Origin of Confetti.
The history of confetti is rather curt
ous. Several years a;:o a large print
lng works In Paris was turning out in
mense quantt't of calendars. through
which a smnai. round bole had been
punched to receive an eyelet for hold
lng the sheen together. A heap of the
little circular scraps of paper cut out,
by the punch accumulated on a taible.
and one of the machine men amused
himself by scattering a handful of
them over a working girl's hair. She
Immnediately snatched up a handful
and threw them In his face. Other
girls followed her example, and the
first confetti battle began. The head
of the establishment came in when It
was at its height. and. being what the
Americans call a -smart man." he at
once relied that there was -money:
in it." He ordered special machinery.
placed large quantities of the new ar
ticle on the market, made a fortune
and created a new Industry.
The Ways uf MVoles.
Among common animalis few hare
been less studied in their life history
than the mole. An English natural
Ist. Mr. Lionel E. Adams, says that
under the "fortress- which the mole
constructs above the surface of the~
ground will always he found a series.
of tunnels running out beneath the
adjacent ield. A curious feature al
mnost invariably found Is a perpendic
ular run penetrating about a foot be
3ow the bottom of' the nest and then
turning upward to meet another run.
A mole is never found in his nest. al
though It may be yet warm from his
body when opened. Guided by smne!!
and hearing. a mole frequently locates
the nest of a partridge or pheasant
above his run and, penetrating it from
below, eats the eggs. The aduit mole

An Arab Legend
"There Is none so poor but there is
A poor Arab spent his last barn on a
handful of dates and went up on a:
high cliff to eat them and die. As he
threw the stones over a lean hand
shot out be~tow and caught them.
"Ho!" salO he. "why do you catch:
my date stonesr
-Because. 0 brother." answered a
weak voice. -1 have not eaten these
three days. and Allah has sent these
atones to save my life."
"Praise be to Allah."' answered the~
first man. "for he has~ saved me also.!
for here is one poorer than 1."
And both men went Into the city.
First Test of the Air Pump.
The first public test of the air pump;

Th!s idea is not cotnned to ':viii-3
races. Among the Zulusz the spirit is

When they see the shadow of a :nan

which Is meant when it is said. 'The

Identification of the shadow in any
mysterious or spiritual way with the
person whose body casts it. nat.:rnly r
leads to respect for the strange second C
se'. To tread on the shadow of a
hief is an insult to the chief himself.
In the Institutes of Manu. the ancient
Eindu law giver, the law runs:
"Let him not intentionalty pass over
the shadow of sacred images. of a
natural or spiritual father. of a king.
of a Brahmin who keep's house. or of
any reverend personage. nor of one
who has just performed a sacrifice."
There are traces of the sur-ival of
these primitive ways of regarding a
man's shadow In the English country
feeling that It is unlucky to cross the
path o: a newly married man as he a
leaves the altar; and in another rural
belief that tr is unlucky to cross th'e
path of horses ploughing when the sun
s shining behind them.
Association between shadows and
mirrored representations of the human a
form is obviously natural. so it is not
surprising to find superstitions about it
the shadow mingled with widely scat- ]
tered versions of the Narclssus legend.
The story of the beautiful youth who
became enamored of his own image.
as he saw It represented in the water.
and languished thereafter till he died. e
has its origin In the belief that trouble t
follows from beholding the w.atery
"Let him not look at his own image.
Inwater; that is a settled rule." com-,
ands Manu. the mindu law giver. a1
The reason for the prohibition is to .
e found in the beliefs of man In a
primitive state of civilization. The
kelanesazi of the Pacific. says a
learned observer, say: "There Is a
s~tream in Saddle island, or, rather, a.
pool in a stream, Into which If any -
ne looks he dies; the malignant spirit
takes hold upon his life by means of
his redlection In the water." Some
such Idea as this was probably the*
root of the Narcissus legend.
The Zulus excplain why It is Ill to
look Into the water of a pool by a story
of a great beast in the water which
can seize the shadow of a man and
when his shadow is gone a man no.
longer wishes to turn back. but de

dies, and Is eaten by the great beast
which inhabIts It. So. says Blizbor .
Tallaway. -men are forbidden to Iea

There are other ways in whicha
