A BRAVE LADY.
Among the Interesting Incidents
that have just come to light concern
ing the October panic in New York
City, li one of an old lady who
pushed her way through the linei of
depositors who cordoned the build
ing. That was the day when the
newsboys were admonished not to
yell the tale of failure! too loudly in
The policeman were instating that
the old lady could not itep out of the
place In line which rightfully belong
ed to late-comer, but ihe glanced at
the keeper of the peace with disdain,
that was increased teven-fold when
he turned to their depoalti. "

Who ele can you be, madam?
You really mutt take your place in
"I shall never take my place in that
line," the responded, positively. "I
am not a withdrawer; I have here
thousand dollars of my savings which
I intended to place in this bank today,
just to show these people that I have
every confidence in our public insti

IMPORTS OF CEMENT CEASE.
Dr. August Dyckerhoff, a noted
German authority on cement, has
been traveling in America, and in a
recent Iniorvirw I ntmtixl ai fnllnwi
by Cement Age on the subject of the
decline in German cement importa
tions; "Germany's cement export to
the United States has almost entirely
ceased. Since the American cement
manufacturers have introduced the

MEN 0: EARLIER AGES.
Were They the Mental ' Peers of the
Men of Today t
The genen I idea that our enormous
advances in iriice and command over
nature serve as demonstrations of our
mental superiority to the men of ear
lier ages I touUy .unfouDded. Tbe
evidence of history and of the earliest
monuments alike goes to Indicate that
our Intellectual and moral nature baa
not advanced lu any perceptible degree.
In the Mcond place, we And that the
supposed great mental Inferiority of
savages la equally unfounded. The
more they are sympathetically studied
the more they are found to resemble
ourselves In tbelr Inherent Intellectual
Even the so long despised Australian
savage, almost the lowest In materia)
progress, yet show by their complex
language, their social regulutlona and
often by an Innate nobility of char
acter Indications of a very similar In
ner nature to our own. It they pos
sess fewer philosophers and moralists,
they are also free from so largo a
proportion of unbalanced minds Idiots
and lunatics as we possess. On the
other band, we fiud lu the higher Ta
ctile types men who, though savages
aa regards material progress, are yet
generally admitted to be physically, In
tellectually and morally our equals, If
not our superiors. Thirdly, we
have no proof whatever that even the
men of the stone age were mentally or
morally Inferior to ourselves. Alfred

Instinct and Reason.
Instinct la the generic term for all
those faculties ot mind which lead to
the performance of actions that are
adaptive In character, but pursued
without necessary kuowledge of tne re
lation between the means employed
niul the ends attained. Reason refers
to those notions that are adaptive in
character and that are pursued with
knowledge of the relation between the
means employed and the enda aimed
at Such is the tocunlcul statement of
the difference between Instluct and rea
son, but the real, basic difference be
tween the two faculties la unknown
and probably tinltnowable.-New York
