Thunder, just because It Is n noise for which there Is no visible cause, has always excited the Imagination of the Unscientific, so It Is natural that tbo most outrageous superstitions about storms should date back to the time when everybody, more or less, was un? scientific. One eld writer explains tbo belief of ills day that "a storm is said to follow presently when n company of hogges runne crying home," on the ground that "a hogge Is most dull nnd of a melancholy nature and so by rea sou doth foresee the ralno that Com? eth." Leonard Dlgges, In his "Prog? nostication Everlasting" (155G), men I (Ions thnt "thunder In the morning signifies wind; about noon, rain, and In the evening, a great tempest." The same writer goes on to say, "Rome write (but their ground I see not) that Sunday's thunder should bring the death of learned men. Judges I nnd others; Monday's, tbo death of women; Tuesday's, plenty of groin; Wednesday's, bloodshed; Thursday's, I plenty of sheep und corn; Friday's, the slaughter of a great man nnd other horrible murders; Saturday's, a gen? eral pestilent plague and great dearth." After this the gay and lightsome man? ner shown by Lord Northampton to? ward these grave matters in bis "De fonsntlve" is most cheering. "It chnunceth sometimes." he writes, "to thunder about that time nnd season of the years when swanncs batch their I young, and yet no doubt It is a para 1 dox of simple men to think thnt a swnnnc cannot hatch without a cracklo i of thunder."?London Chronicle. A STUDY IN MILEAGE. I Almont Kvcrr Coantry Una a stand? ard of IIa Own. English speaking countries have four different miles- the ordinary mile ol I 5,280 leot nnd the geographical or nau? tical mile of 0,085, making a differ ! ence of about one-seventh between the two; then there Is the Scotch mile of 5,028 feet and the Irish mile or 0,720 foot?four various miles, every one ol which is still In use. j Then almost every country has Its own standard mile. The Unmans bad j their mille passuum. 1,000 paces, which must have been about :5,000 feet In length unless we ascribe to Caesar's legionaries great stepping capacity. I The German mile of today Is 24,318 ! feet in length, more than four nnd a half times as long as our mile. The Dutch, the Danes and the Prus? sians enjoy a mile that Is 18,440 feet 1 long, three and a half times the length I of urn's, and the Swiss get more exer? cise In walking one of their miles than I we get In walking Ovo miles, for their ] tulle Is 0,159 yards long, while ours H . only 1,700 yards. The Italian mile Is I only a few feet longer than ours; the I Roman mile Is shorter, while the Tus I enn and the Turkish miles are 150 yards longer. The Swedish mile Is six and a half times and the Vienna post j mile is four and a half times tha I length of the English mile.?rearsou'i I Weekly. KEEP THE LIVER CLEAN. Oon't Overwork It nnd Gtre It a Hem Onco In Awhile. A man of common sense and a doc tor at that said: "The liver Is misuu ?lersteod ami underestimated In it? functions. If It can be kept clean and active there Is no reason why w,*> vhould ever be III a day, and wo should live to be ISO or 200 years old. It Is not necessary to rip this organ all to plece? with ton grains of calomel to get it stirred up. The best thing to do Is tf sbut of your food supply for two ot three days, drop your whisky am. fdarct, your ten nnd coffee, nnd give your liver a chance to rest. This should be done onco a month." It Is well known, of course, that lr olden times the liver was supposed tf ue the sent of the affections. Frlendi when they met In the morning did no1 salute each other with "How's youi health?" but with "How's your liver?1 Men take horseback exercise principal ly for their livers. A good shaking tip every morning drives away the clrrho ticblliary cneronehment. It Is nn erroi to assume that whisky alone produce! rlrrbosis. Overfeeding Is more often the cause. If the digestive organs would organize a union nnd work onlj eight hours a day all of us would be healthy and long lived.
