In Regents Park  Gardens, London, was once placed at  work upon a tree twelve feet long  and two feet six inches thick, just  as the town clocks sounded the hour  Df noon. The beaver began by barking the tree a foot above the ground.  That done, he attacked the wood. He  worked hard, alternating' his labor  'with dips in";, his ,,b,athihg:pond. He  bathed and labored alternately until  ; 4 o'clock in thjv afternoon, when he  ate his supper of bread and carrots  and paddled about in. his pond until  half-past 6 o'clock. Ten minutes  later/when only one inch of the tree's  diameter, remained Intact, .he bore  again upon;his work, and--.the*.-tree  fell. Before it fell the beaver ran  as men run when they have fired- a  blast. Then, as the tree lay" on tho  ground, he portioned it out mentally  ���������jtnd again began to gnaw.  He worked at intervals all, night;  cut the log Into three parts, rolled  two of the portions into the water,  and reserved the other third for his  permanenj^jhjd^ar., ���������'-"'. ;j-  Helps Keep Him Good  In Japan it is not v/ise for a young  man to neglect the maid he is courting.  When a Japanese girl has been  slighted by her lover she revenges  herself according to the following  quaint custom. In the dawn of the  early morning she rises, and puts on  a white robe and white clogs. Round  her neckvshe hangs a small mirror,  which falls to her breast, and on her  head she puts a metal crown with  three points each point bearing a  lighted candle.  In her left hand she carries a small  figure of straw or rags ��������� supposed to  represent her unfaithful lover ��������� and  this she nails to - one of the sacred:  trees surrounding the'-.. family shrine.  She then prays for the death of the  man, vowing that if this comes to  pass, she will pull out the nails which  are hurting the sacred tree, and make  offerings to comfort her family god.  ' Every:night she comes to the shrine;  strikes in two more nails, and makes  the same prayer,.her idea being that  the god,to save his tree from further  ���������njury will kill her lover.  iMnBir  Commencement was.but a couple of  months away, and 1 was very busy  getting my classes ready for the" exercises, when Laura Warren, a senior  of the Woman's college, -remained after lecture one afternoon to ask me  some questions about her graduation  speech. Miss Warren was to have tho  salutatory oration, which is always  spoken in Latin. She bud become very  proficient In the Latin language and  literature nnd selected for the subject of her commencement oration  "Augustus Caesar, the Founder of the  Roman  Empire."   "What, professor." she said, "do you  think I would .better bold up to the audience ,as. the. prominent feature of  Augustus' character?"  ."That, living in an age of magnificence a Dd luxury, be personally maintained simplicity of living."

Tou would be of great,  assistance to me in'an oration on Au-"  gustus, but if 1 chose-a theme based  on the love of a Roman maiden you  would be useless, to me."  "Why so?" I asked, surprised.  "Because you know nothing about  love. You do not even know that one  of the students in. this college lovea  you.'"  (. '.'  .. "Loves, me?".,  "She has given you her whole heart"  "Who Is she?"  ��������� "You surely, wouldn't have me betray the poor girL But enough of  this.

I have a topic, much  used, it is true, but one that excites-  powerful emotions, 'a vestal virgin  who loved nnd suffered the frightful  penalty attached to the crime of a'  vestal's loving.'"  ���������Miss Warren left me with a smile  on her very attractive lips, left me  a changed man.J Dp to this moment  .1 had been so absorbed in the ancients,  that I k had taken n& thought of the  moderns, .and, as "lor the matter bt,  .:|oye.', I did not know what It meant  My pupil had awakened an Interest In  me..

If I favored one of these topics Bhe is-_  cllned toward another.. At last, finding '  It impossible to concentrate her mind  on any one of them, I gave up trying.   The truth is ! wished to ask her:  again which one of the girls she had  referred to ln her former conversation,  with me, but I considered such a sub-.

So' passed the time, till within a  month of commencement One day  when <I rdlsmlssed my class 1 called  Miss-Warren up to, my.desk and asked  her. bow she was, getting on with her  oration. , She smiled and said she was  .still hunting, for a subject I; strove  'to impress'"upon* her1 the1 necessity of  a decision,*'whefeuponf she said she  was -thinking, of taking for a theme a  girl of "Pompeli\who. loved a man and  was pondering on a*modest way fo let  him know-rU] when -the dreaded; volcano of ^Vesuvius opened, buried the  city under!ashes, and the man with it  I looked' ^so lugubrious at this indirect reference to my own case that  Miss Warren'smiled.

At the same time there remained a.,  tiny: curve i at the corners - of her.  -mouth and a soft, look in her eye that'  puzzled and at the"same time made"  me feel, very queer.  "   ;; :  "Select my-to'pic for me, professor,"^  sbe said.' ��������� "1 -will use:any you name.'  and 1 am-sure.that with the feeling-  .ever-present that jt is your choice 1  shall write a good oration." !  I wondered-what she meant by that  ? .'"In-that^case,-! will choose.the one  you,first named..!Augustus Caesar.' "  From 'this ���������time Miss   Warren  took^  hold of the matter seriously.  She ������nv  ���������suited- 'me constantly,, and as  I saw1'  .herf'oratiqnugrowxup  under,  my-encouragement* -and .influenced here and'  there by. my suggestions my interest ���������  'hvtbe young ��������� oratress constantly  ln..:  creased.i';l-forgot about the.girl who  had honored-me with her love and began to wish that Miss, Warren might  stand In her place.  '��������� Otti  commencement  day, . when  the  salutatorian stood.up in the attire of a  girl graduate���������spotless white���������and in a  melodious.voice. spoke in a language  that'died  many centuries ago, I listened  in <->apt attention.    1  was  fa  'miliar''with'It-all. but as I listened to  the words come forth, every one. enun  ;ciated musically. It seemed to me that,  no language has ever been so beautiful, so impressive, as that of Cicero  and "of Horace. (  ' Once only1 th������ speaker cast her eyes  down'-upon 'me, sitting with other  members of the faculty Just beneath  her, when-uttering a sentence in  .which she. had made an error and  which I had corrected for her. instead  of the Latin, word "amare," "to love,*  she had used the word "amavi," "1  have loved." Her beautiful orbs sank  to mine only for a moment, then were  raised to the throng.  I could not but be astonished that an  oration so beautifully delivered and so  well composed should have produced  so little effect But when I remem  bered that I and possibly one or two  others' alone - understood what the  speaker was talking about my surprise faded Into a regret that the audience could not have enjoyed it as I  :did. ;:        ���������"���������''���������'���������"���������'������������������*< -"':'..      v *  I did not see Miss Warren after the  delivery of her speech, but called upon  her that evening���������before her intended  departure-rto ��������� congratulate .her upon  its merits. I found her expecting me,  and so enthusiastic was I over her effort of the day that, taking her hand  to express my enthusiasm, I found it  difficult to- release It When I did so  she led me to seats where we could  sit side by side, and I went over her  ������ration, repeating sentence after sen-  tehee in rapture. . .  '  I   was 'surprised  that she  did  not  ed somewhat Impatl^HiK? to mem an<J  wJva i restea for breath said:  "Do you wish me to tell you before  I go the name of that girl who has  given you her heart?"  '    "No; I don't"  We were sitting close together, she  bending forward, toying with some ornamental work on the skirt of her  dress, so that my eyes fell .upon the  curves of her waist Something���������I'  know not what���������got into my arm, and  without, my consent it dropped upon  the waist For a moment I was frightened; but seeing that she paid no attention to what I had done, I took  courage. ���������.;    ,  i, -What else occurred during that eventful evening I consider too sacred to  give. I have written It out in a dead  language, which no one but myself is  likely to.understand. Before we parted. I, said to her:  "Since we are betrothed, perhaps you  may not object to tell me who Is, the  girl who. has given me her heart"  . "Don't trouble yourself about her,"  she replied. "She is not worthy of so  guileless a'man."  All this happened years ago, and I  have since learned how stupid I was  not to even suspect that the salutatorian of that year, having become attached to a bookworm, was obliged to  turn his attention from the dead languages to herself or leave him to his  books. She cared not for Augustus  or the vestals or any other of the persons she proposed to make ber theme.  There was a living person of more  Importance to her than even the dead  emperor. That person, I am proud to  say, was the bookworm���������myself. _j_   I TRUE NORTH  .Compass of Columbus' Days Getting  Closed    Out,   Recent   Gyroscope  Improvements   Helping   Man  Steer Safer Course.  u that struck home:   Some girl loved JgiioW   evidence   of   being   especially  pleased at,my  She listen-  wiwimwn '������������������������������-���������-������  The magnetic compass, which haa  been in ,'use ��������� by every mariner . who  sailed the- sea since Columbus, ia  nearing the end of its usefulness, at  'least for steam vessels.

GEBMANY IN THE HOLT LA>'D  It is undeniable that the Holy Land  is gradually being Germanized. More  than' two-thirds of the philanthropic  institutions in the way of churches,  missions, hospitals, and hospices are  In the hands of the Germans. The  leading polytechnics, public schools  and ' educational institutes are also  governed by them, while quite large  German colonies are now to be found  In Jerusalem, Bethlehem, Jaffa, and  other places. Recent excavations of  any importance have been carried  out by the Germans, who also virtually control the country's trade. It  la well known that the finest and  purest bitumen is obtained here, also  quantities of excellent sulphur. According to Professor Blackenhorn's  report, copper mines have been worked near the south end of the Dead  Sea in Byzantine times; and also  marble porphyry, and other fine  classes of stone are to be found there  ae well as phosphates.  It has also been stated by American experts that evidences of coal  and ; oil are very apparent. Salt is  found in great quantities; but upon  this the government holds a monopoly  with the curious result that salt is at  present imported from Smyrna, and  Englan^-  If It is true that every man has  his price, it is equally true that few  ������g th������m are worth it  iA  '.': sji-ifew.^t-.v;:  It T  *r  L'-"J"  ti S/ I i-L.  ._JU-~.LJVJ'J  max.

To the frame is attached a loag band  of webbing, which passes over trolleys  running along the top and bottom  of the window-frame and continues  right down the" inside of the window.  There is obviously no danger in cleaning the outside of a window with this  invention, as, of course, the pad is  moved to and fro, up, down, or side-  wayB, entirely by the manipulation  of the webbing strap on the inside of  the room.
