"No" is Unique.
"It seems odd that the English al
phabet, out of which can be construct
ed several thousands of words, con
tains just one word fotmed by the let
ters in their present order." remarked
the observant young man. "That word
is 'No.' You can look the alphabet
over, and you won't find any other'
combination of vowel and consonant
characters that will form a word. The
nearest approach is 'Ab,' which by
straining a point might be considered
an abbreviation of 'Abraham,' or 'Hp
which might answer as short for 'Hi
ram.' But 'No,' one of the shortest
words in the language, is the only
bona fide word formed in the arrange
ment of the alphabet's , twenty-six

The trade of toothstainer, followed pr
in eastern Asia, is as odd a calling as eas
any. The natives prefer black teeth ani
to the whiter kind, and the toothstain
er, with a little box of brushes and
coloring matter, calls on his customers
and stains their teeth. The process is
not unlike that of blacking a boot, for
a fine polish is given to the teeth. The
pigment used is quite harmless. In
Arabia the trade of "gossiper" has
many followers. The "gossiper" col
lects all the new~ tittle-tattle. jokes
and stories he can get hold of :nd i
then goes from house to house retail

and can adapt his recitals to his audi
ences he makes a very fair income.

The Greatest Things Are the Simplesi
The trouble with us is that we look
too high an1 too far away. for our
chances. Wa forget that the greatest
thibgs are the simplest. In hunting for
roses we trample the daisies under our
feet. We are blind to th." chances and
blessings near us because we are look
ing so far away for them. Everything
depends upon the power of the mind to
see opportunities. It is the eye that can
see the chance, the pluck and determi
nation to lay hold of it and wring from
it every possibility that we lack rather
than the chance "to make good."-Orl
