to represent the union of tin American

with the idea, which he transmitted to

New Zealand's Glaciers.
The great size of the glaciers around
Mount Cook, in New Zealand, has
been often remarked. The Tasman is
eighteen miles long, the Murchison
ten miles, the Godley eight miles, the
Mueller eight miles and the Hooker
Fcvcn miles. Most of these glaciers
have moraines of exceeding rough
ness, but the approaches to them are
not steep, as is usually the case with
European glaciers. The southern
Alpine snow line is only a little over
7.000 feet. Glacially jiolished rocks
are rare, and in many ways the moun
tains are singularly different from
those of central Europe.

Gymnastic Exercises That Impresses'
the Kurdish Villagers.
Everything Is liable to be misunder
stood, even gymnastic exercises. This
truth was brought home to George II.
Ilepworth, and he tells his experience
in "Through Armenia on Horseback."
The author was stopping in a Kurdish
village, and tbe inn possessed but one
general living room.
In the morning I began my regular
gymnastics, stooping until my fingers
touched the floor, throwing my arms
nliout like the sokcs of a wheel, strik
ing out from the shoulder and going
through all the exercises, none of which
I ever omitted. I would gladly have
taken a sponge bath, but it would have
been impossible to get enough water.
A pint is enough to suffice a Turk.
Well. I got under way with my exer
cises when I saw that my audienco
was excited: conversation dropped into
a whisper, then ceased; word passed
from one to another, and one by one
the occupants of the room quietly left.
I feared that they were offended and
wanted to call them back and apolo
gize. Just then my dragoman entered.
"What has happened?" I asked.
He laughed the harder as he replied:
"The Kurds think you are practicing
devotional religious exercises, and they
retired under the impression that you
would regard their presence as an in
trusion." His Blunt Critic
Irving llachcllcr was introduced one
day by a mutual friend to a western
".Mr. llachcllcr," exclaimed the
friend to the mountaineer, "Is an au
thor of repute in the east."
"Oh, yes," drawled the mountaineer.
"I know of him. I was locked up In
my cabin here by the snow two win
ters ago, and 1 only had two books to
read the whole five months, your book,
sir," he said, turning to Mr. Bachellcr,
"and the Bible, and I read them
through several times."
"Indeed: said the author, a smile
of satisfaction wreathing his face.
"Yes, sir." continued the old moun
taineer, "and I never knew before
how interesting the Bible was." St.
Juries In the Old Days.
In olden times when a jury In Eng

months' imprisonment In addition to 4
the payment of a large sum of money.
In the reign of Queen Elizabeth a Jury,
having reduced a prisoner's alleged

good behavior. Penalties were like
