THE LAST LAP. No ono who has over talion part in a long-dlstanop race lint will toll yon how every stop or tho last lap mount tho conquest nf weariness hy tho will. There tin'ist bi' no stacking, no pausing to look round and take breath if the w inning post ls to be renelle*! before lils rival eau overtake him!

MOVING MOUNTAINS. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 21 October 1911
MOVING MOUNTAINS. Geodetic studies In the Himalayas and the Tibetan mountains have brought to light a strange plienomenon, or one that must he regarded as strange If It exists. It ls no less than an apparent creeping of these gigantic mountain ranges, tho mightiest on the globe, sideways towards the south, with a consequent crumbling up of the Siwallk hills. It has long been known that there exist curious anomalies In the density of the earth under and ad- jacent to the Himalayas, but this sug- gestion of a creeping motion is novel. Tile surveys which are still guille nu may eventually disclose the fads, but the operations on the Tibetan side are rendered difficult by the fact thal ac- cess tn Tibet is rorhhldcn to foreign ors, even when they come only in the name of science.

I THROUGH EASTERN EYES. Hindoo women have long been no- ted for their reticence, ¡ind the fact that two of them should have thrown off this reserve to criticise their Wes- tern ulsters is of considerable interest. The critics are two Indian ladles, ut whom one is a queen, the Maharani nf Daroda. wife of the Gaeltwar of that State, anl the other the Princess I'ra tiva. u daughter of tile Maharaja ol' Kooe.h Delia and granddaughter of the renowned Kosliuh Clumder Sen. The Maharani or I lamda lins twice' visite.1 tlio United States, and this is what » she says of American women: - "The women of your big, vast, young eoiiniry, I confess, disappointed me. I had heard so much of them-that they equalled the French women lu their two most striking finalities of chlo and vivacity; that tiley dressed far better than the English women; were as co- quettish, though In a [ranker way, ns the Spanish; that they were, in short, us, fascinating as tile most fascinai ing women ia tile world-tho iîtis...

UNDISCIPLINED DESIRES. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 21 October 1911
UNDISCIPLINED DESIRES. If a man loves any one thlnK-say, rare hooks or picttires, or objects of art of any kind, or music, or science -so well that for the sake of tho one thing in which he would be rich lie ls willing to be poor in everything else, no matter though his choice be an un- wise ono according to the best stan- dards of choice, he will yet have a mo. tlve which will help to keep him upright. But for those who love none of these things, but simply desire them because it is the habit of the time because, like pampered children, they must needs cry for whatever they see just out of their reach-for them ls needed the wholesome self-discipline which shall teach them to let alone" whatever ls not theirs. And the be- ginning ot this self-discipline Is in the home. Parents miiBt teach their boys and girls tho great lesson nf doing without whatever cannot be fitly theirs.

I FOUND BY A DONKEY. Hera ia a story about Guanajay, a town not tar from Havana. It is told by Irene A. Wright in her recent book on Cuba: "In the enrly years when Indian chiefs were still powerful enough to make It worth tho Spaniards' while to placate them the daughter of a caci- que of a Guanajay tribe was robbed ot a wonderful necklace ot pearls. So great was her father's wrath that It became necessary to punish someone for the theft; and as tho culprit rould not be Identified they pitched upun u young man who, by some unhappy dr. cumstance, might be safely charned with the crime.' "The young man was condemned to die, though he denied his guilt up to tho very moment ot execution. A priest, mounted on a mule, accompan- ied him to the spot where death was to be Inflicted. Tho victim, still protesting that ho had stolen no pearls, asked for ton minutes' final grace, and it was grant- ed.

A Trifle Mixed. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 21 October 1911
A Trifle Mixed. A class ot boys had been examined In geography, the previous day having been devoted to grammar. Among the geographical questions was the fol- lowing: "Name the zones." One pro- mising youth, of eleven years, who had mixed the two subjects, wrote: "There arc two zones, masculine and feminine. The masculine ls either temperate or Intemperate; the femi- nine ls either torrid or frigid." This story ls told ot how Mark Twain once snubbed a couple of young fellows who were "putting on side" In a New York restaurant. Mark was sit- ting near these gentlemen, and their remarks caused him a great deal of annoyance. At length one of them summoned a waiter, and in a command, lng tone gave an order for some oy- sters. "Mind you tell the chef whom they are for," he added. "Yes," drawled tho other, "better tell him my name, too, so as to lie certain that everything ls all right." Presently a walter approached Mark Twain's table. "I say," Mark called to him. imi- tating tho young f...

A CRISIS OF LUTHER'S LIFE. Luther's lifo wns full of startling and unexpected crises, and tho firBt and most startling of them came In the summer of 150.r>, after he had been a law student for less than six months. Ho had just hcen home for a brief visit (writes Arthur C. McGlffcrt In the "Century Magazine.") His pro- gress In lils work had benn all that could bo desired, and his parents' pride nnd hope were higher thnn ever, when suddenly, to the consternation of everybody and to the wrath of his father, who was already thinking of an honorable marriage for him which should still further Improve his pro- spects, he threw lt all up and went In- to a monastery. The immediate oc- casion of this extraordinary step was a terrific thunderstorm which overtook him Just outside the town when he wns returning from his visit home.
