Origin Of Familiar. Things By Madison c. Peters
Forks Were first Introduced in England in 1600.
FORKS were aaknown until about
COO years ago. A knife was used
at one table to cut up food, but
i ne food was conveyed by the fingers
to tht mouth. In 1600 forte were firsc
introduced into England, and what is
now looked upon as an evidence of re
finement was derived from the Ital
ians, and at first, eating vith a fork
was laughed at outside of Italy, as an
effeminate piece of finerj.
The first evidence of a use of the
fork in the 20th century fashion was
by a noble lady of Byzantium, who had
married a doge of Venice, and ate in
that citv after her own custom, cutting
her meat very finely up and conveying
it to her mouth with a two-pronged
fork The act was regarded in Venice
as a sign of expensive luxury and ex
treme effeminacy. It is probable that
the fashion of eating with forks origi
nated at the imperial court of Byzan
tium some hundreds of years before it
extended to the west. This doge's By
zantine wife lived in the 11th century,
w nil-1 the fashion of eating with forks
did not become general until about
None of the Roman ruins show chim
nea. Roman architects complain that
their decorations were smoked up. The
chimntv of antiquity was a hole in the
roof A kitchen in Rome was always
soot The wealthy Romans used dry
wood which would burn without soot.
The oldest certain account of a chim- ,
ney places it in Venice in 1347.
Pharmacj and medicine were first
made separate professions by the
priests in the 10th century. The prepa
rations were sold to the rich and given
away to the poor. The first mention
of apothecaries in France was in 1484.
The father of apothecaries was Con
stantme Afer, of Carthage.
Silk Made B. C 200.
The first silk was made B. C 2600
by the wife of a Chinese emperor.
Aristotle at 350 first mentions silk
among the Greeks. It was not until
A, D. 530, however, that silk began
to be cultivated in Europe. The first
eggs were brought to India by monks.
Ocean navigation is of comparatively
recent date 'Waiving all that has been
claimed for the voyage of the Savan
nah, the first regularly built ocean
steamer was constructed on this side
of the Atlantic by an American ship
builder, and this ship was the first
seagoing steamer that ever crossed the
ocean, propelled wholly by steam, and
was called the Royal William, in honor
of the sailor-king who then reigned In
England. The Historical society of
Chicago has her origianl drawings on
Insurance dates from the 16th cen
tury and was known at that time in
Florence. The Romans knew nothing
about insurance. The nearest they
came to It was the practice of a com
pany supplying the army to require a
jmarantee from the state against the
loss of ships, which was soon aban

Tea drinking was invented by Chin
Hong 5000 years ago. An old woman
was accustomed to proceed, so the
story runs, every morning at daybreak
to the market place, carrying a cup
of tea in her hand. The tea plant has
grown for centuries in central Asia,
but tea drinking now began, the people
bought it eagerly from the old woman,
and from the dawn of day to dusky
night the cup was never exhausted.
The money received was given to the
orphans and beggars. The old woman
was sent to prison, but at night she
flew through her prison window with
her little vase in her hands.
Tea was not heard of Id China again
for 350 years, when a priest advised
its use as a medicine. In the ninth
century a beggar from Japan took
some of the medicine and plants to his
native land. The Japanese liked the
tea as a drink, and built at Osaka a
temple in memory of those who intro
duced it a temple still standing 700
years old. Gradually the people of
Tartary and Persia also learned to
love Jhe drink and served it all hours
of the day. The Dutch and the Portu
guese introduced the herb into Eu
rope. In the seventh century it be
came known among persons of qual
ity in Europe. In 1602 Dutch traders
carried a quantity of sage (which was
then used to make a popular drink in
Europe) to China, and by some in
genious device the Chinese tea drink
ers looked upon this as a fair exchange
ior an equal amount or tea, whloft
was brought home in safety and with
out the loss of a single Dutchman.
The contribution box is of American
origin. In colonial days all contribu
tions were made in the shape of the
necessaries of life. It was in this way
that the preachers -were cared for, but
the difficulty arose when it came to
providing for missionaries. It was im
possible to send a missionary on his
journey witn Dusneis or potatoes and
pdunds of pork. Money became neces
sary, and in some American brain the
idea was conceived of using the brass
warming pan to collect it It was easy
to judge by the noise how much coin
was collected. Therefore, it was deter
mined upon to adopt something less
noisy. Then followed a time when
the corn popper did duty as a collec
tion plate. The sound of money was
no longer heard as it struck the brass
pan, but something more artistic was
felt to be in keeping with the purpose
to which the money -was devoted, and
gradually there was evolved the con
tribution box, as we see it today.

DICK CARTWRIGHT flung the
scented note into the fireplace.
"Turned down," he muttered.
"Well, I shall get over it, I daresay."
He had cause for his bitterness. He
had spent two seasons and more money
than he could really afford in courting
a capricious society beauty, Phyllis
Moore. And now, in a curt, cruel, little
note, she told him that she was tired
of the flirtation.
A week later the late afternoon
found him standing on the edge of the
prairie, where the westward bonnd
train had dropped him. "Say," he said
to the solitary official, "how do you
get to Yellow Cat creek?"
The man jerked His thumb toward a
belt of distant pines. "More'n beyond
that ridge," he answered.
Dick shouldered his valise and
started off down the trail that his taci
turn guide had indicated. When he
reached the belt of pines he sat down
to rest, and, thinking over the events

Ike Herald's Daily
of the past few days, he discovered to
his surprise that his heart no longer
ached, and he was able to contemplate
his present immunity from Phyllis
Moore's exacting demands with a
pleasant sense of freedom.
Suddenly the thud of horse's hoofs
brought him to his feet as a broncho,
ridden by a girl, galloped round the
corner of the trail, and swerving sharp
ly, drew up beside him. "Say, are you
the sheriff." she gasped.
'Tm afraid not. but if I can be of
any use to you, pray command me," he
For answer she swung gracefully out
of her saddle. "I live just outside Tel

I got home this afternoon about hall
an hour ago, there were a couple of
toughs prowling round our place.
They're going to raid it sure."
"Lend me your mount," he Inter
rupted, "and if I don't move them for
you I'll go under trying."
Almost before he knew what he was
doing Dick was in the saddle and tear
ing down the trail. Half an hour stiff
riding brought him to the place she
had described, then, as he galloped up
to the door, he heard a woman's terri
fied scream. Quickly dismounting, he
entered the living room, to xind two
ruffians threatening an old lady who
was half unconscious with terror.
"Say. what's your game, anvhnw'"
he cried. Swift as thought one of the
men dodged under his arm. and escaped
into the open, then, as his accomplice
tried to execute the same tactics, Dick
laid him out with a deft blow between
"I hope you are not hurt madam."
he said, as, having bound the man's
arms and legs securely, he turned to
the old lady he had rescued.
"No I m not hurt," she answered,
promptly recovering her spirits now
the danger was over. "Did vou meet
my daughter on the trail-'" He nodded.
Then the pirl. followed by half a
dozen swarthy cowboys, dashed into
the room Ignoring the rescuer and
the bound man upon the floor, she
rushed into her mother's arms.
