Curious Fish Spearing.
In spite of the march of civilization
there remains much that Is still primi
tive In Sicily, nnd n curious sight at
ralermo Is to see the fishermen spear
ing fish In the harbor by the aid of
glass bottomed buckets, says the Wide
World Magazine. There nre mnny
cnrrcrs of the world where fish nre
speared, but perhaps the use of the
glass bottomed bucket In this connec
tion Is to be seen only at Palermo.
The fishermen lean far over the side
of their limits n ml hold the bucket on
the water with one hand, poking their
heads Into It as if engaged In the Hal
loween game of ducking for apples.
Tliey hold a spear pulsed In the free
h-n:d nnd thus await the arrival of
their victims, who are sighted through
the glass bottom of the bucket, which
nets us a kind of telescope.

A Typhoon In Japan.
M.v room "ii I lie second tloor rocked
and swayed, and It seemed as though
the building could not hold together.
After awhile I grew accustomed to
the motion and the noise of breaking
glass and dropped olT to sleep, but a
terrific crash right by my ear brought
me up with a start. The sheet iron
butters of my windows had filially
succumbed t-i the fury of the gale nnd.
although fully eight Inches outside of
the glass, had bent In until the win
dows, sash and all, lay shattered mi
the floor. A drenching torrent whirled
in through the crack between the re
sisting shutters, seized a screen and
hurled It clear across the room on to
my bed and then seized the bed nnd
bounced It savagely up anil down.
Then part of the roof took leave and
slid past my window with the nerve
racking clatter of con I pouring Into an
empty steel bin.
By dawn the typhoon was satisfied

Unconscious Memory.
The memory of sleepwalkers Is oc
casionally prodigious under the Influ
ence of the dominating Impulse that
moves them. There Is nn Instance of
a poor and Illiterate basket maker,
who was unable to read or write, yet
In n state of sleep he would preach
fluent sermons, which were afterward
recognized as having formed portions
of discourses he wns ncciistomed to
hear In the parish church ns n child
more than forty years before. Quite
ns strange a case of "unconscious
memory" Is referred to by Dr. Aber
cromble. A girl given to sleepwnlklng
wns In the habit of Imitating the violin
with her lips, giving the preliminary
tuning nnd scraping and flourishing
with the utmost fidelity. It puzzled
the physician a good deal until he as
certained that when a child she lived

Answering the question I'WIll yon
please explain how a person Is lifted
by four persons placing their ludex
3ngers under his shoulders nnd legs
by means of slight . lifting force at
time of Inhaling a long breath by each
person and by the person about to be
lifted" Edgar l.ucien Larkin In the
New York American snys:
"I have been asked this question
many times. If a iersou actually tins

think that the "law of gravity Is par
tially suspended' then the lifters nre
tinder self hallucination or auto sug
gestion In so far ns their Impression of
lifting Is concerned. They actually
1ft far more than they think, but they
svill not admit this, as they are par
tially self hallucinated In the belief
that the body of the person will rise.
And If they really succeed in lifting

Mission of ths Russian Fleets.
A Itiisslan fleet under command of
Admiral IsoiTsky lay in New York
harbor during, the winter of 18(5.1-4,
and another was In San Francisco
harbor for the same period. Thurlow
Weed Is authority for the statement
that Fnrragut In his presence nt din
ner nsked Lesoffsky why he wns Idling
the winter away. The Russian an
swered. "I am here under sealed or
ders, to be broken only In a contin

general conversation he allowed It to
appear that the pnrtlculnr contingency

Foolishness of Betting.
Being llrmly convinced that a cer
tain contest would terminate In con
formity with his opinions, a farmer In
New York state wagered his new auto
mobile against a wheelbarrow on the
result of the contest in question and
lost Giving uu, the property, he grim
ly trudged seven miles to his home.
Probubly his family noticed that he
had a grouch too. Considered in the
calm, clear, cold light of pure reason,
the gentleman succeeded In proving
himself n near relative to a California
ennnry otherwise known ns a donkey.
Hnd he won the bet the result would
have been pretty much the same, for
betting Is not nrgumeut evidence or
proof of anything. It adds no force,
power or dignity to any opinion or set
of opinions. It Is merely the outpour
ing of the gambling spirit and that Is
a spirit that has led many a mnn to

Nothing further wns attempted until
1852, when Henri Glffard built dirigi

A Story of Labouchers.
Lnbouchere's popularity nt Frank
fort, according to his own account as
given In "The Life of I.nbonchcro,"
rested on a very simple basis. Great
Britain was represented nt the diet by
Sir Alexander Millet, one of the most
popular chiefs to be found In the serv
ice. : "But I was even more appreciated
thnn my chief." he would rclnte. "nnd
this Is why: Sometimes there wns a
ball at the court, which we were ex
pected to attend. At my first bull sup
per I found myself next to a grandee.
gorgeous In stars nnd ribbons. The
servant came to pour out chnmpngne,
I shook my head, for I detest chnm
pngne. The grandee nudged me nnd
snld. 'Let him pour It out" This I
did. and he explained to me thnt our
host never gave his guests more thnn
one glnss. 'So. you see. If I drink
yours I shnll have two.' After this
there nsed to be quite a struggle to sit
near me nt court suppers."

In the memoirs of LI flung Chan
the grent Chinese viceroy, commenting
on his visit to Russia, refers to the
mnnncr In which the cznr nnd all the
high officials appenr to be surrounded
by would be nssnsslns. "I do not think
I would like to exchnngo positions with
the czar even to have the fine czarina

the following anecdote, which seems
to show thnt he would linve been quite

nation which he believed to exist In
St Petersburg: "Once in Tientsin a
