BELINDA IS ENLIGHTENED
Importance of Right Start It Pointed
Out by Her Wite
"Isn't It funny," said Belinda, prac
tising at the piano, ‘‘you start playing
a thing wrong and you play It all
"Why, not at all,” said Belinda's
wise brother; "that Is true of many
thlngB besides playing u piano. Did
you never hear It said of a man who
seemed to be making heavy weather
of It in some undertaking, who seemed
to bungle and take wrong steps and
not to be sure of what he was doing,
who was struggling along and trying
hard hut not to very good purpose—
did you never hear It said of a man In
such case that he got In wrong?
"Why, certainly; everything de
pends on making a good, that Is to
say a correct start; on knowing your
ground and being sure of yourself, on
"That's one sort of good start. When
we say of a man that he had a good
start in life we mean that he started
with advantages, In favoring circum
stances of with friendly surroundings,
under conditions likely to promote his
success; but when we say of a man
that he made a good start we are
speaking of what lie did himself; wo
mean that he was alert and keen,
looking out for things, seeing that
things were right and making sure;
knowing the course, so that he could
keep in the channel and go ahead
without doubt or confusion.
"The ninti who makes a good start
can go ahead with confidence and cer
tainty, without fear and consequently
without danger of getting twisted and
tangled up on the way. It’s just the
same ns It Is with your practising.
Belinda didn't say whether she did
see or not; tint her brother’s dis
course having here apparently come
to a full stop, her fingers fell heavily
on the keys of the piano.
THE POETRY OF MOURNING
Interesting Effects In Jewelry Shown
During Mourning Days in Eng
Jewels nre always of Interest and
these days of mourning In London
have produced some very beautiful
articles of Jewelry for mourning The
agate and onyx are most prominently
used In this connection. The agate
Is a semiprecious stone, and n curious
mixture of minerals. It has a touch
of jasper, quartz, amethyst, chalce
dony, and cornelian In Its composition.
And It appears In several forms—in
clouded yellow, In a beautiful smoke
shade, and In the black variety
known as riband agate. These two
last are used for mourning. And the
onyx is really an agate, formed of
alternate stripes of dark and white
At a noted Jeweler's among some
exquisite ornaments were seen a
brooch In the form of a hollow circle
formed of onyxes set in small dia
monds; an Inch-wide, pliable bracelet
had one row of onyxes between two
rows of penrls, and an oval-shaped
clasp of diamonds. And best of all
was a long necklace, made of the
finest oxydlzed steel and jeweled at
Intervals with large, round amethysts
alternated with pearls, each pearl hav
ing a band of small diamonds. There
were other ornaments composed of
black enamel, pearls, and diamonds;
rind the neckchalns on view were
formed either of oxydized steel or of
platinum. Such things as thqse are
tlie poetry of mourning.
Writing in Bible Times.
Prof. Flinders Petrie says that there
is nothing abnormal, nothing to bo
questioned. In the general outlines of
the Bible story of the exodus. He
contends that the spread of writings
in those days has been enormously un
“It is my firm conviction," he says,
"that the Europe of a century ago was
far more brilliant than the eastern
world In Bible times. We have for in
stance, a papyrus containing a cook's
accounts scrawled In a very clumsy
hand, tvith the reckoning all wrong,
but It shows that even a common serv
ant of those days knew how to write.
We have another containing a petition
from a peasant. These things are ex
tremely important, as showing the
probability of documentary records of
a historical nature existing at the
Girl Guides in England.
Miss Agnes Baden-Powell, daughter
of Gen. Sir Baden-Powell, is president
of the B. P. Girl Guides, the object of
which is to teach girls "to do a good

taught gardening and housework, and
will be ready to go to the colonies
If needed, and are taught first aid to
the injured and other hospital work.
They are enrolled between the ages
of 11 and 18 and eight girls form a pa

POT OF GOLD IN CAVERN
Dream That Led Tennessee Man to
Rich Treasure Near Hie
Thomas L. Rodgers, who gives High
Point, N. C., as his home address, pub
lishes in the latest issue of the
Rogersville Herald at Rogersville,
Tenn., that be avers to be a true
story of how he recently discovered
$90,000 in gold coin in a cave near the
Clinch river in Hancock county, Ten
It was there he spent his childhood,
and he states that In a dream It was
revealed to him that in the rock house
cave in a lonely mountain spot near
his childhood home was stored a large
amount of gold. Rodgers tellR that so
thoroughly impressed was he with the
dream that he left his North Carolina
home and explored the cave. He tells
that in n great room, not unlike a thea
ter he discovered an old kettle turned
upside down. Scattered In the chamber
about It were old bayonets, ranteens
I and other evidences that It was used
as a place of rtfug" during the civil
war. Near the kettle was a skeleton
and on a piece of slate beside this
skeleton was carved this inscription:
"The first white man reading these
lines will find $90,000 In coin under
this kettle. Take this money, bury
this body in a lonely spot on top
of Copper ridge, and peace shall be
yours the remainder of your days."
Rodgers, who describes himself as
now an old man. avers ttint he carried
out the wish expressed on the inscrip
tion, and wlllt (he gold in his posses
sion returned to North Carolina. He
states that lie published tils experience
in the Rogersville paper that the
friends of his childhood might know of
his good luck, declaring he had been a
poor Inboring man up to that time.
IS OFF ON HIS CLAPPING
Unable to Achieve Proficiency In
Handclap Used to Summon Jap
"There is one kind of handclapping
l am not yet proficient. In,” said the
gray headed man. “I cannot call a
Japanese servant by clapping my
hands. I clap, but the servants do not
answer. A friend of mine has two
Japanese servants. When he wants
attention he claps his hands and one
of them appears. At his home yester
day 1 needed a sheet of paper to finish
a bit of writing I was working on in
my friend’s absence. I clapped my
hands, nobody came. I clapped louder,
and again still louder, but the Japan
ese persevered in their retirement. So
I substituted calling for clapping and
presently I got my paper. I told my
friend of my fnilure. 1 said I knew
the art of clapping well enough to
make my sentiments known at the
play, at a ball game and at a political
meeting, then why couldn’t I summon
’’ ‘You haven't got the knack,’ said
he. 'A white man has to associate
with orientals for months before he
learns the peculiar handclap that they
recognize as a summons.’
"Then he gave me a few lessons,
but I am sure that I have not mas
tered it yet and that If I should clap
again for a Japanese servant he would
let me clap till my hands were sore,
under the impression that I was kill
ing moth millers or rooting for a
World Growing Worse?
Three incidents between Old Traf
ford and town the other afternoon
(writes "II.”) went to re-enforce my
belief I hat the world is full of kind
people. The first was a matron fill
ing with nuts the pocket of a small
blind boy from Henshaw’s asylum.
The second was two policemen of Old
Tralford Mar doing their best to
help a Norwegian sailor youth who
was lost. One of the officers finally
accompanied the stranger to the ship
canal dock, a third of a mile away !
(where his boat lay), and left him
bowing his thanks with bared head. !
The third incident was on Chester j
road, just a little further down. A i
donkey, pulling a rather heavily laden
cart, fell on the setts, and could not
get up. The bricklayers on a scaf
fold near by found humor in the sit
uation, of course, but they also came
down from their scaffold, and four of
them picked up Neddy bodily in their
arms and set him on his feet again.
As 1 left them one had the donkey’s
face in his two morjtary ahnds, and
was saying, with a grin: “Well, ’ow
d’ye feel now, old feller?”—Manches
His Regular Nightly Go.
Judge Hilary C. Guest, the temper
ance advocate, said in a recent ad
dress in Cleveland:
"Alcohol makes some men pugna
cious. A man of this type was
drinking glass after glass of beer in
a saloon when his wife entered.
“ ’Jim,’ she said, wearily, ’it's after
11 o'clock, and you have got to get
up at five. Have you had your scrap
“ ‘Naw, Jim snarled.
“ 'Then get it scrapped and hurry
on home, do!’
” ’All right,’ growled Jim, and half
an hour later he staggered home with
the usual contusions and abrasions.’*
