The first notice of india rubber dates
back 500 years, when Iicrrera. a Span

of Columbus, saw that "the natives of
Haiti played with balls made of the

In a record published in Madrid, 1615,
we are told: 'There is a tree which the
Indians call ulequahuiti. very high,
with round, ashy gray leaves. It yields
a milky substance, thick and gummy,
in great abundance. which is collected
and allowed to settle in ealabashes and
afterward softened in hot water or
smeared over the body and rubbed off
when suffciently dry."
Even at that early date Spaniards
used the juice of the ule tree to water
proof their cloaks.
The first accurate account of these
gum elastic or caoutchoue trees was
furnished by L.a Condam ine, who was

THE WATER LOTUS.
A Plant That Has the Power of Pn
rifying Standing Water.
There is a plant growing in the
southern waters of the United States
which possesses the singular proper
ty of being able to render the most im
pure standing water perfectly healthy.
The people of Louisiana and Missis
sippi call it the water lotus.
It consists of leaves about the size of
the head of a pin and roots so fine as
to escape notice save under a micro
scopic inspection. Where it grows at
all, it covers the water and to the cas
ual observer looks like a coating of
green scum. The flowers and seeds
are microscopic. so that its appearance
in any given locality is not readily ac
counted for, but wherever it does ap
pear the water beneath is always fit
So marked is this property that fam
ilies using the water from bayous
where the lotus is abundant are known
to have better general health than
those taking their drinking water from
places where the lotus is not found. It
is often transplanted into ponds, bay
ous and lakes, spreads with wonder
ful rapidity and never fails to do its
work well.- St. Louis Globe-Democrat.
HOMES OF HEALING.
The History of Hospitals Begins
With the First Century.
The temple at Epidaurus was found
ed by Antoninus Pius at the end of the
first century A. D. in honor of Escu
lapius, Hlomer's blameless physician.
Beyond the sacred inclosure was a
building for the reception of the sick
and dying, which Strabo describes as
a place renowned for the cure of all
diseases, always full of invalids and
containing votive tablets descriptive of
About 380 A. D. a hospital was found
ed by Valens and richly endowed by
him at Crcsarea, and another at Rome
by Fabiola, a wealthy Roman widow,
for the reception of the sick poor.
Basil is said by Gregory, the pres
byter, to have built a large hospital
for lepers with money collected for the
purpose. The Hotel Dieu in Pai-s,
founded in the seventh century, and
two founded in 1080 by Lanfrane,
archbishop of Canterbury. were both
connected with monastic establish
ments. Bartholomew's, 1547, and St
Thomas', 1553, are the oldest hospitals
in London and were both originally re
Omiens In Tea.
When the tea is made and the lid of
the teapot is forgotten for a minute or
two it is a sure sign that sonme one will
drop in for the meal. Two spoons put
by chance into the saucer of a maid
or a bachelor denote that he or she
will be married within a year. Putting
cream into your tea befo're you sweet
en it will bring you love troubles. A
tea stalk floating in a girl's teacup is a
"beau." She should stir her tea brisk
ly and then hold the spoon upright in
the center.. If the "beau" be attracted
toward the spoon and cling to it a gen
tleman .visitor may be expected some
time that evening- If, however, the
"beau" goes to the side of the cup thd
visitor will not come that day.
Messages of War.
Among the natives of Australia
notched and carv-ed sticks are used for
messages. For instance, a piece of
wood carried from one village to an
other with straight and curved lines
cut upon it is a message of war and
means: "There is a fight on hand.
Fetch your spears and boomerangs."
The North American Indians utilized
wampum belts from time immemorial
for like purposes. The arrangement of
the different colored beads conveyed
the signification desired.
"Look here, sir! You have been call
ing on my daughter every night for the
past six months!''
"But I can't afford to get married,
sir, and if I call on any other girl I'm
afraid I might fall in love with her."

but It 'W.as a Dead Heat.
Herrmann Klein in a book on music
and musicians tells this story: "Once
I remember our party of four was join
ed by Tamagno when the celebrated
Italian tenor w.'as playin;g 'Otello' at
the Lyceum. We all had supper to
gether after the performance and were
in the jolliest of moods. Tamiagno had a
slight cold on the chest. but protested
that it made no difference whatever in
the singing quality of his head tones.
Upon this Lassalle offered to wager
that he could sing higher with his
falsetto than Tamagno with his 'voce
di petto.' The challenge was accepted,
and forthwith the two began a vocal
duct the like of which I am certain I
shall never hear again. Out canie Ta
magno's A's and B Bats, as quickly re

Then the Italian went 'one better.' and
the Frenchman, in order. as he said,
to help himself up the scale, mounted
his chair and emitted the B natural,
whereupon Tamagno also stood upon
his chair and brought out not only a
high C, but a ringing D flat. Lassalle
was now for mounting the table, but.
this being 'ruled out' as an unfair ad
vantage over a l'ss athletic opponent.
he proceeded to get the necessary notes
from the eminence of his chair amid
terrific applause froni the rest of the
company. Tamagno now made a bold
dash for a D natural. but did not quite
succeed, and as Lassalle fared no bet

many stories to show that the men of
his command always treated captured
Union soldiers with as much considera
tion and kindness as was possible un
der the circumstances. He said that
his orders on this point were very
strict, and he never knew any of his
men to disobey. As he went on to ex
plain how proud he was of the record
of his men on this point a listener em
ployed in one of the departments at
Washington interrupted him.
"Undoubtedly your orders were strict,
general." he said, "but I happen to
know that they were evaded. For ex
ample. in east Tennessee you ordered
your men to respect the belongings of
prisoners, and this is the way some of
them did it: I wore a good pair of army
shoes, nearly new. One day a good
natured fellow in gray with no shoes
to speak of walked along our line look
ing intently at the shoes of the cap
tured Unionists. He put his foot by
the side of mine and, remarking that I
was just his size, added: 'Old Pete
[Longstreet] says he will have every
man shot who steals anything from a
prisoner. To save my life, wont you
trade shoes with me? For I must have
them shoes.' Of course I traded, as
did other prisoners."
At this Longstreet smiled, but insist'

the feat recently achieved by one of
To run an ordinary root race is easy
enough, but to run at full speed for
several hundred yards holding in one
hand a spoon on which rests an egg
and to reach the goal without dropping
the egg is a feat which must be prac
ticed carefully a long time before it
can be performed successfully, and as
a result there are not many who can
be sure of accomplishing it whenever
they try. Great, therefore, was the
surprise when an Italian officer mount
ed on horseback performed this diffi
cult feat. Moreover, he selected a
course in which there were two or
three high fences, and these he cleared
at full gallop without losing the egg.

The domination of imagination over
the normal exercise of the faculties is
no new idea. Samuel Rogers suffered
froin a violent cold from the effects of
what lie believed to be an open win
dow at his bick, which in reality was
closed. An instance of this known to
the medical faculty is more strange 'I
still. Two men stayed at a house in
which an inmate had died of cholera.
One man placed in the room in which G
the patient haid died was in ignorance h
of what had occurred. He slept well n
and was no worse. The other, wrong- d
ly told that the room in which he slept o:
was that in which the cholera patient t1
had died, spent a night of mental ai
agony and in the morning was actual- I

plaint. Ile died of cholera. A
A similar instance was mentioned w
the other day by a friend of the writ- v
er. Two London men stayed in the si
country at a house where scarlet fever "
was reported. One, an unimaginative, -
I healthy minded fellow, awoke all right o1
in the morning. The other, a nervous, e:
sensitive man, was very ill-had not ei
slept and had broken out into a terri- S.
ble rash which both declared to be tc
scarlet fever. A wire to a London n
medical man was dispatched, and by t3
the first train he hurried down. The f
supposed fever patient proved to have S
no fever at all beyond an imaginary A
one. As a fact, there was no scarlet b
fever in the house, the case had been ti
wrongIy diagnosed. and the frightened tc
visitor h ad tortured himself into a vio- ai

BASKET BALL. o
Am American Game With No Uncer- b
tainiy s to Its Origin. g
Eja.-.ket ;All as a recreative game is 1
unique in its origin for two reasons: V
First, it is our one positively sure,
home American production; secondly,
the name, date and place of its au
thorship are exactly known. Basket j1
ball was born in the year 1891 at
Springfield, Mass., and its author was
James Naismith. The story is short ei
enough to be interesting. In that town h,
is a training school connected with bi
the Young Men's Christian assocla- m
tion and of course professors, among h,
thm a professor of psychology, who ej
is paid to teach the young ideas how nj
I to think effectively. In one of his lec- V
tures he called attention to certain con- r,
ditions upon which the brain could a
with advantage be exercised and chal- tc
lenged his class to supply the require- w
ments to meet them. The coiditions ef
were the invention of a new game cl
which could be played indoors in a tj
limited area by a defined and unaltera- it;
ble number of contestants and adapta- ul
ble to both sexes. Upon this hypoth- w
esis one of his pupils, James Nal- ni
smith, the same night evolved basket
ball. It was put into practice the next hi
day experimentally and found to meet ta
the conditions and limitations laid a:
down by the professor admirably. But w
it had more than an academic value, Ifi
as its spread as one of our most ap- ht
preciated pastimes attests.-Illustrat- al

A Strange Exsplosion.
A celebrated doctor in Reims, while
visiting a patient and listening to his
troubles, put his hand in his pocket
and mechanically rubbed together some p
pastils which were there. Suddenly a r
slight explosion took place, and at the t
same time the doctor experienced .a
sharp paiin in his hand. Upon exami
nation he found that the bottom of his
pocket was burned out and that his a
under linen was much scorched, while
one of his fingers was also injured. si
Hle remembered that he had carried
in his pocket for some days two pastils ~
containing chlorate of potash and one hi
pastil containing chlorate of sugar. ha
The last named wvas broken into little S
pieces. while of the potash pastils one e
was intact. but no trace could be found ot
of the other. It seems that the doctor ,
had rubbed the chlorate of potash pas- b:
til against the chlorate of sugar pastil y,
and that at the point of contact a small p
quantity of explosive powder had been c:
formed. This had ignited, with the re-m
sut that the chlorate of potash pastil tc

Twain's "Gilded Age."
The real name of the hero of "The
ilded Age" was Eschol Sellers, and
e was an inventor and an active pro
toter very well known in the early
iys of the new west. His father was
ie of the first locomotive builders in
te United States, with works at Phil
ielphia. Eschol Sellers and Charles
udley Warner occupied adjoining
)uses some years before "The Gilded
ge" was written. Sellers at that time
as developing a coal field near Shaw
etown, Ill., at what was then and Is
ill known as Sellers' Landing. He
,as also inventing a process after
-ard largely used in making paper
it of Indian weed pulp. He was also
;perimenting with the camel back
igine. Notwithstanding the fact that
eilcrs' enterprises were destined all
i be successiul, Charles Dudley War
)r conceived the idea that he was a
-pical visionary dreamer. He there
re suggested the name of Eschol
?llers for the hero of "The Gilded
ge," and Mark Twain used the name,
Aieving it to be fictitious. One of
e first copies of the book happened
be seen by Eschol Sellers, who went
once to Hartford and enjoined the
blication. A compromise was ef
eted by which the publishers paid
allers $5,000 for damages and cut all
the plates, removing the name
schol and substituting that of Mul
rry. Eschol Sellers died at a very
Ivanced age at his pleasant home on

A Crooked Spire.
The most curious spire in England is
Chesterfield, the leaning tower of
Esa not being more interesting to
ghtseers 'than the queer kink in a re

as caused by the devil kicking out as
passed the spire. The devil had just
id his hoofs shod by a local black
alth, and his pain was so intense the
ifice was shaken out of shape. An
her and wittier legend says the spire
as bowing to a lovely and virtuous

have bent the spire rather than an
