Korea Also Produces Oysters That
Weigh Ten Pound Each.
While In the orient n correspondent
hnd occasion to cnll on friends who
lived near Seoul, the principal city of
Korea. lie tells the following story:
One morning my hostess, while giv
ing orders for tho necessary things
from the market for the day, mention
ed four yards of eggs. I accompanied
the steward that dny on his marketing
trip, and when tho eggs were asked
for tho grocer reached down in n bar
rel and brought out the end of a
largo straw rope. Ho measured off tho
required length on the counter, just as
a dry goods store clerk would measure
off cloth, rolled It up nnd put It In the
basket without n smile. Tho eggs were
Inside of this hollow straw rope, with
a string tied on tho outside of it be
tween each egg. This effectually pro
tected tho eggs from being broken
Another day my hostess ordered two
small" oysters for dinner. This or
der caused mo. to wonder a little, for I
knew that there would be seven to
dine, besides the servant!, but when
tho oysters arrived all was explained,
for ono weighed four and a half
pounds, and tho other five pounds. On
Inquiry I was informed that some of
the oysters on the northern side of
Korea weigh ns much as ten pounds.

Bathing and Bellowing.
Frluiillvo mnn boiled his wnter with
hot stones. Tlint was not the only uso
ho made of them, nt nny rate, if he
was a Scythian. Tho Scythian prac
tice described by Herodotus has been
claimed by some as the first recorded
case of smoking. Having spoken of n
kind of hemp that grew In the coun
try, Herodotus proceeds: "Now. th
Scythians, taking the seed of this
hemp, go into their tents nnd then
throw tho seed upon-the stones hooted
white hot. As it is thrown on It Is
burnt into smoke, producing so much
thnt no Creek vnpor bath could sur
pass it. And tho Scythians, delighting
in it, bellow. This takes tho place of
washing for litem'." It seems ns though
they had discovered the Turkish bath
nnd the cigarette.
Insects That Walk on Water.
Insects Unit walk on the. water by
means of pneumatic floats are the fa
miliar water and the pond sknter spi
der. Not many people know why they
con walk on the water. Tho pond
skater really walks on pneumatic
floats. There nre tiny hairs on tho
feet of this insect, so fine that they
cannot be seen. Unit nre arranged to
collect air. ?he amount collected In
nnd about these hnirs Is sufficient to
allow the Insect to float or walk upon
the surface of tho water. As each foot
is put down It forms n cuplike depres
sion or tiny pit In tho wnter. The foot
does not sink because tho nlr bubble
that has been formed Is too light to let
it. A tine covering of hair protects the
water spider, too, and even if it Is sub
merged In the water it Is never really
wet. Tho hair keeps n layer of nlr be
tween Its body nnd tho wnter. It looks
like n white penrl when below the sur
face. The scientific name of this curi
ous insect Is tho Velin currens. Chi
It would seem that the perils of a
lightship crew In a gale exceed even
thoso of a lighthouse keeper. Mr. Tal
bot, in his "Lightships nnd Light
houses," gives nn example of the havoc
played by one Atlantic wave In the
case of tho lightship that guards the
terrible rocky fangs known us the
"Seven Stones," which lie between
Land's End and tho Scilly isles:
"Once a wave tumbled itbonrd, crash
ed a man against tho pump, knocked
hira half senseless; picked up tho life
boat and threw It against the dock
house, nnd In so doing caught another
member of the crew, mauling his
thigh bndly In passing. Two out of
the seven men forming the crew were
thus put hors de combat by a single
Tho lightship Is a British idea, nnd
the first ever used was placed in the
mouth of the Thames in 1713.

The Widow's Dower.
It is certain that "dower," tho estate
for life which the widow acquires nt
her husband's death, was not known
among the early Saxons. In the laws
of King Edmund tho widow Is directed
to be supported wholly out of the per
sonal estate. Dower Is generally as
crlbed to the Norinuns, but It was first
Introduced into tho feudal system by
Emperor Frederick II., who was con

That is a strong statement but we'd make it stronger
if we knew how, because we are sure that the De
Laval will more than make good every claim.
We don't ask you to take our "say so." We prefer to
let the machine itself talk for us.
Why not let us set one up at your house? You can
test it yourself alongside of any other
machine you like for capacity, cleanness of
skimming, and ease of operation.
We don't ask you to buy a
