"Tee longer I live," observed toe
«ashler of a bank down town, "tat
more I realize the Importance of little
things. Here is a case in point, V*
aontiuued, referring to a letter he just
fead received. "A few weeks ago I
had two callers in my officer-on* an
Meltable, elderly man, a big depositor,
and the other the president of a man
ufacturing cocern and the writer of
this letter. This manufacturer left,
and soon afterward tho excitable man
discovered that some one had taken
his hut. He stormed about the p!ac«
until one of the clerks suggested that
perhaps the manufacturer had take*
It by mistake. The excitable man de
manded his address and started ot*
to hunt him down and give him
ple©e of his mind.'
"The other day I read a letter from
the manufacturing concern and was
astonished to see among the names
of its officers that of my excitable
caller as vice president. My curiosity
was aroused and I made some 1»
qulrles. Now I laarn that the excit
able man was so pleasantly received
when he called for his hat that his
anger cooled at once. Then he got
to talking about the manufacturer's
business and the money he was mak
ing. A few days later he Invested
heavily in the concern and was "elect

TWENTY YEARS IN KOREA.
Wife of American Minister Allen Hat
Had Long Stay There*
Mrs. Horace N. Alien, wife of the
American minister to Korea, has lived
for nearly twenty years In that sec*
tton of tho orient, which Is now so
prominently before the world Mrs.
Allen was graduated from Ohio Wes
leyan university at Delaware, O. (Mr.
Allen's home), with her husband, and
shortly after went to the far east with
him when he first became interested
In the orient as medical missionary
for the Presbyterian church in China.
This was in 1884, five years before
the legation was established. She
was related to the late President
Hayes, Mr. Allen being a descendant
of Ethan Allen of Tlconderoga fame.
They had two sons, one of whom was
born in Korea, the other in China.
Where Our Presidents Are Buried.
The strangest thing, perhaps, In ths
history of Washington Is that not one
of the dead presidents of the republic
Is burled there. The majority of them
sleep In town or city cemeteries near
the homes from which they came to
the White House. The fact that none
of the tombs of tbe presidents is in
Washington is explicable when It Is
considered that none of them hav«
made their homes in Washington
after going out of office.
Another strange fact la that onl)
two cemeteries hold the bodies of
more than one of the presidents. John
Adams and John Quincy Adams both
lie In the Congregational burying
ground In Quincy, Mass., and Tyler
and Monroe lie In Hollywood ceme
tery, In Richmond. Five of the presi
dents were burled in Virginia, four
each in Ohio and New York, three In
Tennessee, two in Massachusetts, and
ont» each in New Hampshire, Ken

A Cam Cutter Who Got Rlefct
Mot so very long ago there lived In
undon» Bog., a cutter of corns. Ev
erybody knew fclm—old Wolff, the
Tew. He did not aapira to the title of
chiropodist—simply a cutter of corn*
More than a thouaawd client* paid
blm their three guineas a year. One
«f them was an archbishop who, while
he submitted a painful corn to tho
razor, plied his persuasive tonguo
upon the cutter. Here was a Jew to
be converted. "Sir, if you will go on
talking, I shall cut you," was the only
response of Shyiock. "If I make you
bleed, you'll die," was another grim
way be had of silencing clients. In
his dingy old room, patronized by all
the lions of the Stock Exchange, and
everybody who was anybody with a
corn, he piled up a fortune of over six
figures, and was still coining money
•tp to the date of his death at the age

ber of cells, the walls of which are
brown. In the spring and summer
these cells are all filled with fluid,
nctored with minute grains of red,
yellow and ether pigments, which,
nixed together, appear green. Ia the
autumn, through the eeld, oxidation
and other changes take place in the
'.eaf cells, destroying mere or less
rapidly certain of the color elements.
As soon as one of then* elements is
gone the leaf no longer appears a

the red element is left the leaf is red
when the yellow alone remains the
leaf Is yellow, and when all the color
ing matter aas gone the leaf is brown.
Frost is not the solr cause of the
changes of color, but it is an import*
ant cause. The more gradual th#
changes of temperature from summef

Novel Court Decision.
During the severe earthquake in
Guatemala, April 19, 1902, a certain
block of buildings was destroyed. It
was insured against fire, but not, as
was stipulated in the policy, against
lire occasioned by an earthquake, and
In this case the fire which destroyed
the buildings and the shock were al
most simultaneous. The owners of
the property claimed that its destruc
tion was caused by the overthrowing of
a lamp immediately before the earth
tremors, and thus in the end the legal
decision was made to hinge on the
exact time when various cities on
the line of movement were wrecked.
