FLASHES OF WIT,
NOT AN ORIGINAL DISCOVERY
Writer Thought That He Had Found
Jones, But He Was Very Late to
Get In the Field.
Several years ago I wrota an essay
for the Atlantic Monthly on "The Hun
dred Worst Books." For a place in
the list I selected a book in my li
brary entitled Poems on Several Oc
casions, published in 1749, by one
Jones, a poet whose name was un
known to me till I perused his verse.
The pages were so fresh that I cher
ished the belief that I was the only
reader in a century and a half. I had
the pride of possession in Jones.
It was some time after that I came
across, in Walpole's letters, an allusion
to my esteemed poet. It seems that
Colley Clbber, when he thought he was
dying, wrote to the prime minister
"recommending the bearer, Mr. Henry
Jones, for the vacant laurel. Lord
ChesteTfleld will tell you more of him."
I was never more astonished in my
life than when I visualized the situa
tion, and saw my friend Jones "the
bearer" of a demand for the reversion
to the laureateship.
It seemed that Walpolo was equally
surprised, and when he next met Lord
Chesterfield the eager question was
Who is Jones, and why should he be
recommended for the position of poet
laureate? Lord Chesterfield answered,
"A better poet would not take the
post and a worse ought not to have
It." It appears that Jones was an
Irish bricklayer and had made it his
custom to work a certain number of
hours according to an undevlating
rule. He would lay a layer of brick
and then compose a line of poetry, arrS
so on till his day's task was over.
This accounts for the marvelous even
ness of his verse.
This was but a small discovery but
it gave a real pleasure, for should I
meet my Lord Chesterfield he and I
would at once have a common Interest.
We both had discovered Jones, and
quite independently. S. M. Crothers,
in the Atlantic.
CLING TO ANCIENT CUSTOMS
Among the Bedouins Marriage Is Cele
brated Much as It Was
A Bedouin bridegroom, on his wed
ding day, must make his bride a pres
ent of a silk handkerchief filled with
nuts, sweetmeats, little sugar cakes,
and marzipan, also five silver rings for
her fingers. An old pair of tellik
(Arab shoes) are purposely placed in
the room in which the lovers meet.
He seizes one shoe, and she the other,
and whichever of them can hit the
other first will be the ruler of the
household after. This is looked upon
as an unfailing sign, and there may
be something In It.
For seven days after the wedding
the bridegroom enjoys himself, wan
dering through the gardens of the
oasis, doing no work, always accom
panied by a group of his friends. But
on the seventh day he must keep a
sharp lookout, for on that day his
friends will try suddenly to play a1
trick on him. If ho escapes them, well
and good; then he can run to his
house and be safe. If not, they snatch
his clothes from him and beat him,
which seems a poor return for the
feasting and entertainment. But it is
custom, and that is the law of tho
Medes and Persians to these people,
who will not omit the smallest cere-l
mony handed down to them by their
Scientific Era of Art.

The daughter of a Western railroad
president was boating on Lake Michi
gan last season, when, In exchanging
seats there was an upset, and she was
in peril for a time. A young fellow
jumped from a nearby launch and res
cued her. Her father effusively
thanked tho rescuer and asked him i
how much cash he might have tho
privilege of bestowing upon aueh a .
The young fellow indignantly re-'
fused to consider the value of his serv

to name some other reward he finally

young life. He would take an annual

Monument to a Woman.
There has just been erected at
Blevres, France, a monument com
memorative of the patriotic spirit and
services of Mile. Dodu, a telegraph op
erator, who. after receiving a modeet
recompense following the war of 1870,
obtained some years later the military
medal and afterward the cross of the
Legion of Honor. Now 44 years hav
ing elapsed since the war, It Is deuled
that she was entitled to these honors.
One of the alleged services was that to
save capture by the Germans she hid
the Morse telegraphic apparatus be
tween the two mattresses of a bed
ridden neighbor, but it Is denied that
she was ever taken before a council of
war and condemned by a German tri
bunal. It Is even said that the whole
dramatic story was invented by M.
Villemessant, a journalist, on the bor
der of Lake Engheln, to which place
the young telegraphist had been sent
after the war. But Mile. Juliette Dodu,
thanks to the journalist, had bud-

Old Scotch Church of Kelwlnlng.
One hundred years ago the remark
able steeple of Kelwlnlng church, In
Scotland, collapsed and fell to the
ground, fortunately without Injuring
any person. For several centuries the
Kelwlnlng church, or abbey, bad been
regarded as one of the architectural
gems of Scotland and its steeple was
remarkable both for Its height and its
artistic design. The church dated
back to about tho middle of the
twelfth century. In 1660 the edifice
suffered considerable damage at the
hands of zealous reformers, who, tired
by the sermons of John Knox, plun
dered and laid In ruins many of the
abbeys and monasteries throughout
Scotland. These acts of van'dallsm
formed a part of their campaign to
supplant Roman. Catholicism by
Protestantism, which they finally suc
ceeded In bringing about through an
act of parliament passed in 1567.
Tuberculosis In Egypt.
Modern research has established the
fact that tuberculosis, both of lungs
and bones, was common in ancient
Egypt more than 3,000 years ago.
Not even in diseases, apparently, Is
there any new thing under the eun.
There are grounds for believing that
the ancient Pharaohs suffered from
malaria, and had appendicitis now and
then, and their instruments prove that
most ailments of the eye known to
the oculists of today devastated the
banks of the Nile twenty centuries be
fore the birth of Christ.
Where the modern world may claim
novelty is in the successful treatment
of disorders which our ancestors were
