In order to InTcstlnoto bta father's
statement John went to the public li
brary and naked for an old arithmetic.
Tbe librarian Rare him Itlcbard'a
Natural Arithmetic, fie turned to the
paea marked "I'racllcal EjercUes"
"A. puta ula whole flock of abrcp Into

didn't study that book."
The next book be examined wsa
Mllno'a Inductive Arithmetic, edition
or 1870. In mtacellansoua example be
found tbe following:
"Two laddere will together Juat reach
tbe top of a building aorenty-flre feet
high. If tbe aborter ladder to two
Utlrde tbe length of the other, what Is
tbe leagtu of each?"
"Why didn't he measure each ladder

Tbo text written In 1SG8 waa handed
to him. Tbe book waa evidently Influ
enced by tbe civil war. for It waa Oiled
with problem dealing with battering
down fortlflcallnua and the auttcnance
of aoldlera. Oue problem waa;
"If twrlre piece of cannon (eight
een pounder! can baiter down a for

take for nineteen twenty-four-pound-era
to batter down tbe ame fortresaT"
"Tbat'a flue for a general. John re
flected, "but dad any that I am going
to be n captain of Induitry."
Another arithmetic of the nme date
had the famoua flib problem with
which John' teacher had troubled him
for ilx weeka before be himself Anally
explained It to tbo class. The flah

Very handy problem for a butcber.
John turned to the Common School
Arithmetic, edition of ISM. "Here
I'm aure to And something good." he
reflected and rend:
"A hare Marin up twelve rod lofore a
hound, but ahe I not perceived by him
till she haa been up one aud one-fourth

FAULTS OF GOLFERS.
To Cur Them the Play of Exparte
Should Be Studlsa.
Tbe common fautta of the golfer
may be named In tbe following order
of Importance: Swinging too q sickly,
taking the eye off the ball, holding the
left band under the club, keeping tbe
bands too near the body and standing
too near tbe ball.
The easiest, says Outing Indeed, tbe
only satisfactory way of curing all
these faults la to go out and watch
aome drat class experts play. If you
cannot And any expert of tbe Aral
clas go for the best available.
Thl. of course, t rudimentary ad
vice and certainly not original. Tbe
yeaagest caddie at St Andrew baa
learned to request hi master to keep
hi eye on tbe ball and not to pre.
The troublo 1 that no amount of book
teaching will make you follow tbla ad
vice. There hi only one way to hit a golf
ball. Yon must watch a good player
and Imitate what ho doe. Moat be
ginner make tbe aerloua mistake of
taking leaaon from profewdonale who
watch their pupil play and try to cor
rect them. Tbe pupil would get twice
aa much good out of tha lemon if he
would watch the profeaatonal play aud
think as little aa possible about him
self. The human being U naturally Imita
tive. If you alt and watch a good ten
nis match between first class players
you will unconsciously ("Blab- your
atroke better tbe next time you take
up a racket. With golf tbla b- par
ticularly true, because nothing Is so Im
portant aa tbe rhythmical timing of
tbe atroke which dUUnguUhee a good
player from bad.

A fashionable painter, noted for bis
proline output, was discussing at a
studio tea In New York a recent scan
dal In tbe picture trade.
"Look here, old man, said a noted
etcher, "do you paint alt your owu
