ever really means to us— just
one little day.

Japan occupies a prominent place
jj among the countries of the world In

These are
found exclusively in granite regionB.
The hot spring o f Misnsa, in the prov­

Salt and the Ramans.
Spilling of salt Is a superstition still
current among us it is derived from
the undent Romans, who used salt in
their sacrifices and regarded it us sa-
j cred to the penntes. To spill It careless­
ly was to Incur the displeasure o f these
household divinities. A fter accldental-
; ly spilling salt the ancient Homan was
wont to throw some over tho left shoul­

hoping to call away from his neighbor

A m li n Poisons th e Eye.
When sharpening a colored pencil be
careful not to get any o f the dust into
the eye. Many such pencils are dyed
! with aniline, and several cases o f se
vere injury to the eye have been re­
ported. In the Archives o f Ophthal­
mology Dr. II. J. McCurdy tells o f a
young woman who not only had the
white o f her eyes stained blue, but
j who had to have an operation per­
formed to separate the lower lid from
the eyeball, these having grown fogeth-
l er in the healing o f the sore produced
j by the aniline.

L o n d o n ’s Squares.
The square as a residential quarter
is essentially British, being analogous
neither to the French place nor the
Italian piazzo nor to the German platz.
Nowhere on the continent do we find
any assemblage o f private houses the
inhabitants o f which have a proscrip­
tive right to the ground on which their
residences abut. Tho London squares,
according to their historian. E. B.
Chancellor, “ number about 200, and
their characteristics are curiously di­

are triangles, some with only three and
many with unequal sides and a few
