STORY OF SOUTH SEA SHARK. Ht Swallows an Alarm Clock, Moit Unusual Retulu. with While crossing among the South sea inlands 30 odd years ago in our pi i ate yacht, the Haute Flyer, we were much annoyed by a large Irish Better shark that persisted in following the bhip, says a writer in the Minneapolis Journal. . During the night the shark would often climb up on deck and Up over the garbage can. At one time Henry Williams, a sailor before the mast, was bitten on the leg by the He aimed a kick at the brute, brute. who growled, showed his teeth, and nunk his fangs into Williams' limb be fore leaping over the rail into the sea. One day the cook, annoyed at his alarm clock which persisted In go ing off furiously at all hours of the night threw the timepiece overboard The shark, always on hand for dainty tidbits from the galley, took the time of day at one gulp. For two days aft er that we heard the clock going in a muffled way from the interior of the surprised shark, who was often seen with one fin on his head and the other on the pit of his stomach, evidently trying to diagnose his clock case. We were standing on the stern of the ship one evening watching the shark, who was evidently feeling pretty sick. Suddenly the clock went off on him and the sailors, counting the Btrokea, noticed that it struck 23. When the shark heard this, he turned up and died before our eyes.

In a ward she found a tiny boy quite alone. He infc-me- d her that there was another boy in the wards, but that he was being examined before a clinic. The lady looked around her for evidences of neglect on the part of the attendants. A suit of clothes lay huddled on a chair. Folding them In an orderly manner, she said: "Surely, my dear, these trousers are too long for you by several inches." "Yes'm," replied the boy. "A sin and a shame,'' cried she, and took a "companion" from her bag She sat down and cut off the legs of the garment and hemmed the edges. "Now," she said, triumphantly, when the task was complete, "they will fit you better." "The other boy's taller thr.n me," replied the child. "They belong to him." v Chile Welcomes Japanese. In Chile, at any rate, the Japanese immigrant is m3de welcome. The Chilean government offers considerable inducements to agricultural and fishing immigrants. Forty acres of r'.ch land are given outright to each tctler; 20 more to each son 18 years of age or more; a yoke of oxen, a set of farm implements and $15 a month iii cash for the first year. This is regarded as an excellent inducement to the Japanese farmer to leave his litthan an tle farm of something acre and go to Chile. Moreover, a practical monopoly of the entire fishing industry of a country having 3,000 miles of coast abounding in splendid fish, but practically without a fishing class, holds out an additional bait to a people versed in sea fishing. it-s- e the florist's desk.

"An electrical contrivance is connected with a thermometer and when the mercury falls to a certain point you regulate this danger point to suit yourself a bell rings a warning in your house or office. Many a crop of winter fruit and flowers has been saved in the past years or two by the clever little frost bell." 1 Rebuked His wn West-flelHenry W.
