.tiAKING A REPUTATION.
About ten years ago a young woman
from Detroit accepted a spoon offered
her by her male companion after din
ner in a Port Huron hotel. The pro
prietor saw her hide it in her gown
and the couple were taken to the
police station. There amends were
made, and the two were released.
The spoon was worth about 25 cents.
Xow this incident used in court, has
resulted in the girl losing a suit for
$100,000. That 25 cent spoon cost her
about $101,000, she says.
Is there a moral in this story?
It is getting to be an unusual sight
to see a man riding horseback. Xote
the modes of travel used by people
passing your door and you will find
not one in twenty uses this means
once so popular.
This does not mean that the horse
is passing into disuse. It is simply a
case of people changing to more com
fortable methods. It is not uncom
mon nowadays for a man to say that
he would as soon walk as travel
horseback. In earlier days, before
goods roads, easy-riding vehicles and
automobiles, this was the easiest,
quickest and most comfortable way to
get about. Even a lifetime ago the
ratio was probably the reverse
twenty to one in favor of the horse
The saddle will not become a relic
of the old days, but in the future rid
ing horseback will be more and more
for pleasure and exercise than for a
way of travel.
finding the arctic atlantis.
From beyond the Arctic Circle has
come a strange bit of news, and by a
singular coincidence it bears the date
of October 12. The discovery of a
new land probably a new continent
is the startling announcement
brought back by Commander Wilkit
sky, a Russian, from the land of snow
The announcement savors of fif
teenth century exploits and reads like
a chapter from the front of an Ameri
can history. Just 421 years before a
Genoese seaman made a similar dis
covery which caused the map of the
world to be made over.
The new continent, according to the
explorer, is situated 500 miles north
of Siberia, within the Artie Circle.
Apparently it is uninhabited by man,
but animal and bird life is plentiful.
The commander saw many mountains
and much vegetation.
The country has been named
Nicholas Second Land and will un
doubtedly be the last great discovery
of land. It will end the long search
for the Arctic Atlantis, the existence
of which has been for many years
maintained by scientists.
THE ENGLISH 3IAN.
If it is not a disgrace to be strong
and healthy looking, it is at least not
fashionable, which amounts to the
same thing. The English system of
men's clothing demands, narrow,
drooping, shoulders, a waspish waist
and small spindling spider legs. That
part of the English-tailored man's
anatomy which on common mortals
surmounts the spinal column must be
crowned with a little round hat with
the bow behind.
The coat should be at least two sizes
too small. Trousers must be of that
cut which, were the wearer to sit sud
denly, would cause him considerable
It is not graceful to walk erect, head
up, chest out, shoulders thrown back.
The English young man stoops his
shoulders. His head dangles at the
end of a horizontal neck, the longer
the more fashionable. This position
of head necessitates a position of the
hat which hides the "feather" of an
English hair-cut. The arms should
by no means hang by the side, but
must suspend vertically, making an
angle of 35 degrees with the body.
A view from the rear should give
the corresponding impression of a
kangaroo. A profile of the form
should reveal a crescent, concave in
front, convex behind.
The walk should by no means be
firm and elastic. To acquire the Eng
lish form is not sufficient. One must
move. Let the knees bend forward.
Slide the feet along, letting them fall
flat with the toes at an angle of 45
degrees inward. The locomotion is
the most difficult part of the English
system. It will reveal the amateur
without fail. To acquire the English
effect, one must have not only the
physical, but also the required mental
A CONVICT FOR A WEEK.
At least one public office holder has
demonstrated that he takes his posi
tion seriously, as a trust of the peo
ple. That person is T. M. Osborne,
chairman of the New York Commis
sion for Prison Reform. To become
better acquainted with prison con
ditions, he recently spent a week in
the Auburn prison as an ordinary con
vict. Mr. Osborne kept a diary of his
seven days' experience on scraps of
paper. He found that there was un
necessary restraint placed on prison
ers, that there was a lack of fresh air
and exercise and an absence of human
sympathy. His experience has made
clear to him three priciples on which
the whole prison system must be re
built. These are that the law must
decree "temporary exile" until the of
fender is fit to return; that society
must not brand a man as a criminal;
and that the prison must be an in
stitution where each individual may
have the largest practicable amount
Mr. Osborne's stay in prison as one
of the convicts has put new spirit in
the men, because they feel that the
public has turned its attention toward
prison reform. Discipline in the peni
tentiary has also improved.
The Renennl of the Body.
Annie Rix Militz has added a new
book to the fund of information on
"new ideas," such as Xew Thought,
Christian Science. Divine Science and
others. She tries to give a code for
putting these ideas into practical use,
in a book called "The Renewal of the
The material was gathered from
data in the lives and experiences of
healers, teachers and students. It is
the author's theory that the body mir
rors one's thoughts.
"The power of the mind, exercised
through the will and the understand
ing, is the key to bodily renewal," says
Mrs. Militz. "Truth believed and ap
plied delivers the body from the ills
that flesh is heir to. By thought the
body was built; by thought (of the
right kind) it can be rebuilt." This
is the message of "The Renewal of the
Body." The Elizabeth Towne Co.,

Principles of Narration.
"The Rhetorical Principles of Narra
tion" is a book by Carrol Lewis Maxcy,
professor of rhetoric in Williams Col
lege. The book is filled with extracts
of notable works of narration, each be
ing analyzed and the striking fea
tures of each point out. The student
is expected to develop a further ap
preciation of narration by studying
some of the better works named by
The book begins by giving a clear
idea of narration by means of
examples with comment upon them,
and by showing its relation to the
other forms of discourse. This is fol
lowed by an analysis of settings, back
grounds and action in narration.
A commendable thing about the
book is the way the student is led
to see clearly the idea of the author
by reading his explanations of the
examples. (Houghton Mifflin Com
pany, New York; cloth; 75 pages.)
Notes 011. the International Lessons.
In the 1914 edition of the Inter
national Sunday School Lessons by
the Rev. F. N. Peloubet and Amos R.
Wells is embodied a complete study
of the Bible. Besides numerous pic
tures which illustrate the text, refer
ences to literature are compiled to en
able the student to make a literary
study of the passages. Yet the les
sons are suitable also for young chil
dren. Every lesson is fixed in its
historical place, a travel study is out
lined and an extensive comment is
made on the text for the benefit of
older students. The book contains-
lessons for the entire year. (W. A.

The Hand of The Mighty.
Characters are what most impress
you in "The Hand of the Mighty," a
new book of short stories by Vaughn
Kester. And they are real characters
not the overdrawn exaggerated peo
ple of older literature, but the sort
you associate with every day.
Kester's heroes are not monuments
of virtue. They are not men who
cannot do wrong, but men who ad
minister the unwritten law of God.
His style is well, "quaint and home
'y" says it all. His honor doesn't
flash. It oozes. "The Hand of the
Mighty" contains stories of life as it
is, not as idealists would have it.
(Bobbs-Merrill, Indianapolis; cloth;
Amanda of the Mill.
"Amanda of the Mill" is a story
laid among the mill-workers of the
South. The vividness of Marie Van
Vorsfs descriptions of the everyday
life of the men, women and children
who toil in the mills makes an elo
quent, though indirect, appeal for
greater justice to them.
The two central characters, Amanda
and Eustace, are both intimately
connected with the life of the mills.
The struggle of each against poverty,
adverse circumstances and separation
make them our friends, and wo are
ad when their love story has a happy
ending. (Bobbs-Merrill Co., India
