An ingenious "Fire Box."
A very simple but nevertheless ef
fective method of making fire is used
in the Arfak mountains, in Dutch
North New Guinea. The natives cut
a section of bamboo, usually about
nine Inches long by two inches in di
ameter. and into this are put a supply of
tinder and a small fragment of any
thing hard. preferably a piece of china
if the natives can get hold of It. The
tinder is covered from the wet by a
piece of bark. and the "fire box" is then
ready for use whenever It Is wanted.
To get a light the native merely takes
the piece of china and a lump of tin
der between his thumb and first tin-.
ger; then, holding the bamboo in his
left hand, he strikes its surface sharp
ly with the china, causing a spark,
which soon ignites the tinder. Even
the white man soon acquires the knack
of doing this, and the process is mucil'
more effective and infinitely less labori
ous than the usual method of produc
ing fire by friction.-Wide World Mag

Keats wrote his famous "Ode to Au

deed, s11 his five great odes, among the
greatest in any language, before he at
tained legal manhood. He died at
twenty-five, so that all .he great mas
terpieces which came from his pen
may be regarded as the production of
a boy. Robert Burns wrote that scath
lag satire, "Holy Willie's Prayer"
when he had barely passed his youth.
and indeed, the whole of the poems in
the famous Kilmarnock edition, a copy
of which sold some little'time since
for ?550, were written before he was
twenty-five. But even the precocity of
Burns was put In the shade by that of
Chatterton, who committed suicide in
a fit of despair in a Louldon garret
when he was seventeen. He wrote the

-Why-Metats Rust.
Gold does not tarnish like ot
U netal because it is not acted upon by
oxygen or water. It Is t.e moisture In
the atmosphere which causes other
metals to tarnish. owing to their oxi
dation. Water contins a large pro
portion of oxygen. and it is the oxygen,
t of course. In the moist air combining
with the surface of' the metals that
covers them with tarnish. Platinum.
t like .gold. resists the influence of oxy
gen and moisture and when pure nel
ther rusts nor tarnishes. Aluminium
also does not rust, neither hot nor cold
water having any action upon it. The
sulphureted, hydrogen of the atmos
phere, which so readily tarnishes sil
ver, has no effect upon aluminium.
which under ordinary circumstances
e preserves its appearance as perfectly
- as gold does. Silver tarnishes on ex
r posure to the air, the agent: producing
this effect being the suiginhr. Iron is
the metal which tarnishes and rusts
most easily, its oxidization proceiling.
until the metal Is completely eaten or
burnt away with the rust.

Mrs. Pepys' Temper.
Being at supper my wife did say
something that caused me to olpos
her in. She used the word devil. which
vexed me, and, among other things.I
said I would not have her to use that
word, upon which she took, me up most
scornfully, whlch, before Ashwell and
the rest of the world. I know not now
adays how to check, as I would here
tofore, for less than that would have
made me strike her. So that I fear
without great discretion I shall go near
to lose. too, my command over her. and
nothing do it more than giving her this
occasion of dancing and other pleas
ores, whereby her mind 1s taken up
from her business and t$nds other
sweets besides pleasing of me. and so
makes her that she begins not at all
to take pleasure in me or study to
please me as ,heretofore. - Diary of
