NAUTICAL KNOTS AND MILES.
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

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
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
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
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
simple knot tied in the log line
was therefore not a mile, but
merely the one hundred and twen
tieth part of one.—St. Louis Globe
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
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
round, cut down the trees and en

of its former distinguished occu

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

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
