Alaska lies between almost exactly
the same parallels of latitude as do
the Scandinavian countries and Fin
land. Alaska is warmed by the Japan
current as the Scandinavian countries
are warmed by the gulf stream. Alas
ka is 100,000 square miles larger than
Norway, Sweden and Finland put to
gether. Cut off that much of the north
ern part of Alaska as worthless, and a
territory remains as large as the three
countries named and with a climate
averaging little colder. Alaska has as
much copper as Sweden has iron.
Alaska has more forests than all three
countries. Alaska has coal in quite un
.. limited quantities and large deposits

The Roman senate was a judicial
and legislative body and for several
centuries numbered 300 men, carefully
selected from the patricians. The ma
jority of votes decided a question, and
the order in which the senators spoke
and voted was determined by their
rank. Their decisions, called senatus
consulta. were the supreme law of the
republic, from which, of course, there
was no appeal. After the establish
ment of the empire the character of
the senate was greatly lowered, and
at last it became simply the tool of the
emperor, to do his bidding regardless
of the consequences.—New York Amer

n* •,* Didn't Want Any.
Swlgsby came downstairs to a 10
o'clock .breakfast, with a vacant coun
tenance and a backward tendency In
his hair that made bis eyes ache. He
sat down at the table and, picking up
his fork, glared in uneasy wonder at
something on the plate before him. It
had evidently been fried and was in
tended for food.
Swlgsby harpooned it with his fork
and lifted it bodily, gazing at- it with
"What under the sun," he exclaimed
at last, "is this thing?"
"Well," replied his patient wife, with
the shadow of a sigh, "it looks like
your new soft felt Jiat. and that is
what I thought it was. but you pulled
it out of your pocket when you came
home this morning and said it was a
nice steak, and you wanted it fried for
breakfast. You needn't give me any of
it. I'm not hungry."
And Swigsby, who was Just wild to
know what else he said when he came
home, and what time it was, for the
life of him didn't dare to ask.—Pear
8hocked and Grieved Her Husband.
Jimson was a little, sharp ed shoe
maker with stooped shoulders and a
chin whisker. He lived in a Missouri
river town, and whenever he drank too
much he used to wind up by going
home and thrashing bis wife. She
never failed to go over to a neighbor's
after a session with the old man and
complain bitterly of his treatment.
After awhile the neighbors grew wea
ry of the oft repeated tale and remark
ed: "Well, you seem to like it. You
always take it willingly. Why don't
you pick up something and hit him
with it the next time he whips you?"
The wife considered the matter, and
the next time her lord began to beat
her she grasped a chair and smashed it
over his head. The old man fell back
in-stark amazement, dropped his hands
and stared at her.
"Why, Mary—why, Mary!" he whim
pered. "What on earth is the matter
with you? You never done this way
before."—Kansas City Star.
Humanity to Mules.
"In the fifteen years that I have been
connected with societies for the pre
vention of cruelty to animals in this
and other cities I never have received
a complaint alleging cruelty to a mule,"
said the humane looking man. "That
immunity of mules from harsh treat
ment is an Interesting question. Why
are they immune? There are plenty
of mules, even in Philadelphia. Does
nobody beat them? Does nobody un
derfeed them? If not, why not? Does
a mule show such a decided ability to
take care of himself that his owner is
afraid to abuse him, or do men beat
mules and starve them and escape
punishment because the persons who
witness the beating and starving think
it is only a mule and not worth both
ering about? What is the explanation
of that phase of the mule question,
An Old Scotch Sundial.
Record is contained in the Bible of
a sundial set up in 771 B. C. by Ahaz to
commemorate the miraculous healing
of his sod, Hezekiah. A very ancient
one was some time ago discovered ly
ing in the grounds of the ruined castle
of Finlarig. Killin. Perthshire, Scot
land, the ancient seat of the Breadal
banes. Unlike most dials, it has twelve
planes for recording the hours and two
circular planes for use in summer and
winter respectively. For many centu
ries the occupants of the castle deci
phered its many angles as it stood
reared on a tall pedestal, reflected in
the waters of a fountain. The interval
of nearly 2.000 years between this dial
and that set up by Ahaz shows for how
long the dial held its own as an object
The Critic Criticised.
Whistler once gave a tart answer to
a critic of one of the "nocturnes." This
critic said the nocturne in question
wasn't good. Whistler screwed his
monocle and grinned at the man.
"Don't say it isn't good," he said.
"Say you don't like it. Then you'll be
safer. And now come over here. Here
is something you do like."
And Whistler led the critic to a side
board whereon there stood a whisky
Not In His Clase.
The young "man with a perpendicular
measurement of six feet and breadth
in proportion had asked the demure
little maiden of four feet six to marry
"Harold." she said, flashing out a re
sentful glance up at him, "that isn't
fair! It isn't sportsmanlike! Take
one of your size!"—Chicago Tribune.
