Historic Roumanian City.
Craiova, In Roumania, was the Cas
tra Nova of the Romans daring their
occupation of Daeia. and in the middle
ages' the place played an important
cole. It was here that the Wallachlan
prince Mlrcea the Old defeated the
Turkish sultan Bayezld I. In 1397. Two
mndred years later the most famous
of Wallachia's chieftains, Michael the
Brave, held sway here as "ban," or
governor, afterward becoming prince
not only of Wallachla, but of Moldavia
and Transylvania as well, thus for a
brief period uniting under one ruler
tiie whole Roumanian people.
The leu, which is the standard of
value in Roumania, was first coined
in Craiova. It derives its name from
the figure of a lion stamped on the
early coins. Its value is equal to that
of the French franc (19 cents and a
Craiova was jr centuries the capi
tal of Little Wallachla, that division
of the country lying between the Alt
(Aluta) river and the Hungarian and
Serbian boundaries to the west.Bul

do.- A Laubu and a clean person no one
need have much fear of Infection. A
writer in the New York Medical Rec
ord says: "Soap is now recognized to
be antiseptic and to be efficacious must
produce a lather. Bacteria rubbed into
soap or dropped on its surface are in
capable of multiplication. The typhoid
bacillus is very sensitive to soap, being
killed by a 5 per cent solution in a
short time. More than half the total
number will die in one minute The
thorough use of a pure potash soap is
not only a mechanical method of cleans
ing, but is an active factor in cutting
down germ life."
The Arabic Language.
Though the Arabs number less than
the population of London, their lan
guage is one of the most widely spoken
and influential in the world, for it is
the language of the Koran. Seventy
millions of people in Asia and north
Africa speak some form of Arabic as
their vernacular, and quite as many
more know something of the language
from the Koran, which, in the original,
la a textbook in the day schools of the
Mohammedans from Turkey to Afghan
istan and New Guinea. Nor is Arabic
unworthy of this extensive use. Renan,
alter expressing his surprise that such
a language should spring from the des
ert regions of Arabia and reach perfec
tion in nomadic camps, declares that it
surpasses all its sister Semitic lan
guages in richness of vocabulary, deli
cacy of expression and the logic of
its grammatical construction.London

A Ones Legal Fiction.

day, in l^i^o^indMdualB,
personally known to no one and enjoy
ing An"extensive reputoition'among law
yers/ceased 'to exist in England. These
persons were John Doe and Richard
Roe, and notwo persons were more fre
quently referred to in legal documents.
In every process of ejectment Instead
of the real parties to the suit being
named, John Doe, plaintiff, sued Rich
ard Roe, defendant Their names were
also inserted in criminal proceedings.
This fiction was introduced into Eng
lish legal practice in the time of Ed
ward III., in consequence, itwas said,
of a provision in Magna Charts which
required' the production of witnesses
before every criminal trial, and hence
forth John Doe and Richard Roe were
inserted as the names of the alleged
witness, a custom which was carried
across the Atlantic to this country.
A Well Hated Landlord.
The most hated landlord in Ireland
for the last 100 years, a miser known
as "the parsimonious peer," was Hu
bert George de Burgh Canning, mar
quis of Clanricarde. He was unmar
ried, and with his death the marquis
ate became extinct His Irish estate
extended from Athenry, in Galway, to
Woodford, twenty miles southeast, and
it was said that anywhere along this
route could be obtained a story of trag
edy in the land war. Time and again
the aid of the forces of the crown in
evicting tenants had been refused. He
was never seen in a vehicle. He took
dally waits to Regent's park. There,
on a public seat, not one of the chairs,
for which he would have been charged
a small fee, would sit this owner of
60,000 acres watching the squirrels. He
was a noted collector of china and pic
tures, of which he was a wise buyer.
According to Degree.
Horse breeding is an occupation
which requires much learning, and a
certain English farmer has a great rep
utation for his skill.
A neighbor of his who sought some
advice on the cheap, asked the horse
breeder's son one day:
"I say, Tommy, when one of your fa
ther's horses is ill what does he do?"
"Do you mean just slightly ill or real
bad?" was the lad's cautious counter
"Oh, seriously ill."
"Well," said the boy, "if a horse is
only just a little ill, dad gives it some
medicine, but if it is seriously ill he'
Sacrificed Their Hats.
Many years ago the master butchers
of Washington market, in New York
city, used to kick their bats about the
market at the close of business on Sat
urday night Under the custom in the
market it was considered a slighting of
the profession for any butcher not to
appear behind his counter with a high
hat and it was thought bad taste if the
meat seller at the end of a prosperous
week failed to destroy the hat The
apprentice butchers couldn't afford silk
headgear and so used to gather up the
broken hats and repair them for their
