RAINING THE MEMORY.
ought to be a valuable daily
•ise for school children to pre-
I summaries of the news as it
in the papers. The experi-
is being tried in Washington
and will probably be repeated
her cities. Properly conducted,
ould produce two desirable con-
I'nces. The first and obvious
is that boys and girls will form
h11bit of attending to what is
going on in the world at the age
when their minds are plastic and
their interest capable of discipline.
The second reason is more im
portant perhaps. Reading the news
under the guidance of their teach
ere, the children will learn to dis
criminato between the important
and the trivial. They will form the
habit of passing lightly over the
ephemeral and laving up sketches
of weighty occurrences as lasting

dinar? memory resemble« an old
New Eugland garret more than an
orderly storeroom. It contains a
little of everything without arrange
meut and the trivial is retained
just as securely as the momentous.
Comparatively few people know
how to remember. The common idea
is that a good meory is one which
retains everything. This is a mis
take. A good memory is really one
that knows how to drop that which
is useless. Persons who are said to
po&tesH tremendous powers of mem
ory seldom retain mere fact« better
than others, but they are able to
classify and forget what is of no
value to them.
A weak memory
whose contents are well arranged is
vastly preferable to a strong one
in which there is no discrimination.
Men who have a great deal of ac
curate work to do are not apt to
depend a great «leal upon their
memories, for the best are mislead

“Pay Day” Overalls
Serve You Best!
By T. T. Maxey
It ha» been said that our everyday
life 's largely fixed by the sound of
bells of one kind or another, but It re
mained for Mr. Frank Miller of River
side, Cal., who had a hobby of col
lecting bells, to assemble the largest
collection of bells on earth.
Each hell has a history of Interest
and romance. Among the noteworthies
In this collection of approximately 450
A bronze bell of graceful lines, dated
1702, which long hung In the tower of
the New Orleans cathedral and later,
by a peculiar turn of fate, served on
the jhll In the same city. A goat bell
of pleasing tone, the only one of Its
kind, found in the Swiss, Italian or
French Alps, thought to be more than
one hundred years old. A church bell
dated 1770, which, no one knows how
long, served the master of a castle In
Scotland. A facsimile of ‘'Big Ben,”
the largest clock-tower bell In the
world, which hangs In the tower of
the house of parliament In London. An
Iron horse bell from Norway—thought
to have been made about 1750. A
bronze gong, said to be more than
eighteen hundred years old, which
came from a temple In China. A bronze
bell which belonged to a ship that
sailed from Boston in 1755. The ship
was wrecked, but. after lying at the
bottom of the ocean for almost 100
years, the bell was recovered. The
town crier’s bell which awakened the
good people of Bedford, Mass., the
night on which the patriot, Paul Re
vere, made his famous ride. An an
cient. acorn-shaped dog bell from
China. A gong from Borneo, used In
native war dances. \Au old-fashioned
Roman bell which was unearthed In
the ruins of Herod’s palace at Aeca-
lon. An antiquated, cup-shaped bell
from Mecca—that sacred city of Ma
homet, In Arabia. An ornamented brass
Roman cow bell Inscribed, in Latin,
“Paul. Third, Most Holy Supreme Pon
tiff", Indicating ownership by a pope
who died In 1540. A bell, cracked and
clnpperless, carrying an Inscription
showing the date of manufacture to
have been the year 1247, said to be
the oldest dated bell known and to
have been made or used In Spain. This
bell wns in existence 245 years before
Columbus discovered America.
And last, but by no means the least,
the forefather of the bell family, a
“clink stone", which, suspended from
a rope and struck wtth a mallet, gives
off a ringing sound. The "clink stone”
was the earliest form of bell known.
It was used, It Is thought, as early as

Faunces Tavern at the southeast
comer of Broad and Poarl streets tn
New York City Is one of the oldest
buildings In that great city.
Built In 1710 as a residence for a
Mr. DeLancey, fate decreed that It
should play a prominent part on ao
many Important occasions that It has
naturally won for Itself a place of
prominence among the most dis
tinguished landmarks of our time.
History records that In 1757 this
building was being used as a store
room anti warehouse. Later it became
the property of a West Indian gentle
man who was known as "Black Sain,”
from whom Samuel Pounces purchased
It In 1762. Three years later It passed
to a new owner apd In 1768 the organi
zation of the Chamber of Commerce
was effected here. Faunces again be
came the owner of this much-traded
building In 1770 and In it conducted a
tavern—a gathering place for those
gentleman and ladles who wished to
favor him with their company.
A shot from a man-of-war struck
this building In 1775, following which
Faunces Joined the American army.
Later he again secured ownership of
this hotel and continued In possession
of It for a number of years.
In 1788 General George Washington
was banqneted here by Governor Clin
ton of New York state, and In thia
same building during the same year
General Washington took his leave
of his forty-four officers.
Faunces sold this building In 1785
and It later passed through a series
at ownerships and usages. In 1882 the
Interior was damaged by Are. Twenty
years later It became known ns the
Broad Street House. Subsequently it
was visited by a disastrous Are and
«till later two stories were added to It
The venerable building was once
more restored and In 1007 It was dedi
cated by the Sons of the Revolutloo.
Restored to Its former appearance and
Interior arrangement, the present
structure Is practically as It was dur
ing the Revolutionary period. The
first floor 1» »till used as a restaurant,
the second containing the celebrated
long room where General Washington
took leave of bls faithful lieutenants
of Revolutionary fame and the third
being occupied as a museum contains
