An lntrting 8tudy From Hlatorl
and Pictorial Viewpoint.
Quite apart from their use lo vari

rstlus study from historic and pic
torial points of view. Take first their
numerical arrangement C2 cards, 305
ils or dots and 13 tricks, representing
the weeks and days in the year and the
There are four suits, representing
four classes of people aa they were di
vided at the time the pack of cards
we now use was devised by the French.
The "spades" stood for plkemen or sol
diers, the clubs for clover, typifying
farmers; the diamonds for building
tiles, representing artisans, and the
hearts for cholrmen or ecclesiastics.
The "kings" and "queens" at that
time were more or less correct likeness
of certain royal and noble personages.
Even in our modern packs It is said
that one of the queens is a convention
alized portrait of Elizabeth of York,
who was engaged to the dauphin of
The "knaves" were then the king's
Jesters, and even these cards may be
portraits. All the court cards, in fact,
retain their sixteenth century charac
teristics. Cards are among the few
things that have not changed with the
centuries. Brooklyn Eagle.
8ummed Up In Four Motto Bona
part Larnd at School.
In 17S4 Bonaparte, then fifteen years
old, arrived at the military school of
Paris from Brlenne, being one of four
under the conduct of a minim priest.
He mounted 173 steps, carrying his
small valise, and reached. In the attic,
the barrack chamber he was to occupy.
This chamber had two beds and a
small window opening on the great
yard of the school. The young prede
cessors of Bonaparte had bescrawled
the whitewashed walls with charcoal,
and the newcomer could read In this
little cell these four Inscriptions, which
we ourselves read there years ago:
An epaulet Is very long to win.
The nnest day in life is that of a bat
tle. Vlcomte de Tlntenlac
Life is but a prolonged He. Le Che
valier Adolphe Delmas.
The end of all is six feet of earth.
Le Comte de la Vlllette.
With the trifling substitution of the
word "empire" for "epaulet" these four
sentences contain the whole destiny of
Bonaparte and formed a kind of
"Mene, Tekel. Upharsin," written In
advance upon that wall. Victor Hugo.
Danger In Paint
"Turpentine and benzine." saya a de
partment of agriculture bulletin, "are
very inflammable, and special precau
tions should be taken not to bring
paint containing these substances near
any light or open Are. Many pig
ments are poisonous, and the work
man should be particularly careful to
remove all pnlnt stains from the skin
and not under any circumstances al
low any of it to get Into his month.
A man should not eat In the same
clothes in which he has been painting
and before eating should not only
change his clothes, but wash all paint
stains from bis skin. It Is not advis
able to use turpentine or benzine In
removing paint stilus from the hands,
but by oiling thoroughly with linseed
oil or In fact with any atty oil and
then thoronchly washing with soap
the pnlnt may be removed, provided
It has not been allowed to dry too
thoroughly on the hands."
