you that your eyes are now cured
But there is one more test it would
be as well to apply Here he held up

Well judge I was drunk last night
but it does not often happen I have
lived in this ward nearly all my life
and any one can tell you that
Oh lived here all your life have
you Do you know any one in the

Railroads Adopt Novel Plan to Move
Freight on Slippery Tracks
This is a winter of much snow not
only here but abroad and the railroads
In some sections are having a hard
time in moving freight and passengers
On some of the roads in Germany
they turn their locomotives into sleighs
when the roads become impassable

for wheels placing runners on the
front ones as shown in the accom
panying illustration This has been
of great advantage in transporting
freight when much snow is on thr
ground and has resulted in a big sav

wheels of the locomotives are covered
with chains in order to make a start
Why Hindoos Dont Go M2d
Why are there ho few lunatic asy
lums and so small a proportion of In
sane persons in India That Is a ques
tion which many a traveler has won
deringly asked The Hindoos regulate
their lives entirely in accordance with
their religion that Is their working
eating sleeping as well as what we
usually regard as our -life In the re
ligious sense of the word Everything
Is arranged for them and they follow
the rules now just as they did UOUO
years ago This constant observance
of the same rules for twenty centuries
has molded the brains of the race Into
one shape as it were and although
their rites are queer enough yet there
is but an occasional example of that
striking deviation from the common
which is called Insanity in countries
inhabited by the white race They are
fatalists too With them it is a case
of what is to be will be carried to
the extreme This has In time given
them the power to take all things
calmly and so freed them from the
anxiety that drives so many white
man into the lunatic asylums
Thought It Was the Monkeys
A diamond necklace was possessed
by Mine eoflrey de St II Hare the
wife of the famous French naturalist
It was one or the chief est of her con
tcntments as Hindoo women aptlj
term their jewels One day madame
missed her necklace There was a ter
ribie turmoil In the house and all the
servants down to the foolish fat scul
lion were suspected but in turn proved
their innocence At last it was remem
bered that M de St Hilaire had a pet
monkey and on a search being made
in the glory hole of the quadrumaue
the precious bauble was discovered hid
den away with a white satin shoe sev
eral cigar ends a pencil case and a de
composed apple The renowned uat
uralist calmly observed that he had
frequently seen the monkey playing
with the necklace Why did you not
take it from him indignantly asked
his spouse I thought it belonged to
him replied M de St nilaire He ev
idently thought there was nothing un
natural in an ape possessing a diamond
necklace as his personal property
The Monasteries of Tibet
Every Tibetan family is compelled
to devote its firstborn male child to a
monastic life Soon after his birth
he child is taken to a Buddhist mon
astery to be brought up and trained in
priestly mysteries At about the age
of eight he joins one of the caravans
which travel to Lassa There he Is at
tached to one of the local monasteries
where he remains as a novice until he
is fifteen learning to read the sacred
books and perform the religious rites
of his faith The firstborn son being
thus sent into the church as we
should say in this country the second
becomes the head of the family
and marries Unlike some other semi
civilized races these young Tibetans
have the right of choosing their own
wives Nor can a Tibetan girl be
married off by her parents without her
own consent The curious custom in
regard to the eldest sons results of
course in nearly every Tibetan family
acquiring the odor of sanctity num
bering a monk among its members

Slow but Inexorable Justice
In October 1900 Pietro Giaconi and
Marie Bonelli were tried at Rome on
a charge of sextuple murder by poi
soning committed thirty one years be
fore In England Euireue Aram was
hanged for the murder of Clarke four
teen years after the offense A man
named florae was executed for the

century no less than thirty five years
after the offense There is also the
well known case of Governor Wall
who was executed in 1S02 for a mur
der committed in 17S2 Sherward was
hanged at Norwich for the murder of
his wife after a lapse of twenty years
But Sir Fitzjames Stephens recalls
what is the most remarkable case of
all He prosecuted as counsel for the

acquitted London Standard
Prohibited Coffe Houses
So many coffee houses sprang intc
existence in England during the reinn
of Charles II that he entertaining a
belief that many political intrigues had
their beginning in those places issued
an edict ordering them to be closed
In this proclamation the following
words occurred The retailing of cof
fee or tea might lie an innocent trade
but it was said to nourish sedition
spread lies and scandalize irreat men
It might also be a common nuisance
Phyllis Harry is the most conceited
man I ever met Maud What makes
you think so Phyllis Why he first
asserts that 1 am the most adorable
woman in the world the most bcauti
ful intellectual and in every respect
paragon and then he wants me to
marry him
It has been said that life is made up
of three things heredity environment
and the will If the heredity and en
vironment of the child are what they
should be the will will choose the right
and do it
