IN OCEAN'S GREATE8T DEPTHS.
ms so: FEB AND KEPT OPEN Pressure of Water That Would De stroy a Battleship. More than half the surface of the globe Is hidden under water two miles deep; 7,000,000 square miles lie at a depth of 18,000 feat or more. Many places have been found five miles and more in depth. The greatest depth yet sounded Is 31,200 feet, near the Is land of Guam. If Mount Everest, the world's highest mountain, were pluck ed from Its seat and dropped Into this spot the waves would still roll 2,000 feet above its crest. Into this terrific abyss the waters press down with a force of more than 10,000 pounds to the square Inch. The staunchest ship ever built would be crippled under this awful pressure like an eggshell under a steam roller. A pine beam, 15 feet long, which held open the mouth of a trawl used in making a cast at a depth of more than 18,000 feet, was crushed flat as if it had been passed between roll ers. The body of the man who should attempt to venture to such depths would be compressed until the flesh was forced Into the Interstices of the bone and his trunk was no larger than a rolling pin. Still, the body would reach the bottom, for anything that will sink in a tub of water will sink to the uttermost depths of the ocean. Eugene Wllloughby in The Oceari. THE TALE OF A FISH. As Related to His Friends by the Veracious Jenkins. They had been discussing fish and fishing, when Jenkins suddenly added: "Did I ever tell you about Pitti Sing, my pet Japanese fan-tailed goldfish? Bought her from Jake Hope for $45, and she is no longer than your finger. But about her intelligence. Of course, she comes when called and eats out of your hand and all that childish non sense; but here's a thing she did which Indicates thought, reasoning, brainwork. One day a candlestick fell from the mantel on to the thick glass bowl in which Pitti Sing was dream ing. The candlestick cracked the bowl and knocked a small hole in it. Pitti Sing, all alone In the drawing room, saw the water that was essen tial to her existence flowing through the hole, and what do you think she did? She plugged up the leak with her tail, and in that position I found her on my return an hour or so later. She had saved her life, but the end of her tail, from exposure to the air, was all shriveled and cracked. I had to massage It with cold cream before the poor little thing could swim again." There was painful silence for a few minutes; then when Dumply said It looked like rain everybody but Jen kins followed him out. Smoked In Church. Although the present universal habit of smoking is of comparatively recent date, the use of -tobacco was carried to a great excess when it was first introduced. Our ancestors smoked even in church. All such of fenders were solemnly excommuni cated, by Urban VIII. in 1624. and again by Innocence XII. In 1690, when the practice seems to have ex tended to Rome Itself. There was William Breedon, too, vicar of Thorn ton, "a profound divine, and absolute ly the most polite person for-nativl-tles In that age," of whom the astrolo ger Lilly says that "when he had no tobacco he would cut the bell ropes and smoke them." ' , Ancient "Cure" for Madness. In the "Dlctionarium Domestlcum, Being a New and Compleat Household Dictionary for the Use Both of City and Country" (1736), is this sure cure for a malady which has in modern times been regarded as rather ob stinate: "For lunacy and madness Boil three large handfuls of ground Ivy, shred small.-in two quarts of wine till there Is but one-third part remain ing; then strain it and add to it six ounces of the best salad oil; boll it up to an ointment, shave the patient's head, warm the ointment and chafe his head with it. This is Dr. Wadenfleld's remedy, with which a person is grid to have cured 60 lunatlck persons." Sport of the Infant Japanese Girl. Little girls make a play of one thing that in after years becomes la bor, labor of love though It is. So soon as a girl Is old enough, pe.haps three or four, her dolly is tied to her back in the same way that she was fastened to her nurse's back when she was a baby. She carries this about while at play, and as she grows older a larger doll is used until she has grown accustomed to the weight and Is able to carry her baby brother or sis ter, thus relieving her mother, who perhaps works in the rice fields or in a tea garden.

"Oh, I don't intend to be scrupulous about the way I get on," said the young lawyer, who thought himself the greatest ever.

BYvIMPUmTIES Iff TIIE BLOOD Whenever a sore refuses to heal it is because the blood is hot pure and healthy, as it Bhould be, but is infected with poisonous germs or some old blood taint which has corrupted and polluted the circulation. .Those most usually afflicted "with old sores are persons who have reached or passed mid dle life. The vitality of the blood and strength of the system have naturally begun to decline, and the poisonous germs which have accumulated because of a sluggish and inactive condition ol the system, or some hereditary taint which has hitherto been held iu check, now force an outlet on the face; arms, legs or other part of the body. The place grows red and angry, festers and eats into the surrounding tissue until it becomes a chronic and stubborn uleer, fed and kept open by the impurities with which the blood is saturated. Nothing is more trying and disagreeable than a stubborn, nonhealing sore. The very fact that it resists ordinary remedies and treatments is good reason for suspicion; the same germ-producing canefcrous ulcers is .back of every old sore, and especially is this true if the trouble is an inherited one. Washes, salves, nor indeed anything else, applied directly to the sore, can do any permanent good; neither will remov- ffr0.TiJh.tVXg-?BK ing the sore with caustic plasters or the wm tmau pimple at first but it surgeon's knife make a lasting cure.

TH SWIFT SPECIFIC CO., ATLANTA, CAm X I "GET THE FIRST $1,000.' Ancient Axiom That Has Set Many 4 Men to Saving. "Get the first $1,00!). After that money-making is easy." This is the oM-Ume sage advice of the hard-head ed, self-made man. That axiom ha set many men to saving. They fix upon that sum as the glittering, far- off herald of a fortune something to be made. To a man on -a small salary a salary, say, out of which some thin? can be saved weekly without too much deprivation the advice is good. There is something in it that acts ast a stimulus to economy. And who will deny that economy is a good thing or that any truth that lights the way to it should not be known? Many men, therefore, have been buoyed up in their economies by the belief that the first $1,000 is the hard est to get, and that afterward all the rest would be easy and the good things of tho world that follow a boun teous supply of money would be with in easy reach, says' a writer in the Denver Republican. It is a pity that the man who invented that saying could not also have told us wita equal advantage how to turn the $1,009 over and make two of it. It takes a long time to make a wage-earner see that "money works." His idea of mak ing money is to work for it himself. It never occurs to him that money works much easier than he can and without any of the hardships he himself experiences that is to say, until he has got the first $1,000. That usually makeB a young man feel like a financier, and he talks wisely of investments. STYLES OF 4,000 YEARS AGO. Tend to Prove There Is Nothing New Under the Sun. For women archeology assumes a deeply Interesting phase in the ques tion which has been raised by Signor Mosso as to styles In dress as they existed 4,000 years ago. Signor Mos so, the eminent authority on ancient Etrurla, the Roman Forum, and early Crete, has concentrated his great ex perience and knowledge on elucidat ing this bypath of science from his Cretan studies. The general result has been to confirm the old dictum that there is nothing new under the sun. Even the "latest fashions" are antiquated. Signor Mosso finds that 4,000 years ago the ladles of primeval Mycenae wore hats pretty much as they are seen in the showrooms of Paris to-day. They knew what crape trimming was, had tartans before the Scotch, understood the mysteries of corsets lacing In front, short wide sleeves, metal belts, and a style' of dress which an imitative nineteenth century, that considered Itself orig inal, dubbed "Empire." Their prin cipal colors in robes were orange, yellow, blue and purple, which rather upsets the claim of the Phoenicians to have "discovered" purple. Properties of Gold. Pure gold Is unaffected by the at mosphere either at ordinary tempera tures or when the metal is heated. It is also proof against the action of common acids when used singly. Moreover, says the Jewelers' Circular Weekly, it confers its properties more or less upon copper and silver when these metals are alloyed ' with It. Thus, for example, 12, karajt gold will withstand the action of nitric acid and the atmosphere at ordinary tempera ture, but some of the copper will be oxidized during annealing. Nine parts of gold may be alloyed with ten parts of platinum In an ordinary crucible and fire, but such an alloy will not be uniform; a large proportion of plat inum will free Itself from the gold on solidification and a homogeneous alloy of the two metals cannot be obtained. The Cravt of Goldsmith. That Oliver Goldsmith was burled In tbS,. church&ard. of the Temple has been placed Deyona aoutot by the entry in the register. But the:stone on the north side of the Temple church, around which the enthusiasts of the Goldsmith club gather, has been placed on a spot purely conjectural, for the exact position of the grave has never been discovered. -The real site was remembered as late as 18?0. In that year the sexton, a very aged man, who apparently was present at the burial, still venerated an elder tree, which, he said, marked the site of Gold smith's grave. This elder tree seems to have stood a few feet south of the present stone, near the old vestry. Westminster Gazette. , . The Charming Woman.

QUALITIES OF THE OYSTER. One Particularly Good Point Which Bore Might Emulate. A San Franciscan has discovered a new method of cutting short recitals that promise to become too long-wind ed.. An acquaintance of .his, who has a local reputation as a bore, was one day holding forth at : some ; length when the Californlan Interrupted him with: "By the way, did I ever tell you the story of the oyster ?V On, receiv ing a negative reply, he continued: "It seems that when oysters, are taken from the sea they often open their shells sq that the Juice or liquid runs out. As this Is undesirable, the ex perienced oyster gatherer has a tub of water close at hand into which the oyster is plunged as soon as it begins to open its shell." "Well, and what then?" asked the other as the narrator paused. The San Franciscan Bmiled. "Oh, after a while the oyster learns to keep its mouth shut,'! he remarked quietly.
