The Professor met us at the station,
when we arrived at our village. We
gasped when we saw him. "He must
be a Professor of ploughing or hay

thin wagged a billy-goat beard, and
he was for all the world the figure of
the typical farmer. We later found
out that early in his youth-he was
now about seventy-he had taught in
the village school; and that the title
of "Professor" had clung to him ever
since. However, nobody could have

make us think that if the originals in
any way resembled them it was well
that they were dead and gone. And
they hung on every available foot of

I. But Mrs. Burton demurred to this.
She is a kind-hearted woman. "It

Venus has caused a lot of trouble
in the world, and she brought it into
our cottage on the Sound. The Pro
fessor was a deacon of the severe old
school. He came to the cottage next
day to see if we wanted anything,
and his horrified eyes fell upon our
Venus. It caused him more alarm
than his ancestral oil paintings had
caused us. He stood for a moment as

him in wonder, and then he made a
mad rush for the wall and began to

parents and other relatives and hur

And they did not. He took all his

she heard-a timid knock at the par

lt Was Known and Used Many Centu
: rles Ago.
Herodotus, 'the father of history, al
though he was a very close observer
and wrote of almost everythlug com
ing under bis eyes, does not any
where speak of borax or of what we
know as such. Yet there is no doubt
that it was known aud used In his
time and earlier. In the desert re
gions, " consisting of Old lake beds In
Thibet and Asia Minor, and from the
volcanic regions of Tuscany, in Italy,
the world's supply of borax was ob
tained until" about fifty years ago,
wh?n North and South America began
to present fields nearer home. The
favorite"^fegions for its existence, in
p?ying quantities, occur most general
ly .where old, dry lakes are found, sit
uated in volcanic regions. Italy-is an
exception to this; and, although ver
dure is abundant at Castlenuevo and
elsewhere near by where boraic acid
is produced, yet the region is volcanic,
and gases are constantly emanating
from the numerous orifices that
abound over a large tract of country.
In Italy borax, in solution, is produced
from the waters of many springs; in
Asia Minor and Thibet it is obtained
as a white powder and in a crystal
lized form from the old, dry lake beds.
On the Sea of Marmora there ar?
large deposits of borate of lime, in-,
which there exists a large percentage
of boracic acid." Of late years an Eng
lish company has secured these de
posits, aud for some years has been
profitably producing borax from them.
As might be expected in such a coun
try, borax was discovered In many
places in the high, dry, desert plateaus
,'of South America as early as 1825.
About 1833 deposits were discovered
fat Ascotan, in Bolivia, and about the
same time borax discoveries were
made in Tem and Chili, where, by
rude methods, crystallized borax was
made in limited quantities; the quan
tity of borax then used in the world,
compared with what is used now, was
small, but the prices realized were
high, being in most countries from 30
cents to $1 a pound.
A strange feature about ' borax Is"
that legions producing it have in no
case as yet been exhausted, the min
eral in the old lake regions continuing
to send up borax from below as an
alkaloid, and where worked this year
lt may be worked again In the year
following. Especially if there be any
precipitation of snow or rain at any
time of the year, the. waters will
penetrate the soil and produce chemi
cal action that brings the borax, in
either a powdered or crystallized state,
to the surface.-Mines and Mining.

In poor attire she was and poverty

her environment, but there was a
rich beauty in her face, and the sen

give warmth and color to the thin and
faded gown she wore.
Her little room was high up, and
near its one window she sat by a
small table on which stood a typewrit
er. A few sheets of paper were
strewn around, and half a page on the
machine showed her work had ended
with no more to follow.
She sat with her hands folded in her
lap-clenched, if the tense lines were
read aright-and gazed helplessly and
hopelessly out toward the gray sky
that seemed to come so close down,
and yet was so far away. Tear stains
were on her cheeks where the pink
was fast fading, and what was gentle
in her face was growing harder as she
fought day by day and night by night
the desperate fate that was crowding
her to the wall.
That temptation was hers could be

which she wore around her neck. She

into the face so like her own, the
tears came to ber eyes again, and
throwing her head, upon her arms on
the typewriter, she sobbed aloud.

name is taken from the Greek word
ephemeros, which means histing only

beautiful of insecte.

From a Jacky's Diary.
Otto lloH'miester, son of Mrs. Carrie
Ilou'm?ester, 310 Blackford street, and
who is a sailor on the I!. S. gunboat
Prairie, has written his motlier a num.
ber of interesting letters in the form
of a diary of a 10,000 mile^trip on the
gunboat in the tropical seas. Hoff
miester joined the navy in Indianapo
lis. His diary in part is as follows.
..We were given our first 'liberty.' or
permission to go ashore, at Trin'dad,
Port of Spain, Jan. 24, 1002. The
streets in Trinidad are of heavy block
pavement and are kept clean by a
species of bird called "turkey buzzard,'
which is as large as the ordinary buz
zard. It is a penalty to kill one of
these birds.- There are many coolie
slaves here, brought from India, .ind
after five years of bondage they are
given transportation back to their na
tive land, though very few take advan
tage of this offer.
"We took a trip to the leper hospi
tal, which is situated just beyond the
outskirts of the city, and saw many
distressing and pitiful sights among
the lepers. The hospital resembles a
fine palace, and it .s in charge of the
sisters o? charity.
"After leaving Trinidad we were
again given shore leave at 'Pitch
Lake,' La Brea, which, by the way, is
one of the seven wonders of the world.
The lake is about a half mile from the
town and the road leading to it is
made entirely of pitch, and over seven
acres was used in the course of con
struction. The lake looks like a vast
pond. There are many shallow places
in it filled with water and there are
several small islands covered with
tropical vegetation. The lake is of
very solid substance, much like black
"One of the overseers told our party
that tiiey had dug down to a depth of
?5 feet and had not struck bottom
He said they had been digging in the
same place for the past seven years
and that the place tills up again with
pitch twenty-four hours after they
stop. The pitch is taken from the lake
to a steam plant, where it is melted
and run into barrels. The barrels are
then loaded onto overhead cable cars
and transported to the docks, where
they are loaded into vessels and ship
ped all over the world.
"When we were 'crossing the line,'
as the sailors term the equator, we
were hailed at 8.30 a. m. by Neptune
Rex, king of the sea.
"Promptly at 9 a. m. the following
day all hands were 'piped to quarters'
to receive King Neptune, who came
aboard surrounded by his staff and at
tendants. They paraded to the 'fo'cas
tle,' where a large platform had been
raised for the occasion. The roll was
then called and each sailor was taken
up before Neptune and asked if he
knew of any reason why he should not
be made a true and loyal subject to
'his Majesty King Neptune.'
'Each sailor replied that he did not,
and he was then turned over to the
'barbers' of Neptune's staff and
shaved, first being lathered with a
mixture of soap, tar, Hour and mo
lasses, which was put on with a white
wash bn:sh. After being shaved, each
man was placed In a large tank of salt
water and held there until the next
victim was ready."-Indianapolis Sun.
Playing Cards In Russia.
In Russia the manufacturo of play
ing cards is an imperial monopoly. In
1848 14,000 packs were issued daily,
but the demand was so much in ex
cess of this that a petition was ad
dressed to the czar praying for a still
more liberal supply. Among the card
devotees the Russian soldiers are
conspicuous. They commonly carry
packs in their pockets, but when rhere
ls an actual call to t?rras and they pre
pare themselves for the baitletield
they make it a point to get rid of all
their cards. This is due to a super
stltion amounting to conviction,
which leads them to believe that to
retain them upon their persons at
such a time would be to court gi ave
disaster.-Ohio Valley Manufacturer.

would observe results they would find
that thc doctors' prescriptions do not
perform the many cures they are given

vised McElree's Wine of Cardui and Tried
ford's Black-Draught, ?nd so I took it and
have every reason to thank him for a new
life opened up to me with restored health,
and it only took three months to cure me."
