I walk along a dark, lonely road
my ears are on the alert. I glance to

May It not be the memory disk giving
off its record? My savage ancestor
learned by long years of experience to
be specially on his guard In a lonely
place and in the dark. When my in
dignation is thoroughly roused I find
my hands clinch, there Is a tightening
of the lips, the teeth are more plainly
visible, and the whole attitude Is sug
gestive of making a spring. Here Is
a trait of early man, who gathered him

I have often noticed that when people

prejudice for raw meat found too
strong for him, so strong that his nose
rejected it at once.—Nineteenth Cen

One may begin the attempts of free
expression, and thus an independent
use of the language, with a compara

stress upon the fact that the free and

In writing is the most efficient exercise
In acquiring a language. In mere con

which would sternly demand correc-*
Hon—and correction, too, easily kept
In mind—when the written words look
us In the face. To quicken the efficacy
of this exercise requires, of course, a
teacher able not only to pound gram
matical rules Into the head of the pu
pil, but also to stir up in the study of
the language a mentally active Inter

The average velocity of the wind Is
low, in most places between five and
ten miles an hour, corresponding re
spectively to wind pressure of from
two ounces to eight ounces a square
foot. During portions of nearly every
day, however, somewhat higher veloc
ities are recorded, since the averages
contain considerable periods of very
light breezes occurring often within a
few hours before and after sunrise
and sunset. There are few days with
out periods of brisk breezes of from
to twenty miles an hour.

There was a stiff breeze blowing.
The demonstrator took from his pocket

The match burned with hardly a flick

his pipe with great satisfaction.
'That's a trick worth knowing," he
remarked. "Here's another. Some
times you get a spark on top of your

Some persons advise raking after
