' THE WORD PARADISE.
Ita Earliest Meaninjr Was u fn
, closed Pleasure Cronnd.
The earliest "meaning of the word
paradise appears to have been a walled
iu pleasure pround. In the Hebrew It
was "perdes," In the Persian "ferdus,"
and from one or other of these the
Greeks appear to have derived tbo
word "paradcisos," from which we get
our owu word. We also know that the
ancient inouuwdis of Chaldea and As
syria and also of Egypt constructed vast
lnclosures of forest land for the preser
vation of wild animals kept or hunt
ing iurKses, and these were also call
ed paradises. Thus, the historical
meaning of the word conies to this: A
space protected from all Incursion from
the outer world, In which those who
were privileged to enter were able to
indulge iu such pleasures as pleased
their fancy. .
. It is easy to see the translation from
the material to the spiritual meaning,
paradise in the latter sense meaning
the place of the elect or chosen. This
Is strikingly borne out by the fact that
the favorite battlecry of the Moslems,
whose firm belief it is kit those who
die fighting go straight to heaven, was
always "Fight! Fight! Taradise! Para
dise!" And the strong probability is
that they got the word from the Per
sian campaigns of the eighth century.
The use of the word in its present form
iu the New Testament is of Greek
origin, and its description as applied
to the garden of Eden is probably of
Hebrew origin, dating from the period
of the captivity.
A Foreoltrn Statesman.
Why is it that Oliver Ellsworth has
received so little attention from biog
raphers and historians? asks Frank
Gay lord Cook in The Atlantic. He was
not lorn in Massachusetts or Virginia.
Iu Connecticut, like Pennsylvania, the
historic field Las been meagerly tilled.
Moreover, the dramatic and opportune
quality of his work has been perceived
only through the perspective of subse
quent years. To negotiate an unpop
ular convention for a party Just retir
ing from office in defeat and ignominy
Is not conducive to immediate fame.
Nevertheless he has not been wholly
overlooked by subsequent statesmen.
Webster said of him: "For strength of
reason, for sagacity, wisdom and sound
good sense in the conduct of affairs for
moderation of temper and general abil
ity, it may be doubted if New England
has yet produced his superior.".
What he said as chief justice of the
United States to the grand jury at Sa

rights of men and commend a govern

A Witty Reply of Pope.
As narrated by Edward Walford In
his "Greater London," Frederick,
prince of Wales, sometimes visited Al
exander Pope at bis villa. On one occa
sion when the prince was on a visit
Pope, after expressing the most dutiful
professions of attachment, . gave .hj9
royal highness an opportunity of ob
serving very shrewdly that his (the
poet's) love for princes was inconsist
ent with his dislike for kings, since
princes may In time become kings. Said
his royal highness:
"Mr. Tope, I hear you don't like
"Sir, I beg your pardon."
"Well, then, you don't like kings."
"Sir, I must own that I like the lion
best before his claws are grown."
No reply could well have been hap
pier. Cultivate Tact.
Th? average man who curses his luck
because he wasn't born with money to
take advantage of his opportunities
could get all the money lie wants from
people who have it if he had a small
stock of tact. The youth who hasn't
any friends who 'have faith in him
could have an army of them if there
was in his makeup a small stock of
Tact has built more bridges and rail
roads, financed mere banks, created
more public reputations and capped
more achievements than all the ability,
talent and genius in the world. More
subtle than money, it acquires posses
sions at less cost. Surer than brains.
It achieves bigger things with greater
ease. New York Tress.
Linseed tea is good for colds and is
easily made. Put six tablespoonfuls of
linseed and a quart of water into a pan
and boil it for ten minutes. Then pour
it off and add to it some slices of lemon
and brown sugar to taste. If the flavor
of licorice is liked, an ounce of it may
be added. This is a refreshing and use
ful drink, especially for children with
feverish colds, when there is sure to be
much discomfort from thirst.
"What am I so mad about?" repeated
the popular actress, with flashing eye.
I only got three bouquets, that's
what!" - . .

Ill Story of the Origin of a Popu

Bizet, the composer of the world fa
mous opera "Carmen," and .Halevy.
bis librettist, once occupied apartments
whose outer doors opened on the same
landing. As soon as he had finished an
air Bizet would hasten to submit it to
his neighbor, who subjected it to the
most severe criticism. From morning
to night the piano resounded in the
composer's apartments. One night
Bizet finished a dramatic bit in which
he flattered himself he had success
fully sketched the pride of a trium
phant toreador after a successful bull
fight. But Halevy listened in silence
and showed but a moderate enthu
siasm. Bizet, somewhat piqued, asked
the .cause of this coldness.
. "It's good. I admit," said Halevy.
"In fact, it's too good. It lacks move

VNot popular enough!" shouted the
piqued composer. "lo you want to
write for the slums?" He went out in
a huff, but soon relented and in an
hour returned with another air. "Lis

toreador ida written down to your
liopular level." It was indeed the song
of the toreador, and the only one which

The Burmese Game of Chess.
The Burmese game seems to be rath
er a heavy variety of chess, the pecul
iarity of it being that a pawn, "queens"
When it strikes an imaginary diagonal
line drawn from the player's left hand
corner to the riht baud corner in front
pf him his opponent's left baud cor
ner. The pieces are massed on the
player's riht hand, but the three priv
ileged patf us there are only three
allowed to "queen" can only "queen"
when the queen has been taken. We
should say here that no piece equiva
lent to our queen really exislts in east
ern chess, the most jowerfuI piece be
ing equivalent to our rook or castle.
In the Burmese game the privilege cf
translation confers no higher hand on
n piece thMii that of "chekoy" called
queen in European equivalence byvvir
tue of its being unique a piece pos
sessing scarcely more iower than a
pawn. The usual move of the piece
called "queen" In all oriental varie
ties of chess is one square diagonally
and It is never one of the superior
pieces. Loudon Spectator.

1.000 year old and sprouts from its
branches have realized fabulous sums.
Some years ajro a rich Englishman of
fered $250,000 for this entire tree, but
the sum was indignantly refused. This
wonderful plant clings amid thickly
grown moss against-the side of the fa

claimed that it has bloomed perennial

this statement has never leeu disput

is supposed to have been discovered

THE BABY GREBE.
uttful lllrU That Snffern
Help the I-'hkHIoiix.
When you see a woman with a band
of white plumage almost invisibly
tinted with blm and jn-fen and more
strongly with 'hh'si brown .:naiiK-ni-ins
her hat, know that from one to six
of those harmless, lovable, sweet
voiced little grebes were Ft ripped from
thin to vent to supply it. And when
yow ee--that other woman wearing a
eape the collar of which reaches above
her ears and the skirt to her shoulders
and it seems to be made up of almost
indiscernible sections the size of your
hand know that each section stands
for the life of one of those charming
little chatterers. The breast of the
grebe is its curse. Its feathers are so
tiny and fine as to be almost spineless,
so thickly set they stand on end and
so delicately colored as to render ade
quate description impossible. Crested
grebes are killed without mercy for
this little patch of rare feathering,
and the little marsh ones do not es
cape. There is no b:rd slaughter for
plumage more wanton unless it bo
that of the egret, which takes the life
of the brooding bird for a few beauti
ful feathers found on the shoulders
only nt nesting time and loaves the
young to die as they may.
