LAND OF EASY DIVORCES.
In the Barbary States It Is "Woman,
Take Thy Goods and Go."
Always over the head of the Arab
woman hangs the shadow of divorce.
Nowhere in the world does the law si?
facilitate the separation of man and
wife as in those lands so fittingly
named the Barbary states.
If an Arab grows tired of his wife's
looks or her actions or her dress, if
he wishes to replace her with another
or if he is weary of married life and
does not wish any wife at nil he does
not need to go to the trouble or nomi
nal expense of divorcing her, but gets
rid of her instead by the simple proc
ess of "repudiation," which consists in
saying to her. "Woman, get thee hence;
take thy things and go."
For the man this is a case of "heads
I win, tails you lose," for, though lie is
free to marry again, the woman is not
and can obtain a legal release only by
returning to him the money which he
paid for her.
Without her husband's consent n wo
man can obtain a divorce only if she is
able to prove that he beats her with
out sufficient provocation, if he re
fuses her food, clothing or shelter or
if she discovers a previous wooing on
her husband's part, for all previous
betrothals or offers of marriage, even
though the lady refused him. constitute
grounds for divorce. Metropolitan
A ROYAL SNUB.
The Czar Handed It to Louis Napoleon
and Got It Dack.
It has been urged by n French au
thor that Napoleon III. entered into
the Crimean war ou the side of Great
Britain because he had been well re
ceived in the London clubs during
his sojourn In that country. Hut there
might liavfc been Another potent factor
independent of the emperor's pleasant
recollections of the English, and that
was the slight to which he was sub
jected by the czar of Russia. Nicho
When Napoleon ascended the throne
as emperor he notified all the reigning
sovereigns of the fact, addressing them
as "Monsieur mon frcre." With the
I exception of the czar they replied

Train the Mind to Number Grouped
Objects at a Glance.
It has always formed a part of the
professional conjurer's education to ac
quire the power of making ins taut
mental note of many objects. A Ger
man advocate of the theory that every
one should cultivate some similar sys
tem of counting bus suggaf ed that the
ability of most persons of distinguish-
ing from three to five objects at a
glance may be so perfected that the
mind will tiud It possible to take not
of at least thirty articles in the same
length of time. This authority, Preyer,
has declared that he can count thirty
objects of the same kind as easily as
other persons can count three or four.
Apart from such usefulness as this
acquired power may impart, the meth
od of teaching it is of interest. The
test of one's ability in counting is easi
ly made by placing several small ob
jects, sin h as pins or coins, under a
sheet of paper and then lifting the pa
per so that one may glance at the ar
ticles and give au immediate guess as
to thtir number.
At first the eye finds it possible to
distinguish only three or four objects,
but practice soon enables the experi
menter to manage any under ten with
facility. Above that number the proc
ess becomes more dilhcult. Conscious
counting is not permitted. The arti
cles must ba merely "valued."
To perfect oneself iu this practice
black spots, forming various geometri
cal figures, may be made upon squares
of white cardboard, the number being
gradually increased and the positions
It is slid that the sensation of a
person practiced in unconscious count
ing when looking attentively at large
numbers of objects is that their num
ber "shoots rapidly through the head."
