Gidton can hardly have hoet, when

of a family is likely to l careful in audi
matters, when ne oliHerve how careless
ho is in taking the record of bis own
weight. He w ill take hw weight on one
of ihie rather questionable nickel ma
chines, and remark with a suiisGcd miIo
that ho has increawHl four or five pound
in weight; without noticing that, per
hart, his List weighing was taken just
before a meal on a warm day, when he
was lightly dad, whereas tho new weigh
ing has been taken soon after a rather
full meal, and when he is warmly
drefscd. It does not occur to him to
notice that a couple of glaiiseu of water
add more than a jiound to the weight,
and a full meal three or four pounds;
while a suit such as a man wears on a
cold day will often weigh four or five
pounds more (without counting? oVer

I want to speak right here of a couple
of fallacies of the popular mind in regard
to the detective business. First, tho old
iik'a of setting a thief to catch a thief is
all non.-tfnHfl. Why, you could not tru-t
your man; would have to have another
to watch him. No; you must have
thoroughly honest and reliable men. Of
course we sometimes get information
from one thief about another, but never
do we employ a man who has ever been
a crook. The second popular fallacy is
that the detective ia a regular variety
and lightning change man, who at will
undergoes transformation of appearance
and language, something like the Dr.
Jc-kyll and Mr. Hyde business; people
fancy that a collection cf wigs, whiskers,
mustache, and a make up apparatus, to
gether with a wardrobe that would put a
variety actor to shame, is a regular and
necessary part of the outfit of a detective
bureau. That is all burcomb. You get
that in dime novels and French detective
stories. Y ears ago, m foreign countries,
that kind of thing was, perhaps, resorted
to, but never nowadavs. The most a
man does here, perhaps, is to change his
clothes. Cleveland Leader.
The Triumph of Gunpowder,
Bv 1450 the simplest complete armor
for horse and man cost alxmt $2,000 of
our money, a large sum for a single sol
dier. One shot might ruin all this, and
knights, brave with their lives, hesitated
to risk a property so valuable and so
lard to replace. Thus the nobles retired
to the rear of the. battle, and in the pay
of the Fifteenth century princes half
armed light cavalry appeared, doing real
service, but retjuii ing time to obtain any
prestige. The knights did not learn
their lesson, but went on making armor
heavier, to resist the effects of powder.
They had a momentary success at ror

The arrest of two editors for printing
an extract from another paper question
ing the validity of the anti-lottery law
is certainly carrying things pretty high

The Foil has no objection to the
stamping out of the lottery companies,
but the line should be drawn, it thinks,
at that point where irresponsible under
lings of the government attempt to
stamp out the press.
On this line the Atlanta Vonmiuiion
says that " this policy will not work. If
lotteries cannot be destroyed without
also destroying the freedom of the press,
the people will be in favor of letting the
lotteries alone, we cannot artord to
yield our right to speak and publish fair
criticisms of public measures. If we
yield the right in one instance, we may
expect to be forced to keep silence when
ever it suits the government to demand
it. Fortunately it is no easy matter to
bulldoze the newspapers of America.
The menace of fine and imprisonment
will intimidate very tew. no matter
what Federal officials may hold, the
newspaper men of the country will not
change their conviction that an honest
criticism or discussion of the provisions
contained in the anti-lottery law cannot
with any show of justice be held to be a
violation of that law. If they are mis
taken in this belief, then the law will
have to be repealed or modified. In this
Republic the government cannot array
itself a;ainst the press and have the
support of the people."
It is the policy and practice in some
of the monarchies to inhibit criticism
by the press of the acts of government,
but until the enforcement, or the alleged
enforcement, of the anti-lottery law no
one dreamed that such a thing would be
attempted in the United States. Houf
