tune fire company, with their triple

building, which not only included the
store room but Mr. Rider’s residence.

Telephone Service in Morocco.
It is said that Tangier, Morocco, is
one of the first cities outside the Unit-
ed States in which telephones were
used, the service having been estab-
lished there more than forty years
ago. Practically the same system,
however, is still in use. The circuits
are all operated on a one-wire basis
with the earth is the return conductor.
Although nominally each of the 600
subscribers has a number, the person
making the call usually asks for his
party directly by name. At the pres-
ent time the installation of a new sys-
tem is under way, consisting of the
latest type of common battery switch-
board and instruments.
Venezuela’s Cow Tree.
One of the most curious botanical
curiosities of South America is the so-
amined it is very wholesome and
nourishing and not so very different
from rich cream except for a slight
balsamic flavor. The tree frequently
attains a height of over one hundred
feet, and is often entirely smooth and
without a limb for a distance of eighty
feet from the ground.
If a hole is bored or any sort of a
wound made on this smooth bark, the
milk-like fluid will commence to flow
and continue for several days until it
coagulates at the mouth of the wound
and forms a waxy substance which
prevents further flow.—Canadian For-

“Yes,” replied Molly, “and it was

thing of the kind.”
“You did, mother,” insisted Moily.

Truffles are subterranean vegetables
and are an expensive luxury and are
used for gravies and for flavoring
food. They form the chief ingredi-
ent of rich meat sauces, pates, etec.;
they contain no sugar. Truffles eaten
in a quantity by themselves are con-
sidered highly indigestible. The black
is the best known variety and is
found beneath the trees of oak forests
in southern France, where it is hunt-
ed by trained Spanish poodles who
have an exceedingly keen sense of

giving off a very offensive, nauseat-
