little questions about the etiquette of the
tabh that some girl wants to know, and
thes. I am going to tell her. She must
hold her knife by its handle and never let
her f ngers reach up to its blade. Whcn
ever t is possible a fork must be used in
place of a spoon, and that same spoon, by
the by, must never lie left in a coffee or
tea ( up, but laid to ret politely and se
turel f in the saucer.
Glasses with handles are la id by them.
A goblet should lie caught by the stem,

Don't butter a large piece of bread and
take biles from it; instead, break your
bread in small pieces, one at a time. and
butte it, that is, if you are eating butter,

gers. Olives, celery, radishes, st rawberriea
with stems and asparagus are all eaten
from he lingers. The old method of eat
ing el ,-ese with a knife has been given up,
a fork being used in iis place. The use of
many small dishes for vegetables is not in
good taste; indeed, ma ny vegetables should
not Ik served at one time. Roth Ashmore

Origin of tlie Arms of Mexico.
The origin of the Mexican coat of arms is
to le found in ancient traditions. The
eagle was the emblem of the primitive
Mexicans, but when Mexican Independence
was overthrown by Spanish conquest new
quarte rings were Introduced, and only so
much of the original symbols remained as
would serve to emphasize the trlory of the
conqui rors. When iTHlfipt lull III i was re
stored a just regard for tradition led to
the rel abilitation of the ancient coat of
The aw of April, 1S25. directed that the
arms s iould be the Mexican eagle resting
on the left claw on the top of a nopal a
plant f the genus cactus. The nopal
grows m a rock in the midst of a lake.
Theeat legraspsa serpent in his right claw,
and is in the act of tearing it to pieces
with it - beak. Two branches, one of lau
rel and the other of evergreen oak, adorn
these a -ms. The allegory thus depicted is
explain id by the following legend:
The y.tecs came from a remote coun
try ca led A.tlan, and after long per
egrins! on rested in fhapultepec. Inas
much as they were afflicted and lieset by
various insidious enemies, who attacked
them with the cunning of serpents, their
priests earcbed for a spot in whi, h they
might establish themselves permanently.
Finally they discovered a point on the
shore ol a lake w here an eagle, perched
Upon a nopal, was devouring a serpent.
This se mod a good omen, and according
ly they ihoee this point, believing that in
so doing they were obeying the will of
their p. Is. They founded there the city
of T.-ns. int it Ian. which today is the most
populous city of Mexico. Montreal Star.

The cot of working a steamship is, in

Age of the Mammoth Trrc,
A correspondent Inquires whether the
celebrated aiifornian tree monsters are
really -,0Oi years old or more, as represent
ed in horticultural works. There is uo
doubt ab ut their being of these great
aires. Sec: ions of the exterior have been
cut into th wood and the annual growths
calculated accordingly, so the exact num
ber of years to produce a half inch has
been defini ely ascertained. Dividing half
the diamel -r of a tree, and multiplying by
these ascer ained facts of annual growth,
the result cives the ages as already given
by those v ho have already pronounced
them of great age. The annual rings in
the one for ning a pavilion floor have lieert
counted and found to number over 1,700.

that a raibl r queer first name."
"What's the matter with it?" growled
the copper. "You wouldn't object to be
