' Origin of Stall.
Tho origin of seals Is lost Id the
shades of iinllipilly. In Assyrian and
Iliibyloiilnn ruins seals still are found,
and It Is certain that their use passed
from llioso countries to Oreeco and
Koine, to all Kurnpcnu countries and
from Kughind to America. Originally
they were set In rings. The earliest
references to them In Illbllcnl history
Is found In (ienesls xxxvlll. where It
Is recorded that, pending certain nego
tiations between J ml ah and Taniur,
tho widow of his son, Tniinir demand
ed a pledKO mid Judiili gavo her his
signet 11 1 id other belongings. And

his wife Jezebel "wrote letters in
A hub's iinmo and scaled them with his

In tho king's name and seal II with the
king's ring, for the writing which Is
written In the king's name nnd sealed

them. l'rom the time of Jeremiah to
William tho C'oiiipicror tho pen was
practically unknown to king, noblo or

' The Lur of Money.
James II. Kecne, who won and lost
fortunes and who pluyed with millions
of dollars as a child would play with
a heap of sand, was once asked why,
having wealth to satiety, he did not
give up the game of money grabbing
and seek peace, comfort and coDtent
mcnt. Tho answer vouchsafed by Kceno
may bo regarded as that which would
be offered by many another man If the
same question wcro put to him.
"Why do I waut more money?" said
Kceno. "Why docs a dog want an
other rabbit? Your dog will chnso the
millionth rabbit as though It wcro the
first be bad ever seen, tie will strive
and strain In the pursuit of It to the
point of heartbreak. One might sup
pose bis soul's Ufa depended on the
capture. And yet. should bo overtake
It, ho will cast It aside when killed
and begin quartering the ground to
start another. To tho last gasp of his
breath that dog will chase his rabbit
When you tell life why that dog wants
another rabbit I'll tell you why I
want more money." Ilnrry FurnUs in
How Animals Learn.
Dr. T. Zcll. a German naturalist has
collected many lustanccs to provo that
animals learn by experience nnd thus
become wiser than their uulnstructed
parents. Game animals of all kinds,
ho avers, havo learned the range of
modern rlllcs. Greyhounds quickly
learn to let rabbits alone, and fox
hounds pay no attention to cither rab-
bltB or hares. Killer whnles nnd gulls
follow whnllug vessels. Just as vul
tures follow an army. Crows begin to
accompany tlm chamois hunter as
soon as they hnve soon tho result of
his first successful shot, nnd rough
lecged buzzards follow the sportsman
after winged gnme. The number of
birds that kill or Injure themselves
by flying against telegraph wires Is
much smaller than It used to be. Dr.
Zell nlso refers to the fact that
birds and quadruieds have learned to
disregard passing railway trains, as
horses quickly cense to be frightened
by automobiles. Ills Instances of tho
Intelligent election exercised by sheep
dogs arc familiar to nil.

THe Order of the Bath.

having been undressed by -his esquires,
was thereupon placed In the bath, bis

England's Patron Saint,
The story of England's patron snlnt
Is surrounded by n mixture -of truth
nnd fable which defies definite sifting.
He Is generally believed to have been
born nt Lydln. but brought tip In Cap
pndocla, and suffered martyrdom In
the reign of niocletinn. A. II. 303. The
legend of his con II let with the dragon
may have arisen from a symbolical or
allegorical representation of his con
test with the pagan persecutors. When
our crusaders went to the east In I0SKI
they found St; George elevated to the
rank of warrior saint, with tho title
of the "victorious," and as they be
lieved that they were Indebted to him
for aid In the siege of Antloch they
adopted htm ns the patron of soldiers.
Edward III. was thus led to make him
prttron of the Order of the Garter, and
so gradually Si. George became the tu
telary saint of England. London Mall.
. The Physician.
Dr. Cat hell 11 of Paris declares that
no person who does not possess cer
tain "six moral senses"- should attempt
to enter the medical profession viz,
tbe sense of duty, tbe sense of respon
sibility, the sense of kindness, the
sense of manual skill (which he sub
divides Into the sense of boldness and
tbe sense of prudence), the sense of
beauty and the social role. "The sense
of duty toward the patient," so be Is
quoted by the Boston Globe, "Is the
very first requisite In a physician. It
can only arise from a positive and In
nate altruism or love of one's fellow
creatures a quality similar to that
which moves tbe hospital nurse to the
core of tbe stricken. There can be no
personal sensitiveness nor lack of In
terest In details, as against an absorb
ing curiosity that compllcoted cases
arouse, and yet with all this sense of
duty, which calls for extreme good
ness and sensitiveness of heart, he
must not show a trace of emotion
when his duty calls him to operate on

A Truthful Description.
In an illustrated description of the
game of tennis SImpUclsslmus says:
"Like all good tilings, lawn tennis is
of English origin. Marie Stnart while
a prisoner was compelled to beat car
pets which were hung over a rail.
Not contented with this humiliation,
her sister. Queen Elizabeth, once
threw a dead mouse at the unfortu
nate Marie while the latter was beat
ing carpets. The little defunct rodent
was caught on Marie's flail and sent
back over the rail and was returned
to her by means of a flail In the hands
of Elizabeth, and thus the game of
tennis originated." Further on In the
same description It Is said. "Two sets
are formed, and while these flirt nt
the edge of the court others stand
near the net and make efforts to speak
Spencer's "First Principles."
In Spencer's "First Principles" he
endeavors to define the fields of tbe
unknowable mid the knowahle and
the postulates with which the studies
of the knownble must be pursued.
When Spencer writes thnt "the mull
of science truly knows that in its ulti
mate essem-e nothing can lie known."
he Is not referring to man's bruin yes
terday or today. He means that the
fundamental principles of the universe,
like space, time, matter, force and mo
tion, are by their very nature un
knowable. Since nil man's knowledge
of the cosmos can be traced buck ulti
mately to sense experience, nnd since
sense experience Is not always relia
ble and much of what he calls the
ultimate essence is entirely Inaccessi
ble to sense experience. It may be phil
osophically said that man. cannot be
sure he really knows anything. Both

theory nie due to the equivocal Import
