A QUEER VIEW OF NEW YORK.
Its Deliatessen Life as an Englishmar
You have to pay 10 cents in Nev
York for a chicken sandwich. and then
it is usually made of turkey. You pa.,
5 cents for a han sandwich. and the.;
you have no idea what it is made of
1 snas in the delicatessen trade in Ne"
Yoik for three weeks. and I have m.
suspicions. For 25 cents you can have
a club sandwich. That is made of toast
and chicken-turkey and bacon. all hot
and very good. It is well worth the
extra expense, because the smell of
the bacon disguises that of the chicken.
American bacon is not good. It is
nearly always sold in glass bottles. as
we sell jam, which prevents its getting
away. Personally I prefer Its flavor
to that of their chicken, because i was
in a hospital once, and I hate being re
minded of It.
There are as many delicatessen stores
in New York as there are wine shops
in Paris or tailors in the city of Lon
don. To millions of good New Yorkers
the most dazzling .ind of orgy is to
spend the evenin; in a cinema theater.
which costs 5 cnts, and then go to a
delicatessen store and have a ham
sandwich. For the rest of the week
they live upon dill pickles. Dill pickles
are what tve call gherkins, and they
are far and away the most popular
article of food in New York. You can
get one for a cent. A really big and
juicy one, which will do you for break
fast, with a bit over for lunch, costs 2
cents. The people of New York are
simple and long suffering. The exist
ence of the delicatessen store is the
proof of it. In no other trade in the
world can you make so large a profit
with so little truth.-London Truth.

FEET USED TO BE LARGER.
A Modern No. 5 Shoe Would Have
Fitted an Ancient Grcek Belle.
Artists assure us that no Greek
sculptor would have ever dreamed of
putting a nine inch foot on a five and
ne-half foot woman. The types for
the classic marble figures were taken
from the most perfect forms of living
persons. Unquestionably the human
foot, as represented by the ancient
sculptors, was larger than the modern
ne; and, in fact, the primitive foot of
all peoples whereof we have any rec
rd, either of statuary or otherwise,
was considerably larger than the re
stricted Loot of later times.
The mascutine foot, forming an ap
proxmate average of four different
ountries, was about twelve inches
long. This would require at least' a
No. 10 shoe to cover it comfortabl'y.
The average masculine foot today Is
easily fitted with a No. S% shoe and is
therefore not above ten and seven-six
teenths inches. Now, by the old sculp
tural rule of proportion, a man five
feet nine inches in heIght should have

I saw c:ie :iout through a tarantula,
It was at :t s:iue camp in the old days,
and the camap bully had a tarantula im

from ,!w:" east stood gazing. fascinated
with hwrror. at the squirming reptile,

to rea' tl something that it could fasten
them into. Suddenly. without warning,
the bully thnust the tarantula strafght
into the tenderfoot's face. His whisk

let out a yell as if he had actually been
bitten and jumped back, I fully be
lieve. ten feet. Then, as the fellow
came poking the tarantula toward him
again, the tenderfoot drew his revolver
and turned loose on his tormentdr. His
first shot would have been enough, as
it went straight through the fellow's
body, but the tenderfoot had his ex

Why Chinese Shops Are Small.
The average Chinese shop of any
kind In Tientsin and Peking is a one
story building without doors or win
dows to the street. The entire front is
closed by shutters at night In the
day time the shutters are removed.
These shops are fourteen to sixteen
feet wide on the street, and the-room
is not deeper than this. Three or four
feet back from the front a counter
runs, behind which there is shelving.
The storerooms.are not deeper because
of the peculiar arrangement of Chinese
houses. The typical Chinese house is
only one story in height and is built
on all four sides of a square courtyard.
if .more room is needed there is a sec
ond courtyard in the rear with a com
municating door, and so on. The ya
mens or official residences of the va
rious Chinese officials- of Tientsin are
all. erected in this way-one courtyard
after another surrounded by buildings
all opening into the court.
- Opals and Ill Luck.
Many people regard the opal as an
omen of ill luck, and the -following
will show how this superstition arose.
Two or three centuries ago the stone
was very popular in Europe, and the
jewelers of Italy were especially cun
ning in its setting.- At the height of
its popularity came the plague which
wrought great havoc in Venice. It was
noticed by some observant persons in
that city tnat when a victim. was on
the point of death his opal, if he wore
one,- brightened, -while after death it
became dull. The reason of this was
the heightened fever made the stone
become hot. and consequently very
brililant, while after death the chill
and damp of the body dulled it It was
however declared by many that it
brought death and misfortune to their
door, and as this superstition spread
the sale of opals decreased, and to this
day people believe that the beautiful
stone brings ill luck..

GIFTS OF THE VIKING.

When we say a ship Is bound for a
ertain port or homeward bound, we
are using, not the past participle, as
we might think, of the English verb to
ind, but of a Scandinavian word
mening to prepare, to get ready--a
word which in the form of "boun"-still
ives on in northern dialects.
"Billow" is probably a Scandinavian
4vord which survived in one of the
orthern or eastern dialects, -which still
reserve so many Danish words. It
ade its way into southern English in
the sixteenth cefttury and was given
literary standing by its use by Spen
ser and Shakespeare.
"Wake" for the track of a ship is
nother Scandinavian word preserved
n dIalect. Its original meaning, as
rofessor Skeat tells us, was that of
n opening in the Ice, especially the
assage cut for a ship In a frozen lake
r sea, and then, from being applied
o the smooth watery track left by the
ship after its passage through the Ice,
it came to be used when there was no
ice at all. This useful word Is one of
the nautical terms which the French
ae borrowed from the English, al
though it is not easy to recognise it at
first in its French form of ouaiche, and

WHIRL OF THE WORLD.
hat Would Happen if We Crashed
Into Another World.
We are spinning through space at
the rate of more than a thousand miles
minute. What would happen were
we to meet another world moving at
the same speed?
In the first place, the heat generated
y the shock would be so great that
both worlds would be transformed into
igantic balls of vapor many times the
size of the earth today. This, however,
might not happen If the inside of the
earth is composed of solider and colder
matter than scientists believe It to be.
Although there Is small chance of
any such aerial collision taking place,
scientists have already calculated the
probable results fairly accurately. One
as expressed the amount of heat that
would be generated In this way. it
would be sufficient, he says, to melt,
boil and completely vaporize a mass of
Ice 700 times the bulk of both the col
iding worlds-an ice planet 150.000
miles in diameter.
Scientists have often considered the
possibility that the end of the earth
would come about in this way.
Certain it is that planets as great as
the earth have been destroyed by com.

Antoine Rivarol, the French epigram

so brilliant that something good was
expected of him every minute. Once
when he had been invited to dinner, at
which the hostess especially wished
him to shine, he sat quite silent. The
attitude of disappointed expectancy in
the company nettled him, and at last
Rivarol made a stupid remark. Every
body uttered an exclamation.

Life at Low Temperatures.
Most recent experiments show that
the idea that bacteria in general are
not harmed by freezing is untenable.
On the other hand, the effect of very
low temperatures has been greatly
overestimated. It has been observed
that as destructive effects are pro
duced upon bacterial life from the tem
perature of salt and pounded ice as
from that of liquid air. The critical
point appears to be somewhat about
the freezing point of water. An organ
ism that can pass this point in-safety
may be proof against even absolute
zero. A few individual bacteria in
every culture tried were able to endure
unharmed the temperature of - liquid
air. This is believed to have been due
to the absence of water in cells.-St.

AN EARLY-PARE. FOOD LAW.
English Bakers Had to Be-Care tt
the Old Days.
In the time of Edward L of England.
Innkeepers were not permitted to make
either bread or beer. The former they
were obliged by law to-buy from the
baker and the latter from ;the brewer.
In "Customs of Old England" F. J
Snell declares that if the -law defended
what was considered the legitimate
claim of the baker to a proper livel
hood it was equally solicitous for the
welfare of his customers and was most
severe upon the baker who-sold bread
deficient in weight or quality.
For the first offense he was drawn
on a hurdle through the -principal
streets, which would be thronged with
people and foul with traffic, with the
offending loaf suspended frin his neck.
From a pen and ink sketch of this cere-.
mony it appears that the unhappy
tradesman wore : neither -shoes nor;1
stockings and had his arms strapped.

Unique Signs In Franc.

"In France;" he said, "at the et~'ance

me delightful In spirit. Over the road
as you enter the town limits is an arch

town, the number of the road-for all
the roads are numbered in France-and
the name of the department in which

then as you leave the town you see-the
