' PANBESA'S LETTER.
An Account of an Egyptian City Thirty
Probably the oldest letter in the
world 1o the letter of Panbesa, written
fifteen centuries before Christ to his
friend, Amenemapt, a scribe.
The manuscript is of perishable
papyrus, and It Is amazing that it
should have survived for more than
thirty centuries and still be legible.
It is preserved in the collection of
the British museum. It has been sev
eral times translated. It presents an
Interesting picture of life in Egypt in
the time of Itaimeses II. It is more In
the nature of a literary production, at
poem composed in celebration of the
visit of Pharaoh to the city of I'a
Itameses, than an ordinary letter of to
Pianbesa "greets his lord, the scribe
Amenemapt, to whom be life, health
and strength," and then goes on to de
scribe the verdant fields, the thrashing
floors, the vineytirds, the groves of
olives, the orclards of figs, the great
daily markets, with their fish and wa
terfowl and swaris of purcliasers.
The citizens had their "sweet wine of
Khein, pomlegranute wine and wine
from the vineyards," and to these they
added "lheer of Kati."

Ways of the Waves.
Waves are deceptive things. To
look at them one would gather the in
pression that the whole water traveled.
This, however, Is not so. The water
stays in the sae place, but the mo.
tioni goes on. In great storms waves
are souietiies forty feet high and
their crests travel fifty miles an hour.
The base of a wave (the distance from
valley to valley) Is usually cQnsidered
as being fifteen times the height of the
wave. Therefore a wave twenty-five
feet high would have a base extending

At Assult a little while ago a Ger

curiosity inherited from our first poor

Some years ago. before Queen Vic
toria's death and about the time that
the queen's jubilee vas to be celebrat
ed, the following conversation betwqen
two old Scotciwonien was overheard
on a street corner in London:
"Canl ye tell me. wu mman. what Is
it they call a jubilee?"
"Well, It's this." said her neighbor:
"When folk has been married twenty
five years, that's a silver wuddin', and
'when they have been married fifty
years that's a golden wuddin', but if
the mon's dead, then it's a Jubilee."
The Limit of Life
The most eminent medical sci-ntists
are unanimous in the conlusion that
the generally accepted limitation of hu
man life is many years below she attain
ment possible with the advanced knowl
edge of which the race is now possessed.
The critical period that determines its
duration seems to be between 50 and 60;
the proper care of the body during this
decade cannot be too strongly urged;
carelessness then being fatal to longevi

Japanese Flower Decoration.
In the Japanese method of flower
decoration, to become a master of
which a man must study for at least
fourteen years, seven years of hard
work making him only fairly profi
cient, only few flowers, are used.
One beautiful bough is considered
ample aesthetic food for a day. The
Japanese know that only one beauti
ful object at a time can be appre
ciated, and they aim at plucing that
object in Ierfeet relation to its sur
roundings. A vase of flowers in a
Japanese house is the principal
thing in the room, near which the
chief guest of the evening is seated.
