Ollivier Beaure^-ard. the eminent Egyptologist,, to publish a fow of the rmimmiliei] jokes of that ancient Empire of the Nile has necessarily ovcnvhclmcd the great host Of modern humorists with consternation says the Philadelphia Record. Egypt has been claimed as the great mother of almost everything else, save for a baby's share which has been allotted to Babylonia; and it is to be dreadcfl that the true 'antiquity of the joke'will be revealed among- the other awful secrets of the tombs 'of the Pharaohs. Solomon's maxim that there is nothing new under the sun has long been an accepted dictum, even among the joke-makers; and no less a person- , age than ?.Jark Twain has reduced the joke gcrms-or, rather, joke elements— to seven Aryan ancestors. What these seven jokes of the Seven Foolish Men 1-iuehod at Koah uuiiiling the ark: •••When is a door not a dcorT .nncl "Where was Moses when the light wont out?" It is distressing to reah/.e these t:icts 'in'the case; but what a, harrowing situation will'onsue if M. JJi-nurcgnnl shall discover the one original, primitive, protoplasmic joke globule, the father of all these nineteenth century joke- lets! imagine the literary scientists placing this Akkadian joke under the microscope and inviting the world to gaze upon the great and ouly "Jokicnsis Eozoc-n!" The modern joker could not survive such a pitiless expose. His occupation, like Othello's, would be gone forever. STOLEN FROMJTHE VATICAN. Precious Miiilaturos l!:ive Kcpentcclly Ui'ou Stolen from t:>«- 1'np 1 * 1 I'*l nc f- Audacious and repeated thefts of precious miniatures from the -Vatican library have been detected in the fol- lowin" manner: Quite recently a person ofTered for sale to Prof. Chieriei some exquisite miniatures which he said were copies of those in certain works in the Vatican library. It happened that the professor had examined the originals in their places in the Vatican library, and was at once convinced that the originals, and not copies, were before him. Tic at once informed Mgr- Carini, the vatioan librarian, who verified the fact that many precious miniatures wore missing from ancient books and parchments. The police were comnninieuted with, and after some research two persons have been arrested who, 'if not the thieves, were vrmlovibtoi'ily in league with them. One is a pcrf-on who called himself Prof. Sardi, of Pnierno. but is identified as Giovanni Rapi.s-'i.rdi, of «i- ar.eavilla, in the province of Patemo. The other is an antiquary named Ta- vax/.. Among the stolen articles were forty- one miniatures from a parchment volume of the year 1100, entitled "I/Omelia di Frate Giacorno." Seventeen miniatures were also taken from another parchment, entitled "I Tnoafi di Petrarca." Of the former thirty-nine have been recovered. All the sales ivere made to foreigners. A beautiful portrait of Donna Laura, cut from the Petrarca. manuscript, was sold at Flor- a^ » *^l* JVi^V-^J W* of ancient days tverc it may only conjectured: but.undoubtedly, the woman's ngc, woman's tongue and tbe mother-in-law jokes were among them, and were cracked by our rude ancestors in the old care dwellings of early Keauthropic times with infinite gusto. The younjr-man-who-stays-late and the old-man'.s-boot may have been later accretions- Certainly the young housekeeper and the man-who-nevci-pays- back %viUicisms do not date much later than the days of Koah.

The tide of settlement which later turned northward into "Wisconsin an<1 crossed the Mississippi into Iowa and Missouri gave all its energies :st first to the production of \vhoat. Still later Minnesota, Nebraska, Kansas and the Dakotas were occupied by the wheat farmers, and they made their way across the plains and around by the Isthmus of Panama to the valleys of California, Oregon and Washington. But as the wheat fields advanced westward the older wheat regions constantly reduced their acreage of this grain and their farmers turned to other crops. lu later years southern Wisconsin and southern Minnesota and all Iowa, where formerly wheat was the great staple crop, have gone into dairying and stock raising with very satisfactory results iu the increase of population and wealth and in the elevation of the condition of the tillers of the soU. The same change will come about in northern Minnesota, in the two Dakotas, ic Manitoba and in the valleys of Oregon and Washington. Less .wheat will bw raised and the soil will yield a much "•reater money return per acre when more labor is applied to it and products arc more diversified. We do not mean to say that wheat growing in to be abandoned. It has not been given up_ In Ohio, or in Vfrmsylv.inia., or in Nuw' York-, but it will become only orjc farm industry among many. . After thn change has come about our vast prairie country wil! be found to be much i:?'iru prosperous under the regime of diversified agriculture than it could possibly h:ivo "become with wheat as its only m:irk<:t crop, even if the nM high prices coul.l r!;;-,iin prevail.
