In the celling of the dining room in Nero's "golden house," on the Palatine hill, were compartments in laid with ivory which revolved, showering perfumes and flowers on the guests. Flowers were presented to the guests by slaves. They were crowned with wreaths. Usually after one course the tables were removed and others placed before the guests. Throughout the meal drinking con tinued until the banqueters fell un der the table stupefied. In those days men lived to eat.

"It never occurred to me that there could be any two ways of spell ing the word 'bunk,' " said the scholarly appearing person who was studying the sporting section of the newspaper. "But I happened to pick up a Memphis newspaper the other day and as a head to a speech made by Commissioner Loomis in Tokio recently I read: "Loomis Hands Out the Bunc' "Now, without endeaving to go into the merits of the case so put I want to say only that the headline meant that Mr. Loomis was accused of softsoaping the Japanese he ad dressed. The only other authority for the spelling of the word comes from the sporting cartoonists, whose work I study carefully. They are unanimous in spelling it 'bunk.'" "It appears to me that the South ern version is based on a belief that the word is a diminutive of 'bun combe.' The Northern spelling may be due to the belief that a person who may be bunked is a person of sleepy or dopy nature, who might as well be lying in a bunk, wrapped in slumber. Therefore when a per son is bunked he is rendered sleepy, That Is merely conjecture." The Dust of the Earth. j Expecting a visit from the super- [ intendent of an adjacent Sunday j school one Sunday afternoon, one j enterprisng teacher, anticipating the line of questions which would be asked of the scholars, selected a boy | from her class to answer each ques tion. As she had figured it out, the I visitor would first ask the pupils the question, "Who made you?" and the pupil was, of course, to answer" "God." The next question was to be "Of what?" to which the answer was to be "Of the dust of the earth." Unfortunately between the time Sun day school was called to order and the visiting superintendent had tak en the floor, the first pupil was tak en sick and obliged to go home. The teacher did not have the opportunity to readjust her force, and when the first question was asked, the second boy thought it a good opportunity for him to get his answer and get it off his mind; so to the question, "Who made you?" he answered, "Of the dust of the earth." "Oh, no," said the visitor. "God "No, sir; He did not," said the youngster. "The little boy that God made has gone home sick, and I am the dust of the earth."—Judge. , A Dead Bird.

It has been used for almost three quarters of a century and stands as a landmark to remind the present generation of the old order of things in Lexington and central Kentucky.

At the reservoir at Saddleback Pond recently at Rangely, Me., beav ers' work in dam construction wns foumd to interfere with the water supply from Saddleback stream. These busy engineers had construct ed a tight dam which had retained considerable of the supply of the mountain reservoir, and workmen each day tore out their work only to find it rebuilt on their next visit. Good sized tree sections had been ha-uled in and placed in the dam by the beavers. After several de structions of the beaver's dams there was again found to be a stoppage In the supply of water through the main pipe 3. The dam had not been rebuilt, but on close investigation it was found that these cunning engi neers in revenge apparently had built a dense screen across the strainer, which had prevented the flow of water through the main pipe.

GIVE YOUR GIRL AJWESSI It Is a Guard Against Pov erty and Perhaps "DRANDED by the police records as D shoplifters, thieves, drug fiends and as women of thu streets, scores of girls of good family, girls who be gan life under meet auspicious cir cumstances, have sunk into oblivion, shaken off by their relatives, shunned by former friends and fol'gotten at last in the rush of the passing years. There isn't a day but what one er more of such tragedies of the girl v.:.0 tolls in her endeavor to support her self and so sinks into the mire is told in the columns of the daHy pa pers, and there are many, many more that never reach the eyes or ears of | the public because the tragedy has not enough human intercut in the eyes of the police reporter to "mike a story." Why is it?

Or will you force her into marriage, any kind of marriage to escape it? One or the other she must face, or perhaps a worse fate, unless she is armed against poverty with the fideuce born of knowledge. If your girl has a talent for some one thing let hor follow it till she is capable of winning a fair living through it. Don't let her grow up a helpless woman who is capable only of being a social favorite; and after nil, if she has broadened brain and in dividuality by study, if she is serene ly conscious that she is able to cope with life's battle, she will be three times as fine and attractive a woman as the prattling, frivolous so-called "feminine" woman.
