Description of Prehistoric Methcd of
Obtaining Water Supply.
One of the prehistoric methods used
In securing a water supply In ectlons
where It was impossible to secure It
from natural sources, or where It be
came necessary lo live on elevated
territory for defense was by the con
struction of dew ponds. These dew
ponds were made by hollowing out
the earth for a siiaoe far In excess of
tht apparent requirements of such a
pond, then thickly covering the whole
of the hollow with a coating of straw.
The si raw In Its turn was covered by
layer of veil chosen, finely pud-
llod clay, and the upper surface uf
the day closely strewn with stones.
Such a pond wili gradually heroine
filiej with water, the more rapidly the
hrgor It Is, even though no ruin may
fall. During the warmth of a summer
day the earth will store a considerable
amount of heat, while the pond, pro
tected from the heat by the noncon
ductlvlly of the straw. Is at the same
time chilled by the process of evapora
tion from the puddled day. The con
sequence Is that during the night the
moisture of the comparatively warm
air is r ontlensed on the BtuTace of the
cold clay. As the condensation during
the nights Is In excess of the evapora
tion during the day, the pond becomes.

We live in deeds, not years; in thoughts, not breaths;
In feelings, not in figures on a dial.
We should count time by heart throbs. He most lives
Who thinks most, feels the noblest, acts the best,
And he whose heart beats quickest lives longest;
Lives in one hour more than in years do some
Whose fat blood sleeps as it slips along the veins.
Life is but a means unto an end; that end,
Beginning, mean, and end to all things-God.
The dead have all the glory in the world.
Running a Newspaper.
Running a newspaper is just like
running a hotel, only different. When
a man goes into a hotel and rinds some
thing on the table which dies not suit
him. he does not raise hades with the
landlord and tell him to stop his old
hotel. Well, hardly. He sets that
aside and wades into the dishes that
suit him. It is different with some
newspaper readers. They find an article
occasionally that does not suit them
exactly and, without stopping to think
! it may please hundreds of other read
j ers, make a grandstand play and tell
I the editor how a paper should bj run
I and what should be put into it, but
. such people are becoming fewer every
Visitor's Speech Dealt with Frankly
by Youthful Critic.
Princess Lwoff Parlaghy, tho Hun
garian painter, was asked In I'tiliaflei
phla to address a women's club on
portrait painting a subject that
would have much Interest, for the
artist has done portraits of the kaiser,
the czar and others celebrltteu. 1
Hut she declined to deliver the ad
"1 cannot speak Impromptu," she
said, "and what Is mca wearisome
than a speech road from notes?
"A friend of mine oiu.e spoke before
a class of school children on literature,
fihe had spent a week writing' the
speech. She read It to the little ones,
as she hoped, with great success.
"Hut the next day she heard that a
boy, on being asked by his mother
what had happened at the school, re
plied carelessly: ,
"Oh, nothing much, except a lady
talked to herself on a piece of paper.' "
Napolccn I. Had Cosily Coronatisr j
Robe and Throne.
An old Parisian firm which deals In
pmoroldeiies and suppllrd artistic
needlework to the court of Louis XVI
Is still In possession of the account:;
of former centuries, and an Inspection
of these books reveals some Interest
ing facts. Napoleon I. was economical
as compared with the Empress Jose
phine, but his bills were considerable.
The embroidery on his coronation
robe cost 10,500 francs, and nn em
broidered coat cost 3,500. This coat
became too small for him after lie had
worn it a year, and he ordered pieces
if cloth to be Inserted at the seams
und covered wllh embroidery.
The bill for tho first Napoleon's
throne amounted to 53,970 francs.
The outer drapery of purple velvet
trimmed with gold lace cost 10,200
francs. The red velvet panels were
itrewn with embroidered golden bees
at five francs apiece. Tho Inner
irapery of blue satin, with gold lace,
was 9,000 francs, and the gold em
broidered stripes for the Inner trim
ming cost 8,500 francs. The em
broidery on tho blue velvet cushion
cost 3,020 francs, and the foot cushion
1,200. In addition there were 1,050
bees embroidered on the panels of the
canopy at a cost of 5,250 francs.
Writer Declares That Out of Action
Would Come a Better Race.
In many respects the orientals are
our nutlihesl-j, and If our ideals, prin
ciples, and institutions are more
heiieftclcnt, we are under obligation
10 present them. There should be no
collision between the Mongol and the
Anglo-Saxon races, but instead there
should be a fusion. Out of this fusion
there should emerge a better race.
We can learn much from the various
people of the orient which would be
beneficial to ourselves, and while we
receive from them' we are able to
contribute the one great principle of
the Anglo-Saxon race, namely, liberty.
Kvrry race that has come Into power
and prominence has stood for some
great, overmastering Idea. That for
which we stand and which Is the great
touchstone of our great national life It
liberty. It Is for our nation, as the
great western wing of the Anglo-Saxon
race, to join In the extension of this
principle, and also to bear the mes
