1 P*
Tli* Dinner Hoar la Hlatory.
It is believed by some that the word
dinner springs from a corruption of the
word dixheures, indicating the time at
which in the old Norman days this
meal was taken. The mere idea of hav­
ing dinner at the barbarous hour of 10
o'clock in the morning would, in all
probability, send a modern chef into a
fit, yet it was at this early time that per­
sons of quality, both in this country and
France, partook of the meal. Froissart
mentions waiting upon the Duke of Lan­
caster at 5 in the afternoon, after he had
rapped, and during the reigns of Francis
I and Louis XII of France fashionable
people dined from 10:30 and supped at
the latest at 0 in the
evening. And again,
from a Northumberland household book,
bearing date 1512, wo learn that the
family .rose at 6, breakfasted at 7, dined
at 10, supped at 4, and shut the gates at
9 p. m.
Speaking generally, though the dinner
hour theu, as now, was later in this
country than in France, Louis XIV did
not dine till 12, while his contempora­
ries, Cromwell and Charles II, took the
meal at 1. In 1700 the hour was ad­
vanced to 2, and in 1751 we find that the
Duchess of Somerset's dinner time was
S. In 1760 Cowper speaks of 4 o'clock
as the then fashionable time. After the
battle of Waterloo p. m. was the time
at which the beau monde took their sub­
stantial meal, while at the present day
many of the nobility do not dine until 8
or 9, so we see through 400 years the
dinner hour has gradually moved
through twelve hours of the day—from
9 a. m. to 9 p. m. When the dinner hour
was so early often no previous meal was
taken.—Chambers' Journal.
Skeleton Story.
Dr. W. S. Howell, brother of the
editor of the Vienna Progress, had a
skeleton in a box. One day he pulled
out the ugly, ghastly, grinning skull
and began to handle it. Finally he de­
cided that he wanted that skull opened
ao that he could stndy the inside struc
tnre. There being several seams in the
skull he decided to fill the skull with
peas and soak them in water, thinking
that they would force the seams apart.
He asked the editor to help him, and
the latter poured peas and water into
the hollow bone and corked np the eye
and nose holes to keep them from run­
ning out. Some time after the editor
was startled to
see that peas had sprouted
in the skull and the vines were of most
wonderful growth. Out of the hole
where the backbone is joined to the
neck an army of little vines had grown,
and by some unknown instinctive power
they had twined in and through all the
bones of that body.
The young tendrils had wrapped
around the stovepipe and table legs and
the whole skeleton had been reared up­
ward in the middle of the room.. From
the nostrils and eyes vines were stream­
ing that had clustered around and upon
the presses, stands and tables, and from
each joint hung a pod in likeness of a
•mall skull, the exact counterpart of the
large one. It is rumored that when the
editor beheld these things he left the
office by the window route, and the
skeleton is still in full editorial control.

Tho American As Helve.
All the world admires and wonders at
the American ax helve. The American
ax fitted with that ingeniously curved
and gracefully fashioned handle is a
marvelonsly effective weapon, vastly
more apt for its purposes than the
straight handled headsman's ax with
which the Italian fells trees, or the
broad faced hatchet used for the same
purpose in France. The American ax
helve' is just what might have been ex­
pected of an inventive people laden with
the duty of conquering and civilizing a
forest clad continent. The world had
been using the ax since prehistoric times,
bnt it remained for the American pioneer
to fashion the ideal ax handle, at once
light, strong and elastic. The ax such
as is familiar to all Americans is rare in
Enrope, and it sells in all the British
colonies as the American ax.-
Aa Aeronaut'* Experience.
"1 saw a balloon ascension and para
ebute drop down in Texas not so long
ago," said Ed Reeder, a well known ball
player now with one of the Southwest­
ern league clubs, "that was very inter­
esting. The balloonist Leroy made an
aerial trip from a small town near Aus­
tin one day and was to make a parachute
leap. When at an altitude of about
t,000 feet he suddenly recollected that
his parachute was a brand new one and
had never been tested. Not caring to
risk the thing he attached a fifty pound
sack of sand (ballast) to the parachute
and cut it loose. As he feared, the thing
failed to work right and did not open at
"The sand and parachute dropped like
a streak to the earth, gaining momentum
with every foot of their descent until
they struck the wooden roof of a house
below, crashing through it like through
so much paper. The balloon soared aloft,
and in due time, as the hot air gradually
escaped, sank slowly to earth in the
midst of a farm several miles from the
town. The farm hands had observed its
coming, and when it alighted seized
upon the airship, which was a valuable
oiled silk affair, and claimed it as the
property of the owner of the land be­
cause it had landed there. The rights
of Professor Leroy, who happened to
have landed right with his property,
were entirely ignored. But the captors
were obdurate and finally the professor
"He obtained a writ of replevin for his
balloon from the nearest squire, and a
constable shortly after restored the cap­
tured airship to its rightful owner. The
hole in the roof of the building caused
bjr the professor's sandbag and the dam­
age consequent thereto had to be re­
paired and settled for at his expense.
Had he taken the place of his sandbag
at the parachute's handle the funeral
expenses would have far exceeded the
damage to the roof."—Cincinnati Timet
Tap and Ferryboat# la a Tangle, aa4 a
Olrl la Red Who Liked Oun.
A few minutes before noon the other
day a tow of twenty-two loaded canal
boats swung briskly around the Battery
from the North river. The column was
formed of four fours and two threes,
and was headed by two big tugs. On
one of the canalboats a girl in a vivid
red calico dress and with bare legs
swung in a hammock and chewed gum.
There was a strong ebb tide, so wlMn
the big tugs with their unusually long
tow lines had puffed up the East river
almost to the foot of Wail street and
had slowed up, the twenty-two canal
boats bounded back like balls at the end
of rubber cords, lifting the two lines
dripping from the water.
The line of boats wrapped itself snug­
ly across the openings of five ferry slips.
Five ferryboats wanted to get out and
could not. Fivo ferryboats—the Bay
Ridge, Staten Island, South Brooklyn,
Hamilton avenue and Atlantic street—
wanted to get in and could not. They
all whistled hoarsely, and the passengers
crowded to the sides of the boats to see
what was the matter.
Thousands of people on the ten locked
in and locked out ferryboats saw the
red girl in the hammock, but she swung
and chewed unconcernedly.
The river became dotted with tug­
boats which wanted to got in other slips,
or which just puffed up along to see the
row. The biggest of the big tugs at the
head of the tow whistled for assistance,
and six tugs glided up alongside of the
canalboats and made fast. Then no­
body seemed to know just what was
wanted and a deafening lot of whistle
signals were sounded.
The captains of the ten ferryboats be­
gan making impolite remarks to the
captains of the eight tugs the deck­
hands on the ferryboats became pur­
ple in the face with suppressed emo­
tions the deckhands of the canalboats
drowned the screaming rrtustles with
strange oaths such as are used to exhort
towpath mules, and thousands of de­
layed passengers were bathed in sympa­
thetic perspiration, but that bare legged
girl swung on.
The wharves became lined with idlers,
who gave advice. Policemen appeared.
Other ferryboats, lighters, tenders, an­
nexes, transports and more tugs came
np. They all whistled. The delayed
passengers lost their sympathy the cap­
tains ceased to swear for the want of
breath thedeckhands howled hoarsely,
and when everybody was on the verge
of dissolution the canalboats were pushed
up against ths wharves where they be­
The girl in the ml calico gown swung
peacefully and chewed her gum in placid
meditation.—New York Sun.
Blossoming Fruit Trees.
The peach is always beautiful in
flower, but occasionally some individual
tree is almost startling in its attractive­
ness. The rule seems to be that .the
finer sorts of peaches have less conspicu­
ous bloom. The handsomest trees in
flower are the wild ones along the way­
side in Kentucky, Missouri and Arkan­
sas. Some of these ought to be selected
and treated purely as flowering trees.
Cherries, so far as I know, do not have
blossoms which sport into colors, bat
morello is sufficiently attractive in
white. It is a complete globe of flowers,
and small enough to occupy a place in
an ordinary shrubbery. Then, too, it
has a capacity for blooming when very
young, and a tree three years old will
burst into a miniature flower garden
three or four feet in diameter.
There are few shrubs which can rival
the beauty of a quince tree in full
bloom. I had a small orchard of forty
of these trees covered with flowers and
it was a superb spectacle. I grew a few
of them in my shrubbery for the sake of
the' flowers alone, although the pale
flower is a delight to the eye. There are
few finer shrubs than the dwarf apples,
and both the apples and cherries can be
managed very readily in this way.
Boaelan Fatalism.
One day a Russian village official wac
riding with me in search of some strayed
horses. The black soil was like dust,
and he sighed heavily as his mare sank
in the light stuff.
"Ah," he said, "what land is this? It
is like a woman broken with sorrow.
How can she find food for her child?'
"Has it been so all summer?" I asked.
"Not so, indeed. There was frost in
spring, and men said 'Frost and fail
weather.' But then came the dryness,
and though mass was said in the fields,
it went to nothing. And then we dog
up the drunkards"
"The what?"
"The drunkards, your honor. Often
it is, that when the drunkards are pulled
out of their graves and flung into pools
of water, that rain will come we know
not why. But not only rain came, but
hail and fierce storm and fire, and with­
ered the little that was grown. Then
after that, dryness again and now," he
shrugged his shoulders, "the famine."
"Must there be famine?" I asked.
"Surely," he said with a smile "the
grain we have is soon eaten, and then
"Will no provision be made for the
"Who should make provision? Now
we can buy much and eat much after­
ward—well, the little father will not see
us die!"
So depending on the czar and public
charity, they rest content in making no
provision for the future.—Temple Bar.
Hanter Bridge*' Benr Average.
Nathaniel S. Bridges, who died re­
cently in Charlotte, was one of the oldest
men in town, having nearly reached the
age of eighty-nine years. Mr. Bridges
was well known in eastern Washington
county as a lumberman and framer of
farm buildings. He was a hunter and
trapper of note, having killed the same
number of bears as marked the years of
his life.—Bangor News.
Malting wood Incombustible.
The weight of testimony, thus far, in
regard to the various methods proposed
for rendering wood incombustible, or
nonalterable by heat, appears to be
against the claim that a building encum­
bered with inflammable substances can
pass through such a test uninjured. It
is known that the methods resorted to
for preserving wood against fire are prin­
cipally two, viz., the injections of saline
solutions and the application of a paint
or coating. The former has been found
practically ineffective, and has even been
pronounced by some as of dangerous
tendency in the case of wood of large
dimensions, thoogh the treatment ma}
be applicable to pieces of wood of small
It is remarked that of all the varioui
substances which have been brought for
ward for this purpose, the concentrated
solution of phosphate of ammonia has
proved the most valuable, the use of this
substance, in fact, notwithstanding its
high cost, possessing such peculiar ad­
vantages as to have recommended ite
employment in all cases where the mat
ter of expense is not important.
In the majority of cases coating with
a brush is the really practical solution oi
this question, and. according to Profes
son Bondin and Denny, of Ghent, the
substance most suitable for use in thii
manner is the cyanide of potassium and
asbestos paint.—New York Sun.
There Are No Storks In England.
England is beyond the ordinary rang*
of the stork, though hardly a year passet
without one or two being seen on the
east coast and generally, alas! shot. Un­
like the bittern and ruff, it was no more
common before the fens and swamps
of Cambridge, and Lincolnshire were
drained than it is at the present day.
"Mine honored friend. Sir Thomas
Brown, of Norwich," wrote Willughby.
200 years ago, "says that it is tyit rarely
seen on our coasts." There is, we be­
lieve, no record of its nesting in Eng­
land. and the impossibility of protecting
a migratory bird precludes the hope of
its being introduced into the country.—
Chambers' Journal.
A Mystery About Blueflsh.
Although the bluefish is familiar to
everybody, exactly where Pomatomus
saltatrix comes from or where he is born
few know about He has the wideit
kind of a distribution, for Professor O.
Brown Goode tells us bluefish are found
in the Malay archipelago, Australia,
Cape of Good Hope, in the Mediter­
ranean, and ranges along our coast from
Brazil to Nova Scotia, but no one has
yet established the facts as to its places
of reproduction, or is it known where
bluefish spawn.—New York Times.
New Tork on Hot Day.
To a philosopher inured to extreme
degrees of heat the streets of New York
on a hot day would afford an interesting
study. He would see men and women
boiled in the streets, broiled in the
avenues, grilled in the surface cars,
roasted in the tenement houses, baked
in the squares, bleached in the baseball
parks and melted in the business offices.
The heat fairly dances on the sidewalk
so that it resembles a mirage on a low­
land. The heat pours down from above,
rises from below and on all sides. The
ambulances are kept on a keen gallop.
