Is there such a thing as a snake
iorerl Just ask the' keeper of the
reptile house who has fioeri there foi>
years, anrl he will tell "you snakes are
beautiful and kind. Of course, you
cun.'t expect too much Intelligence, hut
he has one hog-nosed snake who was
the pet of an old Quaker for years,
and the reverend gentleman read the
Hlble to him every night, which he
seemed to enjoy hearing. This sport
has been denied him lately, since the
Plea for Natural History.
We content ourselves with a knowl-
edge of the tongues, and a little skill
in philology, or history, perhaps, and
antiquity; and neglect that which to
me seems more material. I mean na-
tural history. I do not discommend or
derogate from those other studies; I
should betray mine own ignorance
and weakness should 1 do so; I only
wish they might not altogether jostle
and exclude this. I wish that this
might be brought In fashion among
us.—John Hay (1691).
Nation's "Balance of Trade."
"Balance of trade" Is an expression
used by political economists To Indi-
cate the difference between the value
I of the exports and Imports of a coun-
try. This theory of the balance of
trade grew out of the mercantile
theory, which considers the possession
of gold to be the chief object of trade.
Hence, there rose the belief that a na-
tion increases in wealth to the extent
that the money value of its exports
exceeds that of Imports.
The ancient Greeks dedicated the
rose to Harpocrntes, the God of Si-
lence. and garlands of roses were
draped over the doors of rooms In
which debates or conferences were
tftking place In token that words
which were spoken "sub rosa"—under
the rose—were secret and not to be
repeated outside. Hence our use of
the term tc denote something told In
Memorial to Great Scientist.

Susquehanna river at Northumberlaic:

of the Pennsylvania State college, who

memorial to the great scientist.

Explains Sodom and Gomorrah.
Bricks cemented together with dr • d
petroleum have curiously enough, bee
found in large quantities In Xlnc\oh

phur-impregnated shales of the valley

and fire" which destroyed Sodom and
Family Men Favored.
In one chemical factory In Switzer-
