ZERO AN ANCIENT TERM.
It 'Was In Use In Babylon Thirty-six
The term zero, which Is used to desig
nate a cipher and in meteorology the
entire absence of heat in the atmos
phere, was, according to a mathematic
al historian, Moritz Cantor, used by the
Babylonians about the year 1700 B. C.
This, however, is merely a supposition.
It has not been definitely established
that zero was in use any earlier than
400 A. D. About this time it was used
in India, and several centuries later the
Arabs began to employ it. Through
the Arabs its use became known to Eu
ropeans during the twelfth century. It
was not generally adopted in Europe
until several centuries later, notwith
standing its great advantages. For a
considerabl, time there were two par
ties among the European educators.
One party, known as the algorists, fa
vored the adoption of the Hindoo sys
tem of notation (falsely called Arabic),
with its position values, while the other,
known as the abacists, favored the Ro
man notation, without zero or position
The general adoption of the Hindoo
system was greatly facilitated by the
facts that it was explained in most of
the calendars for more than a century,
beginning with 1300, and that the me
diaeval universities frequently offered
courses devoted to the use of this nota
An American Waterloo.
Wellington at Waterloo and Meade
at Gettysburg each held the highlands
against his antagonist. Wellington on
Mont Saint Jean and Meade on Ceme
tery Ridge had the birdseye view of
the forces of attack. The English bat
teries on the plateau and the Union
batteries on Cemetery Heights com
manded alike the intervening undula
tions across which the charging col
umns must advance. Behind Mont
Saint Jean, to conceal Wellington's
movements from Napoleon's eyes, were
the woodlands of Soignes. Behind
Cemetery Ridge, to conceal*eade's
movements from the field glasses of
Lee, was a sharp declivity, a protecting
and helpful depression. As the French
under Napoleon at Waterloo, so the
Confederates under Lee at Gettysburg
held the weaker position. In both cases
the assailants sought to expel their op
ponents from the stronger lines. I
I might add another resemblance In the
results which followed. Waterloo de
creed the destiny of France, of Eng
land, of Europe. Gettysburg, not so di
rectly or immediately, but practically,
decided the fate of the Confederacy.

Ladies Who Wore Knives.
In early English days knives were
worn by Englishwomen in imitation of
the anelace, a dagger carried at the
girdle. Chaucer speaks of them in the
prologue to his "Canterbury Tales:"
Hir knives were y-chaped not with brass,
But all with silver wrought, full clean and
In Ross church, Herefordshire, is a
monument to a lady of the Ruddle fam
ily, temp. Henry VIII., who wears a
purse and a knife. Brand tells us that
knives were formerly part of the ac
couterments of a bride. In. a play,
temp. "Edward III.," occurs the pas
Here by my side do hang my wedding
In the "Archmeologia" Mr. Douce, the
antiquary, wrote a paper on this prac
ice of wearing knives by European
ladies in the sixteenth centu~ry, and an
engraving shows a specimen of a case
of these wedding knives, dated 1610,
which. are described as having amber
handles and cases of purple velvet em
broidered with gold.
Some Pygmy Animals.
A species of dwarf elephant used to
live on the island of Malta and in vari
ous parts of Italy. Judging from the
bones which remain, these anmals,
about the size of a large sheep, were
somewhat numerous. A dwarf elephant
Is a rarity now and no longer forms a
distinct species, but is considered rath
er a freak.
A very beautiful species of pygmy
deer is found on the Sunda Islands.
These little creatures are not much lar
ger than a cat, but have all the 'points
of a "well bred" deer.
Among horses Shetland ponies are
the pygmies. The ordinary musk of
central Africa is a pygmy, or dwarf, of
only about twenty inches in height at
the shoulder and three feet in length.

A startling incipent is narrated by
John Oliver of Philadelphia, as follows:
"I was in an awful condition. My skin
was almost yellow, eyes sunken, tongue
coated, pain continual in back and
sides, no appetite, growing weaker day
y day. Three physicians had given

Electrtc Bitters; to my great joy, the
first bottle made a decided improve

weeks, and am now a well man. I know
they robbed the grave of another vic

JefEerson and the Patent Ofnee.
The first patron of our patent system
was Thomas Jefferson, who during
three years gave his personal attention
to every application for a patent. He
used to call the secretary of war and
the attorney general to examine and
scrutinize with him, and they did it so
thoroughly that in one year-the first
they granted only three patents. The
very first patent of all was given to
Samuel Hopkins in 1790 for pearl ash
es. Mr. Jefferson held that the patent
system was not one for creating rev
enue, but for encouraging a production
of that which is to be of benefit to the
whole people. In the first twelve years
a single clerk In the state department
and a few pigeonholes were all that
the business of the office required.
Then a Dr. Thornton took charge of it
and devoted himself to it as to a hobby.
