A QUEER BUSINESS.
The Way Houses on Fire Were
Bought In Ancient Rome.
One of the strangest businessas in
ancient Rome is mentioned by Juvenal
in his satires. It consisted of buying
houses on fire. The speculator hurried
to the scene, attended by slaves carry
Ing bags of money and others carrying
tools, judged the chancer of salvage
and made a bid to the distracted house
owner, who was glad to accept any
thing, as a rule. The bargain struck in
all haste, this earliest of fire assurers
set his slaves to work and secured
what he could. Sometimes even he put
out the flames and so made a coup.
It was a business for capitalists, but
the poorest who speculated in a small
way could hardly lose if he had pres
ence of mind enough to grasp the
chances. Thus Cato the Elder, as
well as Crassus, laid the foundation
of his great wealth. He gradually
collected a force of carpenters, masons
and such artificers-slaves, of course
which reached 50) men. Not only did
he buy houses on fire, but also, enlarg
ing upon the common practice, he made
a bid for those adjoining which stood
in danger. His proposals were com
monly welcoine, we learn, so helpless
were the people and so great the peril.
By this means Crassus became the
greatest owner of house property in
Rulers by Divine Right.
Charlemagne was the first great
ruler who proclaimed himself king and
emperor by divine right. He did not
allege, however, that the divine right
had come to him direct from heaven,
but based his claim on the fact that
the bishop of Rome, then the spiritual
ruler of the Christian world, had
anointed him and placed the crown of
the holy Roman empire on his head.
The term "Dei Cratia" ("by divine
right" or "the grace of God") was thus
used to express the right to rule as
coming from the head of the church
until the days of. Luther and the refor
mation. Then the power of the church
was, so- shaken that rulers no longer
felt sure that they could- rest- unchal
lenged on their right to rule as given
to- them by Rome. So the term "by
divine right" became construed as
meaning that the kings .ruled by. right
of God's will as expressed in the Old
Testament, in which God is .recorded
as having chosen-king himself to rule
The. Term "Greenhorn."
The term "greenhorn" originated in
this way: The pioneers of the west
were much given to hunting deer. It
was a fact known to the early settlers
that when the horn of a fawn began to
grow there was a ring of green hair
around the spot where the horn was
coning out. It. was considered a dis
graceful thing for a hunter to kill a
fawn, a cruel act, and the killing time
was regulated by the growth of the
horn. There was a sort of unwritten
law that. no one should kill a male
fawn before its horns could be seen.
A-person -who was so unthoughtful as
to kill s deer under the proper age was
called a "greenhorn.": He was so named
becasethe young horn of the deer and
thehair around it were still green. The
use of the appellation gradually spread
until it was applied to all raw or inex
perienced youths or persons easily im
Baa. Its. Teeth In Its Stomach.
:There is a curious snake (Hydraci
yetl) in South Africa that lives wholly
upon birds' eggs. It has no teeth or
signs of teeth in the mouth, its whole
dental array being located in the stom
ach. Buckl-and says that they are not
true teeth, but that they serve all pur
poses. They grow from the center of
each vertebra. They pass through the
walls of the stomach and are covered
with enamel, just like true teeth. This
is nature's provision for breaking eggs
without running the risk of losing the
precious contents, as would be the case
if this egg eating serpent had its teeth
in the proper place. When the egg is
safely inside, the abdominal walls con
tract and crush it against that long
row of vertebral teeth.

South African Wafels.
South African "wafels" vastly differ
from our waffles merely in being made
with wine as a "moistener" rather
than with milk for the principal liquid
ingredient. In South Africa when they
are going to make "wafels" they take
a pound of flour, three-quarters of a
pound of butter, half a pound of sugar,
eight eggs, half a pint of wine and a
teaspoonful of sifted cinnamon. The
butter and eggs are creamed; then they
mix in alternately cone egg and one
spoonful of flour, add the wine and
spice and bake in a waffle iron. -

It is said by some authorities that
the honeymoon, or month after mar
riage, takes its sweet sounding title
from a practice of the ancieit Teutons,
who drank honey wine (hydromel) for
thirty days after a wedding.
A far more simple and direct deriva
tion is found in associations common
to many times and people. The words
month and moon have come to us from
one source, the Anglo-Saxon mona,
which is formed from an old root, ma,
to measure. The moon thus measures
time, and Dryden links it with its
kindred month when he speaks of "one
revolving moon." Honey is an obvious
equivalent for anything enjoyable and
sweet, and Shakespeare attaches it
closely to the tender passion when he
says, "honeying and making love."
Anthony Trollope has used honey
moon as a verb---Some decent sort of
body to honeymoon along with me,"
and in an old volume of the London
Tatler there is an interesting sentence
which clinches the connection between
moon and month-"Sometimes the par
ties fly asunder even in the midst of
courtship and sometimes grow cool in
the very honey month."

-Thie atnd -of the Modern Actor.
The mind of the modern actor-we
speak, of course, of the many, not of
all-lies in his dancing legs, his sid~e
splitting grimaces, his "business," his
exaggerations of peculiar lives of to
clay. The mind thus devoted to the
lighter tasks of jocularity, skipping
also from one author's jokes to those
of another on a moment's notice, as its
possessor skips from town to town and
from stage to stage, is not a mind that
can suddenly turn to the contemplation
and the study of Shakespeare with any
hope that the lines of the poet will get
the better of thxe encounter. The actor
who is to play Shakespeare acceptably
must not frivol awvay his Intellectual
dignity. One cannot sing "Mary Had
a Little Lamb" with all the enthusi
asm of his soul for 300 nights and
hope to be equal to the Magnificat or a
Te Deuma or Siegfrieds Rhine journey
on the three hundred and first night.
Te tasks to which the modern English
and American manager puts the Eng
lish and American actor have destroy
ed the old school of Shakespeare ac

this is not for the best; that in the
processes of the evolution of the arts
the theater has not naturally become
what it is.-Ilarper's Weekly.

When you shake the sleigh bell It~ jin

put inside a little ball of mud, just the
shape of the inside of the bell. Then
a mold is made, just the shape of the
outside of the bell. This mud ball with
the jinglet inside is placed in the mold
of the outside, and the metal is poured
In, which fills up the space between
the ball and the mold.
"When the mold is taken off, you see
a sligh bell, but it will not ring, as It
is full of dirt. The hot metal that the
bell is made of dries the dirt so that
it can be shaken out. After the dirt

The Minister's Family.
At a conference of ministers of one
of the smaller American denominations
the question of the insufficiency of
sonmc of the salaries was being argued.
One brother who was stationed at a
mission post made a strong plea for an
increase in salar'y. "To properly pro
vide my" family with the necessities,"
he said, "is a serious problem." "Io
many children have you?" asked a
sympathetic brother of the cloth. "I
have four boys, and each one has a
sister," was the prompt reply. Imme
diately the sympathetic friend took the
floor. "flow is it possible that our
brother can provide even the barest
necessiis for his eight children"- "I
did not say I had eight children; the
boys have the same sister."

By a great many people Arabia is
supposed to be the home of the horse.
From ancient Roman, Grecian and
Jewish history we readily learn that
the horse was unknown in Arabia long
after he was a common factor in the
life of southern Europe. The horse
was scarcely known to the Hebrews
prior to the days of Solomon, that
worthy and illustrious sovereign hav
ing been brought into closer contact
with the horse by his marriage to a
daughter of Pharaoh, the reigning king
of Egypt. whose gorgeous wedding out
fit was supplemented by a large num
ber of elegant horses, adapted alike to
the service of war and the chase.
The appearance of those beautiful
animals as they sped swiftly along the
streets of Jerusalem excited the envy
of a few jealous princes, but added to
Solomon's popularity with the masses.
After his marriage with the Egyptian
princess Solomon began buying horses
from his father-in-law, and so rapidly
did he multiply them by purchase and
breeding that those kept for his own
use required, as it is written, "4,000
stables and 40,000 stalls."

There is no mention of crowns before
the eighth century after Christ. The
crown really did not become the head
covering of kings until the times of the
Christian rulers after the might and
power of pagan Rome were broken.
Before those days the crowning was
done with a helmet. This change in the
method of crowning the rulers is typ
ical of the changes that occurred in
the spirit that animated nations and
races in the selection of their kings.
The first kings and chiefs, after the
world had emerged from the patri
archal forms of government, were se
lected almost altogether for their
prominence as leaders in war. Thus,
gradually, -the chief of the army be
came the chief of the nation. Almost
all the ancient kings were military
despots. Then, with the prevalence of
Christianity and the overthrow of the
old governments, came the new rulers
who claimed to rule by divine right.
They, too, were almost all military
despots, especially in the beginning,
but the world had progressed far
enough to demand more proof of au
thority to rule than mere brute power.
Travels of a Bullseye.
A German scientist says that if a
marksman at noon on a cloudless,
windless day sets his rifle so that it
will cover the bullseye of a target the
gun will in the same position the next
day, if it also happens. to be cloudless
and windless, shoot "high left." "The
bullseye is apparently attracted by the
position of the sun or of any other lu
minous point." says the scientist, "and
apparently during the day follows the
course of the sun in a semicircular line
on the target."
This seemingly changed. position of
an object under the changing influence
of light cannot, he thinks, be produced
by refraction nor by the changing
temperature of the air nor by chang
ing barometric pressure. The change
of position is instantly responsive to
the sun breaking through a cloud. It
cannot be akin to mirage, because the
shooter would then have to lower his
gun at noon instead of elevating it as
he now does.
One of the Only "Kels" Plays.
An ancient baseball fan tells this
story to illustrate the quickness and
trickiness of Mike Kelly, the one time
king of the green diamond:
"A game between Boston and Wash
ington was played at 3eantown. Char
lie Bennett was catching, and Mike
Kelly was sitting on the bench when a
foul which Bennett could not possibly
get goes up in the air toward the
bench, and Kelly, being captain, yells
to the umpire that he will put Bennett
out of the game, and at the same time
he puts on a mitt with lightning speed
and catches the ball. He then tries to
make the umpire allow the catch, but
the umpire, after wrangling a long
time with Kelly, decides the ball was
in play and Bennett could not be re
moved from the game until the ball
had been caught by a player in the
game, so he ordered the batsman to
hit over. This -was quick thought of
Kelly, even if It did not work."
