TEXT TAKEN TOO LITERALLY
Ten-Year-old Julia Gets Into Zad
Graces of Mother by Giving
Tramp a Half-Dollar.
"Be not forgetful to entertain
strangers; for thereby honme have en
tertained angels unawares."
The foregoing quotation is from
chapter xiii, verse 2, Book of Hebrews,
and it is in-roduced solely because it
const$tutes a vital p:art of this story.
Julia is ten years old and she goes to
Sunday school. It appears that on a
recent occasion the Sunday school
teacher had considerable to say about
this matter of "entertaining angels
unawares." Anyway, it made a deep
Impression with Julia.
A few days after the lesson Julia's
mother left her in charge of the house
for a few hours. When the mother re
turned she went to a particular cup
in the cupboard to extract therefrom
one-half dollar. In this cup is kept
the family pin money, and Julia's
mother knew that s"e had put 60
cents there before she had gone out.
But the half dollar was gone. There
was an expression of anxiety on
Julia's face and mother scented mis
"Did you take that money?" asked
the mother, somewhat 4rerely.
Julia broke into tears: "I gave it to
a man that came to the back door,"
soblhd the little girl.
"Gave it to a man!" exclaimed the
mother. "What for?"
"I thought he might be God," tear
fully replied Julia.-Kaneas City Star.

GOING BACK INTO THE PAST
Men of Science Seeking to Discover
Facts of Life of Five Million
Out in the Nevada desert the pro
fessors have been prying into the se
crets of 5,000,000 years ago.
The discoveries are said to be most
important by those who are interested
in prehistoric relics. 'The learned
men put the discoveries at the mio
cene period, which is some 5,.000.000
) .ars ago.
Among the discoveries is an ante
diluvian fish that is eighteen feet
long. What a whopper of a fish liar
the prehistoric man must have been
when he went back to the cave and
told the family about the big one that

must have been a peculiar spectacle,

the size of a large dog.
Five million years is too big a flight
"of .time to ask even our fancy to
cover. Trips to Mars and visits to
the man in the moon are within our
range, but when 'one is asked to go
back to the real back-actionary period
of the world, we have to draw the
line, especially when we learn that we
have to deal with three toed horses
and eighteen feet long minnows.
And yet we have to wonder at what
manner of a world it was then; we
have perforce to try to people it with
human beings and with animals of the
earth.-the sea and the air; we have
to wonder whether they, too, were
bothered with presidential candidates,
t whether the women demanded the
right to vote and whether peek-a-boo
stockings were just coming into style.
And, by the way. the professors
found a dinosaur there, too. We nev

see one. but one was found, so let it

PANAMA HAT OF COMMERCE
Prized Headgear Made From Palm
Leaves Grown in Central and
Panama hats are made from a palm
of the "chandelier-tree" family. which
grows wild in enormous quantities in
the northern parts of South America
and in Central America. The greater
number of highest grado Panamas are
made in Ecuador, with Peru a good
second. The best of these sell for
The young, tender leaves of the
plant are gathered before they un
fold; all the. ribs and coarse veins
are removed, and the rest is reduced
to shreds without being separated
from the stem. The shredded leaves
are placed in large eart'rnware jars
filled with water and the juice of
lemons and left to soak for from six
to ten days. After this they are
spread out to dry and bleach in the
The fbers are woven upon a block
held upon the knees. The coarse hats
are finished in two or three days; the
finest take as many months. The best
times for weaving are in the early
morning and in the rainy season,
when the air is moist. In the middle
of the day and in the dry season the
fiber Is apt to break.
Where He Get Them.
MIckey and Pat had been at school
together, but had drifted apart in after
life. They met one day: and the con
versation turned on athletics. "Did you
ever meet my brother Dennis?" aslked
Pat. "He has Just won a gold medal
in a Marathon race." "That's fine "
said Mike. "But did I ever tell you
about my uncle at Bal!ythomas?" Pat
agreed that he eculd not ca.ll him to
mind. "We!!," continued Mike, "he's
got a gold medal for five miles and
one for ten miles, a silver medal for
swimming, two cups for wrestling, and
a lot of badges for boxing and cy
eting." "He musrt he a great athlete,
Indade." said Pat. "You're wrong."
cried Mike. "He keeps a pawnshop!"
Horseshoes of rope are largely
made use of in Germany and some
ornter foreign countries, and it is said
that there should be some demand in
this .ountry, on account of the char
acter of the paving which largely
prevails in this country and which
is hard on the feet of the animals.
The rope is sometimes reinforced
with wire and som.wtimea it is tarred
and after being cut and shapel is se
cured to an iron shoe which Is se
cured to the animal's hoof. While its
appearance is not as neat and elegant
as a shoe of metal, the soft cushion
of rope is very grateful on the ani
mal's feet, and from a humane stand'
point It should be more generously
made use of.
Device to Protect 8heep.
A device to protect sheep from the
inroads of wolves, coyotes and other
animals has been invented by U. C. I
Winchester of Thermopolis, Wyo.
The machine consists of an automatic
,un which will shoot a blank cartridge
every thirty, forty or sixty minutes,
as arranged, while a bull's eye lantern
is so adjusted as to revolve and flash
t, light in every direction. It makes
more than one revolution a minute,
operating by means of a coiled spring
add cog wheels, a sort of clockwork,
n fact. The mechanism is enclosed
f, a storm and dust proof metal case
and mounted on four adjustable legs.
It has a weight of twenty-five pounds,
so that it can be carried with the
sheepman's outfit with no daicenity.

Spanish Wedding Is Ruined if One
Person Appears Entirely in Black
-Some Other Signs.
In Spain the wedding is spoiled if
one of the guests appears entirely in
black, or if the bride looks into a
mirror after orange blossoms and veil
are fast in her headdress.
When 3 person's hair ends split. it's
taken by the superstitious for a sign
that she is either a witch or has been
bewitched. As blond hair splits more
readily than dark hair, all witches,
spirits and sorceresses have blond or
red hair, according to the standard of
On the marriage eve there is often
much good-natured rivalry between
the groom and the bride in the Slav
countries as to who shall blow out
the candle, for the person who does
will be first to die." It is impossible
to trace the origin of this superstition,
yet it prevails in aristocratc society
as well as in the peasant's hut, even
as like this, that "to insure the life
and health of the children" the wom
an must occupy the right side of the
bed. In addition, !he must not smoke
before her forty-fifth year.
There is a superstition in this coun

a broom. The bud of birch broom is
used in Southern Germany as a pre

other articles are enclosed in a pink

Old Roman Wall Unearthed.
A part of the wall which once en
closed old St. Paurs, London, has been
discovered in excavations at the cor
ner of Paternoster Row and St. Paul's
alley in London. The wall, which is
about 60 feet long. is made of chalk
and rubble, and Was built In the
twelfth century. On the same site
pieces of a Roman amphora, Roman
vases and some Samian ware have
also been found. Other 'finds" include
a camel's skull unearthed in High Hol
born and a large quantity of pipes of
the eighteenth century. Under some
old stables in Bartholomew Close
one of the oldest parts of London
three-Norman arches have been found.
They are close to one another, and
are believed to have formed part of
the cloisters of the priory which once
stood on this site.
