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.

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.

twice a- day for a year, and who are
allowed to eat only on each second
day for a month, figure In the funeral
ceremonies of the head-hunting na

Frets Because She Fumes. .
Some one ir. the "Periscope," gaz
ing out over the" sea of contempo
raneous life as it were, observes that
"There is nothing more pathetic than
he spectacle of a sturdy boy scout
begging his mother not to smoke."

Father of Three Kings.
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.

Word "Lot" of Puritan Origin.
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.
