C, F, CLAPP SOLE AGENI' step over to the library of congress I think you can easily tind some book on HtutuoH that will tell you all you want to know. It Is a woman, I am sure, so look for the female statues." A younger member of the house replied to the question about the statue most suavely and confidingly, "It Is the god of progress; you know his name." Several of the colored men In tho various pnrt.s of the building wen- nearly nil ((iilic Kurt 1 It was the (Jod- dess of Freedom. One of them knew the yi'iir. IHtKJ. when It was placed above the dome, mid he iitlirmed, "It Is the Goddess of American Liberty Before the War." "Vou want- to know the name of that Htutue? Well, just wait u minute, and I will get It for you llrst hand." Arid u moot accommodating guide passed Into the senate chamber. Directly he returned. "That la a statue of Poculumtas." Kvery one had a different name for the Htutue, not one giving tho real name. "Armed Liberty." The statue wus modeled by Thomas Crawford, father of the novelist, tin- late K. Marlon Crawford. It was cast at a Maryland foundry. Jefferson Davis was secretary of war when the model was tlrst presented In tho war department. Tho statue then wore u liberty cap and carried a bundle of nxls. Davis objected to the liberty cap 113 being emblematic of the emancipated olaves. while Americans wero freeborn. Ho also thought the bundle of rods, suggesting the functions of the Itoman llctor. htd lost Its symbolic character. Because of these criticisms of Secretary Davis the model was changed, and "Armed Liberty" was evolved. The statue la nine feet six Inches tall and weighs H.985 pounds. It was put In place on Dec. '2, 18»Kl. The head Is thrown back and adoruetl with eagle's beak and plumes. The right hand rest* on u sword, and the left holds an olive branch and a shield. Tho mantle is gracefully draped ami Is hold by a brooch bearing "U. S." on Its face. The helmet Is encircled with stars. The supporting glcilio bears the legend "K I'lnrllnia LMiisni." — Washington 1'osi. Out of It Qr«w the Great Fibrlo of th« Gk*rm Thtory, ft was a fixed belief of the nnclnnt* that many living creature* could come Into fxlntence in » flpontaneoaii fan fa- ton, to which allunfofi ban often been mad*. The true beginning of the germ theory arose out of a ludicrously simple reservation made ny Kedl, a Florentine physician, about the- middle of the seventeenth century. He debated with his confrere* In Ffotence thu question of the origin of the maggots appearing In decomposing meat, Tlrer old view hold, of course, that the maggots were bred within dead nn»l putrefying HUbstanccH. I{cdt, taking n piece- of meat, covered the mouth of the Jar In which It was contained 'with a' piece- of flno gauze. He beheld the llesh Hies,, attracted by the smell of the decaying meat, coming to deposit th"lr «.>ggH, after the manner of their kind, In the decomposing substance. The gauze, however, kept them from effecting this natural object, with the result that the eggs wore laid on the surface of the gauze and the maggots there hatched out, while the difcuy of the meat went on uninterruptedly without a single maggot appearing In Its substance. On this childishly simple experiment the great fabric of the germ theory of today was founded, for If the law of universal parentage applied to the case of maggots and meat It was clear, argued Hcdl, that It must apply universally. Subsequent experimentation proved the words to be true, and so today, when our attention Is focused upon gt;rms or microbes so minute that we might accommodate many hundreds of thousands of them on the surface of a postage stnrnp, we ngaln come face to face with Ucdl's first principle that ouch germ could only have sprung from a preceding and parental organ- lsm.--Brooklyn Knglc. MISTAKES IN TITLES. "Love's Discourses" Has Nothing to Do With Cupid's Pranks. It Is interesting to collect certain of the Instances of mistakes In regard to the titles of hooks. Thus the old farmer who anked for "ICdgworth on Irish nulls" got no doubt something he did cot expect, and the dainty youth who applied for "Love's Discourses" did not really wish a volume of sermons by Christopher Love. If application is made by messenger, mistakes of a different sort may occur. An excitable boy once asked for Blrfiiop Cocks and Hen's "Earnest Communicant;" he meant Bishop Oxcnden's. Similarly by Warne's "Moral Cookery" he meant his "Model Cookery." A maid forgot all about the title of the book she had been sent for except that It was "something like tomato soup." She was served with "Red Pottage." It may have been a fault of pronunciation on the part of the purchaser who asked for "rubber bands" that ho received a copy of "llobert Burus," but It was certainly the bookseller who was ot soa who referred an applicant for "Vega's Logarithmic Tables" to the "funlture department." In cataloguing booksellers frequently err. Thus Mr. Madan, the Oxford scholar, who wrote a urnmurnr• and dictionary of the Swa- hell hiitf.;u:i£e. had those works catalogued us "Madam Switheli's Gnim- n'lir" ni:d In the line beneath, "Do. do. T)i( tlunary." Iteceiilly. too, a book of Mr. Lucas', "A Swan and Her Frlor.ds," stlvlnj; an account of Miss Sewnrd. "thf> cwan of Llchfleld." was classified na "Anide Swan and Her Friends."—Manchester Guardian. That Battled It. The commissioners In lunacy were nonplused. The man on whose mental condition the courts had appointed them to pass seemed perfectly Htine It spile of all testimony to the contrary Ills every action, his every remark win rntloiuil. They were about to givfc up in despair when matters took an unexpected turn. "Oh, doctor, permit me to return the umbrella I borrowed from you last week," said the patient. And then, at the thought of earning their fees with no qualms of conscience, the learned men decided that any one who would voluntarily return a borrowed umbrella should be placed under restraint. This simply proves how trifles will over mold our destinies.—New York Times.
