A Salad of Information and Fun
for Thoto Who May Liko It
Tho Nanson expedition hns boen
fruitful of incidents of unusual in
torost Ouo of tho most striking
perhaps is that told by a membor of
tho party rocontly about tho effect
that llioir isolation hadiUpon thorn
So tired did thoy becouio of seoiug
the same faces aud hearing tho sauio
voices day after day iu tho courso of
tho slow drift northward that in tho
ond a feeling of irritation was pro
duced At times this irritability
becamo almost iuupportablo Find
ing it almost impossible to nnduro
the sight of one another thoy would
sot off oh long walks over the ice
each mau by himself It was au
astounding thliiK ouo man said to
soo his comrades striding away over
tho ico from the ship each in a
different direction and carefully
avoiding his fellows Perpetual
darkness and constant daylight were
equally oppressive aud for four
teen months not a single living
thing was peon not ovon a tea bird
or a Polar bear What all that
must mean those ouly who havo ex
perienced it can know It recalls
tho awful solitude of Coleridges
Ancient Mariner So lonely twas
that God Himself scarce seemed
there to bo
Superstition in India
A curious example of uativo super
stition cropped up during tho trial
of a case in tun Calcutta High Court
A witness was asked why ho had left
Fatna on a cortain day in tho week
His answer was that was one of
tho days in tho week on which it
was lucky to travel wostward On
being prosaod he stated that Tues
days Thursdays and Saturdays wore
tho days on which his astrologer or
family priest permitted him to tra
vel westward and Monday Wed
nesdays aud Prida eastwards
Sunday was tho day ou which tra
velling south was preferred When
matters of emergency were concern
ed this nilo was permitted to bo
broken but sundry precautious had
to bo taken ubeu this was done
A Dogs Capacious Mnw
A dog who has oaten up a farm
and a set of buildings has been
found iu Eastern Maiue This dog
killed a neighbors sheep The
noighbor offered to call it square if
the dog was killed Tho dogs mas
tor refuged to agroo to this aud a
lawsuit caino next To pay tho
costs and damages assessed by tho
Court tho owuor of tho dog had to
mortgage his farm for 100 Tho
mortgage had a bigger appetite than
the dog and soou his farm was gono
and the owner had to move away
The dog is dead
An Archaeological Discovery
A discovory of the greatest inter
est to arahiuologists has been made
in tho neighborhood of Cardiff
Lord Bute who has been staying at
Cardiff Castle for some time has
been pursuing antiquarian research
es Iart of the castle grounds havo
beon dug up bringing to light the
foundation of an old priory called
White Friars known to havo ox
isted somo centuries ago Tho
foundations of the church are per
fect Further oxoavations are being
mado
Millaia Last Picture
A trading company has offered
3500 for au unfinished picture of
Millais ouo that was on tho easel
at thotimo of his death Tho pieturo
would no doubt be of immenso
value for advertising purposes but
it is understood that Sir John Mil
lain family havo declined to solliit
This is a big price for an unfinished
painting and it is doubtful whether
it would have fetched half as much
in an auction room unless it woro
wanted for advertising purposes
