liar juxtaposition of ocean, bay,
mountain, foot-hills and valleys, and
the arrangement of bluffs and ridges

causes of the heavy fogs.

ARCH:RY IN DAYS OF OLD.

tluno to lie Shot Over.
In England shooting with the long
bow was for centuries the chief na
tional pastime, and its practice was
enforced by several acts of parlia
ment. Two kinds of arrows were
used-first, the flight arrow, a long.
thin arrow, with plain iron point,
which was employed only for long
distance shooting; second, the sheaf
arrow, a heavier shaft than the for
;mer, tipped with a jagged, barbed
iron head, two-pronged like a fork,
which was the weapon for short
ranges. By an act bf Henry VIII., it
was forbidden for any man over 24
years old to shoot at a mark nearer
than 220 yards with a flight arrow,
,r 140 yards with a sheaf arrow. The
,ld French archers, however, justly
celebrated as they were for the long
range and precision of their shots,
could not accomplish more than 600
Yards. The greatest range which otu
modern bowmen can attain is from
300'to 400 yards. In 1795 the Turkish
ambassador attended a meeting of the
Toxopholite society in London, and
there shot against the wind 415 yards
and with the wind 463 yards. He had
a short Turkish bow, and a very light
arrow 25 inches long, with small
In bygone days, therefore, when our
Pncestors were famous and formida
ble with the longbow, the shooting
grounds attached to every town, if not
also village, in the kingdom answered
o the volunteer rifle ranges of mod.
ern times. It would appear, however,
that the annual meetings of the Rifle
association had their counterpart in
the open competitions which were
frcquently held in the neighborhood
,f Finsbury. There is extant "A plan
of all the marks belonging to the Hon
,rable artillery company in the fields
near Finsbury with the true dis
tances as they stood anno 1737, for
the use of longbowu, crossbows, hand
guns and artillery." Eight or 10
itelds are included in the plan, and
the whole length of this early Bisley
appears to be one mile, by about 400
yards wide. The longest distance be
tween any two marks is 265 yards.
What may be termed the first inter
national shooting competition was
held on the "Field of the Cloth of
Gold," when the English crossbow
men matched themselves in friendly
rivalry against the French. The range
was 12-score yards; and the English
team, which included Henry VIII. in
person, came off easy winners.
The bow for several centuries after
the invention of small arms was con
idered the more perfect weapon, and
lid not disappear from the English
army until 1627.. Charles II., on his
restoration, did much toward the re
vival of archery. During that reign
important meetings were held at
Hampton Court and in Hyde Park
and attracted as many as 7000 arch
ers and crossbowmen from all parts
of the country. The crossbowmen
shot nearly 20-score yards, and to the
amazement of spectators made excel
lent shooting at that distance. At one
of these meetings in Hyde Park three
regiments of foot, which were being
drilled in the vicinity, threw down
their muskets in disgust and broke
their ranks to go and watch the old
national pastime. These displays gen
erally concluded with showers of
whistling arrows, which are supposed
to have been used by the picket
guards to give notice to the camp of
the enemy's approach during the
night. From that period until the
latter part of the 18th century, arch
ery appears to have been almost for
gotten, and then was revived as a
fashionable and pleasing amusement

M. Bourget has detected the pres- I
ence of iodine, not only in the thyroid I
glands, but also in the blood and in
nearly all the organs of the human
body. Plants absorb iodine from the I
soil, to which it is brought by the
undergrounu waters; herbivorous an- I

food, and man, in his turn, takes it I
in with the flesh of animals. It is I

Mr. Arctowski, the geologist of the
Antarctic expedition in the steamer
Belgica, calls attention to the differ
ence in the distribution of ice around
the two poles of the earth. The floa.
ing ice of the north.'he says, comes
from true glaciers which are pushed
down through the valleys until they
reach the water, but the glacial caps
themselves do not meet the sea. At
the south, on the contrary, perpetual
snow is encountered at the 65th de
gree of latitude, and it is probable
that the floating ice of the Antarctic
originates from a layer covering the
whole polar crown.
Country folk are firmly of the opin
ion that the tumble bug is an excel
lent barometer and that it takes flight
only when a season of fair weather is
coming. M. Fabre, a French natur
alist, has investigated the question
thoroughly and has come to the con
clusion that this insect is, in fact,
more sensitive than the best barom
eters, and that it can veritably be
used to predict fine weather.' It is to
changes of electric tension that the
insect is sensitive. Whether the
American variety is likely to he use

During an explosion in the crater
of Mt. Vesuvius on May 9, 1900, one
of the volcanic bombs hurled sky
ward and the largest one observed
attained an elevation of a third of a
mile, and then fell back upon the
mountain. As it now lies, its height
exceeds that of a man standing beside
it, and its estimated weight is 30
tons. Mr. Manteucci, the geologist,
says that the energy of the explosion
of steam that threw this huge projec
tile must have equalel about 600,000
horse power. When the masses of
partially fluid lava from which such
bombs are formed rise in the air they
rotate, and are thus caused to assume
a more or less globular shape.
In his recent lecture before the
Royal society on "The Nadir of Tem
perature" Professor James Dewar
states that the boiling point of helium
-tae point at which it would change
from a gas to a liquid-appears to
be about five degrees on the absolute
scale. This is 15 degrees below the
boiling point of hydrogen. Hydrogen
solidifies at about 16 degrees abso
lute. Professor Dewar has hopes of
being able to liquify helium, although
this has not as yet certainly been
done. Tne operation depends on sub
jecting helium to the same process
that has succeeded with hydrogen,
only instead of using liquid air under
exhaustion as the primary cooling
agent, liquid hydrogen must be em
The Farmer'm Boy and 5niceae.
A banker, a lawyer and a preacher
sat in a parlor car on the Hudson
River railroad enjoying the beauty of
a cc.ultr:, New York landscape after a
,Tune ruin. "On that tarm,"' said the
banker, pointing out of the car win
dow, "14 years ago Dr. James F. Mc
Kerno:. then a farmer's boy, tended a
sick sheep. He was skillful, gentle and
patient; the suffering animal got well.
There were vague dreams of another
life, of study and struggle, on his mind,
and the young man borrowed some
money the following autumn and came
to New York. Eleven years ago he was
graduated at the Columbia Medical
colege-after three years of work and
recitation from 7 a. m. until 11 p. m.,
study until 1 a. m., and as scant time
for eating as for sleeping. In six weeks
aft.r graduation he was supporting
himself, examining applicants for in
surance in an industrial company. In
five years he was able to study a spe
,.iaity in the .,eat'r.crtL of the throat
andl ear. He is making $25,000 a year
now, and works juo: as hard a. he
ever did. Hie is one ilstance of the
farmer's boy who comes to the city
and conquers fame and fortune, but
there are not so many now as there
used to be."
And there seems to be considerable
food for reflection in this last state
ment. Perhaps one hears less of these
ambitious country lads than in the old
A Feif-I)unmping Incket.
A relf-dumping hoisting bucket, for
handling coal, ore, gravel and the like,
has been perfected which has the ball
ends pivoted to its lower half, and the
pivots work in slots instead of in
round holes. The loaded bucket is
kept from tipping by a catch on the
ball, which hooks into the top of the
vessel. When the bucket strikes the
dump pile the slotted ball drops
straight down by gravity, releases the
catch, and the bucket, being thus un
balanced, turns over.

Modern methods In pearl fishing
have been introduced by a French
?ompany on the Venezuelan island of
Margarita, which some (lay may re
sult in shipment of pearls from that
island to New York, though just now
the Venezuelan merchants, not feeling
on too good terms with the United
States, say that the Paris market gives
better results. The Frenchmen use
divers and diving apparatus, and as
the divers can select the larger oys
ters and leave the smaller undis
turbed, to grow and increase in value,
great results are expected from the en
terprise. This company bought the
concession from a Venezuelan. and

There has been extraordinary ac
tivity on the islqnd lately on account
of the rise in the value of pearls, and
buyers have flocked there from va
rious parts of the world. The value of
the Margarita pearl industry is about
$600,000 a year.
Four hundred sailboats are used by
the natives in the fisheries of Marga
rita and its .neighboring islands of
Coche and Cubagua.
The principal beds arc at El Tirano,
northeast, and Macano, northwest of
Margarita. Two thousand men find
constant employment in this trade.
The native fishers use metal scoops,
which are dragged over the oyster
beds, and when filled, brought to the
surface, where the shells are opened
and carefully examined. The boats
in use are from 3 to 15 tons, and pay
to the Venezuelan authorities $2.90
each for permits to fish.
The pearls are flue in quality, beau
tiful in lustre and run from white to
yellow, and occasionally a black one,
priceless in vable, is brought to the
surface. One white pearl of large size
and good quality avas sold in Marga
rita recently for $1700. The shell of
the oyster is not of much commercial
value, being too thin for the manu
facture of buttons and other fancy ar
ticles, such as are made from the Ori
ental pearl shell, due to the short life
of this pearl oyster, eight years being
about the average. Pearls from dead
oysters have little value, as they lose
The pearls of Margarita have been
known to white men since the discov
ery of the island by Columbus and his
followers. It was on this island, and
on the mainland adjoining that the
Spaniards found the natives decked
with pearls, and history says that
these pearls were one of the prime
causes of trouble among the adventur
ers who first visited and settled on
How I~ank TeI!er Pay Che('kt.
One of the best known handwriting

"Popularly, banks are supposed to
pay checks according to signatures.
As a matter of fact, most tellers pay
on the face of the man to whose or
der the check is drawn. If you don't
believe this, wait till a paying teller
gets on the stand and have him asked
if he would cash on hand a check
payable to bearer. If he paid it it
would be purely on his judgment of
the signature, but when tellers called
into' court are asked that question
they crawfish every time. How can a
man who sees the hundreds of thou
sands of signatures a day tell in the
little time he has the difference be
tween a clever forgery and genuine
writing? If he is assured of the iden.
tity of the payee and the signature
represents a good account, he will pay
without more than a glance at the
drawer's name. You could prove this
in another way if you could get from
the bank the records of the checks
that are paid without signatures, es
pecially of checks of special form or
"I leponstrated my proposition to
the president of one of the largest
banks in the City. I told him that I
would forge his name to a check-I
have some skill at imitation as well
as at deciphering imitation-and if he
would have me identified one of his
own tellers wou'!d honor it. He told
me I could have all the money I could
draw out that way. I forged the
check in his presence, he provided
me with an identifier and in 10 min
utes I was back with the money the
check called for. The president called
in the teller and I had to intercede
or the man would have lost his job.

Artists, writers and musicians at

the painter, is president. The object
of the club is to devise and popular
ize a dress for men which, while be
ing equally comfortable, will be more
artistic than that now worn in every
The committee appointed for this
purpose has submitted designs of a
new dress, which have been approved.
The short coat or jacket is a modified
form of the uniform worn by a Hus
ear regiment of Germany. It is tight
at the waist and indicates the grace
ful curve of the spinal column by
braids on the back.
The trousers are also tight fitting,
loosening somewhat below the knee,
and have buttons on the sides of the
legs. The waistcoat is likewise a re
minder of the military style and
shows off to great advantage the manly
chest of the wearer.
These garments are to be manufac
tured of gay colored cloths, varied in
tones, the idea being to give the por
trait painters a relief from the dull
I monotony of the present colors. The
club has written to artists all over
Europe soliciting further designs.

chauffeur to describe or identify the
driver or conductor of an automobile.
Its proper meaning is the equivalent
of 'fireman' or 'stoker,' in English, and
is therefore not at all applicable to
the use to which it is put in connec
tion with the new vehicle. Either
'driver' or 'conductor' is a shorter,
simpler and better descriptive term.
But, "whether it be so or not, down

in using it!"
