Perk was lennlng over Miss Mny.
When one Is six feet two and one's

flwept his face nnd a painful expres

beneath It. Miss Mny spoke prettily.
"Oh, Mr. Perkins, It must bo won

Perk wns afraid to contrndlct, but
denied fame bravely. Miss May was

Ted hns told us nil about you, nnd,"
Bhe looked sweetly up, "personally, I

Perk gasped I This was Ted's work I

Thnt night words burned between

"It's just n llttlo lcsson tho college for

"Thanks," said Perk bitterly, "espe

the boys laughed and Perk reddened
Tho next day Perk took Sally canoe

were already applying first nnmcs.
"What a wonderfully steady stroke

development In Germany under Mnxl
mlllnn, when It had n steel bow of
Immense power. There Is one In thu
Boston niuxemn with n bow of over
two and ono-half Inches wide and near
ly three-fourths of an Inch thick. In
central Europe, France nnd Spain the
bow was not used much save by the
people who came under Mohnmmedan
Influence. The cross-bow being a much
easier weapon to use, It was forbidden
lti England to anyone not having a
certain Income, in order thnt tho yeo
men nnd common people should be
forced to use the long bow, which In
military purposes wns vastly superior
on account of the rapidity of Its fire,
although outranged by tho crossbow.
It had one grcnt advantage of light

A recently deciphered papyrus
shows n pretty revolutionary spirit
among the Egyptians In the year 2000
B. 0., or nearly 4,000 years before
the French thought of an upheaval.
The period Is between the old and tho
middle kingdom, and an Egyptian
sage plaintively Invites the king to
snve his people In telling him of the
conditions of the country. He tells
him that "thnt Is past which yester
day could be seen. The lnnd turns

While In Africa recently Mr. A. 8.
Le Souef, director of the Taronga

country. Ho also observed the body
of a small antelope about 14 feet up
a tree. The enrenss of the antelope
had been put lit this position for
sufo keeping, by leopnrds. "These
members of the cat family nre hnnd
roine, and extremely active," says Mr.
Le Souef. "They play about In clear
places In the forest, tenr up the

They are most active, but they do

suitors tiresome, but Celesta thought
only of Alda, lived only for her, and
when one dny he lay dead In the bot

mourned more sincerely If It had
been a cherished member of the fam
