-v. & il INSULTS TO ROYALTY. lim «f th» Things That C*Mtitut* L«M Majesty In England. Many people think that I eae majesty --giving Insult to royalty—la not a crime In Great Britain. The Bnclteh statute books, however, contain many penalties for auch offenses. Placing a postage stamp on a letter upside down Is a punishable offense, aa Is also the defacement of a coin bear ing the royal Image. This Is Insulting the king's effigy. Private individuals may not raise the loyal atandard over their dwellings. This is the emblem of the regal au thority to be displayed only where the king Is present While an agitator may talk against royalty in the abstract as much as be choosea, contemptuous or insulting personal references to the reigning sov ereign opens the offender to a heavy fine and Imprisonment The slightest slap upon the face of the king or queen—or any other part of the anatomy, for that matter—is punishable with the death penalty. In the reign of Queen Victoria a Lieuten ant Page struck her across the face with bis cane. He was sentenced to death, but the queen commuted his sentence. It is likewise a crime to bring the uniform of the sovereign into con tempt To garb a low comedian or a villain of the stage in a discarded uni form of the army or the navy is suf ficient to bring heavy censure from the government For this reason theatrical managers usually see to it that the uniforms worn are not exactly copies of the real things. ARTIFICIAL LIGHT. The Most Brilliant Illumination Is Not Always the Best A writer In an engineering maga zine offers some disconcerting informa tion on.tbe subject of Illumination, dis concerting because the reader will probably find that he has been, inno cently enough, following a course of procedure there described as injurious. For instance, in the case of eye strain he may have felt that even the rt|ni light by which he worked was too strong, and so turned down the light thus increasing the difficulty, or, what is more likely to be the case, when the strain has been caused by too brilliant illumination he fancies that what is needed is stronger light and so increases it Overstrain from too bright a light is said to manifest itself by an itching sensation in the eyeballs, with the tendency to rub the eyes for relief. The proper course, then, is to see that the light is more perfectly diffused or softened and that it falls in the right direction. After these precautions have been taken it is worth while to try a smaller quantity of light this trial to continue long enough in time for the eyes to become fully adjusted to the change. The value of illumina tion is not to be judged by the appar ent brightness of the lights when look ed at directly—the brighter the light the better—but by the effect on the ob ject to be looked at and the most de sirable effect so far as the eyes are concerned, 1s not always produced by the most brilliant lights.—Indianapolis Star. Set the Pate. Toung Mabel had a habit when soup was served at the table of mushing her crackers or bread in it until it jpras a great mess. Her mother made many efforts to have her correct this strictly primeval habit One day there was to be company at the table, and the mother said: "Now, Mabel, Mrs. Brown is to dine with us tonight and I want you to act at the table just as nicely as she does. Please don't 'mush' your soup." Mabel promised faithfully to follow the example set by Mrs. Brown, and the dinner opened with every promise of a fine time. However, Mabel was using a pair of very sharp eyes on Mrs. Brown and In an Instant blurted forth at the top of her voice: "Oh, mamma, Mrs. Brown is 'mush ing!' May U" Had Tried Electricity. A benevolent gentleman attempted to converse with the motherly old lady who sat next to him in the railway carriage. He discovered that she was very deaf, and the conversation was established by shouting. "You are very deaf, aren't you, mad am?" ultimately bellowed he of the benevolence. "I am so," was the reply, "and haven't been able to do a thing for it." "Have you ever tried electricity?" shouted the kind hearted man. "Yes," she said, nodding vigorously, "I was struck by lightning last sum mer."—London Graphic. How 8h« Felt. Stella—So you kissed the young par •on in the dark hall, thinking it was your brother?

More over. be knew precisely the right mo ment to apply It to qatcken the apark of divine energy which smolders In every man, although the ashes of fa tigue and failure may cover ita light temporarily. A French soldier carried a dispatch to Napoleon. 4mmt as he delivered It Into the handa of the emperor his speut horse dropped dead. Napoleon .wrote an answer to the dispatch, then, dismounting from his own horse, be handed the bridle to the soldier. "Take this horse and ride back, com rade," he said. "Nay. sire," stammered the soldier, gazing at the blooded horse and its trappings. "It is too magnificent anil grand for me. a common soldier." "Take it!" commanded Napoleon "There Is nothing too grand and mag nlficent for a soldier of France." The soldier mounted and rode away on his perilous business, ready and willing, and Napoleon's wordB. repeat ed through the ranks and columns of his army, gave to bis tired troops, fresh inspiration and energy. "Notb ing too grand and magnificent for a soldier of France!" they said, and the thought that they were worthy of the best inspired them to the mighty deeds which followed. WIFELY ORDERS. Two Men Obeyed Them, but the Third Man Balked. "Three men sat rather late at the club one ntght," satd the man who is responsible for the story. "As they were separating they discussed a little nervously the receptions that awaited them at their wives' hands and agreed that he who didn't do what his wife told him ob getting home should have to treat the others to a turkey dinner The first man after reaching his house stumbled about the dark bedroom till he kicked the cat The cat squalled, and the man's wife, raising her head from the pillow, moaned, 'Well, go on kill the poor cat and have done with it.' The man frowned and muttered to himself, 'It is a case of kill the cat or pay for the. dinner.' So he killed the cat. "The second man on his arrival could not find any matches. As he looked for some in the drawing room he bumped against the piano, and his wife complained, 'Why don't you break the piano, careless?' Determined not to lose his bet, the man got a hatchet, and the sound of crashing blows soon filled the bouse. "The third man, getting home, stum bled on the way upstairs. His wife screamed angrily. 'Go on, fall down stairs and break your neck, do!' 'Not me.' said the third man after a mo ment's thought. 'I'll pay for the turkey dinner.' "—Chicago News. A Merchant's Memory. Among the characteristics which made for the success of Mr. A. T. Stewart the great New York mer chant says Richard Lathers in his Reminiscences," was an extraordina ry memory for the details of his vast business. One day as Mr. and Mrs. Lathers were leaving the store Mr. Stewart ac costed them at the door. "I hope, Mrs. Lathers, you have found what you want," be said. •No, Mr. Stewart," she replied. "1 want a very plain brussels carpet for a small library, a light color with a small blue figure. You have a great variety, but nothing just like that." "I am quite sure we have that exact description," he said, and, turning to a clerk, added: "Go to the third floor and get out from the last invoice of carpets No. 2206. I think the style and pattern will just suit Mrs. Lath ers." To the amazement of the shopper it proved to be the very thing she was looking for. Consider the Birds of the Air.

Where Was It—In Mashonaland, South Arabia or India? One of the most interesting and im portant questions concerning Biblical sites perpetually Invites research and persistently evades solution. "Where la the land of Ophir?" Dr. Karl Pe ters at a public iheeting in Berlin de clared emphatically that this famous Biblical region is located between the Zambezi and Limpopo rivers. He told his German audience how he has dis covered many shafts of ancient gold mines, 500 temples, fortifications and other ruins of Phoenician origin. Dr. Peters affirms that coins unearthed in Mashonaland belong undoubtedly to the time of King Solomon. His opin ion is that no other part of Africa could have exported the ivory, silver and precious stones which are record ed in the Bible as coming from Ophir. Against this theory, founded as It undoubtedly is on very plausible evi dence, Bible students are still likely to maintain, on the testimony of Gene sis x. 29, that Ophir was a section of South Arabia. Here down to the time of Ezekiel the Phoenicians still land ed to procure gold and gems with which those famous sailors and mer chants of the ancient world traded in many countries distant from their Syri an shores. Many erudite writers have attempt ed to identify Sofala, on the east coast of Africa, with Ophir. while yet oth ers have located it in India. One of the most learned essays written on the subject Is from the pen of Professor Hommel. who argued that the ancient land of gold was Arabia Felix.—Hom lletlc Review. A Man to Be Envied.

It's a pretty comfortable berth." Several hours later the hotel clerk reached for his coat and hat As he left the office he turned to a comrade: 'Say, Ned. can you let me have $10 till the first?
