While I was a student In college I
think I amused the largest number of

tions with five minute Periods of inter
tiftleon between classes. All classes
were dismissed and summoned from
and to classrooms at the same time by
a small bell operated exactly like the
ordinary doorbell. This bell was in
stalled in the entrance hall of the
building-where most of the s; ,nts
iongregnted during intermissio..-.
For the convenience of the students
a telephone was likewise placed in this,
all. One morning the usual crowd of
students was gathered in the hall,
tWaiting for the signal to call them

taking it for a telephone call, I hastily

"She passed he a look."
My theory on this particular point
Is that when the common American
citizen, whom we will call Joe,' was in
his last year in school (the sixth
grade), the teacher asked him how
many boys there were in his family.
He replied: "Just Frank and me."
"Just Frank and 1," corrected the
teacher. And the correction got Joe

no chgnees on losing its mementoes

, Sleepy Sickness.
Sleepy sickness is quite a different
disease from the somewhat similarly
named, but' far more deadly, sleeping
sickness, which Is a tropical disease.
Sleepy sickness was first noticed in
England In 1918. There Is little doubt
that thte cause of this mysterious com
plaint is a microbe. The microbes con
centrate their attack on the brain,
causing lethargy and facial paralysis,
the patient lying for days in bed wvith
motionless head aind expressionless
face, like a mask, reminding one of the
eftigy on a tomb. Doctors are not yet
definitely agreed as to whether the hic
cough epidemic and the sleepy sickness
are different diseases, or whether the
one is merely a symptom of the other.
Probably the latter view Is the b'orrect
one, seein~g that violent and prolonged
huccoughs were noticed in connection
with the outbreak of sleepy sickness
that ravagedl Vienna in the early part
of last year.
French Children Make Toys,.
One of the most interesting toy
manufactories of France is not a fac
tory at all. but a communal school in
Paris. directed by an amteur~ design
er. who during the war interested the
children in the making of toys after
his own designs, which were so orig
ii that there was an immediate de
mand for them. Furthermore. the
chldren who were making the toys
benme so much interested in the
work that a large sum was realized,
part of wvhich was turned into the
treasury of the institution, b~ut a
part was spent in giving the work
ers sonme diversion. The business is
to be continued on a larger scale
than ever before.
Sun's Glow Changes in Shape.
The Gegenschein, the mmiysterious1
midnight glow in the sky opposite the
sun, is not constant in fom. Prof. E.
E. Bartwrd finds that in early autumn
it appears as a roundish diffused mass
of njoti(cable light, sometimes 40 de
grees or 50 degrees or even more in
diameter. At no other point In its
path Is it so Large. But in October it
becomes smaller and elongated, a
change believed to be due to the
mingling of !ts light with that of an
auroral band reaching it at this see
