MONKEYS ACTUALLY AT WORK Ingenious English Officer Devised Scheme by Which They Earn Their Dally Bread. Monkeys actually are innde to work In Malabar, India, which Is perhaps the only place In Ihe world where they earn their salt. The Malabar monkey Is of the fine species known as the lun snir. It Is very warm at Malabar, and there Is n fan called the punka, which used to be kept In motion by a slnve. It required n slave to work each pun ka, but now every punka In Malabar Is worked by a monkey. It was an English officer who conceived the Idea i of making the langiir work in Hint manner. The fan Ik a movable frame covered with canvas and suspended from the celling. The motion is cnused by pulling a cord. The officer tied the bauds of a langur to one of the cords, and then by means of another cord put the machine n motion. Of course, the monkey's hand went up nnd down, and the animal wondered what sort of a game was being played. Then the officer patted Its hend and fed It with candy till MOO the langur thought It line fun to work the punka. The' experiment was successful, and now thousands of monkey! are In har ness. Who Built It7 Summing tin his interpretation of the Amiens cathedral, the "Rlble of Amiens," Ituskln uska: "Who built It. shall we ask? God and man la the first true answer. The atari In their courses built It. and I lu nations. Greek Athens labors here, and the Roman Father Jove and Guardian Mnra. The Gaul labors here and the Frank ; kingly Norman, mighty Ostrogoth and wasted anchorite of I Idumea. The actual man who built It scarcely cared to tell you he did so; iior do the. historian? brag of him. Anv quantity of heraldries of knaves and faineants you may fimi In what they call their history; but this Is probably the first time ynu ever read the name of tinner! of l.ur.arches. I j aay ne scurceiy cured ; we are not sure that he enrrd at all. He signed his name nowhere, that I cun bear of. You may perhaps find some recent Ini tials cut by English remarkable visit ors desirous of linmoi talit.v, here nnd there about the edifice, but Robert the builder, or at least the master of that building, cut his on no stone of It." Give "Overt" a Chance. Many a fine adjective has been apolled by being hooked up, In some facile phrase, to a commonplace noun. For example, overt. Never In my life, writes ii. L, Mencken In the New York Bun, have I encountered overt save In front of act. Thus Joined and poisoned, It Is mouthed abominably by lawyers ami newspaper editorial writers; the literate fauna of u superior type avoid It almost altogether, And yet It Is u fine adjective, a Juicy adjective, an adjective worth knowing batter, why not overt honesty, overt destiny, overt love?

FIRE ENGINES OF ALL SORTS First Were Primitive Indeed Com pared With the Splendid Ones In Use Today. The first Are engine seen In America wns received at Ronton In KITH It was made in England, and was of the type called "hand squirts." The In strument required the labor of three men, one on each side to hold the ma chine steady and to dlreit the nozzle, while the third man worked the plung er. This contrivance was not much of an Improvement over the "siphons used In conflngrntlons." described by Hero of Alexandria In bis work on pnciimnHes. written nboiil I'fMI R.

Though lis performances were highly apnKen of. this attempt to apply steam to lire en gines cannot be said to have been successful, owing to Its great weight. A. R. I.nttii of Cincinnati built an en glne that wns a vast Improvement over Its predecessors, and It was In the Ohio city. In IRAS, that the steam lire engine first definitely supplanted the Old style of fire-fighting apparatus. Statues of Crest Men. The fashion of placing statues of popular heroes In pnrks and squares has prevailed for a long time, and Is apparently not losing any Of Hie popu lar favor, says the Ave Marin. It would not he so prevalent, however. If Rossini's plan were carried out. The great Italian composer was waited on one day by a delegation who Informed him that a statue of himself was to be erected In white marble, nnd that It would adorn the public square of his natal city. The artist Inquired how much the Maine would cost. "Twelve thousand franca," was the reply. "Well." said Rossini, "give me that urn ,n(1 on ,tll(e occasions I'll go and stand nn the pedestal myself, so tint Instead of a mere copy you'll hnve the original." Commercial Morale Low in Japan. China, for long centuries n highly developed nation, has an elaborate code of commercial ethics, .laprtn, on the other hand, which Is n nation com paratively new to civilization. Is not in scrupulous, says a writer In Sys tern. He centinues: "In Japan they say I contract Is never a settled thing, whereas in China It Is absolutely binding. The Japanese admit they have uo t null lions in trade, nnd the average Jap nuese merchant is tlrmly convinced that If he orders goods today, mid Ihe market declines beiore they arrive he does perfectly right lo refuse than, Hanks in Japan recognize tills trail in Japanese character. There Is no such thing ns lending money in a iiiuii on his personal note." Power of the Old Song. Comider Hut old souk.

A look at the llassayniupa Itself will convince the Unprejudiced stranger that some magic power must reside In the waters. Otherwise noboily would want u second drink. The other legend of Ihe llassuy ainpii ll more often retailed by aliens, though occasionally a native will admit Its prevalence nnd the existence of a cer laln amount of corroborative evidence. This legend altlrms that whosoever takes a drink of llasxny itmpn water Is thenceforwnrd utterly and constitu tionally Incapable of telling the truth on nuy Important mailer. So fit inly established did this belief become Hint at one period of Arizona history.

BEFORE DAYS OF PRINTING People Then Employed Two Forms of Writing, the Manuscript and Cursive Hand. The differences between script and print are to be referred to a dale long before the Invention of printing. We must not suppose that the ancient scribes, in writing papeis of but tern porary value, would labor to follow the siitne alphabet Hint Ihe carter em ployed upon the monument! of atone destined for all time. As far back as record! have been preoervad there was In existence a cursive Mvle of writing Instances have been preserved nbiin dantly In Pompeii of random remark! by the ordinary citizen scribbling Idle sentiments upon the walls. The alphabet of the monument! was Commonly the model for the writers of formal literature, prOfOOBlOBOl penmen who looked forward to the library preservation of the works upon which they were engaged. Iluslness men used the cursive script, which was far more readily and correspondingly more rap Idly written.

Physician. The first Berlin, newspaper wns printed in Kill) In the reign of the liieitoi of Brandenburg, The paper wns edited by Cornelius llonlekoe, u Hollander, physician to the lOlector. Robert Voelker nnd Rllai Locker, book sellers, were privileged to sell the paper. It was a weekly and appeared Sunday morning; Ihe clerks of the booksellers would sell Hie papers. In winter before, and in summer after church, which was held In the open from May to Seplemlfer.

After tin- clon ing prayer the newspaper sale com menced at the entrance gate. Rupert V'uell.i r, the llr-t bookseller of Iterlln, was allowed to give the elector a copy. After church the eiectress and children would return to the palace, while the elector wo, lid enter a piibiiiiuin ami be carried In the Luitgarden, There he would cad Ihe paper, mid then give nudb'tice to art lit! and oilier learned m-n. One Sunday a man was Introduced who entertained the elector (WhO be lieved in Hie appearance of the devil In some form or another) With a story which had happened to ll farmer at Ihe Berlin gate. "At the Berlin gale," lie said, "the farmer's horses stopped suddenly. He left his wagon lo coax lliem to go, but coating and cursing would not take them a step further. The farmer turned bis head and saw nil ugly wom an on his wagon, blaspheming God mid promising the farmer wealth. Then lbi farmer said : 'All good spirits.' The woman did not move. The farmer got angry and aald i 'Will you rldet Then ride lii .lesits' nanie.' and the woman, the devil, vanished from the wagon." The elector was greatly Interested In Hie story mid ordered the physlcliin I'dltor to have the story published In the next Issue of the paper ns a les son lo others not to be tempted by riches. Current news wns not allowed to be published. Court functions and fables would Dud more fnvor with the llerllners. A bookseller fropi Leipzig came In Berlin to publish another pa per, which was promptly forbidden by the elector, who considered one news paper mffident for Berlin. Wells Doesn't See It Through. An edifying little wrangle between Meeara Wells and Jerome has been adorning the correspondence columns of the Loudon Pally News. Mr. Jer ome w role something about u "League of Kensoii." Mr. Weils then saddled Mr. Jerome with Ihe elegant repronch of "slobbering with love mid forgive ness about (he neck of the kaiser, the Mown prince, Keventlovv mid the Krupp family." Mr. Jerome, very naturally, retorted that he hnd done nothing iif Hie sort, w hereupon Mr. Wells criticised Mr. Jerome for hold ing opinions which Mr. Jerome sub scipicully staled he did not hold. After n few more Interchanges of com pliments the editor of our conteinpo rnry has printed a further letter of Mr. Jerome's, despite a pressing In vitation of his for further remarks by Mr. Wells, with the Intimation. "This correspondence Is now closed." This embargo places Mr. Wells In the un usual position of being unable to hnve Hie last word. Mental and Physical Work.
