That the Romans were very familiar with concrete and gave consideration to its use examination of the concrete work in the forum clearly shows. Their concrete contained generally only two kinds of stone, travertine and selcie. in equal parts. Selcie is a hard, closely knit rock, very similar to our bluestone Or trap rock in color as well as quality. Travertine . Is a. volcanic f rock not so ' hard as selcie, considerably lighter in color, and was desirable on account of its porosity, which insured a good bond With the cement In all the Roman Work the combination of the travertine and the selcie is clearly distinguish able. . To Run the Gantlet. The word "gantlet" in "to run the gantlet" is improperly used. The word should be "gantlope." Phillips in his "World of Words" tells us that "to tun the ganntelope" is a punishment among soldiers, the offender having to run, with his back bared, through the whole regiment and to receive a lash from a switch from every soldier. It is derived from Gant (Ghent), a town of Flanders, where the punishment was invented, and the Dutch word lope, running. - Carpet Knights.

They are only termed simply miles and milites, 'knight, or 'Knights of the Carpetry, or 'Knights of the , Green Cloth.' to distinguish them from those knight; that are dubbed as soldiers in the iiuld."

' The climate of the Rhine valley i warmer than in most other parts of Germany and is consequently more fa vorable than any other regions for the cultivation of tobacco, grapes and corn.

When in theip natural condition oys ters contain from one-eighth to one fifth more nutritive ' material than when fattened. Speaking roughly, a quart of oysters contains on an aver age about the same quantity of actual nutritive substance a a quart of milk, or three-fourths of . a pound of beef, or two pounds of fresh codfish, or a pound of bread. Oysters come nearer to milk than almost any other common 6od material as regards both the amounts and the relative proportions of nutrients. ' ' ' CHEERFULNESS. .
