Jer sey Cream Flour, a home product and guaranteed ASHAMED OF AN INFIRMITY Sailors, Particularly Amateur Ones, Seem to Look on Seasickness as a Crime. Here I must deal with a distressing subject, which It would be pleaaanter to ignore, but which my training in realism will not allow me to Ignore, writes Arnold Bennett in the Century Magazine. A certain shameful crime Is often committed on yachts, merchantmen and even men-of-war. It is notorious that Nelson committed this crime again and again, and that other admirals have copied his iniquity. Sailors, and par ticularly amateur sailors, would soon er be accused of any wickedness rath er than this. Charge them with cheat ing at cards, ruining innocent women, defrauding the government, and they will not blanch; but charge them with this offense, and they will blush, they will recriminate, and they will He dis gracefully against all evidence; they cannot Bit still under the mere sus picion of it I have, known a yachtsman, an ex pert, a member of an exceedingly crack club, suddenly shift his course shoreward In circumstances not de void of danger. "What are yon about?" was the af frighted question. He replied: "I'm going to beach her. If I don't, I shall be sick, and I won't be sick aboard this yacht" Such is the astounding influence of convention, which has transformed Into a crime a misfortune over which the victim has no control whatever. PRIZE FOR THE SCIENTIST In the Technical World magazine We read that a skull was found lately near Los Angeles that Is probably sev eral thousand years old. There is a bed of pitch Just outside the city which somebody says is like a 30-acre sheet of tangle-foot fly paper, ranging from six Inches to several feet In depth. Even today Jlttle wild crea tures rabbits, birds or gophers be come entangled in the pitch and die there, and this has been going on thousands of years, probably. , If a bird flies down close enough to the asphaltum to be trapped, so the monsters of long ago were caught and held .there. The quality of the ma terial is such that it preserves every thing that is burled there, and skele tons have been found in perfect condi tion. The skeleton of the saber-toothed ti ger with the long curved teeth that gave it the name was found here,, the giant sloth, a camel, a great wolf, a small antelope and a huge bird of prey called the teratornls. The latter was found near the skull just discovered, and because scientists know that the bird became extinct many thousands of years ago, they can Judge some thing of the age of the Bkull. The skull Is smaller and flatter at the back than a man's skull of today, and the find has excited the scientific student! of California. Perfumed Gloves. Queen Elizabeth, the "Good Queen Bess," was a monarch who showed a decided partiality for perfumes and was yery fastidious In their use. Ev ery article of her wearing apparel was scented, even to her gloves and shoes. The former were spoken of as being "sweet as damask roses." Lord Oxford, Edward Vere, was the first to present Elizabeth with perfumed gloves, which pleased her so much that she had her portrait painted in them. "Perfumed gloves then became the rage, but they were not always harmless. Sometimes they were poi soned and used as a means of getting rid of enemies. Beat Him to It. "Mary," said Mr. Thomas, when a silence fraught with unpleasant mean ing had followed his first altercation with his young wife. "Yes?" said Mary, interrogatively. "When a man and his wife have had a a difference," fiald Mr. Thomas, with" a Judicial air, "and each consid ers the other at fault, which of the two do you think should make the first advance towards reconciliation?" "The wiser of the two," said Mrs. Thomas, promptly; "and so, my dear, I'll say at once that I'm very sorry. Ditto. At an inauguration in Washington a couple of negro venders were ob served passing through a crowded street, one about ten feet in advance of the other, and both endeavoring to dispose of their wares to the passers by. The first negro would cry but: "Heah'B wheah yo get yo' clgahs and tobacco, candies, fruits and nuts." : Each time he called this out, the negro shuffling along in the rear would cry: "Same heab, same heah, same heah." Might Take One Precaution. . Owing to the shallowness of a cer tain harbor In England, the ships trad ing to and from It have to be built with a light draft. Commenting on this fact one day, a facetious Individ ual remarked to the skipper' ot a steamer: "I' reckon, captain, you would think nothing of running your nhip across a meadow on a dewy night?" "Nothing at all." came the reply; "though, to make sure, I might send a man ahead with a watering-can." DO YOU UPSET YOUR WATCH? If You Are Nervous, You Are Apt to "Get Its Goat," Though No body Knows Why. One of the troubles of watchmak ers is the man who gets on his watch's nerves. There are lots of customers on whom a good watch is wasted.' A good second-hand watch that has kept perfect time for other people will, with certain other people, go irregularly when it is not standing still. It is common knowledge in the. trade that watches are greatly Influenced by their owners. Nobody knows the reason, but two explanations have been offered. One is that watches are sensitive to per sonal magnetism, the natural electric ity that human beings contain in vary lng quantities. The other is that a watch may be disturbed by the vibrations set up' by a footstep which is heavier than the ordinary. The man who puts his heels down heavily usually needs to set the regulator toward slow to keep it from gaining. jDne of the mysterious sides of the subject is that watches seldom keep good time on people of nervous, ex citable temperaments. Pearson's Weekly. TWO MORALS TO THIS STORY There was once a man who thought that the business in which he was em ployed could get along without him. He would sometimes say: "Yes, I work hard and probably con tribute something to the profits; still I guess If you had to you could do without me, all right" And again: "A good many men think they are Indispensable. They get the idea that the wheels would stop if they weren't around. That's a wrong idea. I know a great deal better than that." One day the head of the firm sent for this young man and said: "You have given me an idea. 1 have heard you say so often that the business could get along without you, and it has had such a psychological t effect upon me that I am willing to take you at your word and save your wages. Here is your envelope. Good by." Morals Of which there are two, and you may take your choice. The first one is: Modesty is pretty likely to be its own reward. I . The second: It doesn't always pay to advertise. Life. Microbes Gather Moisture. According to the researches ot Messrs. Trillat and Fouassler, pub lished by the Academie des Sciences, microbes suspended in the air act as centers of condensation when the air is humid. The authors give evidence of the existence of microbian drops in the atmosphere and have studied their properties. One very interesting re sult Is that the sudden cooling of the atmosphere has the effect of transport ing the microbes and localizing them. In determinate regions. The cool I surfaces attract them from a distance! almost instantaneously, the smaller be- lng transported farther.- These new( ideas throw light on the genesis of cer tain epidemics, and may be useful in planning the sanitation of Inhabited places. Other Ways. Johannesburg has taken to calling itself the healthiest place on earth. It's so healthy, in fact, that the people , who live in it would go on doing so forever, if they did not commit suicide or get accidentally killed or poisoned. i At any rate, the sanitary people who congressed (here not long ago say Its , climate is the finest on earth, and that Its people possess more stamina to the square inch than any other place, which is just a variation, of course, on the old gag about brains. Still, between earthquakes, light ning storms and live wires, the place has its full share of excitements, and there are always heaps of ways of getting killed besides dying from dis ease. Those Sacred Shells. The clever priests of China often Insert tiny images of Buddha within ! the shells of a living oyster, which are left undisturbed for about a year. At the expiration of that time the images are covered with mother of pearl to such an extent that they ap pear to have grown in this natural manner. The Chinese people hold these shells in great reverence, believing that Buddha dwells within them. However, should a Christian chance' to look upon one of the shells it has no further value to them, as its charm is supposed to have left it Scientific American. Full Panel. The Jurors filed into the Jury box and after all the 12 seats were filled there still remained one Juror stand ing outside. "If the court please," said the clerk, "they have made a mistake and sent us 13 jurors instead of 12. What do you want to do with this extra one?" "What is your name?" asked th Judge of the extra man. "Joaeph A. Braines," he replied. "Mr. Clerk," said the Judge, "take this man back to the jury commission ers and tell them we don't need him 1 as we already have here 12 men with out Braines." !
