JELLYFISH'S STING NO JOKE
Past Known in "Poertuguese Man-of.
War' Is Dreadf Vby Bathers, for
The Jellyflsh has long heen the sub-
ject of mirth and jest. but at times It
Is aggressive and formidable, and Its
sting ls a source of fear for bathers.
The sting of the southern Portuguese
jellyfish, known technically as the No-
imens, Is very severe.I
Jellyfish are found In the trade-
wind belts of all oceans. Each Por-
tuguese "man-of-war." as the Jellyfish
Is sometimes known, ls made up of a .
number of small animals of the Jelly-
fish order, which have In common an
Iridescent colored. buhhle1ike float,
about the size of a man's hand, which I
rests on the surface of the water. A
fin or sail enables the float to make
headway across the wind, rather than
with It. The Jellyfish has long paper-
like tentacles, and these are equipped l
with the stings. When they brush'
against bathers they burn and leave@ "
red welts that Itch and burn for houras-
and should two or three pass over a
man's arm at once, they would almost
paralyze it. Some years ago scientists
discovered a little man-of-war fis that
accompanies the man-of-war jellyfisbh.
It swims around the float until danger
threatens, when it sneaks underneath
and Is safe from harm under the pro-
tection of the Jellyfish's tentacles.
Possible Cause of Fever. .
t The Medical Journal asks It *'al& f!g

It. may not be due to soMe change in
the fluids of the body which prevents
water from being available as perspir-
ation which lhy Its evaporation serves
to keep the body cool."
It may le that the practice of mak-
Ing a fever patient perspire freely has
another purpose than the washing out
of Impurities from the blood, this be-
ing an actual cooling by evaporation.
"An abundance of water has been
found beneficial in fevers, and there
are many clinicians who are decidedly
of the opinion that cold-water bathe
have much more than merely a direct
and mechanical refrigerating purpose,
for they are followed by rather free
diuresis and often also 10 perspira-
tion. Indeed, one of the great Indica-
lons for bath in fever Is that the
skin Is dry and hot. for It is under
these circumstances that the bath will
do much god&."
Birde' Speed Deceptive,
An Interesting check on aome et
those gunners who know their bird was

to paint a duck on a long board at
the end of an express train running
at, say 00 ifiles an hour, and let the
gunner blaze away at the painted duck
at normal duck-shooting ranges to
check-up the speed of the painted bird,
with the "lead" necessary to give the
charge to hit the wild duck allowed to
have gone 100 miles per. Neither train
nor long-winged honker gives a fair
Idea of the actual speed, because they

Japaese Masks of Shame. h
One of the most unusual features of
a Japanese court to a stranger Is the
fact that each prisoner has his head
covered by a wicker mask, more like li
an Inverted waste-lasket than any-
thing elite, the object of which Is to s
prove"t recognition of the prisoner, to
permit hhim to hide his shame under
the disuise and, very possibly, to pre- t
vent him from making a bolt for llb-

BROUGHT STRIKERS TO TERMS
African Explorer Put His Wits to Bear
In Controversy With Obetrep-
Although the plan Is not capable of
wide application, the tale of a strike
In central Africa, told by an exploring
member of the English Royal Anthro-
pological Institute. Is pleasant reading
for the promptness with which the
matter was settled.' The explorer was
journeying by water and, coming to
an African village where he needed a
pew relay of paddlers, he found that
all the available paddlers had truckck"
aot for higher wages but against any
paddling whatever. The expedition
was held up. and the men who refused
to paddle stood apart and evidently
considered the plight of the explorer
a matter of considerable unsympa-
thetic amusement. The explorer, how-
ever. thought he saw a way out. He
asked some of the women of the vii-
lag to coine aboard his boat and sell
him od; and as soon as several of
them were on board he unfastened the
hawner, the boat swung out from tOi
shore and began to travel with thb
current. Ashore and afloat anxiety
followed. Presently the men who had
refused to paddle the explorer were
paddling their own little canoes In
pursuit and volubly demanding the
return to their womenfolk. The larger
craft, and presumably the armanment.
of the traveler gave him an advantage.
He was able to Issue an uliiutatum.
No women, he said In effect. %itlhout
peaddlers, but one woman for every
man of the tribe who would ngre to
help paddle the expedition through the
next stage. The men accepted the
bargain; and as there were saen
thirty women on the InMt the expedi-
tion got Its neee.suarY mplemnent of
paddlers and the strike was over.

Some years ago a French shepherd
of Aveyron lost two sheep. The fol-
lowing evening a figure in a black robe
and with tonsured head appeared to
him. and told him to look for the lost
members of his flock In a cave near
Altes, adding that he would there find
"more than sheep."
The next day the shepherd found
the cave mouth exactly as described.
Inside were his two sheep. Beyond.
he tcame ulmon a chapel carved In the
rock and containing chalices, censse,
and cmandle-sticks all made of solid
silver, and of very considerable value.
A letter found In a ml.-al showed that
the pliae had been used as a place of
worship during the Reigl of Terror in
1793. The shepherd took the orna-
ments to his piri.sh priest and was
well rewarded for his find.
How Asbestos is Produced.
The finest asbestos, and the great-
er part of the world's supply, comes
from Quebec. Asbestos Is a fibrous
mineral that can be spun and woven
Into fairies as fine as silk. which are

2,000 to 3,000 degrees F. It is found
In layers tilling fissures in certain ser-
pentine rocks. It Is believed that.
when the rock was forming and still
hot. water penetrated the fissures, wid-
ened them and dissolved some of the
silica and magnesila. On drying, these
crystallized as a hydrated silicate of
magnesia, forming threadlike crystals
building up from opposite walls nt the
fissures and meeting In the middle.

NOT VASTLY RICH
Anident Men of Wealth Just
Compared With the Stupendous For-
times of Today Those Old Fellows
Would Have Been Considered
Merely as "Pikers.&
For a long time the names of
Croesus, Crassus and Monte Cristo
were used In co'r::i.;on to express
great wealth. The two first historical
fgurea represented riches In Greece
and Rome and the fictitions figure of:
the latter did the same for recent I
times. How rich Croesus was thereot
is no way of judging. The value of the
treasure which he displayed to Solon:
cannot be estimated. A saying ascribed
to Crassus gives at least some idea
of what he considered affluence. lie
declared that no one could be consid-1
ered rich who could not maintain an
army. This. of course, would be a
great undertaking even at that period.
though an army then was not in size
anything like an army of today, nor
was the equipment or sustenance near-
ly as costly. At Pharsali, Caesar had
22,000 legionaries, 1,000 cavalry; Pom-t
pey 45,000 legionarie% 7,000 cavalry.
Also history records that at the time
of his election to the consulate with
Pompey he feasted the Roman popu-
lace at 10,000 tables and gave each
family corn for three months.
The question which came up, how-
ever, was In regard to the financial
resources of Monte Cristo. Nowhere In
the novel are figures given from
which a complete answer can be de-
rived. The prices which the count paid
for his possessions and for producing
his spectacular effects are frequently
mentioned, but not so often that the
sum total can be known. However In
the very last chapter, just before
Monte Cristo disappears In the East.
a hint to dropped as to the wealth
which Dumas had in mind as original-
ly belonging to the count and what ac-
cordingly he believed constituted al-
most fabulous riches at that time. In
almost his very last words in the book,
Monte Cristo says: "You do not know
all the joy which life affords with a
great fortune. I possess nearly 100.-
000,000." By this, of course, he would
mean francs and therefore at the end
of his career of reward and vengeance
the eoant had $20,000,000. When Monte
Cristo arrived In Paris he had his
first interview with the banker. Dan-

finitely that he will need for the year

rather that Dumas considered that his

Inference is that the figures set by
Dumas In his mid as the wealth of
Monte Cristo at the beginning cannot
have been very much more compara-

course, Is a goodly fortune even In
these days, but nothing very remark.

New York's Beginnings.
The first street railway In the
world was the New York and Harlem
read, built on the Bowery in New
York city and opened for travel from
Prince street to the present site of
UneIon square, in November. 1832. Two
horsedrawn vehicles fashioned some-
what like a stage coach of the period
were run over the line on the day of
the opening, carrying as passengers
Mayor Walter Bowne, the city coun.
cllme. and other Invited guests. The
affair attracted many spectators and
convinced the most skeptical that the
new horse cars were certain to be a
great convenience. The road was ex-
tended to Murray Hill In 1838 and
reached the Harlem river In 1839.
Fares were paid in silver sixpences
of the' old Spanish currency then In
circulation, and one of the road's orig-
Inal features still In existence Is the
old Park avenue tunnel under Murray
HilL Horse cars were discontinued (t
New York city on July 28., 1917, when
a few oeicials of the New York Rail
way company and the public service
emmlssleon boarded an old car of the
Bleecker street line, and took turns
in driving the antiquated vehicle on

Gets 'Em on the Fly.
The Wilson warbler is the champloo
fly-catcher of the United States. His
method of getting most of his food Is
to dash out from the limb of a tree
and snatch passing insects oa the
wing. They catch other Insects which
are flitting about or sitting on the
foliage or blossoms of the trees. You
will often find these little birds in ap-
ple trees when in bloom. Their olive
green and yellow plumage harmonies
with the green leaves of the trees.
The male bird has a black crown patch
on the top of Its head. while on the
female this cap Is greenish like the
back. This bird Is found throughout
the eastern United States but winters
In Central America.

Semiramis is called the "legendary"
queen of Assyria, but Babylon was an

In the siege of Bactria she herself led
a forlorn hol|e against the walls and
captured It. Enchanted by her power,
King Ninus resolved to make her his
queen. Omnes committed suicide. At
the king's death, Sentlramls ruled the

sun's halos are good weather
Many weather proverbs based
upea the observation of halos are
founded upon sound selentific princ-
ples. Studies of the relation of halos
to rainfall show that during the sum-
mer months 56 to 00 per cent of all
halos are followed by rain within 36
bowrs. During the winter months 70
to 75 per cent are so followed.
True poetry, like true eloquence, is
the voice of nature appealing to the
heart with it& utmost sublimity and
power Instead of teaching
merely, it persuades, elevates, Inspires.
It excites a feeling where the other
leavo an opinion or a maxim. It pro-
poaes examples of Ideal excellence, and
raises virtue into heroism.-Hugh

Round the library fire in the Four

One of these stories was of a novel

judge. which Is recalled by a writer
in the Irish World. as follows:
*"(;.ntleinen of the jury," a judge be-

PLACES PLAME 01 MERCHANT
Ace.Idlas te Engir Visitor, He Is

AdOpd by Wemen.
TIe more important question uOn
deni ath the clothes question Is what
sort of appeal the new audaciousw"
styles are Intended to make, or do
in:lke. says the Boston Transcript.
Mrs. Beatrice Forbes-Robertson Hale's
entertaining talk on this queUste
starts off by saying frankly: "I do lot-
believe that dress is based as a sez
appeal." She thinks It is rather the
reflction of a class appeal-the at-
tempt to display wealth.
After democracy had done away
with man's lace cuffs, frills, wigs. vel-
vet cloaks and such ostentatious lux-
ury of attire It became bad form for
a man to show his class by his clothes,
and so he advertises his prosperity by
dressing up his wife.
"The modern American wife," says
Mrs. Hale, "is nothing short of a shop
window for her husband; ado shows
off his success. I speak of the average
human critter, of course, not of the
Intellectual man. The cause of the In-
herent snobbishness of overdress
comes from aping the thoughts of the
old society system of Europe. Our edu-
cation In dress here in America has
come from the merchant who has
goods to sell; we don't know where
we are today, trying to wear all the
styles these merchants are willing to
sell us. We do not wear flimsy ma-
terials because we are trying to make
a sex appeal, but because It is to the
interest of the merchant to sell us
