FATE OF THE POLARIS.
The Polaris, with Charles Francis
Hall in command, had been sent out
by the United States government on
scientific expedition, and had
reached the most northern point ever
attained by a vessel. In the autumn
of 1872 the Polaris ran into an im
passable ice floe, and remained there
for two months. Nineteen persons,
including some of the crew and 6ome
of tho Eskimos on board, left the
6hip, which was leaking badly. They
took supplies and camped on the
ice, intending to make for the land.
They had not gone far when a ter
rific gale blew up and they found
themselves unable to reach either
the ship or the land. Then the ice
split and they were set adrift on the
floe. Having supplies, they were
able to live, but they faced the pros
pect of certain destruction in case of
a severe storm, and the ice floe be
gan to diminish in size as they drift
ed southward. However, they were
all rescued. They numbered, in fact,
one more than when they had started
on their strange voyage, for the Es
kimo Hannah had given birth to a

GENESIS OF THE CHIMNEY
nea tnvntd a Tubt Throuph
WhMt Fatted tHe Htat Frm
In the excavations at Pompeii and
Ilerculaneum no discovery appears
to have been rrindo of anything ap
proaching the nature of the modern
chimney. The earliest mention of
the chimney seems to bo in an an
cient Venetian inscription over a
doorway, where it' is written that in
1347 certain chimneys in that loca
tion were demolished by earthquakes.
It is by conjecture only that wc are
able to say that the chimney waa
known in ancient Italy. Seneca,
who lived during the first century
of , our era, invented a species of tuba
which he affixed to the length of
tho wall, and it seems to have run
through floors. Through this tho
heat passed from 'subterranean ovens
called "hypocaustis," of which re
mains were found in buried cellars
of houses built on the Bay of Na
ples. But in this there is no evi
dence of any chimney in the mod
ern sense or even of any kind of
stove. Before the invention of the
chimney fires were made inexcava
tions or pits opened beneath the
floor of habitations in about the cen
ter of the room, as the Eskimos do
BLIND AND LAME CO-OPERATED
Tale From the Talmud of the King's
Watchers In' the Orchard
and the Stolen Figs.
A certain king, who had an or
chard of fig trees, prized the fruit
so highly that he determined to have
the trees guarded that the fruit
might not be stolen. For this pur
pose he placed in the orchard,, a
blind man and a lame man.
The next day when the king vis
ited the orchard he found, much of
the fine fruit gone, and he asked the
watchers what had become of it.
"I do not know," replied one man.
"Nor I," said his companion.
The king then asked it they had
xiten the fruit themselves. .
"I could not steal the figs," said
the lame man, "for I could not walk
up to the trees."
"And I could not take them," said
the blind man, "for I cannot sec."
But the king was very wise, and
he soon found out that the blind
man had carried the lame man, and
that while the blind man used his
legs, the lame man had used his eyes
and hands, and in this way the figs
had been stolen. But the men were
severely punished. From the Tal
mud. . ORIGIN OF THE MANOR.
Under "William the Norman tha
Pillage system of Saxon and Norse
freeholders was practically replaced
by the "manors" with which he re
warded hundreds and thousands of
his barons and knights, after the
conquest of England. The manor
might comprise one or more villages,
or a wide range of moor and forest,
sparsely inhabited, but for its pos
session the lord of tho manor owed
service and certain payments of
money or property to his sovereign,
and in return had .practical sover
eignty over tho people of his .do
main. His were the rights of "pit
and gallows" to drown any woman
and hang any man whom he might
adjudge guilty under the stern Dra
conian code of a period when thief
and poacher, heretic and Tailer, were
fortunate if they escaped with muti
lation or a whipping that was scarce
ly to be preferred to death. "Nobil
ity of the Trades," by Charles Wins
low Hall in National Magazine.
In a shop recently a well-known
actress, who is noted for her peren
nial youth, asked for a traveling bag
of alligator Bkin. The shopkeeper,
who had none of that particular sort,
brought out instead some of smooth
"And you tell me this is alligator
skin?" objected the actress. "Why-
where are all its wrinkles?"
"Ah, madam," replied tho wily
dealer, who knew his customer,
"wrinkles are out of vogue. The,
correct alligator bag is made from
tho skin of an alligator that has been
massaged." Cincinnati Times-Star.
