Dealing With a Lunatio.
In front of tht Chelsea housa Sir
Thomas Mure hud 11 garden and got
house, nnd, ns there wns a pleasant
view from the summit of the gate
house, he used frequently to sit thera,
accompanied only by his dog. Here It
was that he was found one afternoon
by n wandering iniuilac, who crept up
stairs and saw the feeble old man doz
ing. "Leap, Tom, leap!" lie cried, and at
the same time tried to throw lilm orr
the battlements. More had not phys
ical strength enough to resist, but he
had the wit to say:
"Let ns first throw this little dog
The tnau Immediately threw down
"Tretty sport," said the lord chancel
lor. "Now, go down and bring hlin
tip; then try ngain."
While the madman went down for
the dog More made fast the door be
hind hiui and so managed to hold the
fort until deliverance came.
The Earth' Journey.
Our world's journey In space Is a
long one, If we are to accept the con
clusions of Dr. Turner of the Univer
sity observatory of Oxford and Profes
sor II. C. riunimer, royal astronomer
of Ireland. IJecent astronomical work
suggests that the sun and Its planets
form a single unit In a vast system,
the stars In which, though separated
by enormous distances, have n com
mon center of gravity, and In response
to gravitation all move In unison like
a stupendous machine. The paths of
these stars, instead of being nearly
circular, lil;e those of the planet3
around the sun, are much like the oscil
lations of a pendulum. The calcula
tions show that on this elongated
course our sun must travel 400.000,000
years before completing a revolution
and that it passed near the center less
than a million, perhaps not more than
800,000, years ago and is now ou the
Barney Barnato's Comedy.
In the journal South Africa the late
Sutton Vane, the dramatist, once told
this story of Harney IJarnato: "He was
the best amateur melodramatic actor
I ever met. A little rough; so Is a dia
mond, but the fire is there. He played
Claude I'rollo in Victor Hugo's 'Es
meralda' splendidly, I playing Quasi
modo, the hunchback, with him. In
the great scene on the parapets the
hunchback tries to. throw the monk
(Frollo) into the street. Mr. Barnato
resisted vigorously. He seized nie by
my hump, which came oft In his hand.
It was a sponge bag stuffed with va
rious articles. He shook his fist at me
and then, with a quiet smile, threw the
hump from the cathedral roof. Look
lug over, he exclaimed: 'Good heav
ens! I have killed a policeman!' Tre
mendous round of applause from the
Armies of Animals.
Some Idea of the vast numbers of
animals that Africa used to support
can bo gained from a passage In W.
Scully's reminiscences. It was Mr.
Scully's good fortune in 1802 to wit
ness the last great trek of springboks
from east to west of the liushmanland
desert a trek on a scale such as no
man will ever see again. Fencing, the
Increase of population and the distrib
ution of arms have almost exterminat
ed the once innumerable host. He
says, "I have stood on an eminence
some twenty feet high, far out on the
plains, and seen the absolutely level
surface as far as the eye could reach
covered with resting springboks, while
from over t!ie eastern horizon the ris
ing columns of dust told of fresh hosts
Shoes and Nerves.
Travelers say that the reason why
nervous people don't exist in China is
because it Is there the custom to wear
soft shoes. There is no doubt that hard
soled, creaking footgear is responsible
for much nervous wear and tear as
well as much physical fatigue in west
ern lands. Tired feet and tired nerves
will find solace In a warm foot bath
with a handful of sea salt in it. Move
the feet about or keep them still as
best pleases you as long as the water
Is pleasantly warm; then dry them
with a rough towel and put on a fresh
pair of stockings. Dundee Advertiser.
Bread of Persia.
I'ersiau native bread differs little
from that used a thousand years ago.
The Persian oven is built of smooth
masonry work in the ground, usually
about the size of a barrel, and inuny
of those now in use have been used
for a century. The dough Is formed
into thin sheets about a foot long and
two feet wide nnd slapped against tho
side of the oven. It bakes In a few
minutes anil is set out to cool.

Origin of the Dead Letter Office.
"What was the reason for our otlice
getting its name of the dead letter of
fice, as it is often called?" said an olU
clal in the returned letter office. "Well,
It was originnlly started In order to re
turn to the senders all letters, etc., ad
dressed tJ people who turned out to be
dead. The need for such an arrange
ment became evident from the num
ber of valuable Inclosurcs contained In
such missives, and that the old tradi
tion still lingers in the department is
evident from the fact that the bags
containing returned letters are black
"Yes, there are people who imagine
us to be mysteriously connected with
death itself, nnd some time back we
received a peculiar letter from one of
them. Within a week of having a let
ter returned to her a certain person
living in the Bame house had died, and
consequently the writer, evidently as
sociating her friend's death directly
Willi us, begged us in future never to
send back letters again, but to burn
them instead." London Answers.
The Bridal Veil.
The bridal veil Is evidently of east
ern origin, being a relic of the bridal
canopy held over the heads of the
bride nnd bridegroom. Among the Anglo-Saxons
n similar custom existed,
but if the bride was a widow It was
dispensed with. According to Saruin
usage, a fine linen cloth was laid upon
the heads of tho bride and bridegroom
and was not removed until the bene
diction hud been said. The old British
custom was to use nature's veil un
adornedthat Is, the long hair of the
bride, which was so worn by nil brides,
royal, noble aud simple. Only then
did every one behold the tressc : of
maidenhood in their entirety and for
the last time, as after marriage they
were neatly dressed on the head.
Among some the tresses were cut and
carefully stowed away ou a woman
becoming a wife. It was customary
in Itussia for village brides to shear
their locks on returning from church.
Trees and the Soil.
The soil is a resource of priceless
value, its formation on rocks is ex
ceedingly slow. According to Profes
sor J. Bowman, many glacial scratches
that were made on rock during the lust
glacial period, between 00,000 and 75,
000 years ago, are still as fresh as if
they had been made only yesterday.
Yet since the glaciers thus recorded
themselves man has come up from the
cave and the stone hammer. Seventy
thousand years is a very short time
for the development of a soli cover.
For man it means a period so great
that the mind can hardly grasp it The
cutting off of the trees exposes the
soil so that the rain beats upon it, and
since It has lost the protection that
the roots and the litter on the ground
afforded the soil is soon washed away.
In fifty years a single lumber mer
chant can deprive the race of soil that
required 10,000 years to form. Youth's
Premiums Upon Babies.
Augustus, emperor of Home, made
babies a passport to office. By the
Lex Tapia Toppaea, passed in A. D.
0, definite preference ns regards office
was given to tho fathers of satisfacto
rily largo families. Such fathers were
eligible tor office before twenty-five.
They took precedence of colleagues
with no children or fewer tnan three
and were preferred all round. The
privilege was called the "jus trlum llb
eroruni" (three children privilege), but
the qualifying number, three in Home,
was four in Italy, five In the prov
inces. Tho system, however, never
A Snow Hurricane.
The buran, or snow hurricane of the
Pamirs, is a meteorological phenome
non of great interest. Even in mid
summer the temperature during a
snow buran frequently falls to 14 de
grees F., while in one winter it drop
ped to 45 degrees below zero at the
end of January. The buran comes
with startling suddenness, the atmos
phere growing dark with whirling
snowflakes where scarcely a minute
before the sky was perfectly clear.

The original spelling of ribbon was
ribband, for It was a band that went
around the waist, inclosing or binding
the ribs. The hair ribbon is thus a
very odd verbal paradox.
