BREAD WITHOUT FLOUR.
Parisian Process by Which Whole
' Wheat Grain Is Used. ,
Parisian bread is niado without flour
in a machine that transforms - the
wheat Into dough. The machine con
sists mainly of a large screw turning
loosely in a case on whose inner sur
face is a screw thread running in an
Between the main threads on the
cylinder are smaller threads, and the
depth of the groove grows progressive
ly smaller from one end to the other,
so that it will hold the entire wheat
grain as it enters the machine and
will accommodate only the pulverized
wheat at the exit
The wheat is prepared by a thor
ough washing, after which about a
pint of tepid water to a pound of grain
is added, and the whole is allowed to
stand about six hours. At the end of
this time the grains of wheat have
swollen to double their ordinary size.
It is then mixed with the yeast and
salt and poured into the machine. It
falls between the threads of the mov
ing screw and of the fixed contrary
screw, which simultaneously crush the
envelope and body of the grain, mak
ing of them a homogeneous mixture
which forms a smooth paste.
Bread obtained by this process con
tains a succession of holes whose size
Increases as they approach the crust,
which is thin. The odor given off is
most agreeable and far more pronounc
ed than that of ordinary baker's bread.
BIZET AND HALEVY.
The Story of tho Origin of a Popular
Air In "Carmen."
Bizet, the composer of the world fa
mous opera "Carmen," and Halevy,
his librettist, once occupied apartments
whose outer doors opened on the same
landing. As soon as he had finished
an air Bizet would hasten to submit it
to his neighbor, who subjected it to
the most severe criticism. From morn
ing to, night the piano resounded in
the composer's apartments. One night
Bizet finished a dramatic bit in which
he flattered himself he had success
fully sketched the pride of a trium
phant toreador after a successful bull
fight. But Halevy listened in silence
and showed but a moderate enthu
siasm.' Bizet, somewhat piqued, asked
the cause of this coldness.
"It's good, I admit," said Ilalevy.
"In fact, it's too good. It lacks move
ment; it lacks snap in short it's not
"Not popular enough!" shouted the
piqued composer. "Do you want to
write for the slums?" He went out in
a huff, but soon relented and in an
hopr returned with another air. "Lis
ten to this," said he, "Here is my
toreador idea written down to your
popular level." It was indeed the
song of (he toreador and the only one
which on tho first night received an
encore and seemed to move the first
night audience from its torpor.
I Ax Head Money.
When Schllemanu was digging at the
supposed site of Troy he discovered
masses of silver in the form of ax
heads. Gotze suggested that these
were intended not for implements, but
for money. Bronze ax heads have also
been discovered In ancient remains,
mingled with metal pieces in the form
of rings, in such a manner as to sug
gest that all alike were Intended to
serve as money, and the conclusion is
drawn that in ancient times the metal
ax head had come to be a popular
unit of value for purposes of barter.
After it had disappeared as actual
money tho memory of it, according to
this theory, was preserved in tho coins
of Tenedos, which bore the figure of
an ax head. It has been suggested
that the "wedge of gold" which Achan
stole from tho spoils of Jericho and
for the stealing of which Joshua had
him stoned to death was a specimen
of tho ancient ax head money. Har

A GHOST AT SEA.
The Phantom That Boarded the Bark
The following incident is recorded
as a true short story by an English
The Sea Flower, a bark of some 450
tons, was iu the early hours of the
23d of June, 1SGJ, bound for Bristol,
England, under tlie command of tho
first mate, her captain, John Ellis,
having been left behind at Kingston,
Jamaica, Buffering from "yellow jack."
It was about four bells in the middle
watch (or 'i. a. m.) when the mate, who
was standing near the bluuacle giving
the beluismuu his course, suddenly be
came aware of a mysterious presence
in the waist of tho ship. At tbe same
moment his companion clutched nlm
by the arm. and, pointing, shrieked.
"D'ye see him, sir?"
Before he could reply tha mate be
came aware that the dark shadow he
had Just before observed had so far
materialized that it bore the appear
auce of Captalu Ellis. The figure of
tho captain advanced along the deck
and disappeared slowly down the com
panion. Recovering himself, tho mate left the
helmsman and hurried down into the
cabin, meeting, Just coming out of it,
the Second mate, who told him he had
been awakened with a start after
dreaming that the captain had como
aboard and was calling him. Both
meu then made a complete search of
tho saloon and tho other cabins, but. It
Is needless to say, without result.
Later it was found that Captain El
lis had died between 1 and 2 a. m. in
tho morning of June 23.
The story got about, and the ship ob
tained n reputation for being haunted;
consequently a difficulty was found In
obtaining crews, and In the end it was
renamed and sold to a foreign firm. 1
The Fly on the Ceiling.
It Is ofteu a matter of wonder how
flies get ou to the celling, because to
do so Ihey have to turn a semlsomer
sault in the air, said Mr. Henry Hill
In the course of ft lecture delivered nt
the London Institution. A fly. said
Mr. Hill, has u backward and. forward
movement of tbe wlugs aud can part
ly turn --them round, in addltlou to
the up and down motion of a bird's
wings. That ennblwi t to turn in al
most an? direction. At the end of
each one of n fly's feet thw Is a
white pad with about 1,200 hairs
It Down these hairs are seut small
drops of gum, so that tha fly Is really
glued to the celling.
