ing trlbea of North America and of
northeast Asia hold It a sin to take
op a burning ember for a pipe light
with the point of a knife. The ex

bannea de Piano Carpinl when he tella
us that one of the Tartar superstitions
concerns "sticking a knife Into the fire
or In any way touching the fire with
a knife or even taking meat out of the

This la evidently connected with the
ancient Idea that fire la a living crea

Johann Sleberlich is by nature aus
picious; but, says the Albany Journal,
he appreciates a reasonable proposi
tion. A traveling butcher came his
way one day and bargained with him
for eight head of fine cattle. The price
being satisfactory, the butcher felt In
his pocket and found be bad not

"I have not the money with me," he

"That goes not gootlYou shouldt

"Well, I tell you what 111 do," said
the butcher frankly. "I'll drive only
six of them In, and I'll leave the other
two as security for the debt."
Johann studied a moment and then
bis face lighted.
"All right," he said. "Dot Is chust

A. Brandt, In bis writings on the hu

beard Is a hereditary remnant of anl

an acquisition, so that even the occa

significance, for as man has overtaken
woman In his whole organization so It
Is the case also with reference to the
