In the royal manufactory of pottery
at Meissen, Snxouy. the work was for
merly carried ou wltti the utmost se
crecy to prevent :he processes from
becoming kuuwo elsewhere. The es
tablishment was a complete fortress,

Inspector, was sworn to silence. This
injunction wns formally repented every
mouth to the superior otlleers employ
ed, while the workmen had constantly
before their eyes In lnrne letters tho
warning motto, '"Be Secret Unto
Death." It was well known that any
person divulging the process would be
imprisoned for life in the castle of
Koenlgstelu. Even the king himself
when be took strangers of distinction
to visit the works wns enjoined to se
crecy. One of the foremen, however,
escaped and assisted In establishing a
manufactory In Vienna, from whlcb
the secrets spread all over Germany.

Th Salt Charm Failed.
Some three years before the Franco
German war broke out Count Secken
dorCf accompanied King William I. on
his visit to Napoleon III. and wns
present at the celebrated dejeuner giv
en In the Pavilion de Piano at Fon
talneblenu. King William, who was
sitting next the empress, was asked
by her to pass the salt, and In comply
ing with this request he threw a little
salt over bis shoulder. Upon the em
press exclaiming, "Wby do you do
that?" the king explained that in his
country it was the custom to do so
when passing the salt to ward off bnd
luck and any chance of a quarrel. The
empress in a prettily turned speech at
once replied. "But surely there Is no
danger of anything interfering with
our friendship." In less than three
years the Germans bad crossed the
Rhine. London Spectator.
Why Not Pats tha Plata?
They ought to piss the plate at
church weddings. It comes natural to
do it In church, and to do so would
add a pretty and useful employment to
the duties of the ushers, who always
have a little spare time before the
bride arrives. And, really, getting
married is more expensive than ever,
and, though wedding presents are ex
cellent in their way, what the young
people usually need the most is cash.
Instead of the list of gifts which the
newspapers sometimes print we should
rend. "The collection yielded $4,000,
000." That would be nice. It Is much
easier to store and care for money
than plate and glass! And money al
ways tits and there is no such thing as
an embarrassing duplication of dollars.
H Saved tha Patent Office.
When in the war of 1812 the British,
who had taken Washington, trained
their guns upon the patent otuee, Dr.
Thornton, throwing himself directly
before the guns, cried:
"Are you Englishmen or Goths and
Vandals? This Is the patent oQlcea
depository of the Ingenuity and inven
tions of the American nation, in which
the wbolo civilized world is Interested.
Would you destroy It? Then let the
charge pass through my body."
And the building wns spared. Twenty-four
years afterward, however, It
was destroyed by fire, together with
everything In It.
The Harm of Damp Houses.
It is dangerous, to health hud even
to life in a damp, moldy house or one

ngo the London Lnncet in on article
on diphtheria traced the disease" in
certain eases to tho presence of cer

seemed to be breathed into the throat.
Remember, one of the best disinfec
tants Is lime. Moldy cloths, such as
shoes and other articles that are unfit
for use, should be destroyed at once.

"Are you foud of music?" asked a

French theater managers in the
eighteenth century bad worse evils
than picture bats to contend against.
Marie Antoinette, who was short even
according to French standards, set the
fashion of high coiffures, and ultra
fashionable women prided themselves
on measuring four feet from their
chins to the tops of their heads.
These structures took about six hours
to erect, the hairdresser mounting a
ladder In the process. Some coiffures
were almost as broad as they were
long, with wings sticking out about
eight inches on each side of the bead.
For the "frigate" coiffure the hair was
rippled in n huge pile to represent tho
waves of an angry sea and surmount
ed by a fully rigged ship. As a con
sequence of these monstrosities dis
turbances in theaters occurred almost
daily until an ordinance wns issued
against the admlssiou of women with
high coiffures to the floor of the house.
Yet He Meant Well.
Just as the train was leaving the
Fifty-eighth street elevated station a
man who had got off there hurried
along the platform and spoke to a pas
senger sitting by an open window In
the smoking car.
"Quick!" he cried. 'Tlease hand me
that package. I left it on the seat
when I got out Just now."
"Sure," snld the passenger, picking
up the bundle and tossing it out of the
"riey. there! What are you doing
that for?" demanded tho wrathful, red
faced man sitting next to him.
"You double dyed idiot, that package
belonged to me! It was $15 worth of
laces and ribbons I was taking home
to my wife!"

Perfumee In Ancient Days.
Old as the history of the world Itseli
is that of the queen of flowers. The
auclent Greeks and Romans reveled In
roses. They were used lavishly at their
feasts. In the time of the republic the
people bad their cups of Faleruian
wine swimming with blooms, and the
Spartan soldiers after the battle of
Clrrha refused to drink any wine that
wns not perfumed with roses, while at

The Exclusiveness of Caste.
An English olllcer who some years
ago was wounded lu n battle In India
and left lying nil uight among the na
tive dead and wounded tells this story:
Next morning we spied a man and an
old woman, who came to us with a
bnsket and u pot of water, and to
every wounded man she gave a piece
of Joaree bread from the basket nnd n
drink from her water pot. To us she
gave tne same, and I thanked heaven
nnd her. But the Soobnhdnr was a
high caste Kajnut. nui. as this worn
an was a Chuiuar. or of the lowest
enste. he would receive neither v.atei
nor bread from her. I tried to per
sunde him tn take it that he might
live, but he said that In our state, with
but a few hours more to linger, what
was n little more or less suffering t'
us why should he give up bis fate
for such an object? No; be preferred
to die unpolluted."
The Origin of Oxygen.
That eminent scientist Lord Kelvin
maintained that, all the oxygen In the
atmosphere probably originated from
the action of sunlight upon plants
When our earth was a globe of hot
liquid It contained no vegetable fuel
and probably no free oxygen. But as
it cooled off plants appeared on Its
surface, and these began to evolve
oxygen through the medium of the
sunbeams. Upon the oxygen thus de
rived we depend for the maintenance
of life by breathing. When we burn
coal or other vegetable fuel we use up
oxygen, and it Is to plants again that
we owe the restoration of the oxygen
thus lost to the air. If they failed to
keep up u sufficient supply the atmos
phere would gradually part with Its
oxygen, and the inhabitants of the
earth would disappear in consequence
