NOT WORTH THE CANDLE.
The tendency mentioned in these
notes some little time ago of an over
taxing of immature girls in school as
a result of too much study and too
little recreation and exercise was
brought to our notice the other day.
A. fine little lady of sixteen had taken
an auto trip from a nearby town, yet
notwithstanding the trip was in the
nature of an outing she was in a hur
ry to get back so that she could study
two hours that night. On inquiry we
found it to be the old, old story of
two bright, intelligent girls, in the
same class and of about the same age.
who stood neck and neck in their
grades, each being possessed with the
desire to excel the other. When we
asked the girl in question if her
brother ever brought his books home
to study she replied, "Yes, but that is
all it amounts to, for he seldom opens
them." This in a nutshell explains
the difference between boys and girls,
and it Is a fact that thoughtful parents
ought to take into account. However.
In all too many instances parents are
shortsighted and, instead of discourag
Ing overstudy on the part of their am
bitious daughters, take a keen interest
in their study rivalry and encourage
and urge them on to still greater ef
jort. Sometimes her constitution is
Wtrong enough so that the immature
girl finishes her high school and per
haps a college course. but at the end
of that time she is all too often done
for-a wreck physically and spent
nervously, when these powers should
have been so guarded that she would
be strong and vigorous and able to
meet the duties and responsibilites of
living. instead of being a broken (Lown.
miserable invalid. The pupil herself
should try to look this situation
squarely In the face, and if she does
not possess that maturity of judgment
which will enable her to take the right
course she should be assisted by both
parents and teachers. This wanton
sacrifice of health and vital force to
secure grades that will only adorn the
pages of musty school records is a
travesty on education and an insult
to the Giver of life. It Is a species
of rivalry in which the sacrifice en.
tailed is too great and in which the
game Is not worth the candla.
Where there are no trees in the pas
ture which will furnish ample shade
for the stock during the heated months
of the summer some kind of shelter
Aho'uld be provided, If nothing more
than a shed made of poles and thatch
ed with straw or old hay. A number
of instances were reported during July
of last year where many head of cat
tle died from the heat, being found
plij up in a seeming attempt to gain
ths-shelter of a little patch of shade.
That tuberculosis can be transmitted
from cattle to hogs has been quite
forcefully demonstrated in some ex
periments which have lately been con
ducted by the Iowa animal husbandry
department. Out of twenty-eight
healthy pigs which were kept in a
pasture three months to clean up after
a car load of cows affected with tuber
culosis twenty-two showed unmistak
able lesions of the disease when
slaughtered a short time after removal
from the feed lot.
While it Isn't so necessary as in the
case of a small plant or shru, the
good sized shade tree will make a more
thrifty growth If the soil Is spaded
and mellowed up a few feet about the
roots. We saw this fact nicely proved
one day last fall in the case of two
white oaks eighteen inches In diameter,
one in a cultivated garden patch and
the other but a couple of rods distant
in a dry, hard packed pasture. The
first had thr'Jfty, glossy leaves, with
a foot and a half of new growth.
while the second had a decidedly jaden
and drought stricken appearance. It
was a forceful object lesson and indi
cated a fact too often overlooked,
A Royal Superstition.
Canterbury cathedral, England, like
most Catholic cathedrals, Is decorated
with Innumerable niches for statues.
At Canterbury a series of these niches
is occupied with statues of k-tngs and
queens of England, and there are only
four niches left unoccupied. An old
tradition has It that when all the
niches are filled the throne of England
will come to an end. Queen Victoria
was approached with a view to a
statue of herself being placed In one
of the four remaining niches, but her
late majesty was aware of the old tra
dition and refused. One wonders
whether in the future there will be
four monarchs of England sufficiently
Indifferent to superstition to defy the
t-adition and allow their effigies to
fill the unoccupied spaces.
Rabbits and SquIrrels as Swimmers,
A funny though able swimmer is the
rabbit He submerges his body with
the exception of head and tall. The
latter sticks away up Into the air, and
his hind legs make "soap suds" as he
churns the water madly to get away.
But with all his awkwardness he Is a
swift swimmer and is only beaten by
the squirrel among the land anImals.
The squirrel swims with his heavy
tail sunk away diown in the water and
his head held high. He cleaves the
waves like a duck, and a man In a
rowboat has all he can do to keep
abreast of the swimming squirrel.

Many Friends, at T
Real Angel of Death.
i Most of us are familiar with the
beautiful and artistic conception of
French wherein a young sculptor who
is plying his magic chisel upon a block
of stone and summoning from the
snowy depths of the marble the dream
face of his soul's ideal is gently touch
ed by the wistful eyed angel of death
and tlie skillful arm forever stayed.
The whole creation is marvelously
beautiful, and the world Is better for
its birth. Nevertheless it is allegorical
and misleading. The real angel of
death in the case of the thin faced
sculptor was not a sad visaged maiden
of classical profile. In all probability
it was a minute, rodlike organism float
ing amid motes of dust and known to
scientists as the "bacillus tuberculo
sis." The writer does not want to be
a shatterer of ideals, but the sooner
such poetic notions of death are done
away with and the mass of the people
educated in a common sense way to
the dangers of dust and bacteria the
better it will be for humanity in gen
eral.-3. G. Ogden in Popular -Mechan
A Wonderful Machine.
The machine by which railway tick

Intelligence or what looks very like it
Railway tickets are not, as might be
supposed, printed in large sheets and
Iafterward cut up. The cardboard is
cut into tickets first and printed one
by one afterward. The little blank
cards are put in a pile in a kind of
perpendicular spout, and the machine
slips a bit of metal underneath the
bottom of the spout and pushes out
the lowest ticket In the pile to be
printed and consecutively numbered.
It Is of no use trying to print a bad
ticket. The machine finds out an Im
perfect blank in an instant and flatly
refuses to have anything to do with it
Tear off the corner of one of the bits
of card and put it into the spout with
the others in order to see what wil]
happen and It refuses to budge again
until somebody comes and removes
the impostor. Pull out the damaged
ticket and the mechanism will sel
briskly to work again.-PhladelphiaS
When Woemen Carved.
In George I.'s reign it was the bound
en duty of the mistress of a country
house to carve for her guests. Eti
quette demanded It of her. and no one
might relieve her of her arduous task,
not even the master. To the latter was
only assigned the easy labor of passing
the bottle and looking on while each
foint was placed in turn before hi;
wife or daughter, as the case might be
and by her rapidly manipulated. Carv
ug became one of the branches of s
good feminine education, and there
were professional carving masters wh<
taught the young ladles. Lady Miary
Wortley Montagu took lessons In the
art three times a week and on he2
father's public days made a practice
of having her own dinner an hour oi
two beforehand. A guest who did noi
receive his portion from his hostess
own fair hands would have consider

I Peacocks' Feathers.
Peacocks' feathers have been hande
down to us from the ancient days c
mtooyas emblematical of treacd

of this strange superstition is founde
upon the following classical story
Osiris, king of Egypt, upon starting o:
his Indian expedition left his queer
Isis, regent, with Argus, his mlnlstei
as her chief adviser. Argus, with hi
hundred eyes, or, rather, his spies, soo:
made himself so formidable and powet
ful that he seized the queen regeni
shut her up in a strong castle and prt
claimed himself king of Egypt. Met
cury was sent against him with
strong army, took him captive and en
off his head, whereupon Juno met
morphosed him Into a peacock and se
his spies in his tall. From this legen
and the various additions made to I
from time to time the belief has arise
that It is unlucky to have peacoela
feathers inside a house.

sowed that a two pfennig piece could.
of course, be changed but once and a
Ave pfennig piece only three times and
a ten pfennig only fve times. The rise
begins with the twenty-five pfennIg

and a mark-10 pfennigs-4,953 tnes.
The big figures come with the two mark

61,984 times; the three mark note 301,
550 times and five marks 5,229,221

in 33,230,24852 ways. Allowing thfr

it would requIre 135 days 2 hours 17
