BEING FAT IS REAL TRAGEDY To Modern Woman It la ■ Worry That Froquantly Loads to Ruintd Health and Inaanity. A fat man la UHually a Jolly sort of an Individual who accepts the world as the sanie sort of a Joke as the world considers him. Girth, says the Npw York Sun, may worry a man oc casionally because It Is an annoyance, hut with the modern woman It verges upon tragedy. As physicians—lf they would talk freely—can tell you, It Is a worry to them that frequently lends to ruined health, Insanity or the grave. It Is possible for a man to grow fat gracefully. At least he can sub due his habits, stop running for trains, give up his golf and spend most of his time In ponderous poses. His tailor can easily arrange his clothing Into well-known nnd accept ed lines. The ease of the woman Is different. Fashion binds her as with a chain. There are no stylish frocks for stout women. The fashion of today calls for slim figures and trim ankles. Waists nnd hips nre taboo. There are no sleeves capable of concealing over fleshed arms. Man can adopt his clothes to his figure, but woman must adnpf he- figure to the clothes, or else shamelessly admit that she cannot wear what Is fashionable. It was not always so. In another generation the stout woman had a well defined place—the “dowager type.” It was sometimes called. The woman who made the best biscuits and cooked the most savory chicken was always a rotund sort of person who never minded It when people cams unexpectedly around dinner time. She was the one children flocked to for sympathy nnd the one who seemed to make the world brighter wherever she went. FORKS FIRST USED IN 1574 Occasion Wat Dinnsr Qlvsn by Hanry 111 of Franco—Account Olvon by Royal GuosL It Is hard to believe the sensation produced when forks first entne Into use. It was In 1574. at a dinner given by Henry 111 of France. Here is an account by a royal lady guest, the ladles' Home Journnl recalls: "The guest* never touched the meat with their fingers, hut with forks, which they carried to their mouths, bending their necks and bodies over their plates. "There were several salads. These they ate with forks, for It Is not con sidered proper to touch the food with the fingers. However difficult It may he to manage It, It la thought better to put the little Instrument In the mouth than the Angers. •Then Artichokes, asparagus, pen* nnd Iteans were brought. It was a pleasure to watch them try to eat these with their forks, for some, who were less adroit than the others, dropped ns many on their plates nnd on tho way to the mouth «s they were aide to get to their mouths. "Afterward a great silver basin nnd a pitcher of water were brought and the guests washed their hands, though It seems as If there would not he much scent of meat nnd grease on them, for they had touched their food only with those forked Instruments.** Too Much Candor. My traveling companion had been carrying an old blnrk hag which bare ly held together. I had told her that she would have to carry a different piece of baggage If she were going to travel with me, hut It made no Impres sion. One early morning we sal down In a small waiting room In a branch line station in central Oregon. Next to me was an old black hag with which I begun to fumble. Finally I put my finger through a rip In the side nnd began to pull nut some wearing ap parel nnd at the same time turned to my friend nnd *al-.l: "Pauline, you certainly ought to be ashamed of yourself to carry such a ramshackle contraption a* this bag la." "I beg your pardon.'* said a wom an seated on the other side of me. “hut thnt Is my bag." Brasil’s Big Snake Nursery.

At Rntuntan. near San Paulo, there Is a great snake garden where scientists are studying the mys teries of snake biology. The original season for the establishment of the garden, which Is a huge nursery for snakes, was to obtain serum enough for those bitten hy snakes throughout Brasil. The garden Is 000 acres In ex tent and divided Into three depart ments, two of which nre devoted to cobras, crntnllds and bothmps. the most poisonous mnk4s known; while the third department Is given to the nonpnlsonnus snakes.

LONG LOST ROMAN CARVING •lory of tho Rodiscovory of a Lost Treasure, Now in British Museum. A remarkably beautiful specimen of Roman sepulchral . carving ha* Just been added to the British museum through the generosity of Krnent Dix on. The story of the rediscovery of this treasure Is romantic. Mr. Dixon acquired It from a contractor In Lon don. In whose yard It had been lying for some fifty years. He placed tils purchase so ns to form tlfe central feature of a rock garden In Putney, hut afterward struck by Its unusual beauty, brought It to the notice of the British museum authorities, who Iden tified It nK a genuine nnd long lost antique, says the Boston Transcript. The sculpture Is a marble relief, over five feet long hy nearly two feet wide. It shows three draped busts set In a deeply recessed panel. It was a mon ument to Lucius Ampudius Phllormi sus. nnd the busts depict himself, his wife and his daughter. The relief Is not a part of n sarcophagus, but is a slab built originally Into the wall of a tomb. Its date Is probably between B. C. 25 nnd A. D. 25. The sculpture Is first mentioned hy Blanchlni of Verona, who was copying Roman Inscriptions between 1700 nnd 1715. It had been excavated probably about 1700. near the Porta Cnpenn nnd was taken to the Villa Cnsall. Seen and noted on more than one oc casion fluring the eighteenth century, the Inst copyist to mention It wns George Zoegn. who wns established at Rome between 1784 and 1800. After this the relief became lost fo the world. It was perhaps shipped home by some traveling Englishman. who placed It In his house or garden In the St. John's wood region, nnd thence It found Its wny to the contrac tor's yard from which It has now been rescued. FAVORED CLASS IN RUSSIA Only Actrssaaa Art Permitted by Government to Wear Shoes and Finery. There Is only one favored clnss In Russia today, according to n Paris correspondent. Strangely enough, this das* Is composed entirely of women. They are the theatrical stars and beauties. They alone nre permitted the wearing of rich garment* nnd the possession of Jewels. Tim Russians have always been pn*Klonnte lovers of the theater, and. even under the present regime they treat their stage favorites ns so many reigning queens. Incidentally, the actresses nre the only women In Rus*ln today who arc permitted to wear shoes fluring warm weather. The peasant women of Rus sia always went barefoot during the summer months. Hence Russian* re gard hare feet as the distinguishing mark of the woman of the (tcoplp. Any woman who affects to wear shoes In Russia nowadays, unless she In* n , favorite of the footlights. Is regarded , ns a daughter of the despised “hour- | geolsie.** She Is considered a fair tnrget for Insult ami persecution. Ev en the wives of soviet dignitaries, j such ns Trntxky and l.enln, have been , obliged to bow to popular sentiment. \ They may be seen any day in Moscow tripping through the streets barefoot. • The Firefly’s Light. Fame anti fortune await the scien tist who discover* the secret of the familiar firefly or lightning hug. No one has been able to tell how the little Insect produces the flashes of light we see twinkling about on dark nights. Careful scientific tests have proven, however, thnt this light 1* produced with about one four-hundredth* part of the energy which Is ex|>entlcd in the flame of a candle. Considering the strength or rather feebleness of the firefly this light Is believed to he the most efficient form of Illumination to day.

FUNNY SIDE OF WET WEATHER Elements the Occasion of Moro Humor and 111-Humor Than Any Other Earthly Institution. The weather, more especially our British variety, has probably been the occasion of more humor und 111 hu mor than any other earthly Institution, Loudon Tit-Blts says. “What you need." once reninrked a doctor to lilh patient. "Is a,, change of climate." "Change of climate I" cried the man. "That's what’s the matter with me. If the climate would only keep the same a few duys running I would he nil right!" The mutability of tho weather re rnlnds one of the Indignant customer who returned to the shopkeeper, say ing: “Look here, that barometer you sold me a month ago has got out of order. It won't work." "No wonder, sir." rep 11 (Ml the shopkeeper, "look what u lot of weather It's 'ad lately!" Theru Is nothing to heat the ■story of the American tourist who came across a man out West sitting on a -slump. "How’s the weather treating you?" he was asked. "Pretty toler able stranger," replied the man. "I had some trees to cut down, but a cy clone came along nnd leveled them for me." "Thnt was a piece of luck," cried the tourist. "Yes; nnd then." continued the man, "there was a storm, and the lightning set Are to the brushwood and saved me the trouble of burning It." "Remarkable! But what are you doing now?" "Oh. I'm Just waiting for an earthquake to come along and shake the potatoes out' of the ground." Once an old went Her prophet at Whlttlngehnme Informed Mr. Balfour thnt "It's gatin to rain seventy-twa days, sir." "Come, come!" said the statesman. "Surely the world wns en tirely flooded In forty days?" "Aye. aye," was the response, "but the world wastin' sne weel drained as It Is noo." NO HAY IN THE PHILIPPINES Because of Great Humidity Grass Can not Be Cured, 8o It Is Cut Every Day. Because of the great humidity grass can't be cured In the Philippines. As ‘a consequence it Is cut fresh every day and brought into the towns and cities for sale at n stipulated price per cargo, two bundles weighing about 125 pounds. It Is cut with a small home made knife and washed In running wu ter before being placed in the bundle. American horses cannot live on It, hut native horses cat It and grow fat.

It Is a well-known fact that poreus slon Instruments ns a class give In harmonic overtones, and so nre music ally defective. A special type of drum used In India Is a remarkable excep tion to that rule, says Nature, for ii gives harmonic overtones that have the same relation of pitch ti« the funda mental tone as Is found in stringed In struments. The drtimlMv.d produces five such harmonic*. Inclusive of the fundament a I tone. The Jlrst. second nnd third harmonics are especially (Veil sustained in Intensity nnd give a line musical effect. The result Is at tained through the use. on the drum head. of a symmetrical distt’hutcd load (hat decreases In density from the cen ter outward. The load consists of a flexible composition of finely divided metallic Iron. A second membrane In the form of a ring Is superimposed round the edge of a drumhead. The fundamental pitch nnd the octave arc derived from the modes of vibration »f the membrane. The center load Improves the musical effect by In creasing the energy of vibration, nnd ilms prolonging the duration of the tones. —Youth’s Companion. Many Bridal Baliafs.

THIS IS SOME DICTIONARY Arabic Affair Used by Scholars Is In 20 Volumes and Weighs About 100 Pounds. The ponderous dictionaries of Eu rope. even the famous nmny-volunied etymological Index of Lnrousse. which la the monumental work of all modern tongues, are more than surpassed, says the New York Sun, by the Arabic dictionaries of 500 years ngo, which ore still the great authority for stu dents In thut language. The Arabic dictionary most used by scholars who nre familiar with no other language Is In 20 quarto vol umes und weighs close to 100 pounds. There Is a 50-pound ten-volume abridg ment of It, presumably for use at ho ne. This nnd virtually all the Ara bic dictionaries were mnde In the time of the llurun-al-Knshid. The Islamic empire Is credited by Moslems with two great eras. The first was that of conquest, when the only history wns written with the sword. Then came centuries of Mo hammedan domlnntlon.'when the Mos lems peacefully held the empires they had conquered In Asia and In the Ibe rian peninsula. During these art and literature flourished nnd the Arabic dictionary was horn. In Arabia the flower of this |»eriod wns In the golden time of Caliph Harun-nl-Rnshld. Each of the words that have been familiar In the dally life of the no mad Arabs for centuries has nn enor mous number of synonyms. The lion, for example, was feared by villagers nnd hunted not only for sport hut as a mntter of necessity. Therefore In the Arabic dictionary the lion has more than a hundred different names. The camel was the sole means of transportation across the thirsty des erts nnd is characterised In 122 dif ferent ways. Rut above all. the horse nnd the sword were the two great stand-bys of the Arab. There are more than 200 words that convey Ideas of "horse" and "sword." All other familiar words, such n*< tent, flock, herds, wa ter, woman, mn und air. have long lists of synonyms that are Interchange able and In constant use. This affords some slight explanation why Arabic dictionaries nre of so large slue. Arabic, so the Arab* say, wns the language of the Babylonians, and It Is also contended hy them that It was the tongue which Abraham spoke.

HAMLET MODEL YOUNG MAN Writer Declare* That Melancholy Dana Wae “Parfact Lady’s Parfoct Gentleman.” We are told In ao many words that he wns a model young man.. He has presented the English language with two of Its stereotyped phrases for the marking of a standardised perfection; he Is called "the glass of fashion and the mold of form.” The utterance of these words by Ophelia la as Illumina tive as the words themselves. It Is plain that the youthful Hamlet lives up meticulously, not only to conven tional. hut to feminine, to maidenly, standards of propriety and excellence. He Is the perfect lady’s perfect gentle man, O. W. Firkins writes In the North Americnn Review. But we do not need Ophelia's testi mony ; listen to the young man him self. His mother urges him not to re turn to college. “I shall In all my best obey you. Madam," he replies with a flllnl decorum which Samuel Richard son or Hannah More could not huv; mended. Observe the nature of his ob jections to suicide: Oh. that the fCverlantlng had nnt flxed Hl* canon 'gainst self-alaughler. He condemns the act. not because It Is cowardly or simply Immoral, but be cause It Is uncnnonlcal, unscriptural. Here Is a young man In whom his catechist or confessor may rejoice. With such a person It Is obviously hazardous to Joke. When Horatio, his fellow student, calls himself a truant. Hamlet solemnly del cuds him against the charge: I would not hear your enemy eay »o. Clearly this Is a young collegian who never "vext the souls of deans." We see him assiduous st lectures, methodical In his notes. Shakespeare has not forgotten to Inform us that ho kept a note book. Within two nilnutea after his father's ghost has ended the appnlliug tale of the murder In the garden, the young prince Is Jotting down by moonlight an Invaluable memorandum übout the relations of smiles to vlllnny.

FIRST VENTURE OF LIPTON Friend Telia How Ha Took Chanoo W‘th Patrona of a Rundown Grocery. . Dr. J. 11. Ostrander, a personal friend ot Sit Thomas Llpton, told re cent l> for the Jlrst time the story of Upton's initio I business venture, an exchange states. Llpton's first business venture was ao event In one little, cower qf Glas gow. He bought for a Tew pounds a sorry old rundown predate shop that hnd changed hands a score of times; everybody hnd failed. It was In a neighborhood where profits were meager and housewives close trader*, and where sharp practice and Indiffer ent elides precluded credit. So when Llpton announced that he would trust any decent neighbor once all foresaw his doom. Llpton. however, did not mean that lie would carry accounts 30 dags, for at this period flw such accounts would have swamped him. As he himself put it: "In misfortune I will csrry any decent chap till Saturday night. I will he a friend to you In spite of prevailing business rules; bur If you break faith with me you will lose a friend and I will lose my business.” Thus he put them on their honor. And It won; won because sympathy and fellowship dominated tin* boy and ex cited like attributes In others. Of tha Eys of a Frog.
