j Great Minda At Sea.
i Many of the greatest minds of the

j how few great thoughts have been con
j eeived at sea, says the Ocean. Men of
i the highest genius seem to be trans
formed as soon as they get. at a dis
tance from land in a rolling vessel
There is an inability to control the
mind while at sea, a dilliculty in con
centrating the attention on the task ot
even writing iu one's diary, or reading
even the most trifling liction. From
this experience the best disciplined
minds are not free. When at home on
laud they can, without friction or dis
turbance, carry on mental operations
even w hile manyre talking or playing
about them; thuir faculties are so well
poised that they obey the word of com
mand, but at sea they can do nothing
with the intellect. Were it not for tho
impossibility of controlling the intel
lectual forces a ship on a long voyage
would be the best conceivable retreat
for those who wish to think, or write,

Edward E. Gatef, of Indianapolis, a
mem tier of Yale College, at New Haven
on March 9 undeetook to cover 16 miles
on foot inside of 3 hours. Three stu
dents had previously covered the dis
tance in 3 hours 40 minutes. Gates had
to run over a rough, muddy and frozen
up hill and down dale course to West
ville, through the Glen over the Wood
bridge Hills and into town, down the
long hill of Woodbridge back to West
ville and New Haven. Gates made the
distance, however, accompanied by two
carriages, in 2 hours 51 minutes, and
was pretty badly used up. Next day he
was con lined to his room, stiff and lame,
Stains From Colored Hosiery.
More than half the fashionable wo
men of New York have dyed feet, and
if there J anything In chemistry lo re
move the silk stocking stain I haven't
heard aliout It, says a New York cor
respondent of the'Ciuelnnati Cn'uirer.
Un the slab in the vapor baths it is not
unusual for the attendant to spend
about an hour w 1th a siphon of hot
water, a flesh-brush and a cake of soap,
actually scouring a woman's feet,
from which the skin would be easier of
removal than the blotches of green,
black, blue, brown and red that stick
like the colors of an' Easter egg. in
the cooling-room it frequently happens
that these mottled phalanges' form the
medium of conversation which brings
together congenial souls, w hate ver bene
fit their mutual sides realize. What do
you use on your feet? is the leader as
a rule, and just as certain as there is
in answer it is everything: These
dyed-in-the-wool dames and damsels
will sit in their sheet giving and get
ting w hatever information they can as
to the lest jwssible means of removing
the dye without the derm. As a rule
these Indies are rather proud of their
Stains, which are regarded in some
what the same manner that men ex
hibit their sears. A woman with a well
dyed foot, something with patches of
Paris green, both blue and nasturtium
tints, can always be et down as a
genuine silk stocking. In all proba
bility she hasn't a pair of lisle threads
or balbriggans to her name. The foot
with black edges lielougs to a rich
widow or au heiress, mourning in
ebony hosiery, and to the heel and
ankle blushing with crimson, magenta
and scarlet may be attributed the "deli
cate finery of a sybarite. Scrubbing is
of little avail. The feet have to be
soaked, and even then the dye seems
lixed, albeit they swell until it Is al
most impossible for them to get a
regular boot on. I heard one lady of
luxury, whose pedals were painted like
artificial snakes, say that she didn't try
to scrub her feet clean. Her plan was
to dry them over a register until the
skin ln'i ame parched and then brush
aw ay the epidermis, and the dye went
with it. It is useless to remonstrate
with the hosiery dealers, for unless a
woman pays $j a pair for oitera lengths,
or is w illing to wear silk tights for the
sake of having natural-hxikiiig feet, it
is imimssible lo gel stockings that will

Dul you ever think, says the St,
Louis Jtrpublic, how many male and
female ancestors were required to bring
you into the world? First, it was nec
essary that you should have a father
and mother that makes two human
beings. Again, each of them must
have had a father and mother making
eight more human beings. So on we
go back to the time of Jesus Christ
fifty-six generations. The calculation
thus resulting shows that 132,23.5.017,
489,534.976 births must have taken
place in order to bring you into this
world you, who read these lines. All
this since the birth of Christ not since
the beginning of time. According to
Proctor, if from a single pair, for 5.000
years, each husband and wife hail
married at 21 years of age and there
had been no deaths, the ipulation of
the earth would be 2,199,915 followed
by 144 ciphers. It -would require to
hold this population a number of
worlds the size of this, equal to 8,166,
626 followed by 12.5 ciphers. The hu
man mind shrinks in contemplating
such immense numliers.
Sitting on the Feet.
An active woman will destroy more
upper leather in the house in a given
time than she will on the street; there
are many more obstacles to the square
yard to te encountered in the house
than on the street; more stair-climbing,
more rubbing of the feet on the chair

The wear of tippers of women's
shoes by the friction of the skirts is
greater than many people suppose.
Men's trousers do very . little damage
compared to the heavy "and constant,
rubbiug of the skirts against the back
of the shoes.
There are no shoes made for women
that will compete with men's calf shoes
in durability under hard knocks. Un
fortunately women do not and will not
wear calfskin shoes; they ate at a dis
advantage in this respect.
