- Early Combines and Corners.
"Engrossing" was an offense punish
able in England by fine and imprison
mnent, and the la ws against it struck at
those-called "engrossers"-wbc' plan
ned to gain control over necessities.
such as grain or foodstuffs in consid
erable quantities. either by purchnse or
otherwise, with the intention of raising
prices. The statute book holds quite a
series- ot enactments designed to pre
vent anything in the nature of what
we know as a -corner" or "combine."
"Regrating" was a criminal offense.
*and so was "forestalling." The former
consisted of buying and selling tbe
same day in the same market or near
it; and the latter impled the purchase
of merchandise on the way to market
or before the hour at which the market
commenced with the intention of sell
ing at a profit, while it was 'also "fore
stalling" to circulate rumors calculated
to raise the prices of commodities.
Though these laws have fallen into
desuetude, they were in .force in our
grandfathers' time.-London Mail.
He Let Her Sleep.
Some years ago a Swansea vessel
was caught in a terrible gale. Trhe
captain had his wife on board. and
when the wind was still rising he told
her to go down below and sleep. for
all was well. He remained on the
bridge till the mate came up nr'cl said:
"We've done all we can. Hadn't you
better tell the chaps to g.et out the
"Yes. yes. my lad, if you think so."
said the captain. who knew the only
choice left was whether to go down
with tbe ship or in a small boat. w trich
conldnt live ten seconds in thatr sea.
The engineers came up with the news
that the fires were all out. -Very
well, my lads." said the captain quiet
ly; "save yourselves if you can."
"Won't you fetch the wife on de'k.
sr?' asked one of the men.
"No." was the calm reply; "let her
sleep, poor old girl. I am going down
to have a smoke." And. smoking by
Sthe bedside ot his sleeping wife. he
went down with the ship.
There are Egyptian maps dating
from 1400 B. C.. but in spite of this
long history it has been astonishingly
difcult to make progress in chnrts
until very recent times. Errors ar'e

Speakinug of the necessity for wide
spread education in first aid to th
injured, the St. Louis Times says:
"Perhaps it will not be taken amis:
if we call attention to the obvious fac
that nine-tenths of all the trouble ii
the world is due to ignorance of cer
tain simple things. It might even bi
said safely that all mishaps of what
ever kind-mental, physical and spirit
nal-are due to a want of experienc4
and training. Accidents of a thou
sand varieties, from drowning to th4
taking of a dose from the wrong bot
tie, are in a majority of cases fata
simply because there was not presen
some one who knew what to do. In
juries which almost tear the body t<
pieces are curable if the man of train
Ing and experience is at hand. Th<
simplest injuries ofte~n prove fata
when they are not properly attende(
to, when the injured person does noi
get the benetit of a little simple help.'

When the World Was Drunk.
Nowhere in all the world today cat
be found as many confirmed drunk
ards as there were among the Thra
clans. the iberians, the Celts or th4
Scythians. The man who didn't ge
drunk every day or two was regarde
as queer. The Greeks wecre modera t<
drinkers until they began to copy th<
luxury of the Persian feasts. The Ro
mans imitated the Greeks. Then th<
whole worid went on a mad drunk. I
was a saturnalia. Caligula owes hiL

Shokels and Half Shekels.
The early Biblical references t<
pieces of silver do not in the origina

as equal to four Athenian dra'hmae o:
the value ot' about 5 cents in Amern
