MICE AND MISERS
Two Would Seem to Have Some
Snrt nf Affinitv
And Uncle Sam Is Frequently Called
Upon to. Make Good the Depreda-
tions Made in Hidden Hoards
by the Rodents.
Uncle Sam is so broad-minded that
he -goes nut of bis way to help the
miser 'pha treasury in Washington
often receives wads of greenbacks or
baiiknotes that misers have buried or
otherwise hidden In places where- they
rotted or were chewed -up by mice
nnj! in such cases the money if enough
Is left of It to he recognizable Is re-
paid to the owner in crisp new bills.
It is a curious fact about misers
that nearly always they do not hide
th:ir money in one place but scatter
It about in aU .sorts of. odd spots the
Idea doubtless being' that in case of
theft only a minor fraction of the
hoard is likely to be discovered by the
Tims it has happened many a time
that a miser's -house after his demise
had to be literally torn to pieces in
order to recover bis wealth. Indeed
In isuch instances it 1 often found ex-
pedient to break up the furniture und
rip the seams nf every article of cloth-
ing and bedding.
The miser is bonularlv sunnosed to
. . t
-entertain a marked preference for
gold. But gold is hard to get nov- j
days; ami. anyway; misers in these j
time woum rattier nave paper money j
which is more easily and safely hid-

The rrally up-to-date miser how-I
does not hide his. monev at all. I

where it cannot be stolen and draws

FAMOUS LAKE OF MENTEITH
Historic Spot In Scotland Which Is
Inseparably Connected With Un-
fortunate Queen Mary.
The Lake of Mentelth Is one of
Scotland's most beautiful bits of
scenery. Bordered by far-stretching
marshes and shadowy slppes .with
heather-covered hills rising beyond and
trees bending over Its curving shores
It Is a picture to enchant even tne
tourist wearied by "doing" many Scot-
Out In the blue water shaded islands
stand. About one of these Inchma-
home the Interest of the lake centers.
A boat hired at the village port at the
head of the lake reaches the island
quickly nere one forgets the beauty
of the surroundings as the guide tells
the story of the visit of Mary hapless
queen of Scots.
As a tiny five-year-bid maid she was
taken to the Island to escape an un-"
desirable suitor and here for five
mouths she and her four Marys her
playmates lived in childlike happiness.
Queen Mnry's bower a- little high-
walled garden cared for by the five
children stands just as she left it. Va-
rious trees are pointed out as espe-
cially beloved by the little queen.
Some of the giant trees that shaded
the Island so pleasantly were old when
Queen Mary and her -maids of honor
played beneath their branches. There
is the nuns' walk arched by lofty chest-
nuts: and sturdy oaks.
The ruins of an old Augustine priory
add another touch of beauty to the pic-
turesque island. Inside the church Is
the grave of the founder and the
quaint figure of a knight leaning on
his shield graven with the emblem of
the Stuart clan.
DATE FROM SOLOMON'S TIME
Theory of Archeologlsts Concerning
Ruins in Rhodesia Baboons Said
to Be Working Havoc.
Despite' the watchmen who nowadays
guard the -retnarkahle ruins of Ithode-
sia where may perhaps once have
been the mines of King Solomon the
latest traveler In that part of Africa
reports that the baboons are dealing
with the ancient masonry after a. very
I'abonnlsh fashion. Century after cen-
tury the clearness of the atmosphere
and the absence of moisture have pre-
served the walls of buildings whose
original use will probably never be
known. It may be reasonably argued
f t.. . k
im)i;h-i turn sunn ul uit'iii fi fa- um
fiontOIlR mnt for protection against
nntjw lribos and that this part of
Africa was a center for the mining and
distribution of gold the very spot. In
fact where Ophlr obtained the pre-
clous metal that It forwarded to the
court of Solomon. So far as can be
determined. Solomon and the struc-
tures were contemporaries and It is
likely enough that the new mysterious
relics of a remote past were later in
the possession of the Phoenicians. In
the end the mines were exhausted the
civilizations went their wny.and the
spot was forgotten until Portuguese
traders found It in the sixteenth cen-
tury. An effort to work the mines was
ninde but abandoned as proflfless. and
1lc sl)0t was nPan forgotten till found
by Livingstone. Now It Is chiefly ln-

That's why It Is that so many people

heart of tho real man crush them.
But where men see the possibilities
there Is no limit to what they may
