People who wore shoes in Italy during the fourteenth century had to pay a tax for the privilege. In Germany the men aa well as the women wear wedding rings. When either dies the survivor wears both. Fashion plates containing designs for clothing for pet dogs are regularly issued by some of the Parisian tailors. The longest tunnel in the world is St. Gothard, which is 48,840 feet. The next longest are Mount Cenls, 39,850 feet; Hoosack, 26,080 feet; Severn, 22,992 feet; Nochistongs, 21,669 feet; Sutis, 21,120 feet. In Russia the forest a.rea covers 42 per cent of the whole surface; in Sweden, 35 per cent; in Austria, 33 per cent"; in Germany, 26 per cent; in France, 10 per cent, and in Great Britain and Ireland, only 4 per cent. The following are said by a Swiss hunter to have been found near the nest of an eagle recently discovered in the Alps: A hare, 27 chamois' feet, 4 pigeons' feet, 30 pheasants' feet, .11 heads of fowls, 18 heads of grouse and the remains of a number of rabbits, marmots and squirrels. A careful examination of the trees that are struck by lightning shows that over half of them are white poplar. Frqm this fact scientists conclude that the poplar has some value as-a conductor of lightning. This being the case, agriculturists are advised to plant these trees in the vicinity of their farm buildings. .•',.. MEN AND WOMEN. Sir Arthur Sullivan as a boy was one of the members of the choir of the Chapel Royal, St. James'.

A floating barrier of pumice stone 1& miles long, over 1,000 yards wide and 15 feet deep, closing ft seaport to all vessels as effectually as a booto ceiild do, Is not the sort of thing one is likely to forget ahd yet that was one of the results of the Krakotoa eruption, the port being Telok Retoung, In Sunda straits, says Leisure Hours* Formed In a few hours, it would almost seem t6 be the supreme effort of nature lit the pumice-making line were it not that sUch immense quantities ate foUhd at the bottom of the sea—a queer place for piimlce stone. But pumice, when produced, is really heavy. It is only the air cavities in it that make it light and as it floats it becomes water logged and down it goes. Most of the pumice we use In Europe comes from the Lipari islands, north of Sicily, "the home of Vulcan," whence Vtilcano 16 the name of one of them and our "volcano" is descriptive of the natural feature of which it is the type. Here are the pumice quarries—at Monte Chirica and its craters Monte Pelata and Forgla Vecchla^-where over 1,000 men are at work in the narrow tunnels and galleries, lighted by clay lamps of antique form. The whole hillside Is perforated with groups of these tunnels, which number between 200 and 300 and are so narrow that the men can hardly pass each other in them. And just as coal Is found In beds alternated with sandstone iind shale, so the pumice is in layers between harder lavas and ashes. CAT IN THE PULPIT. Pastor Cauglit It by tho Nook and tho Usher Took It Atvay. An inquisitive black cnt strayed Into Ihe Bristol Methodist Episcopal church on a recent Sunday evening just before the services began,, says the Pittsburg Chronicle-Telegraph. There were very few people in the church at the time, but the loud and plaintive mewing of the stranger attracted their attention and they watched Us movements with interest. The animal climbed up into the choir loft, perched upon the railing and looked down upon the congregation. After a time several members of the choir arrived and the cat scampered away, finally climbing down one of the wooden pillars which supported the choir loft and walked down Into the aisle. Several of the congregation endeavored to coax the cat into their pews, but the proud pussy ignored them and with stately dignity climbed up into the pulpit and sat on the bible. When the pastor came in a moment later he fO'imd the cat in possession of the pulpit, but the animal took kindly to the preacher and began to purr and arch his back at the latter's approach. The pastor took the cat by the back of the neck and handed It down to an usher, who carried puss out of the church. "This is a good omen, brethren," said the pastor and then he went on and preached his sermon. Monkeys at Work In the Truusviial. Captain E. Moss, who recently re- curned to London from.the Transvaal, tells this story of the monkeys who work for him in the mines: "I have twenty-four monkeys," said he, "employed about my mines. They do the work of seven able-bodied men, and it Is no reflection upon the human laborers to say that they do a class of .work a man cannot do as well as they. In many instances they lend valuable aid where a man Is useless, They gather up the small pieces of quartz that would be passed unnoticed by the workingman, and pile them up in little heaps that can easily be gathered up in a shovel and be thrown in the mill, They a^-e exceedingly adept at catching the little particles, and their sharp eyes never escape the very things that the human eye would pass over. When I went digging gold I had two monkeys that were exceedingly interesting pets, They were constantly following me about the mines, and one day I noticed that they were busily engaged In gathering up little bits of quartz and putting them in piles, They seemed to enjoy the labor very much, and would go to the mines every morning, and work there during the day. It did not take me long to learn their value as laborers, and I decided to procure more. So I immediately procured a number, and 'now have two dozen working daily In and about the mines. It is exceedingly interesting to watch my two pet monkeys teach the new ones how to work, and still stranger to see how the new comers take to it, They work Just as they please, sometimes going down into the mines when they have cleared up all the debris on the outside, They live and work together without quarrelling any more than men. do. They are quite methodical in their habits, and go to work and finish up in the same manner as huraan beings would do under sim- <lar circumstances. fivery hdiisewlfe should impress Upon tte inlncts of her family tiat the b«st sauce for any meat is cheerfulness. Laughter aids digestion, and people should never grutable while eating. In making Indian meal mush, cook it with milk Itt place of water', or part water ftnd part milk if not convenient to use all milk, the puddlhg will be ffiuch richer, and when fried will tnbfe readily take a iiiee brown. Milkweed pods make a fine down for stuffing headrest cushions. Those fortunate enough to be In the country will have no trouble in finding plenty alottg the roadside, and cah gather enough to bring home with taent for many a winter evening's comfort, In relaying carpets after the fall cleaning It la Well to sprinkle sqme- thlhg under the edges to destroy any carpet bugs that may be lurking around. As good a thing as can be Used is a powder made of equal parts of camphor gum and tobacco. An exceedingly nervous person who cannot sleep may often be quieted and put to sleep by being rubbed with a towel wrung out of hot salted water. Frequently a change from a warm be.l to a cool one will tend to quiet a nervous person and make him drowsy. Hop pillows are frequently of great comfort to a nervous person, and will often soothe a headache. It is well to have one or two of these pillows at hand In case of need. Linen covers worked with some appropriate motto or a spray of the graceful hops In wash silks are attractive In appearance and can always be freshened by being washed. When setting sponge for bread or rolls, double the quantity may bo made and that not needed kept In the refrigerator or wherever It Is cold enough to prevent the sponge from rising. In this way rolls may be had fresh each day without setting an extra sponge. This dough requires a little longer to rise, but the results will be as good as If it were freshly set. Among the silver novelties for the table are found flower sets of spo'ons enameled In delicate natural shades. The bowl Is made to represent a flower, and the handle is formed of the flower's stem and the leaves. The rose, pansy, lily, daisy and red clover are some of the prettiest designs, and are very attractive when seen upon the saucer of a dainty after-dinner coffee j cup.
