In fact, one occa sionally sees a baby being carried in its mother's hood with only a cotton shirt on, despite the fact that the ther mometer registers 20 degrees below zero. The mother's hood is the baby's cradle. Being made of seal or deer skin, it is warm and wind proof. The infant also has the benefit of the heat of its mother's body and is out of harm's way. If it were laid in a bas ket cradle in the tent it would be very much in the way and would always be in danger of falling a prey to the wolfish Eskimo dogs that prowl round the door by day and night, ever ready to pick up a dainty morsel.

Now if You Can Toll Which Fair Ono Mo Selected. A eeruin Turk, according to the story, was once married to a veiled lady in white ia the presence of the sultan. A* aeon as the ceremony was concluded the bride mysteriously dis appeared. The was led into an adjoining room, where stood twelve ladies aIJ dressed ia white, but without veils. "Cbooae from the twelve." exclaimed the sovereign, "her that ia your brtds." Aa the sever seen her face the commaafl bewildered him. "If yem make a mistake." added b majesty, "your Mfe obaH pay the for fait." The poor blsb walked up and down She row of beauties, but saw nothing whatever to aid his choice.

Oae ef the remaining two frowned, the other smiled. "The frownfay eae," he thought, "is my hride, ftxr she expresses her displeas are and impatience at my ignorance. "No," he aaid to himself; "it must be the smfilng one, for she desires to in vite me to her." After debating the subject in his mind until hia time was up he boldly made a selection from the two. He was successful. He had regained his bride. Which was she —the one who frowned or the one who smiled? Trapping Baboons. Hagenbeck in his book, says that bab oons are caught in traps made much like the huts of savages. Food is put into the huts, and once the baboons go Inside a trapdoor closes behind them. Outside baboons make a great to do and urge the prisoners to escape. When the trappers come the captured baboons are terror stricken and try to force their heads through the walls of the huts. One baboon was caught three times in the same trap, and sev eral when turned loose got back into the same trap a second time. When the baboons are carried away all their comrades thereabout climb Into trees and scream out to the prisoners, who answer in sad, mournful voices. On one occasion some big Arabian baboons were trapped, when 2,000 or 3,000 bab oons hurled themselves upon the trap pers, who had hard work to save them selves with firearms and clubs. As the trappers were forced back the victori ous baboons tore up the trap and turn ed loose the captured baboons. 1..;., a| • I' CHEERFULNESS.

Usually a man attempts to put his name on his metal possessions bj scratching with a file or knife poini and makes the poorest sort of a job It is really very easy to write on anj metal—the blade of a jackknife, * watchcase. skates—if one happens to know how, and the attractiveness of the inscription is limited only by the artistic ability of the individual. Cover the place where you wish to write with a thin coating of melted beeswax. When the wax is cold write plainly with any pointed instrument, being particular to cut the letters through the wax to the metal. Then mix one ounce of muriatic acid and one-half of an ounce of nitric acid, or smaller quantities in the same pro portions (and remember that those acids are deadly poisons), and apply the mixture to the lettering with # feather, carefully filling each letter. Allow the acids to remain from one to ten minutes, according as the etch- Lng is to be light or deep. Next dip the article in water, wash out the acida and melt off the wax, and the thing ia done. A little oil should be applied aa a finishing touch. Gold, silver, iron or steel can be marked in this way.— Youth's Companion. The Hungarian Crown. The Hungarian crown worn at their accession by the emperors of Austria as kings of Hungary is the identical one made for Stephen and used at his coronation over 800 years ago. The whole is of pure gold, except the set tings, and weighs almost exactly four teen pounds. The settings above allud ed to consist of fifty-three sapphires, fifty rubies, one emerald and 338 pearls. It will be noticed that there are no diamonds among these precious adornmeats. This is accounted for by the oft quoted story of Stephen's aver sion to sueh gems because he consid ered them "unlucky." A False Alarm. "I know something, I do, about a mqfpber of this family," said little Bobby Slithers triumphantly to his old er sister, Maud. "Oh, dear!" exclaimed Miss Slithers. "Half a dollar is all I have, Bobby. Will you promise not to tell if I give you that?" "Sure, I will," answered Bobby in surprise. "But it ain't nothin' on you, sis. It was the cook and the iceman." —Birmingham Age-Herald. Curiosity. Little Virginia, aged five, had been put to bed, but not to sleep. From her bedroom came a little voice: "Daddy, come here. I want to tell you something." Daddy wasn't anxious to be disturb ed, so, thinking she was about to go to sleep, he said, "Well, wait till I eat this apple." He read for fifteen or twenty min utes, when again she called out, "Dadr dy, how big is that apple?"—lndianap olis News. Mighty In Titles. - N The ruler of Turkey in addition to the titles sultan and kha-khan (high prince and lord of lords), also claims sovereignty over most districts, towns, dties and states in the orient, specify ing each by name and setting out in each of his various titles "all the forts, citadels, purlieus and neighborhood thereof" in regular form. His of ficial designation ends, "Sovereign also of diverse nations, states, peoples and races on the face of the earth." All this Is in addition to his high position as "head of the faithful" and "supreme lord of all the followers of the proph et," "direct and only lieutenant on earth of Mohammed." The Safe Spot. "So when you had 200 feet start to escape you ran Instead directly up to the bear whet, your gun failed, to work? I don't know whether you were a foolhardy hero or a rattled fool!" de clared the doctor as he sewed up Smith's numerous wounds. "I was neither," explained Smith. "I used remarkable judgment at a critical moment You see, the bear was between Jones and myself. I saw Jones was about to fire, so I took shel ter at the safest spot—with the bear." —New York Sun. Keen Soented Deer. Under the most favorable atmos pheric conditions deer can scent a man at the distance of a mile and a half. If he is smoking the range may be in creased to two miles. They have been known to refuse to cross a man's track more than four hours after he had passed, but rain may destroy the scent in ten minutes.—St. James' Gazette. How Much Iron Can We Make? Iron furnaces of this country, in cluding all in blast or idle, could, ac cording to the Iron Age. "appawntly produce about 40,000,000 tons if they remained iij blast a year." This would he 9,000,000 tons above the maximum calendar year output. The Iron Age doubts, however, if all the furnaces could stay in blast a full year, and suggests a trifle over 38,000,000 tons as maximum capacity. Very Annoying. "I can't bear these men novelists," declared one lady. "Why not?" the other inquired. "They ealmly tell yon that the hen) ine wore a gown which fascinated a duke and not a word as to what it was made of or how it was trimmed." Louisville Courier-Journal. Untrue. "Your leading lady is not tu-e to life." "What's the matter?" "In the first act she receives a tele gram, and you have her open it with out fear or trembling."—Detroit Free Press.
