GREEN- SUtt'-OF- EGYPT,- Curious Phenomenon to Be Seen Only ? . . In That Land. - Perhaps It is the sun,1 and not the moon, that Is made ot green cheese. The appearance ot a green light at sunset, like mány : other phenomena supposed' to have only recently at tracted . attention," was noticed ; and commented upon by the ancient Egyp tian, and more particularly BO because in the clear air of Egypt the tints of sunset are peculiarly distinct. As the sun there descends nearer and nearer the horizon, and is lm mensély enlarged and flaming, it sud denly becomes, for an Instant, a bril liantly green color and Immediately a series of green rays suffuses the sky in many directions, well nigh to the zenith. The same phenomenon ap pears at sunrise, but to a smaller ex tent. Sometimes, just as the last part of the sun's disk vanishes, its color changes from green to blue, and so also after it had disappeared the sky near the horizon often is green, while toward the zenith It is blue. This was alluded to in Egyptian writings. Day was the emblem of life, and night that of death, and the noc turnal sun, being identified with Osiris, thus rendered Osiris king of the dead. The setting sun was green, therefore Osiris, as the - nocturnal deity, of the dead, was painted green. The splendid coffins of the high priests of Ammon frequently depict the, green sun and the funeral deities are all col ored green. There are innumerable instances in the Egyptian relics of representations relative to death being colored green. The practice undoubtedly arose from the green tints of sunrise and sunset. The green sun disk Is referred to 5,000 years ago in Egypt. This is the earliest known human record of an astronomi cal phenomenon. Protection for French Wives. In France no woman may work more than ten hours a day, but a wom an of Marseilles, the mother of seven children and the assistant of her hus band in his vineyard, complained to the magistrate that her husband com pelled her to work from 18 to 20 hours a day. The magistrate ruled that the joint earnings or production of husband and wife are, under law, not wages, but something for the com mon good of a family. Yet the state does not contemplate that 'where a wlte both rears a family and aids in her husband's affairs she shall have less protection both as to her income and strength than an employe. As a matter of reason she should have more protection. Without having spe cified support of the law for his ruling, he held that the wife cannot be com pelled to work more than ten hours a day, and that she must have a full Sunday of rest. The husband appealed the case, but the decision of the Mar seilles magistrate was sustained. The Chameleon Goshawk. I know no bird which passes through so many changes of plumage and color of eyes as the goshawk. A young one which I have mounted is about the size of a small hen and la covered with white down; his eyes are palo blue. I colored the eyes exactly from life. When fully grown, the flrsi plum age is dark brown above, and the eyes are pale yellow. No one would be likely to suspect this being a goshawk who had seen only adult birds. Later it changes to the dark slaty blue of the adult, and the eye, after passing through all the interme diate changes in color from stray yellow, orange yellow and pink, finally assumes the deep rich red of the adult. I know no other hawk (adds Manly Hardy, writing in Forest and Stream) so handsome as the gos hawk. Satisfied. Every man shall receive his own reward, according to his own labor. Not according to his talents and op portunities, but to the use made of them; not to the harvest that is reaped, but to the seed sown; not ac cording to his gifts, not according to the worldly applause he may have won, but according to his labor. This meets the case of every disciple, as well the poorest as the richest, as well the obscurist as the greatest, as well the servant with one talent as the servant with five. Only be faith ful to your trust, and when the labor of the day Is over, and you go up to the great harvest home, you will be "satisfied." L. Boardman. A New Zealand City. Here is what Is done in Christ church, New Zealand, a city of 65,000. It has one large park ot 650 acres and a number of other smaller ones of from two to ten acres. Its garbage is destroyed in 'a municipal burning f.lant, and the . energy generated is utilized ta produce' electric light and power. Its sewer is pumped Into a disposal establishment located on Bandy plains about four miles outside the city, and, passing through aseptic and deodorizing tanks, it is scattered over the unproductive surrounding Boil, which it converts into valuable and productive land. Italy Ahead of England. "What strikes me as peculiar," said the globe trotter, "Is the fact that In nearly all the small Italian towns you see so many sewing machines, up-to-date American ones, too. You see them in every little hovel tn Naples, on the road to Pompeii and else where; but In London they are us ing either the little foolish machines you turn with one hand and try to guide with the other, or stitching by hand." - The. New Indian, - A new, serleaj pi Indian,, portraits Is ineeded. The "noble f red man," of jFenlmpre Cooper and of Catlin, the fierce figure in war-paint and leathers. Post his fomantic interest when he was confined to a Reservation and fed on rations.. Now the '"stallrfed reserva,; jtioa dweller has been, supplanted, in turn by the new man, Indian only in blod and traditions, who is stepping up to take his place in the life of the vest The pictures that are to repre sent the new Indians will include a short-haired, dark-faced man, dressed In black slouch hat, dingy white cot ton shirt, blue overalls, and hobnailed Bhoes. He may be a Kiowa farmer who gathered 600 bushels of corn from 20 acres of cultivated land last year, or one of the 391 Pine Ridge In dians who put up 6,700 tons of hay to carry their stock through the winter. Or he may be Plenty Buffalo, who has worked with team and scraper on the Huntley Irrigation project in Montana tor six months; or Bert Fredericks, the Hopi night foreman on the tunnel at the Znnl dam In Arizona, The pic tures will also depict the Indian woman as mistress of a prairie cabin, feeding the chickens or carrying food to the calves and pigs. They will in clude a group of children, dressed very like white children, trotting off to day school at eight o'clock with their noon lunches In packages under their arms. A big canvas to hang beside the old painting of the war dance, Bays Everybody's, will show 2,000 Sioux at tending a convocation of the Episcopal church at White Swan, S. D., and Hs tenlng to addresses from Bishop Hare, br from their own clergyman, Amos Ross, a full-blood. When the immigrant officials at pills Island learned that Charles Pa Bernini, late of Italy and now an aspirant for future citizenship in the United States, was 90 years of age they hesitated about admitting him because of a possibility of his coming pn the public for support. They be gan to look for his visible asset, says the Cleveland Plain Dealer. In the' first place, he was strong and vigor pus. In the second place, he carried fi goodly sura of money concealed about his person. In the third, he had eight sons and four daughters, all earning good Incomes In this country. Also 35 grandchildren, a number of whom are in business, supporting themselves and their children. Also pine great-grandchildren, who are Siso candidates for future citizenship. Better treatment Is in store for cat tle in transit on the railroads. The ong contest In congress last winter ended, in spite of vigorous opposition of the humane societies, in an exten sion, from 28 hours to 36 hours, of the time during which cattle may be kept without food and water. But the hu mane societies determined that the new law should at least be enforced. The old one had not. So vigorously has the department of agriculture pushed its work that convictions against the railroads have been se cured at the rate of 20 a day. Of 400 cases already sent to the department of justice, only four have been lost, and the maximum penalty of $500 has been exacted In every case. A Cleveland scientist announces, with the air of making a great discov ery, that there Is an advantage In be ing tall because the tall mun's head is higher above the germs of the street. This is neither a new nor an original Idea, says Indianapolis Star. Long ago when "fever'n ager" was prevalent In the valley of the classic Wabash the extreme tallness of the natives of the region was accounted for as being a provision of nature to lift their breathing apparatus safely above the miasmatic emanations of the soil. J. Petehek, of Ausslg, Bohemia, one of the great captains of industry of his country, with a party of friends, is touring the United States. He is at present in Washington. Though but little oven 40 years of age, he owns more than one-half of the coal mines of the Austro-Hungarlan empire, the total output of which Is 45,000,000 tons a year, and Is many times a million aire. Astronomical science has recently modified Its opinion regarding the distance of the stm, and now places that useful orb at 92,843,000 miles, with a possible error of some 60,000 miles, plus or minus. During the present spring it seems a fair guess that the doubtful 50,000 are probably plus. When the scientists have demon strated to their entire satisfaction that mice, kittens and rabbits have souls, they might set about settling the long disputed question whether the human animal possesses such a thing. When a young woman to whom a man gave his seat in a crowded New York street car said "thank you" he fell in a fit The probability la that he will never repeat the rash act t.. , It is calculated that a rat can be boarded a J ear for 50 cents, but at that most rata live on free luncbea .1 . t . f 4 n v J 4 1 v" ':" "- " Liberal,' Indeed.

When the fight began he struck at one huge gray rat with the hoe; the animal squealed, and in an instant the loft was full of rats, which attacked Hunsberger, grabbing at his legs and tearing his trousers with their sharp teeth, others jumping on his back and snapping at him. Hunsberger dropped the hoe, fright ened, and endeavored to get out of the loft through a trap door. The door had "caught," and, finding he- could not get It open, he again grabbed the hoe, and, with part ot the handle as a weapon, fought the Infuriated little animals. Lansdale (Pa.) Dispatch to Philadelphia Record. Macaroni Wheat. The quantity of durum or macaroni wheat exported from Atlantic and Gulf ports from July 1, 1906, to March 15, 1907, was 14,358,671 bushels, or nearly twice as much as in the same period of 1905-'06. Most of It is bought by the countries along the Mediterranean sea, but shipments to 3reat Britain, Havre, Antwerp, Rotter dam, Hamburg and Bremen constitute an important part of the total about Dne-third. Italy Is the chief buyer (6,208,095 bushels) followed by France (2,803,518 bushels) and Germany (1, 107,116 bushels). A Telephone Rebuke. "Some one ought to publish a book m telephone etiquette," said the so ilety matron at a recent dinner, "for most people seem to be totally devoid ) manners over the 'phone. I have iound a way, however, to punish those who think it is your fault when cen tral gives them the wrong number. Whenever they get angry and become Jiscourteous, I simply Inform them that they have got 'The Morgue.' The Uttlo catch of their breath as they beg central to give them the right num!:er Is as good as music to me." Horses for Servian Royalty. To the long list of valuable animals ahlch have passed as gifts from one monarch to another must now bo add ed two of the finest horses owned by the sultan. These have been chosen as presents to King Peter and the Crown Prince George of Servia. Every precaution Is being taken to insure the safe transport of the animals. Elaborate preparations are being made for their care, and one of the sultan's officers will superintend the four grooms in charge of their deliv ery to King Peter's stables. A Water Clock. One of the most curious clocks In the world Is said to be that which tells the time to the Inhabitants of a little American backwoods, town. The ma chinery, which is nothing but a face, hands and lever. Is connected with a geyser which shoots out an immense column of hot water every 38 seconds. This spouting never varies to the tenth of a second. Every time the water apouts up it strikes the lever and moves the hands forward 38 seconds. Women at Johns Hopkins. Johns Hopkins university will hence forth admit women as students and after the same manner that the Ger man universities adopted. Each pro Jessor may admit women to his classes f he chooses and the Baltimore paperr are confident the professors are ready to welcome women students. This change of attitude is said to be the work of President Ira Remscn. From the Odor. Gunner How do you like that cigar, )ld man? You see, my wife bought me 1 box the other day.

Among the most valued possessions in Antrim castle, where the beautiful Vls-countess Massereene and Ferrard is the chatelaine, are the mace and the speaker's chair of the old Irrah house of commons, which may come into use again if the British liberal government carries through It) scheme to give Ireland her own pan liament again.
