Careful estimates of the 'force of n
cyclone and tho energy required to
keep the full-Hedged hurricane In ac-
tlo operation reveal tho presenco of
a power that makes tho mightiest of-
forts of man appearas nothing In com-
parison. A force fully equal to over
400000000 horse power wa estimated
an developed In a WeBt Indian cyclone.
This is nbout fifteen times tho power
than can ho developed by all the
means within the range of man's ca-
pabilities during tho same time.

Ilend Speeches of Statesmen.
The small attention paid to most
speakers In tho senate and house of
representatives is often commented on
by visitors to the galleries. But while
speakers nre not listened to they are
read. A great many senators and rep-
resentatives read not only newspaper
reports of congressional proceedings
but tho official report contained in the
Record as well. They devote the first
hours of tho morning to this labor.

APES AS LABORERS.

"Perhaps the mofet Interesting crea-
tures In Peru are the upes" said
Dwlght Darrington to a Denver Post
reporter In tho odlco of Philip Hitch-
ujck of tho Wabash railway yesterday.
Mr Harrington has an extensive plnu-
t..tlon In eastern Peru. Ho is traveling
for pleasure across the continent.
"For centurlcb past these rcmnrk-
able animals have been performing
work which Is usually supposed to re-
quire human intelligence" continued
he. "Naturalists accredit the horse
dog and elephant with possessing more
Intellect than all other dumb animals
but I believe tho Peruvian apes sur-
pass all brutes. In the huge nut for-
ests of my adopted country the apes
aro of Inestimable value. With alnaz-
ing celerity they pick tho rich nuts
from the dark trees saving much time
and expense. Men cannot do the work
in thrice tho time required by tho nimble-fingered
"My plantation near the Ucayali riv-
er contains 700 acres of which nn even
hundred Is In nut trees. I have forty
apes to do tho picking for me. Two na-
tive foremen havo charge of tho hairy-
bodied nut gatherers. I havo a huge
comfortnble cage for the apes large
enough to nccommodnte 100 of them.
Into this they march every night.
Each morning early when the paro-
quets and scarlet finches begin to
scream the foremen open tho doors of
the cage and out troop the apes chat
"They arc permitted to eat and
drink for ten minutes and then led oft
to the grove selected for the day. Four
apes aro sent up ench tree and every
quartette has a big basket ni the bot-
tom. "Wlille tho foremen sing and play
upon their mouth organs strolling
from tree to tree and noting progress
the apes pluck tho nuts with great
rapidity. After several hours the don-
key wagons nppenr with more baskets
and remove those already loaded with
nuts to the big bins In the storehouse.
Thero Is then a brief cessation of
"'Sometimes I go out with my violin
nnd play a bit. Our apes are excep-
tionally fond of music as I suppose
all apes arc. On my approach they
chatter eagerly and group themselves
around me. I play tunes of all kinds
but never fail to close with something
lively and spirited. I clap my hands
point to the trees and depart on my
mule. The apes take the hint and the
empty baskets seek the unpicked trees
and begin picking with renewed vigor.
"Wo always treat them kindly. Pun-
ishment for mischievous conduct Is
severe but rarely necessary. Some-
times tho wild apes attack the planta-
tion In bands and do much harm. The
dogs give warning day or night nnd
wo shoot the intruders mercilessly.
After they have been repulsed and
somo killed we take our apes to the
spot In solemn procession. We show J
them tho dead and bloody bodies of
their friends. Then we lock them up
for a day more.
"The lesson produces an indelible
impression upon them. Tney learned
long ago that all animals must be sub-
servient to man. They evince rage at
tho sight of a wild monkey. They are
most valuable servants nnd enable the
planters to malto handsome" Incomes

Deception of Chinese.
Mr. Clark was telling how the Chl-
neso endeavor to evade the present
exclusion law and of the large num-
ber who because of tho decision o' the
supreme court holding that tho child
born In this country of Chinese par-
ents Is an American citizen claim to
have been born here. There were he
said Instnnces where Chinamen forty
years of ago had endeavored to get
in on the ground that thoy wero the
minor children of Chinese parents re-
siding In this country. "It Is nn abso-
lute fact" ho continued "thntthe rec-
ords of tho California courts show that
one Chinese woman out thero Is the
mother of no less than flvo hundred

A Fifeshlre farmer gave his herd
laddie Jamie a ticket to admit him to
a sacred recital In a neighboring town.
The farmer was greatly surprised to
find his servant In the kitchen long
before tho conclusion of the perfcrm-
ance nnd upon asking him why he
had returned from the recital Jamie
replied: "Weel malster ae man yon-
der began to sing 'I'm the King of
Glory then anlther said he 'was thu
