Miss the Easy Road.
Two young exponents of the strenu
ous life on Broadway were sitting in a
hotel lobby the other evening discuss
ing their plans for making some "big
money" in the future. One of them
confessed that his salary was "only
$45 a week," and he was having a hard
time of it in keeping the wolf from the
door. Sitting near them was an old
gentleman who overheard their conver
sation and was evidently interested.
"You fellows are making the mistake
of your lives," the old gentleman said
at last. "You are chasing the will o'
the wisp while you have the means of
wealth within your grasp. Why, I'm
considered pretty well off financially,
as you both know, and I never re
ceived a salary of $45 a week in my
life. But I saved money when I was
your age, and I found opportunities for
Investment that soon put me out of the
salary class and made me a business
man on my own account The trouble
with young fellows nowadays is that
they can't see the opportunities that
are given them. They have their eyes
glued to the get-rich-quick idea so tight
ly that they pass by the only sure route
to wealth."-New York Globe.
As a rule, clear handwriting is more
common with persons who do not write
for a living than with those who do.
Authors, for example, are creating
something when they write; their mind
is concentrated on this creative work;
their thoughts are generally ahead of
their hand, sometimes a whole sen
tence, and they hurry to keep pace
with them. The result is bad hand
writing, but handwriting with individ
uality in it, if not character. There is
a theory that plain writing is most
easily forged. This is not true. Ob
scure signatures are most easily forged
and the so called freak signatures,
which nobody can read, eaefest of all.
The best signature and the safest for
a man who signs checks is neither too
prim nor too involved; just plain, ev
eryday writing, done in the easiest
way, according to his temperament.
Such a signature expresses as much
character as any handwriting can, but
It doesn't tell us a thing about the
man's moral makeup; not a thing.
Wanted His Dues.
A reservation Indian was disconso
late over the breaking of his ax handle.
He laid his misfortune before the
"farmer" of the reservation, who,
through pity, took a new handle from
his private stock and adjusted it to the
ax. The farmer then noticed that the
ax was shockingly dull. So, motioning
the owner to turn the grindstone, he
expended a half hour's time in sharp
ening the blade. When the rehablli
tated ax was given to the Indian he
was childishly gleeful, but still lingered
about, Indicating by his actions that
some feature of the transaction had not

-There was a hopeful gleam in the
eyes of the young man with a slightly

A Poet's Slip.
A correspondent of London Notes and
Queries has "caught out" Mr. Kipling
In an extraordinary blunder. He finds
It in the "Last Chantey" in these lines:
Then said the souls of the slaves that
men threw overboard:
"Kenneled in the picaroon a weary band
But thy arm was strong to save,
And it touched us on the wave,
And we drowsed the long tides Idle till(
thy trumpets tore the sea."
"Of course," says the commentator,1
"the word Kipling meant to use was1
barracoon, the technical term for a:
slave pen. Picaroon means a rogue." 1
Catching a Cobra.
A driver on the Avontuur railway,
South Africa, while staying at the
Gamtoos caught a large cobra de ca
pello alive. The cool way in which he
did the trick, says a local paper, sent a
cold shiver through every one who saw
it. He simply caught hold of the point
of Its tail, gave it a sudden jerk toward
him and caught It by the back of the
head. He then placed it in a biscuit
tin. The snake was three inches in
diameter and about four feet long. 1

A Fish Mystery.
One strange feature of this sea life
of the tropics is the regular recurrence
of migratory swarms of fish of very
small size that return in huge numbers
year after year with such absolute reg
ularity that the natives calculate on
the event on a certain day in each year
and even within an hour or two of the
day. One such swarm of fish forms
the occasion of an annual holiday and
feast at Samoa. The fish is not unlike
the whitebait for which the English
Thames has so long been celebrated,
and each year it arrives at Samoa on
the same day in the month of October,
remains for a day or at the most two
days and then disappears entirely till
the same day of the following year.
Why it comes or whence no curious
naturalist has yet discovered, nor has
anybody traced its onward course when
it leaves the Samoan group, but the
fact is unquestionable that suddenly,
without notice, the still waters of the
lagoon which surround each island
within the fringing reef become alive
with millions of fishes passing through
them for a single day and night and
then disappearing for a year as though
they had never come.-London Stand
The history of Armenia is not cheer
ful reading. With the exception of oc
rasional brief periods, the Armenians
have been almost continually under
some foreign rule. Assyrians, Babylo
aans, Medes, Persians, Macedonians,
Romans, Parthians, Saracens, Mongols
nd Turks have each in turn dominated
the country, and of all these successive
loreign yokes the present one, that of
the Turks, has been the longest and
the heaviest. The highest activities of
the Armenian people today are not to
be found in Armenia proper, but rather
in the marts of prominent cities the
world over. This is especially notice
ble in Constantinople, Smyrna and
ther cities of the Levant, where the
arked aptitude of the Armenian in
business enables him practically to
lominate the commercial situation.
)ne example is the oriental rug trade,
wvhich is practically controlled by Ar
nenians not only in the east itself, but
tiso in many western countries.-Argo

The accordion, which was a develop

The concertina proper was Invented on

who later became a famous man of

whose reputation rests chiefy on his
electrical work and discoveries, who
was one of the earliest men of science
to make experiments in connection
with submarine cables and who, more
over, was an extraordinarily skillful
decipherer of cryptographic writings,
should also have dabbled in musical
inventions. But, as a matter of fact,
Wheatstone's musical work preceded
his scientific discoveries. He went
straight from school to the business of
I manufacturing musical instruments,
and it was in 1S29, at the age of twen
ty-seven, that he took out his patent
for the concertina. But he was more
Interested In the scientific principles
on which musical instruments are con

acoustical and musical experiments
soon drew him into the path which led
to his many electrical discoveries.

Cage For a Queen Bee.
When a queen bee becomes unpro
ductive through old age, it is necessary
for the bee keeper to supply the colony
of bees with a new queen. This he
does in the following manner: The old
queen is removed from the hive and
the bees are left alone for about twelve
hours or longer, during which time
they find out that they are queenless.
The new queen is then put Into a cage
made of wood and wire cloth, with an
opening through one end. This open
ing is filled tight with a mixture of
honey and sugar. The cage thus pre
pared is laid upon the tops of the
frames in the hive. The bees soon dis
cover the new queen in the cage and
set to work upon the honey and sugar.
In the hive bees recognize friends and
strangers L. their sense of smell, and
a strange queen entering a hive would
be very quickly killed by the bees. By
the time the queen is liberated from
the cage she has acquired the scent of
the hive and is therefore no longer a
