WOUNDING A FIRE:
Am Odd Saweratltle That Date Back
to Aacleat Tlanes.
A curious modern attempt to ration
alize one of the oldest of superstitions
Is to ie found jo, Kipling's "Life's
Handicap'." There Mulvaney checks
the author from -stirring the fire with
Ortberis' bayonet on the ground that
fire takes the heart out of the steel.
The real reason is much more mysteri
ous. It was' one of the maxims of
Pythagoras -"not to stir the fire with
a sword," and to this day the wander
lug tribes of North America and of
northeast Asia hold .it a sin to take
up a burning ember for a pipe light
with the point of a knife. The ex
planation is undoubtedly given by Jo
hanues de Piano Carplni when he tells
us that one of the Tartar superstitions
concerns "sticking7 a knife into the fire
or in any way touching the fire with
a'kuife or even taking meat out of the
kettle with a knife, or cutting near the
fire with au ax, 'for they believe that
so the head of the fire would be cut
This' is evidently connected with the
ancient idea that 'fire Is a living crea
ture, a sacred animal, which must not
be wouuded by its human owners in
case, it .should be annoyed and deprive
them of Its valuable services. Is this
In any degree more irrational than the
belief still existent among housekeep
ers -that a feeble fire can be made to
burn up by laying the poker across it

The mites spend their entire lives on
the tea plant .and are never known to
attack any other leaf. They live in
families and societies on the upper
side of the full grown leaf and spin a
delicate web for a shelter.' They then
puncture the leaves and pump out the
liquid hi the plant veins.-
They seem to become very dainty lu
their tastes, for a sprinkling of mud
dy water over their floor and ea table
is the only remedy known to check
their ravages. Even r, this is not al
Tbe teabug Is still more destructive

THE ART OF TALKING.
That Aw Baaeatlal ts a Good
To be a good conversationalist you
must be spontaneous, buoyant natural,
sympathetic, and must have a spirit of
good wilt Ton must feel a spirit of
helpfulness and must enter heart and
soul Into things which Interest others.
You must get the attention of people
and hold it by Interesting them, and
you can only Interest them by a warm
sympathy a real, friendly sympathy.
If you are cold, distant and unsympa
thetic you cannot get their attention.
To be a good conversationalist you
must be broad, tolerant A narrow,
stingy soul never talks well. A man
who Is always violating your sense of
taste, of justice and of fairness never
Interests you. Tou lock tight all the
approaches to your inner self, 'every
avenue is closed to him, and when they
are closed your magnetism and your
helpfulness are cut off, and the con
versation is perfunctory, mechanical
and without life or feelings
You must bring your listeners close
to you, must open your heart wide and
exhibit a broad, free nature and an
open mind. You must be responsive,
o that a listener will throw wide open
every avenue of his nature and give
you free access to his heart of hearts,
"Can you point out a man who at

lieve that there is a man living, ex
cluding, for the looks of the thing, the
clergy, who lias not done something
to bring him here had he received his
just deserts. It is not always a great
crime that sends a man to the peni

This Is the West Indian way of pre
paring oranges for the table: .Peel the

as possible; then slice them off ail

seed, tough, stringy central part and
most of the Inner skin together and is
a much less tedious process than re
moving the skin by sections. Use a
very sharp knife, so as to make cleau
cuts and not crush the fruit

A little girl went for the first time to
church with her mother. All went well
during the service, but the child grew
uneasy during the sermon, which was
a long one. The mother tried in every
way to keep the little girl quiet but in
vain. Finally the child observed that
the preacher bad a pompous way of in
flating his chest and lungs at a new
paragraph or bead. Just as the mother
