Artificial Hatching Is an OIJ Story In the Orient. l''or upward of .".000 years eggs have been hatched nrtiiicially in Lgyjit. in China and other .Viatic colour*.'s. In Kgypi I lie industry is an viiormmis one. and it is esti mated lbat at the present time in lower Egypt there are several hun dreds of these hatching establish ments and that in many ca.-es lhey have a capacity for 10,000 eggs at one time. A few year,-, ago the American consul general in Kgypi estimated that upward of DO.OuO, 000 chickens were hatched annually in the egg mens of that country. There is usually considerable dif ficulty ill persuading the owner of a inamai el iirakh to show a foreigner or even an Kgypiian over one of these primitive incubators, ihough they are quite numerous and are found throiigliiiiil the Nile valley from Alexandria to Aswan. The secret of their structure ami man agement is carefully guarded. The hatching of chickens by this meth od is an important industry. It is almost-entirely in the hands of ihe Copts who make quite a mystery of the whole process. The ovens are worked only from February to May each year. The one visited consisted of four hatching chambers, each of these chambers, about -I by -I yards, be ing capable of holding up to ti.OOl) eggs at a time and accommodating each season about ISO,000 eggs. When the eggs are first put in the hatching chamber they are often piled ii]) four or five deep, but are afterward spread out in a single layer, this never later than the tenth day. The eggs are turned three times daily. On the fourth or fifth day they are tested and all the infertile ones are taken out and sold for human consumption. The testing is done in the upper chamber, which is dark, each egg being held up in a ray of sunlight which comes through a hole in the dome roof made for this purpose. Usually one-quarter to one-third of the eggs prove infertile. It is said that very few which arc left after this first testing fail to hatch. —Poultry Record. The Great Pyramid. The great pyramid originally oc cupied an area equal to .'88,939, 595 superficial feet, or almost thir teen and a half English acres, the side of the square being 7(!7,4?4 feet. The original perpendicular height was 285 feet, and the total contents of solid masonry equal to 89,418,80(i cubic feet, weighing 6,8?8,y.i!l tons. Taking the mason ry at only 1 shilling per cubic foot, an almost ridiculously low figure for materials, carriage and work manship, tho cost of the structure would lie 1,1*0.9 10. The masonry of I he great pyramid would be suf ficient for the erection of 1,120 col umns. each twenty feel square and of the height of the London monu ment. which is 20V feet. Again, if cut into paving stones four inches in thickness hey would cover a space equal io ii.1.18 acres.—London Answers. "I Don't Think." George Grossniith, writing to a London paper of the origin of the slang phrase "1 don't think," re lates that, in spite of the recent claims to it, he ran it to earth in Dickens. He says: "One afternoon I commenced reading 'Martin Chuzzlewit' for the —til time, and halfway through I he sixth chapter found Tom Pinch regretting the departure of his friend Westlock and ruminating thus: am a nice man, I don't think, as John used to say, to lie feeling low on account of the distance between us.'

Grain in India is generally trod den out by the feet of cattle, as sistcd by the thrashing frame. This frame consists of a hurdle covered with brushwood and weighted with bricks or clods earth. The bul locks arc yoked to the thrashing frame and fastened lo a post in the center of a thrashing floor of beat en earth. They are driven round and round the stake about which the wheat is heaped, and in a short time the brittle straw is broken up into short piece- and the grain is freed from I he chair. Wily Athenians.

A Singular Union 3* It -j Was For the Pur- $ 1 pose of Spending -I a Fortune j* *i" By SADIE OLCOTT 1 Georpe Vtiderhill on coming of age had everything to live for. He step peel int" a fortune of half a million, or $-.".oo0 a year: was in excellent health, a favorite with Iiis friends, es pecially attractive to girls, and the management of his estate was likely to give him enough to do to put an ed^i- on Iiis leisure moments. This was I lie outlook liefere the young man the day he was twenty-one years old. Hut on ihat same day lie noticed a swelling in his neck almut the size of a hazelnut, lie had never had an ex crescence of any kind on Iiis body and cop 1(1 Hut understand tlie sudden ap pea ram of Iiis one lie stood before a mirror looking a I it wonderingly. lie 'i im -I led it, and it hurt a little, though not much. lie thought he would show it to a doctor and get Iiis opinion upon it. hut since he expected to lie busy with Iiis guardian and the lawyers nearly all day, passing the papers in receiving Iiis estate, he de ferred the matter I ill the morrow. During his birthday lie was so taken up with affairs pertaining to his prop erty that he forgot all about the swell ing in Iiis neck till preparing for bed. when lie noticed it again lie was a bit troubled about it and resolved that tile first tiling he would do in the morn ing would be to show it to his physi cian, Dr. Franklin. So as soon as the oflice hour of the physician came round (ieorge was admitted to his con suiting room. George did not leave Dr. Franklin's office for nearly an hour, and when he did he was in a very different mental condition front when lie entered it The lump indicated an incurable dis case. The doctor tried in every way to avoid telling him this, for the dou ble reason that his patient would suf fer in mind as well as in body and his knowing that lie had not long to live would hasten the end. George, how ever. gathered from him that he had anywhere from a few months to a few years on earth. As to how much he would suffer the doctor 'did not tell him. Possibly he did not know him self. lie convinced his patient that he had better remain ignorant of what the disease was. George was a philosophic fellow, and when he had recovered, so far as re covery was possible from the shock, he began to lay plans for spending the brief unexpired term of his life in a way to alleviate the condition to the liest advantage. Miss Alice Wood bridge was Iiis favorite among his girl acquaintances, and he thought he would like to have her companionship for the brief season of life left to him. Me called upon her. stated the case and asked her to be his wife, agreeing to settle half his fortune upon her. tho other half to be spent in such com forts or pleasures or journeys as would help him to forget his coining demise. Miss Woodbridge asked for a few days to consider the proposition, but. being a girl with an eye to improving her condition, when she gave her an swer insisted that the whole amount of his estate be settled on her except the income during his life, which she considered ample for Iiis purpose. Whether or no she was right he did not stop to consider, but broke off the negotiations. I George tried several-other girls. One who had no especial affection for him refused him on tho ground that sue did not care to tie herself up for a money consideration lo a man who would be in a dying condition during their married life. Others balked at this or at that till at last George had well nigh gone the rounds of the girls lie would care to marry. One he had not tried. She was I.ucy Ellis, an amiable, happy-go-lucky girl, from whose shoulders trouble rolled off eas ily and whose linancial necessities were such that she was quite familiar wil Ii liie pawnshop. To Miss l-'.llis George concluded to make a proposal, but. being somewhat discouraged in Iiis quest for a compan ion in Iiis trouble, offered her much better terms than any lie bad yet pro posed. Al'ler modestly telling her that he thought his income would suffice as well as a larger amount for tlie pur pose of ma king him forget what was coming lie promised lo settle Iiis whole estate upon her if she would marry him. To his surprise, she threw her arms about his neck rtk- said, witli tears in her eves: "We'll spend it all. And what will a lot of money be compared with the remembrance that we shall have at least 1 say." 1 a short time together?" "But." lie proie-icd. "what will you live 011 when I am gone' "Why. I won't be any worse off for money than I am now. will IV" She looked up at him from a pair of Ingenuous, childlike eyes through her tears, and I lieu and there Iiis heart was won. "Very well." lie said, "lie It ns you Nevertheless it was not as she said. for George on I lie day of the wedding. I unknown to her. placed St00.000 in trust for her. lie did not give it to her direct, for lie had no confidence In her holding on to it. Since she took no part whatsoever the manage jinent of his aIIairs, lie was enabled to do this without her discovering that it had been done George found in l.ucy Ellis just what he needed. Perhaps she was too sympathetic, but sympathy in dealing with a sufferer is a good fault, and George would have rather had her sympathetic I ban cold. Hut Iiis swell ing grew larger ami pained him. and lie needed devotion as all invalid rath er than a spender of money. I-'or awhile after I heir marriage they spent Inotiey like water. in I Ids George found his wife all that was to lie de sired. Hut his sufferings gradually in creased, and lie was obliged to give up pleasure seeking. We can never tell for what persons are fitted until tlicy are tried, l.ucy. of whom her husband had expected nothing as a nurse, rose to the occa sion. Her sunny disposition proved a great comfort to Iii in. When he was much cast down, instead of speaking words of encouragement which she did not feel she wept with him. This did him more good than telling him what lie knew was false, and lie would say to himself: "Poor little girl! She suf fers for nie more than 1 suffer. 1 must brace up for her sake." George's condition grew gradually worse, lie would not have doctors to visit him. because lie had been told that I hey could do him no good. Dr. Franklin came to see him occasionally and was now and I lien called in to effect some temporary relief. George asked liiui one day to I el I him the na ture of Iiis disease, but the doctor con vinced him that it was better for him to remain in ignorance of it. One day Mrs. Underbill received a note from Dr. Franklin asking her to bring her husband to his oilice. Many cures were being announced for differ ent diseases by investigators, but most of tliein excited wild hopes only to be crushed. A cure for her husband's dis ease had been discovered which—at any rate, in certain cases—gave temporary relief. She might tell this to the In valid, giving him to understand that the relief was expected to be only temporary. Any relief was accepta ble. and. ordering a car. George was carried to the physician's oflice. Dr. Franklin covered his neck with sheet lead with a hole In It large enough to admit the swelling. What else he did George could not see, and, as for Lucy, she did not understand what it meant. The doctor was bring ing to bear upon the swelling some in visible current, but what it was she could not know without an altogether uncommon scientific knowledge. Several visits were made to Dr. Franklin's oflice. and the swelling on the patient's neck began to recede, and after a while it became diminutive. Then one day Lucy took up a morning newspaper and read to her husband an item of news It was tin announcement that the radium rays had been brought to bear on cancer and that the disease had been in certain cases undoubtedly interrupted. Whether or not radium would permanently cure it the opera tors had not considered themselves prepared to announce "Lucy." said George, looking at his wife with hope lighting his eye. "I shouldn't wonder if that's what my trouble Is. and Dr. Franklin Is apply ing radium in my case." "I'm sure it is!'' cried the wife with that impulsive embrace which was her treatment for both good and had con ditions. George was to visit the doctor that, morning. When he and his wife reached the office Lucy said to the physician: "Doctor, my husband has cancer, and a cure has been found." "Who told you thatV" "The newspapers." "Well," replied the doctor thought fully, "we are not. yet ready to an nounce that we have found a cure, but we feel very hopeful." "You menn you are certain, but you won't say so for fear of raising false expectations." "We're pretty well satisfied that ra dium is death to tlie cancer scourge." The Underbills left the doctor's of fice a happy couple. Their visits to the doctor were continued, and with the continuance of the treatment the swelling returned lo its original size. When it had almost entirely disappear ed Lucy sail I io her husband one day: "George, don't you think it time we were beginning lo get riij of some of this property ilial 1 married you to help spend We haven't, used half the income." "That's just, what I was thinking about. I fancy I can keep up the treatment as well in one city as an other. Suppose we go abroad':" "It's just the time of year to go, es pecially to I la ly." "We'll do it. l'.y the bye. sweetheart. 1 his discovery of radium as a cure for my trouble jusl en nie in lime to pre vent you having to spend our fortune alone." "It wouldn't have been half the fun. would il '.-" "I don't suppose it would." She gave him a kiss, after which lie wrote a note to a steamship com pany asking for roiuu on the vessel to sail that, day two weeks and to his hanker for a letter of credit. They sailed in February for a trip to Naples and other Italian cities, and before their departure so great had be come the confidence by the medical profession that efforts were being made to preserve tile radium producing grounds in the United States for the benefit of the sufferers of the dread dis ease, which lias always been one of the scourges of humanity. And now George and Lucy Underbill are touring in Europe, but the money they were married purposely to devote to keeping up the husband's spirits'Is not needed. They have nil the com forts and luxuries they Require with out encroaching on their jeapltal. Drs. Williams & Gross Veter.nary Surgeons Ohas. Willi wins, D. V. S. Herman Gross, 11. V.
