medium by money-changers. They
are usually made up in packs of 62,

good many people play cards for
pleasure, in which ease their oppo-
nents are said to be buying experi-
ence. In mof t tard gaines the rule
is that the cards may l e cut, but not
otherwise marked. This rule is not
strictly observed in gaines in which
only three cards are used; indeed,
the mnrking of cards has attained a
high degree of perfection since tho
introduction of numerous card index
systems. Fashions change in card
games as in everything else. Old
Madrid, for instance, is nowadays
seldom played in the lxjst clubs.
Pla ying cards should not be con-
fused with those sold on cricket
grounds, which are rather larger, or
with visiting cards, which are
TRIBUTE TO JAPANESE.
Dr. Marie Slopes of London has
juit returned from a scientific trip
through the coal regions of Japan.
"The main object of my mission to
Japan was to search for botanical
fossils," said Dr. Stopes. "For 18
months 1 traveled from one island
to another hunting for fossils in the
rich coal mines that abound in that
country. Fruitful though my search
was from the scientific point, what
impressed me most was the respect
and kindness shown me by the peo-
ple. 1 visited places where no Eu-
ropean had ever set foot before, the
unknown region of Yeao, and even
the squalid villages of the super-
stitious, semi-civilized Ainus, and

EMOTION ANO THE LANGUAGE
Peculiar Oharacterlstlo Noted In Loi-
ter Written by Rescued Miner
at Cherry, III.
Tt. is noted that emotion may sim-
plify language. One of the rescued
from the mine at Cherry, III., Joe
Peggati, an Italian, wrote a fare-
well letter to his wife. Therein, the
proportion of Latin words written
by this man of Latin race is strik-
ingly small. Words of I-atin origin
are neaTlv 40 per cent, in Shake-
sjtfarc, and in Milton about CO per
cent. But in this miner's letter of
84 words, only these eight were
Latin: Because, comrades, lamp,
mercy, property, quiet, safety, vir-
gin. But look at his Anglo-Saxon
vocabulary: A, afraid, all, alsA, and,
am, hark, become, been, being, but,
can, chew, come, dark, day, die,
down, eaten, eating, for, fourth,

THE ORIGIN OF NUMBERS.
The me of visible sij?ns to denote
numbers can Ih> traced to remote
times, hut our present decimal svs-
tem in its complete form ^ilh the
zero is of Indian or ITindif origin.
From the Hindus it passed to the
Arabians. about ir t> A. i>. In Eu-
rope the complete svstetn was de-
rived from the Arabs in the twelfth
century. The use of numerals in
India e«n he traced W.ck to the
Mana Chat inscriptions, supposed to
date from the early part of the third
century, B. C. The earliest known
example of a date written on tlie
modern system is of TMH A. D.
WOUNDED HEART SEWED UP.
A remarkable operation was per-
formed in Paris, recently, on a
young married man who had at-
tempted to commit suicide oy shoot-
ing himself through the heart. Dr.
Cerne found that the bullet had
pierced the right ventricle, and that
only a daring ot^rntion could save
the patient. La} wg bare the man's
heart, he sewed up both ends of the
wound. The operation, which took
three-quarters of an hour, was most
successful, and the patient is doing
BOOTY FOUND IN HAYSTACK.
Over a year ogo the sum of $600
mysteriously disappeared from the
offices of an estate, near Colchester,
Eng. The amount had been sent to
the steward for the payment of the
workmen of the estate, and the stew-
ard made the loss good. The money
was found one day recently in s
haystack which some men were cut-
ting for fodder, the thief having evi-
deUlv failed to find the two hags
o( gold which he had stolen and hid-
den nv"" ir¿ the stack.
The quiet and picturesque little
,village of Termonfeekin, near Drog-
heda, Ireland, had a sensation of its
own last week. The rumor got
abroad that all the wells in the vi-
cinity of the village had been
poisoned by some malicious person,
and on examination it was found
that substances such as oil and
paints were floating on the surface
of each well. Near one well a dog
was found dead, while a dead eat lay
beside a second well. It was nat-
urally assumed that they were
poisoned while drinking water, and
the residents, becoming alarmed, re-
ported the matter to the police. On
making investigations the police
concluded that the discoloration of
the water was due to a paint mixture
known as "Spanish brown."
SILENCE AND IT? RESULTS.
When husbands fall into the silent
habit, wives often resort to an ex-
pedient in nearly all eases disas-
trous—that is, asking questions. It
is well known that the masculine
mind dislikes questions. To escape
questioning, sotn'1 men try discour-
tesy, others meet it with evasion or
misrepresentation, or^y giving in-
formation in so piecemeal a way that
the questioner grows discouraged.
T'ntil men learn that the lives of
women are narrow and often mo-
notonous, and that women long to
share the more vital interests of the
day, they are not likely to acquire
the sympathy that will lead them to
more generous treatment.—Harper's
Death o! Lfltl: Child
Tuesday night Horace Frank*

son of Mr. and Mrs. H. F. Oil-
ley died at the home of Mrs. J.
H. Curtis near here and the re-

afternoon at five o'clock, J. W.

services at the family residence
Horace was a sweet innocent
little boy and had been in rather
delicate health for some time,
but was not considered to be «e-
riously sick till a few days ago
when symptoms of heart failure
developed, this being the imme-

a good attendance of friends at
the cemetery and the little new-

NEW RHODESIAN STAMPS.
The British South Africa Com
panv, having decided that the offi-
cial name of their territory should
appear on their stamps, have caused
the current issue to Is? overprinted
with the word "Rhodesia" in fancy
.type, at the same time surcharging
new values on four stamps of the
series. We understand that the over-
printed issue is to be replaced by a
permanent one, in which the name

The presbytery of Tvrouptre, Rus-

Late Wednesday afternoon
there was a rather dangerous
runaway in West Caldwell when
little Ruth Hale and Elna Kelly
were driving: along the street in
a bug¿ry. Either the harness on
the horse got out of fix 6ome
>vay or he took fright at some-
thing, at any rate, he began
kicking and running and the two
little girls were thrown >ut oí
the buggy and considerably
shaken up, but not seriously
liurt. They were both on their
i'eet in ;t few minutes. Charlie
Bullock who was nearby caught
the hoxse and found that there
was no damage done the buggy
and but little to the harness. For
the time being there was great
excitement on the streets in that
part of town.
