The peasantry of Greece Ormly be lieve that the future of every child la determined by the three fates, known by, the name of the aforaL In the popular mind this trio of fates are supposed to be three old and wrinkled women whose habitation Is a moun tain care. They come simultaneously to a house where a .new baby has made Its appearance, says the London Globe. When they are expected all furni ture is set aside so that their aged and tottering feet may not be hin dered, and refreshments In the shape of honey, enkes, bread and wine ore placed ready ' for " these Important though Invisible guests. Money, too. Is plaeed for tneui as a bribe to get their favor for the baby, so that his future may be one long, sweet song, the superstition being that all things good 'and bud are in the giving of the fates. On no account must the child's benufy be alluded 'to when the Moral are present, ns this will certainly make Its good looks disappear. Marks on a baby's skin are looked upon as sent by these harbingers of weal or woe. Ill luck is supposed to be the lot of the children who rut their upper teeth first. There ore one or two African tribes who so firmly believe this that they are snld to kill all babies but those wboie lower teeth appear first Another race of people in the dark coutluent see all the signs of bad for tune In twins.' nnd so they avoid It by slaying all of them.

The kettledrum, he contended, was perfectly compe tent to produce atmosphere as well as rhythm, JErep to tune the Instrument three) things were required perfect musical ear, a fipe sense of touch and five years' experience. . After playing over a kettledrum melody, written eighty years ago. from Meyerbeer's "Robert le Dlable," Mr. Cleather con tinued. " I venture to say that, outside the musical profession, not one person in a hundred of those who listen to an orchestra In England today knows that tympaot have notes and van give out a melody." No Instrument, he added, had a greater range of power than the kettledrum, for none could be played, more softly, and none bad greater pen etrating power. Dundee Advertiser.

The completest and most perfect of whales Is a whale so small that 1,500. 000 such whales could find room in a space not larger than an ordinary pin's bead. But In that vanishing speck of matter there is already determined Just bow all the Innumerable cells of the future whale's body are to grow, how many of them are to be and where the bone cells, the muscle cells, the nerve cells and all lta other bodily cells are to find their proper places in his body to the end of that whale's life. , But much more than that. In t bat one primordial cell, scarcely imagina ble for Its minuteness, are stored the physical memories, so to speak, of that whale's ancestors back to the first whale. Therefore as he grows he will show that whales used to walk, for legs complete to the last leg bone will be found in the adult whale in the proper place, for legs, but now tucked under his skin because they are no longer usable, much as an English no bleman bangs In his ball his ancestors' coats of mail as mementos of days now gone by since the coming of rifle bul lets. Moreover, such a minute whale is nothing but a whale, because be can not possibly grow into a fish any more than he can grow into a bird, for whales are mammals and therefore separated by an impassable biological gulf from all fishes. Lastly, in that primal cell not only does there reside the whole ancestral heritage of former whales., but there Is ample provision for an indefinite number of future whales.

GOING WAS GOOD AROUND THE POLE AS COOK SAID Principal Difference in Two Stories Concerns Tempera ture, Cook's Figures Being 59 Degrees Below Peary's. (American News Service) London, Sept. 11. Scientists de clared today that Dr. Frederick. A. Cook's story of his dash to the north pole and back is both corroborated and discredited by the installment of Com mander Robert E . Peary's account as published here today In the Times. A striking similarity in the descrip tion of the Arctic Ice fields beyond the 87th parallel of latitude and with in the very shadow of the pole in the narratives of the two explorers a viv idly similar description of the smooth, glassy surface and the rapid time these conditions enabled both men to make, went far to shatter the skepticism con cerning Cooks exploit and yet In the matter of temperatures the figures are different, Peary giving the temperar ture at 30 degrees below zero, while Dr. Cook placed it at S3 degrees be low, a vast discrepancy. Beyond the 89th parallel, the temperature rose 15 degrees, according to Peary. Bears Out Dr. Cook. Cook made no mention of warmer weather. So identically do certain other details bear out the statements of Dr. Cook that today scientists and geographers who had held aloof from the controversy, declared their faith In the physician-explorer's story, while of course, crediting Commander Peary's story and using it as a basis of comparison. In the matter of temperature the big gest discrepancy exists. Peary speaks of the temperature ranging from 33 de grees to 12 on April 7, the day be left the pole. Dr. Cook's figures ranged 50 degrees lower After leaving the 88th parallel, Peary set out alone In his dog sledge, leaving the other members of the par ty to break camp and follow him. Among the party was one keen young Eskimo, who had been promised a ri fle with ammunition and a boat if he would complete the journey to the northern goal with Peary. So eager was this young chap for the daring dash that it led to a question of his enthusiasm until it was found that ho was in love with an Eskimo girl but was too poor to marry her until he became an Eskimo plutocrat, which merely consists in owning a gun and a boat. Description of Ice Fields. Peary's description of the Ice fields beyond the 88th parallel bears out Cook's description. The surface, says the Times account, was smooth and as level as a glacial fringe, brok en only occasionally with ridges and with very little open water. The dogs were able to proceed at a gallop and in one run of four hours immediately after passing the 88 th parallel Peary made 20 miles. At the 89th parallel the temperature was 40 degrees below zero. Passing the 89th Peary made 25 miles in a single day in a bitter wind so cold that the flesh cracked) and even the Eskimos com plained. Beyond the 89th the sky was som bre, the horizon smoky and gray, the desolation undescriable. Not a living thing in sight and the solitude broken only by the groaning of the greenish ice floe over which the sledge sped. Cook had called it a desolate spot the solitude unbroken and the silence and loneliness oppressive. As Peary proceeded the going grew better and faster time was made, another feature completely vindicating Dr. Cook and bearing out, apparently his narrative completely. In twelve hours the Peary party was able to make 40 miles. There was not a single stretch of open water to hind er the march. The goal was almost in sight Detour About the Pole, Commander Peary took observa tions at frequent intervals, until he had established his feat. The com mander had realized the ambition of his life; he was at the north pole. A detour of some 18 miles was made about the Pole. observations being tak en almost continuously to establish not only proof of the discovery, but for scientific values subsequently, : On the afternoon of April 7, the day after the pole had been discovered, a sounding was made five miles from the north pole. The plummet dropped 9,000 feet In the sea and still did not touch, bottom. Then started the race home. - " : A gale sprang up with biting winds and blinding snow. Luck favored Peary just as good fortune had favor ed Cook, the year before. When Peary arrived at the Roosevelt, filled with joy at the great feat he had just con- sumated. his rejoicing was turned to sorrow by learning of the death of Prof. Ross G. Marvin, i The Pally Chronicle Is sending a correspondent, to New Tork to watch the Peary-Cook controversy at close range. The Terrible "Ty I. a-' f "V If i Mrk& ill 1 Jj J I '.-TV t , . ii i .

BBSSMBBSSB STATEMENT BY HERRMANN Cincinnati, Sept 11. John Kline the holdout catcher of the Chicago National league club, will not be eligi ble to play with any national agree ment club for the next three years as a result of playing with his Kansas City team of semi-professionals against the Logan 8cuare team of Chicago, which Is said to contain sev eral players who are Ineligible. Less than six months ago the national com mission passed a rule banishing from organized baseball for a term of three years any player who should be guilty of playing with or against a team har boring ineligible players while on the reserve list of a national agreement' team. When his attention was called to a report from Chicago today that Kling had played against the Logan Squares August Herrmann, chairman of the national baseball commission, said: "It It's true that Kling has played against Ineligible players, and the re port from Chicago indicates that he has done so. Uilngs look mighty bad for the big catcher. He has laid him self liable to suspension from organiz ed baseball for a term of three years, and I cant see how It will be possible for him to evade the sentence.
