THE SCILLY ISLANDS.
They Have but Three Seamons-Spring.
Summer and Autumn.
The climate of the Scilly islands is
the most equable in Great Britain. It
ranges on an average from 4( degrees
to GO degrees. On the coldest day it is
warm and on the hottest it Is cool.
There are only three seasons in Scilly
of four months each-spring, summer
and autunir. When the autumn ends
spring commences. There Is no great
height in the islands. The highest land
In Bryher Is only 133 feet abve sea

HAIR AND COLOR.
Red Is Much Nearer Allied to Black
Than to Blond.
The color of the hair, says the Grand
Magazine, is usually transmitted from
parents to child. This is especially true
when both parents have the same com
plexion. Instances, however, are not
uncommon where children have hair
black as ebony, while the hair of both
parens Is a burning red. Instead of
disproving the theory that a child takes
after its parents, so far as the color of
the hair is concerned, this fact, it has
now been ascertained, is all in favor of
the doctrine. red hair, in fact, is by
Its structure and composition much
nearer to black hair than to blond.
Very often if the hair of a very dark
complexioned person be examined at
tentively a few quite red hairs will be
detected in the mass. On the other
hand, it would be time wasted to seek
for black hairs in the locks of a fair
person. Similarly it is not infrequent
to notice children whose hair, red at
birth, becomes as they grow older quite
dark. When, too, after some serious
illness, the production of the coloring
pigment of the hair falls off, black hair
becomes not blond, but red. Fair hair,
which to a casual eye appears to have
much more affinity to red hair than to
black, Is, on the contrary, quite dis
Valued Religious Relics.
The collection of religious relics to
be seen in the church of the Corsicant
village of Sisco is utdoubtedly unique.
The inhabitants of this pretty little
place are exceedingly devout and very
simple, which probably accounts for
the possession of such a remarkable
collection. A writer in L'Independence
Beige gives the following list of the
principal items: The horn used by Mo
ses to call together the children of Is
rael while in the desert, a tuft of that
red hair which was the pride of Esau

Two Laymen Have Been Popes.
The canon law does not prescribe
that the pope must be a cardinal or
even a cleric. Nevertheless since the
election of Urban VI. in 1378 the suc
cessful candidates have belonged to
the members of the sacred college, al
though as late as 1758 a noncarlnal
was voted for several times. At least
two laymen-John XIX. (1024) and Ad
rian V. (1276)--have occupied the papal
throne, an~d there Is today nothing to
prevent laymen from being created
cardinals, although they are not enti
tied to vote in the conclave unless they
can produce a special permit from the
Beef and Brawn.
It is said of Kean, the actor, that he
ate mutton before playing the part of
lover, beef before playing that of mur
derer and pork before assuming the
character of a tyrant. That may be
merely a story or a fact, but It Is a
well known truth that beef will enable
more exhausting muscular work to be
done than will mutton, so there may be
something in the "roast beef of old
England." In the eighteenth century
this was one of the English "gods."

chambers of a size and magnificence

It Is a dream, a nightmare, a vision,
carved in solid stone under the green
hills of Dakota, stone as white as the

the first bloodroot that you dug in the
spring when the world was all spring
to you, and stone that is blue with a

ever painted Venice have tried to get

Napoleon's Inic Wiper.
Napoleon was a- hero to his valet,
Constant, though he sadly marred the
servant's effort to dress him neatly.
Said the valet:
His breeches were always of white
cashmere. But two hours after leaving
hisq chamber It often happened that
they were all spotted with ink, thanks
to his habit of wiping his pen on them
and shaking ink all around him by
striking his pen against the table. How
ever, as he dressed in the morning for
the whole day, he did not change his
toilet on that account. but remained in
this state until night. The whole inside
of his boots was lined with white fus
tian. Whenever one of his legs itched,
he rubbed It with the heel of the boot
or shoe with which the other leg~was
shod, thus heightening the effect of the
