THE FIRST TEACUPS.
Had No H.incllcs. and Saucer
Were Used ns Covers.
In the middle of tin1 seventeenth cen
tury ton was introduced into l'.ngland,
ami with it came tin Chinese or "chi
na" teacup. Strangely enough, the
men who imported it from the orient
did not themselves understand the
method of its use.
The Chinese put u pineli of ten into
a largo cup without a handle. Ill led it
with hoilluK water and then inverted
a saucer over the roeeplaele, within
whose rim it closely fitted. The object
was partly to retain the heat, but
chielly to prevent the escape of the
frdKtTiici of tlie herb, which the Chi
cese found most delicious. The infu
sion was permitted to stand for live
minutes, when it was decanted into
n Roeond cup without a saucer and
John Hull, however, emphatically de
clined to take his tea in Chinese fash
ion, lie liked the appearance of the
ornamental ware upon his table, but
he insisted on placing the cup in the
saucer, like a miniature lloworpot, and
used it exclusively to drink from, pre
paring the beverage in a common in
stead of an individual receptacle.
In course of time laiglanil began the
manufacture of cups and saucers, an 1

with saucers less than throe Inches la
diameter. Py decrees one dwindle 1
und the other expanded, until in the
aiiddle of the nineteenth century the
opposite extreme was reached, and
fashionable tea services liad cups only
an inch and a half In diameter, act otu
panied by live inch saucers.
The handle of the teacup came from
Mediterranean lands. iriginaliy it
was made of thick and strong earth
enware and applied to heavy jars and
lumps. Its decorative possibilities pop
ularized, it with (J reek and Uoinnii pot
ters, who extended its use to small
amphorae and tlagons; but, as the word
"amphora" Indicates, the handle was
double. Single handles crept into use
by slow decrees and were probably ap
plied to drinking cups about the time
that coffee came into vogue in south
ern Europe, the beverage being taken
almost at the boiling point, so that
some device for lifting the cup without
burning the lingers was found desira

Odd Romance of Benedello Marcello,
the Venetian Composer.
Benedello Marcello, one of the most
famous Venetian composers, fell in
,Vve with a beautiful girl named Leo
nora Manfrottl, who married Paolo
Seranzo, a Venetian noble. She died
a short time after her marriage, a vic
tim to the harsh and jealous treatment
of her husband.
Her body was laid out in state in
one of the churches, and her lover
actually succeeded in stealing the
corpse and conveying it to a ruined
crypt In one of the islands, and here
he sat day and night by his lost love,
singing and playing to her, as though
by the force of his art he could recall
her to life.
Leonora hud a twin sister, Eliade,
who was so like her that her closest
friends could scarcely distinguish them.
One day Eliade heard a singer in a
gondola singing so exquisitely that she
traced the gondola to the deserted is
land, and there she learned later the
fate of her sister's corpse and the iden
tity of Marcello. Aiihfl by a servant,
Eliade substituted herself for her sis
ter's body, and when Marcello returned
and called Leonora to awake lie did
not ask in vain, for apparently she rose
alive from the eollin. Marcello when
he found out the delusion was quite
satisfied and married Eliade, but his
happiness was short lived, as he died a
few years afterward. London Tele

Some of these inventions might bo
put, and vo believe will yet ho put,
to end:: which would add to the com
fort and facilities of life. Hut put, as
tiny tire, to the work of destruction
they are dangerous to all true pro
gress. A veil known writer has re
cently said: "The history of modern
civilization shows that while we can
only trust individualism to produce 1
discovery, wo absolutely cannot trust ;
it to apply discovery without sonic i
suit of check, in the interests of
health and happiness." The chock ho
suggests is that of the "State." The
suggestion is good as far as it goes.
Hut it does not go far enough. More j
is needed. And that is; the fear mid j
love ol Cod in the human soul. The
slate can provide repressive laws:
but only the religion of Jesus Christ
can furnish men with the spirit that
will make such laws unnecessary. And
not until that religion litis full play in
and full power over, the human family
will every progressive movement ho
an upward one, as well as a forward
one. Hut how slow wo are to learn
this: to learn the spiritual relation
and significance there is to things we
regard as only material inventions.
There can scarcely ho a greater folly
than for man to think of this or that
invention in terms alone of things
material. Every material invention
lias, in the last analysis, a relation to
the soul and spirit of man. For ev
ery outward change a material Inven
tion brings, it also brings an inward
change, which though more subtle, is
none the less real. Iiooth Tarking
ton, writing, the other day, of the au
tomobile, stiid, useful as it is, "it does
not add to the beauty of the world,
nor to life of men's souls."
Hut it is here, and with it. many
other far more wonderful inventions,
and the world is going to he a very
diflerent world because they arc herr.
And they going to make a difference
in the world.
Hut if they are going to cause men
to build life on other foundation than
that of the grace and truth of the re
ligion of Jesus Christ, the change
which they will produce will not be
for the better. Cleverness divorced
from religion "and righteousness is
hound in the end to bo disastrous to
civilization. Someone said, in my
home, within a few days, after Ger
many declared war, that the German
Emperor was, without doubt, the
greatest genius of the modern worm.
Without going that length, we must
admit that he is a mighty clover man.
Hut what litis his great, self-seeking
cleverness accomplished? It has
wasted lair lands. It has deserted
happy homes. It has made many
good women widows, and many young
children orphans. It lias broken
hearts, and dealt out death and des
truction beyond what the world has
ever known before. If the modern
world is to have hotter men and
women in it; a citizenship worthy of
the name, righteous and spiritual, its
life must be built on the foundation
which Jesus Christ has laid for it.
Building on that foundation, it will

P-tit not all things produced by
man's inventive genius which may
n em lo contribute to human progress
are actual contributions to real, true
human progress. Many inventions
which have helped to make things
more lively in the world, have not
heined to make human life more alive
vviih the only life worth living. That
only is a com riliUl ion to real progress
whic h while it gives a forward impe
tus to mankind, gives to it also an
upward impetus. Whatever adds to
the well-being of life using the word
:. " in its broadest, and most vital
sense is a contribution lo progress.
Whatever docs not contribute to life,
in this sense, is, at best, a doubtful
lac; or, and, certainly, not an un
mixed gain to humanity. As we all
know, and with sadness of heart, not
only are there constructive inventions
but there also are destructive inven
tions. Tlie present war is bringing
that fact homo to us, with a venge
ance. War lias always been terrible;
so terrible as to ...alio Sherman's def
inition of it anything but a figment, of
the imagination. And it is the awful
eiiitines of war which are the produc
tions of modern inventive genius that
lias made ii more terrible than ever.
