"What's in a Name?"

tory mid etymologists tlnd It difficult
to account for It, but the generally tie
epted theory Is that It Ih another form
f the lnuiKlna.
Thcro was Imeglne of Limbing In,
1400 and various other Instances of
the use of the name by German worn
go. How England secured the name
of Iniogene Is open to speculation. It
iH probable that Shakespeare's herolno
vsliibllHhed her vogue there, though
etymologists contend that It was used
by British ladles before the master
playwright wrote his version of the
old story of the deserted and betrayed
wife, which he so strangely places at
the court of the last Independent Brit
At any rate, Shakespeare culled bis
'Heroine Itnogene, thus establishing her
irogut forever. The name Is still u
.treat favorite In England, but has
a-tr had widespread popularity here,
to; perhaps, to Its rather poetic asso
ciations. Also, It usually degenerates
'tutot 'Oene. A few devoted admirer
of Shakespeare (and others unwitting
ly) give the name to girl babies in
.baptism, probably Ignorant of the fact
that as Ygnoge, the name was once be
stowed on a daughter of Emperor Pan
'flrasus of Greece, and the wife of
Brutus, according to Oeoffry of Mon-
month. She was mentioned In Anne
of Brittany's funeral oration In IBM.

lieve that we actually see the thing
ItFClt', whereas, as a matter of fact, all
that our eye takes In Is the light which
la rellected from the object. This light,
by reason of the uirylng shadows mil

what the object looks like which Is
the reason that the same thing will
often appear to be different to a num
ber of persons.
UcratiM' light Is a necessary adjen t
of "sight," It follows that the absence
of light or darkness will nullify tho
sight mid make the things which sur
round us totally Invisible. Without
light, our eyes are useless, and even
the light Itself Is scarcely more neces
sary than reflection, as may be proved
by looking Into a mirror and then Into
a sheet of plain glass. .The former, on
account of the reflection obtained by
the coating of mercury at the back, re
flects the light. The latter reflects
only a portion of It from Its polished

murmured out loud: "It's tt great Ufo
If you don't weaken."
"It, sure Is."
Flop turned her bobbed head In as
tonishment. It was evident that sho

plant. A young man, n tow-bended

sitting beside her, looking absently at

matter-of-fact tone, "Shall we go,

she stammered: "Rut Jim was going

"That's all right," said the young
,man. "I guess Jim has gone. There
are only two couples left. He prob
ably looked for you, but wc arc pretty
well screened In here."
He disappeared to get her wraps.
Almost Immediately the young man
returned with her wraps and they
were soon briskly walking on the
street. Flop said not a word for two
blocks. Then suddenly she murmured:
"It's rather late, Isn't It?" '
"Jtather," said her companion.
Another block . . . silence.
"Don't you think this Is rnther Im

"Jtather," was the nnswer.
Two blocks' .' ' . silence.
''That 1s my house. The one with

"May I see you again?" ' ,
"Yes ... but why?" "
"I know . . . but . . . you're
so different from the other girls . . .

softlike . . . the others are too
noisy . . . always on the go . . .

As soon as she had climbed Into her
soft bed she knew the reason why.
What had he said? He liked 'cm tired

too noisy . . . funny . . . and she
had said Friday night. What would
she. do? He would find out Friday
that she was noisy, always on the go,
too. She burled her face In the pillows
It was seven o'clock Friday night.
Flop was putting the finishing touches
to her hair In front of her bedroom
mirror. "Dam I" she said to the re

Suddenly she had an Idea. Her eyes
fejl on n pair of small, pretty pumps
lying under the bed. She would put
thorn on because they made her feet
pinch anil her head ache.
At eight o'clock a rosy young lady
answered the tinkle of the door bell.
She was sorry she was tired, she ex
plained to the young man on tho door
step. She had walked a long way that
afternoon and her feet were sore and
she had cut her finger on the bread
knife. They went Into tho parlor and for
an hour sat soberly talking. Of course
she couldn't play with the sore finger,
nnd dancing was out of the question.
Finally she could stand It no longer.
Murmuring an apology, she rushed out
of tjie room with amazing swiftness
for one with sore feet.
Two hours later, they were still
dancing to the tune of the vlctrola.
She had not been able to remove the
bread cut . . . It was a natural oc
currence, but she had changed her

he blurted out, "do you know what a

Cocker had, for u wonder, slept
through It. Usually she rose, lighted

In glass tumblers.
Intend of being grateful that she

she heard of It the next morning.

George W. Carmack Started
Stampede Into the Klondike.
White Men Had Mined Thero Before
Him, but Credit for the Great
"Discovery" Is Hl3.
Hold dust worth 1 .'10,000,000 hns
been taken from tho creeks of the
Klondike. Although twenty-live years
have elapsed since the first discovery,
that event Is recalled by the death
recently of (Jeorgo W. Carmack, who
panned the first high-grade gravel
from ISunnnxn crock. The details of
the discovery nro related by a writer
'in the Engineering and Mining Journal-Press
or New York. Carnmck was
'n fisherman, with nn Indian squaw,
(it ml maintained a small trading post
.6n the Youkon twenty miles above tho
'Crossing. He was not the first to find
gold In the vnlleys of the Klondike,
ifor Robert Henderson preceded him,
but he started the stampede that led
to the development of the Yukon terri
tory. At that time Carmack was fish
'lug for Mtlinon at the mouth of the
Klondike, where It Joins the Yukon
anil where Pirwson now stands. Two
miles ,up the valley the Klondike Is
Joined by I!on.nza creek. Cariiinck
happened to be short of fresh meat
so he went with three Indians, one of
them a brother-in-law, on a hunting
expedition. At thnt time Honanza
creek was known as a likely place for
moose, therefore he went thither. He
knew that Henderson and three other
white men were mining on Gold Bot
tom, on the other side of the, water
shea, so he crossed tiie divide with
his Indian companions to see what the
others were doing and to sell them
'some of the fresh meat that he and
the Indians had obtained.
' Henderson nnd his partners were
not getting much gold nnd Carmnck
soon returned to the camp on Bonan
za creek. Having seen the mining
done by tfre four men on Gold Bottom
he was prompted to do n little pros
pecting himself, nnd almost at the
first try found gold on the rim of the
bedrock projecting above the wnter of
Honanza creek. This rich spot, recog
nized as "tho discovery," proved later
to lie only a patch twenty feet squnre.
Carmack recorded his clnlm and the
three claims located in the names of
his friends, Skookum Jim, Indian Fete
and Taglsh Charlie. A quiet "rush"
began. David Mackny, Daniel Mc
(Jllllvray nnd Harry Wnugh were the
tlrst to- start. Each of them made n
fortune. The Information .'did not
reach the "outside," ""meaning .the
state, until the best ground had been
Staked ; '"those" who came to Dawson
with the stampede at the end of 1807
Shd In the spring of 1808 found that
tney were too late.' They had to buy
claims or work for wages. On July
14, 1807, the steamer Excelsior
reached San Francisco with the tid
ings of a now Eldorado; In proof
thereof she brought half a million dol
lars In gold. This was the first of
many treasure ships to enter the Gol
den gate like Spanish galleons of the
Woman Found Treasure Trove.
Burled treasure has been found In
France by a New York woman. She Is
said to be the first person to discover
important burled treasure In France
since the war. When spading In the
region of the devastated town of Hat
ton Chattel, which she is rebuilding,
she turned up a pot containing 400
rare coins. Many of the coins In the
pot dated before the discovery of
America, most of them being from the
Fourteenth and Fifteenth centuries.
Some of them bear the effigy of the
duke of Lorraine, who defended north
ern France before the Swedish Inva
sion In the Fourteenth century. All
burled treasure belongs to tho govern
ment, but the finder in tills case will
be given 10 per cent of Its vulue,
which It Is understood she will donate
to the Metropolitan .museum of New
York. The discovery Is the most valu
able find of Its kind recorded in
More Light With Less Current.
The old subject of keeping electric
lamps and rellectors clean is again
brought to our attention by Ward Har
rison and J. It. Colvllle, In a recent
Issue of Electrical Review and In
dustrial Engineer. Among the Items
discussed by these authorities ore the
extent und causes of lighting deprecia
tion, vulue of light wasted, and sys
tematic maintenance. Experience has
shown thnt In many factories more
than 30 per cent of the light paid for
Is allowed to go to waste. One-half
to two-thirds Is being thrown away
through luck of attention to simple
maintenance requirements. In a plant
where the entire time of one man Is
required the cost of cleaning open re
flectors should not exceed 3 cents
