THE EABOMETER STONE rt  LN Finland there is a kind of stone  which actually foretells changes in,  the weather: In dry, fme weather  the stone,is"of a dark gray color mottled  with wbito spots, but before approaching showers or**thick iraists it'blackens  all over���most conspicuously, of. course,  at the 'spaces which wore previously  white���and'-gradually i returns to its  former state as the weather improves.  It's prophetic warnings are ^regarded  bj' many as having ,a supernatural  origin, but a recent-analysis of the stone!  explains the" cause and shows that thero  ia nothing whatever mysterious' in its action. It is compoFCd of���a gro'und mass  of clay and fossilized organic matter,  with n little rock salt and nitre scattered throughout in grainR and small  patches. Those' salts absorb the aerial  moisture as it incieases in"amount, and  diicoIve in it. forming black surface  films, while tliey regiiu their white color  as the drier atmosphere evaporates the  moibiure from'them.  THE OSIGIM" OF  COTTON THREAD  OUKIOUSLY enough, it was a war  ,that brought about the revolution  in the manufacture of sewing  thread. When Napoleon occupied North  Germany in 1803, the fcupply of silk  trom, Hamburg, which was used in mat  insr hi'ddles, or the loom harness, in Tais  ley, was' cut off.  Unless some substituto could be found  the weaving industry of Paisley would  be ruined. Peter Clark experimented  with cotton-warp yarn," and succeeded in  making thread like the, six-cord'sewing-  thread used to-day. It took the place  of silk in the licddles.' and the weaving  business went on, uninterrupted by the  wa r. " '  Then it occurred to ano*ther man to  use the cotton thread in place of linen  for sowing, and he recommended it'to  the women of the town. It was so much  smootner than tho linen that the women  liked it. The thread was Bold in hanks  and wound by the purchaser into little  balls, but the merchant soon decided to  w.ind thc hank ou a bobbin or spool  forv his customers, as an added inducement to purchase it instead of the linen.  From this beginning (no cotton thread  trade has grown, and now silk and linen  arc used only for special work.  r THI? RANCHER'S SHEEP-DOG  " f  >       ' i    X  PEOPLE who luivo never enjoyed the  honor  'of   a   collie's intiuiale ae-  quainfaucej ( br�� v, ho, havo   never  visited a sheep-ranch in the  West/* ban  form  no idea of the cleverness, of the  .sheep-dogs.**,    , ,"..-*-  ' One ownei in California asserted that  oach o*f his half-d.ozen.collies' saved liim  fully seventy-five dollars a month in  (wages, and duMits woik far better than  any two men could have done it.  This gentleman's ranch extended over  thousands of acrco-,' while he enclosed in  h's corral'each 'night no fewer than ten  thousand sheep. The corral was simply  a large enclosure suirounded by a solid,  high .brick, 'wall.  While at nightfall one might,liavq opportunity to witness the skill and  cleverness of the dogs inv conducting  their various flocks into' tbef old, it was  in v.tbo mtorning that they best' exhibited ,the"ir extraordinary sagacity.  After breakfast, they , would .make  their way into this corral, the gates'of  which had been left open for ,lhein "a  bSort timo before. Bounding is^among  the 'sheep, each dog singled out his  own paiticulnr flock,, for among those  thousands of animals, as like one another as so many peas, each collie came,  in some subtle .way, to know wh^ch.were.  under his .special care.' By a system of  running, scenting, pushing, crowding",  and elbowing, ho ,finally got h's-ewn  flock'and started for their ,-particular  pasture. Here he.watchod .them through  tjhc'long, day, not allowing,one;tok striiy,  and at e\actly (be.samo hour each night  marshalled*th<yn back to the'corral. '(  y The only point, in which tho dogs  seemed to1 lack .itrflgmout 'was tholr ig-  'noranco of, tW timoi whdn''their Dock's  should bO. taken to new' pastures.'

Cheshire cats,  for inbtance, are uo different from tbose  of other counties, but because ChcMiiio  cheeses us.rd to be made in tbo shape of  cats wilh fixed, broad grins, thc phrase,  "Grinning like a. Cheshire cat oating  cheese," arose.  The phrase, "He's a brick," originated fiom'*an eastern ruli-r, who,-wliile  visi'ting . a neighbouring principality,  asked his host to fchow him the fortifications. Waving his hand towards, his  troops, .which were drawn up in soldierly  array, 'the prince/ said to his guest:  "These aro my fortifications; every man  is a brick." (     ,      i  - The phrase, "Mad as'a hatter," really  moans as'venomous as a viper. "Mad  as'a'hatter".,is simply it corruption of  an ancient form, "Mad as an attcr, or  adder." Mail in this case is generally  synonymous with poisonous".    '  The clause "It suits to a T," meaning it fits, exactly, is as old' as lho  familiar instrument, the T-*sqiiare, or  T-rulo, (so called from-'its resemblance  to the "Tetter T). used by mechanics  asid draughtsmen for making angles tnio  aud for obtaining perpendiculars. The  expresfcion was in common use in the  time of Dr. Johnson, who is quoted by  ^'.oswoll as sayingoof Warburton, "You  see they, have^fitte'd bim to a T."  Many people "are shocked whon tboy  hear the expression so often -used, J'd  don't care a. d^tm.'1'' They tbluH il is  profane. "Tho word "darn," however)  when used with '"T don't care," is'not  in tha luabt profane, and'is equivalent  to sayii.g, "I, don't caro two ,ccnts.."

There are,two accounts of,the origin  of the' expression, " Mind'your'P's and  CJ's.'', According to ono, it arose from  the early method used in 'public-houses  of charging customers for the amount of  beer they had consumed .on'credit.  -.1*'  drives sheep like any other shepherd,  bul merely whibtles to them, and they  follow him.

"BEST SELLERS" IN CHINA  IIINKSE ' transl'itions, of \S'ostern  works arc by no means uncommon  in thc Floweiy Kingdom, but it is  surprising to learn that among the most  popular are those with which our own  youth are ^told "every young person  should bo familiar." Chinese readers  dote on Treasure Island, which they  deem quite equal to Robinson Crusoe,  another favorite in China.'  Ivanhco, Tbo Talisman, Les Miser-  ables, and Uncle Tom 's' Cabin aro also  much read in China, while a translation  of thc "Sherlock Holmes" detcctivo  stories has'found many ro\tdcrs.  Tho western love story is said to im-  buo the Chinese with a profound disgust. He regards the hero of such a  btory as of doubtful sanity, if not of  uncertain morals. This view is due to  tho different bocia,! standards under  which hc has been trained.  EVOLVING THE LEAD-PENCIL  LT is said that the first lead-pencil was  made  in   England   about   two  hundred and  fifty yoars ago.    It wan,  however,  not a.  lead-pencil  at   all,  but  a   graphite   pencil   like   thoso   wc   use  to-day.  firaphitc was discovered in England  during the time of nii/abcth, an I li irdly  were the mine? in lull operation before  tbe idea of makii.g pencils of thp'ir product was conceived. In the early days  the graphite was Kiwcil into this sheets  a ml cut into strips smaller and smaller,  until tbey were simll enough to be covered by wooden slips and thus seive as  ] ci cils.  It is of record thnt the first pencils  crcaic-d quite a sensation.. The graphite-  imiK'H of England wero deemed ol inestimable value and were protr-ctod by  I.iw. But there w,-t��. great waste���first',  in digging, for many of thc pieces wore  too small for cutting, and again in (he  manner of tutting tbo graphite, wluih  was so crude tint half the muteiiul was  lost. fcSo a binding Mibslaneo became mi  urgent  need.  Glue, mucilage, isinglass, and other  substai.C'cs were tried, but tbe grajilnl-*  was biily isndcred brittle'aiid of uneven  hardnens. Its marks'wcre faint and indistinct, andv'in .those' days if the puin.,  broke it was quite an undertaking to  sharpen'it again: First, the wood had to  be cut'away, and the graphite hc-.tud'.  over a light to soft on it.

ONE   of' tho   first   things   that   you  notice Oabout. a    big   prison   liko  I>arkhursti   or    Dartmoor    is ' the  'tameucts of tho birds which haunt the  place.    Sparrows, and jackdaws  hardly  trouble to fly ..out'of-one's-way. ' ;  Oub .reason for thjs is no doubt the.  fact,that there are nt*.\boys'with^catapults* or air guns about* the' premises,  but the. main-reason ii that convict*?,  almost without.!-exception, are kind-to  anit'ials and birds.      '     "    "*-"ir-(.  Eren'the roughest aud most'brutalized men, wao,are a terror to warders and  other prison .officers, will dot molest, fhe  birds, but bri tho other hand will save  crumbs from their daily allowance of  bread, and spread .them on the sills of  their windows for tho benefit of their  feathered friends.  Lord William Neville speaks of a'man  at JParkhurst who had ah extraordinary  gilt tor taming birds. Ho was a lazy1,  good for-Jiothing ruffian, idle lo it de-  giee, and'always in trouble; yet he exer-  lised a soit of'weird fasciiiiitioii over all  kiuas of birds, and his coll was a regular aviaryl  Sparrows and starlings were constantly fluttering in and oul, and would sit  on his hands without betraying the  slightc-d fuar. Prison authorities do not  look with favor upon' this sort oflhiisg,  bui in this man's ease it was found that  his pets exercised so good an effect upon  him that the regulations were not etrict-  ly entorced. v .  " Anotncr favorite prisoner's pet is a  mous-e. Somo timo ugo a party of convicts just releasod from Parkhurst were  noticed to bo turning, their railway carriage absolutely upside dowu.  ' Ic appealed that one ot them had lost  a moubo which had boen his pot for two  years in lho .prison and which he was  taking homo, carrjing it���of all extraordinary places���in his cap! Happily,  master "mouse was discovered behind a  cubbion, and order was, restored.  The house mouse is'"much more difficult to tame ithan the field mouse, yet  many a convict has not only managed  to tame a mouse, but even to teach it  tricks.  It is generally your illiterate, man who  cannot spend bis spare time in reading  who achieves these marvels of taming.  The small animal iB taught to sit up and  beg lor crumbs, to run up his muster'tf  sleove and come out ut his collar, and  at the slightest sign of danger to make  it, bolt'for his owner's pocket.  Sciing that every prisoner is .searched  several times duriig thi* day, and that ai  regular   staff   of   wurdrr^H   is   constantly)  nt work searching cells while they are1  vacant  during  ll'c  day   time,   it might1  seem utterly impossible for a prisonei to '  keep  oven  ho  small  a   pi t   as  a   niouso. I  But  the  fact is that  warders are much  more kind to those in their charge than  is  generally  imagined, .arid   seciiig that  a mouso cannot possibly help u prisoner i  to   esc-ipo,   the   scan her   will   usually,  ri.-i.-s over it even if ho docs happen to,  notice it. '  For another thing, be knows perfectly,  well that, his kindness will be app.rocial- .  ed,  aud   that   the, prisoner will  be   far  moro   obedient   to   nilesy.and   give   less  trouble   if  he   is icft'Tn   possession   of ,  his  pet. '..,,; ���.;"..' '������'���'  If, on the othcr.-li.'ind, the pet is taken ������'  away,  the man   will,  very  likely,' turn  dangerous.    Some years ago a new governor who had  freshly taken charge of  :i   London   local .prisr/n' iss'Wod   tin  order .  for the extermination of all prison pets, j  *.   A warder found, a man  in ' possession '  of, ii  mouso, seized it. ami killed it. The  prisoner  said   nothing  nt* Ihy   time, but  next day he stole an  awl' from the cobbler's Khpp. nnd.'with this weapon stab-  bod   and  killed  the warder.  There is an elderly convict who has  spent most of his life in Dartmoor  prison, and will be back thero shortly  to serve n. fresh sentence, who is the  most  nmazing hand with Bheep.
