It Probably Changed tbe History of the Whole Unman Race. The most striking case in history of the importance of trifles is furnished by the story of Musa, the leader of the Moslem host which won from Christen dom in three and a half years domin ions which it took the soldiers of the cross twenty generations to win back. He had a red beard. This was a trifle. Musa, though a very great general, was a very vain man, and he dyed his beard black. This was another trifle. One of his captains chaffed him on the subject, and Musa forthwith had him stripped and scourged. For this, at the very height of his conquering ca reer, Musa was recalled by the calipb and disgraced. This made it impos sible for him to command the Moslem army at the battle of Tours, on the Is sue of which, as all historians agree, the destinies of Europe and perhaps of the whole human race depended. It is almost certain that if the genius of Musa had replaced the incompetence of the half dozen tribal leaders whose dissensions made victory impossible the forces *>f Islam would have joined hands from the west to the east and inclosed Europe in their grasp.—Lon don Standard. The First Knitting Machine. Historic mention of band knitting is first found in the books of the time of Queen Elizabeth, though it is known that it was one cj the arts of the Pom peiians. The first machine for knitting was the invention of one William Lee, who made application for a patent in England in 1589. On being refused a patent by the English authorities he forthwith departed for France and soon afterward set up a large factory at Rouen. The Lee machine, which re main_.l the same as it was 200 years before, was introduced in the colonies during the Revolutionary war. A sharp Yankee improved on it and set up the first United States stocking factory at Cohoes, N. Y., in 1832. The American Chameleon. The American chameleon, a small liz ard (Anolls carolinensis), inhabits vari ous parts of the southern United States. The little animal has the remarkable habit of quickly and completely chang ing its colorß, varying from brown to yellow or pale green. Its food consists of insects. The little animal is perfect ly harmless to higher forms of life, is often kept as a pet and has been worn attached to a chain as an ornament The toes are provided with adhesive pads, which enable the lizard to run upon smooth vertical surfaces. — St. Nicholas. Romance of a Sons. "Yes, the Die Is Cast" has a roman tic history. It was, written by Colonel Paul Pestel of the Russian army, who, with others, conspired against the Rus sian government in 1826. The plot was discovered, he was arrested, imprison ed, tried and on July 11, 1826, was hanged. During the Interval between his trial and execution he composed the words and music of this song and with a bit of iron scratched them on the wail of his cell, where the song was found some years after his death. Heart and Lnngi. The action of the heart, lungs and di gestive system is involuntary, for the reason that it is indispensable to life and must be carried on under all cir cumstances. If a man had to think of his heart or had to remember that he must breathe or that his food must di gest he would have no time to do any thing else, and if by chance he should forget to keep his heart going or his lungs in operation he would fall dead on the spot.

THROUGH CAR DAILY TO WALLA WALLA It Was Established February 1 and Has Shown Big Increase in Business. The Northern Pacific and Washing ton & Columbia R'ver Railway com panies have established a through freight service between Seattle and Walla Walla, enabling the Seattle job bers to compete with the merchants of Portland. Protest was made sometime ago by the Seattle wholesalers that the freight service between that city and Walla Walla was unsatisfactory. It was operated only wice a week, and there was no through service, Pasco being made the distributing point. From Pasco on to Walla Walla th>; freight was handled from the same cars and distributed to the different stations. The new service, which was estab lished February 1, makes about 48 hours difference in the time of ship ping from Seattle to Walla Walla. The same service also applies to Dayton and Pendleton, and the jobbers have already commenced to increase the trade in this section. The through freight car for Walla Walla leaves Seattle on No. 7 every night and comes through direct, without stop. The jobbers petitioned the Northern Pacific about four weeks ago to estab lish such a service, setting forth that it was the intention to invade the Walla Walla territory as soon as ade quate means of transportation were provided. It is stated at the local traffic office* of the Northern Pacific that the busi ness has already commenced to show an increase. The service is pronounced by the Northern Pacific officials to be the best to the points affected ever operated by the Northern Pacific. Best Mattress on Earth WHY? Because it is made from pure silk floss, sometimes called capock, which is a vegetable product, therefore pure and sanitary in its natural state. Because it is felted into one bat by the only process known for silk floss. Weighs but 35 pounds, although it has the same bulk as 50 pounds of the finest felted cotton, thereby making it one-third lighter to handle and it is conse quently more elastic and is guaranteed to retain its elasticity longer than the best felted cotton. It is covered with finest heavy art tick and made with Imperial Stitched Roll Edge, thus insuring this mattress to retain its shape. ■* Are half the cost of the best curled hair but more sanitary and will retain better shape.
