How His Theory of Circulation Was
Born and Demonstrated
It was while studying at Paiiua un- |
der a professor who had discovered j
j the valves in the veins that Harvey
■ discovered the circulation of the blood.
He was curious to know what these
valves were for and finding that they
all pointed in the same direction, he
| could think of no reason for their ex- j
istence unless it might be to prevent
: the blood from flowing backward.
Placing a ligature on his arm, he
found that one set of vessels. the ar
\ teries, became distended with blood on \
the side nearest to the heart, while j
the veins became distended with blood j
| on the side farthest from the heart, i
This to him meant only that the blood i
flowed from the heart through the ar
teries and back to the heart through
) the veins. It also explained the beat-
I ing of the heart and the throbbing of
! the pulses.
But the medicsl anil surgical world
received this epoch making discovery
: with scorn. Harvey published a book
on his discovery and his practice fell
olf considerably. Doc to re scoffed, and
the public looked on him as a crank, i
/; It was a quarter of a century after i
j the book appeared before the discovery
I was accepted by the learned men of
i the world. —New York World.
The Dumb Waiter
The value of the old fashioned labor
i saving device, the dumb waiter, cannot
;be exaggerated. Instead of carrying
up the many, many things that daily
I have to come from the cellar they are
; placed on the dumb waiter. No energy
is waisted and one trip will save three.
It serves the place also of the more
: modern linen chute. The linen chute
is not to be tabooed, for it has its uses
! but it is practically wasting space to
| have both it and the dumb waiter. In
'many houses the. dumb waiter stops
short at the second floor —the reason j
why has never been discovered—or ,
sometimes it starts at the first floor
instead of in the cellar, another enig
! ma. This is as impractical as it would
be to have the sidewalk end before it
reaches the house. It simply doesen't
answer the purpose for which it was
intended.—Woman's Home Compan
It is a good plan neither to borrow
nor lend where trouble is concerned.—
New York Times.
Why It Is Always Wis® to Analyze the
Earth When Digging
Material thrown up by burrowing
animals or exposed in digging or plow
ing. and, of course, railway cuttings
: or any excavations should be carefully
examined for the presence or indica
j tions of useful minerals. Fallen atones,
| especially carried down by rivers,
should be carefully inspected, and if
any stones of a promising character
such as vein rock, which are known as
j shode stones, be found, the inspection
! should be continued up the river or
i the valley. The main mav be many
miles or only a few feet away from
where the stones that belong to the
I vein now are.
j A vein rock usually is of a different
degree of hardness to the surrounding
rock. It is harder than the surround
i ing materials. In weathering the out-
I crop is marked by projecting masses of
I rocks or depressions, which may be
followed by the eye for some distance
. marking a vein.
These outcrops should be examined
i to see if they contain any useful min
eral or indications of them. If tlia
outcrop presents a spongy looking
mass, stained with dark and other
; hues of brown, it gives a favorable in
: dication. This mineral is called gos
! San and is a favorable indication of
( rich minerals lying underneath.—Chi

| The Bride Who Got Into a Chest and
Was Found Dead There
| There is a story more or less diffused
:of a young bride on her wedding day
\ playing the game of hide and seek and
concealing herself in one of those an
'cient carved chests of large size. Aft
ior she ha<i go? in the lid closed, and
she found herself unable to raise it
again, for it fastened with a spring,
i and she was shut in. Search was made
| for her in every quarter but the right
| one. and great perplexity and dismay
j were caused by her disappearance. It •
i was not till years after, wheu chance
I led to the opening of the chest, that the
I body of the young bride was discov
i ered and the mystery of her disappear
ance solved.
The story is found in so many placet
; that it may be questioned whether it is
j true of any one of them . Rogers tells
iit of a palace in Modena. The chest
I in which the poor bride was foand is
j shown at Bramshill, in Hampshire, the
residence of Sir John Cope. Another
| similar chest, with precisely the same
i story attached to it, was long shown at
Marwell Old Hall, between Winchester
and Bishop's Waltham.
The folk tale of Catskin or PeaU
d'Ane represents the girl flying with
her bridal dresses from a marriagd
j that is repugnant to her, and, as this
tale is found all over Europe, it may
| have metamorphosed itself into that of
| the bride who got into a chest and died
| there. —Cornhill Magazine.
j The origin of Buddhism which ranks
j in numbers among the great religions
■ of the world, is wrapped iu much un
certainty, and the personality of its
founder' is more or lese obscure. It is
generally believed that Buddha was a
prince of a petty Indian nation and
that he wus born about the beginning
of the fifth century before Christ. He
was named Siddhartha and was also
known as Sakya, his family name.
The title Buddha, which was given
him, means "the enlightened." He
spent many yeare in study and soli
tary meditation and finally evolved the
philosophy which he preached for over
forty years in northern India. He was
about eighty when he died.—Youth's
Tuning Forks
The tuning fork was the invention
of John Stone, royal trumpeter, in
1811. Though the pitch of forks varies
slightly with changes of the tempera
ture or by ruet, they are the most ac
curate means of determining pitch.
Tuing forks are capable of beinig made
of any pitch within certain limits, but
those commonly used are the notes A
and C, giving the sounds represented
by the second and third spaces in the
treble stave.
His Walking War Record
• The Dundee Courier has this laconic
i war note:
"Soldiers can be as laconic as sail
ors. The late Sir George Groves used
to tell of an old soldier who went
about begging, bearing a placard: 'Ae
tious, 7; wounds, 9; children, 8; to
tal, 24.' "
Fixing the Break
"They were both broken up by
their separation."
"But I understand they've effected
