Livy In bis famous book, "The Au
Mlatf 9, 30, relates In the following
uggwttve words the story of a singu
lar strike which occurred In Uouie In
tt year 800 B. C. an4 wu probably
Cat first strike ever known:
Ttoat year occurred an event Httlo
worthy of being related and which I

players, dissatisfied because the latest
censors bad forbidden them to take
part la the banquet In Jupiter's temple,
according to the ancient custom, with
drew, every one of them, to Tibur, so
that nobody was left at Rome to play
during the sacrifices. Tlita Incident
shocked the religious sentiment of the
senate, and the senators sent messen
gers (o Invite the inhabitants of Tlbur
to make every effort In, order tbat the
players should be restored to the Ro
mans. The Tiburtlues, having prom
ised Hot to neglect uuything necessary
for tbat purpose, caused the flute play
ers to come to the place where the sen
ate saet and exhorted them to go back
to Borne. Seeing that they could not
prevail npon them to do so, tbey em
ployed a stratagem In keeping with
On a day of festival under pretext
tbat music would Increase the Joy of
tie (east every citizen Invited the flute
players Individually , to bis bouse, and
wine, of which people of that profes
sion are usually fond' was given to
them In such quantities that they fell
Into a deep sleep.' They were then
thrown Into wagons and' transported to
Rome. They only became aware of
what bad happened on the .day after,
when dawn surprised them lying on Ow
carta, which had been left In the forum.
A large crowd bad assembled, and tbey
were Induced to promise that they
would remain at Rome. The right of at
tending the banquets was restored to
these flute players.
mob Llffhta For- Mariner. Cocral
With the Earlle.t Commerce.
Beacon lights to guide the wave
tossed mariner to a safe harbor must
have been almost coeval with, the earli
est commerce. There Is positive record
that lighthouses were built In ancient
times, though few evidences now re
main to us from old writers or In crum
bled ruins. This Is not strange, for light
towers, never the most stable' architec
tural form, were exposed to the storms
of sea and war. . , -
The Greeks attributed the first light
bouses to Hercules, and be was consid
ered the protector of voyagers. It Is
claimed by some that Homer refers to
lighthouses In the nineteenth book of
Virgil mentions a light on a temple
to Apollo which,' visible far out at sea,
warned and guided mariners. The Co
lossus at Bhodes, erected about' 300
B. C, Is said' to have shown a signal
light from Its uplifted band.
The oldest towers known were built
by the Libyans In lower Egypt. They
were temples also, and the lightkeeper
priests taught pilotage, hydrography
and' navigation. The famous tower on
the Isle of Pharos at Alexandria, built
about 285 B. C Is the first lighthouse
of undoubted .record. This tower, con
structed by' Sostratus, the architect,
was square 16 plfln,. of -great height and
built In offsets; An open brazier at the
top of the tower contained the fuel for
the light. At Dover and Boulogne, on
either side of the English channel, were
ancient lighthouses built by tbe Ro
mans. But the lighthouse at Coruna,
Spain, built In the reign of Trajan and
reconstructed In 1G34, Is believed to be
the oldest existing jlghthouse.
Tho Hinmliif Bird Flower.
Alletedo avaslsls, the wonderful so
called "bumming bird flower" of tbe
plains of eastern Turkey .-.stands unique
and alone among the many specimens
of floral mimicry that have been classi
fied by modern botanists. It Is a beau
tiful blossom of. variegated hues, tbe to
tal length of, the entire flower being
bout one and three-quarter Inches. As
one might Imagine from Its name, It Is
an exact Image of a miniature hum
ming bird. The breast Is green, the
wings deep rose color, the throat yel
low and the head and. beak almost pure
black. Tbe only particular In which It
Is not a perfect bird Is tbat the stem
gives It tbe appearance of having but a
single leg and.foot

It Baa Much to Do With "Wtaalaaj
Success la LIfo,
The mental attitude which we al
ways hold toward our work or. our aim
has everything to do with what we
may accomplish. If you go to your
work with the attitude of a slave who
goes lashed to his tusk and see in It
only drudgery; If you work without
hope, seeing no future In what you are
doing beyond getting a bare living; If
you see no light ahead, nothing, but
poverty, deprivation and hard work
all your life; if you think tbat you
were destined to such a bard life, you
cannot expect anything else than tbat
which you look for.
If, on tbe other hand, no matter bow
poor you may be today, you can see a
better future; If you believe that some
day you are going to rise out of bum
drum work, that you are going to get
up out of the basement of life Into tbe
drawing room, whero beauty, comfort
and Joy await you; if your ambition Is
clean cut and you keep your eye stead
ily npon the goal which you hope to
reach and feel confident that you have
the ability to attain It, you will accom
plish something worth while, The di
rection of your effort will follow your
eye. If that looks up as well as on,
you will climb.
That one quality of holding persist
ently the faith in themselves and nev
er allowing anything to weaken tbe be
lief that somehow they would accom
plish what they undertook has been the
underlying principle, of all great
achievers. The great majority of men
and women who have given civilization
a great . uplift started poor and for
many dark years saw no hope of ac
complishing their ambition, but they
kept on working and believing that
somehow a way would be opened.
Think of what this attitude of hopeful
ness and faith has done for the world's
great Inventors how most of them
plodded on through many years of dry,
dreary drudgery before the light came,
and the light would Lever have come
but for their faith, hope and persistent
What If they had listened to their
advisers! Even those who loved them
tried to beg them to give up the fool
ishness of coining their lives Into that
which would never be practical or use
ful. We are enjoying today thousands
of blessings, comforts and conveniences
which have been bequeathed us by
those resolute souls who were obliged
often to turn a deaf ear to the plead
ings of those they loved best as they
struggled on amid want and woe for
many years. Success.

Generally any kind of soft, sibilant
noise will tempt a bird to sing. A ca
nary hung In a kitchen will usually
start bis song tf he hears, say, the friz
zling of a frying pan. We utilize spe
cial devices to tempt the shy singer,
who Is perhaps rendered the more bash
ful by finding himself In novel sur
roundings. For this purpose we em
ploy whistles and song organs, which
artificially reproduce the "tours" of the
roller. This latter method Is found to
be irresistible when all other plans have
failed. The bird feels apparently tbat
be Is being challenged and forthwith
responds to the challenge by pouring
forth the best of bis song. London

Treating Wrong Disease.
Many times women call on their famllj
physicians, suffering, as they Imagine,
one from dyspepsia, another from heart
disease, another from liver or kidney
disease, another from nervous exhaustion
or prostration, another with pain here and
there, and in this way they all present
alike to themselves and llieir easy-going
and Indifferent, or over-busv doctor, sep
arate and distinct diseases, for which he,
assuming them to he such, prescribes his
pills and potions. In reality, they are all
only fymvttmu caused by some uterine
disease. The physician, ignorant of the
rati of suffering, encourages this prac
tice until large bills are made. The suf
fering patient gets no better, but probably
worse, by reason of the delay, wrong
treatment and consequent complications.
A proper medicine like Or. l'ierce's Fa
vorite Prescription, directed to Uie caum
would have entirely removed the disease,
thereby dispelling all those distressing
symptoms, and instituting comfort in
stead of prolonged misery. It has been
well said, that "a disease known is half
