The Family Portraits
"What would you say of a man if he r
should hang the portraits of his fam- t
Ily on the outside of his house?" ask
ed a builder who, has put up some of "
the finest residences in the city.
"1 mIight say he was crazy," respond
ed his friend.
"Softly. softly. The man I have in
mind is far from that Hlie's only in
love with his f:amily," went on the
builder. "lIe ha:s just had a costly
dwelling built on l'iftlh avenue opposite of
Central park. Over the street door the
medallion portraits of his wife and two 1l
children are chiseled in marble by a
noted sculptor. Strangers often stop ha
to admire the work of the artist."- "

The First Gas Tubes.
William Murdock. a Scottish mining li
engineer, appears to have been the first
to suggest that gas [might be conveyed ti.
in tubes and used instead of lamps I
and candles. He made a very ingen- p
ious gas lantern for himself, with
which he used to light his way over
I the Cornish moors at night. This lan
tern consisted of a bag filled with gas f,"
and fitted with a tube. at the end of 'I
which the gas could be lighted. Carry- of
a ing the bag under his arnn, Murdock
used to lght his way home at night.
On meeting any one he would give the ti
bag a squeeze and thus send out a long
tongue of flame. This led to his being ct
looked upon as the demon of the Cor- I
r nish moors. ii
A Smooth Villain.
"Before we were married." she com
plained. "you always engaged a cab c
when you took me anywhere. Now ,
[ you think the street car is good enough ti
"No, my darling. I don't think the If
r street car is good enough for you. It's
t because I'm so proud of you. In a cab ,i
r you would be seen by nobody, while I t'
can show you of to so many people by
taking you in a street car." vi

Newton's Apple Tree. 6
It is impossible to say at this late tN
day bow true or how false is the old v
r story about Newton's apple tree at n
Woolsthorpe, from which he is sup- r
posed to have seen the fall of the apple
[I which gave him his first thought of r'
t the attraction of gravity. Voltaire is si
e the authority for the well known story. ti
s He claims that the story was told to v
him by Catherine Barton. Newton's a
niece. IIow much truth there may be
in the tale will never be known, but it tT
d seems to be certain that tradition mark
s ed a tree as that from which the fa- tI
ll mous apple fell till 1820, when, owing ti
s to decay, the tree was cut down.-New a
