Duty of Encouragement.
As ships meet at sea, a moment to
gether, when words of greeting must
be spoken, and then turn away into
the deep, so men meet in this world;
and I think we should cross no man's
path without hailing him, and if he
needs, giving him supplies. Henry
Ward Beecher.
Englishman's Criticism.
An observant Englishman who has
been making a study of the American
woman and her defects says that in
stead of the nasal twang, with which
the American woman is credited, he
found that they speak in drawling,
dragging tones, due to a laty, careless
management of the voice.
"What wretched luck I have. Be
fore my son was a doctor, I was ill

A camel can easily carry a weight
of 1,000 pounds on its back about four
times as much as a horse can carry.
The camel begins work a; the age of
four and is useful for half a century;
the horse, as a rule, is nearly played
out at the age of 15.

The Wrecker of Sellly.
As far back as the time of Ilenry I.
there were royal grants of "the islands
end their wrecks," and frequent was
the phrase in centuries following. With
royal encouragement, why should they
not be wrsckers? One Sunday, long
ago. in Scilly, service was in progress
when there came the cry of "Wreck !"
The men started from their seats. In
a moment there would have been a
stampede, but they cowered back as
the minister sternly thundered a warn
ing. He strode to the door. Again his
voice arose. "Let's all start fair!" he
shouted, throwing off impeding cassock
as he ran, while his cougregation la
bored at his heels. Most curious of all
wrecks was that of a bark, with a car
go of beads, that went ashore 200 years
ago. So generous has been the ocean
with this treasure that throughout
these two centuries it has intermittent
ly been tossing beads ashore, yet so
frugally that the supply is not yet ex
hausted, for in a few minutes' search
I found that some had been thrown
there since the last search of the is
landers. Ilobert Shackleton la Har

An Old Meat Bill.
The state historian of New York in
compiling some records brought to light
some amendments to laws confirmed at
"ye General Court of assizes held ln
New Yorke, beginning on ye 5th & end

The following catches the eye:

Almost the last work of the Belgian
astronomer Houzeau was an article in
which, while arguing in favor of a dec
imal division of time, he pointed out
the origin of the double set of twelve
hours represented on our watch and
clock faces. The ancient inhabitants
of Mesopotamia chose the number 12
as an arithmetical base because it has
four divisors viz, 2, 3. 4 and 6, while
10 has only two divisors viz, 2 and 5,
They counted twelve hours In the day
and twelve in the night, measuring the
day by the progress of the sun and the
night by the progress of the' stars
across the sky. This system, prevail
ing over all others, has come down to
us, and so our watches bear on their
faces a souvenir of those ancient days
when the sun Berved for a clock hand
half of the time and the stars the other
Bankes and His Home.
Animal trainers of the old days led
adventurous lives. In 1600 all London
was talking of a man named Bankes,
servant to the Earl of Essex, who had
taught his horse to count and perform
a number of feats, including mounting
to the top of St. Paul's cathedral, while
"a number of asses," as the historian
puts it, "brayed below." Sir Walter
Raleigh in his history says of Bankes
that he "would have shamed all the
enchanters of the world, for whatso
ever was most famous among them
could never master or Instruct any
beast as he did his horse." When
Bankes took his horse to Rome both
were burned for witchcraft.
A Possible Exception.
A high schoolteacher was examining
the physiology class.
"IIow many ribs have you, Charles?"
he asked. ,
"Why er I don't know, said
"Didn't the text books state V. be
then queried somewhat sharply.
"Yes oh, yes of course, but; you
see, I'm long waisted."
Ben Butler's Retort.
An old lawyer ln speaking about Gen
eral Ben Butler said: "Ben Butler was
a terror and a torment to the Judges.
On one occasion Judge Sanger, having
been bullied and badgered out of all
patience, petulantly asked, 'What does
the counsel suppose I am on this bench
for?' Scratching his head a minute,
Butler replied, "Well, I confess your
honor's got me there. "
Eair Answer.
A Liverpool paper tells the pathetic
story of one A., who is compelled to
grow a beard to ward off pneumonia
and other ills. The woman with whom
he has fallen ln love, however, declines
to marry him unless he will shave.
"What," asks our contemporary,
"should A. do?" The answer seems
easy: Keep the beard and cut the
There Is a certain development of
love in which the covetous longing of
two people for one another has yielded
to a higher mutual thirst for an Ideal

true name Is friendship.
