Antiquity of the Saw.
The saw is the earliest tool that has
been traced In Egyptian history. It
was found first in the form of a notch
ed bronze knife in the third dynasty,
or about 5,000 years before the Chris
tian era, and was followed in the fourth
and fifth dynasties by larger toothed
saws, which were used by carpenters.
but there are no dated specimens until
the seventh century before the Chris
tian era, when the Assyrians used iron
saws. The first knives on record were
made out of flint and were in fact
saws with minute teeth. They prob
ably were used for cutting up animals,
as the teeth would break away even
on soft wood. Rasps, which are but a
form of saw. were first made of sheets
of bronze, punched and coiled round,
but the Assyrians In the seventh cen
tury used the straight rasp made of
iroui similar to the modern type. In
the present day the saw is probably
used more than any other tool. It has
taken three distinct forms for the
working of both wood and met'l-the
straight saw, the band saw and the
Of all the wild fowl family the can

less it be by that of the redhead,
and the extremely high price : of It
shows how precious and rare it has
become. Not many years ago there
was little difficulty in procuring a good
bag of this bird on the shores of the
Chesapeake, where it feeds upon the
wild celery that gives distinction to Its
flesh. Today the canvasback is a rara
avis. indeed. It is going the way of all
flesh, only faster than most, and its
disappearance will be. unlike that of
the dodo, a 'gustatory calamity. Its
funeral procession follows close upon
the obsequies of the prairie hen and

A Very Lucky Smoke.
A curious story comes from Vienna.
A young man, the representative of a
famous firm, who carried a large sum
of money with him, spent the night at
a hotel at Pressburg. According to his
usual custom, he remained some time
smoking in bed. Suddenly the burn
ing cigar fell to the foor. He bent
over to extinguish it when he saw a
hand project from under the bed and
put out the fre. It made him very
uncomfortable, and he lay for fifteen
minutes thinking. Then he said aloud:
"How very cold it isl I must gety my
fur coat." Jumping out of bed, he ran
to the.door, opened It and shouted for
help, and the robber was caught. He
confessed his crime and then added
that he had been a fireman formerly
and culd not resist the impulse to ex
tinguish the burning cigar.
