Buddhist  Solomon  Enforces .Wisdom
by  Personal Chastisement—
A Strange Ceremony
in Tokio, Japan, a quaint religious
ceremony is one in which priests seeking promotion have to undergo a beating with a thick stick wielded by the
head of their sect.
The ceremony was the climax ot :i
five days' festival near here, ln celebration of tin death of Kelznra Dais-
hu, founder of the Soto sect, the principal subsect of the Zens, one of tlie
most important offshoots of Buddhism in Japan.
. -.enlsm, which is said to be the most
abstruse and profound of ull sects,
alms entirely at salvation by the elimination of m-lf and Its disciples are
called upon to undergo the test of
beating to prove their ability to pass
through hardships In the cause of Bud
dha for the development of their endurance and spirit of self-control
From the fact that the Lord Abbot
—as the head of the sect Is known
broke twelve stick-- ln the course ot
the ceremony, each stick a yard long
and as thick as a well-developed
thumb, it may be imagined that the
test was eminently practical.
The Lord Abbot's arrival, In a gorgeous robe, was marked by tremendous
beating of huge drums and the shrill
piping of reed instruments, and when
he had taken his place ln the pulpit,
the holiest place In the temple—made
from a bundle of stones—the candl
dates advanced one by one, with
bowed heads and submitted to the
Lord Abbot questions which had resulted from previous meditations
The first candidate asked: What
would be the color of the maple leaves
in the mountains ln the present
Up went the right arm of the Lord
Abbot, down came the thick stick on
the shoulders of the candidate.
My son, thslr color would be redder than the tints of the flowers in
May. Up went the arm, down again
came the stick, and the candidates
retired, gratefully thanking his holiness for the wisdom of his reply.
The second candidate then advanced and bowed before Lord Abbot:
What, he said, ln a piping voice,
should we do to escape the heat ln
summer and the cold In winter? Dowu
came the stick with a smart crack.
Go where there ls neither heat nor
cold, neither summer nor winter.
Candidate number three offered only
an assertion: The moon is tn the
blue sky.
The Lord Abbot laid on with increased vehemence as he thundered
And water Is in a jar, and the parting
stroke broke the stick in his hand
French Anarchists Iseue  Beld Manifesto Against International

As a consequence M. Jules Lecomte,

Court Asked to Decide Whether she
is   Properly  Reared or  Not—
Tracked by Detectives
In Paris, a rather strange question
whether a little girl of 9 had been
well brought up was argued solemnly
in tbe Paris law courts on the evidence of sheriff's officers who had
been set to watcb her manners at

The' little girl. Mile. Glsele. ls the
daughter of a'Paris doctor. He and
his wife separated eighteen months
ago, and the mother, who was given
the custody ot the child, has since
married again. Tho father petitlflhs
to have the child given Into his care
on the ground that she Is being
badly brought up. The officer appointed by the father reported that
he sat at the next table at Dieppe.
The little girl leaned her elbows on
the table, laughed ostentatiously,
spoke loudly and made herself remarked by her language and attitude.
When her fa'.her reproached her she
only laughed or made faces at him.
But the officer for thc other side
found that at a Bols de Boulogne restaurant Mile. Gisele's manners were

Instead ot breaking It -with her fin-
tiers, that she helped herself to tho
salad with her fingers, and occasionally forgot to wipe her mouth after
drinking. She handled her knife
and fork properly, sat up well at table,

little lady ought to do and always answered her mother with a smile. When
finger bowls were brought Mile.

I would be tempted to use him as a

about his baby I wait until he has to

chickens. That sets Jones going, and

The French during the time.of the
Susso-Japanese campaign Frenchmen
Backed the wrong horae, and the humiliation ot their allieB was a sore
disappointment to them. to the Balkan, war, however, French sympathies
Bave from the Btart been with the al-l
Hed states, and their victories have**
Been .hailed with Jubilant satisfaction.
»ut apart trom the pleasure felt by
Frenchmen at the successful efforts
of the llftle powers to overthrow the
,Turk', there ls a national pride bora
of the conviction that the Bulgarians
snd the Servians and the Greeks have
vanquished the troops of the sultan
Because they learned the art of war
an French military colleges and fought
with French cannon.
When, further, lt is remembered
that at Kirk Klllsse and Lule Burgas
lhe French guns were matched against
Serman artillery, it will be conceded
that the crushing defeat inflicted on
the Turks at these battles Is some
Justification for French complacency.
The Balkan war has been very largely
a question of guns, and the duel between the French artillery of the allies and the German artillery of the
Turks has resulted in the triumph of
the cannon made at Creusot.
The selection of French guns by tho
armies of the allies was not due to accident or hazard. Those responsible
for the war material, which was to decide the future ot the Balkans knew
that they could tako no chances, that
iheir very existence was at stake, and
so, after testing the material of all
the ordinance manufacturers of Europe they came to the conclusion that
the Schneider guns were the most
suitable for their' purpose. That Is
why General Savoff, who recognized
.he-Bulgarian army, selected the splendid-75-milllmeter French guu.to annihilate the Turk, and the war ministers
of Servla and Greece did the same.
Most of their material ls comparatively modern and bears the date of 1901,
1905,  and 1907.
MoBt military men—Kaiser Wll-
Helm's officers excepted—openly admit
that the French have the best artillery In the %>rld. It ls especially
suitable for a campaign In the hilly
country of the Balkans, because of its
lightness. The.nature of the terrain,
which has been reddened by the blood
of-Bulgarians and Turks, precludes the
uso of heavy, cumbersome guns, and
that ls why the light, handy field and
mountain guns of the allies have
proved Invaluable. Foreign attaches
who have followed the operations ln
the Balkans during the last few weeks
ire at one ln their admiration of the
rapidity, accuracy and murderous effect of the French-made guns,
A German artillery officer, who witnessed the battle of Lule Burgas, declared that the day was won not by
the rifle fire of the Bulgarians, but
by their cannon, the batteries placing,
•hell after shell with astonishing rapidity at polnti five feet apart. The
gunners fired with automatic precision
and the officer added that he was con-
Iinced that one of the most Import-
nt results of the present war would
be a modification of the German artillery. Krupp guns, he declared, can
neither fire so rapidly nor wjth so
much precision as the murderous
Creusot guns.
But lt le the special pneumatic
brake that gives the man who serves
the French-made artillery his greatest
advantage. When the shot ls flraJ

other hand, when the Krupp gun re-

of lateral displacement, and the cannon has to be relighted every time.
The murderous effect of the allies'
artillery was demonstrated during the
bombardment ot Preschevo, when the
Servians had seventy men rendered
hors de combat, while the Turkish
losses exceeded a thousand. The
Bulgarians and their comrades-in-arms
never fired at random. Taking his
orders from the officer beside him,

To better the condition of Ihe farmer und cut out tlie spread between the producer and the.
his projectiles exactly in the zone corresponding to the square marked on
the little chart before him. And,
whether the enemy be slow-moving
infantry, or galloping cavalry, the
gunner does not need to wait for tho
officer's assurance, when the smoke
has cleared away, that not a living
thing remains in the fatal zone.
The terrible ravages of modern
shrapnel can hardly be exaggerated,
and remembering how ill-prepared
were the sultan's troops—Btarvlng,
disorganized, and dispirited—to give]
battle to the enemy, is It any wonder
that in the accounts of successive engagements we find the same sad record of what happened to the Turks:
Panic broke out in their ranks,.they
quickly became disorganized, and the
defeat became a rout. In every artillery combat since the outbreak of
hostilities the ranks of the Turks have
been decimated by the swift and deadly batteries of their enemies, and as
they watched the broken columns of
their foes scattering before their
merciless fire, the victors broke into
fierce, exultant shouts of Joy and the
gunners kissed the cannon which ltad
won them conquest and glory.
Vos canons francals sont epatants!
(Your guns are astonishing) exclaimed Prince Alexis, cousin to the king
of Servla, when speaking to the war
correspondent of a Paris paper after
the Turks had'been hurled from the
fortress of Ferisovlc. He could not
have paid a better tribute to the wisdom ot King Peter, who learned the
art ot war as a pupil at the military
college of St. Cyr and knew what
French methods and French artillery
were capable of. The best officers
ln the Servian army have all passed
long periods ln the French army and
at the Ecole Superleure de Guerre,
and when the Gree]i_ army was reorganized two years ago that important task was confided to a French
. For a score of years the Turkish
array was tn the hands of Germany's
Instructors. .The Ottoman generals
are the pupils of the celebrated Von
der Goltz, and their military tuition
was received at the Academy of War
In Berlin. In the struggle which Is
now drawing to a close the Turks
have relied on German strategy and
fought with German cannon. The
Balkan troops have put Into practice
the lessoqs they learned ln French
military schools, and their gunners
have served French' ar.Illery. The
duel between Krupp and Creusot has
been all to the advantage ot the
What ls the Inference drawn ty
Frenchmen? A very natural one—that
lt such admirable results have been
attained In the latest contest between
French-trained officers and French
guns, when pitted against generals who
studied ln German' colleges and cannon made ln Germany, the French
army has no reason to fear a war
with Germany. The kaiser may pride
himself on possessing the most colossal army ln Europe, but If the
enemy has tbe best guns ln the world
then superior numbers are only so
much chair a canon. Dash, lnlatla-
tive and strategy—no one denies
these qualities to the French, and
when the race from which King Ferdinand sprang asserts that French In
telltgence has been victorious in the
Balkans, and that the triumph ot the
allies ls a moral victory for France,
Impartial onlookers are bound to ad-
mit that events have largely justified
their claims.

ence of the prominent territorial officers, the government engineers and
citizen: from all parts of the southwest. '
This dam ts on? of the most impressive Irrigation structures ln the
world, and Its construction is one of
the great engineering feats of the ag..
From foundation rock to top of parapet walls lt ls 284 feet high, its length
on crest is 1,080 feet, and Its cubical
contents are 326,000 yards. Its base
covers approximately an acre of
ground. The first stone was laid on
Sept. 20, 1906, and the structure was
finally completed on Feb. 5,1911.
The Roosevelt dam serves a dual
purpose—flrBt as a conserver of floods
and, second, to develop power. The
storage reservoir created by the dam
ls one of the largest artificial bodies
of water in the .world. Spread out a
foot deep, It would more than cover
the entire state of Delaware.
With the water supply now guaranteed by the Roosevelt reservoir nearly a quarter of a million acres will
Boon .be In cultivation. The annual
Income from this land when fully developed will be greater than the entire
cost of the whole project, which is
estimated at approximately $9,000,000.
So rich ls the soil and so assured and
abundant are the crops, it is conservative to estimate that the irrigable
area ts capable ot supporting ln comfort and ln homes of their own not

The mutineers killed the chief warder, his wife, and the chief assistant
warder. A number of other people
were badly hurt. The mutineers
shut themselves Into one of the cells,
and when they were overpowered one
mun was killed and the ringleader of
the mutiny hanged himself.
The mutiny began at 4.3.0 tn the
afternoon, when the prisoners' evening meal was being taken around. It
began with a violent complaint against
tho food by a navy cook, a man
named Drahonnet.
The chief warder ordered the man
to be quiet, and threatened him with
punishment, Drahonnet who had a
razor hidden ln his right hand, rushed
at the chief warder, Archinard, and
as Archinard tried to get at hie revolver other prisoners dashed at blm
and Drahonnet cut his throat.
Archlnard's wife heard his shrieks
as he fell. She rushed into the mob
of mutineers and flew at the ringleader. A prisoner tried to help her
to seize Drahonnet, but the man, who
was a giant ln stature and in strength,
caught Mme, Archinard by the hair,
bent her back over his knee and with

The assistant chief warder, Bonnet,
who had been in another part ot the
prison, hurried up with other warders
and a pitched battle began in the corridors of the prison.

hatchet with which he did terrible
damage, and a few minutes after the
death of his chief, Bonnet was killed
by a crushing stroke of the ringleader's axe whioh cleft his skull ln
The fight had taken place on the
ground floor of the prison. The
noise was heard outside, and a lieu-

warders. He received two knife
wounds ln the throat and another ln
the left side, and Ib not expected to
Close en the heels of Lieutenant
Pernin came the commissioner of police, but the mutineers tore his clothes
to pieces, rushed him out ot the prison and locked the doors. The ward-
ers followed, for by this time the prisoners on the upper floors had been
released, and outnumbering their Jailors, they expelled' them and barricaded themselves ln the prison.
An Immense crowd of civilians, police, gendarmes and soldiers surrounded the prison. The representative ot
the government and the commissioner
of police took command, and after
three hours' selge the outer doors
were forced.
The ground floor corridors were
dark and silent. The mutineers had
cut off the electric light supply.
An acetylene lamp was brought and
the white walls were seen to be dripping with blood. There was not a
mutineer in sight, and ln the middle
of the corridor lay the bodies of the
chief, warder, his wife and his assistant. Mme. Archlnard's head had
rolled down the corridor, and was

Alfalfa on Small Farms
An acre of alfalfa will yield eaeh
yeal from four to eix tons of hay
that is north more for feed than any
otber kind of hay that can be grown.
In the market it bring more than
timothy or clover; last year it sold
for from 125 to $30 a ton in the markets of central and eastern United
States. Alfulfa will produce from
three to six cuttings tbat average
from a ton to a ton and a balf an
acre. North of tbe fortieth degree of
latitude it is seldom advisable to cut
alfalfa more than tbree times each
seasou. But in tbe southern states,
and particularly in the irrigated
ltuds in the southwest, alfalfa is fre
quently cut five and six times every
Alfalfa ia no new plant, as is commonly supposed. Columbia, the Human agricultural writer, described it
two thousand yeara ago in terms
tbat would satisfy tbe most enthusi
astic alfalfa grower of tbe piesent
Besides growing so abundantly,
alfalfa increases tbe fertility of tbe
lnnd on whicb it is grown eo tbat
the ground will produce larger
yields of other crops after alfalfa
than it would before. Tbal is purlly
because alfalfa is very deep-rootetl;
it often goes down four and rive feet
into the ground for its food supply,
and draws from greater depths than
other plants. Bat more important
still is tbe fact that il is a clover,
and bas tbe valuable power of taking tbe free nitrogen from the air
and using it in building up its own
Alfalfa, however, is more diflicull
to grow than other crop*. There are
certain things tbat alfalfa must have.
First, the land on which it is grown
must be well drain-it. Second, tbe
soil must not be deficient in linie.
Third, the particular kind of bar
teria that grow on lbe roots of alfal
fa and take the free nitrogen from
tbe air must be present in tbe soil.
In land on which alfalfa bas never
been raised, and especially in communities where alfalfa has never
been grown, the land will probably
have to be inoculated wilh tbe riglit
kind of bacteria in order to make
alfalfa growing successful. This is
most easily done by getting soil from
a field in wbich alfalfa bas been
growing aud spreading it on 'the
Held ou which the alfalfa iB to be
sown at thejrate of 3oO peunds of soil
to the acre.
Th three things to be done to insure success in alfalfa growing are to
drain the land thoroughly, lime the
soil at the rate uf o e thfius d or
more pounds of lime to the acre—in
case tbere is any sign of acidity of
tbe soil, which will be indicated by
difficulty of growing common red
clover—and lastly tn inoculate the
field witb soil from an old alfalfa
field. When these three things have
been done, alfal fn sbould grow on
dny land that will grow corn.
To the village farmer who farms
an acre or two and keeps a cow, and
possibly a horse, alfalfa offers the
greatest returns One acre will give
him enough to keep three cows for
six months; and when fed alfalfa
bay tbey will need little grain in
addition. For poultry there is no
better feed than chopped alfalfa bay
mixed in tbeir mashes.
Besides furnishing large quantities
of valuable feed, alfalfa is an ideal
crop to grow on the home acre in rotation with the uegetable garden.
Let one half of the ground be sown
with alfalfa, and the other balf
planted to vegetables. The alfalfa
may remain four years, and then the
ground should be plowed and planted to vegetables, wbile tbe other
half is sown to alfalfa for four years.
Under this arrangement the vegetable garden will grow better all tbe
The ideal way to seed alfalfa is to
sow it after a crop of early potatoes,
peas, heels, or other early vegetable*.
The land sbould be thoroughly prepared, and worked as smooth as
possible. iTuring tbe laa balf of
July or the first of August it should
be sown at tbe rale of twenty pounds
of seed to the acre. The seed should
be broadcasted and the ground bar-
rowed lightly to cover the seed. If
tbe season is favorable, the plants
will make enough growth to occupy
all the ground by winter, and tbe
following year they will begin to
yield tbeir three to six crops of hay
to sandy soil. It is the intention of
the government to make it one of
the staple products of the United
States. The flavor of tbe cooked
food is suggestive of hoiled chest
nuts and appeals to all tastes. The
leaf stems may be eaten like a»i tragus, and be leaves make an excellent substitute for spinach or greens.

Newspaper Law
1. A postmaster is required to Rive
notice by letter (returning the paper
does not answer the law) when a sub
HCiiher Hues not take his paper out of
the postofliee, antl state the reason for
its not being taken. Any neglect to
do so makes the postmaster responsi
ble to the publisher for payments.
2. If any person orders his paper
discontinued he must., pay all arrear
ages, or the publishers may continue
to send it until payments are made,
and collect the whole amount whether
the paper is taken from the otlice or
not. There can be no legal discontinuance until payment is made.
3. Any person who takes a paper
out of thc (Hist ullice, whether directed
to his name or not, or whether lie hits
subscribed or Aot, is responsible for
the pav.
4. If a subscriber orders his paper
stopped and the publisher continues to
send it, the suli-iciibei- is hound to
pay for it if he takes it out of the
post office. Thia proceeds upon the
ground that a man must pay for what,
he uses.
5 The courts have decided that re.
fusing to take newspapers or periisli-
cals frnm the post office or removing,
leaving them uncalled for, is prima

Made a Difference
Uncle Henry Altman had a two-year
old colt of which he was very proud.
Many were the disputes he had with
his neighbors over the weight ot the
animal, and he considered that it was
Jealousy that caused many ot them
who wero regarded as experts to put
the weight at a figure a few hundred
pounds below the weight on which he
had set his heart.
One day he sent him to town with
the boys to have him weighed. A
few days later a neighbor came along
and said to him:
Well, Uncle Henry, did the colt
weigh as much as you expected?
He might have been a trifle shy,
said tbe old man, but I can explain
that. It was all on account of a mistake by the boys. I told them to
have him weighed on a scale they
weigh coal on to sell, and they had
him weighed on the scales of a fellow
who buys hay.

With Petition to Prime minister
The BU young and .pretty women suffragists ln brown and green
who have marched from Bdlnburgn
with a petition to the prime minister
completed their Journey. They
tramped 393 miles in five weeks.
Tally-Ho Corner, Flnchley, was ths
Btartlng point of the last stage. A
procession ot 4000'or 6000 sympathizers joined the band and to the stirring
strains of the "Women's March" and
"See the Conquering Hero Comes,"
the women marched to Trafalgar
square, whera a demonstration was
Mrs. de Ponblanque, the organlzar
of the campugn, was at their head
and the cart containing the petition
brought tn lhe rear. After the demonstration two of the marchers, Mrs.
do Fonblnnque and Miss Byham, took
the petition to 10 Downing street,
where It was received by one of Mr
Asqulth's secretaries. '   ,
All along our march we found every
class of person, excepting the hooligan, absolutely friendly towards us,
said Mrs. de Fonblanque, and ln all
parts of the country we have been
Incited to kill Lloyd George.
Usually we had breakfast at 8.SO
and fell In to start walking at 9.30 or
10. Luncheon was a vo y light affair
of bread and cheese by the wayside,
and as a rule we reached our night's
headquarters about 6 o'clock.
On an average we walked fifteen
miles a day, except oh Sundays when
we rested, but of course sometimes we
put in an extra ten miles or more.
On more than one occasion we were
the guests of the townpeople. Except
though, for those spells of hospitality
we each stood our own expenses
Roughly speaking, I should say we did
it on $3.25 a week per head.

Steady Increase In Price Make Them

In London, pearls bought as an Investment are extremely popular today,
said the manager ot Messrs. Elklng-

During the last ten years they have
Increased In price by more than 50
per cent, and at the moment the demand for them Is greater than ever.
There ls little fluctuation ln the supply, which Is controlled by a pearl-
fishing ring, and the number of jewels
thrown for a second time on the market ls not enough sufficient to make
much difference.
The consequence lj that many people ere buying pearls just aB they
might buy securities, confident of a
considerable further increase ln their
value—lt has been 6 per cent per
year for some time—with the additional assurance that they form beautiful
ornaments. .
Pearls, he added, will be the dominant note of high-class jewelry this

Kills Hli Infant Boy In Perambulataor,
Then Cuts His Own Throat
The result of a violent toothache
is believed to have been the cause of
a terrible tragedy which occurred at
Bromley-by-Bow, the victims being
a waterside laborer named Ager and
his little son, a blind boy nearly 2
Ager, who was 33 years of age, Is
stated to have been an industrious
worker and to have lived happily with
his Wife and two children at 18 Fern
street. For some time he had suffered from violent toothache, and yesterday morning he went ln to the
London Hospital to ask that two teeth
might be drawn, He was too late,
however, and on being given a card
with which to attend this morning be

He declined dinner, saying his teeth
were too bad for him, and sat la the
kitchen whllo his wife returned to her
work tn the tcullery. A few minutes
later Mrs. Ager missed him. She
sent her boy upstairs to see tt his
father had gone to bed, but the lad
could not find him. She then went
herself, and was ho.-rl.led to discover
her husband lying at the foot of the
bed with his throat cut, evidently by
a razor which the boy had seen him
take from a kitchen drawer.  .
Mrs. Ager rushed to a neighbor,
and together they made the further
terrible discovery that Ager had slain
hia Infant boy as he lay In his perambulator. There Is little doubt
that Ager's mind had been deranged
by the pain through which   ha   had

When modern mistresses anathematize tbe shortcomings of modern
maids do they realize their own Ignorance of housewifery Is In a great
measure to blame for the existing
state of things? A large proportion
of the servants nowsdsys are Inefficient, careless and devoted to pleasure
aad their own advancement, but surely the reason for this lies partly In
the fact tbat tbey bave never been
taught to do their work properly.
Therefore tbey never take an Intelligent pride In doing It well. Tbey are
aware tbat the majority ot mistresses
•hare tbelr Ignorance as to tbe rlgbt
and wrong ways of doing a thing.
Consequently, tbey perform their dally
tasks lo a slovenly,. Inefficient manner,
wltb tbe pleasing conviction tbat they
will never be found out
Many girls leave homes where both
order and method are unknown and
start, say, as generals In situations
where an Incompetent mistress expects one pair of hands to do more
than can possibly be well done.
It may be that tbe mistress' sole
Idea of housework consists In flicking
about a duster In tbe drawing room—
a performance erroneously termed
dustlng-and thc untaught maid Is
left to manage tbe rest of the house-
bold affairs In the muddling, slovenly
manner practiced In her own home.
Such a girl will probably remain Inefficient for the rest of her days, and
If she marries her husband's bouse
will be quite as uncomfortable as she
made that of her mistress.
In s properly conducted household
•be Is shown how to scrub a floor ln
the proper way; how to sweep a room
without collecting all the dust Into corners and leaving It there. She Is mado
to take an Interest In her work and
very soon a pride In It ns well.
She can be conscientiously rceom
mended when the time comes for her
to better herself, and If she Is so disposed she can always .Main good situations nnd keep them. In larger establishments the nntutored servants'
education naturally depends upon the
other servants, whose business lt Is to
train her. But even here the mistress,
provided sh* herself knows anything
of household matters, csn, tf she wish
es, do a great desl ln the way of super,
vision and encouragement.

Colliers, miners, ssilors, fishers-
all men who come closely into contact with the elemental forces and secrets of nature—are Btrongly disposed
to believe in omens and superstitions.
The Celtic races, which include the

In somo circumstances It become.
Important to criminal aut.ioil.ies and
others to be able to distinguish posi-
tlvely between real and simulated
deafness. Hitherto tbe tests havi
proved unsatisfactory, inasmuch ai
tbey could be cheated by a subject
sufficiently astute.
Now, however, a Russian scientist
has hit on a means as Ingenious as 11
ls convincing. It Is based on tbe theory
that sometimes tbe deaf person enjoys
in advantage over, the ono ln possession of all hit faculties, and this Is the
manner of lt:
Tbe patient, wearing an overcoat,
ttands In front ot tbe observer, but
wltb bis back turned. He ls instructed
to the effect that he should be able to
distinguish tbe feeling of a brusb
passed down over bis back and the
feeling of a hand executing tbe same
movement Tbls fact Is illustrated by
in experiment wltb each, tiie subject
noting the difference In his sensations.
Then the band ts rubbed down the suh
Ject's bock, wbile at the same time tht
observer passes a brush down bis own
coat, wblcb sbould be of material similar to that of the subject's. Next tbt
brush ls passed down the subject's
back; while tbs hand Is moved down
the observer's coat Tbnt the operations are reversed, and these alternations ire continued for tome time.
Soon th* observer wbo is ible to
bear ceases to be ablo to tell wblcb
movement Is going on on bis back.
His brain receives simultaneously an
Impression front bis ean and one from
kit back. In consequence be confuses the two nnd It utterly tt a loss,
Tbe deaf man, however, Is never de.
celved, for the simple reason tbat be
ls compelled to depend wholly on tactile sensation. His brain receives only
tbe one Impression, tbat ot toucb, and
tbercfore be Is easily able to distinguish precisely what It the ctust ot
It, whether brush or thumb. This test

see white birds hovering sround the
pits, for they presage death; and the
collier who goes below alter seeing
them is heroically stout-hearted. The
Welsh collier has. moreover, a prejudice ' aeainst all white animals
through this lear. He would not dare,
for instance, to tempt Providence by
keeping a white cat as a pet, jmd ii
one came to the house he would consider it very unlucky. While doves
flitting about the coal mines are peculiarly ominous.
The bird as an omen of death Is also
held in Ireland (not necessarily a
white bird), where some families are
attended by the phantoms of ravens
before a death. Mr. Yeats has said
that "everyone is a visionary if you
scratch him deep enough. But the
Celt is a visionary without scratching." He lias n note in one ot his
books relating to McManus, of M8
fsme. McManus was sitting with his
brother, who was dying, when a bird
of vulture-like appearance came in
through the window and alighted on
the breast of the dying man. Both
men watched it in terror, but dared
not drive it forth. And there the bird
crouched solemnly, bright-eyed, until
the man's soul left his body. The
incident was worked into a tale by
Le Fanu.
Yorkshire and other colliers regard
whistling as a portentous sound. If
the* miner should thoughtlessly whistle on the way to his work he fancies
that it will evoke "tie Whistlers"—
mysterious, invisible birds that are
supposed to whistle seven times on
the day of a pit accident. Similarly
the Cornishman dreads the sound of
whistling In his mine. Fow, except
the Arab, would understand the collier's horror of a whistle before or
during his work, for in the ordinary
circumstances of life no sound seems
more cheery, friendly, and human
than whistling. To the Arab it is
"the devil's music."
A curious custom prevails among
the Durham colliery women. Whenever they put clean sheets on the bed,
they also place three small bits of
coal on it. If tliey omit to do this,
they think the husband will meet
.with an accident before the sheets are
changed next time.
Many of the Lancashire mines are
supposed to be haunted by the "Bless-
amusing. My mother had a great ud-
nilrotlon for tbe "Curiosities of Literature" and was anxious to mnke the acquaintance of Disraeli's father, but
tbere was a difficulty about tbls, as at
tbe moment he was not on good terms
witb his father.
However, be appeared one day wltb
his father ln tow. As soon aa tbey
were both seated Disraeli turned around
nnd, looking at his father as tf be were
a piece of ornamental china, said to
isy mother: "Madam, I bare brought
you my father. 1 have become reconciled to my futher on two conditions.
Tbe flrst was tbat he sbould come to
see you and the second tbst he Bhould
