The feet of the righteous shed.

He came to the Jordan's tide,
And taking the hand of the Savior
Went up on the other side.

Strange Facts About Animal.

Sheep have no lecth In the upper jaw,

Unlike most animals, horses have no
vyebrows, and hares are minus eye

fixed in its socket and cannot stir in

Did He Cnderatnndt
A well known Edinburgh professor
often became so Interested In his sub
ject that when the noon bell rang he
seemed' quite oblivious of the fact and
kept the class for several minutes. Cer
tain restless spirits among the stu
dents decided to give him a gentle
hint, so thev boucht an alarm clock.
London Tit-Bits tells the result.
The clock, set to alarm at precisely
12 o'clock, was placed on the profess
or's desk. As was anticipated, he be
gun his lecture without observing the
clock. But. when the noon hour struck
the alarm went oft' with a startling
Eveu t ho.-ri' not lu the secret appreci
ated the 1ol;e. There was a round of
applause. The professor smilingly
waited until the alarm and the ap
Dla use ceased and then said:
"Yonne nvnilemen. 1 thank you for
this gift. 1 had forgotten It was my
birthday. An alarm clock is something
mv wife has needed for our servant for
a long time. It is a very kind remem
bra nee on vour part." Then he went
on with the demonstration which had
been inierrtmtrd by the alarm, and the
st ldents were never quite able to sat-
lty themselves whether the professor
understood the joke or not.
