NEARLY FOUR CENTURIES OLD
Pennsylvania School Teacher Has SI
bl Printed In Switzerland- In'
, the Year 1644.
D. W. Dcitrich, a school teacher
of Warwick township, Iancnstcr
county, Pa., has a German Bible
that was printed partly in 1544 and
partly in ICS I by Christofcl Frau
shaur, in Zurich, Switzerland. The
volume is fully illustrated and is in
excellent condition. What seems rc
markablo if the fact that it lias mar
ginal references. It measures 15
indies in length, 11 in width and is
six indies thick. The book is bound
in heavy calfskin, almost half an
inch thick. Tho back is heavily
ribbed and studded with copper riv
ets. The corners are protected by
heavy metal plates, and tho book
closes with a heavy metal clnsp, The
book is not paged, though the leaves
aro numbered. A marginal record
states that Christopher llurklioldcr
bought tho volumo in 1771 for 30
shillings (about $7.50). It came in
to the Dietrich family in 1835, when
the father of the present owner
bought it at a public tale for 05
Pear shaped balloons are the fash
Ion in Belgium. The point, is up
ward, the base of the balloon is
spherical. It is claimed that balloons
of this shape pierce the air verti
cally with far greater speed than
the ordinary spherical balloon. Con
sequently they are steadier. , Also
the upper pointed end prevents the
accumulation of moisture or snow on
the surface, which frequently weighs
a balloon down and destroys its pow
er to rise.
31. Adhemar do la Hault invented
the pear shaped balloon to act as
aerial torpedoes for dispersing hail
clouds in the vine growing districts
of Europe. But they have shown
themselves to be possessed of such
excellent qualities that they are be
ing utilized for other purposes.
REACHING OLD AGE.
Doubtless people by excess of toil
and work, neglect of rest or rules
of cleanliness do shorten the term
for which they might abide. How
ever, the man who lives by no rule
and has no ambition to reach the
century mark is more apt to ap
proach it than the one who adopts
"health-giving" fads, takes exercise
by rote and dodges microbes sedul
ously. The individual with the lat
ent potency of fourscore years or
more is scarce. Mortuary statistics
prove this. And the one passed by
when epidemics sweep away his asso
ciates, or some of tho countless acci
dents of ordinary existenco end their
careers, to bo sound and strong to
tho last, is a miracle not only of vi
tality, but of the special providence
generally known as good luck.
An invention of interest to mu
sicians is a pianoforte that renders
the diatonic scale in perfectly just
intonation in any desired key. It
difTers in outward appearance from
the ordinary piano only in having,
in addition to the usual pedals, a
bank of a single octave, somewhat
like organ pedals, which actuate u
bank of sliding bars, and these in
turn movo tho bridges on which
tho strings rest and adjust them sim
ultaneously to any key. This is
believed to bo tho first practical so

Alexander tho Great was so fond
of Homer's poems, tho Iliad and the
Odyssey, that ho carried with him on
his military campaigns an edition of
them jti which Aristotle had tuado
notes and corrections. After tho bat
tle of Arbela, a golden casket, stud
ded with costly jewels, was found
in tho tent of Darius, tho Persian
commander. When Alexander was
asked what should bo done with it
ho answered : "There is but one pro
duction in tho world worthy of so
rich a depository," and ho placed in
it his edition of Homer. That edition

Hog King of Fulton.
Fred Hayden, the hog king of
Fulton county, has a Duroc Jersey
sow that weighs 550 pounds and has
a litter of 13 pigs as fine as you ever
saw. Hayden claims to have the
largest hogs in the county and will
give any man $5 who has a larger
sow than the one mentioned above.
He is also an extensive breeder of
two other thoroughbreds: Berk
shires and I. 0. C.
From an I. 0. C. sow which he
has on his place he sold last year
$165 worth of pigs besides keeping
four for his own use- This is con
clusive evidence that thoroughbred
stock is far ahead of scrubs, atid it
is only a question of time when the
thinking farmer will breed a better
grade of swine.
