There is danger in tho tonguo that

confession of failure nnd magnifying
of tho ofllco of tho tonguo seem exag

and think of tho Bins and cruolttes of
human speech. Tho careless words

'S A Rejected Wovel.
Before ho had achieved famo tho
French novelist Xavler do Montepln,
D concluding a long nnd elaborate
tale of adventuro took it, full of hope,
to a publisher, who promptly declined
It on bvon tho, .most advantageous
farms, to tho wrltepB poignant raortl
ifaUon. Twenty years afterward" this

feands a sensational story. Snoot hono
serials which were tho delight of grl
Jgttcs, offering any price within rea
son. "'Wcll," said Do Montepln, "I
Will oblige you, but my terms must bo
omowhat heavy, I want 1,000." Aft
r many protests it was paid.
In telling tho story Do Montepln
eed to add, "Tho best of the business
Was that it was tho very same story
ivrhlch ho had previously rejected nnd
Wflilch I had In various directions en
4eavored in vain to dlsposo of."
A Curious Tree.

Weakest at midnight In wet weather

Wanted All Good Pcotilc Nice.
Those who havo complained that vlr

branded ns cynics or, worse, ns people

true story of a little girl may come as
consolation, for "out of tho mouths,"
Little Alice had been put to bed and
told to say her prayers. "O God," she
prayed, "make nil the bad people good
and make nil the good people nil the
good people nil tho good people

A "Lot" of Land.
A Hartford lawyer is of tho opinion
that tho term "lot" aB applied to a par
cel of land is an American product, not
derived from any other uses of the
word. Ho says: "I havo been reading
up somo of tho old histories of my
Btatc, of Long Island and other colo
nial sections recently, nnd I And that
tho terra 'a lot of land was originated
in the colonies; that It is today consid
ered nn Americanism and stands apart
from other uses of tho word. It origi
nated from tho custom of dividing
grants for townships, etc., into parcels
of land nnd then numbering each par
cel, putting tho numbers into a bat or
whatever was used and then having
them drawn out; by thoso who were to
occupy tho land. Each man took the
parcel corresponding to his number, so
his land came by lot literally, and
hence tho use of tho term. This, I pre
sume, is ancient history, but perhaps
ancient enough to havo been forgotten
by most real cptato dealers and other
people who deal in land and not lan
guage." t

What shall become of a man's prop

of support or to leave a quarrel on tho
hands of his heirs, It is entirely within
society's right to retitrlct his license in
that particular. Tho whims of testa
