But Only One of Them Is Used to
Think With.
Man has a pair of brains just as he
has a pair of eyes and a pair of ears,
deelares I)r. William Hanna Thomson
in Everybody's. But, asserts Dr.
Thomson, only one (o our two brains
ts used to think with. He continues:
"When we come into this world we
have a pair of quite thoughtless brains
sad nothing more. To become intelli
gent beings we must acquire a whole
host of mental facittles and endow
ments, not one of which does a human
being bring with him at birth. No one
was ever born speaking IoIngisi nor
any other language. No newly' born
babe knows anything by sight nor Ib
any other sense. Every kind of knowl
edge has to be gained by personal edu
cation. But only recently have we
found that this education necessitates
the creation of a local anatomical
change in brain matter to make it the
special seat for that 'accomplishment.'
Thus no one can become a skilled vrio
in player until by long fashioning he
has at last made a violin playing place
in his cerebrum.
"But all this brain fashioning takes
so much time and trouble that for
mere economy of labor, as one hremi
sphere will do all that is necessary,
the individual spends his efforts on
one of them only. As both hemi
spheres are equally good for this pur
pose, which of the two he will educate
depends on which one he begins with.
This is settled for him when as a
child he begins all his training by the
hand that he then most easily uses;
hence it is that all the speech centers
and all the knowing and educated
places are to be found only in the left
hemisphere of the right handed and in
the right hemisphere of the left hand

They Must Keep Posted on European
Coins and Counterfeits.
"I never realized until today," said a
man who had just returned from Eun
rope, "what an undertaking it is to be
a money changer.
"I" came back with about $20 in for
elgn money, principally French and
Italian. This I took to a money
changer's to cash in.
"He looked over the coins rapidly,
throwing them into little piles and put
ting down notes on a slip of paper.

said I had $10.25 coming to me.
"At first I thought he was doing me,
but he was not. He shoqed me a
dozen or so Italian coins that 'had been
demonetized and were worth about 40
cents on the dollar. There was a nice
lttle pile of counterfeits that were not
worth a cent, and altogether only
- about a third of the coins that I
brought home were worth their fall

Its own. Certain notes are good for ten
years. After that thie for every year
they lose 10 per cent of their face
value until the whole value is used up
and they are worth only the paper
they are printed on.
As one man expressed it, you have to
know the history of the world to be a
money changer. A peculiar part of the
business is the reshipment of coins
back to the countries whence they
came. Often during the rush season
one firm sends back a million coins,
while it is estimated that in the course
of a year $10,000,000 In foreign money
is reshipped to Europe and a million to
the rest of the world.
Money changing is a business just
like any other. They do not exchange
money; they buy it, and when you go
there with foreign coins they buy them
from you at a stated price. When you
go there to get foreign coins you buy
them from them at a certain price just
as you buy eggs and clgars.-New York

Allow them to suggest the arrange

Leave the windows free that there

Always strive to take a cheerful and

Be cheerful and pleasant, but not

Be careful not to criticise, argue or

Copyright, 1907, by C." i SButoliffe.
Ackroyd moved his chai. from the
corner that he might haive an unob
Itructed view of Drusillais face. She
was seated near the piano lamp, osten
sibly examining the score of a recent
musical farce he had brought her. Her
chin rested id one little upturned palm,
and her eyes were fixed- pensively on
the music in her lap. Ackroyd watch
ed her silently for some moments. He
was loath to disturb that pLse.
"I saw Ted Briggs today;" he said at
length, and he said it with the evident
expectation of a flutter of excitement
on Drusilla's part. In this, however,`
he was disappointed. She turned a
page of the score withou$ raising her
"Did you?" she said calmly.
"I did," he affirmed. ",ad a sort of
an all gone air about him"
Drusilla was silent.
"Looked as if he needed some one to
sympathize with him-or kick him,"
Ackroyd pursued.
Another page of the score was turn
ed, but Drusilla said nothing.
"Haven't seen him round here late
ly," said Ackroyd, and his tone sug
gested much.
"It's something over a week since he
called last," said Drusilla innocently.
Ackroyd smiled grimly, but Drusilla's
eyes being on the score its meaning
was lost on her.
I "Same old story, I presume," said he.
"What's the same old story?" she
said, with some em hasis.
"Got his conge, eh?"
"What are you talking about?"
"Ted Briggs."
"Weft, what about him?"
"He seems to have been cast into the
outer darkness with his innumerable
predecessors," Ackroyd observed.
Drusitla shrugged her shoulders.
"I don't see why I should fret my
self over that," she said.
"For casting him there, of course,"
said Ackroyd severely. '
"Admitting I did." said iDrusilla with
ehallenge in her voice.
"Ted Briggs is a parficuiar friend
of mine." Ackroyd began.
"Must I marry all your particular
friends?" said Druslila with sardonle
Ackroyd's eyes flashed angrily.
"You knew all the time he was tak
ing things seriously," he remonstrated.
"Yae might have a little mercy on
such chaps."
"OP. don't let's squabble every night
you come here, said Drusilla wearily.
"Here's the 'Palm' song. Shall I sing
It to you. Max?"
She seated herself at the piano and
sang with all her Inimitable little droll
eries. When she had finished she
swung about to face Ackroyd.
"Did that soothe your sarage breast,
Marie?" she asked sweetly.
Ackroyd scowled. "When will you
ever be serious?" he said.
"I was never so serioi.s in my life,"
she asserted. "Indeed I am complete
ly weighed down with responsibility
and remorse. You doia't imagine he'll
take prussic acid, do you, Max?" she
ended in tragic tones.
Ackroyd looked ao her with cold dis
"Between old friends"- he began.
But Drusilla at once cut him short.
"Now. Max. I'm` awfully sorry, but if
you begin to scatter any of that fa
therly advice about here you'll have to
go home, and I counted on a delightful
evening with you here." she said ten
'"Nevertheless," said Ackroyd, "I
shall say what I set out to, be the pen
alty what it may."
Drusilla, rested her elbows an the
keys and looked at him archly.
"I was about to remark," Ackroyd
went on, "that in the social sea you
are a sort of uncharted reef on which
the affections of many serious minded
young men are shipwrecked."
"What a metaphori" she taunted.
"Their shipufrecks don't seem to. be
alarming calamities, however. They
survive them."
"And there are others who are in
danger of sailing straight on to the
reef, knowing all its dangers," said he.
"Dear me!" said Drusnail. "They
should take a course Jo navigation."

"On what?'
"Well, I'm interested in woman tak
ing a better stand than she has taken.
I want my vote with .ou men.'"
"I'm perfectly willing that you,
should have it."
"But supposing we differ politically."
"What are your political opinions?"'
"I incline to socialism, municipal
ownership and all that. You don't.
You're on the other aide."
"But I'm ready to be converted. I
don't know that I understand the prin
ciples of socialism. Suppose you e-r
plain them to me."
"Why, it's very simple. We all need

are farmers, some fishermen"-'

thousand things that age not food."
"Such as kisses."
She looked very much hurt. "How

"Kisses are one of the things we

"How would it do," he added, ineas

ply that principle to matrimony?"
"What do you mean?"
"Why, pool all the men and all the
women. When a man wants a wife
she is furnished from the pool, and
vice versa;"
"How silly!"
"I'm reasoning from analogy."
"There's nothing in your absurdity
analogous to socialism. In socialism
one needing brea4 gets bread. In the'
other case one needs a companion, and
all are not equally companionable."
"That's just it. If they don't slit
they go back into the pool."
"I supposed you wished to talk seri
ously," she said, turning away, with a
trifle of hauteur. "Suppose we talk of
something else."
"I'll let you do the talking. Proceed
with your explanation."
"It may be'ltlustrated by matrimony.
The husband works for the money to
buy the requirements, while the wife
takes care of the children."
"I thought you said she attended to
her political obligations."
"She does that too."
