Col. Robert G. Ingersoll’s Eloquent
Tribute to Tobacco.
Four centuries ago Columbus, th«
adventurous, on the blessed isle ol
Cuba, saw happy people with rolled
leaves between their lips. Above theli
heads were little clouds of smoke.
Their faces were serene and in their
eyes was the autumnal look of con-
tent. These people were kind, i»- no (
cent, gentle and loving.
The climate of Cuba is the friend- i
ship of the earth and the air, and ol I
this climate the sacred leaves were'

smooth the wrinkled brows of care;
drii 1 fear and strange misshapen
drea from out the mind and fill the
heart with rest and peace. Within
their magic w'arp and woof some po-
tent, gracious spell imprisoned lies,
that, when released by fire, doth softly
steal within the fortress of the brain
and bind in sleep the captured senti-
nels of care and grief. These leaves
are the friends of the fireside, and
their smokelike incense rises from
myriads of happy homes. Cuba Is the
smile of the sea.
According to This, Adam Was De-
signed as a Filterer.
Many reasons have been assigned
for the creation of man, and many the
uses to which he has been put; but It
was reserved for a woman to discover
that our first parent was designed as a
The Sunday school in the parish of
St. M. was called to order by the gen-
tle, genial pastor The lesson was
from Genesis, which the busy, bustling
wife of the parson expounded to a
class of slxteen-yenr-old girls it the
following manner:
“You see. girls, by closely studying
the text, that by every natural and di-
vine law woman is man’s superior. In
the beginning the Almighty made man
out of black dirt, there being no better
material lying round. After the divine
essence was breathed into man. the
Creator found a substance good enough
for the creation of woman. Eve was
strained through Adam, the latter be-
ing used as a filterer, so to speak.
When woman is wicked it is an indi-
cation that some of the gritty black
particles of the original old Adam
have escaped in the process of filtra-
tion. For woman in comparison with
man is as the purest, whitest diamond
dust to tVo blackest dirt.”

as the Avon's “liquid mud and gutter-
like bed," and ever since the brldg*

Sit ('onil'IeraM** Doubt Is tUpreiittd lo
Antiquarian Cirri**.
In antiquarian circles considerable
doubt exists as to the authenticity of
the chair at present in ,he Municipal
Museum at Canterbury, England
which the Bishop of Hereford wis i s
to be returned to its original quar e:s
in the chancel of the village ohurcl at
Stanford Bishop. The chair is suppos-
ed to have beet made by St. Augustine
when spreading Christianity in the
Herefordshire district. It was discov-
ered a few years ago by the la*e Dr.
James Johnston, and is claimed to be
I the most perfect example of ancient
British carpentry in existence.
I The chair is made of roughly hewn
oak boards fastened together with
wooden pegs. It is oblong in shape,
measurirg thirty-two inches in
breadth and twenty-two inches in
width. The seat is twenty-six inches
in length and eighteen inches in
width, and appears to have been origi-
nally two inches in thickness. It i»
movable, llice the lid of a box, tht
hinges being two round tenons in-
serted into mortise holes in the rear
posts. The construction of the chair
is similar in many respects to an old
Roman solium. The chair may date
from the year 590, out it is doubtful
if Augustine used it.
