GRIEF AND GREED.
Sorely Afflicted, Yet He Kept an Eye
on the Main Point.
The following mno:nunication was
eentlv addressed by a grief stric-1en
rman husband to the secretary of a
e insurance company in Germany:
"Sir-Deeply al"lieted, I take up my
pen to inform you that my dear wife,
Anne Maria, nee I,-, insured in your
company for the sum of $750. has sud
denly died, leaving me a victim to the
deepest despair. This grievous blow
fell on me this morning at 7. Kindly
endeavor to let me have ty insuraice
\rmoney as promptly as possible. The
1policy bears the number -, as you
will find by reference to your books.
"I may say very seriou'ly and in all
sincerity that she was a faithful wife
a'd an admirable mother. In order
that all formalities may be settled
'vith promptitude I inclose herewith
a certificate officially recording her
"Her illness was but a short one.
Nevertheless she suffered intensely,
which naturally renders my grief all
the more poignant. I have no doubt
that you will afford me partial conso
lation by sending on the insurance
money as promptly as possible.
"In return I hereby formally prom
ise to have my second wife insured in
your company for $1,500, double the
sum for which my defunct darling

viction that you will afford me conso
lation sustains me during this terrible
ordeal. In the hope that we shall
soon draw our insurance money, my
children join me in." etc.-Exchange.

the heavy underjaw?"
"That is the only daughter of old

"What's 6e explanation?"
"Why, it's old De Mfilyun's clever
idea. He thinks his Jane wil be per

With Chronicles as its authority, the
Plumbers' Trade Journal says that the
bathroom was an invention of King
Solomon, who put it in use a thousand
years before the Christian era. It was
sinful to enter the sanctuary unless
the body was perfectly clean, and for
the accommodation of priests a bath
tub was erected at the entrance to the
temple. It was said of Solomon, "He
made a molten sea of ten cubits from
brim to brim round in compass and
five cubits the height thereof, and .a
line of thirty cubits did compass It
roundabout." According to the meas
urements, the Solomonian tub was for
ty-five feet In circumference at the top
and six and one-half feet deep. It
rested on carved figures of oxen and
as of solid brass cast In one piece,
decorated with a floral design. Con
nected with it there were ten small
inks, which were used for washing
Men Who Cheat Themselves.
I have known employees actually to
work harder in scheming. shirking,
trying to keep from working hard in
the performance of their duties, says
Orison Swett Marden in Success Mag
azine. than they .would have worked
if they had tried to do their best and
had -given the largest, the most liberal
service possible to their employers.
The hardest work In the world is that
which is grudgingly done. The youth
who is always haggling over the ques
tion of how many dollars and cents he
will sell his services for little realizes
how he is cheating himself by not look
ing at the larger salary he can pay
himself in increasing his skill, in ex
panding his experience and in making
himself a better, stronger, more useful
