Paasants Mak Merry on Sunday to Oil
Their Joints For Monday.
Tbo Itomnatilnn peasants have a say
ing that they must dance on Sunday to
keep tbo creak out ot their bones on
Monday. Most of the dances aro at
tho public houses dance halls under
tho blue sky, as It were and young
and old gather there. The old folk
spend the day with the tipple, whllo
the young ones dance. Thcro Is very
little drinking on auy other day of tho
week, and a tipsy man except on Sun
day is Bcldom seen.
Tho dances nro organized by tbe boys
of tho community. They arrange for
the music, provide tho refreshments
and preside as masters of ceremony.
When the girls reach a marriageable
age and have been sulllclently Instruct
ed In tho household arts they are al
lowed to attend thcie dances as partic
ipants. "She dances at the dnnco" Is
the peasant way of saying that n girl
has mado her debut mid U eligible fur
matrimonial attentions.

The Doctor's Prescription.
Of hlstqrlcnl Interest Is tho emblem
found on every prescription written by
a physician, tonslstlng of the letter 11
with a thin lino across the tall nt an
ncutc angle. According to historians, It
had Its origin In the undent custom of
allowing tbo stars to dominate every
day Incidents of life. The It thus mark
ed Is said to have been the emblem used
by tho ancients to deslgunto tho su
premacy of Jupiter. Therefore It seems
probablo that soino chemist of undent
days gave a prescription or a recipe to
Homo patient and wrolo upon It tho em
blem of the planet then In the ascend
ancy, which happened to be Jupiter.
This emblem has couio down to the
present time mid Is nhvn.vs used. In a
more modern sense It stands for a
recipe, or nu order or Instruction to
tuko BOL'ietlilng. Literally construed,
recipe mcuns "tako" or "tuko thou."
How to Learn to Write.
Putting words together. Is not writ
lug; making lino sentences Is not writ
lug; elaborating striking plots Is not
writing. Of till the nrts literature Is
tho most exacting mistress. To wrlto
you must hnvo lived, you must huvo
suffered and know Joy, you must bo
able to aualyzo people, to understand
their motives, to Iovq them.
Granted that you havo learned some
thing of tho motives, tho passions, dm
sorrows that rack us humans, then yuti
must nlso have your medium In con
trol. Words nru like llttlo creatures
that march and tight and sing. They
are Uko extra bands and brains. All
the passions watt on them. Until you
get this ncnsa of the cholconebs, tho
fragility, tho power of words, you nro

In the early days of baseball white
