and
then In the market and holds a grudge
gainst all brokers." New York Press.
