Great Fathers Who Gave to the
World Great Sons.

Its New Home
An allusion by Henry W. lacy, an
rate Jndga of contemporary notables,
to Winston Spencer Ch archill as a born
parliamentarian In 'whom the genius
of his father, Lord Randolph Churchill,
lives again and who may yet prove to
overshadow the fame of Lord Ran
dolph, even as William Pitt eclipsed
the renoxrn of Lord Chatham, moves
Thomas McCaleb, In the New York
American, to say:
' "We are prompted by these allusions
to ask ourselves the well worn query.
Is genlua transmissible? And, though
the most authoritative latter day dic
tum of science answers In the nega
tive, there are not a few noteworthy
exceptions that Involuntarily occur to
"Might we not, first of all, cite from
among the ancients such fathers and
sons respectively as Philip of Macedon
and Alexander the Great, Damllcar
and Hannibal, Marcus Junius Brutus
and Lucius Junius Brutus, Vespasian
and Titus? Also we find genius resi
dent both in Pepin and his offspring,
Charlemagne, to which case might be
added, did space permit, the few great
medieval English kings who were also
the sons of great kings. Nor should
we omit to mention the poets Bernardo
Tasso and his progeny, Torquato Tas
80 ; also the great Nicholas Bacon and
the still greater Francis Bacon. In
deed, the list might be multiplied to an
appreciable figure by taking an ex
tended tour in universal biography.
There are, besides, quite a number of
fathers and their sons possessed of
such extraordinary talent that they
might, by slightly stretching a point,
be likewise called men of genius.
"In the biographies of greut Germans
we see this fact especially creeping out
now and then, and in France, to men
tion only three cases, we find genius
exemplified in such a sire and offspring
as Etienne Salnt-IIiluire Ceoffroy and
Isidore Saint-IIilaire Geoffroy, as La
zare Ilippolyte Carnot and Sudi Carnot
and as Alexandre I'umas ptre and
Alexandre Dumas Els.
"Quite rich in illustration of the ap
parent hereditary transmission of gen
ius is the list among Englishmen.
Here, confining our examples to those
whose fame belongs to the last cen
tury, we may select at random such
names as Kir William Herscbel and
Sir John Frederick Williiiiu Ilerschel,

A Brush Runabout covered 100 miles at a cost of only 39 cents
in an economy contest among 109 Brush cars
The average cost of the' 100 miles run
by the other 108 cars was less than 66
cents. This contest was held in 109
cities, over all kinds of roads.
A Detroit Corporation has a Brush
that has covered more than 21,000 miles
and they say it is still as good as new.
This Brush took the place of two horses

Moorish palace of Sultan Abu Takub
Yussuf at Seville known today as the
Alcazar contains one of the most
elaborate practical Jokes extant. When
in a gay mood some Important mer
chant or notable of Seville would re
ceive a pres.-.g Invitation summoning
him to the presence. In a fever of de
lighted expectancy the flattered guest
would don his whitest raiment and hie
him to the palace.
There he would be ceremoniously
conducted to the gardens and directed
up the long, avenue. But, alas, half
way up it he would inevitably tread
upon a moving flagstone resting upon
a spring, and immediately countless
fine Jets of water would gush ou of
the ground and from the surrounding
shrubbery and drench him. Amid the
Jeers of the courtiers the luckless and
bedraggled wight would beat an un
dignified retreat Before he was al
lowed to leave the palace, however, he
was sworn to secrecy on pain of death.
At all costs nothing must make tha
joke fall flat when repeated.
The treacherous flagstone has been
removed, and today the visitor may
pass with impunity, but a peseta to
the head gardener will usually cause
the fountains to play. Not many peo
ple know of their existence, however.
The water is sprayed through hun
dreds of tiny pipes, so small as to be
almost invisible, which are placed In
the cracks between the flagstones.

By and Large.
A correspondent asks, "Where did the
fool expression 'by and large come
from, and what does It mean?" It is
scarcely foolish, for the mc who In
vented the phrase were the great sail
ors of the past, and by and large they
opened a new world for folk to whom
the speech of adventure is a closed
volume. To sail "by" Is to sail as close
to the point from which the wind
comes as the chip's lines will allow
and as skillful steering will permit.
To sail "large" Is to sail with the wind.
Together they include all possible
points of sailing. Therefore "by and
