FAIR YIZT FICKLE APRIL.

"Unfold Iri s Slonth" of the Year.
Sturdy Marc 1 with its bluHteroos winds'
Is numbered 'rith the days that are no:
more. April pisses gayly over the ways of!
the world. Sh e smiles upon the earth, and
the wind grows soft and sometimes even'
balmy; she wps for very joy, and she!
looka beautiful in her tears. Fair yet!

this season. It is first the sun and thenl

But neither shade nor sunshine standeth Tor l
moment s ill.
But one is iiot inclined to deplore this'
uncertainty. We are more ready to ex-j
claim. "Oh, the lovely fickleness of an'
April day!" And we say this all the more'
readily when we consider how helpful this!
variableness is to the after days. For as1

sister April, "if you do not cry and shed
your tears and make a little stir, my flow

every tear is answered by a blossom, and
every murmuring sigh is b'entled with
laughter and song. ,

Amid all tais fickleness there is the sat-!
isfaction of knowing, if the common pro-'
verb goes fcr anything, that with "a cold

parts they look for the montb to wear a

without a frosty crown." But hope waits
upon the flowery prime, and oftener than
otherwise t je bursting buds and the un !

First Botanical Garden of Europe."
Theoldett botanical gardens in Europe'
are those founded by the republic of Venice
at Padua i:i 1545. A visitor to them writes
in Popular Science News: "Some of the
trees in the gardens of Padua have a world
wide reno'vn; for instance, the Platanus
oricntalis, from Asia Minor, planted in the
year 1G80. Though the trunk is hollow
the tree flourishes, and covers a wide area
with its tpreading branches. Also the
Vitex agnus cast us, planted in 1550, and
a super!) palm, planted in 1585, and
once visited and described by Goethe.
This palm from Africa has had a house
built about it to protect it from sudden
changes ol the temperature. It is the most
beautiful, graceful species of palm. It
does not grow from one long trunk,
crowned v-ith its waving leaves; but just
as the fr nils of a fern spring from the
ground, ench one making its part of the
beauty of the whole root, so does this palm,
which, upspringing in twelve separate
trunks, ms to shower its waving leaves
about thi; mossy brown of the stems, the
tallest being some thirty feet high and the
lowest leaves within three feet of the
Dri ration of tbe Word Dollar.
Few persons are probably acquainted
with the derivation of the word dollar.
The Industrial World states that it is from
the Gem an thai (valley) and came into use
in this w y some 300 years ago. There is a
little silver mining city or district in north-'
ern Bohania called Joachimsthal, or Jo
achim's valley. The reigning duke of the
region authorized this city in the Sixteenth
century to coin a silver piece which was
called "jMchimsthaler." The word "joa
chim" was soon dropped and the name
"thaler" only retained. The piece went
into general use in Germany and also in
Denmark, where the orthography was
changed to "daler," whence it came into
English, and was adopted by our fore
fathers ivith some changes in the spelling.
The Origin of Hospital.
Regar ling primitive institutions for the
care an 1 cure of the sick and wounded.
The Laiicet has stated that hospitals ex
isted in India as early as the Fifth century,
B. C. In Ceylon, according to the English
orientalist. Tumour, King Pandukabhayo
establis led a hospital in his palace, and
one of b is successors, King Dutthagaminl,
in the Second century, B. C, established
eighteen such institutions in as many dif
ferent 1 jcalities, with a medical Btaff for
each and the remedial agents of those
days. 1 he Buddhist king, Asoka, as shown
by Dr. Buhler, had about the year 250,
B. C, 1 ospitals both for man and animals.'
There were doubtless many other founders
of host itals whose name are lost.
A Belgian's Estimate.
I perceive that when a Flemish shop
keeper baa realized a little money over the
neoessi Jes of life, hesay3 to himself, "Now,"
I will buy a picture." The German nnder
the same circumstances says, "Now, my
son sh Ul learn another language." The
America says. "Now, I will aee the
world." The Englishman says, "Now, I
will hjive salmon, though it is four shil
lings a pound."
The Hairs of One's Bead.
It hi been stated that 400 hairs of aver
age thickness would cover an inch of sur
face. One estimate gives the blond belle
about 140,000 filaments to comb and brush, 1
while the redheaded beauty has to be
satisfied with 88,000; the brown haired
damsel may have 109,000; the black haired
but K 2,000.
"As "Blind as a Mole."
A German naturalist is said to have'
demonstrated that moles have eyes and.
can see as well as other animals. If this
be so. the phrase, "as blind as a mole":
must take its place henceforth among the'
myth of the past.
