The Oldest Joke
It will be difficult to discover an old
er practical joke than that of the cop
persmith and the maker of brazen im
ages for the temple of Osiris which is
embodied in Egyptian inscriptions dat
ing from the reign of Menes founder
of Memphis who ruled over 7IHJ0
years ago According to ancient rec
ords there dwelt between these two
craftsmen a quiet man whose desire
was for peace and who was sadly dis
turbed by the noisy occupations car
ried on by his busy neighbors He
therefore asked each of them to say
for what sum they would change their
dwellings This they did Each calcu
lated the amount required and he be
iug satisfied paid it over to tlieui
Now lie asked of the coppersmith
where is your new dwelling I
have taken that of the maker of im
ages was the reply And you
queried the quiet man of the latter
whither goest thouV To the house
of the coppersmith
This is one of mauy tales told in all
ages which are woven into myth and
legend and differ only in local color
Bees Recognition of Landmarks
There can be little doubt that so
intelligent an insect as a bee has a
long memory and a keen eye for land
marks This is testified to by the
fact that almost all bees fly by day
whereas such creatures as moths of
no fixed home or occupation fly in
the darkness A bee would be lost at
midnight because it could not recog
nize its surroundings
Correspondent Wants to Know
Heres a funny thing One fly can
spoil all your food One toad can eat
51940 worth of flies in a season
These figures from the secretary of
agriculture We have S000000 flies
in our kitchen during an ordinary
summer day How many toads should
we keep
Alarming Symptoms
My wife has taken up the use of
Indian clubs what do you think of
that doctor Well really if my
wife began the use of any kinds of
clubs I should consider them alarm
ing symptoms

follows the use of Foleys Honry and

Courtesy in Young Girls
Young girls are apt to be somewhat
thoughtlessly discourteous and are
quite oblivious of the irremediable
evil often wrought by want of thought
Such girls should bear in mind the
