RENOWNED AS GREAT RULER Roman Emperor, Trajan, Spread th Boundaries of the Empire and Governed Justly at Home. The llomau' emperor, .Trajan, whose full name was Marcus Ulpius Tra jaaus, was born about the year 56 at rtalica hi Spain, which was then a Human province. lie was trained for a military career and trained distinc tion in the l'urthian and German cam paigns, and after holding two civil oflices was adopted by the Emperor Nerva, whom he succeeded on the imperial throne in the year 98. The greater part of Ids time as emperor was spent In the field commanding his troops. His first- campaign was carried on beyond the Danube against the Daeians, whom lie conquered after a long struggle. In the conquered country he planted a Itoman colony, and the descendants of those colonists are the Roumanians of today. Trajan's next war was carried on In the East. He made Armenia and Mesopotamia into Roman provinces, but suffered defeat at Cteslphon,. not far from Kut-el-Amara, where a Iiritish force was cut off and compelled to sur render during the World war. In his rear the Jews of Cyrus and t'yrene rose in revolt and made fearful mas sacres, and disorders als arose in the West. Trajan returned to the coast and took ship for Italy. His health was broken and while on the journey be died at Selinus in Cilicia, Asia Minor, in August, 117. Traj;m found time to accomplish much in the internal improvement of the empire. He beautified Rome; he constructed canals, great military roads, and har bors, and built up towns. Law was enforced and justice fairly administered. The Key. Hie key to every man Is his thought.

FISH MISTAKEN FOR VESSEL Peculiar Appearance of Swoxdfish Gave Rise to Many Strange Stories Concerning It. In. the warm waters of the Indian ocean there lives a srrange mariner, who is the -cause of many tales among the natives of the near-by coasts. They tell of a wonderful sail often seen in the calm seasons, when not a breath disturbs the water, and the sea rises and falls like an immense sheet of glass. Suddenly a sail appears, ap parently driven along by a mighty wind. This sail glistens with rich purple and golden hues. On it comes, quivering and sparkling as if covered with gems; then, suddenly, it dis ;ipj ears as quiclily as it came! Many travelers have listened with unbelief to this strange tale, until, one day, this beautiful craft passed directly under the stern of a passing vessel, and it was seen to be a gigan tic swordnsh which is now known as the "sallor-nsh." The sail was really an enormously developed dorsal fin, over 10 feet high, and richly colored with blue and iridescent tints. As the fish swam along near the surface of the water this great fin waved to and fro, so that from a distance it was easily mistaken for a sail. Weeping for a Vear.

Charles Bonaparte, father of the great Emperor Napoleon, was a hum ble lawyer, with no very extensive practice, in the sleepy littles town of Ajaccio, in the Isle of Corsica. He seems to have been a most affection ate and exemplary parent, and as the father of three sons who became kings (Joseph, king of Naples and Spain; Louis, King of Holland, and Jerome, king of Westphalia), and a fourth who became the greatest military com mander, monarch and king-maker of modern times, he holds an unique place In history. There were thirteen children In the family. Napoleon being the second. Charles Bonaparte, although hardly well-to-do, strove to give his sons the best possible" education, . and had he not decided to send Napoleon (then aged ten) to the military school at Brlenne, the whole course of the 'world's history might have been changed.

The use of the word "lot" to des ignate a lield or plot of land, Is uni versal in the United Statesf It had Its origin among the Puritans, and was the product of-their strict adher ence to Biblical customs. Anions the early settlers of New England the extensive salt-marshes from which the salt-hay was cut, were owned In common, every man helping himself to as much hay as he wished. As the population increased this con dition could not prevail with general harmony, and It was agreed to divide the marshes equally among all the families. This was done by the Bib lical fashion of. lot and the portion which fell to each man was knowri as "his lot." In a short time the word came to apply to any piece of land, and finally reached the meaning of any great quantity. Survival of Old Roman Custom. The custom of appointing promi nent citizens to act as a guard of honor at a great man's funeral Is the survival of an ancient Roman custom. The name "pallbearers" also descends from the old days In the "City of the Seven Hills.- "Pall" conies from the Latin word "palla," the long sweeping robes worn only bj priests and men and women of the i!gnest standing. When a great personage died his "palla" was thrown over hi coffin and a -number of his distinguished friends; were, permitted to "bear the palla" to the grave and to act as guard of honor to the dead. r.r.
