Preelident's Parable On the Abuse of
President Roosevelt is said to chafe
occasionally under the praise heaped
. upon him for his "independence,"
which some persons, he asserts, seem
to think is without social, ethical or
political limitations.- A politician who
once approached him to urge the Pres
ident's aid in a very radical measure
harped upon the fact that the people
would stand for the results out of
Ssheer admiration for his "indepen
'.You appear to think," replied
Roosevelt, "that a man can be unre
strictedly independent in every depart
ment of life. So do many others I
meet from day to day. Somehow, they
always remins me of a certain am
itious Celt, who thinking personal in
dependence a grand and glorious thing,
determined to stamp his belief on the
Santire world. He selected the crowded
public square in his native town for
the demonstration, stepped to the mid
dle, threw hat and coat violently to the
ground and, as he jumped on them,
Soared that all might hear:
."'Eveybody! Everybody!'
"'he throng surged to where he
stood, attracted by the shouts and
eagerly curious to learn the reason.
When he had made himself the center
of attraction, he went on to declare
"'Everybody!' he roared again
'Everybody can go to the devil!'"

Now They Compare With Those of
Some Forty' Years Ago.
Jay Cooke, one of the greatest of
Ameriran financiers, negotiated near
ly all of the immense loans issued by
the United States government during
the civil war. The banking firm of
which he was the head handled over
$2,000,000,000 for the government, and
its profits, it is said, did not exceed
$200,000. What would have been J. P.
Morgan's profits if that astute finan
cier had been engaged by the govern
ment to float a series of loans amount
ing to $2,000,000,000? It has been
stated that Mr. Morgan received about
$100,000,000 for financing the United
States Steel Corporation with a capita'
of about $1,400,000.000. In another tran
saction his profit on a $200,000,00(
transaction was estimated at $10,000.
000. Either Mr. Morgan has cause tc
be astounded at Mr. Cooke's modera
tion or Mr. Cooke would be justified it
expressing astonishment at the vert
high value which Mr. Morgan place,
upon his services. If Mr. Morgan hat
financed the steel company at the
same rates at which Mr. Cooke han
dled the government's loans during the
civil war he would have received only
$140,000 for his share in the transac
tion. On the other hand, if the gov
ernment had paid Mr. Cooke as hand
somely for his services as Mr. Morgan
is reported to have been paid by the
steel company, Mr. Cooke would have
netted nearly $150,000,000.
Important Historical Discoveries Be
ing Made There.
Discoveries of the first importance
to the students of the evidences of
Christianity and to archiaeologists are
confidently looked for from the con
tinued exploration of the Catacombs
of Rome. Of the forty-five cemeterft
known to have existed, only five have
been made accessible to visitors. The
principal catacombs. those on the Ap
pia, Nomentana, Salaria and Ardea
tina, although epen, are not yet thor
oughly explored. The.o I being of vol
canic origin, is tp asft to be utilized
for building purposes, but it is of suf
ficient consistency to enable excava
tions to be prosecuted without the aid
of supports. Until the ninth century
the catacombs were places of pilgrim
age, but from then until the nine
teenth they were neglected. The en
trances became blocked and almost
all the sites were lost sight of. It is
computed that fully 6,000,000 of bodies
lie buried in the Roman catacombs, or
more than double the number that are
interred in the catacombs of Paris.
The most ancient of all known cata
combs are those of the Theban kings,
which are over 4,000 years old.
150,000 Screws to the Pound.
The minuteness of some of the
screws made in a watch factory may
be measured by the statement that it
takes nearly 150,000 of a certain kind
to weigh a pound. Under the micro
scope they appear in their true charac
ter-perfectly finished bolts. The
pivot of the balance wheel is only
one two-hundredths of- an inch in
diameter, and the gauge with which
pivots are classified measures to the
ten- thousandth part of an inch. Each
jewel hole into which a pivot fits is
about one five-th--usandth of an inch
larger than the pivot to permit suiff,
ctent play. The finest screw for ,
small-sized watch has a thread of 2l(;
to the inch and weighs one one-hun
dred and tairty thousandths of a
pound. Jewel slabs of sapphire, ruby
cr garnet are first sawed into slabs
one-fiftieth of an inch thick, and are
shellacked to plates so that they mas
be surfaced. Then the individual
jewels are sawn or broken off. drilled
through the center, and a depression
made in the convex side for an oil
(up. A pallet jewel weighs one one
hundredth and fifey-thousandths of a
pound: a roller jewel a little more
than one two-hundred and fifty-six
thousandths. The largest round hair
Fpring stud is four-hundredths of an
inch in diameter and albout nine-hun
dredths of an inch in length.

wealth, tells a story of a negro planta
V tion owner in Bouth Carolina who, like
3 some other black cotton-growers In
i his district, had not always been get
r ting a fair deal when he took his crop
to a particular warehouse. where the
custom was to make calculations like
the following in quick, imprele, bus
iness-like tones:
"Four hundred pounds cotton at 8
cents-six-teen dollars! Cashier.
give Sambo six-teen dollars!"
The grower wondered why although
getting a fair price per pound for his
cotton, a large crop had such small
monetary returns when all gathered
and shipped. An itinerant pedler sold
him a "lightning calculator" in the
form of some computed examples of
multiplication often employed in ev
eryday commerce- and the negro mas
tered its principles. When next he
delivered a Icad, he heard:
'tour hundred pounds cotton at 8
cents- twen-ty-four dollars! Cash
ler, give Sambo twen-ty-four dollars!"
But Sambo had consulted his tables,
and profested
"Look-a-heah. sah! I find by this
kalkilator dat it 'mounts to f't'-eight
dollars, sah!"
The weigher strode forward, pulled
the "calculator" from the darkey's
hand, examined it for a moment, and
then, with a lock of disgust, threw it
in a corner, exclaiming:
"You ought to be ashamed. Sambo-
ashamed! That's last year's calcula
tor, and is no good now!'
Turkeys as Star Witnesses.
A modern Solomon's judgment, ap
proved by a flock of turkeys, after the
decision had been referred for final
adjudication to the latter, has just
come from Lower Providence town
ship. The flock of birds in question
had strayed from their own farm
home, as turkeys will, and had been
cooped up by the distant neighbor on
whose fence rails they roosted.
A warrant, a trial before a justice
of the peace and a proposition from
the real owner to let the birds settle
the question for themselves, prevailed.
"I'll forfeit the lot if they don't go
home," proposed the owner.
"And so you shall,"' responded the
Justice. 'Turn them loose."
,The liberated turkeys, as if they
appreciated the weight of their new
legal responsibility, went in a bee
line to their home roosts, and judg
ment was entered for the plaintiff.
