Keusllng and Keystone drug store, The morning was clear and bright and we all crouched in nooks of the rocks, wrapped in ourquilts, and gazec at the straight gray line of the Pacific and the gradually brightening line above it, watching- for the first sign o. the approaching god. On the most pT-ominent rock a priest knelt, waving strips of paper tied to a stick anc chanting- prayers and eulogies, anc soon the sun rose, as he assuredly wil; every morning, whether he is prayed to or not. There was such a. vast space oC mysterious blue sea and distance below the horizon that the 1' orange ball appeared to be alreadj half-way up the heavens whon we first .saw it. This daily occurrence seems ever new and wonderful, always has something of the miraculous about it, and to most minds it brings & sense of thankfulness, as the sunset gives that ot' repose; though why we should fuel grateful both that it is time to begin work and lime to leave off is a pu/.xlu to rnc, IMy thoughts turned to an early morning near Plevna, and to an honest Turk, who, as the sun rose over the bare Uulgarian hills, turned ciii his box-scat, and gravely louchin his forehead, wished a good-day to his liU'.o brothers in the uarriage he was driving. There was a mixture of eoiiri.uousnu.ss and solemnity ill h'.s manner which Kccmud exactly suited to the important moment. When the orange giow had turned to a diiy./.ling glru-o, we walked round to the foot o£ Kengi'.-mine, the highest of UIB peaks encircling Hie crater, and looked westward at the shadow of Fuji, a great pyramid of lender blue stretching for miles across the eotintri' at Us Tool,, darkening a slice of the Sunlit distant mountains, and towering above them iato the sky, clearly de- tined on tho light mists and clouds of the homon. So sharp was the outline that it seemed as,' if our two shadows ought to show on the distant sky: but though we waved our arms frantically, there was no visible movement on the edge; we were too small. "When we returned to get some breakfast many of the . pilgrims were saving their morning priiycrs at the little temple. Scngen ijama" is the goddess of Fuji; a prettier name for her is "Ko no hana salm ya llimu"—"the princess who makes the blossoms of the trees to open." There is another little temple dedicated to her on the north side of the crater, and many more imposing ones in various parts of Japan, On a banner which iloatcd in front of this second temple there was an inscription iu Japanese, and under it these words in English: "Place for worship the Heaven." I suppose this was an effort in the direction of civilixation and rationalism, -but I resented it as an attempt to explain away the flower-loving princess, and to dethrone her from the mountain-top where she has been worshipped in peace for so many centuries. Close .by the banner is another spring, "The Famous Golden Water," and a small shed, where bundles of chopsticks and other mementos are sold, and whore for ten son yon can buy a tin can full of the famous water to take home to your friends. .Most of the descending pilgrims have one or two of those slung round them with the rest of their traveling kit. The regular Fuji pilgrim is dressed in a white lunic with loose sleeves, close-Sitting white cotton drawers, white socks and gaiters, and a pair of straw sandals; he wears the usual big hat, which serves as au umbrella, tnul slung round his shoulders he has a light rush mat. whieh can be j shifted to either side to keep oil sun or rain. Round his neck he lias a string of beads, a little incessantly tinkling bell, and a few pair.-, in' extra sandals, and fastened to his waistband is the small package containing his personal bag-gage; he carries i.i hi.s handeither the octagonal birch start' or a longer peeled wand, with some paper tied around the- end of it. The dress of the women is the same as that of the men, except that they wear a short petticoat under the tunic, about as long as u Highlander's kilt. I saw none of them adorned with the bell nnd beads, so perhaps those are reserved for the men. It is only of lute years that women have been allowed Lo climb the sacred mountain.— Alfred Parsons, in Harper's Magazine.

From the Scotchman we do not expect humor, but we get .something perhaps more precious—namely, wit. A Scotch witness must be handled care- fullv, or he may prove a tartnr, as the following incident will show: The witness in question excited the counsel's suspicion but the accurate measurement he returned of the length of some art.iole. "Are you sure of that, my man?" "lioolic mi! hae not I tak'n my aith upon the bcuk?" "Woll, sir," said the counsel, in his most browbeating manner, "theu tell lue, 0:1 vour oath, mind! how came you to be so exact?" "Aweel, was it not that I kenned some stoitvrin' daftie 'ml put the ques- j tion. so 1 tenk the msa.sure o' it " j .Km. a Scot can be humorous if he ] chooses. Listen to him. He was dis-.j chargo.d from the Hollow.iy jail, and in ati.iwor to one who inquired how things went wil h him, replied: "\Veel, you sff. u body canna hae everr.vthin<r Consumers of cta^tokccowk illing to paij a little more are w lie price charged for tie ordinanj trade tokccos, will find this Irand superior to all others BEWARE :: IMITATIONS. in ih'is uio; ana im no ^-aun to unbcii. the placo—no me.

Is not this Scotch—docs not every word breiithe the man—hi', philosophy his deference to the powers that be and his religious twang'? 3<ut thu canuj' Scut so:iR"liincs overreaches him self. An Aborducu young man was charged at How street with beiu di-unk and disorderly and trying to force his way back into the yJilaek .Bull," after hours, for another "wee drnppie." He ask;-d to be allowed-to speak in his own defense, and explained how he and a friend went in to have their ''cracks," and after dx-in Icing six tumblers of toddy apiece h supgestod as they were about to part they mig-lit take a ''wee thocht mair." A neighbor asked what hing-uag-e they spoke, adding: " Il '- s only fit to Christian pijis wi'." Ecg-ard- iiig this as an affront Andrew wished to fight, but the landlord turned him out, and he then tried to get in, not for more liquor, but for the purpose ol vindicating the honor oi his native tong-ue. "\Vereyon drnnk?" inquired the magistrate. •'Xac, nae," said Andrew; "I'm no viu to dig a pit to break-my ain neck intill; 3 r c'll no got sic admission as that frac me." 'Then I must hold you to bail; otherwise I should have discharged you on paying the usual 'fee." Andrew was thus entrapped in the pit after all. He was removed and then sent a friend to the magistrate, asking if he might be allowed to plead "foo." Thu magistrate recalled Andrew and put the question to him; but the natnr- :il caution of: the man even then would not let go further than "lie wad admit that he wasna what might just precise ly be called sober." \Vhercupon, with the payment of five shillings, he was allowed to go. Why could not the man confess that he was roaring drunk and get his five shillings' worth to the full? •N. Y, Advertised. LOVERS OF SPORT. Men Wlio Enjoy Good Hculth nnd Prolong Thulr I.ivt'*. Men who love sport will reap there from no small advantage, for they will gain bodily health, better sight, better hearing aiid a later old age. Above ail, it is an excellent training for war. In the- first place, such men, if required to make a trying march on bad roads under arms, will not break down; they ,vill stand the strain because they are accustomed to go a-hunting wild animals with arms in their hands. Second,y, they will be able to sleep on a hard .led and keep good watcli over the post ntrustcd to them. In an advance against an enemy they will be competent both to attack and to obey their orders; for it is thus that wild animals are taken. If they are in :ho van they will stick to their posts, 'or they will havb learned steadfastness; and in a rout of the enemy they will be able, being used to such tilings, ;o press him over evcrj' kind of ground. [f, their own side be beaten, they will je able to save themselves and others without dishonor in marshy, precipitous, or otherwise dangerous ground, for from experience they will be quite at home in it. Men like these, even, when the greater part of their army has boon.routed, have rallied and foxight against the victorious enemy when astray in difficult ground, and huve beaten them by their° courage and their endurance — Translation from Xeaopl-.on.—Macmii- Inn's Magav.uu).

The Beautiful Temple of the Gods In L03 Angeles. ftn Kune, fh * God of w »r> and Exulted Position Amonc the Cele»Ual Dcltli'9—Intcrmtlnc Feature* of tho \Vomhlp. One of the finest Chinese temples in America is found in the city of Cos An- g-elcs, the metropolis of southern California. It was erected three years afro and is the property of the Kung Chow company. The entrance of the building bears the Chinese inscription: "Purify thyself by fasting and self-denial." On the first door, says the Xew York Herald, is the assembly rooro, or guild hall of the company, over the, door of which Is a prill inscription, 'reading:: "Honesty is the bond of association." The proper place of worship is on the second floor, constantly guarded by an old gray-haired Tao priest. On the veranda, over the door, is a red tablet, bearing the inscription: "Lect Siting Kun?."or,"raiHlieon of the Holy Gods." Worship offered at this temple is accepted by all the gods. On ei'Ju-r side of'the door are three rod tablets, with gilt inscriptions. One chatidi'lier and two lanterns'of enormous si/.e lumg from the ceiling, lu i\ eoracrstawlsUw furnace where p:iper money ::nd other sacr.ik-e.s are bv.ri.ied. Entering the temp 1 *-' fl ' om tlu; ^rauila \ve eorae to an isolated folded door, that, is never opened except when the idol is carried forth in procession. Over the door hang's -a iMjiiifieent monumental gateway piece of carved and gilded woodwork. It is a most artistic composition of miniature temples, festooned with flowers, amid which are throned the principal gods and goddesses of the Chinese Pantheon. Behind the folded doors arc two nHars, bearing the utensils of ' sacrifices, the joss sticks and the live sacred implements, consisting- of im urn., two candlesticks and two vases. The fronts of the altars are set, with elaborate carved work, representing scenes of feudal times, the pageantry of royal courts or figures of sagos and kings, illustrious generals and statesmen, mingled with gorgeous peacocks and fabulous birds. The walls are adorned with bright- colored tablets bearing eulogistic inscriptions to the gods. One in crimson reads: "Thy grace abounds like ocean waves." A purple tablet says: "Xhc breath of the gods fills Heaven and earth." A Chinese temple has no fixed time for religious services. The •worshiper comes when he has something to pray about. Family sickness, adverse fortune or some risky business undertaking drives him to the oracle. As he enters he lights his candles and incense, kneels upon a mat in front of the altar, and calls upon the god by name three times. The priest then takes up two semi-oval blocks of wood called Yum Yeung Puey, bows toward the idol, says his litany and tosses them up. The success of his supplications depends upon the position in which these blocks fall. If they both fall'in the same position the god is not at homo or is in a bad mood. If the blocks fall one with -the flat side turned up and the other with the flat , surface turned down, the god is supposed to be ready to listen. The worshiper now knocks his head three times three upon the floor and offers up his petitions. This done, the priest takes a cylindrical bamboo pot containing bamboo slips about fifteen inches in length, each "marked with a number. These are called sticks of fate, and are shaken together with the ends turned to the idol, till one is jostled out. The priest or temple keeper looks at the number, consults his books, and hunts up the answer given to the man's prayer. The drum beats and the bell, tolls- Of all the gods worshiped by the Cantonese in America Kwan Kung is the most popular. He is the hero of their ballads, novels and dramas, the embodiment .of Chinese patriotism. ' In life he was a distinguished general, who, dnr- ing the reign of Emperor Lau Poy^con- qugred the various tribes then inhabit in" the country, and welded them into one great Chinese empire, called the Middle Flowery Kingdom. It was not until eight hundred years after his death, however, that he became a god. The occasion of his canonization is said to have, been the drying up of the salt wells in the province oi Shan Si. a calamity that caused widespread misery. The emperor and his ministers are said to have prepared written prayers, which were burned and conveyed to Heaven in the smoke. An hour had scarcely elapsed when, as the legend says, Kwan Kung, riding his red charger, appeared in the mid heaven, and informed his majesty that his petitions could not be granted till a temple was erected to his honor. No time was lost; hundreds of masons were set to work, and when' the top stone was set in its place the wells once more yielded their supplies. It. is said that during the rebellion of iJuo the hero appeared to the commander i.n chief of the inipcria.1 forces. RARE CHANCE FOR SPECULATION! Activity agal/i prevails !n TUB MAIIKET FOR STOCKS.

LAPLAND WOMEN. Wear Ermine for Every Day nnil UT \Vlutle Oil for tli« ll:«lr. A fat old woman t'oddJed down to meat me, her broad face shining with whale oil, her dress inside out to keep it elean, her husband's huh- in a bunch on top of her head, her toes turned in and her elbows turned out—I felt that I had fully "realized my ideal." With convulsive giggles she grasped my hand firmly with one of hers, while with the other she patted me affectionately on the shoulder. Evidently I impressed her as presenting an •utterly absurd appearance, for, after looking me all over, she would shut her eyes, shake her* head from side to side and go off in'.o a fit of laughter. Soon afterward another woman joined her, the wife of one of the chiefs. She was really pretty; her teeth were even and "vi-ry white, her hands and feet shapely, her eyes of a dark hazel color, and a pretty tinge of red showncd through the clear olive brown of her red cheeks. Her black heavy hair was plaited on each side of •her.head in a short, doubled braid, and she had a huge knot on top of her head that looked like a handle. This is made from the hair from the crown •of the husband's head, which is shaved periodically and collected to add to the wife's top-knot. This woman wore a beautifully-sewed and elaborately- trimmed dress, made of raindeer skin with tho hair on. It consisted of a. shirt, reach in" lo the m'tlJle of the thigh, and trousers and shoes made in one garment, the trousers of the white, short hair of the legs of the deer, and the shoes or moccasins of dressed sealskin. The upper garment was trimmed with bands oi white deerskin and strips of wolverine fur, and the immense hood, in which the babies are carried, was edged with wolfs far. An ermine skin, with head and claws still on. and an eagle's feather were attached to the hood as ornaments. From her waist was suspended a cord needle ease, scam presser, a snuttic tor making nets—ail of walrus ivory—and little thimbles of sealskin shaped-like the end of a glove, with the side seams opened and fastened to the forefinger by a loop of the skin.—"A Woman in the Mackenzie Delta." in Outing. —Mi-.
