Borne of the greatest scholars have
used their learning more as a weapon
than a means of Illumination. Pro
fessor Lewis Campbell's gentleness
and courtesy may be Illustrated by
the following true story: Some years
ago lie was In the chair at a meeting
of the Hellenic society when Dr. Ar
thur Evans described the results of
eome of his first excavations In Crete.
Among bis finds were a number of
seals and other relics showing traces
of affinity with early Egyptian art.
Discussion followed, in the course of
which a venerable admiral, who had
been present at the battle of Navarino,
rose and said that he did not know
whether he was in order, but he would
like to state that In the year 1828,
when he was cruising In the Levant,
he saw a herd of seals off the coast of
Crete a sight which he had never seen
before or since. - The situation was
delicate, but . It was stared by the
chairman, who rose Immediately to
express the thanks of the meeting to
the admiral for his Interesting rem
iniscence. "Here," he said, "we have
another link with Egypt, for all of us
must remember the story In the Odys-
sey of Proteus and his herd of seals
on the Island near the mouth of the
Nile." London Spectator. y

CHURCH TO MAKE LOANS.
St. Louis Paster Plans to Aid Worthy
Needy Who Shun Charity.
The Rev. Jacob E. Meelier. pastor of
the Compton Hill (St. Louis) Congrega
tional church, starts the new year with
innovations that he believes will add
:o the effectiveness of his church and
told the interest of his congregation.
Beginning the 1st of January, the
Compton Hill church operates a lotm
department for the benefit of all
worthy persons, regardless of church
membership, who dislike the idea of
accepting charity. Rev. Sleeker will
not preach a night sermon hereafter
more than once each month. The oth
er Sunday nights will be devoted to
music, art and literature. ' " : ----- '
"Freaching in itself Is, I believe,
greatly overdona these days," he says.
Knocked Out the Pcetry.
James Russell Lowell was dreamily
strolling along towird his home In
Cambridge one unusually beautiful
night. - Slowly, with serene, queenly
majesty, a full moon was ascending
her "azure throne," pouring her lavish
light over all thiDgs and softening into
semblances of beauty even the ugly
outlines of the conventional domestic
architecture around about. Duly illu
minated by the loveliness of the spec
tacle, the poet as he passed by the
house of the estimable brother man
who supplied meat to him regularly
for a slight consideration of profit no
ticed that valuable citizen leaning on
his fence and gazing up In a kind of
It pleased Lowell to think that the
butcher's immortal soul was bathing
itself in the flood of semispirituar
moonlight, and, pausing, he remarked,
"What a beautiful night It Is, neigh
bor!" "Yes, Mr. LowelL I was Just a-think-ln
what a bully night for a slaughter
In' this would be!"
"Of course, of course!" gasped the
poet, beating a hasty retreat.

"Do you believe In hypnotism?"
"I have to."
