The Used a File In Trepanning Op
erations In Hipocrates' Time.
There is no douj, that smiie rough
form of surgery iiiust have existed
from very ancient times, but it is
strange to find that so complex and
delicate au operation as trepanning is
one of the oldest.
So far as actual records go, Hippo
crates gives us the earliest account,
lie wrote treatises on fractures, dislo
cations and wounds of the head, in
which he described the method of pro
cedure to le followed in the ense of a
fractured skull. His direction was to
cut away a piece of bone so that the
pressure on the brain might be re
lieved. There are also records about this
time and later of a tile being used for
this purpose, which at a time when
anaesthetics were undreamed of must
have been, to say the least, painful.
According to Dr. T. Rice Holmes, the
operation of removing pieces of bone
was performed long before historic
times. The effects on the skull are
easily seen after death and nre visible
so long as the bones are preserved.
From inspection of certain skulls of
the later stone age in ancient Iiritain
Dr. Holmes has come to the conclusion
that some of these had undergone the
operatiou, which must have been per
formed with a stone implement. Lon
WATER OF l HE WORLD.
What Will We Do When the Population
Outgrows the Rainfall?
Dr. MeUee, au American scientist,
"who follows the form of investigation
that uses weighing scales for testi
monyscales that cannot lie," has
found that the average individual uses
directly or Indirectly about 4,400 tons
of water every year. He drinks a ton.
The vegetables he consumes require
about 400 tous for their growth, and
his annual meat supply of 200 pounds
uses up no less than 4,000 tons of
Using this figure as a basis. Dr. Mc
Gee shows that when the population
of the United States has reached 1.017,
000,000, which he thinks will occur
about A. D. 2210, every drop of t)io
annual rainfall will be required to
maintain the food supply, and no fur
ther Increase of Inhabitants will be
The present inhabitants of the entire
world, estimated at almtit 1,500,000,000,
can be Increased to 20,000,000,000 If
the total annual rainfall of earth re
mains as it Is today that Is, thirteen
times the present population will
crowd the earth to its limit.
Dr. MeGee's estimates, however,
leave quite out of nccount the ques
tion of tapping the oceans, which Is
at least a possibility. Loudon Magazine.

"You think you would make a good
burglar, do you never get caught and
all that? I'd like to see you try tu A
silk stocking like you would soon be
taken. You wouldn't have the coolnesb
to save yourself.".
"I wouldn't mind trying It Just once."
"I'll give you an Inducement. I'll bet
you a hundred you won't go Into the
bouse of some emineutly respectable
family whom you don't know, mind
you and rob them of some article."
"That's Just the kind of a job I'd like
to try. The danger In it would make it
"And if you got caught it would give
you au excellent opportunity to snow
your presence of mind."
"So it would. 1 think I'll go you."
"Here's my check. We'll put the
stakes In Hawkins" hands."
This dialogue occurred between Dick
Thurston and Ned Chambertin at a
club, and the next night Charnberhn in
evening dress sallied forth to burglar
ize a gentleman's dwelling. He walked
slowly up u ii aristocratic avenue, and.
selecting a house midway between two
street lamps and standing well buck in
shadow, he entered the yard and. tak
ing the parts of a burglar's jimmy from
dis side pocket, began to screw them
together in order to secure the length
of handle required for leverage. Then,
mounting a side porcc, he pried up a
window and entered u room.
He stood listening tor awhile, but,
bearing no sound, began to explore. A
faint light Iroin without barely en
abled him to move without stumbling
against anything, and he got bis band
ou a large uncovered table. Suspect
ing he was in a drawing room, he was
hunting for the sideboard, when there
was a sudden burst of light. A young
lady stood at the door of the room,
with ber finger on an electric button.
She appeared astonished, not at find
ing some one In the room, but some
one in evening costume.
Chamberliu braced himself for the
encounter. It was his right, under the
provisions of the bet. to tell any story
be pleased, and he decided to tell the
"I beg pardon for the trespass." he
said, "but 1 nm sure that is. if you nre
a woman of the world 1 shall bave
your sympathy afier you bave beard
the reason for my being here. Last
night at the club 1 bet a friend
a hundred dollars that 1 would bur
glarize a dwelling, bringing bira some
stolen article to prove the robbery.
If you will permit me to take away a
spoon 1 will be happy to donate my
winnings to any charity you may
The girl by this time had regained
her composure, for Chamberlin spoke
softly and did not seem one to be
afraid of. Nevertheless she consider
ed him to be one of those villains who
dress themselves like gentlemen for
the purpose of aiding tbem to hood
wink whoever they may meet. She
pretended to believe his story and. go
Ing to a sideboard, opened a drawer and
took out a silver spoon with the family
Initial letter ou it This she tossed
on the dining table and stood waiting
for him to withdraw. He saw by the
pallor on her face and other signs
that she was badly frightened, and be
felt a pang at having caused ber an
noyance. So Instead of going at once
be stopped to reassure her. Taking a
card from his pocket and a pencil,
be asked her to what institution he
should send a donation. She was not
especially interested In any and for a
moment could not think of any. While
she was trying to do so an elderly
gentleman, with a gray mustache, step
ped into the room.
The girl turned paler still. If thnt
were possible, fearing that the story
would not go down with the new
comer and there would be trouble.
"Uncle." she said, "this gentleman
bas made a bet that be would rob this
"Indeed!" said the uncle quietly.
"Yes. at the club. He Is to win
$100 and give it to auy charity 1 may
"A hundred dollars! That's no price
for a gentleman burglar to pay for the
privilege of robbing a house. He
might have got away with $5,000 or
$0,000 worth of property. Couldn't
you make It $1,000. sir?"
Chamberlin was very rich, but rich
men don't like to part with their mon
ey any better than poor men. He said
he might double the amount of bis
winnings. The gentleman stepped to
a telephone In the ball and called for
a police station.
Chamberlin was cornered. , He called
out that be would make bis donation
"I have called the police." said the
gentleman; "It will now cost $2,000."
"Done!" cried Chamberlin, fearing
that before he could assent the price
of bis experiment would go op another
"All right," remarked the gentleman.
"Never mind the police. Have you a
blank check In yonr pocket, sir? If
so please make the amount payable to
St. Luke'R hospital."
Chamberlin, who carried a check
book always with hlra. wrote n check
for $2,000 and handed it to the gen
tleman. who took it and said:
"Gwendolln. this Is Mr. Chamberlin.
I met him once at his club, but he bas
forgotten me. He can afford to pay

' Italy's Lucky tramps.
Th State Shelters Them and Food and
DnnK Come Easy.
Assuredly the tramp in Italy is a
man to be envied! Save for a coat to
his back and shoes to his feet there
are few things which he need worry
atiout as he passes from village to vil
lage in that country of blue skies and
sunshine. Food he can tind in the
vineyards and on the fig trees, drink is
obtainable almost for nothing, so plen
tiful is wine, and shelter is provided
for him gratis by a benevolent gov
ernment. "I was ofien struck during my re
cent Journey in northern Italy by the
delightful public dormitories which are
erected by the roadsides throughout
the country, especially in the valleys
leading from the Mediterranean coast
to the hill towns of Liguria.
I visited a donnitorio publico on the
highway near Cnmporosso. In the Ner
via valley, and surely no wayfarer
could desire n more charming resting
place. The authorities have placed It
under the shade of the olive trees, so
that, however hot the sun may be,
the footsore traveler can obtain his
much needed siesta in a perfectly cool
place. It looked o attractive, stand
ing there in the shade, that 1 myself
was almost tempted to escape from the
sunshine and seek refuge beneath its
hospitable roof." Wide World Magazine.
Their Origin and the Conditions That
Made Them a Necessity.
In nmieiit times each district in the
highlands had its "todhunter," whoe
duty it was to see carefully to it that
the then nourishing firm of fox, otter
and company did not do a too prosper
ous business in lamb and poultry.
Sometimes these todhuntcrs were of
"the laird's men," sometimes they were
supported by the whole community of
small farmers and grazers, but always
they were local dignitaries. There was
honor and considerable profit in their
office, mid in time it came to be more
or less hereditary. Their duty was
simple. They waged a war of extermi
nation against the vermin, which, how
ever, was n very different matter from
the good old English sport of fox. hunt
ing. In the rough country horse and
hound would have been worse than
useless, and Heynard made his deu In
such rocky ground that he could not be
dug out. The solo solution was a dog
small enongh to follow the fox or otter
or badger or wild cat into his lair,
I strong enough to bring him out dead or
alive and game enough to do both. A
dog developed from this necessity, and
that dog was the ancestor of the pres
ent day Scottish terrier. William
Uaynes iu Outing.
Water at Meals.
There Is a very popular fallacy
abroad namely, that a person should
never drink water with his meals.
There is one and only one danger in
this. That is the temptation to wash
down half masticated food with water.
There is one distinct advantnge in the
digestion of food when water is taken
with the meals. As food is swallowed
it goes to the stomach In a lump about
the consistency of a bread dressing.
Ono can see that it requires a great
length of time for the digestive juices
to penetrate the mass and come in
contact with the food particles. If the
food Is diluted wilh water the diges
tive juices can easily have access to It.
! In this and in other ways water keeps
the digestive tract clean. If people
drank enough water there would be no
operations for appendicitis. Kausas
Why Animals Fear Man.
The universal antipathy of animated
nature for man can scarcely Iks ex

something in his attitude of mind that
