the suspected sender, whose motive was
revenge on account of a lady, was a
man of wealth and power.
But this subject was cleared, and the
mystery was deepened by the following
circumstances: A rich Manchester mer
chant, traveling one day in a railway
car about the time of the incident re
lated, got into conversation with a most
agreeably and highly cultivated stran

A Bad Place For I'al Men.
Among the ancient Spartans every
thing was considered secondary to mil
itary efficiency, and with a view to so-
curing this the boys and men were by
law kept in a continual state of "train
ing." No deformed child was allowed
to live. The boys were taken from their
homes and subjected to military regu
lations at the age of 7. They were com
pelled to wear the tame singlo garment
winter and summer. At 20 they joined
the ranks, and from that age till they
reached 60 were required to dine at the
public tables, where only a certain
quantity was supplied for each man.
The magistrates interfered in abenrdly
small matters. They regulated the de
gree of fatness to which it was lawful
for any citizen to extend his body.
Those who dared to grow too fat or
too soft for military service and exer
cise were sometimes soundly flogged.
Aelian, in bis history, relates that
Nauclis, son of Polytns, was brought
before the epbors (magistrates) and the
whole assembly of Sparta, and "bis un
lawful fatness" was publicly exposed,
and be was threatened with perpetual
banishment if be did not bring his body
within the regular Spartan compasa
and give up the culpable mode of living.

A LESSON IN COOKING.
There can be no true "bimetallism'
with free coinage oi one metal and a
limited coinage of the other. The
word bimetallism," as used by mone
tary writers, means exactly the same
as the ''double standard." That is to
sav, it means a money standard con
sisting of two metals, used at a cer
tain ratio to each other, both freely
coined and each full legal tender after
it is coined. In his testimony before
the royal commission of England.

or of the bank of England, defined bi
metallism as follows:
i. An open mint, to which every
man may bring either gold or silver
to be coined.
2. A fixed ratio which the gold and
suver coins are to bear to each other.
3. The enactment that the money
so coined shall be legal tender to any
amount at me option of the payer.

"The first time I ran away from
home I learned a trick or two that was
worth tbe while. " said a well known
business man. "I started out on several
unauthorized tours of adventure before
I reached years of discretion, but tbe
first is most vividly impressed upon my
memory. Three of us kids caught n
frtight train and got some 60 or 70
miles away fcom home before the first
nightfall. Then we didn't know where
to spend the night. Several attempts to
qnarter ourselves in empty box cars on
the side track of a little village only
resulted in our being chased away and
threatened with 'Arrest, so we went to
the outskirts of the place and built a
fire on the bank of a little creek. Here
we made ourselves as comfortable as
possible and one or two of us had actu
ally dozed off for short., naps when a
regular hobo, a good specimen of the
real article, happened along and wanted
to know if we had anything to eat Of
course we hadn't.
" 'Well. he said. if you fellers'll
ketch' a chicken I'll show you a trick
that'll be useful to you.'
"It didn't take ns long to catch the
chicken and bring it back. The veteran
member of the nomadic fraternity

cleaned it and going down to the creek
wadded it up, feathers, feet and alL in
a big ball of yellow clay. This he rolled
into the fire and scraped the burning
embers -up around it Tbe clay soon
hardened, and we could see it among
tbe wood coals gradually becoming a
bright cherry red. When it did so. the
cook rolled it out again, let it cool a
little and then broke it open with a
stone. The feathers had stuck to the
baked clay and a clean, inviting chick
en was ready to be served. All the
moisture that in ordinary baking is lost
had been kept in by tbe bricklike m

lot was the juiciest and sweetest I have

pened to be such that a particularly

sat with one of the vacant chairs on

therefore could move neither to the
