Frightened Hippopotamus Nearly

' A hippopotamus Is not tho most de

mals had been bedded down for the
night, the keeper saw his charge
locked up In his sloeplng quarters, a
compartment adjoining the swimming
pool. After the hippo was locked up
attendants cleaaed out the swimming
foot and filled It with fresh water, all
ready for the animal to tumble Into

sleeping den. Satisfied that every
thing was all right for the night, tho

Sometime later In the evening a too
watchman heard the hippo making
queer nolaes as If it wanted to get up
and take a bath, so the watchman let
the animal out. It plumped Itself
down In Its bath with a snort of relief
and went to sleep again there with

Still later the hippo keeper returned
and decided to take a plunge In .the
hippo's tank. He stripped and dived
In. Then followed an exciting strug

water. First the keeper was on top
of the hippopotamus, trying to get a
footing so that ho could Bcramblo out
of the tank, then the hippopotamus
was on top of the keeper. Each was
terribly frightened of the other. One
dived, the other dived. The keeper
yelled for help and the hippo bel

DISCORDS THAT MAR LIVES

circumstance. Here Is a person af

of all of them there Is no conclusion.
One Is uppermost one day and an
other the next. One has no compass;
no guiding star. One has no compass;
with another, and he finds his life a
round of discords.
There are many of that sort They

the discords referred to. They may

matter, they are discords, and many
a life persists In keeping them up.
Of course, that Is not the way of the
true life, which is to take all these
discords and blend them Into a har

By avoiding our low standpoints, our

It would seem from theso experi
ments that man is indeed superior to
all mechanism; with the very slight
exception that he always wastes ener
gy during the first five minutes of
work before regaining his equilibrium.
It would seem that Monday's hu
man labor Is the most Inferior and
Tuesday's the most superior, owing to
the curious action or Sunday as a rest
day; the Monday lassitude of the
French worklngman Is proverbial.
And It Is found that the workman
who does not rest gradually loses his
energy, and this Is now a subject of
keen Interest among scientists.
tarty Christians in New York City.
Tho Methodists of New York city
over a hundred years ago started
their first organized charity. Tho
record of this early venture is pre
served In a volume In the library of
the Methodist Historical society. On
November 12. 1808, at a meeting bold
in the school at Worth and Hudson
streets, the Assistance Society for Re
lieving and Advising Sick and Poor
Persona in the City of New York was
organized. The city was divided Into
districts. At first there were four,
then five and six, till finally the num
ber became seven. These were called
walks. In 1809 the distribution of
food, clothing and fuel began. Cath
arine Graham of 81 Church street, to
whom $1 was given, was the first to
be aided. During the war of 1812 the
society purchased soup tickets from
the Humane noclety at $3 a hundred,
and distributed 80 loads of wood. In
December, 1812, 3,499 "suffering indi
viduals" were helped, and the total
for the first four years was 28,000.
Colors Give Us Their Secrets.
The famous blue color given to the
porcelain manufactured at Sevres has
long been believed to be the result of
a secret process, and many legends
exist about It It has, however, been
recently shown that It is a mistake
to suppose that Sevres blue cannot be
produced elsewhere. As a matter of
fact. It Is produced In many French
potteries, where sufficient care Is ta
