It is quite an interesting thing to
learn that some of our best known
proverbs and mottoes were originally
used in connection with sundials. Be
fore the days of watches and clocks,
when dials and sun marks were among
the rude means of reckoning time, it
was a prevailing custom to Inscribe
Among the maxims traceable to this
source are, "Make hay while the sun
shines," "The longest day must end"
and "All things do wax and wane."
Sundials spoke the truth, as may be
inferred from a historic one which was
placed on St. Paul's cross, in London,
and which proclaimed, 1 number none
but sunny hours." This no one will
doubt who has had occasion to consult
a dial on an overcast day.
A famous dial in Sussex, England,
bore four famous mottoes applicable to
the flight of time and, the brevity of
life. They were as follows: "After
darkness, light." "Alas, how swift!"
"I warn whilst I move" and "So passes
Another old sundial spoke petulant
ly about the same subject in the words,
"Sirrah, be gone about your business."
A Sensitive Horse.
Harsh treatment, though it stop short
of inflicting physical pain, keeps a
nervous horse in a state of misery. On
the other hand, it is perfectly true, as

A single blow may be enough to spoil

intelligent horse, and also extremely

Long Winded Orators.
Edmund Burke's greatest speech is
generally considered to have been the
one on "Conciliation with America."
The report of the speech, supplied by
Burke himself, runs. to as many as
thirty-two pages. It contains over 30,
000 words. It, therefore, could not
have been delivered under less than
five hours. It is curious, by the way,
how long winded all the great British
orators were in Burke's time. The
older Pitt was the first to indulge in
long speeches in the house of com
mons. After he had delivered one of
these famous orations he was hailed
by crowds outside the house with en
thusiastic cries of "Three hours and a
half! Three hours and a half!" "Just
as if a man can talk sense for three
hours and a half," remarked the cyni
cal Chesterfield, who happened to pass
A Railroad of Curves.
The first railroad west of the Alle
ghanies was built from LTxington to
Frnnkfort, Ky., in 1831. The road was
laid out with as many curves as possi~
ble, the engineers declaring that this
was an advantage. The cars were in
two stories, the lower for women and
children, the upper for men, four per
sons being seated in each compartment.
The cars were at first drawn by mules,
but after a time a locomotive was made
by a Lexington mechapiec. The tender
was a big box for' wood, and a hogs.
head was provided for water which
was drawn in buckets from convenient
wells. In place of a cowcatcher there
were two poles in front fitted with
hickory brooms for sweeping the track.
The First Phenix.
Legend tells us that the first phenis
was born in the garden of Eden and
had Its nest In a great red rose--the
first rose that ever bloomed. When
the angel drove Adam and Eve out
of paradise a spark of fire fell from
the angel's fiery sword and burned up
the phenix and his nest Out of the
ashes sprang a glorious bird, which
also lived 500 years before mysterious
ly burning itself, at every recurrence
of which a new phenir is said to arise.

During the directoire Mario de Medi
ci's palace became the center of gov
ernmc-nt and Barras reigned there un
der the inspiration of Mme. Tallien. It
was she who organized all the fetes
and ceremonies which enlivened Paris
after the Terror. In 170G the beautiful
Spaniard was twenty-three and had al
ready had an eventful past. The daugh
ter of a financier named Cabarrus, she
had married at the age of sixteen the
Marquis de Fontenay, been divorced
from him in 1703 and had remarried, a
few months after, Tallien, the conven
Arrested May 22, 1704, she was im
prisoned in Les Carmes, and it was
from here that she wrote the stinging
epistles to her husband which induced
that wavering spirit to dare all in the
attempt to set her free. Armed with
a dagger in case of failure and all the
courage he 'could muster, Tallien on
the famous 9th Thermidor attacked
Robespierre in a debate which brought
about the fall of the "sea green mon
The reign of terror came to an end,
the prisons disgorged their victims, and
Mme. TaIllen received from the people
the title of Notre Dame dejhermidor.
The world was at her feet, and she daz
zled it by-her beauty and her charm,
her lovers and her luxury. Even wom
en forgot to be jealous and acknowledg
ed what all men proclaimed. The fol
lowing description is from the pen of
one of her own sex, Mme. de Chaste
"Mime. Tallien came every day to
visit Barras. I do not think it possible
to be lovelier than this woman was
then. I shall always see her like a
fairy queen among the rest, her beau
tiful black hair coiled simply on her
head without any ornament, round her
neck a single string~ of large pearls.
She * wore a white underdress and
tunic of ink crepe, and, sitting on the
ground playing with a child of three,
the son of one of Barras' friends, they
made a group which no classic sculp
ture could surpass."
Barras tells us with great naivete, in
his memoirs, that the "Little Coi'sican"
only turned his attention to Josephine
Beauharnais after a fruitless attempt
to obtain favor with Mme. Tillien and
that this lady had treated him with
great disdain, telling him "she could do
better for herself." This account of
the affair coming from any other quar
ter would be more credible.
A considerable event was now to
take place at the Lutembourg-namely,
the reception given to General Bona
parte after the campaign of Italy. For
this ceremony (Dec. 10, 1797) the court
yard of the palace was transformed
into a sort of temple, and an altar to
la Patrie erected in the grand entrance
hall. The five directors, with Barras
at their head, attired themselves as
Romans, while Talleyrand, the min
ister of foreign affairs, was prepared
with an elaborate harangue.
The scene was made -additionally
brilliant by the presence of many la
dies, whose splendid jewels and rich
dresses did honor to the occasion,
while their eager faces and murmured
admiration betrayed their interest in
the young hero. Among these groups
not the least noticeable were Mmne. de
Stael and Mmne. Recamier-"Wit and
Beauty," as Napoleon himself named
Alone of all the assembly the inture
emperor had assumed no inmposingecos
tume. His uniform, that of a general of
the Revolution, suggested a character
of republican simplicity, while his pal
lor; his gravity and, quiet demeanor
seemed to deprecate the ceremony of
which he was the object The tone of
his speech was equally modest, his
theme the pi-ide he felt in his country's
*scientinle conquests and her "progress
in the paths of peace.
Surely no government could suspect
a rival in so well disposed a young
man. Two years later the coup d'etat
of Bruma'ire drove Barras from the
Luxembourg, and the dirst assembly,
which in France has borne the title of
senate, began its sittings in the palace.

* MONEY SLANG.
Ters Applied to Coins and Bank
Notes Kn England.
"We may think there is a great deal
of slang in English as we commonly
use it~ in this country," Mr. J. E. Sora
gh-an observes, "but in at least one re
spect the colloquial tongue of England
surpasses the wealth of terms we pos
sess in this regard, and that is the
slang relating to money. The American
uses astonishingly few slang words In
speaking of pieces of money, perhaps
because he has a greater respect for it
A ive cent piece is usually referred to
as a nickel, but this is practically the
only slang term applied to any of our
money in general use. A dime Is offi
aialy a dime, and so is a quarter.
-But turn to the English appellations
for their money and hardly a bit of it
is referred to under Its authorized andJ
official designation. A shilling is seldom
called such in London. They call it a
'bob,' and a 'quid,' yvhich means a piec(
of tobacco in this country, Is what they
term a pound. Sixpence they call a
'tanner,' fourpence a 'joey' and a penn3
more often than not is unknown to the
street gamnins save as a 'mnag.' A cab
man will not tell you a ride will cost
5 shillings, but that it will require
'bull' to pay for it, and a half crown-is
'half a bull.' These are prevailing ex
pressions for the pieces of ioney wide
ly handled, but proper terms for highe:
amounts are kicked aside and collo
qui terms substituted for them.
-At a race track if a bettor says hi
has ventured a 'pony' on the probabli
outcome of a race he does not mear
that as it would appear to us, hut sim
ply that he has wagered ?25 on the re
suit. Where money is handled-in larg'
amounts it is not an infrequent thinl
to hear one say of another that he has
a 'monkey' of money, meaning that th<
individual referred to is the proud p0s
sessor of ?300. So You see in comnpar
