They Spat (Jut Fury From Tongue
Barbed With Flame.
Dragons were Important animals In
undent and medieval natural history.
Until comparatively recent time no
scientist ever thought of questioning
the existence of thin most formidable
of beasts. The nunala of Winchester
for 1177 gravely state that "In this
year dragons were seen of many In
England." Cesnor, professor of tint-
urul history ut Zurich, gave a detail
ed description of the dragon, while
Aldrovandus In his "History of Ser
pents and Dragons," published In 1040,
devoted fifty pages to the monster.
A good specimen of a dragon would
seem to have been a beast about the
size of a sheep. Incased in a coat of
scales which shone like silver. Its
back was serrated like n saw. It pos
sessed a long tail, a pair of butllke
wings, four heavily clawed feet and
a wolvine head, the' jaws of which
were armed with very formidable
teeth. The tongue was barbed with
tire, and fury issued from the mon
ster's mouth, and the head bore a
crest. Dragons were the most wicked
and vindicative of creatures. They
seem always to have been In a tow
ering rage and spent the greater por
tion of their time In rushing up and
down the earth destroying everything
that came In their path.
The origin of dragons was a disputed
point among medieval naturalists.
Some maintained that these animals
were generated by the beat of India.
Others were of opinion that the volca
noes of Ethiopia used to belch forth
the monsters. One scientist, John Leo
by name, declared the dragon to be a
hybrid, a cross between an eagle and

A Russian's First Encounter With
English In London.
A Russian tells a funny story of his
first encounter with the English lan
guage. The day after his arrival in London
he made a call on a friend In Park
lane and on leaving inscribed in his
notebook what be supposed to be the
The next day, desiring to go to the
same place again, he called a cabman
and pointed to the address that he had
written down. The cabman looked him
over, cracked his whip and drove away
This experience being repeated with
two or three other cabmen, the Rus
sian turned indignantly to the police,
with no better results. One officer
would laugh, another would tap his
head and make a motion imitating the
revolution of a wheel, and so on.
Finally the poor foreigner gave It
up and with a great deal of difficulty,
recalling the landmarks which he had
observetf.tue day before, found his way
to his friend's house. Arrived there
and in company with otie who could
understand him, he delivered himself
of a severe condemnation of the cab
men and the police of London for their
impertinence and discourtesy.
His friend asked for a look at the
mirth provoking address and the mys
tery was solved. This was the entry:
"Ring the Red."
The Russian bad with great care
copied, character for character, the
legend on the gatepost.-supposlng that

Certain qualities go to the making
of any human being whom other hu
man beings esteem. Certain Ingredi
ents are, as necessary to a man as
flour and yeast to bread or iron and
carbon to steel. You cannot make
them any other way. There Is a com
bination of steadiness of purpose,
breadth of mind, kindliness, wholesome
common sense, justice, perhaps a flash
of humor, certainly a capacity for the
task In baud that produces a worth
while person. The combination occurs
In every rank In life. You find It as
often In the kitchen as in the parlor;
ofteuer, perhaps, In the Held than In
the office. The people who are so com
posed have spiritual length, breadth,
thickness; they are pplc f three di

The Primitive Man.
"Jones is so dreadfully primitive!"
"What's his latest?"
"Why, we were at the opera hrtose
the other night, and a stage hand re
moved a table, and Jones yelled "Supe,
snpe:" We were dreadfully morti
fied." "I was at a dinner the other night,
and Jones sat next to nie. When he
saw the row of spoons and forks and
knives beside his plate he beckoned to
the waiter. 'Say. boy, he hoarsely
muttered, "I guess you spilled the
spoon holderl' "
"Well, it'g lucky he's rich."
