Great English Actor
Vagrant by Instinct
Miss Tidswell, the kindly benefactor
of the youthful Edmund Kean, taught
him to recite, and read Shakespeare
to him. But even kindness and com-
fort could not ease his hectic spirit.
Occasionally he would break his bonds
and run away to sleep In barns, to
haunt wayside Inns—imitating imps
and apes, tumbling, dancing, reciting,
and singing for his bread ‘and butter.
That Miss Tidswell locked him in
his bedroom with his schoolbooks
made but little difference; he would
wriggle down the water pipe at his
window to wander for days, restless
and uncontrollable as an alley cat.
Even the device of welding on his
neck a brass collar inscribed “This
boy belongs to Number 9 Leicester
square, Please send him home,” had
no effect; covering the fetter with his
kerchief he defied detection and was

this state of torture sent him to lodge

. Soho—a Mr. and Mrs. Duncan.
Playing the grand Inquisitor did not
greatly appeal to Mr. Duncan. It dis
turbed his slumbers after his ‘four
ale” at the neighborhood pub. He
complained: “He used to sleep with
me and my wife in his irons, and
they hurt us.”
Live Comfortably in
Canadian Sod Houses
Ihe traveler in the Canadian prov-
inces of Saskatchewan and Alberta is
astonished at the great number of
sod houses scattered throughout the
prairie farming district. These do not
occur in the vicinity of the towns, bul
are out about ten miles or more. One
might suppose that such rude struc-
tures were the result of poverty. On
the contrary, the sod houses denote
advancing prosperity.
When the homesteader takes up a
section of wheat land in western Can-
ada he plants his crop at the earliest
possible moment In order that he may
not miss a harvest. Often he is occu-
pled to such an extent with these ag-
ricultural operations that he neglects
his dwelling house and hurriedly
throws together a rude makeshift of
sod. Even though it were desired to
erect a frame house, this could be
done only with great difficulty because
of the scarcity of lumber. It Is far
better to live In temporary quarters
until the railroad pushes out into that
territory and brings the cowmfcrts of
civilization. However, these god
houses are by no means uncomfort-
able, for they are wonderfully cool in
summer and correspondingly warm ir
St. Dznis
St. Denis, the patron saint of
France, especially during the cen
turies of the old monarchy, is known
in history as Dionysius, the first bish-
op of Paris. In the year 270 he and
his companions suffered martyrdom.
The bishop’s body was buried at a
spot about five miles north of Paris
Somewhat later a chapel was built
over the grave and it was a place for
pilgrimages during the Fifth and Sixth
centuries. In the year 630 King Da-
gobert built an abbey there, and later
buildings of like kind still stand there.
One is occupied by a school for daugh-
ters of members of the Legion of
Honor, founded by Napoleon I. A
town grew up about the spot, known
then as now as St. Denis. Once It
was held to be the military key of
Paris. Today it is an industrial place
with a population of 65,000.
Character in Making
Some writers assert that character
is formed in the days of childhood.
says the Los Angeles Times. They ai-
lege that in infancy the habits of age
are formed. If the kid throws mud
he is going to be a politician. If he
likes to play with dolls he is going
to be a movie actor. If he fights with
all the other boys in the block he will
be a lawyer. If he robs birds’ nests
he is going to be a promoter. So the
argument might go. As a matter of
fact very little character is formed in
the kindergarten stage. It does not
develop until the contacts of life in
school, college and business begin to
be felt.’

Spread of Leprosy
America was discovered about the
time that leprosy was widespread in
Europe and there is evidence that the
earliest emigrants from Portugal and
Spain carried leprosy with them. Mon.

as 1543. The African slave trade was
a more important factor, however, ir

Uselessness of War
~ Proved by Voltaire
Ore of Voltaire’s most popular
books, his history of Charles XII, I3
devoted to a practical proof of the
utter folly of war. The life of Charles
XII of Sweden is an example without
equal of the colossal futility of war.
Charles, one of the world’s most ine
spiring examples of a capable, inde-
fatigable ruler, in a life of self-denial,
had but one fault. He spent his entire
life making war. Starting his career
at the age of eighteen with the suc-
cessful defense of his kingdom against
the combined forces of several of the
greatest countries of Europe, within
a comparatively short time he was
complete dictator of eastern Europe.
Many times he overwhelmed forces
outnumbering his own five or ten to
one. Crowning and dethroning kings
almost at will, his aims were usually
altruistic. He sought always to be
impartial and just. He undertook no
offensive war with the iptention of bet-
tering himself or his country. Yet
when he died he had done no lasting
good. He had irreparably impover-
ished his own and other countries, and
bad wasted his great life, which might
have been so productive of good to th2
world. In telling this most signifi-
cant story Voltaire impressed upon the
world the terrifying uselessness of the
thing he so hated—war.—From “The
Young Voltaire,” by C. B. Chase,
Small Change of No
Interest to Royalty
wouls Philippe of Bourbon. the
French pretender, had a royal way of
shopping. When the World war was
tt its height, he stalked into an ex-
rensive boot shop in London and or-
jered a dozen pairs of boots and shoes.
The bootmaker wanted to suggest
:omething on account, as the man
vas a stranger, but his remark that
‘he bill would run to about $250 met
vith no response. So his wife tact-
fully asked for some money toward
the cost of buying leather. The
stranger pulled out a thick roll of
ireasury notes and handed it over.
A week later he returned and “t ied
mn,” The result was satisfactory and
‘he bootmaker inquired as to where
‘0 send the order.
“You may consign it to the king ot
srance,” he replied, and named his
aotel. The order was delivered by
nessenger with a flowery letter in
french, in which was enclosed $22.50,
representing the amount overpaid. A
fey or two later a secretary appeared
it the shop with the news that the
ing was incensed at the refund, add-
mg affably that it would have been
ill the same if the balance had been

The Blue Danube
Near Vienna on the Danube at the

British monitor the Glowworm got
styinied haifway up it, couldn't go
sither forward or astern, and had to

would go up or blew up.

Pure Air on Market
im Amsterdam, Holland, the munici- |
pal electric light works sell air to eiti-
gens. This seems an odd by-product
of the electric industry until it is con-
sidered that the electric ozonation
process is one of the most effective |
means of purifying air just as light-
ning “freshens” a dank and humid at-
mosphere, stimulating those who
breathe it. The Dutch air is drawn
down through a chimney 100 feet high,
purified and dried by electricity and
compressed into cylinders like those
used for soda fountain gas in Ameriea.
These are sold to homes in the city
on an annual contract basis, for about
$24 a year. Slow release of the air

Slitting Parrot’s Tongue
“It is a widespread superstition that
to enable a parrot to talk (in imita-
tion of human speech) it is necessary
to split the tongue,” says Alexander
Wetmore in the Scientific Magazine.
“This, however, has no foundation in
fact, and when practiced only inflicts
an unnecessary cruelty. Birds make
sounds in a little organ known as the
syrinx at the lower end of the trachea
or windpipe, and as the tongue has
little to do with the process, splitting
it has no connection whatever with
the ability to imitate sounds.”
A “Show Me” Boy
Bobby had his mother’s best bread
knife out in the yard, where he had
been trying to cut bricks. His moth-
er found him at the job and asked
“How in the world do you expect
mother to cut bread with that knife
when you get through?”
*7 don’t know, mother. Show me
now,” came back Bobby, who handed
the knife back to the fond parent.—
