Prof. Lauclatia, of Itome, says the
skyscraper was not Invented In Chi

twelve-story buildings In the Kterunl
City during the reign of Augustus.
What a weary lot the old Unmans who
lived on the top tloors must have been
or did they have elevators, too?
In Chicago some thlves, who were

The divorce ag tatlou that pervades

Tho old legal question of the liability
of Insurance companies where the pol
icyholder commits suicide has been
ruled upon anew by the Federal Court
of Appeals at Ht. Louis In the nlllrma
tlve. Tlio decision lakes new ground.
It doen not nssume that the man whe
kills himself Is necessarily Insane. It
declnres that the cninpnny Is bound tc
pay unless It can bo shown that the de
cedent took out his policy with the In
tentlon of committing suicide a fact
which It would be prnctlcally Impossi
ble to prove. The ruling seems to beat
heavily against the companies, but It
Is more In appearance than in reality.
Few men will commit suicide because
of the knowledge that their heirs will
get their Insurance money. On the
other hand, men will be Induced to In
sure by the knowledge that there will
be no quibbling and wrangling should
they die under circumstances whlcb
might favor the suicide theory. TIk
decision thus favors both sides and It
In accord with public policy. Life In
surance Is one of the blessings of civil
ization. It Is only necessary that the
man who pays premiums year aftei
year shall have every assurance that
his dependents will receive the amount
of his policy without having to light foi
It in the courts.
Whether most people wish well tc
their fellows Is a question of locality
The world over, probably more people
wish each other 111 than good. The sav
age Is cruel and Hellish. The half-civ-lllzed
races aro vain and covetous
Knvy and Jealousy have still a mlghtj
show Iu the politest circles. Yet one
cannot help believing that In prosper
ous, educated communities of our land
tho vast majority of the people aro well
wishers as they meet and greet theli
neighbors. A decidedly major part ol
such a neighborhood are really pained
when misfortune overtakes one of theli
number. The sincerity of the regret It
not to be doubted as they lament one'!
overthrow, or talk In pitying words ol
sickness or bereavement. Tho struggle
of life Is so much the same thing In ev
ery ambitious household, the kuowledg
of what must undoubtedly be the InshK
facts of each home Is so perfect tlinnlu
to our democratic Institutions that the
sympathy of the average American U
real and worth something. The ilnj
may be far off yet when we shnll do n
we would be done by; but we aro get
ting to think of others ns we would be
thought of. The world Is not nearly sc
"cold" as It was when poets Invented
the phrase. Iu trade, do we not prefet
to see each other get on? Whatevei
may be hii 11 of harsh methods, Is there
not a measureless amount of amiable
and chlvalrlc good will among mer
chants? The keen contentions of mod
ern business and professional life wc'
do not believe are so desolating thnt we
aro lapsing Into heathenism. The re
venges of the age of tho knights are
rarely pursued, except among politi
cians. The frank, bustling huslucsf
man is disposed to forget and waste nc
time on "getting even." Injury for the
sake of Injury Is rare In a connnercln'
age. Iu fact, a commercial people take
little stock Iu purely sentimental sins
Tho millionaire who built his own for
tune Is rarely vain. He carries n light
baggage train of likes and dislikes, foi
they do not pay.

Plymouth itock did novel and amusing
things to the Joy of a ear-load of pas
oiigors, on a recent tilp fiom Hraddock
to Pittsburgh. Tho Pittsburgh Com
mercial (lazette tells the story.
Carrying u hen proudly a man who
was evidently a foreigner got on the
trolley-car at Hraddock. He was
drowsy and not quite sober, and he
crossed his legs, set the lieu on his lap
and went to sleep.
Four miles out of Hraddock the hen
suddenly woke from Its own reverie,
and cackled. Its owner opened his eyes
mid found himself and his hen objects
of Interest. He was annoyed; but the
passengers had more or less excuse for
staling; they had discovered a fresh
egg testing snugly on the man's lap.
No one could speak tho man's
language, but every one was bound
that he should know what had happen
ed. Twenty Index tlugeis pointed to
the hen, and forty eyes were turned in
the same direction. Finally the stran
ger lifted the hen tenderly, and tho se
cret was revealed.
Then he was wide awake. With his
left baud he held the egg aloft, that all
might see; with his right hand ho af
fectionately stroked the hen. Hvery
body smiled. All at once It seemed ta
occur to him that refreshments were
In order. He grinned at his fellow
passengers, tapped the shell on the seat
to open a way to tho Interior, and
swallowed tho egg.
I'ncle V.ek'el Wotson was accustomed
to seeing good-sized squtucs of cup
cake or gingerbread on the supper
table, and when he had his tlrst pinto
of leo-crenin In a city restaurant ho
looked with some disfavor upon tho
macaroons and small sponge-drops
which accoinpa tiled It.
"How do you llko It?" asked his niece,
who was doing the honors of tho city
for her uncle.
"The Icecrcnin Is tlrst-rnte," and
Undo '.ek'el. "I call It extry good;
but when j ou come to these things," ho
added, llffng one of the sponge "lady
tlugeis" and surveying It doubtfully.
"I presume to say they're nil right
enough what there Is of em, but thero
isn't enough of 'em Just uotulug but
Kayo uud b allow!"
