"The White Cockade" Played Before Americans in 1775. It is the old nmslci after all,. that puts the life into inarcliinK feet, for it carries the traditions or niari-liiiiK in ils melodies. One of the oldest of the tunes was "The White Cockade." This is a historical melody to Amer icans, though many Americans way not be aware of the fact. It va3 the tune to which the farmers who fired the shot heard round the world marched when they determined to force the passage of the bridge at Concord. Possibly it was the only tune which the drummer und filer of Capt. Isaac Davis' company knew, hut the fact that it was played is histo rical. The popularity of the tune is proof that a melody made for one par ty is recognized as good by all if it." ha.s the quality of being singable. "The White Cockade" was originally a Ja cobite tune, hut it made a good march for the descendants of the Kngllah 1'iiritniis, April 1!, 1773, when Capt: Davis made his musicians strike up. As they were the first American force t hat ever advanced to battle as Amer icans, "The White Cockade" is the old est melody of the American army. Uoatoa Transcript. SIMPLE TEST FOR EGGS.

Referring to the Incredulity nnd bitter attacks which Henry iU. Stan ley nnd other explorers had to meet, j A. J. Mounteney-JophBo writes in Scrihner's Magazine: "I remember one evening in Africa when we were talking together over the camp fire, his telling me, laughingly, about a certain prominent personage who was well known for his pomposity and self importance. He said: 'When I re turned from finding Livingstone Mr. X. distrusted me and only offered me one linger of his hand to shake. After my .,,. ,., mv RPP,,nd exnedition. when I sailed down tho Kongo, he cave me two fingers. When I had fonn,k,(I tho Kongo Free State for the king of the Ilelgians and returned to l T.'ni'iniKl I cot three fingers; but it chair geographers' who stay at home. Livingstone suffered from '.his same attitude of incredulity and returned to the interior of Africa, whore he met his death, because ho could rot bear to face tho unbelievers in Umdon un til he had solved tho mystery of the great Lualaba river." FAKE TOOTH WAS VALUABLE. Enabled Missionary to Gain Influence Over Savage Tribe. A well-known Church of Englnnd missionary among the aborigines of Queensland. Australia, gained great Infiucuco over a certain tribe In a very peculiar manner. This tribe had the queer rustom of having the front tooth of tiie upper Jaw knocked out. The missionary, hy accident, li.nl lost this same tooth nnd replaced it by a false one. When he got talking with the aborigines, he would pull It out, point to tho hollow place, and say, "Me, brother, belong to you!" In this way he gained the complete confidence of the tribe, convertd every member of II to Christianity, and Introduced as much f'vl"-tloo I as they were capable of ahhiuiilatlLg. . 1 ' 1 1 An Appropriate Time.
