The "Green Flash" at Sunset.
A correspondent writes that during
tho course of a voyage when midway
between Marseilles nnd the strnlt of
Bonifacio a "green flash" was seen nt
sunset. The sky was perfectly clear
after a cloudless day. with little wind.
As the sun approached the horizon the
line 'twist sea and sky for about forty
five degrees each side of the sun be
came suffused with a rich dull rose
pink, and the waves reflected a mar
velous ruby shade on their surfaces
facing the sunset, while the other
faces were nn opalescent blue or green
from the upper sky. The two colors
flashed and changed in a marvelous
way. Such intensity of coloring bad
never been seen by those on board.
The sun set clean Into the sea. and
nbout ten (or less) seconds after It had
disappeared a bright green single flash,
just like n railway signal lamp, but
brighter far. met our view and re
warded our watching for It. Symons'

to love one: to weave the thread of

with whom I may come In contact: to
worship nature and the Great Spirit
that conceived it all In a word, to play
tho game of life with a steady band
and a qualmless conscience and a real
desire to bo of service that Is my re
ligion. And. say. if I can live up to
the mark, don't you think I've corralled
about nil the creed that Is necessary?

HINTS FOS THE
Convenient Flatiron Cleaner
An effective cleaning and polishing
device for sadirons has been designed
by a New Jersey innu. It consists of
a triangular box In two parts and
large enough to permit of the free
movement of the Iron wlthiu Its bound
aries. In tho bottom of one side of
tho box Is a felt pad. which Is saturat
ed with oil. On top of this is laid a,
piece of fabric sufficiently porous to
allow of moistening from tho lower
pad. In the other side of the box Is a
piece of corrugated metal. To clean an
iron tho implement Is nibbed over the
oil soaked cloth till the rust ou It is
softened. It Is then nibbed over the
corrugated metal and the surface
cleared of grit ns far as the corruga
tions can do this. Tho final polishing
is done with n dry flannel cloth. Tho
box is made with the two parts hinged
so that they can be folded up when it

number of coins fur more precloua

i times of great antiquity. Perhaps the
I most Interesting among them is a
handsome coin bearing on Its fnce the
, profile of a woman which has a strik
I ing resemblance to the goddess of
j Liberty of our own currency. Under
neath is the single word "Demos,"
which is the Greek for people. On
the reverse of the coin Is a beautiful
, figure of the goddess Diana nrcbing
her bow, and the Inscription trans
lated Into English reads, "Diana.
Friend of the Phlladelphlans."
The coin wns minted more than
, 2,000 years ago at the city of Phlladel-
puia, in Asia Minor, wncre mere grew
up In later years one of the seven
churches of which St. John writes.
The prize wns discovered some years
. ago In Europe by a citizen of our own
I Philadelphia, himself an authority on
coins. By him It was appropriately

Carlyle's Sneer at Gladstone.
.1. E. Boohm, the sculptor, once met
Gladstone at a country house nnd wns
Immensely Impressed by the extent
nnd diversity of the statesman's knowl
edge as revealed In his conversation.
Boehm wns still full of the subject
when tho morning arrived for Carlyle's
sitting for a bust, nnd to the philoso
pher the sculptor poured forth his ad
miration for Gladstone's Intimate ac
quaintance with subjects so far apart
as gardening and Greek. Carlyle lis
tened for a time In scornful silence:
then he said. "And what did he say
about your work?' "Oh. nothing."
said Boehm "no doesn't know any
thing about sculpture." "Of course."
growled Carlyle. "of course, and be
showed his knowledge nbout things
that you didn't understand. No doubt
if you asked Blackle he'd say that
Gladstone knew nothing about Greek,
and the gardener would tell you that
he knew nothing whatever of garden

No one knew better the power pos
scsscd by a really polished compliment
than Shirldan. and on Innumerable oc
casions during that rather stormy the
atrical management of his did he ox
trlcate himself from a difficulty by
means of one A good instance is the
following: An English nobleman who
had married a beautiful actress once
applied with much dignity in the
greenroom to Mr Sheridan for the ar
rears of her salary and vowed thnt he
would not stir till they were paid.
"My dear lord." said the Impecunious
manager, "this is too bad. You have
taken from us the brightest jewel In
the world, and you now quarrel with
us for the little dust she has left be
The nobleman Immediately burst out
laughing, and the debt was canceled.
A strange custom prevails among a
certain tribe In the Caucasus. When a
single young man dies some one calls
upon a bereaved parent who has car
rlcd to the grave a marriageable
daughter In the course of n year and
says: "Your son Is sure to want a
wife. I'll give you my daughter, and
you shall deliver to me the marriage
portion in return." A friendly offer of
this description is never rejected, nnd
the two parties soon come to terms ns
to the amount of the dowry, which
varies according to the advantages
possessed by the girl In her lifetime
Cases have been known where the
young man's father has given as much
as thirty cows to secure a dead wife
for his dead son.

friend. "That was misbehavior."
