OLD STORY MERELY LEGEND
Nothing to Bupptrt B.llef That Belie,
ariut Wat Raductd to Btggary
In Old Age.
BellHiirlua was the chief military
commander of the Emperor Justinian,
and probably one of the greatest gen
erala of history. He was born In 508
and died In tm, spending, In Ms life
time, neurly forty years In military
service, in dohiierly skill renewed
for a time the undent mllllfirv irturv
of Home, and he earned the title of
"The Afrlcanus of New Borne," Ilia j
career ax a general Is divided Into two
epochs, the war against the Vandals
and that against the Goths. In both
wars be was so successful that he was
given a triumphal entry Into the city
of Constantinople the then Itoman
capital the first that had graced that
city, and the first In any part of the
empire since the days of Tiberius.
Like many another favorite of a
great ruler, Bellsarlus was finally the
victim of false accusatlpn of con
spiracy, end was degraded and re
duced to poverty. Arouad his last
years many legends arose. The best
known of these is that he wandered,
blind and destitute, from door to door,
asking alms and crying "Date obolum
Bellsarlo" ("A penny for General
Bellsarlus"). Hl sufferings have
been the subject of numeroua-llferary,
artistic and musical couiposlMona that
have kept alive this story, which Is
entirely without foundation.
MUSIC THE BEST OF TONICS
Aflvising a Writer.
I have no means of knowing
whether you are patient lu the pursuit
of this art ; but I urn Inclined to think
that you are not, und that you do not
discipline yourself enough. When one
Is Impelled to write this or that, one
has still to consider: "How much of
this will tell for what I mean? How
much of It Is my own wild emotion
and superfluous energy how much re
mnlna that Is truly belonging to this
Idea' character und these Ideal circum
stances?" It Is In this laborious strug
gle to make this distinction, and In the
determination to try It, that the roud
to the correction of faults lies. Ter
Imps I may remark, In support of the
sincerity with which T write this, that
am un Impatient and Impulsive per
son mvseir. nut mat it nas oeen ior
inuny years the constant effort of my
life to practice at my desk what I
preach to you. Dickens.
The Singer and the Song. .
A song is u great adventure. Thou
ninds write it, tens succeed ; and when
they have succeeded, Its fate still lies
entirely with the singer. No one ever
had it so much In his power to make
I the worse apiwur the better cause, or
I to refrain from so doing. The nncieuts
placed Tlmtlirrls nnd Xnrada among
the gods; the moderns pay the.r coun
terparts royalties. Hut the singer's
lersonullty Is still Incalculable in
terms of canonisation or of cash. That
nersonallty means all that he has been
able to crowd Into his life ; and he may
still enlarge It. A good way to do thnt
is to rend all the poetry that he does
not sing, and to listen to all the inusdc
written for some other Instrument
than the voice. A. H. Fox Strang-ways.
Nothing in tht Way of Medicine Can
$o Effectually Cure a Nervout ,
A well-known doctor says there Is
but little use in taking so-called "ton
ics" for a "run-down" or nervous con
dition. When one has been overworked
there Is nothing better for this than
music. In music we have one of the
finest tonics in the world, and, skill
fully applied, it has been known to
work wonders with those suffering
from nervous disorders.
Even the performances given by
amateur societies have been known to
benefit Jaded nerves, but the best re
sults ere obtained from high-class In
strumental music played by those who
have a wide knowledge of tone values.
If you are musically Inclined, don't
imagine because you feel "fagged out"
after a day's work that an hour or two
at the piano Is going to be too much
As often as not you will find thnt
you will be materially benefited, not so
much, perhaps, because you have been
playing particularly restful music, hut
because the mind has been brought In
to direct contact with a diversion.
So If you nre feeling depressed and
your nerves Jaded, remember that one
of the surest ways of making yourself
fit again Is to go and henr some good
music. There is plenty of it about to
day, and the price of admission is sure
ly worth a week of sleepiess nights.

Kid dlove Penwipers.
You can make penwipers out of old
kid gloves and use them at the next
church fair. Cut up the gloves Into
circles, using hiefly the backs and
wrists. Stitch all strongly together
through the center. Then take a good
long cork and stick it in the center of
the top layer of circles, sewing it in
place. Next, take sealing wax, one
bright color, or several colors, as you
prefer. Drop It on the top of the cork,
letting it run down the cork to te
penwiper, turning the cork round and
round so that It Is nearly covered with
sealing wax. The cork, covered with
sealing wax, forms the handle. For
the top round of the penwiper pick out
a specially nice piece of kid and scal
lop it all around the edge, or take a
bit of bright cloth to match one of the
sealing wax colors.

"Tell It to the Marinet."
The body of men called marines,
"soldiers and sailors too," were origi
nally enlisted for service on board
ship to defend naval officers from the
bluejackets, who in those early days
were generally mea of the lowest class
and worst character, who were seized
by the press-gang and bound unwilling
ly to the ships for a term of years.
The expression, "Tell It to the ma
rines," Is applied sarcastically to the
teller of a more than usually unlikely
story, but this arose merely from the
fact that all . sailors thought them
selves more shrewd and less easily Im
posed upon than landlubbers, and the
marine was conveniently handy on

Solomon's Magic Carpet.
The story of Prince Ahmed tells
how the magic carpet of Tangu would
transport any one who sat on It to the
place he wished to reach. s .
Its counterpart appears in the
Koran. King Solomon, It Is told, had
a carpet with the snine magic quality.
It was made of green silk and on It
wus placed his throne when he wished
to travel. Spirits stood on the left
hand of the king, and on his right
stood men and women. Then Solomon
told the wind where he wished to go,
and Immediately the carpet rose into
the air with all who stood upon it,
and traveled swiftly to Its destination,
while birds with outstretched wings
flew overhead to screen the royal
presence frgm the sun.
