Co ummauI e ~th Ls Japesee Leglie. A teacher of English in Japan re cently gave as an examination ques tion, "What is a ventilator?" Besides the number of answers that were ap proximately correct, there were two which indicated that the students must have been absent either in body or mind on the day when the school room ventilator had been discussed. The first was, "The ventilator lives in the mountains;" the second, "Colum bus was a great ventilator," When occasion offered the teacher reminded his class that attention anf application are requisite for acquirin:; knowledge and seriously asked them why any one should have given an answer such as the one concerning Columbus. One of the best spokesmen in the class essayed an explanation somewhat as follows: "Columbus brought new ideas back to the old world; he changed the current of thought and opened a great door into the new and outer world; there fore he was a great ventilator." Youth's Companion. Washing Your Hands. When you go to the washstand and carefully wash your hands with a gen erous application of soap and hard brush do not think for an instant that your hands are clean. The tenacious microbe refuses to be disturbed and clings to the flesh throughout the whole operation. There are some chem ical compounds which will dislodge the busy bacilli to a certain extent, but not entirely. According to the in vestigations of a medical authority of the Prussian army, the best results in the direction of giving the hands a sanitary cleaning are accomplished by the use of alcohol. A bath of pure alcohol will remove about 99 per cent of the germs. Where it is desired to clean the hands hygienically it is rec ommended that the hands be not first washed with water, for this will so adulteiate the alcohol that it cannot accomplish its work as effectively as otherwise. The Story of a Famous Hymn. The famous hymn beginning "God moves in a mysterious way," known as "Cowper's Hymn." had its ori gin as follows: Cowper was all his life the victim of melancholia and more than once attempted suicide. One day, bent upon destroying himself, he got into a cab and ordered the driver to take him to a certain point on the river where he intended to drown himself. The cabman. noticing his strange appearance and feeling that all might not be right with him, drove hilm about the city and finally stopped in front of the poet's door. Steppipg out and recognizing the old familiar surroundings and shocked at the thought of his narrow escape, Cowper exclaimed, "God moves in a mysterious way his wonders to per form," and, rushing in, immediately composed the immortal hymn. The Man With a Cold. The sympathy given to the man with a hard cold is purely perfunctory. We know, or at least we think we know, that he will not die. We know that he is thoroughly wretched, yet we are equally certain that in. three days or so he will be coming upstairs two at a time.. This does not comfort him, though he may know it himself. He the#efore feels himself an outcast. a pariah. He is cut off from the ordinary human relations. If he so much as kisses his wife or child he is a blackguard, mentally self convict ed of it. Nobody loves him. and he may go out into the kitchen and drink cough sirup.-Boston Transcript. Keeping the Aoters Clean. Some years ago, when playing in Leeds, I started a swimming compe ttltion among the members of my com pany and to encourage them otered as a prise a silver loving cup (won, by the way, by the late Edward Lon en). The event apparently created some interest in the town, and a friend heard two men engage in a discussion as follows: First Man-I say, durst to know this 're Terry's given a coop to bes' swim mer I' company? t Second Man-Aye. What's that for? First Man-Oh. I suppose it's to keep them play actors clean.-Edward Terry ia Era Annual. Net "a Royal Maggot." I a royal maggot!

The brilliancy of the clear autumn night was dimming in the first taint light of the dawn when the work of sealing the shafts began. Up into the cloudless sky, through the tangled steel work of the tipple, a tall tower of black smoke 800 feet high poured up into the still air and faded into the dawn. In two hours the black pits were covered, first with a layer of rails, and then on this was laid a solid bed of concrete, and two hours later only a faw thin wisps of smoke that poured up through cracks along the edges of the great seal, like steam benath the lid of a teakettle, told of the Inferno that was seething in the mine 400 feet below.

The famous beauties of the world are wise when they leave no portraits of themselves. Take Marguerite of Vi, lois. She was an immoral, dishonor able, criminal, scheming, unscrupulous villainess, but she was dowered with such charm that there was not a Jailer or an enemy she could not charm when she tried. No. nor a woma i-not even the wives of her lovers. Men came from every country, taking year long journeys, only to see her and went away, after a ,lttle glimpse, saying they had "seen loveliness itself." Then one sees her portraits. Too much fore head, not enough eyebrow, a straight nose and expressive mouth (in one pic ture a lovely mouth)-and that is all. Mary, queen of Scots, was very lovely -three kingdoms battled because of her beauty-and yet her pictures leave one cold. Fouche said her portrait showed every trait of the lowest crim inal type. That was before he knew whose picture he criticised.-London Truth. Lost Meanings. "Those who care for the beginnings of things may be glad that the quill pen survives to remind us that the original pen was plucked from a bird." observes a writer. "Germans and Frenchmen are in no danger of for getting that, thanks to their respec tire words 'feder' and 'plume.' but the English 'pen' suggests a feather only when one chooses to think about it and recall the Latin 'penna.' Almost all our writing materials are no longer what etymologically they profess to be. Paper is no longer made of pa pyrus; a pencil is not a little tall 'penicillus,' like a camel's hair brush: the 'lead' of a lead pencil is not lead, and the 'india rubber' with which we erase its marks does not and never did come from India. Even of parch ment there. is probably not a fragment in the country, except, perhaps, in a museum and coming from Pergamum, in Asia."-Chicago News. Life In the Icy Arctic. In the morning I was generally the one to waken first and would either start the alcohol lamp myself or call Astrup for that purpose. Our morning meal consisted of a lump of pemmi can, six biscuits, two ounces of butter and two cups of tea each. As soon as this was finished everything was re packed on the sledge. I then read the odometer, aneroid and thermometer and, taking the guidon, which had waved and fluttered over the kitchen throughout our hours of rest, from its place, stepped forward and the next march was commenced. After from four to six hours of marching we would halt for half an hour to eat our simple lunch of pemmican and give the dogs a rest and then after four to six hours of traveling hqlt again and repeat the already described route. Robert E. Peary. '"The Great White Journey." Got Rid of the Soum. She was a city bride who had never before taken a hand in housekeeping and knew but little about things in the kitchen. A few mornings ago she got after the milkman. "What's the matter with your milk?" she said, with gredt vehemence. "I don't know," he replied. "What do you find wrong with it?" "Well," she said, "every morning It it covered with a nasty yellow.ucam." "And what do you do with the seam?" "Why, I skim it off, of conanrse, and throw it in the garbage can."--Farm era' Gude. Soarificing the Woman. That Carlyle could contemplate with equanimity being unpraised, unmoney ed and neglected all his life, that he required neither the world's padding nor its breath and could be happy withont them, was pardonable and per a-p commendable. That he should expect another person to share this unmoneyed, puddinglees and rather forlorn condition was scarcely con sistent with such lofty piLlciples. Men may macrifce themselves, it they please, to imagined high duties and ambitions, but they have no right to marry wives and sacrifce them.--Exlchange. How People Die. It Is estimated that the average duration of human life is thirty-three years. A quarter of the people die dur Lng the seventh year and halt before the seventeenth. Of every 1,000 pe sons one only reaches 100 years, six In 10 get to f and one in 50 to 80. It Is further estimated that throughout the world 50,000,000 die annually, 188, 000 a day, nearly 6,000 an hour, 90 a -inute, or three in every two seconds.

In making insurance maps certain features are considered essential, and the growth of the system has proved their wisdom and changed them only as regards the amount of detail that has been incorporated. Of first impor tance were the colors to show the dif ferent materials used, in the construe tion of a building. Naturally red seemed a proper color to signify brick and yellow to signify wood. These colors have always been employed for these materials. Other colors have been added from time t-. time, thus blue for stone, gray for iron, etc. In fixing signs and characters for such details as stairways, fire escapes, dumb waiter shafts, etc., a principal object was to make them plain and distinct. They must be easily under stood by an underwriter without ref erence to my key or marginal foot notes. This object has been carried out, with the result that when these insur ance maps are examined by an insur ance man today each sign or charac ter has such an individuality of its own that it can be easily distinguished and is not confused with another. Cassler's Magazine. The Word "Fudge." "Fudge" is a word with a history. There are prosaic etymologists, as there always are, who derive it from a Gaelic word mealing deception, but Isaac Disraelli's view is much more in teresting. lie derives it from a certain Captain Fudge, who seems to have been a marine Munchausen. "You fudge it" is said to have been his crew's equivalent to the modern "Rats!" In a collection of some pa pers of William Crouch, the Quaker, published in 1712 it is recorded that one Degory Marshall informed Crouch that "in the year 1064 we were sen tenced for banishment to Jamaica by 'Judges Hyde and Twisden, and our number was fifty-five. We were put on board the ship Black Eagle. The master's name was Fudge, by some called Lying Fudge."-London Stand The Leipzig Book Fair. Leipzig is the largest publication een ter in the world. More books and pe riodicals are printed there than any where else, and more people are en gaged in making and- using printers' supplies than in London, New York, Berlin or Paris. Many of the orders for these publications come from Eng land, France, Austria and other coun tries because the mechanical work can be done in Leipzig much cheaper than elsewhere. More than half of the transactions in books take place at the Leipzig book fair, which occurs every year at the jubilate, the first week in Easter, when booksellers and publish ers from all parts of Germany assem ble to compare and balance accounts and to make contracts for the next year. A Bawbee From Carlyle. I used to see Carlyle when I lived as a child in Chelsea. I regarded him with extraordinary aversion and fear. One day I was sent to post a letter. I suppose I was older, though uncon scions, as always, of anything ahead. I cannoned into Carlyle. The impact laid me fiat on the pavement, where I yelled for some minutes, though sooth ed eventually by England's great think er. And then-this is the point of the story-Carlyle dived into his pockets, produced a halfpenny and said kind ly, "Here is a bawbee for Bobby." I have the halfpenny to this day. When Mr. Carlyle died I was put into deep mourning. He was the first and per haps the most interesting of all my street acquaintances.-Robert Ross in Leaden Bystander. 8elf Relia, s.

In the old countries of Europe the bird table may still be seen in the rural districts. A tbrd table is nmade by driving a short stake into the ground aid firmly nailing a shallow wooden box on top of it. The box generally I'lea'tlres two by three fe.et and has a numlber of holes in the bottom to drain It of rain or snow water. It is always high enough to be beyond reach of any cat that might try to leap to it from the ground. Care also is taken to select a spot far enough from fences, trees or buildings to pre vent cats front pouncing down on it when the birds are feeding. Into the bird table go scraps from the house table and kitchen, ie-'ces of stale bread and cake, strips of fat meat. potato parings, carrot ends, bits of any kind of table greens, apple skins and cores and cabbage leaves. All kinds of nronnligratory birds cone to feed at the bird table, and many a song bird has been saved by it from starvation when a deep snow has cov ered the ground and seed grasses. An English naturalist counted twenty seven species of birds at the bird table in his garden in a single morning after a heavy fall of snow. Cellini's Quick Cure. Benvenuto Cellini when about to cast his famous statue of Perseus, now In the Loggia dei Lanzi at Florence, was taken with a sudden fever. In the midst of his suffering one of his workmen rushed into his sick chamber and exclaimed: "Oh, Benvenuto! Your statue is spoiled, and there is no hope whatever of saving it!" Cellini said that when he heard this he gave a howl and leaped from his bed. Dress ing hastily, he rushed to his furnace and found his metal "caked." He or dered dry oak wood and fired the fur nace fiercely, working in a rain that was falling, stirred the channels and saved his metal. He continues the story thus: "After all was over I turn ed to a plate of salad on a bench there and ate with a hearty appetite and drank together with the whole crew. Afterward I retired to my bed, healthy and happy, for it was two hours be fore morning, and slept as sweetly as If I had never felt a touch of illness." Fantastic Headgear.
