A DARWINIAN THEORY
Why the Drowning Mnn Alivaya
TltroviM Lp HIm Ilniuls
The usual idea that a drowning man
is stretching out his hands for aid or
catching at straws is not altogether
satisfactory A possible explanation
has lately been suggested and this
supposes that the drowning mau losing
all his acquired habits and even some
of those inherited from more recent I
parents in his terror goes back to the
Instinctive movements of his arboreal
ancestors and the movements of the I
drowning man are those of a frighten- I
ed ape seeking safety by clinging to I
the nearest tree
The movement Is certainly instinc
tive for it can only be eliminated by
considerable training and voluntary
efforts and yet it Is fatal to the indi
vidual for the specific gravity of no
human body Is so nearly that of water
that the removal of the arms from the
supporting fluid at once sinks the face
beneath the surface In cases of so
called cramps the victim often a
highlj trained swimmer generally
throws up the hands but these cases
are probably due to heart failure and a
similar movement takes place on land
when the subject receives a fatal heart
wound and It is even a common ex
pression of shock or astonishment The
ordinary movements of walking or run
ning would keep a mans face above
water but these curious climbing
movements of both hands and feet
make floating impossible and are re
sponsible for many deaths by drown

How lhe Pnvinjy Value of Asphalt
Was Brought to Notice
All forms of bituminous pavements
whether manufactured from natural or
artificial asphalt are In fact artificial
stone pavements The industry started
with the use of the natural rock as
phalt from the mines in the Val de
Travers Canton Neufchatel Switzer
land The mines were discovered In
1721 but it was 1S49 that its utility as
a road covering was first noticed The
rock was then being mined for the
purpose of extracting the bitumen con
tained in it for use in medicine and
arts It is a limestone found impreg
nated with bitumen of which it yields
j on analysis from S to 14 per cent
it was ouserveu tnat pieces ot rock
which fell from the wagon were crush
ed by the weight of wheels and under
the combined influence of the traffic
and heat of the sun a good road surface
was produced A macadam road of as
phalt rock was then made which gave
very good results and finally in 1S1 1
a portion of the Rue Bergere was laid
in Paris of compressed asphalt on a
concrete foundation In 1S5S a still
larger sample was laid and from that
time it has been laid year by year in
Paris From Paris It extended to Lon
don being laid on Threadneedle street
in 1SG9 and Cheapside in 1S70 and in
successive years on other streets Mu

No Limit to Xew Ideas
There never has been a time when
the individual has stood for so much
as he does at present There has
never been a time when Individuality
and personal initiative brought such
amazing rewards There never has
been a time when the individual could
or did exert so much influence as at
present There Is no individual today
so insignificant that if he became the
medium of a new or potent ideal he
would be prevented by uncontrollable
conditions from expressing his idea
and reaping his just reward
In all ages up to this man has been
owing to his limitations of phjsical
force a plaything of conditions a slave
of his environment Skill and intelli
gence were but two of the factors in
his progress bounded and restrained
by limitations to their employment
Now however with universal energy
at the disposal of each individual this
terrestrial sphere scarce puts bounds
to his field of Influence Cassiers

Frnlt Acids Kill Germs
A writer in a scientific periodical
states that it is not generally known
that fruit acids are germicidal The
juice he says of limes and lemons
is as deadly to cholera germs as cor
rosive sublimate or sulphur fumes or
formaldehyde or any other disinfectant
It is so powerful a germicide that If
the juice of one lime or lemon be
squeezed into a glass of water that is
then left standing for ten or fifteen
minutes the water will be disinfected
It makes little difference where the
water has been obtained or whether it
has been boiled or faltered As boiled
or filtered water is nQt always obtain
able this is worth remembering
Wliat You Put In Your Month
It is through the mouth that most
malignant germs find their way into
the body and therefore one would
think that it was hardly necessary to
warn people against the risks they are
running in using it as a sort of third
hand One would imagine that hardly
any one needed cautioning against
holding money with the lips and yet
an immense number of otherwise thor
oughly cleanly people indulge in this
dirty dangerous practice

THE RUG DESIGNERS
PATTERNS DESCEND FROM PARENT
TO CHILD IN THE ORIENT
HoiiNOiiH WJiy Animal Fiji lire Arc
Ilnrely Seen on IurMlan Uukh

una Their Lmc The Uukm of Slvn
The designs of eastern rugs are often
the spontaiuous outcome of the fancy
of the weaver Sometimes they are
handed down from one generation to
another In some cases young girls are
taught the design by an adult who
marks it in the sand At other times a
drawing of the rug Is made on paper
the Instructor showing her pupils the
i arrangement of every thread and the
color to be used When all this has
been done the pupils must make the
rug without looking at the drawing
Persian rugs excel those of other
countries in artistic design as well as
In harmonious coloring The Persians
seem to have a natural Intuition In the
use and blending of different shades
and In the designs that contain these
certain colors they achieve the happiest
results It is really wonderful what
exquisite fabrics these people born
and reared in ignorance and poverty
produce
The designs in Persian rugs are gen
erally floral and in some districts es
pecially Fars the women weavers In
vent the designs varying them every
two or three years The Mohammedan
religion does not allow any direct rep
resentation of animal forms conse
quently rugs woven under its influence
take floral geometric and vegetable
forms The Shiah sect of Moslems
however numbering about 13000000
of whom 8000000 are Persians do not
regard representations of animals as
unlawful Hy the industry of this sect
and that of infidels and of all who dis
regard the law of the Koran animal
forms are seen on some Persian rugs
The prayer rug was evidently Invent
ed for the purpose of providing the
worshipers with one absolutely clean
place on which to offer prayers It is
not lawful for a Moslem to pray on any
place not perfectly clean and unless
each one has his own special rug he is
not certain that the spot has not been
polluted With regard to the purity of
the place of prayer Mohammedans are
specially careful when making their
pilgrimages the rugs which they take
with them lnving been preserved from
pollution by being rolled up until the
journey is begun or until the hour for
prayer anive It does not matter to
these followers of Mohammed how
unclean a nig that is on the floor may
bo because over it they place the pray
er rug when their devotions begin
The Turkish rugs made at Sivas are
ahays woven of wool and almost ev
ery hamlet carries on the industry of
wearing in the homes There are no
factories the young girls and women
doing the work here as In other parts
ot Turkey Sivas rugs are In most
cases small measuring about eight by
four feet but in these years larger and
more attractive rugs are being made
Even the poorest families have fine
rugs for they regard them as valuable
property to be sold only under the
pressure of great extremity The weav
ers are so frugal in their manner of
living that their daily earning of lo to
19 cents is sufficient to supply their
wants Their food consists usually of
rice and crushed wheat with occasion
ally a small piece of mutton
Smyrna is only a mart for the sale
of comparatively inferior rugs that are
made in the interior from the coarse
hair of the Angora goat These are
woven in irregular designs and al
though not artistic are largely sought
as coverings for the bare floors and to
add warmth The weaving of these
rugs is crudely done by girls and wo
men Sometimes the loom is primitive
ly constructed from the trunks of trees
The designs are very simple and have
either been handed down from earlier
generations or are supplied from the
city
Yuruk rues are so called from a band
of nomads who dwell among the moun
tains of Anatolia They have large
flocks of One sheep and weave rugs of
firm even texture The colors are very
good the field often of dark brown or
namented with large designs
About 200 years ago small embroider
ed rugs were largely made in Persia
chiefly at Ispahan These were prayer
rues and on each of them near one
end was a small embroidered mark to
show where the bit of sacred earth
from Mecca was to be placed In obe
dience to a law of the Koran that the
head must be bowed to the ground in
prayer this was touched by the fore
head when the presentation was made
and so the letter of the law was carried
out The custom prevails The Persian
women who weave the finest prayer
rugs seldom weave any other kind of
rug Rugs Oriental and Occidental
