Todav our great ellies show propor

In the "Retrospects" of Professor
William Knight of the University of
St. Andrews are some Interesting anec
dotes. Among these is a bit from a let
ter by Dr. Mnclagan. who attended
Thomas Carlylo during Carlylo' s last
years: "My personal experience of Car
lylo was tliis: He was the most courte
ous man I ever met. Never once did
that old man fall to rise up to receive
mo nor allow me to leave his room
without walking to the door with me
while ho had strength to do so. After
death all the ruggodness nnd the wrin
kles disappeared from his face. But
for the beard it was like that of a wo
man, so delicate and beautifully mold
ed It was."

People nre more likely to catch cold
In the back than they are generally
aware of, and If neglected it may prove
a serious matter. Tho back, especially
between the shoulders, should always
bo kept well covered, and never lean
with your back against anything that
is cold. Never sit with tho back In a
direct draft, and when warming It by
tho lire do not continue to keep the
back exposed to tho heat after It has
become comfortably warm. To do so
is debilitating. Journal of Health.
How Cnrlyle Talked.
I have heard Carlylo pour forth n
continuous stream of Impassioned dec
lamation for more than an hour at n
time, and so keen wero his charac
terizations, bo felicitous his arrow
shots of criticism, ho rich his sntlre, ho
intense his patriotic sympathy with
all that belonged to national life nnd
character, that no listoner could wish
tho wonderful utterance to cense.

Why they worship .snakes Is a problem
that has been frequently discussed to
no particular purpose, lint people who
worship owls, biits, lobsters, ruts and
mice will worship anything, and per
haps snake worshipers are so common
merely because snakes are so widely

In 17T7 It was written Into tho con
stitution of Vermont that "the house
of freemen of this state shall consist
of persons most noted for wisdom and
virtue, to be chosen by ballot, by the
freemen of every town In this state."
Time and conditions have lowered
our standard. We are content with
average wisdom and average virtue,
nnd In years of apathy virtue and wis
dom are quite forgotten, and we elect
whom tho machine nominates. Rot
tlon In ofllcc, party control of nominat
ing machinery, the ambitions of cor
porations and of party leaders these
are the forces that move the pawns on
tho legislative chessboard. Under the
political conditions which the majority
of the voters tolerate can we expect
the legislature of a state to bo com
posed of tho best men of the com
munity? And we know that the real
danger of the democracy is tho with
drawal of intelligent and humble men
from public duties. S. P. Orth in Atlantic.
Druid money expresses one of the
many plausible ways of refusing to
pay at all, so common to all peoples.
It Is the exact equivalent of the Ro
man phrase to pay on the Greek cal
ends, which meant never, as the Greeks
had no calends. Patricias says of the
Druids that they constantly received
money which they promised to return
in another life. Butler in "Hudlbrns"
refers to this:
Like money by tho Druids borrowed,
In t'other world to bo restored.
The same tricks are played in the
eastern as in the western world, for

certain priests of Peking who barter

to be paid in heaven a hundredfold.
Avoiding n Qnnrrrl.
On one occasion when Interposing in
a quarrel Lord North observed that
there was often far too much readi
ness to take offense. "That Is not my
case," ho added. "This very evening
ono member who spoke of me describ
ed mo as 'that thing called a minister.'
Well, to be sure," continued Lord
North, hero patting his ample sides, "1
am an unwieldy thing. The honorable
member therefore when ho called me
'a thing' said what was true, nnd I
could not bo angry with him. But
when ho ndded 'that thing culled n
minister' he called me that thing which
of all things ho himself wished most to
be, and therefore I took It ns a compliment."
There is nothing llko taking scandal
