exceedingly numerous in man,  while
the tongue of even the cow has so.sic
85,000 taste bulbs.
lt would be Interesting to know
whether each special taste excites a
special ���group of nerves nnd that only,
thus corresponding to tho auditory
nerves. These tn ite bulbs were d's-
covered In 18C7. Each one consi 'ts 1 '

A vr: er i-i Science doni -s Uial  the
letter "y" is n  lb     I descend)!   I ;' 1
Uie lloninn "V," which in the lime of
Cicero was borrowed irom the Greek
alphabet to represent upsilon In the
translation of Greek names. The latter Is only ir-:."!, he says, us a vowel to
transliterate upsilon in loan words either direct from the Greek or Indirectly through Latin or French. In a grout
majority of eases Ibe English "y" is n
seuiieonsotinut corresponding in value
with the continental "j." Along with
the other Roman letters, "y" was
iiilopti'd by the Anglo-Saxons from the
Latin alphabet, with a value approximating to that of "I." In fact, ha
claims tbat there is nol 11 lineal descendant of the .\n!;!- Sti'xon "y" new
in ux-lstonee. Tbe letter "y" in modern
Kngll.h words is. curious y enough, he
claims, not u "y" er all, but n lineal de-
scciiilanl of the Auglo-.Saxou "g."
which was lhe Itomnn "G" evolved by
tho l: minus mil of an earlier "C."
Nature'_ CnrlouN Tree Low.
Let us observe n law common to nil
tree-;. First, neither the st ;ms nor
bu ��� rlis of lha maple, elm or oak taper
'' il nt the point where they fork.
Whenever a stem sends ronu a uruncu
ai.il a branch sends off n smaller bough,
:   ir stem, Ihey remain Iho same In
Ihu icter, and the original stem will
Increase rather than diminish until Its
iiexi branch starts.   No bough, branch
r stem ever narrows near Its extreni-
. y except where It parts with a portion of its substance by sending off
another branch or stem.
All trees are alike lu this respect, n.-'d
if Jill tho boughs, branches, stems, buds
and blossoms were combined and united without loss of spi.ee thoy would
form a round log the same in sine and
diameter ,:s the trunk irom which they
m>ri:ig. This is one of nature's imperative laws and never falls to prove true.

Coming in from ber walk one morning, she Informed her mother that she
bad seen a lion hi the park.
No amount of persuasion or reason-
in,' wavered ber stutetiient one hair's
breadth, so at night, when she slipped
down beside her knee, ber mother said.
-Ask God to forgive you for that fib.
Dorothy hid her face fer a minute;
then she looked straight into ber mother's eyes, with her own shining like
stars, and said, "1 did ask liim, mamma, dearest, nnd be suid: 'Don't mention lt, Miss Perkins. That big dog
has often tooled me.' "
