'fit Is remarkable that so practical a
people as the Gernaus should continue
to use their blind black letter," says
'Jeroioe Hart. "The German text is
ugly, and when printed from small
type on dingy paper with high speed
presses, as Is the case with most daily
newspapers, it Is difficult to decipher.
Elver since the days of Cadmus alpha
bees have been designed to convey ideas,
and those, alphabets which transfer
thought with the most quickness, elear
ness and precision are the best. Con
sidered from these standpoints the Ger
man alphabet Is one of the worst. That
it is a failure Is shown unconsciously
in many ways. Advertisers, for exam
ple, have no sentiment about them.
They want to reach the reader and
reach him quickly. Therefore nearly
all the display advertisements in Ger
man newspapers are printed in Latin
"So, too, with the commercial and
financial pages. Stockbrokers and mer
chants have no time to waste in de
ciphering badly printed German text.
Therefore the commercial page in the
Oerman dailies is now nearly always
set up in Roman type. Circus adver
tisements, theater placards and adver
tising posters generally, the names of
streets on the corner signs, the letter
lng on cars and omnibuses, even tem
porary signs, such as 'No Thorough
fare' or 'Street Closed,' you nearly al
ways see in Latin characters.
"Another proof of the inferiority of
the German text Is the fact that nearly
all German scientific works are printed
in Roman. This has been the case for
years, but It has had little effect on
the printing of books of a general na
ture. Bismarck did much to retard"this
needed Improvement, for he clung stub
bornly to the German text and fre
,, quently sent back books which were
printed in Roman, refusing to read
them."—New Orleans Times-Democrat.

What Would Happen if it Were Oth
er Than What It la.
A .German astronomer lias published
some interesting observations on the
theoretical effects of a change in the
color of the Htiii. It is amazing to con
sider the possibilities if our sun were
green, .ilue or red instead of what it
is. If it were blue, thei would be
only two colors in the world—blue and
black. If it were red, then everything
would be red or black. If it were yel
low, everything would be yellow or
black. Every one knows that the light
of Our sun consists of six colors, and
the reason things are different hues is
that some swallow up five of the colors
and reflect only one. Thus we have
primoses yellow because they absorb
all but the yellow, roses red because
they absorb ail but the red, violets
purple because they absorb every
thing but red and blue, a mixture of
which two colors forms purple.
In the event of the sun being red.
roses, blood, red ink and all other
things that are now red would reflect
it. So also would snow, the lily and
all things that are now white, but
these would, of course, be red. Every
thing else would swallow up the red
light and appear quite black. Grass,
for instance, would be black as ink,
and so would the blue of the sky, but
the white clouds would be red. The
same kind of thing would happen if
the sun were blue. Everything now
blue or white would be blue and every
thing else black. The whole sky,
clouds and all, would be blue. The
grass this time would be blue, not
black, for it reflects both blue and
yellow. Ilair would be all black, the
red of the Ups would be black, and the
rest of the face would be a cloudy
blue. If the sun were green, we would
have a little variety. Tilings that are
now yellow would still be yellow,
things that are blue would be blue,
and things that are green would still
be green, but there would be no reds,
purples, orange, pinks or any of those
cheery hues that make the world look
so bright.—New York Herald.
THE BAYEUX TAPESTRY.
An Extraordinary- Work of Art of
Great Htntorlc Value.
Few besides those who have visited
Bayeux or have especially studied the
subject have any idea of what this ex
traordinary work of art is really like
or have any authentic knowledge of its
history. It tells the story of Edward,
Harold and William and of the con
quest of William in a series of pic
tures, s6 that Its value is great as a
chronicle as well as a relic of needle
work 800 years old.
The vicissitudes of the treasure have
been many. It is a curious fact.that
from 1476 until 1724 It seems to have
dropped entirely out of the world's
knowledge. It was preserved with
care among the treasures of the
Bayeux cathedral and was brought out
for eight days every summer and hung
about the nave of the cathedral. No
one but the peasants ever saw it, and
the cathedral authorities cared for it
only as a decorafion. In 1724 an! old
drawing of part of the tapestry came
into the hands of a learned antiqua
rian, who tried without success to find
the original. The Pere Montfaucon
also tried to find it and at last succeed
ed and told the world about it in his
great hook',' "Monuments de la Monar
The church had no power to protect
such a treasure in 1724, and the ancient
length of linen with its quaint em
broidery was dragged out of the ca
thedral and used to cover one of the
military wagons belonging to the lotfai
battalion. M. le Fores tier rushed to
Its rescue and substituted a canvas to
cover the wagon and brought the tap
estry to his study till he was relieved
from bis self appointed mission by a
commission, that undertook the protec
tion of the work of art. Now the tap
estry has been restored and may be
seen framed under glass in a museum

MARCUS DALY'S PLUCK.
The Storr of a. i.oitn Tliat Brought
SucceMN und Wealth.
Wiieii the outlook was the blackest
and this indomitable captain of men,
Marcus Daly, had exhausted his re
sources and bis credit a fortunate ac
cident placed in his hands a small but
sufllcient sum of money to transform
inevitable defeat into certain victory.
Lloyd Tevls, the California lawyer, and
his mining partner, J. B. Haggin, who
had been visiting their properties at
Homestake, stopped at Butte on* their
way home to California to take a look
at the new camp. Marcus Daly knew
Messrs. llaggin and Tevis well, for he
had worked for them in the old Califor
nia days. He visited them at their
hotel, not the gorgeous palace of gran
ite, marble, precious onyx and mahog
any which adorns Butte today, but a
humbler wooden structure more in
keeping witli the squalid surroundings
of the new camp. In Haggin's bed
room, the only place available for a
private conversation, Daly made a
clean breast of it to his friends and
appealed to them for aid, explaining
his theory fully and citing niuny ad
ditional facts which had developed dur
ing his mining operations in Anaconda
that went to strengthen it.
It was thoroughly characteristic of
the man that he did not attempt to
haggle over the terms of the loan, but
stated merely the facts and closed his
negotiations with the words: "Now,
gentlemen, that is a correct statement
of the situation of my affairs and the
condition of my mine. I must have
$20,000, and I must have it at once to
meet next Saturday's payroll and cur
rent bills and to provide for the ex
penses of operation for another six
months or so. If I do not get it I am
flat broke and will have to close up. I
have told you what I have got and
what 1 think and what I think I am
going to get when that shaft is down
another 100 feet or so. Make your own
terms, but let i.ue have the money."
They gave him the $20,000, and, of
course, being astute business men, a
contract was drawn up and signed then
and there transferring to them the con
trolling interest in tiie property. But
up to the date of his death Lloyd Tevis
always declared that, though he believ
ed thoroughly in Marcus Daly's integ
rity, both he and Mr. Haggin thought
that he was chasing a chimera, that the
theory upon the elaboration ol' which
Marcus Daly had spent so many sleep
less nights and all his substance was
fallacious, and that no gold-copper de
posit would ever be discovered in the
bowels of Butte mountain. In fine,
Haggin and Tevis let Daly have $20,000
because they liked him. They certain
ly never dreamed that Anaconda
would prove a more veritable bonanza
than the Comstock lode. As for Daly,
he had never doubted his ultimate suc
cess, and when three months after that
meeting in the hotel bedroom the main

always believed it would, the richest Schubert's, Druggist.

Au Indian Legend.
There was once a man who lived in
the forest far from the rest of his
tribe. He lost his wife and was very
lonely. After awhile he made a wood
en doll about her size, dressed it in
the clothes she used to wear and set it
up in front of the fireplace. Then he
felt better. So a year passed away.
One night he came home, and there
was his wife sitting in a chair in place
of the doll. She spolce to him, saying,
"The Great Spirit felt sorry for you, so
he let me come back to see you, but
you must never touch me, for if you
do you will kill me." They lived thus
together for a twelvemonth, but one
night he attempted to clasp her in his
arms. Behold, he was holding a wood
en doll! She did not come to life again,
and he was very unhappy ever after.
