Man. Million Years.
According to the conclusions of Mr.
A. II. Keane, a well known Guglish
ethnologist, the first creatures that
could properly Ik? called men appeared
on the earth In what geologists know
as the pliocene iktIimI, somewhere
nbout a million years ago. The (ire-
cursor of man, Mr. Keane thinks, was
some such apelike creature as the
I'ftheeatliropus ereetus. discovered by
Ir. iMibois In Java a few years ago.
Four varieties of men were developed:
Homo othlopicus In Africa south of
the equator. Homo mongollcus In cen
tral Asia. Homo aniericanus In the
new world and Homo cancasicus In
northern Africa. From these the exist
lug races are descended.

'"N'nmlne Children In Japan.
The custom in naming children In
Japan is for the parents on the thir

child to the temple they attend, and
the father gives three names to the
priest, who writes each on a piece of
p:iler. These are then shuffled about
with certain incantations and thrown
up in the air. The first that falls is the
one chosen. Tills is then written by
the priest on a consecrated piece of pa

it so many times that I don't laugh at
it any more, but it must be funny to
casual oulookers. After this when your

trying to relight them. Then you will
stand a fair chance of securing another
light and at the same time put a kink

Once when traveling in the north of
Ireland, an Englishman of letters
chanced upon a small town which, to
his surprise, he found extensively filled
with announcements of a concert at
which Mme. Patti was to appear.
The price of admission to the back of
the hall being the extremely moderate
one of threepence, he hastened to si
cure a seat. After a long interval of
waiting, the manager stepped forward.
"'Ladies and gentlemen, I regret to
say that Mme. Patti is unable to ap
pear tonight. In order, however, to
save you from disappointment, I have
arranged that Miss Arabella Jones of

Decline nnd Fall of Corn Bread.
It seems to us that our own people
are not the great corn bread eaters
they used to be. Batter or egg and
certnin cakes are still in vogue, but
the honest and homely corn ione, tho
corn dodger and the hoecake are not
as popular as they used to be. As for
the ash cake, the cooking of it has be
come a lost art almost.
We charge this change, in part at
least, to the introduction, even in most
country homes, of the modern cooking
stove and range. It takes a great big
open fireplace and a southern negress,
with a red bandanna on her head, to
make prime corn bread. Nor will any
