AN ANCIENT BIT
Probably a Datcli Iuvcntlon of tb?
! Tho history of snsh windows Is some
what obscure, but tho probability Is
that they were n Dutch Invention nml
that they wore Introduced Into Bug?
laud soon after tho revolution of 1088.
The derivation of the word "sash" iu
this sense is tho Dutch "sas," a sluice
old English "snsse." In Queen Anne's
rolgn thoy were yet so comparatively
uncommon ns to bo mentioned as a
special feature of houses that were
advertised as "To let." In the Tatler,
for Instance, No. 178, May 27-30, 1710,
there is this advertisement:
"To bo lett, in Devonshire Square,
near Blshopsgato, a very good Brick
House of 3 Booms of a Floor, and a
good Hall, with very good light and
dark Closets, tho whole House being
well wainscoted, and sash'd with 30
Sash Lights, a very pleasant and con
venient OUlce below Stairs," etc.
From England they pnsscd Into
?France, where the first to put them up
was Marshal do Lorge at his new
houso at Montmartre. Speaking of
this, Lister In 1090 writes in his "Jour
ney to Paris:" "We had the good for
tune hero to find the marshal himself.
He showed us his great sash windows,
how easily they might-bo lifted up and
down and stood at any height, which
contrivance, he said, ho had out of
(England by n small model brought on
purpose from thence, there being noth

everything off. Put on night clothing
that has been thoroughly aired.
When you get up in tho morning,
take off everything again. This Is the
time to take n cold bath, very quickly,
with vigorous rubbing. If for any ren
bou you do not take the cold bath, rub
your skin all over thoroughly with a

It used to puzzle all thinking people
(Why ponds and rivers do not freeze be
yond a certain depth. This depends on
a most curious fact?namely, that wa
ter is at its heaviest when It reaches
40 degrees F.?that Is, 8 degrees above
freezing point. On a frosty night ns
each top layer of water falls to -10 de
grees it sinks to tho bottom; therefore
the whole pond has to drop to 40 de
grees beforo any of it con freeze. At
last it is all cooled to this point, and
then ico begins to form. But ice is n
[very, bad conductor of heat; therefore
It shuts off the freezing air from the
big body of comparatively warm wa
ter underneath. Tho thicker it gets

A certain young fellow received a
government berth, for which he had
to undergo n very strict examination.
Ono day a friend of his who had been
noticing how little work he did to earn
his salary tackled him.
"I say, Walter, my boy," ho began,
"you don't perform a great deal of la
bor, do you?"
I "No, I don't hnvo to."
I "Aren't you expected to work?"
"Of eourso not," was tho candid re

baven't tho nervo to ask a man to do
anything more to earn his salary after

The niul Iinrirnlu That Wns Blutle by
a Kronoil 11pii(In(.
During n recent fostlvul at Neuilly a
young woman attracted tho attention
of a Inrgo crowd by holding u heavy
bar of iron between ucr tooth. Among
thoso who watched her wns a dentist,
and at tho close of, hor performance a
luminous idea came to him, und lie de
termined 10 carry it out.
Going to tho young woman, ho said:
"Mademoiselle, l am a dentist, and
therefore I am more Impressed with
tho ?wonderful power of your jaws
than any one else. Now, I am about
to make a proposition to you. I will
give you S'J?O if you will write a letter
to mo saying that vou do all this work
by the aid of a srl of false tooth which
I havo manufactured for you."
After some thought tho young wo
man replied: "I will accept your offer
on one condition. Vou must first glvu
mo as many dollars as 1 van rai.se from
tho ground with my teeth."
Tho dontlst hesitated a moment and
then said that he would give her In
dollars as many 26 cent pieces us she
could raise, To, this she agreed, and
a few minutes inter tho dentist was al
ums! stupefied when ho saw her raise
a weight which was equal to that of
$10,000. It wns a costly advertisement
for tho dentist.
Th? Old Surf lJadi.
It is not so many years ago when
surf bathing of a very primitive kind
prevailed at the eastern end of Long
I Island and, for aught I know, at olh
I er points. Every Saturday morning or
afternoon, as the tldo willed, through
out tho summer big farm wagons trun
dled down to tho bench and wero
swung around abreast of tho Hue of
breakers. Old llshhouscs served the
purpose of modern bathing pavilions,
and tho sea costumcfa were thoso of
lnst year's village ptreot. A long rope
was drawn from under the seats and
hitched to the wheel, and then some
Sturdy ex-whaler or life crew man In
red flannel shirt and old trousers tied
at tho ankles slipped lib? waist through
the loop at the end of this primitive
life lino and, wading out, kept it as
taut as circumstances permitted, while
tho women and children bung to it and
reveled and wallowed and shrieked,
rejoicing in their "Saturday tub."?
There are times when an honest con
fession of ignorance results to one's
advantage. An examination of history
"wns going on In a high school. Tho
second row of tho scholars looked su
premely contented. They knew what
was coining next and wero confident
of making brilliant recitations. The
professor gravely put tho question:
"What been mo of the Greeks who
wore slain at Thermopjioj?"
Tho first hoy hesitated and then haz
arded, "Burnt 'cm."
"Next," was the icy answer.
"Buried 'em," came from tho second
promptly. "Oh, what an easy one!"
"Don't know," drawled tho third boy
"Right. Nobody does."

then ho crowed a lilt Io. Tho other

An Australian pearl diver says that
ono of tho strange effects of diving Is
tho Invariable bad temper felt while
working at the bottoin\>f the sea. As
this usually passes away as soon as the
surfaco is reached, it Is probably duo
to tho pressure of the air affecting the
lungs and through them tho brain. Tho
exhilaration and good temper of tfio '
mountain climber arc contrary feelings
from nn opposite cause. A diver be
comes so angry at some imaginary
wrongdoing on tho part of thoso in tho
bont nhovo that ho gives tho signal to

knocking tho heads off the entlro crow,"
only to forget what he cunio up for
when tho surfaco Is reached.
