There lived with an eminent divine liis two sisters, Mary and .lane. One I morning lie was deeply engrossed in a j new treatise he was preparing, when his young daughter was brought to him by her governess. "I have to report Miss Ellen for a terrible thing. She called her Aunt Mary a ? a ? a d ? d fool !" said the governess. "How terrible!" responded the di vine. "Did you eall your Aunt Mary this awful thing?" "No, father. I didn't," faltered the youngster. "I culled her a fool ? but not a? a ? a d ? d fool." "Well, even that is very *wieked of you," be replied, "but as you did not use that awful adjective I will forgive you. You may go." And be returned to bis writing. The youngster, however, did not go. "Please, father," she said, presently, "1 didn't eall Aunt Mary a d ? d fool. I called her a fool. But ? I ? I ? I did call Aunt -Tane a d ? d fool!" "Yes. yes!" be mumbled, without looking up from his work ; "1 quite agree. That Is the precise distinction between iheui that 1 usually make my self !" ? London Tit-Bits. "Pain Point6." On every human body there are four million "pain points" connected by nerves with the brain. They are, of course, distributed very unevenly. They are placed close together at the tips of the lingers and are furthest apart in the back. Anyone can test this for himself. If you will place two needles one quarter of an Inch apart by sticking them Into a piece of cardboard you will have a very effect ive instrument for making tests. Put your finger on these two points and you will, of course, feel both of them. Now apply them to the small of your back and you will feel bnt one point. Iu other words, the nerve centers In your back at this point are more than a quarter of an Inch apart. ? Boys' Life. Finds Pleasure In Thinking. Thinking after a while becomes the most pleasurable thing in the world. Give me a satchel and a Ashing rod, and I could hie myself off and keep busy at thinking forever. I don't need anybody to amuse me. It Is the same way with my friend, John Burroughs, the naturalist. We can derive the most satisfying kind of joy from thinking and thinking and thinking. The man who doesn't make up bis mind to cultivate the habit of think ing misses the greatest pleasure in lif*. He not only misses the great est pleasure, but he cannot make the most of himself. ? Thomas A. Edison. Bees Eaten for Revenpe. Bees are usually employed as manu facturers of honey, which is every where considered a delicious food, but there are places where the bees them selves serve as a food. The negroes of Guiana, when suing by a bee, proceed to catch as many as they can and iu revenge eat them. It would he Interesting to know what happens as an effect, of the sting thus taken Internally. In Ceylon the natives hold a torch under the bee swarm hanging to a tree, catch them as they drop, then carry them home, boil them and eat them. ? Popular Science Monthly. Turned Down. Closeman ?

I Here in America we are quite Uke | ly to take f?>r granted that if a man i has a good education, then his finding ! of an opportunity to apply it protit ! ahly is a comparatively simple matter, j Certainly our whole educational pro j gram, and especially our whole line j of educational appeal and propaganda. ! will have to he changed the moment ' that assumption is no longer to lie : made. Whiting Williams writes in i Scribner's. "Kquip yourself. Vi?M!ig j America, and the country's yours!" we say in effect to our youtli.^whethcr in school or at work. In l'ritain there is much testimony to the effect that that assumption is not thus to l>e made. l'n less they spend additional years training for medicine, the law, or oth er of the professions, graduates of the universities must pretty much expect to find berths in the civil service. The exams for that an? extremely difficult. Those who come out of thorn with marks at the top of the list get the best of the positions In the most Im portant departments at home. They next go out to India or other provinces, while those below them take the sec ond grade of the places here ? and so on. The pay starts at about ?300 (nomi nally $1,500, and considerably more in buying power), with gradual yearly in creases np to a certain maximum and a pension. TAUGHT LESSON BY HUNGER I Good Story of How Franklin Wai j Converted to the Idea of Fish j as Human Food. One day Benjamin Franklin ? .Tames Parten tells us in his "Life of lien jam In Franklin" ? was on a sloop which was becalmed on a certain island. The sailors, as is still the cus tom when a ship is becalmed, amused themselves by fishing. Franklin wit nessed the catching of the flsli with regret. But soon there came to tauta lizf, his nostrils a most alluring odor from the frying pan. So, as Franklin used to tell the story, he went over his reasoning again to see if there was not a flaw in it. It occurred to hiin that when the flsh were opened he had seen smaller flgli In their stomachs. "Ah!" said Franklin. "If you eat one another I don't see why we may not eat you!" So Franklin dined upon the flsh very heartily, and thereafter ate what, others ate. When telling this story Franklin ended with an observation which is often attributed to Talley rand, but which we are assured was a familiar joke with Franklin. This was : "So convenient, n thing it is to be a reasonable creature, since It en ables one to find or make a reason for everything one has a mind to do!" Persian Bread Has Many Uses. At Kasvin, Persia, a British patrol base, we were lodged in empty wards of the military hospital, writes Mary K. Oriscom in Asia Magazine. Our provisions had almost given out by this dine, and we were reduced to Persian stone bread. So far as 1 know, only the coconut and tin- bam- ] boo serve mote purposes than tin* | flaps- of Persian bread, which are about two feet long, one foot wide and a quarter of an inch thick. If it is raining, the Persians use them on i their heads as umbrellas; ami if it is ; sunny, as parasols; in winter, they wrap the flaps around their shoulders. | If they do not need them for protec tion they roll them up and carry them under their arms. In the hos pitals they spread them out on empty beds to dry. May Be in Earnest. "This burlesque queeu says she's go ing to play Hamlet." "For why?" "She says she wants to do better work."

BEAUTY ITS LURE I | Under Wonderful Charm Zanzi- ! i bar Conceals Deadly Rage. j Great Metropolis of East Coast of Af- j rica Attracts Wanderers From All Civilized Countries. Aden, from which I had but recent ly departed, is a man grown gaunt und rugged in honest strife; but Zan j zibar is a courtezan, whimsical. gay. j sujlen, presenting many aspects, ? writes William Ashley Audersou iu Harper's Magazine. Warm, rich, beautiful, concealing with dissembling ait its sinister spots, it lavishes its charms, intoxicates with Its beauty, smothers with its opulence; or suddeuly, after a smoldering si lence, it reuds Itself with rage. The screainiug tornado rips its garments of verdure to tatters, bony-tlngered pestileuce goes leering down its dark alley ways, fever shakes the life out of its victims. And aftei'ward, the bright sun sparkles upon the rain washed foliage, and the inland smiles ugain with the iunocent radiance of a maiden. Zanzibar town is the metropolis of the east coast It is Home to the dusky pilgrim; It is Paris to the reck less wanderers from tbe Bantu folk of Cape Delado to the sons of the cor sairs of Oman.

A real soldier of fortune who be cune a commissioned officer in the Polish army at the age of sixteen, after having returned only five months ago to the United States and "clvles," could no longer resist the call of the khaki and the bugle, and In conse quence enlisted as a "buck' private at the United Stares army recruiting headquarters. This youthful hero of campulgns against the Germans and Bolshevik I Is Josef Zalot, nineteen years old. In 1917 he Joined the Polish volunteers, after being educated in Philadelphia his native city, and was commissioned a second lieutenant at Camp Niagara, Ontario, Canada. After considerable lighting at Rheims and the Champagne country, followed by the armistice, he studied at a French school of arm*. He accom panied General Haller* army In the spring of 1919 to the Polish front to fight against the Russians, and at the end of that campaign returned homei Be is now a buck private in the Eight* eenth infantry at Camp Dix, New Jer sey, studying for examination as a sec ond lieutenant. Repairing a Buckled Ship, lu the* great explosion at Halifax the British ship Ciiraca had her back broken. When the vessel wns re tloateil it was found that she was buckled to the extent of nine feet two Inches at the bow and six feet six inches at the stem. In that condition, says the Scientific American, she was temporarily repaired and brought to New York, where she was put In dry dock, and the water was pumped out until she touched the keel blocks amid ships. Next, the plating on both sides of the ship was cut at the point where the vessel had buckled, and more wa ter was pumped out, until both ends settled gently down upon the keel blocks and the vessel was once more straight. The task of joining the two parts was comparatively simple. Season's Best Joke. "Whnt's the cause of the lornl hi larity In the real estate office next door?'
