HIS FIRST RECOGNITION, The Turning Point In the Career of Nathaniel Hawthorne. The first rending of "The Scnrlct Letter" has been told In T. W. Hlggln- son's book of essays, "Contemporaries." The rending was given to the author's dearest critic, his wife. During the entire winter whnn he was nt work upon the book ho groined oppressed by some secret nnxloty. "There waa n knot In his forehead II the time," snld Mrs. Hnwthornr. Finally oiu' evening he wont to nor nd said thnt he had written some- :ilng which ho would like to rend ,loud.

The next day the manuscript wns delivered to the publisher, nnd on the following morning James T. Fields, (ho publisher, appeared nt the nuthor's door. Whon ho wns nd mil ted he caught the little boy of the fnmlly In his arms nnd asked, "You splendid little follow, do you know what n fnther you have?"

As far back as tho middle of last century General von Moltke In his dc- •crlptlve letters from Asia Minor hud many good words to Hay nbout the camel. "This animal," he said, "can curry a burden of nearly 000 pounds and is used by the nomads and Arabians lu taking their women, children, old men, tents, food, water, etc., from place to place. It IH able to withstand a march of ten days without drink, and a fifth stomach ever reserves a drink for Its master In an hour of extreme distress. The hair of tho camel Is used for clothing and tents. Tho milk and ilesh arc healthy. It exists on the most miserable food, such as grass and thistles. Such arc tho characteristics of this patient, strong, defenseless and most useful of all animals." A camel Is never relieved of its load from the beginning of the Journey to Its end. It eats, walks and sleeps under Its burden, often for weeks at a time. The training of a camel Is no easy matter, as It takes about three years to teach it to bend the knees In order to bo loaded and unloaded. While as tho time passes tho"camel will not bo able to withstand the keen competition of the new railways which are piercing every part of Asia Minor, yet, thanks to the power of tradition over the Turkish Inhabitants uf tho country arid their fondness for theso animals, tho caravan routes today uro still able to hold their own side by Hldo with the Anatolia, Cassaba. aud Aden railways. Hundreds of camels pass over the caravan bridge Into tho city of Smyrna every day, and In the market place In front of the mosque of Mohammed at Constantinople many camels may still be seen. Philadelphia Ledger. Not Since the Flood. Hlr Henry Irving once received what he at the time considered a very palpable mail), delivered him by a highlander. While touring In Hrotland (he actor visited some of tho notable tradi- tionary scenes associated with Shakespearean drama. As a matter of course one of the first pilgrimages wan to the blasted heath where Macbeth met the witches. In an agreoabln mood Kir Henry an they drovo along turned smilingly to his driver. "Are there any witches about now?" he iiHkcil. The driver whipped up his horses. "Not since the Hood," he replied Id his curt Scots way.
