Honda In tho days when the Moors
were all-powerful In Andalusia, a
province which was the first and the
last to own their sovereignty, was
a place of supremo Importance from
the fact of Its situation on an almost
impregnable rock, and though It does
not rank with Granada, which holds

Percy Parklngton rose and brushed
the dust from his knees. Then, draw
ing himself up to his full height, he
gazed resentfully upon the form of
Miss Muriel Muggins, who nonchalant-
ly fanned herself the while.
"Very well, Miss Muggins," came in
bitter tones from Percy. "Oh, very

cities of the province, Seville and Cor-
Honda has always been a town of
horse tamers and smugglers, traits no
doubt derived from the Moor; for tho
Andaluslan has in his blood something
of the oriental, which is reflected in his
speech, his manners and customs. Almost all the terms
of farming and husbandry he employs are Arabic while
the dance and music he revels in has a distinctly east-
ern character. He Invariably has, too, in his head somo
Idea of treasure linding, and. as many know to their cost,
he has succeeded in interesting with his "Spanish Pris-
oner's Treasure" tale many who own to have been bit-
ten. Now, however, It seems as if there was some
ground for the treasure seekers' hallucination. Treas-
ure has boon stated to have been found, and in a spot
where it might reasonably have been expected to be.
The castle of the Moorish king, in the Calle San Pedro,
Honda, built in 1042 by a worthy fellow, A1 Motabhed,
who had the pleasing habit of converting the skulls of
his captured enemieB into jeweled drinking cups, from
which he could drink his wine, and who must often have
gone forth to cool his heated head on the platform
Which to this day hangs over the vast cliasm of tho
Tajo, seems ready to reveal its secret. There is already
one subterranean passage known, the Minn de Ronda,
which leads by a stair of 365 steps, one for every day
In the year, to a grotto below which was excavated by
Christian slaves at their Arab master's bidding, so as
to provide the city with water in case of a siege, which
gave rise to the proverb. "Dios mo guarde del zaque
<le Ronda." since in such event the poor slaves would
he set to the endless task of raising water from the
depths below. Whether it is a branch of this
passage which has been found to lead to tho sub-
terranean galleries which report had always lo-
cated as being under the castle, we have not full
Information, but it seeius reasonable to sup-
Ronda Itself is two towns In one. There Is
the old Moorish town, whose winding lanes play
strange freaks of ups and downs, full of quaint
small houses with heavy walnut doors and heav-
ily grated windows, Sheltered by the old Arab
towers and walls, perched on :i spur of the hills,
circled by the Guadelevin. which girdles it as the
Tagus does the city of Toledo. There is the new
town, which Is more or less a typical Spanish
town of badly paved streets and low white-
washed houses, but which is the most Interesting
to the neighbors of Honda, since it contains the
Plaza de Toros, where the Andaluslan bull pro-
vides brave sport during the nnuual Feria. one
of the most interesting fairs in Spain, and which
possesses this striking advantage—that the car
rasses of the tired old hacks bestridden by the
picadores can be cast over the precipices which
friuge it and left to the scavenging offices of the
vultures, which it pleases the inhabitant to point
out to the unwary stranger ns being the more

It was done five—seven—nine hundred years ago.
Looking down on them from the new bridge
or Porte Uuevo, which straddles with one single
span the narrowest part of the black gulf, the^
mills look like toys and the millers like ants.
The bridge itself is a marvel, 230 feet across and
of immense height. It cost its architect his
tile for, falling from the parapets, he was dashed
to pieces in the depths below. One may pass by
the quaintly interesting old church of Santa Ma-

They were little girls, so small that
the teacher was telling them about di-
visions of time, and receiving all sorts
of answers to her simple questions.
The little girl who lived in a board-
ing house was a year older than any
of the others.
"We have learned that years are di
vided into months, months into weeks,
and weeks into days," said the teach-
er. "Now can any one tell me hoi\
the days are divided?"
The little girl who lived in a board-
ing house raised her hand, and was
asked to speak.
"Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays
and Thursdays, beef," she said, glibly;
"Friday, fish; Saturday, corned beef
and beans; and Sunday, chicken."—

The latest coffee roaster has a sta-

outer one of perforated steel, with
space between for the coffee beans,

the inner cylinder by electri^ current.
For sampling the roasting, a small
cup Is so arranged that on pressing a
knob three or four beans are thrown
out without stopping the cylinder.

Moorish mill, past which the river dashes in
seething rapids and from which the view to the
great bridge above, which seems suspended in
lotids, Is a sight to be remembered.
When you ascend to the new town and stand
upon the public promenade with its walled plat-
forms and look down upon the clustering roofs
of the old town, the fertile tilled land spread out
below, the river 600 feet under you and the
purple mountains standing out clear and bold
against the blue sky, feeling the fresh, exhilarat-
ing air blow upon your face, you can well imag-
ine that the dwellers in Ronda cannot help be-
ing what they call themselves in their proverbs,
"En Ronda los hombres a Ochenta son Pollones"
—"In Ronda the men at 80 are chickens," for
they have every inducement to preserve their
vitality and vivacity, though they take good care
not to overwork themselves in their flour milling,
fruit growing and vine cultivation, the wine from
which, an excellent brand, may have something
to do with the Andalusian gaiety of spirit, so
unlike the reservedaess of many of their coun-
WOMEN OF THE ARCTIC
Every spring hundreds of brides journey to
Alaska and fully as many young women go north,
with more or less trepidation, to be married, so
that the number of homes in the neighborhood
of the arctic circle grows larger each year. The
trepidation only lasts while the brides are "chee-
clialkos," or tenderfeet. After they have watched
the Ice go out and are real "sour doughs" they
want no sympathy because fate sent them to a
country where coal is $30 a ton and lemons $1
also take a big pan of pay gravel and wash It
until the specks of gold are free from dirt. In
their fur parki and buckluks they can trot beside
the dog sled on the winter trail and when the
journey of several hundred miles is over they
can play Mendelssohn or Chopin on the piano
that takes up half the room in the little cabin.
"We never sleep," declared a happy arctic
housekeeper. "In the summer It is light for 24
hours; and it is not worth while to go to bed and
in the winter, when it is dark for -4 hours, we
have to be doing things to forget the darkness,
go there is no chance to sleep."
But wether they sleep or not they look fresh
and untagged like the days they go forth to so

MOTOR CAR CIVILIZATION.
Let our wild people rush up against Mr. Auto
and they will not want for a lesson. The auto,
like war, is rounding up and quieting and sooth-
iug our wild Comanches and Mohicans. Around
our greatest cross streets one no longer sees
ancient jackass stunts, no hollering or shrieking
and running; everybody is all attention and, as
fear of the Lord is the beginning of all wisdom,
so a military attention in an army of wild Wilies
is the beginning of that blessed discipline which
we need.—New ^ork Press.
DEGENERATED THROUGH TIME.
Though "Snooks" as a name Is hardly beauti-
ful, its origin is respectable enough. Kindly
people picked up a little foundling boy at Seven-
oaks and started him in life after baptizing him
"William Sevenoaks." He became lord mayor
of London in the reign of Henry V., was knighted
and died in 1432. He left benefactions to his
native place that were doubtless misused, as was
his name, which degenerated to Snooks
The Blood is The Life
Science has neve: gone beyond the above simple
statement of scripture. But it has illuminated that
statement and given it a meaning ever broadening
with the increasing breadth of knowledge. When
the blood is " bad" or impure it is not alone the
body which suffers through disease. The brain is
also cloudcd, the mind and judgement are effected,
and many an evil deed or impure thought may be s
directly traced to the impurity of the blood.
Foul, impure blood can be made pure by the
use of Dr. Plerez's Golden Mcdlcal Discovery.
It enriches and purifies the blood thereby
curing, pimples, blotches, eruptions and other cutaneous affec
tlons, as eczema, tetter, or salt-rheum, hives and other mun ies-
tations of impure blood.
In the cure of scrofulous swellings, enlarged glands, open eating
ulcers, or old sores, the Golden Medical Discovery" has per-
formed the most marvelous cures. In cases of o'd sores, or open
eating ulcers, it is well to apply to the open sores Dr. Pierce's All-
Healing Salve, which possesses wonderful healing potency when
used as an application to the sores in conjunction with the use of
"Golden Medical Discovery" as a blood cleansing constitutional
treatment. If your druggist don't happen to have the "All-Heal-
ing Salve" in stock, you can easily procure it by inclosing fifty
cents in postage stamps to Dr. R.V. Pierce, 663 Main St., Buffalo,
N. Y.,'and it will come to you by return post. Most druggists
keep it as well as the " Golden Medical Discovery."
\ ou can t afford to accept anv medicine of uninoicn composition as a sub-
stitute for "Golden Medical Discovery," which h> a medicine of known com-
position, having a complete list of ingredients in plaia English on its bottle-
wrapper, the same being attested as correct under oath.
Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets regulate and invigorate stomach, liver and bowels.
