By "absolute zero" Is meant the low- ?st temperature compatible with heat that point of temperature. In fact, at which a body would be wholly depriv ed of heat and at which the particles whose motion constitutes heat would he at rest. This temperature Is sup posed to be about 271 degrees C. or -101 degrees F. The term "heat" Is here used In Its scientific sense, for as men use the word In everyday language its signifi cance depends on the temperature of the human body. Men call "warm" everything with a temperature higher than their own and "cold" all those abjeets which have less heat than they. In reality, however, the coldest body Known to man Is far from being utter ly without heat. lee. for example, has beat, only In a degree so much below man's temperature that one can scarce ly imagine It to be anything but "cold," l term which actually implies a com paratively low degree of heat. Accordingly the zero of thermometers Is only a conventional point marking a ertaln degree of heat. There seems to Lie a point, l'ojvevcr. where heat ceases absolutely, and this point it is which is known In chemistry as the "absolute sero." Modern Mhii'm Urent Appetite, Custom seems to have decreed tliat three "square" meals a day should be the allowance for the citizen of the United States and Canada, and it was looked upon as being as fixed as the aws of the Medes and Persians, but an up town restaurant man states that a great number of New Yorkers are no longer satisfied with the regulation three meals a day. Four meals are aow asked for. breakfast, lunch, din ner nnd supper. The last Is no doubt superfluous for those who can and do make three hearty meals out of the others, but there must be many who will learn with pleasure that It Is no longer Incumbent upon them to go "supperless to their bed." The Idea that Indigestion may be caused by the introduction of the fourth meal Is ab iurd. Scottish American. A I'lornl Inscription. At one time I was pastor of a village where there was a Cerman undertaker who was always anxious to please. Be cause of his zeal In this direction and his habit of so often getting things backward he was the butt of a good many jokes ami furnished others many a hearty laugh. One day a customer of his asked him to telegraph the florist In a nearby city to send a Moral design representing Catcs Ajar." lie hurried to the phone and, calling up the florist, said he wished a floral design. The florist asked what kind He was puz zled, but not defeated, and after some jelay said: "Oh. yes; now 1 got hlml Heaven wide open; that's what they want.'" Ilomiletle Bevlcw. Make n llnnann I'eel Itself. A trick which works on a simple principle Is to make a banana peel It elf. To do this all that Is wanted Is a bottle, n ripe banaua and a bit of paper tvpt with alcohol. Light the paper and drp It Into this bottle. When the air In the bottle Is well heated, set the ba nana on end on fop and let It do the rest Itself. As' the air on the Inside ?ooU off and contracts the outside prep sure pushes the banana down Into the bottle unt It has drawn Itself out of Its ikln. Cries of Animals.

Enquire of John Sheidt. 15t5 Tho Inner Door. Moro disasters come to fraternal or ganizations from factional fights and internal dissensions than from all out side influences combined. Three thousand years ago a prophet of Israel warned the warring children of the desert that a houso divided against iwelf cannot stand, and this is special ly true of all the secret Orders. Every member of a subordinate body has a right and opportunity to presont his tIows as to what ho considers tho best Interests of tho Order. But that his views will be coincided In by the oth ers Is entirely another proposition. As Mark Twain humorously expresses it, "It is adllTeroneo of opinion that makes horse races," and you aro cer tain to find Ideas incompatible with those you hold, expressed by intel ligent brothers who aro just as much Interested in tho welfare ol tho lodge as you are. Tho only way in which these differences can be adjusted is by vote, and ono of tho first, last and greatest lessons to bo learned in tho lodge-room is how to take defeat. W Inning with modesty is an easy ac coraplishment; the rub comes in learn ing to lose with grace, and tho great est accomplishment of all is to abide by the rules In every case. The lodge unit is invincible when supported by an united membership, but tho ltdfjo unit Is Impracticable when tho mem bership is divided 'cy factional fights. Guard well the inner door, for it is from within that all trouble and disaster comes. -Tho Chronicle. Heochcr's Thought of Money. Henry Ward Hcccher was on a lec turing tour, and Major Pond, his man ager, was sitting beside him In tho rail way carriage. Suddenly tho preacher slapped his hand on tho little watch pocket of his trousers, and drew forth a small envelope. For a moment ho looked at it in sur prise, then opened it and smiled. Pres ently he turned to his companion. "Major," said he, "I married a great railway magnate a few months ago, and as I was taking leave of him he handed mean envelope, which I slipped In my pocket unopened. That was the last 1 thought of it until today. Just now I opened it, and this is what I found." The major took the envelope. With in It were bills for live thousand dol. lars.
