THE ROPES OF MAUI.
An Ancient Legend of the Sun Frori
the South Seas.
One of the most picturesque legend
connected with the solar beams is tha
told in the islands of the south Pacific
where sunbeams are known as "th
ropes of MauL" It is related that ii
former times the sun god Ra was no
so regular in his habits fis he is today
In fact, he caused the south sea island
ers much annoyance by setting in th,
morning or at noon or at other inol
portune timos, just when his light wa:
needed for the daily tasks of mankind
The great hero Maui undertook t
cure him of these .:.atic habits. an
the first step was to make the sun got
prisoner. This was accomplished b:
laying a series of six snqares made 6
strong cocoanut fiber along the sun'
path in the sky. When the deity nex
rost from Avaiki, or the land of ghosts
the first noose encircled him, but slip
ped down and only caught his feet; thi
second slipped, too, but caught the sur
god's knees; the third caught aroun
Still Ra pressed on, scarcely ham
pered by these contrivances. Thi
fourth noose tightened around hi
waist, the fifth under his arms, anm
finally the sixth and last caught hin
around the neck and almost strangle
him. Then the sun god confessed him
self vanquished and in fear of his 1ff
promised Maui that he would in futur(
adjust his daily journeys more in ac
cordance with the comfort and conven
lence of mortal men.
Ra was then allowed to proceed ox
his way, but Maui prudently declined
to take off the ropes, which may stil
be seen hanging from the sun at dawz
and when he descends into the ocear
at night. Hence the islanders say, whei
they behold'the beams radiating frozz
the sun. "Tena te Taura a Maui"-"Se

fickleness no stream of water can ap

Hanson, whence it proceeds in a tortu.
ous course to the sea at Scituate. Now
the distance by air line from 1lanson tt
Scituate Is only ten miles. but by the
North river it is forty.
New Englanders aver that when the
tide is coming In the North river runs
upstream, and not only that, but the
upper part of it, which is fresh water,
also runs up. Thus this queer stream
presents the strange spectacle of a
fresh water river proceeding uphill.
The North river's claim to eccentric

It is so crooked that it doubles on itself.
At one spot near Hanover this river, by
accomplishing three loops, moves to
ward the sea for a distance of only
fifty feet and wanders about for a dis
tance of about fifteen miles in doing It.
In November, 189S, the North river
got very cantankerous. It moved Its
mouth three miles to the northward,
thus making a present t.o the town of
Marshfield of a deep harbor. In so do

COMPETITION IN SAVING.
A Challenge a Wife Accepted and a
Contest In Economy.
The following is an account of what
competition did toward encouraging a
"I am on a newspaper. I have al
ways made a salary in exce's of sim
ple living requirements, but I was a
free spender and did not save.
"A baby'came, and I felt an added
responsibility. I was afraid-actually
frightened for the first time in my life.
Then I gave the matter of saving some
thought, but I could not decide upon
any course of action.
"At the office one day a business dis
cussion made me see that what I need
ed in my home was competition.
"That night on my arrival home I
said to my wife that I would, begin
ning the next Saturday, give her half
of my salary and I would keep the
other half, and we each take an equal
shire of the household expenses.
"At the-end of the first month I left
my bank pook on the library table. - I
wanted to surprise her. That evening
she handed it to me and said she
thought I .was doing fine. Looking at
her closely, I saw that she realized she
was chalfenged. She did not speak,
however,' of any intention she might
have lhad .In mind.
"A aaenth ,iater I found her bank
book dift$ library table identically as
I had-left-mine. She ]Aad beaten me,
for her savings showed $10.50 more
than my ..own for the corresponding
month and $15 in excess of my depos
its for the first month.
"We are now -in a race. We both
have the saving habit. We have enough
to buy a home if we should joina funds."
The Great Big Moon.
The full. moon is very deceptive to
those who attempt to estimate its ap
parent size in the sky. Most people
would assert that the "great big moon"
could entirely blot out the lovely clus
ter of the&Pleiades, which glitters in
the constellation of Taurus, but actual- -.
ly the full' moon could, and occasion
ally does,- pass through the Pleiades
and only succeeds in hiding a few of
the stars comprising it. So small In
deed is the moon when in its full phase
it dominates the night sky that a three

completely eclipse it.-Pell Mall Ga

Its Possession Is What Makes a Man
Successful In Business.
It was one of the intellectual shocks
of my young manhood to discover that
an analytical chemist could often get
only $50 a month. I had long looked
with awe upon the accurate percent
ages and detailed reports of the ana
lytical chemist. This water contains:
2.341 g:ains of such and such sub
stance per gallon. I wondered at the
marvelous man who could get out such
fine results, and to learn that he at
times gets but $50 a month was a
The explanation is this. The chem
ical analysis of ordinary specimens Is a
technical process of a perfectly definite
character. If a work is definite and
therefore capable of being reduced to
clear cut instructions the pay that it
commands is-not likely to be high, even
though the work itself is complicated.
It requires good memory and painstak
ing obedience to instructlonis. Many'
persons have these qualities. The
scarce attribute is judgment, that in
definable quality capable of meeting a
new situation and handling it with
common sense or gumption, to put it In
a homely term.
Judgment is indefinite. We cannot
lay out instructions in advance to tell
the manager how to meet situations.
To buy good raw material he must
learn to know the raw materials, and
many of the tests he applies are too
fine for words to reduce to instructions.
He must decide for indefinite reasons
that now is a good time to enlarge or
retrench; that here is a good place to
open up business; that now is a good
time to buy or to run low on stock;
that this man needs to be hired; that
this man needs to be fired.
It is in the making of decisions that
successful management lies. A'ad most
of these decisions are beyond rule.
They are indefinite. They are judg
