Ancient Greeks' Prsyer Charm.
Great value lias always been at
tached to rare and beautiful stones,
but with primitive people the intrinsic
value waa less than the supernatural
virtue credited to them. Stones were
favored a a charms, but among the
early Greeks none was rated as hav
ing the power of compelling the gods
to answer prayer except rock crystal.
This was used as a burning stone,
and the founder of perhaps the cur
liest recorded temple mysteries.
Onomacrltus, gives exact directions
for producing sacred lire. A bright
transparent piece of crystal was to
be laid on dry wood In brilliant sun
shine. He says the god appears first
with smoke, then with a little smolder
ing fire, then with a burst of flame.
This was holy fire from the sun's rays.
"Whoso goes Into the temple with
this in his hand may be quite sure
of having bis prayer granted ns the
gods cannot withstand Its power," he
told his followers.

KNOWN AS PROTESTANT POPE
8obrlquet Bestowed on Clement XIV
When He Suppressed the
Order of Jesuits.
Poite Clement XIV bears the so
brlfjuet of "the Protectant l'oe," al
though he wh by no. means a mem
ber of the I'rotestsnt faith. He earned
this title by a bull which he Issued In
177;!, ordering the suppression of the
Order of the Jesuits. This se;ned to
the devout Cutbollc a concession to
I'rotestantlsin, and lhue Clement waa
given his tltl.
The Jesuit order was established
In 15.'i7 by Ignatius Loyola, and Us
chief alia was t'i establish the power
of the pope and to preserve It against
the ut tucks of the Prot estants. It
grew to be the most powerful Hocluty
of the iCoaian Catholic church, gain
ing Its Influence principally through
the excellent mcIiooIh which Its mem
bers founded and maintained. Its
potency grew to such an extent that
the temporal authorities took alarm
and, In 1773, France, Spain, Portugal.
I'arma. Naples and Austria prevailed
upon Pope Clement, to Issue his bull
abolishing the order. It was re-established
by I'ope Plus VII Immediate
ly ufter the full of Napoleon In 1815,
and Is now In a thriving condition in
all countries where the Koman'church
has adherent. The order has been
distinguished throughout Its exist
ence for the great learning and schol
arship possessed by Its members.
DECREED REST FROM LABOR
Saxon Monarch, a Thousand Years
Ago, Instituted Custom of Satur
day Half Holiday.
A thousand yeure ago the Saxon
King Kdgar proclaimed a rest from
all labor from the noon of Saturday
till the dawn of Monday, and the sswne
principle wan emphuslzed by his suc
The church was In those days the
dominant factor In all social life, and
the Satunlay-to-Monday ordinance was
doubtless at first Intended to give the
people full opportunities for going to
church. Hound the village church, too,
gradually sprung up the Saturday mar
ket for the cottagers, and so, though
slowly, the Saturday holy day evolved
Into a holiday.
With the change from agriculture to
Industrialism, people left the villages
for the towns, and here for some time
the Saturday half-holiday was endan
gered In the rush and greed of the
new-found and little understood "prog
ress." A saner ana more moueraie
outlook, however, restored the Satur
day half-holiday. But, curiously
enough, the towns claimed It as a new
invention of their own, ignoring the
village life which, long centuries back,
knew as A legal right the weekly half-
holiday of the Saturday.
Indian Tale of 'Pillar Rock.
There are Indian tales of the Pillar
rock, which Is located about 1,000 feet
from the Washington shore, and which
stand about 1'0 feet from the surface
of the Columbia river, and of the oc
currences thereabouts, real and fanci
ful. One Is that Chief Skauiokawa,
his ire aroused because a Clatsop
brave made away with the chiefs
daughter, hurled the rock at the de
nnriln; canoe of the swain from the
tribe across the river, missing the craft
but implanting the huge pillar in mid
stream. The rock extends below the
30-foot depth, and the base, or projec
tion. Is said to have an approximate
width In excess of 30 feet.
George Vancouver, following Gray,
the discoverer of the river, spoke of
It in 1792 as "the remarkable pillar
rock." He is said to have been told
of the rock by Gray and entered the
river on the way down the coast.
"Washing One's Soiled Linen."
The phrase, "washing one's soiled
flnen," is popularly used to express
airing of unpleasant private affairs
or family quarrels in public, the anal
ogy being, of course, that both are
matters for disposition In the privacy
of one's home.
The expression comes down to us
as one of the brain children of Vol
taire, the famous French satirist. The
occasion for Its origin Is said to have
taken place In 1740, when uenerai
Mausteln wrote to Voltaire asking to
be vindicated publicly of accusations
made against him.
Voltaire happened to be occupied
In answering the appeal of Frederick
of Prussia to help him straighten out
one of his dilemmas. So he replied
to Mausteln :
"The king has sent me some of
his dirty linen to wash. I will wash
yours another time."
Late Letter Mailers Fined.
In England a century ago fines were
assessed for late mnlHng of letters.
Unless letters were mailed In London
before four o'clock a fee of a penny
for each one had to be paid to the
bellman who collected the late mall.
The postman was an important per
sonage in those days. He was all done
up In red, white and blue, scarlet coat,
blue breeches, white stockings, with a
great cockade in his hat.
Those who chose- to carry letters
to the general post office could do so,
but If the' wished to have letters re
ceived after a certain time lio less
than sixpence must be paid. It was
usual for postage, to be collected from
the person who received a letter.

A volcano In action was witnessed
about six weeks ago by the captain of
the British freighter Bounty, off the
West African coast. The skipper said
the Bounty was about five miles off
shore when he observed smoke pour
ing high and profusely out of a peak
inward from the Bight of Biafra. near
the boundary line letween Kamerun
and Nigeria. Thinking he might be
of assistance In the event of disaster
to the villages near the seacoust he
put in tovard shore and went to the
land in a lifeboat. He said the smok
ing peak was about 11,000 feet above
sea level and on Its westward side
he observed large streams of lava.
Finding no signs of human life along
the shore he went back to the freight
er and proceeded on his course.
