Sayings qI Confucius,
Answering an eminent critic Ain
Frederick H. Seymour, tlie author
of "Ye Wisdom of Confucius, ,
says: .
"Yon will, without doubt, be in
terested to know that my littie
book contains the greater part of
the sayings of Confucius himself,
for I have omitted only a little
matter concerning ancestor wor
ship, which, though cnrious, I re
garded as uninteresting.
"Like those of Christ, the actual
utterances of Confucius himself
are very few, the great mass of
Confucian literature being made
up ot the words of his disciples
and the commentaries thereon b' a
host of scholars,: doyyin through the
succeeding centuries, making au
immense literature. Confucianism,
occupying the place of religion to
over four hundred million people,
seems to be more of a code of ethics
iu which things uuknown or not
understood are regarded in a de
cidedly agnostic manner, aud Con
fucius and his disciples seem to
have resisted the temptation, to
which the Mohammedan aud Chris
tian prophets alike have yielded to
describe the attributes of God and
to localize the future rewards and
punishments, as represented by
heaven aud hell.
"Certainly the teachings of Con
fucius are nobly philosophical aud
altruistic iu the highest degree,
and will readily compare with the
best thought, of modern times in
these directions."
"For six years I was a victim of dys
pepsia in Its worst lorm. I could ';at notbinp
but milk toast, and at times my stctuach would
not retain and digest even that Last March I
began taking CASCARETS and since then I
have steadUy improved, until I am as well as I
ever was in my life."

What's a sailor's log, anyway?
We know what it is on ordinary
vessels that sail the seas, but it
begins to be tolerably apparent
that the popular conception of this
subject will not suit the logs that
are supposed to be kept on the
vessels belonging to the United
States navy. The testimony in the
Schley investigation is bringing
out the astouishiug information
that the official records of the
movements of several of the war
ships that took part in the battle
of Santiago have been garbled by
iuterliueatiohs aud erasures, made
mouths after the battle, and are
tissues of wilful miscrepresenta
tiou, made to hield the reputa
tions of naval officers apparently.

Tlie clock at the Greenwich Ob
servatory is the most important
oue in Europe, for it furnishes
correct time all over that part of
the globe. It is, therefore, looked
after and regulated with the great
est care and is uever allowed to
get more than' one-tenth of a sec
ond fast or slow. Ot course it is
impossible to. correct so small an
error by moving the hands, but au
electro-magnet serves the purpose
admirably. The magnet is near the
pendulum, which it attracts the
least bit wheu the electrical current
is turned on. The current is so
limed that it delays the pendulum
if the clock is fast, or quickens
it if the clock is slow. In this way
a few thousand swings of the
pendulum will correct the error of
a tenth of a second.
