Art' by the Ton.
An. Anerican city once asked Mac
Monnies, the sculptor, to enter a design
for army and navy groups for a sol
9diers' and sailors' monument. He de
clined to compete. Then the commis
sion was tendered to him outright He
submitted sketches of his idea for the
groups. The committee in charge of
the monument wrote - him, asking,
"How many tons of granite do you in
tend .to use in the base?" His reply
was: -"If you are in the business of
buying granite you may use as much
as 'ou want, one topi or 100,000 tons.
I am an artist, and I never yet heard
of art being bought by the pound."
The question was dropped until. the
contract for the commission 'was
drawn. When Mr. MacMonnies re
ceived it he discovered in it a clause
providing that in case the bronzes were
ever thrown down from their base, by
any cause whatever, and any person
or property should be injared, he and
his heirs forever should be liable for
the damage sustained. He returned
the contract without comment, unsign
ed. When tie committee wrote him,
asking the reason, his brief reply was,

The Ralng Passion Strong In Death.
The ruling passion of Edward I. of
England was undoubtedly the pursuit
of his ideal of uniting all the British
islands under one rule. His great ob
stacle was Scotland, and the conquest
of Scotland, therefore, became a pas
sion with him. Stronger than years, it
sent him to the head of the army when
he was fit only for a sick bed, and
when he was at last compelled to
yield he sought to make this passion
spur on his son by ordering that the
flesh should be boiled from Ais bones
and that his skeleton should be car
ried at the head of, the army and re
main unburied till Scotland was con
This is the most conspicuous instance
ot "the ruling passion strong In death"
on record, though many others would
be worthy of quotation. William Pitt's
patriotism endured to his last gasp and
spired his last utterance, as did Nel
son's lifelong- determination to secure
the command of the sea,* while Napo
leon's last dream was one of battle.
Peasant and Pigs.
A clever smuggling trick has been
played on a customs officer on the
Russo-German frontier. An innocent
looking peasant reported to the officer
a plot for getting a large number of
'pigs across the frontier. The method,
he said, would be to drive across at in
tervals of half an hour, 3, 6, 12 and 200
pigs, the smugglers arguing that if the
first three lots could be sent over there
would be no trouble with the 200.
The officer was naturally on the alert.
In accordance with the peasant's state
ment three pigs were driven over, then
six, followed by twelve. All were al
lowed, to *pass, and preparations were
made to receive the 200. But no more
pigs appeared, and the twenty-one ani
mals admitted had in the meantime
been lodged in safety.-Berlin Cor.

CHINESE ART IN STONE.
Its Best ExamPles and Some of Ito
The spirit of purely Chinese art in
stone is shown in work such as the
great monolith figures of animals and
warriors which flank the approach to
the tombs of the Ming dynasty and in
the perfectly plain structures designed
for the tombs of the present dynasty.
These 'are composed of enormous
blocks of stone brought with infinite
labor from distant quarries over roads
and bridges which are hardly capable
of sustaining ordinary cart traffic and
have always to be specially prepared
to prevent the great weights causing
The same -admiration for the employ
ment of huge blocks of stone is seen
in the case of the bridges over the riv
ers along the coast of South Fukien,
where the stone slabs used in t.:e con
struction occasionally measure sixty
feet in length and are estimated to
weigh nearly 120 tons, and the bridges
themselves have a length of 1,000 to
In almost all cases where the bild
ings are not of solid construction the
weight of the blocks employed has
placed a strain u: >n the supports which
the architect's skill was not competent
to provide against, and with the lapse
of time the melancholy spectacle is
seen of slabs fallen from their places
andof noble and costly structures.
approaching ruin. In some cases the
interdependence of the arches leads to
the same result One notable instance
of this occurred during Colonel Gor

when to allow of the passage of his
small steamers It was necossary to
make a gap in a bridge of over twenty
arches, and arch after arch collapsed
immediately after the passage of his

THE GIANT INDIANS.
Peculiar Ways of the Onas of Tierra
The Onas, a tribe of Indians inhabit
ng the mainland of the Tierra del Fu
ego island, are physical giants. Their
average height is over six feet. A few
are six and one-half feet; a few fall be
low six feet. The women are more cor
pulent and not so tall. There is no
race in the world with a more perfect
physical development than the Ona In
dians. This is partly due to the topog
raphy of the country and the distribu
tion. of the game, which makes long
'arches across the c'ountry a necessity.
In mentality they fall far below their
physical attainments. In the past their
supply of game has been plentiful, and
this may .account for the lack of in
ventive genius among them. This lack
of progressive skill is portrayed in their
home life, clothing and homes. Their
children suffer from it, for, contrary to
the practice common among most In
dians of feeding, dressing and training
the children well, the Onas' little ones
are mostly naked, poorly fed and alto
gether neglected. They have abundant
material for supplying themselves with
clothing and homes, and yet they throw
a few branches together, put skins over
the windward side and then shiver un
der the miserable shelter.
Scientists who have made a study of
the subject say that the language of
the Onas is the strangest ever listened
to. Many of the words are not difficult
to pronounce, nor Is the construction
of thie'sentences difficult, but very few
words are Interriipted by a sound
which It is Impossible to produce. The
speaker hacks, coughs and grunts, dis
torting his face In the most inhuman
manner, and then passes on to the next
stumbling block. The Onas live princi
pally upon meat, which In former years
was obtained from the guanaco.-New

Pawning a Bank Book.
The pawning of the wedding ring has
become a pathetic commonplace to
those who are familiar with police
e6urt and coroner's court stories or
with the private petitions for help of
the deserving and undeserving poor.
'But we confess that with the West
minster magistrate we have never
heard before of pawning bank books.
Yet on expert pawnbroker's evidence
elicited by police inquiry ito is 'found
that this is not at all an unusual prac
tice. In the vast majority of cases it
would seem to be a simpler matter to
draw oi the bank account rather than
borrow on the strength of it from the
pawnshop. But one of the unfortunate
,possibilities of the practice is revealed
in the particular case mentioned at
Westminster. A picture frame maker,
wishing to withdraw f3 from the bank,
could not find his bank book and then
learned that his wife had been putting I
the book in and out of pawn for eight
years, having borrowed ?7 10s. on it
the first time. and of course -Aie had
been paying intere t on her various
transactions.-London Pall Mali Ga
Robinson Crusoe, Economist.
When the average boy spends the de
lighted hours of imaginativ' y6uth in
devouring the pages of "Robinson Cru
soe" he has, like most people of more
mature years. no idea that he is perus
ing a work of profound philosophy
written by one of the greatest political
thinkers of the English speaking race.
Taken with a knowledge of the facts
of the career of. De Foe, "Robinson
Crusoe" can properly be considered a
story intended to illustrate the heavy
burden of trouble placed upon any sin
gle individual isolated from his fellows
and compelled to maintain his exist
ence without their aid. The tale shows
in an inimitable way how all civilized
men are Interdependent. Regarded
from this point of view, the author of
the most widely read work of fiction
ever written becomes an object of par
ticular interest to all thinkers upon
politics.-William N. Hill, M. D., In
To "Pound" Words.
When the reputability of punning is
under discussion it is well to bear .in
mind that the very name of the jest
confesses to a degree of atrocity. To
"pun," according to the London Chron
icle, is to "pound" words, to beat them
into forced conditions, so the philolo
gists believe. -He would pun thee Into
shivers with his fist," says Thersites
in "Troilus and Cressida," meaning
physical "pounding." "Pun" is not a
slipshod development of "pound," but
its original form, the Anglo-Saxon verb
being "punian," and "pun'' or "poun"
having developed a final "d," just as
"soun" became "sound" and as the
illiterate turn "gown" into "gownd."
Curiously enough, "pun" and "pound"
have no connection with "punching" a
man's head, which Is simply "punish
ing," contracted, or with "punching"
a ticket, which goes back to the Latin
"pungere," to prick or puncture.
Sir Humphiry Davy.
Sir Humphry Davy married a widow
as peculiar as himself. His pet affec
tation was a lack of time. He was al
ways in a hui-ry. He pretended that
he had no leisure to dress himself, and
when a change of linen became neces
sary he simply put one shirt over an
other until he was known to have on
five or six shirts at a time. Of course
he could not wear this amount of ap
parel without appreciably increasing
his size, and his friends not in the se
cret were sometimes surprised to see
him fall off in apparent weight twenty
pounds in a day. His wife's great anx
iety was to keep him "fit for company,"
but as he did not care a fig for com
pany she had no easy task, and domes
tic discord was a common thing.
The cups of the Assyrians closely
