Stcry of the "Wandering Jew" Has
Been Common to Ail Peoples
Sines the Crucifixion.
It Is an ancient legend, that of the j
Wnnderinz Jew, and the earliest men- j
4 tion I can find of it is said to be an
account related by an Armenian bishop
in 1228. It has been exploited by
the novelist, the playwright, the poet
, and the historian, for it is a subject
replete with fascinating thrills.
Tales have-differed as to the identity
of the Wandering Jew. One relates >
that he was Kartaphilos. a doorkeeper J

"Go on faster. Jesus." and the reply was.!
"I am going. but thou shall tarry till
I come again." A German legend takes
it up and relates that n the year l."47
the Jew appeared in Hamburg giving
his name as Ahasuerus, saying that
he had been a shoemaker in Jerusalem
at the time of the crucifixion. When
Jesus paused at his door to rest the
cobbler pushed Him away, bidding

Violin Strings.
\ Each string in a violin is of a diff- J
erent thickness, according to the tone j
and tension required. The fourth i
strlug is covered with fine wire, either
a white raetai or real silver, hence
it is often called the "silver string."
Violas, violoncellos and double-basses
have each two covered strings, the
object being to Insure a sufficient
gravity of tone without having toe j
pinmsv n material. The covered!
strings on rhe guitar are upon a basis j
of silk instead of catgut. The best [
gut comes from Italy, which has beei '
' famous for centuries for this product.
Strings are carefully selected anc
graded as to size so that they shall be
uniform. The larger strings for th
bigger instruments are stretched or
frames for three or four days. The
covered strings are finished on a spe,_1

Not So "Locney" After All.
A shrewd lunatic, an inmate of an
asylum. had a shilling which he hid one j
day in a hole. The attendant was j
watching him, so he went after him to j
the place, took the shilling and put a
sixpence in its stead. Next day the
patient came to see his shilling, and
when he examined it he said: "You J
must be in consumption. You're get- {
ting so small and pale."
He put it h"ck into the hole.
The attendant, who had been watch i
ing. went again, took the sixpence and [

Conquering Legions Carried the Eagles
to Victory in Practic;:liy Every
Known Lanct.
in me eany uays 01 i*s History uie
republic of Borne consisted of :t city,
but wars of conquest extended its
dominion over the whole Italian peninsula.
For centuries only the citizens
of Koine had a vote in the election
of the ruler. The republic was
a conquering state, and extended Human
power as far north and west as
Spain, the British isles. Belgium, and
Germany, and as far east as the Black
sea. At iirst the army consisted of a
levy of citizens. As Koine came to
need more than one army at once and
warfare grew more complex a stand>

largely because of its superior equipment
and discipline that the armies
of the barbarians, often superior in
numbers, were defeated a,ntl crushed. !
The unit of the Koman army of that
time was the legio, translated into j
English, the legion. It corresponded to
a regiment in our army but was much
larger. fv>r a Roman legion contained ,
from 4,000 to 0,000 men. They Were
heavy infantry with some cavalry. The .

while the auxilia, or auxiliaries, were
the troops of the second class.
At the time of the death of the first
emperor, Augustus, in the year 14 A.
D.. the Roman army consisted of 2o
such legions. This heavy infantry lost j
much of its importance when the barbarian
invasions altered the character
of ancient warfare and made cnvalry
a more important arm than infantry in i
the late Third and the Fourth cen- :
The word legion came to express

ideas of order and subordination.
From Findings of Danish Medical |
Men, It Would Seem Their Impor- j
tance Is Underestimated.
From the earliest history of man j
baths of hot sand ha\e been used I
to relieve bone and joint disease, es- :
pecially gout and rheumatism. Faber j
and Plum, in a Danish medical jour- j
ual, tabulate the Endings during and
after the sand bath in a numoer or
crses as regards the pulse, respiration, i
temperature at different points of the i
body and the blood pressure, urine !
and changes in weight as well as the j
effect on the pathologic condition, j
Their conclusions are to the effect :
that the hot sand bath seems to com- 1
bine with the benefit from the heat? :
reducing pain and stimulating local i
circulation?a direct action on the
muscles from the weight of the sand.
This relaxes the muscle and tends to
break up the various circles of pain and
muscle contraction. This relaxing er-1
feet on the muscles from the sheer !
weight of the sand lias been over- ;
looked before, they think, but they j
regard it as an important factor in J
the effect, promoting resorption as j
well as combating the possibly unsus-;
pected hypertonia in the muscles. An- j
other advantage of sand baths is that !
they can be graduated with precision ;
to St conditions in the weakest The I
only contraindications are febrile dis-!
eases, valvular defects, great instability j
of the circulation, and possibly anemia
and asthenia.
Wise Animals.
A polar bear in a zoological park
used to sit on a rocky peninsula that \
ran out into a water-filled quarry, i
Visitors were in the habit of throw-!
inp buns into the water and some of j
tliem floated on the surface. It was j
often easy for the bear to collect half j
a dozen by plunging into the pool, but j
he soon discovered a more interesting j
way to get them. At the edge of the i
peninsula it scooped the water gently
with its huge paw and made a current
that brought the buns ashore.
An elephant in another garden used ,
to collect pennies from visitors. When !
it got a penny in its trunk it put it in !
the slot of an automatic macnine
which delivered up a biscuit. The animal
rejected every other coin.
Embarrassing Moment.
One evening my friend and I went
to church. As it was raining we both
wore our rubbers.
We had to go upstairs in the balcony
because the lower part of the
church was tilled. My friend took his
rubbers off and one of them accidentally
fell through the opening in the
railing. The dirty wet rubber hit a
bald-headed man squarely on the top
of his head. lie turned around and
gazed at us long and hard. So did
everyone else. We made our escape
hurriedly with profuse blushes.?Ex- j
Temperature of Coal Mines.
The bureau of mines says that coal
mines are not warmer in winter and
colder in summer. The heat of the
earth increases uiie degree for every
100 feet of depth. Coai mines are not
usually very deep and therefore not
effected to any great extent by tne
heat of the earth. The temperature
of the mine depends upon the location
and the depth.

Mountain Folk Make Use ot ueaai;
Poison for Definite Purpose?
Also Fed to Horses.
Inhabitants of Austria, in thi
mountains adjoining Hungary, are ii
the habit of eating arsenic. The effec
of the poison, when taken in moderat<
quantities, is to give a freshness to th<
complexion, and afterward to irapar
a certain degree of embonpoint. An
other advantage which the eaters de
rive from the use of the poison is t<
have their respiration raeintateu i>
ascending the mountain. They placi
a little piece of arsenic in their mouth
and rney ascend the greatest height:
with ease.
Grooms and coachmen at Viennj
give arsenic to their horses. The:
sometimes throw a pinch of it amonj
the oats, and sometimes tie up a smal
bit of it in a linen rag, which* the]
attach to the bit when the horse i:
harnessed. The effect on the horse
is to put them in tiigh condition, win
the skin smooth and shining, and t<
increase their spirits.
The carters in the mountainous coun
tries of Austria are also in the habi
of giving arsenic to their horses whei
about to ascend a steep road, with th<
result that the ascent is made mud
easier for the animals.
