nearest railway station, so as to catch

"I reckon I'd better »ot be in too

Uncle Billy," remarked the Kansas
City man, looking at his watch, "if
you could manage to see them in time
to finish up this transaction by noon,

A Wonderful Oil Well That Was Pound
. in the Balkans
In Ml", Caton W'oodville's "'Random
Recollections" is the story of a rich oil
well that was discovered in the Bal
On one of his journeys he was shown
a deep hole, sunk most probably by
the ancient inhabitants of tlie country
for raining purposes, but Which lie was
assured was a petroleum well. After
ward Mr. Woodville heard the full
story of this well.
A petroleum "find" was reported
from the district, and an expert from
Baku, in the Caucasus, the great pe
troleum district, was sent to the Bal
kans by a syndicate to inquire into
this valuaible discovery. He was taken
by eager natives to this hole, and a
bucket, was dropped down at the end
of a long rope and drawn up again,
brimful of oil.
Tho expert examined the contents of
the 'bucket, tested it carefully, and
tlien, turning to the assembled natives,
he exclaimed: "This is the most won
derful oil well in the world. The pe
troleum is already refined."
The explanation was. of course, that
some enterprising person, not knowing
that petroleum comes from the oil wells
in a crude state, had carefully placed
some ordinary commercial petroleum in
the well in the hope that the expert
would think there really was an oil
well there and offer a big price for the

writer in London Society of May, 18G:j.
describes Farringdon street station as
resembling "a family vault on a large
scale, with a series of hip baths in
troduced diagonally into it for light

lined with glazed tiles, and to keep the
resemblance to their prototype we find
the leakage drained off at the end into
a vessel something like a soap dish. A
dense fog filled the place when 1 was

more frequently than formerly.
PERSIANS DEMAND THAT W AR

"The so-called Persian meeting yes

war on Russia, has assumed the same

"Tt is stated that the movers of the

Understudies Who Played the Role of
Monarch in Public
In a land of distrust like Russia it is
only natural that the precautions tak
en should Ibe of the most drastic order;
hence the use of a royal understudy
who has always 'been a conspicuous fig
ure at that court. Indeed, it was the
understudy of tho late Czar Alexander
lit.—a man named Komaroff—who was
murdered in 'Moscow some years ago,
when the murderer thought he had cov.
ered himself with glory 'by assassinat
ing the czar.
Nicholas, like his father 'before him,
has an understudy, and the many state
functions he attended at the opening
of his reign, when tho relations with
his people were less strained than they
are to-day, were attended for the most
part bv proxy.
No monarch, however, made suc.'h
frequent use of iiis understudy as tlie
late Emperor William of Germany. Ev
ery day as the clock struck 12 the Em
peror came out and bowed on the palaco
balcony. It was not until some time
after the Emperor's demise that the
secret was made known that the man
Who appeared daily on the baloney was
the royal understudy. And the person
who gave the secret away was the

First Feminist Party
The earliest deputation of women
to parliament was organized close on
2,000 yea s'ago. Under the triumvirate
o*' Augustus, Antony and Lepidus it was
proposed to tax the property of 1,400
wealthy Roman matrons in order to
meet part of the ex'jeuses of the Civil
war then raging. They refused to sub
mit to this imposition and sent Hor
tensia, one of their number, to plead
against it before the senate. In the
course of 'her speech she asked, "Why
should we 'be leonupeHed to pay for a
war into which we had no wish to
embark or for the support' of a gov
ernment whose policy we have no
means of contrrtllingt" This argument
proved so effective that the tax on
women was reduced to one-third of tho
amount originally proposed.—'London
