No more original and picturesque
idea has ever been evolved in educa-j
lional methods than that which the
October Itcview of Itcviews brings to
the fore in its pair of articles on the
llevival of the Historical Pil prim aire.
Lyman P. Powell speaks of the Amer
ican renaissance of this movement,
while Mr. Stead is overflowing in his
enthusiasm for it as an F.nirlish in
stitution. In general the idea of an
historical pilgrim is to gat her in a
jrronp others of his kind and to make
excursions over an appointed
itinerary to those places in
lii s country when; frreat histor
ical events have happened. There
lie studies the environments of
those historical landmarks at first

man of the party who is peculiarly
fitted to treat of" the the subject. Mr.
Powell, after telling of the various
pilgrimages that other folks in other
times have made, gives a most allur

A Castle Goes Decginc.
Hedin;;haui castle, with its 2,000 acres
of land in the Colne valley, was offered
for sale at the mart. The most interest
ing feature of the property is the mag
nificent Norman keep, an almost ierfect
Bpeciineu. Queen Matilda, wife of King
Stephen, is reported to have died in the
castle, which was the stronghold of the
Earls of Oxford from the conquest, and
in the reign of King John it sustained
two siegos. Unfortunately not all the
historical associations combined could
call forth a single bid, and it had to be
withdrawn. Loudon Telegraph.

A singular fatality seems to attach to
the chair of English literature in the
State university in this city. Professor
Milliken, the first incumlient, held it
four years and died. Ho was succeeded
by Professor Short, who also lived just
four years. Professor A. H. Walsh, who
next took the chair, died exactly upon
the completion of his fourth year of serv

The Moon as We See It.
Did yon ever stop t consider the fact
that the inhabitants of this earth have
never seen but one siue of the moon, and
to inquire the reasoas why such is the
case? The explanation is this: The moon
makes one revolution on her axis in the
same period of time t'aat she takes up in
revolving once aromul the earth, thus
the same geographical region of the lunar
surface is alw ays tow ird us. As one ex
planation usually calls for another, it
may not be out of pi; ce to mention the
fact that the reasons he two motions of
the moon above referred to so nearly
coincide are thse:
The moon is not .i true globe, but is
very elliptical in fom.. It did not in all
probabilities orginally start ou its axial
rotation with procisclvthe same velocity
with which it moved arov.nd the earth,
but the very best astronomers say that
the two motions were not far apart in
the st:'.rt. Assuming t'.i.'t the moon was
serai-liquid or at l-'a-t s 'ft in those re
mote days, the earth's attraction caused
the lunar surface t- c onnate, aud in the
untold ages which f?' lowed its axial ro
tation, owing to the rttractive influence
of both the earth and th sun. was made
to correspond with its orbital movement
around the earth. St Louis Republic.

While discussing the matter of the
troubles and trials of banking business
of today President Junes Espy of the
Ohio Valley Xational bank said to a
group of friends: 'T t ll you that we do
not know anything ab"nt the jieculiari
ties of the banking business. I have
heard officials of the bank when I was lie
ginning in the business rehearse-the expe
riences in early bankii. g in Virginia. As
is well known, the resi lents of that state
were not much given to business tactics.
Whenever they had o casion to issue a
note, and it was qtrito frequent, the bank
officials had to drive round to the vari
ous farms, or to the place where the
maker lived, and it wi s quite difficult to
get them to sign the original, but mnch
more so a renewal. Experts got so they
could tell whether the note was renewed
in the house or in the lield. as they could
tell whether it was written on the pim
mel of a saddle or at a regular desk."

Wedged In a Jvewer Pipe.

in diameter. About dusk a crowd of
children, among them Mamie Kaylor.

grew tame, and some one of them thought
there was more excitement in playing
"hide and seek." Little Mamie Kaylor.
like the other children, would crawl into
the pipes and hide. After the game had
proceeded for some time it was noticed
by the other children that Mamie was
missing. While they were searching for
her they heard muffled screams from the
interior of one of the sections of pipe.
Running to it, Mamie was ifliscovered
wedged in. In crawling in she hail
doubled a leg, and the knee joint and foot
became wedded. The other children tried
to release the pirl by pullicg. but their
efforts only added to the pain she was
enduring as w 11 us to tighten the hold
of the pipe.
