A witness in a case recently on trial
in one of the courts in Boston testified
that the defendant was not a drinking
man “and only took cocktails.” Judge
Blank, who presided, is a teetotaler.
He noticed among the spectators a well
known physician, a bonvivant. and at
the recess called him up to the bench
and asked him to define a cocktail.
“A cocktail,” responded the doctor,

Abba Salama, a high, rocky and precip

Adowa. So sheer and steep are its
sides that the prisoners are drawn up
by ropes. Their chance of escaping is
impossible, unless they run the risk of
dashing themselves into eternity on the
rocks below. On this lonely height
there is soil on which they may grow
grain, and there are wells with good
water. There is no speaker to keep or

the prime ministers and crowned heads
to their hearts’ content, but they return
no more to the ways of the world.—

Ships crossing the Atlantic in the lati
tude of the Cape Verde islands often en
counter duststorms of longer or shorter
duration. One of the most remarkable
of these paradoxical storms swept down
on the German steamer Argentine in
the summer of 1889. It lasted for four
days, during which time the air was so
full of dust particles as to make high
noonday almost as dark as the darkest
midnight. When the “storm'' was at its
height the sailors were kept busy shov
eling the dust from the steamer's decks.
The machinery was made to work with
great difficulty, and at one time the cap
tain, J. G. Scheon, had grave apprehen
sions that they would be dashed upon
the Cape Verde reefs.—St. Louis Re C
