When the building committee applied to him for a site for the new library he was ready to sell them a desirable lot. but not at their price. "I couldn't feel to let It go under $000," he said, with the mild obstinacy that characterized all bis dealings with his fellow men. "It wouldn't be debt." "You otiglit to be willing to contrib ute something for such an object." said the chairman of the committee. "If It's worth six hundred, why not let us have It for Ave hundred and call It you've given the other hundred?' "M'm no. I couldn't do that." said Mr. Tond. stroking his chin, "but I tell you what I will do.

Tha Mullahs of India. A mullah, or. as It is more properly written, mollah, Is a title given In In dia and throughout the east generally to a religious leader of any description. Thus the sultan of Turkey Is a mol lah, because he Is the supreme head of the moslem world. And there are hun dreds of others.

"It Isn't cramp," said a life guard, "that carries off so 'many good swim mers. After all, what is a leg or arm cramp? Couldn't a good swimmer easily turn- on his back and float till the attack departed? No, cramp won't account for the strange seizures that In a twinkling turn a very fish of a swluimer into a helpless, speechless, drowning paralytic. What accounts for this business Is water inhaling A swimmer inhales spray through the nostrils, It passes through the pharynx, behind the epiglottis or windpipe guard nd so down Into the windpipe. The result Is nearly certain death. Swal lowing water does you no harm, but breathing It may kill you. How to avoid accidentally breathing It, though, that Is a question nobody seems nble to answer."

In "Idlehurst" mention is made of sparrow shot, five or sis to the dose, to be taken twice a day, as a remedy for "brown klters," which Is believed by the English farm laborers to be caused by the "lights" (their term for lungs) rising up the windpipe. The shot is supposed to weight them down In their rightful place. Sussex. England, is the scene of "Idlehurst."

"Well, after his sermon had proceed ed for ten or twelve minutes, now au dible enough, now drowned under great waves of coughs, ho took a resolution. ,md when the next outbreak was at its height he ceased preaching. "At once the coughing ceased. There was a profound silence. The minister smiled. " 'My friends,' said be. 'it seems that when I stop you stop. "From that day lu that church thej HMighed no more."
