the arrest of himself and deputies by
Mexican officials while pursuing the
Southern Pacific train robbers on Mexican

self and party were arrested and their
arms and horses taken. At the expira
tion of fourteen days they ware released,
and for the first time were informed that
their arrest was on account of their be

quest for a return of their horses and

Schools in harmony With Present Social
Conditions ?" The condition of society

Then each indiudual community was

Great changes have been wrought in so
ciety, chiefly by inventions and divisions
of labor. These have necessitated
changes in the school svbtem. Now it

The tendency of schools at the present is
away from the objective education of the
past. The remedy is in manual training.
The substance of real practical know

MCCARTNEY'S TRICK EXPOSED.
How to Split a Sheet of Paper.
We saw an article the ether day which
relates how "Pete" McCartney, the "King
of Counterfeiters" did a smart piece of
crooked work. "The government had
permitted the publishers of 'Heath's De
tector' to print plates therein, from the
genuine plates, bearing mutilation marks
consisting of heavy dark lines across the
face. McCartney bought up these detec
tors, cut out the plates, split them and
pasted them on bank n'-tc paper, and
then snbiected them to pressure. Then he
appended the signatures."
Mauy people who have rot seen this
done might think it impossible; yet it is
not only possible but extremely easy.
Get a piece of plate glass, and place it
on a sheet of paper; then let the latter be
thoroughly soaked. But the best plhn is
to paste a piece of c-lolth or strong paper
to each side of the sheet to be split
When dry, violently and without hesita
tion, pull the two pieces asunder, when
part of the sheet will be found to have
adhered to one and part to the other,
Soften the paste in water and the pieces
can be easily removed from the cloth
The process is generally demonstrated as
a matter of curiosity, yet it can be utiliz
ed various ways. If we want to paste in
a scrap book a newspaper article printed
on both sides of the paper, and possess
only one cop', it is very convenient to
know how to detach the one side from
the othT. The paper when spit, as may
be imagined, is more transparent than it
was before being subjected to 'the .opera
tion, and the printing ink is somewhat
duller; otherwise the two pieces present
the appearance of the original if again

"The waiters here complain that some
of the people that come in here, where
they can get a plate of roast beef, tnrkey,
lamb, or most anything else for twenty
cents, expect as much attention and ex
cellence of food as they would require at
no town swell resorts, where they think
nothing of paying 1 for dinner, wltli at
least a quarter for the waiter."
The speaker was the proprietor of a

Kiitries Found In

In many parish books, about .'500 year?

was wipped, iiijd." This was double the
usual turiir, which is represented by

Mr. Itibton Turner thinks race had a
good deal to do with beggary. When you
take away a man's means of life he must
either starve or rob or beg. The oldest
natives o Great Britain were short, dark
people Basques, say some, Esquimaux
say others; the tall, light haired Gjiel beat
them out from almost everywhere, except
part of South Wales. Then the Cymri,

Picts, and coming southward were met by
the tide of Saxon, or, as the new lights
prefer to call it, "English" invasion, and
turned aside into Wales. What tho round
skulled Gael had done to the short skulled
people who had preceded him the Saxon
did to the Gael. He took his tilled land
from him; in those days it was not much,
nine tenths of the island being forest and
marsh, and he gave him no chance of set
tling near him and bringing in some of
the wild country.
That was not done till later, when the
monasteries (true agricultural colonies)

Some thins About Walnuts.
The walnut is indigenous to Upper
Asia and in the mountainous regions of
Persia is found growing wild. It vflta
known to the Romans as Juglans lleia
or royal tree of Jupiter. It was in; in
duced into Italy at the beginning of tiie
Christian era, and gradually spread over
western Europe. It was introduced into
England many centuries ago from Fraree,
which country was then called Gaul, and
some authorities say the word "walnut"
is a corruption of "Gaul-nut." (Webster
gives the derivation, however, from an
Anglo-Saxon word, "wealh hnut," from
"wealh" a foreigner, a stranger, and
"hunt," a nut). In Europe it is called
simply "walnut," and the name English
walnut used in this country was bestowed
by the colonists of Virginia to distinguish
it from the nr.tive American black wal
nut. The tree seems to flourish every
where. It thrives In rich and poor land,
on mountain and in valley, in rock and
barren soil where hardly anything else
can be grown. But in deep soil with a
moist bottom the English walnut grows
luxuriantly and yields large crops at a
comparatively young age. American
A Relic of Ilarbarism.
It is many years since the traveler who
was advised to go and see India remarked
that he did not care to do so, as the gov
ernment had abolished hook swingingand
widow burning. But some of the inhabi
tants of that vast peninsula are still given
to a strange custom, of which little or
nothing is known to Europeans. It seems
that in the nizam's dominions there is a
caste in which this practice prevails.
When any of its members die a flag is at
tached to a bamboo and the bamboo is
given to a man to hold over the corpse of
the deceased. Then, having retired to a
convenient distance, the men of the caste
open fire on the flag, probably by way of
showing their distress and of helping the
soul of the deceased on its journey to some
other world. But not everybody is a
William Tell, and sometimes it happen
that the man holding the flag is sho.
This actually occurred on a recent occa
sion, and notice was taken of it by the
nizam's government. In The Tarida, cr
government gazette, it is 'made known to
all concerned that no flag held over a
corpse is to be Hied at in the future. St.
Noticeable 3eteoroloj;ical Phenomena.
The meteorological phenomena accom
panying the building of railroads in
Mexico are receiving the attention of
scientific men in that, country. Recent
serious damage done by washouts on the
northern section of the Mexican Central
road was due to wirterspouts bursting ou
the track, and it is a curious fact that
waterspouts seem to be attracted by tbe
iron track and telegraph wires. Engi
neers on the line of the Guadalajara
branch of tbe Mexican Central railway
have noted that as fast as the construc
tion advances rain follows, and they hold
that this is due to the largo lot of steel
raiLs on Hat car3 which are carried for
ward as fast as the work of construction
permits. The most noticeable fact is that
the country is dry in advance of the con
struction trains, and also behind them
for many mile3. Kains beat down, as de
scribed, in bucketfuls just where the steel
rails are, but only in circles a few rruies
in diameter. Frank Leslie's.
