OLD JAPANESE ARMORERS. Btrniiffp I pkpihIm of the Temper and Keenne«» of Tlieir Sword«. The era of the sword tn Japan has given place to the ritte, but long before this period the exquisite art of the ori ental armorer was lost We are told of a blade composed of 4,104,304 layers of steel and polished so that the finest European polishing pastes only serve to scratch it. Few people have any idea of the art used In fashioning these weapons. They doubtless appreciate the beauty of the sheath, handle and guards, but to them a sword is a piece of steel made to cut, and that is all. When the Japanese armorer forged a sword lie did it as if it were a sacred thing, and indeed it was in his eyes. He forged the metal tenderly, with spe cial tools for each operation. He tem pered it with processes as secret as the confidences of the gods. lie had his methods of securing in the metal most marvelous color effects and of produc ing markings from an imitation of which tlie most expert armorers of Eu rope would recoil in despair. Strange legends are told of those old Japanese armorers. Masa-Mune, a gentle smith of the fourteenth century, could lot fall a hair of the hard shelled ndzuki bean across the edge of one of his swords, and it would he split in two, or. like Regin, lie Mould stand the weapon up right in a little stream of water and let tlie current carry along a little scrap of paper, which, as it touched the edge of tlie blade, would float away in halves. Of a different character was the fierce old Mura-Masa, who forged swords to the cry of "Tonka taira!" (War to men!) and quenched each one In the warm blood of a fresh human victim. This so inspired tlie steel with endless thirst that it would cleave iron like bronze and bronze like a melon in the search of human life. If left too long in its scabbard It possessed its wearer with a fierce desire to kill, and if drawn only for display it would hash the lingers of tlie one who wielded it. be lie ever so careful. So terrible was the slaughter of these semihuman blades that tlieir use was prohibited by one of tlie Tokugawa shoguns, and thereafter they were forced to languish in the sword racks. Minor smiths were content to pile up copper coins and display an edge unruillcd after cleav ing the stack or to cut through a half inch copper bar, hut the great masters smiled at such tests. The same blade which in their case could split a hair or divide a silk scarf which a gentle breeze wafted against it could slice the Iron or bronze like cheese. Tlie Horse anil tlie Ilonkey. The ancestors of the horse were ac- j customed to roam over the plains, where every tuft of grass or hush might conceal an enemy waiting to spring upon them. Under these eir- | cumstanees they must often have saved j their lives by starting quickly back or ! jumping to one side when they came ■ without warning upon some strange object. This is a habit which has not left the animal even after long years of domestication. On the other hand, the donkey is de scended from animals which lived among the hills, where there were prec ipices and dangerous declivities, and from these conditions resulted his (Jowness and sure footedness. Ills an cestors were not so liable to sudden at tacks from wild beasts and snakes, j Besides, sudden and wild starts would , have been positively dangerous to them. I Consequently they learned to avoid the j very trick which has been so useful to j the horse. The habit of eating thistles, j which is peculiar alone to tlie donkey, Is also descended from these ancestors. In the dry, barren localities which they inhabited there was often little food; hence they learned to eat hard,.dry and even prickly plants when there was nothing else. Forbear and Forgive. Do not expect too much from others, but remember that all have some ill na ture. whose occasional outcropping we must expect, and that we must forbear and forgive, ns we often desire for bearance and forgiveness ourselves. WnaliiiiKton. "My father," said Wellingtons non. "deemed Washington the purest and noblest character of modern time—pos sibly of all time—and, considering the raw troops with which he had to op pose the trained and veteran soldiers of England, also a great general." Another interesting statement which the second duke made to General Wil son. who writes to the Cornhill, was that when his father was assigned to the command of an expedition to be sent out against the city of Washing ton and New' Orleans in 1S14 he de clined the command chiefly on the ground that he would not tight against Washington's countrymen. And when his government asked for the names of three officers from whom a com mander could he selected Wellington wrote, "Sir Edward l'akenliam. Sir Edward Fakenham, Sir Edward Pak enliam," and so poor Sir Kdw'ard, his brother-in-law, was sent to New Or leans to meet his death in the most disastrous defeat ever sustained by a British army.

Even the adulteration of feather beds and bolsters had to be provided against.

MANNING, Stock Commissioner. Stevensville, Montana. 21 4t bne Deserted House (Original.! My automobile was powerful, but tlie snow was falling fast, and the wild was hurling it about wildly. I passed through a village where the lamps shone dimly through the cir cling flakes, but they were bright com pared with the black road into which I plunged beyond the town limits. My four acetylene lamps forced a circular hole in tlie darkness, and there would have been no difficulty in iny getting on had not the snow increased, while the wind, rising to fury, blew it into drifts. My pace grew slower, and with each drift I avur in danger of be ing stalled. The cold was Intense, and 1 began to grow sleepy. At last I was stalled. My lumps showed me. not fifty yards ahead, a stone bridge, beyond «Nhich the road forked at the foot of a large tree. Be yond on the left fork 1 thought 1 saw n light. Putting on all the force there was in my machine, I plowed through the snow and drew up in front of a massive stone house, wit 1 » pillars rising the Avliole height of the building, such a house as was in vogue about 1840. I rapped with the brass knocker, and a man opened the door. He was not a servant, hut a well to do looking per son of the country class. 1 told him my story, and he invited me to take my automobile around to a slied in tlie rear and to spend the night in his house. When 1 returned from tlie shed, he met me at a hack door, brush ed the snow off me and led me into the living room, where his wife and chil dren were sitting about a blazing wood fire. There was something uncanny about these people, and for my life 1 couldn't tell what It was. They were all as white as if they had been long ill and seemed hungry, not for food, for they gave me a supper, never touching a morsel themselves, hut for something the nature of which I could not guess. The wife and mother spread her hands before the tire to warm them, and 1 could see tlie llame behind, not through red blood, but white llesh. The chil dren, too. had a blue-white look about them that made me cold. I attempted to caress a little girl of six years, seiz ing her hand, hut she quickly drew it away, and I was glad she did, for it was cold and stiff, not the least of that warm softness in it. usual to childhood. I Avas glad when my host showed mi* to a sleeping room. In tin* night I nAvoke suddenly Avith suffocation. A mouth was glued to mine, and some one was drawing my breath from my body. I avus just in time to place my hands upon a pair of shoulders and hurl the figure uavu.v. In another moment I would have been powerless. Gasping, 1 awaited tlie per son's return, but when no one came 1 listened. There was no sound, and aft er n time I wondered if 1 had not had a spasmodic closing at the mouth of the windpipe and dreamed the rest. I av.is all in u tremor and resolved to "remain UAvake for the rest of the night. Never theless 1 became drowfiy, and the last I remember was struggling Avith sleep. I avus awakened by some one shak ing me, the mouth of a flask put be tween my lips and liquor in my mouth. I swallowed a considerable draft, after which I opened uiy eyes to lie blinded by a powerful light, the light from an automobile. Two men Avere chafing me. When assured that I was alive they told me that they were passing in their automobile and had found me In mine apparently frozen. They had reached me Just In time to save me. Ahead of me was the stone bridge I had seen, beyond Avliieh tlie road forked at the foot of the oak tree. I was still stuck In the drift from Avhicli I thought I had gone to the house far ther on. I said nothing to 1113 ' rescuers about this, and after they had turned my machine I went Avith them hack to the village, where I spent the remain der of the night. The next morning was bright, cold and still, and after a hot breakfast I proceeded on 1113 * way, passed the point where I had been stalled and pushed on by the left fork. What was my as tonlshment to see that the house at which I had stayed tlie night before was where I thought it. But instead of being occupied it was deserted. I Avas paralyzed with a frightful dread. Fortunately I had nothing to do but hold the steering wheel to put the horrible place behind me. Reaching a farm house a Rhort distance beyond. I stopped and, leaving my automobile, hoicked. A woman came to the door. • "You know the house half n mile back on this side of the road—stone house, big pillars?" "Yes." "Any one lived there lately?" "Not since a few years after It was built." "How so?" "I've heard the family that lived in it all died of cholera somewhere in the fifties." I caught at the railing of the porch. "Ever heard anything — strange — about the place?" "Oh, yes. There's lots of talk. I don't believe any of it, but I can't get any of my children to go past it In the dark. One story Is that the d<«d sometimes try to suck the life out of the living, and this family"— I waited to hear no more. Staggering to my automobile, I pulled myself in, managed to turn the starting gear and went flying away, bent only on putting miles between me and the house where I did not doubt the dead had taken me for the purpose of appropriating a life that wits on the eve of leaving its body.
