bis father died, and his mother waa left
with three small children to support by
ber needle. Seven rears utur she moved
north, settling in Cleveland, where with
only eighteen months' schooling John was
thrown on his own resource at the age or
thirteen. He did chores of all kinds, cur
ried hones, sawed wood, waited in nwtaa
rants and worked as store porter until out
of his earnings he had saved enough to buy
comfortable home In a central part of
the city, where his mother, now seventy
eight years of age, still lives.
Then at the age of twenty-two he re

enough money for clothes and books and
began working his way .through the
Cleveland Central high school, tie waa
graduated in leas than three years at the

Had be not been brought to a certain ex

have enjoyed the popularity which usually
comes to a correct living, right thinking
and amiable nobleman in England. It is
true that be has not those qualities likely
to set river afire, bnt he is far better than
the average man or nobleman. His royal
brothers-in-law were so opposed to his ap
pearing in a conspicuous position in the
procession from St. James' palace to West
minster when the queen celebrated her ju
: bilee that they mounted him on a bucking
' horse that succeeded in unseating Lome
before the procession had passed the palace
gates. They have snubbed him on every
possible occasion, and other people taking
the pattern from royalty have done the
same thing so far as they could. And yet
Lord Lome is better and an abler man

HEATING A HOUSE.
Consumption of Fuel la Not the Only
Consideration In Keeping Warm.
How beet to keep a house warm is
a question that every cold and biting
"wave" forces upon the attention ot
many a housekeeper. People gener
ally imagine that with those to whom
economy in fuel is no great object
the problem is simple enough and is
only a question of using more or less
cool. As a matter of fact, however,
the consumption of fuel is not the
only chief factor; the exclusion of
cold and understanding how fully to
utilize the heat obtained by the vari
ous fires is quite as important The
importance of the former aids to
warmth in a house is well exempli
fied in those northern countries where
neoessity is the Law of existence and
where we read of the Greenlander's
hut with an inside temperature of 90
clegs., the only fire being from a piece
of walrus fat, while outside it may
be 40 degs. below zero.
We would find, however, but few
advocates of this degree of exclusion
of fresh air and ventilation, and the
fewer the better, no doubt. Whole
some ventilation is of vast impor
tance, but it should enter our houses
through the channels provided for
it, and not under the doors and
through the window joints. People
who reside in town and are protected
by their neighbors on either side,
with only the front and renr ex
posed, have but a simple prol iem to
encounter. But to those who live in
the country in frame houses, whose
defenseless walls are exposed in ev
ery direction to the cutting wintry
blasts, the subject is a very serious
In the west it is a common custom
to bank earth around the house to the
depth of several feet, and a single
loot oi manure placed m tnis way
adds greatly to the warmth besides
affording protection to the vines and
plants. In old houses whose win
dow casings and door lintels have be

possible to insert weather strips.
in heating, rurnaces are oi course
the chief factors. Of these there are
many kinds, and we are told succes
sively that each one is the best
People themselves, too, differ great
ly as to what is the best method of
heating a house, some preferring
the hot air furnace, which seems,
on the whole, to be more popular
than any other contrivance, and
others finding steam or hot water
more satisfactory. 'There is this al
ways to be remembered, however
no hot air furnace will carry heat sat
isfactorily through a pipe running
any distance in a lateral direction.
For a rambling bouse, therefore,
where there is but one furnace, hot
water or steam will give a more dif
fused heat The somewhat primitive
but most effective base burning stove
will be found a capital supplement to
the hot air furnace, and if arranged
with a "drum" and a register in the
floor above will be nearly as effica
cious as a second furnace.
Modern science has also managed
to utilize the waste heat from down
stairs open fireplaces in the rooms
above in the most admirable fashion,
making every fire heat a second
room as well as the one in which it is
laid; and when one considers the

Bow Sleigh Bells Are Hade.
The ma King oi sleigh bells is
quite an art" says an iron founder.
The Little iron ball is too big to be
put m through the holes in the bell,
and yet it is inside. How did it get
there? The little iron ball is called
the jinglet' When you shake the
sleigh bell it jingles. - In making the
bell the jinglet is put inside a little
ball of mud, just the shape of the in
side. of the bell. Then a mold is
made, just the shape of the outside
of the belL This mud ball with the
jinglet inside, is .placed in the mold
of the outside, and the metal is poured
in, which fills up the- space between
the ball and the mold.
"When the mold is taken off you
see a sleigh bell, but it will not ring,
as it is full of dirt The hot metal
that the bell is made of dries the dirt
so that it can be shaken out After
the dirt is all shaken out of the holes
in the bell the little iron jinglet will
still be in the bell and will ring. It
took a good many years to think out'
how to make a sleigh bell." Lewis
In a recent examination some boys
were asked to define certain words
and to give a sentence illustrating the
meaning. Here are a few : Frantic
means wild; I picked some frantic
flowers. Akimbo, with a crook ; I had
dog with an akimbo in his tail. Ath
letic, strong ; vinegar was too athletic
to use. Tandem, one behind another;
the boys sit tandem at school.
And then some single words are
funnily explained: Dust is mud with
the wet squeezed out; fins are fishes'
wings; monkey, a small boy with a
tail; stars are the moon's eggs; cir
cumference is distance around the
middle of the outside. London Tit

HE CURES BY FAITH.
A Priest Whose Fame Ras Spread Be
yond the Limits of Brooklyn.
I The city of Brooklyn is just now talking
of the remarkable cures e tree tea by, or,
as the priest would prefer it, through,
Father Thomas Adams, of 144 South
Fourth street. While he has been practic
ing the healing art for many years, the fact
onlv became eenerally known recently.

be exact, ha has

breaths per minute, whereas the average
man contents himself with 18.
Besides this affection, which made life a
burden to McCarthy, he was also subject
to fits of temporary unconsciousness, and
could go nowhere without an attendant.
He consulted the best medical talent in the
country, but could obtain no relief, and
the possibility of death came to be, to
him, not an altogether unwelcome contin
gency. Some one advised him to see
Father Adams, and more with a spirit of
resignation than hope he called on the
priest. He was Informed that there was
no certainty of cure, but that if he
would put his entire trust in God it might
please him to hearken to his prayers.
; At the foot or a little altar in the back
room Father Adams and McCarthy prayed
Ifervently, Then the suppliant was rubbed
with the relics, through which the priest
believes that the Almighty Is pleased to
bless his efforts in behalf of suffering hu
manity. When the hotel keeper arose
there was no perceptible change for the
better, but hope had displaced despair, and
he returned to his place of business in
more cheerful frame of mind than he bad
known in three years. At 5 o'clock that
afternoon the stertorous breathing sud
denly ceased, and since then his respiration
has been about the same as that of any
person In good health.
Father Adams has scores of visitors each
day now, and asks no fee, only taking
money when it .is voluntarily offered by
those who, be knows, can afroftr-Wi-'r.He. la
probably the most sought after man in
Brooklyn today. McCarthy will shortly
be exhibited at a clinic of medical students.

salesman. His wife is an amateur actress.
Recently Mr, Flint returned from a western
trip, and his wife in rummaging through
bis trunks came across pair of black silk
tights, such as dancers and other actresses
use on the stage. When Mr. Flint came
home his wife asked for an explanation.
He desired to postpone making any at that
time. This excited Mrs. Flint's jealousy
and a quarrel ensued. Mr. Flint was re
quested to leave the house and did so. In

Origin of the Mathematical Signs.
The sign of addition is derived from
the initial letter of tbe word "plus.
in making the capital letter it was
made more and mora carelesslv until
the top part of the p was placed near
the center, hence the plus sign was
. The sign of subtraction was derived
from the word minus. lhe word
was 'first contracted to m n s, with a
horizontal line above to iudicato the
contraction, then at last the- letters
were omitted altogether, leaving the
snort line .
Tbe multiplication siirn was obtain
ed by changing the plus sign into the
letter A. I his was done because mul
tiplication is but a shorter form of ad
Division was formerly indicated by
placing uie uiviuenu auove tue uori
rontal line and the divisor below. In
order to save space in printing the
dividend was placed to the left and
the divisor to the Tight, with a simple
dot in place of each. Tbe radical sign
was derived Irom the initial letter of
tbe word "radix."
The sign of equality was first used
in 1S57 by a sharp mathematician, who
substituted it to avoid repeating equal

The Origin of the Diamond.
The diamond is still one of the
mysteries, of geology. When the
South African fields were discovered
there was much astonishment to find
the gem in a series of minerals quite
different from those in which it had
been hitherto found in' India and
Brazil Instead of lying beside tour
maline, anatase and brookite, it was
mingled with a breccia of magnesian
rocks which had evidently been
pushed up from below, and a great
variety of minerals, Biich as diojwide,
mica, zircon and corundum, were im
bedded along with it.
Some have supposed that the dia
mond was originally formed where
it is now picked up, and the presence
of carbureted gas and carboniferous
rocks is in favor of the idea; but, on
the other hand, the broken condition
of some of the stones, and other facts.
make it far more probable that the
diamond lias been ejected from a
deeper source. Good News.

from bis pocket, and laying them
