Primitive Peoples Had Ingenious Means of Making Fires That An. swered the Same Purpose. Two tm i hulls of making tire were In use imii? '.be aborigines of North Airerica in the lime of the discovery. The MM method consisted of striking :i spark from Hint and pyrites a hard "re containing usually considerable iron. This method was practiced by llie Eskimos and by the Athupasca and Algonquin tribes ranging across t lie continent from the Pacific coast to Newfoundland and down the Atlan tic coast. The most valued and most effectual method of making fire known to the Indians was that Of the reciprocating motion of wood on wood and Igniting the ground off particles through heat generated by friction. The Blmplest method was to whirl rapidly backward and forward a wooden rod or drill. The drill turned in u lower piece of wood which may be called the hearth. The drill was worked near the border of the hearth, cutting a socket. From the socket a narrow canal w4Acut In the edge of the hearth, the function of the canal being to collect the pow dered wood ground off by the friction of the drill, as within this wood meal the heat rose to the Ignition point.

The Meanest Man. Many years have passed since Mark Twain died, and the greatest tribute to his genius is that no humorist has arisen to take his place. Opinions differ as to which was his funniest story, but there ure those who think that Ills yarn about the meanest man is not easily beaten.
