chlhlrtu five tiiltiuto to think of the
luont beautiful thjnr they ivep saw,
ud at the end of that time recorded
their answers. Tho huniau dement
was entirely lnred, nut one of them
referring to any beautiful face.
Five rtilhlreu mentioned the inr n
and tai (one Btlpulatlng that it must
be the full moon), two the tun, and om
the Kettln sun. Two cliiwo Ilouo-,
two rertuin bcenory, two birds, and

moat approved tho rain wished after
wards to change it for a house with
snow dropping from it, a little, street
In front, and a yostofllce at the end.

next day preferred Hadd-m Hall.
Another boy, who at first suggest d a

however, that It was runniug along in
tho sunshine) was wlthdrawu for a
country scene he remembered, where
there was a stream with golden brack
en and tho sun shining upon It.
The children who were thus interro
gated were not city Arabs, but came
from well-to-do homes. Yet one of
them actually said that the most beau
tiful thing she had ever seen was a
little toy house, "where a woman was
sitting by the window and a man com
Ing up to the door; the woman
wouldn't lot the man In because ho
was drunk."
A little boy who had been taken to
many beautiful places most preferred
a glass ball, which, when shaken, pro
duced the appcaranc of a snowstorm
Inside It; and a girl, who had lived for
three years under tho shadow of one
of our noblest cathedrals, set In the
first place a monkey at the Zoo.
rECCUAnrriES of ihsctcatio:
Many of the errors In books and pa
pers arise from mistakes in punetua
tion. A writer in a ladles' Journal
states that "it has become quite the
fashion of late for Lid.es to tako their
tea In their hata and gloves." The la
dies suffered more severely at tho
hands of a provincial reporter who,
describing tho costumes at a reception
had Intended to say that "Mrs. B. woro
nothing In the nature of a dress that
was remarkable." lie was somewhat
surprised the next day when he opened
the nancr and read: "Mrs. B. wore
nothlne in the nature of a dress. That
was remarkable."
A London paper reported on one oc
caslon the capture in "mid-channel of
a large man-eating shark." A provln
cial journal, copying the paragrapl
but less careful about the punotuatlou,
gave a different version of the inci
dent: "A large man, eating shark, was
captured in mid-channel."
ITerbert Spencer once wrote,
"Whales are not fish because they pos
se-ss fins and a fish-like tall"; but what
tho nubile read was: "Whales are not
fish, because they possess fins and
figh-llke tall," which truly is a most re
markable reason why whales are not
But perhaps the most amusing in
stance of the ludicrous effect1
wrong punctuation ia afforded In the
following description of tho Jubilee
procession, which appeared In an East
Anglian weekly paper: "Next came
Lord Roberts riding. On a grey Arab
steed wearlug a splendid scarlet uni
form, covered with medals on his head
a field-marshal's hat with plumes
his hand, the baton of a field-marshal
on his ragged feature; a smile of pleas
ure aa he acknowledged the thunderln
cheers of the crowd."

For example, a delay of twenty-four
hours In landing the mall-bags at Ade
laide after a Journey from Hrlndlsl or
Naples means a fine of 100, or 1 per
hour, and the penalty Is even heavier
for delay between Knlaud and Cana
da or China; 100 for every twelve
hours late Is equal to about S per
hour. The tardy delivery at Brind.si
of malls coming from the East Indies
or from China is punished by a flue of
200 per twelve hours namely, 17
per hour late.
On tha Holyhead-Kingston sea ser
vice th deduction for delay hi stated
at 1 14s. per minute; this means 102
for one hour. For tha dally trip be
tween Strorue Ferry and Storuoway n
milder phrase is used: "20 for undue
delay or deviation from course" is the
wording, and It Is ono which admits
of conveniently elastic interpretation.
