N the way to the durbar the Medina, bearing the king and queen of England and their suit, stopped at Port Said, where a notable com- pany of dignitaries rept:esenting Egypt and Turkey paid their respects to the royal pair. In the accompanying photograph the personages Jn order from left to right are: Standing--The Duke of Teck, Prince Zia-ed-Dln, heir apparent to the Turkish throne; the khedive of Egypt, the king and Lord Kltchener. Seated--Queen Mary and Kiaml] Pasha, ex-grand vizier of Turkey. The upper photograph shows a part of the great array of tents that housed the native princes at the durbar. Some of these were of truly oriental magnifi- cence. The pitching of the vas number of pavilions, indeed, was due to the impossibility of providing in Delhi for the luxurious feudal chiefs and the king-emperor himself sufficiently splendid houses and palaces. One of these tents, which was burned, was valued at a greater figure than many a Fifth avenue residence and was heavily insured. The whole camp covered an area of twenty-five square miles. It was laid out in streets and avenues and was equipped with electric lights and running water, e Durability of Steel. Nearly all the failures of steel occur very early in its history. A bar or a plate of steel that lasts a year In serv- ice may be regarded as perfectly dura- ble Continual bending backward and forward, as in what is called "punting" a boiler's end. is the most trying for steel whl(:h, according ,to an expert, Is "tumultuous in youth, trustworthy in middle age and beyond reproach in old age." Laughter  Good Weapon. The woman who can hide her sot row in laughter Is a public benefactor. Tears are the weapon of the weak, but the strong woman smiles and turns life's rebuffs with skill Into laughter. In fact, laughter is one of tbe best weapons with which a woman can fight her way In the world. No one likes a long. doleful face, tears or a tale of woe. Every one likes a brighg smile and cheeriness. Possibly people may think you have no heart when yon try to hide your sorrow, but it Is better to face this false criticism than to bore people with your troubles. It Is best to sorrow and grieve In secret. A brave woman who hides her suffer- Ing, be It mental or physical, by a bright smile and wholesome laughter will gain far more sympathy than the one who weeps or can talk o nothing but her misfortunes. Giggling and tittering are strange abortions of the beautiful art of laugh- ter. The Lessening Death Rate. Some of the greatest advances of civilization are made silently. They escape the flourish of trumpets, while other much less Important advances" are accompanied by incessant drum beating and pyrotechnics. The diminu- tion of the death rate is one of the signal triumphs of modern enlighten- ment. It ts also one of the most po- tent checks on economic waste. The average age of each generation is be- ing materially lengthened, and that re- sult Is chiefly being reached by stop- ping the excessive loss of infant life. Yet few persons realize the extent of the beneficent progzress thus made or what it has meant in the way of in- creasing the sum total of human hap- piness and efficiency.--New Yoek Trib- une. The Old Press Gang. Desperate means were sometimes re- sorted to in order to get men for Brtt- Ish warships. A chronicler writesthat in the year 1738 "a fleet of ships be- ing required immediately to be man ned, the press gangs placed a live tur- key on the top of a monument, which, drawing together a great number of idle people, they had the opportunity of selecting as many men as answered the purpose of their intended scheme." The scene so enraged a citizen that he fired a shot at the bird, "which occa- sioned it to fly away." But the mis- chief had beeu done, MOSLEM HOLY WARS. Once Ordered They Are Waged I'111 Either Side Is Wiped Out. W'hen a Jlhad or holy war is prO- I claimed by the Mohammedans it means that every male Moslem from eight years old to eighty must take up arms and fight to the death, if need be, In defense of his faith. When a holy war is proelained the sacred green banner of the prophet. kept furled at all other times, is loos- ened to the breeze, nnd the Moslem who does not follow it is he:d to be forever accursed. Anybody mqy kill hhu with imptmity. His wivts, his children and his prol)erty cease aa3 longer to belong to him. He is cut off from all communion with the faithful. The mnn who engages in a holy war. on the other hand, is called "shehid," which means "'martyr" or "glorious one." His sole aim and object hence- forth is to kill as m'lny infidels as pos sible. If he himself Is killed in his turn it does not matter in the least. Iiis religmn teache him that he goes straight to paradise, where bright eyed houris are ,atchiag to clasp hint in their arms and acclaim him as "bravest of the brave." It was because of a holy war, pro- claimed against England by Gaylan. sultan of Fez, that England gave up Tanglers. For twenty-one years this particular holy war was waged, and during that time no quarter was asked or given by either side. To England it was one long series of disasters. The worst was that which befell the West Surrey regiment. Ambushed and surrounded, this corps was practically annihilated, only nine men out of more than 500 escaping with their lives. In 1842 again a holy war was pro- claimed against England by Akbar Khan, the favorite son of Dost Mo- hammed, ameer of Afghanistan, whom England had deposed The savage hill tribes rose to a man at his bidding. and the entire B*ritish army of occulta- tion-about 16,000 men, including camp followers--was wiped out of ex- istence. The worst of a holy war is that, once begun, it can only be ended by one side or the other being exterminated. ao that it Is liable to drag on almost lndefinitely.--London Answers. Blackbuck'a Extra Nostril. Two visitors to the menagerie were discussing the why and wherefore of" an opening on the-face cf an Indian antelope or blackbuck halfway between the eye and nose. One visitor said it was due to an injury; the other opined it led to the tear duct. "You are both wrong," said the keep- er. "That ts an extra nostril for the fastest running member of the ante- lope or deer family. He runs so fast that his ordinary nostrils cannot supply enough air to his lungs nature came to the rescue with the extra air channel. No other animal that I know of Is so well provided. The blackbuck is the fastest thing on hoofs. On favorable ground and spurred by fear the black- buck could make sixty miles an hour." --New York Run. The Auctioneer. "She cries an awful tot. You never saw anybody that cries so much." "I'll bet I did." "Who was It?" "A man I know. He cried a house and lot." Where He Scores. "He is a close student of human na- ture." "What does he make out of it?" "A collection of easy marks." On the Ground Floor. "Have you heard the latest?" "Didn't you know I was married1  Solid Comfort.
