There has been much discussion as to
whether one dreams oily on falling to

or whether dreams take place at any
time during sleep. While not definitely
determined as yet, the evidence seems
to be rather in favor of the view that
one may drean at any time during
the night or the whole night through.
Dreaming is common to perfectly
healthy persons. and in itself is no
evidence of disorder.-Harper's Maga
In mountain climbing the world over
the climber usually arrives fresh and
unfatigued at the base of the peak he
wishes to storm and, as a rule, begins
his ascent at a high altitude. On Mount
McKinley, as described by a writer in
Outing, it is the opposite. There are
twenty-five miles of rugged foothills
and glaciers to be crossed-with heavy
packs-before the base of the mountain
is reached, and then the climber is con
fronted by 18,000 feet of rock and ice.

HABITS OF SPIDERS.
"Do These Insects Sleep?" Is Not an
Easy Question to Answer.
The question. "Do spiders sleep at
night?" Is not easy to answer. I have
made a careful observation of the sleep
of auts, and that could readily be done
by watching colonies in their artificial
formnicaries. It is almost impossible
to deal with spiders in the same way.
I would answer, however, in general
teris that spiders sleep, as all animals
do, and doubtless parts of the night
are spent In slumber. Many species,
however, prey on the night flying in
sects, and so must be awake in order
to catch their prey. If you will watch
the porch or outbuildings of your home
on a summer evening you wili be likely
to see an orb weaving spider drop
slowly down on a single thread in the
gathering dusk of the evening. From
this beginning a round web will soon
be spun, and either hanging at the
center thereof or in a little nest above
and -%t one side is the architect, with
forefeet clasping what we call the
"trap line" and waiting for some night
fying insect to strike the snare. In
this position spiders will sometimes
wait for hours, and it is just possible
that they may then take a little nap.
They might easily do that and yet not
lose their game, for the agitation of the
web would rouse the sleeper, and then
it would run down the trap line and se
cure its prey. Some species of spiders
do the chief part of their hunting at
night, and there are some who chiefly
hunt during the day; but, as a rule,
these industrious animals work both
day and night.-St. Nicholas.
Suffered For His Chickens.
In London as far back as 1791 a city
ordinance was passed to suppress the
early morning cries of the street huck
sters. This law was so severe that a
person arrested twice for the same of
fense could be imprisoned for ten
years. There is one record of a man
lingering in prison for ten years.
When his time was up he was asked
what his crime was.
"For selling chickens that squawk
ed," was the reply.
In the confusion of the trial the fac*
was not brought out that the chickens
and not the man' were responsible
for the din that aroused the wrath of
the disturbed citizens.
The Paper Told the Tale
A certain Greek adventurer some
years ago undertook to palm off upon
the public some false copies of the
gospel manuscripts. Many learned men
were deceived, but not Dr. Coxe, libra
rian of the Bodleian library at Oxford.
How he detected the fraud was related
in his own words In the Spectator:
I never really opened the book, but
I held it in my hand and took one page
of it between my finger and thumb
while I listened to the rascal's account
of how he found this most Interesting
antiquity. At the end of three or four
minutes I handed it back to him with
the short comment, "Nineteenth cen
tury paper, my dear sir." and he took
it away in. a hurry and did not come
again. Yes, I was pleased, but I have
handled several ancient manuscripts
in my time, and I know the feel of old

THE SHIP'S RUDDER.
Difference In the $train That Comes
Upon Its Two Parts.
The rudder of a wooden ship is com

which are so joined together as to
form in effect a single piece. The
complete rudder is coppered to protect
It from worms, and then, besides being
practically all in one piece. It has that
The stalk is the part to which are at
tached the piutles, or pivots, by which
the rudder is suspended and held in
place, these going through eyes set in
the ship's sternpost. The stalk runs up
through the stern of the ship, and to
its head is bolted a cap to which are at
tached the ropes by means of which the
rudder is controlled. The backing is the
blade part of the rudder.
By far the greater strain comes on
the stalk, and the greatest.strain of all
comes on the head of the stalk, the
rudder head, where it is held. The
stalk is made of the wood most likely
to stand the strain, carefully selected,
sound, well seasoned oak, while the
backing is made of spruce or hard pine.
The stalk is of a single, solid, massive
piece, stout as an oak tree and indeed
of the dimensions of a small oak, some
thing that a man can pin his faith to,
If he can have faith in any wood, while
the backing or blade is, like many mod
ern wooden masts, built up. It would
be difficult if not impossible to find
trees that would yield planks big
enough for the purpose in a single
piece, and the built up backing, made
of pieces of selected wood, can easily
be made of ample strength to with
stand any strain that will be brought
As to the staic, stout and solid as the
oak may be, the head may be,twisted
by the force of a tremendous blow from
a wave upon the rudder, or, under the
repeated strains of long use, the head
may split and so make the stalk use
less. Then the rudder is tak - o -t and
fitted with a new stalk. .cable
stick is selected and worken. ,wn to
the proper size and form, and very
probably the old backing is attached to
it. The life of a rudder stalk would
probably be twelve to fourteen years.
The backing might last as long as the
ship.-New York Sun.

The Danger of Soap.
When a man goes to some thermal
springs to "boil out" all the old Satan
that is in him he quickly learns one of
the more important lessons of life and
clvilizatioui-that is. he :acquires a su
premie eonteipt for soap. When he
takes his first tub. at 9f0 1o 102 degrees,
twenty minutes in the water to soak,
the attendant gives him a terrible
'cruhbing,. using a sharp soal> and a
toofa. After that first bath u-) more
soap is used. The man continues to
soak daily iir water of the s:ute tem
perature for twenty minutes and is
rubbed with the loofa, but no soap.
"Soap," the expert attendant will tell
you, "clogs up the pores of the skin.
Our object Is to keep 'em open. We
cure all diseases by giving the pores
a chance to breathe and ex' rete."

Grotesque Spanish Honor.
There is a story about the Duke of
Wellington that illustrates the fantas
tic idea of honor held by many Span
iards, contrasted with the practical
common sense of Englishmen. When
the duke was co-operating with the
Spanish army in the peninsula against
Napoleon he was desirous on one oc
easion during a general engagement
that the general commanding the
Spanish contingent should execute a
certain movement on the field. He
coimunicated the wish to the Span
lard personally and was somewhat
taken aback to be told that the honor
of the king of Spain and his army
would compel him to refuse the re
quest unless Wellington. as a foreign
officer graciously permitted to exist
and fight on Spanish soil, should pre
sent the petition on his knees. The old
duke often used to tell the story after
ward, and he would say, "Now, I was
extremely anxious to have the move
ment executed, and I didn't care a
'twopenny damn' about getting on my
knees, so down I jumped!"
A Dog and His Name.
"There .was a dog case which ex
cited much attention in Berlin some
years ago," said a former resident of
that city. "A citizen complained to
the authorities against a neighbor
who, he said, to annoy him, gave his
name to a mongrel cur. 'He calls my
name,' he said. 'and- when I turn
around he laughs and says he was
calling his dog.'
""What's your name?' asked the
"'My name is Schulz.'
"'And do you call the dog Schultz?
he asked the other man.
"'Yes, your honor, but I spell it with
"'Call him without the T,' com
manded the magistrate, trying to look
serious. The man did so, the dog came
to him and an order to change the
name or be fined followed."
The Water Bottle's Shape.
Three useful purposes-and probably
many more than three-are served by
making the familiar water bottle of
such a distinctive pattern. In the first
place the narrowness of the neck pre
vents the entry of much dust that
would inevitably settle on the water
were the entire surface exposed; in the
next place the same narrowness pre
vents excessive and rapid evaporation
of the water. and in the third place the
shape of the neck makes it a capital
landie, thus doiug away with the ne
essity for a separate handle fastened
to the body of the bottle, a course th.t
would render it much less convenient
and more liable to be broken.--Pear

the elephants, calfskin for the horse
and goatskin for the camels. This
covering must of course fit without
a wrinkle to look natural, so the wood
en model is first dipped into glue, then
sprinkled with chalk dust; then the
skin is put on. The chalk is so fine
that it fills the air and is drawn into
the throat and lungs. A year of this
sort of work often results in death.
Another very injurious toy is the rub
ber balloon. The fumes and solvents
used in reducing sheet rubber to the
necessary thinness while retaining its
strength and the dyeing of the' bril
liant yellows, greens and purple are
most of them poisonous.
"Health Coffee" is really the closest
coffee imitation ever yet produced.
This, the finest coffee substitute ever
made, has recently been produced by
Dr. Shoop of Racine, Wis. Not a grain
of real coffee in it either. Health cof
I fee is made from pure toasted cereals,
with malt, ;uts, etc. Really it would
fool an expert-who might drink it for
coffee. No twenty or thirty minutes
boiling. "Made in a minute" says the
doctor. Manning Grocery Co.
In Past Ages It Played a Very Im
.portant Part In Life.
Many odd notions still exist as to
sneezing, and some persons may be
heard to exclaim "Bless, my soul,
once!" "Bless my soul, twice!" and so
on after each sneeze. But in past
ages the sneeze really played a 'very
In ancient Greece the people saluted
each other whenever any one present
chanced to sneeze. As Xenophon was
addressing the Greek army in a mo
ment of defeat on a historical occa*
sion a soldier sneezed. The lines of
battle were formed at once, for the
sneeze was deemed a good omen, and
the Greeks were successful.
Among the Hebrew's when a person
sneezed the bystanders would say,
"Tobinz chailm"--"A long life to you.
In India criminals on the rack of tor
ture have saved their own lives by
A humorous story about sneezing is
told in that wondei'ful collection of
oddities, "The Arabian Nights." A
schoolmaster was particular in teach'
ug his pupils the value of politeness.
He also told them that whenever he
sneezed tthey should clap their hands
and say, "Long live our noble master.'
One day master and pupils went out
for a stroll. The air was hot, and alJ
soon 'grew very thirsty. Great was
their joy at last to find a well. But
the bucket was at the bottom of the
well, and so the schoolmaster went
down to bring it up. The boys seized
the rope and tugged for dear life. Just
as the schoolmaster reached the top ol
the well he sneezed. The boys let go
the rope and clapped their hands, shout'
ing, '"Long live our noble master!"
As for the poor schoolmaster, he fell
to the bottom of the well, where hE
may be to this day, for all one knows
Blunders of the Types.
An author who has a scrapbook de
voted to typographical errors was
showing the articles to a friend.
One item concerned a dance. The
word "bonnier" was misprinted, with
this deplorable result: "There wer'e nou
bonier ladies present than the in nr's
own daughters, and this fact wVas fur
ther emphasized by the perfect iut of
the shepherdess costumes they wore."
A country paper, after telling how a
cow got in front of a train, said, "'As
the safest course under the circumi
stances the engineer put on full steam,
dashed into the cow and literally cut it
into two calves-"
A New York society editor, misprint
ug the word "chill," published this
statement: "Mrs. Astor was unavoid'a
bly absent from the reception, being
kept at home by a bad child."
"Steward, how long will it be before
we get into the harbory'
"About an hour and a half, ma'am."
"O, dear, I shall dio before then."
"Very likely. ma'am. But you'll be
all right again when you've been on
shore ten minutes."-Marinle Journal.
