Baalbee, or Baalbek, Is the name

Code-Syria, forty-five miles northwest
of Damascus. There is nothing particularly remarkable about a ruined city
belng fouud in the locality mentioned, i
but tbe size of Uie blocks uf stone used
by the nncient builders of this particular city is something that baa puzzled
tbe modern engineers since the day
who bad just been when Baalbee was first made the Mec-

immense atones on every side of the
visitor to this ancient pile of ruins, but

to be the largest ever used in the construction of a building���are In a wall
back of the temple of Baal. These immense stones are respectively sixty-
four, sixty-three and sixty-two feet in
length aud each ls thirteen feet in
thickuess, but the most wonderful
thing in connection with them ls tbe
fact that they are at a place In tbe
wall twenty-five feet from the ground.
How these Immense blocks of granite
were ever raised to such a height ls a
question that has never yet been answered.

Lack  Money.
"Handsel" is the lirst money received
for the day ("luck money"), that which
Is given back "for luck" by tbe seller
to the buyer. Spilling upon it is the
essence of tbe whole transaction, and
It ls practiced today, not only all over
England, but all over tbe world. We
know from many classical authors
what virtue was believed by ancient
Greeks and Romans (see Totter, "Ar-
chaeol, Graec.," i., 41Tj to lie in the
act, and there is also abundant evidence of the belief all through tbe middle ages, and now in tho twentieth
century it remains as strong as ever.
Otto Jabn says: "I have often seen the
fishwives of Ellerbeck, when tbey had
got bandgeld from my mother, how
tbey spat upon It. They say that It
brlugs them besonderes gluck. They
will not tell tbe reason. Certainly it Is
done to keep off witchcraft." The same
thing Is done by modern Egyptians aud
by Italians. At Poslllppo I gave a
penny to a deaf mute. He first spat
on It, then put it to his forehead, and
lastly devoutly crossed himself with it,
precisely (except the crossing) as Is
done by modern Egyptians. Even in
faroff Celebes the natives spit in the
same way ns a protective rite.���Notes

At first the watch was about the size
of a dessert plate, li bail weights and
was used as a "pmLet clock." Tbe
earliest known use of the modern name
occurs in the record of _562, which
mentions that Edward VI. had "one
larum or watch of iron, the ease being
likewise of Iron gill, with two plummets of lead." Tbe lirst watches may
readily be supposed (o have been of
rude execution. The lirst great Improvement, the substitution of springs
for weights, was in lr.r.o. The earliest
springs were not coiled, but only
straight pieces of steel. Early watches
had only one band, and, being wound
up twice a day, they could nut be expected to keep time' nearer than fifteen
or twenty minutes in the twelve hours.
I'be- dials were of silver or brass. The
eases had no crystals, but opened at
tlie back anil front nnd were four or
five inches in diameter. A plain watch

It Is not easy to hook a tarpon while

still fishing save that more care must be
used, ns the book Is probably not firmly
imbedded. An old fisherman told me that
ho liked to be sure of Ills llsh anil so

lt Is one of tlio objections to that method. Another anil stronger objection is
the disturbance of my reelings In thinking thai I nm pulling against a fish's

Man Is the only animal which ls always accompanied by disease except
those creatures that are his companions
and share his patronage. There is reason to believe that the denizens of the
forests, the veld, the rivers and tbe
ocean, so far as they escape man's influence, live, with hardly an exception,
healthy lives. Chronic ailments begin
with man's protection in the dairy,
stable and kennel. Man has created
artificial conditions with which the
"thousand ills that flesh is heir to" are
associated. It ls now liis supremo task
to brlug these conditions into harmony
with the laws of his being. Sickness
and debility are uot to be regarded as
natural and inevitable parts of our
heritage, hut as the fruits of rebellion
against nature's laws, and therefore to
be got rid of. If tlie humnn family
dwelt In ventilated houses, breathed
pure air, lived temperately, with little
or no alcohol, and took dally exercise
iu the open, lt would perhaps know
little more of gout, rheumatism, cancer, fever, lumbago, dyspepsia, asthma aud the host of Infectious troubles
than do the lower animals.���London

The terms contagion sn.l infection
are too often used promiscuously,
though they are by nor means synonymous. The dissemination of mycotic
diseases takes place in different ways.
There are those which cannot be communicated from person to person, but
spread only by tlio mlerobic cause Invading the individual. To this class belong malarial fevers produced by spas-
mnilia. There are, secondly, those
which are not communicable from person to person, but through external carriers only, such as soil, wal-r, food,
air, Clothing and utensils. To that class
belong yellow fever and Asiatic cholera. They are Infectious. There are,
finally, those which may be transmitted
directly from a person or Indirectly
through carriers. To this class belong
���tsarlet fever, measles, diphtheria, variola, influenza, erysipelas aud varicella,
jierhaps also whooping cougb, They
are contagious and infectious.

In Blam tlie lighting of a cigar indicates a betrothal. In that country a
person wishing to become engaged to
the girl of his choice offers her a flower
or takes a light from a cigar or cigarette if she happens to have one in ber
month, and thereupon, provided there
ls no impediment, steps are at once taken to arrange for the payment of the
dowry. The families of the bride aud
bridegroom have each to provide a considerable sum. In Calabria, as In
many parts of India, a lighted taper or
a lighted pipe betokens the acceptance
of the suitor for the band of a lady In
marriage. Iu Siberia it is tlie custom
that when a suitor has been accepted
by ti girl she presents hlm with a box
of cigars and a pair of slippers as a
sign that he is to bo master in the

One of the familiar sights on the
Btreets of a Japanese town is tlie pancake woman, who, with her little brazier of coals and her tiny frying pan, is
usually found on a comer not far from

and there Is apt to be a hungry crowd
around her liltlo stand as soou as
school Is out, for not many of the chll-
dren are able to resist the smell of the
crisp pancakes, at least If they have
any money. For a small coin worth
only a fraction of one of our pennies

was an effective means of defense, particularly when filled with water. In

assumed the dimensions of a lake, being often 100 yards wide and ten to

the moat was too wide to permit ot this
bridge covering the entire distance a
slight wooden bridge was employed.

The word "eavesdropper" has a curious origin. In the early part of last
century the penalty of listening tn or
overlooking secret assemblies, especial*

day till the water ran through the
clothing and down to the shoes of the

Until business Is successful without
a proper store, proper employees and
the right amount of capital, it must be
assumed that thetic three conditions
are essential to the conduct of profitable trade, and It Is as obvious that
bo long as advertising accompanies the
business of profit advertising ls necessary for the upbuilding of business. The mere appearance of advertising Indicates thfft business Is being
done or will be done, and so long as
everybody prefers lo buy of men of

just so long will the man who advertises be likely to do the largest business.

For centuries we have tried to get
the word that expresses the relation of
the  mun   to  the  maid  lie  intends  to
marry. "Intended" hns been tried and
found wanting. "My bloke," "my
young man"���these combinations nre
in.I beard in the best: circles. "My lie-
troth.'d." a phrase used in Germany,
has  not taken  root in  England.   "My
sweetheart" is pretty enough, but lt
lacks the official sound. Y.oung men
an.l maidens become engaged and marry, but tbey have to cross the channel
Tor the word Hint leads them to the
altar. One might suggest to the blushing girl who bus to allude to tlie man
of her acceptance "my future." French
maidens sp.-nk of "mon futur," and tt
sounds comptthenslve.-^London Chronicle.
