Maltese Muskrats
One of the most objectionable of the
pests that intrude into houses in Malta
is the muskrat. Everything he touches
is impregnated with the odor from
which he derives his name. In a wine
cellar he is worse tihan a dishonest but
ler. In a larder he is more destructive
than a dozen cats. From pure wanton
ness he taints and reodere uneatable
everything within his reach. His odor
is so powerful and at the sam© time so
penetrating that dozens of bottles of
preserves may be ruined by his merely
running over the bottles. The musk
rat is a squeaking little animal who
commits his enormities at night, and
he adds insult to injury by disturbing
the repose of the victims of his depre
dations. —London Standarti.

Carlyle's Pen Picture of the Famous
Old Prussian Ruler
On the 17th of August, 1786, died
one of the most remarkable severe
Europe ever produced, Frederick 11. of
Prussia, called Frederick the Great.
Thomas Carlyle thus describes him:
"The man is not of godlike phys'og- j
nomy any more than or impos ng st it 1
ure or costume. Close shut m uth, with I
thin lips, prominent jaws and ncs.',l
receding brow by no means of Olvin i-l
:ui height; head, however, is of long!
form and has superlative gray eyes in
it. Not what is called a beiutitui man, |
nor yet, by all appearances, what isl
eaJled a happy.
"On the contrary, the fa.'e bears evi-!
dence of many sorrows, as they are!
termed; of much hard labor done in j
this world and seems to anticipate '
moro still coming, stoicism, ea-'
pablc enough of what joy there were, |
but not expecting any worth men tie 11: ]
I great unconscious and some eonsciou>'
pride tempered with a cheery modi-1
ery of humor—arc written in' that old l
I face, which carries its chin well for*
ward in spite of the s'ight abjut '
the neck: snuffy ncse rather flung into;
the air under its old cocked hat —like |
an old snuffy lion on the watch; en.l
such a pair ol eyes as no man or lion i
or lynx of that century bore elsewhere,
according to ail the testimony we have.
This is the man who, among the
common people who much loved a id
esteemed him, was Vater Fritz—Pa
ther 1' red -a name of familiarity which
had not bred contempt in that in
j stance."
They Risk Drown ng to Escape the In
furiated Aniual's Tsil
Many of the Japanese whalemen arc
I most expert and daring men. After a
whale has bee l - cornered, harpooned !
and is slowly gi' ing out from exhaus 1
I tion, tin nimble expert of the whaling
crew must prove his mettle.
The skilled Jan. after jumping upon j
Ihe animal s back cutting two
gashes in the head, one on each side,
through which a rope must be run and j
tied, cannot always perform his .work
jin one trial. Often the animai make* t
i a deep dive. But the little Jap must \
1 hold fast to his quarry and dive also.
] trusting to bis fates that his own air!
j supply in his lungs will last as long as
j the whale's.
j The Jap is far safer from beiug j
1 drowned than from being crushed bv j
j the infuirateu animal's tail. If the 1
i little Jap let go it usually means j
I death, so he hangs on to the diving I
| qtiarcy. Frequently thes« whalemen
| lose their lives from drowning, but t'lo 1
I members of their crew lool; upon this
1 misfortune with something of a fatalist
| ic regard.
But the main business in hand is the
I capture of the whale. As the fight:
j progresses and the maddened, fright- j
) ened animal grows weaker and finally (
| is dying (he boat crews row closer to ;
I the body and pray for the ease of the j
| departing spirit. Members of the f-rew j
I will call out the words, ' - Joraku. Jora- '
j ku, Joraku! " an 1 on the third day aft-
I <;r the animal has been hauled ashore a
service is held and prayers offered for (
the animal's future contentment in;
As soon as the animal has been ,
towed to the si oit line lie is cut up, 1
the Japs making huge excavations and ;
penetrating inside the aininal's body as ;
though entering a mine shaft or galletv I
and eventually making their exit, ail j
covered with blood. It is a grewsome j
sight, but is looked upon purely as a 1
matter of course among the Jap whale- :
Muscular Women Carry Heavy Loads in
Covent Garden Market
Visitors to Covent Garden market, i
the great flower market of London, will I
find that,, in additijn to much floral j
beauty, there is a wholesome, muscular, i
athletic womanhood that is good to look !
upon to be found among the women por- |
ters. The flowers that are sold in huge I
quantities in this ma-ket are bought by i
retail flower dealers, to whose vans the
flowers must be delivered in the sur
rounding streets Tiie work of carrying |
is done largely by women, and the Gov- j
ent Garden womau porter is one of!
London's character studies.
These women, who carry loads of |
flowers on thei: heads, are hard-work
ing, conscientious workers. As a rule* •
their hours are from o to 9 in the j
morning—not long, perhaps, but dur- :
ing that time the women do what might !
well be considered a day's work. It j
is not light work, as a woman porter
frequently carries two dozen large pots I
of plants on her head over a distance !
of several hundred yards. Light ami j
heavy loads may or may not come al- |
ternately, but all are accepted cheer- |
fully. The payment, as a rule, is ade- j
quate, but depends upon the generosity ,
of the temporary employer.
The powers of endurance these worn 1
en possess are quite remarkable, and j
the work agrees with them. One worn
an recently pointed with pride to her |
daughter, a girl of 20, with cheeks I
glowing with health and muscles that I
would do credit to any system of phys- '
ical culture. The girl had been deli- I
cate, but a few weeks' work in the
flower market caused a decided im- ;
provement, which increased as time I
went on.
A somewhat odd recognition of their
work is received annually by these flow
er porters in the shape of a shawl and
two aprons each, a gift from the Duch
ess of Bedford.—London .Mirror.

Commuter Argument Ends
The argument in the application for
a rehearing and a reopening of the
case invoking passenger rates for com
| muters, whin oocu .ed the attention
j of the Public Service Commission all
lay yesterday, came to an end about 5
(o'clock, the Pennsylvania railroad at
| torneys arguing that the Commission
I had no lignt to interfere with the com
| panics rates as they were authorized
oy iti- charter, and as such could not be
; interfered wit'h. It was intimated that
if the matter wa persisted in an ac
tion might be brought in court, the
j chartar rights of the railroad eompa

j the commuters and business men ot
