Sometimes the newspapers ax
nounce In startling headlines that a
lone highwayman has "held up" a
train and gotten away with a fabu
Ions Amount of money. This fires the
Imagination of the criminally inclined
and leads them to think that "easy
money" may be had without work. Out
the fact Is that very few criminals
ever profit much by their Ill-gotten
gains. William A. Tlnkerton, the vet
eran detective, declared. In a recent
address, that no crime pays, that 95
per cent ot criminals die In debt and
frequently in want. And speaking of
"holdup" robbers especially, ha says
few are alive and out of prison to-day.
The very limited number that ara In
comfortable circumstances are those
who have abandoned criminal lines
and taken to honest work. It some
times happens that a man who has led
a criminal life for a while reforms And
after squaring himself with the law
builds up a competence In some legiti
mate pursuit. This is partly due to
the fact that a successful robber or
burglar must be a man of more than
ordinary nerve, ability and quickness.

smartness and labor that he puts Into

Physiologists are familiar with the fact
that six fingers ara sometimes actually found
on one hand and that the peculiarity seems
to be hereditary In certain families, but such
Instances are malformations and hava not
Justified the theory that they are Indications
of a superiority of any kind We have even
an Instance In the Iltble, where a rase Is
mentioned of a giant among the (lentils pop.
ulatton ot Palestine who was possessed of six Angers
It is reported that he was slain In battle.
Among tha notions of the middle sges whlrh are now
almost forgotten was a belief that the faculty ot pro
phetic dreams was a sixth sense, which was outwardly
Indicated by the possession ot six fingers or six toes.
No on except a searching critic may have discovered
that Pope Slxtua IV, who Is represented on Raphael's
Hlsttne Madonna, Is possessed ot six fingers Itaphael
was too great a painter not to be able to render this
feature so Inconspicuous as to make It difficult for a
casual observer to discover the sixth finger on the
Pope's hand, and yet It Is plainly visible !o everyone
who takes the trouble to look for It.
Ths same is true of 8t Joseph, whok according to the
reports ot the New Testament, rrcshrs his Instructions
In dreams He accordingly Is a typical eismple of a
person who In all his walks of life Is guided by divine
commands tendered to him through dreams He there

There hava been various explana

Edwin B. Frost, of the Yerkes Obssrv

cause for part of the variations may
be found In tha movement of the Ice,

The United Statu official regtster or
"blue book," which has been published
biennially since 1817, was of over 4
000 psges In two large volumes In
1905, tha Washington Post aays. Be
fore 1817 the germ of the publication
had been appearing for over twenty
years In the shape of simple lists of
government clerks transmitted to con
gress by the secretaries, but In that
year provision was made for Issuing
regularly a complete register. There
was a time when the blue book was a
convenient size for the pocket, though
containing a full roster.
During Washington's administration
the secretaries of state, treasury and
war, Thomas Jefferson, Alexander
Hamilton and Henry Knox, trans
mitted the name of their clerks to
congress, and In 1TS3 Secretary Ham
ilton forwarded to congress a general
lUt of clerks, agents and employes on
the government rolls. This latter, be
ing printed, was tha first blue book or
register. Tha government was then In
Philadelphia, and In the three depart
ments there were less than 160 names,
two-thirds being In the treasury.
