His Majesty's Fault.
In tbe reign of Francis I. of Franco
quickness of wit was often more
promptly rewarded than actual merit.
The monk, Rcgnier Mainus. did not
lack merit, but bo owed hist first ad
vancement nevertheless to a clever re
tort. Francis, who was very fond of tbo
game of tennis, was playing a match
one day with Mainus. The monk final

"to think that such a stroke should be
made by a mere monk!"
"Hut. sire," replied tbo monk, who

with bis racket, "it is your majesty's
own fault that the stroko was not
made by an abbot."
A week later Mainus received bis ap
pointment as abbot of Beaulieu.
Reis and the Telephone.
While Hell invented the telephone
and Edison. Iterliuer, Marconi and
many others have improved it, the
truo inventor and discoverer of the
principles of telephony was a German
scientist to whom too llttlo credit has
been given Philip Reis. In 1S!1 Reis
exhibited a partially articulate electric
telegraph at Frankfort and showed
that variations In an electric current
caused by a vibrating membrane could
reproduce the necessary vibrations.
Reis transmitted musical sounds and
even words. Kllsha Gray, whoso ap
plication for a patent on the telephone
was filed iu Washington only a few
hours after Professor Roll's applica
tion, improved Reis' telephone, but it
is said that neither Rols nor Gray
reaped any financial reward from their
Inventions. New York World.
Mount Etna Gives Ice as Well as Fire.
Mount Etna can be kind as well as cru
el. For half the year the great mountain
is covered with snow, and supplies of
coolness are drawn from this source in
summer by the half baked inhabitants
of tho plains below. A curious dis
covery arising out of the extreme beat
of ISL'8 was made in that year. A
search being made on the slopes of tho
mountain for an additional supply of
snow, it was found that a huge field
of ice had been blanketed by lava iu
somo remote ago aud thus prevented
from melting. It was suggested by au
eminent geologist of tho time that tho
ico bad been formed from a mass of
drift snow, afterward covered by an
enormous thickness of lava, tbo heat
of which was kept from the snow by
an intervening layer of volcanic sand.
Showers of Stars.
There are no showers of stars. Pro

Tbo nucleus of tho comet bad disin
tegrated into separate particles. I have
Been many hundreds of meteors. Tho
smallest was Just visible in a micro
scope, and the largest, in the world's

of stouo or iron, and some are nickel
and other metals. Rut if a star should

The Valiant Eagle.
Tho eagle has been used ns a device
on royal banners from very remote
times. It was tho ensign of tho nn
dent kings of Persia and of Rabylon.
Tho Romans adopted various other
llgures on their camp standards, but
Marlus made tho eagle tbo chief en
sign of the legions, and to tbe subdi
vision assigned various other figures.
Constantino was tbo first emperor to
Introduce tho two beaded eaglo as a
royal or national device to indicnto
that ills empire had two heads or
kings, but was nevertheless ono body
or empire. The two headed eagle is
now used to signify a double empire.
Austria claims to bo tbo successor of
tbe Caesars of Rome, and also of
Charlemagne, and tho ono bead repre
sents the eastern and tho othet tho
western empire. Russia also has a
doublo headed eagle, having added
that of Poland to her own. Loudon
Evolution of the Checker.
That formidable person, tbe chancel
lor of tho exchequer, who levies toll in
the house of commons today, draws his
lofty lineage from the reign of Henry
III. Henry, thinking It desirable that
tbo lord high treasurer should be pro
vided with a guardian, gave him ono in
the name of a "check." Tbo checker,
keeping bis name, has now become the
cornerstone of tho treasury edifice.
The lord high treasurer disappeared
with tho Duke of Shrewsbury, whom
Queen Anno nppolnted a few days be
fore her death. It was George I. who
put tho otilee of lord high treasurer In
commission in 1714, aud iu commis
sion it has slnco remained. Five per
sons have tho honor the first lord,
three Junior lords and the chancellor.
Rut tho chancellor proved too strong
for all of them, and the board, once a
reality, has, like tbo board of trade,
long slnco ceased to meet London
Seventeen Year Locusts.
Tbo song of tbo cicada is tho noisiest
in the Insect world. Tho seventeen
year cicada has been called the Rip
Van Winkle of the insect -world. From
Its tiny eggs there Issues a creaturo
with soft white body and molo-llko
front legs. It hurries to the ground
and disappears beneath its surfaco
sometimes to a depth of twenty feet
For seventeen years it digs its way
around in absolute darkness and then
comes to tho surfaco to join in a mar
riage revelry of a few brief weeks. It
is a full 11 edged creature of tho air,
though encased still In grave clothes
of parchment, but it soon splits these
up the back, pulls Itself out, dries its
powerful wings and tiles away with
the whirr of an ncrop'ano to live but a
few brief weeks. National Geograph

Advice From Mark Twain.
There is a gem in a letter from Mark
Twain to Will M. Clemens, who want
ed some advice:
"How can I advise another man
wisely out of such iA:apital as a llfo
filled with mistakes? Advise him how
to avoid tho like? No, for opportuni
ties to make tho same mistakes do not
happen to any two men. Your own
experiences may possibly teach you,
but another man's can't. I do not
know anything for n person to do but
Just peg along, doing the things that
offer and regretting them the next day.
It Is my way und everybody's." New
Things Men Hate to Do.

The Inhabitants of French Switzer
