Hawk Xotpi u Very Old Feature.
It is a mistake to suppose that the
hawk nose is confined to Hebrew own
ers, though the persistence of the qual
ities which it indicates makes it most
frequent in the race which it principally
adorns. A pictorial addition to the his
tory of these noses was recently discov
ered in a graphic caricature drawn hy
the clerk of the court on the edge of a
fifteenth century record, of a plaintiff
whose nationality the least expert "nas
ologists" would have at once detected,
without the legend, "Aaron Alius dia
Loli," which the artist had been at pains
to inscribo beneath it. But the "hawk
nose" is at least equally the possession
of the Syrian and the Syrian Arab, as it
was of the Phoenician of old all shrewd,
money getting races.
Vespasian possessed it in perfection,
and though it is news to us that when
young he "retrieved his ruined fortune
by horse dealing, a science always no
torious for its unscrupulous dealing and.
sharp, dishonest practice," he was de
scended from a thoroughly business par
ent and bequeathed his carefulness in
money matters to his son Titus. Lon
The "Basin" of an Applo.
One end of the apple bears the name
of "basin" and contains the remnants
of the blossom sometimes called the
eye of the fruit. This part of the applo
is deep in some varieties and shallow and
open in others. This is the weakest point
in the whole apple as concerns the ques
tion of the keeping quality of the fruit.
If the basin is shallow and the canal to
the core firmly closed, there is much less
likelihood of the fruit decaying than
when it i3 deep, and the evident opening
connects the center of the fruit with the
surface. Professor B. D. Halsted in
Popular Science Monthly.
To Cleanse the System

Snch a Thing as Too Much Dignity.
It is all very well for a traveling man
to bo on his dignity, but if he overdoes
It he is apt to encounter the fall before
which, we are told, pride goeth. When
I first went on the road, I had a mortal
objection to the word "drummer" and
resvtted the term whenever applied to
me. On my second journey I called upon
an old fashioneil merchant in a Texas
town whose name was on our books and
to whom my predecessor had always sold
large bills. I introduced myself with a
good deal of dignity and handed him my
"Oh, you're 's new drummer," re
marked the old gentleman in a some
what patronizing tone. I was nettled
considerably, and correcting him said:
"No, I am their traveling man. I am
not a 'drummer.' "
The merchant was quite as good at
repartee as I was, and looking at me
half in pity and half in contempt he
said with a sneer, which he made no at
tempt to disguise:
"Oh, that's so, is it? Well, I was look
ing out for 's drummer, but if you
ain't he I've nothing for you."
No amount of persuasion or apologiz
ing had any effect on the old gentleman,
to whom the representative of a rival
house sold a first class bill the same aft
ernoon. The lesson was not thrown
away on me, and now a man can call
me a Hottentot, provided he accompa
nies the salutation with a good order.

A Gigantic Tombstone.
One of the largest tombstones in the
world is to be found over the grave of a
Georgia hermit named Scarlett, who be
fore he died selected a monstrous gran
ite bowlder, 100 by 250 feet, and directed
that he be buried under it. A small
cave was excavated beneath this minia
ture mountain, Scarlett directing the
work. It remained thus for some years,
and when he died he was entombed
there, and the bowlder remains as his
headstone. New York Recorder.
Duties at Uome Neglected.
Rev. Mr. A , in Felin's Grove, Pa.,
had just commenced his sermon one
Sunday morning when a boy some 8 or
9 years of age got up, and walking
straight up to the minister asked in a
voice loud enough to be heard by the
congregation: "May I go home? I forgot
to feed the pigs." Consent was given,
but the effect upon the minister as well
as upon the congregation was far from
serious. Chicago Herald.
