RIBBON UPSET A STATE. Tke Undecorated Miniater Raalgnad ana the Government Fall. Many Interesting sldo lights on a court and the unexpected trials and troubles incident to it from which re publics are free are given in William (ff A LITERARY RIDDLE. Who Was It Wrote the Tragedy of t "Troilus and Crsssida?" .Andrew Lang has Just propounded a puzzle in circumstantial evidence. "Who," he asks, "wrote 'Troilus aiid Cresslda?'

I . ..it i i i .t-au,i ui n riuoon nestoweu the Trojan war?" Bacon was too the "Iliad." by word of mouth no longer seems so Incredible when you rend of the feats of memory of which present day Zulus are capable. These people, says Mr. Gibson In "The Story of the Zulus," have no writing and are accustomed to trans mit messages and record events by memory alone. This they can do be cause their mental Impressions are made especially distinct by reason of their acquired or Inherited habit of giving undivided atteutlon to the sub ject In hand. Communications between the British authorities and the Zulu kings were almost Invariably conducted by means of verbal messages carried by natives. A certaio ultimatum addressed by the British to Cety wayo- was conveyed to him, not upon paper, but In the brain cells of the messengers whom he had sent eighty miles to receive it from the British commissioners. Although the document contained some 4.000 words and was accompa nied by much comment on the state of things It was desired to remedy, the whole was repeated to Cetywayo with perfect accuracy. for a purely ceremonial purpose seems rather absurd, but. snys Mr. Collier: "It is a historical fact that not many years ago a certain minbter of the ma rine In one of the European countries resigned because the ruler of a foreign country, ou the occasion of his visit to its capital, gave him a certain rank in a certain order and gave a higher rank to his colleague, the minister of war. The minister of marine contended that It was an insult to his country's wavy and the fact that he received the rank which the rule required in such cases and that the minister of war had re ceived a higher rank only because the lower rank had been given him pre viously made no difference to the ag grieved minister. "In his opinion his own government In not demanding that the foreign gov ernment give him also the higher rank In this foreign order had permitted Its navy to be Insulted, and so he resigned, and the government fell. Thus does the fate o natlous hang not on threads. out on ribbons." MOVING PICTURES. Why They Sometimes Show Wheels Turning the Wrong Way. Every one must have noticed that In moving pictures the wheels of car riages or automobiles often seem to be turning backward instead of forward. One puzzled person wrote to the Sci entific American asking why, and this is that paper's answer: In taking a moving picture there are perhaps sixteen exposures made each second. If now the spokes of the wheel of a carriage move with a speed so that the spokes are in the same po sition at each exposure, that wheel will seem to stand still In the picture. If the wheel is moving slower, then the spokes will be seen farther back ward in the successive views, and the wheel will seem to 'turn backward, while It will seem to turn forward when the spokes move fast enough to occupy positions further forward In each exposure. It Is a matter of the tnterrnptlon for the exposure and the motion of the wheel. If there are sixteen exposures and the wheel turns through the space between two spokes In one-sixteenth of a second the wheel would be iu the same position at each successive ex posure and so would not s:em to move at alL Gymnasium Training. Every person who has received gym nasium training Is aware of the fact that an exercise which calls for pain ful effort on the part of the beginner Is ofteu performed almost without any conscious effort at all after a certain amount of training has been received. Again, it Is perfectly well known that brute strength alone does not make a gymnast and that even a simple exer cise may offer great ditUculty to a mus cular and well developed Individual who has not been trained in the gym nasium. The explanation for this Is FISH FEATHERS. An Epicure's Dish and the Way to Trap tha Makings. The young man did not know what he wanted to eat His appetite was poor. His palate must be tempted and tickled. lie scanned the menu card again and again. Finally, with a sigh of resignation, he said to the waiter: "Bring me some fish feathers." "Fish feathers?" exclaimed the as tonished waiter. "Yes; fish feathers! And I want 'em tonlgtat. not next week!" The waiter retired for a conference with the chef, the captain and the floor manager. "No such dish here," was his report. "There ain't any such thing. There ; never was such a dish in New York." I The young man arose and sighed ' again. "That's what I've been told by every ; waiter in New York." he remarked sad ly. "But If you will drop a line to the commissioner of fisheries In Washing- ton he will correct your mistake, en- ' lighten your ignorance, project a shaft of thought Into that granite which grows above your shoulders." i He sighed a third time, stretched himself slowly and added: "The commissioner will tell you that fish feathers are a delicacy. They are taken from flying fish. You catch fly ing tish with salt water on their talis." Then he went gloomily Into the night Popular Magazine. learned a man to make such a mistake, which would be as bad as placing Abraham Lincoln among the signers of the Declaration of Independence. If you answer Shakespeare, Andrew Lang shoots, another query at you:- "Ihe author makes Ulysses and Achilles quote 'an author' and discuss a pretty long and strange passage from that author, who was Plato. How could Shakespeare have read I'lato?" For Shakespeare knew no Greek, aud in his day Plato had not yet been translated into English. It is quite concelvnble that Shake speare might imagine that Plato and Aristotle lived many centuries before Homer, but It Is Inconceivable that the erudite Bacon should fall into such an error. Andrew Lang does not pretend to solve the riddle. He frankly says, "I give it up." New York World. RISKY POSTAL SERVICE. n Russia tha Government Opens All 8uspicious Packages. Our own service of malls is well or ganized. There Is little doubt In the mind of the average person that when be posts a letter it will reach its desti nation. But in other Innds be might well fear for its safety. In Russia, for Instance, any letter or parcel that Is regarded with suspicion Is immediately opened and its contents noted. A clever ma chine gums It up again, so that the re cipient does not know that it has been tampered with. In Lapland the malls are carried In sledges drawn by reindeers. In the wilds of the Caucasus the postman holds a post of danger. He must be protected against brigands and against Animals That Are Always Enemies. Many animals are born with an In herent antipathy for other animals. The excessive fear shown by young rabbits which for the first time smell a ferret and of young turkeys which hear the shrill ,ery of a hawk they have never heard or seen before are proved examples of the strength of theso Instinctive antipathies. But the caso of the weasel and rat is. perhaps, more to be noticed because of the greater equality of the antagonists. The feud Is so bitter that a meeting le tweeu them almost certainly means death to one or both. Friendships are not uncommon between the cat and dog and have been known between a dog aud wolf, but the mutual attitude of the weasel and rat Is Invariably war- war that Is waged to the death. Great In His Line. Robert Barr once showed a por trait of Mark Twain to a silk merchant of Lyons. "Tell me who that Is," Mr. Barr said. The merchant gazed at the portrait and answered, "I should say he was a statesman." "Supposing you wrong In that, what would be your next guess?" asked Mr. Barr. "If he Is not a maker of history he is perhaps a writer of it a great hb torian, prob- ably. Of course it is Impossible for me to guess accurately except by accident but I use the adjective 'great' because I am convinced this man Is great In his line, whatever it Is. If be makes silk he makes the best" Mr. Barr told the French merchant who the portrait rep resented and said, "You have summed him up in your Inst sentence." London News. Gladstone and Grillion'a. Mr. Gladstone's election to Grilllon's club, which took place in 1840, was far from delighting him at the time. He declared It .to be "a thing quite alien to my temperament, which requires more soothing and domestic appliances after the feverish and consuming ex citements of party life, but the rules of society oblige me to submit." Lord Morley adds: "As it happened, so nar row is man's foreknowledge Grilllon's down to the very end of his life near ly sixty years ahead, had no more faithful or congenial member."

Swordsmanship Against a Tiger. Sir James Outram. known as the Bayard of India, was a "mighty hunt er" and an accomplished swordsman. He once performed the hazardous feat of killing a tiger with his sword and from the back of bis horse. General Nlcliolson performed a similar feat He rode round and round the tiger at a gallop, gradually narrowing the circle until at last he was near enough to de liver his blow. He had only the one blow and If he had failed would have made In an article by Professor Du- j been slain.

Flags at Half Mast Ever since flags were used In war It has been the custom to have the tlag of the superior or conquering na tion above that of the Inferior or van quished. When an army found Itself hopelessly beaten It hauled its flag down far enough for the flag of the victors to be placed above It on the same pole. This was a token not only of submission, but of respect In those ess because he Is watching his opportu. nlty. As the circle draws closer and closer upon him he becomes bewildered by the strange maneuver, so unlike that of any hunter he has ever encoun tered. Mexico's Smoking Mountain.
