Deals by Barter.

Wales even farmers commonly do like

Witchery of a Barn.
There is a spirit ot poetry about a
barn, and unconsciously men are
touched by it. In youth it kindles our
imagination and fosters om suseepti

all this we feel unknowingly as we

Dilemmas of Welsh Postmen.
The postal departments of certain
districts in Wales are in a well nigh
chaotic condition owing to the pre
ponderance of families hearing the
name of Jones For example, the pool
unfortunate Swansea Valley postman
is to be pitied when he finds that lit
has to deliver correctly seventeen let
ters. all addressed confidentially to "Mr
Jones." where there are nine different
families of the name within a radius
of 500 yards in a district where the
bouses are erratically numbered and
most of the streets are nameless. So
numerous arc the Joneses in this part
of the principality and so rapid is the
growth of the places in the valley that
it is now almost impossible for a post
man—probably a Jones himself—to give
the right letters to the right Joneses
every time —London Washington
A Thundering Yarn.
A year or two ago, in a North of Eng
land city, writes Mr. J. LI. Elgir, F. H
A. S., in tiie Yorkshire Weekly Post,
a man told me that during a very vio
lent thunderstorm all the windows of
his club were thrown wide open. "To
let the lightning in!" 1 remarked "Not
exactly," lit* replied, "but to let it out
again if it did get in." As a fact, it
accepted the invitation to enter the
club with alacrity, and though it mng
naminously spared the foolhardy peo
pie responsible for the invitation, it
wrecked a large safe in an adjoining
room. The person who related this to
me said be would ever after look upon
lightning as the "'cutest thing iu cre
ation." It is the (lash that murders;
the poor thunder never harin'd head.
Brazil Found by Accident.
Amerigo Vespucci made the first map
of Brazil, although only of the coast
line, and it was the publication of this
map that led to the fixing of the name
of the new world Brazil itself was
revealed to Europeans in 1500 by an
accident—tiie drifting out of its course
of a Portuguese expedition. The eoun
try indirectly owes its modern ad
vancement to Napoleon. To escape
from the conqueror King John of Por
tugal fled to his dominions in America
and. believing Portugal lost to the roy
al family, set about putting Brazil upon
a civilized basis by throwing open its
ports to the whole world.
Stevenson's Whimsical Attire.
Here is a picturesque glimpse of
Stevenson's whimsical attire as given
in the "Collected Essays of Edmund
"Stevenson was not without a good
deal of innocent oddity in his dress.
When I try to conjure up his figure 1
can only see a slight, lean lad in a suit
of blue sea cloth, a black shirt and a
wisp of yellow carpet that did duty
for a necktie This was long his at
tire. persevered in to the anguish of
his more conventional acquaintances

in 1878 to buy him a new hat, in com

"A Sound Box."
Take an ordinary rubber band and
stretch it between the thumb and fore
finger of your left band. If you pick
it with the fingers of the right hand
and let go suddenly it will make a
sound which you can hear distinctly
enough yourself, but which will not be
audible to any one a few feet away.
But if you were to fasten tbe elastic,
with a pin at each end. to an empty
wooden box. only not so as to touch
the wood, and then twang it the sound
would be much louder than before.
That box is the sound box. or sound
board, anu all stringed instruments
have one in some shape or other. —St-

Curious Golf Priz&.
There is a curious prize awaiting a
claimant at the Royal Ashdowu Golf
club. Sussex. On the club links there
is a hole, called the island hole, of such
a difficult character that a member

interest of which sum shou d go to the

accumulating. Loudon Spectator.

He took only one stud and gave the

Not Since the Flood.
Sir Henry Irving once received what
he at the time considered a very pal
pable snub, delivered him by a high
lander. While touring in Scotland the
actor visited some of the notable tradi
tionary scenes associated with Shake
spearean drama As a matter of course
one of the tirst pilgrimages was to the
blasted heath where Macbeth met the
witches. In an agreeable mood Sir
Henry as they drove along turned smil
ingly to his driver.
"Are there any witches about now?"
The driver whipped up his horses.
"Not since the flood," he replied In
his curt Scots way.
Early Oxford Coffee Drinking.
Curiously enough, coffee was first
drunk with us not in London, but at
Ballioi college, Oxford. John Evelyn
writes in his diary: "There came in my
tyme to the college one Nathaniel Co
! nopios out of Greece from Cyril the
patriarcli of Constantinople, who, re
turning many years after, was made
bishop of Smyrna. He was the first
I ever saw drink coffee, which custom
came not into England till thirty years
after." Evelyn apparently considered
the coming of coffee to have been the
most important event of his university
career—next to the quarrels between
his tutor and the master.—London Ex

I have never uuited myself to any
church because I have found difficulty
in giving my assent without mental
reservation to the long, complicated
statements of Christian doctrine which
characterize their articles of belief
and confessions of faith. Whenever

of the substance of loth law and tr'K
