HOOD RIVER GLACIER, THURSDAY, MAROH 8. 1906.
HAIR AND E EAR D8. tbr Ha rinred Impartaat Part la tfca World's Hlatorr. Iu centuries past the human halt played an Important part in all Judicial proceedings. Those that wer permit ted to wear beard and hair had right! teat could not be claimed by the shorn ami shaved. When men made oath they touched their beard and hair, and women placed the finger tips of the right hand on their tresses. Servants were obliged to have their hair cut, and if a freedman went Into slavery he had to divest himself of hi hirsute adornments. An adult adopted by foster parents was obliged to have his beard shaved, and the shaving of beard and hair was a punishment in flicted on criminals. The Jurisprudence of our ancestors dealt with punishment "by skin and hair" for small offenses and "by neck and hand" for greater crimes. There has always been more or less superstition about hair. Great strength was Implied by It, and wizards and witches knew of concoctions of hair by which they poisoned enemies. Cat's hair was especially named In the cate gory of poisonous hairs, and even at the beginning of the seventeenth cen tury Paulus Zacchlas, famous physi cian, writes of the virulent poison of the hair of cats. Among civilized people such supersti tious beliefs have gone out of existence, and only Malays give their enemies tiger hairs In broth to kill them. THE HUMAN RIBS. Man Has Twelve Pairs, aa Womaa ' Has Jnat the Baate. A man who had been sick said he was bo thin he could count his ribs. When I heard this statement I asked, "How many did you countf He was uuuble to answer. Several friends were standing by, and the query was put to them. Not a man could tell the num ber of his ribs. One bright chap said iu all seriousness that a woman has one more rib than a man, because man lost one In the fashioning of woman. And, do you know, this belief is com mon? Suddenly spring the question on any acquaintance you may happen to meet in the day's Journeying. Unless be be a medical man be will in all prob ability be unable to answer. It Is an anatomical fact that man has twelve pairs of ribs and woman the same number. The four short ribs, two on each side, are the "free" ribs, and in all probability Eve was msde of one of these. A man could manage to struggle through life without his free ribs, and I have no doubt that ere long some corset manufacturer will require woman to have hers removed In order to lengthen her waist and to reduce Its girth. To break a few of the asternal ribs (ten altogether) Is nothing; to break some of the sternal (fourteen in number) ones Is far more serious. New York Press. MASCULINE DIMPLES. PARISH REGISTERS.

A vicar, John Printer of Worle, ii accused In 1584 of having got so drank "at a Taverne In London, being th howae and eigne of the Swann in old Fysh Street," that he had to be "carled to his Lodglnge, or some other conven ient place, (he) being so dronck, not liable hym-sealf to goo" that Is, walk. Be is also charged with being "a common player at Bowles In th churchyard of Worle (bis own parish) and a common haunter of Tavernes, alehouses, Bearbeatlnge (baiting) and Bnl-beatlnge, yea, upon the Sabbaoth dales, and an usual plaler at Tables (backgammon) & Cardes In the ale houses and Tavernes." On Sept 25, 1021, John Brock of Dundry is presented. "For usuallle playing of the fines and cudgllls In the churchyard thean on Sabbaoth dale and nolle dales, ai nanielie bee, with others, did soe up pon St Marke's dale past nd being reproved by the churchwarden for th same, hee gaue him a fro ward answer, sayinge, 'wee are at exercise to doe th kings service, & you will not suffer us, but the whiles you cutt your neighbors throats.'

"Dimples are Just as common among men as among women," says a New York beauty doctor, "only they don't show off to such good advantage. Beard and mustache combine to hide their charm. Anyhow, men are not prond of dimples. They consider them a sign of effeminacy. Now that smooth faces are the fashion, the man with a dimple In cheek or chin Is hard put to it to hide that beauty mark. In his ex tremity he seeks relief from me. " 'What can I do with these confound ed dimples?' he asks. " 'Take 'em out,' I advise. " 'Can you do it? be asks. " 'Sure,' says I. " 'AH right,' says he, 'go ahead.' "Then I begin treatment In the past year I havo removed sets of dimples . from men's faces that any woman of their acquaintance would have paid $100 for. All men with money to spend patronize the beauty doctor more shamelessly than they used to, but of all the miracles they wish performed there is none they insist upon so stout ly as the removal of dimples."-Ex-change. "Watch" va Board Ship. Onboard all ships a aeries of -watches" are established, so that work is shared equally among the sailors. To aid this object also the crews are divided into two divisions, starboard and port A ship's day commences at noon, and there are seven watches. The watch which is on duty In the forenoon one day has the afternoon next day, and the men who have four hours' rest one night have eight hours the next This is the reason for having "dog watches," which are made by dividing the hours between 4 p. m. and 8 p. m. Into two. Rhnnatlim aad Taa. The discovery of a remedy for rhen matlsm by means of tan was acci dentally made by a tanner of Ulm, Wurttemberg. One day he fell Into one of his own vats, and, as no one was near, he had to remain In the tanning linuid for over half an hour. When rescued he found, it is said, that his rheumatism had entirely left him. Ht then turned doctor and treated by means of a system called electrotanno- therapia. Re Qalttlaa;.

Among all the thousands of feathered creatures classified by the trained or nithologists but one, the rplr n'doob, or "bird of deuth," Is known to be ven omous. This queer and desdly species of the winged and feathered tribe is a native of the Island of Papua, or New Guinea. The bird is described as be ing about the slxe of a common tame pigeon, of gray plumage and a tall of extraordinary length, ending in a tip of brilliant scarlet red. It is a marsh bird and is found to Inhabit only the Immense stagnant pools adjoining the lakes of the Interior of the island. The rplr has a booked beak as sharp as a cock's spur and hollow. The venom with which It Inoculates Is distilled In a set of organs which nature has pro vided for that purpose and which lie In the upper mandible, just below the openings of the nostrils. Under this poison secreting laboratory in the roof of the mouth Is a small fleshy knob. When the bird sets Its beak in the flesh of a victim this knob receives a pressure which liberates the venom and Inoculates the wound. No man, native or otherwise, was ever known to recover from a bite inflicted by rplr n'doob. The suffering in snch cases is said to be much more agonis ing than In cases of rattlesnake and Gila monster bites. igf 11) fgswr The Amon 1 of marriage li alwavsababy Without It. wedlock Is a summer Held that never blooms, a flower that never buds, a night without sun, a sermon without a bsn edlction, a prayer with out an Amen. There never was a hus band worthy of the name, who did not aspire to be the lather and the grand father of healthy, capable children, to hand down his name and the fortune ac cumulated by the sweat of his brow, from generation to generation. There never was a wife fit to hear that noble title, who did not wish to wear womanhood's mast glorious crown, the sceptre of mother hood. Thousands of weddid couples, otherwise happy, fall short of wedlock's f;reatost happiness because they are child ess.

In fact he has the habit to such a degree that he can not stop with one nest, but goes on building four or five in rapid succes sion. And there is nothing slovenly about his work either. Look among the cattails In the nearest marsh, even within the limits of a great city, and you will find his little woven balls of reed stems, with tiny round hole In one side. There Is a certain method even in his madness, for the nest in which his wife Is brooding ber seven or eight eggs is less likely to be found when there are so many empty ones around. Then, too, he naes the others as roosting place for himself. London Opinion. The Hlsrht Name. 'Officer, what Is this man charged with?" 'Carryln' congealed weapons, yer an- ner."
