the Pilgrim on his frail bark to the haven of rest and reward.

Bacon's Rule for 8tudy.
Lori Bacon laid down the rule that
In our Btudles we should select those
thlngfi that please us most, because we
then develop our talents, and all the
things that displease us most, because
then, we discipline the mind. He In
sisted, furthermore, that the .latter
studies are the more Important of the
two. U would be well to have these
old truths recalled, revived and re-
taught. They should be put back not
only Into our public schools but Into
our national life.
Vastnesa of the Ocean. .
To stow away the contents of the
Pacific ocean It would be necessary
to fill a tank one mile long, one mils
wide, and one mile deep every day
for 440 years. The figures of the
other oceans are In the same startling
proportions. It would take all the
aea water In the world 2,000,000 yean
to flow over Niagara.

Argument for Vegetarianism.
Vegetarianism has been claimed as
a part of the wisdom of the east, and
It clearly has its uses, for two cen

weight to almost a third, became
strong, cheerful, adtlve and healthy.'

Valentine and removed to Lincoln,
where he is now engaged in the prac
tice of tils profession.
He was a delegate to the last demo

them for the Chinese market. The

Baron Oustave de Rothschild had a
pleasant mixture of caution and wag

Somewhat Rough on the Fish.
The Japanese have a novel way of
keeping fish fresh for use. You go in
to the restaurant and -pick out your
own fish in the tank. If there is more
fish than you want the chef cuts off a
piece to fit and returns the rest to the
tank to swim about till wanted.

When Walls Are Damp.
The walls of cupboards and piaiUlssv
are often damp 'on wet or sultry days
without apparent reason when other
sections of the kitchen wall will be
comparatively dry. The best device for

Is to make it Impervious to moisture
by applying a varnish of one part
shellac and two parts naphtha.
