for the unmarried girls to peer

Discovered Jules Verne,
iletzel, tho French publisher, dls
covered Jules Verne. Iletzel began
with Verne by a life contract, guar
amoving an annual sum of J-1,000
which seemed immense riches to the
unknown writer. It was not ut all
proportionate to tho rapid success
and sale of his books throughout tho
known world. Jules Verne was con-
tent with his bargain and for many,
many years furnished dutifully liis two
volumes a year. At his death ho left
several more finished, or nearly so,
which explains the continued appear
auce of new works tearing his name.
Hotzel took pains to provide the writer
who was layiug golden eggs for him,

his inventive powers.

India's Aluminum Wealth.
India offers a great field for future
supplies of aluminum. There are
great deposits of luterlto and buuxito
from which aluminum is derived. It
Is said that tho Indian product could
be placed on the market at a llgure
but little more than half that of the
present quotation. Tho use of this
metal Is handicapped by tho cost at
present, and If the metal could bo
secured at a lower cost Its field of
usefulness would be greatly expanded.
There are many comparatively ac-
cessible points where factories for tho
extraction of aluminum could be lo-
Credit is an estimate of your ca
pacity to worry ubout paying your
bills which is held about you by a lot
of total strangers. Credit Is also a be
lief held of your ability to pay for
something long ufter you huve ceased
to derive any benefit from it Credit
Is likewise a gauge of yout willingness
to deceive yourself into the belief you
cun afford to buy something because
you cannot pay cash for it. If every
body paid cash there would be no
bond Issues, no huge clerical forces,
no national debts, no armies or inili
tary systems, no schools such as exist
toduy, no war, no degenerate fash

Cities With Nine Lives.
The teaching of history Is that a
city is hard to kill. For instance,
lamdon has been decimated five times
by plagues, In addition to visitations
of typhus, cholera and other epidem-
ics. She lias been burned more or
less several times. Paris has gone
through eight sieges, ten famines, two
plagues and one fire which devastated
it. Rome has been swept by pesti-
lence no fewer Ilian ten times. She
has been twice burned and six times
driven to submission by starvation.
Constantinople has been burned out
nine times and has suffered from four
plagues and five sieges.
Poisonous Snakes Disappearing.
The uon-poisonous, harmless snakes

a shallow soil in which tile seed of
buttercups and dandelions often find a
lodging, borne by currents of wind
that doubtless caught them up in some
southern clime. These take root and
bloom when the great gleaming ice-
berg floats out to sea and is carried
southward, where the soft winds melt
the surface and give the plants the
moisture they need.
