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.

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,

for a malady which has in modern
times been regarded as rather ob

head with it. This is Dr. Wadenfleld's
remedy, with which a person is grid

Little girls make a play of one

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

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

friend,, "they'll put you under the

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.

"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.
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.

The Charming Woman.
Of all the women born into an un
grateful and unappreclailve world none
can compare to the really charming
one. We may admire the beauty and
gaze in awe at the bluestocking, hug
the "dear things of our acquaintance"
and thump the "good, sort" on the
back, but in the presence of a person
ality which "charms" us we remain
in' speechless and almost breathless
fascination. Truly of every such
woman can It be said which was said

cinating women of his time, that she
walks "like a goddess on the clouds."

oyster is plunged as soon as it begins
