Son Took the Wind
Out of Dadfs Sails
A shrewd old Yankee who had ac
cumulated a fortune by strict econ
omy, noticed his son had spent car
fare to go a few blocks and deemed
the expense a foolish one. That eve
ning after dinner he called Ills son
Into the library, saying he wished to
speak with him. “But first,’’ he said,
“I will turn down the light; we can
talk Just as well in the dark nnd It
will save gas.” As he went on ex
plaining the value of economy he
heard a fumbling nnd shuffling from
the direction of his son’s chair. Stop
ping his lecture lie inquired: “Sam,
what are you doing?”
“Father,” came from the darkness,
“I can hear just as well without ’em,
so while we are sitting here in the
dark I’m taking off my trousers to
save ’em."
For the rest of the evening econom
ics were not discussed.—Boston Tran
Great Statesman Had
Genius of Invention
Thomas Jefferson, signer of the Dec
laration of Independence and third
President, of the United States, was of
an inventive turn of mind as well as
being a fairly good violinist and some
thing of a scientist, remarks the De
troit News. On one of his tours of
Europe he was struck by the bad con
struction of the plowB In use by the
peasants of France.
The moldboard, a device above the
share to turn over the earth, he decid
ed, required redesigning. He spent
the greater part of his leisure time
for two years evolving a moldboard
that would be most effective.
Satisfied, at length, that he had suc
ceeded, Jefferson sent a plow equipped
with his new device to the Royal Ag
riculture Society of the Seine. A
medal which the society awarded him
—for the plow proved to be all he
had hoped for—followed him to New
York, and 18 years later, the society
sent him a specially made plow con
taining his improvement as a token
of appreciation for what he had done
for agriculture In France.
Doll's House for Czar
When n young man of twenty-four,
Peter the Great of Russia went to
Holland. He was working at differ
ent Jobs so as to be better fitted to
become ruler of Russia. In Utrecht
he saw a miniature doll^s house, fur
nished down to the minutest detail.
In the library wiere paintings two
Inches square. Cabinets were filled
with thumb-high porcelains from Ja
pan. Special carpets were manufac
tured for this house, and the linen was
woven In Flanders.
Peter the Great took n great fancy
to this tiny palace and offered any
price for one like it. The builder, a
retired merchant, would not accept
money for his handiwork, but offered
to make one as a gift to the young
czar. The llllputian mansion, com
pleted after 25 years of labor, is
now in the royal museum, Amsterdam,
says Mentor Magazine.
