"Hello, old fellow! have you quite forgotten your friends, or are your thoughts so occupied with the fair Mar garet that ins gniflcant men like me can gain no entrance into the inner rece-sts of your mind'" Brian was sitting in the library, with his feet gracefully elevatcd, and his mind deep in thought, and the , njoy ment of a cigar, wuen Bertie burst in upon him with this greeting. He jumped to his feet at the sound of the well-remembered voice, and making a grab for Bertic's hand, wrung it fotar some seconds in silence. "So it is really you." he said, when he found his voice. "Do 'lare! I wouldn't have known you.. Take a chair and make yourself at home. Had an idea you'd turn up." "Like a bad penny," put in Eertie. "By the way, that simile is about worn out.

The Horseshoe. Every one knows how common It is in country districts to see horseshoes nailed against the doorseef barns and cottages, as a harbinger of good-luck This old custom has lately come undex motice in a paper on the "Folklore of the Horseshoe," read by Dr. .Roberl Laurence before the American Folk Lore Society. He believes that the cus tom of nailing up horseshoes originated in the rites of the Passover, the blood sprinkled on tire doorposts and the lintel at the time of the great Jewish feasts marking the chief points of an arch, which is reproduced in the form of the horseshoe. It is also possible that the custom is traceable to the idea that the horse brings luck, for inlegendary lore the animal has often been credited with. supernatural gifts. Wit and Humer.

A QugOeson of SbVp. Tso fundamental principle of navig, hion, and therefore the controlling ele- | mentary law of maritime strategy, i the physieal law of displacement-tha4 a floating vessel invariably weighs neither more nor less than the quantity of water which its immersed part dl-. Tb places. It Is p consequence of this t law that the weight of a ship of given the size is constant. Within certain limits t a builder may distribute the weight eld as he pleases. He may assign so much twell to hull, so much to engine of propul sion and the remainder to cargo. Fox a given speed, the weight of engines for ships of the same size will be much the same. The builder, therefore, must rhogee between assigning weight to hull or giving it to cargo. A very strong hull means reduced barrying capacity, a great carrying capacity means a hull of the lightest possible construction. To these elementary conditions is due "the difference between a ship of was aod a merchant ship; the merchant ship rqu...
