The phrase "lire lands" originated in a passage of early history, which also gave rise to the term "western re serve." After the -Revolutionary war, when the colonies consented to cede their claims to western lands to con gress, Connecticut reserved from her cession a tract embracing a large part yf northern Ohio. The tract thus re rervod included the present, counties! of Trumbull, Geauga, Portage and Ash tabuln and became known as the west ern reserve. It was settled chiefly by emigrants from Connecticut and was sometimes called .New Connecticut. In promoting the settlement of the land Connecticut reserved half a mil lion acres from the western end of the tract for bestowal upon her citizens who had suiTercd losses during the war. and the lands embraced in this special reserve were called "sufferers' lands" aud later "fire lands," because most, of the sufferers had been losers by fire. In early times the phrase "fire lands"' -was sometimes used in deeds in describing the location of land in tlio tiaet referred to. Philadelphia Press. Love of Money. Tlio love of money can hardly be the root of all evil, for it is only one per verse passion out of many. But there is a kind of decorum about money which makes the love of it peculiarly dangerous, since it conceals from the lover the nature and effects of lii.s pas sion. If a man wants too much food, he is evidently greedy. If a woman wants too many clothes, she is evident ly vain. But money is not a thing, like clothes or food, that can be enjoyed by itsclf.^lt is only a means of getting things that can be enjoyed, and so greed for money is not a direct greed, but indirect. It is a civilized means of conducting the struggle for life, which to a great extent conceals frdin those who use it the ugliness and the aniinnl nature of lliat struggle. It is, in fact, a kind of diplomacy, politely conduct ed, behind which there is war. But the diplomats often do not see the war.— London Times. Chesterfield on Toothbrushes. When did the English first adopt the toothbrush habit? In "Esmond" Thack eray makes Lord Castlewood spend "a tenth part of Ills day in the brushing of his teeth and the oiling of his hair," and in doing so the novelist commits a dou ble anachronism. During the first half of the eighteenth century all fine gentle men wore wigs and had no use for oil on their liair, while the toothbrush was so late as 1734 unknown to Lord Ches terfield. Writing to his son. Chester field says "I hope you take great care of your mouth and teeth, and that you clean them well every morning with a' spongo and tepid water, with a few drops of arquebusade water dropped into it. I do. insist upon your never using those sticks, or any hard sub stance whatever, which always rub away the gums and destroy the var nish of the teeth."—London Graphic. Porpoise Jaw Oil. Practically all the porpoise oil used in this country, even if not in the world, for lubricating watches and other deli cate instruments is made near New Bedford, Mass., which many years ago was important as a whaling port. The product is taken from the jaw and cer tain other parts of the animal, which is caught especially for this purpose. When the industry was in its infancy whalers were depended upon to supply the porpoise, but now the manufactur ers maintain a fishing department, which follows the schools of porpoise migrating along the coast and furnish es a continual supply of them. The history of the New Bedford industry reaches back to the early part of the nineteenth century to a watch tinker who regulated and cleaned the time pieces of the whalers.—Popular Me chanics.

London's statues are generally the laughing stock of foreign visitors. They are called "jokes iu stone" and other rude names. It is all the more gratifying to find one at least of these generally despised objects gaining the applause of qualified judges. A party of Belgian sculptors and artists on a recent visit were moved to proclaim their convict ion that the quadriga of "Victory" on the arch at the top of Constitution hill was not only the finest equestrian group in England, but in the whole-world! The sculptor, Cap tain Adrian .Tones, once told the writer that it was twenty years after the first sketch vas made that the group was finally put in position.—London Stand ard. One "of the most singular views on drinking ever recorded occurs in a letter from Sir Henry Ingelby on Aug. 21, 1001, printed iu "Pryings Among Private Papers." "Sir William is so ill," wrote the baronet, "one of his doctors told me yesterday there was no manner of hope. I have been taught that Jupiter allows every man who conies into the world a different proportion of drink, which, when he has dispatched, there remains nothing for him to do but to die, and that the proportion and expedition make great difference iu men's ages."—London Standard. The Earliest Lamps. The most primitive lamps were prob ably the skulls of animals, in which fat was burned, while certain seasliells were also employed for this purpose, says an exchange. When pottery and metal began to be used the principle of these natural lamps was for a long time retained, as seen in ancient. Egyp tian, Greek and Roman lamps and in the stone cups and boxes of northern nations. Clean as a Whistle. The origin of the saying "As clean as a whistle" Ts ascribed to the "whis tle tankard" of olden times, in which the whistle came into play when the tankard was emptied or "cleared out" to announce to the waiter that more liquor was required.
