'Queer Old Ancient Methods Are Still

Chinese hold that the art of printing
was discovered in China about fifty
years before (he Christian era. Until

cloth cut in the form of leaves. The

WISHING AND GETTING.
An Old Man's Realized Day Dream and
the Moral It Teaches.
They had started in the most primi
tive way, the man and his wife, back
in the little log house, but they were
dreaming of the day when they would
own a farm of their own and not have
to work so hard. After a time their
hard toll was rewarded, and they own
ed i farm. Then it seemed desirable
to add to this tract, and they worked a
little harder. A new house seemed a
necessary accompaniment to the large
farm, so the work could not stop.
A son came to the age when lie must
be educated and have his chance in

the old man dreamed of the days ahead
when he could stop work and take life

or lie did not recognize them when
they came, for he kept on working un

fort and attention. But lie was quiet
and sad, sitting with head bowed on
his toll worn hands.
A neighbor, stopping in for a little
visit, asked, "I1ow are you getting

all his sadness burst forth as he an

PRETTY ROUGH SPORT.
The Game of "the Bounding Brothers
of the Bosporus."
Many extraordinary forms of amuse
ment have been devised by army ofll
cers from the earliest times down to
the present (lay, hut none perhaps
have more startling chnracteristies
than the following new aid original
game, which Sir itohert 1Baden-Powel
describes In "Memories of India:"
It was introduced into the mess by
a brother of our colonel, who came to
stay with him. We believed hini to be
it qluet, harmless planter fron lehar,
and so lie seemed throughout the even
ing, both during and after dinner,
when lie remained wateiiig us play
ing the fool in various ways for our
own amusement. But evideitly our
ways did not strike him s original,
and lie therefore Invited us to play
the great game of the bounding iroth
ers of the Ilosporus, and when lie had
once shown us we joined most heart
ily in the sport.
The game had few rules, but a cer,
tain amount of etiquette. The ip
i'aratus consisted of all the furniture,
which was piled in n heap near the
center of the room, and a writing ta
ble. wlieh was plnced a couple of
yards from It. You were expected
then to clap your hands three times
that was the etiquette of the gam&
1then run at the tilei and turn heels
over head on It into the pile of fur
niture, shouting as you did so, "I am
i bounding brother of the Ilosporus!"
That wIs all. It was quite simple,
but how It hurt when you landed on
the upturned legs of i chair or the
side of a table!
