"EXECUTED" HIS DEAD BODY
Stern Decree of Justice Carried Out on Corpse of Ancient Dalmatian Archbishop. Dnlmntla litis made rapid strides In science nnd literature, the story of her culture, however, being one of. per sonal achievement rather than public advancement. Zara, Its largest city, for example, had no printing press un til 1700, while Venetian Dalnmtla had only one public school In the eighteenth century. Itoger Joseph Boscovltch, one fa mous son of Dalnmtla, was esteemed by scientists for his work setting forth a new atomic theory, but more popu larly known becauso of the ndoptlon of his plan for assuring the upright ness of the dome of St. Peter's atRomo when a crack was discovered In It. Do wroto verso voluminously, but not as successfully as ho wrote his numerous scientific treatises. Marco Antonio de Domlnls, another Dalmatian of public note, mingled the ology nnd natural philosophy with serious consequences to himself. Ho set forth the first correct explanation of the rainbow, but his theological career was less fruitful. As archbishop of Spalato he attacked his superiors In his writings, fled to England, re turned to Rome, then did penance by writing a book refuting his heretical works. He was tried, but died befora tho trial ended. The trial went on and he was sentenced to bo dragged through the streets of Rome and hurncd publicly. Ills body was re moved from his coffin and the sentence sxecuted. A Fair Guess? Teacher r what battle did Gen. Wolfe, when hearing of victory, cry, "I die happy?" Johnny I think it was his last bat tle. Boston Transcript. PUBLIC SALE!

Did you know that If you lived In Scotland all salt cellars In the house must he full on New Year's day, etao the household will suffer waut during the year? That Is not the only superstition peculiar to Scotland. Tho country Is full of them. For Instance, the High land nurses believe that If an Infant's feet are put In snow ho will never have colds during his life. A regular prac tice among the farmers used to be the placing of honeysuckle branches In their cow houses on May 2 to keep their cattle from being witched. A bad storm Is prophesied when n cnt frolics about a room. If the cat washes Its fnce with Its paws before the fire, the coming day will be rainy. Romance Beloved by All. Romance kills the villain In the fifth net and produces the betrothal as the curtain falls. By It Homer got his dally bread In the Greek pities, nnd by It the movie houses earn their prof Its. Each of us has been soldier, lover, explorer nnd "all tho thousand things that children are." For the same reason thnt romance commnnds j the greatest audiences, dime novels ! nnd best sellers pour out from the j presses. No man can elbow Clark Russell Into oblivion except some more ' thrilling writer of sea tales. And 1 every age must have Its Shnrlock Holmes. For the human mind must spend many months on the seven seas nnd many more In Intimate relations with Scotland Yard. Made Her Blink. Mrs. Church What's the matter with your eyes? Mrs. Gotham Why?

LANGFOIU), Clerk i JUST PIE By ALICE PIERCE. (, mo, by McClure Newipaper Syndicate.) In these days when tho nvcrago edi tion of a city dally contains In one col umn such n startling Item as tho suc cessful flight of nn nlrplnnc ncross the ocean and In the next records tho safe delivery of a deceased aunt's remains to Mr. Ulnnk, of Ulnnktown, via parcel post, at tho trilling cost of forty-three cents, we aro compelled to describe Phoebe Ilurlburt as an nnachronlsm. Long ngo, when tho whalers set sail from the llttlo port, Phoebe's grand mother made most wonderful pies. Phoebe makes them Just as delectablo nnd by the same reclpo. Not tho most noted man of science can sug gest one Improvement In the pies the old New England housewives con cocted. Phoebe didn't try, nnd there in lay her success. Phoebo Ilurlburt occupied a placo In tho sun not too close to forty nt the time her romance began. Cousin .Tnno was close behind. Jane had all along Intended It to be her own romance; but, somehow, In the last act the cues got twisted and John Bollnyre walked Into the Ilurlburt kitchen 'Where Phoebe, In an Immaculate calico house dress, was In tho net of removing from the oven two crispy, fragrant apple pies, Instead of Into tho orchard where Jane hnd staged herself In an act worthy of Belasco himself. John stay ed In the kitchen to have a sample, served with clotted cream, and stayed so long thnt finally Jane, all unassist ed, climbed down from tho tree In which she was precariously seated. It had been along about Christmas time when Jane met John Bellnyre. He hnd been the guest of honor nt a so-called Sunday morning breakfast party. As a matter of fact both "morning" nnd "breakfast" were mis nomers, for tho guests assembled at one o'clock, and what they had to eat was a rather elaborate luncheon. Jane had written her country cousin all about It and had kept her Informed of tho progress of tho friendship. Jane liked to be called "clever," and It was with that adjective that tho other women present nt the breakfast described her manipulation of John Bcllayre. But to do Jane justice she was an attractive woman, and Bel layre didn't need much managing to drift into a close friendship. Phoebe usually listened In on the conversations, now and then surprising everybody by putting In a brightly In telligent comment In exactly the right place. She presided over the house cool, competent, Immaculate. But to all Invitations to visit in the city she returned a polite but final declination. She didn't like cities. It was here In the charming old New England village thnt Jane had planned that the crowning event of her llfo should take place. John Bcllayre was dramntlc critic for one of the city dal lies, lie knew many desirable people and he was himself an extremely lik able man. Jane calculated that her oft-repeated statement that she would not give up her freedom before she reached the age of thirty-five would help, rather than hinder. Men pre ferred to have some obstacles to over come It tickled their masculine vnn Ity. It didn't suggest Itself to Jane to take into consideration the fine sense of vnlues which a dramatic critic must possess to tnke him high in his pro fession. It never occurred to her thnt she looked as nn orchid would were It used In tho stage setting of tho "Old Ilomestend." She merely noted ensu ally that John seemed to enjoy sitting on the veranda where Phoebe was al ways to be found In the afternoon with her crocheting. He would sit there lazily by the hour, hardly speaking at all. Jane usually spent those hours In rest. On the Inst evening of her guests' stay some restless Impulse, foreign to her plncld nature, drove Phoebe to the kitchen. She explained to her mother thnt It promised to be hot tomorrow, and so sho guessed she would do some baking before she went to bed. She hnd heard Jane's words to John Hel lnyre as her cousin went upstairs di rectly after the early supper. "I have some notes to write, John; I will meet you In the orchard at half-past seven." Then, nt seven, she had seen her cousin steal out of tho side door ar rayed lp u pale mauve gown, one Phoebe hnd never seen before and which struck her as almost Indecent In Its daring simplicity. John Bcllayre caught n whiff of the fragrant odor of steaming apple pie as ho started down the path toward tho orchard. Without in the least an alyzing his own motives, ho retraced his steps, opened the kitchen door nnd walked In. If It Is true that tho way to a man's heart Is through his stomach, It Is equally true that every wotnnn Is nt heart a horn flirt even the most placid. Anyway, when Jane returned to tho house, after maintaining to no purpose her precnrlous position In tho apple tree, when It had grown too dark for tho simple lines of her rnnuvo gown to show to their best ndvantngo against the green of tho tree, sho found John Bellnyre and Cousin Phoebe seated sldo by side on tho kitchen steps, planning for tho futuro together I When a mutual friend asked Jane rather frankly, somo tlmo later, what thoro was about thnt country cousin of hers to lntorcst such u brilliant crit ic as John Bellnyro, Jnno answered, rather sarcastically, wo must admit: "Jufrt pie." THEY TOOK HER LITERALLY But Probably Musical Comedy Star Did Not Mean Just What She Threatened. A popular musical comedy stnr was taking her summer vacation In a Now England village this year, and good nnturedly agreed to participate In an "entertainment" to be given at the town hall for the benefit of local char ities. She procured from New York one of the costumes from her last win ter's show, and a fetching poster show ing herself In that slime costume. Soon after tho poster was on display a dele gation of village ladles waited upon the committee of gentlemen who were engineering the entertainment and pro tested against tho chic costume of tho poster, which was, In fact, that of the conventional "prince" of musical com edy, with a frank If plenslng display of silk-encased limbs. "Lot's send for Miss de Lnncy nnd see If we enn't tlx it up," a commit teeman suggested, and this was done. Now. besides being good nntured, Miss de Lnncy Is high-spirited, nnd rather thought that tho costume which hnd been good enough for her to ap pear In for some hundreds of times In New York would do for one nppenr nnce In Hlcksvllle. "There Is no use talking," sho an nounced with decision, "I'll appear In that costume or nothing 1" There was a moment of horrified si lence, then quick whispering among tho lady delegation, nnd a moment Int er their protest against the proposed costume wns withdrawn. Phllndelphln Ledger. COSTS MONEY TO RUN ZOO Pets of Londoners Are Really Expen sive Propositions In the Feed ing Line. now much does It cost now to feed nn elephant for a year? Two thousand dollars, say the officials of the London zoo. And n giraffe costs half as much. So thnt, with tho Increnscd prices of food, have come new problems for tho keepers of menageries. The meat foods Include beef, horse flesh, guinea pigs, rats, cats, mice, rnbblts, frogs, snnkos, fish, pigeons, ducks, sparrows, gentles, snails, ants and cod liver oil. The ga zelles, buffaloes and nntelopcs must bo provided with rock salt. They are fed on oats, bran, hny, green clover, to gether with carrots nnd potatoes. The birds are the most difficult to feed sat isfactorily. Flamingoes, for Instance, require soaked wheat, boiled shrimps nnd fish cut smnll. Some birds are fed largely on bullock's liver. This Is cut Into slices, boiled, then put through n mincing machine. The mince Is dried In a slow oven and preserved, Tho dry mince Is usually mixed with hrnn or pollard. Quantities of Insects have to be kept In stock for the Insect eating birds. These arc principally meal worms and gentles, which Is the polite name for meat mnggots. But for some birds flies nnd grasshoppers are required. Tho monkeys require fruit, such ns hnnnnns and apples, while the snakes must he fed on smnll nnlmnls, such as rabbits, mice and rnts. New Idea In Storing . Coal. The Ingenious plnn of storing coal In carbonic ncld gas. as undertaken nt Dortmund, Germany, gives tho safety from spontaneous Ignition of under--water storage, while the container of fers the convenience of the overhead bunker. Each of the three cylindrical hunkers constructed, with a capacity of 2,r00 tons, has seinl-spherleal top nnd bottom, and three filling openings nt the top, with throe discharging out lets at the bottom. Tho lower outlets are gas tight when closed, but ns the carbonic ncld ls much heavier than nlr the upper openings do not require being absolutely leak proof. A grab on a structural steel tower unloads the coal from a barge. Tho coal Is dropped Into a small hopper, and then fed to a push-plate conveyor, which Is so placed that It may serve In filling or empty ing the three hunkers. The small amount of carbonic acid gas that leaks out In removing coal can be readily replaced. Fun for the Girl. One evening, coming home from the theater on tho street car with my lady friend, I stopped from the car nnd noticed nn automobile coming up be hind the car. I kept my eye on the automobile and took tho elbow of tho next person alighting nfter me, ex pecting it to be my friend. Still watch ing the motor, I led tho elbow safely to the walk, and then turned my at tention to her. But, to my embarrass ment, who should I find myself escort ing, but n great, tall man, who said In the sweetest voice: "Thnnk you, I wns never escorted by a young man across the street before; you are the kindest fellow I ever met." My lady friend was following us, and she gig gled over the Joko all the rest of tho way home. Exchange. Artificial Tree for Birds. Dr. II. B.
