A very distinguished prelate
of the Episcopal church found
himself stranded in a little town
away down in the backwoods of
Maine last summer, and he had
to put up at a farmhouse, where
he was hospitably entertained.
'Do you have many Episcopa
lians down here?" he inquired
of lies hostess.
'Well, really now, I don't
know." she answered; '-our hired
man shot some sort of a queer

A lecture was recently deliver
ed at Madias, India, on that in
teresting and familiar pest, the
mosquito. The lecturer, Mr.
II. Sullivan Thomas, asserts that
it. is only the female mosquito
that does the biting, lie con
siders the mosquito a most use
ful pest, seven-eighths of its ex
istence being devoted to the sor
vice of men and only one-eighth
to their annoyance. It exists in
the larval state twenty-one days,
and during that period engages
in sanitary work with ardor and
thoroughness. "Wherever there
is dirty water, wherever there is
a filthy drain, there the mosqui

Revolutions in Kcuador are
frequent : they usually begin by
an attempt to a.-sassinale the
President. The plan of proced
ure is usually for the disconten
ted political faction to create a
mutiny in the army, either by
bribe to the oflieers or prmises
of promotion. As the private
soldiers always obey these olli
ecrs like so manyautomatons and
are as willing to fight on one
side as the other, to secure the
oflieers is to secure the army.

years, while he has been Rresid-

going from Guayaquil to quito.
He was riding, as tiavelers usu
ally do, by night, to escape the
heat of the sun, when his small
escort was attacked by a band of
mountaineers and lied, leaving
the President to look out for

horse, ran into the forest which
encloses the road, ard creeping

made his way thirty
ty miles on

where he found refuge. For two

forest without food, and when he
