Winning a Bouquet.
Among his stories of Homburg In
King Edward's days the author of "On
the Track of the Great" notes the fash
ion of "bunching" (presenting bou
quets to ladles) on the promenade and
tells this story of Bang Edward and
the Roman artist, Corro dl:
One morning dear old CorrodI was
carrying around a. bouquet of serious
proportions of flne tea rosea which be
proposed presenting to an American
lady for whom he was eagerly seeking
In the large mass of promenaders. All
at once he unexpectedly came across
the prince, accompanied by Lady Cork.
"Good morning. Professor CorrodI!1
exclaimed his royal highness. "How
very kind of you to think of bringing
Lady Cork such a beautiful bouquet! '
Of course there was nothing left for
the genial Italian to do but to part
with bis flowers and go and buy some
more for the American lady.
Undoubtedly a number of bathers
who are drowned meet their deaths
from cramp. Cramp Is liable to seise
anybody at any moment, and when It
comes In deep water few swimmers
have sufficient presence of mind to
turn on their backs and wait quietly
until the attack has departed. So they
go under. But there la another danger
quite as Imminent as cramp, though it
Is probably less known. This is water
Inhaling. A swimmer or even a wader
is always liable to inhale spray through
bis nostrils, which, passing through the
pharynx and behind the epiglottis or
windpipe guard, gets into the windpipe
and causes death. As one would ex
pect, water inhaling is almost wholly
confined to the sea and very rarely
occurs In fresh water. AU the same.

The English are said to produce the

Paid WHh Interest.
In Bnrnaby's "Travels In America In
1750" the following Incident is related)
The captain of a British man-of-war
trnlslng off the Massachusetts coast
left his wife In Boston. On one of bis
visits to port she came down to the
wharf to meet him, and she wss pub
licly kissed by her loving spouse. This
violation of the law was st once re
ported, and the captain was brought
before the magistrate snd sentenced to
be publicly whipped. There was no
getting out of it, and the captain sub
mitted quite gracefully.
Just before the departure of his ship
he gave an elaborate entertainment, to
which all of the magistrates were In
vited. After the festivities were over
and every one had shaken hands with
the captain and was going over the
side the magistrates were seized by
the arm and stripped to the wasst.
Each one was led to the gnnpway,
where a rigorous boutswalu gave biro
thirty-nine lashes on the bore buck

hare we the right to speak of the
"cure" of the patient, is the editor's
opinion. Immunity conferred by such
a cure, he says, may be only temporary.
"Where a disease procesa is only lim
ited or shut off and Its further spread
prevented, while the causal agent re
mains, we should speak of arrest, but
not of cure. Where grave organic
damage has occurred and function has
been restored by vicarious activities
we should speak of the result aa one
of repair or compensation."

Edward 8. Moffat on of the charac
ters, an American girl, thus describes

Greek mythology created some fe
male deities who were supposed to In
habit the lower regions snd visit the
earth to avenge supposedwrongs and
punish their enemies. Black sheep
were sacrificed to them at night by
the light of torches, snd they were rep
resented as horrid looking creatures,
wearing long, black robes, with snaky
locks, bloodshot eyes and clawlike
nails. Sometimes they had snakes or
torches In their hair and carried
scourges or sickles to their hands.
The Greeks called these Imaginary
creatures Erinyes, and the Romans,
adopting the same idea, called them
furies. Vergil represents them aa will
ing agents employed by the higher
gods to stir up mischief, strife end
hatred on the earth. Philadelphia

It is stated that worsted was first
spun at Worsteed, Norfolk, England, in

phrase, "Worsted stocking knave."

Some years ago the Oldham ama
teurs were producing one of Handel's
oratorios under the personal tuition
and conductorsbip of the late Charles
Halle. Among the orchestra was the
famous and gigantic bassoon player,
George Beet At the Unnl rehearsal
Halle weut to George and. Indicating
several bars for the bassoon, told blra
not to play them on the nlglit of the
performance. George was inwsrdly
boiling with Indignation, but said noth

George played the banned music

The Anolent Greek Theater,
The performance at Athena, in an
cient Greece, began at dawn, and, as
several pieces were produced one after
the other, these performances lasted
the whole day. On the days the per
formances were given all work was
suspended, business put off. Impris
oned debtors were set free and arrests
strictly prohibited. Long before sun
rise thousands of people assembled,
scd outside of the theater noisy
crowds of men, women and children
congregated, all bent upon enjoying
themselves and eager to obtain the
bent seats. Many of them brought
their food with them, and in order to
stimulate the enthusiasm of the peo
ple copious quantities of fiery Greek
wine were given to Impecunious cltt
sens by wily authors, who endeavored
thus to buy the applause of a discrim

Adopting the well known hypothesis
of Helmboltz, which attributes the
production of the beat emitted by the
sun to its contraction, an idea can be
formed of the sun's duration. If one
gives to tha sun a coefficient of ex
pansion Intermediate between that of
mercury and that of gas one arrives at
the conclusion that It baa taken 1,000,
000 to 8.000.000 years for the sun to
contract to Its present radius; In par
ticular. It would have taken 10,000 years
to contract from infinity to a radius
twice its present radius. Finally, the
sun will take 200.000,000 years to con
tract from Its preseut radius to half
that radius, and even then Its tempera
ture at the surface will be 8.000 de
