A NIGERIAN LEGEND.
It Tells of the Origin of Man's Sub
jection to Women.
There Is a quaint old Nigerian legend
that relates the origin of man's sub
jection to women.
At the beginning of things, the le
gend runs, the world was peopled by
women only. One day the earth god,
Awbassl Nai, happened by accident to
kill a woman. On hearing this the rest
gathered together and prayed that, if
he meant to slay them, he would bring
destruction on all together rather than
kill them one by one.
Awbassl was sorry for the grief be
had cattsed and offered as compensa
tion to give them anything they should
choose ont of all his possessions. They
begged him to mention what he had to
give and said that they would all cry.
"Yes" when he named the thing they
wished to hare.
Awbassi mentioned one by one all
his fruits, fowls and beasts, but at
each they shouted "No." At length
the list was nearly ended only one
thing remained to offer.
"Will you. then, take man?1 asked
Awbassi at last. "Yes." they roared
In a great shout, and, catching hold of
one another, danced for joy at the
thought of the gift Awbassl was send
ing. Thns men became the servants of
wome'n and have to work fojr them to
The Sense of Humor.
A man has a sense of humor or he
has not. If ho has not be cannot ac
quire it; if he has it by birthright he
cannot lose it with the passing of
years. The only change as life goes
on in one who has this inborn sense is
that different things appeal to it from
those that excited amusement in
youth, bnt in this it is like other
mental faculties. As judgment mel
lows and ripens, so the power of dis
covering those things that ejcite
smiles becomes more discriminating.
Humor is not a physical attribute to
fade as the body loses its' youthful
elasticity, but purely mental. Men
who possess it in goodly measure have
been known to smile on their death
beds over the very comedy of life.
The Flsx Plant.
Linen is obtained from the flax plant,
a. small, delicate annual with a tiny
blue Cower. The plant is pulled by
hand in the summer, the seeds, known
In commerce as linseed, being removed
and the straw subjected to various
processes to separate the fibrous pari
which constitutes the linen. First it is
steeped in water and then passed
through a drying and heating process
on revolving wheels until ail foreign
matter is removed. It is then ready

She Learns, Too.
There had been a family row.
"Well." remarked the alleged head
of the house, "a man learns a few

half of the sketch, "but the school of
experience doesn't bar co-eds." Wash
