Lemons are one of the most useful

Charts for Commercial Geography.
Commercial geography as It is now
widely taught ia the public schools by
listing the various imports and ex
ports of countries and the products of
different cities fails to give a clear
Idea of the relative importance of the
materials listed. It frequently hap
pens that the second or third item
on a list may have only one tenth the
importance of the first Item. Because
the three names are given one afte?
the other, the pupil is quite likely to
consider the three items of equal im
portance, just as three persons may
be of different height, yet of about the
same importance. The graphic meth
od judiciously applied to school geog
raphy and to genera? commercial geog

ference in the student's grasp of the

Polar explorers now have their pa

They fixed upon St. Genest, who suf

an odd reason, but not more odd than
many which have weighed in other

Digestion During Sleep.
Digestion goes on effectively during
sleep. The evening meal is digested
during the night. The midday meal,
especially when it is heavy, causes
drowsiness in some persons. The
proof that digestion is active in the
night is the fact that waste is gen
erally accumulated in the morning.
Furthermore, in the case of persons
who have died during the night, the
autopsy shows that digestion is fur
ther advanced the longer the period
intervening between the last meal and
death; from this fact the probable
time of death has been indicated at

Snake Farms In Tropics.
Two snake-infested countries, India
and Brazil, maintain "snake farms" at
whioh a scientific study of serpents is
being pursued. The venom from the
poisonous ones is extracted and made
into a serum for curing persone who
have been bitten. The Brazilian insti

at an expense of $40,000 a year. Be

Danger in Overripe Clover.
Although crimson clover ie an ex
cellent forage plant and is eagerly
eaten by many animals, it is nearly
always fatal to horses and mules when
eaten in the full ripe stage. The rea
son for this is that as the clover
reaches maturity, the little hairs with
which it is covered become hard and
indigestible. On being eaten they form
into hard balls somewhere in the
digestive tract and cause a stoppage
which resists every known treatment
