Why the Boy Gave Thanks.
Alan had played the entire day with
little brother without an impatient
word. After saying his customary
prayer that night, his mother suggest
ed that he add: "I thank God I was
not Impatient with little brother to
day." This he did with much fer
vency; after which he remarked that
there were some other' things he
would like to thank God for, and forth
with he closed his eyes and said:
"I thank God I offered my candy to
mother before taking any myself. '
"I thank God I offered my candy

"Remember, Henry," said the hunt

"we're not hiring you you're simply
one of our party."
"What's on your mind?" inquired
the guide.
"Well, you see, In case anything
happens we don't want to be troubled
with this new employers' liability

of Costa rica .2.
COSTA RICA stands alone among
the turbulent Central Ameri
can states In all things per
taining to freedom, self-government
and progress. The coun
try was colonized at first by people
from the ancient Spanish province of
Galtcla, and the colonists have not,
as In many tropical countries, amal
gamated with the aborigines; they
have consequently kept to the present
time the original characteristics, as
well as the qualities of their race, and
the inherent grace and charm of their
ancestors. They are laborious, pro
gressive and peace-loving, and have a
record of a long perlo1' of absolute In
ternal tranquillity.
Three-quarters of the population In
habit the so-called central plateau,
the climate of which is the most per
fect realization of perpetual spring.
The agriculture of this region Is very
highly developed, the principal prod
uct being coffee, maize, beans and po
tatoes. The land is divided Into ex
ceedingly small holdings. Almost
every peasant Is a land-owner.
The Atlantic coast, warm, hunild,
and rather unhealthful, but very fer
tile, produces on a very largo scale
bananas and cacao, the exploitation of
which is unfortunately tied by con
tracts with foreign companies. In the
banana plantations, covering over a
hundred square miles, the laborers
are mainly West Indian negroes, the
only human beings able to stand
hard and continuous work under the
climatic conditions.
The Pacific coast does not differ
much from the Interior but for Its
warmer temperature and Its extensive
grass-covered savanas, In which
stock raising is the chief Industry.
Except for a small part, located In
the western province of Guancaste,
the 360,000 inhabitants are crowded
Into a narrow belt extending across
the country from ocean to ocean,
along the railroad which connects
Port Llmon and Punta Arenas. The
remaining part of the state that is
to say, four-fifths of Its entire surface
of about 38,400 square miles Is a wil
derness, with but a handful of hardly
half-civillzed Indians Inhabiting the
valleys of Dlquis and Talmanca.
Of the five Central American repub
lics, Costa Rica was the first to be
connected by a railway with the east
ern coast, thus getting Into close
touch with European civilization. In
many respects this was a source of
real benefit to the country. The Costa
Ricans became great travelers. They
sent their sons to be educated In for
eign schools and universities, and on
their return these diffused among
their fellow-citizens new ideals and
more advanced moral standards. For
eign teachers and professors were
brought and kept Jong enough to es
tablish on a solid foundation an excel
lent school system, so perfect indeed
that Illiterate men or women are hard
to find, while books and newspapers
are common even in the most remote
hamlets. The scientific study of the
climate and the natural resources of
the country was carried on at the ex
pense of the government, and the In-
Picking Bananas.
troductlon of modern arts and agricul
tural methods and Implements were
given every encouragement.
Sad to say, the uplift in the general
education has awakened misdirected
ambitions among the poorer classes,
attracted the peasants to the cities,
created a greed for government posi
tions, these having consequently mul
tiplied beyond all reasonable limits,
with a corresponding and necessary
increase of public expenditures.
Moreover, on account of a heavy
public debt, the result partly of un
scrupulous . speculations of foreign
and native financiers and of unwise
undertakings, the government has be-
Mm UimMMmT
come entangled In heavy financial dif
ficulties that have brought the coun
try to the verge of bankruptcy. This
deplorable economic situation has
been aggravated of late by several
consecutive failures of the coffee crop,
by unusual rainy seasons, resulting In
inundations, destruction of railroads
and depression of the banana trade.
Two Leading Cities.
Sailing In any staunch ship from
New York or other Atlantic port for
Costa Rica, one lands at Port Llmon,
the Atlantic sea entrance of the re
public. This is one of the largest ex
port banana markets In the world.
Tho trains run Into the banana fields
and bring out the thousands of bunch
es as though they were so many logs.
The city is hemmed In on one side
by Llmon bay, and on the other by
hills that look majestically down upon
it through their verdant covering
which knows no changa. One of the
Making Pottery.
most substantial Iron piers In the
world Is here. With Its great Iron
piles rooted deep Into the bed of the
sea It extends far out Into the water.
Upon this the trains run alongside of
the big ships with their loads of bana
nas for export. Sometimes there are
so many ships here that some have to
drop anchor and wait till others clear
port. It is at Port Llmon that they
have a municipal free laundry.
The distance from Port Llmon to
San Jose, the capital, by rail, Is 108
miles, and is a whole day's journey.
The cars In which you make the trip
are not as commodious as American
ones. So you are certain to grow
weary of the trip before you reach the
city. I suppose it is the only railroad
In the world, a Journey upon which
makes one "sea sick."
San Jose Is situated in a fertile val
ley and has a population of about 28,
000. Two railroads enter the city;
one from the Atlantic side and the
other from the Pacific. The latter is
under government control and Is in
complete.. The city is lighted by elec
tricity and also has an electric street
railway. Those low adobe houses that
have swayed the architectural style
since the early Spanish days are giv
ing place to modern brick structures
that pierce the air above the head of

The seat of the cathedral is here,
one of the finest In the tropics. It has
three massive doors, 24 massive posts
distributed along the three broad
aisles and is lighted with about 600
candles aside from the many electric

that you find her big distillery. Much
American capital Is Invested here,
and there Is promise of much business
activity. The climate being salubri
ous, a trip down there Is an enjoyable
one; the city Is often called tho Paris
of Central America.
Costa Rica has not had so large a
share as some of tho others In the
revolutions and wars which have dis
tinguished the countries of the isth
mus ever since their establishment;
nevertheless, the little republic has
by no means been free from strife.
There is trouble enough on the Isth
mus at all times, and Costa Ricans
would scarecly be human if they did
not put a finger Into the pie. Still,
the country Is safe for foreigners and
Is most Interesting' to visit With the
establishment of the canal it will ex
perience a new lease of life and Is al
ready getting ready to take the ad
vantages that will come of entrance
Into a new era of prosperity.
Certainly Candidate for Governor
Could Not Expect to Get
That Vote.
An Incident in which former Gov
ernor Odell of New York figured as
the victim was told by Col. James
Hamilton Lewis at n recent banquet.
"When ' Governor Odell was last
running for office," said Colonel Lew
is, "there had been a great deal of
talk about Niagara FallB and the elec
trical power that could be conferred
on all parts of New York. One day
an old negro halted Mr. Odell and
" 'Mr. Odell, Is yo' runnln' for gov'
ner, sah?" ,
, " 'I am,' answered the candidate.
"'I guess yo' want my vote, den,'
said the colored man.
"'Well, I would like to have your
voto, Zeb. I have known you for so
mnny years.'
"'Well, I Jlst want to ask you a
question, Mr. Odell, befo' I give mah
vote to you. Are yo' for electric lights
In dls town?'
"Well, Zeb, I am for all modern Im
provements,' said Odell, with a slight
"'Well, sah, I can't vote for you,'
said, Zeb with firmness. 'Yo' done for
get dat I is a lamp lighter.' "
"In the middle of the night of March
30th I woke up with a burning itch In
my two hands and I felt as if I could
pull them apart. In the morning the
Itching had gone to my chest and dur
ing that day It spread all over my
body. I was red and raw from the top
of my head to the soles of my feet and
I was in continual agony from the
Itching. I could neither lie down nor
sit up. I happened to see about Cutl
cura Remedies, and I thought I would
give them a trial. I took a good bath
with the Cutlcura Soap and used the
Cuticura Ointment. I put It on from
my head down to my feet and then
went to bed. On the flrst of April I
felt like a new man. The Itching was
almost gone. I continued with the
Cutlcura Soap and Cutlcura Ointment
and during that day the Itching com

Getting a Reputation.
There is a desk In the senate par
ticularly convenient as a placa from
which to make speeches. It Is next to
the aUle and almost in the ci nter of
the chamber, and affords an c pportu
nity for the speaker to make every
body hear.
At least a dozen senators, accord
ing to the Washington correspondent
of the St. Louis Star, have borrowed
this desk when they had special utter
ances to deliver to the senate. This
led, not long ago, to a mild protest
from its legitimate occupant
"I am perfectly willing to give up
my desk," said he, "but I am afraid
people will think that the same man
Is talking all the time. I don't want
to get the reputation of constantly
filling the senate with wordB."
