From a small beginning we have grown until our fac tories now cover many acres. Many of our machines sold forty to fifty years ago are still giving their users faithful service. Can anything be more con vincing of their merits and durability? Did you ever hear of any other machine with such a record? Note a few of the many superior points of the Wheeler & Wilson yA ft Sewing Machine RUiu The Rotary Hook displaces the old, out-of-date, unmechanical and trouble some shuttle. The Frictionless ball bearings and per fect mechanical construction enable it to be operated with one-third less exertion than is required by ordinary machines. It sews three yards of goods while a shuttle machine sews two. It makes the most elastic and most, perfect stitch whether sewing light or heavy goods. With our superior attachments the greatest variety of work is possible.

In October, 1887, the sacred bo tree, at that time supposed to be the oldest living vegetable monument on the earth's surface, was uprooted and de stroyed by a cyclone which swept over the island of Ceylon. The oldest writ ten description of the sacred bo tree now in existence is that by the cele brated Chinese historian, Fa Hian, who visited the island and the sacred tree In the year 414 A. D. According to this learned Chinaman, the tree was at that time 702 years old, having been planted in the year 288 before our era by King Devinlpiatissa. As soon as it was known through out the island that the tree had been destroyed by the fury of the elements great crowds of mourners gathered around Its "sacred remains" and held regular funeral services for two or three weeks. After the season of mourning was over the tree was cut into proper lengths, each piece wrapped separately in white cloth and cremated with the same funeral rites which would have been given a mem ber of the royal family. So perished the sacred bo tree, one of the most wonderful natural growths known to the world—a tree which had been worshiped daily, one might al most say 'hourly. for 2.175 years. THE CHOICE OF MATES. Artificial Matrimonial Selection Hns Given Poor Results*. No one knows what type will be the best for survival in an unknown future environment. We often see the ex tinction of families of parents whom any physician would have pronounced ideal, but their children lacked resist ance to the invasion of pathogenic or ganisms or there was some other de fect which made them easy targets for climatic causes of physical decay. On the other hand, we quite often find that parents below par physically have line families. The curious unions which take place must be the result of laws such as we find in every biologic phenomenon. Man has the same in stinct found in lower animals to select a mate who is more or less different from himself. Should like types mate, their com mon characteristics may be so exag gerated as to be harmful and the line perish. It is an instinct of those of great intelligence to marry those of less than the average, for the offspring revert to the better average. It Is very evident that if we try to improve the race intellectually by the marriage of like types we will violate the natural law upon which our existence is based. Artificial matrimonial selection has been tried, though the results were dis astrous.—American Medicine. HIS "KINGSMAN." The Silk Neckerchief Worn by the London Costermonger. Speaking of London costermongers, Mayhew says: "The man who does not wear his silk neckerchief—his 'klngsman,' as it Is called—is known to be in desperate circumstances." The neckerchief is more prized than any other item of his attire and a coster's caste is at stake If his klngsman be not of the most approved pattern. This habit is derived from the gypsies and doubtless dates from some long forgotten oriental custom. It is very curious that a taste for similar colors prevails among the Hindoos, gypsies and~eosterinongers. Red and yellow are the favorite colors and the oldest. Of these, the coster chooses his plush waistcoat and his klngsman, the gypsy his breeches and his wife her shawl and gown the Hindoo his robe and turban. If a fight occurs, the favorite colored ar ticle of dress receives the greatest care. The pugilistic coster ties his klngsman round his waist or his leg, where, by the rule of the ring, It is comparatively safe. London Tele graph. The Origin of Grocer. Grocer appears in Holinshed's Chron icle, 1580, as "grosser," and in other mediaeval records it is sometimes written "engrosser," and was applied to the splcers and pepperers who were wholesale dealers in various spices— that is, who dealt en gros—in large quantities, as distinguished from "re grators," who were retail dealers. The Grocers' company first adopted the word grocer In 1373, when the spicers and pepperers allied themselves into a single corporation.—London Express. Bad Writer With a Good Memory* HarVey Waters, an expert on patent cases, had occasion to write Bufus Choate on some important question, and when he received the reply was unable to read a word of it, so took the missive to Mr. Choate and aBked him what be had written. Mr. Choate replied: "I never can read my writ ing after the ink is dry, but if you tell me what it is about I will tell yon what I have written." And he did. The Table* Turned.

THE HOTEL CHILD, Dmgen That Ileaet the taeklMi Off spring of Reatleaa Parent*. It Is not the material aids to cfz-. Istence which are the bane of the hotel child it is the mental and spiritual at titude accompanying this life which is to be deprecated. It destroys a democratic spirit through emphasizing the difference between the servant and the served, It exaggerates the power of money, fosters a spirit of depend ence and unfits the pampered Individ ual for any other kind of life, and, worst of all, in a child so brought up there can be no understanding or love of home. There may be some future for the child who knows nothing of art, some function for the one to whom literature makes no appeal and who is not sensitive to music, but there is no place in the state for the man who has neither initiative, self reliance, patriot1 ism nor love of homo.

In a muriiei' trial before a western court the prisoner was able to account for the whole of his time e.\ce live minutes on the evening when the crime was committed. His counsel argr.eu that it was impossible for liim to have killed the man under the circumstances in so brief it period, and on that plea largely based his defense, the other testimony being strongly against his client. When the prosecuting attorney re plied, he said: "IIow long a time really is five minutes? Let us see. Will his honor command absolute silence in the courtroom for that space?" The judge graciously complied. There was a clock on the wall. Every eye in the courtroom was fixed upou it as the pendulum ticked oft' the seconds. There was a breathless silence. We all know how time which' is waited for creeps and halts and at last does not seem to move at all. The keen witted counsel waited until the tired audience gave a sigh of relief at the close of the period, and then asked quietly: "Could he not have struck one fatal blow in all that time?" The prisoner was found guilty, and, as It was proved afterward, justly. A book on Stevenson tells of a speech he made at a gathering of Scotchmen in Samoa. He said: "I cannot say why we are proud to be Scotsmen, but the fact remains that we are. It is not that our land Is sunny like these trop ical isles, and its climate is not even lovely. Scotland's history contains lit tle that is not disgusting to people of humane feelings. That long brawl which is called Scottish history con tains scarcely one object that Scots have patience with." The address drew tears to the eyes of a German who had gone to the meeting violently preju diced against Stevenson. No sooner had the speaker finished than the meet ing proceeded to clasp hands and sing "Auld Lang Syne." Mortgage Sale.
