Papa In tho Same Idst,
A gentleman formerly in tho servico
of tho United States navy married
Japanese beauty a few years ago and
settled down to domestic lif o in the Land
of tho Rising Sun.
Only a few months ago an old chua
of his, an officer on ono of our ships of
war, went to call upon him at his home
in Nagasaki. Whilo waiting in tho room
which might correspond to the parlor in
this country he heard the prattlo of
child in tho adjoining apartment Said
"Who is tho foreign devil that has
conio to seo papa?"
"Hush," said tho nurse. "Tho gen
tleman might overhear yon. Hois a fel
low countryman of your father's."
"Well, papa is a foreign devil too."
This incident would seem to show
that certain colloquial phrases havo sur
vived tho feeling of hatred for foreign

The Primitive Fishhook.
Tho first implement used by man for
catching fish with a line was not a hook.
It was a pointed piece of bone or flint,
a simplo baitholder, and tho line, possi
bly a length or so of somo dried vine or
grass, was tied to tho middle of tho
piece. The fish swallowed tho whole
bait, bono and all, and so tho first im
plcmcnt was what wo wonld call a gorgo
hook today. In timo bronze was substi
tuted for bone, but tho form of tho first
implement was retained. Untold ages
passed beforo tho first fishhook was
made, and, strangely enough, when
prong was fashioned on tho hook, tho
prou turned outward and not inward.

Twin Brothers at Wesleran University,
Who Can't Be Told Apart,
Arthur and Archer Young of New-
Britain, twin brothers who aro as alike
as two copper cents or as tho proverbial
peas in a pod, entered Wesleyan uni

class, and tho difficulty of distinguish

Tho Young brothers say that th6 joke,

In college chapel they sit next to each

varsity football team, and though they
aro not heavy they have distinguished
themselves as being about tho pluckiest
players on tho eleven. They wear simi
lar bandages wrapped around their tow
colored heads, and their sleeveless jack

of their jerseys. The other day in a
practice game tho ball was fumbled in
a scrimmage, and ono of tho twins fell
on it. Archer wa3 playing half back on
