to give proof once a year that he was

Johann Gottlieb Fichte was one of
the greatest men of his day, one of the
reat men of all time. There is not
oom in this narrow space for a list
f his works; but one can get ' is
"Philosophy" and other works at any
public library. Fichte wrote not mere
ly fos his own day, but for all time,
and the trend of the world's thought
rght now is along the lines he jnarked
ut. It will pay any one to get ac
uainted with the great German's
Hamlet in South Africa.
It can h- .,Jly be expected that "post
Ipressiomism" will be confinied to pic
tures in the future. A friend writes
rom South Africa that some genius
ut there has done "Hamlet" in the
raal and quotes the following exam

post-im.pressionistic. Here it is:

Too Much for Mother.
A Pasadena boy asked his father
what was meant by the expression:
"the woman had a Greek profile."
The father put down the paper he was
reading and replied: ~"Why, It mere
y means a classic outline." The
mother took a hand, declaring the
answer was too short and really a
ifty euphemism. "Give our son a
og and clear answer," she insisted.

As a funished product, the gentleman
seems to do everything very easily;
but that ease like the case of the habit,
can only come by effort. He is socially'
secure; but whatever his station, he
was not born so, for no man ever is
socially secure by birth, even if he
was born to be a king. The test of a
gentleman is the pleasre others take
in his society, and not In his wit or his
virtue of his learning, but in their or
dinary social relations with him. And
this pleasure he cannot give merely
by being on good terms with himself.

Atavism In Dogs.
Dogs, probably the earliest of. do.
mesticated animals, when transferred
to a tropical country, such as central
Africa, lose in a few generations most
of the characteristics they have ac
quired In Europe, and revert more and
more to the type of the jackal and the
wolf. Then their ears, whatever their
breed, tend to become pointed, their
coats turm sandy or rufous and their
bark becomes a howl. Some attempt
has been made to show that this is the
result of disease and resembles the
effect of-malaria on the human consti
tution. Yet the Egyptian dog of Phar
aonic times possessed, as is seen by
the monuments, these very character
istics; and as he was certainly domes
ticated before the European animal,
it is probable that these are original
teatures of the race.

Safety Engineering has this to say
about the wearing of goggles by in

injuries to the eyes of industrIal work

importance-to provide the goggle

overlooked that not only must the
lenses be best suited to meet the con

not occasion discomfort. If the -gog

he is apt to remove it, :nd many eyes
