A UNIQUE CRITICISM,

Nor did he realize that two sharp eyes were scanning his work with that criileal examination cliaracteristu „.o.f. the man who "knows art."' Suddenly there hurst from the visitor suifh a shout as any Indian chief would have been proiid !'. Another and another shout echo ed through the studio. Remington, starting buck, dropped his brushes and palette and turned in the direc tion of the thundering voice. "Ah, hah! My hoy, open hi mouth. Make him shout. Make him look it. Open his mouth. So—so." And the stranger gave vent lo two more shouts tit for the plains. as a result, instead of the slight parted lips, there is a face sol'ull enthusiasm, ,o expressive of a great heartfelt throb giving vein to a cheer, that when one sees the pic ture he is prompted to the action of Uerome, who made prohablv the most unusual criticism ever given on one of Remington's best pictures. Dramatic Detail. Sir to of Miss I'Yis- author of "In the Sixties and Seventies," in which volume ap pears the following anecdote: '\My mother often used to point out little details that had been overlooked. I remember one in 'The Bells,' which my mother told Mr. Irving on the first night when lie returned to our house to supper. People who seen the play may remember that.the first scene is and a small inn that there is supposed lo hive been a deep fall of snow. The inn keeper, in Matthias (Irving), walked on that lirst night in ordinary black boots, with them. no •tancc." snow upon My mother spoke of it, and afterward Matthias wove high black boots the and stood on the mat while snow was brushed off. Remarks were mad in the papers as lo .Mr. Irvfyigs attention to the minuli details, and this was eilet] led as an m- Mozart's Guide Werk.

Perfect Confidence. Among the humblest of shop keepers in Cardiff there is a con fidence in their poor customers quite unknown in different circles. One day the proprietress of a small •hop stood on a corner gossiping, and a lad approached.' "Please, Mrs. he announced, "we have been kicking your counter for ten min utes. Mother wants a pound of •oap." "Tell mother/'"wAs the' re ply, "to take what ehe wants and put the coppers in the saucer ^under the counter." Cardiff Western Mail. The Deg'e Kennel. Damp is the greatest evü to which the dog confined outside the house in a kennel is liable. It will kill the strongest dog and must be care fully guarded against. If a dog is to keep in health, too, it is neces •ary that it shouid be able to enjoy plenty of sunlight, and the kennel should always be placed facing •outh, except in the hottest parts pi jtha day in summer, when it should b* moved into the shade.

A Distinction About Which Landsmen Are Apt to Get Confused. A nautical knot, and a nautical mile are two different things, al though they are l'rc|iieiitl\ eon founded by landsmen. The length of a nautical knot is filtv feet and eight iliehe.-, while thai o! a nautical mile varies from the extreme length of (i, 10! feet and III inches In the shortest, ,(MU feet. This variation in the length of a nautical mile is due lo the fact thai it must conform to a line meas uring one minute of are of the earth's surtace at sea level, and as the earth is not a perfect circle the radii differ, and so must the are. To avoid confusion, however, the length of a standard nautical miie has been fixed bv the I'nlied States coast and ycodelie survey at 0,080 ü' the indies, I hat boin. one minute of arc of a of a true sphere, hose is equal to that of the feet and length of great circle surface area earth. The method of determining the distance sailed by a ship at sea in the early days of navigation was by means ot a process called "heaving a log." The three cornered board with lead attached, so as lo (loaI on its edge that it, might not be drag ged through I he water, was attach ed to a long line, and 100 feet from the log or three cornered board a knot was made in the line, and when the log was thrown into the water as the vessel sailed awav from it the line was drawn out of the vessel by the log, which remained stationary in the water. As soon as the knot passed out over the rail or stern of the vessel a Henry Irving was accustomed half minute sandglass was turned to show the time and the sand care fully watched until the last grain had dropped into the lower bulb, and the log line was then instantly stopped at the rail. The distance was measured on the line as it was hauled in from where it stopped at the rail to the knot before mention ed. As a bait' minute glass denoted the one hundred and twentieth part ot an hour, so the log line was a one hundred and twentieth part of the distance a vessel would sail in an hour. In order to make the computa tion more easy knots .were placed on t'ie log line every one hundred and twentieth part of a mile of 6,080 feet, wlfflm placed the knots fifty feet eight inches apart, and the number of these knots which tlie vessel sailed in half a minute wore ho re I ore eijual to the number of miles that I he vessel would sail an hour if she continued at the same rate of speed. The knot received its name from a simple knot tied in the log line and IM0U mid- was therefore not a mile, but merely the one hundred and twen tieth part of one.—St. Louis Globe Democrat. The Japanese Language. The Japanese language has some features which puzzle beginners in its use. in Knglisli when one has learned the name for rice that ends it. Not so in Japan. Begin with cooked rice, meshi. When eaten by a child it is called mama. In speak ing to another person of eating rice you call it gozen. As a merchant sells it, uncooked, it is kome, and as it grows in the field it is ine. So a carpenter's foot, or sliaku, is about twelve inches, but a tailor's is fif teen. A kin or pound of beef is fourteen ounces, of flour twenty one, of sugar over thirty. The ri, or mile, varies in different prov inces, and on the Fusiyama ascent half a ri is maked a ri because it's so much harder work going uphill. Iconoclastic Bareness How*. After Pope's death the villa at Twickenham belonged successively to Sir William Stanhope, who en larged it considerably to Mr. Wel bore Ellis, afterward Lord Mendip, and lastly to Baroness Howe. This lady was so much annoyed at the number of pilgrims who came to see the place that she razed it to the feavored round, cut down the trees and en to obliterate all vestiges of its former distinguished occu pant.—London Notes and Queries. The Silence Cure. Nerve specialists, it is said, are now recommending a "silence cure" for women who suffer from nerves. The patients have to set apart a cer tain number of hours in which no word is spoken. A woman we know tried this treatment, with a curious result. She herself came out in a rash, but her husband, who suffered from headaches, recovered. Lon don Punch. *v Her Question, "Our cause is just and must tri umph,w concluded the suffragette in ringing accents. "And now if any lady cares to ask a question I shall be pleased to answer it."
