Funny Peasant Notions.
The astronomical lore of the Russian
peasantry of the north, center and
south of the empire is limited to a
knowledge of the existence of the sun
and the moon and stars, of three con
stellations, of the Milky way. of one
planet, of comets. shooting stars and
meteors. The sun is to all a mysteri
ous and beneficent being.
The moon. covered with ice and
snow, is ever in flight from its broth
er, the sun. Upon its disk is portray
ed the murder of Abel by Cain. the
latter being done to death with a
pitchfork. The lunar rays are inalig
nant. and evil comes to those who
sleep unprotected from them. The
horns of the moon afford information
as to the weather.
The stars are lamps or candles light
ed and extinguished by the Eternal. A
shooting star is the soul of one Just
passed away. Comets are heralds of
war and famine. No Russian ever
forgets that the Napoleonic war fol

not make a nation. The nation in ev

unless the light of your constitution
can shine there, unless the beauty of

Paul Pry Police.
The German police have a consum
Ing curiosity about the visitor. They
are polite, but the curiosity must be
satisfied. and It covers well nigh every
point upon which information can be
given, says Mrs. Alfred Sidgwick in
""Hcme Life in Germany."
Before you have been in Germany a
fortnight the police expect to know all
about you. You have to give them
your father's Christian and surname
and tell them how he earned his living
and where he was born; also your
mother's Christian and maiden name
and where she was born. You must
declare your religion and if you are
married give your husband's Christian
and surname; also where he was born
and what he does for a living. If you
happen to do anything yourself.
though, you need not mention It.
They do not expect a woman to be
anything further than married or sin
gle. But you must say when and
where you were last in Germany and
how often you have been and why you
have come now and what you are do
ing and how long you propose to stay.
Emergency Gas Pliers.
If at any time you need a pair of
gas pliers, perhaps to take off a gas tip
that is not working well, and you have
none at hand you can always make a
pair that will do the work for the mo
ment, although they might not be just
the thing for a gas fitter. Take a large
pair of scissors, and you will fnd that
where the handles join the blades they
usually open out into a sort of oval.
By putting a piece of sandpaper or
anything rough round the base of the
gas burner you can place this open
part of the handle of the scissors
round it and then press the blades of
the scissors together so as to get lev
erage enough to twist the burner loose.
There are many little light jobs that
can be done with a pair of pliers made
out of a pair of scissors If you are
careful to have something between
the handle and the object so a to pre
vent the scissors from slipping off.

the records of history to discover who
were the first mountain climbers. It
gives the palm to Moses for his as

Noah for hls ascent of Mount Ararat
because he made it in a boat. There
s sufficient evidence to show that the
ancients thought mountain climbing
sheer madness. No one in the time of
Horace or Polybius wanted to go
climblnlg for a summer holiday. A
Chinese emperor in the seventh cen

fashionable in the east, but the first
