Greeks once had a method of making names known
which wise merchants of today might profitably employ
—if they are inb usiness to make money.
Spartans made children repeat daily the names of
the 300 warriers who held the pass at Thermopylae.
Repetition was the thing—in the course of time
which made those 300 famous. Keen business men who
read this will see the point—and have already noted how
the illustrations helps this ad.

tractive cuts of all kinds—and the best of printing. At

Female pythons not only lay eggs,
but incubate them by brooding them,

mother begins sitting on the eggs.
The word “sheik” in Arabic means
“an old man.”
In Arabia, as in many other coun-
tries, salt is the symbol of hospital-
ity, and among the Arabs hospitality
is almost a sacred thing. They tell
of a thief who broke into a house
one night and in looking about the
place came upon a small gold box.
He opened it and inside it found an-
other box, also of gold. That in turn
held a third box, which was partly
filled with a fine white powder. The
thief tasted the powder and found
that it was salt. Immediately he
restored to their places all valuables
that he had gathered to carry off.
He could not rob a house in which
he had “eaten salt."—Youth’s Com-

Weather Gan Be
Seen in Sky
By a little study and observation of
signs written plainly in the skies, any
intelligent person should be able to
make accurate weather forecasts in
his own locality from day to day, ac-
cording to Prof, W. J. Humphreys,
meteorologist of the United States
Weather Bureau. And in this the old
weather proverbs that have proved
dependable from long experience will
be found of groat assistance.
The colors of the sky and the ap
pearance of the sun, the moon and
the stars provide a fairly accurate
basis for local predictions, says Prof.
Humphreys in Popular Science
Monthly for June. For such predic-
tions, he adds, are really inferences
drawn from observations of the at-
mosphere, inasmuch as the appear-
ance of the sky and of heavenly bod-
ies depends upon atmospheric condi-
For example, a red morning sun
implies a moist atmosphere, and rain
may be expected later in the day. On
the other hand, a red evening sky
means that the air contains so little
moisture that rain within the coming
24 hours is improbable. If at eve-
ning the sky along the western hori-
zon is yelldwish or greenish, it
means that there is little moisture
in the air, and that the next day will
be fair. But if at evening the sky is
overcast with a uniform gray, the at-
mosphere far aloft is saturated with
moisture and the next day is likely
to be rainy.
The old saying, “Rain before 7,
clear before 11,” is based on the
scientific fact that an early morning
rain dries the air by taking water out
of it and cleans it of dust. Like-
wise, there is truth in the old pro-
verb, “A red sun has water in his
eye,” for when the air is charged
heavily with dust particles that have
become laden with moisture, we see
