And Uio Lord Mild, "Ihiist tliott eaten

"Tito woman whom thon gavest to bo

ho was driven out of tho garden and
hi ilcHCondnutH, cvrti to tho present gen

In audition to bearing tho conueiiitencca
of hia etror Adam has been denoutieed
through all miccecding centurierf for hia
cowardice and lack of gallantry in try
ing to throw tho blninotinontho woman
wlio had been given to bo with him
'Ood'a firrtt, best gift to man."
Wo aro glad, therefore, thatcven after
0,000 year of nnmerittd condemnation
which tho memory of our great pro
genitor has had to bear tlicro has arisen
one person who dares to hnenk for him.
And it is nil tho more fortnuato that
that person la a woman a member of
tho sex whom Adam's words, by a
wrong interpretation, wcro held to havo
maligned. This person is Mrs. Caroliuo
F. Corbin, n distinguished authoress. In
her latest book olio says of Adam's plea:
"Tliis is not tho expression of cow
ardice, but of tlto innocent nnd native
belief that anything which Hits lovely
being, fresli from God's linml, proposed
must bo right, nnd right or wrong
must bo douo. It is n trait which has
com down in unbroken continuity of
inherittuico to tho latest born of Adam's
The thought is n new one, but thcrd is
not timan nlivonnd capable of appreci
ating Mrs. Corbin's argument who will
not indoreo it. Whero is thoro a man to
day, barring n few crusty old bachelors,
who would not have dono tho samo thing
under liko circumstances? Tho woman
was beautiful, tho applo was good, nnd
Adam was an unsophisticated, ingenious
young man unaccustomed to tho littlo
social arts and deceptions that tho
daughters of Mother Evo havo learned
from her example.
Wo insist that Adam is vindicated,
and that Mark Twain's tears over his
grave wero a deserved tribute. Now,
let tho building of his monument pro
ceed. And let it bo recorded thereon
that "ho was a kind, loving and obedient
husband." Troy Times.

A 'Wonderful Timekeeping Autnnintqn.
Ono of tlto most wonderful timekcen
crs known to tho horologist was mado
in London about 100 years ago nnd sent
by tho president of tho East India com
pany as a gift to tho emperor of China.
Tho enso was made in tho form of a
chariot, in which was Boated tho figure
of n woman. This figura was of puro
ivory nnd gold nnd sat with her right
hnnd resting upon iv tiny clock fastened
to tho side of tho vehicle. A part of tho
wheels which kept track of tho flight of
timo wcro hidden in tlto body of ft tiny
bird, which had seemingly just nlighted
upon tlto lady's finger.
Abovo was n canopy so arranged ns to
conceal ft silver bell. This bell wns fit
ted wit It n miniaturo hammer of tho
Sitino metal, nud although it appeared to
havo no connection with tho clock regu
larly struck tho hours nnd could bo
mado to repent by touching it diamond
button on tlto lady's bodice. In tho char
iot nt tho ivory lady's foot tliero was a
golden figuro of n dog, nnd nbovo and in
front wcro two birds apparently flying
beforo tho chariot. This beautiful ornn-
tnent was mado almost entirely of gold
nnd wns elaborately decorated with pre
cious stones. St. Louis Republic,

a Biglt of regret. When ho had got hia
things all out, ho turned to tho work
men, who wero waiting to begin tearing
down tho building, uud remarked iu a
rather sarcastic tone:
"Well, boys, you may havo nil you

Tho workmen began on tlto old floor,
which had ben worn into hollowB by
itgc. It had not been replaced biuco it
was originally laid.
Ono of tlto men ripped up n board with
hia crowbar, raising n cloud of dust.
When ho got it out of hia uvea, ho saw
Botnelliing ninny in tho crack.
Ho picked it up, and it proved to bo a
dime. Further invodligatlou revealed
tho fact that tho ctaek wan lined with
This was an incentive to tho workmen.
They plied their crowbara with remark
able energy for men poorly paid. In this
instance they wero amply rewarded.
In every crack of tho lloor nilver dimes

of nearly half n century ago. The men
gathered tho coin in haudfuls.
Tho cigar dealer, in Bpeaking of tho oc

lost through carelessness and a poor
lloor cvcit'in 35 years.
"But it won't happen again," ho said.

It is curious how fuluio jprents nre oc
casionally prefigured by homo anticipa
tory token which, unliko presentiments
und premonitory dreams, makes perhaps
no impression at tho time on those whom
Iloro is n ntrilcing example. Ono of
Charles DickensVons, from Bomo childish
oddity of expression in his largo, won
dering vyc9, was given by his father tho
very uniiiuo sobriquet of tho "Ocean
Specter," by which ho was always called.
Tho grent novelist never know of tho
weird Bignilfeanco his playfully bestowed
appellation was to bear, for ho himself
hnd been nearly two yeara in his grave
at tho timo his littlo "Ocean Specter,"
then u lieutenant in tho roynl navy, died
and was buried at tea. London Tit-Bits.
Tlicro nro certain explosives of high
power which, when heated, burn quietly
if freely exposed, or if confined explode
only at tho spot whoro heat is applied
without tho wholo mass taking part in
tho explosion. Nitroglyccrol, dynamite,
gun cotton, picric acid nud tho now
German military powder aro example?
This in paid to bo because they aro bat
conductors of their own oxplosivo wave.
If, however, tho samo substances aro
subjected to n violent shock by tho ex

of mercury fulminate, tho shock seems
to nllect all tho molecules of tho explo
