envious of Milton's being poet orient
He finds "sermons In stones" express
es the same idea as Wordsworth's
"the restless stone chat all day long is
heard." Calvin was a noted scientist
and peer, who died lately. Naples is

India. Shakespeare made a mistake
In mentioning Galen, who did not live
until n hundred years after his time.

saved his life by dying on the way
from York to London. When the Eng

four footed animal in the country was
a rat Monsoons are fertile gorges be

When Bjornson Died.
Bjornson's son, in describing the last
hours of his father, writes: "Now and
then the bright flame of his humor
flickered up. The doctor felt his pulse
and said it was good. With his face
beaming with humor he turned toward
us and said, 'I am the first man to die
with a good pulse.' He said one even
ing-and lt seemed as if an old wise
man was speaking with the weight of
experience, 'Now I could write-yes,
now I could write, for I have been In
the realms of death and have felt the
pain that attends death.' And when
all of us thought that the indifference
of death was upon him-my mother,
who Always gave him his food, which
he would receive, only from her, stood
at the bedside with a brooch on her
breast which she had worn at her con
firmation-then he opened his eyes and
looked at uer. He smiled, lifted bis
hand and touched the brooch. This
was the last sign to the outer world he
was able to give."
A Cold Ride.
All through his life Senator Dolllver
of Iowa had a horror of fast trains I
and possible railroad wrecks. Once he
was on a train with Vice President
Dolllver awoke in the middle of the
hight, and it seemed to him that the
train was going at terrific speed. He
climbed out of his berth and, arrayed
only in his pajamas, started down the
length of the tram to find the con
ductor and ask him to order the train |
run at less speed. It was a cold night,
but the senator did not mind that until
the door of his car snapped shut and
locked behind him and be found that
the door of the next coach was also
locked. He rode sixty-five miles locked
out in the cold of the vestibule before
he could wake up anybody to let him
in. Mr. Fairbanks finally heard his
cries for help and rescued him.-New
Necks and Legs of Animals.
With few exceptions there is a mark
ed equality between the length of the
necks and of the legs of both birds ai j*
quadrupeds, and wh?ther they be lok f" '
or short ls determined chiefly by the
place where the animal must go for
its food. This is especially noticeable
in beasts that feed constantly upon
grass, in which case the neck bas just
a slight advantage in that it cannot
hang perpendicularly down. Croco
diles, lizards and fish have practically
no necks. Fowls that feed in the
water also offer an example of this
correspondence between the members,
with the exception of swans and geese
and some Indian birds, which gather
their food from the bottom of pools
and must have long necks for that pur
pose, while the short legs make it
more convenient for them to swim.

A Story Pepys Tells.
Pepys tells in his diary that in the
reign of King Charles II. a customer
bargaining with a London merchant
for claret hired a confederate to "thun
der (which he had the art of doing
upon a deal board) and to rain and
hail-that is, make the noise of-so as
to give them a pretense of undervalu
ing their merchant's wines, by saying
this thunder ' would spoil and turn
them, which was so reasonable to the
merchant that he did abate two pis
tolls per tun for the wine lu belief of
A Mighty Difference.
Brougham used to tell an anecdote
about the flight from Waterloo. Na
poleon was greatly depressed. His aid
riding beside bim thought he might be
sorrowing over the loss of so many old
comrades at arms and tried to comfort
him by saying that Wellington also
must have lost many friends. "He has
not lost the battle," was the reply.
"Pa, what Is a futile remark?"

pose of changing the subject when his
wife complains because he has for
