Sense as Applied to An cient Superstition Concerning "Blue Monday." I happened to find a most entertain ing old book In the free library a dic tionary of superstitions. It has three big volumes, all crammed with the fears and beliefs of the human race. Just to sample some of them that ap ply to Monduy, here are a few: "If things commence to go wrong on Monday they will go wrong all the week, but If you have good luck on Monday you will keep It up." "Tfl V r r tit 11a nn f nnln r If vrtiv nnn help It." (This Is congenial advice and easily followed.) "If you meet a cross-eyed person on Monday you will not hnve good luck till Thursday." "If the sun sets clear'Frlday night It will rain before Monday night.'' "It Is a bad sign to lose a .tooth on Monday." (Yes, or a hand or a leg either, I should say.) "If you lose your temper three times on Monday you will have a great fnm lly quarrel." (This bit of sagacity has an excel lent chance of being true, one would think. Still, there may be some men who could get away with three blow outs and have no comeback.) To add our own observation to the collected wisdom of the ages your Monday Is neither more or less than what you choose to make It when you get out of bed In the morning. You can make It lucky or unlucky If you wish. Philadelphia Bulletin.

Tho prize, however, was not .to he handed to the winning Jockey except on condition that he wore deep mourning for the deceased for two years after the raco. The municipality accepted the eccen tric bequest, and those singular races have been held regularly ever since. Felicity a Necessity. The presence of a wlso population Implies the search for felicity as well as for food; nor can any population reach Us maximum but through that wisdom which "rejoices" In the habi table parts of tho earth. The desert has Its appointed place and work the eteruul engine, whose beam Is tho earth's axle, whose beat Is Its year, and whose breath Is Its ocean will still divide imperiously to their desert king doms bound with unfurrowable rock, tad swept by unarrested sand, their powers of frost and fire; but the zones and lands between, habitable, will be loveliest In habitation.
