Events Seem So Only Because We Do
Not Foresee Them
The mind is often said to be illumi
nated by a sudden idea or the will to
come to a sudden resolution. The sud
denness is not only apparent to the on
looker: it is felt by the subject him
self. when light seems to Slash into his
aiind or his will to determine itself 011
an instant. He may talk of inspiration,
meaning the unrelated act of some pow
er outside himseif. Just so we talk of
the suddenness of lightning, the sudden
ness of an earthquake. We imagine
eartquakes and lightning flashes as un
related. independent haj»penings and
forget that every earthquake and everv
flash of lightning is the manifestation
of an immutable and slowlv working
law and could, had men but knowledge
enough, have been foretold from the
Things are sudden only because we
do not foresee them, and their su iden
ness is no inherent quality in them
selves; it is lent them by our igno
rance. The striking of a mat» b may be
as sudden as a flash of lightning and
the fall of a pin as sudden as a pistol
shot, but ill normal conditions they
do not make us "jump," because the
conditions are the state of our nerves
and tlie relative force of the impact
upon our senses. A camel falig suddenly
under the last straw, but it is*lhc pre
vious slow piling of all the other straws
that is the cause of his broken back.
Nothing is. in reality, more sudden than
anything else; it is from ourselves, from
our lack of comprehension and prepara
tion, that the lightning, the earthquake
and the pistol shot borrow their sud
denness.—London Times.
The Myrtle Warbler
The myrtle warbler breeds in the
northern and eastern parts of the Unit
ed States, but migrates through every
woodland path and is so numerous that
it is familiar to every observer. More
than three-fourths of its food consists
of insects, practically all of which are
ifarmful. The bird is small, nimble and
successfully attacks inserts too minute
to be prey for larger birds. These in
sects are its chief items of food.
Antiquity of the Grape
The native country of the grapevine
is the region around the Caspian sea
extending through Armenia and as far
west as the Crimea. The grape has been
cultivated from the remotest antiquity,
being mentioned in the Hebrew scrip
tures and in all of the most ancient
Jupiter in Mythology
In Roman mythology Jupiter was the
supreme deity. the head and front of
the whole system, god of the air aud
king of the celestials. He waa primarily
a divinity of the sky and the origi
nator of all atmospheric- changes and
weather conditions. His weapon was
the thunderbolt and one of his titles
was Jupiter Tonans, thundering Jupi
ter. Heavy or continuous rain was at
tributed to Jupiter Pluvius, rainv or
rain sending Jupiter. When the earth
became parched with heat and was in
sore need of rain Romans invoked the
great God as "Jupiter Pluvius."
Don't Let the Rains Wash the Value
able Plant Food Away
If you knew that it takes nature
10.000 years to form a root of soil
maybe yon would have a higher opin
ion of Mother Earth and be more care
ful how you drain your garden or field.
If you saw a granary full of rat
holes you would* suspect a careless
farmer. But a field left to wash away
by the unchecked rush of surplus sur
face water after a downpour is fully
as wasteful. The only difference is
that here the waste is of plant food
before it g*ets into the grain.
If your garden field is on a slope,
terrace it; if on a level, plant it not in
straight rows, but in circles. And in
•both cases tile# drain it, for the stuff
that washes away is precisely the stuff
that your crops most need. Once gone
it is expensive to replace.
When you stop to think that every
thing depends on thg soil, clearly the
soil ia worth saving.—Seattle Star.
A Dog Story
We brought from Scotland a collie
about six months old. He was allow
ed to be with us at the breakfast ta
ble, but never to be fed in the dining
room. This rule was enforced by my
daughter. I was the only member of
the family that ever broke over the
rule. And often when I offered him
a tempting bone he would' glance
across the table, and if lie caught the
forbidding eye he would resist the
temptation. But one morning she left
the table abruptly. Kab followed her
into the hall and watched her until she
had closed the door of her study.
Then he scampered back, nudged my
elbow, as if to say, "Now is our
time,'' seized the bone and was soon
crunching it with the greatest satis
faction.—London Spectator.
"We learn by experience," said the
ready made philosopher.
"That's true," remarked Mr.
tlrowcher. "We get a lot of informa
tion from experience, but it doesn't
seem to help. What's the good of
knowing what the weather was day be
fore yesterdayt"—Washington Star.
Land Measure
One acre contains 160 square rods,
4,840 square yards, 43.560 square feet.
The side of a square must measure as
follows to contain Ten acres, 660 feet;
one acre, 208.71; half acre, 147.58;
third acre, 120.50; fourth acre, 104.38;
eighth aide, 73.79.
She ought to make a good business
" What makes you think so?"
"She doesn't insist on getting down
to the depot an hour 'before it's time
for her train to start."—Detroit Free
Knicker—You have a boy in college
and a girl cultivating her voicef
Boiker —Yes. and I don't know which
has the better yell.—Brooklyn I^ife.
Massachusetts Now Turns Out Nearly

Thomas Beard, arriving by the May
flower in 16-9, was the first shoemak
er to come from England to America.
He settled at Salem, Mass.
More than $250,000,00*0 is now in
vested in American ahoemaking and
more than 200.000 wage earners are
Before 1850 practically every s'hoe
making process was a hand process.
Lynn, Mass, with over 100 factories,
is the leading shoe city of the world.
Of the world's boots and shoes inoro
than 47 per cent, are made in Massa
.lohn Brooks Nichols, of Lynn, adapt
ed the Howe sewing machine to new
the uppers of shoes in 1851, and this
was the first important step in the ap
plication of machinery to shoemaking.
William P. Trowbridge, at Felton
ville, now a part of Marlborough, Mass.,
applied to the shoemaking
machinery of 1855. Steam anil water
power came later.
The poet whittier was a shoemaker
in his youth. Henry Wilson, eighteenth
vice president of the United States, was
"the Natick cobbler" and was always
proud of his shoemakiDg days.
Bbenezer Breed of "Lynn is cerdited
with securing by personal influence the
first protective tariff on shoes. He was
a merchant of Revolutionary times.
August Destouv, a New York me
chanic, invented in 1862 the firtft curv
ed needle to sew turn shoe.—From "A
