An ancient story of the greed of kings has been resurrected by an erudite member of the Institute de France, Mr. Adrien Blanchet. The fact is there is some prospective work on hand for the utilization of the Rhone water power. Thus do ancient history and modern enterprise come tp hobnob in the revue des etudes anciennes. The story tells- how the king pt France, Charles. IX, coming one day to Aries, saw the Roman sar cophagi and wished them his. He did not covet long, for the next act In this kingly episode was the shipping of the most perfect of Rome's monuments pn route for the capital city. This may have furnished a later king of France, namely, Louis XIV, with the precedent for the removal of the statue of Mes eallna from Bordeaux not that that monarch ever needed either precedent or encouragement for his actions. The sarcophagi started on their Journey. It was in the year 1565. They bad unfor tunately not gone beyond the famous Pont-Salnt-Esprit, before the boats sank beneath so unusual and weighty fl load. Now, the congress for the de velopment of water power, which sat In February this year, discussed among other schemes the transformation of the Pont-Salnt-Esprit. The question is —and it will be admitted to be an ab sorbing one—during the excavations in the bed of the Rhone will those sarco fehagl, lost nearly four centuies ago, be recovered? MORE THAN WILLING TO GO Senator's Suggestion, Meant as 8ar .casm, Probably Was Wish Clostst to Adventurer's Mfart MaJ.

This last war made about the fortieth Rice has been In, so the veteran Minnesota senator thought lUce had had enough. t. "Cushman," the senator said, "why don't you quit roaming around, go home and run for office? Your male relatives have been governors, sena tors, etc., and there is no reason why you should not serve your ptate." Rice did not eeem greatly impressed, so Nelson became somewhat warmer jfn hisremarks. a "If you're bound to fight, why- not tjpt k^£ Into Bussia,. among the reds, and get some real action?" Nelson said .^sarcastically.1 jWaslilngton 4 ijr Whereupon Rice leaped into the air.

Didn't Know Ty. Hiram Johnson, Itep^Hean Senator £rom California, is one of the hottest 'baseball fans in the couritr.v, Jim Phe lan, Democratic senator, knows noth ing aboufc the game. Here is proof of ,the latter statement. The other day Walter Johnson, pre mier pitcher of the American league, and Ty Cobb, the greatest ball player In all history, perhaps, paid the sen ate a visit. After they had been intro duced all around and been the subject of a great deal of hero worship, l'he lan went over to Eddie Halsey of the senate staff, and asked: "Who is this Ty Cobb, anyhow?" .'i Halsey almost passed away, but he managed to tell Phelnn that "Cobb is a fellow who plays ball for a living." Meantime Johnson was enjoying hugely the visit of the two ball play •rs. I *1- Next Morning. My brother told me this. Marie is Mb lady friend, Mrs. Hemming, the .mother of his chum.

The name "tenderloin" was origi nally applied in New York city to the nineteenth police precinct. The credit of naming It Is attributed to Capt. Al exander Williams, who was placed in command of the precinct September 30, 1876. When he took charge he was asked how he liked the change. "Great," was the response. "I've come from a rump district (an east side district) to the tenderloin," and tenderloin it has remained ever since. The newspapers of other cities soon followed the example of the New York journals in so designating similar dis tricts of their own cities. The Jazz Spirit.

Recently artificial spiders' webs hav* been made from threads of spun quartz. They are wonderfully fine, with much the same appearance as strands of real cobweb and actually catch flies fairly well when the fibers have been stroked with a straw pre viously dipped in castor oil. The oil takes the place of the gluten In an ordinary spider's web, giving to the counterfeit the requisite thickness. It has even been found possible to at tract a spider to such a web by a tuning fork vibrating near the latter, thus suggesting the buzz of a trap ped fly.—philadelphla Ledger. "J ,« '"-i.
