Cooperation in Germany.
There are in Germany 2,508 cooper-
ative stores societies, having a mem-
bership ot over 1,200,000. The value
of goods sold by them increased from
147,000,000 marks (mark 23 8 cents)
In 1903 to 230,000,000 in 1905. The
profits realized (which accrue to the
benefit of the members) were 12,000,-
<100 and 18,000,000 marks respectively,
for the years mentioned. Many of
these various retail cooperative stores
have their wholesale purchasing com-
panies which supply them at original
cost; they are thereby enabled to se-
cure lowest wholesale prices.
Trading with Japan.
There is a probability of Argentina
and Brazil su. .ng ..... ia in
the trade with Japan so far as the
supply of foodstuffs is concerned. Not
only ha6 the Japanese government
granted a subsidy to a Japanese-South
American line, but the iinnii- ation
of Japanese workers to South uneri-
ca is also to be encouraged, es dally
to Brazil, where a Japanese bank is
to be established.
Two ancient earthenware crocks,
containing bronze and silver coins of
the Roman period, have been dug u>
in Groveley wood, England.
Peculiarity of Turks.
"Turks areextremelypecullar,” writes
a traveler, ‘‘in regard to the quality
of water they drink, and are willing to
be at much trouble and expense to ob-
tain water of the kind they prefer.
To be a perfect beverage, water must
issue from a rock, fall from a height,
be of medium temperature, flow rap-
idly and copiously, taste sweet, spring
In high and lonely ground and run
front south to north or east to west.
The excellence of any water is accord-
ingly determined by the number of
these conditions it fulfills. It is re-
markable how much pleasure Turks
find in visiting a famous spring in the
country, to spend the whole day beside
it, under the shade of trees, doing
little else but drink carafe after carafe
of the water, as the elixir of life. Re-
sorts of this description abound on
the shores of the upper Bosporus un-
der such names as the Water of Life,
the Silver Water, the Water Under the
Chestnut Tree, the Water Beside the
Hazels. The spectacle of the great
gatherings there on Fridays, arrayed
in bridal colors, seated tier above
tier on the terraced platforms built
against the green slope of the bill, the
women above, the men below, all In
the deep shade of the branches meet-
ing overhead, forms a picture beyond
■ a painter’s power to reproduce."
TWIN BROTHER NO RELATION.
NECKLACE FROM THAMES.
Returning Hero Refused to Recognize
Members of His Family.
Back In the early '50's there lived In
the little town of France-;, own, N. H„
a large family by the name of Foote.
They were illiterate, but honest, hard-
working people, and the boys were
often hired out by the neighboring
Two of the boys, Jim and Dan, were
twins, closely resembling each other.
They were the butt of many good-
natured jests. From "Old Ike," their
father, they received a little strain
of negro blood, which showed itself
la speech and good bumof.
Dan went to war, and, returning,
felt himself to be a hero. He finally
decided that the family name was not
quite good enough for him, so he had
It legally changed from Foote to Bart-
Shortly after this he appeared one
evening in the little country store.
The usual number of loafers were
present. One of them, thinking to
torment him by using his old name,
said: “Way, how do you do, Mr.
Drawing himself up to his full
height, Dan replied, with great dig-
nity; ‘‘T.ou’re mistaken In the man,
sah! I’m Mr. Bartlett, sah. You
must be thinking of my twin brother,
Jim. He’s no relation of mine, sah!”
Lost for Year, Recovered by Work-
man Who Didn’t Know Its Value.
A valuable pe.i 1 necklace lust In tho
Thames over a year ago by a lady
of title has just been recovered by
Its owner, says the Li nden Tribune.
Some months ago a Henley-on-
Thames workman walking by the side
of the river, near Shiplake Ferry, saw
something glistening in the water,
and getting the object out, he found
that it was a pearl necklace. Think-
ing the gems, however, were only im-
itation, he casually carried the
necklace home in his pocket and gave
It to his wife.
She occasionally wore it, but never
dreamed of Its real value until some
little time ago, wl^n she broke the
clasp and took it to a local jeweler
to be repaired. The Jeweler at once
saw that the pearls were valuable,
and, not satisfied with the woman's
story, he sent for the police. The
pearls were handl'd over to the cus-
tody of the police, and In due course
were advertised by them as found.
A few days ago the necklace was
Identified and claimed by a lady well
’ known In fashionable circles, who
had dropped It Into the river while
staying at a Thamesside mansion near
The. pearls are valued at £40 or
! £50, and the man who found them
has received a check for five pounds
Queens Arc Tallest.
There Is hardly a king in Christen-
dom to day whose wife does not over-
top him by a head The czar ts over-
topped a full head by the czarina.
Kaiser Wilhelm Is of medium height,
but the German empress is tall, and
that is why the proud kaiser will nev-
er consent to he photographed beside
Ills wife unless she sits while he
stands. The king of Italy, short and
squat, hardly comes up to the shoul-
ders of the tall, athletic Queen Hele-
na. The king of Portugal, though fat-
ter, is less tall than his queen. Even
the prince of Wales Is a good four
Inches shorter than the princess. The
I young king of Spain Is several Inches
shorter than Queen Victoria. The
queen of Denmark towers above her
Sea Encroaching on England.
Yorkshire alone has record of no
fewer than 12 drowned towns and vil-
lages. There was Ravenspur, for In-
stance, which was constituted a fr«®
borough by i-dward I. at a cost of
fl,500, and became a seaport of al-
most national importance. There It
was that Edward Balliol embarked
with a force of 2,500 strong, in order
to win the crown of Scotland. The
town, bigger and more Important than
Hull, hud five churches, a capacious
harbor, and a number of buildings be-
fitting its rank and Importance. Where
are they now?
Bishop Mandell Creighton was once
RBked the difference between a Cam-
bridge man and an Oxford man. The
i professor, as he was at the time, re-
1 plied: An Oxford man looks as If tho
world belonged to him; a Cambridge
man as if he didn't care to whom the
To Tell Counterfeits.
Here is a most simple test for the
detection of base coin. Sharply cut
the milled edge of a good coin against
the milled edge of the suspected coin.
If spurious the metal will almost Im-
mediately begin to shave off.
Why He Despaired.
Rev. Frederick U. Bridgman, th«
noted and successful missionary to
the Zulus, was in.king in Philadelphia
about missionary work.
"Much depends upon the character
of the people one works among,” h®
said, "and 1 can sympathize a little
with the missionary who returned
home from China in a despondent
mood. A Chinese convert stole this
missionary's watch and then cam*
back to him the next morning to
learn how to wind it up.”
The Telling of IL
! "Gracious!” she explaimed, after
1 reading the account of a shipwreok,
“only one man left to tell the tale.
Isn't that awful?”
| ”1 should say it Is awful,” her hno-
bend replied, "what an insufferablo
bore he'll become.”
