Tho cormorants Are ranged along the Edge of the Craft where they can watch the water As they Drift along with the current. When the presence of fish is sensed one of the Birds is allowed to dive. It has a Cord about its neck which becomes taut As it leaves tho Edge of the boat thus preventing it from swallowing the fish it catches.

What is Sublime Faith a a when a Man who weighs. 280 pounds sits Down beside a lady whose weight is it 235 pounds and the Hammock in which they Aro seated 1b. Held up by a rope a Quarter of an Inch thick. It seems to me that they give an exhibition of Sublime Faith that would hardly need an an Over rating. Quot Over and Merito of the Case. I can t see How they could have entrusted Reddy with such a a Why not a., a be Yauae he is too overbearing for any not the Road to ruin. A where Are you going a a to the Bow-wows.�?�. A you must be a Quot not at All. I m just going Down to a dog a. Mean thing. A Apo my photographs i ensemble ins closely Quot a yes they do. I suppose you will try another photographer a a Dainty Candle Shade gives a pretty finish to table mantel or Dresser and the now tinted Flower shades mounted Over coloured bilk Are most attractive. Tho woman who is Clever with her brushes May make no end of pretty things but these shades May be imitated oven by those who know nothing about painting providing they put the color on in a neat careful manner. A the first step is to Trace the design on a piece of water color paper then color it either shading if one knows How or using Flat. Washes with pen and Ink outline. In the latter Case use Waterproof Ink going Over every line when the paint is dry this Wash and outline work is quite As effective As the More difficult Light and Shade. In either Case use a Light Brown for the stems two shades of Green for tho leaves the smaller leaves the lighter and the centers of the Flowers yellow with the inner petals of 1 the 4oaes deep Rose and the outer petals delicate Pink. Thea is mounted Over a Pink silk Shade. The design is planned so that the jolting of the Shade is imperceptible. The Tab marked a slips under tho corresponding letter on the opposite Side b and a and c under the letter c. The tabs Are to be glued in this manner. Before joining however tho background of tho design is to to Cut out with Small pointed scissors leaving a delicate tracery of leaves and Lowers. The effect of the silk under the. Flowers is vey pretty the Little shades May be purchased All ready to slip the painted Shade Over and the design Given is planned to exactly fit them. They come Bead fringed in All colors for 5.0 cents the Best variety with silk outside and a lining of Mica a thin substance that will not Burn. Then there Are Dali Ity Little separate silk linings of different colors with a silk fringe to match for 15 cents. The Pink shades Are perhaps tho most effective with the wild Rose de Sijon .b�t-.y�llpw. Is also pretty. If a yellow lilting is Vised then the Flowers May be painted yellow. A Light a Reen lining la also pretty under the Pink or yellow Shade. Considering the tempestuous career which Hayti has had since the Bravo Toussiant la ouverture helped Lead his countrymen in revolt against the French it is a pity that Moro men of Hub calibre Haven to been Able to dominate that Beautiful Island of tho Caribbean. Since it threw Oil the French Yoke in 1804 it has. Had 20 presidents and easily live times As manynearpresident3,to6aynothlng of scores and scores and Bundren la and hundreds of politicians who wont like to sit in the administration building. Ufos is cheaper in Hay it than in almost any in a otyl�oijes9 so presidents is have been deposed by violence. Ayti thai off the Rte in or by Nncy in 1804. That was the time of Tous Saint la ouverture celebrated in pro try and otherwise known of a great Caytlan general. But the greatest of them All at that time at All events tho most powerful of them ally was Dessalines. Tho French removed l ouverture to a parisian Dungeon but Dessalines outwitted them. In the hostilities that ended in the withdrawal of the French he a won sufficient glory and Power to enable him to proclaim himself eternal emperor of Bis people. Quot his strength lasted hardly Long enough for him to get used to the Royal position a party of his Nii Morous enemies caught Quot him in ambush one Day and that was tho end of Dessalines. He became however a great popular hero in the Caytlan legends. Even to Day his picture next to that of Oen. Simon is the Best known in the Island. A the method by which Dessalines met his death established one. Of the most enduring traditions in Hayti. Nord Alexia managed to make his. Escape the other Day and being very old�?80 or thereabouts May to Lisicky enough to die a natural death. That outcome however is More or less problematical. As for Gen. Simon it May be safely predicted that one of his enemies will sooner or later conspire successfully to put an end to him. In the history of Home Rule in Hayti few rulers 1 have passed away As most other people pass away Christophe who succeeded Dessa lines had such a hard time of it Fiat he lost All patience with the situation went mad and killed himself then came a Gen. Boyer a dashing figure in the history of Caytlan revolutions. On his Assumption of the highest executive Power on the Island he announced that be was there for life. The legislative branches agreed with him until Gen. Herard and his following became too conspicuous to ignore. Whereupon Boyer was driven out of the country exiled for life. Gen. Herard had hardly time to know what his epaulettes looked like when Gen. Guerrier came into prominence. Gen. Herard followed has pre Elcessor by the same route As it were a that is exile. Then followed a period of additional turmoil. Hayti was overrun with ambitious generals who so tight to tread in Dessalines footsteps one More powerful than the pairs a Man named Riche bad himself cd ated for life in 1847 he was exiled. Ills successor Gen. Soulouque took unto himself the title of emperor in 18b9 he too fled aboard ship and passed the remainder of his life beyond the boundaries. Of the Island. Quot Hayti then went Back to the Republican form of government. Gen. Geffrard made himself president a for life a As the proclamation read. In 1867 he disappeared into exile and a dictator by the name of Gen. Salnave a is Otapa Fioz or Jaks Jouck i began to Rule the Island. To proved to unendurable arid in 1809 was shot by order of court martial. Gen. Domingue succeeded him. These were More than Elmob in the Black Republic and doll Nguey a life was always in jeopardy. In 1876 the place became so hot for him that like Nord Alexis. He fled. Gen. Boisrond canal who past cd into tho government Palace shortly after the exit of Domingue encountered about As much open hostility in any Caytlan ruler of recent times i Etc Cessor into office under Uncertain conditions which during his term of occupancy. Underwent no change toward betterment two rival candidates for the presidency there were one Gen. Legitime the other Gen. Hyppolite and Between them they made things warm for Solomon. The latter fancied if one May accept certain pronoun cat Inen tos that he water pres act of la by to for life. Tofu Rthur that amt ton that i a my a while leg Iii a Pom it we a Maiv w their nid Aid they gave Washington so much annoyance that Secretary Bayard was at one time almost on tho a pint of intervening and a putting an end to Caytlan disorders. Gen. Legitime eventually got together enough recruit to Mac n Brave show in front of port an Princo. Solomon yield out As loing is his army would remain with him and then like Domingue and the others he country. Whereupon Legitime crowned himself president hopeful of re Maln ing in position for life. Meanwhile in the North of the country Gen. Hyppolite . He had not accomplished As much As Legitime held on to his per. Sonal following and set about to keep up the disturbances. A Legitime surrounded himself but there were defections from his ranks and in spite of the Iron Heel Hyppolite gained Faim when the rebel army was almost within shouting distance of port no Prince. Legitime decided that he had better a be thinking of what his predecessors had done. It All ended on his departure and Hyppolite s Assum Pilpon of chief authority on the Stern Rule was Hyppolite a then for a years to Hadt All sorts of intrigue to Deal with but with an experience of half a Century a of. Similar intrigue to Aid him he managed somewhat better than the usual Caytlan executive. Moreover he had the troops with him. Characterized by his following As a mild mannered old Man Hyppolite was a first rate successor of Christophe. Domingue i Soulouque Salnave. He was at the time of the Corpus Christi massacre a Man of about 60 Yea Coal Black in color. Withal he managed to make a pretty Able president of the Island foreign governments found him considerably More tractable than his a predecessors or for that matter his immediate successor or. Simon Sam. He was particularly pleasant to americans professed a Strong Faith in american institutions and often remarked that he wished it were possible to give Hayti the same sort of Freedom. T. Simon Sam who had been minis a ter of War in Hyppolite a Cabinet then went into office. He too began to have troubles. He attempted to give Bis country a peaceful reign and got along pretty Well until his finances became tangled. There was a loss of Over a million dollars and the scandal grew arid grew Kritil in 1902, thanks to the Energy of Nord Alexis the government was forced to acknowledge the Deflit Sam fled the country. Nord Alexis brought into Vogue again the Strong Arm method of dispensing punishment the fact that be was an old Man gave his enemies More Hope than otherwise they would have had. Indeed Ever since fee Baa been sitting in the administration building they have been Batching plots to get rid of him. M
