THE COLD WAVE.

from Batnul r' Dully '
The temperature has evidently started
In to break all provi > UR records this
winter and if the start ia an indication
of what IB to follow during the time this
auction usually experiences ita coldest
wonthor it may bo taken for grunted
that the record will bo badly loft in the
raoo. Thursday night was generally
considered sufficiently cqld for all prac
tical purposes when the mercury
dropped to 13 below /.OTO , but when this
morning's record showed a minimum
temperature of 28 below the zero point ,
it was notice that the previous night's
work of the frost king WOB simply a
starter. The maximum 6r highest tem
perature for the 24 hours ending at 8
o'clock this morning was four dogreoa
below y.oro and the weather has wormed
but Hlightly , if any , during today. The
coldest weather last winter * was during
January and then It did not attain tbo
degree of coldness reached last night in
fact , it wan probably the coldest night
in several years and may have broken
the record for this early in the winter.
At Omaha It was 12 below /.oro yes
terday , the lowest point reached in that
city for two years. The btutlon there
recorded a temperature of 20 below ,
February 11 , 1800 , which was a record
breaker , nnd binco 1800 the coldest December -
comber day was in 1802 , when the mer
cury went to 14 below on the 2lth. (
The temperature during the past 30
hours has raised merry Ned with things
freoK > iblo that were exposed to any con
siderable extent and the plumbers have
boon kept especially busy thawing out
pipes , stopping luiikH and making other
necessary repairs. VogutablrH , canned
goods nnd other articles that had been
torod away in places reasonably POCUTO

taiioos and in sumo oases the cellnia

THE COLOSSUS OF RHODES.
Our < > ( tlic Ancient Sovoii Wonder *
of the World.
The ancients .succeeded In mnklng
that alloy of copper which Is known us
bronze. Among the .seven wonders of
the world wua the famous Htatue , whol
ly inndo of .bronze , historically known
IIH the colossus of Rhodes. It rcpn1-
Hcnted Pluuhus , rthe national deity of
the IlhodliuiH. It wns begun by Chares
n pupil of Lyslppus , the sculptor , nnd
WIIB completed by Laches 288 B. C.
The popular belief Is that It stood
astride the harbor of Rhodes , that It
was 105 feet high nnd that ships could
easily sail between Its legs.
Plltiy said that few men could clasp
its thumb. It was cast on metal plates ,
afterward Joined together , nutl this
process occupied twelve years. In the
Interior was n spiral stalrciise reachIng -
Ing Into Its head , and In a great mirror
auapuuded to Its neck were reflected
the const of Syria and the ships sailing
After It had stood for alxty-four
year * this colossus vraa overthrown by
an earthquake , and Its remains lay on
too ahore for 023 yearo that la , until
A. D. 072 when they wore aold by the
Saracens to a Hebrew dealer. The
original coat waa 300 talents say , ? C-
000.000 and It is not too much to say
that a similar image might be con-
utructcd now In one-fourth of the time
and at one-third of the original cost.
Rhodes , by the wny. must have had
colossus on the brain , for Pliny relates
that the port wns adorned with 1,000
colossal statues of the sun.
Meu'i Ilntboxe * .
"It might qcom , " said a trunk and
bng manufacturer , "that a man's bat-
box wns Just a hatbox ; but , as a mat
ter of fact , men's Imtboies arc made
In very considerable variety. They are |

of enameled leather as to material and

A QUESTION OF TEETH ,
Did the Immnrtnl Oeorice Wcnr Ar-
tlflclnl or Natural Onmf
"George Washington' * fnlao teeth ,
which were supposed to have been
made of Ivory , are giving a certain
class of frenk historians about as much
trouble ns they must have given the
venerable patriot who wore them , "
nnld one of the professors of the
Bnillhrtonlau Institution to n reporter
"Many times n year for several years
this Institution has been celled upon to
produce these mysterious teeth for the
Inspection of persons who Insist that
they arc here.
"Our matter of fnct answer to these
Inquiries that Washington had no false
teeth , or at least if he did , that they
are not In the possession of the mu
seum , seems only to stimulate the In
quiring mind to protest our statement.
They proceed to give us authentic ac
counts of these teeth and always con
clude with expressing the belief that
they must bo In the museum some
"Where or how the Idea that Wash
ington had fnlse teeth originated Is an
unsolved mystery. That It Is firmly be
lieved by ninny Is certnlnly n fnct.
There seems to bo no authentic record
of the Father of Ills Country possess
ing Ivory teeth , and by a study of the
bust we have of him , which was mini"
but n few years before his death , there
Is no Indication of an Indentation alon-
the line of the gums such ns can be
notlcpd In persons who have had their
teeth drawn , even though they wear
artificial ones. However , we will coiiJ
tlntie to answer the same question In
the same wny probably many times In
the future , "
According to some biographers
Washington lost his teeth during his
service ns commander In chief of the
Continental army nnd had n set of
Ivory ones made. These teeth , It Is
nlso stated , gave him much trouble because -
cause they did not fit. Washington

Pnylnir n Creditor.
Like many another famous man both
before his time and since , Talleyrand
exhibited , at least In early life , a great
reluctance to settling with his credit
ors. When he was appQlnted bishop of
Aiitnn by Louis XVI. , ho considered n
fine new coach to be necessary to the
proper maintenance of the dignity of
that office. Accordingly a conch wns
ordered and delivered , but not paid for.
Some time after , as the newly appoint
ed bishop was about to enter his conch ,
be noticed a strange man standing near
who bowed continually until the conch
was driven away. This occurred for
several days until at length Talley
rand , addressing the stranger , said :
"Well , my good mnn , who nre you ? "
"I am your coachmaker , my lord , "
replied the stranger.
"Ah , " said Talleyrand , "you are my
coachmaker ! And what do you want ,
my coachmaker ? "
"I want to be paid , my lord. "
"Ah , you are my coachmaker , and
you want to be paid ? You shall be"
paid , my coachmaker. "
"Hut when , my lord ? "
"Hum , " said Talleyrand , settling
hlrnfielf comfortably among the cush
ions of his new coach and eying IIH !
coachmaker severely , "you are very
Inquisitive ! "
Salad Eating Good Seme ,
Even men are progressing gastronom-
Icolly. Scientific dietetics has at last
revealed to us the fact thai ; the woman
who cats salad on a hot day In July.
August or September Is displaying
nound gastronomic sense , says What to
Kat. The long haired dreamer In the
restaurant may have been nineteen dif
ferent kinds of a fool upon every other
proposition In life , but ho knew what
to cat on a hot day. The human ani
mal needs grass or Us equivalent In
summer. With their oil the salads sup
ply everything a man physically needs
In hot weather. All the civilized races
