Properly manipulated, they many times take the place of speech,. The umpire at wrestling and fencing matches uses a heavy fan shaped like a huge butterfly, the handle being the body and rendered imposing by heavy cords of silk. The various motions 01 the fau constitute a lauguuge which the wrestlers fully uuderstand and appreciate. Formerly In time oi war the Japanese commander used a large fan, having a frame of Iron covered with thick paper. In case of uunger it would be shut, and a blow liotu its iron bones was no light at lair. One notable variety of fau Is made of waterproof paper, which can be dipped in water and creates great coolness by evaporation without wet ting the clothes. The flat fan made of rough paper Is often used us a grain winnow, to blow the charcoal lii'i's and as a dustpan. The Japanese gontk'inan of the old school who nev er wears a hat uses his fun to shield his eyes from the sun. His head, bare from childhood, hardly needs shade, and when it does he spreads nn umbrella, and with his fan he di rects his servants and saves talking. Weeping at a Wedding. A Chinese marriage Is all ceremony jio talk, no levity and much crying. The solemnity of a funeral prevails. After the exchange of presents the bi'ido is dressed with much care iu a red gown, brocade or silk, if she can get it; her eyelashes are painted a deep black and she wears a heavy red veil attached to a scarlot head dress from which imitation pearls are pendant over the forehead. A feast in i-pread upon a table, to which the blushing bride is led by five of her best female friends. They are seated at the table, but no one eats. The ut most silence prevails, whin finally the mother leads off In a cry, the maids follow and the bride echoes in the chorus. Then all the bridesmaids have the table, and the disconsolate mother takes a seat beside the chair of state where the hrldo sits. The ridegroom now enters, with four of his best men. The men pick up the throne on which the bride sits, and. eceded by the bridegroom, form in procession and walk around the room or Into an adjoining pallor, sig- Hying that he is carrying her away his own home. The guests then irow rice at the happy couple a cus tom we have borrowed from the heathen. Unbreakable Crockery. It is reported that a Bdgiun firm Is nking a hardened crystal dish which n appearance closely resembles trans lucent china of uniform shape and uiaiiulacttire. The resistance to hocks and sudden changes ol tempi r- nuue of this product are remarkable. hardened crystal dish can be sub stituted lor a hammer driving nails into wood, while the tableware can be put into boiling water at a high degree, then plunged into ice water repeatedly, without the least notice able damage. A set of this ware has een in use in one Delglan family io ten years, and, with the exception of a tew unusual local accidents, the set presents the same fresh appearance as when It came from the factory. Hales ol the usual form iu this Hard ened ware may be hurled to the stone floor of a warehouse and go bounding along the whole length ol the build ing without suffering the least dam age. Black Lungs and Whits. At tile Anatomical Museum in Ed inbr.rg.i L'n.versily there is a striking objuct h.sson showing the actual harm dune to health by log. There are pre served three human lungs, one quite white, one quite black, and the otner a dirty gray compromise between the two. Tne white lung belonged to an Esquimaux who had breathed all his hie the untainted air of the Arc tic Circle; the black lung had been the property of a coal miner, and it was black simply because it was im pregnated with coal dust; the gray lung belonged to a city dweller who bad breathed all his life the dust-lad-eu, log-tainted air of a great town. Caucasian Skull Growing. By comparing modern skulls with those of the same race in an old mon astery Iu the Kedron Valley, Doctor Ui;;iit, of the Americau College of Beirut, Syria, has shown that thir len centuries have added two inches to the circumference and three and a hall' cubic inches to the capacity of the Caucasian skull. The brain is developed iu the parts presiding over the moral and intellectual functions, growing higher and longer, without increase of the lower portions, which give breadth to the head and In whicn the selfish propensities are centered. Longest Lived Race. The Norwegians are longest-lived of the European people, and the Span iards ihe shortest. The average dura tion of life in these foreign countries is as follows: Norway 50, England 45, Belgium 44, Switzerland 44, France 43, Austria 39, Germany 39, Italy 39, Bavaria 36 and Spain 32. The Emperor's Motto. A mirror, a crystal and a sword are carried before .the eniperor of Ja pan on all state occasions, "Know thyself" Is the message of the mir ror; "B pure and shine" is the crys tal's Injunction; while the sword is a reminder to "Be strong."

Among the I.olos of Western China It Is customary for the bride on the wedding morn to perch her self on the highest branch of a large tree, while the elder female members of her family cluster on the lower limbs, armed with sticks. When all ore duly stationed the bridegroom clambers up the tree, assailed on all fides by blows, pus'ics and pinches fi om the downgnrs, and It Is not un til he has broken through their fence und raptured the bride that he is allowed to carry her off. Tradesmen i:i Japan. Some of the Japanese tradesmen in the smoller towns of Nippon have a curious way of advertising their business. On their right forearms they tattoo figures the shoemaker a shoe, the wodcutter an ax, the butcher a cleaver. Underneath these emblems are such Inscriptions as "I do my work modestly and cheaply," and "I am zt good at my trade as most of my fellows." When they are looking for work they bare their arms and walk about the streets. Handkerchiefs in the Army.

Au ancient cookbook has been (US' covered, written Iu the English of Chaucer's time, which wns published about i:'J0. It Is culled "The Form of Cury" and contains 1!K! recipes. Ac cording to the preface, "It techlth a until for to make commune potage & commune meetls for howshold, as they should be made, craftly and holsomly." Judging from the spicing und season lug, Indigestion must have been a dis ease unknown to the fourteenth cen tury. (iiirlle, vinegar, cloves, clnna nion, wine and even ale apnr Iu al most every recipe and In appalling quantities. For example, a "salaf wns made of "parsel, snwge, garlic, chlbolles (young onions), leek, borage, myiites, fenel & ton tresses (cresses), rew, rosmaj re, purslayue; lave & wnshe hem elene, piko hem, pluck hem simile with tliyu hoiide, & liiyng (mix) hem well with rn we olle. Lay on vynegnr & salt, & serve It forth." Pork seems to have been the favor ite meat with the Englishmen of this century. And this Is not strange when one remembers their taste for splee, strong flavors and cloying 'sweets, eal comes next In popularity, but beef is not mentioned in one of the ll0 recipes. One Is amazed at the populari ty of the whale, grampus, seal, swan, crane, heron and peacock. The swan was served up In roynl style and vows of chivalry were made upon It. It was skowered and roasted in a sitting pi. Hire. Say the directions: "Make u stiff bed of paste alxmt the thickness of your thumb, color it green, comb it out, und It will look like u meadow of green grass. Take your hwuii and gild him over with gold; then have a kind of loose, flying cloak of n vermilion color within mid painted with arms without; then set the swan upon this bed, cover some part of him with the cloak, stick nNuit him small banners upon little sticks, the banners painted with the arms most agreeable to the persons seated ut the table." At ii grand feast when Edward I. knighted his eldest sou, on the eve of his Scottish expeditions, two swans. gorgeously caparisoned, were Introduc ed with n flourish of trumpets. I'pon them the king swore in the presence of Ood mid the ladles that he would avenge the death of John Comyn and the pewldy of Itoliert Bruce. But, In spite of the popularity of the swan for great occasions, It was tho peacock which. In the romautlc lan gur.ge of the age of chivalry, was "the food of lovers mid the meat of kings." Ho appeared on the festal board with his gorgi6us feathered skin skewered around Ills roasted bodv. uiie very popular concoction was " called "tarts of flesh." and the quaint recipe reads: "Take veal Ysode and grind It small. Take hard ayren ysode (Dolled eggsi & ygrouude & there to put prunes hoole, dates ycarved, pynes (seed found In pines, cones, com mon in Italy) & raisins, corrauce, hool splets, & powder, salt, sugar & make littell collln, & do this furs therein. & take & serve It forth." Another much richer tart was made thus: "Bray the pork smnle In a mortar. Take fygges & boll them tendre lu small ale, & bray them. & teudre cheese there with, & pepper, salt & sarou. Then take sugar, ayren (eggs), & flour & mane a paste with n roller, thanne make thereof smale pellets & fry them uraun in clean grit." Though the oyster was known and eaten In the fourteenth century. It was thought to luck flavor, so they seethed it m wine with ground nlmonds and rice, powdered ginger, sugar and mace. curious tiling nliout old cookery oooks is tneir silence concerning niinn- uiy. lane plgges yscnlded;" "take eelys, "take conynges or rabbits," Is all the Information which Is given. netrnttint In Holland. iu n-aiMii puris or iioiiaud when a young man thinks he loves a girl he asKs uer for n match to light his cigar i uie uoor or the beloved one's Iioihp This Is done to let the parents know that something Is Intended, and If the Wtutf Ic ....1 ..... 4, .. .
