When shoes of one kind or another be-gani to be worn ly lorses has always been disputed b k-:n-ned gentlemen.

These would no doubt be considered by a farrier to indicate that reference is made to a hoof gar nished with some sort of metal.

Xenoghlon no doubt as a writer of pl:iz prose nud or vorks relating to horsy ntters would deserve the most serious and respectful attention, but memory fails to recall any remarks of his about what we should regard as properly called shoeing. Certain protections for the horse's hoof may be mentioned in the works of Columella and Vegetius, and in the time of Constantine the Great there is said to have been known a footgear for horses which was fastened to the pastern. However, the earliest known specimen of an iron horseshoe fasten ed with nails is said to have been that which was discovered in the tomb of the frauk King Chiideric. who died in 4SI and wl:o-e tomb was opened in 1653. CURIOUS DESIGNS. Cdd Results May Be Produced by Dropping Oil on Water. A curious experiment may be made, the result of which will produce a strange natural design, and the attempt may be carried on with almost endless variety in the result. Tile only things needed are a deep dish of water and some oil. Any kind of oil will do, but better results are obtained with a vari etv. Fill a deep dish with pure water and let it stand until the water is perfectly still, then let fall into it a drop of pure sperm oil. The drop will spread out, forming a film circular in shape, but very ragged at the edges. If you watch the film you will soon perceive that the center begins to break up, forming ovals and circles, and the combinations of these form endless designs which keep on forming and breaking up from one to another for fully half -an hour, making a veritable kaleidoscope. You will see some designs that you may wish to preserve, and if that be so take a piece of glazed paper and place it gently over the surface of the water when the film is in the desired design. The oil will stick to the paper, and when you remove it from the wa ter, as gently as you placed it there, run an inked roller over it or place the design on an inked plate. The ink will cover the paper except where the oil has touched it, and when your process is finished four design of oil will stand out white mgainst a black backgr-ound. This same experimenit made with castor oil will give a similar result. ex cept that tile designs will be smaller, and every kind of oil will give a differ eut design. Indeed, no two drops of the same oil will produce the same de sign, so that you may preserve an end less variety in your colleetiotr. The New Pure Food and Drug Law.

The peculiar properties of an elCetric currint often lead one to fancy that it may perchance be endowed with the spirit of intelligence, so mlys1teriou are its inner worid" A most erioes use of e'"tricity is the adoption of lifting maguets in ma c'hie shop and mill practice. An cle' tro magnet in its simplest form c:)n sists of a piece uf soft iron wound with a larre number of' turns of insulflted copjer wire. WIhen an clectric current passes tirough the windings of wire the electric forc!e are converted int:% maguetic forces and the >cil of wire and core of soft iron assume all the characteristics of a common steel mag net. The operation of lifting Iim:mets is quite simnple. Tie ma;:net is attached to the crane bo1ok. :idi the ends of the wire forming the coil are connected directly with the dynamo. The crane is then swung so that the magnet is Suspende(d irectly over the metal to be reioved. The magnet is then low ered tmtil it come-s in contact with the object. the current is turned on. the hoist is raised and the mass of metal to be moved clings to the magnet. When the load reaches the desired point it may be dropped without first lowering the magnet or it may be low ered. the current shut off and the ma terial deposited gently. The crane op erator needs no help to load or un load, and the work can be done in half the time with a saving of from three to four men.-New York H1erald. THE BLOUSE. Its Name Came Originally From Pe , lusium, In Egyt. The environs of Pelusium. :i lower Egypt, in ages past stood foremost among sunny lands where the culture of Indigo and the manufacture of fab rics d:ed with it were the principal in dustries. in the middle ages, when the Crusaders landed on the coast of Egypt and entered Pelsium. where Port 8aid is now situated, they pur chased quantities of the blue material, which they east over their panoply of war. Afterward the same material was. made in France and became the fabric of which the working garment of the male peasant was made and is to this day. The nanie of the locality was given the fabric, and this was retained by the Fgench production, but contracted. to Pelouse, which later on was changed to blouse (pronounced bluze). The smock worn by English male peasants is a sinilar garment and, though it is not wriLen in history that the blouse crossed the channel soon after its entry into France. it would seem probable from the fact that in other times the smock was now and then called a "blowse. This, fair ladies, is the origin of the garment of our warmest affection, to which we have loyally clung for years in spite of many ruthless detractors and will continue to do so notwith standing the fact that, whether called "bluze" or "biowse," it is not of aristo cratic lineage. Landor and wordsworth. Walter Savage Landor was an in temperate pecrson in words and hated Wordsworth. Were there ever 'more contemptuous words than these of Lan dor in reference to Wordsworth? "Pas tiness and flatness are the qualities of a pancake and thus far he attained his end. Let him place the accessories on the table lest what is insipid mid cI'am my grow into duller accretion an~d moister viscidity the more I masticate it." In Landor's letter to Rtalph Waldo Emerson lie writes: "We must now descend to Wordsworth. He often gave an opinion on authors which he never had read, Plato for instance. He speaks contemptuously of the Scotch I praised a line of Scott's on the dog of a traveler lost in the snow (if I remem er) on Skiddatw. Ie said it was the only good one in the poem and began instantly to i'ecite a whole poem of his own on the same subject."

It is quite possible to prove that the earth revolves on its axis by a simple experiment and without having re course to mathematics. Take a good sized bwl, liii it nearly full of wa ter and place it upon the floor of a room which is not exposed to shaking or jarring from the street. Sprinkle over the surface of the wa ter a coating of lycopodium powder, a white substance which is sometimes used for the toilet and can be bought at almost any drug store. Then upon the surface of this coating of powder make with powdered charcoal a straight black line, say, an inch or two inches in length and lying north and south. Having made this little black mark with the charcoal powder on the sur face of the contents of the bowl, lay down upon the floor a stick or some other straight object, se that it shall be exactly parallel with the mark. If the line happens to be parallel with a crack in the floor or with any sta tionary object in the room this will serve as well. Leave the bowl undisturbed for a few hours and then notice the position of the black mark with reference to the object that it was parallel with. It will be found to have shifted its di rection and to have moved from east to west-that is to say, in' a direction opposite, to that of the movement of the earth on its axis. The earth in simply revolving has carried the water and everything else in the bowl around with it, but the powder on the surface has been left behind a little. The line will always be found to have moved from east to west, which is good proof that every thing else has moved the other way. WHY CYPRESS WOOD SINKS. Washington Scientists Made a 'most Singular Discovery. Southern lumbermen take great de light in a story of certain scientific gen tlemen who were sent by the govern ment at Washington to study the growth and uses of the bald cypress at a time when cypress lumber was comparatively new to the market. They went direct to a large camp, presented credentialf to the superintendent and watched with minute care the processes of cutting the timber and floating it down stream. Cypress is a light, spongy wood that grows in swamps and absorbs water readily. The scientific gentlemen re quested the superintendent to throw some logs into the river separate from the main rafts and followed their prog ress down stream in a boat After floating south for some distance the logs with one accord sank. Much sur prised. the scientific gentlemen return ed and followed another consignment The phenomenon was repeated; at a certain distance from the camp all the logs sank. The gentlemen from Washington, be ing very scientific, did not think to question the unlettered superintendent about the power of cypress to become waterlogged, but after numerous ob servations and much comparing of notes reported to their department the startling discovery that cypress floated north of a certain parallel of latitude andl south of it invariably sank. Of the cause they were not yet certain, but hazarded the suggestion that it might lie in the rotary motion of the, earth, increasing in speed as the logs ap proached the equator until it was pow erful enough to draw them under. Philadelphia North American. Fruit Tree Wood. 31any farmers who occasionally or der the destruction of fruit trees on account of advanced age or unfruitful ness are quite unaware of the value attached to much of the wood thus sacrificed. Cherry wood is largely used in furniture and wheni polished reveals a beautiful color and provides a passa ble imitation of mahogany. Apple tree wood is remarkably well adapted to turner's work and is in demand for making cogwheels on account of its great strength and durability. The cogs of wooden mill wheels are often made of apple wood. It is also exten sively used for fruit presses, where it proves very durable. The value of walnut wood in fine cabinet 'work is well known, and good prices are' ob tained for this beautiful and popular wood.-London Times. The Beard In Tunis. In Tunis when a reigning prince inds it necessary to go outside his im mediate family to choose his successor he followvs an odd custom. There the wearing of hair on the face is the ex clusive privilege of sovereignty. When the prince selects a successor he sends the court barber to the fortunate indi vidual to notify him that he may wear a beard. This intimation is equivalent to a formal announcement that he has been selected as the heir presumptive. Ambition. "No, Tommy," said his mother; "you can't have any more cake. You've had enough." '-What a fine little fellow he is!" re marked the guest.

The first mention of petroleum ir America was made by F-ather De la Roche d'Allien, a F-ranciscan, in 1029. It may be a surprise to many people tc know that bo~th the product itself and the names petrol and petroleumn were familiar at least as far back as the middle of the fourteenth century. In the Sloane manuscript (fifteenth century mention is made both of rock oil and of the correct derivation of the name which is mediaeval Latin and of course has nothing to do with Peter "Petroleum, oleum est factum de petra G(allice), petroille." ("Petroleum is at ol made from rock-in French, Pe troile.") The property of drawing fire had struck tihe imagination lions before the work quoted in "-Nature' was published. In 150G Lodge used 1 in a metaphor: "As. the clay petro draweth fire. so the looks do gathe: afection." The word petrol (or petreol: disappeared from English and did noi return until tihe days of the motor en' industry, when it was reintroduce< from the French in the sense of reftes petrolem. Bernhardt and Dumas. Sarah Bernhardt had just been elect. ed a life member of the Comedie Fran. caise. When she found that she had a pap-r to sign she became nervous and went to see the younger Dumas to tell him that she shrank from the binding terms of the engagement. Du ias' advice was uuhesitating. "'My dear child, don't sign; your hair is'too curly. People with hair like that" and he passed his fingers through his own crisp waves-"ought never to sign contracts for life. The temperament is too intractable." Sarah Bernhardt, however, signed, and. meeting Dumas again next day, confessed she had done so. "That's aU right," remarked Dumas cheerfully. "I have won 500 francs ($100). I bet Mime. Dumas that amount after you left yesterday that you would at once go and sign the agreement. Well, I shall buy you something with the money." The next day Mme. Bernhardt re ceived a magnificent wig of fair hair, absolutely flat. lank and straight With it came the following sentence on a slip of paper: "Now that you are really one of the house wear this. You will need it." Elixir of Youth. In former times elder flowers were treasured not only by lovers of hedge row beauty but by those who desired to preserve their own beauty and youth. According to the seventeenth century prescription the elder flowers were to be gathered on midsummer day, powdered and put into borage water, which was to be drunk daily for a month, the first thing in the morning and the last thing at night. This was a much prized elixir of youth. By com mon consent there -has always been something supernatural about the elder tree. In Denmark it Is protected by the elder mother, without whose leave it is dangerous to pluck the flower. In Germany the hat should be taken off to it And in -England It has been variously considered the tree of the cross and the tree upon which Judas hanged himself, to be treated with reverence or fear accordingly.-London Chronicle. Written on a Slate. General Lew Wallace wrote the first rough draft of "Ben-Hur" on a slate, giving as his reason that erasures could more readily be made. After satisfy ing himself with a sentence written in this way he would, with a soft pencil, transfer the writing to paper, and final ly, when everything pleased him, he copied the entire manuscript In ink with the precision of an engrossing clerk. It is declared by those who were personally acquainted . w' General Wallace that "Ben-Hur" Is written and rewritten at least thirty times, and that when the final copy was sent to the publishers there was neither a cor rection nor an erasure throughout the manuscript Thie printer set up the copy exactly as it was written, and the author himself never corrected a proof before the book was sent to press.

A colony of wasps made a ucsrt in the dark room of a studio last summer. At frst the p)arty who used the room did not relish their company, but for cer tain reasons he did not molest them. He paid no attention to the little buz zers, and they came and went at their own sweet will. After a time he began to study them and soon came- to the conclusion that they were gradually becoming acquainted with him, his ways and his dark room. One day 'a stranger was seated on the window sill. The first wasp entering the room paid no attention to him, but made for the old crack in the wall. Then out came a big fat fellow who darted through the open window like a bullet Within ive minutes half a dozen wasps came 'with a rush at the stranger and two of them located him.
