The Romans. following the Greek
nineralogists, divided gems into males
tnd females according to the depth or
!ghtness of their color. These terms
tre thus alludd to by Theophrastus:
'Both these (beryl. carbuncle, omphax,
,rystal and amethyst) and the sard are
ound on breaking open certain rocks,
)resenting certain differences, but
igreeing in name with each other.
For of the sard the transparent and
lood red sort is called the female,
bile the less transparent and darker
aind Is termed the male, and the cya
ius also is named one sort the male
Lnd the other the female, bhut the
nale is the deeper in color of the two."

Fish That Canx cOt Swvim.
More than one species of fish is met
with which cannot swim, the most sin
gular of which perhaps Is the raaltha, ,
a Brazilian fish, whose organs of loco
motion only enable it to crawl or walk .
or hop, after the manner of a toad, to
which auimal this tlsh to some extent
bears a resemblance. and It is provided T
with a iong upturned snout. The an- s
terior (pectoil) i.ns of the malt-a. 0
which are cytite snall, are not capable
of acting on the w. ter. but can .only
move backward and forward. Both
these and the ventral and anal fins a
very different from the similar fins I
other iishes and could c serve or
swimming at all.
Other emnples of nco* swimming
fishes include the sea horse. anotherr
most peculiarly shaped inhabitant of
the sea, which resenibies the knight in
a set of chessmen, and the starfish.
American robins biuild plaster and
dry grass nests in the crotches of trees,
while the little English bird of the t
same name, ouly about half as big as r
its cousin in America, makes a soft I
moss nest on the ground. Its breast is
a yellow, red or scarlet, much brighter
than the American bird, and it sings
even more sweetly, but it is of sm
value as an insect destroyer. Th e
American robin, on the other hand,
has a much duller. quieter coat, a more I
ex.tended vocabulary, sounding many r
distinct notes of warning, fear, joy,
etc.. but not in so sweet a song, and is C

"SiZk" That I Rea!ly Tin. f
Of course British critics say that the e
practice of adultc'rating silk with tin j
originated in Germany. At any rate. it
is common enough now.
All silk is mixed with more or less
foreign matter to giveg weight and
stability. Vegetable substances were
formerly used for the purpose. In dye
ir~g silk the necessary boinng reduces t
its weight about one-fourth, taking out
the natural gummy substances. The
wv eight is sometimes restored with tan
nic acid. Tin is more common-most of
all in cheap black slks.
Veryv soft "we sh" silks are apt to be
pure. Burn a scrap, and nothing re
main:s but ash. * tin weighted scrap I

The idea that Mohammedanism is
"played out" would be a dangerous one
for statesmen to bank upon. It isn't.
Mohammed began his career as a
prophet more than 000 years later than
the beginning of the Christian era. At
present he has 170,000.000 diesiples,
more than one-third as many as there
are Christians'in the world.
Nine hundred years ago uhere were
in India no Mohammedans. Now there
are 50,000,000. and they are increasing
in number constantly. They are by all
odds the most energetic subjects in
