My particular Idiosyncrasy, says a
writer in Notes ami Queries, in in favor
of othl numbers. How I acquired the
harmless passion happened In this way:
Among my school fellows was n Turkish lad who was tin: lli'flt to point out
to 1110 a curious law of numbers. Wo
would tnku a atrlng of figures at random,
which wo added up hi linos till they
lotted to a resultant number nine or
not. If thoy "showed up" nine wo tic-
clarcd them lucky; if not, not. For ex-
amplo, tako numbers 1872-1*) equals 0.
So ingrained is this meaningless habit
that I never buy a railroad ticket with*
out"submitting its number to this ridiculous scrutiny. Many 11 time I have puz*
tied myself as to tho origin of this Billy
habit, yet it woiild appear tbat Ihe nf-
foetlon fur number nine displayed by
liiis lad retched 'Turkey via "Arabia.
According to the otionymous author of
"TableTalk," published hy Charles Knight
iu 1S.",(!, Ion;: residence In Cairo by the
famous tmvoter .T.L.Biirckbnrdtliad nlso
rendered him susceptible to tlio Btrango
fascination of odd numbers. He spent
many years iu collecting n storehouse of
Arabian sayings lllustrntlvo of the man*
tiers and ctistomH of this enlightened people; but, Btrango to say, he stopped
short at tbe number 000, "adopting?*
says my authority*, "a notion prevalent
anions tho Arabs that even nmnhcrs
are unlucky and that anything perfect
In its quantity is particularly affected by
the evil eye," Whereupon the writer
proceeds to rIvo nn Instnneo that came
under his ou-n notice, At that lime
there lived iu Isllngtou a wealthy row-
keeper 11 rimed lthodes, who made, many
futile attempts lo keep 1,000 cowa on
bis premises in n thriving condition at
one lime, but was invariable baffled. Ho
could, however, keep 000 without experiencing any loss of stock.
A similar prejudice tbo nuthor discovered to prevail in his journey lugs through
the remoter districts of France, Spain,
Ilnly and Switzerland, dews havo for
ages paid special veneration to thorium-

The  Pelican  Smiled.
There Is a sly old pelican In Cbi.^rnl
park which has an almost human way
of noticing what goes on about bim
without Booming to do so. Tbe other
day. two borons in tlio same cage with
him fought over a tlsh. One had made
tlio catch, but the oilier had undertaken to wrest the morsel from its
rightful possessor.
They squabbled over it like two boys
who have hold of tho same baseball
but. The scuffle brought them into tho
neigh I ior hood of the old pelican, who
stood, apparently asleep, with his big
bill tucked away under a wing. Then
the heron dropped its lish, and tho battle went 011.
No sooner had it boon dropped than
the great bill eame out from underneath tho wing and the flsh went Into
the pelican's pouch. Then tho bend disappeared again. The pelican wns
plainly asleep.
When ouo heron gave up tbo fight
nud flew nwny, the other looked about
for the prize. It was now hero to bo
seen. The keeper of the bird cngCB solemnly asserts that he saw 11 twinkle
In the eye which the pelieaii opened to

One of tho wars of tlio roses, tbo
fiercest and deadliest of'tbem all, was
fought on ,n Held where, curiously
enough, a 'rose peculliff to the spot
grows or used. In grow, lt is n rare
plant now, and the reason Is explained
by Mr. I.cndinun In bis account of
Yorkshire battles. After describing
the terrible battle at Towton on Palm
Sunday, 1401, be says: "I cannot conclude this story of Towton field without nn allusion to the little dwarf
bushes peculiar to the 'Field of tho
Whlto Rose and the Red.'
"They are said to have been plentiful at the commencement of this century, but the visitors have taken tbem
away In such numbers that ihey havo
become rare. Sueh vandalism Is simply shameful', for tho plants are said
to bo unique and unable to exist iu any
otber soil. Tho little roses are white,
with n red spot on the center of each
of their petals, and 11s they grow old

When varnishing wood, tbe work
must bo dono in a warm room at a temperature of at least 75 degrees F. At a
lower temperature the moisture lu tho
air will give a milky and cloudy up'

baud, at the higher temperature the
moisture Is not.precipitated until tho

evaporated to leave a thin smooth film
of shellac. The durability aud gloss nro

It Is curious to note In how many Instances stntngo astronomical errors appear in works of fiction quite unnecessary to tho requirements of tho story
nud resulting apparently from sheer
lack of observation. As a modern
example of such gratuitous blundering tako a piece of description from
Mr. Hall Cnlne's "Scapegoat:" "It was
n wonderful night. Tbo moon, which
was In Its first quarter, was still low
ln tho enst, but tho slurs wore thick
overhead." A wonderful night, Indeed! And strange that such a lover
of nature ns Mr. Hall Cubic should
not hnve reflected that when the moon
In Its first quarter is low In the cast
It Is broad daylight, with tlio sun high
In the heavens!
Nevertheless on this point ho erred
In good company.    The young moon
bns proved n stumbling block to many j
n writer who has attempted to Intro- '
duce It as a picturesque adjunct to his
description of evening.
In   Dickons'   "Our  Mutual  Friend"
Eugene Wrayburn, In his walk along
the river bunk, finds It lias just risen
when "the stars wero 'beginning to
shine In the sky, from which the tones
of red  and  yellow  wore flickering."
Dickens, in truth, was sublimely su* I
perior to astronomical niceties, cspe* j
etnlly whon tbey In any way Ititer-!
fercd with the artistic effect of his
stories.   In his "Child's Dream of a
Star" the point turns upon ono special i
star, "larger and more beautiful thnn '
tho  rest,"  whlcb   always  camo out
every night In one particular plnce nud
nt ono particular time, thereby behaving as no star has over conceivably
been known to do.   This is undoubtedly taking n liberty with the solar system, but It Is small Indeed compared
With tbe license sometimes claimed by i
nutnors desirous of calling hi the aid |
of astronomy to assist their plots, but
wbo nro either Insufficiently acquainted with their subject or count It no
sin to twist nnd convert facts to suit
tbeir requirements,
A very famous and noteworthy Instance of this Is afforded iu Rider I laggard's "King Solomon's Mines," where
the phenomenon of a total solar ocllpso
Is employed witb most hoppy and dramatic effect ns far as tlio story is concerned, but witb n perfect disregard
of astronomical details which In Its
audacity4Is almost startling. Here,
again, as in so many other eases, the
difficulty of the young moon conies
In. and the sun has scarcely set before tho "line crescent" rises In the
east Within a wonderfully short space
of time uftor this curious event fife
moon Is full, and only a day later tho
total eclipse of tho sun takes place,
despite the astronomical fact that it
Is at "no moon" (or, more accurately
speaking, tho last few seconds of the
old moon nud the first few seconds of
the'new) that a total solar eclipse alone
Is possible.
Hut perhaps the most Interesting
feature of this altogether remark a bio
eclipse Is that the total darkness lusts
for nearly an hour. Alas, under tho
rarest nnd most favorable conditions,
seven minutes alone Is the utmost limit
of time during which the sun's faco is
totally obscured, ami Ihe observer tin*
der ordinary circumstances counts himself Micky If ho Is rewarded for a journey of some thousands of miles hy an
uninterrupted view of tlio corona for
three minutes, two or even less.
Some years ngo one of the magazines
contained a story called "The Portent,"
tho motif of wbieb was a certain
strange seeming In tbo heavens which,
Whenever It appeared, boded 111 to a
particular family. This prophetic sign
was none other than tbo npponi'ilheo
of the crescent moon with a slar between tho two horns. Nor was this a
particularly novel Idea, for It will ho
remembered that In Coleridge's "Ancient Mariner" tbat voracious seaman
relates how at one period of his adventures there roso
above tho eastern bar
i  The horned moon, with onu bright star
1  Within tbo nether tl|>.
In a purely miraculous nnd fanciful
creation llko this famous poem It
would be ridiculous to cavil nt such
a detail, though In the enso of tho
story It might well be questioned how
tho star could manage to appear in
Btich a position. We may perhaps refer to the Hue in "The Burial of Sir
John Moore" where the great soldier
Is represented as being Interred "by
tbe struggling moonbeam's misty
light" whereas, ns a matter of fact,
the moon was hut a day old nt tho
time of the buttle of Cortina aud therefore Invisible. This seems like hyper-
criticism, especially In a poem that
lays no claim to astronomical accuracy.
The case Is different when an author
deliberately makes a statement which
be Intends shall he believed. In "Innocents Abroad" Mark Twain draws
special notice to the point that on tho
voyage across tho Atlantic they ob*
served the full moon located just In
the same spot In the heavens at the
fame hour every night. He accounts
for this by the motion of the ship,
which gained enough every day to
keep up with the moon, but ho seemingly forgot that, though for this reason the position of the moon might not
greatly alter, her phase certainly
would, so that It could not havo been
the full moon which was visible night
