When, on a signal being given, another diver came down,'he found  his unfortunate comrade ' imprisoned  under water without hope of escape.

Our respected ancestors had some  queer notions in regard to natural history. ' Old Sir Thomas Browne, in bis  "Inquiries ; Into' Vulgar and Common  Error?," discusses many of tliose. "That  a brock or badger hath the legs on one  side shorter than on the other," he  says, "though an opinion perhaps not  very ancient, is yet very general.", This  belief was received notJ only by theorists, but by most of those who had  daily, opportunity to behold and hunt  them; yet Sir Thomas could not accept this belief, because it seemed ''no  easy affront into reason and generally  repugnant unto the course ,of nature."  Wherever he looked he saw that tho  limbs of animals on the opposite sides  of their bodies were of the same length  and number and that none of them had  an odd leg.- One would think that the  question might have'been put beyond  cavil by simply measuring the limbs  of the animal;- but perhaps they never  thought of that.  The worthy knight, however, could  accept the basilisk, though it does not  seem that he ever saw one and did not  question its power to kill by "inflicting  its eye," as old' Dr. Parr would have  expressed -it, upon1. Its enemy. And  why'not? "For'if plagues or pestilential atoms have been conveyed in the  air from different"regions, if men at a  distance have infected each other, if  the shadows of some, trees be noxious"  if torpedoes deliver their opium' at a  distance and stupefy beyond' themselves, we cannot reasonably deny,", he  says," "that there' may proceed from  .subtler seeds more agile emanations.,  which contemn those laws and invade  at distance unexpected." - But there  was a .limit to the credulity of Sir  Thomas, and'as for the. generation .of  the .basilisk, that "it proceedeth from  a, cock's egg hatched under a toad or a  serpent," he_ thought it a- conceit .as  monstrous as the brood itself.- ,  TITLE   PAGES.

They Were Uitknonri Until After tlie  invention,  ot  Priiilir*.'*-.  The most'surprising thing in the his-'  tory.of tlie title page is the fact that  it was utterly unknown until a few  years after the invention of printing.  In the days before that great era, when  ail books were in manuscript, no scribe  ever thought of> prefacing hi��������� work  with a separate page or leaf devoted to-  the title. -'   ' ,    '  When printing took'the place of writing, changes came gradually. In many  early printed books there was, still  scope for handwork. Initial letters were*  left for the "rnbrisher," as he was-  called, to decorate and illuminate by  hand.  As books multiplied this practice', o_  course, soon died out.', Occasionally  wealthy and luxurious book owners  would employ a skillful illuminator to  adorn the pages and margins of a printed book just as in former days manuscripts had been, illuminated.  The manuscript practice of surrounding the text with an ornamental border  was also, often'applied to early printed  books. The- introduction of the title  page showed the sanie mingling of old  and-new.  ,' **      '",-'.,  Printing  was  invented "about  1450>,o  but no title page, properly so called, is  known before 1470.   In'the earliest'ex-  amples the title is either, as in manuscripts, given in the first two or three  lines..of ,the,first page, to be immediately followed by the printed text, or  is simply, as it'has been called,'a'label���������that Is, it consists of a very brief  title at the top of a bla.nk page.  *��������� There was one curious exception. '"A:  "Kalendar" printed by Kardolt at*Venice in 1476 has a full' title page in the*  modern-style.    This remarkable page-,,  ' consists of an .introductory.,poem surrounded on- three sides by ornamental  borders,, with, at the bottom, the place  of printing and date���������"Yenetiis,. 147G'*  ���������and the names of the printers.

Occasionally the gov'ner did society  He seldom went into any but the best,  because there he found the' "smart"  young women who emphasized their  social standing by minute accounts of  their mistresses' diamonds. ' The gov'ner had often materially increased his  i bank account by those'financial pointers. "        ,   '    ���������  One Tuesday night he dropped into  .Wiley's. It was sometimes a little  ' mixed there, and he met almost inline-  diately a flirtatious, young woman  ��������� *who, he found, was general housemaid to a young couple in the suburbs. She prattled Interesting things  ,while they were,sitting out a dance.  "I am dead tired tonight," she confided.

"A gauzy butterfly like you oughtn't  to   wear  themselves .out   with   work.-  ,What's your push out there?" he in-1  -' quired tenderly.  }   Miss Nellie tossed herLkead.  ''   "Just  me an'  him  an'' her  an'  tti'e  baby, an' he gone half the time."  She unconsciously lowered her voice.  ,.     "He's gone now, an' she thinks I'm  there in bed.    I am'goin' to'Mulhall's  party tomorrow night too."  "Suppose  the  crooks  do  the  house,  an''her alone?" he suggested.     -���������  Miss Nellie squealed.  "Mercy   me!     You   don't   think ��������� I'd,  . fight 'em if I was there, do you?    Oh,  she's got a telephone right in her room.  -She could get help-easy enough."  The .gov'ner smiled. ,It was -a leisurely matter, to finish a job'and get  comfortably away after the telephone  bell had called for help. It was sur-";  prising no one had got on to a dead  open and shut job like that.  Three o'clock the next morning found  him  padding gently  up thc still   half  country   street.     Just   ahead   of   him'  were the dim outlines of a large iawn  heavily shaded -with trees.  He vaulted the fence and strolled  leisurely up through the trees. '"Not  even  a  bloomin'   dog!"  be  murmured  pityingly.  Ten minutes later he walked quietly  into the house and found his way into  the hall. He generally found tho hall  first and radiated from there.  vITe .had hardly stepped in when a  door on the upper floor opened sharply.  "Nellie!    Nellie!" called a frightened  .voice.  'There is something dreadful  the matter with the baby, and the telephone won't work!   .Nellie!"  The voice rose to a shriek of terror.  There was a rush of muflled footsteps  through the upper hall.  The gov'ner listened sympathetically.  "Nellie is at Mulhall's an' good until  5 o'clock," he murmured.  There was an instant's silence; then  tho voice broke out afresh in deeper,  terror:  "Oh, she's dying���������she's dying!"  The gov'ner scratched his head distractedly. He hated to see folks in  trouble.  "Baby! Baby!" The voice was heartbreaking. "Isn't there anybody to help  me?"  An instant later he stood at the door  of the lighted chamber. '-.-��������� ��������������������������� >>':  "Can I do anything for you, ma'am?"  he inquired politely. "I heard you as  I was passim'"  A woman knelt by the bed. She was  very childlike looking. She swept the  hair back from her face and regarded  him -with terror stricken eyes.  A baby lay on thc bed. Little rings  of dark hair curled damply on its pallid  forehead. Its little face was ghastly  blue and pinched. Suddenly its head  drew back more violently and its limbs  commenced to twitch in long, convulsive shudders.  She clutched the gov'ner's arm aud  shook it fiercely.  "Can't you do anything?" she demanded.   .  "I don't know," he said; then his face  cleared. Heaven knows from what recess of'his life he drew the information, but he found it.  "I know," he said briskly. "It's hot  .water. Go get some hot water in some-  thin' big enough to put the kid in."  She disappeared like an arrow loosed  from a bow.  The gov'ner slipped his long, dexterous  fingers soothingly along the clammy  little body.  There was a sudden splash in the:  hall, and the girl mother came breathlessly in with a small tin bathtub.  , "Get its duds off!" he said authorita  tively.    "This water ain't hot enough  but it'll have to pass now."    ���������  ,   The poor little mother's fingers wert  trembling, so they -were nearly useless  She  turned  great,   imploring  eyes  bs  him.  "Please put her in!" she half whispered;;   'Tarn afraid to lift her."  '���������Blest!'' murmured the gov'ner; then  he   stooped   and   lifted   the   tiny   convulsed body, into the water.    He felt it  re!:���������.:���������: slightly in his hands as the watt r submerged it. * /  "Throw a blanket cr something over  ���������--.or. iy. iiin ho.it!" he commanded.  "Then skin out, can't you, an* get suujl-  hotter' water?   Get a move en you too."  She had already gone.  He knelt by the chair, regarding the  small   face  he was. supporting above  the -blanket  anxiously.     It   was   less  pinched "now  and   lay   limply  on   his  hand, small and pathetic.,  , "Such a little kid," he said softly-  "sucha'bloomin' little kid!"  The long lashes slowly lifted, and  the dark,eyes gazed into his. Slowly  the purpled'lids closed again, and a,  tremor shook its body.      - "-  He swore ^oftly. "Ain't she ever  L-omin'? This layout* will freeze the  kid in a blasted minute!"   -  Hergathered the baby uja in the blanket and commenced to pace the floor,  watching the tiny face with strained  attention. ��������� ,', ���������  The blue shadow's deepened under its  eyes; the tiny- waxen nose pinched  closer and closer; the small .mouth  seemed settling into a terrible calm.  . He swore as-he walked. In,that way  he managed in ' a measure to relieve  his feelings.    '        . ',"''���������  , "Is   she   dead?"'   asked   a   choked,  breathless voice at the door.        4  .The. girl mother's face was'ghostly,,  but the only thing  ho  saw  was the  ���������teaming kettle in her hand.  "Naw," he snarled; but he was not  so'sure.' ��������� '  , He lowered the child carefully into  the water.   -  ."Now, just keep pouring���������a little, a  little, to keep it warmin' up."  "Ten, fifteen,' minutes passed.        ' <   <���������  A. faint /white glimmer of "life commenced to tremble across the baby's-'  face.    The'blue shadows slowly faded,  arid the wax white nostrils filled.  The gov'ner heaved a mighty sigh.  "She's    coixiin'-    through."    he    announced triumphantly.   "Now give me  a dry blanket.!' ', .  He wrapped her warmly in it and  laid her, weary'and .sleepy, but palely  pink, on'the bed.      '   ��������� '       c  Then "he shook himself like a man  'coming out of a trance. He suddenly  remembered his burglar's kit in the  lower hall. 'Dawn was breaking, too,  and it might not be so easy getting  back with it to town.  The girl mother looked at him with  moist, grateful eyes.  "You are so good." she said, with  quivering (voice. "Baby would have  died if you hadn't"���������  ���������She hesitated. Some way she could  not quite place him. He did not look  like a workingman. He was not a  gentleman. She dimly remembered  that he had sworn at her dreadfully.  She went to tho dresser and picked  up a* little steel meshed purse. Inside lay a tea dollar bill and a dollar.  "Would you mind," she said desperately, "if I gave you a dollar? I wish  I could give you more, but it is all  thc money I have, and Fred won't be  back until the last of the week."  ITer small, tremulous fingers clung  to his an instant, and a tear splashed  down on them.  "I can't thank you., I can't thank  you," she sobbed.  Tho gov'ner looked at her helplessly,  at the $10 in the purse and the little  heap of diamonds over on the dresser.  Then ho went down stairs, the dollar in his baud.  the new world and enabled her by the  wealth which she derived from that  source to become the most powerful  nation in Europe. It is well- known  that Columbus, discouraged with the  refusals which he met at so many  courts, dispatched his brother Bartolo-  naeo to ask aid from Henry VII. of  England. But on the way the messenger feli into the hands of pirates, and  by the'time he reached London was so  destitute that he had to try to earn  the money to clothe himself in proper  style before he could be ^presented at  court. But by that time it was too  late. ,Eveu the fact that Ferdinand and  Isabella furnished the funds to equip  the expedition was mainly due to the  accident that Juan Perez de Marcbena,  the queen's confessor, happened'to be  passing when the weary mariner was  knocking, at the door of- La Rabida  monastery to beg a little bread and water.' for his boy Diego and was impressed with theenolile face of the dusty  traveler.

The doctor raised both, his hands  with a grand upward sweep and said:  "Can you measure the ineffable? Can  you comprehend the infiniteV"  "AVe'll make you-a'nice coat, sir." returned the puzzled assistant... Tapping  the doctor's shin, he said:  "That's about the length, sir?"  "Longer!" ejaculated the doctor in  determined tones.  "There, sir?"-  "Longer!" thundered the great man.  The tailor remonstrated. As a technical professional he could give points  on tailoring to any preacher that ever  wore a head.  "If you have it any longer, you won't  be able to walk," he remarked conclusively.

Half a dozen  teachers remained, and Professor  Storm was stepping down from the  platform.    He'reached her side.  "What is the trouble?   Are you ill?"  He glauced curiously from tho clean  page of her book to her flushed face.  For a few seconds speech was denied  her. Then she replied calmly, almost  coldly:  "I fear my mind wandered. I missed  the explanation entirely."  Storm looked at the clock.  "Yoti have forty minutes before train  time. Come up to my desk and I will  go over it with you."  Mechanically she followed his work,  wondering if the ordeal would ever  end. But her voice did not quiver as  she rose.  "Thank you. it is quite simple now  ���������as simple as one plus one equaling  two."  She told the fib unflinchingly, but  her eyes did not meet his. The other  teachers had gathered in a remote corner to discuss the absorbing question  as to whether hats should be worn at  the reception to be given that night  by the local woman's club. Storm laid  a cool, shapely hand over her feverish  one.  "I wish," he said softly, "that you  would let me teach you that one plus  one equals���������just one.   May I���������Alice?"  It had not been her mistake, after  all. He had meant���������  "Girls, are you ever coming?"  It  was  Miss   Lingard's   voice,   just j  outside the door.   Then Alice remembered and drew away her l_ind.  "Really, Professor Storm, if you advance such propositions as that I  shall lose faith in your knowledge of  mathematics."  And with a metallic laugh she hurried   toward   the  cloakroom.     Storm  a wild creature in the heart of the metropolis was one day in the spring of  1901 when I saw a possum crossing  Broadway near Chambers street. The  creature had no chance. I think it was  a truck that killed it, and a -great  crowd gathered, stopping traffic, excitedly "discussing the tragedy.- The majority declared the animal to bo a rat;  the minority maintained that it was a  guinea pig. Then, as tho police interrupted discussion by clearing the car  tracks, a large negro dropped from the  back of a truck, seized the animal and,  mounting the cart tail once more, held  his prize aloft, grinning from ear to  ear. "Dasser possum," he said and  pocketed the future piece de resistance.'  I have never learned where that possum came from, but there's no doubt  where he went. Wild creatures in New  York are sometimes seen. Ducks, geese,  snipe and gulls pass over in their migrations, and it is not uncommon to  catch a glimpse of hawks hanging high  above the city smoke. f  Once I saw a woodcock lying dead on  the sidewalk of Fifth avenue���������curiously enough in front of Delmbnico's.
