It has been my fortune to visit some of the hottest places' in America at th* hottest period of the year, and the reader may he incredulous when I say that I have been vastly more uncomfortable In Boston. New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore or Washing ton in summer than I have at Yuma or in the heart of the Mojave, Califor-’ nia or Apache desert, or any of the great pseudo rummer deseits that reach away in u general line from Yuma to San Antonio. Texas. I recall entering a restaurant at Indio, on the edge of the Mojave, when the heat called to mind proxim ity to a furnace. I suggested to a citizen that It was hot. "No,” he re plied; “yesterday was hot; it was 120 degrees In the shade; to-day it is only 115 degrees.” Yet I have been more uncomfortable in Boston with the thermometer at 90 degrees. In Bos ton the heat was humid; one per spired. At Indio or on the desert the heat was absolutely dry. and at night the chances were that a blanket might be required, nature giving one an op portunity to recuperate, which is not alvays the case in the great cities.— Country Calendar. MAINE'S MANY SPLENDID ELMS. Cltizßns Justly Proud of Those Mag nificent Trees. One of the champion elms of Maine stands in Hallowell. its girth is 17 feet 10 inches, and 1» has a spread of top, measured at right angles, of 106 feet »>y 111 feet. This elm has a most magr-ifleent and symmetrical top, throwing out Its branches more than 50 feet In all directions. Dawn in old York they have some elms of which they are justly proud. One. known as the Grant elm, has a girth of 17 feet 8 inches and spread of tap 71 feet. Another very symmet rical elm stands but a few yards from the York village post office, whoso girth Is 14 feet 10 inches, spread of top »2 feet. —Kennebec Journal. Duties of Warrior Forgotten. During some recent sham fighting by British troops the following inci dent. described by the London Chron icle, occurred: "An umpire on riding up to a trooper of the skeleton army, whose red flag denoted that he rep resented a double company of infant ry, lound him, utterly unconscious of any wrong-doing on his part, plucking blackberries from a hedgerow. The umpire sharply questioned him wheth er he was aware that he was sur rounded. and that for half an hour 1 the guards had not only been firing at , him and his flag from a skirmishing line, hut that a Maxim gun had direct ed Its hailing attention upod him throngh a defile for twenty minutes. The nonplused trooper, wiping the rich purple stains of the blackberries from his lips, then doubled off to join bis unit.” Derivation of “Vote.” “Vote” is a word with a curious his tory. To the Roman a “votum” was a fcolemn promise made to a deity. From the solemn promise itself the meaning of "votum” gradually became the prayer or intense wish that accom panied the promise, and then any in tense wish whatever. So far the de velopment proceeded in Latin and “vole" passed into English with the same sense. When Ben Jonson wrote of "public votes” to heaven he meant not massmeeting resolutions, but prayers. Finally “vote" acquired its present meaning—the formal and em phatic expression of a wish; while the old sense remains with its doublet “vow." Rapidly Drifting. M;.n, like the Indian, is dying out and being driven away. In 1890 there were 3,914,671 women employed in gainful occupations in America. In 1900 the number had Increased to 5,320,807. The birth rate among the female population is increasing, and the death rate decreasing. It is just the reverse among the males. We are rapidly drifting to the age of the , “eternal feminine,” whep man will be a buck number, —Literary Digest. Vegetables and Character. A scientist, after investigating the effect of food, particularly vegetables, on the human character, affirms that a diet of carrots ameliorates harsh ness of character and .reduces nervous irritability; peas create joyousuess; while turnips have a depressing influ ence. Cabbage is good for pulmon ary complaints, while lettuce acts as a .sedative upon the human frame owing to the opium It contains. Peculiar Tenure. The living of Coleshlll in Warw ick shire, England, furnishes a curious method of tenure for students of folk lore. The vicar holds, or used to 1 old his glebe on condition that if the young men of the parish can catch a hare and bring it to him before ten o'clock on Easter Monday morning he is bound to give them a calf's head and 100 eggs for their breakfast. What Was in the Bottle 7 For the same reason the man had been employed to make an inventory of the furniture in the house. He was so long about his task in the parlor, however, that the lady of the mansion wont in to see what he was doing. On the floor lay an empty bottle. On the sofa luy the man. sleeping sweet ly like a tired child. But (he in ventory had not been wholly forgot ten. At the top of tha rage stood a solitary, eloquent entry: “One re \Q\Y~.g carpet.’’—Exchange. 1 LEAVES SUITCASE AS NOTICE. Repentant Prodigal Waits to Be Sure of His Reception. This story may he true, then agein it may not.' A generally truthful per son told it to me and named a promi nent man as the main character in it. He says this man. sober and indus trious man at home, is accustomed at times to let the strain relax, takes a trip and forgets his troubles. It Is ' bis method of home-coming that makes tin* story. He is always uncer tain about bis reception at his own fireside, so he carefully unlocks the front door, places his suitcase in the hall, retires to the porch, rings the bell and then crosses the street anti ;emaln.s there with eyes fixed on the door. If. after a wait of considerable time, nothing develops he lets himself into liis home. But if .he suitcase Is propelled from the door with s if ficient force to send it into the street i with the person who sent It there concealed, the man picks it .up and foes away ou another trip. This pro cess he kc'-ps up until the suitcase is allowed to remain in the house, al though he may have to make five r.r six trips hand running before the hi* It case remains undisturbed.— Exchange. WANTED IT FULLY UNDERSTOOD Uncle Ben's Offer of Help Evidently Wai Genuine. Uncle Ben, an old colored man, h-ktl received many favors from a fam’ly who had taken a kindly Interest in the old man. A. member of the family was stricken with a serious Illness and each morning found Uncle B-*n at the door anxiously asking if there was anything he could do. One morn ing the lady of the house said to him; "No. uncle, I don’t ihlnk there Is any thing you can do this morning, but we will certainly cull on you if we need you." “Dat's right. Missy, you know I’se pow'ful fond o' you alls, and I set a heap o' store by yo' paw. Well, good mawnin'. Missy, yo' cun ax me to do anythin', my detentions is alius good, you’ll alius find me gratltudlnous. never wantin’ in reciprocality. Good mawnin*.” How to Cure Poaching Cat. A writer in a sporting contemporLiy discusses the eat as a poacher, and describes the bag of a homeless ani mal that had a litter of kittens -n the hollow of an old elm tree. Tills cat appears to have been the scou»:e of the whole countryside, as she k bl ed, to the writer's certain knowledge forty young pheasants and partridge Chicks, besides fourteen leverets and a score of baby rabbits. A cat that, has once entered upon n course of poaching is a far more formidable offender than any dog. but. it is pot generally known that there is one certain cure. This Is to crop the ani mat’s ears close to the head, so that the water drips into them off the bush es as the cat crawls about under Ihe undergrowth.—London Globe. New Treatment for Rheumatism. Knitting is declared by speciailiis in th<- treatment of rheumatism to be a most helpful exercise tor natuls liable to become stiff from that pain ful complaint, and It is being pie scribed by physicians because of its? efficacy. For persons liable to cramp, paryly sis or any other affection of the geru of that character, knitting is re garded as a most beneficial exercise Besides, the simple work is said to ;>t a most excellent diversion for the nerves, and is recommended to wom en who suffer from insomnia and de pression. Coppers. Our own impression is that the r* h er the congregation, the smaller ;.re the offerings in proport ion to the means of the givers. If the rich gave in the same proportion as the poor and the humbler middle-class, the col lections in wealthy parishes would be very different from what they are. It. is. we think, among the riel er I class ihaf the duty of almsgiving is j least practiced and most needs to ye taught.—Church Times. Growth of State Universities. President Pritchett of the Mas ri ch tisetts Institute of Technology in an article In a recent number of the At lantic Monthly, says that the most re markable educational fact of the last fifteen years in this country has been the marvelous growth of the state uni versity. Of the twenty largest insti tutions in this country twelve are state rniversities; of the first five three arc stat'' universities. Japanese Shrines. The latest official returns show that there are 193,299 shrines and 109,970 Buddhist temples throughout Japan, in addition to 1.142 Christian churches and other places of worship. The Shinto and Buddhist priests number 84.488 and 73,270 respectively, while the ministers of other religions are 10.038 in number, including 441 fore'gn missionaries. Too Sick to Bee the Doctor. A few years ago a man was sent from Dalton to a neigh boring village, a distance of about nine miles, for a doctor, says the Boston Herald. It was in the middle of the night, and the doctor harnessed up his horse, and drove over the rough, dark roads to the sick man’s house. What was bis chagrin when, on reaching the house, a man's voice came from one of the upstairs rooms, saying: “Doctor, this man is too sfcl to see you to-night; you'll have t«. I coma again.” AM you wnut to know about the un trustworthiness of a man is when he pretends he is glad he has red hair and about a girl when she pretends she isn’t.
