Princes at School.
Dr. Marks tells some amusing sto ries of the early days of the school in Burma of which he was for so many years the head. Shortly after the school was opened King Thebaw said. "Will you teach some of my sons?" "Certainly," said Dr. Marks. "What ages do you like them at?" Dr. Marks replied, "From twelve to fourteen." The king said, "Bring all my sons be tween twelve and fourteen to me." Nine princes came in. Four came to school the next day, each riding on an elephant and with two gold umbrel las. Each also was escorted by forty soldiers. Afterward the whole nine came, so there were nine princes, nine elephants, eighteen gold umbrellas and 360 soldiers. The elephants stayed outside, but when the princes came Into the schoolroom all the other boys threw themselves flat down on their faces on the ground. It was forbid den for any one to stand or sit in the presence of princes. Dr. Marks found this state of things very inconvenient, and the royal etiquette at school was at his request considerably abated.— London Globe. An Old Superstition. It was a common superstition in an cient Italy that if a woman were found spinning on a highroad the crops' would be ruined for that year. In most sections of Italy a woman was forbid den by law thus to spin or even to car ry an uncovered spindle on the high way. Some Sacrifice.

Sherman & Company Yoshio Markino in McClure's tells the following anecdote of his literal mindedness: "At the grammar school I used to be lieve all that I was taught. But very often I made an awful misunderstand ing. For instance, our readers said: 'The human nature is Just like the water. If you put the water into a square vessel the water will become square, and if you put it into a round vessel it will have a round shape. Boys and girls, therefore you must choose your friends.' "No sooner than the school hour was over I ran to my neighbor who had a newly born baby. 1 told the mother, 'Don't put your baby in a hard, flat bed; her figure will become flat.'"

Post Molded by Circumstances. Postgraduate Course. An Old Testament Verse. Not the Same Meaning. One Reason. Too Uncertain. Value of Fat. The popular view of the close cca nection between fat and good nature and weight and balance is not wholly without rational foundation. Fat. Un pleasant and stodgy as it is. is one of the most valuable tissues in the hu man body, and any man who reduces his share of it below a certain reason able level not only takes the smooth edge off his temper and balance off his powers of judgment, but exposes all of his higher tissues, notably the mils cular. uervons and secreting, to dan ger of both starvation and disease. A moderate cushion of fat is one of the best buffers and bucklers against the "slings and arrows of outrageous for tune," whether in the form of. disease germs or in strains upon endurance. The man who makes himself into a lean and hungry Cassius even with the best o£ intentions is very apt to get himself into a state of both mind and body where he is more fit for treason, stratagem and spoils than for comfort, wholesomeness and a long, happy life. —Dr. Woods Hutchinson in Outing. A West Indian Fish Dish. A novelty to the jaded palate and a delightful luncheon or supper dish is made of equal quantities of potatoes and fish, halibut or cod preferred Butter well a deep baking dish and first put in a layer of breadcrumbs, then a layer of sliced onions, then a layer of the fish. Cut in fairly small pieces and entirely Jfree from skin a id bones. Senson well and repeat until the dish is nearly filled. Sprinkle earh layer with small bits of butter. Now pour over it all a pint of tomato ketchup and finish with a layer of but tered breadcrumbs. A layer of sliced tomatoes may be put in and # vvill im prove the flavor. Bake in a very slow oven for at least four hours and baste three or four times with a mixture of vinegar, flour and water, watching it carefully to prevent scorching. TMs dish has an unpronounceable and de cidedly unspellable name, but it is very good and de idedly out of the ordinary. —Philadelphia Press. The Absolute Zero. What is the absolute zero of temper ature? The zero of thermometers is purely conventional The inveulor of the centigrade simply took for zero the coldest temperature known in his day, while Fahrenheit had even less ground for his selection. Absolute zero is a point fixed by nature and may be arrived at in a variety of ways. All gases expand or contract equal amounts for every degree of heat The amount of 1-273 of their volume for each degree centigrade. If, then, a gas is cooled down contin uously it must reach a point at which further contraction is impossible. If a gas loses 1-273 of its volume at each downward degree of centigrade then in 273 degrees it would exhaust this power and becom» a solid; hence (minus) 273 C. is the absolute zero of temperature. This answers to 461 F, "CLOSED FOR REPAIRS" By M. QUAD Copyright. 1911, by Associated Lit erary Press. There was a rather curious situation in school district No. 8 in the county of Greenfield. There were six widowers living there and all of them farmers, and three of the six were the school trustees. For several years men teach ers had been employed and had given good satisfaction, but now they were *to change to the other sex. Widower Thomas, the moderator, had suggested the change, and he hadn't looked the other two in the face as he did it. He had simply said that he thought a schoolma'am would teach the scholars manners as well as geography. Mr. Williams had agreed, but had at the same time said to himself: "I understand his little game." And Mr. Burt had agreed with him, but at the same time had said to him self: "The cute old rascal! But I see through him as if he was made of glass. If anybody around here mar ries that schoolteacher it will be me!" The three other w r idowers heard of the plan, and each one said it was a good thing and each one had his whis kers trimmed and his hair dyed and made ready for the struggle. A sem inary was written to and a teacher sent on. It was for Widow T er Thomas to drive across the country in a horse and buggy to the railroad and meet her and bring her on. Widower Thomas had hopes that the schoolma'am would be about twenty two and good looking. The arriving teacher turned out to be all he had hoped for. He felt so well acquainted with her before they had driven half a mile that he began: "Now, Miss White, you are coming among strangers, and 1 want to post you about them. There's old Jim Wil liams to begin with. He's one of the trustees and a widower with four children. , "And there's Moses Burt. He's an other widower. Claims to be forty eight years old, but will never see sixty again. Looking around for a young wife and ought to be ashamed of himself. Great hand to laugh at his own jokes, but if you laugh with him he'll sure think you are in love with him and pop the question." "Then I shall not laugh." "Then there's Joab Tyler. Mebbe he's only fifty next birthday, as he claims, but he's sopping on the hair dye to beat the band. Five children for a second wife to take care of." "That's dreadful!" "Then there is Henry Stevens," con tinued the moderator. "I can't say that Henry is over forty years old, and his wife only left three children, but you can judge what sort of a man he is when I tell you that he never shed a tear at the funeral. He never even sniffled. Seemed just as uncon cerned as if he was hoeing taters. I wouldn't advise no woman to marry a man like that. "Then comes Levi Schemerhorn. He was to Chicago once, and he'll brag of it to you and try to make out that he is a hero. Don't you let on that you think he's anything great or you'll be a goner." "No, I won't," answered the girl, "but are there any more?" "Ahem! One more. Miss White. It's me. I'm a widower with a hun dred acre farm and only one child. My tater crop alone last year brought me $500. Rising of forty is my age, and I can run down a calf. Got a melodeon in the house and am willing to buy a red ingrain carpet and lace curtains for the parlor. In case I get married I shall go on a wedding trip to Niagara Falls and not mind the ex pense." "And are there no young men in the neighborhood?" asked Miss White. "Jest one, and he's a hired man who don't amount to shucks—eats with his knife and fork and says that Bos ton is in New Jersey. If I was you I wouldn't let him get the idea that you was a kindred spirit" * "No, I won't." Miss White was left at the house of the Widow Harkness, which was to be her first boarding place. Supper was not yet finished when the widowers began to gather, and in the course of half an hour the whole six were there. Their excuses were various, but the fact was apparent that they had come to size the schoolma'am up. Once there no one would go and leave the others behind to get some advantage. The clock had struck midnight when the widow turned them all out in a bunch. There wasn't exactly a fight outside the gate, but the six told each other what they thought of hair dye and old galoots. When they were gone the schoolma'am turned to the widow and asked: "Don't any of those men want you for a wife?" "Not if they can get you," was the doleful reply. Ten minutes of confidential tal£ set tled things. The school house was close by, and on its door was tacked the notice: "This place closed for repairs." At daylight next morning the widow harnessed a horse to her democrat wagon, and within, two hours Miss White was landed at the spot where the moderator had found her. When the community learned that she had gone those six old widowers looked at each other and said: "Durn your buttons, but it was your gab and your hair dye that driv ber away, and you ought to &£ ashamed of yourself."
