MANY LEGENDS OF THE OAK
Tree's Orindeur and Beauty Seem to
Have Impressed Each Ancient
Race in Turn.
The ancient races, struck with the
noble aspect of the oak, have In all
ages enveloped It In the clouds of their
legends and carried It back to the re
motest antiquity. Of this claw was
the holm on k, .which In the days of
Pliny still exluted near Borne, on the
trunk of which was an Etruscun In
scription In letter of brass stating
that before the existence of the Ktermd
city It was already the object of popu
lar veneration. The Hornan naturalist
also assert that In the environs of
Heracles, In the kingdom of I'ontus,
there was a tradition that two oaks
which overshadowed the altar of Jupi
ter Hlniglu had been planted by Her
cules. The origin of certain trees Is
lost In even remote antiquity.
The Imposing terror of the Her
rynlnn forest has deeply Impressed all
those who have described Germany,
and I'liny and Tacitus especially. The
aged oaks of Its somber vales, where
wandered the elk and the aurochs, es
pecially aroused the admiration of the
Roman historian. "The majestic gran
deur of the oak In this forest." he says,
"surpasses all Imaginable belief: this
tree has never been touched with the
nx; It Is contemporary with the crea
tion of the world and appears to be the
symbol of Immortality"

RED COW UNDER SUSPICION
Silly English Superstition That Her
Milk Would Make the Hair
of Baby Red.
A director of a London dairy com
nnnv told a correspondent recently at
a dairy show n circumstance llhistrat
Inz a belief that existed not long ago
In connection with a cow's milk.
It was In the days when iniuiy Lon
don dairies kept a few cows at the
back of the establishment, partly to
give the Impression that the daily milk
supply was all derived from these
cows.' or to enable the proprietor to
meet the wants of hi customers In
special cases for Infant feedinz. The
shop had been closed for the day, when
a tvf.nmn cntlcd to ask for new milk
for n baby. This was supplied.
Shortly after the woman called again
and asked : "fan you tell me the color
of the cow you took that milk from?"
The owner of the establishment said
he was not quite sure, but would go
and see. He went and returned say
ing: "It was a black cow, but why
do you want to know?"
"Well, sir," she replied. "If it had
been a red cow my mistress would have
asked you to change the milk, as the
baby would then have bad red hair,
nnd she does not want that." London
MARK. TWAIN IN WASHINGTON
Good Stories Concerning Sojourn of
the Famous Humorist at Capital
Are Current Still.
' When Mark Twain lived In , Wash
ington the streets In the national cap
ital were In such a condition that an
Intoxicated philosopher aptly described
them by saying ! "When it' dry
you can't see where you are going,
and when it's wet you can't go."
Mark Twain remarked that the win
ter visitor would probably wonder, if
there happened to he a thaw when he
came to town, why the city fathers
were so shortsighted a not to dilute
the mud a little more and use the
streets for canals.
Another storv told about Mark
Twain during his stay there which Is
probably better known, had its be
ginning when the humorist culled to
see Oovcr Cleveland at the White
House, The President and Mrs. Cleve
land had invited Mark Twain and his
wife to dine with them, and the latter
was ill and unable to o. Mark Twain
went alone, apologized for the ab
sence of Mrs. Clemens, solemnly
handed Mrs. Cleveland a paper, and
Bfcked her to sign it. In surprise she
Inquired what It was and why she
should sign It. Murk Twain turned
the paper over and showed her a line
In Mrs. Clemens' handwriting: "Don't
wear your arctics to the White House."
Mrs, Cleveland wrote underneath the
line: "He didn't." ,
While in Washinjrton Mark Twain,
who for nearly two years was a
newspaper correspondent, having sat
In the press galleries of the senate
nnd the house, wrote two humorous
articles: "A Late Senatorial Secretary
ship," and "Facts Concerning a Recent
Resignation." Both of these articles
were written about his own experi
ences, as he bad been private secre

For lonir time Grandfather Higgrlns

she could cut oft his whiskers some
night without his knowing It until
morning. Grandfather retortea mat,
If she could succeed In doing it, ne

For a few days grandmother said

forgotten the conversation.' But one
morning when grandratner ewom m

put his hand to his face, and utter

NO SECOND TIME FOR HIM
Retailer Will Have Things Properly
Fixed for the Next Customer
He Brings In.
"This Is a customer of mine," said a
man in a local wholesale Jewelry house
recently, as he introduced ms com
panion to the proprietor. "I want to
give him absolutely wholesale prices.
"All right replied the wholesaler
to the retailer who was a regular cus
tomer of the house. "Whatever you
6a y goes."
'Tlds is done sometimes, it is said,
but the usual custom Is that when
a retail Jeweler brings in a customer,
a profit is added to the wholesale price
and this goes to the retailer for his
services. The customer in this case
purchased several hundred dollars'
worth of goods.
In an hour the retailer, who had in
sisted on "absolutely w holesale" prices
for his customer, returned to the
"What profit did you get for me?
he asked the wholesaler.

that the prices be strictly wholesale."
"But didn't I kick you unaer me
table?" asked the retailer, "lou should
have gotten wise to that."
"You never kicked me," replied tne
wholesaler. "You must have been kick
ing your own customer who sat next
to me." ' - -
"iff or this." was the reply, "the cus
tomer will sit on my Bide. Then there
will be no mistake." Kansas city

MirHi Gra at New Orleans.
Tho Kow Orleans observance of the
Mardl Gras has been growing steadily
since Its establishment in ibu, ana it
now numbered among the most Dru
liant of the public and social festivi
ties of the United States. Ills Ma
thi kinc of the carnival,
first rode at the head of a body of
Arabic troops in honor of the Kussian
Grand Duke Alexis in 1872. The ex
periment was a success, and Rex be
came an established favorite. The
"Mystic Crewe of Comus," however,
antedates this portion of the carnival
by some 15 years, for it was In 1857
that the first "Mystic Crewe" appeared
In a fantastic night parade of gor
geous floats, manned by masked rev-
elers. But so many uuui" -been
made to the Mardi Gras that now
Rex and Comus are only two f eatores
of a magnificent celebration wnica em
