In medieval times many of the places where they hanged people were provided with a kitchen with big pots of pitch. The bodies were pitched all over and made waterproof and able to resist the at mosphere. Then they were hung out as a warning to other offenders. "Hanging was also used as an an aesthetic in connection with the old practice of killing a man for high trea son by hanging, drawing and quarter ing him. This kind of hanging did nut necessarily hurt a man, for five men banged in 1-447—gentlemen belonging to the Duke of Gloucester—had been marked out to lie quartered and drawn when their pardons arrived. They were cut down and soon were none the worse "—Loudon Cor. Baltimore Star A Voracious Appetite.

It was thus entitled by the Italians in the seventeenth century because they attributed the disease to the influence of the stars. A very common belief is that influenza is a comparatively mod ern disease, disassociated from a gen eral class by latter day medical men. but this is far from being the case, for the illness has been mentioned by ancient writers as far back as the fourteenth century, there being rec ords of its appearance In France iu 1811 and 1403.

When Salmon I' «'base was a school boy at Worlhing'on. ().. he was one day left at home with orders to 1:111 and dress a pig whi'e Itisluip Chase and most of the older members of the fam ily were gone. In telling of tills expert Slice he wrote hi an old letter: "I had no trouble in catching aud slaughtering a fat young porker. I had the tub of water all ready for plunging him in. preparatory to taking off Iiis bristles. Unfortunately, however, the water was too hot. or perhaps when I soused the pig I kept him In too long. At any rate, when I undertook to re move the bristles I couldn't start one of them. They were set! But that pig had to be dressed. I bethought me of my cousin's razor—a new one, just pur chased by (hat spruce young clergy man. No sooner said than douc! I got the razor and shaved the pig from tail to snout." This Is undoubtedly one of the most extensive shaves on record. What Rules the World. Many years ago John Brougham. Lester Wallack, Artemus Ward ana others used to meet after the piny ill Windliurst's. in I'ark row. in New York. One night the question. "What rules the world?" arose, and various opinions were expressed. William Ross Wallace, who was present, retired be fore long and some time later called Thomas .1. Leigh from the room and handed to him a poem which he had just writ ten. Mr. Leigh read it aloud to the company, and Mr. Brougham made a happy little speech of acknowl edgment. The thing was entitled "What Rules the World." aud the first stanza ran: Thi-y K,-iy thai mnn is mig-l.ty. Ho governs l.-inil INil sen, He wic-lits mighly scepter O'er lesser powers that I.e.
