The carriage does not bob up and down when the shift is made to write capitals. Why? Because the type is shifted not the carriage. The only movement of the carriage is back and forth on its closely adjusted ball bearing runways and this does not take place while the print is being made. There is no lifting of the carriage.

One of the regular army officers tells n story of how the old stringent army regulations once went against General Scott. One wet afternoon that soldier was caught in the rain In Washington. He was in full uniform and was well known, so. no cab being near, he bor rowed an umbrella. Arriving at his hotel, an uuderoiiicer approached him and calmly remarked: “General, you will consider yourself under arrest for eight days for carry ing an umbrella while in full uniform." Evolution. In the days when the higher educa tion of women provoked more discus sion than it does now a number of Cambridge university men. among them Arthur Clement flilton. who was born a wit and died a clergyman, were discussing the establishment of women’s colleges. Hilton expressed himself In favor of the movement. “Of course." he said, “when women get tbeir degrees they will not be bach elors. but spinsters of art. and then after awhile they will proceed to the degree of M. A.-ma." Too H**ty. “I feel like a perfect ignoramus in your presence. Mr. Crichton." said the young woman who jiossessed the art of flattery, “too play, you sing, you are an accomplished linguist, you draw —really, you have all the accomplish ments that 1 lack." “Oh. Miss Taurus,” he protested, with becoming modesty, “really I’m not that clever!” Afterward he wondered. If he had said the right thing.—Cleveland Plain Dealer. ■TOOK MONTGOMEH V LAND ft CATTLE CO.

Of late years there has grown up in Cleveland au Impression that Neighbor Rockefeller, despite his pathetically se rious cast of countenance, possesses n good deal of dry humor. In supiKirt of this people cite the unswer he made on the witness stand at u Standard Oil bearing. The attorney for the govern ment had asked him if it were true that the Standard controlled the oil supply of the entire world, to which query Rockefeller replied. “Not yet." In the same connection one may re call the remark that he mnde to a friend who found him playing golf one duy nil alone and asked him if ho wouldn't prefer to have an opponent to make the game more interesting With a twinkle of his eyes the oil dealer answered. “No; I never could stand the idea of competition." There is evidence that Rockefeller had a sense of humor as early as the seventies. In those days he had not yet become Inaccessible, and, although he was careful not to let any visitor about the Standard offices find out nnythlng concerning his business, he was not much more difficult to reach than the proprietor of a harness shop One morning there entered the Rocke feller private office a large, querulous Irishman, a contractor, who had had some business dealings with Rocke feller's oil company and wns nurturing a grievance. The visitor briefly set forth this grievance and then o|>ened up with a strenm of vituperative pro fanity alined at Rockefeller personally. Through it all Rockefeller snt as tf preoccupied, stnrlng at a little spot on his left thumb nail. When the vis itor had quite finished his tirade the oil refiner turned to him as if he had Just recalled his presence and asked quietly, “Now, will you pleaße repent Hint?" The absurdity of the request Is said to have appealed so strongly to the brusque caller that he burst out laugh ing. and the differences were soon am icably adjusted. Then there ts the remark he once made to a waiter in n Cleveland hotel. Thu noonday luncheon menu at the ho tel included roast beef and potatoes for 35 cents, und Rockefeller had been in the habit of ordering roast beef and potatoes with the utmost abandon. One day the scale of prices was ad vanced. Roast beef alone cost 35 cents; potatoes cost 10 cents extra. Rockefeller had been giving the waiter a ten cent tip. hut in view of the extra charge for potatoes he laid out only a nickel for the waiter. The latter re proached him peevishly, saying. “If I had as much money ns you have 1 wouldn't squeeze a nickel so hard." "Well." retorted the oil man. “If you squeezed a nickel as hard ns 1 do you wouldn't be a waiter." Saturday Evening Post Don't Foar Dofoat. If thou knowest only what It is to conquer and knowest not what it is to lie defeated, woe unto thee! It will fare 111 with thee.—lyeyasu (Japanese philosopher). Undordono. ▲ French peasant once mnde a visit, his first one, to Paris. He went Into a cafe and ordered a glass of beer. The waiter brought the beer, together with, ns usual in good cafes, a small round piece of felt, on which he plac ed the glass. The countryman looked nt the felt doubtfully. Then he lifted it and tried to bite It. Glancing round TOOK OCT HIS KNIFK AND GLANCED AROUND. to make sure that nobody wns watch ing him. be took out his knife and glanced around aguin. and then cut the felt Into small pieces. These he gulp ed down one by one and finally wash ed them down with his beer. Rather exhausted by his efforts, he called the waiter again. “Another bCer." he said. “But no biscuit this time!" No Fun In It. Lincoln once tried to rend to Stan ton twho could not abide his chnffi a chapter from Artemus Ward's book. Stnaton left the room In n pet. but threw over his shoulder a parting sliol by asking: “How do you like the chapter about yourself?" To which Lincoln replied laughingly. “Do you know. It may seem queer, but 1 neTer could are the fun in that chapter." Figure It Out. Here la an arithmetical puzzle that It might uraiuse some one to “figger out” before looking ui the answer be low: A poor woman carrying a bnsket ol apples wns met by three boys, the first of whom bought halt of what she had and then gave uer back ten; the second boy bought a third of what remained und guve her back two. and the thtru bought half of what she now dad left und returned her one. after which she found that she had twelve apples re maltnng. What number bad she at Orst? The answer Is simple enough. From the twelve Hpples remaining deduct one, uud eleven is the number she sold the last boy. which was halt of all she had; ner uumbei at that time, there fore, was twenty-two From twenty two deduct two. ami the remaining twenty was two-ttilrds ot her prior stock, which wns therefore tnirty From thirty deduct teu. and the re malnder of twenty Is naif ot net orig tuai stock; consequently she had ai first forty apples. Hee?-Ht. Louts Re public. Fish and Fungus. Every one knows that fishes ot ai most every sort are. when fresh taught, slippery und bard to noid This slipperiness Is due to u sort ol mucus exuded through the scales und is of the greatest lm|>ortnnce to all slimy creatures. One of the important functions ot tbe fish's slimy roatlug Is to protect it from the attacks of fun gus. a form ot plant life found In all waters If the tisb Is so Injured that some »|M)t becomes uncovered by the slime, u barely visible fungus will be likely to lodge there, and when It l» once lodged the process ot reproduc tlon Is very rapid It soon es tends over the gills and kills the fish The primary cause ot the slime of the fish Is to reduce Its friction when In rautlon through the water and there by Increase Its rate of speed It also serves as a cushion to the scales which It protects from Injury. Mars and Its Moisture. Science now seems to hold that the moisture In the atmosphere of Mars Is not uniformly distributed, which we had u right to expect but also that tin like the earth, whose tropical air Is laden with moisture, but whose temper ate and |»olar regions are comparatively dry. Mars has little moisture at the equator, while the water vapor In creases very largely near the borders of the snow cap. It Is therefore the evaporation of moisture from tbe melt Ing snow which replenishes the dry ulr of Mars with Its aqueous vapor The fioles are the storehouses of the water supply on Mars. There are no equatorial oceans and therefore no source of supply by evaporation under h tropical sun. To the polar snows Mara-OHMI -took for Its-water. Right to th* Point. One of the shortest summings up on record Is believed to be that delivered by tbe late Commissioner Kerr ul the Old Bailey In a case where u man was charged with being in the unlawful (Mtssesslon of a gold watch and chain. The appearance of the prisoner oer talnly did not correspond with the le gltlmate possession of such costly orna meats, but he asserted his innocence of the charge and declared that he had found the watch and chain on Hie pavement. The Judge looked at the man In the dock and then at the men In the box “Gentlemen of the Jury, he said. “1 have walked over the pave merits of London during the last forty years, and I've never toiiud a gold watch nnd chain there yet. Consider your verdict!” Thq French Foreign Legion. No other regimdht in any existing army undergoes such Spartan training hs tbe French Foreign legion. When nt their headquarters. Sidl bel-Abbes tbe legionaries are marched off for oc casional training trips of 300 miles oi more. In continuous dully stages of twenty four miles, with only five min utes' halt every six miles.
