What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

WATER RIGHTS INVIOLATE. prings, and Wells wey Palestine Are Protected by Severe Laws, Water is tle most precious thing in Palestine, and the laws which protect springs and wells are very severe, Most of the wells are artificial, Rich men at very great cxpense have chis- eled basins and reservoirs out of the rocks to receive the tlow from springs, and in many places where ho springs could be found they have = drilled through the limestone a hundred feet and sometimes twice that distance to the artesian basin. None but very rich shelks can afford such an expenditure. Nevertheless, they have not only been the greatest benefactors of their fellow men, but those who have sunk wells and built fountains have erected monuments to thelr fame more enduring than palaces or temples or shafts of granite, The temple of Solomon has vanished forever, but the pools which he-walled up with masonry and filled with water still remain, The wells that Abraham and Jacob drilled in the rock as acts of piety as well as power are as iw mortal us their names and will Hye for- ever as long as men feel thirst. According to a just custom of the country, water rights could never be forfeited. No man who owned a well might refuse his neighbor water for his family or his flocks, but the lord of the spring was inviolate. No cred- itor or enemy could take his water rights away from him, To injure or fi up a well was an unpardonable crime. When the Philistines threw earth and stones into the well of ADT ham, they Intended to challenge him to a war of extermination, Those cus toms and regulations remain today. Chicago Record-Herald, THE ARABS OF YEMEN. A Story Which Throws a Strong Light on Their Character, The Times of India tells the follow ing story to show the character of the Arabs of Yemen, A man of Zaranika who several times cut the telegraph lines and who was punished more than once was caught on one ocension by an Arab sheik in charge of the lines. The sheik intended to send him to Meedy for !mprisonment, but the wife of the accused came fn and stood as a guirantee for his future good behavior The sheik accepted the ball and re- leased liim, but shortly afterward he again resorted to his old practice of cutting the wires and belted away to another village at a distance of a day's march, where he had another wife. The shelk then sent for his-first wife. who stood security for Lim, and told her be would disgrace ber among the Arabs If she failed to bring tn ber bas band, The woman asked the sheik not to “spread the black sheet” (a custom of the country when any one commits a breach of trust) antfl the following day. | started that night, taking a sharp dagger concealed under her clothes, to the village where her hus band was. staying. She found bim asleep in his abode and stabbed him, cut bis throat and carried his head back to her home. The next morning she went to the sheik and presented the head of her busband, saying: “Eere {s-your criminal, and 1 anrfreed-from the bail. Please do not affix the black sheet.”—London Telegraph. High Temperature, Tommy had had pneumonia, so had been for some time in hospital, where they treated him so well that he was much averse to the prospect of being discharged as “cured.” One day the doctor in charge was taking bia temperature, and while Tommy had the thermometer in bis mouth the doctor moved on and bap- pened to turn bis back. Tommy saw his chance. He pulled the thermometer out of his mouth and popped it Into a cup of hot tea, replacing It at the first sign of the medico turning. When that worthy examined the chee mueNeR er, he looked first at Tom-. , then back to the thermometer and gases: “Well, my man, yoy’re not dead, but you ought to be!”—London Chronicle.

He had lent a Turk some money, but the man was unable to pay and on. his deathbed lald a par- ticular charge on his wife and chil- dren to mect the debt. The eldest son | was making arrangements according- ly, but also died, and he, too, begged his family to pay the money as seon as they could, One day the Englishman received a visit from a member of the family, \.20 sald that there were now four members of it left, and. they were ready to pay, but one of the daughters refused to subseribe her share, declar ing that the money was never really lent. The others, however, wished to settle the matter, and if the English- man would ¢oiti@to the house it would be arranged, “But,” the Turk added, “it, you see there Is any diffieulty just say that you leave It to be settled in the next world!” ‘ Accordingly the Englishuan went to the house at the appolnted time and met the family in the presence of a mollah, the ladies being bebind a screen, The mollali bogan by asking if he had truly lent the money, how much it was and If he would take any less.

In baking bread It is better to overdo rather than underdo the work, To make a good digestible ple crust | use cream inetead of lard, and it will be light and healthful. If there is not batter enough to fill the gem pan, put cold water fn the empty space before, setting the pan In the oven, The rich cheeses, which have the largest percentage of fat, are those which blend well with bread tn sand- wiches or with macarontor.rice. For a quick cake beat until thick four eggs. Add four tablespoonfuls of sugar, half a cup of flour, a little ein- nawon and lomon rind, Beat well and spread on a baking pan, Bake in quiek oven and cut at once. Sweet potatoes are much richer twee cooked. Baked or boiled merely, thie vegetable is good, but when the bak lug or boiling is followed by a subte quent cooking in the pan or in the | oven they are far better. A fine cheese pudding is made by grating five ounces of bread and three of cheese. Warm two ounces of butter in a quarter of a pint of fresh milk aud mix thoroughly.
