All that is known with any certainty
of Nicholas Is the bare fact that be
lived in Asia Minor somewhere about
the beginning of the fourth century.
He was bishop of Myra, a Lycian sea
coast town. venerable, of course, for
his piety and benevolence, and fe was
revered in the east at least as early as
the sixth century. In the Qreek church
he takes rank immediate., after the
five great fathers, and under the name
of St. Nicholas of Myra he is esteemed
as patron saint of by far the largest
body of Orthodox Greeks, the Russian
empire. As early as the year 560 Jus
tinian dedicated a church in Constanti
nople to- the renowned bishop. In the
west, where for a reason he is more
commonly known as St. Nicholas of
Bari, he was acclimatized for good In
the eleventh century. His vogue in the
north began with the twelfth, but ex
tended so rapidly that by the reforma

alone more churches and chapels dedi

To do so only exaggerates your con

it casts a shadow of gloom over other

cold chills to be continually told that

Sometimes it costs an effort, a tremen

the man or woman who can say it is
much better off for thus looking at

person who harbors a grievance against

The Tempering of Copper.
The expression "the tempering of
copper" arises from a thirteenth cen
tury misunderstanding of the Greek
word baphe-a word used by the
Greco-Egyptian alchemistic writers of
the third century. Berthelot, the emi
nent authority on alchemy, has. shown
that this word may mean. tempering,
coloring (of cloth, glass And metals),
the coloring materials or the coloring
bath. Egyptian alchemy was busied
originally in producing brilliant
bronzes on copper and the copper al
loys, and this expression "the temper
ing of copper" means, and always has
meant, bronzing copper so. that it may
simulate silver or gold.-Arthur Jones
Hopkins in New York Times.

The Right of Way.
In the early days of western railway
building, days not so long gone by as
to be out of memory, there were many
exciting races between rival roads for
the possession of important mountain
passes. Such a race, says the World's
Work, was that between the Santa Fe
i and the Rio Grande roads for the right
of way through Raton pass to New
Mexico and the southwest.
Engineers and construction gangs
worked In mad haste to get to it ahead
of their riv'ds The victory fell to the
chief or the Santa Fe. When the Rio
Grande cohorts arrived they round him
alone in one o1 the big gorges, shovel In
hand, slicing earth from an 8,000 foot
"What are you doing here?" they
"Constructing a railroad," he replied.
He turned another shovelful of dirt,
dropped the t(, .1 and hitched up his
heavy cartridgc b.elt.

Santa Fe does it at his own risk," he
First the Rio Grande men laughed,
and then they raged, and then they
turned and went away. Their road
was cut off from the south forever.
A Bath In Bubbles.
"To take a bath at Tiflis, in Russian
Caucasia, is to court a never to be for
gotten experience," says one who
knows. "The masseur who presides
over the toilet of his patrons is a weird
looking figure. His head Is shaved, a
rag is twisted around his waist, and
his fedt. are dyed a beautiful red. You
are seized by this individual, rubbed,
pushed face downward on a marble
slab, find his feet in your spine and
his hands upon your shoulders. Then
he grinds his feet up and down your
back. They are round your neck, on
your head-everywhere! Then he
vaults lightly off, and In a moment,
from a linen bag filled with soap, he
has squeezed clouds of perfumed bub

CONCEIT OF THE SOMALI. -
He Feels He Is About the most Pew

Perhaps the most remarkable charac
teristic of the natives of Somaliland is
their unbounded, preposterous conceit.
Englishmen who know their language
have been appalled by it. When wa

encourages the animal t8 drink by
chanting to it in a monott.ne. -It is at
snu moments of extemporary effusion
that the man shines in all his' glory.
The subject matter may be the experi

of the animal beside him, the charms
of his latest wife or his own prowess in
some bloodless tribal raid. By great
good fortune the following literal trans
lation of one of these chants or songs
came into my possession, and I insert
it without any comment:
