pp||||A MIND AT PEACE.
Truly Said to Lend Grateful Music by Every Passer-by. The influences of a mind at peace are beyond all calculating. Those who understand that the laws of the sub tler matters work through thought functions know that thoughts are things and go whithersoever we send them, that they build real atmospheres around us, and hover in.clouds above and about our friends. The harmon ized and loving mind distills its peace through all the mental atmosphere, wafting waves of contentment and pleasure as far as they reach. We know what sweet wholesomeness seems to be exhaled by the mere pres ence of some people. It is the inner harmonies of their minds permeating the mental and moral atmosphere. It is by the power of such gentle and healthful influences as these that we give our finest sympathy to the distressed. In our presence the wilt ing flower raises its drooping head. Strength is imparted to the sad and weary heart, courage to the despair ing, heart vitality to the loveless and lonely. Proof ourselves against dis aster, we mend the ills of others. The mind that is a mansion filled with all sweet sounds and harmonies lends its grateful music to every pass er-by. SPARKS FROM THE WIRES. William J. Bryan rescued Mrs. EL B.

Lucky and Unlucky Signs Are Many •—White Stockings Highly Valued —Peculiar Marks That Show Speed of Animal. The people of the Holy Land have Implicit faith in the following points about horses: A white, star in the center of the forehead of a horse is considered a lucky sign. Small ears and a small mouth in a horse denote good breed. Two small black spots located just above the hoof on the white-stock inged left hind leg of a horse is an unlucky sign. In certain parts of the country a. horse is valued by the number of white stockings he may have. If it have one it Is said to be worth 100 coins (any coins from paras upward, according to the breed, paces, etc., of the animal.) If it have two or three white stockings it is valued in the same way, but if it have four then the horse is said to be worth nothing at all. A horse that is habitually pawing the ground is said to be digging its owner's grave. A horse's speed can be reckoned by the position of the small hair twist that is usually found at the end of the ribs close to the body projection on the animal's flank behind the saddle. The higher from the ground the hair twists the faster the animal can go. Two hair twists placed one above the other in the center of the fore head of a horse is called a Kabr Maftuh ("open grave"). It is con sidered very unlucky to ride a horse with this mark, as the person who does so is destined to die within a short space of time thereafter. The hair twist on a horse's neck is both a lucky and an unlucky sign. If it curl forward toward the horse's head, it is a lucky sign, for it signifies that the sword of the rider conquers if, on the other hand, it be reversed and curl backward, then the sword of the enemy will conquer. The bay colored horse is said to be the swiftest of all the horses. A story to illustrate this is told of a certain Arab sheik who, having been engaged in a fight with another tribe, was taking his flight with his little son. They were both mounted on a mag nificent white mare, which belonged to the sheik, and which had always been highly valued on account of the great speed at which it could go. After having ridden some little distance, the sheik asked his son to look round and see if they were being followed. The boy replied that there was some one riding after them on a black horse. The sheik seemed satisfied on hearing this report, but presently re peated his question. The boy an swered that they were still being pur sued, but this time the horse was white. "Never mind," said his father, "mine is better." In a few minutes he asked a further report,^ and the reply given was the same, 'with the difference that the horse was a chestnut. The sheik, how ever, put his question a fourth time but upon being told by his son that the pursuer was mounted on a bay, he cried out: "Then we are lost, for there is no horse which it cannot over take." His words proved to be true, for in a short time they were caught up and captured. Origin of Barbed Wire. "The luckiest invention in history, said a patent office official, "was that of barbed wire. It came about by accident. "Isaac L. Ellwood was the inventor of barbed wire. In his youth he lived in De Kalb, 111., and having a neighbor whose pigs trespassed on his garden, he put up one day a wire fence of his own make. This fence had barbs and points on it it was queer and ugly but it kept out the Pigs. "It was a real barbed wire fence, the first in the world, and there was millions of money in It, but young Ell wood and his friends laughed at its freak appearance. "One day two strangers saw the fence, perceiving how well it kept out the pigs, realized how cheap' it was realized, in a word, its value, and or dered several tons of it from Ellwood Furthermore, thgy contracted to seli for a term of years all the barbed wire he could produce. "Ellwood borrowed $1,000 and set up a little factory. A few years later he had paid back this loan and was worth a Bmall besides." matter of $15,000,000 Millions, But—.
