Babushka Littie Grandmother
In the spring of 1906 I travel
edsdeep into the interior of one
of the most central provinces of
Russia writes Kellogg Durland
I in the Womans Home Compan
ion In a remote village many
leagues from the nearest railroad
I learned of a woman who in
many respects is one of the most
remarkable personalties in Rus
sia in a generation Her name
is the key to thousands of hearts
Her life has been the inspiration
of millions No personman or
woman has been more constant 1
ly sought by the police than she I
For years a price of many thous I
and rubies was on her head Yet
she is one pf the sweetest
the purest the most loving and i
most lovable souls it has ever
been my privilege to meet j
I For thirty years this woman i
has been a leader of the move i
ment for liberty in Russia Back j
in the year 1878 she was arrested j
and exiled to the mines of Kara
in central Siberia and there she j
t spent no less then twentythree f
long years
The name of this remarkable i
personality is Catherine Breshj
kovsky From nearest Russia to j
farthest Siberia she is known i
revered and loved Not only
does every one in the great em
pire of the Czar know her by her
i own name but also by the word j
of familiar endearment which j
in Russian means Little Grand j
mother Babushka Any be
loved old lady may be a babush j
ka but there is only one whom j
every Russian instantly thinks I
of when reference is make to i
Babushea It is almost like the j
I i
Little Corporal or the Widow of i
Windsor I know this because j
I have asked about Babushka in
St Petersburg and Moscow in i
south Russia in the Caucasus in I
north Russia on the Volga on
the Don and in distant Sib ria
arid never once was I called up 1 I

Look at his hands No iandsman ever

of the bands turned toward his body

The Spinning Machine of a Spider
The spinning machine is situated un
der the hinder part of the spiders
body It takes the form of a slight de
pression which a close inspection
shows to consist of six small bodies re
sembling tubes Four of these contain
an immense number of minute open
ings as many as a thousand can be
counted in each and from every one
of these openings a viscous fluid is
suet which hardens on exposure to
the atmosphere The whole 4000
threads are united into one line which
is sometimes so fine that 4000000
twisted together would not have a
combined diameter greater than that
of an ordinary hair from the human
head It is impossible to conceive the
excessive slenderness of one of the
4000 threads which compose such a
line The bare statement that each
one has a thickness only one sixteen
thousand millionth of that of a human
hair does not in any way convey the
impression of its wonderful fineness
The mind can no more grasp the
meaning of such figures than it can
understand the immense distance of
which astronomers talk so glibly
S Kelvin as Damocles
A characteristic always of Lord Kel
vin was his absolute faith in figures
and this ruling passion once led to his
experiment as a Damocles When he
once solved a problem in mathematics
be was willing to stake upon its cor
rectness not only his reputation but if
necessary his life Taking an im
mense heavy cannon ball be calculat
ed with the utmost accuracy the size
of the smallest wire which would bear
the weight of the load of ironS
then procured a length of wire of just
I the requisite strength and to prove tbt
truth of his figuring had the cannonball
ball suspended over his lecturing plat
form at the very spot where it would
be most likely to strike and crush him
should the wire give way and it re
main d there for weeks
The Last Ditch
A dignified origin can be given to
the expression To die In the last
ditch On the death of De Witt the
Prince of Orange was made head of
the Dutch republic Despite his youth
he displayed the ourage and tenacity
of his race Do you not see your
country is lost asked the Duke of
Buckingham who had been sent to ne
gotiate at The Hague There is a
sure way never to see it lost replied
William and that is to die In the
last ditch

Terrible New Disease
There is a new disease pella
gra which comes from eating
corn affected by mold This
mold is the deadly poison thatj
kills its victims by slow degrees
and in grest agony It tortures
the skin undermines thestrength
weakens the mind converts its
victim into a gibbering idiot and
finally brings death
Pellagra has probably existed
in the United States for many
years although this fact has not
been defini tel y establishedl
American physicians knew noth
ing of the disease andas yet
know little of it The public
health and marine hospital ser
vice has at last awakened to its
existence and is making inquiry
about it in the light of what is
known of the disease in Europe
The disease is in no way conta
gious or infectious There is
nothing about it that needs alarm
any community in which it is
found It may be cured and it
can as assuredly be prevented S
