His lec ture and its sequel are printed in the New York Sun. "Letus con eider," -went on the worthy sage, "the process expressed in the good olcbhomely phrase, 'making up one's mind.' I am on the threshold of ian important decision. What I de termine to do may have a grave hearing on my future. First I pon der over the matter carefully. I look at it in every aspect examin ing it searchingly in all lights, from all angles. By the indefinable proc esses of reasoning I arrive at a cer tain conclusion. But that is not all. "As a man of discretion it he hooves me to secure counsel. I listen carefully to judgments, not ing zealously each person's individ ual bias;' Then I assort and cata logue these outside opinions. "I next step aside psychically and view the array. Having, as I mod estly beg to .claim, a plastic, al though notably individual, mind, I am able, thus to project myself into the personalities., of others and view my -own impressions and my ownstatus a&theymight view them. This, poling -gentlemen, is an espe cially valuable exercise. I urge you to cultivate tfie f acuity. a- iFihauy I itTe one last sweeping survey to the whole subject. Then I decide. My mind is made up ir revocably. No stress, no threats could alter that decision; no cajol ery, no urging, could modify it, for,, next to moderation and open mindedness, there is nothing so valuable as firmness. "This illustration has been taken from actuality. I have come to an unalterable decision." The students departed much im pressed. The professor, in a glow of self satisfaction, sought his home. Mrs. Terwilliger met him at the door. v "Zachariahf she said, "have you made up your mind on that matter?" "Yes, my dear; I have thought it over and decided to .say no." "Really!" There was a touch of irony in the,good lady's tone. "Well, I've thought it over, too, and Fve decided you must accept. It would he nonsense to" Mrs. Tcrwuli ger's aspect was ominous.

He Is the Real Ruler of the Great Brit- ish Empire. - The real ruler of -the British em pire is not the titular sovereign nor the hereditary nobility. It is the leader of the political majority, vo derives his power solely from the di rect Tote of the people. The prime minister of England is subordinate neither to the king nor the house of: '-peers.' Every man who shares with him in, the. work of the gov -ernmentis his subordinate. ' . Following a general election the sovereign gends for a member of the! majority party arid instructnini-fo! Jojinva- government. This is one of hos.e iicticris of the constitutional, authority of the sovereign to which ffle English people fcling as to the heritage of tradition. The sum mons is delivered, hut it is merely a form. The party leader is such not by-the grace of' 'the . sovereign, hut by the choice of 'the' majority; not by election, but because he has the qualities,of leadership. The leader, having received the sovereign's instructions to form a government, becomes by that man date the autocrat of the empire. His power is absolute. Like the president, he may appoint whomso ever he pleases a member of his cab inet, but, unlike the president, he is not influenced by geographical considerations, nor does he have ir submit his nominations to the pen ate. In both countries the mem bers of the cabinet hold office at tl.f will of the appointing power, but the tenure of office is even more precarious in England than it is in the United States. Here a minister may differ from the president on a matter of policy and not feel it in cumbent upon him to resign. In England there can be no differeneop. Either a minister agrees with his chief or he resigns. In England the cabinet is an ex tra legal creation. Nominally it i3 one of the committees of the privy council, whose functions are to ad Tise the sovereign, but this is sim ply a survival of niediaevalism. The cabinet is under the sole control of the premier, unhampered by royal or other interference. But anoth er Furvival no member of the cab inet may make public any matter discussed b- the cabinet without the express sanction of the sovereign, and when the premier issues a sum mons to a cabinet council, whicljj meets at irregular intervals, accord ing to the exigency of public busi ness, the minister is "requested to attend a meeting of his majesty's j servants."

The "kang," the Korean house furnace, renders -the atmosphere of the inns where travelers take their rest almost insufferable. It is pic tured as a primitive though ef fective means of heating the houses throughout the kingdom. A small fire of brushwood is lighted in the small furnace at one side of the house, thence numerous flues under the mud floor conduct the smoke and hot air to an upright chimney or hole in the wall at the opposit" end or side, and a little fire suffices to thoroughly heat a large house.
