Wlngate's Arithmetic and I Raider's
Arithmetic were succeeded by Pike's
Arithmetic. This had .10:1 rules to be

It is the most barren schoolbook I
have ever read. These printed arith
metics were not in common use. Near
ly all teachers had manuscript "sum
books," from which the scholars copied
page after page of "sums." too often
without any explanation uf the proc
ess, though there were also many and
long rules, which helped the penman

A Lucky Device That Brought Millions
to Its Inventor.
"Tho luckiest Invention In history,"
said a patent olllelal, "was that of
barbed wire. It came about by acci
dent. "Isaac Ii. EUwood was the inventor
of barbed wire, in his youth he lived
in I)e Kalb, III., and, having a neighbor
whose pigs trespassed on his garden,
he put up one day a wire fence of his
own make. This fence had barbs and
points on it. It was queer and ugly,
but It kept out tho pigs.
"It was a real barbed wire fence,
the llrst In the world, and there wore
millions of money In It, but youug Ell
wood ami his friends laughed at its
"One day two strangers saw this
fence, perceived how well It kept out
the pigs realized how cheap It was
realized, In a word, Its value and or
dered several tons of It from Ellwood.
Furthermore, they contracted to sell
for a term of years all the barbed wire
he could produce.
"Ellwood borrowed $1,000 and set up
a little factory. A few years later on
he had paid back that loan and was
worth a small matter of $1.",000,000
besides." Now York Press.
Tho Water Lily.
Almost everybody has observed tho
strange characteristic of the water lily
bud opening Its petals at sunrise and
closing them again at sunset. It was
for this reason mainly that the an
cients held the water Illy sacred to the
sun. Pliny says: "It is reported that
in the Euphrates the tlower of the lo
tus plunges Into the water at night, re
maining there till midnight and to such
a depth that it cannot be reached with
the hand. After midnight It begins
gradually to' rise, and as the sun rises
above the horizon the tlower also rises
above the water, expands and raises
Itself some distance above the element
In which it grows." It was also
through this peculiarity that Ilancar
vllle proved that tho Egyptians con
sidered the Illy an emblem of the
world as it rose from the waters of the
The expression "scot free," which Is
In use every day, harks back to tho
times of Scottish romance and tragedy
so luminously described by Sir Walter
Scott In "The Antiquary" and "Rob
Roy." In these stirring tides we are
told of one form of Scottish trials giv
en certain offenders of Justice. Ho
who had broken the law was divested
of all of his clothing and placed at
a certain distance from archers who
had bows and arrows ready, waiting
the command. "Fire!" When the com
mand was given, the man under Indict
ment would begin running anil the
archers firing, and If in running this
gantlet none of the arrows hit him ho
was allowed to go scot free. Exchange.
