NIPPED N THE BUD. j A Sacred chIaeM Coln. 1 ! ; ;
It Wa m Good Joke, bat His Astronomy
He was a very young man. That waa
shown by the nervena way in which he
fondled the misplaced eyebrow which
his sister termed his mustt che. But there
was a light in his eye which proved that
he realized the seriousnesn of life.
He entered the editor's office in a hes
itating sort of way, whicl. seemed to in
dicate that ho had a pem concealed
tipon his person.
"Well, young man." s lid the editor
after his visitor had been induced to sit.
'what can I do for yon tl is lnominsrV'
I came in to see you about a alwnt
fin idea, sir, that that .tame into my
head this morning while I was while 1
was riding down to my office," replied
uie youtu. -do you care for ideas, sirV"
"unce in awhile we to. the editor
replied. "Of course in t'lese times men
can get along without t hem, but occa
sionally, if they happen to be real and
not ideal ideas, we do not. mind hearing
"Would you mind te linsr mo." the
youth then said, putting his hand in his
inside pocket and half pu'.ling out there-
lrom a small memorandum book, which
no sooner saw the light than it was
ehoved back into daikness again
"wonld yon mind tellint me if there is
any way in which an iden, could be copy-
"Why do yon wish it com-ricrlitoiVr"
the editor asked.
"Well you know I'm new to tlm; idea
business, and I don't know just how
6afe I am in submitting my wares to
to to the people who er to the people
who buy such things. Yon can't sub
mit an idea without giving it away, you
know," he added with a smile, depre
cating the glance of indignation which
even he could see in the editor's e3e.
"Well, what then.' tin rtfd the wield-
er of the blue pencil. "If you jrive vour
idea away, why do yon want it copy-
ngniear Are you an Indian giver?'
The young m.in was startled. This
view of the situation had apparently
never occurred to him be fore, and so
suddenly did it i- unc upon him now that
he did not know whethei to be impressed
by the editor's ln.;ic or to be amused by
"Why" 1k s:::d,and then he stopped.
"I don't know why," the editor ob
served quietly, "tint vmi may submit
your idea to me vith perfect impunity.
1 admit 1 am an r litor, I nt I'm no brig
and, and your ik' shall bo as safe in
my hands as h v.-ould ba if it were
guarded by a phr .n of police armed to
the teeth and backed bv the militia."
"Thank yon," said th visitor, with a
glance of gratitude. " on are very en
couraging. 1 may as wt 11 tell you that
lr you like my idea I m. y have others
indeed 1 desire to havo others, for 1
really think the business is a delightful
one, and I am, oh. so tiled of the lino 1
am in now."
"What is your Hue?"
"I am a messenger fi r a Wall street
firm, but I'd infinitely rather go into
journalism if I could make it pay.
Here, he said, looking nervously about
him to make sure that no one but the
editor was listening i nd letting his
voice drop to a whisper "here is the
scheme. 1 was reading The Times as 1
rode down town this morning, and I
Here he han-1 "d the editor a clipping,
which read as i allows:
Saturn's iun-gs disappear.
Madison, Wis. Accord nc to Professor
Georiffc C. Cornstock, of the Woshbnrn observ
atory, in this city, the phenomenon of the dis
appearance of tho rings of S.vturn has just oc
curred. "Well, what of it?" asked tho editor,
handing the clipping bai-k to the visitor.
"It occurred to mo that wo might
make a joke out of it," tne youth replied
eagerly. Then he smiled as he added.
"You see it, don't you?"
"I can't say 1 do," returned the editor.
"Why, we might havo Upson Downes
meet Chappie Hicks on the street, and
say, 'Ah, Chappie, 1 set by tho papers
that Saturn's rings have disappeared;'
and then Chappie would say, 'Aw. same
old scheme to advert se a 6tar eh?
Pretty good, eh?"
"Fine," returned tho editor sadly
"Only one objection to it. Home idiot
would probably say that Saturn isn't a
star but a planet."
"You wouldn't let a little thing like
that stand in the way of a good joko,
wonld you.' asked the-visitor.
"1 wouldn't, eh? We'l. I just would,
replied the editor. '
"And you think I'd better stay as a
messenger in W all street?
"No; I'd advise you to kill off all the
idiots, and then try the joke business
"But what'll 1 live on meanwhile?"
asked the visitor faintly.
"Cheek," replied the editor. "You
have a face full of it."
And the aspiring hnmtrist passed sadly
out into the day. Harp ;r's Bazar.

A Saered Chinese Coin.
One of the coins of the Chinese Emperor
Kanghi is very much sought after by the
Chinese, who use it in making rings for
the finger. It is slightly different from the
other cash issued under the same emperor,
in the form of one of the characters that
indicate the regnal period. The Chinese
call it "Ixj-han cash," the word Lo-han
being a transcript in Chinese characters of
the Sanskrit word Arhan, "venerable,"
the name applied to the eighteen attend
ants of Buddha, who are frequently seen
ranged along the two sides of the principal
halls in Buddhist temples.
'lne tradition is that while the emperor
was intimately associated with European
missionaries he became imbued with a
feeling of contempt lor Buddhism, and
illustrated this phase of his faith by hav
ing a set of eighteen brass Lo-han images
melted down and cast into cash. This
brass is said to contain considerable por
tion or gold, hence the demand for the cash.
Similar pieces having the inscription filed
so as to resemble the l.o-han cash are often
found on the strings of cash imported by
the Chinese in the United States. Phila
The direction, "CBst thy bread upon the
waters, for thou shall find it after many
days," gained its fitness by applying it to
the method of planting rice in fcgypt.
When the Nile overflowed its hanks, men
sailed upon its waters, scattering rice in
all directions. This sank to the ground,
and after the ebb of the water sprang up
rapidly. The fields of growing grain re
sembled barley, with a look a little like
oats. To make the grain fit for food, after
it ripens, it is shelled and quickly dried.
Chemists show by analysis that rice con
tains a larger amount of fat forming or
heat making proprieties than any other
grain. It would seem, then, that nature
has made a mistake in nourishing a heat
producing food in a part of the world
where those who have to eat it would nat
urally prefer to keep cool. Good House
keeping. The "Navajo rostottice."
A famous rock is the vaselike depres
sion of the "Xavn.jo postofhee," some thir
teen miles from Manuelito.
The story of this la:ter is: Whenever a
Kava jo happens to pa's this spot, if on a
journey of move than isual importance to
himself, as for instance, in pursuit of lost
cattle, or to visit a sick relative, lie pro
cures a stone or pebble of some unusual
shape or color and deposits it in the "post
office" with a wish for the ultimntesuc
cess of his trip. How long this custom has
been in vogue anion v' this tribe no one can
tell, but some idea of its antiquity may lie
derived from the fact that the "post office"
now contains not less than 30,000 of these
"lucky stones," and many have been scat
tered and displaced and some have lieen
used many times. Uoldihwaite's Geo
