Early Cradle Formed =
From Hollowed Log
Cradles, in thelr earliest form, were
merely logs, scooped out to form more
or less comfortable resting places for
babies. They were without rockers,
since the natural shape of the logs
made their use unnecessary. Cradles
have varied with different modes of
living and reflect in their diversity of
form and adornment the progress of
the cabinetmaker's art. The Romans
are sald to have used cradles of con-
siderable refinement, but after the de-
cline of the empire, accompanied as
it was with the decay of living, the
cradle, with other furniture forms, as-
sumed a crude and humble aspect.
One of the early forms of the cradle
was the oaken chest without a 1d.
Baskets of osiers were sometimes
used, in which the child, wrapped in
swaddling clothes, was placed, The
American cradle of oak in the Metro-
politan museum in New York dates
fiom the early Seventeenth century.
Fabulous wealth and the skill of the
greatest craftsmen have been lavished
on the cradles of royal children
throughout history. These important
beds have been gilded and carved, in-
tricately inlaid with gold and gems,
upholstered in the choicest silks and
fitted with the most sumptuous of cov-
erings of velvet and fur.— Dorothy

‘Ancients Used Bells
for Various Purposes
The use of small bells to summon
attendants goes back over 3,000 years.
Assyrian tombs, uncovered from the
ruins and dust of ages, show that
hand bells not unlike our conventional
shapes, were used in old-time Nineveh.
Egyptian sculptured work in more
than one inscription also shows that
remote antiquity in this as in many
another respect had the same ideas of
comfort, and sought to gratify them
in much the same manner that we do.
We find bells mentioned very early in
the history of Israel. The high priest
was directed to wear them on the
fringes of his official vestments, alter-
nating them with purple, blue and
scarlet artificial pomegranates, so that
he might be heard when he went In
and out of the holy place to sacrifice,
as the Book of Exodus has it, “that he
die not.” Then, as now, all the ac-
cessories of divine worship were sym-
bolical, the tinkling golden bells prob-
ably typifying the lips that ought ever
to be open for prayer, and the tongue
that ought ever tc be crying mercy
when concerned about the sacrifices
and other services of the sanctuary
Old Confession of Faith
The ‘Apostle’s Creed is a confession
of faith dating from the Fourth cen-
tury, which has been incorporated
either in part or as a whole by prac-
tically every Christian church. A leg-
end was to the effect that the Apos-
tle’s Creed was formed by the apos-
tles themselves, but there fis slight
documentary proof of this, It is by
many supposed to have been taken
from the confession of Peter, see
Mark 16:16, and from the baptismal
invocation which determined the trin-
itarian order and arrangement. The
earliest authentic mention is found in
a passage in the works of St. Irenae-
us, who died in 202 A. D., when about
eighty years old.
Silk for Body Sinews
A recent development in surgery is
the use of silk as a substitute for va-
rious body tissues. With certain pre-
cautions silk sinews may be trans-
planted into the body. In this way,
natural sinews which are too short
can be lengthened. A further appli-
cation is in the form of silken liga-
ments employed as a substitute for
ligaments which have been torn or in-
jured by disease or accident, as in the
case of lateral ligaments in the knee,
elbow, ete. Likewise, it is possible to
create with silk new artificial sustain-
Seeds Hold Life Long
Seeds of the Indian lotus a century
old have more active life in them than
the same kind of seeds of last year's
crop, according to a report of Dr.
Ichiro Ohga of the Education institute
of Dairen, Manchuria, to the Ameri
can Journal of Botany. Doctor Ohga
tested these ancient seeds both by
sprouting and by chemical examina-
tion, and they won on both counts.
The research was carried on during
Doctor Ohga’s sojourn in this coun-
try, at the Boyce Thompson institute,
Yonkers, N. Y,
The young miss was filling out an
application for a position in one of
the city offices.
One of the questions was: “What 1s
the length of your residence in the
pity?” She answered thus: “About
- Another question was this: “Any
physical defects?” She answered:
Habits Weave Chains
Habits are to life what rails are to
a railroad train. A train runs where
it has run before. So do most peo-
ple, their habits directing them and
guiding them. Only good habits are
1kely to carry one in the direction he
should go, the route that it is worth
while to travel.—Grit.
Lawyer Left Opening
for Verbal Brickbat
A good story is told of the late
Chief Justice White of the United
States Supreme court, Who was fa-
mous for his wit. A few months be-
fore his death the chief justice was
approached one morning by Judge
Timothy T. Ansberry, former member
of congress from Ohio and a prac-
ticing lawyer in Washington.
“Good morning, Mr. Chief Justice,”
said Judge Ansberry. “I hope you are
“Good morning,” was the response;
but not recognizing Ansberry, the
chief justice added cautiously, “Is it
possible that I have forgotten your
“It's Ansberry,” was the answer.
“Oly, yes, my dear Ansberry,” the
jurist hastily put in. “How are you?
But you must excuse me for not
recognizing you instantly. You know
the cataracts are forming over my
eyes and I do not see as well as I
“But,” said Ansberry, “I noticed
shat the cataracts do not prevent yeu
seeing the deficiences in my argu
ments hefore your court.”
Smiling broadly, the distinguishea
Jurist laid a hand on Ansberry’s
“No. my dear Ansherry, a blind man
2ould see them.”
Then turning to a friend who hap-
pened to be in the group, the chief
justice laughingly said:
“He gave me a charce te throw a
orick, didn’t he?’—Kansas City Star.
The Modest Groom
At a village church a wedding was
fixed and the happy morn arrived. In
due course a youthful swain and a
buxom damsel presented themselves
at the chancel steps.
When the supposed bridegroom was
asked, “Wilt thou have this woman to
be thy wedded wife?’ he stammered:
“Please, sir, I'm not the man! I
don’t want to get married!”
“Not the man!” exclaimed the cler-
gyman aghast. “Then where is the
“He's down at the bottom of the
church, sir. He's too shy to come up.”
Norway’s National Saint
Saint Olaf, born in 995, became king
of Norway and was a stern opponent
of paganism. He was deposed and the
erown offered to Canute, against whom
Olaf fell fighting. He was buried in
Trondheim cathedral, and became the
national saint of Norway.
Founded by Columbus
The first European city in the New
world, named Isabella, was founded by
Christopher Columbus in December,
1493, on the northern shore of Haiti,
about 25 miles west of the present
town of Puerta Plata... .
Yields Valuable Timber
Yew is one of the most character
istic evergreen trees in Great Britain.
It attains a great age and yields an ex-
ceedingly hard timber. Yew was the
favorite wood for the old English
long-bow, and its extreme hardness
renders it suitable for cabinet work,
axletrees and the like where strength
and durability are required.
National Capitol Facts

base line of the east front of the cap-
itol at Washington is 287 feet 5 inches.
The height from the top of the balus-
trades of the building is 217 feet 11
inches. The rotunda is 97 feet 6
inches in diameter and its height from
the floor to the top of the canopy is
