Misleading Eiok i it!?s.
Pome book titles are distinctly mis
leading. Ruskin's "On the Construc

Henry James' novel "The Lesson of
the Master" has more than once been
catalogued as a religious work. The
same fate befell Sir Edward Hamil

Mghly technical study of schemes for
the reduction of the national debt.
"Disloyala; or, The Doubtful Priest,"
was the title originally selected by
Sliorthouse for the book we now know
ts "Jolm lnglesant." It was changed

people to regard It as an attack on

A Mediterranean Phenomenon.
Mirages are common In many parts
of the world, such phenomena being
familiar to travelers In the tropics as
well as in the arctic regions and on
deserts just the same as upon the wa
ters of lakes, seas and oceans. The
most peculiar of the whole list of at
mospheric illusions Is that species of
mirage called the fata morgana, which
is peculiar to that portion of the Medi
terranean sea which lies off the coast
of Calabria between Italy and Sicily.
Exhibitions of the fata morgana are
the most fantastic spectacles Imagina
ble. If a city Is presented to view
some of the buildings are seen stand
ing In their natural positions, while
those adjoining may be standing at
every conceivable angle or are com
pletely inverted. The morgana has
been known since before the time of
Christ and has always been viewed
with awe by superstitious people.

SACRIFICED HIS HOME.
Couple Obtain Oivsrco Go Husband Can
Enlist—Hope to Remarry.
Fred It. Spear, twent.v-.five years old,
of Farrington, N. 11., is on his way to
a training camp with a party of army
recruits, and his young wife has re
sumed her maiden name, Ruth T. Gor
They were divorced by mutual con
sent so that Spear could enlist. He
feared rejection on the ground of hav
ing dependents, and after serious con
sideration he and his wife decided it
was best to break up their home in
the interests of tlieir flag.
They have been married a compara
tively short time and were devoted to
each other. The divorce was granted
in Dover on grounds of "willing ab
sence," which in New Hampshire Is
the legal term for desertion.

HE INVENTS WORDS.
This Man Finds Tsrms to Fit Emorgon-
ciee For the Dictionaries.
There are In the world many un
usual and unique occupations, but per
haps the strangest of all which pays a
good Income Is that of a New York
newspaper man who earns, In addition
to his regular salary from the paper,
rather regular amounts from the pub
lishers of dictionaries, encyclopedias
and other such volumes. His occupa
tion Is the inventing of new words.
The casual observer would be in
clined to remark that the English lan
guage already possesses enough words
for all uses without the Invention of
any new ones, and probably his state
ment would be fact. Nevertheless it is
true that this man is paid substantial
sums for inventing new words to fit
special phases, situations, occupations
and occurrences, and that the publish
ers of dictionaries will incorporate into
them any new word based on substan
tial derivatives for the existence of
which a plausible reason can be made.
The progress of modern business, and
especially the discoveries (hat have
been made in the fields of electricity
and medicine In the last decade, have
been responsible for the Incorporation

It was John Adams, in 1780, who
began the negotiations for the first
great Dutch loan. At that time con
gress was so hard up for ready cash
that it had begun to draw bills of ex
change for money which had not yet
been obtained. It was left to their
commissioners in Europe to find the
necessary funds. The treason of Ar
nold and the capture of the latest con
gressional missionary together with
the discovery of all his papers—they
were fished out of the ocean after he
had thrown them overboard—had made
the Dutch financiers very skeptical
about the ultimate success of the co
lonial uprising. The surrender of
Cornwallls In October of the next year,
however, offset these fears of ultimate
defeat, and a combination of Dutch
firms ventured to invest 5,000,000
guilders in a congressional loan. In
September of 1782 congress affirmed
this loan and at once received 1,300,-

Tho Melody That Spelled Merit to tho
John Chinaman often has peculiar
ideas about the wearing apparel that
he buys in America. For one thing he
always wants boots that are several
sizes too large, for he believes that in
that way he gets uiore value for his
money. In addition to excessive size,
boots may have to possess other pe
culiar characteristics before they meet
his full approval, as the following story
A California merchant offered a pair
of line boots that he had long kept in
stock to a Chinese for $3. The orien
tal finally took them, but two days
later he brought them back.
"What's the trouble, John?" inquired
the merchant. "Him good boots."
"Him no good," declared John. "Him
no singsong boot. Velly soon wear out.
Me likee singsong boot or me catchee

OUR ORGAN OF BALANCE.
When It Become* Affected It Produces
an Attack of Vertigo.
When any one feels dizzy and per
haps almost about to faint his brain
cannot properly control the working of
his eyes. They may move round from
side to side, perhaps independently In
stead of together, and so it may look
as if things were spinning around.
Another reason for dizziness has to
do with a wonderful part of the body
near the ear and without which none
of us could sit upright, much less
stand, though few people have ever
heard of it. This organ, which used to
be thought to have something to do
with hearing, really controls our bal
ance. In some people It is affected by
disease, and those people constantly
suffer from dizziness and a feeling that
everything is spinning round and
As every one knows, we can make
ourselves dizzy and so think every
thing is spinning round by whirling
around ourselves several times in one
direction. Tills disturbs the organ of
balance, and this disturbance gives us
the feeling. If you turn round the
other way you put things right by re
storing the original state of affairs
within the balancing organ. The name
for the feeling that things are spinning
round is vertigo, and "vert" simply
means "turn."—Kansas City Star.
Origin of the Jury System.
A jury is a body of laymen sum
moned and sworu to ascertain tlfe truth
as to facts raised iu legal proceedings.
The Jury system of the United States
developed from that of England: This
iu turn had its origin in Frankiah in
quest, which was translated into Eng
land by Norman kings. Iu these In
quests a body of neighbors was sum
moned by a public officer to give an
swer upon oath on some question of
fact or law or of mixed fact and law.
In the beginning the object of the in
quiry was usually to obtain informa
tion for the kiug to ascertain facts
needed for assessing taxes.
The Young Idea.
In a certain school a schoolboy of
tender years is said to have produced
the following essay on the camel: "The
cannlmal is a sheep of the desert. It
is called a backteria because It has a
hump on Its back. The cannlmal Is
very patient and will lie down and die
without a groan, but when it is angry
it gets its back up, which is called the
hump. The shepherds of cannimals is
called Arabs. When they live in towns
they are called street Arabs. When the
cannimal goes on a journey it drinks
as much as it can to last for many
(lays. Such animals are called acqui
ducks. Those that cannot carry enough
are called inebriates."
