HUTS AND HATS.
Man' Headgear Waa Firat Fashioned
After His Habitation.
It has been pointed cot that the
form of the hat bears a certain rela
tion to buildings of a primitive nature
huts. A dlatlngnlabed architect haa
Invited attention to the curious re
semblance that has ex luted and that is
till to be found In many countries be
tween headgear and habitations or
other buildings. It may be that the
same taste, or the lack of it, baa given
rlne to the similarity of style, or In
the beginning the designer of the bat
may have taken the hut as a model.
In the Hawaiian Islands, long before
the inhabitants took the trouble to
clothe themselves, they built grasa
bouses, and at the present time the
characteristic Hawaiian hat is remark
ably like the hut
The turbans of the dignitaries of the
eastern church are still of the shape of
those worn by the high priests among
the Jews of olden times, and they are
extraordinarily like the characteristic
domes that surmount mosqnes. Again,
it Is pointed out, the high pointed
spires of Gothic churches were con
temporaneous with the high hornlike
headdress known as the hennln.
It Is beilved. too, that like reunite
may be found after a comparison of
other styles of archltectuure with the
heádgcar of the period wherein they
flourished. Harper's Weekly.

"In literature," said a publisher,
"popular success frequently comes by
accident A remarkable case was that
of J. H. Shorthouse. This man, poor
chemist, spent some years writing a
book called 'John Inglesant' But the
publishers would have none of 'John
Inglesant.' and Anally Mr. Shorthouse
printed 100 copies at his own expense,
"Only forty of these copies sold, one
purchaser being photographer. The
photographer took Mr. Gladstone's pic
ture some weeks later, and the old
man chose a studious pose, sitting with
a volume in his hand. He bent in
absorption over the work, which hap
pened accidentally to be 'John Ingle
sant,' and in the thousands of copies
of the photograph that were sold the
book's name was plainly to be made
"Mr. Gladstone was regarded aa a
great critic, and the people thought
be desired to recommend 'John Ingle
sant' What was the result? Within
the year 300,000 coplea of 'John Ingle
sant had been sold, and Shorthouse
was a made man."
Asasslz and the Girle.
Concerning Louis Agasnlz, naturalist
when a professor at Harvard, this
story is told by James Kendall Hoe
mer In his "The Last Leaf:" "As he
strode homeward from his walks In
the outer fields or marahes we eyed
him gingerly, for who could tell what
he might have in his pockets T Turtles,
tadpoles, snakes, any old monster,
might be there. He was on the friend
liest terms with things 111 reputed,
even abhorrent and could not under
stand the qualms of the delicate. He
was said to have held up once in all
Innocence, before a class of school
girls, a wriggling snake. The shrieks
and confusion brought him to a sense
of what he had done. He apologized
elaborately, the foreign peculiarity he
never lost running through bis con
fusion. 'Poor girls, I vUl not do it
again. Next time I Till bring In a
nice, clean leetle feesh.' Agassis took
no pleasure in shocking his class. On
the contrary, he was most anxious to
engage and hold them."
The Unsociable Little Fellow.
At dinner during a voyage to Cor
sica, to which my father invited the
passengers who included some officers
of his regiment and two Corslcana.
he requested an officer, M. de Belloc.
to call a young man who waa wearing
the uniform of the military school and
reading at the end of the boat The
young man refused. M. de Belloc
csme back irritated and said to my
father: "I ahould like to throw the
unsociable little fellow into the aea.
He has an unpleasant face. Will you
grant me permission, colonel?"
"No," said my father, laughing,
"and I am not of your opinion. His
face shows character, and I am sure
that be will be heard of some day."
The unsociable fellow waa the future

Comtesse de Bolgne.

MYSTERY OF THE PLAGUE.
How and Why Did It Disappear From
England In 1847?
Why did the plague disappear from
England? Mr. Bernard Shaw Inci
dentally asks this deeply interesting
question in a letter to the Nation, and
we cannot say that we are satisfied
with his answer. He says he "knows"
that plague haa been "extirpated" by
Until the recent sporadic Imported
tases, the last recorded cases of plague
In England occurred at Nottingham in
10(17. In that year plague vanished ut
terly from England for two and a half
centuries. No one who has examined
the records of the seventeenth century
can believe that It waa "extirpated" by
sanitation. Very gradually In tbe suc
ceeding century and a half plague
withdrew from Europe also.
Tbe date of its disappearance from
Constantinople has been fixed at about
tbe year 1841. It remained endemic
only In a few lonely places In the
world, such as tbe highlands of west
ern Arabia, Yunnan in China and Mes
opotamia. Sanitation, though an ex
cellent palliative, certainly never drove
the plague from Stamboul and Cairo
and the southern Mediterranean, any
more than it did from England.
Tbe shrinkage of plague is as great
mystery as the recent outburst which
Infected the whole world. Perhaps the
explanation is that In a few years bac
teria may go through tbe myriad trans
forming processes of evolution which
in the case of humanity take eons to
complete. Pan Mall G aserto.
HIS VISIT TO MORGAN.

with my big envelope of life and death
statistics, twenty year endowments,
and so forth, in my hand. I waa, I
have aluce learned, the first and only
insurance agent who ever managed to
meet Mr. Morgan face to face."
"Well, what happened?"
" 'Mr. Morgan,' I began hurriedly,
'you ought to carry more life Insurance.

Why Elephants Fear Mloe.
It seems Incredible that ao small and
harmless an animal as a mouse Is able
to frighten an elephant almost out of
Its senses. One little mouse In the
hay on which they are feeding will
stampede an entire herd. In their na
tive land there are little animals,
known as chacanas, which feed on a
small, sour berry of which elephants
are very fond. They Uve In settle
ments, something after tbe manner of
prairie doga, under the berry buahea.
When feeding, .the elephants trample
tbe little towns, and the chacanas. In
their fright run up the tubes of the
elephants' trunks. Their long, sharp
claws catch in the flesh, and they can
not be ejected. The more violently tbe
monster blows through its colled trunk
the more firmly tbe booked clawa of
the little animal become imbedded In
the flesh. Inflammation and death are
tbe result In captivity tbe elephants
think they are In danger of the deadly
chacanas when they see a mouse.
Malaria haa been recognized since
the days of Hippocrates as one of tbe
most formidable and destructive of
maladies, the more formidable because
it waa supposed. In accordance with
the name which Maecullob adapted
Cr'lt from the Italian less than a
century ago, to be caused by a per
vasive venom In tbe air. But alnce
tbe epochal observations of Laveran,
the labors of GoUri and bis colleagues
and tbe experimental and discoveries
of Roes it has loat much of Its mys
terious terror, and tbe sure way to Its
prevention and extirpation baa been
revealed. New York Tribune.

' WILY KING EDWARD L
Fooled the Rebellious Welsh With the
Prinoa of Wales.
After a llfeloag struggle with the
Welsh, Edward L of England sought
to ascertain the cause of their constant
rebellion and was Informed that they
would never be content until they had
a prince of their own.
The wily old monarch asked them If
a prince born In Wales who could not
apeak a word of English would be sat
isfactory, and they received the offer
with great enthusiasm, presuming that
the king meant one of their own flesh
Hie queen, about to give birth to a
child, was hurried to the famous Caer
narvon castle, where 600 years ago
Edward IL, the first prince of Wales,
waa born. Thereupon King Edward,
carrying the newly born babe on tbe
ramparts of the castle, announced to
tbe multitude: "Here Is your prince,
born In your own conn try, who knows
no word of English and who, I promise
you, shall be reared by a Welsh foster
mother and shall learn your language.
Accept you him as your prince?"
In all the six centuries Intervening
the eldest son of the king of England
has been Invested and known aa tbe
Prince of Wales. In the year 1911 the
present Prince of Wales and the future
king of England was Invested on the
same spot as his predecessor 600 years
ago. T. Owen Charles In National
