"Tlio fruits of .Invn." writes n corre-
spondent 'jf the I'lttHtmrk' D)iinUli
"rorin nn Intvri'FtlnK study in them
ch't'? tlicro nrc o ninny nml of such
strange varieties. The fnont common
is the strniiKcst of nil. It Is culled the
durlnn nnd prowH lllto n hupo exere
ccupo from the trunk of a tree souu-
what Blmllnr to our pour tree. The
fruit which Is pear shaped grows to n
grent sire cften several feet In length
nnd has n yellow skin rough like n
pineapple. The most retnnrkiible thing
about the durlnn however Is Its odor.
To sny you enn smell It n block off Is
putting It mildly. A combination of
nged eggs and the ripest cheese could
. not be compared with It. When you
break open the hull to 11 nil what enn
be the cause of nil this disturbance to
your olfactory nerves nnd find n great
cluster of snow white kernels which
tnste like some strangely delicious cub-
tnrd your nmnzemvtit Is greater still.
Another strange fruit Is the serpent
fruit so called from the fact that Its
skin Is the exact counterpart of that of
a snake. There nrc the pomoloc like a
great orange; the potato fruit which
resembles Hint vegetable In nil but its
fine llavor; the custard apple with n
yellow custardllke pulp having a rath-
er decided tnste of turpentine; the pop-
pm like a melon growing on n tree; the
great Jack fruit of rather a coarse lla-
vor; n Btnnll yellow fruit with nn un-
pronounceable native mime. Incased In
a great bur like a chestnut and a hun-
dred other varieties with none but na-
tive nnd scientific unities some good
some Indifferent nnd some entirely un-
palatable to any but n native. Tbe or
ange Is rather a scarce fruit but the
pineapple and banana arc abundant
nnd delicious especlnlly the former
There nre more than twenty different
Turletles of bananas native to Java."
YARNS FROM ERIN.
The Absurdities flint Are Horn
Hero nre n few samples of the nb-
surdities nrlstng out of tlio cxtromo
simplicity of some Irish folk:
A young man cntne to confess to nn
Irish priest In London whose experi-
ences of the humors of his fellow coun-
trymen would 1111 a book. "Well my
man" said tho priest "nnd how do you
earn your living?" "I'm an acrowbat
your rlverence." The priest was non-
plused. "I'll show yo what I mean In
n brnco of shakes" said tho penitent
nnd In n moment was turning himself
Inside out In tho most approved acro-
batic fashion In and out of the pinys.
An old woman who had followed him
to confession looked on horrified.
"When It comes to my turn father"
sliu gasped "for tlio love of God don't
put n pennncu on me like that. It 'ud
bo the death of me!"
I think It was the same good father
who observing tho regulnr ntteudaneo
nt n Lent mission had done nothing to
reform one of bis pnrlsuloncrs told him
so and asked hliu the reason of It.
"Ah father" he replied "I can man-
age the faith right enough but tho mor-
als bate me."
On nnother occasion tltls priest wns
called upon to marry n man of whom
he knew nothing to a girl of his congre-
gation. On investigation ho found the
would be bridegroom's knowledge of
the Catholic faith very limited.
"Have you ever been baptlred?" ho
nsked. "Well father. I can't trust mo
memory to that." "Aro your parents
living?" "The mother Is." "Lcf bavo
her nddrcss" This wns given and n
telegrom dispatched to the old lady on
tho spot reply paid. The answer came
In duo course "Vaccinated but not
boptlied." A Kerry Man in London
Llrklnir Thmiilia to II I nit n Contract.
Goths and Iberians completed an
agreement by licking nnd Joining their
thumbs ns Scotsmen once did nnd
- Moors still do. nud rustic lovers once
betrothed themsehes by licking their
respective master fingers and then
pressing them together as they vowed
to remain faithful to each other for-
ever and a day. Hven now nn Ulster
man tdgnlllcs his assent to n proposi-
tion with. "Wo may lick thooms upo'
that!" If be does not suit tlio action to
the word like the lieutenant who In
Its 12. on being challenged to mortal
combat by his own sergeant accepted
the duel by licking bis thumb saying
"There Is my parole for it." Cham-
Coins of Knrly Dnys
Tho early. Biblical references to
pieces of silver do not In the original
convey the Idea of coins but of weights

was a half shekel and tho shekel Is ex
plained by .losephus as equal to four
Athenian drachma1 of a value of about
5516 cents In American money. The
first Jewish coinage under authority
.was. It Is believed struck by Simon the
Maccobee about the year 1-10 H. C. U

This coinage had Its value signified
