1saT eI Young Yam Did you ever know a great man ox s successful mart who did not work Very clever people are sometimes indolent but they never do great deeds or identify themselves with the great things of life The boy who starts out in his career in pursuit of a soft snap in the way ofa situation never gets very far up the ladder of life He may have had a good deal of natural ability to be gin with but of what avail is natural ability to the boy who wont work I once knew of a boy who went away from home to fill a situation in a store secured him by a relative At the end of a couple of weeks the boy wrote home to a schoolmate- I tell you Will Ive got a soft snap here and do pretty much as I please I dont get downtown until after the other clerks and the boss dont say beans about it I set back on my dignity a good deal and let the other fellows do most of the work and they are chumps enough to do It takes me to pull the wool over their eyesThere was a good deal more of the letter in the same vein but it was the lastone the accomplished boy wrote from that store for he came home a day or two later informing his friends that the place didnt suit him The fact was that lIe had been politely but tersely informed that his services were no longer needed I dont know anything about his career after that but I think I can easily forecast his future and the fu ture of all boys who have this abom inable soft snap idea too greatly de veloped There ere no soft snaps in the real successes of life and when you hear ofa successful man you can set it down that he has been a worker Golden Days s a rs m DOG WITH A WOODEN LEG Wealthy Eastern Family Refused to Let Injured Animal Be Shot So far as known the only dog to possess an artificial leg is the thor oughbred fox terrier Nat the pride of the Merritt family of Milton Hills just outside of Boston and Nat real ly hasnt got his cork leg yet For a month past Nat has been stumping about on a temporary artificial leg whittled out of a piece of soft pineBut in a few days says the New York Herald ihis courageous little animal is to be taken to Lowell Mass where the Andrews factory for mak ing artificial feet and legs for th government is situated There a cast of his uninjured left fore foot tll mate of the lost one will be made- From the cast an artificial cork le will be made Dr John A OConnell the veter inarian of the Bowdoin kennels Dorchester who directed the ampu tation of Nats leg thinks the cork leg will cost in the neighborhood of 50 but that is a bagatelle to his own ers Much will depend upon the success of the first attempt at casting live dogs leg Several attempts ma be necessary before a perfect model is is not quite a year old came to grief on last Fourth f portth in Blue Hill avenue Milton Hills- an aristocratic suburb of Boston an fell 14 feet When the little anima- ryas picked up it was apparent he was suffering great pain Two local veterinarians were promptly summoned Upon examination it was found that Nat had fractured his right foreleg at the third index For two days all sorts of treatment were tried in vain Then the doctors said Nat s case was hopeless and recommended that he be shot The Merritt family are wealth They have a beautiful home their fancy cuttle graze on their rollin acres and all sorts of luxuries surround them but next to the tw Merritt youngsters the greatest store is set by Nat Mr Merritt a prominent dye importer of Boston is trav cling in India He valued the dog at 200 when he gave him to Mrs Mer ritt a few months ago Melrigaway Mrs Merritt imperiously ignoring the dictum of th wise physicians as ofttimes a willAfter further consultation it w decided to take the dog to the Bo doin kennels and see if the veteri arians there could do anything f Nat Dr OConnell the expert wh has officiated at most of the do eyx amination of the fractured member earnestf y hope ofi Dr OConnell was not MncuiM Jy He found what would correspond to a break in a boys arm at the elbow The fracture was a bad one The fore leg was swollen to twice its nat inIDr in discussing case a few days ago but what can a man do when a woman is in tears and chil dren look up at him with piteous ap peals I said Id try to amputate the fore paw but could not at that late day guarantee a successful issue of the experiment I was without prop er assistance or any sort of tempo rary artificial leg for Nat but we went to work After the amputation the dogs leg was sprayed with cocaine daily for three days while we scraped the bone and treated the skin flap around it After the treatment Nat would lie most comatose though we roused him and led him at regular intervals After awhile he rallied a little and when granulation set in and the wound was not too sensitive a rude stumpWithcollar around his leg and a harness to keep the wood in place we turned Nat looseAt he refused to move When he found he could not get rid oHhe innovation he bravely put up with it and gradually learned to derive sup port from it Then the Merritt fam ily refused to be separated from its idolany longer and Nat was taken back to Milton Hills The skin has grown firmly around the top of the woodand the operation is hailed as a success by the veterinarians who hive had a chance to examine Nat When a real accurately fashioned artificial lcg is made and properly ad justed the dog will look fairly re sentable and he wont endure very much discomfort I think The Merritt family is delighted over the result of the surgical ex periment and as for Natwell he hops and goes lightly around the confines of the spacious grounds and comfortable kennels of his owner parently not so much the worse o for his experience after all while his nineyearold boy and 12yearold girl companions are proud as can be over the possession of the only dog with an artificial leg FAVORITE NUMBERS Figure Seven Not the Most Popular in Many Nations That all numbers are not used with equal frequency by the various nations of the earth is clearly shown by M Delaunay a French scientist timee to a study of this subject according New York Herald eA marked preference he say everyivherefag r gum ors as ThjIohanimedan form an exception to this rule sine the number 3 is not used in them Neither in Turkey nor in Persia can any trace of this number be found and there are ceryfewplacesinEgyp Frencathynu use e number 3whereas on the other hand the English prefer2 and 3 and th 5y races Ifin that the Indians are very partial to the number 2 and its various multi tipies while the Chinese like the Lat 1use 2 and 5 more than any othe- numbers In France Germany Sweden Norway India South Amenc- and the United States the number but the coo iiriesintvhichitisused most frequently are Russia and the other Slavonia- lands In fine just as a horror of 3 is a characteristic of the Turks so a love of 7 is a characteristic of the Slavs rarelYare occa suchsas i Philippineso I learned to my surprise that the labs itants of Hawaii are very fond of th number 13 a fact which shows that they know nothing of the prejudice against the number Hungary and the Gypsies The Hungarian government is about to take

than was scheduled for that date and if the discussion that is being waged in the particular set interested does not lead to further catastrophes of the same nature it will be a marvel The engagement that has just been broken goes back everyone supposes to some time last spring for at any rate when the public schools closed and the young wom an who is a teacher went away for the long vacation she wore a big diamond on her left hand When she came back in September the ring was missing but the man continued to be as devoted as ever and apparently things were going smoothly A fortnight ago the engagement was broken and then the story came out and ever since as I remarked in the beginning the friends of the two sundered sweet hearts have been hotly debating the ethics of the case and are so far as I can see as remote from coming to a common agreement as over As schoolteachers when they are young and pretty and fond of having a good womjanwork long before it was time to collie back to town and when the day did arrive when it was necessary for her to buy a railroad ticket to Milwaukee she just had three cents and a postage stamp in her pocketbook There was no one of whom she could borrow the money and there was no way in which she could earn it quickly enough So she did what she declares was the only sensible thing to be done under the circumstancesshe pawned her engagement ring and came back to town triumphantly The first twinge of conscience she experienced was when her sweetheart inquired as to gavehimfied him at the time but after she had exhausted the possibilities of such tales as having the setting made smallerffone thing after another prevented her togethertoably would have been wisest to have done in the first placeshe told the truth And hewell as told you

American I have recently written a paper for the Forum on the aims and objects of the Atlantic Union which is an attempt to bring together more closely all the English speaking races I ventured to point out the part which prejudice plays when the American traveler without any introductions to English people comes over here to survey the land I quoted a man who recently pointed with scorn to our

Statistics may seem dry reading but a visit to a Honolulu schoolroom would be far from dry or uninteresting says a correspondent of the Boston Transcript Last June I went through the fine new Kaiulani pu lic school named for the Princess Kaiulani This has pupils from the beginners in the lowest primary to a class ready to enter the high school and in these rooms saw side by side children of all sorts of nationalities having the same care and training and all learning to be good American citizens Observin the little people in the primary de partment gave the clearest idea of the difficulties to be faced Hero were the little almondeyed bcqueued mites from China tiny Japs in pic turesque kimonas shy native chi dren bedecked in leis unkempt lye r othcrkinYS9fjl alone can sort out All these

Hawaiian teachers and summer schools arc held for the benefit of those who are busy during the yetbeenschools but doubtless will be before long There are several good ones supported by private generosity and presidedover by trained kindergart lers from the states The work in these schools is most interesting with all the queer little atoms of hu manity that assemble here Very little children of any nationality are charming In several places the sugar plantation supports a kindergartner for the children of its laborers Manual training is now receiving much attention in all the

tribute of human blood In the past year more than 128000 ani male were killed and rewards claimed for their slaughter and during the same period 25166 men women and children met their death through tooth claw and the poison of snakes To this terrible tale of human suffer ing mustbe added nearly 100000 do mestic animals which were killed by the same agencies We thus see that the loss of life is about equal on both sides It is interesting to see how the deaths are apportioned among the wild beasts First comes the terrible maneating tiger which is responsi ble for 927 victims the wolves come next with a total of 462 while the leopardclaims 394 Under the head ing Other Wild Beasts are com puted 1482 human deaths The rest of the grand total no fewer than 21 900 items of this terrible death list are set down to snake bite It is al most futile to expect any great re duction in the animal loss of life from poisonous snakes for the natives will never kill one of these creatures if they can
