ENGLISHMAN AND TURK.
air tho Former Obtained Some Cash
Orrcil for ! Latter.
An Englishman Iibb just bad a very
carious experience, Bays tlio London
Telegraph. Ho had lent n Turk somo
money, but tbo inan Wbb unnble to
ly nnd on his deathhed laid a par
ttcular charge on his wlfo nnd chil
dren to meet the debt. Tbo eldest son
was making arrangements according
ly, but also died, nnd bo, too, begged
his family to pay ibo money hb soon
B they could.
, Ono day tbo Englishman received n
Tlslt from n member of the family,
who said that thcro wcro now four
members of it left, nnd they were
ready to pay, but one of tbo dnughtcrs
refused to Bubscrlbo her share, dcclar
lag tbnt tbo money was never really
lent The others, however, wished to
settle the matter, and if tho English
man would como to the bouso it would
be arranged. "But," tbo Turk ndded,
If you boo thero Is any difficulty Just
say that you leave It to bn settled In
tbo next worldl"
Accordingly tbo Englishman went to
tho house at tho appointed tlmo nnd
met the fnmily In tho presenco of n
wollnh, the ladles being behind n
screen. Tho mollnh began by asking
If ho had truly lent tho money, bow
much It wns nnd If ho would take nny
leal. Ono of tho women behind kopt
saying It was nil n fraud. Tbo English
man then declared that bo bad lent the
money, that ho had not asked for It,
that they had Wold him to como and
get.lt nnd if they did not want to pny
It bo would leave tho matter to bo set
tled in tbo next world.
Thcro wob dead sllenco for a few mo
ments, nnd then tho women called
their brother, and each paid her share
without n word. It seems tho prospect
f meeting tho father in tho other
"world without haying carried out bis
Irishes was too serious n thing to face.

VIRTUE8 OF LIGHT LUNCHE8
American Aeatene Dae la Vmrt to
the MIdilny Repaf.
A great many peoplo feel they havo
done their wholo duty by sound hy
giene when they denounco tbo "quick
lunch" of tho American business world
as tho sum of nil gastronomic iniqui
ties, But in bo far ns the quick lunch
is n light lunch, nnd it usually .s this,
it may bo a blessing in disguise. In
fact, an observing foreigner lays much
of tho neutcness nnd business energy
of Americans to tho fact that for tho
moot part the American business nnd
professional man oatB lightly, oven if
hurriedly, nnd drinks but llttlo nt tho
midday meal; henco bis mind ia clear,
ho is not sluggish and ho is nblo to do a
good dcnl between 1 o'clock and 0.
As a contrast the foreign observer
mentions tbo heavy midday eating
habits of certain European countries,
notably Germany, nnd to that bo at
tributes tho lethargy that is calling for
all tho highest efforts of the best minds
to counteract In this ho Is in' har
mony with an American specialist,
who in decrying u heavy midday meal
said that "tho plan of eating a heavy
meal at noon nnd returning to work
almost directly from tbo dinner tablo
explains tho prevalence of dyspepsia
in countries not enjoying tbo long aft
ernoon recess of tho tropica." Since
tho light lunch nnd tho quick lunch do
not fit in with this criticism tboso who
havo blamed our national dyspepsia
on tho "busy man's bite" had better
look a llttlo further into tho mnttcr.
Terhnps wo do cat too much, ns cer
tnln dlntotlc specialists tell us, but It
looks as if we wcro slowly approximat
ing, tho country over, to nn ideal dietet
ic system, for Americans, which makes
tho lunch tho slightest meal and the
evening meal tho most substantial
meal of the day, whatever it may bo
called. And if the quick lunch of tho
business world has had any effect ,in
this direction it is not tho unmixed ovll

. THE FIRST AUTOMOBILE.

Few, perhaps, aro awnro tbnt tho
first automobile, considered lu tbo senso
of a vehicle containing within itself
powers of locomotion, of which thero
is nny nuthentlc account wns n self
moving shrlno of Bacchus.
This was tho invention of Heron of
Alexandria, who describes it In his
work ou automatic mechanism. Tho
shrlno in question was mounted upon
two supporting nnd two driving wheels.
On tho n'xlc of the driving wheels was
a drum, about which was wound a
rope, which passed upward through
tho Bpaco on ono sldo of the shrlno over
pulleys and was fastened to tbo ring of
n pondorous lead weight, which rested
upon n quantity of dry, fine snnd. Tho
escnpo of this sand through n small
hole In tho middle of tho floor of tho
comparfocnt containing it allowed tho
lend weight gradually to descend and
by pulling upon the cord cnused tbo
shrlno to raovo slowly forward in a
Heron describes tbo method of ar
ranging nnd proportioning tbo wheels
in case It wns desired that tbo shIno
move in n circular path. He also shows
how tho shrlno enn bo constructed to
movo in n straight lino nt right nngles
to each other.
Officials of the patent offico overlook
ed tho device of Heron when they
granted patents on slot machines, not
withstanding that previously Thomas
Eubank, commissioner of patents in
1850, illustrated nnd described Heron's
lnvontion. The mechanism of tbo lat
ter Is almost identlcnl with tbnt in tho
modern devlco nnd simply serves ns nn

The grocer, needing some money,
presented his bill,
"Surely," said tho man, looking in

"there must bo some mistake In this."
"No mlstnko nt nil, sir," nnswercd
tho grocer belligerently. "I nm pre

"Oh, I'm not kicking," said the man,
