"Grass Widow" Used by Teutons to
Indicate an Unmarried Mother
Other Possible Origins.
The term "grass widow" very like
ly originated from the wording of a
canon law of the eleventh century,
which ordained that a widow should
remain "under God's protection and
grace" for full year after her hus
band's death, and then marry if she
pleased. Such women were "widows
of grace," and In later parish registers
they are described as "grasse wid-
owes." In the time of Sir Thomas
More the term "grass widow" was
applied fo unmarried mothers, and In
this sense It was used In most of the
Teutonic languages. In modern times
the term lost that reproach, and has
been applied to the wives of men long
absent from home. Another explana
tion of Its origin Is found here In the
United States. During the days of
gold rushes It was common for men
to board out their wives until they had
made enough to start a home In the
West, and this, In the picturesque
speech of the time, was termed "put
ting one's widow out to grass."
A Bit Too Much.
During a concert In a Scottish hall
the official who was collecting tickets
at the door sought out the caretaker.
"(Ja' canny, mon, or ye'll be haein'
trouble," he whispered mysteriously.
"Beegamyno less!" was the ticket
collector's awed reply. "I've let in twa
wimmin who said that they wis the
caretaker's wife, -and ribo there's a
third yln wantln' to come In."
A man usually takes a day off on
bis birthday, but a woman past thirty
knocks off a couple of years.
We'd hate to live next door to a
married couple who never told each
other anything but the truth.
Only .Legend Relied On to Account
for Appellation Given Famous
Bridge in Paris.
Though it is getting on for nearly
a hundred years since the old Pont
de la Greve In Paris has been known
as the Pont d'Arcole, nobody yet has
been able to give chapter and verse
for the change. Now that the-anni
versary of the three days of July, 1830,
the 27th, 28th, and 29th, which Paris
dubbed Les Trols" Glorleuses, .has
ceased to be kept, it Is likely that this
age of local history will remain ob
scure. In the old days the Pont de
la Greve was merely a footway for
passengers. In the troublous year when
Paris rose, the Tuilerles palace was
sacked and the king fled to England,
a young hothead leading a column of
insurgents charged across the bridge
with a flag In his hand shouting
"Follow meI and If I fall know that
my name Is Arcole"or Darcole. So
runs the legend. The famous incident
at the Pont d'Arcole when Bonaparte,
flag In his hand, heading his grena
diers, beat the Austrians, must have
been some reason for giving the
bridge the name of Pont d'Arcole a
few days later. There is no record
of who gave the order for the change.
No record at all of anything connect
ed with the Incident. It is one of the
minor "mysteres de Paris."Christian

Great Gas Cloud Forming.
An enormous gas cloud gathering on
the sun forms an arc 840,000 miles
long on the edge of that body, astron
omers say. It is about 125,000 milei
away from the edge, and the distance,
from the sun to the top of the cloud
is estimated to be 200,000 miles.
