A BULL CHAMPION
(Now York Press)
The heto of tho SpanUh bull ring
has not always boon tho toreador
there was once' a bull who earned tho
plaudits of tho arena on more than
one -occasion by repeatedly clearing
It of his antagonists. "Curiously
enough, however, ho nolthor killed nor
dangerously wounded nny man, but
ho did put to flight every toreador,
picador, chulo or bandcrllloro who dar
ed to enter tho arena with him, and
though tho crowdB camo to sco him
slain, his conduct proved so vnllant
that tho people demanded that his life
should bo spared.
This bull's name was Lcchuzo. Ho
mado his first appearance in tho arena
at San Lucar, in Andalusia, somo
years "ago and so suddonly cleared
tho ring of his encmlos that tho people
roso in admiration and demanded his
reprlovo, for In splto of his bravery
ho would havo been treacherously np
praoched and put to death for tho sat
isfaction of tho multitude bad not tho
people intervened. Again, at Cordova,
after tho wounds rhad been healed
which tho picadors Inflicted upon him
at San Lucar, Lcchuzo drovo all his
enemies beforo him ana again his life
was spared at the demand of tho spec
tators. So Lcchuzo camo to bo regarded
as lnvlnciblo and finally ended his
days In peaco at tho ago of 10 years.
Somo admirers wero desirous of testi
fying to his prowess by erecting in
his honor a monument at" San Lucar,
tho scoiio'' of his first triumph, but
nothing camo of tho proposal.

PAINTING ..THE WORLD;
Indian Lonend of tho Way Spring
Came Into Existence,
Once, long lefore there were men In
the world, all the curth wns covered
with snow nnd tee.
White und frozen lay tho rlvere and
the seas: white und frozen lay the
plains. The mountains stood tall nnd
dead, like ghosts In whlto gowns.
There was no color except whlto In all
tho world except In tho slsy. and it was
almost lilii.'k. At night tho stars look
ed through It llko angry eyes.
Then God sunt the Spring down Into
the world-tho Spring with red lips and
curling yellow hair.
In his arms ho bore sprays of appto
blossoms nnd the Urst flowers crocus,
rnnenioiic's and violets, red, pink, bluo,
purple, violet and yonow.
Tho first nnlmnl to greet the Spring
wns tho whlto rabbit The Spring
dropped a red crocus on his bead, and
over slttco then nil wblto rabbits have
bad red oyes. . '
Then tho Spring dropped a bluo vio
let on a whlto bird, tbo first bird to
greet tho Spring, und that Is the way
the bluebird was made Ever since
then It is the first bird to nrrivo when
the Spring comes down from heaven.
So tho Spring went through the
world. Wherever bo tossed tho leaves
from bis fragrant burden tbo earth
became green. Ho tossed tbo blossoms
on tbo frozen seas, and tho Ice melted
and tho tlah became painted with all
tbo tint of his flowers. That Is tbo
way tho trout nnd tho minnows nnd
tho snlmon bccuuie gaudy.
Only the high mountains would not
bow to the Spring. So their summits
romnlu whlto und dead, for thoy would
let tho Spring paint only tho sides.
Tho Hiiow owls und tho wblto geeso
and tlio polar bears fled from the
Sdrlng, so hey, too, remain whlto to
this day. N
Gems That Are to Be Found In
the Old Arithmetics. '.
ALL OF THEM "PRACTICAL."
That Was What the Inquisitive Boy's
Father Told Him, and the Uad Start
ed Out to Verify the Statement The
"Practical" Examples He Dug JJp.
Wns education more practical a gen
eration ago, or did John's father study
bis booUs mora thoroughly than John
does? John Is a seventh grade student
in tbo public schools. He asked bis
father to help hltn solve the following
"A., asked bow much money bo has
In tbo bunk, replied. 'If I had $10
more 1 would have $1,000 more than
half what I now have.' How much
money btttl A.V"
"Such 11 fool problem." said tho fa
ther. "Tell that teacher to ask tho
cashier. You have boon pestering me
with problems lllcc tbut for a week.
Suppose your teacher ashed you how
old you are. Would you tell hor 'If I
were ten times as old as 1 ani, dimin
ished by forty-two, 1 would bo thirty
years older than dad, mid if dad wero
one-fourth bh old as ho now Is be
would be myugeV What would your
teacher do If you answered In such a
manner? In my day we had practical
problems In our arithmetic."
In order to Investigate bis father's
statement .loin) went to the public li
brary und nuked for un old arithmetic
Tho .librarian gnvc btm Richard's
Natural Arithmetic. He turned to the
pago mnrked "Practical Exercises"
"A. puts his whole flock of sheep Into
three pastures. Half go Into one pas
ture, one-third into another nnd thirty
two into a third. How many in the
"That's queer," said John. "Prac
tical exercises too. Hero is a man wbo
wants to find how; many sheep bo lias.
He counts them so ho will know when
bo has half of thorn. This half bo
puts into n pasture. Then ho counts
out n third and puts it In nnothcr pen.
Next bo counts what's loft and finds
ho has thirty-two. After n littlo figur
ing bo finds how many in tho whole
flock. Very practical. I guess dad
didn't study that book."
The next book be examined was
Milne's inductive Arithmetic, edition
of 1S70. in mlscollnncous oxabplcs be
found the following:
"Two ladders will together Just reach
tho top ot a building seventy-five feet
high. If tho shorter ladder is two
thirds the length of tbo other, what is
the length of each?"
"Why didn't be measure each ladder
separately?" John asked himself. "That
problem Is not practical. 1 guess dad
Is older than 1 thought. I wnut an
Tho text written In 1SGS was handed
to him. The book was evidently influ
enced by the civil war, for It was tilled
with problems dealing with battering
down fortifications aiid tho sustenance
of soldiers. One problem was:
"If twelve pieces of cannon (eight
een pounders) can batter down u for
tress In three" hours, how long will It
take for nineteen tweuty-foar-pound-ers
to batter down the suhio fortress?"
"That's line for a general," John re
flected, "but dad says that I am golngj
to bo a captain of industry."
Another arithmetic of the samo date
hud the famous flsh problem with
which John's teacher had troubled him
for six weekH before bo himself finally
explained It to tho clnss. Tho flsh
"Tho head of a flsh is ten lncjies
long. Its tall Is as long as Ifs head and
one-half the body. Tho body Is as long
as the bend aud tall both. How long is,
Very bandy problem for n butcher.
John turned to the Common School
Arithmetic, edltlou of 1853. "Here
I'm sure to And something good," ho
reflected aud read:
"A haro starts up twol vo rods beforo a
hound, but she Is not perceived by him
till sho has been up one and one-fourth
minutes. Sho runs at tbo rato of thlr-ty-slx
rods a minute, and tho hound
runs at the rato of forty rods a min
ute. How long will tho race last, and
what will bo tbo distduco tho hound
"Whnt diffetonco does It make how
far the houud runs?" John asked as hoj
turucd to tho Scholar's Arithmetic,
edition of 1807. ' Tho present high cost
of living mado tho first problem Im
practical for present dny purposes,
John concluded. Tho problem was as
"If I give eighty bushels of potatoes
at 21 cents a bushol and 240 pounds of
flax at IB cents a pound for sixty-four
bushels of salt, what Is tho salt worth
Another problem was: 1
"A good man driving hla guest to
market was met by another, who said,
'Good morrow, master, with your 100
goeso., Says be In reply, I havo not
100 geeso. but If I bad half ns many
ns I now hnve nnd two nnd one-half
geeso besides tho number I now havo
already 1 should havo 100.' How
many geese hod tho man?"
JIow long would yqu permit a man
to Uvo If ho mado such nn answer to
"Phew!" John sighed ns ho wiped his
forehead nnd handed tho book back to
the llbrarhiu. "Dad must have skipped
these practical problems." Kansas

qualities we have as by those wp af
