ttRST STORY OF IMAGINATION
Written by Ennana of Thebes for
Egypt's Crown Prince in 1300 B. C.
The "Tale of Two Brothers," writ
ten 3,200 years ago by the Theban
scribe, Ennana, librarian of the pal
ace to King Merenptah, the supposed
Pharaoh of the Exodus, is the oldest
work of fiction extant.
The tale was written appai'ently for
the entertainment of the crown prince,
who subsequently reigned as Seti II.
His name appears in two places on
the manuscriptprobably the only sur
viving autograph signatures of an
This piece of antique fiction, written
on nineteen sheets ot papyrus in a bold
hieratic hand, was purchased in Italy
by Mme. d'Orbiney, who sold it in
1857 to the authoiities of the British
museum, where it is now known as
the d'Orbiney papyrus.
Other specimens of ancient Egyp
tian fiction have since come to light,
-which appear to prove that the Nile
valley was not only the birthplace of
the arts and sciences, but was also th3
cradle of romance.Stray Stories.
ROOT O ALL HUMAN SUCCESS
Struggle o-f the Race to Get Away
The struggle to get away from pov
erty has been a great man-developer.
Had every human being been born
with a silver spoon in his mouthhad
there been no necessity put upon him
to workthe race would still be in
its infancy. Civilization owes more
'to the perpetual struggle of man to
get away from poverty than to any
thing else. It is not^ poverty itself,
but the effort to get"away from it,
that makes the man. We are so con
stituted that we make our greatest
efforts and do our best work while
struggling to attain that which the
heart longs for. Power is the result
of force overcome. The giant is made
strong in wrestling with difficulties.
It is impossible for one who does not
have to struggle and to fight obstacles
to develop fiber or stamina. "To live
without trial is to die but half a man."
The Saver and the Miser.
The miser is the poorest of men,
for, while he lives solely for self, he
geis less out of life than any other
man. He has money, but denies him
self the things that money can buy.
In making money the end, instead of
the means of life he narrows his pur
poses and achtevgments down to noth-
ingness. But the despicable example
of one miser nor a thousand can ever
shake the firm foundation upon which
rest wholesome saving and thrift. The
soul of thrift is saving. Most men
who have learned the trick of making
millions at a single deal first learned
how to double their pennies. To the
man who would become rich the habit
of saving, once firmly fixed, is his most
Important capital.St. Louis Star
Belgian Women Hard Workers.
In Belgium horses often cost more
than the peasantry can afford, and so
many of the women .often trudge
miles with one heavy basket slung
over their shoulders, another on their
arm, and a third balanced perfectly
on their heads. They tramp along in
the glaring heat until they reach the
neighboring market. They they find
no time to rest. Th*y empty their
baskets, never thinking that in car
rying such a load they have perform
ed a hard day's work, so eager are
they to sell their flowers, fruits, and
vegetables. Atter vending tboir wares
all day they return with three empty
baskets, one strapped to the back,
another on the head, and the third on
Roman System of Figuring.
Counting on the fingers was a reg
ular system for the young Romans.
They would make eighteen move
ments with the left hand for the num
bers below 100, and eighteen with
the right hand for those above. Two
kinds ot counting machines, called
an abacus, were also used. One was
a board strewn with sand, on which
geometrical figures were drawn The
other was a trame, with balls moved
in gioo\es to represent figures, with
a special contrivance for doing frac
tions. As teachers were not very pa
tient in those days, aiithmetic might
be &aid to have been learned less by
rule than by ferrule
Egotism a Great Power.
Egotism is the natural temptation
of all those whose individuality is
strong the man of intense desires, of
acute perception, of vigorous prefer
ences, of eager temperament, is in
danger of trying to construct his life
too sedulously on his own lines and
yet thse are the very people who
help other people most, and in whom
the hope of the race lies. Meek,
humble, timid persons, who accept
things as they are, who tread in beat
en paths who are easily persuaded,
who aie cautious, prudent and sub
missive, leave things very much as
the\ find them

CHESTNUT FLOUR OF CORSICA.
MucW Used but Produces Inferior
Kind of Bread.
The chestnut is the wheat of Cor
sica, and its flour is used in the form
of bread or polenta by the peasants
throughout the island. The chestnuts
are slowly dried over a small wo'od
fire and stored until required for
The mills are of the sim
plest construction, and consist of a
wooden water wheel whose axis turns
a millstone which crushes the shelled
chestnuts against a fixed stone.
The cheaper grades of flour are
of a dirty color owing to the pres
ence ot particles of the shells and
contain between 11 and 12 per cent of
moisture. The composition of differ
ent varieties of the flour has been
determined recently by Comte.
who finds that chestnut flour closely
approximates wheat flour in its food
value. It contains about the same
amount of starch, more fat and cellu
lose, but less nitrogenous substances
(7 to 9 per cent, as against 12 to 16
per cent in wheat flour). Chestnut
flour attiacts moisture very rapidly,
and therefore soon becomes mouldy
unless kept in air-tight vessels. It
has also the drawback of not being
easily influenced by the action of
yeast, and thus produces an inferior
kind of bread.
JUST WHAT FORM OP LIQUID?
Would Seem Something Stronger
Than Water Was Needed.
Coming through the railroad tunnel
the other day one of the passengers, a
ladj strongly opposed to the smoke
evil, began an eloquent denunciation
of the nuisance to a prominent citizen
sifting near. "Do you know," she said,
"there is a man living on the street
just above this tunnel, and he de
clares that the smoke is not an annoy
ance to him at allin fact, that It is

what do you think of that?"
"Just this, my dear madam," said
the prominent citizen, with a twinkle
in his eye, "jou know that cinders

Parnell Dreaded Infection.
This of Parnell is told by William
O'Brien: "One evening I happened
to mention at dinner that I had got
a note informing me that two of my
subeditor's children were down with
scarlatina. 'My God! O'Brien/ he
cried, almost in a panic, 'what did
you do with the letter?' When I told
him it was still in my pocket he
begged of me instantly to throw it
into the fire. Seeing how genuine
was his concern I did so. 'Now^ said
he, 'wash your hands.' This time I
found it difficult to avoid smiling. He
bounded from the dinner table and
with his own hands emptied the wat
er ewer into the basin on the wash
hand stand. 'For God's sake, O'Brien,
quick!' he cried, holding out the tow
el toward me, with an earnestness
that set the whole company in a roar.
He returned to his dinner in a state
