Burial Cmmftmm. The Turks perhaps were the first peo pie to use ornamental burial grounds such as we call cemeteries, but as to when this custom was first adopted In the land of the crescent no one seems to know. The earlier Jews buried their dead In the earth, that method being without doubt the most ancient burial mode known to man. The very earliest Egyptl»ns seem to have understood the art of embalming and to have practiced it from time out of memory. The an cient Greeks and Honians cremated the body, the ashes only receiving sepul ture, except in case of illustrious war riors, statesmen, etc., these latter being buried unburned as a special mark of favor. Some ancient tribes preserved only parts of the body and burned or burled the remainder. The parts retained and preserved, dried or In liquid, varied ac cording to tribal notions. VN ith some It was the heart that was thought to be too sacred for cremation or burial with others the liver, ears, nose, tongue or fingers. The Tartars of 2.(100 years ago preserved only the thumb and toe Balls of their dead. Follow** Ordera. ...

The speaker said: "The truth oft he matter is, there are few good beef cattle in this state, but so long a.s farmers undertake to rai.se beeves it behooves them to raise the best quality, and fit them for the mar Wet in a manner for the greatest re turns. No farmer is rich enough, or even ipoor enough to afford to raise cat tle that will go begging for a pur chaser.

"As in everything" vise, the feeder rang*' on the rich native gra^sbe must have an ideal beef animal in his out to and a herd boy dot's the rest most of the time. But the North Dakota farmer does not as a rule get the best results from his steers and in order to do so will be obliged to more closely follow the example of the eastern feed er.

The beef eating nations rule the world, and the people are get ting more and more particular a6 they learn the difference between nice, juicy, toothsome beef witli fine flavor and tasteless, tough beef, such as is the result of ill-breeding combined with poor feed and neglect. Flavor is one of the essentials to promote digestion. applicable to all food for man or brute, so if we may exp^t good digestion we should have fine flavored hay, cut in season and cured as much as possible in the shade.

Turner, the great landscape painter, Was a curious mixture of parsimouy and generosity, determined money grubbing and unreckoning devotion to Ills art. He would drive a hard bar I gain one day and the next refuse to sell at any price. Intending purchas ers were sometimes excluded from his gallery, and the refusal of admission was communicated in anything but a j-polite manner. Mr. Gillott, the wealthy pen manu fncturer of Birmingham, ouce proved npss himself equal to the task of storming the castle In the teeth of the gruff art- I 1st and his doorkeeper and achieving a bargain. A book on Turner gives tiie story. I Mr. Gillott was met at the door of Turner's house by an old woman, who opened the door anil asked the gentle man's business. "Can't let 'e in!" she snapped out when he told her, and tried to slam the door. But Mr. Gillott had put his foot in aide the door and without waiting for permission pushed pust the enraged Janitress and hurried upstairs to the gallery. Turner met him like a spider whose web has been Invaded. The in truder Introduced himself and sai. that he had come to buy. "Don't want to sell!" was the an swer. "Have you seen our Birmingham pic tures, Mr. Turner?" inquired the visit or, as calmly as if he had been received as a gentleuSin should lc. "Never heard of 'em." said Turner. Mr. Gillott took from his pocket some Birmingham bank notes. "Mere paper remarked Turner, who evidently enjoyed the joke.

His tone—perhaps also the sight of the "mere paper"—conquered timer, and when the visitor departed lie had bar gained for several valuable pictures. Pedlffreea of Artblir. UOFIM. The Arabs have no written pedl rrecs. It is all an affair of memory and of notoriety In the tribe. Certain alleged pedigrees of Arabian horses, couched in romantic language and rep resented as carried in a small bag and bung by a cord arouud the animals neck, have been published, but these are forgeries got up probably by horse dealers, Egyptian, Syrian or Persian. The breeding of every horse is a mat ter of common knowledge, and it would be Impossible for his owner to fabricate pedigree so as to deceive the natives, even if he were so inclined. The Bedouins, it seems necessary to admit, are in general great liars, and they will He (to a stranger) about the age, the qualities or the ownership of a horse, but they will not lie about his pedigree, even when they can do so with impunity.

The importance of examining closely the hair found on weapons was shown In a case in which a hatchet having clotted blood and hair adherent to it was produced as evidence against a prisoner suspected of murder in a little country town, it was tound ut:d his bed. This, with other circumstantial evidence, had turned public opinion strongly against the prisoner, but wher the hair was examined by a micro scopist who chanced to be in the court room it was found not to be but that of some animal. This circum stance led to a more complete sifting of the evidence, and the accused wa9 acquitted. It turned out that lie had killed a dog with the hatchet and had carelessly thrown the weapon under the bed. So bis life literally hung on a hair. 1 Out of A«».

In France and I believe in Kuropcnn countries it is a most ominous sign for a riilcr. and especially a soldier, to want a horse with four white feet.

The day of his death, after several ominous events which had happened to him that day. such as a broken mirror, a broken pipe, the picture of his wife broken at the very moment when he went to look at it for the last lime, he mounted a horse not his own without glancing at the feet.

What la Said Abool Eara. You never saw a |xet or a painter with large, coarse ears that stand out from the head like extended wings. That kind of an auricular appendage betokens coarseness of mind. A long, narrow ear that lies flat to the head is a sign of pugnacity Never trust a man with a thin, waferlike ear. He was lorn a hypocrite, if not a thief. A very small ear betokens a trilling mind, lack ing decision. ICars sit very high on the head indicate narrowness of mind. A large, well shaped ear that d'X's not spread itself to the breeze is indicative of gencrousneaB. Most of the world compellers had large cars and well de veloped noses. Although there are so mail)' millions of people in the world, no two pairs of ears are alike. Eacb bas a marked individualit. Military Salutea.

The officer's salute with the sword has a double meaning. The first position, with the hilt oppo site the lips. Is a repetition of the cru sader's action in kissing the cross hilt of bis sword In token of faith and fealty, while lowering the point after ward implies either submission or friendship, meaning in either case that It is no longer necessary to stand on guard.
