France during the Mixieeulh and ev

It iieiessnry to liquidate hla affairs

Those who made a hobby of getting
rid of their Indebtedness by wsy of
the bankruptcy court should at all
costs steer clear of China. Bank
ruptcies are almost unknown In that
country, as they entail Immediate ex

To come nearer home, on need only
go bark to a little before the Act of
Union to find that debtors In Scot

of diverse colors, a suit of gray and

In Slam, a man unable to meet his
liabilities was pot In chains and, com
pelled to work as a slave for bis cred

seized In his stead.

Tailoring Ancient Art
The art of tailoring. In the western
hemisphere. iipears to have originat
ed In connection with skin garment
rather than those of cloth. In the
North, throughout the reindeer and
caribou area, well-tailored skin gar
ments were worn, completely cover
ing the body. The Eskimo and the
caribou-hunting Indians cut out pieces
of skin and fitted them together In
Intricate patterns like a modern tailor.
The tailoring art probably began In
China, whence It spread to Europe,
thence to the reindeer hunters In Si
beria and across from Asia Into the
new world. - Along the Pacific coast
the aboriginal Indians were but scant
ily cliul and the natives of Patagonia
usually wore only a breechcloth, al
though sometimes a capelike robe
hanging from the shoulders was used.
In Mexico and the Andes region where
the art of weaving reached Its height,
garments retained the angular form
lr. which they came from the loom.

During the years of my uncle's re
tirement I was much more In his coin

waa a schoolboy and he' was foreign
secretary or prime minister. Pem
broke lodge became to me a second
home; and I have no happier memory
than of hours spent (here by the side
of one who had played hat. trap and.

corresponded with ,Tom Moore, de
bated with Francis Jeffrey, and dined
with Doctor Parr; hud- Malted Mel

Mrs. SUldnns; Jiad conversed with Na

had ridden with the duke of Welling

Eastern Monarch! and Religloua Lead
ers Long Ago Lifted Thtii- Voices
Against Drunkenness.
Temperance movements and prohibi
tion jcnisades date buck at least 3.000
years. It was China that first tried
to be hooc-dry. Eiirly reform along
temperance line are attributed to the
priests of India and PeVsln. But the
(tiinee claim that In the eleventh cen
tury before Christ their emperor, so
dlsg-.isted over the prevalence of drunk
cnne. ordered all the grapevine In
the kingdom uprooted.
A hundred years before this hone
vlry effort. In the twelfth century be
fore Christ. King Wen tried partial re
form In China. Wen. founder of the
Chon dynasty, promulgated nn "An
nomv -nent Agnlnst Drunkenness." ac
cordln, ancient Ch'nee document
handed. Jown by Confuclu. '
King Wen declared "drinking has
long been a national vice." , He or
dered that w:ne 1e used' only In con
nection with sacrifice and even then
drunkenness wn not to be tolerated.
The temierunce reforms nlso ex
isted In Egypt centuries before Chrlt.
Here" what a teacher suld to a youth
who hnd been looking upon the fiowlns
bowl too freely :
"Drink not beer to excess. The
ivords that come out of thy mnut'i
thou canst not reonll. Thou dost fall
and break thy limb anil no one
reaches ont a hand to. thee. ' Thy
comrades go on drinking; they stand
up and say: Away with this fellow
who Is drunk." If unyone should then
seek 'thee to ask counsel of thee, thou
wouldst. be found lying In the dust
like a little child."
Life' Master-Key.
Life's master-key is a personal pos
session. It's your to use. It's your
estimate of yourself plus sufficient
Initiative to bring Ideals to pas.
Vou're bound to be questioned and
discounted at every turn. Others, have
the same mental corieept of their
worth as you do. It's your Job to
show them who Is most fit. No, you
needn't begin that old quarrel about
the survival of the fittest. Life knows
mercy as literature more than k does
of conduct. Nature's laws are Just.
Impartial and Irrevocable. They know
neither sex nor social position. He
who by Instinct works with them .wins,
he who does the opposite falls. When
opportunity steps Into view you must
grasp the forelock or Join the great
army of those who spend the time In
regrets and those who sigh, "If I had
only known."
Power of Imagination.
A doctor, treating nn old woman
for typhoid fever, took her tempera
ture on each visit by putting a
thermometer under her tongue. One
day. when she was, nearly well, the
doctor did " not take her temperature.
He had scarcely got 100 yards
from the house when her son called
him back, i "Mother is worse," said
the young man. "Come back at once !"
The doctor returned. As he went Into
the sick room the old woman . looked
np at him reproachfully. "Doctor," she
said, "why didn't you give me that
tube under my tongue. today 7 That al
ways did me more gooi than all the
