A ?tory Showing How Well Developed
Was Its Power.
A talent for remembering names
and faces is ? cost convenient one,
especially for a man in public life.
Few men have it in greater measure
than had Mr. Blaine. There are a
thousand stories of his wonderful
readiness in recalling persons, and
here is one not before in print:
In the early sixties he was travel
ing in a sleeping car through Cana
da. Deep in the Canadian forest
the engine broke down, and there
was a delay; of several hours. A lit
tle girl of
five years was a fellow
Mr. Blaine made friends
with the child and to pass the time
of waiting proposed that they should
go in search of spruce gum. They
came back laden with sticky spoils,
which were shared with their com
Fifteen years went by, and the
child had grown to be a college sen
ior without again seeing Mr. BUine.
One afternoon she heard him speak'
at a large public meeting, and at the
close of the address sho made her
way to him. She said simply :
"Mr. Blaine, I don't suppose you
will remember me. I am Margaret
Quick as a flash came the answer,
emphasized with a hearty hand
"Have you ever tasted any spruce
gum since that was as good as that
Of course the recognition made
that girl his friend for life.
Mr. Blaine was once asked how
he acquired the power. He said that
he was not conscious ox any especial
effort to gain it unless by cultivat
ing the habit of always thinking
over carefully each night the events
of the day and the persons who
had taken part in them. Probably
a brief written record of these would
help still further in the strengthen
ing of the power. Certain it is that
the confirmed egotist who thinks
and talks of nothing outside himself

memory for the names and faces of
The Evolution of the Sword.
As men m early times fought
Hand to hand, the oldest specimens
of the sword are short. In fact, the
sword is probably but an evolution
of the club, which, at first made of
hardwood, was gradually sharpened
on one and then on both sides, bo as
to inflict a more deadly wound.
iWood gave way to stone, which in
turn was displaced by bronze, iron
and finally steel.
The sword increased in length as
men became more civilized and
showed a disposition to fight farther
away from each other, which re
quired moro dexterity in the use of
the weapon. Some specimens we
have of swords of the middle ages
are almost if not quite as long ?s
the warriors who wielded them.
During the fifteenth century the sci
ence of fencing was invented, when
the sword in the form of a rapier
reached the highest point of devel
A Collection of Crowns.
A whole collection of crowns is
kept in the Russian royal palace.
iThese relics of departed greatness?
they nearly all oome from countries
which have been subjugated by the
[Russians?are kept in what is known
as the "throneroom." Here are
shown the crowns of Poland, Ka
zan, Georgia, Astrakhan and Persia,
h sides the thrones and other royal
insignia too numerous to mention.
Besides, the crowns of conquered na
tions, those of almost all the czars
may be seen in that vast treasure
The most curious one of the lot
is the double crown made for Peter
the Great and his half witted broth

Use of Pigeons For Speculation.
In modern times the pigeons have
* been used for purposes of commerce
and speculation as Well as war. In
1770 a shrewd Italian had the win
ning numbers in the lotteries thus
sent to him, and it is a* well known
fact, that the London branch, of the
. great Rothschild banking house was
able, by means of carrier pigeons, to
. receive news of the victory ; at Ws^

government and to realize an enor

A Big Insect.
^he biggest insect of its kind i?
th. world is the hercules beetle of
SoAmerica, which grows to bo
six inches in length. It ia said,
whather truthfully or not, that
great numbers of these creatures
are sometimes seen on the mum
i maea tree, rasping the rind from the
slender branche?, by working around
them with their noms until they
cause the juice to flow. This juice
they drink to intoxication and thus
fall senseless to the ground.

MONKEYS ARE DANGEROUS.
In Spite of Apparent Friendliness,
Th?y Are Treacherous.
Monkeys are not classed as savage
animals, but nevertheless the keep
ers of the zoo are as chary of enter
ing a monkey* cage as they are of go
ing into the domicile of the leopards
or any of the smaller species of the
cat"tribe. The ''monks'' in "spite of
their apparent friendliness are a
treacherous crew, and many an un
wary keeper has nursed painful
wounds as a result of boldly ventur
ing into the apartments allotted to
A little precautionary action is
necessary to protect even the man
who feeds them should he have oc
casion to enter the dens. The mon
keys will conceitedly attack anyone
who ventures among them and by
force of numbers will endanger the
life of tho bold visitor.
Whenever a keeper desirc3 to go
among the animals he first gives ut
terance to a hissing sound. The
hereditary enemy of tho "monk" is
the pnake, and at the first hiss the
iittlo animals will scalo the heights
of the cago in terror. By a judicious
use of the awe inspiring sound the
attendant can keep the monkeys
out of tho way for a briof period.
When a long stay in tho cage is nec
essary, the keeper generally borrows
a bull snake, a harmless but formi
dable looking variety, from the rep
tile house, and with this coiled
about his waist is safe from any
covert attack while at work.?Phil

gested to one of them this story of
Honest Abe, which the narrator
says he had from his father:
Lincoln and his cabinet wero in
session; but, as he had anticipated
no discussions of importance, the
president left word that he would
receive cards. As ho supposed, the
meeting was wholly social.
While they were gathered about
the table a servant brought in two
cards, and Lincoln commanded that
the callers be admitted. When they
appeared, he found one to be a tall,
spare man, the other one much un
dersized. After a moment's chat

of the providence of the Creator,"
remarked Lincoln impressively as
he turned again to.his ministers.

short legs, yet he has made the legs

The Juryman Was Right.
A funny story is related of a jury
man who outwitted a judge, and
that without telling an untruth. He
came breathlessly into the court.
=s "Oh, my lord," he said, "if you
can excuse me, pray do. I don't
know which w?l die first, my wife
or my daughter."
"Dear me, that's sad," said the
innocent judge. ^'Certainly; you
The next day 'the juryman was
met by a friend, who in a sympa
thetic voice asked:
"How's your wife?"
"She's all right, thank you."
"And your, daughter ?"
"She's all right too. Why do you
'fWhy, yesterday you said that
you did not know which would die
first." I .
"Nor do I. That is a problem

First Come, First Served.
"Hold up a ring and let them
jump for it." The cynical phrase
was tested by a popular American
preacher, as is stated in an Ameri
can Methodist journal. The preach
er had lost one wife and wanted an
other. None of the circumlocution
ary cumbrous matrimonial adver
tisement for him. He simply rose
in the pulpit and said, "I am a can
didate for matrimony, and if any
woman in this congregation would
care to take me let her rise." She
rose?two of her. The minister,
with a critical speaker's eye, timed
the rising's and called on" the first.

? STY ON THE EYE.
How It Develops and* How It Should
A ?ty is a little abscess at the
edge of the eyelid. There are gener
ally far more pain and swelling than
are proportionate to the seriousness
of tho case. It is tho result of tho
plentiful supply of blood \essels to
the eyelid and the closeness of its
texture which cause great pain in
tho process of swelling. The little
abscess is red and very tender, and
usually in a fow days it bursts and
discharges matter unies.? treatment
can be carried out early and ener
getically enough to arrest the in
flammation. As soon as the sty
has opened the pain and swelling
subside. Sties point to some de
rangement in health. They occur
in people who have a predisposition

occur one after tho other for several
At. the very beginning of tho -at
tack the application of something
cold, such as ice wrapped in a bit
of oil silk, laid over tho eye, may cut
short tho inflammation. But ex
cept at the very earliest stage this
cannot b? done, and the best treat
ment and that which gives most re
lief is the application of moist heat
in the *orm of a poultice or hot fo
mentations made of poppy heads till
the sty bursts of itself or is opened.
The general health must have at
tention, and ten drops of the tinc
ture of s'teel in water three times a
day and some mild aperient before
breakfast arc often the most bene
ficial form of treatment. ? Isabel

A Cat and a Mirror.
A man who owns a remarkably
fine cat gave this illustration of its
He put the cat on a table in front
of a small glass. Its first manifes
tation after it saw its reflection was
of surprise. It siared at it for a mo
ment and then went behind the
glass, evidently to find the other
cat. Then it returned to ils beat in
front and looked attentively for a
minute or two at the image. Sud
denly it darted around the glass,
but, finding no cat there, returned
to the front again.
Keeping its eyes fixed steadily on
its image, it began feeling behind
the glass with its paw, first in one
direction and then in another. See
ing the paw of the image - on the
glass move just as its own did, it
was evidently about concluding that
the image was its own, and it then
began various movements to fully
satisfy itself. It raised one paw and
then the other, licked them and
touched the glass with them and
moved its head about. Satisfied ap
parently that it had solved the mys
tery, it presently walked calmly
Art In Tolling Lies.
Telling the truth is an art, but
not.nenrly so diflBcult an art as tell
ing lied. It is within reach of any
man's power, if he will take time
and pains, to reiai-e the thing that
is. It takes a man of imagination
end strong memory to bring forth
the thing that is not Besides, the
liar cannot carry his lie all over the
world'and back to tho creation. At
some point or other ho must piece it
on to the universal truth, and to do
that neatly he must be a good work
man. But this is only part of the
greater question as to vice and vir
tue generally. Virtue is for all who
love it. In order to become an ac
complished villain a man must have
natural aptitude, carpful training
and immense powers of application,
and at any time the villain may be
ruined as a villain by the unexpect
ed coming to life of conscience.?

a look of alarm. Apprehensively the

"In misery?" echoed the man.
"Yes," she replied. 'I was vac
