BIBLE NAMES DROPPED
LATELY 8EEM TO BE OUT OF FA
VOR WITH PARENT.
Such Puritanic "Handles" as Ebenezer
and Zadok, for Instance, Do Not
Seem to Appeal as They
Once Did.
A certain set of Christian names
taken from the Scriptures have been
used so long that we do not think of
them as Bible names. Among them are
Adam, Moses, Samuel, David, Daniel,
Solomon, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
Others taken from the saints, like Pe
ter, John, Stephen and Matthew, orig
inally given to children because they
were born on the saint's day, are still
so common that we think of them as
English names.
These names antedate the use of
surnames, as may be Inferred from
the fact that nearly all of them have
given rise to patronymics, like Ja
cobson, Peterson and Stevenson. In
the twelfth century missionaries sent
out by the authorities used to bap
tize whole villages at once, and to
save time Invested all the men with
the name of John or some other saint,
and the women usually Mary or Mar
tha. To distinguish the Johns some
additional name like Short or Strong
of White or Black was given him by
the neighbors, and so Christian names
and surnames were united.
After the reformation It became the
fashion among the Puritans to give
children the names of characters like
the Old Testament, and odd 'ones like
Melchisldek or Barzlllal were pre
ferred. Among these were Abel, Levi,
Jesse, Amos, Asa, Isaiah, Ephralm, Gid
eon, Malachl, Abner, Hosea, Ezekiel,
Jeremiah, Zachartah, Asher, Eli, and
hundreds of others.
Kor some reason the use of these
names has largely ceased. We can un
derstand why Ebenezer has been
dropped, though once one of the most
common of names In New England,
for It Is decidedly unmelodious. No
-nodcrn girl could fall In love with an
Ebenezer. But most of the Puritan
Uible names have a strong, manly ring,
and have been borne by able men.
That they are going out of use Is very
evident from comparing the early
class lists of Yale with later ones.
Twenty-five classes in tho early eight
eenth century, numbering 373 gradu
ates, show 119, with Puritan given
names. This 1b about 30 per cent.
Ten classes In the twentieth century,
lumbering 3,037, show but 25 given
lames of this class, or less than one
ler cent. Ebenezer and Barzillal have
completely disappeared. Nor is Pele
,iah or Zadok to be found.
We can only hope that the descend
mts of these ancient worthies have
nherlted some of their sterling quali
ties, though they do not perpetuate
'.he name.
Kept Accounts by Strings.
It was the custom of the Aztecs to
keep their accounts by means of
strings. A single knot was ten, two
iingle knots twenty, and so on. The
hundreds were indicated by double
knots. The color of the string Indi
cated what the numbers referred to.
Soldiers were red, gold yellow, silver
white and corn green. This method
is still In use on the Sierras of the
Argentina, where the herdsmen keep
tale of their charges in a similar way.
Several strands depend from one, the
ilrst of these strands being reserved
for bulls, the next for cows, the milk
and dry being differentiated, the next
for sheep and so on. Knots were
probably among the first methods of
man to record figures the knot or the
mark on a bit of stick. In the Eng
lish hop gardens the tallyman (gen
erally the local schoolmaster) goes
around with the tally and its mark
and the most civilized Chlcagoan still
ties a knot In the handkerchief when
we are asked "to be sure and remem
ber." Women Climb for a Hat.
At the annual reunion of the Welker
family, held at the family homestead,
near Sbarpsburg, Pa., a tree-climbing
contest was held among the female
descendants of the family.
The prize that spurred the women
on to grand efforts was a new fall hat,
one of the latest creations In millinery
and valued at $2C. The winner turned
up In Mrs. Meta Welker, who weighs
more than 300 pounds.
After several contestants bad tried
for the dainty piece of millinery, which
was placed on an upper limb of a big
oak, and failed, Mrs. Welker, who was
a great climber at one time, essayed
to take a chance.
Carefully working her way up foot
by foot-, the big woman, who outweigh
ed the other contestants two to one,
finally reached the hat and brought it
down. She was winded and nearly
done up, but she held on to the hat.
Dahlia Growing In Favor.
Dahlias, probably the dearest of all
fall blossoms to the amateur grower,
are increasing In popularity.
Every year, the growers say, the
dahlia is coming more in demand.
Fartiy because it grows m sucn a
variety of types and partly because
't lends Itself equally well to garden
decorations and cut flower purposes,
the amateur suburban horticulturist
constantly finds new use for It.
As the demand has grown the flower
has r.eceived Increased attention from
growers until this season the number
of varieties developed reached 800.
For a long time the castus dahlia
has been developed to the neglect of
the small densely flowered variety of
other years.
MUST ALWAYS BE A HEAD
Well for Worker to Remember That
Obedience to Orders Should Bo
First Consideration,
If you are working for a concern, re
member there must be Borne head,
some one to give directions, and Bomo
one is responsible. Tour duty Is to
obey them. Your value lies In doing
what you are told, says a writer In tho
Philadelphia Telegram. Get tho habit
of listening attentively to whatever
your employer tells you. If you think
he is making a mistake, go to him and
tell him, and if he tells you he knows
he Is right, then carry out his Instruc
tions. You will find in most cases
the man who thinks for you is right,
for ho at least is making an honest
effort to carry you and your fellow
workers along the road toward suc
cess. Mlrabeau once said, "if there was no
honesty, it would be Invented as a
means of getting wealth."
In the beginning of a country's civ
ilization sturdy, fearless men go out
Into the wilderness ta battle with na
ture. With axe and gun they fight her
into subjection, tame her, and lay the
foundations for communities, for fu
ture cities. In that early period, when
man's battle is with nature, the best
law Is that of "the survival of the fit
test," or "each for himself." Later,
however, as a lono settler in a section
Is joined by newcomers, they build
their cabins in groups; they huddle
their homes together for mutual pro
tection against the outside common
foe.
So a road is needed to guide the
worker through 'the wilderness of
work but the worker must, as Emer
son states, "Finish every day and be
done with it. You have done what you
could. Some blunders and absurdities,
no doubt, crept In. Forget them as
soon as you can. Tomorrow will be a
new day. Begin It well and serenely,
and with too high a spirit to be cum
bered with your old nonsense. This
day is all that is good and fair. It Is
too dear, with Its hopes and invita
tions, to waste a moment on the yes
teidays." Silk Came From Persia.
Wrought silk was brought from Per
sia to Greece In 323 U. C. It was
known In Rome at the time of Tiber
ius, when the senate prohibited the
d e of plate of mabslve gold, and for
bade men to debase themselves by
wearing silk, lit only for women. Hel
iogabalus first wore a garment of silk
In 220 A. D. Silk was at tlrst of the
t.ame value with gold, weight for
weight, and was believed to grow on
trees. Silkworms were brought from
india to 'Europe in the sixth century.
Charlemagne sent Offa, king of Mer
cla, a gift of two silk vests. The man
ufacture was encouraged by Roger,
king of Sicily, at Palermo, when the
Sicilians not only bred the silkworms,
but spun and wove the silk. The man-
ifacture bpread Into Italy and Spain,
and also Into the south of France a
.lttle before the reign of France I.,
.:bout 1510; and Henry propagated
nulberry trees and silkworms through-
ut the kingdom about 1G00. In Eng
'and silk mantles were worn hy some
.vomon of the nobility at a ball at
Ceuilworth Castle, In 12SC.
Choose Your Reading Carefully.
Don't trust your reading to some
thing that you can pick up. Have a
bcok of good writing that deals with
eal topics of knowledge and wisdom,
t should be a family law that only
he instructive and uplifting things
ihouki be read in the home. Reading
joes directly Into a person's life, mak
.ng him what It Is empty, frivolous,
witless or vain. Of course, one must
'lave some lightness and humor, but
liese should be the exception. There
la nothing that so weakens the mind
as this continual joking the everlast
'ng laugh over trivial things. The
true rule Is to meditate upon what
one has read, but what sort of medita
tion will one get out of a lot of jokes?
Heading that doesn't inspire thought
of a serious nature would better be
omitted. It would be Infinitely better
if one would lounge about on the
grass and the porch and watch tho
English sparrows than read only what
tickles the empty mind.
Bibulous Judge.
Justice Darling suggests that tho
3aying, "As sober as a judge," origi
nated from the fact that 100 years or
so back Judges wore the only sober
people in the country. North of the
Tweed, where the saying Is also cur
rent, judges were certainly not con
spicuous for sobriety. Andrew Lang
relates that "a great Scottish judge
was once compelled to abstain from
alcohol for six weeks. He then discov
ered that for 30 years of a learned and
respected and valuable career he had
never been for one hour really sober.
Ho had his 'morning' when he rose,
his '12 hours' at noon. On the bench
he and the other judges solemnly and
dutifully absorbed their bottle (say a
bottle and a Scots pint) of port. Then
he dined and sat over the claret till
he titubated to bed. Then he rose,
had no tub, and had hU morning glass
of whisky or brandy, and so on."
Teaching the People.
Caroline Hedger, M. D., of the Ken
tucky state board of health, says that
with the co-operation of the women's
clubs of the state, the board will en
deavor to educate the people in a num
ber of matters, among them child hy
giene and 'the medical inspection of
schools. She says the Sahara is brim
ming over with water compared to
some homes, where the radiator and
furnace use up all the moisture until
the doctor Is sought to remedy the
drought of the body.
ONE MILLION A YEAR
REMARKABLE RECORD MADE BY
ALIEN JEW.
Fortune of Enormous Proportions
Built Up From Most Humble Be
ginning Truly This Is Land
of Opportunity.
A Jewish boy came to this country
fifty years ago, with little In his purse,
but a boundless ambition in his heart.
He had determination, courage and
physical strength. He was honest and
trustworthy. He had been taught by
virtuous parents and he brought their
benediction with him when ho landed,
a etranger in a strange land.
Beginning as a humble errand boy
In a shop, ho' rose to a place behind
the counter and speedily to tho own
ership of a little establishment. Small
it was, but It was the day of opportu
nity and he made the most of his.
Fifty years have passed. The mon
ument to his zeal and integrity Is a
magnificent business block, one of the
largest of Its kind on the most fash
ionable thoroughfare of trade In the
greatest city of the land. Here the
little Jewish boy reached the culmina
tion of his aspirations.
His goal had been success. He
achieved it beyond his wildest dreams.
Wealth poured In. upon him In a cease
less and increasing stream. He de
voted much of It to the care and com
fort of an army of employes. He be
came fascinated with the love of art.
For a bit of porcelain $1,000 was a
common price, $10,000 for a rare vase,
and $250,000 for a beautiful painting.
Thus ho enjoyed the fruits of his
labor.
The surging crowd on the city's
royal highway on a weekday morning
saw with surprise every Iron shutter
on the great building of the merchant
prince drawn to the sidewalk. The
rich display of priceless goods In the
6how windows was hidden from sight
Upon the door the passing throng ea
gerly read the little wrlto placard:
Closed on account of the death of the
proprietor."
Fifty" million dollars In fifty years
a million a year! Shall we begrudge
it to the earner? Shall we denounce
him for his success 7 Shall we spurn
his money as "tainted?" Shall we
revile the Jew for his riches?
The Immigrant boy became a mer
chant prince, a lover of mankind, and
a generous dispenser of help lor the
needy. It Is not a tale, of one great
city In our favored land. It is an oft-
told tale in many American cities and
of many a noble-minded Jew.
This is a land of opportunity for all.
Let envy rest! Leslie's Weekly.
"Copper."
How about copper? What has hap
pened to It? Who does not remember
when it played a most indispensable
part In our Industry, yes but more
especially In our psychology?
How we used to worry about It as
we wended our ways to our offices In
the morning and how we grabbed the
newspapers to read about its antics as
we left our ofilces In the afternoon!
How the .furrows deepened In the
brows of our brokers and our finan
ciers as they eagerly watched the
tickers for a few ticks of hope.
Whether Amalgamated or fisslparated,
crystallized or amorphous, as copper
went so went the fortunes of the en
tire nation.
Tempora mutantur! How many
things are. now allowed to happen
without copper's being taken into the
slightest consideration! If copper has
any work to do, it is permitted to do
It without being subjected to articles
in the magazines or editorials In the
newspapers. It Is a fickle public! But
still, If we were copper, we should
hardly know whether to be joyful ov
aggrieved over this loss of prestige.
Life.
Bells of St Paul's.
The bells of St. Paul's Cathedral,
according to a writer In the British
Workman; are rung on Sundays,
holy days, and special occasions by
twelve members of the Society of the
College Youths. To become a mem
ber of this society very severe tests
have to be passed In campanology.
The duty of chiming the bells for the
week-day eervlco falls upon Mr.
George Harrison, who, by passing the
ropes through a series of pulleys and
bringing them together, is enabled to
chime six bells by himself. He
chimes the bells for the 8 o'clock
service, starting at 7:45 with two
bells for ten minutes, then ringing
one bell for five minutes. For the 10
nnd 4 o'clock services he chimes six
bells for ten minutes, then one bell
for five minutes. "The ringing of tho
twelve bells on Sunday morning and
afternoon," Bays Mr. Harrison, "Is
done by the members of the Society
of College Youths, which society has
been In existence since 1637. Thero
Is no doubt it is one of the finest
peals of bells to be found."
Black Bread the Best Diet.
Dr. Kunert of Berlin, one of tho high
est authorities on food analysis, con
siders that black rye broad should be,
the chief item of. nourishment of
healthy men and women, and main
tains that, in earlier times, when the
working classes did not eat meat to
any extent, but nourished themselves
on black bread, leguminous food and
groats, they were full of pith, and were
Btrong and healthy. Since meat, wheat
en bread and sugar became the sta
ples of dally fare their power of re
sisting dlseaBe has sunk. Even for
weak stomachs Dr. Kunert prefers
black bread.
MADE EFFECTIVE CAROM SHOT
Remarkable Feat of Marksmanship
That Is Credited to a Texan
of Kentucky Descent.
Shooting to kill is notoriously a flno
art both In Kentucky and In Texas. No
wonder, then, that tho best shot of
that sort on record should have been
made by a Texan of Kentucky descent.
We may call him Hank. HIb enemies,
however, had other names for him. It
wns, in fact, because a particular one
of these enemies, commonly known as
Torm, had been indiscreet in this mat
ter of nomenclature that Hank had
extra-oiled hie six-shooters and gone
out to take a walk in the cool of the
evening.
Torm wns warned, and with his bIx
Bhooters also extra-oiled, Intrenched
himself behind one of tho solid
urlck pillars of the courthouse porch.
It was past dusk and the swing
ing kerosene lamp In the porch
failed to Illuminate tho gloom of the
village street where Hank was with
his battery, while it made an easy
target of a human head poked from
behind the pillar, ae It must be if tho
owner were to do any effective Bhoot
lng on his own account. Torm wisely
stuck behind the pillar. Hank maneu
vered In vain. Wherever he stood, the
pillar was between him and every
bit of Torm. At last he gave vent to
his disgust in these words, distinctly
overheard by listeners well undor
covor across the road:
"I see I've got to try a carom shot
or I'll never get the coyote."
He carefully selected his position,
took aim at a certain spot on the brick
wall behind tho pillar, and pulled the
trigger. The bullet went true to the
mark, ricocheted, caught Torm In the
side of the head, and killed him where
he stood.
The story Is vouched for by a mem
ber of the Republican party In Texas.
New York Evening Post.
News of an Ancient King.
Following his recent return from
Egypt to England, Prof. Flinders Pe
trle, the eminent Egyptologist, lec
tured before tho British School of
Archeology for Egypt. He told of hav
ing exhumed the mummy of a woman
that offered evidence that labor unions
existed 5000 B. C. She was a mem
ber of a "union of cake sellers," and
the inscription that told of her occu
pation also declared that she was the
daughter of one Apollonlus.
The latest Egyptian excavations un
der Doctor Petrio have been rich In
discoveries, according to the London
correspondent of the New York Sun. A
king who had hitherto been unknown
to history Is now brought to the knowl
edge of the world. His name was Ha.
No portrait of him was found, but a
clue to his existence was given by
the carving of a jar that was found In
one of tho graves.
"It Is a scratchy drawing," says Pro
fessor Petrle, "and was evidently done
by a prehistoric mnn. There Is no
mention of this king since Mena, who
was the first king of Egypt; so ho
must have belonged to a date previous
to that, and was probably short-lived."

Ship Struck In a Hayfield.
The remains of an excursion steam
er may he seen In a hayfleld three
hundred feet above the lake of Loen.
in Norway. This oddly placed wreck
Is the sole relic of a terrible land
slide which took place In 1906, when
the whole side of a mountain sudden
ly slipped Into the lake, raising a
great wave more than 300 feet high,
which drowned everybody living along
the shores, more than 60 people per
ishing. The steamer, which was
moored on the lake at the time, was
carried on the crest of the wave over
a perpendicular cliff and deposited,
as already stated, more than 300 feet
above the normal level of the water,
more thau a quarter of a mile away
from Its anchorage. It Is a torn and
battered wreck, every bit of wood
work has been wrenched off, and the
twisted steel work testifies to the
force of the wave which cast It
ashore. Wide World Magazine.

one on such short notice, but when
the hour arrived a luxurious limou

Whea they returned they remarked

"Well, it is not often that one like
