They Were Often Quadrangular and
Made of Thin Iron Plates. .
There are several old bells In Scot
land. Ireland and Wales, The oldest are
often quadrangular, being made of
thin iron plates which have been ham
merM and riveted together. At the
monastery of St. Gall In Switzerland
the four sided bell of the Irish mission
ary St! Gall, who lived in the seventh
century. Is still preserved, but more
aucirat still is the bell of St. Patrick
in Belfast, which is ornamented with
gold and gems and silver filigree work.
The curfew bell is that about which
most has been written and said. It
has been thought that it was ouly used
in England, but it was quite common
on. I he continent in the middle ages.
The ringing of bells by rope is still
very popular in England, especially in
the country, where almost every ham
let, however small, has its church with
its peal of bolls, which are often re
markably well rung. The first real
peal, of bells in England was-sent by
Pope Calixtus III. to King's college,
Cambridge, and was for 300 years the
largest peal in England. About the
beginning of the year 1500 sets of eight
bells were hung in a few of the large
In the middle cf the seventeenth cen
tury a man named White wrote a fa
mous work oh bells in which he intro
duced the system of numbering them
1. 2. 3. 4. etc.. on slips of paper in dif
ferent orders, according to the changes
intended to be rung. It Is calculated
that to ring all the changes upon twenty-four
bells at two strokes a second
would take 117 billion years.
One of the most famous bells in the
world is the first great bell of'Moseow.
which now stands in the middle of a
square In that city and Is used as a
chapel. This bell was cast in 1733, but
was in the earth fee over a hundred
years, being raised in 183G by the Em
peror Nicholas. It is nearly twenty
feet high, has a circumference of sixty
feet, is two feet thick and weighs al
most 200 tons. The second Moscow
bell, which is the largest bell in the
world that is actually in use, weighs
128 tons. There are several bells ex
tant which weigh ten tons and over; of
which Big Ben. the largest bell in Eng
land, weighing between thirteen and
fourteen tons, is one. Big Ben is un

Picture Made by a Cave Man Millions
of Years Ago.
Long ago, so long that even a scien
tist would hardly dare venture a guess
as to the date, a man clad with only
a wild beast's skin about his loins was
sitting at the mouth of a cave in one
of the rocky highlands in what is now
southern France. He" was scratching
with a sharp flint on the fragments
of an ivory tusk, perhaps picturing for
some youthful admirers adventures
through which he had passed or ani
mals he had slain. That, ivory chip
was stored away as a treasure, to be
lost and forgotten after the cave man's
death. One day a man named Lartet,
digging in the cavern floor, found it.
On it was scratched a very fair rep
resentation of the hairy elephant.

paleolithic picture is a true copy. Not
only has this ancient sculptor given us
a sample of the earliest art, but he has
left us, more valuable than all. a his
torical record, of his time, for this
rude picture is simply a page from the
cave man's history which,, translated
into twentieth century English, says.
"Men. thinking men. were contempo

No record that any of humankind
have ever left Is half so ancient as
this. : The oldest; Egyptian papyrus- is
a thing of yesterday, compared to this
paleolithic sculpture. While the cave
man was living in Europe the valley
of the Nile was yet only a wild waste.
