Bernhardt and Duma
Hftnili Bernhardt had Just been elect
ed a life ineraLer of the Comedie Fran
caise When se found that she had
a paper to sign she became nervous
and went to see the younger Dumas
to tell him that she shrank from the
binding terms of the engagement Du
mas advice was unhesitating My
dear child dont sign your hair is too
curly People with hair like that
and he passed his fingers through his
own crisp waves ought never to sign
contracts for life The temperament
is too intractable
Sarah Bernhardt however signed
and meeting Dumas again next day
confessed she had done so Thats all
right remarked Dumas cheerfully I
have won 500 francs 100 I bet
Mme Dumas that amount after you
left yesterday that you would at once
go and sign the agreement Well I
shall buy you something with the

ceived a magnificent wig of fair hair

Elixir of Yontb
In former times elder flowers were
treasured not only by lovers of hedge
row beauty but by those who desired
to preserve their own beauty and
youth According to the seventeenth
century prescription the elder flowers
were to be gathered on midsummer
day powdered and put into borage
water which was to be drunk daily for
a month the first thing in the morning
and the last thing at night This was a
much prized elixir of youth By com
mon consent there has always been
something supernatural about the elder
tree In Denmark it is protected by
the elder mother without whose leave
it is dangerous to pluck the flower In
Germany the hat should be taken off
to it And in England it has been
variously considered the tree of the
cross and the tree upon which Judas
hanged himself to be treated with
reverence or fear accordingly London
Written on a Slate
General Lew Wallace wrote the first
rough draft of Ben nur on a slate
giving as his reason that erasures could
more readily be made After satisfy
ing himself with a sentence written in
this way he would with a soft pencil
transfer the writing to paper and final
ly when everything pleased him he
copied the entire manuscript in ink
with the precision of an engrossing
clerk It is declared by those who wero
personally acquainted with General
Wallace that Ben Hur was written
and rewritten at least thirty times and
that when the final copy was sent to
the publishers there was neither a cor
rection nor an erasure throughout the
manuscript The printer set up the
copy exactly as it was written and the
author himself never conected a proof
before the bodk was sent to press
Lizards Tails
Certain lizards are remarkable for
the fragility of their tails although
this weakness is not always the draw
back that may be imagined The dia
mond tailed gecko for instance fre
quently owes its existence to the readi
ness with which its caudal appendage
can be snapped off This reptile which
will perch upon a rock head downward
and tail in the air is liable to be prey
ed upon by hawks One of these for
midable birds will swoop down upon
a lizard and seize what it takes to be
the head but is really the tail The
brittle tail snaps off and the gecko
wriggles away not much the worse to
grow another
Precise hat Acid
The women with thin lips and raspy
voice stepped up before the languidly
indifferent ticket seller iu the railway

of pasteboards

to go she snapped Just you sell me
a ticket to New York but bear in mind

A Leading Flprure In the Philadel
phia Hunk Scandal
The career of Adolph Segal who has
been arrested In connection with the
wrecking of the Real Estate Trust
Company of Philadelphia Is an illustra
tion of the strange things thnt may be
done by an operator in high finance
Segal Is charged with complicity In an
attempt to wreck the trust company
and it is supposed that the failure of
the Institution and the death of Its
president Frank K Hippie by suicide
were due to the visionary schemes
which Segal promoted and which
when they did not succeed Involved all
associated with them In ruin District
Attorney John C Bell of Philadelphia
on the arrest of Segal and several offi
cers of the trust company declared that
they had been engaged In a gigantic
conspiracy to defraud the Institution
and that as a result of their acts more
than 3000000 had been abstracted
from it and embezzled for the use of
Segal On the discovery of President
Hippies suicide his family found in his
room a note in which he had scrawled
I was fooled Segal got the money
Nobody to blame but myself
Financial circles in Philadelphia are
at a loss to explain how Segal got the
influence over Hippie a hard headed
business man which he came to exer
cise Hippie was noted for his con
servatism as a financier Segal so far
as he was known at all was chiefly
noted for his nerve and the visionary
character of his projects Twenty
years ago he toiled with bare arms over
a soap caldron in a dark cellar In a
tenement district He had just come
from Austria spoke English with an
accent nnd looked the typical Immi
grant He invented a new process for
waxing paper and out of It made 20
000 He embarked in business in a
small way but soon got up a ware
house scheme for which he had no trou
ble in borrowing 60000 Then he built
a sugar refinery and sold it to the sug
ar trust making a cool million out of
the deal He tried starting a match
factory but this did not sell
One of his most noted enterprises
was the Majestic hotel in Philadelphia
which he fitted up on a scale of un
paralleled luxury He married and
his wife was conspicuous at the opera
for her jewels and gowns and In the
parks she always drove with liveried
servants in faultless attire
Presidents Son and His Recent
Western Trip
Theodore Roosevelt Jr who is just

The Caloric Paradox
Freezing Is usually associated with
cold but wntnr can be frozen on n red
hot plate This pretty experiment has
rightly been called the caloric para
dox If a drop of water is placed on a
redhot or white hot metal plate it
does not suddenly flash Into steam un
der the influence of the great heat It
does not even boll It simply evapo
rates quietly and slowly as It rolls
about the plate Now suppose that
the drop on the plate Is a volatile liq
uid like sulphurous acid It will evap
orate and this evaporation will pro
duce cold Let a drop of water fall
In the sulphurous acid drop and It will
be frozen In spite of the heat M Bou
tlgny thus froze water on n white hot
platinum capsule Faraday carried
this remarkable experiment even fur
ther Pouring some ether and solidi
fied carbonic acid gas on a redhot plat
inum capsule he formed a spheroidal
mass which evaporated very slow
ly He then brought some mercury
Into contact with It and this was In
stantly frozen Now mercury requires
a temperature of 40 degrees below zero
to solidify it and here it was frozen on
redhot platinum
A Restless Patch of Earth
There Is near to the Thurlngen sum
mer resort Traunsee a curious and
locally celebrated phenomenon name
ly the floating Island which disports
itself at will now at this and now on
that side of the Hautsee a small and
charmingly situated lake The little
island also has Its own flora varying
from that on the immediately adjacent
mainland among which may be men
tioned the meat consuming Drosera
rotundifolia while flowers and edible
berries grow here in rank profusion
and slender birches cast their shade
over those who care to land and in
vestigate this restless little patch of
earth Birds are especially partial to
this spot wild ducks and other aquatic
birds breeding here in great numbers
But the great event of the year Is the
Volksfest held upon the island ev

They- Joined Hands
Mr Rhodes once told a circle of
friends after dinner the story of his
first meeting with Beit I called at
Porges late one evening he said and
there was Beit working away as usual
Do you never take a rest I asked
Not often he replied Well whats
your game said I I am going to
control the whole diamond output be
fore I am much older he answered
as he got off his stool Thats funny
I said I have made up my mind to
do the same We had better join
hands Join hands they did Unlike
Alfred Belt Cecil Rhodes had small
patience with arithmetical details
Once this characteristic Involved him
In a difficulty Pitching a balance
sheet into the pile of papers before
Beit he exclaimed desperately Here
you understand things For heavens
sake tell me how I stand
Butterflies That Live on Fish
The butterfly was blue and transpar
ent As through blue glass its tiny
heart could be seen beating inside its
body and the professor read a news
paper article through its lovely blue
wings This he said is the ptero
poda a Mediterranean butterfly It
eats fish On its tongue are rows of
pointed hooks They serve as teeth
This beautiful creature would turn up
its nose at a garden of roses and lilies
but it would feast ecstatically upon a
putrid eel Now and then a pteropoda
is found on the Florida or the Califor
nia coast It is only abundant though
in the Mediterranean
The Power of Intuition
The power of intuition usually spok
en of as being so mysterious is really
not so at all said a woman recently
It is merely the ordinary method of
reasoning from observation intensified
The so called intuitional person differs
from the one of more commonplace
powers in possessing a keener sensi
tiveness to facts She or he for it is
absurd to assert that this power is ex
clusively feminine observes a thou
sand things that persons of duller sense
fail to see and that are beyond the con
trol of the most skillful actor New

An Extraordinary Forest
The most extraordinary forest in the
world was discovered by Dr Wel
witsch and occupies a tableland some
six miles in width near the west coast
of Africa The peculiarity of the trees
is that though their trunks are as
much as four feet in diameter they at
tain the height of only a foot No tree
bears more than two leaves and these
attain a length of six and a breadth of
two feet
Not What He Seemed
Romance has flung a deceptive halo
over the old yeoman farmer He was
certainly not a good tiller of the soil
but lazy old fashioned and unenterpri

of repair no gardens so ill kept no
fields so overgrown with weeds as
those of the small proprietor of the
eighteenth century London Country
