In this circumstance arrives Phillipe Hrldau, Tlouget'K nephew, a lieutenant colonel In the army of the downi'allen Napoleon. "Philllpo soon discovers what's ainlst; and sets himself to work to tlr.varl. the plotters which he finally does i,y klllliiK the man in a duel and driving the woman out of doors, thus restoring "The Honor of the Family."

Mounted ;it the bow Is ;i xniMll •finnon Hint shoot:! :i harpoon uciv:li- i'lft more than 100 pounds and having in explosive bead, fulled thf bomb. If the shot Is wood and the liarpoon is planted squarely behind the fin. the iKM'ilt crashes Into the lungs, killing In- tantly; If not. I he struggle may lust for several hours. After a whale has been killed th» r'lvass Is brought alongside the boat Hid Inflated so that It will Moat. A long roll of rubber hose, one end of whirl) Is attached to a pump anil the other to a hollow spear pointed tube of steel, with perforations along Its entire length, Is used for this purpose. The spear Is thrust well down Into the whale's side, the air pump started and the body slowly filled with air. When Inflated enough to keep It. afloat the tube Is withdrawn, the Incision plugged with oakum and the carcass cast off. A buoy with n flag Is attached to the body, and It Is then set adrift to be picked up at the end of the day's hunting. The whaling station Is a group of buildings shunted In a bay or cove near enough to the feeding grounds to allow the steamer to come In each nielli with the day's catch. The whales are anchored at a buoy In front of a long. Inclined platform, upon which they are drawn, tall ilrst, by means of a steam winch. The saying that every part of the pig but the squeal Is now of market value Is also a fact with flic whale. Not a particle of the animal Is wasted. After I Me skeleton Is stripped of flesh It Is disarticulated and the bones chopped In pieces. The blubber Is tried out for oil. and the meat and brines are boiled for the mime purpose. Later the flesh is artificially dried and Hlfted, making a fine gunno, and the hones are ground up for fertlll/.er. Kven the blood is boiled and dried with the flesh, and the water In which the blubber has been tried out makes excellent glue. The fins nnd tall, after being sliced Into thin strips, are salted and barreled and snipped to Japan as an article of food. —World's Work. Hov/ H« Kept His Clothes Dry. Among a largo shooting party on a northern grouse moor was a certain elderly professor whose skill with his gun was hardly equal to tho profundity of his Intellect. Suddenly a heavy storm of rain came on, atid as there was no shelter on the moor the shoot* era got thoroughly drenched through. At least, all but one suffered—the professor. He had mysteriously disappeared when the rain came on, and he did not rejoin the party until the suu was shining once more. To the amaxe- mcnt. of tho others the erudite one was as dry as u bone. The others, drenched and disgusted, Inquired of him how It wus he had escaped a wetting. "Directly the rnlu ciuno on," replied I lie professor, "1 went off by myself, stripped off my clothing and sut on them until the storm wus over."— London Telegraph. In Bed With a Snake. For one thing Kast Africa must have credit; snakes are not numerous, as they arc lu tho south—at least 1 never have seen many. There ure : pythons, but they do not nppeur to be dangerous. I Hlmll never forget how, down In South Africa during the wur. I once awoke and found a black mwnmlm lu bed with me. The stuike Is absolulely deadly. It frightened me so that after the whole tiling was over I went out and wiis sick. Fortunately 1 wus (juite Ignonuit of tho fact that It wa.s under the blankets with me und rolled out unconcernedly.

Bridget had b«en In America only • few month*, but she hollered In th« principle of protending to know what she ought to know. She had been en- gngcd an laundry girl In a nmall family of well to do people. When asked If »he understood all the details of her work shp unhesitatingly replied, "Sure I do, ma'ani." mlstfess was not quite satisfied, , and while she was busy with her ft rut washing looked In upon her. Brldprt. seemed to be doing all right, and she left without offering suggestions. N'ext morning the Ironing was In order, and Bridget was hard at It when her nilatff-ss looked In to sny, "As you get the clothes Ironed, Just throw them over the horse." "All right, ma'am." the busy laundry girl replied without stopping to raise her eyes from her work In band. The laundry room was located In an outhouse adjoining the barn, and occasionally the neighing of the family horse nnd the merry vofce of Bridget resounded,throughout the house. Returning to the laundry house a couple of hours later, the lady could scarcely believe her eyes nor restrain her mirth when she beheld the family horse, standing patiently beside Bridget, loaded down with newly Ironed sheets, pillowcases, tablecloths and laco trimmed waists and skirts. With an anxious look on her honest face Bridget observed. "I'm glad you've come, ma'am, for I'll have to have another horse." Working Too Hard. The owner of the farm had been en- Joying himself at the county fair, whllu his hardworking wife stayed at home to see that the farm suffered no loss In his absence. "Well, Sarah," said the owner upon his return, "I'm about all tired out. Is the cows In the barn?" "Yes; long since," replied his wife, barely looking up from the task then lu hand. "Is the bosses unharnessed an' fed?" "Yes." "Chickens locked up?' "Yes." "Wood chopped for morn In'?" "Yes." "Wagon heel mended an' ready t* start In th' mornln 1 ?" "Yes." "Well, then," concluded the exhausted owner, with a sigh of relief, "let me have my supper. I'm goln' to' turn In. Farmln's beglnnln' t' tell on me."—New York Herald. Th« Popular Coral. The dealer held up two strings of coral. They were of equal nine, but one was dark and dull In hue, the other beautifully pink and translucent. "The dark one," he said, "Is worth 60 cents; the pink one Is worth $500. That Is what makes coral so popular. It suits all pocketbooks. All over the world It goes. These strings of .rough, uncut beads are for the dead of India. They are put round the necks of the bodies about to be burned In the ghats. These large and blood red beads go to Africa. They are much liked by the natives, whose dark skins they perfectly suit. Here are a lot of coral hands with flngers extended In a V— the gesture that wards off the evil eye. The coral hands nre for Italy, where the belief In their efficacy Is widespread."—Buffalo Express. H« Would FUturn. Marlow was three years old. One day his mother said to him, "Now, Marlow, you may go outdoors to play for awhile, but If 1 see you crossing tho street to play with that naughty little boy Willie Hurr again I'll give you a bard, hard spunking." Half an hour later the mother looked out after her boy and saw him playing with Willie Burr. She raised the window and called with forced gentleness: "Mariow, come here to me!" Marlow came, but as lie did so he turned to his companion aud said: "You stay wight her«, Willie. I'm doln* In to det spanked. I'll be wight back."—Delinea tor. Catching Rat*. Tho best way to catch rats Is to put any animal substance, well perfumed with oil of rhodium, Into a trap. This Induces them to outer readily and even draws them from a considerable distance, as they are extremely partial to this oil. An ounce of oil of rhodium will cost you 50 cents. Catr.Ip to a cat Is nothing like rhodium to a rut. Oil of rhodium Is made from a species of bindweed and Is used hi perfumery.— Now York' 1'ress. The Wrong Shoulder.
