How the Chinaman regard! bit Idol la told by the Rev. Johu MacGowan: "Tho Chinese la a person utterly de void of reverence, aentlment pr devo tion In hlH religion. With hltn It Is a matter either of fear or of buslnnss, but mainly of the latter; A bouse Is plagued with sickness, which Is put down not to bad sanitation or other uaturul causba, but to tho presence of evil spirit. . Thin leads to a visit to the nearest temple to get the Idol to drive them away. A new business la going to be commented, b it bt'fore do .ng so It Is deemed essential to gjt the support of the Idols. If one Idol nays It will not succeed, another Is appealed to for Us opinion, and If It Is favorable It Ih at once atccyted as the correct one. "Should the venture turn out a fail ure, no re;: oac!i f my kind" Is uttered against the god wLosj prediction hns been( falsified. The man takes the blame upon, himself. Ills character has not been pure, be says, or ho was born under an evil star, or he was nat urally unlucky and so was bound to fall la anything that he undertook. "Men never dream of thinking about their Idols as we do about Qod. No affection la shown for them. It Is most amusing to watch the faces of the Chi nese when you ask them If the Idols lore them. The eyes gleam, the face broadens Into a wide grin and soon hearty laughter Is beard at this most facetious and side-splitting Joke." INFANT WEIGHED 48 POUNDS. I Largest Baby on Record Recently Ad mitted at Ellis laland. The largest Infant for Its age ever passed by the Immigration authorities was registered at Ellis Inland recently. The child, 11 months old, Is as large as the average - youngster of four years, and weighs as much as some children of eight and ten. - When the mother, Mrs. Anna Kra Vet, who was a passenger In the steer age of the St. Paul, told the Inspectors that the child a girl was only 11 months old they asked her several times If she was not mistaken. She had answered the question in English and, to be certain that there was no mistake, an interpreter asked her to Yiddish. "Yea," she says, "It Is not a yeai old, but will be next month," said the Interpreter. The Inspectors and oth ers at the Island gathered and viewed the strange sight. The mother said the child had been weighed aboard the St. Paul, where It had attracted much attention. Its weight Is 48 pounds. Mrs. Kravet Is 24 years old. The baby Is her first born. The father of the child, who preceded his wife to this country, lives In Boston. He came from there to meet her. The head of the child Is nearly as large as that of Its father. "Yes. she's a fine girl, little Annie," said the proud father, as he lifted tho child In his arms and carried It away, staggering under the load. They took the 5:30 boat for-Doston. Airships Could Do Little Damage. Hudson Maxim contends that tha use of airships In war does not hold forth any terrifying prospects. Th dropping of dynamite from such ves sels, he says, might cause some super- nciai destruction, nut it must pene trate and explode Inside battleships and earthworks to do really great dam age. Half a ton of that explosln aroppea upon tne rour-incn aeck or a battleship might kill some men, wreck part of the superstructure of the vessel and dent the deck, but 4he destruction would not be extensive.. Nor would the dropping of such a charge on coast fortifications cause serious damage, the action of dynamite being such that the blast, being unconftned, would re bound into the air In the form of an In- venea cone, so mat tne effect in a horizontal plane would be small. German Fable of the Pansy. A pretty fable about the pansy la current among the peasants in Gen many. In most pansles, especially oi the earlier and less highly developed varieties, two or tne nve petals are plain In color and three are gay. They represent a family consisting of hus band, wife and four daughters, two of the latter being stepchildren of the wife. The plain petals are the step children, with only one chair that Is. one petal between them. The two I small gay petals are the daughters. with a chair each. The large gay petal is the wife, with two chairs. To find the father one must strip away the petals until the stamens and pis tils are bare. They have a fanolful rvaemoiance to an old man with a flannel wrap about his neck, his shoul- iers upraised and his feet la a bath ub. Thackeray's Thoughtfulneas. Mr. It. C.

Three of her brothers were In the navy, her son Frank is also in the navy, and her two daughters studied for the Red Cross service.

Easy to take as candy WANT UNIFORM CANDLE POWER, Movement to Do Away jadth Present Chaotic Conditions. Pretty much everyone thinks he knows what a candle power is the light given by a single candle, of course. As a matter ot fact candles differ as much in luminosity as light houses, oil lamps or fireflies, and a candle power is not one thing, but half a dogen. according to the country where the phrase Is used. In Oreat Britain and the United States the standard light unit is the amount given by a "spermaceti candle, burn ing nn at the rate of 120 grains an hour, with a flame 45 millimeters high," etc. In France the standard Is made of stearin, and Germany's can dle was, until a few years ago, par affin. Now the latter country uses the so-called Hefner unit ot light, the amount given by a certain form of lamp burning acetate of amyl. An other lamp standard,, called the carcel, was used In France. In this purified rape seed oil is burned. Because of this - unsatisfactory International chaos, It is now proposed that our na tlonal bureau of standards at Wash ington take steps to establish a stand ard International candle, which would be acceptable to at least nine coun tries. The joint committee of gas and electrical engineers which Is urging this standardization declares that the change could be made with very little disturbance ot most of tbe national standards now in existence. MOTHERS WITH LITTLE SENSE. Impatient at Those Who 8eek Remtdy Childish Defects. to Members of tha committee of the physical welfare of New York achool children Bay that It Is not only the children of the poor who need to be examined for physical defects; the children of the well-to-do often need It quite as much. "It Isn't only the children ot the poor who are neglected," Bald one man who has been on tbe committee since Uts Inception. "On the upper West side, for Instance, among the children of people who are xery, comfortably fixed many have been found who need ed medical care and had not had it "And the curious thing Is that some of these parents are furiously angry when Informed that their children have bad teeth, defective vision or diseased throats. I remember one woman who was notified that her little-girl had been discovered by the school doctor, or achool nurse, I don't know which, to have adenoids. ' The mother came over to tell the principal of that school what she thought about such Interference. "'I don't need any school authori ties to tell me that my child has adenoids,' she said. 'If there's any thing the matter with my child's throat, I guess I can find It out with out any assistance from .the school.' " Circumstantial Evldenee. "You say you met the defendant en a street car, and that he had been drinking and gambling," said the at torney for the defense during Ue cross-examination. "Yes." replied the witness. "Did you see him take a drlnkr "No." "Did you see him gambling?" "No." "Then how do you know," demanded the attorney, "that the defendant had been drinking and gambling?" "Well," explained the witness, "he gave the conductor a blue chip for his car fare and told him to keep the change." Llpplncott's. Banking by Mall.
