Even many native New Yorkers do
not know how the Ilovvery came by Its
name, according to the Pittsburg Dis
patch, whic h thus proceeds to their en
lightenment: No less a person than the
famous old one legged Governor Peter
Stuyvesant was responsible for It.
When the city of New Amsterdam
pprang into existence many farmers
from Holland came over to seek their
fortune in the new world, among them
old Peter. They settled outside the
town and proceeded to develop the
land by clearing away the woods and
planting it with grain, fruit trees and
ornamental shrubs they had brought
with them. Peter Stuyvesant called
his residence and grounds the Fou
werie, and the lane connecting it with
New Amsterdam became known as
rtouwerie lane, the settlement itself
taking the name of Iiouwerie village.
Stuyvosant's farm extended from the
junction of what is now TIdrd and
Fourth avenues to Seventeenth street
and eastward to Second avenue, where
at the corner f Tenth street Ids home
LdokIi and Grow Fat.
"Laugh and grow fat" is an old say
ing, and there is more than a little
truth In it. asserts a doctor. "The con
vulsive movements which we call
laughter exert a very real effect upon
the bodily framework. They cause the
arteries to dilate, so that they carry
more blood to the tissues of the body
and the heart to beat more rapidly, so
that the flow of the blood through the
vessels is hastened. In other words,
laughter promotes the very best condi
tions for an increase of the vital
processes; the tissues take up more
nutritive material and the waste prod
ucts are more promptly removed. A
good laugh sends an increased Dow of
blood to the brain; this immediately
causes that insUument of thought to
work better, with the result that
gloomy forebodings are sent packing."
Words and I draw.
Definite words are necessary for the
expression of definite ideas; hence sci
entific terms have to l employed. A
term has one definite meaning which
does not change with time. The rush
of affairs drifts words from their orig
inal meanings, as ships drag their an
chors in a gale, but terms sheltered
from common use hold to their moor
ings forever. The word "let." for ex
ample, has drifted In "J00 years from
meaning "hinder" until now it means
"lenuit," but the term ' bisect" has re
inaitied unaltered in significance for
centuries. Engineering Uecord.
Children and Play.
Play distinguishes the Ligher from
the lower animals, and it signifies pos
sibility of education. Fishes do not
play at all. the lower mammals can
hardly be taught to play, and birds are
entirely devoid of the instinct. But the
kitten and the lamb ate essentially
playing animals. The human young,
however, are the true players, and in
reality it is play that develops them In
to manhood. "Children." says Dr.
Hutchinson, "are Iwrn little amorphous
bundles of possibilities and are played
