Ore (ion Journal» Palls City News R. E .W il l ia m s , President American Duel. In the year 1630 occurred the first duel known to have taken place on American soil. The principals, Edward Doty and Edward Leister, were servants of a Mr. Hopkins, one of the New England colonists. The men had quarreled over some trifling matter and resorted to the field for its settlement. The affair was stopped bv the authorities, but not before one had been wounded in the thigh and the other in the hand There was no law covering such matters, but the governor of the province decided that the men should be punished nevertheless. At his orders they were sent to have their heads and feet tied to gether and lie in that condition twenty-four hours without food or drink. vThey suffered so much, however, that they were released at the end of an hour. Th* Story of Zero. The word “ zero” is from the Spanish and means “ empty,” hence nothing. It was first used for a thermometer in 1795 by a Prussian named Fahrenheit. By experiment ing with snow and salt Fahrenheit found that he could produce a de gree of cold equal to that of the coldest winter day. It happened that the day on which he made hia final experiment was the coldest anybody could remember, and, struck with the coincidence of hia scientific discovery, he hastily con cluded that he had found the low est degree of temperature, either natural or artificial. He called the degree “ zero” and constructed a thermometer graduating up from zero to boiling point, which he num bered 212 and the freezing point 82.

The members lived in com mon and devoted themselves to study and gratuitous teaching. They soon attained a European reputa tion as a faculty of theology, their judgment frequently being appeal ed to from the fourteenth to the seventeenth centuries. The influ ence of the Sorbonne was declining when the society was broken up in 1789. The buildings are now de voted to education. Declined th* Bequeet. Occasionally somebody make* a will bequeathing money to help pay off a national debt. In 1733 Colonel Thomas Norton of Southwick, Eng land, bequeathed $150,000 for this patriotic purpose Probate was op posed, and the judge who tried the case decided that the colonel was in sane, such a legacy being “ only as a drop of water poured into the sea.” The legacy was therefore divided among the members of the Norton family.
