THE FIRST CRUDE METHODS USED
IN GREAT BRITAIN.
Tracks Were Merely Stout Planks or
Maybe Blocks of Stone-The Flange
Was Invented Toward the End of
the Seventeenth Cent. Y.
It is not known with any certainty
when the first pair of parallel tracks
for wheIeled tid-alc ivas' laid down in
Oreat Britain or whether it was ,f
wooid or of stone. Perhaps th& forier
Is the more probable, the material be
lng found eyerywbere- and its long
shape being.,iuch more .suggestive of
fitness for such a phrpose than stone..
But so long as each neighborhood pro
duced everything it wanted such thingis
were not needed. At last the destrue
tion of timber near LonCon imade the
use of coal indispensable. This could
only be conveyed by sea, and one of
the few- places where It could be got
with :the. limited appliances and skill
of those days was - the Iralley of - the
Tyne, j-st above and below, Newcastle.
About ..300 years ago a considerable
trade in coal for shipment began there,
which soon led to difficulties as to get
ting -it-from the. mines- into -the boats.
The distances were small, but the art
of -roadmaking -had diet .olt- and in
bad- weather pack horses could not
carry enough to render.their use profit
able. Soine unknown beneftar tihis7
species at last laid down two parallel
lines of timber for carts to run on.
Probably -they were merely stout
planks at first, but the sinliing at the
joints would soon suggest that other
planks should- be placed under them,
the structure then becoming fairly ef
ficient. When flanges, either-- on the
wheels or the rails, were first invented
or by whom is not known, but. it was
apparently toward the end :of the
Those wooden railroads seem -to have
survived throughout the !reater part
of the following. century, and even into
the-nineteenth in some c'ases. 'The Mid
dleton colliery railroad at Leeds, for
instance, was of wood 'until-it was
relaid for the use of Blenkinsop's rack
rail engines. These were started in
1812 and were inqdestionably the first
commercially successful locomotives.
Many other wooden railroads lad ex
isted in the same neighborhood for
fifty or sixty years previously, and no
doubt In -:other - colliery - distriots as
well. One was laid down near Shef
field, for instance, so early as about
1712 from the Duke of Norfolk's col
liery at The Manor into the town, near
ly one and one-half miles down hill. It
lasted till 1775, when it was destroyed
in a riot. Next year it was reconstruct
ed with the first cast iron flanged rails
by James Outram, their jiavent'or. .
wooden railroad long existed at Bath.
It was laid do'wn in' 171 - liy Ralph
Allen, who, having gained a fortune by
postoffice contracts, acquired and de
veloped extensive quarries of the cele
brated Bath oolite stone on Combe
down. These being at i great height
and away from any regular mode of
transit, it became necessary to devise
a means of bringing down such a heavy
material. The wooden railroad occu
pied the site of what Is now cailld
Prior Park road and was laid pairtly
upon low walls and partly on the
ground, "like the wagon ways belong
ig to the collieries in the north of
England." - -
The colliery lines about Newcastle
used in the eighteenth century rails
of beech wood, carefully planed on the
top and pegged down to crosspieces,
which were even then termed "sleep
era'." Longitudinal timbers in addition
were sometimes used, the extra height
being of use in enabling the cross
sleepers to be well covered up and
protected from the action of the horses'
feet. There were usually two lines
of rails, the descending one being called
the main way, the other the byway. ,
The cars held a Newcastle chaldron,
or fifty-three hundredweight, 5.0J36
pounds. They were built of 'fir planks,
strengthened with iron straps, and had
-oak or ash soles. They sloped forward,
having slightly larger wheels at that
end, which was found to ease the
draft. These wheels were of cast
iron, the rear pair being made solid of
pieces of beech wood dovetailed and
lamped together. It was supposed
that brakes held better on wood than
on iron. Some of these wooden lines
ended in a short timber viaduct, where~
the land sloped much to the river,
leading to a shipping'quay, from which
the coal could either be discharged at
once down a chute ,into the "keel"'
or barge which carried it to the ships
or stored if no keels were at hand.

It is almost unthinkable that a bird
should build a nest on the water. Yet
that is exactly what the grebes always
do. With reeds, grass and plant stems
the grebe makes a regular floating is

usually near the opeb water,. of a

are much alike, sometimes moored to
the reeds, but usually floating freely
on the water.--St. Nicholas.

ZOROASiFMANS OF PERSIA.
They Are a Much Persecuted and
Unjustly Judged People.
Zbroaster; the prophet oif ancient
Iran. arose about the -middle of the
seventh century before Christ as a re
former of the older creed df Persia, a
primitive form of nature worship
which had become debased through
corruption and crass superstition. His
birthplace is believed to have been in
the.province of A zarbaijan, to the west
of the Caspiau sea. a 'egion abounding
in voleanlic monutains, hot springs,
naphtha wells and other igneous phe
xomena. By inheritance lie was a mem
ber of the sacerdotal tribe of the Mag!
and by calling a forerunner of the wise
men 'from the east who worshiped cen
turies later at the cradle in Bethlehem.
Inspired by ecstatic visions of heaven
and warned by prophetic signs of the
terrors of hell. he came to teach his
people the ethical meaning of the con
flict between good and evil untler the
form of Ormazd and Ahriman as god
and devil. Filled Ivith the hogle of an
eternal existence after the-'general
resurrection of the dead, he sQught to
lead-his followers to -a more.piritual
life and to teach them the ifral sig
nificance of the motto of his faith,
"Good thoughts. good words, jood
deeds," and to guide them -also In prac
tical ways, inculqating the practice of
- agriculture, kindness- to animals, es
pecially the cow, habits of thrift and
industry, together with those of bodily
cleanliness and the observance of cer
tain rites and ceremonies in their daily
life. Uis death is th:ought to have:oc

Zoroaster's creed becanie the religion.
of an eastern world empire. The law
of the Medes and Persians, which knew
no *change, molded the history of- the
early kingdom of Iran, and the same de
crees prevailed in Bacteria. It was by
Ormazd's will that the sovereign rulers
of these lands held sway, kings by dl
v'ne right. Cyrus the Great is called
the Lord's "anointed" and his "shep
herd" even in the Bible, and "king by
the grace of Auramaz.da" was Darius'
own proud claim. The inscriptions and
the Avesta alike exalt the sacred-maj
esty of the king. But many of those
who once were kings of Zoroaster's line
are now known only by name. Persia.
is Mohammedan, the Persians are
Mussulmans by faith, and Islam has
blotted out much of the..ancient history
and creed. The Zoroastrians of Persia,
stigmatized as Gabars, number not
more than 10,000 souls. Yezd is the
home of about 8,000 of these. Kirman,
a smaller city to the southeast, claims
about 2,000 more. Teheran, the capi
tal, near where Zoroaster's mother is
said to have been born, has less than
300 Shiraz numbers. not fifty of the
ancient belief, Isfahan a half dozen
and some of the minor towns can each
add three or four more to make up
the talesman's count. Frowned upon
as "fire worshipers," which.they really
are not, despised or persecuted as in
fidels, suri-ounded by business .restric
tions an(, social disabilities, the "Jews
of the east," as they are sometimes
called, maintain their lives at high
cost. And yet they possess admirable
qualities, and it is these characteristics
that have preserved their religion from
being utterly effaced. Through ages
of misfortune and distress they have
remained true to it, and by their ster
ling traits "of truth, :nprightness, gen
erosity and devotion they still exem
plify what was best in it.-A. 'V. Wil

to borrow his donkey. "My donkey Is

showed himself at his best when ask

and so on. until he was asked in aston

a manner. "I am doing it as God
would," he answered, with a smile.
The salesman in the jewelry store
was talking of the merits of various
wall clocks to a patron and finally
pointed out one as a great bargain.
"Not for me," Interrupted the ens

wouldn't have it as a gift." "You're
different from the usual run of pur
chasers; they prefer striking clocks."
commented the salesman. "Yes, but
they don't keep billiard rooms," ex
plained the customer. "I want the
clock for my establishment, and a strik
ing clock would lose me money. Pool
and billiards are fascinating games
and players get so absorbed they for

do If there was a clock striking regu

What It~Tiand How the Indiann Used
to Make It.
When Columbus disicovered America
he found the Indians carrying on trade
from tribe-to tribe with wampum.
Anything-that has valug may be used
as moneY.- In anciept Syracuse and
Britain tin was used yamoney, and we
ffid-that iron 'vas so used at one time
In Sparta, pleges of sill:in China, cat
tl' in Roie and Germany, leather
among the Carthaginial" nails in Scot
land, lead in Burma, pi- inum in Rus
sia, cubes of pressed tea in Tartary,
slaves among the Anglo-Saxons, salt
in Abyssinia, etc.
Wampum is from an Algonquin word
meaning "white." The Indians have
ever been fond of ornaments, particu
larly of beads. They used to make
beads of seashells in the following
way: A fragment of stone was with
much care "worked down" to the size
of a small nail, having one end quite
pointed, and it was then fastened to a
piece of cane or a reed. With this
simple tool the Indian workman chip
ped off a bit of the inside of a conch
shell or a part of the shell of a hard
clam and rubbed it down to the size
desired. This bit of shell he held in his
hand, placed the sharp end of the
stone against it and then turned the
stone around and around until a hole
was drilled entirely through the shell.
The shell beads thus tediously manu
factured were called wampum. These
beads were either white or of a purple
color, the last being valued much high
er than the first. It was the iery la
borious way of making wanpiim that
gave it value. The wampum 'as artis
tically strung upon hempen threads
and. used as necklaces, bracelets and
rings. Often it was woven' into belts
about three inches in width and two
feet in length.
The wampum belt servedc many pur
poses. It was sent from tribe to tribe
with solemn promises and messages,
-it was used in making peace, in asking
for aid in time of war, for -personal
adornment and also as a "circulating
medium." The coast tribe Indians
were the wampum makers. The in
terior Indiggj ?pentjheir time hunting
and exchanged gaiie df all kinds -for
the wampum made by the coast tribes.
For a long time after white people
had settled in the new world small
coins were scarce and wampum was
used as change. Finally the palefaces
set up lathes by treadles for the pur
pose of making wampum quickly, and
soon the Indian wampum makers were,
as we say nowadays, "out of a job."
Early English Bookbindings..
During the reign of Elizabeth the
fashion in bookbinding underwent a
considerable. change, the graceful sim
.plicity of the early .work, with its
'rather severe and restrained ornament,
giving place to a heavy, overdecorated
style, in which a superabundance of
gilding hid poverty of design. This
style reached its height in the bindings
produced for ,Tames I., which were
commonly dotted all over with flowers
de-luce or thistles, while the corners
were filled with a heavy block- of
coarse design. During the reign of
Charles the bindings were, as a rule,
copied from French work, and the de
signs carried out with very small
tools; but, though foreign Influence was
strongly felt at first, the English bind
ers soon struck out a line of their own,
and -Samuel Mearne, the binder to
Charles II., produced some admirable
work and seems to have Introduced

the name of cottage binding to a cer

date an Edinburgh binder, whose name

A well known physician once told a
patient who he suspected was receiv
ing too many calls from solicitous
friends to make a stroke with a pencil
on a piece of paper every time he was
asked, "How are you today?'' The- re
sult for one day was just twenty-four
strokes, and the physician immediately
gave strict orders that no visitor
should be permitted to enter the sick
room until further notice, remarking
to the nurse that if his patient must
be worried to death there was at least
no reason why it should be done in
such an unscientific manner. Only
those who have suffered serious illness
know how trying it is to be required
to answer again and again the same
question asked by one well meaning
individual after another. -It would
matter less if visitors contented them
selves with asking just one question,
but they do not, and the minute de
tails of one's ailments become pecul
iarly depressing after a few repeti
tions.. Many people .forget that rest
ad quiet are often invaluable agents
in securing restoration to health.
In the ornamenting and beautifying
of gardens the Chinese excel over all
other nations. By means of a variety
of winding walks they make a small
place appear twice as large as it really
Is. Innumerable flowerpots, contain-'
ing a -great variety of beautiful asters,
of which they are very fond, are some
times arranged in a labyrinth, from
which you cannot get out again with
out a guide. They seem to have a very
extensive assortment of asters; one
species is quite white, as large as a
rose, with long graceful leaves, which
the Chinese use in the season for salad,
justly esteeming them a very great
delicacy. When the asters are all in
full bloom, the pots arranged hand
