The head barber called one of his barbers over to him and said: “You’d better hone that razor before you use it again.” “How’d you know liis razor needed honing?” he was asked. t “I could tell by the sound of it as he drew it over the man’s face. I can stand here working and tell how every razor in this shop is working by the sound as the barbers shave their cus tomers.” The Guachos of South America have very acute powers of hearing. They count the units when the galloping of horses or cattle is heard a long time before they can be seen, and by their count the Guachos can tell just how many cattle or horses there are in the herd, or if it is a party of mounted men, liow many are mounted and whether they are driving horses or cattle before them. The Guachos can also tell by the thunder of hoofs whether a stampede is caused by In dians or threatening weather. The majority of locomotive engineers can tell when a storm is approaching by the sound of their engine. There are 2,500 telegraph wires all clattering at once in an office on Con gress street, yet each operator sits at his own instrument, and reads what it says unmindful of the confusion all around him. To the uninitiated it sounds more like a machine shop; but the trained ear of the telegrapher reads it as easily as the musician reads his notes. A freight trainman riding on top can tell by the sound when there’s a flat wheel in bis train, and when he does hear it lie “goes over the top” after it, in order to set the car out at the first siding to prevent ruining the wheels. Some railroads were in the habit of paying the brakemen a premium of 25 cents for every flat wheel they found. ALIVE TO HIS SHORTCOMINGS Tclstoy a Harsh Critic of Even Petty Failings, as Has Been Revealed in His Diary. % - Count Leo Tolstoy in his youth laid down a large number of rules for his own guidance, says Every Week. The first one was this: “Fulfill everything which you have set yourself.” And the second was: “Regard feminine so ciety as an inevitable evil of social life, and, in so far as you can, avoid it.” His failure to heed liis own warnings filled the pages of liis diary with'a gloomy record of shortcomings: “March Bth. Yesterday it was late I <"■ r and my eyes, but eventual ly I got the better of myself. Then I wrote (hurriedly and without reflec tion) a letter to Nikolinka, and also one, in the stupid form which I have now adopted, to the office (self-delus ion). My gymnastics I did carelessly, and with too little balancing of my'Self against my strength. This failing I shall term in general presumption. At gymnastics I showed off (boastfulness). Also I tried to impart to Kobylin my candid opinion of myself (petty van ity) ; I went to Volkonsky’s without first finishing what I had to do (lack of continuity) ; I gorged myself upon sweets; sat up too late; and I told several falsehoods.” Harmful Loss of Temper. Although unbridled rage is helpful in fight among the lower animals, need less to say it is the reverse of service able in the deliberate fighting of man against man, as in boxing and fencing, for here anger interferes with those cautious methods of attack de fense which are essential to success. To lose one’s temper in fighting of this kind may be to lose the fight. With this reservation it is curious to note the close kinship between the com batant instinct of man and of the low r er animals. The untamed man, when enraged, assumes in very truth the as pect of the tiger; lie puts himself in a threatening attitude, frowns, glares, rolls his eyes, grinds his teeth, snarls, growls, even roars—thus instinctively seeking to strike terror into his op ponent. Best-Known Hunting Dogs. Two distinct breeds of hunting dogs in ancient times were the greyhound and the bloodhound, and their origin is lost in the misty ages of the long ago. Tablets unearthed at Nineveh show ,by pictures that both dogs were common in that ancient day. The bloodhound was first selected on ac count of his good nose in scenting the trail of game. He is a pendulous eared, or drop-eafed dog. Finally he became the limmer of olden days, that is, the bloodhound led in leash or lino to track the quarry to its lair or harbor. He was used only to locate the game and was never off the lead, while the greyhound’s mission was to race at the game and pin it by the nose. High Ideals Marked Indians. The law of hospitality was general among the savage tribes of this conti nent. It was rare, or indeed unknown, that an enemy who had accepted hos pitality ever violated that rule which made his host as sacred as himself had been. Among our most savage tribes the liar always was a man despised. The man who fought in the open was the man respected. The forked tongue ranked a man where such a man be longed and always will belong with the snake that crawled on its belly. The Indian sign for that was a sign j of contempt and detestation. Meat Must Be Sold Fresh meat is perishable. It must be sold within about two weeks for whatever it will bring. A certain amount of beef is frozen for foreign shipment, but domestic markets demand fresh, . chilled, unfrozen beef. Swift & Company can not increase prices by withholding meat, be cause it will not keep fresh and salable for more than a few days after it reaches the market. • Swift & Company cannot tell at the time of purchasing cattle, what price fresh meat will bring v/hen put on sale. If between purchase and sale, market con ditions change, the price of meat must also change. The Food Administration limits our profit to 9 per cent on capital invested in the meat departments. This is about 2 cents per dollar of sales. No profit is guaranteed, and the risk of loss is not eliminated. Asa matter of fact, meat is often sold at a loss because of the need of selling it before it spoils. Swift & Company, U.S. A.
