The Coui er believes that Hon. S.

from tliis district and candidate for

a second terni without a contest. The
general custom has been to give in
•umbents oi' that office two terms,
.tiid, aside from that, there are many
easons why Mr. North should be
similarly treated. Two years ago he
nadea galLnt fight against a situa

Uowever, raised the standard to true

To Use Small Orientai Ruga.
The abuse of the sinall orientai rug,
1 no less an object of art than of utility,
is an especially common mistake. By
ali logie any rug used for a tloor cover
ing should emphasize tlie function of
the floor as a solid foundation under
our feet To do this it must lionor and
obey the lines of the floor, at least that
part which it decorates. Yet time and
again, wliere several small rugs are
used for the carpefìng of a room, we
find them ali throwu down on the
bias, often at dsfferent angles. With
none of the sides of a rug parallel to
the bounding lines of the floor, we are
made conscious of a new decorative
idea, one built on top of and at cross
purposes with the originai one. Chairs.
tables aud other pieees of furnitnre
must then be placed either to conform
with the position of the rugs or with
the structural arrangement of the
room; both sets of lines they cannot
follow. So, at best, we have a con
fusion of ideas, a room which seems
to rest on an insecure foundation.—

Hissed His Own Play.
Baron de Frenilly, who flgured prom-
Lnently in France during the days of
"the terror," must surely have been the
only author who ever hissed his own
play. This was entitled "Les Trois
Tantes" and was produced at the
Vaudeville theater, Paris.
"Before half of the first scene had
been played I said to myself, 'Oh, but
this is execrable!' The public was of
the same opinion and, while my friends
kept applauding, hissed with ali ita
strength. I ended by heartily hissing
myself, for the further the play pro
gressed the more convineed I was that
the people were right.
"On leaving the theater a friend who
was not In the secret of the authorship
said to me, 'What a piece of extrava
l gance, what a wretched farce!' 'De
testable,' I replied, and whatever he
said I went one better. 'lt is said to
be by Comte de Segur,' he continued.
'No,' rejoined I; 'it was written by me.*

Riddle Making Epochs.
There have been epochs at which rid
dle making has been more especially in
vogue, and such epochs would appear
to occur at seasons of fresh iute ec
tual awakening. Such an epoch ti ere
was at the first glimmering of ne\* in
tellectual light in the second hai' of
the seventeenth century. This was the
age of Aldhelm, bishop of Sherborne,
1 the first in the roll of Anglo-Latin
poets. He left a considerable nun ber
of enigmas in Latin hexameters. Aid
helm died in 709. Before his tme
there was a collection of Latin rid le»
that bore the name of Symphoslus. Of
this work the date is unknown. W*»
only know that Aldhelm used it, sud
we may infer that it was then a re '»nt
product. The riddles of Symphf. ius
were uniform in shape, consisting i .ich
of three hexameter lines.—Co rr filli
Nltroglycerin, though an explosire,
is rarely used by itself, belng mlxed
wtth gunootton to form blasting
tin or with a certain earth to m ike
dynamite. Huge quantities of the ex
plosive liquid are kept in casks, and
the wood of these casks becomes so
highly explosive through being sos'ied
with the liquid that a kick will blow
tbem to pieces. It is not safe to use the
empty casks again for refllllng them
, with the explosive, nor can they be
used in any other way, even for lire
wood. There is only one thlng, ind< ed,
that can be done, and that is to ex
plode the casks. They are placed on
waste ground and usually exploded by
means of a rifle bullet fired into them.
Very little of the cask remains after
the explosion.—London Standard.
