Nearly all the world over the hare is associated mythically with the e. moon, and it is on this account that to the rabbit has so much to do with le Easter. There has been much dis pute as to why the hare should have anything to do with the moon, but no body has arrived at any satisfactory conclusion on the subject. It is evi dently a folklore notion of extreme antiquity, which partly accounts for re its wide distribution. The rabbit is nocturnal in habit, coming out at night to feed, and that might have or started the idea. It is asserted by students of such matters that the left hind foot of a graveyard rabbit, killed in the dark of the moon, represents the last quarter of the moon, and fir that reason is lucky.

At the farthest end of the street, a weather beaten house, its faded green blinds closed against possible sunshine, its verandas bleak, and wind-swept. To this uncomfortable goal, the stranger forced his way. He questioned a passer-by as to where en tertainment might be found, and was directed uncertainly, to the shabby house at the end of the street. "Mebbe Miss Perkins will take you in" offered the passer-by. When Philip Clogston agreed to run out to the country to look over the farm his elderly sister anticipated buying, he expected to drive the fifty odd miles in his car. Minerva was imperative that he should go no later than Wednesday. and on this Wednesday afternoon of stormy weather, roads leading to the ua frequented country were almost Im passable. So Philip, impatient with this new whim of his whimsical sister, boarded the train. Upon his arrival at Lynden village, he found that the next returning train would not leave until eight o'clock that evening, the farm which he was to pass - judgment upon, was four miles up an isolated road. He decided, still TI angrily, to go back at eight o'clock without fulfilling his errand. What did Minerva want with a farm any way? But then why did Minerva enter into any of the foolish business ventures which claimed her purse and attention. th The shabby old house was opened ba by a grim-faced woman who eyed him with hostility. is "I was directed here," said the con- in fident man of big enterprises. by "('ome in," said Miss Perkins, and N4 be followed into the dismal parlor. q, "I kin give you some ham an' home- a made bread an' coffee," the woman pr offered laconically, "If you want to it glt .warm, come out to the kitchen." , "Thanks," Philip returned drily, "I at will wait here." He settled down In his overcoat frowning. "Woman are m queer," he reflected. "wherever you happen to meet them." His memory bi of his own mother was that of an ex- ol acting invalid. Minerva, with whom m he made his home was a creature of III changing, unreasoning mood. Then al here, was this stolid, unconcerned, vii- a lags woman. He smiled satirically, be he as an engraved motto caught his eye. k god "Every cloud." said the motto, "has a a silver lining." "Great promise that, st in this tomb of a room," he meditated. fj Then across the rattle of wind and rI lng rain outside came a ripple of soft c' e laughter. I It "Well, that's my last splashing I hope." called a girlish voice. Philip looking through the window saw a young woman turn to wave to an old heman who had evidently brought her 1i ow to the shabby house In his buggy. He E heard her explaining to Miss Perkins. O "I came out from the city as a s- tl her prise to visit Aunt Ellen, and I find do- that Aunt Ellen has gone away shop- tl ping until tomorrow. Will you take w me in for the night, please Hannah." " "Well, mobbe," Hannah graciously a the complied, "They's a man In there, h our come to supper," she added. tl "Good afternoon," she greeted d Philip pleasantly, and turned quickly ti to light the forbidden fire. " "We are going to be cheererful" she I told Hannah firmly. s ls. "Hannah," cried the girl "I am u coming out to the kitchen to make a - afluffy omelette to go with that ham; u you used to let me play about in the I Skitchen when I was a little girl, and we will toast the bread, and have our meal here on the little table before the are. No you must not object, a sh you shall be company this evening is Syour own home." a SClogaton threw aside his outer ceat, ' the room, all at once was full of rosy light from fire and lamps. Tbe visit- a SIng girl hummed happily as she laid the white cloth on the small table, NoShe wore a dress of virvid scarle~t which matched the color of her lips. "It's my old gray cmap" she in red Hannah, laughiagly. "1I dyed Sit to wear on days like this, when I'm la I alone; it makes ms feel cheery." Later, as Hannah washed the d , be the girl answered a bit raetfully to hds questioning concernimng her identity. "Who am I? Oh, I am just a fllre, gow I went four years ago to the city to Sstudy art. I was to be a great the illustrator. Aunt Ellea still believes a In me so that she woald sell her farm in order to come on and help me.

New York has long been known In the provinces as the nesting place of tun bank rolls. In this nest either they rig grow or they die young. A bank roll rel is a sensitive plant, as It were, being kin Intfuenced quickly and permanently in by climatic and diplomatic changes. rio Nothing can become discouraged more so quickly than a bank roll in New York, an and nothing can gain a satisfied and prosperous maturity more quickly if be it gets the right start, attends to Its own business and keeps away from pr strangers. M, Generally speaking. I would recom- as mend this town as the best health re- se sort for bank rolls in the world. Some bank rolls come here in the full view id of perfect health, with perfectly nor mal chest measurements and waist- th lines suited to their age, and immedl ately go into a decline which no th science is able to stem. They seem to be victims of the old-fashioned disease or known as galloping consumption. of t Others come here in a very frail bi state of health, puny in fact, and by to judicious exercise take on weight and I require larger and larger belts. Cir- hi cuamstances alter bank rolls.-Roy K o. Moulton, in the New York MaiL a, w Avoid Letters. nl The editors of a recent volume of II literary selections for the use of col- e r loge students calmly omit Lamb and Haslltt and proceed to justify the L omission by the remarkable assertion that to encourage a pupil "in pleasant a rambles with Ella or Hallitt through a " the by-ways of literature Is to put a ti s weapon Into the hands of those critics tl who condemn the English teacher as 5 a pedant of a dilettante and to y ' hasten the exodus of college men from s the liberal arts course."

The ii neatest is the one recorded by Cree- 2 t, ey, which was bestowed by some wag y upon him when he married the widow - of the second Lord Ribblesdale--"the 4 Widow's Mite." John Russell was a c a frail and delicate child from the first, p t but his physique cannot have been t helped by the hardship of his school s Sdays. He had to be taken away from b d Westminster because he could not g * stand the fagging and unwholesome b food. And before that came a private t school at 8aunbury, where, as he re- a called in later life, he found the mut- b ton fat so intolerable that he dropped t It under the table.

I SThe flapper of 200 years ago had nd one besetting weaknemss that is not ht shared by her modern sister. The i use of snuff was one of the petty vices of the young lady of fashion in the Eighteenth century. The practle a elicited a roar of protest from a gem m- tleman who wrote a letter on the sub SJect in 1711. He tells of the conduct of a young gentlewoman in church, and declares "she pulls out her box ay in the middle of the sermon and, to led show that she has the audacity of a Be well-bred woman, sho ofered It to the men as well as to tho women who sit net her. Lest Sunday, when they st1 came about fer the oedrlia, she gave a her charity with a very good air, but rl t the sae time sked the ecmrc wardam if be wmld takeo a palc." AS TYPE OF MONOTHEISM Melohizedek So Figures in Pages of Scripture and as Character in Legends. Melchlizedek is a v:igue character occasionally nletioned in the Scrip tures. whose name means "king of righteousness." The muost dietllite references ii, himi ilndicate thlt hlie as king of Salemt. and priest of Jehovah in the time of Abrullln, uniting the royal with the pit.estly dignity, and so becoming a welcome type for the ancient writers. Later on his name seetms to have become more or less legendary, and was used in a figurative sense as "a priest forever after the order of Melchizedek." and he is placed in the same category as the Messiah, HIlm self, apparently as a type of ancient monotheism. Still later he becomes Identified with Shern, the son of Noah. and the ancestor of Abraham, and is the subject of an elaborate story in the Egyptian book of Adam and Eve. In this story he is represented as having been chosen of God "from all gen erations of men." to stand by the body of Adam after it had been brought back to Jerusalem. lie is supposed to have remained with Adam's body under the protection of an angel until he encountered Abraham. He is one of the four mentioned in Holy Writ as "without father and without mother without descent, having neither begin. nling of days nor end of life, but made like unto the son of God abiding for ever." What Is WIreless? Wireless is man's control of electe magnetic waves in the ether. But what are electro-magnetic waves? Briefly. they are disturbances traveling through ether or space, writes French Strother in the World's Work. When you see sunlight, you see electro-mag netic waves, at such a number of vi brations per second that they are per ceptible to your senses through your sense of feeling or touch. But both light and heat are exactly the same thing, namely, electro-magnetlc waves. The only difference between them Is that the lngths of the waves are dif-" ferein. T'hewiave-length of light is al most Inconceivably short-about one fifty-thousandth of an inch. The wave length of heat iS longer-about one ten-thousandth of an Inch. Now, wire less is exactly the same thing as light and beat, except that its wave-length is Immensely longer-anywhere fros 200 feet to 20 miles.
