On the Blake Mountain.
Nothing strikes a visitor to the Black
mountain more forcioly than the per
fect security of a country where every
man Is a warrior and goes about his
daily business with his revolver in his
belt. The traveler is sacred to the
Montenegrins, whose manners prove
the truth of the. saying that they are
the aristocracy of the Servian race.
Dressed in their picturesque national
garb of blue knickerbockers, white gai
ters and crimson jackets, with pork pie
caps of scarlet and black on their
heads, the mountaineers look the beau
ideal of a nation of fighters, such as
the old Greeks must have been in the
days when they all carried arms. Their
whole history during the five centuries
of Montenegrin independence has been
one long series of frontier fends. :nd
even now guerrilla warfare on the Al
banian border is not extinct. But t0
the stranger within their gates, what
ever be his nationality, the mountain
eers are friendly and hospitable.
The Stars and Stripes.
A German periodical has the follow.
lig story as to the origin of the stars
and stripes: The idea originated with
a Dane named Marker. lie was born
on the island of St. Croix of the Dani.h
West Indies, where his father and
grandfather had lived. In 1795 he left
his native island and proceeded to Phil
adelphia. He was among the first to
join a company of volunteers for
American liberty and independence.
For valor shown at Oriskany he was
elected captain, and to show his grati
tude he designed a flag in whose upper
corner he applied the thirteen stars
emblematic of the thirteen original
states of the Union. This was the first
occasion. upon which the "star span
gled banner" was unfurled. The origi
nal flag of Captain Marker Is supposed
to be in existence in some national col
lection of relies of the war of the Revo
Hats In Parliament.
During the reign of King John (1109)
the king agreed to settle the difficulty
with Philip II. of France respecting the
Dutchy of Normandy by single com
bat. John, earl of Ulster, was the
English champion, and as soon as he
appeared on the field of combat his
adversary put spurs to his horse and
I fled, leaving the earl master of the
field. King John asked the earl what
his reward should be. "Titles and land
I want not," he replied, "but In remem
brance of this day I beg the boon, for
myself and my successors, to remain
covered In the presence of your majes
ty and all other sovereigns of this
realm." This request was granted and
never revoked, and it is said to account
for the custom In parliament of mem
bers wearing their hats.-London Stand
Webster as a Farmer.
'Webster was a scientific farmer. He
believed thoroughly in the value of
blooded stock. At Marshfield he had a
herd of sixty or eighty head of cattle
composed entirely of thoroughbred an
!mals-of Alderneys, Ayrshires and
Devons. He had several yoke of Dev
on oxen, which were his particular
pride. Besides, there were blooded
sheep and swine. All in all, Webster
was considered by his neighbors the
best farmer of the country. He was,
moreover, a friend generous and con
siderate. There used to be .a saying
down Plymouth way that a stranger
could always tell when Webster was at
home by the. cheerful looks of the peo
pe for ten miles around.--Oliver Bron
son Capen in Country Life In America.
Roman lamps were of many 'sizes,:
but most of them very closely resem-I
bled what Is at present denominated a
sauce or gravy boat. At one end there
was a ring, through which the finger
wa passed when the light was carried.
The body of the vessel was filled with
oil, and at the other end there was a
small tube, through which a rag wick
was passed. When this was lighted the
smoke and odor of the rancid fat em
ployed were extremely offensive. Many
Roman poets mention the abominable
etluvium sent out by the lamps at the

there Is a place which rejoices in the

Town exchange, "which speaks of lei

thi'sty traveler to rest a little by the
brook beneath the cool shade of the
tree calls up at once the thought of a
green oasis in a dry and barren land."

Always on the Watch.
Children have ears like~the very spies
of nature Itself-eyes that penetrate all
subterfuge and pretense. It is good to
set before them the loftiest Ideals that
have lived In human reality, but the
best ideal of all has to pe portrayed by
parents in the realities of home life at
home. When you are not watching
and the children are--that is when the
lessons are learned for life.

Thirty Dollars a Word.
A poet and literary man of some ce
lebrity was visited In his study one
morning by a manager of a lecture bu
reau, who said that he had called to
ask the writer to take part in an en
"We want you to read selections
from your own works, Mr. Gillespie,
together with an original poem com
posed expressly for the occasion. Name
your own price. We'll announce in the
"My price," interrupted Mr. Gillespie,
'will be $60."
"Isn't that a little steep?"
"Not at all, everything considered."
The manager tried to beat him down
to $50. but he was immovable, and the
bargain was finally closed at the' first
"Alpheus." said Mrs. Gillespie after
the caller had gone, "wasn't that more
than you intended to charge him when
he first spoke?"
"Yes," he said: "it's just twice as
much. But lie irritated me thirty dol
lars' worth by calling it 'progr'm.'"
What.Gave the Earfr Its Motion?
You have often a:iked or had the
question asked of you, *'What gave the
earth its daily motion, and how is the'
force of that motion kept up?" but have
never been really satisfied with the an
swer given or the reasons therefor
which you were able to advance in ex
planation. The astronomers are not
even agreed upon this question. Some
of them claim that the "original initial
centrifugal force" was directed in a
line slightly to one side of the center
of the globe, which would, of course,
cause the earth to rotate upon its axis,
and by the law of Inertia of matter
must continue to revolve at a uniform
rate of speed. This "law of the inertia
of matter" Is to the effect that matter
once set in motion must continue to
move until arrested by some outside
force. Others claim that the motion is
a "compound resultant of the motion of
the earth in its orbit and the attraction
of the sun."
How a Wound Heals.
If you have run a pin into your thumb
or received a bayonet thrust precisely
the same thing takes place. A myriad
of white corpuscles, those tiny "first
aid" cells (the phagocites) from the
surrounding blood vessels and lym
phatic glands at once come hurrying
to the rescue. They begin to clean up
whatever wreck there has been made
in the skin and muscular tissue. They
eagerly absorb into themselves or clus
ter opposingly about all foreign mat
ter that has been introduced into the
wound. Then they proceed ~to pile
themselves tier upon ier around it
like so many little sandbags about a
broken bastion. Later they gradually
join together and solidify into the lay
er of new skin which appears beneath
the sloughed off scab. They are at once
workmen and repairing material.-A.
E. MacFarlane in McClure's.
Why He Sees Double.
The reason that a man sees double
who has gazed too long on the wine
when it is red is that the nerve centers
are changed by the action of the alco
hol. There is a want of harmony In the
action of the muscles which move the
eyeballs. Consequently instead of both
eyes being focused simultaneously on
an object one eye receives an impres
sion independently of the other. The
two impressions are communicated to
the brain, and the object is therefore
seen twice. The inflamed condition and
loss of energy in the brain centers from
overdoses of alcohol also account for
the staggering gait of an intoxicated
How Icelanders Tie Horses.
The Icelanders have a strange but
effective plan for preventing horses
straying away from any particular
spot. If two gentlemen happen to be
riding without attendants and wish. to
leave their horses for any reason they
tie the head of one horse to the tall of
the former. In this state it is utterly
impossible for the horsesi to move on,
either backward or forward. If dis
posedto move at all it will be only in a
circle, and even then there must be
mutual agreement to turn their heads
the same way.
The Money Lendec'.
There are many examples of Lord
Palmerston's ready wit in Sir Mt. E.
Grant Duff's book, "Notes From a
Diary." In a debate about the Jews
an orator rather bored the house by
enumerating many of the things which
the English owed to Hebrew Initiative.
Lord Palmerston In reply gave the dis
cussion a sprightlier turn. "I quite
agree with the honorable gentleman,"
he remarked. "Many of us owe a
great deal to the Jews."
Priests and Beards.
The beardless priest Is only a matter
of custom, there being no edict upon
the subject. All of the popes from
Adrian TI. to Innocent XI. and all
the cardinals and other church clerics
during the same period were bearded
dignitaries. Ignatius Loyola, St. Fran
cis Xavier, Francis de Sales, Vincent
de Paul and the Cardinals Bellarmine
and Richelieu all wore full beards.

it cannot be too often repeated that

cilities, but difficulties, that make men.
Rossini was one of the most indolent
men that ever lived, yet he wrotQ op
